We went last night.....the service was fine, the food was just okay but the prices were very high! We started with the pickle chips and they were less than average. Slices were way too big and the batter didn't have any taste. Our kids got the chicken tenders off the Kid's menu and they were happy with that. I got the veggie burger with a slice of cheese, one slice of tomato and a piece of lettuce ($8.50!) and a side salad. The burger had no taste so I dipped it in my balsamic dressing and that helped. My husband got the chili and it was quite good - best thing we had. For the price, I don't think we will be going back. They may want to add something different to the appetizer menu as it's mostly fried items (chips, pickles, etc.) It's just like every other 'neighborhood' bar that has opened (i.e. Tribeca) - the inside looks great, lots of TV screens, but the food really doesn't live up to the hype. Too bad as it's only 5 minutes from our house and we like to eat out on Sunday's especially during football season.

You know -- I think I'll open a restaurant. I can only cook one dish really well, so I think I'll just call my restaurant Baked Spaghetti. I'll add a spectacular salad, some home-baked bread, and some kind of frou-frou cheesecake factory dessert, and I'll be all set. Great food, fresh ingredients supplied by local farmers, but ONE menu item that's done really really well. Anyone want to partner?

Do it as a food truck and you have a winner Most of the Food trucks only have like 3 or 4 items on their menu, and what they have are usually very good.

Complaining about an $8.50 burger in a restaurant....with a side....really? Go order a 1/3lb burger and a side salad at McDonalds - what does it cost, $5? How cheap do you want them to price their food? Sorry had to say something.

We went the other night and were happy...the cheesesteak was good, obviously not a true cheesesteak but absolutely on the high end of what we've found around here. Overall the food was better than one would expect from a typical tavern, we'll be going back. Only constructive criticism I would provide is that the fries were good but tend to contain a lot of small fry "bits" versus regular fries. Maybe we just got the bottom of the bowl but lots of scraps and fewer actual fries. Nonetheless, food was good, I know where I'll get my whiz fix from here on out.

Went today to finally check this place out. I had the Mac & Cheese, HUGE portion. It was really good! BF had the cheesesteak and he enjoyed it. We have no complaints, we will go there again. Looks like a great place to watch football
