I have been eating at this Country Club for years. Right now, the food and service is the best it has been for the last 15 years. The chef has some delicious recipes and I say he makes the best crab cakes I have ever eaten. The Sunday brunch is first-class. On Wednesdays there is a "Theme Night" with well cooked, large portions and dessert included for $14.00. What a deal! Upstairs is fancier, with a pricier menu and more varied menu than Chippers, which is downstairs.
Chippers has a more reasonably priced menu with kid's specials and daily specials. The food in both restaurants is always fresh and delicious. Beer is cold and drinks are cheap but well made and not weak or watery.
Sometimes Chippers gets crowded and you may wait a few extra minutes for service. Sports are showing on the several televisions. On Friday there is karaoke. Once the order is placed the food comes out fast and hot. This is the more kid-friendly choice.

There's two restaurants in this country club, I'm giving a 4 star because I can't give 3 and a half for the average between the places. The bottom restaurant (Chippers) is more of a bar feeling, decent enough food, wide variety of liquors, very friendly wait staff that remembers names and faces well. They also serve food to the people by the pool and offer limited outdoor seating.
The upstairs is a much nicer restaurant with a menu that's changed and updated often enough to keep it interesting. They offer theme nights like French and Spanish occasionally and have a nice enough decor to justify putting on a pair of heels.
To be honest though, the thing I love the best about this restaurant is their Sunday brunch. It's always great and has a very wide selection. They offer mimosas or other drinks but it's not included in the price, which is around $15 or $20 per person, I don't remember off hand even though I've been about 10x.
The atmosphere is much older in this restaurant since there's a lot of elderly in the area and it is a club house but in no way brings down my enjoyment while I'm there. It's the perfect sort of place to do family get togethers!

These people with negative comments must be stupid. Love PIRCC. Servers know you by name, great prices, cheap booze, and decent food what more could you ask for.

I attempted to eat here yesterday after a round of golf.  I sat down at a table and was never greeted by anyone from the restaurant.  after about 15 minutes I eventually walked out without eating.  This was due to the fact that no one ever came to our table.  

The menu was horrible and the interior smelled like a moldy basement.  Avoid at all costs and travel a quarter of a mile north where you will find numerous restaurants that are more than willing to serve you.

This review is on the Chipper's Sports Bar and Grill. This is actually the second time we've attempted to eat here. The first time, there were no servers to be found (for dinner) and we walked out after about 10 minutes. Tonight we made a request to change a TV to a certain sports game - it took us asking three more times to actually make it happen. We ordered a starter and asked that it came out first, it did not. Not only that but it came cold. We casually asked that it be "thrown in the microwave because they are a little cold," and it actually was. It came back hot on the top layer and soggy. The soup was good, and I would order that again (butternut squash) - but the steak special, was not something that would bring me back. Ordered it well done, and it came soaking wet - as if it was frozen and not thawed properly. No spice or anything on it, really just a piece of meat thrown on the grill for a set amount of time. The waitress was working the room for tips, and during the holiday season I couldnt blame her, but our experience just became aggravating watching her do this... Our experience was not fantastic and unfortunately we will avoid coming back if at all possible.
