We got there right when it opened for lunch and drinks before the baseball game. The staff was great and service was quick. We didn’t realize that this place also seems like a great place to go at night— a bowling alley and arcade area looks so fun! We will be back on our next visit to try this place out in the evening. The food was delicious and our server was attentive and great at giving menu advice when asked.

This was our 3rd time at Punch Bowl Social, and this trip was a bit disappointing. Group of 2 adults and 2 kids (ages 8 & 10). We went on a Sunday around 4 for bowling and a meal. The kids loved the bowling and the arcade, but thought the food was just ok. They had the spaghetti and meatballs and the burger from the kids menu. Neither of them finished their food. They couldn't stop raving about the grapefruit soda, though. I had the A la Bama Chicken Sandwich, which was really good, but my fries were cold, soggy and under-seasoned. The other adult meal was the Lobster Bacon Fries. Those fries were also soggy. Our server was super friendly, but kept forgetting to bring us our drinks and ketchup. We had to ask 3 times. Which was a little odd because the restaurant wasn't that busy. We'll go back because our other experiences at the restaurant have been positive, and we love the atmosphere.

The food was wonderful! Atmosphere great:) I made a reservation for my daughter's 18th birthday. We were supposed to play games afterwards but everything was RSVP for events. They should make you aware as I wouldn't have driven all the way to Detroit for much without the entertainment. Needless to say, my daughyer didnt get the party she was expecting. The server was good but she decided on her own to serve me a $10 cabernet instead of asking me which one I preferred.

We had a reservation at 6:30 pm for 7 and I was excited to get my team together for some fun and relationship building, just doing something different - having fun downtown. At 3:00 on the day of our event/reservation, I heard from the restaurant that we would not have access to any activities because of private parties. We still kept the reservation and wanted to have the experience of the restaurant, hoping it would still be lively and fun - but it wasn't. Food was fine, drinks were good, service was good - but we were hoping for so much more since we can get that in many other places.

We had a 1:00pm reservation but ended up arriving by 11:45am and it was no problem. We both ordered the Fargo bowl which is a wonderfully eclectic and healthy option but filling and satisfying as well. We were meeting up on a holiday to talk for hours so we ordered various drinks as well. It was incredibly loud in the dining part of the restaurant, which is unusual.. because they had a college game blasting. But we commented on it and the waitress took care of it.

We went there for Christmas Eve. Not a good choice for what I had in mind...no ambiance. They seated us in the bar area (where we were the only guests). Main dining room would have been better. Very cold temperature made it uncomfortable. Service was good. Food looked unattractive but was actually tasty. Would be fine for casual dinner just not special occasion.

The restaurant wasn’t even 50% full. Our server was very nice. However, the kitchen was a total mess. It took 45 min for our appetizer to come. It was sitting under lights for a good 25 min before arriving to our table (we were seated right by the window and could see it) it was cold and lacking flavor. The staff overall seemed very slow and uninterested. Every table surrounding us was upset with their meals (cold, taking too long, wrong dish, etc). Our entrees arrived and looked rushed and not prepared well at all. I usually don’t complain about dining experiences, but this one was exceptionally disappointing. PBS is a place to get drinks and play games....nothing more.

Disappointed that Punch Bowl thought to call and confirm our reservation but FAILED to mention that a majority of the restaurant would be closed down due to a private party. We had kids in our group that we specifically took there to enjoy the entertainments such as bowling & darts. This is the fun of going to Punch Bowl and it was not available to us. Very poor experience and only 1 single bathroom for our side of the restaurant available!

We did not have a wait. We walked right in and we’re seated immediately. Everyone was very nice and friendly, especially our waiter. The only reason I did not rate 5 stars is because my friend and I were looking forward to bowling and the other activities. However, Quicken Loans rented out the part of the venue that included the bowling alley. Other than that, we had a great town! My friend was visiting from out of town and she kept saying how good the food was!

Game day. Totally unrelated for the crowd. We waited for 90 minutes and never got our food so we left and went to the game which also was poorly managed by the way.

I was pleased with the food. The shrimp and grits, waffles, black eye pea humus, and red velvet cake were all delicious.

The food appearance, flavor, amount and price are all good; however, the service suffers.

The wait staff needs to be trained. Their attire is atrocious, ranging from too small tops to jeans with tears up to their behind while the chef and food service team have nice uniforms.

Also, the music is ridiculously LOUD! One cannot hold a conversation with table guest and even the wait staff could not hear without us shouting when we placed our order.

Great place to take kids or teens who want to game and hang out. We went from 3:30 pm-6:00 so it was not overly crowded and that was great for us. The servers were very friendly and helpful but it was slow and inaccurate.

I have been to Punch Bowl before but today was diffferent. The service was not the best and the food was ok. The staff at the host stand were very loud and unprofessional in there conversations as I sat at the bar a few feet away. The bartender was speaking with off duty staff and took 7 mins to acknowledge me and take my order. One item that I ordered was charged incorrectly (it was not put in as happy hour). I love the chicken and waffles but today they were dry. The second drink I ordered was mad incorrectly. Our server when I was at my dinner table was phenomenal! Great attitude and service. She was my only highlight this time.

Meant for this to be a fun stop during a bachelor party to drink up and have fun with the games they had to offer(bowling, pool). Reserved a table for my buddies on a WEDNESDAY. Was not informed that the entire social/game area was completely blocked off for an event.

Considering this seems to be the main attraction for this establishment, it seems a bit unfair to not at least be informed that you can't get access to 3/4 of the place.

The food was pretty good and the drinks were enjoyable. The only dissapointment was that the side of the restaurant with all of the activities was rented out and unavailable for use. This was one of the only reasons we came to Punch Bowl. Would be nice if they maybe posted this at their entrance to let customers know.
