Complete with a 16-foot HD screen surrounded by twelve 36-inch monitors, you’ll feel like Rodger Goodell will be handing you the Lombardi Trophy himself post-game.

Owned by the same folks who brought us famed TAPS Fish House & Brewery — The Catch in Anaheim is a classy upscale sports bar/lounge with outstanding food and drinks. Catch the Big Game on one of the 14 flat screens while sipping on a diverse roster of craft beers. Hungry? Then live out your own Man v. Food food challenge and order the OMG Burger, a monstrous 14-inch, four-pound burger fit for a true food maniac—or a group of friends.
Located in the heart of Downtown Anaheim, Caffé Primo on Center Street is a prime spot to gather your buds for grub, beer and the Big Game.
