    We had the best time at MYL! Our reservation was perfect, exactly what we requested. The band was fun and I love seeing all the little kids experience live music in a safe environment with their parents. We will definitely be back!

    We got there at 3:30 pm. Then they asked us to leave because they wanted to use the table for others that were waiting, even though we were consuming alcohols, food and watching the game.

    We went on 5 de mayo as first time customers. We had family in from out of town. The beer, ambience and music was great. Service wasn't very good, unfortunately. We weren't given enough utensils for our reservation party of 7 and had to ask twice before we got them. We received a round of shots that were not for our table and they didn't realize the error until after almost 10 minutes had passed. We didn't touch them but were told later that they weren't meant for us and if we wanted them that we would need to pay for them. We sent them back since we wanted beer instead of tequilla. Our food was just okay. The nachos were made with some kind of synthetic white cheese and didn't have enough ingredients on them to spread evenly on the chips. The special "Pazole" was not very good either. Two of our party ordered it and didn't finish most of it. The wrap that my husband ordered was flavorless as well. The fish & chips were probally the best. Even the poke was just okay (way too many pickled onions and crispy wontons, but hardly any fish). I will go back, but just for drinks next time, not food. I liked that it is dog friendly, however.

    Karaoke host had none of the songs we wanted to sing, was a little rude about it. Drinks were expensive and weak. Chips were seasoned weirdly and guac wasn’t guac, just avocado.

    Great place with a good area. Ordering is kind of difficult because you use a QR menu but it you have multiple people, trying to get that on one check is difficult having to pass your phone around.

    This place is awesome! Great for families to come in and enjoy at all ages. There’s a play place, arcade games, and booze for the adults! Big portions to share with friends/family and delicious drinks. We ordered the nachos, chips and salsa, wings, fish & chips, and Mac n cheese. We also ordered 2 pitchers of beer and the spicy watermelon margaritas. Those are SO good!!! Service was fast and very friendly/inviting. Will definitely be back. Thank you!

    Nachos were Terrible. Cheese did not taste right and not very many toppings besides being drenched in bad tasting cheese. Charged for salad dressing for my salad and pickles for my son’s burger. Almost line a low budget airline charges for everything. Then expected a minimum 18% gratuity when we ordered online and had to walk to find a server to give us silverware and plates.

    Was there for pro wrestling. I enjoyed everything until some manager/ owners friends were very rude to my kids, complain about it and obviously he wasn’t going to lose friends over new customers. I left pretty upset, manager did absolutely nothing about it, i spend a pretty penny there too brought my whole family, bill well over 170. Wish I had never spent my money there.

    Celebrated my son's 30th birthday. Had a great time. The food was surprisingly good, I expected ordinary bar food, it was definitely taken up a notch. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit..the ordering system was a little tricky at first but once I got the hang of it, it easy. I'd definitely recommend it.

    Party of 10 for my son’s birthday. The kids ordered and then went to play (10 year olds). Staff was very good. Brought us our beers. Nicely spaced out so we could relax and then arrived our lunch. Kids came back to eat and then we all went to play. Great food, great place and great staff.

    Overall really good experience. We've been looking for a place like this that tenders to both families and couples. Service was outstanding. Hamburger was one of best I've had in decades. Beer selection was good. Tequila selection was a bit short but that's only a personal preference. Loved this place. Will be bringing family from out of town here soon again. 😁👍

    Went to my Yard live to celebrate a friends birthday. Sat in the front yard so we could enjoy the music of The Mickie Arnett Band. The evening was perfect, great service, delicious food, and was still able to enjoy the four dudes brew IPA before it sells out! Until the next time….
