From the beginning, the owner of this restaurant was rude and seemed to not want our business. She sat our party of 7 at a 4 person barstool table (did I mention I am nearly 6 months pregnant?) meanwhile two additional tables of that height were open and several other tables had been combined for other groups, but she told us we could not do the same because there were people waiting on those tables. Meanwhile, when we called to make a reservation, we were told reservations were not accepted on Wednesdays and it was first come first serve. The table was eventually taken, but not for another 10-20 minutes and certainly not for someone who had been waiting for it from the time we arrived. On to the food and service....the food is bar food. However, the celery that came with my BBQ wings was mushy in the middle. Celery should not be soft - disgusting. The service was pretty decent and the waitress without complaint agreed to split our bill (7 people but two couples, so only 5 checks). When it came time to pay though, the same owner/manager who was so rude about seating came over and yelled at us (literally raised her voice and spoke in a demeaning manner) for requesting a split check. She claimed we were taking advantage of a new waitress (not sure why we should know she is new nor how we were taking advantage of her since she did not say a darn thing about splitting the check being a problem). In any case, after being so rude, she came back and still with attitude told us not to take it out on the waitress with a bad tip. Meanwhile, I watched the owner go collect 5 separate credit cards from a table of 5 people with a smile and talking genially with the table. Hmm, separate bills and credit cards there seemed okay. Our 4 credit cards and cash was enough to send her into a state of madness. Bottom line....there are better sports bars around if that's what you want. If you wanted dinner and trivia on Wednesday evening, consider switching to Tuesdays and going to Bollywood Masala - same trivia competition and prizes, but with a friendly and personable owner/manager that appreciates your business and is respectful of patrons.
Food is good, but for a quasi sports bar....................... draft beer choices are very limited. I don't know about the post on another site indicating that the chef/cook has left this restaurant, but the Pizza remains the best that we have found in Southern Maryland, by far. Just had some take-out pizza, and it certainly hasn't gone downhill. Now, if you would get some decent beer, we'd visit weekly. Unfortunately, the beer selection on tap is lacking. Just get at least one decent draft beer to go with our pizza, and we'll become regulars. I could name many restaurants in the area that have lesser food than you do, but far better hops on tap. Otherwise, it will be occasional take-out to enjoy at home with some good brews.
Haapy hour specials that were very generous are not offered as frequently as before. Without those there isn't an overwhelming reason to come here. Food is OK. Service is spotty.
