We have not been here for years. We returned this past week to try it. We found the menu very limited. First we had the Caesar salad and the dressing was very good. My wife's fish and chips were okay, but my salmon was worse then I would make. It was dry as hell, and the rice tasted like it... More

I love the go kart addition, the gaming area is lacking. To many earn ticket games and not enough of actual arcade games. For an hour spent more time deciding what 3 or 4 games to play. The duck pin bowling was fun and the 7d game/ride was cool, but not enough to occupy a lot of time.

After waiting almost two and a half hours to drive the go karts we were disappointed in the employees operating them, I was not participating to actually "race" I was just doing it for the fun of it. However, my boyfriend is of course like the rest of the guys and want to race to win. There was a group... More

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.
