    I made reservations here for Mother's Day because I didn't think about it until too late & many places were full. So this would not have been the typical place I would go for Mom's Day BUT it turned out to be just fine! I would not have booked it if it were not for the Brunch menu! We had a great server & we all ordered from the brunch menu & enjoyed our food. I would recommend this place for the weekend brunch, not sure what the other food is like but I would try this place again.

    Loud inside but that is to be expected in a restaurant with an arcade. We sat at a table that is sandwiched between arcade games on both sides which is my only complaint.

    Stopped by for lunch before Bucks game with a kid. Food quality was very poor. Chicken nuggets were burnt and fries very soft. They claims they have arcade games available but more than half of them were broken or not operational. Would not recommend.

    The service is always great - after three visits recently, I am very impressed that service levels remain high. The food is very average. I had a veggie wrap that tasted like coleslaw inside a tortilla - nothing more. And it was recommended by the server as the "best" wrap". If the food would pick up a few notches - this would be the best pre and post game gathering in the Deer District.

    I read a review which stated the food was “bar food” and not to expect anything better. I disagree! The house chili was more like brisket chunks of beef- heavenly! The burgers were hand made “smashed” double decker burgers. And my spicy Bloody Mary had thyme in it! A wonderful surprise to have a chef who took a Bloody to the next level!

    There were 4 of us prior to a Bucks game so it was very busy. This is pretty much a bar that serves food so my husband and I would go back for a drink and maybe an app but not for dinner again.

    The venue itself was great, fun atmosphere and lots of space. We went for the Beyond Burger that was on their menu, but unfortunately it was taken off. Yet, online and with their QR menu it still showed it. That was a bummer.

    Had a reservation, but there was no one to assist us to a table. Online ad said there was a shuttle to Summerfest, but 3 employees weren't sure if there was one and where we might catch it. Once seated, food was excellent.

    The beer lines are skunky, we ordered several basic beers - spotted cow, Miller lite, etc. They all had a weird taste like the beer lines were dirty. We sent them back in case it was just something weird like dirty glasses or the first pours of the night, but no luck. We left without ordering dinner and went somewhere else, if the beer was that gross what would the food be like? Service wasn’t any better. We asked for low top seating to accommodate a disability that makes it difficult to get on/off the taller chairs and were flat out denied because they only low top they had was for 8 and we only had 5. They also don’t seem to have a grasp on their table service. When we got there the first person didn’t know about the reservation, the first server that came to the table asked if we knew what we wanted to drink and when we said yes they said someone would come take our order shortly then - super weird, why ask them not take our order? The whole experience was bizarre and underwhelming.

    Came for DD and the food was ok. Had the chicken parm and it was overcooked. Cheesecake was delicious as well as their garlic bread. Our female server was a little lacking but another gentleman took care of us much better. We believe he was the manager possibly and he was AWESOME!! Actually held a conversation with us. Talked about the hard work he was doing having to clean up after some inconsiderate college kids who have their tuition paid for by mommy and daddy, and left a HUGE mess. (Our words not his) He just told us it's his job and was happy to even have people in there. He was great and deserves a raise for the crap he put up with!! We will come again as he made the experience enjoyable and intend on trying some burgers next time.

    They were open, but only for food. Not their fault, it’s because COVID-19 sucks.
