Have eaten here a hand full (7-10) of times over the last three years. Have seen their service deteriorate, their business drop as a result, and their hours scaled back to just evenings (5-9:30) Mon thru Thursday. Service was not bad today, but we were one of only two tables with patrons in the seating area away from the bar. When the food does arrive it is always tasty, but boy are they slow. The wait staff catches the brunt of the criticism, but the real issue may be with the cook staff. Management must be aware of the ongoing issues here, not sure why they haven't taken corrective measures. Until the do, we will stop by every 3_4 months if only to have their Old Bay wings. It's the only sports bar around, business should be. Booming.

My beau went in last evening for a takeout order of fried green tomatoes and teriyaki wings. He stood 10 minutes by the "Please Wait to be Seated" sign. No one ever acknowledged him!!!

He grabbed a menu, headed to the bar, and in about five minutes, the exceptionally busy bartender saw him and got to him as soon as she could. She saved the order, since he was ready to walk out.

We like the food and atmosphere, but his experience was typical with respect to service, so be advised.

Staff is VERY friendly and the wings and fries are FANTASTIC! Typically no wait, corn hole outside as well as tons of TV's and touchtunes! There are also 2 arcade games

The service was terrible, they didn't have available an appetizer we wanted to order, they changed the good fries into new bad fries, the ambiance was dark and the music was a little too loud. We have given them many chances but we just don't think we'll go back again. They were hip and hoppin when they first opened but they have sorry to say gone down hill.

With Mike on the mike you can't go wrong. Rivals turns into a night out with food, drinks and fun atmosphere. Starts at 7:30pm but get there a little early to enjoy the fish n chips, outstanding Philly steak sandwich or the avocado crab cheese sandwich. Place features many kinds of local brewed beer plus the old standbys. At the intersection of Rockbridge Rd & 5 Forks -this is a good time. Wait staff is very good- they have come a long way since their openings only a few years ago and have found everyone to be friendly especially on Trivia Night. Go see for yourself.
