Took my daughter here for her 21st birthday. It was awesome. So many fun drinks! The atmosphere was exactly what we were looking for. It was loud, packed with gamer nerds, and everyone was friendly. Our waiter played Cards Against Humanity with us, and told us jokes. All of the staff were cheerful, goofy, and helpful. We only ordered one... More

The attention to detail is fantastic: in-jokes on the menu items, old controllers used as curtain ties. Pretty good veggie burger, too, though the soup wasn't great. They could definitely use more veggie options on the menu, though the extensive range for customising the burgers was a plus (especially if you hate guac, which is standard on the veggie burger).

We went here for our son's 11 bday. It was recommended by a 16 year old from my work. First impression was the place was pretty dingy, could use a good cleaning, and some paint/stain on the wall/wood surfaces. We all had fun looking at all the game affiliated decor, but...after being seated, I made my way to the ladies... More

We went to this place for what it's known for. My boyfriend and I met two more friends for a fun night of food and board games. To start off, my food was horrible. I got nachos and they used horrible fake cheeze sauce, and the menu said they were made with cheese. misleading. They would not let me sub... More

The atmosphere is keyed to gamers and while we are not gamers we found the atmosphere interesting. The waitress was very helpful. We had the chile fries. An enormus portioned dish. Very well done. The fries were excellent and while the chile probably from a can, it was good.

A Gamer's Paradise!!! We need a place like this back home! The gaming menu rates the games on a variety of levels including length of play, difficulty, humor. We picked out mad scientist university and loved it. The 4 star rating is for the concept, homemade rootbeer and friendly staff. However, we didnt care for the food, which was overpriced... More

Fun place to go with a group of friends. Great food, amazing drinks but the service is a little slow. All around great time though. They have a fairly large menu of games you can play while you're there. The staff is super nice and create a super laid back atmosphere. Highly recommended for anyone with a small group of... More

AFK Tavern in Everett is a nice friendly space. I went there for the first time with a group of 9 friends for an afternoon of 'Ladies Only" board games. I made a reservation for a large table a week in advance via email. Two days later I was notified that we had a space set aside for us. The... More

Me and my wife went there at a last moment though to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary, as we are fandom geeks and a lot of friends have raved about the place. You need reservations for groups but if it's just 2 of you, you can usually can get a table easy. It took a few minutes for someone to... More

I can only give it a 4 because I didn't really get a chance to sample all of its charms. :-) My partner and I were on vacation and decided to check the place out. The gentleman who served us, Luke, was an incredible host. It was early in the day and the place wasn't exactly hopping but he had... More
