Old South Square location This place is a decent place to watch a game. There are plasmas and projection screens as well as pool tables, darts, and video games. Most of the beer are the standards. Nothing too unique. The food gets a higher rating only due to the 6 or 7 sauce choices for the wings which are pretty decent. Its not a bad place but I am concerned about their long term stability as it should have been busier on an NFL Sunday than it was. Oh yeah, they have NTN as well but like the rest of North Carolina they just don’t get it and only seem to have QB1 on during Monday Night Football. Its OK. Nothing to write home about.

This place is not worth going to for the beer. The best thing they had on tap was Redhook Brewery’s nitro porter. The food was poor at best. Service was pretty decent. Not sure how they stay in business.

First of all this a great place to watch a game! Tons and tons of TVs and NFL season pass make this THE destination for opening Sunday. The service is quick and polite but they could care less about beer. The selection is lame, mostly BMC and Pale Lagers with the occassional contract brew (the rating would be lower if they didn’t have Mashouse IPA the last time I went). The food just sorta sucks but the wings are pretty good. Overall, you should only go there to watch big sporting events.
