Horrible guest services! We were there for Sunday brunch in a group of 15 guests (kids included), food was average at best but I didn't minded it since I thought this is a kids friendly place... low expectations on the quality of food if you go to a "kids friendly place". First bad experience: Our kids were playing with another... More

They were ill-prepared for a large party and only had one waiter for a group of almost 40 people. He had an attitude problem and acted annoyed the entire night. He was frazzled and in way over his head, and should have asked for back up from his manager (who was no where to be found to support his staff... More

Pinstripes Northbrook used to be this very expensive but family-friendly, upscale bowling spot, but no anymore. The high prices remain but the service is utterly awful. In just one night tonight, the cut off our bowling mid-game, didn't bring an entree and excused us of never or ordering it and when we went to complain to Management, took our 1/2... More

I always thought of Pinstripes as the place to go for Bowling and Bocce with a little pomp and circumstance. They also offer options for hosting events, believe it or not. Northbrook in particular has private and semi private rooms as intimate to 30 all the up to 200 people. We recently performed for a fundraising event here and were... More

Wow. Boce ball courts, leather couches, great ambiance, great food. We had a great time. Think upscale. You've never seen anything like this before. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

So you are in the middle of bocce ball lanes and bowling. The brunch buffet is crowded by traffic running back and forth to the game areas. The buffet is delicious with lunch items as well as the omelettes made to order, waffles, chocolate fountain, etc. The concept is cute, but too confusing with children underfoot, etc

Was here with a friend for bowling and dinner. Cons: multiple kids BDAY parties. Kids running around at the lanes and even ran infront of me as I was releasing my ball. Servers don't seem to maneuver well with multiple large parties. Felt rushed due to the server needing my lane for another large party. Was finished with the lane... More

Let's just say I would go for Brunch every Sunday if I could! Great place for dining or if you just want to sit at the bar and have a drink. Very relaxed place to take the family to bowl or play Bocce ball. They have a great menu so there's variety to chose from. The staff are always polite... More

Had a fabulous meal with family - everything from sliders to salmon to chicken parm. Everything tasted great, including the mozzarella balls and spinach artichoke dip. Gave us free desserts and champagne during Valentine weekend. Next month going for their Sunday brunch which is another terrific value.
