Popped in here for a quick business lunch. Service was friendly and swift. Food arrived in an instant and was good quality. I had barbecue ribs - delicious. As this is the USA the potions are huge ( actually some of the largest I've seen for some time). I couldn't finish my meal - in fact they could do with... More

Surprisingly good selection on the kids menu. The atmosphere was good for the family, didn't feel out of place with the kids.

For a great Sunday brunch buffet, you can rely on Pinstripes with a wide selection of fruits, vegetables, seafood, roast beef, omelets made to order, and a sweet table, you will find everything you could want. The unusual plus are the bowling alley and bocce court.

We have visited PInstripes twice, and enjoyed our meal on both occasions. It is always busy and can be very noisy, but the food is wholesome and well cooked. The Front of House staff are unfailingly pleasant, polite and helpful, but the quality of the servers tends to be rather average. They are pleasant enough, but need training in how... More

We started at pinstripes for the food. Nice menu with lots of choices for the adults and the kids. The summer vegetables pasta special was delicious and the kids loved their cheese pizzas. We had a blast bowling and playing indoor bocce ball after the meal. What a cool place!!

I'm gluten-free and have a hard time finding gluten-free-serving restaurants with a good gluten free flour mix. I can tell you that the gluten-free veggie pizzas at Pinstripes are absolutely delicious. It was a great find for me. I haven't had a chance to go here for the bowling and bocce, but have only gone during lunch (the wait is... More

We only go to Pinstripes for their classy, upscale lunch menu. Under $10. gets you a great sandwich and soup and sides. The place can get packed, lots of people like the ample parking out front, the fresh atmosphere, outdoor dining option and the fast service.

It's an activities place so it gets very loud. The restaurant is OK and a little pricy for what you get. Our service was very good. The outdoor seating is pefered weather permitting. Huge facility. Good for family activities.
