We ate lunch here and did the $20 games card deal where you pay around $30 for a meal and that comes with a $20 game card. Decent deal. The food was Ok here but certainly nothing special, and towards the low end of all the meals we had in NYC. The games were fun for the kids as they... More

I went here on a date with my bf since he told me it was such a fun place. We are kids at heart, so an evening of playing games and winning tickets sounded like a great time. I personally did not find the hostess in the 1st floor to be approachable. She didn't even tell us how to get... More

We decided to take a trip here to celebrate our sons birthday. Upon arriving we were told it would be a little wait. We went to wait in the game room(at the bar in the middle of the game room!) where it cost us $7 a soda. When our time came to be sat down for dinner we almost went... More

The service was absolutely horrible. No waiter was around to seat us, so we had to find our own table and pick up our own menus from somewhere. It took at least 5 minutes for a waiter to notice our table and take the order. We figured that the root of the problem: there was only one waiter that seemed... More

We spent the entire night in this place eating, drinking, and playing games, and then at 11:30 pm walked out on New Years Eve to watch the ball drop, if you haven't done that, then you MUST!!

Server was inattentive had to wait over 15 min for soft drinks and water. Meals were cold once they arrived. Women's room was disgusting and in desperate need of cleaning. To top it off they automatically add "18 percent gratuity for your connivence". Regardless of party size. What is that??? Certainly was not my convenience at all. So they are... More

Me and my 4 friends decided to come here on a Sunday to watch football… Big mistake! First of all, you cannot sit at bar and watch the games because the TVs are literally 90 degrees to the right and to the left… We did not want to strain our necks so we decided to get a table. We asked... More

I really don't want to write a long review...to sum everything up, customer service by our waiter was so bad the manager wrote off our entire bill for all 11 of us. The manager handled everything so professionally and I was so angry with the waiter at first that I feel bad that I was kind of mean to the... More
