We went here for a late lunch . We ordered burgers which were awesome. There were only a few other people there but very friendly bartender/waiter. We could have lingered much longer due to the cozy atmosphere. Prices on the menu were very reasonable. I don't think anything was priced over $10.

We came for the Cowboys v Packers NFC Playoff game. We has "The Rocket" which is the Philly Cheese Steak sandwich plus my wife had the hamburger. Both were huge, tender, great tater-tots. This is a perfect bar place to eat, drink and catch some sports.

The menu is ample in size and features a mix of sandwiches, comfort food and new American style dishes. Everything my friend and I had was flavorful and well prepared. Prices are also good. Would definitely... More

Nice little bar just off the strand. Several Tv's with sports shows. The afternoon bar tender is very friendly and makes the time you spend there fun. Food is decent if you need a little snack.

We were looking for a quick lunch downtown when we came across the Press Box. While not exactly inviting from the outside, we decided to take a chance and were pleasantly surprised.

Great local place for lunch or a casual dinner. Very much a "Cheers" type of feel. My girlfriends and I feel very comfortable here. Last time we were there, Tracy took great care of us.

On Saturday, my friends and I wanted to try a different bar than where we routinely go on weekends. So we all agreed upon press box. we were met be an older gentleman who was serving as the doorman and bartender. Immediately, he was not welcoming, despite an empty bar. We were a group of 25-30 year old medical professionals... More
