    I've been here many, many times and I'm always impressed with how good the food is for a sports bar. The space is huge and there are TVs everywhere.

    Decent food for a sports bar. The pulled pork sandwich is a bit light on meat but tasty

    Funny: The $7 1lb of wings special is pricier per lb than just getting the 2 lb order on the regular menu ($13).

    One of my favorite places to watch a sporting event. On the pricier side of food but above average quality. Beer towers and a great crowd for big events make this place a go-to for myself

    Come from a foreign country that plays hockey and want to watch playoff hockey? This is one of the few places in the Bay that has all the games. Only thing missing are Canadian beers.
