I wish the servers would have come around to us and explain how the café worked, like it took them about 30-35min to come to our table and ask if we wanted anything to eat or drink.

I took two co-workers here for a quick meeting and a board game! We had an excellent time, the service was great and they were mindful in the kitchen of my allergy - I had no problems. So many board games to choose from!

Everything was fantastic, except you ran out of pizza dough. I love pizza so that was disappointing. Other than that, good times.

I proffered the Bahn Mi when it came in the traditional sub, the new bread is a lot messier and doesn’t provide as good a taste.

Thank you for allowing us to finish our game, which took us a bit past closing. One of the guests was our keynote speaker from the GAME conference you actually set up a booth at, and Baden presented. He was from North Carolina and wished they had an establishment like yours in his community.

We were going to a concert and it was close to eat. What a total surprise! Wonderful place to go with family and Ben the game master was perfect with recommendations. Almost missed the show! Going back soon.

The service was excellent. We thought we were going to arrive late, so we called and they pushed our reservation 15min. When we ended up arriving on time for the original time, they sat us right away! Servers recommended games, helped us find games, and even brought a game to our table that we mentioned we were interested in playing. Overall, very friendly. Our drinks were good too! I appreciated how bright and clean the restaurant was. We had a great experience.

Your staff provided excellent service! All our students were able to bond over games and food creating the perfect start for the Youth Nuclear Peace Summit the next day! Thank you so much! Estelle Lamoureux

A fun family night for our daughter's birthday. Food was excelent, my kids asked a host for game suggestions, and we got to try some fun new ones we would not have thought of. Thank you for a fun time!

Had so much fun at Accross the Board Cafe, I can definitely see that we will make this our new regular outing. Game masters were always there to help if needed and they explained the games very well (clear and to the point). I might have rated the food a little better had we tried other items (we just had the Dice Bowl and weren't a fan of a few of the mix-ins). All in all we had a great time and we will be back!

Amazing central location, and AMAZING selection of games, with super friendly staff always willing to recommend and teach new games! My only complaint is they didn't have any Dominion game expansions I hadn't already played... ;)

We had a great time. Server was lovely. Attentive without being intrusive. Offered to help us with games if we needed. Super fun way to catch up with some girlfriends who were in town for a few days.
