Welcome to the Robbies Billiards & Game Room Outfitters online store. We created this site to help our customers educate themselves about recreational purchases big and small. Since 1954 Robbies Billiards has provided local Maryland and Virginia customers with expert advice, professional service, and unparalleled value on everything to do with home entertainment. We continue the Robbies legacy with a new generation of buyers by trying to provide the best possible ecommerce web site backed by local showrooms and service. We know you prefer to buy local and support small family business, so we make it easy! Robbies Billiards is hands down the best value when you combine Robbies Billiards Premium Brands, Exclusive Lifetime Warranty, and service after the sale.

As you spend time surfing this site and others remember the golden rule of game room purchases: You get what you pay for. Anyone who claims a $1,500 pool table is going to play like a $5,000 pool table is lying to you, period. A $100 bar stool is never going to sit or hold up like a $500 stool. A $50 import pool cue is not going to shoot like a $500 domestic cue stick. If you want to know the real "skinny" on product quality and value, start by reading the Robbies Blog, talk to friends, or visit a showroom and talk to a real expert. There is nothing wrong with buying "economy" game room products, but really educate yourself and know what you are buying in advance!

A brief history of Robbies Billiards

Robbie Poffenberger founded Robbies Billiards in Washington County Maryland 1954. Robbie was a master cabinetmaker who started building “custom” tables for local clients out of a small shop in Leitersburg Maryland. In 1964 Robbie started selling Brunswick Pool Tables out of a 500 square foot showroom in Leitersburg Maryland next to his carpentry shop. As a small dealer, "Robbies Billiards Sales & Service" specialized in economically priced pool tables and Made in the USA Pool cues from companies like McDermott and Viking. During the Billiards Boom of the 1980's Robbies Billiards stayed the course with a focus on value, service after the sale, and "Custom pool tables" built by hand in Robbie's workshop.

After 30 years in the business Robbie Poffenberger retired and sold out to his long time employee and lead installer Dennis Strock. In 1994 Denny sold the business over to his old high school friend and billiard enthusiast Al McGarity. Denny Stayed on for almost 10 years as the lead installation technician and helped train the current crop of Robbies Master Certified Installation Technicians. The 2nd generation of McGarity Family Members now owns and operates Robbies Billiards & Game Room Outfitters showrooms and the award winning online store.

For over 20 years the Robbie Poffenburger reputation for quality and customer loyalty has continues to define Robbies Billiards.
