Some of the best chicken wings in Spokane. Large selection of sauces. Try the pretzel bun burger too. The place is great for game watching games. Plenty of big screen TV's and good selection of cold beers.

Varied menu for a sports bar. Really good service, good prices and the food was excellent. Found this restaurant by accident, looking for someplace else. Kimberly waited on us and was very friendly and helpful.

Stopped by to have drinks and apps with friends. We walked in during "Happy hour" and it seemed deserted. About a dozen people in the place and a very overwhelmed waitress behind the bar scrambling to get drinks for everyone. No server or hostess when...More
