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.

I've been to a Dave and Buster's in Houston before and enjoyed it. My wife and I stopped by here one night for supper and had big plans for the night to blow a lot of money on arcade games. The food was ok, the service was pretty terrible (our server was polite and you could tell she was trying,... More

Worst place to go out and eat. Waited for someone to seat us when we came in there was hardly anyone. Sat and ordered our food and it took probably more than half an hour for the waitress to get our food. A couple came in after us and they were already being served their food. After a while, our...

We ate lunch here and did the $20 games card deal where you pay around $30 for a meal and that comes with a $20 game card. Decent deal. The food was Ok here but certainly nothing special, and towards the low end of all the meals we had in NYC. The games were fun for the kids as they... More
