Family atmosphere

Nice family atmosphere. Plenty for the children to do here. Lot of variety on the menu. The food was good but the service was a little slow.

I have tried twice now to go there on my lunch hour. Both times I was seated...and there I sat. No water, no waitress, nothing. Sit, sit, sit.....leave.

Went on a first date and sat at the bar. Decent house wine, GREAT bartender who was knowledgeable and gave great service. Wings to start- teriyaki. Crunchy yet tender- not breaded. It went downhill from there... I ordered the small plates sampler--- awful, inedible! It came with one dry black bean enchilada, dry stuffed mushrooms with a "stove top" type... More

Our family and friends have been visiting the works since they opened. The whole atmosphere is changing from the less than friendly kid staff to the filthy restrooms. Its a shame. Such a great concept and location. I hope things change.

When we walked in, I thought we lucked out, as it was a Friday night, the place looked pretty nice and was surprisingly empty. Now I have a theory on why it was empty. Service was sub-par. Burger was just okay. I ordered "The Works" burger, which featured a fried (though mine was undercooked and runny) egg on the patty.... More

We took our family and my son's friends to the works for my son's 21st birthday. The staff was very helpful and seated us almost immediately. Food was prepared quickly and the waitress took care of all of our requests quickly and with a smile. Will definitely go back again.

This is the first time we have been to The Works. We had 16 people in our group and we did make reservations. I wasn't aware that there were games to be played, races to be won, etc. The guys in our group were disappointed because there was a 2 hour wait for racing. The kids had a ball. Our... More
