Stopped in for comfort food and craft beer on a Friday night. Did not disappoint. Nothing fancy, but friendly atmosphere, great service and nice craft beer list. Family operated. The owner makes rounds at all of the tables - nice touch. They will serve any draft beer in a pitcher. Even gave us a sample before we committed to the... More

This place is family owned and operated and it really shows. The staff are always friendly when we come to watch the game. They have board games for families to play and the food is on point. Highly recommend them for any occasion, not just watching games.

Kaminsky's has really good food and most of the time friendly service. There are lots of TVs, so most sporting events are on and their bar is fully stocked.

Typical sports bar atmosphere. Ordinary fried fare. (Tasted like the oil in the fryers hadn't been filtered or changed in awhile.) Overpriced for what you get, but there's a reason for that. Kaminski's has offered Groupon-like deals and they accept the 2-for-1 Passport Dining card. So when you don't have one of these discounts, you wind up paying an inflated... More

I made the mistake of going here on game night. It was crowded such that there was a wait for tables. It was loud. Kids got restless. Once we were seated, the food took some time to come. I wouldn't have minded the above, but I felt the food was overpriced at $20/plate (small plate, I might add) - it... More

Friendly service, great food, and all the sports on the overhead screens that you can imagine! Happy Hour is lively with many good menu options; I really like the hummus plate. But don't miss the Barbecue -- that's what this place is really all about. Mighty delicious sangria too!

Just ok. I met a regular who stated that l ordered the wrong things. I would think Baby Back Ribs would be a headliner. Mine were very dry and tasteless, except for the sauce. The order came out of the kitchen in less than 10 minutes so perhaps, we are just doing a reheat. The potato chips were cold, unsalted... More

The BBQ is really good. Love the sauce and the portions. The mashed potatoes are especially yummy! They also have some board games in the sports bar area, which is really cool. Got both teens off of their phones and played scrabble before our food got there. Would definitely recommend this place.

We came in with a group of 8 , could only be seated in the bar area. Food was good, but a bit too pricey for me. Waitress was good, got the order mostly right. Don't know if I would go back. Food was good but not good.
