Cozy; good food although a bit heavy

Cozy spot with dark atmosphere and tvs at every booth. I'm not a sports fan but obviously it's great to sit and eat and watch games right at your booth. The food is tasty but feels a bit heavy afterwards.

Well known as a locals hangout for its good food, TV's and drinks. The interior is light and very lively...could be loud with a bigger crowd - each booth has its own TV [think old time juke boxes]...you control channels, and there are TV's on the walls and bar. Very comfortable...we sat at the bar and ordered a Caddy margarita... More

It's been awhile since I was here, but I just didn't think the food was very good. I ordered a Cobb Salad and it said chicken but was some sort of luncheon meat. Not good. The mac and cheese looked (and smelled) like it came from a box and it was overpriced for the quality overall. Not sure I will... More

I had stopped in for a beer and to watch baseball. For the most part this is just your average smelly dive bar. Friendly staff but slow service. The bar tender was inattentive and the drinks were a bit higher priced than other area bars. I would not waste my time going back to try the food.

Busy sports bar with your standard burgers menu. Reasonable choices of bar snacks. Loads of screens to make sure you have an good view of the sports event.

Sneakers used to be great but over time it is now just so-so. We went for lunch recently and noticed that the prices were high. The quality was varied. One person had a burger and they said it was good. One had french onion soup and it wasn't that good. It was not served in a crock, the cheese was... More

Great for kids, family, or just a bite while you do the sport bar thing. A very popular restaurant with a reason to be comfortable and relaxed with easy food choices

A bit pricey, but delicious burgers. Great side of cole slaw. Prompt service. Nice sports bar. Caters to families.
