I stopped by for a sandwich and a beer. I had a Cuban sandwich that was absolutely delicious. There is also a good variety of beers on tap. Service was friendly, prompt and helpful. The gentleman sitting next to me ordered the special (steak) and I was jealous that I didn't order it!

I had a simple meal (cheeseburger and fries), but the food was good and so was the service. Had a good time.

The waiter was fantastic and one of the friendliest I have ever had and the steak was made to order and tasted great and the atmosphere was very country and throwing the peanut shells on the floor was very cool I just wish they would bring this chain to Ohio. Great place to eat.

This is a very large locals-only type sports bar. The menu is pretty "standard" for pub food, with the main draw being a series of specialty burgers. I had the Tinderfire burger, which is a half pound patty with brisket, cheese, fried onion bits, and chipotle barbecue sauce, for about $9. There is no question that this was a "hearty"... More

I had dinner for 1 here a few nights ago. I was optimistic due to this being the #1 food joint in town here on Trip Advisor. I started out with fried mozzarella fingers. I'm spoiled on cheese sticks because I have friends who hand batter Wisconsin cheese, so I know what the good stuff is. These taste like your... More

After not visiting for about a year, I was pleasantly surprised when I stopped in for supper and ordered a cubano sandwich. Ashley was my server and I had my notebook at the ready to record any missteps that she may make (I'm an ex-restaurant owner... it's what I do! Haha). When I was done with my meal, the paper...

Had lunch on a Sunday when the place was pretty slow but I really liked the feel of the place. Casual cool atmosphere with lots of interesting animals on the walls. Not your typical chain sports bar...has a local hangout feel to it. Service was excellent and food was very good.

Didn't feel like cooking plus I hadn't gotten anything out of the freezer. I had a great burger and wife had a patty melt. The first thing to notice on the patty melt is the marble rye wasn't saturated in grease. Both had a 1/2 pound patty which was cooked perfectly. Waitress was prompt, friendly, and helpful.
