    What a fun experience! We did not know the password so we had to work to get in. It was fun to watch everyone else work for it too. It was fun to complete spy missions. So much cool stuff to look at while you are completing you missions. The selfie station was a blast. We were seated in the booth that has the stairs leading up to it. There was a fun little surprise in the end. The food was good. We had the pretzel which a little more dense then I would prefer. The cheese sauce was great though. Tacos, BLT, and hot dogs were great. I highly recommend this place for families or even a date.

    A fun place to visit. It is however getting a bit old and tired. For instance, the puzzle wall looks fun but doesn’t work. We had a great server and the nibbles were tasty.

    It was fun for my daughter's birthday, but the menu items we ordered were unavailable (fish fry), so we got something else and the chicken tenders were as black as this phone I'm typing on and they were cold and as hard as rocks-I'm not exaggerating. They were taken off the bill. My husband and I got our food first. We ate it (I tried). Then one daughter got her food and she ate it. Then, the three of us sat while the last two girls got and ate their food. My daughter got chocolate milk and it was basically white. They did nothing for my daughter's birthday, in terms of cake or singing (we were never offered dessert, so maybe they don't serve it?), so we left there hungry and out of almost $100, still having to take them to get dessert. They do charge extra fees that they don't tell you about upfront (Entertainment fees and other misc fees...), so budget for that. My l kids said they enjoyed the scavenger hunt. Like I said, it was fun for my 9-year-old, but I wouldn't go again. Oh! The waitress (Agent Venus) was great and she had a wonderful attitude.

    Horrible! 1) got greeted hella late 2) got appitizer before our drinks (water) 3) French fries you pay an up charge for ($2) and we’re wilted and cold 4) they have an assortment of things to do as your waiting, however half of the list was closed 5)server took a long time just to bring bill All in all it was digusting and never again. Go to Mc Donald’s at this point.

    Visited after hearing about how great the SafeHouse was for years. The overall experience was cheesy in a good way, but the novelty wears off exceptionally fast. The whole “password” schtick was somewhat fun, but isn’t more than a footnote in the visit. Our server, Agent Venus, was great with minor exceptions. Forgetting a drink here or disappearing for a little too long there when we needed salt, pepper, and ketchup which wasn’t on the table. Wasn’t a dealbreaker in the least, but otherwise enthusiastic and nailed our orders spot on. Kind and professional. The drinks are good, particularly the Jaws Demise, which is a Long Island iced tea with a little variation. Delicious and getting to keep the cup is nice. The food was decent, but not mind blowing or life altering wonderful; but SafeHouse is definitely not the place you’re looking for to get an amazing, high-culinary experience. It banks on the cheesiness to the point of satire and mostly delivers an off-color - if not somewhat cliché - spy experience as dictated by pop culture. The steak tacos and chili Mac are worth at least trying, but the fundamental problem in my mind is that there’s nothing overwhelmingly drawing someone to come back. There’s little calling you back after trying the drinks, the food, and experiencing the ambience. SafeHouse, in several aspects, felt like a carnival or fun house that was well-passed it’s prime but isn’t quite ready to call it quits. A return visit is a hard maybe, at best. And that’s predicated on the assumption that the people I’m with would be pushing hard to go back. But, frankly, I just can’t see that happening.

    We drove all the way from Chicago (where we have been to the other location) to celebrate my birthday. We arrived and were seated by the first waitress (Agent Clean) who we informed the reason for our visit. She said I would get the cake and they would sing happy birthday. Five minutes later she came back to the table to let us know her shift was ending and Agent Sassy would be taking care of us. She told me she would let Agent Sassy know about my birthday. Agent Sassy was the worst, she didn't seem interested to be there, took our order and when we said it was my birthday she said I would get a sundae. I told her Agent Clean said I would get a slice of chocolate cake and they would sing happy birthday. Her response was , well every server dies things differently but she would see what she could do. Her service was subpar, she didn't ask us how the food was and when I said I needed a box for my food she simply said sorry we are out. I had to suggest a take out cup for the food and they didn't sing happy Birthday. Agent Sassy spent more time on her phone and having a drink behind the bar instead of helping us have a memorable experience. What a huge disappointment, we won't be back but I doubt they would cate

