We and two other couples have eaten at Champps Northside when attending previous college reunions. It is very close to the hotel in which we were staying. This is a loud, lively sports bars with really good food! We all had different meals...some just had a sandwich, a few of us ordered from the dinner menu. The service was quick... More

Although I don't often go to a sports bar to watch the game, it was necessary today. We picked the right place. They take reservations, which was important since there would be five of us and we wouldn't be arriving until close to game time. The service was reasonable, taking into consideration how busy they were. We were there for... More

This was the first time eating here. I would not recommend this restaurant. It wasn't too busy, but we still had to wait for the hostess. We finally got to our table and our waiter brought our drinks and by that time we were ready to order. We got an appetizer and our meals. Our appetizer came back cold, but... More

I am not generally fond of Champps, but was taken to this location for a dinner recently. Either all the Champps have changed or else this is just a great Champps. The food was good and varied. The ambiance was nice....mostly sports bar style, but nicely done. I enjoyed the experience.

Had a business meet and greet on a Monday evening. Nice size, great decor, staff was attentive and prompt. Plenty of size to accommodate groups but it never felt to loud or too crowded. My first visit there, won't be my last 😊

I've been on a semi healthy kick lately to drop a few pounds before vacation so when my colleague wanted to drop into what initially looked like a sports bar I had assumed I was going to get just the usual sports bar wings and fried food. I was wrong. I got an awesome turkey burger and sweet potato fries.... More

The restaurant is very large with a neat atmosphere. I had the creole jambalaya it was very spicy, which like, but the salt was over the top. The server was attentive, not with low customer count I was easily served.?

We have been to Champps twice recently and enjoyed both times. The service was very good. We had a brand new waiter who did a great job - and another waiter checked on us to make sure our new waiter was doing a good job. The food was good both times. We will go back!

I was very pleased with the service I received from our servers Cassie and Joel!!! They did an excellent job for my husband's 40th birthday dinner. I was a little apprehensive due to some of the negative reviews posted. However, I still tried it for myself and I was glad I did. We had a party of 30 people and... More

The quesadilla is terrific. Very good appetizers and onion rings, fries and great desserts and ice cream.
