Steve and Lenny's Sports bar is the worst place to watch games. They are understaffed, the service is poor, the food is terrible, and the owner is arrogant and doesn't know a thing about running a restaurant or Sports Bar. This would be the last place that I would spend my hard earned money to watch a game!
