Stopped for lunch today. As a single I decided to set at the bar instead of a table. Even though the parking lot looked like the the place was full there were still tables and plenty of seats at the bar. The bartender greeted me within seconds of setting down and took my drink order. When the drink arrived she... More

I had a dirty martini on the rocks and it was huge. Twice the size I was expecting. Food was good. Service slow. it was a Thursday night and they... More

Thank you for sharing Jan! I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your meal at the OP. As im sure you can understand, sometimes our servers get very busy with larger parties or busier nights so the wait time may be a little longer than normal. Thanks for your review and we hope to see you again soon! More

Average food in a loud atmosphere. Took my team from work to eat here for lunch. Service was quick, but it is very difficult to carry a conversation with people.

Went here for lunch with co-workers. Ordered Taco pizza. Was quick and tasted very good. Only problem was the temperature of restaurant. Freezing cold. Uncomfortable cold.

Great sports bar. 2 projector screens with well over a dozen HD flat screens.they will work with you to get you a TV near you to the game you want. Great service. Pizza is unique with large ingredients and thick cheese. Thick breaded onion rings are great.

Grinders are big but difficult to finish. Sides were on the wrong plates. Solution...gave us extra plates for us to fix ourselves. Refilled my ice tea but not my wife's. Didn't add more ice so it was warm. Return unlikely

Came here for dinner during a recent business trip. I started with a cup of very satisfying chili, then had the 9" taco pizza, which had taco toppings (meat and chips) loaded on top of the pie itself. I really enjoyed it, but could not finish because of all of the toppings. Service was good and the prices were reasonable.

Good sports pub food. Especially like that there is plenty of attention paid to UNI and not exclusively those other state schools. We had a good meat pizza and yummy onion rings.
