Plenty of screens broadcasting US sports, large choice of beers, burgers and salmon on the grill... You see what kind it is.

Ok place with options of sitting outside or inside with AC. Beer is more on the expensive side but guess this is because they are opposite the Garden City by Hilton and therefore can get away with prices. has a selection of food and snacks available.

Second time I've been to this restaurant. Food quality is not consistent. Burgers are OK. Really disappointed with the brisket.

For entrées, we had Half Rack of Baby Back Ribs. Oh my God, were these ribs delicious. The sauce was excelent, the texture was very soft, completely delicious. One of us had... More

Great place for ribs and pulled pork. Portions are on the small end, given the type of cousine. Great service and taste. Moderate pricing, given that Panama restaurants have gotten pricy.

I went for lunch today. I have been there a few times before and it was always alright. I was the only one there and sat down. I ordered a California burger. A few minutes later a group of 13 came in so switch tables so they would have space. On the new table I saw their lunch menu and... More

Really great food. Clean restaurant and right across from the Doubletree where we were staying. Although the service was slow, the food was made fresh. 4 stats because of the wait times.

Food ítself is nothing to deserve remembering! It is another normal American style hamburger joint. But what did surprise me was the long wait for the order and also to pay the bill. Valet parking available, service is rather indifferent. Overall not a good value for your money.

I believe this a convenient place to have lunch, more if you are near Business Park area. Their star product are the hamburgers, which was what folks that were with me had. This time I had a good chicken sandwich. I see the service has improved from my last visit and this is the driver for the review as very... More

Since we were staying across the street (Doubletree Panama), we decided to give it a try because of convenience. What a pleasant surprise. It is pub with the usual pub fare and it is done well. Service is decent with the exception that I ordered ceviche and it never came (we also were not charged for it, so that is... More
