Very loud, service wasn't great, games were beat-up and missing pieces.

Our small staff party gathering was just perfect. The food was fast and delicious even with a small adjustment to a menu item. Everything came out hot and with great plating. Our waitress was a good balance of attentive and giving us space to play. Our game master picked really good games for our personalities and the number of players. They were paced well for our group and a good variety to bring out different people’s strengths. He read us well. The person who rang my game purchases through listened to my story even though I’m sure she had a million other things to be doing. In all, a great night.

We actually called the restaurant today to advice how disappointing it was to learn, that 4, 14 year old boys could access an explicit game. Joking Hazard which is completely innocent in appearance until the box is opened. It’s cartoon porn jokes basically! We called to advice that game distribution should be monitored just like at other establishments. EB games will not sell a Mature game without an adult,entering a movie theatre based on age as examples. We were told that they aren’t there to babysit. Kids should have the opportunity to sit in an establishment that is not a theatre, getting away from video games, phones etc...sit at a board game restaurant without having access to explicit games! It’s an innocent evening of good old fashioned board games. These games should be housed in different area. We were very disappointed with managers response. An establishment should take some responsibility in what is available and accessible!! Poor Convo from management and will never recommend your place! Extremely disappointing that young kids who are venturing out socially, cannot even enjoy this establishment because of poor management.

Food wasn't great, but the service was mostly competent and the board games were well stocked and well maintained. Unfortunately, I was there when the staff was turning over for dinner, which led to being forgotten for a little while, but apart from that the service was good.

It is always a blast being able to try out various board and card games with friends! This last visit a server challenged us to beat his high score of ten floors in a game called Munera. We got to 13 and he bought us dessert!

The atmosphere was awesome!! The staff was helpful with the games. I just found that the food was a bit overpriced and also the price per person to play games. It was fun but just a bit to expensive.

Food was overpriced considering the amount of food I was getting to how much I had spent on it, I ordered the Chicken Quesadilla which tasted great but compared to places like the Pancake House, the amount I was receiving was hardly enough. However the atmosphere was great and the staff were great and friendly! Service was fast as well.
