“great nightlife driving range and bar”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

fun spot , gotta try it if you like golf! Get a few friends together and go. You will be up high , have a regular driving range experience, with your own table and waitress and a huge view of a huge driving range. Good food and rockin music makes for a fun evening with friends.

“wow, what a quick downhill slide to terrible”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Ok, so not much has changed, brilliant concept, anyone with any skill level can play this game, but WTH happened? Suddenly the service is HORRIBLE, not just bad, HORRIBLE. Having to wait while 7 or so high school kids talk amongst themselves as you have to check into 2 stations sets the tone.

Once we got our spot a waitress is on us instantly asking for a drink order. Umm, ok, can we see a menu? Place our orders, warm up and begin. No longer pay-per-game, it's no on a clock. $60 for 90 minutes for 2 people. Dang, that makes bowling alleys look cheap!

Well a game later and we don't have our drinks. 2 other booths are sat and have drinks. I go to the bar, find our waitress and she begins on how busy she is, they sat a really big table ho all wanted drinks, etc. (she has on a tray in her hands). Ok, someone else brings the drinks. Later some guy zips by, drops off my food order and disappears while we're playing. Umm, did anyone think to bring a plate? silverware? water? a napkin? ketchup? NOPE! Well, our waitress will be by soon, right? NOPE! I go back to the bar and get my own stuff. By now the food is cold and I couldn't tell if it was any good or not. My son said the cheese fries sucked compared to last time and my burger was just ok.

Lastly, I get my bill without so much as an apology, a 'sorry' or a discount. For the first time in decades, I left no tip.

Thankfully, the $60 game and $30 food sapped my players card so I will never have to go back. Too bad. I've been bragging on this place since it opened. No more. Top Golf is a rip off, and the service SUCKS.

“Fun and pricey”
Reviewed 25 September 2013 via mobile

The concept is great: change the stuffy image of golf and introduce it to families, kids, old and young in an entertaining and lively atmosphere. I get it and love the idea. In fact, I like the free clubs when you get your booth. The food is good, service is friendly and it's very popular, cool looking place too. The annoying part is the video pay screen/game selection screen. Most people these days are computer literate but these screens are frustrating and I've been there 3 times. There are many "games" to choose from but we still haven't figured out what the purpose of each game or how one game differs from another. An explanation would help (if it's on the screen, then please help us). The servers are always helpful and do it for us but it is still not very intuitive. Music is good, video of sports at each station good, drinks or buckets of beer all done in a classy way. The place is top notch, even if you go and don't hit a few balls, it's got a cool "sports bar" atmosphere inside.

“Great Fun!”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

One of the most fun things I have ever done. Golfers or non golfers will love this place. Everyone from the kids to Grandpa will have fun. The electronic driving range is just part of the fun. There's food and drink all brought to you by a staff member. You can even just watch the people your with and still have a blast. Go early in the morning for the best price.
