Our waiter was very nice. The atmosphere was good. The food was what you would expect in a sports bar.

Interesting decor with lots of historical sports oriented photos of past presidents. Decor was nice, and quality and number of TVs to watch games was adequate. Nice selection of beers too. However the service was slow, and the food when finally delivered was a disappointment (even by sports bar standards).

Try the fish tacos, which they have on the menu as "perfect to share." You can share, but I liked eating them all. Otherwise, the service was OK, not too peppy, but good. I'd go back to give it another go since the menu has enough attractive options.

Nice selection of bar food - served promptly and tasty. I had the shaved primed rub sandwich that was their version of a cheese steak. Their old fashion was excellent.

We were staying at the hotel and this was an easy dinner option for us. Nice little sports bar and the food was very good. Nothing special but a solid option for sure.

Excellent setting with an entrance inside the Renaissance Hotel and an outside entrance. The menu selection was great and the variety of wings, made them hard to resist. The entrance from within the hotel is directly right of the hotel bar and can be easily missed.

Great atmosphere and with a full bar. Decided to have lunch. Ordered the Crab cake burger. It was a giant crab cake. For $21.00 is was worth it. Delicious:) please see photos.
