    All in all the experience was good. For some reason, I was asked for my ID to "make sure I was 18" even though I was walking in with my husband and 4 year old child. My husband was not asked for his ID. obviously, my child was not either. Otherwise, it was great.

    The music should be lower in the eating area - we had to yell at the waitress for her to hear us and vice-versa. The music is great - its just too loud. The food was good - was not disappointed at all. There should be a bigger variety of games - it gets boring after a while.

    The service was slow. The waitress was nice but had a large table to service alone so we were usually waiting for her. The loaded queso appetizer was good but not enough chips. We asked for more chips but by the time we got more it was too late. And the vodka cranberry drink was in a tiny glass with watered down vodka. We even talked to the manager but he didn’t seem concerned. Its our favorite drink so we know what to expect. Overall a Terrible experience .

    I had bought gift cards for my 3 nephews for Christmas. The bonus ones had just expired the day before and Kendrick, the manager, made it right and I was very pleased with his and all the staffs top notch customer service. We will definitely be back for more holiday or birthday celebrations.

    Environment was great, good service and games functioned perfectly. The boneless wings were not exceptional, as they were very dry (despite ordering wet rub) and extremely crunchy.

    Took two hours to get our food. One persons food was received 1/2 before anyone else’s. Ordered two appetizers and only received one. Then 1/2 later the other one. Keeps having to ask other services for drinks.

    I would love to see some lower salt items on the menu. And be careful of the BBQ Flat bread pizza. I ordered it took a couple of bites and couldn’t eat it due the amount of BBQ sauce on it. They did offer to remake it but turned down. After sending it back and ordering something else. I was still charged $14.00 for the flat bread pizza.

    Dylan, our waiter was really awesome!! He wasn’t technically assigned to our area, but he made a lasting impression by always coming by to ensure our party had drinks and to ensure that the food made it out. Really good guy and if we asked for anything, he was happy to help and bring it put immediately.

    This restaurant is a cut above most sports bars. The food we had was good and the service was very good. It’s nice to be able to walk around and play the video games while waiting for your food. The only real negative is the noise level but that is expected.

    This place was absolutely insanely horrible. First, no one was answering phones or any questions. (I should’ve just stopped and gone somewhere else right then) The server forgot to get half of the tables food orders and kept disappearing. We had to get all our own drinks from the bar tender. Our table was much to close to the one next to us and we couldn’t even hear each other over the music or other screaming kids and people because no one could hear anything. Do not even waste your time.
