Great experience! Food was good, but a little expensive. Service was friendly, especially the game master who had extensive knowledge on the games we were playing and she helped us lots!

I found your menu to be very overpriced. There were also at least 2 games we couldn't play because all the pieces weren't there. One game, there was hardly anything besides the board It was also very noisy in there. We couldn't even read the directions out to our small group of 4

Great place to have a bellyaching laugh and creating some fun memories !! Make sure to go there with people you like though, cause while playing games everything can go south :)

We missed the two options for bowls of popcorn, rather than your one single option! However, popcorn was still just as good as we remembered.

I found it rather loud but I still enjoyed myself. Hard to know where to start with picking a game to play because there are so many good options.

I really like going to Across the Board. Staff are amazing, game selection is great and prices are reasonable. Food is ok as this isn't supposed to be a restaurant. My only complaint may be the hardest to do anything about but the Acoustics are horrible and with people screaming at every table it gets tiring very quickly. Other than that a fantastic place to go spend a couple of hours

More low carb options would be great, can get really loud in there but overall everyone had a great time! I love that they have games for kids, the game masters are wonderful and the value for the money is fantastic!

Truly one of the best places I have ever been to. The staff are super knowledgeable about the games and can provide rules should a page be missing in the rule book(as happened with one of our games). I always make a point to visit when I have friends in town.

All staff were very attentive and were ready to help us right as we needed it! The games expert, I believe his name was Joel, was super helpful!

Service was very slow. We waited over 20 minutes for our order to be taken. Didn’t even get a chance to eat there. Had to pack everything up. As I was on my lunch break.

One of our families favourite ways to spend an afternoon together. The only thing I would suggest is to add a couple "kid friendly" items to the lunch menu.

It was great, love the setting and the food was really great. Parking is a bit of a challenge, but out of your control. Central location so met the needs of our group.

Really loved the great variety of games. We especially appreciated the one worker who suggested a new game and even taught us how to play. Really added to our experience. And although we didn’t really love the food we will definitely be back.

The food and service were exceptional. Manager Nick and his staff were professional and courteous. Each of our guests were impressed with the venue, food, beverages and service. We will definitely be back! Best place in Winnipeg for a fun event.

Our family had a fabulous time at Across the Board! We were pleasantly surprised that the game master choose games for us and then taught us how to play each game. No wasted time trying to figure out how to play. We found many new favourites. Our daughters were even interested in a game I thought may have some inappropriate content in it. The game master went through all the cards (while we were playing another game) without us knowing so our daughters could try it. What amazing service! We had lunch and snacks and the food was fresh and delicious. The atmosphere was welcoming and relaxed. We have recommended this place already to so many people and plan to be back very soon. On our way out we had already chosen the first few games we want to try on our next first. So grateful for a lovely afternoon at Across the Board with my family.
