Obnoxious sports bar – If you dream of spending your entire afternoon drinking a lot of cheap beer and yelling at a television while surrounded by several like-minded individuals, this place must seem like heaven. If you want to have a good meal and a few drinks with decent service in a pub atmosphere, there are plenty far better options in the area than this one.
Great sports bar and night time entertainment – Not just a place to grab a beer and watch the game -
I've seen some great comedy shows here- and I've brought a date for dinner as well. It's a good local place
More then just a sports bar – I came here not knowing what to expect. Had heard a few things about this place from friends, and being new to the neighborhood was eager to check it out. While everyone stressed the sports bar aspect of the place to me (and it is a great spot for a game, looks like they have 100 tv's inside) I was really pleased with the dinner I had. I ordered the crab cake to start and was amazed at how fresh it tasted. It was a great size for an app. as well. My entree was a T-bone steak while my friend got the boneless half chicken. Both dishes were HUGE and came out looking great. My steak was cooked perfectly medium rare while my friends chiken was slightly crunchy on the outside but juicy on the inside. A great dining experience overall and it doesn't hurt that they have 40 beers on tap, including arrogant bastard ( a fav for my west coast roots). Make sure to check this place out for quality food and damn good beer.
Wow! – Always on the road traveling and trying to find the "local spot". My concierge at the Holiday Inn Express recomeded this place. I was a little weary about advice from a kid making minimum
wage at Hoiday inn but I went anyway. Great enviorenment and the food was suprisingly good.
I recomend the burger special or wings. Must check out if in the Slope also had my local team on. Go Clippers!
WORST SERVICE IN BROOKLYN! – I called ahead one Friday to see if they were able to receive the NCAA Track and Field Champs. The person I spoke to said, they were not sure but more than likely. I had some track fans in town who really wanted to see the meet. We got there about 9 p.m. after a wonderful dinner at Blue Ribbon Restaurant (TASTY FOOD! GREAT SERVICE!) and I asked if they were able to get the meet. The waiter went to check while we sat at the bar. The bartender came up and asked if we were ordering drinks. I began to explain that we were just waiting to see if the bar could get a specific channel on their cable then we would definitely order drinks. Before I got half way through, he shook his head, wheeled around and walked away, with not one word! His service was atrocious! He was very rude. My three guests were in their and 50's and 60's and were all appalled at what passed for service at this establishment. We eventually stayed to see the end of the meet and bought drinks. I tipped him 10% but now wished I hadn't. Avoid this place at all costs!
Best place to watch sports in Brooklyn – I went here during the Yankees World Series run, and I was happier here then if I was at Yankee Stadium. There is an amazing energy. Returned for the Jets and the place was electric. Not to mention, I was pleasently suprised at how good the food was, I will definitely be back...
worst place in park slope – Terrible food, crowded, with awful service. There are much better places to go, like your local neighborhood bar. This place has turned into a hyped up, out of towners, irritating sports bar. I would never go back.
Viewing The Game Is The Thing – [UPDATE, 10/3/09] OK, I went there to watch a game as per my review below. The quality of viewing is good as descrbed. Only thing is THE PLACE IS PACKED. The crowd spills over onto the sidewalk and there is not a seat or table to be had anywhere. I got there at 3:30 for a 4pm game and nobody ever left their spot. I never saw a waitress, never got a drink. Had to stand in back of the bar stools for the entire game and contend with a constant flow of people squeezing by.
The crowd is in their 20s and 30s. They've got the physical stamina to contend with this sort of situation. But us old guys, well I left there with an aching back and badly swollen feet. A girl tried to pick me up though - flattering. But I was in no shape for it; just dreaming of bed and a meal.
[9/26/09] I checked this place out in person today for possible viewing of the NFL tomorrow (Bears/Seahawks). All important for me is the ability to sit in front of a screen and watch my game. My crappy co-op board does not allow dishes for Direct TV reception. I have a wide latitude of tolerance when it comes to the food.
So, you walk in, the bar is on the left and has a trail of screens along it's length. Down the center of the room and along the right wall are tables, all of which have their own screens. Talked to the manager, who told me if you get to a table early, they put your game on your screen. If you're standing, somewhere in the bar is EVERY NFL game.
What look to be 19-20" screens all have clear pictures. OK, that's all I need. I'll eat whatever half-assed thing they're serving if I can watch my game.
I don't yet know what the quality of the food is, but some of these reviews read like a sniffy yuppie peccadillo. [My veggie burger burned my tongue? Give me my meal free. Please! Have another latte grande with 2% milk and mocha vanilla sweetener, but no whipped cream, and wrap the cherry for the baby.]
(Subtracting 1 star for as yet unsampled food.)
chill outt – pretty chill spot. Lots of action, decent prices.
TERRIBLE Customer Service! – This was my first time visiting 200 5th and it will also be my last. I ordered the vegetable burger and took my first bite into it about 5 minutes after it arrived. The vegetable patty burst and splashed on my face and left a 2ND DEGREE BURN on my face. The burger was ridiculously hot. It tasted fine but I was given no warning about the temperature risk. At any rate, I reported the burn to my waitress (very politely), showed her the blister that was starting to form on my face as a result, and asked to have my meal comped. Her response was that it was MY FAULT because I was obviously an "irresponsible eater". What!? I have never heard of anyone responding that way. She told me she would not comp my meal because "it was not fair to the restaurant" that I eat "that way". Her manager then came over and explained to me that food is hot when it is cooked (Really?!) and that it was my fault for not taking caution when eating. She did not respond to my point that food should not cause 2nd degree burns when it is ready to be served. She refused to comp my meal or apologize for the burn and accused me of having the burn on my face before I got there. My boyfriend explained that we'd be happy to pay for the meal except for my portion and she asked us to leave and never return. What kind of customer service is that? I will gladly NEVER return and I suggest that you do not either. Also, my face hurts.
