1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

They were out of ribs and the ginger ale had no syrup. Bad start, had to walk out and go to BJ's Brewhouse next door.

We were staying at the Holiday Inn and Suites and found this restaurant that was a couple of minutes away and really liked it. The cheeseburger was nothing fancy but just a really good quality, great tasting burger. We also had the pork tacos and and the chicken nachos and everything was delicious. The service was really good and they... More

What a perfect place for our family to stop for a bite! Our water Yann was friendly and so accommodating. The snack food was perfect and the kitchen even found a way to make chicken parm for my son. There were TV everywhere so my men were happy to watch endless football. So glad we found this place!!

We spent the evening in Raleigh and went for dinner. Service was friendly, not trying to be too caring. Nice sportsbar, quite a few People around. Food was nice, not spectacular but nothing to critizise. It is great to spend time there with friends for having a good time.

We dine at the restaurant fairly often and have become quite familiar with the restaurant. It is a large sports bar filled with televisions and high and low tables and booths. Most of the activity seems to take place at the two bars in the restaurant but there is always a crowd dining. We ordered cheeseburger soup, a shrimp platter... More

My husband and I, along with a group of friends visited here while away. This was my first time here and their second. The service was good, the food was priced well and it also tasted good. No complaints, outside of the fact that our food took forever to come.

Very busy night of bowl games so very busy. The hostesses (2) seemed very perturbed we showed up. I am sure they were stressed. Between this and the very slow time to be met by a server. Food is okay. My wife really liked our server who worked two jobs and tipped heavily. So after the initial impression things worked... More

I was completely taken by surprise when I ordered a pint of the Hopsecutioner and it came in a 10 oz glass. I asked the waiter why ot didn't come in a pint glass. I was told that it was because of the alcohol content. I told my waiter that a couple of months ago that the Hopsecutioner came in... More
