Came here with a group of 11 to celebrate a birthday. The only reason for 2 stars is the food and atmosphere were quite good. Everything else was abysmal. We started out with a round of shots and drinks for everyone. The shots came but drinks were forgotten about. When I received my beer, it was filled 1 inch from the top of the glass - clearly it had been sitting out long enough for the head to completely disappear. The waiter may have forgotten about us because he didn't come back to take our food order until we finally flagged him down. The food took ages to come out, and when it did, nobody had silverware. Once we were eating, the food was pretty good and definitely the best part of the experience. I was never offered another beverage, and my empty plate was not taken. To top it off, the restroom was out of paper towels. I certainly won't be back.

I ordered frizzled and drizzled fried chicken with honey and pepper gravy, galic mashed potatoes and seasoned green beans. So disappointed. Very little honey taste and zero pepper gravy, garlic potatoes zero garlic, seasoned green beans zero seasoning and they were cold. I wanted a strawberry daiquiri but go figure they didn't have a blender to make that. So i ordered a white zinfandel and only got a quarter glass way overpriced We asked our sever to clean our table 3 times because the first time it was wiped down with a stinky stale rag. Never happened. I had to ask 3 time for to go box. So 28.00 for this. Won't go back

This place could be great. Service is yourself and several servers that are not interested. Hostess was bothered to help, servers were not available, and food was extremely late and cold. Open tables were not available. Private parties filled the place, but not there yet...coming at some point. Manager didn’t know answers. Sold out of wings yesterday, really? All this is minimal to warm beer! Gssssh

I had the lamb pita. It was extremely flavorful, although a bit heavy. Our server was great! Great place to sit down for lunch if you're in town.

More than just a sports bar! Yes, of course the have all the sceens like you would expect in any sports bar, but they go so much farther than what you would consider standard "sport bar" grub. They have an incredible chef, and virtually everything is prepared from scratch. Charlene our server was great, when we were talking about the food, you could tell she loved the food there as well.

I do not recommend this place. Waiter was nice, but service here is very slow. We were told the manager would speak to us, but he never showed up. We had at least 2 hours before the show we were in town for. We barely got in the door before it started. Not the place to be if you have a time constraint.
