Went to watch college playoff game. I had an appetizer and beer. Enjoyed the bartenders and their quick service and attention. My food was good and I was recommend to them through a friend who indicated that their food was good. Definitely great for sports.

I will say that, one of my favorite dishes, the tuna, is getting a little inconsistent, in quality. As this dish has the fish as the superstar, it is tough to sell it with additional items being the stand-in. Maybe work on getting a fresher fish, or teaching cooks how to cut it properly, so you are not eating veins.... More

I loved this place! I ordered the Ruben sandwich and had the garlic and parm wings for an app. The house chips are delicious. It was such a nice visit that we stopped back later the same night and had cocktails and the nachos. The cocktails are 2 for 1!!! We were a little disappointed with the nachos because everything...

We arrived and were told we would have to wait 20 minutes to be seated, so we asked if there was outside seating? We were seated outside in a just a few minutes. The outside seating was very dark,...

Staying at the Country Inn across the parking lot so we walked over here to have some drinks and nimble on some food. Looked to be a decent sports bar with plenty of TVs in view. Service was decent but I didn't really care for my wings I ordered.

The food is very good and the atmosphere is perfect for a sports bar. There are lots of TVs and drinks are reasonably priced. With a very friendly staff, it's a great local place to visit to watch sporting events or not.

Geckos has been a Monday night spot for me for over a year now. Burger Monday is a great deal. For $5.00 you get a delicious burger and fries. However, I noticed the All You Can Eat BBQ on Tuesday night. It features pulled pork with your choice of sides for $9.99. I decided to try it. SO glad I... More

This restaurant is always so popular you may have a short wait for a table. It's always worth the wait, even tho there are a couple more restaurants very close by. The food is always great, as is the service. The vast (and very efficient) waitstaff is very accommodating and always extra friendly. When we are here for vacation this... More

The burgers were excellent! We both had the Bucs Burger - fresh, loaded and both fries and chips were great as the potato choices. The manager/owner stopped over twice during our visit. Our waiter was very attentive and willing to please our visit.
