Grinkers Grand Palace
While most kids now bond over headsets during Call of Duty rather than during bouts at Ms. Pac-Man, the lazy Saturdays of growing up in the 1980s and '90s still live on inside Grinkers Grand Palace. The staff has brought together more than 100 arcade games released between 1975 and 1992, allowing Gen-Xers to relive the joys of their childhood as they plop quarters into arcade games in a family-friendly setting. While they aim for the high score on Super Mario Bros., BurgerTime, or Space Invaders, guests can sip on wine and beer or refuel with a range of subs and root-beer floats. A playlist of classic rock hums through the speakers, creating an atmosphere conducive to transporting players back in time so they can remember where they left their lost retainer.

“Fun place and delicious food. Staff was uber friendly and helpful, made us feel welcome. The sandwiches were AMAZING - tons of meat and the dressing they use is superb. Only side available is chips, so nothing fancy there, but they go great with a sub. Our kids loved how dark it was inside, gave it a nice ambiance. Your quarters go pretty fast in the games but it was fun to see the vast collection of arcade games and pinball machines. Worth every penny, looking forward to going back!”
