This is our favorite local hang out! For happy hour, lunch or dinner, to watch a game or a band...We love this place. The food is great, staff is friendly, it's super clean, and centrally located. It's been locally owned by a family here in Bloomington for 10+ years- and they always make us feel welcome!
Best Burgers in Town!!! – I was so impressed with quality of food Cheeks presented. The best part was how clean everything was. The staff was friendly and I felt really welcome and enjoyed the great atmosphere! They have pool tables and dart boards and the beer garden is exceptional! I would recommend Cheeks to anyone!
Nice setup but falls far short – Not pleased with this bar. NO DRAFT BEER?!?!? Also not a good place to leave your change laying around as the waitresses WILL take it. Good set up for games but service is poor.
You prefer draft beer...enough said. Also...perhaps the waitresses mistook your 'change' as a tip. Because that's what most civilized people do....TIP.
Avoid at all costs!! HORRIBLE!!!! – Unbelievably horrible and I will never forget it. We were having a great time playing darts & I had been sick with a cold and was sniffing & sneezing. I went to the bathroom a couple of times just to bl_w my nose. The last time I did I was in my stall & heard someone standing outside my stall & then knocked on it. Then they opened it & then closed it. Luckily I was dressed. I opened it and a man was standing there & rudely ordered me out of the bar immediately! VERY rudely & talking over me - so I couldn't even say anything! I was in complete shock.After many times asking him what is going on he finally told me that he doesn't want that stuff in here! I said what in the heck are you talking about?I had to say it several times before he would answer me. He said dr*gs. I was shocked! I said absolutly not! Where are you getting this from? He refused to answer me or listen to me at all - and just kept yelling at me to get out in my face. I said fine then let me get my coat and darts my coat I left at the table& he told me what coat? I don't see one,get out! & they pushed me out with out my coat. Then they argued with me & told me I didn't even have a coat there while I was standing out in the cold!! I said I will gladly leave this place but I am not leaving without my coat, it is brand new.It was 20 degrees out. So he stood there & smirked &said well what does it look like. So I had to go in great detail about it, he went in & came back out &said, no I couldn't find it. I said I know its in there so he went back in and came out with it. My bf suggested since he was SO sure of dr_gs that they go ahead and call the police right NOW. This guy claimed to be the owner that was making the accusations - but looked about 23. He immediately said NO- NO- we don't need THAT here. He refused to call them.
User review by wilson55 – Dont leave your change out or the waitresses will take it. No draft beer.
This cracks me up. "Change". Maybe they confused your quarter for a tip. ~ Jennie D.
