Now is a great time to be a sports fan — the NFL, NBA, and NHL seasons are all in progress. We asked you for your favorite places to watch your team play on TV while grabbing a bite, and you came out swinging. Here’s where you’ll find our readers during game time.
Glory Days Grill, 3790 Lakeside Village Ct.
Several readers recommend this joint for pulled pork bowls, tacos, and drinks. Pro tip: According to reader Sandi S., you can use a box on your table to hear the specific game of your choice.
Swan Brewing, 115 W. Pine St.
You can’t go wrong with any of the beers at this brewery, but reader Fred W. prefers the Straight Outta Lakeland IPA. Order from whichever food truck is on-site for fresh, delicious game day grub.
La La Land Liquor & Lounge, 3239 S. Florida Ave.
It’s the bartenders who make this reader Megan S.'s favorite place to catch a game. Cheer on your team with friends — and play darts or pool during halftime.
Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux, 3772 US Hwy. 98 N.
Head to Walk-On’s for Louisiana-inspired cuisine and plenty of huge screens. Reader M. A. is a fan of the food — we recommend ordering the Surf & Turf burger.
Winners Circle Sportsbar & Grill, 4215 S. Florida Ave.
Reader Brook A. loves this local spot for its hometown feel and community support. If you visit, order Brook’s favorite: The chicken wings — there are 60+ flavors to choose from.
