Service: Thursday nights are the busiest nights here so expect a wait.  It took about 20 minutes for me to get a drink in hand. That may have been because the first beer I was brought was the wrong one. My brother also thought his was wrong, but in hindsight, it probably was right; it just wasn't what he expected.  After that, our waitress was back around the time we all needed another drink.  Later on, another person in our party said that her drink was not the right one.  She had been drinking the same beer all night, so it makes sense that she could tell if it was different.  Instead of just bringing another one, our waitress made sure to say that we were wrong and she was right.  I'm pretty sure she was annoyed with us, but at this point, the feeling was mutual.  For better service, I would go on a less busy night and sit at the bar so you can see what they are pouring.

Atmosphere: Bar is about the same size as the restaurant area which means plenty of space.  There's also a large patio area overlooking fountain and movie theater area.  This bar specializes in sports as it has over 30 t.v.'s ranging in size. On Thursday nights, there is a d.j. who isn't particularly good but it is very loud. As in I'm yelling at you like I'm in a club loud. People seem to like it as it does get crowded on these nights.  Sporting events like UFC or football are also a big deal here and if you don't mind possibly having to stand, it can be a good time.

Value:  $3 drafts after 10 are a good deal mainly because of the good beer selection.  You can also get a larger glass ( I think 23 oz?) for $5.50.  You may have to specifically ask for the pint if you want the $3 price but both are good deal.  I don't consider BWW as a place to order wells, wine, or margaritas but $3 is a good price.  I'm not sure if this location still has the daily specials from their facebook page; these were posted last year and I didn't notice any advertised in the restaurant.  I'll have to check that out.  I don't think the wing specials are all that great because 1) the wings aren't that special and 2) you can get them cheaper somewhere else. See Bubba Jacks wing deals.

Entertainment: Ton's of t.v.'s showing every local sport, along with some displaying trivia games and poker.  They have karaoke on Wednesday, and d.j. on Thursday.  UFC fights are shown here but it gets very packed and there is a $5 cover charge at the door.  If you don't mind looking cheap, you can watch it on the outside patio screens.  Another great form of entertainment here is the Blazin' Wing challenge.  Convince one of your friends or yourself to eat a dozen of the blazing wings under six minutes and if successful, the reward is a t-shirt and photo on wall.  I've seen it done. It's pretty awesome.
