BarFly's Review of Kingston
Rambling sports bar packs in a noisy crowd on game days (it's spitting distance from PGE Park); days off are usually dead. Small gameroom with Golden Tee, Ms PacMan, etc. A reliable choice for breakfast (served until 2pm daily), but otherwise not known for its food. Lots of daily drink specials.
Open 7am-2:30am everyday

Foods good, drinks are good, some hot waitresses and there are plenty of TVs. Give it a shot and I bet you'll come back... Thats my story, ive been going a bunch lately-
Sports bars have High Definition TV's and many screens. This place has a handful of old Panasonic 25"er's and one projection screen that is barely visible because the image is so light. For sports, go to Buffalo Wild Wings downtown. Come here if you want to feel sad for yourself feel like losing a few hundo in the VP machines.
They have a sign inside hanging on the wall that says you must show 2 (Two) pieces of ID, prooving you're 21. (Just thought I'd comment on that, I've never seen a sign like that one, before)...
But ANYWAY, I went there the other day for one of the German Pancakes, they are AWESOME. Don't put any maple syrup on it--it's so yummy it doesn't need it. Just dress it up with the Lemon wedge and Powedered Sugar, and you'll be ROCKIN!'
i used to work at the kingston in the late 90's and it was a blast! the waitstaff was awesome, the customers were great, and we used to party like rock stars. i moved away, and when i come back to town and hang out there, it sucks! oh, and Gary the owner is a real dick!
Sometimes walking into the Kingston feels like walking into a high school cafeteria. A crowd of backwards-hatted kids yelling and acting as if they think they're impressing the one cute chick in sight. If you like loud crowds of just-turned-21s screaming at sporting events on television screens as if the players can hear them, then you will love the Kingston. During the rare hours when there aren't any major games going on, it's a nice peaceful place to relax. Full bar, happy hour specials, bar menu, extensive breakfast, lunch & dinner menu. The breakfasts are good except for the steak & eggs. The steak is one sorry pathetic sad example of beef. Lunch & dinner is risky except for the club sandwich and burgers. Unless you're scared of "mad cow" in which case don't order anything except the club sandwich. The beer selection here is not the best either. They used to have Molson on tap, but during 2004 they replaced it with fucking PBR. PABST BLUE RIBBON, yechh. The favorite of the backwards hatted crowd, of course. They have the standards like Bud and Bud Light or is it "Lite" but most of what they call their good beers are weird microbrews. No quality imports like Kirin Ichiban, Sapporo, Moosehead, Becks or St. Pauli Girl. There are 5 video poker machines that will rapidly suck away your money, an old Ms. Pac Man game and a Golden Tee golf console in a small game room.
