Don’t leave without trying the Cheese Steak Spring Rolls. Why? Easily their most popular appetizer, the house-made spring rolls pack a traditional beef cheesesteak, American cheese, and caramelized onions into a fried and crispy exterior, with a sweet chili dipping sauce served on the side, General Manager Erik Sheetz says.

With so many great bar snacks on the appetizer list, you’re going to want to order several to fuel your team during trivia nights or on game day. Choose from wings, Bacon-Wrapped Brats, homemade mozzarella sticks, Bavarian Pretzels, Buffalo Chicken Dip, or Ultimate Taco Nachos (taco meat, black bean salsa, cheddar jack cheese, and tequila creme drizzle with a side of beer queso).

INSIDER’S TIP

Arrive early on game day during football season to snag a table to cheer on your team. Signs under each TV will tell you what’s on the schedule for the day. And don’t forget about the $6 appetizer specials and $2 drafts. “It’s a great place to be on Sundays during football season,” Sheetz says.

DON’T MISS

Restaurant-wide ‘Tappyhour’ from 4–6 p.m. Monday-Friday ($1 off draft beers, $2 off house wine, $6 apps). Be sure to stop by for some of the restaurant’s other promotions:

  • Monday – Wing Night (50 cent wings)
  • Tuesday – Taco Night ($5 tacos)
  • Wednesday – Burger Night ($5 burgers and a magician to entertain families from 6–8 p.m.)
  • Thursday – Pizza Night ($6 personal pizzas)

CHEERS

Try a beer cocktail off the Taps Tandems or Taptails sections of the menu while you’re there. Sheetz says the Peach Moon (Blue Moon, Peach Schnapps, and orange juice) and Raspberries on Ice (see recipe) are some of the most popular.

Trivia fiends also have multiple chances to test their brains—team trivia starts at 8:30 p.m. on Wednesdays. Once a month, there’s also a themed Saturday night trivia. Past versions have included Disney, “Harry Potter”, “Game of Thrones,” and “Friends.” Gift cards are up for grabs on trivia nights for the winning teams. Sheetz recommends following their Facebook page for specific details on trivia nights and calling ahead for reservations for your team.
