REVIEWS OF Punch Bowl Social Schaumburg IN Illinois

Imran Kazmi

Attended a private party in the downstairs section of the restaurant. I would definitely recommend this as a venue for a party, shower, reunion or company outing. Punch Bowl offers several different food and beverage options to meet whatever your needs may be.

Raime Ann Vandermyde

Amazing food and great drink selection. Staff is always incredibly hospitable and knowledgeable and just all around fantastic. I have clients who travel from all over the state, and even a few from out of state, to utilize my services and I love having Punch Bowl Social nearby to take them to after we finish our business

Gema Calvo

Woah! Service tonight was out this world ... everyone was so kind and friendly-on top of everything! Food is good & so many fun activities! Such a gem in Schaumburg! A must guys!!!

Heather Deane

Went for a bachelorette party and had a blast

marisa delgado

This place was awesome. I am glad I decided to have my 21st here. The wings were so good and so was everything else on the menu. It was a very unique menu but I enjoyed the different options. The drinks were amazing, adult shakes was just the right amount of alcohol and sweetness. I love the atmosphere of the place and there's so much to do. We were almost not able to bowl because my nephew was too young but the manager understood our circumstances and let us for the last 45 mins. Service is just incredible and I appreciate the person working the shoe rental , he was so fun and attentive! he even showed us magic tricks. I will never forget this birthday, going in the books thanks to PBS

Beth Schwartzberg

I had my daughter's first birthday / husband's 40th surprise party here. My event was incredibly easy to plan and pay for, and everyone was very helpful! The food was delicious and everyone had a great time with the games. We will definitely be back!

Donald Seilheimer

Place is alright, not overly exciting especially compared to the other entertainment around the area

Vanessa Dosie

Oh my God I had the best time at this punch bowl Schaumburg Social Club. It was so much fun games upper Galore from the top to the bottom. I'm not really a bread eater but their bread is delicious. The staff is great everyone is so helpful and happy. if you just want to do a girls day out on a couple stay out I will suggest the group of you go to this place there's regular card games there's bowling there's all kinds of game Pac-Man pool you name a game it's there from board games and on period a great place that you can enjoy with family friends holidays birthdays celebrations anniversaries just to kick it.

George Gilmartin

Lots of activities to do and good specials different days of the week. Great place to go for work outings or bigger parties.

Antwyan Murray

Was a Sunday so it wasn't busy at all. Our server consistently checked to make sure we didn't need anything during dinner. The food was amazing. Added chicken to my mac & cheese. They use a nice juicy rotisserie chicken. The rosemary seasoned fries were delicious. The nachos were also, but could use more cheese. The water taste like tap water, could use ice in the glass bottles. The male bartender on the 1st floor was operating rather slowly for it to be as empty as it was. And was nonchalant until he got back to his buddies I assume that were drinking on the other end of the bar. Towards closing, the bartender upstairs did not inform us of "last call for alcohol". We were all disappointed because we wanted shots before we left for closing. Oh....and for some reason the floors on the second floor and upstairs were sticky. I would give this place another shot. Had many group activities to indulge in.

A Messner

They ran out of chicken ! Make more?

deana kaluza

Pretty cool place for people in their 20s. I went there for a friend's 30th birthday surprise party. We had our own roped-off private area in the basement. The buffet food was okay.

Patrick Uchmanowicz

It's good, great vibe, hot folk everywhere , most of their punches are too sweet for me, but there was one that was pretty refreshing I just can't remember. I was a wee bit tipsy

Jordyn Fabiano

BEST Fried Chicken ever!!!! Amazing atmosphere, excellent service, delicious food! Definitely recommend the Shake for the King!

Carlos Ramirez

Service was slow on a non busy night. Went to the Chicago Fulton market location, and was expecting the same, but I was disappointed. I would Definitely recommend the Chicago location instead of the Schaumburg.

Nick Sall

Music here is great! Shout out to your corporate DJS for throwing it down and keeping the place lively and bumping...NOT!

Denise Brabec

Went for a reunion. Had all the games from the 80s. Had fun and service was good.

