Service was great.
Loved the dim light and light music.
Issue we had was in one of the sandwich, chicken was not properly cooked and making it really hard to tear down the chicken. We have ordered 4 chicken sandwiches, all of them were very good except the spicy one.
Otherwise pretty good experience.
I would recommend the arcade and bar portion of the rec room to friends I would not recommend anyone spend their money to eat there the service was terrible 25 minutes waiting for a glass of water then an additional 25 minutes waiting for our drinks.
The calamari batter was very thick and over salted we didn’t even finish it between us it tasted of grease and salt. My wife had the abc burger it was ok the goat cheese was very over powering I had the 10oz New York strip the menu said it came with mashed potatoes I got roasted I was fine with that the main was ok not worth the money I payed though we didn’t stay for dessert
The food was amazing. Fresh, seemed homemade and exactly what we ordered. Serving staff were awesome. The only downfall was the 9 minute wait to be seated. A couple with no reservation took a long time to decide where they wanted to sit and no one else assist the waiting customers. It seemed unnecessary. Overall..great vibe and again..the food was fantastic. The dinner and a movie special was a great deal and a lot value for our money. Highly recommended.
Food has improved since they have opened but a kids meal is expensive $12 for a simple grilled cheese and a half scoop of ice cream
The Rec room arcade area was absolutely awesome!!! We had the best time playing the games. The food on the other hand was horrible. It was cold, burnt, and just plain gross. I wouldn’t recommend eating there and won’t ever again.
Went for my 6 month with my girlfriend and the food was good but the service was slow and even tho the day was slow the servers still took a long time to come too our table both to serve the food and pick up the plates and I have been here before and this is out of the usual from the other times I’ve been here
This is our 3rd time eating here, and I want to love The Rec Room because the location makes it so easy to dine and see a movie. But unfortunately the food falls short. The service was slow (it wasn’t a full restaurant, so being busy was not the reason). Unless you want fries and deep fried food, getting something clean to eat is difficult here. I ordered grilled chicken and green beans, and the chicken was very rubbery and tasteless. Unfortunately, My family and I will not be going back.
service was terrible. second time i was there in a week and the service sucked both times.
Ask for beet salad. No beets. Suggested Cobb salad. Lettuce limp and dressing heavy. We talk to waitress did nothing about it. Tip reflected poor customer service
Good experience. We will be back
I thought it was an adult entertainment establishment. There were plenty of kids and families at the games.
Our party enjoyed the food, however, the service was very slow and it was very loud in the restaurant. I think Three 10 should have been enclosed from the games area. I will not be coming back nor will the party I was with as they felt the same. Having The Shed open to the games area is fine but I think not enclosing the main restaurant was a big mistake.
I really enjoyed the pea soup. Would have been nice if they had some crackers to go with it. Natchos were not good. They had lettuce on top. I didn't like the sauce that I was on them. I was expecting to have just cheese melted on them. The table next to me didn't like there's either and asked to have it removed from their bill.
I really like the atmosphere and service. I was there during Tyler Shaw concert.
Food was best kind! Service was fantastic!! Band was good! Games were fun!
Noise level off the charts when you add in the gaming noises plus the music cranked to drown out the games! Panels to reduce noise level is definitely needed!!
Tasty, fresh food. Clean. Prompt service. Very friendly and helpful staff, especially regarding my food allergy.
Second visit, still not impressed, my burger was burnt. My husband enjoyed his cod. But I don’t think I will be back.
Great drinks! Highly recommend the Moscow Mule or Ginger Margarita.
There are not enough gluten free sides. I had the salmon which was okay but I had to have two sides of green salad which was very boring. As well you should have a choice of salad dressings.
Service was excellent. Food was very ok and very overpriced for what we got. Steak was overcooked and chicken was dry. Drinks very over priced
Service was very poor. Our server took so long bringing drinks and food. The food was cold. We were waiting for a long time for our bill
It was nice and different place to come with friends. The service is what got me this time around. It was very poor, as our waitress did not come back to check on us for long periods of time throughout our experience. We had to wait about 25 minutes to get a second round of drinks. We waited about another 30 minutes for the check. I would absolutely go back and try it again though, as I would not discriminate after only one time there.
fries needs serious improvement..ones we got were definitely not fresh, looks like it juat got reheated.,chicken burger and wings were excellent though. it wasn't busy, maybe 4-5 tables including us, we were sat farthest from everyone else. our server got hurt while moving tables, i hope she feels better. if we haven't been isolated, the server who covered her would probably have been able to attend to us better. He was great when he is helping us, but being tje only table isolated, it was hard to get his attention when we need something. it would be nice to keep customers in one section if it's not busy considering the large space that you have.
