“Average food, average price”
Reviewed 23 December 2012

Big Bats has been a favorite for many years - especially their wings - but it is obvious things have changed recently and they are not all for the better.

The decor is fun, especially for a baseball fan, plenty of TVs to watch whatever sporting event you are interested in seeing. Restaurant and bar are both good size. Some parts of the restaurant are showing signs of age (ex - booths ripped and fixed with duct tape).

The menu has been updated; favorites like wings and crab dip are still there, added interesting items like flatbreads and a greek burger.

On our trip in Dec 2012, the food was simply average. My husband ordered hot wings; he said they had no flavor and they were served on a small plate with nowhere to leave the bones and without celery. Really, who serves wings without celery? My burger was cooked to order and very juicy, but it doesn't come with fries or any kind of side. Ordered the sweet potato fries - very glad to see them as an option - wish they were served seasoned with cinnamon and sugar. The iced tea was so weak it didn't taste different than the water.

Seems to us there must be a new owner or management that is working hard to cut costs. That's certainly understandable, but I don't think it should be noticeable to patrons.

“Pretty cool place.....”
Reviewed 5 December 2012

Alot of baseball memorabilia. Pretty cool to look at all the stuff. Food was good. The boneless buffalo bites were awesome! Captain and Coke served in a pint glass, not no small glass. Great prices. It's a good place for a small get together with friends to watch the game. You should check this place out. One negative comment. I ordered the buffalo chicken wrap. It had a good taste but, the wrap is served completely cold (chicken included).
