You absolutely must be under40. Many of their specialty items were fair at best. The cheese fondue had no flavor. The steaks were good but small.
On a positive note, the speciality drinks were great!

Food was great.
Service was slow, took 20 min to take drink orders then another 20 to take food orders. Got handed off between 3 servers.

I booked a reservation for my birthday, and because it wasn’t busy they allowed me to choose where to sit! Our service was great and our brunch was delicious. There are outdoor games to play, which are really fun. I had a great experience and would recommend to my friends!

Reserved a table for 7:30, got sat at 7:50 after two or three walk-ins. Ordered bread that came after the entree along with a complimentary dessert to apologize. Service was adequate, food was adequate, drinks were awful and ambiance was typical for a loud restaurant in Tempe. Based on cost and quality of food alone, I will not go back.

Great food and great service. The food has character and was not the typical menu. Drinks were good too. Great set up with games if you are there to hang for a bit.

We came to the restaurant to celebrate the engagement of my daughter with her fiancé and his family. The food was great and the best part was our server Joel. He made the evening so special for our families by providing us with the best service and small little add one like champagne and desert for the engaged couple. Joel was attentive and provided us with a kind good humored spirit. Thank you Joel.

Excellent service, enjoy the ease of booking a reservation online about an hour before we were going. We showed up with three and additional in our party and were very easily accommodated in a super friendly manner. I’ve never had a bad experience at your place

Great place to come with a large group or for a date night! I highly recommend you make a reservation as it is always busy no matter what day it is. The pretzels and cheese are the best item on the menu. You could easily make a meal of them paired with a few drinks. The service is always on point and the staff go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. The only thing that some people may not prefer is the noise level as it can get pretty loud. For us, 5 stars and we will be back.

We had an amazing meal and then really enjoyed a few games of shuffleboard in the yard. This is a great concept and works well for all ages. The live music was and added bonus and we will definitely be back soon.

This was our second trip to the culinary dropout out and it was not nearly as good as the first visit. This visit we had reservations and showed up 15 minutes early and they told us we would be seated closer to our reservation time and would text us when our table was ready. We didn’t mind we waited outside but by 30 minutes later we were 15 past our reservation and still no table. Went to the host and we had been staring at our empty table the entire time we waited. The server we had was completely inattentive and forgot half the things we asked for and brought me the wrong drink which was not good but I never had the chance to tell him because I didn’t see him again until the check came. Food was good but came out very slowly. I would like to come back in the hopes this was a fluke but the service really ruined my birthday dinner and went home sticky from a drink being spilled by one of the food runners.

We were a party of 11 on a busy Saturday night. It did take a while to get drinks, but it’s understandable with the party size and the busy evening. Food was great, and they were very accommodating. Thank you!

Restaurant is warehouse large. Very loud with music and surrounding game activities. Seems designed for college crowd so would not recommend for diners who want ambiance and conversation. Food average.
