This place was absolutely horrible. When we were sat, we told the waiter that we were in a rush. Unfortunately, that message was clearly not relayed to the kitchen because it took almost an hour for our burgers and fries to be finished. If they were busy, we would have understood, but the restaurant was not crowded at all, and people who sat down after us with much more complicated orders were fed long before we were. Of course, the ambience and class of being sung to by strange city dwellers walking by as we sat near the open doors made the wait much more enjoyable (That sentence was serious sarcasm if you couldn't tell, and I'm not exaggerating). Once the food finally got there, it was cold and appeared dry and dreary. Have you ever wanted to put something out of its misery? That's exactly how I felt looking at my meal. Despite trying not to judge a book by its cover, the appearance of our meals proved to be very foreshadowing of how they would taste: bland, depressed, and overcooked.

Their Sunday brunch is to die for. Make sure you go very hungry.

Can definitely be a fun place to go with friends. Large bar with vast amount of beers of tap. It has a social atmosphere with mostly people in their 20's going to drink and dance. Food is surprisingly tasty. Bartenders were not very knowledgeable of the their own drink menu, though. I prefer the Burlington location.

Claims to be a sports bar. But if you go to watch one of the biggest soccer games US has ever played in, dont expect them to play the sound from the game until trivia night finishes. And dont bother asking the manager (some guy who picks up dishes in a tie). He doesnt seem to like soccer and gives an attitude when you ask if they could play the sound from the game inbetween trivia questions. Bottom line... ill go somewhere else next time i want to go out to watch a game of any sport. The manager doesnt realize I also go out for american football and basketball games. If they wanted my return business, they would have at least made an effort. Instead they provided a extremely dull and boring atmosphere for the 50 + people that went there to watch. Ill spend my money elsewhere next time!

Good place to dance/drink. However, during summertime. Their AC is not up to par. Gets extremely hot.

Heard this place was good - got out of my cab with a cup of iced green tea and bounced and manager refused to let me in because they thought it was alcohol. The place was not busy at the time at all and I said I had multiple friends meeting me and tried to prove it was just tea (yes I had drinks prior to coming there) but they would not let me in no matter what. Rude douche bag doorman and maybe new management? Been here many many times over the last few years wasted and never had a problem. Thumbs down!!!! Go somewhere else.
