If you want to go somewhere that is action packed, good food and cold beer, this is the place before, during or after a KU game. Can be crazy packed and busy.

Had lunch there and enjoyed it very much. Simple, but well prepared. The service was prompt. I had the buffalo chicken wrap and a side salad. The side salad probably would have been plenty.

They said they had just reopened under new management. Having not been here before we can't really comment on if there has been a change but overall had a great meal and the staff was helpful. I had the garlic Parmesan wings and they were really good.

Went to lunch there about 12:30p, not packed. 1 waitress, there must have been only 1 cook. The bar tender made me a double vodka cranberry (without the smirnoff I ordered) in a small glass. It was like rubbing alcohol. The cheese tots are good but the food wasn't that great for a lunch date. The table had sticky stuff... More

The last time I visited the Yacht Club as a much younger man, food was not on my mind. It was (and probably still is) a great party/sports bar. I met a friend here this week and enjoyed a pretty good burger. He liked the special, a chicken fried steak. I wouldn't go out of my way to go here... More

Lots of TV screens and a good local flavor sports bar joint. My group had burgers and all were pleased. Better food than your average dive bar. We were able each of us to see the football game -- the screens were everywhere. It was early and we didn't drink alcohol -- but the atmosphere was great and we'd definitely... More

This is an outstanding sports bar. The food is pretty basic bar and grill food but is very good and consistent. TV set up is great for watching games and the prices of everything are very reasonable. Steve, the owner, takes a genuine interest in the bar and is generally helping serve. Staff are very friendly.

My husband and I were looking for a burger and brew before a University of Kansas basketball game. We are beer people so let me lead with that. My first draft beer was flat and the staff happily replaced it. My next beer was also flat and tasteless. The staff replaced that one as well. To have two beers that... More

The best place in town to watch sports! I have watched almost every KU basketball and football game here! The TV's are amazing. On top of that, the servers are very nice. They all have great teamwork when I come in. If one of the employees are busy, another one will help out! The food is so good and definitely... More
