Food was great and staff was exceptional. The facility was super clean with a variety of fun games for the kids. We will definitely come here again when we are in town. It was so much cleaner and nicer than Dave and Busters.

Went there with family for my grandson's birthday. Great pizza, lots of fun things to do for the kids and adults. They were busy but the building is spacious so, you don't feel crowded. Bowling was fun!
