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.

For a Tuesday night dinner, we came to Sneakers Pub and Grill, which is a locally-owned restaurant in downtown San Carlos. Tuesday, by the way, is Kids Eat Free Night (one kid per one adult). The hostess at the front took us to a table in the back. There is no real "bad seating" at Sneakers, since all the booths... More

Good food is what matters. My husband and I went for lunch and had the pear and walnut salad with grilled chicken and it was good food. The portion size was large and the service was prompt. What more could you ask for.

We always make it a point to go to Sneakers when we're in the Bay Area. We usually just sit at the bar, have a drink and chat with the friendly bartender, but we have eaten there several times too. What's great is that most tables either have their own personal flat screen TV (love that!), or there are many... More