Scott van Slee

Did not know this place existed up until few weeks ago. Great atmosphere with good games and a nice menu. Friendly and accommodating staff! Only downside was the wait for food, as we came on a Sunday evening with few others there and waited over an hour and a half to get food. We had a party of 9, so no small feat, but I've been places that got parties of 10+ out in an hour. Regardless, I will be back for drinks and games!

Lynn Hardy

The best damn place I have been in years!!! Great food! Great staff! Countless activities! 10000000% recommended. Too bad we don't have one here in grand Rapids.

Simon Bell

Good food and games! Great for after work parties. Each bar has its on tab as do the games so be mindful. Would be much better if you could open one tab and let everyone use that instead of 3 different bills.

David Peltier

Food not good for price charged

Beth Quigg

Went there for my Bday. Great Service!

Mark Donahue

Awesome drink menu. Great food. Service is a bit slower than usual with larger crowds. Fun place!

Vinthar Garcia

I absolutely love this place! The food is very delicious and super fresh. The upstairs bar is very cool. Unlimited free board games and a fire place

Tricia Kane

Great venue for work party or get togethers.


Had a great time!!

Yoichi Takanami

good foods and great staffs!!

Mina D

Surprisingly great food and drinks too. Games are not as awesome as I thought it would be though. More like bar games. But love coming here with friends

Denis Ryan

Really good food and drinks.

Mike Sorensen

Great atmosphere and food!

Gian Bulleri

We had our first experience at this establishment on a Saturday afternoon and I must say that I will recommend it to family and friends. The food was great and the options of entertainment were larger than my imagination . The menu choices are quite elaborate but I would like to thank Adam our server for being a class act the whole time we were there and helping us with our choices and providing awesome customer service overall. If you go ask for Adam. Didnt have the pleasure to speak to any of the other staff but they seemed to be on top of their game too. Overall great time.

Valerie Jardon

This place is huge and has lots of fun things to do. Great party destination and the food was good too.

Mary T. L.

Fun for large groups. Basement area was very dark. So dark that it was hard to see the menu.

Scott Steely

This place is not worth the hype. The food was average, the board games honestly feel gimmicky. The four ancient arcade games in the basement look like they came out of someone's garage.

Alexis Leung

Loved it. Booths are a bit snug but otherwise manageable. Great for groups and bowling was a great way to work off the meal.

Oscar Thompson

Really good food, decent drinks, several activities to choose from! Great place for a date or to hangout with some friends.

Najuan Mack

This restaurant/entertainment venue was actually really cool. Along with outstanding bars in each of the 3 floors of activities, the eclectic choice of games makes this place a standout. Just to name a few, you can play ping pong, bowling, giant scrabble, giant jenga, table shuffle board, foosball, darts and numerous classic video games and pinball. My only deal criticism of the place is the drinks were a bit short for the price. They were more along the line of mixology drinks. They were good, just short. Other than that, this is a daters paradise and a great venue for a party.

Ravishankar Sivasubramaniam

Check out the Weekend Brunch. Hidden gem in schaumburg for good food. Highly recommend

Carolyn Cacal

What a great time. Brought my kids there for spring break and we had such an awesome time. We didn't realize we were there for 5 hours. And I have teens. They weren't asking to leave. My husband and I were impressed with the staff. From the bartenders to the games people. All so helpful and friendly! Not at all a kiddie place. Great for team building.


Awesome food & ambiance! Everyone was super friendly. Just be prepared to pay for almost EVERY game there starting at $10 /hr. Darts? $10 Ping pong? $10 Karaoke was $25/ hr. which is kinda pricey too. Plus the games that were free were closed off because of a private party, like the only bags game there, which was a bummer. It is nice to have such a variety of games, but after a while it adds up. I understand charging for bowling & arcade games but darts & ping pong should be included if you eat / drink there. Though it may have more to do with crowd control. Also, on the weekend Jenga was always taken by a group. There were many board games to choose from so at least that was always available. Either way, it's a cool place. Maybe one day they can afford to make some more of these games free but their overhead must be pricey too.

Fred Lechuga

Fun place. I definitely need to go back and have a look around on the different floors and games.

