It took 20 minutes after being seated before anyone even brought us water. 5 of us (3 kiddos under 8) had a reservation for 9:30am on Fathers Day for brunch. We had no less that 5 different servers waiting on us - just felt like we were constantly being passed around. And on top of that, both “adult” meals were dripping with grease. I’m all for a good greasy-spoon type breakfast, but if you order something with kale, you’re not expecting it to swim in oil. Overall, we were not that impressed with the restaurant side. That being said, we had a great time blowing $20 in quarters at the arcade. The table version of Pac-Man was a huge hit!
The service was really poor by our server. Ultimately that’s what stops me from giving a good rating
Once again the service was horrible. 45min to get first drinks.
We were there for our 15 year olds birthday. The upstairs arcade was closed which was disappointing.
amazing food, great service. We'll be back for brunch!!
My group didny feel welcome and when went to bathroom were treated like trash on my birthday wish the service was better
Great lunch and juice bar!
Great people and food but lively atmosphere with bowling in the background. Service was excellent. Fun experience overall.
You know what’s great about the Bloody bar? Room temperature shrimp.
If that doesn’t fit your appetite, get the wonder bread avocado toast. It’s store bought avocado spread, so you know it’s fresh and safe, but not good - Winner.
Also, they can’t split a bill?
One of our meals of 4 was forgotten. My chicken was bloody inside. No real compensation given . Just sorry. Not particularly busy either. Seemed like a big kids version of Chucky Cheese
Nice hosts and servers, good atmosphere, lovely food presentation, delicious drinks.
The daily special punch was not too sweet and looked elegant. There were some vegetarian options. The menu had a good variety to choose from.
I could not get WiFi. Sign in page never came up even though I was connected.
Fun night out with friends!
Way too loud for an older ladies get together. Very dissatisfied.
Great food but no advance warning that a private party was there. We went to bowl and have fun and were not able to. Feel like they could have called since we had a reservation. Thanks
Hipster hangout with interesting food, lots of grownup fun and a few free things for kids. Got pretty noisy as we left. Took three little ones there and liked that we didn’t have to worry about them making fun noise!
Food has been getting worse. Service is usually ok but this visit was really bad. We love bringing the kids and playing and having a meal and a drink but the overall experience has gone down hill over the last year.
Waitress at our table was terrible. Would have bought more drinks but she wasn't around. After we ate we attempted to play some games. Too many people, no games available as it was first come first serve (no reservations) so good luck. No waitresses to take drink order in the game areas so you have to muscle your way to the bar to get a drink. Overall the place left a lot of dollars in our pockets. We had to go somewhere else to get a drink. Best description is "organized chaos" Desperately needs wait staff in bar area and phone app to reserve games.
It was overly priced and multiple employees mislead me over the phone about kareoke so my birthday party was ultimately ruined
Great fun for our teens and adults enjoyed food and games
Our waitress was awesome, patient and accommodating. Our table was perfect for our large party, right by the dart-boards so everyone could play. The food was delicious and came quickly. Everyone had a wonderful time!
I made the reservation at 830 am as that was all that was available, which was fine. I have 2 kids and 830 was doable but when I got the confirmation call I asked if I could move it back a touch and was advised I couldn't, which was fine but when we got there the restaurant had been open 30 minutes and we were the ONLY people there. The food was mediocre and only a few options. My sons OJ was soured, my coffee was gross. I tried to get past all of this because it was Easter and I wanted this to be fun. I asked where the bowling was and the waitress said it didn't open till 11!! I feel like it should have been mentioned that a place that is known for bowling and an arcade didn't offer it during business hours. I tried to reach out to the restaurant before writing this review and they never got back to me. I wouldn't recommend it.
Cool space with good food and a ton of games(pinball, darts, bowling) to keep a party of any size occupied. The Lobster & Fries appetizer is outstanding. It's as good as it sounds. Also the Adult Whiskey Milkshake is ridiculously good. Our server Catherine was terrific.
First visit to the Punch Bowl Social and I was impressed. It has a great ambiance with games and activities throughout! The menu options were varied and interesting. The food was great and the staff was attentive!
We came to Punch Bowl Social as first time guests. We went there because it was listed as one of the top kid-friendly restaurants and needed a place to eat and hang out before the Nuggets basketball game. Our server Justin was one of the worst servers I have ever had. From the moment we sat down, he treated us like we were an inconvenience to him and was pushy to get us out of there. He would try and clear our plates and drinks before we done eating! Multiple times he placed our bill on our table before asking if there was anything else we needed or us asking for our bill! He even took my husbands drink off the table when he got up to go to the bathroom! Both times we asked him for additional drinks and he rolled his eyes at us. We had to ask him for a children's menu and he told us my child (who is 11) looked to old for one. Another server (very friendly) was the one who had to tell us where the table games were located so we could play a card game with my son. The concept of the restaurant is fun and they had great food and drink options. I think our experience would have been better had we had better service. But unfortunately as out of town first time guests-I don't think we will be back and will look for other options on our monthly trips down to Denver for our family.
