The Longest Yard(Bloor St/Islington Ave)

Well took the family out for dinner last night....unfortunately our usual haunt had a lineup, and everyone was hungry so we thought we would try the 'Longest Yard' that just opened up a couple weeks ago.
Had no expectations, as I have never been to the one on Mt Pleasant...we walked in and immediately my wife said it felt like we were in someone's basement. The decor was as plain as plain could be. Absolutely nothing on the walls, except bland white and flat black paint. Tables were arranged haphazardly, with little thought to customer comfort or flow. The place had no atmosphere at all.
The service was slow, and inconsistent, but probably attributed to new staff, with little or no experience.
The menu had a lot of selection, but I settled on the wings, as its what i usually get on a thursday night at our usual place. Well they were tiny, dry and kinda tough. And 7 wings wasnt anywhere near what I could eat, so I left somewhat hungry.
With two boys the kids menu was not that great, but they ordered the mac and cheese....Kids menu items were $6.99 , which in my mind is a little pricy. And the kids drinks.....honestly they came in a shot glass...

The owners came by and asked how everything was, which was a nice touch, but we lied and said everything was great.

Anyone else been there?