Mariann Mapes

We had our company party here and it was fabulous. The atmosphere was fun the staff was amazing. They catered to us like we were the only customers in the whole wide world. I would highly recommend coming for any event that you have and definitely just to get out have a good time

Brian Gusak

Cool place. Nothing else like it around.

Olivia Witek

My husband and I went to Punch Bowl Social with another couple to celebrate a birthday. The drinks we enjoyed along with the biscuits and jam - which is a nice original touch - and the atmosphere was nice and pleasant but thats about the end of our experience. We did not like the food, the server was not very attentive, and when we finally ate and decided to go upstairs, we were unimpressed with the "game area". The bowling looked fun but with only a few lanes, the wait was long. There isnt enough to do there on a busier evening so we awkwardly stood around until we left. All in all, i would not go back. It was very expensive, and underwhelming.

Christina O'toole

Food is mediocre. Had the French Dip with chips. Chips were gross. Sandwich was decent. If going on the weekend don’t count on being able to play most of the games as they are all located in the private party area. With that being the case they should not advertise those as options instead advertise them as being included in the room rentals. Very disappointed and will not be back.

J Cortez

One of the more creative bar scenes I've seen. Multiple levels, bars and activities. They have vintage arcades namely NBA Jam. Also, bowling, bags, ping pong, bacci and more.


I ate here several times and the food was very well prepared each time. The menu has a great selection of food as well as drinks. The place is huge and I never had to wait for a seat which is always a good thing when you are really hungry. There are activities upstairs that I never tried but if I came with or met up with friends this place would be easy to spend hours eating, drinking and enjoying games. My biggest complaint is they don't have one where I live!

Mark Crutchfield

Very lively atmosphere. Upstairs area is great for company or other large group parties. Has it's own large bar, plenty of hang out space, huge 8' long foosball table and 4 bowling lanes.

Jeffrey Clark

Bowling is expensive and errors out often. Food is good, but really expensive.

Mike Cisonno

The atmosphere is really cool, the food is good, but damn is it pricey. You essentially need to take out a second mortgage if you plan on staying there past happy hour.

Mark Wirth

Great layout. Had a great time with the Retired NFLPA.

Tim Medema

Fun place, food definitely needs work

Ron Brown

Great, neat place!

Kari-Ann Ryan

This is a great place for small and large parties. I have worked with Michele several times for small gatherings and she never disappoints. The managers, bartenders and all staff are always great! We always have an awesome time making some great memories. I highly recommend this location for a fun time and especially for an event/party location. The Karaoke rooms are awesome!

Damian R

Mixed feelings.. Chicken on a waffle with jalapeños maple sauce great idea, but only half of the chicken was great, chicken breast, the otherr half dark meat, not so good, good fries, average pizza, below average macaroni and cheese... Manager and services nice,... Just mixed feelings

Matt Hovey

Really enjoyed our evening here. Personal service was provided by Chef and front of house manager. The food was good and the menu offers something for most tastes. Games made sure the kids want to come back. Next time we plan on making time to bowl.

Sophie Spence

Came in a couple days ago with some friends. The drink menu was interesting, and I was feeling adventurous that night but couldn’t figure out exactly what to drink. Thankfully the bartender there George was hearing in on the conversation and jumped right in to help. His energy, and concern to help us made us feel like we made the right choice to come here! George made me a jalapeño cucumber limeade that was on the non-alcoholic side on the menu, but added tequila to it. Delicious! And he made my friend a high fashion which was amazing. My friends and I will for sure come back for the service. Drinks are a bit pricey though.

Harold Perry

Ok and cold pretty nice no tables.

Angelena Braxton

Fun social club with fun, games, karaoke rooms, and more!

Elisio Sapata

Lots of large screens, long shuffle board, darts, pinball, bowling, cards, board games, long foosball table, jenga, to name a few games. There are lots of craft beer options, bar food and lots of different nooks and corners to hang out in. Service is friendly and helpful. Come with a large group and enjoy.

Jackie Zange

Creative menu with scratch made food and cocktails in an inviting atmosphere.

Sunny Sharma

A fun place for small or large groups. Plenty of free or pay games available throughout multiple levels. I have gone here for birthdays also large work Christmas parties. It's definitely a fun suburban place

Izabela Dalla Valle

Had a kareoke and ping pong event the other night. My friends and I had a blast. Appetizers and punch bowls delicious. Rooms were clean and service was awesome.

