We only had late night cocktails here so I can not review the food. Unfortunately our cocktails were made too strong for our liking. The wait staff was hard to find and we may have ordered another drink but waited too long that we had to go up to the bar to wait for our check. It seemed the other... More

We visit play occasionally and the food is always great. Servers are very attentive and happy to give suggestions. Prices are not cheap but the quality is excellent. Literally every menu item we have tried is really good.

White Oaks is a resort and spa and Play Urban Cafe' is on site. Manager greet and seated us and checked on us frequently while we dined. Dishes were healthy and delicious and not gigantic portions. Service was excellent but not over bearing.

My husband and I walked over to Play after shopping at the outlets. We ordered the calamari to start and it was excellent. I didn't know we would be getting cactus chips as well so we were pretty full by the time our main courses arrived. The portions are generous.

If you like your hamburger lean and with a nice char on it, the brioche-bunned burgers we ordered are for you. Salads are healthy and fresh. The homemade potato chips are the best I've had. Beer selection was not "endless taps o' joy" but it was decent. Would recommend if you'd like a quieter pub-style restaurant with fresh, quality food.

Service was quick and friendly, our server Jacob was great explaining the specials and cautioning us on the size of the nachos. The Mananger even came to check on us. They were able to accommodate my Wife's dietary restrictions. Portions are huge. We had ever intention of ordering mains, but the nachos and caeser salad were more than enough for... More

I eat at Play 2-3 times a month. The food is very good and there a big selection. The bar is beautiful and quite inviting and the service is second to none.

It was our first night in the area and this was close with good reviews and a menu that appealed to us. It was the right choice, one we found it. It is in the club side of the complex. The menus is nice, service is excellent and the food was great. We had a nice meal at a reasonable... More
