Great service; very casual dining; cold beer; perfect. About those wings; they're not on the menu; they are a dry rubbed; not sauced wing; this venue does not use frozen wings; so they are all fresh. Just fabulous; and not messy. I had the mild; should have gone for the spicy; but a little bit of bite. There are dozens... More

And when I say "unassuming" I mean pretty much a nice beer joint / dive. I have tried several items on the menu and they were all very good. The Philly Cheese Steak sandwich is a favorite. I get it with jalapenos instead of green peppers. The pizza is pretty good as well. AND the prices are very reasonable for... More

I stopped for a quick lunch before an appointment. I was in and out in about 30 mins. I had their chicken noodle soup and catfish sandwich with cocktail sauce to add some kick. Both were all that one should expect; delicious.

Waited an hour for a buffalo chicken wrap. It was stone cold and the chicken was dry as shoe leather. We went back after a bad experience before. Alway willing to see if things improved. Nope not at all. Don't waste your time.

We stopped by on an off night to give it a try and found the staff a little slow. But it was worth the wait as the food was darn good for burger fair. I like the casual atmosphere at their covered patio.

My wife and I went for a local Hockey fundraising event. The room was very small. We had to walk out side and go around the building to get food. Once it was ordered it took almost an hour. We just thought it was because of the event and everyone ordering at the same time. Now the food was good.... More

Management response:

I would like to sincerely apologize for the slow service. I am not sure what happened on November 27th. In regards to the hockey mouse races, our general policy is to not allow individual orders in the banquet facility as it backs up the food in our 2 dining rooms, as to walking around and calling them in we do...

Wasn't sure about the place when we drove up but walked into a comfortable, fun, and friendly place. We were hungry after a day of fishing and left with a full belly and a few drinks, and the bill was pretty small for three of us. Many TVs around the place, nice sports decore, outdoor patio with fireplace, and the... More

We met a group at the Alton Sports tap, and it is a very family friendly sports bar with an extensive menu. The employees are all very friendly.
