Another team outing means it is time for a new review! We tried City Works this time in the KOP town center, since it is right by where we play. I am counting down the days to go back, and so it mom because she wants to try it too!
Ambiance/Atmosphere: City Works has a sports bar like atmosphere with a large bar, lots of tvs but also plenty of tables. They also have great outdoor seating with a fire place. It was busy for a Wednesday and with a big group, we had a decent wait. But the staff with so friendly and patient and all around awesome!
Drinks/Cocktails: A sports bar with a great tap selection-90 options! But they also have cocktails and wines you can select as well. With this many options, of course I had a hard selecting what to order. But I thought I would try Rubaeus, sour from Founders Crewing Company. It gets a 10/10. It was a refreshing, tart raspberry sour. Not sweet, but it went down smooth like juice LOL. Andy order the Ace Pineapple Cider, another great selection that we have before. Ace cider flavors are always delicious and refreshing. See their current draft list here or click here for their cocktail and wine selection!
Menu: As expected, another menu line up with great choices that made the decision difficult. They have great bar food options as well as some entrees. I looked at the menu all day long, but it still wasn’t an easy decision. But let me tell you, I would make my selection again and again. We have buffalo chicken dip to share for the table (10/10). It was the perfect creaminess, spiciness and a large portion! Andy order the Nashville hot chicken wrap (10/10). Again, great all around taste.
I ordered the filet mignon sliders. I have to give them a 12/10 because they were amazing! I honestly would order them every time and not listen to my own advice of trying something new. They were cooked perfectly as ordered, medium-rare. They were topped with caramelized onions and a horseradish cream sauce on a pretzel roll to complete the perfect balance of savory flavors that hit the mouthwatering, eyes rolling back, “omg this is soo good” spot of your stomach. My mouth is watering as I write and I need to plan my next trip back LOL. Other items ordered around the table that would also be recommend included the chicken tinga tacos and rigatoni.

Tips/Recommendations: We went on a Wednesday evening around 7:30/8pm. It was busy and we had almost a 45 minutes wait. So I would definitely recommend trying to make a reservation or call ahead, especially if you have a bigger party. If you have a hard time deciding, I would recommend looking at the draft menu before you go as well. This will help to narrow down your choices from their extensive list! If you love steak, I 100% recommend the filet mignon sliders. Honestly, even if you’re not a steak person, I still recommend because they are that delicious! And as always, try something new every time you go!