Jared Maymon

Some of the best fried chicken I've had. Wicked good crispy potatoes, and a killer white gravy.

Donato Loleng

Nice, casual, fun gathering spot.

Boliviana H

Friendly and loud. Bowling too!

Jennifer Plath

Unique menu, quality food and good service! Plus a lot of fun activities and some of them are free.

Purvik Patel

The food was great. Staff was great.service could have been a better for a Monday

Gary DeGregorio

Interesting place we tried for the first time. The longest foosball table that I have ever seen!

Rick Schmidt

Disorganized and poorly maintained. My kids attended a party in the "Cellar". The scoring system for the bowling wasn't working properly and when 3 different employees were asked to help, they each walked away without even trying to help. Surfaces were dirty and the entire place looked like a mess.

Rachel Pryor

Went for a holiday party. The staff was very friendly and it was a great venue for a big group.

Emily Banks

great place to hang out with friends and play some darts or shuffle board. They also have a few bowling lanes, very nice. Beats going to the bowling alley

Michael R

Great wings, wish they just had a traditional buffalo but the sauce I had was decent. Beer list is great and if you're feeling adventurous ask the bartender to make you their favorite cocktail. A couple of them like to experiment and make up their own which is always nice to try out something new. Definitely reccomend going during happy hour as food can get a bit pricey for what you get.

Rich Jezierny

So much to do, the food is awesome and the staff is very knowledgeable in the beers they have on tap!

Erwin Kehrt

Real fun place to hang out with a group of friends. They have a bunch of different things to do like bowling and other table games. And the food was delicious, a little pricey but worth the money. They had a live DJ who was doing a great job.

Shawn Henry

The token credit card machine down stairs broke and we could not charge the kids cards. The manager tried to fix it for like 20min but could not. He than gave both my kids $20 game cards!!! Super cool. And the food and drinks were just as great!

Chadd Peck

Great menu, unique dishes

Sudki Abdullah

Very cool place. Nice atmosphere. Lots of games to choose from. The wait staff is very friendly. The gaming staff lost a star for me. Trying to reserve bowling or any other activity requiring to do so was like trying to navigate at the DMV. They expect you to know what to say and were not very pleasant. Our group of six waited 2 hours to bowl. Once we got on the lane, turned out it was not a real lane with oil, and the pins are connected to strings. Still fun, though. Worst part was that your game has a time limit. The staff did not inform us we would have a limit on playing time, so the 6 of us bowled 9 frames and one person threw a ball on the 10th. Kind of felt robbed, to be honest. Fix that issue and you get the 5th star. Food and drinks were great. Will definitely be back, but probably won't bowl.

Lauren Reizner

Very nice employees, however the hiring process is less than satisfactory. Was told how perfect i was for the job and they would reach out to me with my schedule and they never did. I followed up several times where they either didn't respond or they told me that it was still being worked on. Their communication skills are lacking. If they weren't interested they should have said that instead of offering me a position and stringing me along for weeks.... I could have spent that time applying elsewhere instead of being offered something and waiting around for them. Update: It absolutely was the Schauburg location and i would be happy to forward you the email chain between me and Hailey K. She was my interviewer and there are numerous emails between us. As said above, I would be happy to supply them to you.

Korey White

The food, drinks, and atmosphere were all solid. Can't really say the drinks were worth the price, but the food definitely was. That being said, it's pretty much elevated bar food, so it may not be worth it for some.

Matthew Collazo

I had a really fun time on a Saturday night here. Good atmosphere, lots to do (including bowling), and plenty of specialty drinks that are fun to try (they've got funny names). I saw a younger crowd throughout the night, it was consistently busy, and also pretty loud (they play loud music). Note that sometimes the additional areas are rented out for special events, so you night not be able to enjoy rooms or events like bowling on some Saturdays.

glenda dike

Lots of fun especially the Karaoke room. I plan to visit again.

