Arooga’s calls itself a slightly above average grille house and sports bar, and I like that. Better food than most sports bars around, lots of TV’s and a fun clean environment to enjoy sport and food.

Most of the food is made in house prepared by chefs instead of factory workers as they call it. The fresh baked bread, wings, sauces, salad dressings, the house made soups all taste pretty darn good.

The TVs here, are TV-er. You can see every game from every seat in the restaurant, and they mean every game, because they have every sports package available all 365 days of the year on nearly 1000 flat screen tv's between all of their locations.

They have free wi-fi, Buzztime trivia and NTN Texas Hold 'em with over 80 menu items under $8.99, and several other items priced over $8.99 for the rich folks. So if you're looking for great food prepared and served by above-average people that prepare and serve great food, you'll find it at Arooga's.

Based out of Pennsylvania, this is the only Florida location of Arooga’s. They have a handful of locations in CT, NY, and NJ, and the Florida location makes number 20 overall.

Almost all Arooga’s Locations have over 30 beers on tap or in a bottle, but they have some pretty good cocktails also, like this Spicy Bloody Mary on the left and an Ultimate Long Isdland on the right.

There is plenty of room at the bar here also, and Arooga's has partnered with a local Craft Distillery to produce Sagoora Premium vodka. (Arooga's spelled backwards) it is distilled 4 times from grain, charcoal filtered and hand sealed.

I've never had Fried Banana Peppers before, but these beer battered tots with a Troegs Beer Troegenator Doppelbock batter with sriracha aioli were quite tasty.

Amish Pierogies were very good also, actually surprisingly good and perfect two bite size that was great for sharing.

I'm always a sucker for Truffle Tots, and these Truffle Tots at Arooga’s with white truffle oil, truffle aioli and shaved parmesan did not disappoint.

Ok, so the Ghost Face Killa wings are a challenge wing that requires you to sign a waiver as they have a dry ghost pepper rub. They were good, They were Hot, but they were not that hot. Mostly a front tongue burn, but hardly worth signing a waiver for.

The Philly Cheese Steak Boli is really damn good with shaved steak, beer caramelized onions, green peppers and mozzarella with cheddar and house marina. Boli is short for Stromboli.

BBQ Pulled Pork N Bacon Mac N Cheese was delicious, this is a huge skillet of creamy white cheddar mac n cheese piled with sustainably raised, no antibiotic ever pulled pork, Hickory Smoked Honey BBQ and topped with crispy bacon.

The Donut Grilled Cheese was happiness in your mouth with a griddle glazed donut, American Cheese, and 4 strips of applewood bacon.

The Signature Baked Potato Soup with thick chunks of baked potato and savory bacon in a creamy soup topped with mozzarella & cheddar cheeses, then baked in the oven and drizzled with sour cream was pretty exceptional as well.

The Prime Brisket Sandwich at Arooga’s was really good, but it looked much better in pictures as this was a tad bit smaller and not as fancy as it looked. The 14hr smoked Brisket was good on the multi grain bread.

Funnel Cake Fries were a great dessert to share at the table and quite delicious.

Arooga’s… A slightly above average sports bar? I was actually impressed with the quality of the food here and the flavors. The menu is huge, and there is something for everyone, and there is also a TV for everyone... I would say it's a little bit more than slightly above average for a sports bar.

If you're looking for fun and good food, you'll find that at Arooga’s. If you're looking for your boyfriend and/or girlfriend, they haven't seen him and/or her.

Arooga’s is open every day from 11 am until 2 am, The kitchen is open until midnight or later.
