    Extremely noisy in the 310 dining area but to be expected with the arcade. Not the place to go if you want a quiet meal but the energy is high, lots of tv’s. The kitchen lost our order so we had a 30 minute wait for food. Our server was able to cut our food bill by 50% without us even asking. Food was ok. Chicken sandwiches were good, wings and fish and chips below average.

    The burger had no taste and the fries after just 2-3 mites were hard to chew on! The kids crispy chicken bites were far from crispy or soft! The environment is great to entertain a full family, the server was good, however the food need big improvement.

    I ordered a chef salad and I had to send it back. Not only did I have flies around it. But there were bones and gristle in the salad so it was uneatable. It happens. The waitress was very understandable and it worked out in the end. I didn’t eat haha but it can happen. All good. It won’t stop me from going again.

    Food was great and so was the service. But for how many games are there, there were too many people. You can barley play games because there are lines for everything or people hogging games. There should be a system to manage how many people come in or play games at a time.

    It was extremely busy, so service was slow. The family's food was all right - mine was pretty bad. Dry, undercooked pasta with a bit of salmon (skin still on) and about 4 shrimp, with hardly any sauce. My daughter's macaroni cheese was actually quite good, though.

    Out of the 12 of us that went, only two of us liked our meals. My pizza was really dried out, overcooked and the chicken smelled weird. I ate the arugula off the top. That part was good.

    The Rec room was not overly crowded. Provided saniwipes for games and hand sanitizer, but not enough. Food was decent, ordered the Cobb salad, loaded nachos, pizza and fish and chips. Food took a bit to arrive and appetizer came at the same time as our food. Asked for extra sauce and was done my meal by the time it arrived. Server was super friendly, but just not on-top of getting us what we needed in a timely fashion. Overall we had fun and nothing really ruined the experience. We would go back again.

    It was a great way to have some food and fun times with my 3 daughters and mom for Mother's day! Some of the games were "out of order" which limited what games we could play, and some of the games were "worn out" for example their basket balls were either soft or the stitches were ripping off so your finger would get caught in it...but other than that, the venue is a great place to have/share food and play with your family or friends.

    The restaurant has a great ambience, close to but no in the action of the nearby games. The food was very good, the drinks were fantastic and the staff were awesome! They really made it enjoyable. Then we went to play the games, including the VR shooting games, and all 5 of us had a blast. Very good place for adults and kids alike!

    The service was very poor. I’ve never experienced anything quite like it. My 11 year old was served a raw hamburger, still bleeding, and although the waitress was very apologetic the cook in the back who we can see from the dining room did give a second thought to the raw food he was serving to a child. When the bill came there was an issue and the waitress was going to call the manager. We waited 10-15 min no manager showed up. She then told us we didn’t have to tip her and we could just leave. Seems to me the biggest issue with this place is poor management, the staff is clearly inexperienced and don’t care. We will not be going back.

    This place was awful. The staff were some of the most unorganized and emotionless people I have ever seen. Our waiter didn’t smile once and gave us the impression he hated his job. Also I booked my reservation for a date which was declared to them and they put our table in the middle of 2 families and a group of 8 rowdy kids. Furthermore, we asked to play golf and they would sent someone to let us in, 30 mins go by and we see the staff letting a different party in even tho we had never been helped. All of their activities are kinda sub par, the VR part is basically 11 games 10 of which are the same game just reskinned. Most of the arcade games are just gambling games and the ones that aren’t are always being used or broken. The food can be good or bad which was weird, I ordered nachos and it made my stomach twirl but the food my date ordered was pretty good. Same with drinks, they were either really good or really bad and there is no in between. They also have poutine advertised but it’s a secret item for some reason because it is not on the menu they gave us. The worst part is the advertising for this place makes it seem like a bar like atmosphere but that could not be further from the truth. When we went I swear there were more kids than adults and it made the whole place feel like a modern looking chucky cheese. Seriously the worst dinning experience I have ever had an I am not exaggerating mostly being due to the staff. Even witness one of the staff playing dance dance revolution with one of the customers. All the other review seem to agree that the staff here are bad and it genuinely feels like the staff do whatever they want with no management whatsoever. Very infuriating when everything costs so much cause they treat it like it’s supposed to be fine dinning.

    Fun spot for a few drinks and games and I'd recommend it for that, but eat somewhere else. The food was cold, especially the sides which had evidently been sitting around for some time before they were served. Our server really didn't seem like he wanted to be there, and I'm not sure I blame him.

    They accommodated my party of 16 at 2 tables and put us side by side, which was very good since you can only book 10 at one table. Our server was excellent. He was very friendly. Everyone enjoyed the gaming afterward. It made for a great experience for the 1st time being to the rec room. We will be going back.

    Food was horrible. Fish n chips was mostly batter. I might as well have gone to 7 Eleven for the nachos, as they use the same ingredients. The chicken sandwich was okay. The fries were greasy and unseasoned. Beer was warm and pop was flat. The pretzel and the lemonade were good enough. And the price point was not reflective of what was presented. Never again.

    Games were fun, food was ok, some dishes were lukewarm and had to be returned. Server had them taken care of. Caesar’s were brought without garnish. It was also so loud we could barely hear our server at the table. Still requiring staff to wear masks didn’t help either. All in all it was an ok experience.

    Very nosy but expected. Service pretty slow, seemed like not enough staff for size of place. Food was under average. I had the burger and the top of the bun was hard as a rock and the Pattie’s were over cooked. Also had the jalapeño tempura which were pretty good.
