Best Places to Watch Sports on TV in the St. Cloud Area – Jay’s Top 5
Whether it’s the Big Game, college ball, hockey or hoops — where you watch the game DOES make a difference. Here’s my list of the best places in the St. Cloud area to watch sports on TV — and maybe have an adult beverage or three.
BWW has built a successful sports viewing reputation in most communities and St. Cloud is no exception to that. At least 2 to 3 flat screen TVs are viewable regardless of whether you’re sitting in the bar or the dining area. The T.V. views plus the combination of great wings and beer makes this for best sports viewing atmosphere and experience in St. Cloud. Has the NFL ticket, and is great for watching the NCAA tournament.
The Ultie may have the most television per square footage and you are the closest to each of these T.V.s because they are mounted not as high up as most bars/restaurants. Patrons also have the option to listen to their favorite sporting event as they are watching it. Appetizers and beer are very affordable but atmosphere could use some improving. Has the NFL ticket, all the college basketball games and often offers pay-per-views for boxing, MMA and college hockey.
The Blueline has built a great reputation for its food but also has a large amount of flat screen TVs to give patrons adequate viewing options. The televisions are a distance away and there are only a few viewable TVs depending on where you are sitting.
Boulder Tap House is brand new and is located in the old Timberlodge building. Clearly Boulder Tap House is making a strong push to become the place to watch sports in St. Cloud. They have a ton of flat screen T.V.’s but lack a reputation as a place to watch sports. The variety of beers will help their brand improve on that. A big concern has to be access to the restaurant.
Pesty’s is making a stronger push to become an elite sports bar. The size of the bar, (shortage by comparison) of flat screen televisions works against them. Pesty’s has affordable food and beer and gives patrons a comfortable environment.