Diamond Diamondness Hamilton

I had gone once before and had a great time. However last night, it wasn't a fun as I remembered. Maybe because it was very crowded this time as opposed to the first time that I went, but the staff seemed to move slowly. We only ordered fries to eat, they weren't very seasoned. We also asked for ranch dressing to dip the fries in. The ranch tasted very watered down. When I asked why, the waitress that Punchbowl social makes their own dressing. Maybe they shouldn't lol. The same with the buffalo sauce that my friend ordered. Just not flavorful at all. I didnt eat food the first time I went so I can't compare it to a previous experience. I heard the food was good, so maybe it was just whoever cooked last night.

Karla Vargas

2nd Time I come here to eat in and absolutely love it!!! Delish food as always. My new favorite is the carnitas tacos!!!

Karllucc i

Awesome Experience. Great service!!

Jeremy Waters

Really fun with a large group upstairs! Reserve your bowling ahead of time!

Nicholas Girka

Fun atmosphere

Flo Perez

Awesome service! You can taste the punch (for free) before ordering a full serving! Free games, some are $10, there's bowling and shoe rentals, food is pretty big portions, and drinks are decently priced. Great place to have a chill time or to bring a group of friends and have a fun night. Parking is free and there is plenty of it. This place is huge!

Karen Serantoni

first time there last in June 23 2018. Atmosphere is great. I ordered the Golden Chicken Pot Pie, I was disappointed in that the base of the this pot pie was more like soup, not a creamy texture. My husband ordered the Knockoff Burger had too much sauce on it and the burger slide right out from the buns. Next time we'll order something else

Sean Moran

Good food and drink but the bowling in the basement can be super janky. We constantly had to get help because the balls wouldn't return and the pins weren't registering.

Tamar Ingleby

A pretty unique place to hang out and meet up with friends, not just a bar. An extensive drink menu. Worth trying if you’re looking for something different to do with friends.

St. Rebel

Great atmosphere. I was able to enjoy an afternoon with my family.

Reyna Celedonio

This place was really great and a lot of fun. I met up with a friend here and although there weren't many people there (it was a Sunday night) this place would be great for a birthday dinner or a family night. I look forward to visiting again with a group of people

Christopher Walenga

Nice choice of cocktails and punches, but bowling and other fun stuff fills up fast and is expensive

Eli Alonso

I give this place a three stars due to me and my coworkers going in around 9/9:30 my fiancé and I got there around 9:20 we were both hungry we ordered food and drinks , food was great we just both didn’t like the rosemary fries for our taste . Due to some of the employees being under 21 they were asked to leave at 10 pm . unfortunately that was the case for me as well, the manager I assume went around asking for everyone’s ID’s I let him know if I could finish my food he said sure and then proceed to check everyone else’s after he was done he was just watching the group and waiting for us who were 21 and under to leave . All the employees understand that there are rules to follow but no need for the manager to sit there and watch us every second . Made me feel uncomfortable to eat my food because I felt rushed . The bartender es amazing! No complaints he reassured me that I could finish my food without a problem . My coworkers and I are not from the area it’s a halfway point for most of us and about 20 mins from our actual job some people came from Chicago to only be there for 30 mins and other came from Gurnee area to also be there for 30 mins as well because of the 21 and under rule . Felt like a waste of time and money to me . Unfortunately we will not be going back .

Karina Powell

This was a unique environment with a lot of fun games and activities. The set-up is pretty great with three floors and different activities available on each (with a bar on each as well). However, they get very crowded and, with limited availability of games and activities, everything filled up quickly and most games are only available on a first-come, first-served basis, so you have to stalk the people playing any particular game of interest in order to get a hold of it. The food was pretty good, but much too pricey for the quantity and quality. The same was true of the drinks--they were expensive and the mixed drinks were pretty watered down. When I asked the bartender what drink she could make with a particular ingredient, she made an old fashioned-sized drink filled to the brim with ice and then charged me $18 for it.

Karl Allen

We have a great experience. Valentin an Aimee we're helpful and very friendly. We loved the atmosphere and the building was fantastic along with the food. We will be back.

Latecha Mitchell

Great spot ,,service wasn't so hott not sure if I go again

Ilsa Lundy

Clueless staff. Around the corner from my office but wont step foot in the place again or recommend. If you cant figure out the answer to a basic question regarding an offer you provided, why not at least try to figure out before you dismiss a paying customer.

