This is a popular sports bar. Always crowded with people on the weekends and game days. Love their nachos and sweet potato waffle fries.

The food was excellent and so was the service. I had a sirloin steak and my daughter had a shrimp pasta dish. Would highly recommend.

This restaurant is very similar to other chain bar-type restaurants. The food is average, the selection is average. There was nothing outstanding but nothing terrible either. I wouldn't make a special trip to go there but might go there again if in the area.

This was my first time visit and was very pleased with the combo sports bar and restaurant. Food was good as was the craft beer selection. Unfortunately, got a lousy waitress who never brought us our appetizer, completely forgot. I'll go back and still recommend...More

I am not the manager at the restaurant, but I do believe they offer call ahead seating...but your best bet would be to contact them in advance of your visit.

I'm not sure I understand the question? This Champps is in a shopping center with lots of free parking. On a busy day, you may have to park a little further away (the restaurant is near the theater so it may fill up closer... More

A modest little restaurant where locals meet up to catch the game and where neighbors become friends. We continue to take pride in preparing made-to-order comfort food every day. Private and semi-private rooms available for large parties.
