We were at a soccer tournament in the area, and needed a place for the players and families to have a reasonably price dinner. I was skeptical when I pulled up to the Bullpen, but it turned out to be a gem in the rough. The menu is excellent and very reasonably priced for the whole family. They have great... More

Came here to watch the first game of the season for the first time and was really pleasantly surprised, nice and spacious with plenty of seats despite it being busy with people wanting to watch the game. Nice waiting staff and good priced drinks.

Met a friend here for lunch. This bar is a very good sports bar. Food is not bad either. They have a lot of TVs set up around the room so it's hard to find a seat without a view of the screen. Staff was friendly. Good place to stop in if you're in the area.

These was the closest bar to my hotel so I stopped by a few times. We even had a business lunch there one afternoon. I got the club sandwich and it was solid. You'd be surprised how many places screw up a club sandwich. The drinks are stiff and reasonably priced so it's hard to complain.

I choose this restaurant because it was very close to the Hampton Inn, less than a 5 minute walk. The food was great but the service was slow. I was most certainly the waiter in this transaction.

This was just a spontaneous get together with a couple of friends, we chose this spot as it was centrally located and had heard good things about it. It is very easy to get to and plenty of parking. There is lots of shops and activities close by making it a nice place for a get together. The first thing... More

I was staying down the road from this sports bar while on business. My wife and I decided to try it out one evening. I wish we would have tried it out sooner so we could have eaten at it a couple more times. The food was phenomenal, cold beer, and very friendly staff! If I ever return to San... More

Stopped in for the NBA championship. Plenty of TVs , reasonable prices on food and drinks. Prime rib was huge and very good. Can't beat it for 15.99.

This place definitely does not water down the drinks. I would recommend going on Thursday or Sunday for the prime rib. This bar has better food then most restaurants in the area.
