The expression “behind the eight ball” can apply to many of life's obstacles, from facing a traffic-court judge to accidentally baking your car keys into a pie. Sink problems into the corner pocket with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two hours of pool plus $20 worth of eats and drinks at Surf City Billiards & Café (up to a $44 value), which Billiards Digest named as one of the Top 10 New Pool Halls in America in 2008. This deal is not good during happy hour, which runs from 4 p.m.–7 p.m.

Enjoy two full hours of pool inside this award-winning hall, which contains 15 professional-grade tables (up to a $12 per hour value). Settle long-standing scores and brand-new sibling rivalries over as many games as you can fit into two standard Earth hours. In addition to pool tables, four tournament dartboards and a 21-foot-long shuffleboard table ($6 per hour) can occupy idle arms as they wait to wrangle some homemade eats from the full kitchen, such as buffalo chicken wings ($6.99). The all-American tastes of classic cheeseburgers ($6.99) and sweet potato fries ($3.99) are intensified with the brilliant glow of eight big-screen TVs. Behind the bar, sentient mugs fill themselves with good-time-giving brews such as Guinness ($6) and Blue Moon ($5), or sippable local wines. Check the wine board for daily selections before committing them to memory so they can one day be recited back to your children's children.


Yelpers give Surf City Billiards a four-star average:

  • Surf City, you never cease to please me... – Bryan N.
  • Surf city rocks. Its super nice inside with a ton of top quality full size pool tables, shuffle board, and free darts. The food they have is AMAZING – Samuel J.

Surf City Billiards & Cafe

In the main room of Surf City Billiards & Cafe, sun pours through skylights in the 22-foot vaulted ceilings, illuminated 15 Brunswick Gold Crown tables covered in pro-standard Simonis cloth. Darts and a shuffleboard table provide additional opportunities for competition, whereas eight big-screen TVs let fans cheer for their favorite commercials between interruptions by men throwing balls. The hall's full bar keeps spirits high with local wine and beer, and a bustling kitchen turns out gourmet takes on traditional bar food. Applewood-smoked bacon gives third-pound Angus-beef patties a porcine kick, and the Surf City dog adorns a quarter-pound 100% beef frank with zesty chipotle mayo.

The billiards hall was named one of the Top 10 New Pool Halls in America in 2008.

My old pool hall, good food and the best tables (in Santa Cruz).
Jahnava D. · September 2, 2016
Great service and such friendly staff! The food is pretty amazing too considering you're in a pool hall. Go early and avoid the wait for a pool table.

It's a great place and food is very yummy! We had a burger and fries and it was delicious. The atmosphere is nice and besides pool tables they also have ping pong and beer pong once a week. Plus, the Groupon discount is really good. Recommend it!
