Big on steaks and TV monitors for all sports. My lamb chops were of uneven thickness and so one was more done than the others. My husband's ribeye was thin and almost overcooked. Vegetables were uninspired. Wait staff was helpful and attentive.

We had a lovely evening and a wonderful meal. Our server was a bit dingy. All of our meals were delicious. Two of us enjoyed the specials.

I keep coming back to Joe Theismannn's "sport's bar restaurant" again and again. There are daily specials and the food is consistently first rate. The environment is informal and very friendly. The staff is especially helpful in recommending one of the several "to die for specials." If you live here or are visiting, you cannot go wrong at Joe Theismanns.

My family and I go here often especially during football football season. The food is always good and the prices are reasonable. The wings are especially good we get them extra crispy with sauce on the side. Burgers are great. We have never had a bad meal. We even met Joe Theismann one night he gave my three year old... More

This restaurant has been in the same location for years. Its just across from the King St Metro which makes it very convenient. It can get very busy so its best to make reservations in advance especially if you plan on going on the weekend. The food is generally very good and the service is good as well.

This place had a nice ambience and was clean. The food was good but some was a bit on the expensive side for some things...but great location and I'd recommend it.
