I was recently at the Urbandale location after work. My review is NOT based on the wings,which were over the top!! Large pieces,amaaazing grilled flavor,with the traditional sauce. :) Would give wings a 5 ☆ rating. My review is based on the bartender. Stopped in late afternoon,and saw no one behind the bar. He had been sitting at a close... More

Great chicken wings. Lots of meat and they are grilled rather than fried! Come hungry leave with leftovers and very full!

Anyways, unfortunately it wasn't that good to me. However, i won't boycott the restaurant and they did make the sandwich on a... More

Most of the food I've tried here is just fine. My friends and I go here (or order out) mostly for the wings, though. Inside has plenty of televisions. It's a real sports bar and grill. The craft beer selection, however, is terrible. Very, very few local brews. Too many out-of-state options for a local joint. Puzzling.

Good food. If you sit towards the nail salon everything smells like you are actually in the nail salon, so that's kind of weird.

The service here was OK, and the food was good but not great. Go here if you want a good beer with food.

The food was good. My husband and oldest had the wings and said they were good. We were all hungry when we got there so I ordered fried pickles when our server came for the drink order. We never got the pickles. As soon as we were done eating, the kids and I went outside while my husband paid the... More

My son loves the wings and the Chicken Quesadilla ... they never fail him on making them great. I love the Irish Nachos but have not always had consistent product when I order it. The staff is generally friendly and efficient but when the location is busy, they make mistakes and do not offer apologies.

The Reuben sandwich was tasty; my dining partner had the prime rib sandwich which she said was "okay." We both had potato salad and agreed it was very bland. We split the brulee-spongecake dessert and should have saved our money. A pre-packaged sponge cup with a microscopic dab of some kind of filling, all covered with Hershey's syrup. Our server...
