    Best food I’ve ever had in a sports bar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was loud because the Michigan/Ohio State game was on- so that was fine with us.

    The pizza and salads were very good. My wife's tuna was exactly how she liked it. The pizza and salads were brought out together, so the pizza was a bit cold by the time I started eating it. Bringing all out at once is not the best.

    We reserved a six top for inside so we could watch our favorite teams on multiple TVs. The Session Room did not honor our reservation! we had to eat out doors, under a tent. The food here is sub-par. None of the dishes we'd ordered was any good at all. I've attempted many times to find something I like on the menu, but have been unsuccessful. When I asked if I could bring a cake in for the guest of honor, I was told that a $25 cake cutting fee was required. (fine, that's typical... but unnecessary. ) Bathrooms well designed, but unclean and disgusting. I will never spend me money here again.

    This is a fun place to go! The food is excellent, as well as the service. Indoor and outdoor seating is available. Although busy traffic on Jackson Rd. causes the noise levels to be high outside, it is a pleasure to eat in their large tented area. Love their beer flights and the opportunity to try different breweries and varieties. Ready to go again!
