The employees seemed very unhappy. The short man whom I believe was the manager was very stern and
not very friendly to customers at all. This is in comparison to other restaurants that
we visited at the Broadmoor. The Hostess acted like we were "putting her out to seat us" !
We switched to the bar seating and the bartender gave us better service than the original waitress.
Most of the servers did not smile and acted nervous.

The venue was great. Cool fireplace, great bowling lanes, very attractive seating area. The hostess was great. Our server was awful. Really slow, and completely absent for extended periods. I ordered a $27 plate of salmon, with roasted fingerling potatoes and veggies. Everything was dreadfully under seasoned, the potatoes looked boiled rather than roasted, and there were maybe two carrot slices. Really an embarrassment at that price point.
I think what is the most irritating though, is that there's a mandatory 20% service charge added onto every bill. Maybe that's why the waitress wasn't motivated? She knows no matter what she does she's going to get a 20% tip anyway. Shameful.

Service was excellent. I had a side of fries with the Cobb salad and water to drink. The bill was $28. Not cheap but portions were generous and tasted good

Fun family atmosphere. Dinner was tasty. Recommend the Cobb salad. Good kids’ menu. So fun to eat and be able to watch a baseball game and then play shuffleboard, pool, and foosball. We decided not to bowl because it was getting close to bed time, but should make a reservation. It can fill up.

Every other restaurant we went to at the Broadmoor was wonderful! We were very disappointed by the food and service at Play. We thought the food we ordered was just a step above amusement park food- low quality (with high prices) and the service was lacking especially compared to the stellar service we received everywhere else at the Broadmoor. It would have been fun to bowl if we had made reservations earlier.

Our waiter was Daniel, he is from Europe here on an intern. He was very informative about the menu and EXTREMELY accommodating. He was the BEST server we had at The Broadmoor during our week stay. The setting was family friendly and comfortable with several activities to keep younger guests entertained. We do not have young children any longer, the young children were a joy to watch. Good food, fun atmosphere and Daniel was GREAT!!!!!!

This place was very cool and worth visiting if your at the Broadmoor. The drinks were good, service was great and the food was surprisingly good. The only thing you should be aware of is that it is $50 an hour for a lane. This could be a good deal if you have a big group but, if your crew is small, this is pricy for bowling.

Unfortunately, we were disappointed in Play at The Broadmoor. I was expecting an upscale sports bar but really felt like it was just a fancy burger joint. There is only 1 pool table and shuffle board game and if it's busy, you have to fight to get any time on those. The food was average at best and one of our burgers had to be sent back because it was burnt and overdone. There are no TVs in the dining area so if you want to watch a game while eating, you have to go stand by the bar or the pool table to see it. Also, bowling is completely separate so you have to reserve that at a different time than when you are in the dining area. The bar area and bowling lanes are nice so if I was to go again, that is where I would spend my time instead of the sit down dining area.

It was just okay. The advertising of it was better than the reality. Food is fine, though overly salty. The tater tots smothered in cheese and meat sounded like a delicious guilty pleasure but was very greasy. Our server was very nice but it took forever to get our check due to the food coming from different locations or some other reason i did not understand.

Our service was so slow (the place was almost empty when we arrived) and we paid $100 for 2 burgers and 2 drinks. We are blue collar, hard working class people coming for one night to try to get away for a big birthday, and choose this place over the others because it was the cheapest. The automatic 20% gratuity on everything is a complete scam and rip off. This means you can have horrible, slow service and you have to pay an outrageous amount for it. The food was just barely okay and way over salty.

The Broadmoor overall is only for a certain class of people that can bleed a ton of money for nothing. This is not even remotely affordable for the middle class. The only good reviews I have seen were all from people who came here on business and didn’t have to pay for themselves.

This was a great place to visit, eat some great food and do some bowling. Just be prepared to spend some money. Dinner, drinks for 2 and a kid with an hour of bowling was well over 200. Would go again for the great service and comfortable atmosphere, but for the price will not be doing it all the time.

Has a fantastic lunch, incredible service as you expect at any of the Broadmoor facilities. Would have marked it louder if more bowling had been going on, but only a few frames were played while we ate. Reasonable prices.

We went here with some friends while staying at the Broadmoor and had an excellent time. The food is classic American but with quality ingredients and creativity in every dish. Definitely would recommend and just like any restaurant at the Broadmoor, the service is top notch.

The menu has changed and now very limited options--pizza, burgers and salads. Prices went up and the quality of the food went down. The flatbread pizza used to be my son's favorite, rectangular and served on a wooden plank, but now just a generic round pizza. It was very noisy and service was not great. Had to wait about 20 minutes to get the check after the server cleared our plates. They also automatically add a 24% tip.

Our experience was absolutely AWFUL! Service was super slow, went a long time with empty beverages and to top it all off I asked for a burger no pink. The first was actually red and bloody, 30 mins later a 2nd was brought out. Mind you by this time my entire family was already done eating.. the 2nd burger was still pink! What a nice way to ruin my meal with my family. The manager didnt even have enough decency to come to the table and apologize. I wouldn't recommend this restuarant to anyone and I will be sharing my review everywhere possible. For a Broadmoor restuarant this place is such a shame!!

Boring menu- not worth the $$. The spinach salad was flavourless and too simple. Tatortots were exactly what I have in my freezer. We love the Broadmoor and will not be going back to Play. Now I know why I hadn't been back in a couple of years.

The food is in line with a bar/billiards atmosphere- nachos, wings, burgers were all good. The key is to book your bowling reservation as far in advance as you make dinner reservations. Bowling filled up fast during our week.

I was a bit worried that we wouldn't enjoy the food, since I read a lot of reviews stating it was not as good as it should be, but I would have to disagree. They cooked our medium and medium rare burgers perfectly. Food was hot and drinks were tasty with great presentation. The service was excellent. They were nice enough to prepare our table with balloons and flowers for our special celebration. We bowled after dinner and the service was still excellent! I would recommend anyone to go, it's a lot of fun with a great atmosphere! Our party of 5 enjoyed everything about our visit!
