Went in for a beer, sat at the bar. Two bartenders with no masks. The Male bartender looked at me but was too busy sampling beer. The female bartender was eating food and licking her fingers while behind the bar. I got a coaster but...was pretty much ignored after that. It wasn't busy but they had other priorities on there minds. The place it self is the kind of bar I like but not sure I'll be going back. I was just looking for a beer. 😔More

They have a $2 basket of wings as their special on a Saturday. Great wings with lots of flavours to choose from.

Great specials, great service. Usually go there on weekends for Sunday breakie, free pool and the Caesars...Best maple bacon and salt n vinegar wings. The striploin steak breakfast with 3 eggs, home style hash browns and toast for $10 is huge and delicious...

I went there tonight with my son for a bite to eat and a drink, It was half full with 2 servers on. Our server greeted us right away and got our drinks. We had not even looked at the menu yet and she was...asking what we wanted. e waited 15 mins for her to come back and order. Sorry it was not that busy.... We then ordered and got more drinks. All was fine. Not once did she come back and ask about the food... We ate and finished our drinks and finally flagged her down to get the bill and a takeout out box. That was a 20 minute event and she even came back and said she forgot. WOW that was brutal. Another couple had come in during that time and waited for someone to take their order. They finally went to the bar and got drinks. It was not that busy!!!! My third time in about a year. New servers every time. I don't expect much for this end of town but hey......tonight's service was terrible! My son paid and gave no tip! Not a very common thing to do, but it really was terrible. Hope they get their servers sorted out??More

Don't consider Cowboy's Taphouse if you are looking for a clean facility with decent food and service. I felt sorry for the waitress at first, she tried hard to do a decent job but when the kitchen is that bad, no amount of placating is...going to work. The waitress never advocated with her manager and everyone had to pay for salsa and sour cream that never arrived, no one got a break on their food in spite of the fact that all but 2 orders had to go back to the kitchen at least once. The ladies bathroom was gross, I mean disturbingly gross, and the food was even worse when it finally did come. It's not like I even had anything challenging. Their special was tacos for Cinco De Mayo - I had soft beef tacos ordered, three times they had to go back to the kitchen because they were ice cold. Finally I just gave up and refused to pay for anything. Everyone else felt bad for the waitress cause she told them that she would have to pay for their food if they didn't, or if she offered a break or discount. That made me decide right then and there that this is one place I would NEVER, EVER go back to. Guilting your customer into doing the right thing when the boss provides garbage food in a horrid atmosphere.More

So yes...you walk in and at first you think...hhhmmm..do i want to eat here....Damn right you do!! I had the beef dip as it's one of those thing i always try if it's not he menu and these guys hit it out of the park....Not because it's fancy, or because they did something special to it...exactly the opposite. this was a beautiful beef dip plain and simple. Great sliced beef(not fatty at all btw) on a lightly toasted torpedo bun with REAL...yes REAL au jus...not from a package and then with those crispy home cut fries and some coleslaw it was just perfect. So much i couldn't finish all the fries (see pic) This is a true old school tap house....don't expect fancy furniture or hand sanitizer everywhere...just rock music over all the speakers, servers that love being here and are good at their job and far from pretentious as you can get. What you see is what you get...and the gettin is good.More

Went here for lunch, and the prices and meals were quite good, as well so was the service. It maybe a good place to go at night when the club opens but during the day when the lights are on it really could use a...good cleaning. Waitress was carrying around the bench seats and replacing them in different parts of the bar and then went and got our food order without even cleaning her hands, so you do wonder about cleanliness here. Only 2 other tables were taken so the place isn't that busy during the day.More
