With 2 or 3 dozen big screens, Kite's is a great place to meet friends for drinks and food and for watching [multiple] sporting events simultaneously. Prices are reasonable and service is good. Downside is that bathrooms need a serious cleaning and makeover.

I'm clearly not a student, but I have one here in town which means I have money - something most students are short on. Also means I'm much more likely to tip. Service simply awful here. So many other choices, choose one.

Came with a large group (12+) and received great service. Our food came out super fast and was terrific.

We love college towns and this place came highly recommended by a former KSU golf coach. Nothing disappointed. Good cocktails (Pepsi products were a plus) and excellent burgers. Service was top notch too.

I'm from Manhattan and I almost always go to Kites for lunch and a beer. Today, they had wings for 50 cents. I ordered wings - pretty good. Great price/value. Also had a couple bud lights - cold. Service was very slow but it is a holiday. Go to kites. Drink beer. Be careful not to get a DUI. COPS... More

I've been to Kite's several times since starting grad school at KSU and have been always disappointed in the unclean and unfriendly bar. We kept coming back for the Karaoke but now we have learned about the vulgar transphobia of the owner and employees at this filthy establishment. Don't spend your money on dirty beer taps, plastic cups (tacky!), and... More

TV's everywhere and empty on a Saturday. I get that school is out, but ghost town. Service was perfunctory, nothing better. Burgers were good. Will try something else next time.

We ordered their special wings and fish tacos.. I will say the wings were not coated properly in sauce.. and my husband complained about his fish tacos.. A good place to hangout with friends.. But I have been to better bars other than this.. This was not impressive.

Meet you friends at Kite's is a great way to put it. It can cater to the lunch crowd, the nightlife crowd AND the sports enthusiast.
