    Wanted to find a place my friend and I have never been before to celebrate his birthday, and the first time seeing one another in 2 years (Thanks Global issues) Making the reservation was confusing, just wanted a place to eat. The idea of reserving a pinball game sounded cool, but $30 a person not so much. Though since it appeared to be the only option, we decided to go with it anyway. Food wise; other than the kitchen not knowing what medium rare is, the food was actually pretty good. Not blow my dress up good, but pretty good. The atmosphere was most chilly, though a little loud being right next to machines, but that was part of the reservation. All and all for the price and everything, it's not worth it. $115 dollars for a couple of burgers, fried potatoes, and sparkling soda water, nah. Good luck to you

    Outer Orbit has a great vibe with retro Pinball machines. We had a lot of fun with the games. The hosts are very friendly and always willing to help you out. The Pinball machines could connect with an app which made it super easy for us to enjoy the games. We also liked the fact that the food was very tasty. The cook was able to customize everything to vegetarian needs. We really enjoyed the noodles and the fried rice. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a good time.

    What a fun night. On a whim, my 18 year old son and I booked the pod with the Dr. Who pinball machine. The food is an innovative twist on bar food and quite delicious. The staff and (I think) owner were really friendly and accomdating. We felt very safe as the restaurant upheld the vaccine card law and everyone was masked when not eating. Our humble pinball skills were not enough to defeat the Daleks so we must return soon to continue the fight.

    We've just recently rediscovered this space and are loving it now. We really like their outdoor seating since we are trying not to eat indoors during the pandemic. It's comfortable and has great service. They cary Ghost Town on tap, which is one of our favorite brewers. The food is great and we can't wait to try everything on the menu. My wife's favorite item is the musubi with housemade SPAM. I love their chicken curry katsu.

    Food was food. However, we purposely came on a Sunday with our teens as the opentable profile said “18+ indoors Thursday-Saturday” (as well as the sign on the restaurant window) but when we sat down they said no one under 18 on Sundays either.
