We have been to this location of the Varsity Club many times. It was always very good. The last time that we were there it was a bit disappointing. We stopped in about noon. We usually sit on the patio. We went to a table that the people had just left. The chairs were covered in some kind of black... More

A local place I've never been particularly impressed with the karaoke and trivia nights. Saw Josh Plummer on the patio and I will go anytime they have him play. Great service on the patio. Only had appetizer but the quality was a XXL

The Varsity Club's food is always consistent. Waitresses are always friendly. Seems to be the local gathering place, even for families.

The food is great, that's why we keep on going back ! The buffalo chicken wrap, boneless wings, burgers, and mozzarella sticks are all the reason for our return! The food is great and it's a great night/outside/inside place to sit and eat. Nevertheless,,,, The service however is very slow and usually takes forever, and prices are not the fairest... More

I loved that this sports bar had a quieter area where we ate. The bar area was busy and fun, but I prefer the quieter areas and this was great. Wonderful server, came to our table to check on us multiple times and she was just great. Huge menu and since it was our first time there I had to... More

This is a conveniently located sports bar that offers a large menu of food options. Don't think you can have to many additional TV's in the place and the staff is real good about getting your team in one of them. The food is good and the staff is nice. There is also outdoor seating where dogs are allowed, which... More

How is it possible to screw up a "Burger and Fries order"? The idiots at the Varsity Club have found a way. I called in a take out order for a salad and a burger and fries and when I got home....No Fries" In the partitioned container there was a big empty space where the fries should be! After calling...
