the drinks are overpriced and so is their terrible food. I waited forever and a day just to get the food and when i requested something extra, it never came. The manager was working the bar and was horrible. His attitude was rude and non-attentive. As a former waitress i was disgusted at the service. I usually tip well, being in that industry for so long, but I ended up walking out and leaving nothing, because it was so disappointing and the staff undeserving.

Food has gone downhill. I went a few years ago to watch the Kentucky Derby and had a decent meal. Now, the burgers are flimsy and everything else is below-average. It's not a bad place to have a few beers and watch a game, but it's a sports bar, not a restaurant.

I love this restaurant. It is a great family-friendly, neighborhood place to go eat. The salads and home made pizzas are my favorite. They also have an awesome selection of draft beers!

Great food and relatively friendly service. If you want to host an event with them though, make sure to get everything in writing. The owner and supervisor do not communicate with each other and things that were agreed upon one day can be completely ...

Drinks are definitely at the right price... good liquor selection but mostly domestic beers. Looks like they're kind of under renovation... but will be better looking in there when they finish. Food seems fresh and good tasting, decent prices, but ...

This establishment should not even be considered a restaurant. This is an Adults Only establishment that does not allow They would not even seat my group and would not honor or refund gift certificates that my wife had purchased and we were not allowed to use because my son was with us at 5:30 on a Saturday afternoon.
The manager was rude in explaining that they do not allow anyone under 18.
The age restriction is not listed on their website, was not relayed in a phone conversation before we decided to visit the location and they were very rude in delivering the message in person when we . They did nothing to correct their deception in advertising or to rectify the situation that was caused by their deception.

To say this is not a family friendly establishment is a gross understatement. This is an ANTI-family establishment.

This establishment chose to shun families in favor of getting a variance to allow smoking. By allowing smoking, they have chose to become and ADULTS ONLY Bar and should change their name accordingly to remove the cafe from their name to remove any question on what type of establishment they are.

Please choose to spend your money elsewhere at an establishment that doesn't discriminate against families and show the sports rock cafe that their choice to shun families was a poor choice.

All food came at once. The food was the worst I've ever ate in my life. Crab cakes cold and horrible. Cheese sticks had no cheese. Salad was rotten. Hamburger was dry. Pizza was like cardboard. How do you mess up pizza? They found a way.I just wanted to get the out of there. It took 20 minutes for anyone to greet us.
