Greeted by bouncer. That was it. Sat at table for 10 minutes, never greeted by waitress, no one made eye contact, left. Will not go back, ever.

“Friendly Sports Bar, But Food is Expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2013

Went there before seeing a movie at Tinseltown. Had never been here before. Went during the day. Sat at the bar. It felt like being at Cheers! The guy to the left of me was a construction worker. Guy to the right of me was a businessman. Bartender was very friendly and service was good. Customers at the bar all seemed like regulars. However, most everything on the menu was expensive. Ended up having onion rings, which were reasonably priced.

“Okay but a noisy, dark and dingy layout”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013

They have blackened out their windows to put in TV's all around the place. But this has given the bar a dark and dingy look and feel. Mostly a younger crowd (20's) with patrons who like to be loud. Okay to grab a beer, but not much else.

“It Is What It Is......”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

Sports Bars are difficult, as they pretty much deliver what you'd expect from a Sports Bar......casual atmosphere, average food based on casual dining and so-so service....you're not expecting 4 or 5 star anything and Rookie's delivers pretty much that......it's a sports bar, period. If you're hungry and want to grab a bite and watch some sports on the big screen, this is your place...., then enjoy!!!

“Good Sports Bar with Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2012

This is my kind of sports bar. Comfortable for adults and family. Lots of BIG TV screens. Good size menu and good choice of beers Good service. And the food is very good. Two Dads with two 15 year-old boys stopped here while in town for a sports tournament after taking in a movie at Tinsletown Cinemas (highly recommended too) and all four of us left happy.

We would definitley syop here again!
