Fun atmosphere to be around for me, love the idea of getting some drinks and sitting down with your friends or family and having fun with a board game. The only problem for me is that I can't pick just one board game to play I want to play them all!

I've been going to GameCraft since they opened and they've always been amazing. Some of the best beer in South OC with good variety (it's not just IPAs!). The food is fantastic and the wait staff is passionate and friendly. You can see they really care about providing a great experience.

I was very impressed and happy with my experience at Gamecraft last night! :) I’ve been wanting to take part in a local trivia night, but been a bit hesitant as I’ve remained consistently cautious throughout the pandemic. Although now vaccinated, I’ve continued to only dine outside at restaurants/breweries, avoided going during busy time frames, and still wear my mask whenever I’m indoors somewhere. I was worried about how much distancing there would be and that I might potentially feel uncomfortable if I was seated too close to other guests. I put a note in with my reservation asking to be put on the exterior to try to socially distance as much as possible, though I wasn’t sure how much these additional notes would really be taken into consideration. We showed up before the other couple we were meeting to scope out the seating area and I was so thrilled when I saw that as requested there was already a table reserved in my name, exactly where I would’ve chosen for it to be, on the exterior, with plenty of distance from other tables. I know this may seem lame and not like a very big deal to some, but I hope staff know it really meant a lot to me - I felt completely at ease and distanced and had a wonderful time feeling a sense of normalcy and getting to partake in trivia! Huge thank you Gamecraft for really taking this customer’s requests/needs into consideration- you really delivered and I’m looking forward to stopping by again soon! :)

The food had amazing taste! Nachos loaded, pizza super thin crust but loaded. I loved the Crying Thaiger King and ordered the side sale to eat with it. Seems like it needs lettuce or tortillas. Flavors vibrant. Beers delicious! I liked my whole flight! :-) good happy hr beer and food. Service was friendly.. the patio is made comfortable with swamp cooler and fans... can’t wait to come back and eat inside. The brewery is super cool!! The gaming concept is unique. I give them an A+
