Happy hour food selection was good. Tasted good and good selection! Alcohol selection was also great! When we first arrived, we were 1 of 3 tables that had customers (along with the peeps at the bar). Although there were 3 waitresses serving, we had to flag them down more than twice, and they hardly came to check to see if we needed more drinks....I think we would have had more drinks if they kept on coming back to check on us, especially since the place was not busy at all. Other than that, everything else was great! We would go back!

The food is good and served timely The staff was attentive but not too much. The menu is good with a nice selection of local beers. We will return soon.

While the food was ok, they could have better gametime appetizers. Also, many other local sports bars have complimentary house pupus for games but they did not. But otherwise fun experience.

I tried the chicken primavera and it was so delicious and flavorful!! It’s my new fav! We also tried the bread pudding and that was surprisingly good! They served it warm with cool whip and it was sooo soft! What would make Cronies 5 Star is if their AC was colder. Staff is friendly and manager is really nice!

It wasn’t crowded then and it wasn’t noisy so conversation was easy and comfortable. The female servers were very attentive and refilled our water often. The teriyaki chicken sandwich was to my liking surrounded by lots of French fries. We all left satisfied and full. By 5:00 the place was filling up with folks. Great place to go to after work!
