Coach’s is your typical sports bar. There’s a bar when you walk in, multiple pool tables, dart boards, and dozens of TV’s. There’s also two pretty large dining rooms where they serve not your typical pub food.

My girlfriend and I stopped in on a Saturday night for dinner. We were a little worried because the NCAA tournament was on, but surprisingly, the place wasn’t crowded. We showed ourselves to a table in the first dining room and a server was right behind us to get drinks.

The menu had your typical pub fare plus entrees and unique pizza combinations including calzones. My date ordered the chicken strip and fries basket plus a side salad. She liked the crispy fries and said her chicken strips were good. I grabbed a bite of one and it all tasted like someone opened a bag and dumped them in the deep fryer. Doesn’t matter what I think, she enjoyed her dinner and that’s what really coungts.

I ordered the Bourbon Chicken Dinner. Two boneless chicken breasts come covered in a Bourbon BBQ glaze with fries, a salad, and a cheese breadstick. The BBQ was sweet and added a nice touch to chicken. THe fries were the same as my dates. The portion was a pretty good size. I didn’t leave stuff, but I didn’t leave feeling cheated either. The side salad was your typical greens with croutons, cucumber, and tomatos. I got the Italian dressing which was a little thicker than usual, but still good.

The bill with three drinks was about $30. There’s a lot on this menu I really wanted to try. I’ve heard the pizzas were good, the burgers looked good and there were a few more dinners that looked appetizing. Coach’s really tries to be more than just another sports bar and with this menu, they are succeeding at doing so.

We just went here last night and had a pretty good experience as well. I got their country style spare ribs dinner. It was listed on a special insert so it might have been a limited-time thing…the ribs brought back great memories of when I was young and an older babysitter would make them. Ryan got the wings and fries and was also pretty pleased. The service was a little off, but it was karaoke night and a couple teams from a softball tournament showed up shortly after we got there. I was happy with the prices and the wide variety on the menu. I also liked the range of activities they offer. I was able to play trivia, listen to karaoke and watch the Olympics which I thought was cool. They also have a sand volleyball court that was in use the whole time we were there! Overall it’s another good option for a decent meal and a couple drinks, not too far from home.
