Nice beer and drink selections. The Reuben sandwich with fries was enough for 2. Great classic rock live band, Shorebreak who's band members are all high school seniors made for a very nice entertaining late lunch and NFL on the large screen TV's to top it off.

great place! Solid food, service, and fun games. A lot of kids running around that I really wish parents would supervise/control better, but it's to be expected.

Great family eat and play restaurant and entertainment . Went on a Saturday evening. Good music. A little too loud for dinner conversation. Food was very good. A bit on the $$ higher price. Only had one beer and it was very good. Kids loved the arcade games and play area.

I've eaten here three times and everything has been great. Even with just a hamburger you can tell that they are using higher quality meats. The flavors are top quality.

Our server was great and the food was surprisingly really good! I don’t know why I was surprised but I guess nothing from the menu sounded that great, but it was. Not really my vibe with the country music, but it was family friendly and has nice outdoor dining area.

Always a good time. Love the music on the patio. Food was good. Had the Cobb salad and it was very good and would for sure order again. Drink service a little slow but overall it was a good expert again.

Many game machines were taking money but not working. No one could fix it. We did get $1 in quarters back, but I’m sure the kids had dumped in a good $5-10 bucks before they realized they could report the machine was broken. Service was great in the start but then we sat with empty drinks for a while. Really like the place. Lots of food for the $ and good stuff.

Been enjoying this space since they opened! Great social atmosphere for families, with nice live music on the patio and games and play structure for the kids. Although the menu has gone through some changes, the food doesn't disappoint. Casual, fun and tasty!

Love it! We had a large group of kids and parents, and this was not only a place to get delicious food and beverages, but it was super fun for everyone! Loved the live music, lighting, excellent service, and the potato salad was the best I’ve ever had!!!! Try it! Omg!

We were there on trivia night, party of 9. Seated quickly order taken quickly. The food was ok, nothing I would crave later. We ordered wings, gouda fries, ahi tuna crunch wrap, turkey club, burger, and black bean burger. My daughter ordered the "sweetest drink on the menu" and got a sour gross drink that wasn't sweet at all. We enjoyed the place because of the company we came with but I don't know if we would go again. It was OK.

Went for trivia, even put on the reservation (now required) that we were there for trivia, but sat us inside (trivia us outside) where it was so loud we missed several questions. Server was super nice, food was okay but won't be back.