Jesse Bley

We had a group that came in at 11 on a Saturday night. The service was just plain bad. There were no servers still working, the bartender acted annoyed and bothered to serve us, and we went to the bar a couple of times and there was no bartender there at all. Just not good. At least pretend to not hate your job.

Mike Stelzner

Food is pretty good, but the bartender (definitely one of them), has an attitude and will try to "shame" you if you order something "cheap"...(hint, if you don't like a beer product don't offer it). Don't shame customers that come in to pay...Nonetheless, I don't need to be chastised for ordering a beverage.

Robert Brestle

Pros: - the homemade salsa is incredible! PLEASE SELL THIS SEPARATELY!! - lively atmosphere - friendly service - good drink selection Cons: - the kitchen was backed up and took us a little longer to get our food - the burgers are overpriced for the patty size and how dry they were Overall very excellent! We'll be back.

Madeline Vodrazka

Fum environment, great food and drinks, and super kind and accommodating staff!

Kevin Cox

Had a blast, drinks were pricey but had a great time

Georgina Nellums

First time here and i had a great time

Mike Beck

Awesome evening out with family!

Greg Czaykowski

Great for events. Alots of room. Great service.

marc mota

Great place to hang out and have fun. The food is definitely different. Mostly grass fed and organic.

Dave S

1st time at this place and headed to the cellar because of a party. My initial impression was what a man cave. Bowling, ping ping, bags, bocce ball and a variety of other classic games. Had a very nice time and the food also was quite memorable as well. Drinks were certainly pricey but I'm sure overhead is outrageous. This place will have enough to keep people entertained as long as your wallet is fat.

Meagan Deiss

Punch Bowl Social has a really great atmosphere. The design, and look of the place is very hipster and feels cool. I took off a star because the food wasn't all that great despite their claims of a famous chef creating their recipes. We got the nachos (which had cauliflower, and goat cheese which was weird), and the fried chicken. The fried chicken was actually really good, but it was just a big bowl of chicken with no chips or side added. Our waitress was new, so even though she kind of messed up sometimes during out visit I didn't mind. I cut her a break since she had only been there a few days. Everyone was nice, and friendly.

Jared T

Had a good time there but a little spendy. $80 for 2 ppl

Christen Bergstresser

Absolutely wonderful experience! Jacob provided excellent service and we couldn't get enough of the biscuits and jelly! Our group enjoyed some kids meals, appetizers, and full size meals including the mac n cheese, chorizo fries, chicken sandwich, and more! Highly recommend!

Leslie Miranda

Extremely rude service! We visited this place for the very first time thinking it was going to be a good experience. Our server Deep not only had ZERO patience for us (again, first time guests) he kept tapping his pen, kept trying to walk away, basically had his back to us the entire time, once we finished ordering he SLAMMED his server book closed and walked away. We didn’t even get to enjoy our drinks. We left immediately after. Will never step foot here again!

Nicholas .Girka

Really neat place Great staff. Really 4 1/2 stars. Food was good but not great

Dr. Steve Brule

Came in from out of state on Thursday approximately 10:00 p.m. We decided to walk over from the nearby hotel that we were staying at to have one cocktail. When we went to the bar, we were told that they close at 11:00 and already had last call. Lost our business for the 4 days we were in town.

Paul Decker

Service was horrific. Food was okay. Lost orders. Our party order food and 14 received their food at the same time when the waitress came out to tell the other 3 in our party that they were out of lobster. Why wait???Truly poor service. 2 of the 3 received an alternative selection 15 minutes later and the 3rd took more than 30 minutes. The rest of the party had already finished dinner.

