Football season is finally here. And what better way to celebrate than grabbing some friends and heading to one of Northern Utah’s sports bars to cheer on your team? 

While you always have the option of stopping by a Buffalo Wild Wings or an Applebees (both have locations in Riverdale and Layton), here are six other spots you could try to catch the game at next Saturday or Sunday.

Did we leave your favorite out on the list? Tell us in the comments below!


Location: 2309 Washington Blvd. in Ogden

Hours: 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 11 a.m. to midnight on Fridays and Saturdays; and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays. 

Description: With three huge projectors, plenty of TVs and large, cushy booths, Iggy’s Sports Grill is a prime spot to catch the game while dining with family or friends. If you’re by yourself, pull up a spot at the bar and check out the speciality beers on tap. Make sure you order one of their award-winning burgers like the Pig-Out or the Ahola, and settle in to cheer on your favorite teams. 


Location: 2332 Kiesel Ave. in Ogden

Hours: 11 a.m. to 12 a.m. Monday through Sunday

Description: If you’re wanting to snack on wings while watching sports this fall, Wing Nutz at The Junction in Ogden is the place to go. “We pride ourselves on making each of our Wing Nutz locations a unique paradise,” the restaurants says on its website. Wing Nutz offers baked wings with their featured sauces. Order one of the samplers and you’ll be set for the rest of the game. 


Location: 119 N. 600 West in Ogden or 1104 Country Hills Drive in South Ogden

Hours: 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Saturday; and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays. 

Description: “Sports lovers, this is the place to be!” boasts Steiny’s website. If that doesn’t sell you, then the 27 plasma screen TVs between their two locations should. Brothers John and Joey Stein opened a second Steiny’s location in South Ogden in 2015, serving up the same appetizers, burgers and stadium dogs from their original location in the Business Depot Ogden. Catch a game and enjoy a beer or glass of wine out on Steiny’s patio while the weather’s still nice.


Location: 3651 Wall Ave. Suite 1232 in Ogden and 641 Olsen Plaza in Layton 

Hours: 10 a.m. to 1 a.m., Monday through Sunday. No minors allowed after 9 p.m. at Ogden location.

Description: Sports fans can’t go wrong with ‘Bout Time’s sports programming. The pub has more than 22 TVs in every direction that show games from the NFL, MLB, NHL, the Big Ten Network and ESPN Game Plan. “You walk into a place that you can call your own,” ‘Bout Time says on it’s website. Signature items include their Fajita Salad, the Island Cowboy steak and the Western Burger. ‘Bout Time also has an MVP program for frequent quests that offers exclusive coupons and discounts. 


Location: 694 Antelope Dr. in Layton

Hours: 11 a.m. to midnight, Monday through Sunday

Description: No sports bar list would be complete without pizza. Boston’s Pizza in Layton offers gourmet pizzas and calzones — along with other bar staples like burgers and wings — and has an extensive beer, wine and cocktail selection. 


Location: 145 Pierpont Ave in Salt Lake City 

Hours: 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., Monday through Friday; and 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday and Sunday 

Description: If you’re in downtown Salt Lake City and want to catch a game, pop into Lumpys Bar. “Lumpys is the ultimate neighborhood sports bar where you can find every game imaginable on TV,” the bar writes on its website. Enjoy brunch as Sunday football games kick off and wash it all down with $3 Bloody Marys and mimosas.
