We had a ball, our waiter (David from Hungry) was the best! We laughed though dinner and even more while we pretended we knew how to bowl. Great fun and a most memorable evening .

Really fun for a little family time. We only bowled but had some drinks. I loved the kids menu because the drinks were so special. My daughter couldn't believe she got to have such a pretty chocolate milk. Very good atmosphere and nice people

Don't really leave reviews but thought I would on this one. Neat idea with the games and it was well advertised that bowling required separate reservations. What rubbed us the wrong way was they have a shuffleboard table, foosball table & pool table. We sat and ordered and never once saw anyone at the shuffleboard table so we got up to play while we were waiting for our food and after we had been playing for about 10 minutes the hostess came over and told us the table had been reserved by someone else there but that they were leaving and said it would be OK if we played. I understand about reserving bowling, but come on, you have to reserve everything? And no where was any of that posted. If you are not going to post it anywhere then at least have the server explain it. Plus, if you are not actively playing then you shouldn't be able just to reserve it so no one else can play. Food was average and overpriced.

Good selection is poor. Quality of food fair. But I can say the same thing for all the food at The Broadmoor. Such a strange menu with over priced entrees and no real options for sides.

It's hard to give an appropriate review. While we did have a very good time, and we did enjoy the food, one of the four items we bought to eat was kind of a miss. Then, the bowling was way overpriced and all of the other amenities were used… So we actually left the site without playing anything.

The food was very poor and the service was shockingly inadequate. This is a Broadmoor eatery, but this restaurant fell far below my previous Broadmoor experiences. The automatic 20% gratuity, including on the cost of bowling (??!!) has resulted in an unmotivated staff that no longer strives to please. We found this to be true in several of the bars nd restaurants. Ver sad! Five stars n longer!

Not only is the food over priced, it is fair at best. The nachos were cold tortillas chips with some type of cheese product on top. The kids' drinks were almost $5 dollars each and should have been included in the kids meal. The staff was very nice and the kids had a good time with the games. However, definitely not worth the price - bummer.

Did a company party there. Broadmoor is always one of our favorites. Burgers seemed to be the best choice. Sushi wasn't up to our standards...( we may be "Sushi Snobs"..). Service was attentive.
Overall, we had a real good time

The setting had a club-like feel with its leather chairs, historic photos, and low ceilings. It was not as loud as I expected it might be, in spite of bowling lanes and pool table inside. (That is, until a party of about four adults who could not or did not care to reprimand about eight loud, obnoxious children were seated nearby.)
Edamame appetizer was quite good. I heard that the mac and cheese needed more flavor, and salt and pepper had to be requested. Sushi was so-so in that it was mostly rice with a scant amount of trout I was looking forward to. We left without ordering dessert, due to noise.

I live in Colurado Springs and was visiting my 91-year old father who was a hotel guest. Because he was ailing, we weren't able to plan ahead for reservations at Ristorante del lago, and Play was our only option, other than room service.
This place would be delightful for families with children, and I saw lots of teenagers enjoying themselves.
The noise was just too much for us, but the food was good, and service was impeccable!

Althought the food was good, our server Micah really made the dining experience exceptional. Micah provided outstanding customer service for our group two evenings in a row. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and offered accurate descriptions of the dishes. He was very pleasant and personable.

We came to PLAY after an evening event and had a late dinner, followed by a little bowling. It's a fun space with a bit of a vintage vibe in the bowling alley. The dining room decor is simple, but the food is good and not too expensive. Drinks are a little more pricey. We enjoyed the experience at PLAY.

The food wasn't what I expected from the Broadmoor (burger overcooked) but the ambiance was fun and most of the staff very friendly. Bowling was expensive (why charge for shoe rental when you know that guest of the hotel won't have their own?) although our dinner and dessert cost less than expected. Overall, perfect for a special occasion with kids or a fun date night.

Well. Where should I start? The screaming kids playing foos-ball (table sits in the middle of the dining room....really?!) annoying EVERY patron except the mom who can't understand what the problem is, or the fact I had to return my hamburger not once but twice because it was so undercooked that the bun was soaked in bloody grease (my 11 y/o daughter cold cook a tastier burger).

Ok. My wife's fish tacos were good and the kids' sliders were gone in a matter of seconds. Desserts are always fun and tasty.

If you're bowling, you'll need a reservation for that too and it's not cheap; but hey, you're at the Broadmoor.

The Broadmoor offers a very special night for our family at Christmastime. We had dinner and had two bowling lanes reserved for afterward. It was very fun. Because of the price, we manage it for a special occasion but could not do it very often. The staff is very attentive and it's fun to look around the hotel. We are glad that the Broadmoor is in Colorado Springs so we can take advantage of what it offers. I would recommend that anyone who visits Colorado Springs should find something at the Broadmoor that they can do and experience the ambience and welcoming atmosphere.

When asked about pool table play, our waitress explained it was in a "first come first served" basis. Great! Waited our turn, played a game, finished dinner (yummy clam chowder, btw), went to pay the bill and was charged $10 for pool table play. Didn't really like the suprise, but decided it wasn't worth complaining about.

We are BIG fans of the Broadmoor and highly recommend The Play for a totally different type of Broadmoor experience. A great place for all to enjoy good service, tasty entrees and snacks, music, and lively atmosphere.

Our service was outstanding; especially from our waitress, the young lady at the bowling counter and the young man who served us drinks (and a delicious dessert) while bowling.

Been to Play about 3-4 times. This time was the least fun. It was basically empty in the dining area except for 3 families with babies. Took a long time to be waited on after sitting down - - 10 minutes. Food came out pretty fast and drinks were yummy (shakes).

The pizza was microwave-level quality. Worse than Domino's. Grilled cheese was bland and barely toasted.

Maybe try something different than what we ordered and don't be in a hurry to order.

The best affordable option for dinner at the Broadmoor! The menu can really limeade any appetite. We started with the calamari - and the portion was way more than we expected! It was perfectly crispy and plenty for our table of 5 adults. I wanted to try the sushi but was also concerned about portions. Our waiter told us it comes with 10 pieces per roll. 3 of us shared 3 rolls and we were very satisfied! The drinks are on the pricy side, but the food was much more affordable than I had anticipated so it balances out. Overall, we had a great experience and will be back soon!
