Went for a quick lunch and was pleasantly surprised by the amount of delicious food we got. Filled us right up and enough to take home for later!!

Not a bad place to grab a quick bite. Slightly over-priced but slow service. Not a good place to go if your pressed for time. Manager is very good in handling concerns.

It was just ok. I had the Pulled Chicken Tacos and it was bland. The Naan and Bruschetta apps were good though!

We went for dinner. I did not enjoy the food. My friend had the tacos and they were average. I had the steak with mushrooms. The steak was ordered medium rare, grilled. It arrived rare and boiled (it looked boiled). The mushrooms on top of the steak were tasty, but there were also chunks that were not cooked which made... More

Stayed at White Oaks Inn last weekend with my hubby. Ate dinner at their "Play" restaurant. Staff was excellent with terrific service. There was live entertainment and his music was really good. We split a Caesar salad and had the pasta of the day. It was delish and the portion was huge for the price! My photo is of the... More

Pleasant evening with live music and good comfort food with a twist. A little too noisy but it didn't really affect the quality of the evening. Pleasant staff. Food nice but not memorable. Butter tart with ice cream was good...a tad too sweet but scrumptious

We really enjoyed the service and food at the Play restaurant. It is more casual than the Liv yet provides great American food with some healthy alternatives. It was a very pleasant experience.

Overall we have had great experiences at Play Urban Cafe. We ate here as the restaurant is part of the White Oaks Resort and we stayed over night. The menu has some fantastic options for vegans and vegetarians and also good options for people who may not be. My wife likes the zen burger and salads, I tried the fish... More
