The Classic Burger at Tie Breakers.

Tie Breakers Sports Bar & Grill is a one-stop shop for sports enthusiasts, foodies and families seeking a fun-filled dining experience. Locally owned and in business since 2001, it is a family-friendly place that has a little something for everyone.

Owner Brayom Anderson describes the restaurant “a true sports fare for family and friends.” He also wants patrons to “break the chain and eat local” to support local business owners.

The restaurant has a spacious feel with ample seating; multiple pool tables; a wide, welcoming bar area; large performing stage and dance floor; video poker; and video games to feed your kid side. It has a large outdoor patio with additional seating as well. There are more than 25 flat-screen televisions throughout, so you won’t have to worry about missing your favorite sports team.

The bar is fully stocked with plenty of beers on tap and more than 70 craft beer selections. Some popular craft beer choices include the New Holland Dragon’s Milk Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout, D9 Defying Gravity Wild Sour Ale and the Stone Exalted IPA.

Tie Breakers has a diverse menu that includes appetizers, quesadillas, burgers, salads, wings and sides with prices starting at $6. The lunch menu includes sliders, drumsticks, barbecue sandwiches, chicken tenders and lunch combos. You also can order any of the items from the regular menus. Lunch menu prices start at $5.50.

Let’s start with everyone’s favorite boneless chicken wings. No frozen wings here. They are the real deal, hand-cut, generous-sized chunks of white-meat chicken with a flaky breading that has been seasoned with Old Bay and mild Buffalo sauce. It has just enough spice to add some heat to your tongue but not enough to make fire come out of your ears. They were tender, moist and flavorful, and I love the scratch-made cool dipping sauce. Twelve wings are $13, 10 are $11, and four wings are $6.50.

Now, let’s move onto to the Tie Breaker’s Classic burger (TBC). One-third pound of Angus beef is cooked to order and topped with a slice of melted American cheese. Put this beefy goodness between a salt-and-pepper toasted bun, add lettuce, tomatoes, sliced onions and pickles. It’s served with fries seasoned with cayenne, salt and pepper. The burger was juicy and flavorful, and the pickles had a crisp and bold taste. The fries had a kicked-up heat flavor from the cayenne and were this burger’s perfect mate. This dish is priced at $8.

Tie Breakers offers a variety of weekly specials. Mondays, enjoy 30 Second Rock musical bingo, boneless wings for 75 cents each, $2.50 domestic draft beer or $4.50 craft draft beers. On Tuesday, put on your smart hat for Hollywood Trivia Night and enjoy $2 domestic bottle beer or $5 old-fashioned burgers. On Wednesday, learn how to shag with free lessons at 5:30 p.m. followed by shagging to great beach music from 7-10 p.m. Enjoy $5 wine by the glass or $3 imported bottled beer. Thursday, grab the family and friends and head out for Team Feud night. Enjoy $6 classic TBC burgers or craft bottle or can beer for $4.

Come in on Friday and enjoy $2.50 Rolling Rocks, PBR or Natural Light while you listen to live music from 10 p.m.-2 a.m. This Friday, the Still Shakers will perform. Welcome the weekend by coming in on Saturday and test your vocal skills with karaoke night with DJ Captain Morgan at the helm. On Sunday, test your poker skills during World Tavern Poker. You can also enjoy $10 domestic pitchers or $4 bloody marys or mimosas while watching and cheering for your favorite sports team.

Q: My family recently celebrated our son’s birthday. We had a number of guests RSVP “yes” to our invitation who not only didn’t show, but also didn’t even have the decency to contact us to let us know. It’s been a week since the party.

I’m stuck with a hoarder’s memory.

My brain — my attic, if you will — is entirely too full of random stuff. Entire passages of books I’ve read. Minor details of geography. Lyrics of Broadway show tunes. Odd bits of trivia with little apparent use or connectivity.
