There was excellent service while we were there - no shortage of servers there. The food was incredible as well. I had the cheeseburger, miso corn and peanut butter pie - all I’d recommend. I watched the ufc fight there and great venue to do so at.

Only knock is it’s a little on the pricier side, so I wouldn’t be inclined to go here too frequently.

Overall, great experience and I will return.

My friends and I attended last Saturday to watch the UFC. At first the staff had a tough time showing the prelims. During the main card we missed a lot cause music was turned on way too often would have been nice to hear most of the UFC and less of the music actually no music at all. The waitress didn’t bring us any napkins after taking our wiping cloth away earlier. Cause we ordered food more then once. I think for an event like the UFC you need to turn up the volume the sound was way too low we actually asked to increase the volume but it was barely turned up. Please no music in between it ruins the whole PPV. We like the food and service was fair but if were gonna watch more UFC events you must refrain from playing music increase the sound level and show the prelims right from the start.

I really enjoy the sportsbar and will be back. Great atmosphere and friendly people. Unfortunately on this particular visit, the fries arrived cold and hard (they did provide fresher ones later). Also in the third period of the Russia/us game suddenly all the TVs showing it switched to some sports talk show (with no sound). Had to ask 4 times to switch it back and by then the game was almost over :-(.

We always enjoy the Sports Bar and this was no exception. We brought friends from England and Denmark to enjoy dinner before the Canucks game. This was our friend from Denmark first NHL hockey game so was a very special occasion.

This is a great pre-game spot as you're already at the arena; busy on a Saturday night but not overwhelming. Typical bar food, but with a few healthier options. Great drink menu and friendly staff.

I enjoyed the ambiance, loud, boisterous filled with people partying. I was getting geared up for the Habs game and based on all the sweaters there were as many Habs fans as there were Canuck fans. The beer was good I enjoyed all the activity. I was my birthday gift and this was a great memorable present.

Aside from the convenience of being onsite at Rogers Arena for Canucks games and other events, having a good number of large screen TVs for live sports, and a decent selection of beer on tap, I really can't think of any redeeming qualities for this venue worth mentioning. We ordered chicken wings where multiple pieces had hair in it, the Prime Rib (which is a celebrated arena specialty also available in a shaved sandwich at Carve concession stands) and the tenderloin were both overcooked to our preference - no excuse at $38 & $42 respectively. We didn't have time to wait for a re-fire but both items remained on the bill with no discount offered. During the course of the meal we were interrupted 3 times by the same hostess who asked if we had a reservation (answer is yes but couldn't she have checked in the system instead of having to ask) then again if we're almost finished our meal (no respectable eatery should ever disturb their guests while dining in this manner). If there was a seating time limit we should have been informed at reservation or prior to being seated. On her grand finale visit she actually made us get up from our seats so she could move our table to make room for a larger party. The Sportsbar is nowhere near a worthy replacement to the Center-Ice Grille where you used to be able to get a good meal with decent service. So if you should go there on game nights do expect organized chaos, but with no game-day specials and the abundance of alternatives nearby you're much better off dining/drinking somewhere else to avoid disappointment.

This was the second time I have eaten there before a Canucks game. The first time we parked underneath Rogers Arena. This time we were told, by the parking attendant, that guests of the Sportsbar were no longer permitted to park under Rogers Arena prior to hockey game without a permit. There was no mention of this change on the web site for the restaurant. Also, and I know its before a hockey game, but they jammed way too many people into the space. Frankly I think it was beyond fire code that night. We had a table, which are already packed in there tightly. Then there were dozens and dozens of people standing around as well. It difficult to even move. The food was good and the TV's are great. Service was ok but a little slow. I think the volume of people was the problem. When servers cant get through the crowds to place orders, and pick up drinks and food, its going to slow everything down. Also when I asked what time the doors to Rogers Arena opened so that we could get to our seats the server said she had no idea. Strange answer based on the venue? Not trying to be negative because the food and drinks were good and the environment is great. Just some tweaks needed I think.
