The bar is pretty good IF you sit in the bar. Otherwise it's a long walk between drinks. Service is lacking to marginal even sitting at the bar. Sitting in the main area has netted me cold meals and slow service. And those were the good nights. The quality and flavor of the food has declined over the last year or so. Last time I went in I had the jalapeno poppers and the center was still frozen. I would have told the waitress but at the rate she was coming around I decided the center would thaw and the exterior would freeze before she got back to me. I could go on and on but bottom line is just don't go there expecting a great experience and you won't be disappointed.
We went back here after not dining there for a few months. The gameroom is now closed, the TVs at the booths are in serious need of repair (the 'UP' channel on ours didn't work, so we had to cycle through about a hundred channels when we went past the one we wanted), and the kitchen appears to have decided to set a slower than snail's pace for making orders. On a not-at-all-busy early Saturday evening (we got there at 5), it took 45 minutes to get our food after we ordered, and we didn't order anything complicated. Our server was very nice and attentive, but the overall service sucked. I ordered the cheese steak, and noticed that the meat/veggie inside the bun is significantly smaller than what I used to get, as in almost half the size.
DON'T GO HERE. TELL YOUR FRIENDS NOT TO GO HERE. It's not worth it anymore. If I could give it less than a 1/2 a star I would.
Food is just O.K. Service is also just O.K. They do have an arcade which can be fun. Ambiance is bad to quite bad. Very Dark, Very smokey, tacky decor.
Service sucks, Lots of food. Food is good. Slow service. Can't move chairs around. Can't move tables. In a word sucks and expensive.
It's a sports bar. Not much more to say. The personal TV's are a good touch, so that everyone can watch what they'd like. The food is typical sports bar food. The waiting staff was nice.
The food isn't exactly up to par, but somewhere fun to go w/ friends to watch a game or play a few video games w/o screaming kids running around!
I love autgaph's onion rings. I crave them. Problem is that I can't eat there with my one year old daughter without her sucking down a pack of ciggaretes in side smoke. Having a non-smoking section that simply wraps around the smoking section with no walls to seperate it or anything doesn't make it a non-smoking section. If I can't eat there I can't give it the review it deserves. If this place was smart it would follow suit with other resturaunt and go smoke-free. At least during family eating hours.
Just to support others opinions, it is an interesting place to get a bite to eat and drink a little. The wings are great and the moonshine is killer hot.
Not a place to go late as it is pretty dead from 11 pm on. You're better off going to a "real" bar if you want to mingle and/or get wasted.
I've heard second hand they have a $1 draw Happy Hour until 6pm.
Autographs was a pretty fun place. We had to wait for a while for a table because the Northern Iowa basketball game was on and everyone wanted to stay and watch it. We played a bunch of video games while we waited. We also played pool and I was introduced to a game called Silverstrike Bowling which apparently there are leagues for. When we got our table we all ordered wings and a side of moonshine sauce (very hot, but you should try it). The wings were great, and our waiter wanted to hang out after he got off work.
It's a good kid-friendly restaurant. With all the tv's around you can see pretty much any game or show whichever way you are looking. If you get a booth the kids can watch the cartoon channel while you keep your eye on the game. They don't have a wide range of items on their menu, but what they do have is really good. Their cheesesteaks are my personal favorite, with a side of criss cut fries and ranch dip. They don't really have a non-smoking section, though, which sucks, although they do have a patio for warmer weather.
The game room is nice, lots of games, and a nice variety of them as well, and pretty wide open. The prizes take a lot fewer tickets to win than at places like Chuck E Cheese's, which is good. There is only ever one employee working in that room, so expect to wait for him if it's busy. You buy a "credit" card with points on it to play the games, a lot easier than fumbling with tokens. If you use a debit card to buy up points for your card, the employee has to go into the main restaurant room to actually make the charge on it, which is rather annoying.
Overall, a decent place to go.
Autographs-First off, light up the sign so I can find it. I'm guessing they want more than just the regulars. This place is pretty sweet though; I was there at a down time. The liquor is displayed nicely so you don't look like a jackass trying to order something. The bar area is nice but I think they could make the "bench tabletops" a little big bigger. There is a VIP room but I don't think you have to be very important to be a part of it.
There are flat panels everywhere. You can watch any game you want there intimately with your buddies. I say intimately cause you are close to the screen. The food is decent. The wings are ridiculously good. Done up just right and with the Moonshine Sauce on the side. Make sure it's on the side cause it is hot as hell and if you get it on your face or lips - It will burn for a couple hours. My own fault there. There is a game room so it is kid friendly. You and your wife bring the kids out, send them to the game room while you get hammered watching the game. Perfect. A big drawback is the 1 pool table, 1 Golden Tee and couple of Fruit Bonus. All in the same area. All in all it's a good place to catch the game in a friendly atmosphere.
Check the pictures, they tell the story in short form.
Autograph's Extreme is a sports bar/arcade with some good food, good drinks, and good specials. If you like to play games, they have a huge video game room (but only 1 pool table). If you'd like to catch a game on TV, this is a great place to be. They have over 20 screens with flat panels in every booth. The wait staff is always happy to change channels on the projectors as well.
Try their wings... and while you're at it, ask for a side of their Moonshine sauce (be sure it's on the side). After dipping a couple times your mouth will burn so bad. Be careful not to touch the moonshine sauce to your lips!
Despite all the cool stuff at Autographs, the service is not always up to par. Sometimes it's great, sometimes it's really bad/slow.
