about us

Rookies Sports Bar is no corporate chain. We're a locally-owned rock and roll sports bar with Midwestern charm located in Columbia City. Here's the low-down about us: we're just a bunch of sports fanatics crazy about dishing up locally-sourced grub and pouring you a cold brewski. And yes, the rumors are true: we're not kid-tolerant; we're kid-friendly. So grab your kids, grab your wife, bring the whole posse down and enjoy sports the Rookies way.

delicous food

We firmly believe that local tastes better. That's why we've made it a point to make our food with locally produced ingredients. Our hamburger buns and pretzels come fresh from the Columbia City Bakery every day. Our juicy, half-pound Choice Angus Beef burger patties are delivered daily from Portland, Oregon, and our produce and other meats are grown right here in Washington State. Rookies' soups and desserts are all handcrafted by our chefs in-house so they taste just like Grandma used to make. And all those delicious sauces that come atop our waffle fries (that's right: waffle fries!) or accompany those mouth-watering, hand-battered fish tacos? All made in-house, especially for you.

And to all you vegetarians, don't' worry, we certainly didn't forget about you: We make our own veggie patty called the Hoppin John Burger. Substitute it on any one of our sandwiches or burgers for no extra charge.

great drinks, awesome happy hour

Here's our take on drinks at Rookies: if you can think it, we can make it. With our full bar and unflappable bartenders, we're well-equipped to whip up whatever drink you might be craving. Really. Try us. We like a challenge.

If quality brewskis are more up your alley, we've got you covered, too. Sure, we have your basic mountains-are-blue cold Coors Lights, Stella Artoises, and Heinekens, but we also feature six (one rotating) beers on tap from local craft breweries like the Georgetown Brewing Co., Black Raven Brewing Co., Two Beers Brewing Co., and Spinnaker Bay Brewng.

Happy hour runs Monday to Friday from 4 PM – 6PM and 9 PM to midnight and ALL DAY WEDNESDAY. Here's what that means:

» $2.50 tall boys of Rainier and PBR
» $4 House red wine and house white wine
» $1 off draft beers
» $4.50 wells
» Happy Hour Snacks!

Did we mention that we also do $5 bloody mary's and mimosas all day, every day? That way, you can at least pretend that happy hour never ends…


When we call ourselves a "sports bar," we're not messing around. That's why we've made it a point to offer most sports packages and channels that Direct TV has to offer including the NFL Sunday Ticket, NHL Center Ice, MLB Extra Innings, and many other specialty sports channels. Even if you're in the mood to catch a rugby match or a snowboarding competition, don't worry, we've got you covered, too. Here's the even better news: we rock 14 flat screen TVs, including a mondo 70-incher and even a little guy right above the men's urinal so you'll never have a bad seat and never have to miss a second of the game. Have a game you want to see that isn't up on one of the screens? We play games based on a first come, first served basis so just ask and we'll get our game faces on and throw it on. Immediately.


More than anything else, we at Rookies pride ourselves on providing good service. But for us, that means more than just delivering your food and pouring your drinks. We're easy-going, real (quirky) people who want you to feel comfortable, like you're watching the game at a good friend's house – the kind of character-filled friend who is inclined to occasionally croon to the sweet jams of Journey or Marvin Gaye or may spontaneously bust a move or two when the music calls, all the while bringing you delicious food and drinks to enjoy. (Sometimes the music speaks to us. It can't be helped.)

Know that when you come to Rookies, you'll be taken care of. So just sit, chat, laugh, relax, and cheer your favorite team on with your buddies.

It's the Rookies way: you bring the company, we'll do the rest.
