We enjoyed a refreshing drink here after a busy day in San Francisco. The tiki bar at the rear of this bar and arcade is excellent overlooking the marina and harbour. Our waitress Olivia, was friendly and did a wonderful job.

Drinks and food was pretty good. My daughter enjoyed the arcade. Food is a little pricey but I guess that's to be expected considering the location.

We had lunch here while we were out on the pier. We had coconut shrimp and fries and they were good. Service, like most places is short staffed but she handled it well and we were were nice about it. Nice lively place to eat....We ate out on the patio with about 5 tables that was nice.More

Seems well laid out however the main server was abrupt and quite rude and we were unable to watch the soccer game we requested . But that didn’t matter to them as we had already ordered drink, no apology just continued poor service. Although I...should add the server behind the bar worked tirelessly.More

Had a wonderful dinner here and the BEST Pina Colada! But what I loved the most was the staff. Our waitress was just wonderful! I had a little trouble with what I ordered and she was right there to fix everything for me. So Friendly....We didn't go into the arcade - just the restaurant - but I was sure glad that was the place we chose. Wish I'd gotten our waitresses name - she was just so sweet!More

Since they lump the restaurant in the arcade together, I'm happy to review the arcade. Avoid this place like the plague. 40 points is equivalent to 2 US dollars. That's the cost for one child's game. I walked in, got ready to buy some tokens,...saw the price, and promptly walked out. Do not waste a penny at this place.More

We were in town for the 49ers vs Vikings game and we couldn't afford the money to go to the game itself we opted for a fun sports environment to watch the game. We arrived at Players towards the end of the 1Q. The restaurant...was packed, as we expected. We actually only had to wait a few minutes and were seated. We had many tvs from which to choose to watch the game. We stayed for most of the rest of the game and had good service, although our waiter was very soft spoken and harder to hear in the busy and noisy restaurant. We had the Nachos Gigantico with pulled chicken. It was tasty and the chili was a nice touch and YES it was a big serving for sure. We also had the Players Teriyaki Hot Wings. They didn't have a huge teriyaki taste. The fish and chips were ok but the fish was a bit soggy. We were expecting a sports bar with good food. I would say we got the atmosphere we wanted but it would have been nice to have food that tasted a wee bit better. That said, I would head into Players for another football game again.More

Too overpriced for the food they serve. Small portion size for $13 of pasta. $15 for nachos, $13 for an alcoholic drink. If you need to entertain the kids, they have games available. TVs for sports broadcasts available, that was the only plus.

After a day of sight seeing, cruise etc we fancied a casual dinner. Menu looked good and sadly we were seated right at the back out the way. Service was not brilliant but the food was tasty. Its more of a place for a quick...dinner than somewhere special.More

The food was great but the service was disappointing. The portion of the food was also VERY SMALL and expensive. The pasta was so small you can finish it with 4 to 5 scoop

The girl with the long blonde ponytail doesn’t care whether you come here or not. We walked in, and waited for a seat, she ignored us while talking to another employee. She did apologise. But then continued to ignore us. Eventually we were seated, she...left, and we weren’t sure if she was going to come back. Ordered our drinks, then she forgot about them. She apologised again. Then she eventually came back to take our ordered. She wasn’t aware of her surroundings at all and talked over our table to another employee. There are only so many times you can say sorry, before you realise she doesn’t mean it. The food was mediocre, chips were stale and tasted like they were reheated. Not really worth your money here.More

We went here to watch the Sunday NFL games. It was hard to find a sports bar in this area and this place was the best. The food was Ok but nothing special. They will give you a table with your own TV and put...YOUR game on it for you...assuming it is not on the big screen TV's. Great place for wathcing sports!More
