Food, fun and games! Great shareable apps and drinks in the form of punch bowls. Bowling, Karaoke, darts, VR and more!

The service was not great and the drinks took almost 20 minutes to get. Not thrilled with the overall experience

Went with my sister and mom for dinner and had a lot of fun! We ended up doing karaoke instead of sitting down at dinner, so we ate in the private room. Great time!

Had a great time celebrating birthday's. Dinner was great and then played games upstairs. We went on a Sunday, so it wasn't too crowded.

Food and restaurant service were fine, but the game room was awful. Every area was booked for a private event (like last time we were there), the bartenders were incredibly rude, and it took them ten minutes to “clean” up puke on the floor—they only covered it with coffee grounds. No mop. No bleach. Gross and disappointing experience.

Awesome food!!! They have the dining nailed. Very limited social area due to private events. 2nd visit, same empty feeling knowing that what I came for was roped off again. I’ve now checked it off my things to do list.

Totally chill place, just met up with some friends from high school but the table we were sat at happened to be a little too wide to facilitate group conversation with the very loud trivia.

I went to this place about 10 years ago and remembered it being more fun. I recently went here to bowl and eat. I called earlier in the day to see how the bowling process works. They said its a waiting list sort of thing. I show up and theres a private event so no bowling til after 9pm. No one mentioned that! Food was so so and the side salad was terrible. Had higher expectations. Won’t go back.

Super cute and fun vibe! Heard this place was fun so made a reservation. Nothing really jumped out at us food wise so we got the green chorizo fries, really good and had good spice. We’re pretty simple, so no drinks jumped out either, so I got the strawberry fizz soda ($4.50) and added vodka. Ended up being $11 even though we know a shot of vodka isn’t $7. Whatever! It was a fun environment.

I would recommend to a friend who was looking for a last minute place to drink with a lot of people. Make sure you're not in a rush though because the service is extremely slow. Our waitress would stop by once every 30 minutes to see how we were doing, and if we weren't ready with an order she would disappear again for another 30 minutes. It was extremely frustrating.

I would only recommend if they were with a family or liked alot of noise. It is definitely not a place to go to talk or visit. We have been here 3 times and absolutely love the food. Too bad they don't have different areas for different types of diners. We won't be back because of the noise. Too bad for us. I can't imagine that the little kids care about the food and it is older people who pay the prices and drink the drinks. If they set up a small area for serious diners I would be so excited. We will miss the food.

The food was great as usual, but it took an exceedingly long time to get our food and coffee. It felt at times like the wait staff forgot about us.

Our server was fantastic! I believe he was training someone who seemed less than enthusiastic but he was incredible and checked on us without being annoying. The food was amazing and the drinks were top notch! We have already decided we will be back!

More of a bar scene than a place to go for good food and being able to talk to others at your table. Cocktails, appetizers and main dishes were all brought within five minutes of each other. We had to ask for refills of water.

Service was fantastic, Bloody Mary bar was great, mimosa bar was....ok, limited fixings but...ok Food was HORRIBLE! only 1 out of 4 of us liked our food. The biscuits were hard, gravy was sweet, portions were small. Queso dip was average at best. Taco's were good. I would go back for drinks and fun BUT not to eat.

I was so excited to show my out of town guests this place, unfortunately, I don’t think I’ll be recommending this to anyone after our experience. First it took them 35 minutes to get us our drinks, we had to send back our food because it was cold. It took them another 25 minutes to replace the cold food. They messed up our drink order twice, and at the end of it all, they comp’d a couple items. Being in the restaurant industry, I would’ve comp’d the entire meal and offered some kind of return offer or gift card. They’ve been here a while, you think they’d have it more together...

Awesome place! We ordered milkshakes and when the machine wasn't working, management offered a round of drinks and apologized. The atmosphere was so fun that not having the shakes was secondary and making it up with other drinks made this place great. I will return.

The Knockout burger was very good! Chicken sandwich was just ok. Cauliflower nachos with chicken was also very food along with the chicken tacos.

Drinks were food but it was really loud and hard to have conversation with friends that came from out of town.

Just ok. Made a reservation for 6 and they had a 4 top with 2 chairs added. Way too small. Hostess rolling her eyes at us when we questioned this did not help. Said we could sit outside or in the bar. Put a couple tables together in the bar but just not the same with 2 round tables. Server was super nice but service was slow. Appetizers were cold bit food itself was decent. One email came out 5 minutes after the others which is a bit frustrating.

I love the concept and the games but it took forever to get our food and then it was mediocre. They also took my friend’s half full beer when cleaning up the table. She wasn’t done & said something to the server, but she didn’t offer to bring a replacement.

The food was really good. Service was terrible. Took forever to get the server to come to our table. Ordered a kids drink that he forgot about. Ordered 2 adult drinks before we ordered our food that came after our food which also took much too long.

Love this place, but I think having a short staff and new bartender on a day when families go to breakfast was a mistake. We waited a longer-than-expected time for food that takes 10 minutes to cook, drinks took forever, the Bloody Mary bar was picked clean, shaker was filthy, warm champagne for the mimosa bar... when a bowl of biscuits & jam showed up, the jam had spilled and was at the bottom of the dish. No butter. Biscuits and mushroom gravy was dry. Like coagulated oatmeal dry. Plus, had to search for them under scrambled eggs (next time, put them on the potatoes, let the food the dish is named for shine). All in all, a very disappointing brunch. And for $100, a very unpleasant experience.
