    The food was absolutely amazing. It’s not often my family of 4 can eat out somewhere and all of us love the food! But all plates were cleared here!

    Went here prior to a concert. My chicken Caesar wrap had no dressing on it and the drink I asked for on the drink menu, the waitress had no idea what I was talking about.

    Great spot on 3rd st. The burger was super delicious and loved the mozzarella sticks. The mozzarella sticks were definitely made from scratch and not some frozen box stuff. The drinks were quick and tasty. Solid list of beers as well. Great atmposher with the retro arcade games. Pop a shot was my favorite.

    We didn't actually stay to eat. There was a Packers game on and it was incredibly loud. I couldn't get the attention of any waitstaff. After about 10 minutes we gave up and went somewhere else to eat.

    After making a 2:45 table reservation a couple of days in advance, when we arrived, a sign at the front desk said "please seat yourself". Ok cool, lots of open tables, no worries! After spending 20 minutes sitting at our table and my kids playing a couple of arcade games, not one server approached asking if we would like any drinks or appetizers. Upon walking out, we were told to have a nice day. We ended up walking across the street to Oak Barrel.

    I made reservations here for Mother's Day because I didn't think about it until too late & many places were full. So this would not have been the typical place I would go for Mom's Day BUT it turned out to be just fine! I would not have booked it if it were not for the Brunch menu! We had a great server & we all ordered from the brunch menu & enjoyed our food. I would recommend this place for the weekend brunch, not sure what the other food is like but I would try this place again.

    Loud inside but that is to be expected in a restaurant with an arcade. We sat at a table that is sandwiched between arcade games on both sides which is my only complaint.

    Stopped by for lunch before Bucks game with a kid. Food quality was very poor. Chicken nuggets were burnt and fries very soft. They claims they have arcade games available but more than half of them were broken or not operational. Would not recommend.

    The service is always great - after three visits recently, I am very impressed that service levels remain high. The food is very average. I had a veggie wrap that tasted like coleslaw inside a tortilla - nothing more. And it was recommended by the server as the "best" wrap". If the food would pick up a few notches - this would be the best pre and post game gathering in the Deer District.

    I read a review which stated the food was “bar food” and not to expect anything better. I disagree! The house chili was more like brisket chunks of beef- heavenly! The burgers were hand made “smashed” double decker burgers. And my spicy Bloody Mary had thyme in it! A wonderful surprise to have a chef who took a Bloody to the next level!

    There were 4 of us prior to a Bucks game so it was very busy. This is pretty much a bar that serves food so my husband and I would go back for a drink and maybe an app but not for dinner again.

    The venue itself was great, fun atmosphere and lots of space. We went for the Beyond Burger that was on their menu, but unfortunately it was taken off. Yet, online and with their QR menu it still showed it. That was a bummer.
