This is an awesome place to go have a nice casual meal, watch your favorite sporting event and of course have a drink. There is plenty to entertain you with the decor.

We used to frequent this place every weekend, but the beer prices are not a good value at $6 - even with the $1 discount on happy hour. And, unfortunately, their pint glasses are mostly 14 ounces - it is even printed 14 ounces on...More