Siray YaYa

Amazing spot to get great food, AMAZING beverages, and have some fun. I recommend some bowling and any punch bowl of your choice! This is THE go-to spot for an amazing time out. hands down

Piyush Gandhi

A great place to hang out any day. Also if you want to have a casual party or social gathering our entertain some demanding guests

Brian Tobin

My son and I stopped by for lunch to kill a few hours bowling between soccer games at Olympic Park. He has a laundry list of allergies. When we were seated by the hostess she asked if he needed a children's menu. I told her no he has a lot of allergies. She informed me they have gluten free options to which I thanked her and informed her they were beyond gluten. Waiter came took our drink orders, brought our drinks, took my food order and said OK when I told him we had food for my son. A couple minutes later he brought out some sort of roll to gnaw on. Then Jose the magical manager showed up at our table. He said we don't allow outside food and informed me my son couldn't eat when we prepared for him. I informed him of the allergy issues to which he shrugged off my response until I asked him why nobody informed me before they took my order. I informed him our plan was to bowl for the next 2 hours. He eventually offered to comp the bowling, but I told him I wasn't interested. I was not looking for a handout. A restaurant that has a sign stating Safe Place posted should take care to realize there's a lot of families carrying around epi-pens at all times. Not because they enjoy it, but because their child's life depends on it. Now I understand I'm at fault as well. We had his food out in the open, mentioned allergies to the hostess and waiter, but didn't specifically ask if he would be allowed to eat it. As soon as Jose left, my son asked if we could leave. I got my food to go, paid, and we went bowling at the alley in the mall. Pretty bad experience, but I guess it is a reminder to ask rather than assume a restaurant cares if there's anyone with sever allergies. Thank you for making an 9 year-old cry. I know he needs to toughen up, but shouldn't be due to the way a restaurant treats their customers. Food: It was good. Probably would have tasted better in the restaurant. They've asked me to DM them my phone number so they can call me. I in response asked them to DM me the number I can call to talk to their manger/owner.

Caroline West

Great food and service! They also have fresh pressed juice...something for everyone here

Cade Whitaker

I have been here 5 times and every time the food has been phenomenal! Staff is knowledgeable about the whole menu and also the drink menu. The have specialty punch that has been created every month I believe. There are three different levels you can hangout and socialize. It's a great place for whatever you feel like doing that night, socializing, drinking, and most importantly having fun with whoever you go with.

Austin Powers

Had a great time here! Karaoke room was a blast!

Marco G D'Aiello

Great place for private parties!

Dominique Higgins

Great place to take teens and play games and eat.

Jennifer Pearson

This place is really poorly managed. We had a party coming and called to let them know we were coming a few days before. They didn’t even bother telling us that practically the entire place was rented out for private events and there was nothing to do except bowling. So we bought a lane for an hour and bowled. At the end, at 8, we decided to bowl for another hour...we’ll apparently the last reservations for bowling end at 7:30, which again, no one mentioned. So we sat and drank for a little bit on the EMPTY bowling lanes, only to be kicked out at 8:30 for a private event. Definitely would not waste my money at this place that sounds fun but ends up being extremely boring because you can’t do anything....

Jason Rehor

Large selection of drinks and the service is always top notch. Great place to go with big groups.

Crystal C

Fun place to go with a group of friends. A lot of games, including bowling. Not a regular bowling alley but fun for friends. Good drinks. Would definitely go back and there was a happy hour

Had to wait really long to get someone in the bowling section and when finally someone showed up, they gave the "only" available lane to someone who came after us and told that we had to wait another hour to get another bowling lane. Was excoted for this place, but had to return disappointed.

Great place, amazing service, wonderful mac and cheese. Every corporate party should be held there.

This is an awesome spot for food and entertainment. Indoor lawn games as well as bowling in the "Attic & Cellar" exceptional service with a great staff! They also feature a great drink menu.

marcus peterson

Very cool concept. A good amount of "adult" games to play. From bowling and foosball to corn hole and bocce ball. The beer selection is not the best. Neither is the main floor service. Go to the cellar to get better service. One awesome thing about this place is when you open a tab it good anywhere in the building.

Good environment but food was medicore and the waiter could of been more pleasant.

Shelby Vandever

Usually kind of dead, the actual inch bowl drinks aren't the strongest, little too bougie of a menu but it tasted fine. Can be fun upstairs. There's bowling, bocce, a few arcades. Go for a beer or cocktail.