I'd only suggest it to people that want to play the arcade games axe throwing and bowling. The food was sub par for the price they charge
after waiting over 2 hours for our meals, they messed mine up, and couldn't replace it with what I wanted, when we finally got them, they were cold, dried up and disgusting - people who came in after us were served and left - I made reservations online to make sure - It was my first and last time going there - I will also be telling my family, friends and coworkers not to bother to go there!!
The Rec Room is quite a loud place but with a lot going on with regard to gaming that is to be expected. I didn't find the food very appetizing. For the cost the amount wasn't sufficient. It was also burnt a little. It was too open atmosphere for me. I would prefer the food setting have more booths.
The food was not great! When paying these prices one would expect the food to be tasty but it was very bland and totally not worth the money! Service was slow considering there were many empty tables!
Was also very annoyed that we were turned away from bowling as they were all booked yet there was only one lane in use the whole time we were there! Should probably consider a first come first serve basis especially on the weekends! (There were 5 of us that just wanted one lane so it would have been at least $60 you could have made from us!)
Spent over $300 for a family night out and honestly the only thing we enjoyed were the arcade games! Very cool spot but could use some work on the restaurant for sure
Arrived for last 30 minutes of Happy Hour and ordered wine and 2 appetizers from the Happy Hour menu before ordering our ‘mains’. The pizza appetizer was good. The dip was also good but came with only 4 pieces (quarters of a small pita) to dip with. I requested extra bread as I had over half the dip remaining. These did not arrive until our mains came (so sent back, as my dip was cold at this point).
We had one pitcher water for 4 people that was not refilled at all during entire meal. 3 of us ordered food. Two had a shareable- the lettuce wraps. I was very disappointed. First, we were not told this was an assemble yourself type of meal. And the chicken was very anemic looking.
There was no one checking in with us once we started eating- to ask how our meal was, offer refill on water, or to offer additional drinks etc.
We had to ask 3 times for our bill - we were heading to a movie at 7:15. And also had to ask re scene points.
I left 10% tip - which was being generous. Others in my party left nothing.
I’m unsure if this was all our servers fault. No sign of a manager during our stay. At least 3 hostesses gathered by the entrance. Unsure why there weren’t other staff assisting with clearing tables etc. as we saw our waiter doing this (while we were waiting for our bills). At other times during our meal, there was no sign of our waiter and others walking by our table, avoided eye contact. Other later arriving tables, were served first and left before us! We did not have a complicated menu ordered.
We had been there on a previous occasion and had a very different experience.
We all ordered different items and none of us like it -cod, salmon, Mac and cheese, lettuce wraps, club sandwich, chip stack,
I also ordered three cheese artichoke dip.m which was ok but not enough pita bread.
The food was horrible. We had to send a meal back because it wasn’t edible. We waited an hour for food that tasted like it was made 3 days ago. There were 5 of us and we all said we would not return for food. Games? Yes. Food? Absolutely not. Terrible.
baseball steak was crap and side portions were tiny . my gf's pasta was cold and fish was bad . 1/0 over all
Chicken sandwiches were good. Burgers were dry and overcooked. Borderline burnt
All good! Food was delicious, great atmosphere, service was great!
Great food, spot on every time! The service has been great the last few times I’ve been there too, very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and drinks!
The chicken burger was amazing, others didn’t like their meal. Very loud. Can’t speak to someone across the table.
Great food and great service! Rec Room is never disappointing
Was here for my sons bday. Great food and service and we enjoyed playing a variety of games as a family after the meal. Will be back 👍🏻
Burgers were so burnt they couldn't even be ate. The chip stack was good though
We took our son and 2 friends for his birthday and they loved it! The servers couldn’t do enough for us. Definitely top notch service.
The music was so loud we couldn't hear each other. The drinks were flat. We had to ask different servers if they could go get our server twice. She did comp the sodas though. The popcorn was the best part of the meal. Maybe it was just an off night but I wouldn't recommend based on my experience.
