COLUMBIA CITY – Rookies Sports Bar and Grill – the Rainier Valley’s new, much-anticipated family friendly sports bar – has finally opened in the Ferdinand St. space that was once home to Kallaloo Caribbean.
“We encourage families to come and enjoy their favorite sports on one of our big screens, come after games they’ve attended and definitely games they’ve played,” said Heather Allard, who owns the restaurant with her husband Sam. “We’d like to see local teams gather to celebrate a win, bicyclists begin and end their bike runs here, and so on. And of course sports enthusiasts of all ages!”
The menu features new and traditional American fare such as burgers, steaks, sandwiches, soups, salads, field roast and more, including a kid’s menu.
The restaurant was designed using reclaimed sports materials, including a high school gym floor, bowling alley slabs and even old aluminum baseball bats.
Rookies is located at 3820 S. Ferdinand St. in Columbia City.
