Nothing unique to this Dave & Busters

Friendly staff, decent food at decent prices, waiter was friendly. Gaming was great-lots of variety, lots of lights and sound, and a digital ticket system, that was awesome. Prizes such as mugs, speakers and video games are geared toward a more grown up clientele. We had New York Passes and when you purchased $20 worth of gaming you got $20... More

Since everything seems more grandiose in New York, I thought this was going to be a one of a kind Dave & Busters experience but it wasn’t. I’ve been to the one in Ontario Mills many times in Ontario, California and it’s almost the exact same down to the subpar food. Don’t waste your time as there are many things... More

On a busy, holiday week, we had no wait. Our waitress was nice and friendly, we had an excellent booth, the food was what you'd expect at a DnB and the kids had a very good time playing the games. BUT - it took 60 minutes for us to get our food. One of the managers did come over to... More

With the free buffet, open bar , live DJ , amusements and huge TV... More

They've updated a few of the games since my last visit here. There's car racing games, Fruit Ninja, Doodle Jump, Frogger, Connect Four, and much more. There's also a small bar area for drinks and food. Games provide tickets to use to trade in for prizes. Game prices range from 7 to 12 tokens each. Price cards range from $25... More

We ate here and weren't overly impressed. The service was poor, our waitress spent the whole time talking to her friends rather than serving us. Food was ok but not amazing. However, afterwards we went in the arcade and that was fab! Lots of machines you don't see in the UK and just good, traditional fun. We returned again the... More

Expected something different in a D&B in Times square but nothing spectacular. The machines are fun but nothing to brag about and the Foos and service just standard

My partner and I had a really fun time at Dave and Buster's playing a range of games - the ski ball and shooting games were an especial favourite. A good fun night out.

Apart from being located in an old building, this D&B is certainly one of the best I have experienced in East Coast USA. Practically all machines were running during my visit (They tend to have some down on repairs, or some not function properly). Easy distribution for controlling and having your eyes on your kids (Which helps relax and enjoy... More

Food was average. Ordered potato skins and they were really sad looking. Service wasn't that great and the food took ages to come. Wouldn't go again.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
