We usually visit Paramount for the bar and game experience. We have visited before and had food which was great. The game room has several different game types and is always a must when we visit. I have found that on the weekend, lots of kids are back there either standing around or taking over the area. Around 10pm however,... More

In town for a concert last night. Had a friend recommend El Barrio. Sat at the bar and realized the kitchen was closed and would be running at 5. Bartender was great and recommend The Paramount , owned by the same company. Walked a few blocks, and entered The Paramount. Nice spot, right in the middle of downtown. Basic bar... More

We went in for a drink and lunch. We only stayed for the drink because our server wasn't nice. He seemed put out by having to wait on us. As a former bartender, I pride myself in how I treat my server and how I tip. I hate to say that today was the first time in over 20 years... More

Had a casual post meeting meal there; over in the arcade room. Over the course of the next hour, we ordered random waves of plates....From Wings to Burgers.... And I could hear all 15+ of our group. Going on about how amazing the food was. In addition to eating off every plate that came out, I ate 1/2 of the... More

We came in on a Saturday afternoon for drinks and appetizers and were extremely impressed. They have an extensive beer menu as well as some quirky cocktails. We enjoyed the wings, hummus and "great balls of fire". We thoroughly enjoyed them all, but the wings stood out as our favorite. They were cooked well, and the sauces were excellent. Loved... More

Great drinks, good selection of beer, skeeball, pinball, and classic video games. What more could you ask for. Even open on weekend afternoons

I walked here on lunch a few days ago and had a fantastic burger and fries for $10. The only other times I have been here it was for beers and the arcade but the food really is the best part of this place.

This is one of the top comfort food spots in town. Burgers are awesome, but the pork tacos are killer. Drinks are great and the beer selection is solid. Easy to go with kids or adults.

Obviously a little tough to find a restaurant open on Sunday in downtown but this sports bar/restaurant is great! I had a forester burger but replaced cripsy onions with caramelized onions...one of the best burgers I've ever had. Their hummus is amazing!!! Service is quick and friendly, it does get busy and there's an arcade in the back.
