Court side has lots of beer options but only red or white wine. The place defines dive bar. The patrons are friendly. The staff a little surly.

We were in town staying in a local hotel to watch some ball games. We decided to walk to the Courtside for some cold beer and food. It is a classic dive bar with red lights and everything. The beer was cold and pizza hot...More

I describe this place as half bingo hall, half VFW hall. Some of the booths are lined in carpet, there are TVs everywhere and you can get a pitcher of PBR with a large cheese pizza for $16.75. There is never a homogenous crowd here...More

The Courtside is one of the funnest places I've ever been too. There's karaoke on Friday/Saturday night; and they used to have a trivia night - not sure if that's still running. What it lacks in 5 star looks, it makes up for with awesome...More
