We went to watch a football game and we are glad we found Brick Alley Pub. Good TVs in the bar area. My wife was impressed with her blackberry sangria. The spinach dip and calamari were very good as well. Hard working bar staff.

Stopped in for lunch & the salad buffet was wonderful, but they could definitely add some protein options for the price.
