You call yourself a sports bar??!?.
I just moved here and was looking for a sports bar to watch the Giants game because they are in a race for the pennant right now. A friend and I decided to try EGSB.
The food was good and reasonably priced. The bartenders were great!
We had parked ourselves in front of a TV at the bar to watch the game, and during the 8th inning, one of the employees tried to change our station even though it was obvious we were watching the game. He finally noticed and put it right back. There weren't many people there, and there are many TVs available to change. Why he chose ours? I have no idea.
That would not have been that big of a deal, except then the same employee went up to the stage and started playing with the sound system, playing music over the main speakers so we could not longer hear the game. After a few minutes, this became annoying because the only reason we went there was for the game.
He then shut it off, but continued to play with the sound system. So throughout the rest of the game mostly what we heard were short bursts of music followed by the screeching feedback from the sound system. It was a bit like trying to watch the game with my nine-year-old sitting next to me practicing her saxophone.
When I commented that the game would be over in about ten minutes, he mumbled something and walked away.
Feeling a little superfluous, we left immediately after the game was over and decided between ourselves the name of the bar should be changed to Elk Grove Dance Bar and Grill...with some TVs. Obviously, sports is not their priority. I'll pass next time.
By the way, we stopped for a drink on the way home at another bar down the street where, incredibly, the drinks were half the price. Score!
Fun Night Out with Music.
My wife and I went there for the first time and had a good time. Decent beer selection for beer fans like me and full bar drinks selection. Band was good and we found everyone friendly. It was a fun, safe place- no obnoxious drunks, or problems of any kind. Everyone just dancing, talking, drinking, eating and having fun. We didn't try the food, but will next time.
There is a New and Improved owner at the sports bar. They have made some changes and you can see it in those who work there. The food is good as far as a bar goes and the drinks are great, made and priced right. A huge feature is the Kuhl Kareoke on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights. Nina really liven things up and gets into the songs. Once in a while you will find her on the table and or the bar!
Friday and Saturdays are great for live bands and if you like what you hear let the bartenders know so you can hear them again...
Remember that with a new owner there will be a new look, this from an insider that knows what they are talking about!
Casual and fun local place.
Let's face it, this is a sports bar not an upscale restaurant or nightclub. It gets a little loud and the dance floor is small but you can still have fun. It's a small town bar but the people were not rude or strange, the waitress did a good job and the bands that play there are pretty good. I've been there on a Friday & Saturday night and there weren't any fights on either of those nights. I didn't eat there but the drinks are reasonable. It's as fun as you make it!
