    We had a reservation for a Friday evening. It wasn't super busy but there was definitely a lot of buzz, with several birthdays happening at the same time. Our waiter was friendly and informative, but they have just about no vegetarian options, so I wouldn't choose this restaurant again. The rest of my party, though, had no trouble finding something to eat. It took over half an hour to get our food, although the restaurant wasn't packed. When we asked about it, the hostess explained that sometimes pasta dishes can take longer because they only have a small area for preparing pasta. She offered us a free dessert to make up for our long wait. All in all, it was "fine" but I wouldn't go here again.

    We arrived and were seated right away. I had the Havana sandwich. Liked it alot. They use to make a special sauce and not they use a thousand island dressing instead. Making sandwich not as good as originally made. The service was awesome. Everyone was working together to service the customer. I even made it to work on time.

    We went for my son's 15th birthday on a crazy busy Saturday late afternoon. Disappointed they did nothing to recognize him or the celebration we chose to have at their establishment. We were seated next to a table of about 20 8-9 year old boys from a soccer team. Their parents were eating and drinking at their own table. While I can understand team outings, these kids were running around like crazy, bumping our tables, bumping our chairs, cutting in front of wait staff carrying trays, etc. Got to be a bit annoying. Sad that no parent addressed the issues as were not the only table who was having to deal with the chaos. Service was decent. Food was upscale bar food==burgers, salads, pastas.

    Had the Mahi Mahi and Spinach Pasta Salad (grilled mahi mahi topped w/ bruschetta tomatoes & mozzarella cheese. the penne salad had spinach, cilantro vinaigrette, capers, roasted red peppers, feta, & roasted tomatoes) beautifully presented. The fish was cooked just right, and the pasta salad was light and refreshing. It was actually better than when I ate Mahi Mahi at a beach side restaurant in Hawaii.

    Came here for dinner last minute, but was able to get a reservation 45 minutes before arriving. It was crazy packed when we got there, due to the basketball games and football games going on. I was impressed that they now have a gluten free menu! Was not impressed by the service. It was a little slow, and the waitress seemed like she was in such a hurry that she didn't bother to listen to some of my order, as shown when the bill came. Either that, or she tried charging more than she should have. Regardless, it was fixed right away. Would definitely come back, though.

    Champps is one of my favorite places to meet friends for lunch. The bartender, Heather, is always full of energy, super attentive, and cheerful. They just recently changed their menu to one that includes more "made from scratch" ingredients, as well as some new items. I always get the french onion soup- it is one of my favorites. The salads are huge and fresh, and they offer lunch sized portions. Lots of different items to choose from, and their beer selection is just as big and varied. I would come here to watch a game, or for a casual lunch anytime!

    I ordered onion straws in place of french fries. They were soooo salty that I could not eat them. The waitress substituted onion rings which were mediocre. She said that the onions were made fresh and the batter must have been too salted. I was disappointed in the food, but the waitress,jean, was very good. It is a very noisy sports bar. I probably will not go there again.

    Food and atmosphere were great, especially for a game night. The french dip sandwich was incredible, and all the TVs were great for the start of the nfl season. Our server was a little slow with service and forgot to ring up and bring the last round of beer, but it was a busy night so we didn't hold it against her. All in all a good experience.

    I made reservations, and we were promptly seated. The waitress made a good recommendation, and I took her advice. We ordered 2 mugs of Angry Orchard. Upon closer inspection, there was a piece of food stuck to the rim of my bf's mug. We notified a waitress of the situation, and it was promptly handled with no problems. My bf ordered the Firehouse Burger (description: This burger is piled high with red and yellow bell peppers, green chiles, poblano peppers, onions, chipotle TABASCO®, cajun seasoning and pepperjack cheese then topped with fresh sliced jalapeño peppers), which isn't accurate. The picture shown in the menu actually shows the red and yellow peppers, etc, but this is actually put into a blender, minus the sliced jalapeno peppers.

    My family and I were in the Milwaukee area for a baseball game and were wanting a spot to eat that was not too far from the ball park and was on the way home to IL. So I whipped out my I-Phone and checked the area with the opentable program. Champps came up as a well rated and not too expensive place to eat. So we put the address into the navigation system and found our way to the eatery. We almost didn't make it because the address was off the beaten path a bit and signs were blocked by trees and greenery. Anyway we made it in and as my family and I walked into the restaurant we were greeted very kindly by the hostess folks. We were about an hour early for our 6:45 reservation and the gals were 1. happy to see us and 2. cheerful.

    Service was great. I was a little disappointed with my food. I ordered the Juicy Lucy, but it was if all the cheese in the middle disappeared. It was more like a burger with no cheese. Drink specials were great & I liked that we could watch the Brewers game while dining. I would come back, but would try something else on the menu.

    First and foremost a bar that happens to have food service - very high noise level - they really need to rip out the "DJ booth" that allows someone to talk at the patrons far too loudly. My wife and I went there to have dinner and catch the BCS champoinship game in background while we ate, so we expected a certain "energy" level - but we really found the guy in the booth that shouted out advertising and other nonsense during the breaks in the game to be a bit obnoxious. Food was pretty good (great portabella mushroom appetizer), and our server was attentive and helpful.

    Adults having a quick meal before a conference in the neighborhood, we found the food to be of great quality and variety, the service excellent. Our server went out of his way to be helpful and to offer suggestions. Each of us had one of the wraps--Santa Fe, ahi tuna, and California, along with a side order of the soup (corn chowder). Could easily have taken a meal of just the chowder because it was fabulous! If we had been there for the Kids Day events that day, or for sports events at other times, we would have graded the ambiance a bit higher since the establishment was set up very nicely for those activities. We would not hesitate to return!

    We went to Champps to get a bite to eat, have some beverages and watch the UFC fight. To my knowledge, they are one of the few establishments to show the fights. The table was ready and waiting when we arrived. Normally we have an appetizer and meals, but this night we just had an appetizer and beverages. The nachos were good (nothing spectacular). It is a chain restaurant, so it is what it is, but the 3 or 4 times that we have been there, we always have good service and the food is good. Again, nothing gourmet, but it is good.

The staples are the sandwiches but the entrees are both sizable and good quality. We enjoyed it even though we were not wanting to watch a particular sports event.

    The restaurant is a nice sports bar, but the food was terrible. I had the seaside shrimp and pasta, which tasted very bland. I've had frozen dinners that tasted better. My date had the shrimp and steak, which was over cooked. We were seated in the bar area, which was open with our reservation. There was a large gathering going on in the bar area, which can be expected, but it felt like we were eating dinner in someone's party. Great selection of beers, good service, and a great place to watch a game.
