“Good Food - Not Great”

I stopped by on a slow night (Tuesday) after having been provided with their address as a recommendation. The parking lot was packed and it took once around to find a spot. I sat at the bar for fast service and was a little taken back. Only one bartender and he hustled his butt off. He mentioned something to a local about having to terminate someone from the bar area and someone from behind the stove.

I thought it was a slow night but despite his best efforts, it was a really slow night for service.

I ordered a chicken and cheese Philly sandwich with onion rings. The bartender said I also would get the choice of a soup. Although I wasn't in the mood, I selected the chicken pot pie. It was excellent! The chicken and cheese Philly sandwich was also good. They skimped on the onion rings, but it was okay.

Better than average - but I wasn't expecting too much.

Lots of televisions and apparently a very busy place with a lot of staff when its later in the week and on the weekend.

If I'm ever back in Williston, I'll give it another shot.

If you want to go watch a game, this could be your place, but if you want good food, service or anything remotely close to those. I would look elsewhere......

Its a nice clean sports bar but the food is too GREASY. A good variety from the Grill but it all comes with way too much fat. Heartburn guaranteed!

I've been coming here for a couple of years, mostly to watch a big hockey game on the MANY televisions at SportsGrille. The food is great, atmosphere is fun, and there are great nightly specials that keep it interesting. Definitely recommend for a fun evening!

The food was GREAT! I had the onion ale soup and the chili mac & cheese. I am very picky about the soup and I was pleased. My husband had chili and a mac & cheese. We shared a small plate of wings. The wings are huge! 3 each was plenty. Mix them with fries and you'd have a whole meal. I had a great appletini. Overall our experience was great. Good staff, good food, it was served fast and hot, great bar service. I would go back anytime. If you're looking for good comfort food I would recommend this place. Thanks to all the staff!
