Once at the table, we were given quick instructions on how to operate the television feeds at the personal TV at our table. There were about seven feeds available for you to choose your favorite game. Baseball was the main event of the evening. We could have just as easily watched the main attraction on the hi-def, 16-inch big screen, which offered an extremely clear picture.
Our waiter arrived promptly and took our drink orders, giving us time to look at the menu. A burger sounded juicy and delicious, but the ribs that were delivered to the next table over caught my eye. Ultimately, I chose somewhat lighter fare and went with the chicken tender salad. My group mates chose an ESPN burger and a chicken breast sandwich.
We enjoyed our beers, soft drinks, and the game as we waited for our food. In what seemed like no time, our waiter returned with our dinner.
The salad was crisp, with generous chicken tender bits and avocado chunks. It came with both ranch and barbeque dressings. Trying both, I decided to go sans sauce. The chicken tenders went a long way to seasoning the salad.
The three of us spent just over $50 on dinner.
After dinner, don't forget to try out some of the games. The most popular the night we were there was the interactive horse racing game in which you get your entire body involved in the race. Others were the NASCAR Daytona race game and a hoop-shooting game.
It had great value for the food and fast and friendly service on Monday. We left satisfied with our choice.
