The pool table at Blackbeards Lodge has been around for awhile. Have you played pool at Blackbeards? If so, who did you play and who won?

I never played pool, I spent my time with the video games

No but I ate the best fried flounder there when it was the restaurant 😉

It has been a bit, but I have played on that table many times.

My girls found out their mother’s a pool shark at that table!😄

Played a bunch this summer. Kids loved it.

My husband did growing up not sure he played with but I’m pretty sure cousins

I played my husband, and he won! This was also the first pool table my youngest daughter ever played on!

Yep sure have, glad you kept it!

Spent a very fun, rainy, Easter weekend in that game room many years ago. Several beers and rolls of quarters later I honestly don’t remember who won 😂

If it was there in June 1993 then I surely played my girlfriend Jeanette. We stayed in room “J”, I do remember that for sure.

Pl aced that table many many times with whoever would play with me!! Hell I even payed!!!

Yes, always my son who wins.

My kids played for what it was worth in experience alone. They had never played before. They have an eleven year age difference so it was nice as something they could do together.

Yup, with my wife on one of our getaways

I’ve NEVER seen this pool table in my life Barbara Martin lol 😂

Many times.
