Summary

This was originally another concept from the next-door neighbor, Hard Rock Cafe, but the two entities split soon after this prototype opened. But some of HRC’s theme-restaurant quality rubbed off. As themes go, this one is done well. Basketball fans will enjoy the videos and the arcade games in the outer lobby. The food is totally unremarkable, but it’s a great place to watch the play-offs. We like the wings your way appetizer (especially the ginger teriyaki variety),the Crown Royal maple filet for an entrée, and the towering cheesecake for a dessert.

Happy hour (featuring discount draft beer, wine, margaritas, and well drinks) is held daily from 4 p.m. 7 p.m., with additional specials on game days.

Setting and Atmosphere

A giant statue of Logoman, the official NBA figure (who seems to suffer from acromegaly), guards the entrance to the restaurant. Outside the restaurant there is a "three point court" where guests get 45 seconds to hit as many three pointers as they can (vouchers are purchased inside NBA City), as well as some interesting handprints in basketballs from some of the NBA's biggest stars (including Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal.) Inside, the building is designed to resemble an older arena, complete with an overhead track that circles the main dining floor. Booths line the walls, and each has a TV that plays videos of famous basketball players and key moments in roundball history (as well as live sporting events including the NBA, WNBA and the NFL).

House Specialties

“3 on 3” appetizer with quesadilla, chicken tenders, and wings; chicken penne; honey balsamic salmon; bone-in pork chop; chicken with artichoke bruschetta; whiskey-glazed filet mignon.
