We were looking for a quick lunch downtown when we came across the Press Box. While not exactly inviting from the outside, we decided to take a chance and were pleasantly surprised.

Great local place for lunch or a casual dinner. Very much a "Cheers" type of feel. My girlfriends and I feel very comfortable here. Last time we were there, Tracy took great care of us.

Really good food in a lay back local atmosphere. Loved coming here with a couple of girlfriends for happy hour. Will took great care of us when we came for Sunday dinner and to watch our Astros.

Even though this place is well-known as a bar, their food is as good, if not better, than many other local places. Great burgers and sandwiches, and as anyone local would tell you, their tater tots are the best on the Island. Prices are also reasonable and portions are typically quite large. I recommend trying this place out.

Wanted a quick bite after walking around downtown. It's more of a bar type atmosphere. The food was quick but it was also good. I had the Southwest Egg Rolls and they were delicious. The price was average.
