The prices are right! Open, loud, fun bar. Many TVs. Wood fired pizza, good wings. Large beer selection and menu.

Rivals has wings called "baked crisp" and they are fabulous. Kai at the bar is amazing. He is always aware of what is needed and does it. We call him the energizer bunny. Pizza is yummy and salads are good. We like the atmosphere.

Typical bar food. Almost everything is deep fried. Drinks are okay. Service can be slow at times. Nothing exciting.

We ate at Rivals on Monday and had a bad meal, bad service and could barely hear each other even though the place was half empty. Mexican night is a joke. $7 nachos with beef were made with liquid "cheese", like you might expect at...More

Food used to be better years ago when we lived in Williamsport. I think they need to change the menue and add few thing. Service is very good. Food blah and wings like any bar wings.
