Not your typical sports bar - great food with very reasonable prices. Always great service and friendly staff. Salmon is always a great meal. Breakfast is a must on weekends. Best to eat when school is out.

Wasn't there before any games, but felt like it would be a good place to try out for that. Good luck.
