I went here and had a lot of fun. There's a pool table. Music being played was decent. It was pretty crowded, but a lot of people come to bars to meet new people, so I thought that it being crowded was a good thing....More

Excellent food - try the turkey Reuben or the mango habanero wings. Good beer selection and the service is great. Lots of TVs and they'll put on whatever game you want. Pool table, juke box, and entertainment on the weekends. Smoking is allowed inside.

The food is really good, especially the wings. They also have the NHL and NFL sports packages. Great place to watch hockey.
