$168.00 (with tip) for burgers and fries. The kids meals are $20 each! So not worth it.

I was not impressed with the organization of their staff upon initial contact. They need to clear up their website and inter-company communication regarding group events/party spaces at the very least. We also felt extremely rushed at the dinner.
From start to beginning, it was not a good experience and made for a less than enjoyable dinner.

I was there a year ago and it was a great experience. Something has gone massively wrong since. The food and the service were HORRIBLE. The best part of this visit was when we left.

$20 for a crappy McDonald’s quality kids meal that my three year old barely touched is ridiculous. Disappointing and we won’t be back.

Disappointing all the way around. Food was mediocre at best. Service was soooo slooooow. Extremely overpriced. Took my 11yo son sand some friends for lunch. Literally too 55 minutes from the time we sat down to get our food which was just kids burgers and fries. It wasn’t even that crowded. Kids didn’t like the food. Buns were greasy. Onion rings were oddly sweet. We got the huge sundae for dessert-it looked great but tasted awful. Brownie/cake was stale. Will never return.

It’s ok for the ambiance. Servers are great and entertaining. Fun setting, however the food was bland. My burger hardly had any cheese on it (and it was a cheese burger). The onion rings were very oily and I could not eat it all. Tasted like old oil

It has the potential to be something great. Fun theme, but could do more spy things for kids, e.g. decoder rings, invisible ink, more who done it solving etc. QR codes, etc. Adult beverages were way over priced. Appetizers good. Main dishes...average.

This was honestly the worst meal any of us had ever had. The price for 4 chicken wings was $12. The burgers were literally as dry as cardboard and the onions rings were so soggy it was ridiculous. Such disappointing for celebrating a special birthday.

We had our kids, 8 and 9 with us. The website raved about magicians and we didn't see anything like that there. Our server was not super attentive and we had to wait quite a bit for refills and such. It was a fun place, but i don't think we would come back. Very pricey menu for burger/fries type food.

We went at lunch, very few people in the restaurant. I think it might be more fun if it’s busy and louder, also they have a full bar but we didn’t have cocktails and I think that might have help to lighten up and engage with the scavenger hunt. Our server kept our glasses filled and the food came quickly and was hot, but the food was average and the price was about what you’d pay for any decent eats in the city. Cool decor and concept is fun. Not sure we would go back, so many other places to chose from.

All of the staff were nice enough. The kids loved the Spy feel of the restaurant and all of the added things for them to do! The food was average in taste, but the bottomless sides...are a very innovative, parent friendly option. We unfortunately, never got the soft drinks that came with our meals...as the adults had drinks from the bar and the kids were too entertained to notice. Overall...a good experience.

This is an interesting idea, BUT it's SO expensive for what you get. Food is OK. The kids cheeseburger is $20 just as a reference. My 8 year old and husband went around to try and figure out the secret clues, but it wasn't exactly what we expected. We thought it would be more interactive with the entire staff. I wouldn't waste my money again next time.

Wasn’t very busy, but the service was super slow. Waitress checked on us twice. Forgot half of the food. Didn’t bring out 2 of the orders until about 30 minutes later and it was just salads. Went to order dessert and was out of ice cream. Very disappointing.

My expectations was too high. The scavenger hunt was not organized correctly, there was no instructions. We was given a list and was told to go from there. Our food took like 1 hour an half. Appetizers came back cold, after waiting one hour an a half they had no salmon, so my husband and I split my burger. I can say they DJ was very good. He play all the good old school hip hop.

I was very displeased! Our server did not explain anything to us upon arrival so I had to ask others for information about how my kids participate on the spy activities. All of our food was extremely overcooked. Onion rings were burnt and my chicken sandwich was so crunchy I almost broke a tooth. We had to send my daughters burger back to be remade. It could have just been a bad night but for one adult and two children and $75 I expected at least decent food quality.

I have already recommended SafeHouse to MANY!! So much fun! It was a surprise to my family of 6! My husband said he'd need a head's up in the future! ha! But my 4 children had an amazing time! Even my 16 year old was participating in the mission! The burgers were amazing my husband and son said. Our server was also a LOT of fun! She kept things interesting and the kids involved!

I really don't want to say yes I would recommend to a friend but the bartender/waiter agent Happy made the experience worth it. We had reservations but were still seated in the bar where they told us we would have to sit because they assumed we didn't have reservations. We waited almost 30 minutes for someone to take our order and we were never giving the full run down on how to enjoy the spy experience. The food took FOREVER to come out but when it did the burger was delicious and the fries were cold. It seems like a great place to bring your kids or have fun with friends we just didn't get that experience. I'll try again because it was fun getting in and leaving out.... That's probably the only thing that will save the place.
