Great pub for drinks before any event at the Key Bank Centre. Went there before 2 concerts recently and the service is fast and nice people. The wings are yummy and the beers are cold! Done!!! I'll be back. $6 for 6 mini beers in a bucket of ice. 🍻Less than a 10 minute walk to the venue.

Ate here before Blackhawks game in February 2017. Place was packed and atmosphere was good. Wings were delicious. The buckets of rolling rock are a good deal. Make a reservation on game day. God spot to eat before sabres game for sure.

This place was recommended to me by some Washington Capitals players years ago. Great wings, fast service and always packed before the game. If you have the opportunity to go there, don't miss the chance

We were on our way to Disney on Ice. Stopped for a bite. The bartender was alone but was efficient enough to tend the bar and not keep us waiting. Food was very good.

Go for the food, but stay for the friendly service and fun atmosphere. We had the wings and beef on weck, too must tries. The beer is cold, the wings are hot and the decor is a classic bar.

The nasty Old Lady bartender didn't even know how to make a Bloody Mary. I'm sure she has been there for ages. She was nice to the regulars, which we will never be. Would not step foot in there again. And as for the best wings in Buffalo as she said, they were fair at best. Sorry we have been... More

Been going here for years before ball games, hockey games and any event in Buffalo. Great wings, buckets of rolling rock and cold draught. Paul behind the bar is top notch.

Probably the best wings I've ever had, the size, the heat, the taste and deep fried to perfection, interesting atmosphere before a Sabres game as you are elbow to elbow with others, good cold beer and awesome wings
