Mooney's Sports Bar and Grill Officially Opens

Posted: Updated:

After gaining attention on social media over the past few months, Mooney's Sports Bar and Grill officially opened on Wednesday.

The Buffalo-originated sports bar transformed the old Ground Round to a restaurant that co-owner Brian Harris hope will be a new home to sports teams and families. 

The restaurant is known for over two dozen varieties of mac and cheese. 

"That's what kinda gets people through the door the first time is to sample our mac and cheese, but we're so much more than that," said Harris. 

Local officials joined Harris for the opening, with many looking forward to what the restaurant can add to Johnson City. 

"It's another part of rebuilding the village, rebuilding the life, making it sustainable again and really bringing that feeling back to the village that we had years ago," said Johnson City Mayor Greg Deemie. 

This is the 10th location of Mooney's.
