In my quest to always look for cool places to hang out and watch any sporting event, I have created a focused, albeit limited list of my favorite Sports Bars in the area in no particular order. So when looking to hang out with friends, family and fans, check these places out-

LOCAL:

Amherst Pizza and Ale House:

55 Crosspoint Parkway
Amherst NY 14068
www.amherstpizzaandalehouse.com

Food and beer are just as important as the game and this place delivers on both. Check out Mama Mia Pizza Beer pizza, yes, it tastes like pizza. The best of both worlds in a bottle!


Duff’s (Orchard Park):

3090 Orchard Park Road
Orchard Park, NY
www.duffsfamouswings.ca
Come for the wings stay for the game. Plenty of televisions and their Death or Armageddon sauces are hotter than any action on the tube.


Santora’s Pizza Pub and Grill:

1402 Millersport Hwy
Williamsville, NY.
santoras.com
Near UB, it’s a great place to catch all the college sporting action.


Cobblestone:

130 South Park Avenue
Buffalo, NY
www.cobblestonebar.com
If the Sabres are home Cobblestone is the place to be. Feel the vibe on game day and you will agree.


Buffalo’s Best Grill:

3700 Southwestern Blvd.
Orchard Park, NY
www.buffalosbestgrill.com
A mile from The Ralph this is the place to tailgate before, during and after the game.


Bada Bing:

115 West Chippewa St.
Buffalo, NY
www.badabingbuffalo.com
Try the Bing ‘Sangwich’ and check out the Jumbo Tron of Televisions!


The Warehouse:

4360 Mile Strip Rd
Blasdell, NY
facebook.com/pages/The-WareHouse-Food-Drinks-Games
Awesome place to play games and watch them.


CHAINS:

Jack Astor’s:

2000 Walden Avenue
Buffalo, NY
www.jackastors.com
Televisions everywhere, including one of the biggest right behind the bar.


Buffalo Wild Wings:

3540 McKinley Parkway - Hamburg, NY
1620 Niagara Falls Blvd - Tonawanda, NY
1594 Military Rd. - Niagara Falls, NY
www.buffalowildwings.com
Watch the games and challenge others with their Trivia Challenge set up. I have lost many a round betting on useless knowledge.


Dave and Buster’s:

4545 Transit Rd.
Williamsville, NY
www.daveandbusters.com
It has an odds board and a stat screen that wraps around the bar. Plus, if your team loses you can take your frustrations out on one of the interactive games.


T.G.I.F:

3701 McKinley Blvd, Blasdell, NY
1746 Walden Ave, Cheektowaga, NY
601 Main Street, Buffalo, NY
6850 Main Street, Williamsville, NY

Lots of locations, so you are sure to find fans in your area.
