I ate here a couple times before going to the United Center to watch the Hawks play. The food is pretty good and the drink prices aren't too bad. All in all the service wasn't bad they were just very busy both times that I went. Its a pretty good place to watch a sporting event as well.

we've actually gone there 3 times... never again! Strike 3 you're out! Every time we get the worst service. No wonder the place is empty and keeps going out of business.

i received horrible service so i left a very small tip. good thing i checked my credit card statement this month! the damn waitress tried to give herself a $40 tip and didn't expect me to catch it!

We never even made it an issue at the restaurant. We were going to let the tip speak for itself.

Pros: decent food, many TVs

Cons: extremely poor service, they steal!

It's a pet peeve, and a nerdy one at that, but when you've got a bar covered in HD televisions, wouldn't it make sense to train your staff how to get to the HD channel? This is my neighborhood sports bar, and often times I end up miles away watching the Bears on a Sunday or the Bulls on a weeknight because the bartender doesn't have the HD channel on, claims they don't get it, or tells me "it's the tv. That's an older one."

They've made huge strides with the quality of service since it was Player's, but somebody needs to take the five minutes to train the bar staff on televisions. It's why the place is there, after all.

Pros: Ping pong, decent bar food, always room.

Cons: Standard. Definition. Sports. Also, can be rather douche-y.

I went there to celebrate a friend's birthday. The open-bar drink special wasn't worth it because it did not include top self or shots, so I declined. The bartenders were rude but we ordered the $9 drinks anyway. The drinks turned out to be horrible, way too much ice in the small 8oz glass for a mixed drink. While we were sitting at the bar the bartender splashed beer from the tap into my eyes and all over our clothes. Instead of giving us napkins to clean up he passes us the rag which they use to clean the bar area, and had an attitude when I asked for napkins. Overall, this place was horrible; everything from parking, the service, to the drinks, the crowd, and the TV's.

This was the first time I went to this place and since I just moved into the neighborhood I was looking forward to it. I guess my hopes were too high because I left greatly disappointed in the service or actually lack of. The manager stated the short staffing was due to four people quitting two days ago which after reading these reviews, I doubt I believe. They have had poor service reviews for the past two years. Players if you are reading this, GET IT TOGETHER! We want to make your place our regular place but unless the service gets better we are going to go over to DeLux instead.

I give Player's an average rating. It's a nice-looking place for sure. I go to play pool. Bar pool table in great shape and plenty of room around it. I've never sat down to eat so I can't comment on the service... I DID have calimari one time while playing pool and it pretty much sucked. The girls that work there are pretty good looking but not friendly. You can feel the attitudes. I agree w/ someone else above who said that they don't feel welcome there.

My boyfriend and his friends and my girlfriens and I we all love to watch the games (Go White Sox! for me and Red Sox for my girlfriend). And I can't think of any other place then Players to do so - if there is a sport and it's on TV they have it. So many screans, so many different games. The weekly specials are awsom. Food is great. Service is friendly. Maybe you all (the bad review people) should give the place another chance.

Cons: none

I went here after work one day, the crowd was very friendly. It's social neighborhood bar but more upscale then your local watering hole. I went back the other night cuz their food menu looked real good, and a game was on- this place kicks butt for watching the Bulls!

I think it's a great place to watch any game. Friendly staff and tasty food. It is a bit pricey for a sports bar, but the burger patties are fresh made daily and only a few frozen-fried items on the menu. Also, servings are huge. So yes, you may pay 8-9$ for a burger, but it's the juciest and the biggest burger you've had. Beer pitchers are 9-12$. I think it is all well worth it, when you are surrounded by plazmas, and the bigscreen is probably 3rd best in chicago.

i dont know about the old reviews, but maybe some things have changed. i wanted to watch a rugby game and i was the only one there wanting to see it, and it was no problem. the cubs were playing on all the other tvs. i was asked if i wanted a refill on my beer frequently and the staff was friendly the whole time. worth chekcing out and giving it another try if it missed for you the first time.

I live near this place and I have tried to like it but I just cannot bring my self to see anything of value. The food is ridiculously expensive and sucks. People that work there I use the word work there lightly dont smile. They have to be going out of business since I have never seen anyone in the bar on a Friday or Saturday night. I hope that the new place has better management.

Personally I love this place. The wait staff is very friendly and always ready with another round of beers and quick to get the food to the table. Plenty of screens so you can see just about any game they are showing. The food is very good, if a bit pricey and management is very nice and accomodating. They recently reserved their back room for myself and about 25 friends to watch Hopkins v. Taylor II and gave us our own bartender...no room rental fee or anything. Parking in the area is also very good. Overall, I think this is a great place!

I looked forward to this place opening in my neighborhood. And I am very disappointed with the food and the atmosphere. The bartender ignored me to talk to her model girlfriends and euro trash boyfriends. The menu is very odd and food took over 45 minutes to arrive cold! I dont feel welcome at this place.

The owners have no interest in their customers. We have been coming to Players since they first opened and last night we were told no reservations for the sox game. When showed up at 5:30 and they made my party wait all night for a table when 4 booths were empty reserved the owners friends. Those tables showed up well after the game started. That suggests to me that the owners and their friends have no interest in customers that are true sports fans. Where I am from the customer is always first. I guess that is not the case at Players Bar and grill.

So they changed their name from Players to Mahoney's. Still didn't change the staff. 0 stars if I could.

Poor service, I could have gone to the store and bought my beer before I got even a look from the bartender. I guess her text-messages were more important. I met the manager on a seperate ocaision and he said he was staffing w/ people that had worked for him before. Honestly they all must have been fired for lack of work ethic if this was the best he could put together. Go anywhere instead.

What starts out as casual Saturday brunch with some friends easily turns into a raging Irish dance party at this River West hangout. Mornings at Mahoney's are casual--a scrambled egg here, a bloody mary there. By…
