We sat outside in their tent as the indoor area was full. They had TVs outside with the NFL game on and heaters to keep the tent fairly warm (a little cool but not bad at all). Food was excellent! Service was fast and friendly. Will definitely go back again.

Food and service were all great! The noise level was quite high because people had to talk above the music level, it was too loud! I could barely hear the people that I was with.

We sat at a very nice roomy booth, and our waitress was very attentive. Two of us ordered the chicken burger, crispy, and other two ordered burgers. Everyone really enjoyed our food! The only down side was that the music got turned up a little too loud for my taste. Will definitely go back

I like the sandwiches here, but my family was a little behind on booking a table and this was fine. However, it's a bar and there was a very loud table. Our server was nice and prompt, the sandwiches and enchiladas were great.

Stopped off for a Bloody drink was made to order. Food was good; kind of bland Green Chile (got the Skillet Breakfast with Ham) but nothing wrong with it - I should have asked for some Hot Sauce. Sat outside as it was a beautiful day, a little loud with the busy road but that doesn’t really bother me. Cheers!

The Campus Lounge has been a part of my life and our neighborhood for decades. I love that the new owners have kept much of the tradition and have upgraded the menu. The staff is helpful and friendly. I am close to dozens of lifetime regulars we are grateful for that the tradition of The Campus lives on for the next generation.

This is the best spot you don't know about. And as much as I'd love to keep it a secret... restaurants cannot afford that in today's times! PLEASE, do yourself a favor and check this spot out. The specials are a steal of a deal, the food is outstanding, cocktails are next level for a spot like this, the service will make you feel like you're a member of the family on your first visit! I cannot recommend Campus Lounge enough. Whether you're watching a game or just want to get out for a bite to eat and a cold beer, this place has it all. Special shout out to a few of the staff who make every visit so great: (Jonie, Dakota, the Sarah's, Garrett, and Jeff!)

Hard to not have noise as we were sitting outside next to the big air conditioners. We would have liked to sit under the tent, more ambience but were happy to be outside and back at the Campus!

I’m so glad the Campus Lounge is back with better than ever food! The burger is one of the best in town and the French dip was delicious! Great tots too! Glad they have set up outside dining in their “beer garden” in the parking lot. We will definitely go back to sample the rest of the food on their menu. Great service too!
