Our server did not do last call, we were looking for her for at least 30 minutes to try and order more drinks. When she finally came over we asked for more drinks and she said "Bar's closed". We were very upset as there was still 30 minutes left before close. The waitress was very rude to us. Last call should be announced before you shut down the bar.

The game host/ expert was great and really cared if we liked the game he selected for us or not! We had a great time.

We had the Cinnamon toast crunch and Oreo milk shakes, they were weird because the cereal and cookies were blend into them making them grainy and not very smooth like a milkshake.... and spinach and artichoke dip was very hot. However, their game experts were amazing! It was just me and my boyfriend but we found this super fun two player game!

Such a great place, lots of great games no matter how hardcore or casual you want to be. Also the game experts they have are so happy to help you out, find the right game, and teach it to you.

Thanks for a great dinner. We stopped in before the theatre (sorry, no time for games). All our meals were tasty with good portion sizes and the staff were very naturally friendly.

I thought it was outrageous that my friends meal was almost $20 when she had a piece of chicken, no bun or potato wedges and a side salad... sorry guys but when you remove everything but the meat it’s no longer a burger meal 😡 & if it’s still going to be full price and another add on for the side salad.. tell your customer at the time of ordering at least.

It’s so noisy in there that we couldn’t hear each other. Not great if you’re trying to explain an unfamiliar game to your group.

Always a great time at the cafe! Could use more appys or desserts on the menu versus whole meals.

Everyone had a wonderful time at our work xmas party. Special thanks to Nick being flexible and helping us book the party package and to our waitress, Hannah. She was an absolute superstar!

Honestly the server was really bad. Barely came to check on us forgot multiple things of our order and never wound up bringing the menu back when we asked so we didn’t end up getting anything else when we wanted more food. Said she would teach us one of the games then left and never did. I love this place and have been many times but I was really disappointed and unimpressed by her lack of service skills, coming from someone who works in the service industry as well, I felt her job done was unacceptable. She had apologized the first time that it took her a while to come serve us because she was busy with another table which was fine, but then it was continuous from there and it wasn’t busy. There were maybe 4 tables and it seemed like one of them was someone who worked there on their off day.
