The wife and I wanted to try something new this past Sunday, looking for a pub with TV's to catch a game. We saw this listing and the reviews we saw weren't to bad so we "TRIED" to give it a shot. We showed up at about 4:00 PM and found the entrance and walked in. Our first impression was... More

This bar is one of the greatest, you can go in as casual or you can go as a sports it is the same. Drinks very affordable, great food, good music, and very nice and friendly people. It doesn't matter what day you go in sad or happy when you get out of this place you will be smiling :).... More

Blackboard was always know for great wings. The past few times I have had them they were horrible. I do not like spicy wings so I order the honey bbq or teriyaki wings. Both times they were so spicy that my tongue was on fire. When the waitress finally returned (after 30 minutes) I told her about the wings and... More

Super friendly and very funny barkeep. Great selection of beers on tap. Good place to eat and drink solo and meet locals. Very good chicken wings. Easy access and ample parking. Close to the airport hotels for the travelers.

My wife and I arrived in Windsor Locks, CT for our return trip to Houston after a week of traveling in the north east. We were staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Windsor Locks and saw the hotel recommendation for this establishment. We gave it a try and glad we did. Warm and friendly greeting by bartender and customers... More

I stumbled on this establishment when I was walking and looking for something to eat and it turned out to be one of the finest deals you could find. Big portions of food at a very reasonable price. The bartenders are awesome and will keep you smiling all day!

The blackboard has good food selection from apps to sandwiches/wraps, salads, and of course the wings! A decent beer selection with multiple varieties on tap all served by a friendly staff.

This is a nice place to have a drink with some nice music and friendly locals. The girl behind the bar was professional, welcoming and attentive. I didn't eat but the guy sat next to me had wings which looked delicious and he said they were good.

The bar is fine if you're looking for your standard bar - nasty people, but some normals mixed in. They often have a DJ and dancing and pool, and there are beer pong tournaments, which is pretty cool. Your standard bar overall.

I was charged 15 times the correct amount of my tab - I had ordered 3 dollar draft beers which would be a grand whopping total of $3 and was charged $45.50. I wasn't given my receipt before she just swiped my credit card, making it so I wasn't able to refute the total beforehand. Apparently the employees will put... More
