Established in 1991, Benchwarmers is Ankeny's oldest local sports bar and recently got a facelift with the new ownership of Joe Ferin, Marcus Pitts & Mike Krantz... The revitalized venue can seat up to 175 people with a back party room that can hold up to 60. Some of the food favorites like "Mick's Original Prime Rib Sandwich" and "Benchwarmer's Famous Cavatelli" made the transition to the new menu but a majority of the menu has been changed to a lighter fare of sandwiches, burgers, wraps and salads. Benchwarmers still serves their world famous pizza and added some local flare to the menu with the "Paul Rhoads Pizza" and "Pezzetti's Hot Italian Sandwich" to name a few. If you're really hungry, stop in on Monday for all you can eat wings for 45 cents a piece or maybe even try "The Fontana" burger. Hours are Monday through Friday 11am - Close. Sat 10am - 2am and Sunday 10am - Close with drink specials daily. For take-out orders or to book a party please call 515-965-2556 and please check us out on Facebook.
