After our yummy pancake breakfast, hubby and I headed out to run errands and stopped at Duckworth’s Grill and Taphouse for a quick bite to eat.
When I think Duckworth’s, I think of 2 things:
- philly cheese steaks
- great beer selection
So hubby and I indulged in both.
A pale ale and IPA sampler, selected by our waiter because he was much more knowledgeable of the beers than I was.
I really liked the Belgian…I think it was Magma-something.
I think hubby was just really happy to be in one location with so many TVs! I think I counted 15, but there may have been more?
Hubby and I split the mozzarella caprese salad for an appetizer.
And then we split a 7″ philly cheese steak with provolone, lettuce, and tomatoes.
Plus hand cut fries!
Hubby and I really enjoyed lunch – the eats and the atmosphere.
I used to hate going to sports-bar type places with hubby but now that they’re non-smoking, I really enjoy it. It’s kind of nice to get out and relax and watch a couple (or 15) games on TV.
Do you like sports bars? Why or why not?

oooh I must say that caprese salad looks particularly wonderful!
Yes I like sports bars. It is nice to get out the house and be around others rather than sitting on the couch watching games. I’m not sure about liking the food choices because most only offer game day food like burgers and wings. I don’t think I’ve ever been to sports bar where a caprese salad was served. Looks tasty!
I hear ya on the food choices! Definitely most places are just frozen crap-food. This one seemed to be really fresh. I guess it’s sort of a compromise type place for me and hubby. Fresh eats for me and games-galore for him! 🙂
I love sports bars, though I usually have difficulty finding something good to eat- the atmosphere is just fun!
I am definitely more tolerable of the sports bars atmosphere now that they are nonsmoking too! I probably wouldn’t choose to go but once I am there it’s fun and tasty.
I love sports bars just because the atmosphere is so laid back…and because of all the naughty food 😉
Looking at the fries makes me want some! I haven’t had them for so long.
I don’t like sports bars. I was at my first one this past Friday and there were so many people drinking and smoking, yelling at the television screens.
The smoking was a big downer for me, but they recently changed laws so smoking in restaurants is no longer permitted. Now I just have the people yelling and loud TVs. lol
I love sports bars, but I think that is because I love trying new beers and I love sports. 🙂
Two very good reasons to go! 🙂 I am learning to like both more myself.
I do like sports bars, esp. when there’s a great Phillies game on. Now, that presentation on the beers is fab – however, Diana – you guys need to come to Philly for a REAL Philly Cheesesteak and NOT from Pats or Genos either. Around where I live, I’ve been “nicely” told that lettuce and tomato make it a “hoagie” and no longer a cheese steak. Of course, the look I got from them from asking said question would make a grown man wither.
Lys! I would love that! I should visit some time so we can make that happen. I’ve only ever had 1 REAL Philly cheese steak (in Philly).
