“Classic good, Great Sports Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013 via mobile

The Alaskan Halibut is outstanding and the micro brews were plentiful, especially the arrogant bestard beer (professionally speaking) was delicious. Upbeat and not over the top, relaxed sports atmosphere.

“Gastronomic”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013 via mobile

We were ignored by a staff on the phone until another of the staff came togreet and seat us. Our waiter was polite and nice. The food was lukewarm aand not as good, both of us ordered the "boards". However the deserts weregood as well as the aappetizers. Overpriced.

“Neighborhood rib joint sports bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013 via mobile

Pretty formulaic rib joint with loads of TV's- all turned to the home team. Friendly helpful waitress. Important since one of our party had lots of allergies. Fried ravioli is a local delicacy and was tasty, but it's was a bit pricy for 8 small pieces. Ribs were quite good, although the brisket portion was a bit small. The bread pudding for dessert was the biggest hit. Area was safe for walking.
