I have gone to Dave and Buster's on a number of occasions - most recently just for dinner and then played in the amusement center. Its fun to play in the amusement center and collect tickets which you can then turn in to select some type of present (i.e. so many coupons per each item). I have also been for... More

The service at this place was horrible. It took over 30 minutes to get our food. We had to wait 40 minutes to get seated with plenty of seats available. There was not enough staff to accommodate the crowd. We were not the only unhappy people there as well. Bar food at a poor level not worth it. This was... More

Fun arcade that has a large selection of midway & video games. Turns into adults-only after 9pm, for those who prefer a non-Chuck E. Cheese like scene. Good food and serves alcoholic drinks. Generally well maintained, but esp. on weekends, they could use more game techs to fix games. They do generally remedy the issues well though. Half-priced Wed. are... More

Worst dining establishment experience of my life. I hosted a party of about 11 people here last fall. Because our group was larger than the dining parties of 4-5 that were in line, we offered to split ourselves into two groups of 5-6 so that we didn't have to overwhelm a server. We explained that we were totally fine with... More

Huge salads and big burgers. Captive audience in this huge mall, except for those who are happy not to have table service. Philly burger was very moist and tasty, lawn mower salad was disgustingly huge but very fresh and light.... Beers were cold, Coronarita margarita not worth the bother - top shelf margarita was the winner in the drinks department.... More

The food was really good! I had a great meal. Forget about the games and just go there for the food. This place has an awesome sports bar; one of the best I have seen and definitely the best in the area, although there are not a lot of bars in the area. I did not get a chance to... More

We ate at the bar, had great drinks, played games, won tickets and got a great prize. Who knew I could beat my husband in a game of NASCAR???? The female bartender ignored us every time she walked by, but the man was very helpful Hope he got out tip.

Really, I was unable to find the price of the drinks or beer until i saw the bill. Maybe it was just me, or I had some odd menu, but I could not tell what any prices were for drinks. I went there to watch a game, and they did have the game on one screen, even though it was... More
