My boyfriend and I had a great time here on our stop through Mt. Pleasant. Food was nothing to write home about but the atmosphere was fun and the staff very friendly.

Open face roast beef over real mashed potatoes was HUGE. Philly cheesesteak was a more normal size. Both tasted very good. Burgers are half pounders but willing to accommodate to make 1/4 pounder. Country fried steak, mashed potatoes and white gravy was good. Large bar area, 3 pool tables, with TV's all around the perimeter and an outside eating area... More

Food is mediocre and the service is okay, lots of young servers. But it is a great place for large party dinners.

Been here several times for different reasons and it has always been fun. They have had bands playing which always makes for a good time. We have also stopped here on a party bus for bachelorette parties and weddings. We have also been here as a family to just eat dinner. Pepper jack cheese balls are the all time best!

We love to go to the bar to relax and watch our favorite teams on their many tVs. The food is above average as well as the service. The drinks are top notch and served cold.

The steaks and burgers are pretty thin, and if you are not careful the kitchen will add season salt to most every beef or chicken as a normal procedure. Have to say though, without the season salt it becomes quite bland. Fried foods are treated to old cooking oil, and the waitress and bartend staff think they are cute so... More

Stopped by the Pressbox for a quick bite to eat and a beer. A very nice, good sized sports bar for a town of this size. The service was great and the Home Run Nachos were awesome. A large enough serving for three of me. Great place, drop by.

Bar food at its finest. Great place to take friends for night out on the town. New patio seating outdoors. Often has live music.

Only ordered a beer, can't comment on the food. One patio waitress was very, very busy, and impressively managed to keep all orders straight and all patrons served promptly
