Went on Sunday, 10/26, to watch the Patriots game. Nice bartender , Mitch, but the place itself wasn't appealing. Dim/dark inside, maybe 20% full. Didn't look kept up. And my hamburger gave me an upset stomach. Went to The Old Chicago for the 2nd half and had a much better time: clean, bright, 2/3 full (families and couples mostly), with... More

We loved this place when it first opened and we were regular customers. We loved that it is truly a sports bar and, initially, the food and service were good. However, the service and food have gone down hill dramatically. I'm not sure why people have good comments on their burgers as we have found them to be mediocre at... More

We came because my in-laws said it had great burgers and she was right. The burgers are very tasty and the chips are fresh. The side salad I ordered was fresh and large. I recommend this as a great place for burgers and catching up on sports with several large screen tv's.

Stopped in for a quick lunch. The Ty Cobb salad and the Pork Chop special were both outstanding. The service was also very good. Nice atmosphere with lots of TV's.

Staff very friendly and food was good. Loved the atmosphere. Great sports and hanging out place. Sometimes the staff need to more in tuned with the customers rather than hanging out at the front talking with friends etc...

Extremely underwhelmed. Average food, average service, and the drafts at the table are gimmicky and most do not function properly. They're always having issues with their draft system... which is ironic.

The Daft is a great sports bar and has a great atmosphere. The service is pretty good, but the food is just average. It is a fun place to hang out though, especially if you are watching a sporting event.

This was my 4th visit to The Draft. I always have one of their sandwiches served with the homemade potato chips. The chips have always been fantastic. Thick cut and fried on the premises. Today I got chips that were almost like eating air. I hope this was simply a bad day for the chipmaker and they have not changed... More

The Draft is a unique Sports Bar with Draft Beer tables all around. Many sports stations are displayed on screens all around the restaurant so that you can view multiple sports if you want to. The service here is a little slow, but if you are not in a hurry the food was delicious. I ordered the 1/2 Club Sandwich... More
