Our hockey team went during a tournament and the service was good. Food was good and lots of good beers on tap.

If I could only have gotten the server's attention, I would have asked that my ice-cold, limp french fries be cooked properly. And paying $16 for a mediocre, utterly forgettable fish fry is something I'll long lament. We also ordered a Greek Salad, which was...More

Visited last night with my husband and daughter, really looking forward to some wings. We didn't realize that they changed their wings. They are awful and mushy now. Very processed tasting. Also my husbands fries were extremely undercooked. That will be our last visit.

Talked to the operations administrator. ..sounded like she was reading what she was saying....she said the staff was spoken to about the situation and they sent an insulting $25 gift card in the mail to us that we absolutely will not use! Very disappointed with this experience. ...
