Last week was our first time back at Sneakers after an absence of several years. The menu choices appear to have increased but, other than that, the place has not changed much since we were "regulars". It is a very comfortable restaurant for families with children. The food was quite good and the service friendly and efficient. I would definitely... More

Had drinks and dinner here during a Sunday NFL gamer, awesome! What an atmosphere. The menu offers plenty of choice and despite it being busy service was fast, friendly and efficient. Well organized.

Sneakers is a staple in the neighborhood. Great variety with something to please everyone. They get busy during prime hours but the wait isn't too bad. The best was when they use to have a pizza oven. It appears to be gone but the food is still good.

Really enjoy most of their food. Wouldn't recommend the chili but love the buffalo chicken wrap and garlic fries are fantastic. They close a little early during the week which is frustrating but still a good place to go.

Great sweet potato fries (ask for them crispy and with the chipotle aioli sauce) Also super salads. Great place to watch all sorts of sports. Only complaint...I know this is a "family " restaurant, but please no kids shows on in the bar after 6pm! (Sponge Bob)

The food was okay. The atmosphere was okay and the restaurant was clean. The service was very slow. With so many nice casual restaurants in the area, I wouldn't return to Sneakers.

Sneakers is the local place to go for great drinks (and happy hour), big salads, burgers, random Mexican foods, and speciality pizzas and sandwiches, while watching sports. This place gets very crowded and is usually swarming with families with kids. Prices are consistent with the rest of the area (and sometimes $9 for wine shocks non-Californians). The drinks and food... More

I don't think that it should be that hard to set up and run a good grill and beer place. Take a look at how many good ones there are. Put up an extensive menu of salads, sandwiches, grilled meats and so on, get a good selection of beer on tap, add some sports on tv and friendly waiters, and... More

Sneakers succeeds at being three different restaurants in one. It's a sports bar, a family restaurant, and a neighborhood pub. The sports bar aspect is visible even before you come inside: the baseball bat door handles are a giveaway. Inside, team memorabilia, banners, and sports equipment make up most of the decor, augmented by TV screens large and small pretty... More
