Fun place, family friendly

Food is not that great, but comes in satisfying portions. High anxious energy not good for sensitive constitution but if you have kids and can tune out distractions you will like this place. I like it but I would never take a date or go alone, only with family. Accommodates large groups also.

We haven't been here in a year or two because of the last time we visited. Gave it another try on a rainy day over Christmas break. Place wasn't remotely staffed correctly. Had to wait for a table when 50% of the seats were open. Once seated had to wait a while for a drink order. Food came out average... More

My experiences at The Works haven't been good the past 3 times we've been there. Husband and I eat at a table in the bar area when we eat here. Service is always very very slow. The server is also bartender and they aren't too attentive to table service. We haven't been there for a while because of slow service.... More

We were in the area for my son's baseball tournament. It was a great place to take the team - the boys and siblings could play games, ride go karts, and the parents could relax in the bar. They were able to seat a party of over 20 and handled the large party with ease. Food was great - big... More

My husband and I frequent the Works. We usually go for dinner and drinks, not the game room or the arcade. I feel like they are missing their market a bit. While the location started out as a Dave and Buster's type place with a more kid-friendly vibe, their bar area has been redone and their menu is more extensive... More

We came almost every Wednesday because it's 1/2 off the arcades. We would eat dinner here as well. The food is great and the guy that worked at the bar was excellent. He remembered us and always came over to talk to us. We'll be back next summer. It's great for something to do during the week.

My husband and I went to The Works for gaming, go carts, and dinner. We had a lot of fun playing in the game room, but were unable to drive the go carts due to my shoe choice. You must have closed toe shoes to drive the go carts. We just had appetizers for dinner. I can highly recommend the... More

We only live less than a hour away from The Works, but this was our first visit. What a great family attraction. The arcade is amazing, the ball play area was a huge hit for our son and was reasonably priced. He was too small for the go carts but we ate at the Pit Stop Café which allows you... More

This is a big giant warehouse converted to a restaurant in an adult gaming center. My husband ordered the brisket sandwich and fries. The sandwich was really good but his French fries were like what you get at a McDonalds meaning they were old. I had ordered the bruschetta pasta with chicken which was okay. It was sitting in a...

Obviously this is great for kids with all the games and activity areas. Price for activity area is not bad considering it is for unlimited time. Kids food available in activity area but the main restaurant also has a great kids menu and just inside the entrance you will find some great cupcakes for sale. Perfect place to spoil the... More
