The place was clean and the staff were friendly. There seemed to be a large collection of games.However, I just cannot see how they will keep customers coming back with the high prices.

We stopped at GameWorks to let our 2 sons kill some time playing games while we shopped at the mall. We purchased them the 1hr unlimited game play and they had a great time. The staff was really nice.

I feel bad for this one server. She is always there working like a one woman wonder. She is overworked and really acts like she cares about the people. They need to hire more people to share the load. I like the pool and the 1/2 off prices after 2 pm. The brownie bites sucked but the food was alright.

On this day we had a server that stood in the host stand staring all the tables down, and doing nothing. Portion size for the money was not worth it. 11 dollars for a cocktail was ridiculous. Food could be better!

Gameworks is a fine place to take your children for a fun afternoon of video games or games of skill. However, the food is a different story. We came in to order wings and pizza, the food was ok but was overpriced. We wanted beer and were told that the beer tap system was being fixed. We were offered mixed... More

Took my 6 year old and he loved playing all of the video games. we got a 30 minute unlimited card each for $10 and this money was donated to a local charity. It does not include the carnival games where you win tickets, only the video games. It was a great way to get him to experience different types... More

The food was just ok and was overpriced. We had trouble with the free play cards and the machines kept going down

All the really cool games are broken down or there is a line. The noise is overbearing, you can't even hear your cell phone ring. The games all operate from a card, and there is a $2 charge just to get a card. Not worth it.

This was something fun we decided to do on our way out. We had time to kill before our plane and decided to try this place. It was a Friday afternoon, but not too busy. There were the expected number of machine outages, but we were never waiting for anything. We spent $25 and my daughter got enough tickets to... More
