Kite's is a great place to gather with friends for burgers and beers. Has the college vibe, lots of big screen TVs. It is a college bar, people... not fine dining... get over yourselves!! Prices are reasonable, service is good (but slow when crowded), and...More

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'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...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.
