We stopped in at Chad's Place and it is a cheap dive with high prices. They forgot about our food order and we had to remind them about it 30 minutes after ordering it. The food was lousey and cold. We paid for our food and drinks with a cc and when I checked the charges online a few days... More

Beer was ice cold, and so was the bar tender We had visited this bar a few years back and know it can improve on this visit, although late in the afternoon the bar was pretty empty, and the service should have been out standing, but we had 1 beer and could see this place wasn't what we were looking...

Chad's Place has an excellent choice in entertainment! they do offer food, but it is bar food with a limited menue. The people there are very nice, i wish it was still in the village, but they did a great job remodeling the old IHOP.

I remember going to Chad's Place in the Village. It has now taken over the old IHOP. The bar is huge. Love it! It is clean and big! Super friendly staff. I went in there at 3:00 and the place was empty. I ordered the chicken strips with fries. Delivered so hot I had to let them sit. Very good!

Slow with low energy. Typical bar food, basic not great. Pool tables and good seating. Medium size dance floor. Bar drinks could be better, happy hour 3 to 7 but tasted weak. Nothing exciting. Good line dancing with lessons but it shut down by 9.

Thank shakespeare39
