If you go here just to catch a game on TV and have a few beers, this is a pretty good place as there are numerous TVs and the beer selection is good. That being said, the food is completely average. There is nothing outstanding on the menu. The boneless wings are terrible. Other fair is ok, but nothing I... More

We like going to this restaurant because they always have special menu every week. One of my favorite food is Chicken wings. If you like the chicken wings.. this is the place.

Definately a bar with eats as opposed to a restaurant with drinks. This place was across the street from my hotel so I ate here 3 times during the week; nothing memorable but edible. Lots of TVs, good beer selection, OK service.

Under staffed for busy post buckeye home game and word series game. They told us this when we arrived they were slammed with big groups. Very loud but no sound on any screens until the series was in the 4th. Food was average. If you want multiple screens to view sports and drink, this is your place. Ample free parking.... More
