Food was good but took forever for shrimp cocktail and food didn't all come together. Also waitress was very slow and hard to get her attention!

We came for the opening game of the Canucks season (we did this last year too - so, officially a tradition. The beers are big (and pricey) but, hey, it's the season opener. I had the ahi poke salad (excellent - and so much food - I couldn't finish it), and my pal had a salad with chicken added - the chicken was very dry unfortunately. Enjoyed sitting at the bar, and the large screen. Enjoyed the stadium sounds, too. Oh, and enjoyed the win for the nucks. Positives: beer selection, atmosphere, friendly service, and portion sizes. Negatives: beer prices seemed a little over the top (over $12), and the dry chicken.

The music was extremely loud and so bad.
Sounded like someone screaming....! No melody. Really ....you can't find better picks in music?
Couldn't not talk to my partner.
Have been many times in the past and this was The absolute worst and this was for an opening of the season.
The Thai chicken curry bowl was tasteless!

I have visited the Sportsbar several times, but after my last experience, I doubt I will be back.
I invited others, who had never been, and felt bad that I had suggested going there.
There was no happy hour, which surprised me. Before the Pink concert and not only was there happy hour, but it was extended until the start of the concert.
My sister was shocked her bar bill.
The food portions were small.
I love music... but it was too loud to hear even the person in next seat. What is fine point of having friends there together.
Disappointed. Not a good start to the evening.
I will stop recommending.

We always have a good time at the sports bar. The food is excellent and the waitresses are always on point very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The restaurant is always clean and well laid out as well. The only issue that I have seen is the hostesses are not organized and seem overwhelmed at seating people to their tables and navigating the computer system. Otherwise it’s an awesome place to eat and enjoy it every time I go.

This was our first time at the Sportsbar and we had a fantastic time. We were given a superb seat, comfy and with loads of space to stretch out in. The service was attentive and friendly, with hints and tips about the local area. Portion size was big and the hot dog excellent.

Food was great although I had to send my steak back as it was well done. They brought me another one and it was perfect.
It was very loud by the time we left to go into the game. We couldn’t hear each other speak.
They need to have a better access system for people who can’t manage the stairs.
Also the entrance is a long way from the parking which isn’t great on a wet day.
Would it be possible to access via the Club Gate prior to game time?

Food is typical pub fare. Crispy chicken was quite bland. Service was great. Walking through the “kitchen” to go to washroom is a bit odd. Washrooms, once successfully navigated, were nice, modern and clean.

Great evening! It’s my 2nd time there and I’ll definitely be back again. We had a selection of appetizers and drinks. Something was off with the chicken in the buffalo Cobb salad (possibly stale breading? Something just didn’t taste right) but everything else was spot on. Service is fantastic and the reservations for concert nights help for sure. See you again!

Yummy pasta! Service was quick and the server was friendly. It's a sports bar, so screens of teams playing, lighting is darker in this atmosphere. They didn't include my discount as promoted so that was disappointing!

Best chicken wings and margaritas I've ever had! Chicken wings were plump and meaty with a delicious crunchy coating and tons of choices for sauce. I had teriyaki and it was awesome! Service was excellent ~ friendly and efficient. Loved it and highly recommend!!!

We went here before the Harry Styles concert! It was very convenient to eat at a place attached to Rogers arena, plus there's an entrance to the arena through the bar! It was pretty loud music playing in the bar that made conversation difficult but in all it was great!!

Traffic was tough, the bar was great when we called that we were late. Totally accommodated the time we could arrive. Convenience of location for the Rogers Arena event cannot be beat, including the special access into the arena! Ambient noise is loud. and while adding to the concert prefunk atmosphere: sound check is disruptive. Would definitely go again.

They ahi tuna salad was fantastic. I really liked that they had the dark matter beer that I like. The happy hour came in handy for pre show at Rogers Arena. My daughter was a bit disappointed because There was very few vegan choices. It was a bit loud but mostly due to conversation. I would definitely come again for that salad and beer. My reservation wasn’t till 630 but they let us in no problem at five, I was very impressed with that.

This a great venue for dining before events.
The food is good and service is very good. The biggest problem is the noise level. Especially when you are at a bar table rather than a booth. All in all all a fun place.

I love the idea of going to þge Sports bar before an event. Unfortunately even though I had a reservation and we were there on time we had to wait about 15mins for our table. And it took quiet long to get a drink...which we then only had time for one. Next time I will try to book this earlier and make sure to have more time to enjoy it. It was a good experience other wise.
