    Awful. Our waitress was rude and impatient. The bar was out of several beers we ordered. Food was meh. Took forever to get. We will not eat here again.

    The game was fun. That is the most positive thing I can say. I looked forward to going to dinner as we had this planned for a bit. I was completely disappointed in the food. McDonald’s is cheaper with higher quality.

    Went there for their bingo night with a group of 8. The service was a lot slower than other restaurants to come take drink orders and food orders. I got there at 615 waiting for the rest of my crew but a server didn't come over to the table until after 630. Once drink ordered placed it seemed about 10-15 minutes to get drinks. Only 3 of us has ordered cocktails at that time and the seating area was not full from what I could see. Since we were there early for bingo this wasn't a huge concern with everything being slow as bingo didn't start till 7:30. Once our drinks came, the server did not ask to take our food orders, she left and then after awhile she came back again. The food itself didn't take very long except one person who had a wrap, he didn't get his food till after we had already pretty much ate most of our food so 10 minutes or more after everyone else's food had came. When the server finally got our checks it was probably another 10 minutes to get 3 cards and receipts back. Overall the food was really good especially the nachos with chicken but he cocktails we ordered came in short plastic cups and were 10 dollars. Probably would not buy drinks there again. For one person getting an entree and one cocktail it was 26 dollars before tip. For time reference everyone was at the table by 6:30, bingo started at 7:30 and I didn't leave until almost 9:15, I left probably a couple minutes after I finally received my check.

    Good hamburger thought fries and nachos were just warm. Sluggish service- forgetful on drinks.

    Everyone was customer friendly. There was live music. There wasn't much of a selection on the menu but the food was good.

    Good food. Being in the middle of a bowling alley and movie theater made it loud.

    We brought a group of kids from our school in for a summer program to see Elemental, play in the arcade, have lunch, and go bowling. We were treated amazing by all staff, and it was a great experience overall! We highly recommend.

    It took someone almost 15 minutes to come get our drink order, our food came before our drinks, had to go up to the bar to tell them we never got our drinks, when it was brought to us almost 15 minutes later they were in a small kids to go cup. Which cost us $4.50 and never got a refill on them because it was “last call”. But playing BINGO was fun.

    The food was good & quick to come, but our server was only around if someone told her we needed her. Took 15 minutes just to even put a drink order. Another 20 minutes just to get a water. Tried to play bingo, at times we could not hear the song as the TVs at the bar were loud and the drunk woman kept bothering the table next to us.

    We were there for a special event of Christmas Movie Bingo. Wait staff was horrible, couldn’t order pizza from the menu, they were out of one item on the sampler platter but they weren’t offering substitutions or any money off for it and prices were outrageous. Game was awful as the host had people singing and mentioned different Christmas movies that wasn’t part of the game so everyone was confused and it was hard to hear. Won’t be going back.
