Experience was good overall. Food portions for tacos and chicken sandwich were rather small for the price. Chicken sandwich had way more breading than actual chicken breast. It was disappointing.

I celebrated my boyfriend birthday and the service was amazing. I even had an opportunity too meet the manager. The manager came too say happy birthday to my boyfriend what an honor. I never received service like that. Thanks everyone again. I will be back.

Overall was a really fun experience with the kids prices were a little high but the food was really good . The food was more high-end so I understand the cost but as far as taking the family out it’s definitely for special occasions .

Party of 7 @ 6:15p on a Wed. The place was completely empty but they weren't ready for us. Hostess went to set up a table and disappeared. No manager on floor. Waitstaff standing in a circle talking in the middle of the dining room. After about 10 minutes, we walked across the street to Paul Martins and had a great meal with great service. Punch Bowl Social embarrassed me in front of out-of-town guests. We won't be back.

Good customer service, allowed to choose between bar, dining room or game area to dine. Wide variety menu. Ease of ordering and quick response by staff a plus. Air conditioning needs to be improved, warm and humid in the game area. Prices are reasonable.

I came with my sister-in-law, niece and nephew for a fun night out. The bowling was great, food was great, service was a little slow. He was nice, but slow. Not sure if he had too many tables near the bowling alley downstairs to take care of or what may have been the cause. We will be back. It was fun!

It’s way too expensive! Also when you go check out items you have to give your ID...so then how do I order drinks? So frustrating I had to go get my ID back then take it back and forth which is crazy! The line to check out or return games or get ID back is crazy long! They kept pushing hard this LGBT drink specials and not everyone wants that. Nothing against it but our sever asked us 3 diff times that’s ridiculous. Don’t push it so much to where people get frustrated. If people want to support that they will

This was our first visit after hearing from multiple people how great of a place it is.
We had a party of 5- (3 kids) we were the first to arrive when they opened for brunch. It took almost 10 minutes for our waiter to come over and greet us. Then after ordering drinks, appetizers, and entrees we waited quite a long time for our food to arrive. Even worse our waiter forgot to put in our appetizer order so we didn't get them, very disappointed but the waiter did apologize. The food was good although my husband ordered the duck confit and it was light on the meat and the seasoning. I ordered the biscuits and gravy which was very good. All 3 kids enjoyed their kids menu items although my youngest was disappointed they didn't offer any breakfast items even though it was supposed to be brunch. The kids had a great time playing the various games and all in all it was a pleasant experience just a few hiccups that made me give 4 stars.

FUn atmosphere and the food is pretty good with a variety of choices. The service however, was pretty lackluster from the hostess to our main waiter. One of the waiters that was assisting ours was really great but the others were barely around enough to ask if we wanted refills or even bring us our check.

The ambiance on a Saturday was really fun! You could hear laughter and good times happening at each table! My friends and I were able to enjoy a fun four player game of fooseball and it was laughs all around with a cool drink in our hands! The food itself was good, but I wish the burger was a little bit bigger, just cause it was so good I wish there was more! The drinks are good but can get a little pricey, so if you want to save a couple bucks order a drink you know off the top of your head and not on their special menu.
The later the nights gets it does get a little difficult to find games since they are occupied the whole time. One downside is that some games do cost money to play, which put us off from wanting to play especially when we’re already paying $100 for food and drinks. Overall, it was a fun night and good company always helps!

The chicken and waffles seemed like a pre-made waffle and processed chicken. The tacos just didn't do it for me. One really great craft drink and two really mediocre ones. I've been to one in Chicago and the ambiance was five stars. It was probably three times as big and a lot of divided up rooms which made a really cool. They seem to try to fit that model into a small space and it just doesn't work.

Food choices are limited & quality of food is mediocre at best. Drinks were hit & miss. Poor dirty vodka martini & old fashioned, good vodka tonic. Second time coming here & the main game area has been closed off for a private party on both visits. Great idea of having the activities in a restaurant but the quality of food & drinks will be the demise of this place. Too bad, there’s potential for the idea of various activities at a restaurant

The atmosphere was chill. We went to celebrate our friend's birthday and the service was pretty good! We played JENGA upstairs and that was fun. we didn't do any bowling but we saw it and we couldn't find the karaoke but we didn't look too hard it just wasn't immediately visible. Music was playing but you couldn't really hear it over everyone talking. We ended up leaving around 11:30 to go dancing somewhere else. It was cool.

Great place to catch up with friends. Arrived for happy hour and stayed much later. Service staff was very nice and attentive and did not rush us at all. Not a stuffy place. Liked having the music in the background. The younger crowd gravitated to a different side then we were sitting. Overall good experience would definitely return.

It was a great time!!! Made reservations for my BF birthday and his two kids my two kids and a few friends 8 total...it was chill, we played games, and board games. I never felt rushed it was cool because the kids could be loud. The food was good the prices were good too.

I really wanted to like this place but our service was absolutely terrible. We had a reservation for 730 but couldn't get seated until all of our party showed up. When we did get seated it took 15 minutes for our waitress to great us and bring us a drink menu. The waitress only returned sparsely and it was hard to keep the drinks coming.
