    They were understaffed with one full staff and one trainee. The manager was on duty, one would think to help, but started behind the bar gabbing. The one full time staff could not keep track of all of the tables. When our meals came out, mine was missing. They acted as though it was on its way, but considering the delay, it likely didn't get put in with the others. I asked about it ten minutes later. "Coming right out" said the trainee. Then I asked again twenty minutes after everyone was eating. The staffer looked at me confused, went and checked on it, and bright me I've cold food. At that point I cancelled. My colleagues meal came with sour cream, which he expressly asked to omit. They took it back and failed to even scoop it all off. The burger was mediocre for the price. The Ruben was good. Overall, service was non existent (understaffed and poorly supported by management) and the food was priced based on overhead cost, not quality.

    It's a very interesting place with games and surprisingly good food. It's just off the campus so parking is not easy. Still, we will eat there again.

    We came here with our two sons, ages 9 and 12 before the production of The Lion King. We were a little worried that it wouldn’t be kid friendly, but it totally was. Kid friendly food, and we had a great time playing board games with dinner.

    We went for brunch with a party of 14 to celebrate my wife’s birthday. We ordered bottomless mimosas as advertised and when we requested a fill up of champagne the bartender notified us that they ran out of champagne. Not sure how that happen, but was a bit disappointed about that. Food was good, but it seemed as if everyone had one or two things missing from their personal orders. Not sure if we will go back.

    We have been going to this restaurant for the board game with this 4-year-old girl. This time I invited two more friends to join us. They didn't play the games with us, but we had a great time eating and talking with the girl enjoying her games on the side. It was a perfect setting for both kids and adults.

    We set up the date with a mixologist experience. However, there was one catch: neither of us drink alcohol. We didn't do coffee either. Our mixologist thought really hard and nevertheless came up with a butterfly pea flower lavender latte, a pineapple ginger mint mojito, and he amazed us with a raspberry jalapeño lemonade spritzer. The cilantro and smoky salt were excellent touches. We were impressed that he would work with us on our special request and the results were not dimmed at all by the lack of alcohol. The game master was helpful in getting us some games we could play as a couple, so we enjoyed some Codenames Duet while snacking on a cheese and meat tray. We had a lovely experience and wound definitely go again and recommend the place to our friends.

    Snakes and Lattes always has good, shareable food as well as single person food. It's about $5 to play the wide variety of games there, but it becomes worth it. There's not a time limit on how long you stay there as far as I've seen, which is nice because some games take hours to get through. Overall, great space to hang out either friends and play some new games and nostalgic ones too! (It can get pretty loud around their rush hour though)

    Wesley was absolutely the BEST! He took care of our large party and made us feel right at home! The food and drinks were fantastic! I am a publisher that was in town for the Tucson Festival of Books at UA. I was hosting our authors because of the proximity of Snakes & Lattes to the campus but now I know I would have traveled even farther knowing the quality of food/drink and SERVICE! Everyone rocks at this place but Wesley has a special place in our memory of this event weekend :) Thank you for making me look good to my authors! <3

    Great interior design, excellent wait staff, and a fun environment. The food wasn't great on this visit (though it has been in the past), however. And, the front doors were wide open (which I get helps air flow/COVID mitigation), but it wasn't a warm night, and everyone in my party was quiet chilled by the end of the evening.

    I think the concept of this place is great! However, it took an hour to get a coffee and there were not very many people there. Our table wouldn’t have minded all that much because we understand things happen but the waitress came over and started going off about how it was the bartenders fault. When the bartender came over he then stood there going off about the waitress for a few minutes. It was extremely uncomfortable and so unprofessional. We hadn’t complained or said anything to prompt either of them. We will definitely not be going back.

    We went here for dinner before a show at Centennial Hall, and found it good, but not the full dinner we were hoping for. Nonetheless, what we had was good and the service person helped us find appropriate selections due to diet limitations. The French fries were amazingly crisp and yet light! At the end of the meal, the new manager came over to make sure everything was okay, and even offered us a bit of a discount because she thought we had to wait. I didn't realize it when booking, but this is a place where board games are a big deal, and many UA students were enjoying their games while snacking. So if you like that atmosphere, then this is the place for you!
