Southern Nachos at Tie Breakers.

Tie Breakers Sports Bar and Grill is a haven for sports enthusiasts, foodies and families seeking tasty food and a fun-filled night.

The newly remodeled restaurant has ample seating, three pool tables, a large bar area, a stage and dance floor, video games for the kids and video poker for the parents. Tie Breakers has been serving up food and fun since 2001. Owner Brayom Anderson has been in the restaurant business for 15 years and before that worked in law enforcement in Greenville. He is active in the community and makes sure that Tie Breakers gives back to the community through Rock the Arts and other philanthropic events throughout the year.

Tie Breakers’ updated and expanded menu offers guests past favorites and new additions with prices ranging from $6-$14.50. Back by popular demand are the hand-breaded fried pickles, jalapenos, mushrooms and onion rings. New additions include pulled pork nachos, Queso dip and everyone’s favorite, drumsticks. New burgers include the Cowboy burger, which features pulled pork barbecue, or the Barnyard burger with a fried egg on top.

A great option to share with a group of friends or the family is the Southern Nachos. A heap of crispy tortilla chips are smothered with Monterey Jack and cheddar cheeses, grilled chicken, barbecue sauce, sliced tomatoes and onions. You can add jalapenos on top if you crave a bit of spice. The nachos were a fusion of mouth-watering flavors topped with melting, gooey cheese. The dish was filling and I enjoyed the sweet barbecue sauce drizzled throughout. It’s the perfect shareable plate to eat while watching your favorite sports team. Price is $10.

Add some heat to this food game with the hand-breaded boneless wings. These are the largest and most substantial sized wings I have ever had. Grilled chicken breasts that are cut into wide chunks, hand-breaded and fried to a spicy, mouth-flaming Buffalo sauce finish. The top is dusted with a bit of Old Bay seasoning, and it’s served with a scratch-made ranch dressing that is cool and classic and a side of sliced carrots and celery sticks. I chose the Buffalo sauce, but there are more 15 sauces and dry rubs to choose from including Caribbean jerk, honey citrus pepper, lemon pepper or Jim Beam Devils Cut barbecue. The wings fit right in with the upbeat bar and grill atmosphere. You get a nice bite of heat at the end from the glossy Buffalo sauce, and if you want it less spicy or even grilled, the dish can be customized to your preferred spice level. Cost is $5.50 for six wings; $9.50 for 10 and $14.50 for 12.

The Cheeseburger Quesadilla consists of cooked hamburger meat, shredded cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and pickle all grilled inside a flour tortilla. It was another delicious slam dunk with the perfect balance of flavors. Price is $8.50. 

Weekly specials include 50-cent wings and $2.50 domestic bottled beer on Mondays. Tuesday is trivia night with domestic and draft craft pints and all-you-can-eat traditional wings for $12.50. On Wednesdays, learn how to shag with free lessons at 5:30 p.m. followed by shagging to great beach music until 10 p.m. while enjoying $12 bottles of wine. Thursdays, sports fan can enjoy NFL football night and Tie Breakers classic burgers for $6 or craft beer for $4. Every Friday, enjoy live music along with a $4 well drink or bomb. Saturday is karaoke night with DJ Captain Morgan at the helm. On Sundays, enjoy a fun day with $10 domestic pitchers and mini craft pitchers while watching your favorite NFL team.

It’s an odd-ball sort of bush.
