“Way overpriced -- a serious ripoff and proud of it.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013

There are a lot better sports bars in St. Pete Beach than this joint. We orderers fish tacos and chicken tenders. With the tenders came a tiny tub of honey mustard you could put in a thimble. When I asked for a refill, the waiter said it would cost 75 cents. Are you serious? Send the manager, I said, and I told him I thought it was cheesy and cheap to charge someone extra for honey mustard. He did too, he said, but once you pushed the button on the register it happened automatically. It didn't occur to him apparently to go to the kitchen and get one to make a pissed of customer happy. The chicken tenders were nothing but big chunks of chicken dumped in a fryer. The tacos were greasy. And then the bill came: $2.90 for a twelve ounce plastic bottle of water. $6.00 for a few chips and watered down ketchup. Neither the waiter or the manager could have cared less about our experience. You can do a lot better at a sports bar across the street.

“Definitely the best bar on the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

This sports bar has it all. Tons of televisions playing every game from every city. Good mixed crowd from all over the US. Games, pool, pinball, foosball, and a a great bartender, Simon, who brings it all together making it the best bar on the beach. Guy can really make a drink! They also have amazing specials, real reasonable prices, and good food. Simply put, if you are in town go visit Simon and enjoy. Had to post about it after having a great couple of days over the Thanksgiving holiday.

“Female freindly, even if you don't like sports!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

Located in the Beachcomber Resort Hotel, Players Sports Bar and Grille is user friendly, whether you are really into the games, male or female, local or from out of town, and offers the same menu as Jimmy B's Beach Bar which is also on the property. A class act for a "sports bar". Pub food, but good and reasonably priced. Great service, drinks, and a comedy club offering acts certain nights of the wk. Ck. their website at Beachcomber.com. I am not a fan of sports bars, but because this operation has so many familiar faces (it's like family, yr. after yr.) same staff, waitresses, bartenders, that work here, no matter who is working & where you are drinking or eating, excellent service is a priority. Privately owned, on hands management staff with yrs. of experience with this facility, it runs like a charm. FYI, very clean, everywhere. Player's looks news. Walk through the fountain gardens to Jimmy's Bs and be on the gulf beaches. Great drinks in a well run, clean, organized business with great prices. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Location is excellent.

“food good, bartendar fabulous, better that Jimmy B's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

Food is better and the bartendar better that Jimmy B's. At Jimmy B's if you get the bartender Sarah, don't expect ANY bybacks.
She's only interested in taking care of her regulars. don't waste your time with her.
