This WAS a nice place to go to BUT I WILL NEVER GO THERE AGAIN. The troll that works there (a big short guy with tattoo's) has no customer etiquettes. He totally lost my business and I have been going here for 6 months now. From the beginning when we walked in and upon leaving, he had his "get out of my place" face on. We even greeted him on entrance but he had a disgusting look on his face like we were criminals and did not say hello or anything. I am a doctor and he works in a pool hall but he was looking at me like I was an alien. You simply don't talk to your customers the way he was. We paid in full for something that deserved money in return, that doesn't justify reason. ONLY GO HERE IF THE OWNER(S) can rectify their attitude. I am forever taking my business elsewhere.

Sam, we're very sorry you had a bad experience. We have some new folks behind the counter who clearly need to be better trained. We are in the process of retraining everyone on customer service and hope you'll give us a second chance. CBC

If your a people of COLOR.. DONT GO! You will Be discriminated from the moment you walk in. The people that shoot pool aren't an issue. There's a taller slim Caucasian man (looks a little bummy)that will hawk you down for any reason possible. Definitely won't let you enjoy yourself as a group and definitely can't laugh to loud. i went with a group of friends and he warned us that we were too loud. Then came back again not even a half an hour later to give us another warning because my friend which is a smaller lady kind of leaned her body on the table to take a shot. He came and warned us again for that.I questioned him why does he continue to bother us as paying customers, and he replied "that's it! Now your done"! We were kicked out and still had to pay because he threatened to call the police. If you don't agree with discrimination or fit any stereotype as a minority don't waste you time. You can find the same price pool hall in better locations with better treatment.

Deron, we're sorry about your bad experience, but I can assure you we are not racist and don't discriminate. Owner are minorities and take this seriously. We realize we need to do a much better job of training the guys behind the counter and are retaining all on customer service. Our goal is too make sure everyone has a good time at CBC, but sometimes we get a bit too overzealous in protecting our beautiful tables. We will be better next time for sure. CBC

Great clean and neat place to have fun. They have specials every night of the week for food items. Nice and clean tables that were just re-felted. Reasonable prices too. 9 ball tournaments on Thursday. Double elimination style winners bracket- race to 4 and losers bracket race to three. $10 entry fee. Very good way to meet new people and have fun while getting up your skill level. Definitely recommended place.
