It was our first time at dave and busters and it looked like chuckie cheese with kids everywhere. Isnt is supposed to be an adult place? The wait wasent too bad. The waitress that served us had already had a annoyed attitude and she took our order without writting it down. I ordered a marks mark burger and they brought... More

I absolutely love coming here. I always come with my boyfriend and we have a blast. They do ID after a certain time and nobody under 21 can get in without somebody older which is kind of lame. The bar is really big and they always have a sports game on. The drinks are always fantastic. You can spend quite... More

If you are traveling with kids you cant go wrong with D&B. Arcade games is just the thing to wear them out but have a great tme doing so. Make sure you go the restaurant. Good size serving - get the mac n cheese sandwich. Toasty bread with sliced pork with a giant scoop of mac n cheese - great... More

Took a party of 45 teenagers here as part of their trip and they loved it. You get food; you play arcade games; you win prizes. It does exactly what it says on the tin. The service in the restaurant was excellent but very slow in the bar in the arcade. Kids beware you have to win thousands of tickets... More

After some business meetings my family and I decided to go out and explore NYC. First attraction we visited was D&B since it was right next to our hotel and in the middle of Time Square, kids loved this place and food so if you're traveling with family this is the place to bring the kiddos, they will love you...

Stopped here for a quick bite to eat. I can see how the experience can become quite expensive with different combo packages available. But you can get away cheap if your kids are not into playing games and would rather see the sights of Time Square.

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

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
