Welcome to Benchwarmers.... a great place for friends and family alike.
Ankeny's original sports bar!
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 into the new menu, but a majority of ithas 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.
