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

My daughter celebrated her birthday here with her friends and they had an amazing time! They loved that someone sat down and taught them how to play the games. She would definitely go back.

6 dolars for playing is too expensive. There is a place with the same concept in my hometown and if you eat or drink you don’t have to pay to play.

Across the Board Game Cafe has served my youth group 3 times now and it has been a wonderful experience each time. Their staff are amazing, kind, and knowledgeable. My group, age ranging from 12-17, love the atmosphere, menu, and game selection. They always ask to go back every year.

My friends and I went in January and really enjoyed ourselves. We went again in February and have now decided to make it a monthly thing so we've booked for March also. A really fun way to spend time with friends. Staff are attentive, friendly, and helpful. Food is good--try the whiskey cheesecake!

Enjoyed another nice lunch/afternoon at Across the Board. We've been there before and we'll definitely be back again. We picked our own games out this time as we knew what we wanted to play already. Lunch was a little late arriving - not too long (maybe 40 minutes), just kind of long enough that we started to ask ourselves 'how long ago was it that we placed our order?'. When the food arrived, without us commenting on it, the server apologized for the wait and offered to waive everyone's gaming fee. Service like that earns you a repeat customer, especially when the food is worth the wait! We also had an interesting conversation with someone whom in hindsight I think might have wandered in from the street trying to warm up on a chilly day. I'd noticed him talking to himself earlier on, and it sounded like he was giving himself a really enthusiastic pep talk. He never sat at a table, although there were enough empty ones available. He was just kind of wandering around, and eventually he wandered over to our table. Since he seemed interested in the game we were playing, assuming he was a customer I asked if he'd like to play it when we were done. He didn't quite understand the question, and the conversation became pretty confused after that, but eventually we ignored him and he wandered off to another part of the cafe. While confusing, the interaction was harmless and the individual was friendly.
