Fun bar with cheap drinks and a hockey theme. Did not have the chance to eat although the food looked good from my compatriots. Would recommend this place to a friend. Attentive bartenders. Pool and darts. Nonsmoking.

The Bubba Club Wrap is the best burger I have ever had anywhere! Who needs a hamburger bun with all the good stuff in this wrap! Good service and friendly sports bar atmosphere is good for the whole family. My only problem is trying to decide which television to watch. Nice choice of seating, warm fireplace and good music, too.... More

Saturday afternoon spent playing pool and drinking beer. Bartender was good, food was delicious. It got busy towards the end and the Tv was crazy loud but best atmosphere in LP.