While my partner and I pride ourselves on living a non-homophobic lifestyle, Punch Bowl takes it to a new level. An only & openly Trans (or currently transitioning) serving staff makes confused native Schaumburgians feel right at home. They will answer any and every question you have about the lifestyle choices these "people" have made - as enforced by management. So in between the fine dining and hot action on the lanes (or in the stalls) please take some time out to guess which server has fully transitioned, or just beginning the process of doing so. And ask! It's their job to tell

I enjoyed this place with friends. We came for the karaoke, and I must say it was worth it! What I like about it is we're not singing in a large crowd, just amongst friends.

Andrea Piazza

Worst place ever!! The music was ungodly horrible....went from punk to rap to a Disney song Moana I mean REALLY!!! Overpriced food and drinks and the bartenders (downstairs) were beyond rude. This place has so much potential but so horribly run!

Tiwanna Jones

Great place!! Just need more food items on the menu.

Bobby Southern

Good appetizers except for the wings. 5 franks red hot rubbery wings for $12.

Lone Wolf 1980

Great service, great atmosphere.

Had a ball here with my friends and Family. Karaoke and games. Truly Fun times!!

Went there with my wife to celebrate a friend's birthday. We had a party of about 16. The staff sat us down at a table for 12 instead of a adding a separate table next to the large table. The food choices did not appeal to my wife nor I, but we did end up getting a shareable dish of the nachos with carnitas. It was okay. Not bad but not great, but could have used more carnitas. I also had a beer, which, beer is beer. My wife had some kind of mixed drink. She said it was pretty good but it was a small amount per drink. The staff was friendly. Only problem was that it took a long time for the waitress to come back to our table. A party of 16 would require constant attention with all of us drinking and being hungry. Especially when we had reservations. I didn't try anything else like bowling or games. Maybe next time if there is a next time.

Chris Stark

This is a fun place for kids and adults. We had an amazing time with our babies and they had fun

Jeannette Otte

Games were ok. Food was great, but menu was not kid friendly.


Fun place to hang out and enjoy the company of friends. Stuff to do on every floor.

Dawn Ardito

Cool spot. Good food and drinks. A touch expensive.

Sun Worshiper

My experience: excellent service, eclectic menu options, fine wine and drinks. The establishment has an expansive atmosphere with high ceilings, modern rustic style textures and contrasting color combinations. Games and bowling broaden the appeal for those who wish to entertain or be entertained.

Hamraj Sandhu

Great place for large group gathering. Plenty of games to place and good food

Ruth Hart

Good place to hang with some friends. Fun games and activities. The drinks weren't as good as I thought. They seemed watered down. Great food


As a gamer, this place was perfect. Tons of different games to play of all varieties, and the service was excellent. The drinks were not too expensive, and they were extreme li y tasty! Some places somehow cannot nail down an old fashioned, but punch bowl did the trick!

Paul Beseth

What a great menu! The beer was great but the service was amazing!!!

Joseph Zeug

I was there for a company function, our company had rented the downstairs area. It had a bar, a 4 lane bowling alley, darts, fuse ball table, corn hole bags, and old style video games. They had also provided free food and soda, and the liquor was extra. The food they provided was ok, but it could have been better. Other than that, the service was pretty good, and it's a great place for getting together with friends.

Ayatollah OfRoknrollah

Great times and great drinks! Fun for the whole crew

Dave Hoyne

Very fun place -- lots of different games. The food was well above what we expected! Best nachos ever!

Lisa Daley

Great food. Very attentive staff!

DeJay Isaac

Very friendly staff, and the basement bar staff make a mean drink.

Valerie Anderson

We reserved a table a month in advanced and was given a cramped space that had no table space. Food was decent and service was average.

Never even made it to this place. This review is more geared toward the event manager, Michelle Ortero at the Schaumburg, IL location. I found it hard working with her because she wasn't responsive in the beginning. It was a week later after I called before I got in touch with her. I had to call and voice a complaint that no one had called me back. The information she provided was not forthcoming. She also had a lack of care and effort in her customer service approach that I was very put off by. Stating services that wouldn't accommodate us and she admittedly said wouldn't so I don't understand why she would even recommend it.

Charlie Shellenberger

I like the menu, different options from other places. Very tasty and good service. You can play bean bags and Jenga. They have a very cozy bowling alley upstairs. Overall a really nice place to eat, hang out, and have some fun.
