Snookered Billiards and Bar Offers Food, Fun and Entertainment
Whether showcasing pool shark skills in a live-streaming tournament or looking for a new date night spot with delicious food and beverages, Snookered Billiards and Bar is the place to be. As a 7,000-square-foot restaurant, bar and pool hall that’s smoke/vape-free, Snookered also provides a beautiful indoor and outdoor patio. A local husband and wife team—Craig and Jana Lucas—made their dream of owning a quality pool hall a reality when they opened Snookered in Frisco. They say they included their passion for the game of pool, wine and fine dining selections into their business model.
1. Crafty, Tapas-Style Food
Customers can expect a five-star experience once they walk through the doors of Snookered, Craig and Jana promise. The restaurant side has seating that includes 20 large HD TVs from which to watch various sporting events and live stream pool tournaments from around the globe. The restaurant’s menu consists of a selection of made-from-scratch items, ranging from small bites such as a charcuterie board, chicken and havarti quesadillas, and freshly made salads to larger plates including a char-grilled ribeye filet, shrimp sliders and margherita flatbread.
They also have a kids menu and desserts.
Craig says his favorite menu item is their smoked wings, which are smoked before being grilled; then each patron gets their choice of sauce. Jana says her favorite is the ribeye cap sliders, which consists of prime beef ribeye, crispy maple-glazed bacon, chimichurri sauce and avocado cream served on Empire Bakery buns.
2. Tournaments Galore
If competing is a passion, enthusiasts can try out the other side of the establishment: the state-of-the-art pool hall. This area showcases a dozen pool tables ready for play, plus two custom 9-foot Gold Crown tables. Snookered teams host tournaments each week that include both eight-ball and nine-ball. There are opportunities for junior players to participate in leagues as well as elite members.
The Lucases say they’ve arranged a group discount with neighboring Comfort Suites for pool players associated with their location.

3. Pool Tips from Craig and Jana
Their best pool tip for to newcomers to billiards is when hitting each shot, be sure to watch the speed.
Each shot in pool can be used to help set up the next shot.
When playing regulation pool, Craig says he prefers to be stripes over solids because he feels that it allows him to line up each shot easier.
If Snookered Billiards and Bar team members are holding a major tournament (not a weekly tournament), they will allow junior players to play those events so long as it is allowed by the tournament director.
