Been there many times - loads of TV's to watch whatever game you wish - plenty of beer on draft and the food is reasonable priced and reasonably good -- will continue to go there when in the area for a decent sports bar-- really good in the summer as they have doors/windows that open up to Yonge Street

Very disorganized. Waitresses are rude. Came in after work once with few friends to catch up, but the music was so loud! It was a Sunday and there were not many people. When we asked the waitresses to lower the volume, she replied carelessly "the owner likes it that way, I can't". So we had to yell to each other and still weren't able to hear each other. Food is greasy. Cheap tasting beer. Place is messy. Lots of drunk people in and outside the bar. Don't go!

We came here 1.5 hours before a hockey game. The 20 minute wait was worth it. Although the multiple TVs were mainly on only a few stations, we were more interested in eating. The burger selection was modest, but we each had a different one and both were excellent. The french fries were very good. What made the visit extra special was the attentive service, which was hard to imagine given how busy it was. Kudos !

we noticed this on our way back to our hotel and poked our head in around 4ish to inquire if they felt it would be busy that evening for the hockey game. we were told its hit and miss. they did have drink specials - $16 pitchers of beer!
we came back about 15 minutes before Leafs/Rangers game and while NFL Play Offs were still on ... there were tables and we could see both games on the large screens. some of the tables have personal TV's, but some didn't work or the reception was not the best.
Server was helpful in explaining a couple of menu items and even made sure that we were satisfied with her suggestion on the wings (a garlic with honey) that were sticky but tasty! The Pizza was also good.
Prices were good ... small place but a good sports bar.

This place is good to watch sports, some of the booths screens are not working correctly and for a sports bar, it is not easy to see all the screens as they are placed in awkward places.

The restaurant is severely understaffed, some of the beer on tab is flat and they absolutely nickel and dime you on everything.

The service is slow, the food is just meh, the fries are soggy and there is no free refill on their expensive pop/soft-drinks. I got a side mayonnaise and it tasted awful. Their wings are ok, but nothing to wow about.

The restaurant is dark and not very nice and the washrooms are kind of dirty with broken soap dispensers and no paper towel.
