I never would have expected to find fine dining in a pool hall but there it was. Some friends who did know brought me here and I'm glad they did. Very thoughtful micro-environment themed tasting menus with wine pairings. Ours was themed "Ocean" with five...More

We visited on recommendation from Nick at Saucebox and were not disappointed! Loved the atmosphere, the drinks, and the pool tables. Great service too.

We went here for a company party. They rented the whole place out and we had a great time playing pool, playing blackjack, having drinks, eating the buffet and socializing. I really liked the layout and the atmosphere of the place and would go again!

This is a great place for billiards, with an upscale ambiance for billiards and a fine restaurant and bar. The only thing I would like better would be to see is more vegetarian options on the menu. The bartenders and servers are always friendly and...More

This visit was for our company holiday party. When the location was announced, the idea of going to a "pool hall" did not appeal to me. As it turned out this place is magnificent. Great ambiance. Great food. Pool tables, ping pong tables, dart boards....More

Description
Uptown Billiards strives to balance "great fun" with "great service" in a wonderful and fun atmosphere. We are famous for our gourmet 5-course tasting menus in the dining room, but our burgers and pizzas and salads are just as loved. With a 22' long antique bar stocked with everything you can dream of, from local liquors and ten beers on tap to a wine preservation system that allows us to pour phenomenal wines by the glass.
