We waited long for food. Two people ordered same burgers well done, one came out perfect, other had blood. Burger was sent back and by the time a new burger was brought out, rest of family was done. Lighter on fondue for pretzel bites didn't work. Manager came by and said dessert was on him for our in convenience, so we ordered 3 desserts to share. Waiter acknowledged that they gave military/veteral discount, to which my husband showed his ID. Took forever to get our bill. Most of us left, my husband stayed to pay bill. When bill arrived, we were charged for all 3 desserts and no militay discount was given. My husband reminded waiter of free dessert. He came back with bill of only one dessert taken off bill and no military discount. My husband just wanted to leave by this time, past 7:30, so he paid bill as is rather than continue to back and forth to make corrections.

The menu could use a refresh but overall a consistently decent place to eat.

Food is great the games really help to break up what a normal dinner would be. I would recommend this place every day of the week.

Dropout when we visited. Arriving at 4:40 for a 4:45 reservation, our food still hadn't arrived at 5:45 and we had to leave at that time because my daughter had grad student graduation and had to be there promptly. So we got every thing to go but we had to throw away the $26 salmon after it sat too long. Much more to story but there was a lot of evasion about what was happening by various levels of management as to causes and when the food would arrive. General manager finally came by to fix things as best he could and we left feeling stressed but partially satisfied. Go ahead and give C. Dropout a try. It can't be as bad as we experienced, and everyone deserves a second chance.

The food was excellent as well. My only mild complaint would be to perhaps turn down the music a few notches. All in all a great experience though.

Unacceptable, given that it was a mothers day reservation and the high top was not conducive to attire.

The restaurant is a bit loud, but I've been in much worse. There was some confusion over our reservation, and they tried to sit us out in the open-air area that was 100 degrees (southern AZ heat). We got seats inside in the AC cooled area, which was a much better area to sit in. Would absolutely go back for that incredible food, we just don't understand the open air part with the very hot summers we get here, seems very unpleasant for guests.

I had no idea it was so big. Big and very loud! If not for the noise level I'd give this place five stars. Nick, our server was phenomenal. He was very attentive even with the huge number of people there and knew the menu by heart and made some good recommendations for us. All in all a great lunch. We'll be back but will ask for a table on the quiet side of the restaurant.

Have ordered the pub burger before w/ onion rings. My wife did as well w/ fries. The other couple also had the same thing they have ordered before: Shaved prime rib dip and spicy Korean skirt steak. Have not ordered any other menu items. Our server was friendly yet professional and checked up on us just at the right time. We like this place. If you have a desire to play ping pong they have a table and I think we saw corn hole too.

No steak left on the menu, dinner reservations were at 7:15p Sunday night. Bread for the French dip was too thick, dense and made eating sandwich difficult. Prestzel dip was wonderful.

It's unfortunate we didn't have any steak available, however we are happy to know you enjoyed other options. Pretzels are a MUST :) As far as the bread for the prime dip goes, please keep in mind that we are a scratch kitchen and would love to be more than accommodating in the future. Whether it be shaving down the bread so it's less thick or getting it on our house made pretzel bun. (Yes, the pretzels are that good we had to make a bun). Thank you for your feedback!

The onion rings and pretzels and fondue appetizers were loved by the whole table. The antipasta appetizers allow customization of your own special plate. The bread was my personal favorite. Fried chicken was perfectly cooked and served with the best mashed potatoes. Would definitely go back.
