We dine here in the bar area regularly to catch sports on numerous televisions, but also for the consistently quality food, and the outstanding service. Our go to handlers are Aysa and Connie, who always know our style and keep ahead of us. Menu changes,...More

Fortunate to meet John Pezino, general manager, plus Chris the chef. Nothing too much trouble. Go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Two top guys, oh, and by the way, the food was great too. Will always remember the fish and chips...More

I had a craving for a salad for lunch. Champs has a nice Tex Mex Caesar salad. I had it with blackened salmon. The salmon was blackened and fried just right. Nice salad not overdressed with Caesar. Some thin tortilla strips mixed in. I would...More

Always good food & good service. I generally get the salmon or steak tacos which are both awesome. Portions are great (you can usually get 2 meals out of 1). We frequent here generally about once per month.

We were pleased that the restaurant is quiet and we could enjoy our meal without having to raise our voices to speak with one another. We were surprised at the limited menu selection. However, our food tasted good and met our expectations.

The place is a sports bar attached to a hotel with the best wings in town. Food is always reliable. There is indoor seating in the bar area with lots of TV's. The dining room has TV's but not as many. There is also outdoor...More

Had a very good server there, and the food and drinks came out promptly and as ordered. Quality of food was just OK, considering the cost, which was appropriate.

A couple of hours of eating and catching up with friends while watching the Cubs on the many TVs seemed like only a few minutes. The "bar menu" offered a great variety and the food was excellent. The staff was very friendly, the service quick...More

Met at the door, seated quickly in a full bar eating area, with a dozen screens. Lots of beers on tap, excellent menu selection, better than hotel food. Great service, which is the most important aspect of dining anywhere.

First of all, they didn't bat an eye when we let them know we had a service dog. They were quite accommodating and kind, very friendly and the breakfast buffet was awesome (would have loved to have seen bacon though lol).

The slightly irreverent attitude has become our calling card over the years, doing things the way we always have regardless of convention. We're still making fresh hand-crafted burgers, roasting our own turkey and chicken, slow-basting our falling-off-the-bone-tender ribs, and hiring the friendliest people to be part of our team. Why bother? Because bigger and better isn't just an attitude. It's a commitment to everyone who comes through our door.The party is still going strong today. The burgers are still huge, the beer is still cold and with 30 draught beers and 30 flat-screens, we're the best place to watch the game!
