Marv Says: Not your average sports bar, The Huddle sets the bar for the number of TV screens in one room. Also, the music playing was incredibly good 80’s fare. This warm spring evening saw few people there to enjoy a very workman like interior and lots and lots of sports. I stuck to Cutthroat and Tequila and Redbull to round out the night.

Marv Says: Maggies is a very large sports bar nestled in a strip mall in Holladay. The decor is strictly bro-bar/sports bar. A pedestrian selection of libations will not challenge anyone’s creativity, but they do mix their cocktails well. The service was above average, and there are a wealth of tables. A very good location for groups of 6-10 people to visit with each other. Another Karaoke night met us with some horrific singing. I had a couple of SoCo limes and a Cutthroat with Makers.

After a major remodeling, Batter’s Up is your bog standard sports bar. Lots of flavoured liquors are available for mixed drinks and a few microbrews on tap. If you need to find an out of the way spot to watch a Jazz Game, this is your place. They appear to have a DJ at some times, but it was just abuzz with music and people enjoying their drinks. I had a Beam and Coke.
This is a nice little sports bar, nothing to strange, nothing too odd. The bar is fairly segmented into three different areas, the game room with the pool tables, the bar area with a smattering of seating beyond the bar stools and finally the TV arena. Surrounding the TV arena you will find the standard fair of a lot of TV’s showing a lot of different sports. While this place was nice, I wouldn’t say it really sets itself apart from most of the other sports bars in the city. My recommendation is if you are looking for someplace to catch a game and you live in the area, this place will do great. If you’re traveling to your sports bar, there seem to be other options I’d put in front of this.

Legends is your typical restaurant by day and hot spot by night. We found the atmosphere to be very friendly with outstanding service. We spent a great deal of time chatting with the owner discussing all things Legends. It has a decent selection of hard alcohol along with some good beers on tap. The drink specials were handy as a $5 Guiness is always a good time. I enjoyed a couple of pints of the Good Irish Black Stuff as well as a Jameson and Redbull. Later I had a shot of Wild Turkey to wash away the experience of the next bar on the list.
Legends was the one bar of the evening that I couldn’t place, it was in a familiar neighborhood but the name just didn’t bring up the image of anything at all. I actually told the driver to go the whole way around the block so we could figure out where it actually was. Well, it’s a good thing we found it 100 mg viagra pfizer. Right next door to Brewvies this place has a good location, and it doesn’t hurt that the bar is pretty great as well. Inside this is appears to be your standard upscale sports bar, lots of large TV’s tuned to various channels, lots of tables and lots of waitresses that are easy on the eyes. With our waitress reporting us to the owner, it seems like she gave us some extra attention hoping for a better review. Sadly, this technique didn’t work, because the review would have been just as good without her, but it was fun to talk with a bar owner and find out some more information about the bar’s backstory. The drinks here were good and fast, but we were there on a very slow night, but the real winner here is the food; For our Canadian friends they have some properly made poutine and their fried pickles are definitely not to be missed. In general this place is awesome to visit, sit, relax and eat.

While not actually on our list, Fiddler’s Elbow made the cut for dinner in order to back fill the spot that Karamba had twice. A busy and popular place for dinner or Brunch, Fiddler’s Elbow is a good choice for a decent meal. Crowded and loud, it still maintains a certain feel about the place. Well worth visiting. A Rooster’s Chocolate Stout began the night for me here.
I’ve been to the Fiddler’s Elbow a number of times in the past and I don’t believe I’ve ever been disappointed. This place is not a bar it is a full on restaurant but due to the Karamba mix-up on the list we can view this as a happy accident. For a Saturday evening and without reservations it took about forty minutes for a table so if you are heading out on a busy night, you may want to call ahead to get your name on the list. The food was excellent all around and drinks were refilled quickly. They also have a good selection of beers from local breweries including my favorites from Bohemian and some good options from Roosters up in Ogden. If I had to classify this place as anything, I would categorize it as a sports bar with very good food. If you have not been here yet, you’re not doing yourself any favors.
