Such a cool place! Wish we had one in Colorado Springs. Food is awesome, punch bowls are so good and it’s the perfect place for upscale food, drinks and entertainment. Everyone loved trying out VR too!

The food was great, drinks were tasty. The service was pleasant but not very good at their job. We had to keep asking for more water and drinks. The staff was very pleasant just not proactive. I’m paleo and enjoyed the tacos! No tortilla necessary! 😉

Everything was fine but when it comes to our waiter.. she was hurrying us (to order food, to eat, she kept checking on us like she needed the table badly, there were plenty empty table around us & it was not busy at all). I felt a bit embarrassed to my friends because I recommended the place. Because of your clean food. Don't worry! I still think that you guys are good. Just need to improve in that particular service. Don't rush your customers! We havent even try to play yet.. goodness!

This has to be the hippest place in town. Pretentious? Hell yeah, it’s supposed to be right? JK

We had been to this location a few times before, but it seems to have declined. Games on the first floor are great but a lot of the video games upstairs eat coins and some play at a paleolithic pace (even by 80s standards). Food is just OK (siracha fries are the best!) but not many vegetarian options, and the burgers my meat-eating friends had weren't very good. Consider yourself warned: the veg burger tastes like dry meat (so not for those who don't care for that flavor). We had a really spacey and forgetful waiter, and slow and inattentive service didn't help.

Service was great. Food was meh. Chicken was excellent , Faro bowl was dry and poached egg was not poached, more like hard cooked. Another person had the monkey bread French toast, really rubbery. I have eaten before and the food was really really good. Chalk up to the kitchen was having a bad day

It took 20 minutes after being seated before anyone even brought us water. 5 of us (3 kiddos under 8) had a reservation for 9:30am on Fathers Day for brunch. We had no less that 5 different servers waiting on us - just felt like we were constantly being passed around. And on top of that, both “adult” meals were dripping with grease. I’m all for a good greasy-spoon type breakfast, but if you order something with kale, you’re not expecting it to swim in oil. Overall, we were not that impressed with the restaurant side. That being said, we had a great time blowing $20 in quarters at the arcade. The table version of Pac-Man was a huge hit!

You know what’s great about the Bloody bar? Room temperature shrimp.

If that doesn’t fit your appetite, get the wonder bread avocado toast. It’s store bought avocado spread, so you know it’s fresh and safe, but not good - Winner.

Also, they can’t split a bill?

The daily special punch was not too sweet and looked elegant. There were some vegetarian options. The menu had a good variety to choose from.

Hipster hangout with interesting food, lots of grownup fun and a few free things for kids. Got pretty noisy as we left. Took three little ones there and liked that we didn’t have to worry about them making fun noise!

Food has been getting worse. Service is usually ok but this visit was really bad. We love bringing the kids and playing and having a meal and a drink but the overall experience has gone down hill over the last year.

Waitress at our table was terrible. Would have bought more drinks but she wasn't around. After we ate we attempted to play some games. Too many people, no games available as it was first come first serve (no reservations) so good luck. No waitresses to take drink order in the game areas so you have to muscle your way to the bar to get a drink. Overall the place left a lot of dollars in our pockets. We had to go somewhere else to get a drink. Best description is "organized chaos" Desperately needs wait staff in bar area and phone app to reserve games.

I made the reservation at 830 am as that was all that was available, which was fine. I have 2 kids and 830 was doable but when I got the confirmation call I asked if I could move it back a touch and was advised I couldn't, which was fine but when we got there the restaurant had been open 30 minutes and we were the ONLY people there. The food was mediocre and only a few options. My sons OJ was soured, my coffee was gross. I tried to get past all of this because it was Easter and I wanted this to be fun. I asked where the bowling was and the waitress said it didn't open till 11!! I feel like it should have been mentioned that a place that is known for bowling and an arcade didn't offer it during business hours. I tried to reach out to the restaurant before writing this review and they never got back to me. I wouldn't recommend it.

Cool space with good food and a ton of games(pinball, darts, bowling) to keep a party of any size occupied. The Lobster & Fries appetizer is outstanding. It's as good as it sounds. Also the Adult Whiskey Milkshake is ridiculously good. Our server Catherine was terrific.