Daughter was home from deployment and we took her to Brunch...everything was really good! Chicken was great but a breast, wing and drumstick for $16 is a bit steep...that is only a $12 plate at best.
Great food. We had brunch and lunch. Great drinks. Pimms cup and the Bloody Mary bar were a favorite. Bowling, ping pong, video games galore to play after your meal. I wouldn't hesitate to have a private party there either.
We came here for Saturday brunch for a birthday celebration. We were supposed to have 12 seats and a highchair. When we got there, there were only 11 seats and no highchair. Not a big deal at all as there was room to add these seats, however when we told our server, she was not very accommodating and appeared annoyed that we needed more seats, even though that was in my reservation. Unfortunately we had 2 people not be able to make it at the last second and again, the server was annoyed at this change as well. Adding and taking away chairs is not a big deal, but she made us feel as if we were a huge inconvenience. Our drinks took forever and she wasn't very attentive to getting us more drinks at all until we ordered food.
On another note the mimosas were tiny! The stemless wine glass was filled less than half full - about 6 sips worth. We quickly stopped ordering those.
Other than that, the other drinks and food was very good! The service definitely left a lot to be desired. Feeling as if you're an inconvenience when we are paying customers and really not that difficult at all really puts a damper on the dining experience.
Food was great. Service was great. Only surprised by where we were seated, back near the kitchen. We had reservations for over two weeks. May have viewed as a courtesy to us as we were older than the average customer. 😀
Overall, this place is great! Love the food, the drinks are consistent (and delicious) and the atmosphere is fun. I made reservations a few days early because it’s always packed, but so worth it. Valet parking is inexpensive and a nice, convenient touch. Only complaint is the staff often seem super stressed out, and we caught a few servers verbally upset/venting near our table which was kind of a mood kill. The employee who was running the bowling area was extremely rude which was a huge bummer.
We were disappointed that none of the games were available due to parties. This is why we had selected this restaurant for our small party. We had to go elsewhere for games.
Totally underwhelming food. Needs a much better brunch menu
Great place for large groups. Large variety on menu that they surprisingly do well with. Good healthy options but also typical bar foods but done well. Nice for birthdays, special occasions given the ability to have activites for the group. Also good for happy hours.
None of the servers care about patrons and this was obvious by how we were ignored and treated.
I cannot day enough about PBS. Great food, terrific atmosphere but the service - the service deserves more than the 5 stars I can give!!
I suffer from some atypical food allergies. I mentioned them to my server who took the menu back to the kitchen so they could tell her exactly what I should stay away from. But she didn’t come back. The Chef did. Michael sat with me for no less than 5 minutes going over ingredients in every dish I was considering. I’ve never had a restaurant go so far to insure my enjoyment of a meal.
I ended up choosing the OMFG GF Fried Chicken. The OMFG part was so accurate!! I couldn’t have the salad that comes with the meal and the other options were also filled with items I was allergic to so I had the fries which were great. My husband and our friend visiting from out of town both also had versions of the fried chicken - one had Chicken and Waffles and the other the A La Bama Chicken Sandwich and both were so impressed with how incredible the meals were.
Overall it was great! When we first got there, it turned out that some other party had stolen the table that was reserved for us by saying they were us. When it was discovered, the staff went above and beyond to rectify the situation. I really appreciated that! The server was on point, and very friendly and helpful. Food didn't really seem to match the atmosphere, but was still alright. The only thing that I could call out as a negative was the fact that two parties had rented out all but the restaurant for private events. If I had been informed of this when they called to verify my reservation it would not have been a big deal at all, but the fact that we did not find out until after we had given up our table and then had to wait a little over an hour to do anything was really annoying. Overall though, I will go back. I will just ask about the facilities being rented out first...
We chose Punchbowl Social (Broadway) for a work Happy Hour. One of our vendors had purchased a gift certificate for us. We had a great time! The food was delicious and service was great. Our table was ready at the designated time, and fun was had by all!
I had eaten at Punch bowl before when it first opened and was not impressed, but decided to give it another try since several years have passed and they have since updated their menu. The food is still lame. I would not recommend that anyone go here specifically to eat, but it is a fun place to hang out and drink and play games.
Upon entering and my first interaction with the hostess, she could not find our reservation. She ended up consulting a manager who assisted me further. Later, due to my error, I had about 5 more friends show up then I had planned. We asked to use some extra chairs, and then I was pulled aside by another supervisor and spoken to as if I was a child. She repeatedly expressed the need for the chairs to be returned no later than 7:50 and said that the table next to us had a complained. The table next to us had alway been the same distance from the reservation despite the addition and I later asked if we were bothering them and they said no. What angered the most, was that the
Our waiter was terrible. The food was mediocre. My reservation was mistakenly made outside...in January. They set us up in tables right by the front door so it was still very cold. There were too many people to enjoy any games. Parking is a nightmare unless you valet.
