We felt very safe playing games and eating here! There are big glass dividers between tables (for Covid measures) to maximize the space. Staff were friendly and very helpful. The noodle bowl is delicious, they even use gluten free soy sauce to make it celiac safe. This is a great spot for date night.

It was a great evening with friends where we got to see a different side of each other. The guests were very helpful and enthusiastic to teach new games and share their obvious favorite hobby with us. They engaged well with us socially and were not nosy but a good part of the experience!

My husband and i went to across the board with two of our daughters (age 8 and 14) for a family date night. It was a perfect pick! We had loads of fun.

Despite the pandemic, the staff made us feel comfortable while having fun trying out different board games. A great atmosphere where you can explore different board games with quick explanations from the staff.

Your staff are ALWAYS so kind, warm, and helpful. Across the Board is a place I’ve always felt welcome and never intimidated or uncomfortable. I hope the bosses know how lucky they are to have such great people working for them.

Game experts were quick to help when we were looking through the rule book which was super helpful. It was a tad bit noisy though due to a big excited group behind us so it was hard to hear the game experts explaining the game.

Always a great experience! Pre-covid, we would take our time perusing games, but not pulling them ourselves wasnt a problem. We started with a game we knew, and then asked for suggestions - game suggestions were super helpful, and staff read our vibes and gave exactly the right amount of information to help us get started. We've only eaten there once, awhile ago (I was happy with it), usually stick to snacks and drinks, but always enjoyable! Would definitely recommend!

The service was great, and staff was friendly and professional. Great venue for our team-building event. Proper distancing between tables and never felt like our well-being wasn't a top priority. The food was excellent and my team was very impressed. Thank you!

While the drink prices were incredible reasonable, food prices were really high. It was my first time but all of my friends assured me the food was small portions for a large price. We bought the dice bowl which was good, but even if there were a fewer appys that were a little cheaper, I would have bought more food