    Entry was fun. Decor was cool. Would have been more fun with a kid. Waitress was hurried even though it wasn't busy. Food was subpar for the price. Burger was less tasty than Culver's. Fish was also somewhat bland. Nothing too special, maybe it gets better at night

    Made a reservation and they didn’t have it. Host had an attitude. Food was mediocre, nothing special. It has gone downhill since the last time I’ve been there. They charge a $1.50 “entertainment fee” which is really dumb.

    The food was amazing. Our initial greet and drink order was a little longer than anticipated, but after that our service was great. It was a bit loud in the kitchen, but we were very near and we could hear the different music from there than the main space. Overall, a great experience.

    We made our reservation weeks in advance, and ended up with a table near a Heavy Traffic area and people were constantly bumping into us. Our initial service was good and our food came out quickly. In fact too quickly. Only a couple of minutes after our appetizer arrived, our entree arrived. After a couple of minutes of having our entree, our server came with the bill and asked if we needed to go boxes. This was after being in the restaurant for a total of 15 minutes. After we explained that we were still eating, we didn't see our server for another 20 minutes. The atmosphere is fascinating but couldn't overcome our experience.

    Got 3 different tacos. They were ok but weren’t the best. The cheese curds were amazing tho! My daughters each got the basic Mac n cheese and it was kinda cold. Food took a long time to come. Our server was very friendly. Atmosphere very cool! Overall glad we went. But the food itself was kinda disappointing.

    Food was freezing cold, when drinks were refilled they provided no ice even when asked. Kids meal (for 2 year old) was brought out 15 min after adults meals. Magician was using F bombs when 4 kids were present and NO adults. Then pushed for a tip over and over. Ordered a to go order with dinner and they did not start it until after our meal was completed so we had to wait 30 additional minutes. Went for my birthday, they said they were to busy to accommodate. Very poor, we were very excited and drove 40 minutes for the experience. Will not return.

    Everyone great until we received bill and had a 3.00 entertainment fee so what would have been a great ending to our meal was a memory if a money grab. Just build your fee into the food and beverage price . We will not recommend to others

    The decor and all the spy stuff was a blast. However… It took more than an hour to get our food even after I told the hostess a member of our party was diabetic and needed something in his stomach (chips, whatever). Then, when the food came, it was only four of the five meals. The diabetic’s order hadn’t been put in at all. Three of the five meals were salads and required no cooking. Also, we ordered two very expensive drinks just to get the signature glasses and they never came. The experience was still fun, but I’d recommend ordering as little as required to keep the table.

    Hadn’t been to the Safe House in years. Unfortunately, not in a hurry to go back. Went for lunch on a Saturday. The restaurant wasn’t full, Service was on the slow side, but our server was pleasant and apologetic. When our food came out we received three of our party’s food, but the other three didn’t arrive. We assumed they would be right behind. After waiting at least 10 minutes, our server appeared and we informed her that half of the orders still hadn’t arrived. She said she would check. Another 10 minutes. No food. Server finally shows up again. Again, she’d check. It was over a half an hour before the food finally arrived. We had actually been looking for our server to just get our bill and her out of there. By this time the spy theme had worn off and we just wanted to get out of there, but apparently the spy theme runs deep as our server was MIA. At the end, we received our bill. Nothing adjusted, no cocktails taken off as a courtesy. Just a weak apology. I realize staffing is so hard. I get it. But this situation was ridiculous. I know they could have done better.

    My only comments would be that 1) there were some hidden fees added to our tab, such as an “Entertainment Fee” and a “Service Fee,” that I wasn’t thrilled about. And 2) our server was very friendly and played her role well, but she did not come back to check on us or refill any drinks.
