[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.)
Pros: Many convenient screens, good for moochers.
Cons: No seats
