I should have consulted tripadvisor before making reservations. This was one of the worst experiences. A very very slow Thursday lunch, we arrived at noon for our reservation for a party of 10. Appetizers were good and came out timely. But our main lunch entrees were ordered by 12:20 and not served until 1:20. Medium burgers were so rare they... More

So I will start by saying I work in the restaurant industry and have never left a 1 star review of any establishment. The only reason I do so now is I feel it is a public service to other diners and feel an obligation to them. We arrived and the hostess / manager was kind enough to seat us... More

This a great place to meet up with a large crowd. Easy to get a reservation for a large party. Food is primarily pub grub... small plates, burgers, etc. They do the basics well but some of the more complicated dishes fall short. The restaurant turns into a night club in the evenings and children are not permitted after a... More

This is kind of a restaurant mixed in with a nightclub mixed into a Basketball Hall of Fame Complex. It is trying to be all things to everyone and it fails in some ways. But the food is good, so I wouldn't say don't go. Just take it for what it is, warts and all. It would probably be more... More

Sports bar menu very good-reasonable $-The manager-GEENA-fantastic-She is eager to please and make your evening as good as it can be!!!-Everyone always seems to be having a great time-noisy when busy--If you want to have a slower-more intimate evening then eat in the back room-MY wife and I like it there

We enjoyed a couple of beers, sitting outside in the cool early evening. Very pleasant. The waitress was rather hard to find so I went to fetch my own beer from the bar.

I used to go there regularly when I was in college. Now they can't decide what they want to be . Not a great sports bar, below average food .

I spent over a decade in and out of the food industry and think I am pretty forgiving and tolerant of servers just being human beings. The entire meal the server told us about the fight she was in with her manager, which was not news to us since they argued multiple times at the bar right by our table.... More
