We have been to this restaurant three times. The food is great - atmosphere is great
The service is hit and miss. Service will be good unless there is a large party present. Unfortunately we were there when there was a meeting of a classic car club just adjacent to our table. Their needs took constant precedence over ours which was quite frustrating. Especially when your order is prepared wrong and needs correction

This place has so much potential as my family has been coming here for years now, but it always dissapoints. The staff and service is always outstanding but it misses on the things that could make this place great like good food, good drinks, and patrons. The food was once really good but it has gone downhill fast and I want to come back because it's a sports bar and close to the house but until the food and drinks get better I'll have to take my business elsewhere.

Thoroughly enjoyed the brisket burger for lunch - service was fantastic and multiple big screen TVs is always great - I’ll be back

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.
