Expected more people and a friendlier bar tender. Advertised "band" but it was one person playing guitar over a sound machine

Gametime looked beautiful for the Christmas season and we've eaten there before with no issues. This was really for the kids, but the meal ruined a lot of it. Their brunch was horrible. Literally the worst brunch meal I've eaten. The home fries were cold, my poached eggs (eggs benedict) were completely cooked through. My husband had similar issues, received toast, but not buttered or on the side. Service was so slow (he was young and tried his best and I knew that). The kids were not the least bit entertained by the Santa who was lacking his iconic hat and did not engage them at all. Play the roll if you're there, these kids have had a crappy few years and looked forward to telling Santa what they wanted, but he didn't even ask. I don't mean to rant, but I was not the only customer upset with their meal.

Ate here before and was very bad the first time, second time only somewhat bad. My Eggs Benedict were dry and overcooked, and muffin tasted microwaved. Don’t have any expectations going in as the only thing that saved this meal was atmosphere for holidays…

Staff seemed a bit overwhelmed.
Tried a couple of the Christmas drinks and our party did not enjoy them and barely finished them. Some of our food came out cold and one dish wrong.
It was a bit disappointing as our friends found this location because of a previous positive dining experience they had in JC. We were really looking forward to this night out.

The service was very poor. The servers were understaffed, which is understandable given labor shortages. But the hostesses and the manager should have stepped up to help out the servers. We waited 20 minutes before anyone offered us a drink. I had to go to the bar to order one. After the bartender made the drinks she left them behind the bar instead of giving them to me. Then she left to take care of some other group. Very weird. The employees seemed very disorganized and overwhelmed. Food was as you would expect, nothing great. Decorations and lights were very nice.

Their Christmas setup is really something to see. Live music was good, but a tad loud. Only real improvement I would suggest is more servers. Our server did a great job, but I could see she was running all over the place.

Food was horrible, not worth what they charge. Waitress was ok a little slow considering we were the only ones there. I still tipped 20% because I know everyone is struggling at this time.

The burgers are very good. It was easy to get a table. I ordered a grilled peach salad that had 5 small pieces of peach and was 90% croutons! No lettuce just some basil and cherry tomatoes. Not at all what I was expecting. The amount of croutons was ridiculous! I will not be ordering that agin.

It a decent restaurant where you can grab drinks while everyone is playing games and whatnot. It does get loud when there are parties and very busy on weekends. If you want to enjoy and not wait long, make a reservation in advance.

I should have given it one star for service but the gentleman that finally served us did his best under the circumstances. He was so apologetic that we had to wait 25 minutes for someone to approach us and unless I called out as he went to greet another table no one would know we were there… unfortunately the person that seated us may not have let anyone know. I felt bad for him as they were grossly understaffed for Memorial Day weekend on a cloudy/rainy day.

I give him credit for trying - I blame management on this one.

The restaurant was nice - had a great time with my family for Mother's Day. The venue is next to the arcade and iplay event which makes it even more entertaining for the entire family. All ages welcomed to have a blast.

We made reservations and were seated right away. The music was too loud. Server came soon after we were seated and took our order. Food was just okay and was way overpriced. Wine was of low quality and tasted bad. I would not recommend this place. Eat before you get there.

Per instructions for reserving an igloo to done in we made the reservations and went to pay the 50 dollar deposit that would later be used on food and beverages only to be informed that its a $200 minimum to get an igloo that seats 4.

The service was amazing! The waiter was attentive and super nice. Always made sure we had drink refills. We booked an igloo to sit outside. A manager contacted me the day of to make sure we still were coming due to weather concerns. Gave us the option to cancel and be refunded if we wanted. They also gave us an extra hour in the igloo at no charge which was awesome. Highly recommend!

The food was so greasy. We ended up sending out burgers back and not even eating. They were understaffed. It was expensive for bar food. I will not come back.

We enjoyed our visit to IPlay America. We went for the pop up Miracle. It was nicely decorated. The Christmas drink we had was good and served in a cute cup. The food was good, our server was awesome! I wish I remembered her name, she suggested the drink and was very pleasant. We had a nice time for our first visit.

I was surprised actually at how good the food was considering that we were eating in a kids play Place. Our server was very nice. We ate outside and the fire table was great! The music was a little loud but we ask them to turn it down and they did so right away. I would definitely recommend, especially for someone who's looking to eat outside

It looked very pretty for their Miracle Pop up bar. The food was good and our server was very attentive. It was pretty loud because we were right near the live music but the musician was great so it didn’t bother us. Good overall!

I asked if I would be under a tent with heaters and she said yes! I was told with a group of 5 or more I would get a fire pit, i did not... upon arrival I was told it was first come first serve and realized it was out with not tent. Sat the furthest away from 1 TV to see a UFC fight. What was advertised and told to me over the phone is not what I got. I was not happy!

After being seated, we waited 30 mins before we even had a waitress come over to us. Then when we finally ordered it took another 20 mins to even get our drinks! Poor service but the atmosphere was great.

I think I expected more Christmas decor. The music outside was a bit too loud since I couldn’t hear anyone in my party. But after 2 requests they did turn down the music. I didn’t love the Christmas themed drinks but the regular menu drinks were good. The only food I got was the pretzel and that was very good. The fire pit and heaters were great.
