    [TL;DR - extremely long waits for food, drinks, and even bills, plus terrible attitude and refusal to apologize] I've never felt compelled to write a bad review of any business until now. I spent nearly 10 years working as a line cook, so I'm pretty empathetic with servers on bad nights. That said, this place has gone seriously downhill over the last year. I have a group of 12 friends who go to Rally at least twice a month for the smoked wings, but sadly none of us plan to return any longer. Last night, eight of us celebrated our friend's birthday, and even with the wing promo and Leafs game on, at no point was it fully packed or there a wait at the door. Still, our server did a terrible job that compounded throughout the night. Some friends waited nearly an hour for drinks (especially our birthday boy), we waited nearly 90 minutes for our second food order (which the server had to come back and retake because she forgot our order), my order of wings was incorrect (which I ate anyway because I didn't feel like waiting any longer), my friend's beer was flat (though they did replace this with another beer - thank you), and at one point our friend had to ask the bartender permission to retrieve his drink directly from the bar after seeing it sitting there for more than 15 minutes as our server scrambled elsewhere. To make matters worse, the server got all of our bills wrong, trying and failing another two times to get the bills right. At no point did we give her attitude as she was actually quite sweet and clearly struggling, but we were obviously getting antsy to settle and leave. At one point, she approached each of us individually to run down our orders, and still couldn't get it right - all of this totalling another hour. Then a second server stepped in, immediately acting defensive, giving us attitude, and claiming we had been giving them attitude, even though until that point (and even afterward), we were being cooperative, trying to help clarify matters, and were waiting beyond a reasonable amount of time because we fully intended to pay what was owed. After this second server attempted to resolve matters for another 30 minutes, she came back explaining we owed five orders of wings and one beer on top of what we claimed to order and consume. We stuck to our guns, as we're all honest, and frankly subscribe to the notion that the customer is always right. After waiting for more than 90 minutes on the bills alone, the second server explained that the original server closed out one of our friends' bills incorrectly, causing a discrepancy in their system. One of our other friends, who also worked in the restaurant industry, gave an ultimatum to charge us what we had ordered and resolve what was logged in their system on their own time. The second server finally agreed to do so, continuing to give us attitude and act defensively - but we were able to pay for what we got, and got to go home two hours later than planned. At no point did either server apologize for the incorrect orders, flat beer, or extremely long wait times on a relatively quiet night (given the wing promo and Leafs game scheduled). If our original server was new on the team, a first-time ever server, or simply having a bad night, an explanation of this would have more than sufficed - we all get it - but no reasoning given for the screw ups and no apology given. I strongly suggest Rally ownership and management consider retraining or even letting these two servers go. I've had the second server before and she screwed up my order then too, never apologizing or offering to compensate the issue in any way. None of us plan to return any longer, but I hope this review helps Rally address the issue internally, and if it doesn't I hope this helps inform future patrons to avoid the place.

    We usually come here with 15+ people for our mid or end of season basketball runs. The food and service are great. There's plenty of parking and plenty of room to sit big groups for watching any games.

    It is an awkward layout for the TVs for a sports bar. I'm not even sure what to recommend, but just want to say that unless you're in front of the big screen, you don't get a great view.

    Came to watch the NBA Finals game but the atmosphere was dead on a Monday night, was very disappointed they would not open the back and allow us to watch the game on the projection TV due to lack of staff and lack of customers. Service was OK but at one point they told us they ran out of ribs during their all you can eat ribs special, but that was actually communicated to us in error due to miscommunication from the chef. The ribs were just OK, I am a repeat customer and I have tried almost every item on their menu but the ribs were really average at best and I was hoping they would be on par as the other great items. The ribs were only OK because they were inconsistent - they were warm (not hot), dry sometimes, and most pieces lacked sauce. All in all I still love this place but they could do a lot better for a Monday special!

    Staff was great, managing all 15 of us, even though we were all eating and drinking at different paces. She even handled the dreaded chair-hopping customers with no problem at all. We'll be back next time we do a group event.

    We were pleasantly surprised when we went for dinner as part of Winterlicious. The food was much better than expected for a "sports bar" with my husband commenting they were the best mussels he's had. Service was a little slow due to the number of large parties that were there, but pleasant and the server acknowledged and apologized for the longer than normal wait time - without us having said anything about it.
