Yeah, I’d rate it a solid meh. It was busy when we went, we were seated near the bar, wedged into a tight space. I counted 11 tv screens visible from my seat without turning my head. I ordered a patty melt burger. The burger was cooked perfectly but the caramelized onions were not at all caramelized, they were undercooked and not sweet. It was not inedible but it could’ve been much better. I don’t care for spaces that are tight, busy, noisy and I don’t care for TVs at dinner.
KBear…was my first thought. Seems they finally opened without so much as a “psssttt”. Obviously not Westsiders…they should know the importance of making a big deal of opening to WSB editor, so it can go on front page (apologies if it did and I missed it). It is not on my radar as a place to frequent. I love patty melts if they’re made right…always liked the one at the original sports bar, Rocksport.
Well, they got considerable coverage on the WSB a couple of months ago. Seems that they’ve declared bankruptcy several times and they owe taxes big-time. So I won’t patronize them. Still, despite this and the meh food, it does have lots of TVs for watching sports. So I can see why plenty of people would want to go there.
I will agree with the solid “meh”. The space is pretty cramped and aside from the French onion soup I didn’t find their food to be anything above a casual dining experience like a Denny’s or Red Robin; however if I wanted to watch a game and enjoy some good choices of draft beer I’d probably pull up at the rail.
