Awful customer service – We have had two fund raisers at Rookies. Last year they refused to provide mayonaise for the chicken sandwiches. This year, even though our tickets indicated a choice between a hamburger or chicken sandwich, they refused to serve the chicken sandwiches. The hamburger came with no condiments and the chips were awful, I could not eat them. The manager was rude. We will never have a fund raiser there again!
Rude Employees – I went to Rookies for my first time ever. I was told that it's not a busy place at all so I was looking for a low key night. When I got there, there was a band which was excellent. We were playing games with friends when out of nowhere a manager who claims to be the owner starts a fight with us for no apparent reason. Considering that our group is not fighters we were shocked and we will let everyone know about our horrible experience.
Rookie's is not that great – Rookies "sport bar" is not really a sports bar. Just putting up a tv or two, a couple of video games doesn't make a sports bar.
The drinks are spendy, even in Rochester, quality is poor, the bands are ok, but the acoustics in Rookies are more cave-like than anything else. Too much concrete and steel makes for a very loud bar. Don't even bother trying to have a conversation...you can't yell loud enough.
