Diner Reviews
  • "Had a group from out of town, and thought this place reflected a Portlandia-ish vibe perfectly. Plus the food is great! And my drink was never empty, great service!"

  • "We tried Punch Bowl Social for the first time and like the interesting mix of food. We had two kids (14/12) and there was something for everyone. What's weird is that the place was kind of a ghost town. In the mall can't be cheap, so unless it's gets way crowded later (we were there at 7) I don't know how they survive. We didn't do the games and stuff, just food. But I want to go back for the whole experience. I liked the place and hope they do well!"

  • "The food was great. The bar service was alright. I guess really just the one bartender was a bit unconcerned with attending to patrons. But the rest of the staff was really considerate and attentive. didn't play any games. just focused on drinks and food. Its a little spendy honestly, but the food quality was worth it in my opinion. the drinks - stick to happy hour specials."

  • "Portland nightclub meets a "Dave and Busters" style venue... The food was kind of fusion style with out a focus on any one region. The drinks were strong and exotic. The ambience was dark and crowded. Going from restaraunt to the entertainment was confusing and difficult. The bowling was fun despite the lanes being short and packed. All in all it was an interesting experience. It does seem more suited to patrons who like to be in the crowd and are willing to sacrifice breathing space for a bit of convenience."

  • "Three bars, bowling, video games, darts - an energetic location!"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Small menu. The deviled eggs and cheesecake were good. We were served salmon not completely cooked that we sent back to the kitchen. Very loud place! Hard to find how to get in pioneer place at night since there is no sign indicating which one entrance was left open. Friendly waiter."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We asked for a booth or quiet table, and definitely got the booth. Unfortunately, the booth was right below a speaker so we heard music blaring the whole time we were there. The food was ok. Not really our kind of place."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Limited and poor selection on their menu. We ended up walking out of the restaurant after being shuffled around no less than 6 times. Thought it would be a fun evening but ended up disappointed. No cohesiveness with staff and management."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "It was really good how the waitress kept checking back in with us through our dining experience. Also someone who wasn't even our waiter took our picture for us!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We found it to be welcoming. The food was good and they offer so many different things to keep you busy from shuffle board to games you can check out and play. We will definitely go back for a group outing."

  • "I just found this place ad I'm so glad I did! I came with a group of 16 girls for a bachelorette party and they didn't have any problem fitting us all in. They even accommodated my special request to be all in one group and a special lounge area. The service was pretty slow and a couple members of our party did not actually get a couple things they ordered, but I realize we were a big group and they seemed pretty busy. I expect a little better service next time hopefully. There was a really good DJ and they were nice to accommodate our request to turn the music down a little bit so that we could all talk more. I will definitely be going back to try out some of their other activities, like bowling, ping-pong, where the karaoke room!"

  • "I put in a reservation online. This was my first time ever going here. Someone had suggested this place. I had gotten a table in the dinning area since everything else was booked. My party did not seem to mind the change and we all stayed late enough to use the karaoke area as we had planned. There is plenty to do here and staff is very friendly. My husband and I may go back alone for a date."

  • "We were a group of 24 colleagues on a busy Friday afternoon. Our table was ready well before everyone arrived. There is a nice selection of happy hour drinks and upscale bar and grill type appetizers. The staff was very accommodating to special dietary requests/needs. The service was responsive and attentive. The lead server, Crystal was fantastic! She had a great attitude and was extremely service-oriented. We are a friendly, but sometimes needy group, and Crystal was unphased and stayed positive and helpful the 4+ hours we were there. This is a great place for a fun evening out with a large group of people!"

  • "My hubby and I have kids and we rarely get a date night. We almost chose romantic over fun but we went for fun. We were super bummed to find that when we got there approx. 8pm we could not play any of the games on account of so many private parties that night, so we just ate and left. I wish there would have been some foreknowledge to the fact we could not play any of our favorite games prior to coming is all. We would've have still come, just at a different time / night. It ended up feeling like a wasted evening for us.... :("

  • "I went in for my Birthday. Had a reservation at 6:30 and was told I could put my name in and would have no problem getting a few lanes for bowling. This was NOT the case. Not only did they have corporate events booking over half the place but they bumped my already delayed reservation from 8:30 to 9:30. I pitched a fit and got on at 9pm but I had been there since 6:30! Half my birthday party guests left because they didn't want to wait and they couldn't even go drink or play other games because of all the "private events""

  • "LOVED the drink selections! Menu was adventurous, but not intimidating. Come as you are or dress up - you'll fit right in either way. Great for a drink with a friend, a first date, or meeting a group."

  • "Service is super slow but the staff is friendly. Ordered a burger and asked for it to be cooked well done. When it arrived, it was pink and I sent it back. It came back just a few minutes later and had clearly been thrown in the microwave. The veggies and the bread were way overcooked and just not good. We had to ask to have a new burger brought out and they did bring a new one but, by that time, everyone else at my table had finished eating. All in all, it was fine but I probably wouldn't go back. Drinks were so-so and food was okay."

  • "I have been to Punch Bowl for lunch, dinner, and bowling and I have been left unsatisfied each time. This place has great ambiance and views of downtown, but the food is terrible. The choices are very limited and are just weird entrees. Also, the bowling lanes are very cramped so my boyfriend and I had to share the 4 feet of common space with a group of 8 people in the lane next to us. The best part about this place is the service. Our server in the diner and our server in the bowling lane really stood out to us. We will probably go back just because of the service, but only if I can find a daily deal again."

  • "good spot for our group to get together for dinner and activities"

  • "I made reservations to celebrate our sons 18th Birthday @ PBS. When they called to confirm, I asked about bowling/karaoke reservations and was told it is first come, but at 6:00 the wait shouldn't be too long. We arrived at 6, to find that half the place, including all the karaoke was closing for a private party at 7:00. Bowling was a min 2 hour wait. (I got a text that our lane was available at 8:25) We ordered appetizers, drinks and entrees and our table was cleaned off by 7:15. We felt rushed to leave since the place was packed to watch the OSU game. We could have gone out for a nice dinner anywhere, but wanted a fun, cool place for an 18th birthday dinner. I felt bad that I planned a night out and we couldn't do anything."

  • "I love the design, very modern, unique and clean. Ambience so cool and romantic at the same time. Food is great and has a unique taste to it. Place is really perfect for hang out. And lastly staff were nice specially our server Travis. Will surely come back."

  • "For a bar which brags about alcoholic drinks in it's name....their drink menu is odd, small, and just not very appealing. Service was extremely slow and staffed by people clearly working their first service job."
    Dined on 10/5/2013
  • "Overall a good dining experience. The place was new and not very busy, granted it was an early dinner. The food was very good and I would definitely return!"
