The menu is new and really nice. The food choices are much improved and we had a wonderful meal. The wait staff was top notch and really made us feel at home. Cold beer, excellent food and a great time was had by all. You really need to check out the new menu and food at this local establishment.

Not sure what to say about the service here. It has been all over the place. I have received very attentive service, mediocre service and a complete lack of service. The last time I was there, the bartender saw me but did not take any drink or food order and I had to go somewhere else to eat. Won't bother... More

We would have come here to see Keith Semple even if not Valentine's Day, but the V-Day special was a nice touch and GREAT value. The food was excellent. We were at Pheasant Run over the weekend and Player's food and service was FAR BETTER!

A group went here to celebrate a teammates birthday. We were able to get a table right away and the wait staff was attentive and efficient. We were served timely and the food was good and well prepared. They are very generous with the Chips or Fries. Really had a nice time and will go back again soon.

Upon entering, Player's has many of the standard sports bar calling cards. There are lots of TVs, Sports memorabilia on the walls, and electronic gambling devices. The bar has a nice look to it, and the area for eating and drinking is larger than it appears from the outside. They offer a large selection of craft beers, but domestic and... More

This bar/restaurant was right next to the Motel 6 where I stayed. it was a 2 minute, very safe, walk to get here. They offer OTB on the horses so I passed the night away drinking draft Stellas (they were on special that night) and playing the ponies. Very fun. The staff could be a little more attentive. I did...

For sure, order the Thai bowl. It had the best Thai flavor that I've ever had..... and this was a sports bar! What a surprise to find this variety and quality of food. My DH had the sweet potato tots which were outstanding. This was a first for them as we usually find only sweet potato fries. Not a fancy... More

Our motel’s desk clerk recommended the Players Pub & Grill and we are glad that we took her advice. Their menu contains the usual bar offerings, but it also contains a wide selection of eclectic meals. My Cajun Fettuccini was flavorful and full of sausage, shrimp and chicken. My wife’s French Onion Soup and Summer Salad were both very well... More
