  • Rating: 4.0 out of 5"Jul 07, 2014 · by Yachna P. from YelpThis is BY FAR my favorite bar in San Jose since 2007. I've had many birthday celebrations and after-work outings. The South First Billiards is the place to relax and listen to some of the best DJs around! Full review
  • Rating: 2.0 out of 5"Jul 03, 2014 · by Jen B. from YelpI probably wouldn't rate this place so low if it wasn't for my Groupon experience. We tried three times before they let us use our Groupon.

  • Rating: 1.0 out of 5"Jun 07, 2014 · by Anna P. from YelpThis review is strictly for the bar. Worst bar service! Every time I've gone, they are either under staffed or simply lazy.Even witnessed customers next to me bitch and complain about the wait, then finally leaving. I've finally learned my lesson and won't be back. Full review
  • Rating: 2.0 out of 5"May 11, 2014 · by Mariano L. from YelpUsed to be an awesome place. Could come and chill. Ben, the owner (not sure if he is still) was always chill. Been hitting this place a long time, but little by little the place goes downhill. I've suffered through slow service and lack of alcohol before but most nights, they try to take care of their people. Tonight … Full review

  • Rating: 2.0 out of 5"Mar 26, 2014 · by Brandon C. from YelpWhether it's on a weekday night or a weekend night, this place always seems like a ghost town.Which is nice, if you want the whole place to yourself.I must admit this is a pretty cool spot.It looks like a warehouse converted to a trendy pool hall, and it's got nice modern touches.This is a decent spot to … Full review
