What had been a neighborhood bar for 70-plus years has been spruced up and revitalized into a swanky new sports bar and grill. The large space — there is a dining room in the back with three gigantic flat-screen TVs and a nice-sized bar up front with high-top tables and more TV’s — opened earlier this year, and has been working hard on changing its image from a gritty drinking hole to a welcoming, affordable restaurant.
What’s nice about the space is that the bar and restaurant are truly separate, allowing for private parties in the back or family dining without the noise or din of the bar (or the sports!). There is also an outdoor patio. Expect burgers, sandwiches and salads, along with wings in your choice of mild, medium or “Holy Mary Mother of God.”
