    review rating 5  My type of sports bar, have plenty of craft beer on tap, pool tables and plenty of TVs to watch your sport. Bartenders were down to earth and real with customers which if I lived here I would be a regular.

  • review rating 5  I've had stents implanted and am on a very rigid diet that surpasses vegan. Victoria, our waitresses was very knowledgeable about about their food and took great interest in making certain that their cook staff understood exactly what I could and couldn't have. The chef took the time to come to our table and speak with me just to confirm what I could not have. They could not have been more accommodating. Fantastic people and great food. This was our first time here and we will be back with our friends.
