Went here with my 3 year old daughter on Saturday evening. Have been here with friends before, but with younger kids, this is not a great place on a Saturday night, as it is very crowded, and younger kids will get pushed around and knocked down. Without coupons, the games end up being expensive also, and I hate that they... More

My Girlfriend and I came here spur of the moment during our trip to NYC. We had a fun time playing the games together and had a few drinks.

Even with all the other attractions in NYC teen boys thought this was the best stop on the trip. Pretty typical D&B. Food was good and very fast. One star down only b/c the server was not around much to refill drinks etc but that would not stop us from coming back.

We went into Dave & Busters to grab a bite to eat before we went on The Ride this weekend - I have to say it was just average. Nothing special - Service was average - food took a little while to get to us as well. The prices were ok for NYC - it isn't anything that would make... More

I liked that me and my 16 y/o son had a good time competing against each other in the arcade. Was not explained very well how the power cards worked and wasn't much customer service help at the front desk. The attendant seemed like she didn't want to be there.

Did New Years here in 2008 and it wasn't too bad. Definitely a better option than standing in the streets but you still had a solid 2-3 hours of getting out of the city after the ball dropped. Other than that the food and atmosphere here is ok, nothing amazing.

I love Dave and Busters and try to visit each time we go to a major city. We decided to have dinner here. It was confusing where to line up to get seated. It took a long time for our server to greet us and take our drink order. It was Sunday and they had a $5 beer special that... More

The only reason why I wouldn't give it a 5 star rating is because the server we got took FOREVER to come take our order, not because he was busy with other tables, but because he was messing around with some drunk customers that were there playing around. Its great that he's friendly but at least bring us a drink... More

We visited here a few nights into our trip to New York seeking some gaming and alcoholic refreshments after a long day exploring the city and became hooked on the place. The selection of games and the quality of the prizes available with the ticket redemption was great and the whole place had a really fun filled atmosphere. This became... More

Was visiting times square when it started down poring. We eat and played and had a great time. Wasn't planning on it but was worth going in.
