About Us

Founded in 2015, its the goal of The Castle to be a welcoming place for all, with food and games as the catalyst. Boasting a library of over 1,000 games, from simple roll and move board games to in depth strategy, we have something that will appeal to all types of folks. We also have a full menu of snacks, paninis, burgers and drinks.

Frequently asked questions

How does a board game cafe work? Is there a charge to play games?

In many ways, we're like any other full service restaurant. You will be sat at a table and you'll have a server who will take your order and bring you food. However, if you are with a party who is playing board games as well as eating food, you will pay $5 per person. This fee helps us maintain the board game library, as well as allow us to place less of a priority on turn times, allowing your party to stay and play as long as they'd like. Exceptions to the game fee include: folks who are DMing a group of players, parties who are only eating and drinking (no gaming at the table), folks with a valid military ID, children 5 and under, and any more than 2 children per immediate family.

Do you serve alcohol?

Yes! We have a beer, wine and cordials license so we serve a variety of craft beers, wines and mixed drinks.

Can I bring my own games from home?

Customers are welcome to bring their own games, but the $5 per person gaming fee still applies.

Are reservations required?

While reservations are recommended and appreciated, walk ins are definitely welcome. You can make a reservation here.

Do you accept used game donations?

We're happy to take used games. You can drop them off any time we are open.

Are you wheelchair accessible?

While we currently do not have ADA compliant restrooms, we do have a portable ramp we are happy to put out to allow wheelchair users to easily enter The Castle and play games.

Do you have parking?

We have a small lot reserved for Castle customers off of Park Street. There is also street parking on Rantoul and other nearby side streets.

Do you host private events?

Yes, we host both in person and virtual private events, such as game and trivia nights. For more information, email info@thecastlebeverly.com
