Coles is one of my favorite bars anywhere. Bar service is great, prices are reasonable -- good quality and large portions. The only drawback of the menu -- it's nearly impossible to settle on just one thing -- how can you pick between classic wings, beef on weck, and the juiciest burgers in Buffalo? It's a great spot for all sorts of people -- good for families, dates, friends, whatever. It's also a good place for sports -- it is standing room only at the bar during most games, and while it can get a little crowded, it's a fun crowd of enthusiastic fans. Coles also does events in their private room, good for anniversaries or other celebrations. The decor is one-of-a-kind, with lots of local and sports memoribilia -- this is the look that so many chain places like TGIFs attempt to imitate, but Coles is the real thing.
Pros: excellent food/value, great bartenders, fun atmosphere
Cons: can be noisy, parking can be hard
