I had to visit after some joking between me and Nicerinperson. big place, bar is straight ahead as you walk in rectangle shape with chairs for twenty or thirty people, a few booths in the bar area. Large dining area on the right, pool tables and game rooms on the left. Lots of TV’s, classic sportsbar. Brick and wood motif. Smelled smokey even though I didn’t see anyone smoking. Service was good. It was a Tuesday afternoon. There where clearly some regular lunch folks who got most of the staffs attention. Small Micro drafts available, Big Boss, Duck Rabbit are what I remember for locals. I had the boneless buffalo wings, they were fine. Prices are in line for this sort of place, maybe a tad better. I was told this place gets crazy for wolfpack games. No reason as a beer geek to stop here though.

Good place to watch a football game or play trivia, QB1, or Poker on their NTN network. Some hard to find beers on tap that rotate now and again so that there is always a nice variety as well as the standards. Food is your standard bar fare but not overall is pretty good.
