Good selection of US beers on tap and bottle. Sports pub atmosphere and food. Football on every screen - and the walls are cover with screens. Beer makes up for it.

stand alone box in larger mall area. Good size place. When you walk in ding area is on immediate right, bar area is second right. brick and wood, lots of triangle sports team stuff on wall, old beer memorbilia too. well worn, things seemed a little dingy. Service was ok, could of been better, one bartender working bar and serving waitstaff, so was busy. they have pool table and video games. Lots of Tvís. Definate game watching place. outdoor area can be nice int he right weather, though it is right by major intersection so there is traffic noise. Big selection of beer, nothing rare, but you should find something you can drink here. out of towners will find enough NC stuff to get some rates/ticks in. Food was ok, typical chain burger and wings type stuff. comparable prices for the area for what you get. I can see how this use to be exciting, classic family style sports bar.

This is a great little sports bar. They donít do anything in house, but they had 72 different brews on tap, heavily favoring the local brews. Great variety on taps, and their menu has them separated by type and with the full commercial description, so you know what youíre getting. They do have a few sampler flights, but I find those a little disappointing as some beers appear in multiple flights, and there are NO substitutions. Food was decent. It was bar food, but it wasnít bad. Service was about as good as you could expect on a busy Friday night. Great find when coming in from out of town.

Small chain with 6 locations; most of which are in North Carolina. This one is EXACTLY the same as the first one I visited in Durham. Basically a big sports bar in a large strip mall. 35 or so draught beers, several from small local breweries/brew pubs. The draught beers rotate a fair amount. 30ish bottled beers. Food is okay at best, but the wings are decent. Lots of TVís so itís a good place to watch multiple sporting events at once. Some of the bar keeps are beer saavy, but most are not.

This is a great place. Huge, with plenty of room outside and even more inside. Great draft and bottled beer selection, and the service is terrific. The salads and fish dishes are exquisite. There is also a game room with pool tables inside. Well worth a trip. My only beef is that I wish they rotated their beers faster. Iíve had every beer they offer.
