Good time/good food

The location was great as we were staying in a hotel right next door. This is the epitome of a sports bar. If you didn't find something interesting to watch on one of the many TV's, you weren't trying. The server was very friendly with a good sense of humor. There were five of us, with one of... read more

Rookies is a great place on game day or for happy hour as they often have specials, they have good food (especially appetizers and nachos for sharing) for reasonable prices. Service is often a bit slow but if you are willing to wait, it isn't usually packed so is a great option.

All four of the Rookies offer good food and good service at a fair price. We find ourselves going to Rookies when we are in any of the four areas they serve, because they are consistently good.!

Every month Rookies amazes me by offering great food for just $1. It's either a great hamburger, or hotdog one month, then a delicious chicken sandwich the next month...all for only $1.00..!!

Great cheap eats during special promotions make this one of our favorite restaurants. Many times we have wanted a quick, flavorful - and above all - inexpensive meal. Their $1.50 hamburgers and hot dogs meet the ideal. The chips they come with are more than adequate, but with the burger or dog priced so low, why not get the fries... More

We stopped in a on a Friday night and the place was jumping. A mixed crowd of families with kids, drinkers and sports nuts. Even though it was busy, the service was great. We had a fun, hard working waitress. We all had burgers that were good. The beer selection offered many excellent choices. The dollar burger dinner ended up... More

Went last Friday to Rookies to watch the Hockey game with my wife and her friend. It was Margarita special night and frankly I've never had a better one . Outstanding ! Now the food could hardly be close and it wasn't . Their appetizer platter with about 6-7 offerings came with 6-7 sauces that were not marked and half... More

My daughter and I went there for lunch for their specials in July for the dollar burger, hotdog etc. I would gladly pay more money for a better Burger. It did not agree with either one of us. If you want a slice of cheese on it, it'll cost you an extra 1.99. Service and atmosphere was average. Would I... More

Great sportsbar/restaurant with enough TVs that you never miss a moment of your game of choice. If you like sitting at the bar, a bank of 8 big TVs allows for watching multiple games at once, sort of a sports fiend dream. The menu offers a broad selection of appetizers, sandwiches and entrees, and during four or five months out... More

Liked the patio seating, free popcorn and their calzone (named something else there). There's also a flat-screened tv outside which can be watched when sitting on the patio.
