I dreaded coming here with friends. Sports bar for lunch, yuck. But actually pretty modern and nice inside. Decent food and decent service. Pleasantly surprised that it wasn't terrible.

We needed a decent restaurant close to our hotel and found Knuckles. Looked good, not keen on large screen TV in our booth and menu looked pricey but food appeared well presented. Not the best Caesar Salad I've ever tasted and not worth $18. Service became slower the longer we stayed and we were desperate to leave by the end.... More

It is part of the Hyatt but gives the appearance of a sports bar. There are 18 TV’s around the bar, most are behind. The big bonus is they have small boxes that allow different tables to listen to different commentary; this allows people who want to talk to enjoy each other’s company. The drinks selection is not vast but... More

This is nice place to go for a family meal or dinner. Maybe a bit pricey but the food is great. Convenient if staying at the nearby Fishermans wharf hotels, you wont find a mountain of food but you will find very good dining and quality.

Had a fish and chips, my buddy had a chicken wings, and everything was great. Went back for a clam chowder -- what a mistake! Some reason the chowder was sour, like it had sour cream or turned milk, or even, shudder, parmesan cheese? Waitress took it back to the kitchen, where the chef pronounced it perfect, which shows he... More

Easy option when staying at Hyatt. Great draft beer lineup and good bar food! It's one of the places that stays open later in the wharf, so even if not staying at the Hyatt, great to check it out for a few beers

I stayed at the Hyatt Regency for a sporting event. I wanted to keep dinner simple the night before, so I headed to Knuckles. I had a cocktail and ordered the nachos. The server was very friendly and the food came out fairly quickly, but to my surprise, it was the bright orange "squeeze cheese" instead of real melted cheese.... More

Knuckles was a good sports bar and the service was pretty good but I'm not sure if I'd go back. A little more upscale than I enjoy and seemed to be more set up for sit down meals rather than drinks and bar snacks. Having said that the drinks were well served and the bar snacks (sliders etc) were of... More

A nice place to rest in the afternoon. Meals were good, a little pricey compared to nearby restaurants.

We got a voucher from restaurant.com for this meal. We arrived for a late lunch around 2pm and was seated at a booth with a tv, that my husband loved. I ordered the soup (veg chilli) and sandwich (grilled cheese) which was lovely and a huge portion. my husband order a burger and garlic fries. Food took a while to... More
