Game Train pays so much attention to detail that you can tell it's a passionate local business. The staff is really friendly and helpful with boardgames, food, and drinks. The place has plenty of space with train themed box cars to play/dine in or tables/booths in the main room. Even the bathrooms are train-themed with large sliding doors and train aesthetics inside. They have a full bar with cocktails and a wide menu of food/drinks. Some of the food is a bit pricey but convenient when you're spending 2-3 hours+ playing board games and socializing. Great experience and glad we can support a local business with a strong pulse.
My wife and I really enjoyed our time at Game Train. The Dear You farmhouse ale was tasty, the shepherd's pie was full of meat and veggies, my wife found that the Buddha Bowl was vegan, and there were tons of games to choose from. Such a large number of games can be intimidating but they had a well-written BOOK of all the games separated by difficulty level and listed player count and length of time to play. The steampunk theme and screens that made it look like you were actually riding a train made for a really neat atmosphere.
Have a drink. Eat some food. Play some games. Great place to grab a board game and hang out with friends. You pay a small free to try as many games as you want. I'm so grateful to have a way to try out these expensive games before purchasing them, and this was a fun atmosphere to spend time with our friends. They also have a great selection of games for sale.
This was just a fun discovery. The staff were very helpful in showing us the ropes, and we really enjoyed getting to play a new game over some drinks. We will definitely be back!
Great food, try the pizzas. Interesting idea on a dinner get together. But something about playing board games while eating, and knowing dozens of people have touched their food, and the same game pieces makes this hard to swallow. Great idea for the coffee shop, or bar but while eating??? Not so much.
