    This place is deceptive large, as it feels cozy and casual, but is a wide space with two floors. Solid beer, great for a larger gathering of people where you still want to hear your conversations.

    It's a huge space, and there are a ton of games to play. However, getting a game on to watch can be an exerxise in futility with so many groups seemingly in attendance on a regular basis.

    Great bar for drinks, games, and fun! Don't come if you're looking to dance. Great to meet people and socialize. Unlike anywhere else I have been too. Really cool!

    Go downstairs and play ping pong and enjoy drinks right there! Also the Tvs are much better viewing angles while you have fun down stairs.

    Good beer and pretzels, fun, loud, atmosphere. All the food (except pretzels) is spicy, so if you like that, you're in luck.

    Great venue of you're looking for drunken debauchery. Dance floor, shuffle board, basketball game and more for your entertainment. Upstairs is more low key.

    Lots of bar games, and much more spacious than it looks from the outside. But why aren’t all the bars open when it’s crowded?

    Very cool! Chill upstairs with board games, and play like you're a kid downstairs in the arcade!

    Get there early to find parking and to get drinks before the crowds come making it nearly impossible to move.

    Great happy hour. It's a huge place, so wander around a bit. Lots of games and a pretty solid beer selection. Food is ok, nothing special.

    Grossest hot wings I have ever had. It's like they boiled them instead of getting them.

    Waitresses are EXTREMELY rude but the bartenders truly earn their tips. Probably won't go back there again. I can't believe how rude the waitresses were to my friends and I. Never again.
