    Seems like a good concept, but the food was awful. We ordered sampler appetizer, shrimp quesadilla, Mahi tacos and shrimp tacos. We basically left without eating.

    I had a party of 15, my server was great. The bus team cleaned after all courses. It was nice when they brought my daughter’s dessert to sing happy birthday and the table was cleaned off ( I feel like servers don’t pre clean tables anymore).The only issue I had was, I didn’t know that the restaurant was under construction so the table was set up in the hallway by the Golf Top entrance. So it just seemed weird to seat there while people walked in and out.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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

    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!
