    The host at the front door with light brown/blonde hair, right arm full of tattoos and left arm half tattoos was absolutely disgraceful as a host. We made this booking ahead of time, knowing we were a large group of people and were made to feel like we were an inconvenience. There were many tables, including large tables up the top vacant and were told we couldn’t sit there, instead our family had to be separate on different tables. We were met with eye rolls, whispers between staff etc Our server was Bethany (I think) she made the experience better with great service. The pizzas were lovely, however sandwiches, hamburgers and chips were not enjoyable. We definitely won’t be back. We chose this place to celebrate my Dad’s 70th birthday and my husbands 40th birthday, as they both love that type of food and sport…. What a very disappointing experience for them.

    Service was really poor. I could have been sold more drinks if the sever had an opinion about what was good when I asked for a recommendation and checked in on our table at all. It was hard to even get water topped up. Saw other tables getting water and being checked in on but our server was just not around. Ordered the edamame appetizer and it was fantastic. The main was a Ruben with a soggy piece of bread that had sat too long before being brought to the table. Also ordered a pizza which was searing hot but tasty.

    I had a poor experience at this restaurant. I hate to make assumptions however it seemed as if the server didn't want to serve us. After waiting 30 minutes, the hostess approached us and asked if anyone stopped by. I said no and watched her tell the server to assist us. The server ignored her and serviced two tables that sat down after us. After seeing this exchange, I left. I didn't feel comfortable having someone who clearly didn't want me there serve me any food or beverage.

    The food was good and reasonably priced. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only comment is that their “sides” portions could be a bit bigger for the price (got about 1/3 cup of cole slaw for extra $4)

    The food was great and reasonably priced. The service was excellent. However, the place is really a sports bar (extremely noisy) and not a restaurant. Maybe we failed to realize this when we read about the place. If so, the fault lies with us. If it were me, I would get rid of the televisions or get rid of the live singer. The place is too busy with both.
