I know it’s not exactly bar food, but it sure would be nice to have salad on the menu. Even just some thing relatively simple like a chicken Caesar salad.

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+

Upon arrival our table was reserved, clean and ready for seating. The food and service were outstanding. The servers were friendly and the service was prompt. All the beers we sampled were very much up to par and in some instances better than the larger more commercial breweries. The managements adjustments to and compliance with the Covid-19 requirements were outstanding. I witnessed a couple politely being asked to comply with the face mask mandate, before being allowed entry. We will definitely be returning and using Table Agent to book our reservation.

Variety of food and beers and non alcoholic drinks was a positive. I like the small bites over big meals. I made the reservation online which was super easy and convenient but when we arrived, we were not included in the table reserve list even though I received a confirmation. But, GC made the necessary adjustments to include us and we had a good evening. :)

Their food is quite good, especially for "bar food" with some nice offerings such as fried won-tons and empenadas. I did notice that their beer prices went way up ($9.50 for a pint), which is a bit too much. Will go back as their beer is really tasty.
