So I checked out the new Looney's South

in Maple Lawn. What if I wrote the review in the voice of the average Looney's South patron?

It's pretty cool,  bro. Tons of flat screens. Like, you can't even see the walls 'cause there's so many flat screens. They've got stage, too, man. Some band was playing. They were OK.

Hee hee. It was pretty crazy in there, though. Took me a while to find the place, too ...

I got lost in the labyrinth of faceless shopping plazas that is Columbia for a while. Since it's so new, the number for Looney's isn't listed yet. After a few tries, somebody finally picked up the phone at the Looney's in Canton and gave me the number for the Looney's in Maple Lawn.

Even then, I had to drive around a while before I found it, because it doesn't have a sign out front yet. That didn't stop hundreds of thirsty bar-goers from descending on the place, though. At 10 p.m., it was slammed. I think it shows you just how much the area needed a big sports bar.

Hey broski, gimme a jager bomb!

Jager bomb! Jager bomb! Jager bomb!

They had a rough beginning St Patty's week. We were not given the 1/2 price burger special as advertized on one occasion and the rolls were slightly stale and falling apart. One of my friends never received the nachos that he ordered and a double order of wings and potatoe skins were mistakenly brought to the table(only one of each was ordered).A friend reported that a limited menu was offered on one visit(after perusing the menu for 15-20 minutes) w/no sunday brunch(as advertized). They ran out of Blue Moon on another occasion.However the next week, things seemed to be operating more smoothly. I recommend the Murphy's wings. They are spicy,tangy,sweet!

I can imagine this place staying in business for quite a long time, considering how badly needed it was in the area. Makes you wonder what took so long.

I have been to Looney's South about five times now since they opened, and everytime it gets better and better.
Graneted opening ST PAtrick's day weekend probably wasn't the best of moves, but I heard they were under alot of pressure from the Landlord and community to get open.. It has to be the Best Bar/Rest around. It really has something for everyone. great food, more hi def tvs than anyone and an awesome staff. Go check it out. And they have only been open 2 weeks

The real question (or at least the one I care most about) - how was the beer selection?
