We booked a reservation and drove 30 minutes there to find out it was closed. Then had to wait another 45 minutes to get a table at a different restaurant. Not sure if this is on OpenTable or the restaurant but it was very inconvenient on a cold day visiting a new area.

Punch Bowl is closed and has failed to make this change on booking apps and websites. I showed up expecting to sit outdoors with friends but the establishment was shuttered, and there were other people who had also booked times and showed up to a closed restaurant. It needs to be taken off of OpenTable until further notice.

Dang! We drove all the way downtown with a reservation to see the place was totally shut down. No one at all inside. Maybe update the app to determine whether places are even functioning before allowing folks to make plans...

We made reservations ahead of time, then arrived at the restaurant to find that it was completely closed. We tried calling the number listed, with no answer.

Met up with friends here for my birthday and even though they don’t do anything special for birthdays, they made sure we were taken care of with fast&friendly service! We arrived late to our reservation due to traffic but they sat us as soon as we got there and then a bowling lane was available within 30 minutes. Stayed a while on a Friday night with happy hour and we will be going back!

Happy hour menu was good, wide variety of food. The nacho's and margarita combo was amazing, then we got burgers and rosemary fries! We had so much food we took some home, will definitely be back soon!

I always want to like PunchBowl but the service is consistently slow and food is often underwhelming. I am also a vegetarian and there are VERY limited choices for me. I went because there was one dish I used to really enjoy but it's no longer on the menu so I guess I don't have a reason to back anymore.

Such a great place for a low key date. We had tons of attention from the servers and a great time overall. Was nice to have some normalcy for once.

The food was very good. Glad we were able to sit outside. Our server did take a while
to take our order, and was very hard to find when it came time to pay the bill. We went inside to ask about it.

I loved this place! Food was a little bit on the pricey side but honestly it was worth it. Their flavors for things were amazing and I enjoyed every bite! Not to mention their punch bowls... SO GOOD.

Nice place to have fun and eat with your friends or family. However, 14 dollars/person for one hour of bowling seems a little excessive.

Horrible service! We waited forever to get anything, servers inattentive, first time there and no one could tell us anything. Servers were not informative and seem to know nothing of the menu or venue. Manager seemed annoyed to be pulled aside so we could ask how things worked and where to go for what games. After being where and waiting over 35 min we finally got water. Server brought out the wrong drinks, we had to explain that what we order was not what she had brought, she had no idea that the liquor we ordered was clear and not brown and seemed extremely confused when I asked her to bring is the correct drinks.

Every game we wanted to try was unavailable and would have to wait over an hour and a half and that didn't bother us it was a busy sat night, we had planned to just hang at the bar and have a few drinks to wait. Well then we got yelled at at the bar because a guy in our group came and ordered a drink a second before he had taken our card to run our tab. The staff was not friendly at all so we left. I would never go back there, I'm sad and disappointed, I was really looking forwars to trying out this beautiful venue 😒
