We have been here MULTIPLE times, but it seems the staff in the restaurant area are under-staffed or extremely slow. Both my friend, her daughter and myself had to send back food. Her burger was smaller than the roll itself, my onion rings were cold and my friends daughters salad wad grossly. The restaurant did comp our food, but the... More

Always a good time had at The Works. The kids love the arcade and go karts. I recommend booking your go kart times first, as the wait can grow. While waiting for the go karts, spend some time in the arcade. Kids have a ton of fun. I was pleasantly surprised that they actually earned enough tickets to get something... More

It's very simple. An unhappy staff usually means an unhappy work place. Our last two dinner visits have been terrible due to members of your wait staff just appearing to not care or wanting to be there. When you have to wait 15 mins to get drinks and then 30 plus mins for your server to return after your food... More

My husband and I come here sometimes to play in the arcade. Yes, we are big children! We love it... i recently organized a gathering here with about 20 people. I was a little disappointed that their menu had changed again. Not a whole lot that caught my eye. I decided on the BBQ chicken mac n cheese... and I'm... More

I didn't eat at this place, but the games are awesome. The go-karts are worth it alone. The arcade room is fun, lots of choices and bonus: the biggest claw machine you have ever seen! I haven't had that much fun with go-karts since I was a kid. Try it out!

Our waitress was super nice and helpful. We all enjoyed our entrees. The prices are very reasonable, generous portions. The kids loved the arcade, race cars and trampoline park.

We Came as a family to celebrate a birthday and we're not disappointed. The staff at the trampoline park were fantastic. After having some difficulties with an online coupon they ensure that we got extra time for the trouble. The arcade was great. Plenty of games for kids of all ages including adults kids. And the go cart was fantastic.... More
