We had a quick trip to Garden City this past weekend, and decided to hit this place with my family. What a trip back in time! Old school arcade games (including my 1980s favorite- Phoenix) and fun stuff like skee ball. The place is clean and the staff courteous - one of them was kind enough to take a family... More

Nice arcade for those who like playing older games like Donkey Kong and Frogger. This is the only arcade I can think of that still uses tokens, as well a tickets which you can exchange for prizes which is nice. Lots of fun and it is my my favorite arcade on the Grand Strand. Would recommend if you like playing... More

This is a nice gameroom especially if you are a fan of older games like Donkey Kong and Frogger. The upper room was under construction for awhile but seems to be completed now.

My family used to vacation in Garden City, SC every year when o was little and the Garden City Pavilion Arcade was one of me and my sister's favorite things to do. They still have all of our favorite games and I'm 32 now and enjoyed that arcade with own children just as much as I did with my parents... More

This was not an extremely impressive arcade, but my husband and I did enjoy playing some of the nostalgia games that are kept upstairs. However, it was extremely hot on the second floor. There was absolutely no air flow and honestly it smelled like body odor. We could only stay upstairs a short time. It was a little cooler downstairs,... More

This place was pretty cool for the kids to check out! Just like a chucky cheese really with games that pay out tickets, that you cash in for prizes. Actually it wasn't as expensive as you would have thought so we had a great time, plus its right on the strip. Definitely would recommend eating at the little restaurant deli... More
