Great food and the best onion rings anywhere! Drinks get a negative rating however. I ordered a bloody Mary and it was very plain and boring. Not even a single olive or stick of celery as garnish!?!!?. Just a straw. Isn't that why you order bloody Mary's for the awesome garnishes? My go to drink when im hungry. So second... More

I met a colleague here after work. It was ok. For bar food there are better options. I wasn't expecting much but the bad service just sealed it for me. I continually had to wave down my waitress; I really felt she had no interest in customer service or getting a good tip.

The wait staff was awesome... There were (7) of us and we were able to have our own tabs without a problem... Very quick to check on us before our drinks were gone, and give us a replacement... We didn't order food this time, but have in the past, and the food is always reliable...

Have always loved the pizza here and this place seems to have every sporting event on the numerous tvs. A regular stop when in town.

Stopped for lunch today. As a single I decided to set at the bar instead of a table. Even though the parking lot looked like the the place was full there were still tables and plenty of seats at the bar. The bartender greeted me within seconds of setting down and took my drink order. When the drink arrived she... More

I had a dirty martini on the rocks and it was huge. Twice the size I was expecting. Food was good. Service slow. it was a Thursday night and they... More

Thank you for sharing Jan! I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your meal at the OP. As im sure you can understand, sometimes our servers get very busy with larger parties or busier nights so the wait time may be a little longer than normal. Thanks for your review and we hope to see you again soon! More

Average food in a loud atmosphere. Took my team from work to eat here for lunch. Service was quick, but it is very difficult to carry a conversation with people.

Went here for lunch with co-workers. Ordered Taco pizza. Was quick and tasted very good. Only problem was the temperature of restaurant. Freezing cold. Uncomfortable cold.

Great sports bar. 2 projector screens with well over a dozen HD flat screens.they will work with you to get you a TV near you to the game you want. Great service. Pizza is unique with large ingredients and thick cheese. Thick breaded onion rings are great.
