Rookies Sports Lodge - Downtown
Great downtown spot. Looking forward to when it reopens.
We were there for Superbowl and it was packed - thankful for the reservation! The staff was amazing during Superbowl - very attentive, even though it was so busy!
Food and atmosphere was great. Serive was slow because they were understaffed
Very good food. Excellent service in a welcoming downtown venue. We consider it the best sports bar within at least 35 miles. Oh yeah, and the check doesn't wipeout your wallet either.
Great food great service I have not had any bad experiences I've been coming here for several years now !
Great spot to watch football on Sunday’s. Sound on.
Fun downtown place. Good burger. Nice TVs. Energetic and you could still yourself think.
Had lunch with coworkers at Rookies. The service was prompt and friendly. I had the fish tacos, I requested a special order, it was no problem. Food was delicious.
Great sports bar with awesome food and beverage choices. And TV screens everywhere.
Servers are very quick and professional.
I really enjoyed my time at Rookie's! It's a fun and vibrant place to watch a game and super attentive wait staff. I loved the nachos--super hearty and you can definitely share among 2-3 people. Get the chicken or steak--you won't regret it. So many screens and definitely a good selection of beers and cocktails.
Watching college BB playoffs then headed to Sharks Game. Great place to begin the fun
Close to the Improv ~ great place to hit up before the show. Sat in bar and watched sports....caught up with friends, and it was fun. Good atmosphere!
Great spot for bar food & sports but they need to update their cleaning supplies. Entire time there was a strong smell of cleaning supplies, bleach mixed with another putrid smell.
Great space for watching sports. Fabulous service. Food was ‘meh’. Family of 4, no one ate all their food, no one wanted to-go boxes.
I have been here a couple times and it always seems like chaos. The food is good but the service people seem overworked and so service is slow. Also, they are unable to split a check between more than 3 people which makes going here with a group difficult.
Our host and servers were all awesome!
They were so helpful and accommodating.
Great atmosphere, but service is spotty. Taste wise the food is good, but for lack of a better word the plates look sad.
Horrible service and food was cold. Not worth the money, went there before a sharks game and it wasn’t that busy for such horrible service
Great, friendly service at the bar. But why did I receive no booking points for this reservation?
Bacon Avocado Salad with Steak was superb! I am still dreaming about it.
Friendly service, clean restaurant, clean restroom, great music, lively atmosphere, delicious food, and reasonable prices.
Short, convenient walk from SJCPA. Everyone enjoyed their food.
Service was extremely slow. Took 15 minutes or more before a waitress came around to take our order. Ordered a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon, was told they were all out. Seems like the poor waitress was so overworked. She tried to keep a smile on her face. Couldn’t blame her for the slow service. Table next to us had the manager come by to their table, their food took forever to come. Could tell they were extremely upset. Food was pretty good. Had the calamari and nachos, which were huge. Probably faster service if we sat at the bar and ate.
GS Game 3 FTW!
Girlfriend and I got together to watch the warriors game! Great atmosphere and TVs were easy to see.
Great sports bar plus more. Good selection of beer, wine, and spirits. Friendly staff and great service. Good for before or after the Theater a short walk away. Plenty of close by parking.
Tasty food and great service. We came in at a pretty quiet time but the overall experience was good. Definitely a good place for sports. Food was a little expensive but still a great alternative to say, Buffalo Wild Wings, if going for sports or a casual date.
Came here on a spur of the moment Friday date night. I made a reservation on Open Table, but found the place to be relatively empty upon a 9:00pm arrival. Was seated quickly and our server was very attentive. There are so many screens to watch sports on! My boyfriend was very happy because he could watch several baseball games at once and now knows of a new place to bring his buddies on game nights. Food was reasonably priced and pretty good. I ordered a cranberry raspberry vinaigrette salad and he got the tacos. We both thought our plates were filling and delicious for a sports bar/lounge.
Overall enjoyed our experience; actually planning on revisiting. Only real issue was asking 3x for a condiment before actually getting it. Like the vibe of the place, plenty of televisions for watching sports, and good beer selection.
Super nice waitresses and management! Took Care of us very well!
Met a friend to catch up and watch the NFL playoffs casually in the background. Service was great, food better than expected for pub fare, and TV's were everywhere! No bad seat in the house for sports watching!
We received excellent service and good food. It’s very loud, being that it’s a sports bar, but they were accommodating and found us a quieter spot.
Terrible service by management, food was extremely late in arriving, manager walked away during conversation . I'll never return
I was in town for work, staying at the Marriott up the street. I decided I needed a sports bar fix, especially since it was the playoffs.
Well I was totally blown away by the staff, and food. I decided it was a wine and fish night. I ordered a nice cab and the grilled salmon.
Boy was that the right choice. Food and wine were amazing. Also I had no less that three people taking care of all my needs.
Thanks so much for making me feel welcome and at home.
Great food , ambience and service
We had a great time. Impressive beer list and some good apps. Helped with the kiddos. Nice and clean. Nothing bad to say. Thx
The service was pretty dreadful. While the main server to our table was nice, we had put in for a reservation for noon during the week. Upon arriving, we weren't helped for at least 5 min (restaurant was more or less empty), and a table was not set up for the large group we had. I had assumed that putting in a reservation meant the table would be ready upon arrival, and the hostess would already be prepared for us when we got there... not at all.
The food was great, but also took at least 40 minutes before it came out.
Overall, food was great, but service was terrible. If you're in a hurry for lunch, do not go to Rookies.
This is a great place to watch a sporting event. The energy is great! I've been here 3 times now. Service can be slow, but it has always been super crowded when I've been there, so I can understand why. The food is average, but they have a phenomenal beer selection on tap, including local breweries.
Great bar scene, good bar food, great beers and drinks.
During big events (Warriors Finals Games) etc staff just overwhelmed with the amount of people in the bar. Have more people on shift.
I'll be back during football season tho!
Service was Just ok. Our waitress was very nice but very slow getting our drinks and food. Even that was a busy night because the Warriors game we can see other tables being served quickly and their waitress being on top asking how was everything, taking out dirty dishes and asking what else they wanted. Not our waitress :(
