This family-owned and operated "Cheers of Uptown" watering hole has all it needs to fit the sports bar bill -- big-screen TVs everywhere the eye can see (even on the covered patio!), two pool tables as well as mahogany and brass appointments. The latter gives it a classier feel befitting the location. That extends to the menu. The house specials include the teriyaki steak, pasta with garlic chicken or shrimp and chicken-fried steak. For those in need for a more "authentic" sports bar grub there are chicken wings. The burgers, like the Italian, come big, sloppy and juicy. Teetotalers can enjoy root beer floats. Happy hour runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day, but Christie's also features nightly drink specials.
