Rec Room at South Common
I wanted to host my birthday party at the Rec Room so a friend and I went to scope it out on Saturday afternoon.
The idea seems like a good idea in theory. That is the only pro I could find about this place.
You walk in and there is no real signage to explain where / what things are. We went into “Three10” restaurant and were told there would be a 35-45 minute wait, yet the place was literally half empty. We then went upstairs to “The Loft”. We found a table, it was still dirty but sat down none the less. Short story-service was mediocre, food was mediocre. There are only glasses of beer, no jugs. It was also extremely hot! So hot that it was uncomfortable. We wanted to play pool, but you need electronic wrist bands to do that (there are no signs anywhere, we only found out by asking a server).
We did try to play pool but due to the fact there are NO blinds anywhere it’s nearly impossible to play-see photo. We were able to get into “Three10” for supper and shared appies. The red head server at the bar(where we sat) was brutal. Directly in front of us she was arguing with other staff about transferring us. No one wanted to serve us which resulted in slow, crappy service. Our food was brought out with no side plates, no cutlery. Kind of hard to eat without these things. I mist give a shout out to the little Asian fellow who took over serving us when his shift started. He was great and picked up the pieces.
We stuck around until 7pm and by then it was slow, stuffy and crowded. I doubt we will be back.
Ps. It costs $70 an hour to bowl
