Typical D&B. Attached to a mall, so nice to have options.

This is a typical Dave & Busters. It's a chain, so you should know what you are getting. It is attached to a mall, so the positive is that there is an escape when you get tired of D&B. The negative is that there are lots of people (kids) coming in because there's a mall attached. The service is... read more

My husband thought this would be a fun double date.NO SO! We walked in very nice front bar for game days I would expect. We went the back for the arcade. The waitress seemed very unhappy to be there..maybe she should find another job. Hardly checked on us. The worst part was she told us it was happy hour so... More

It's basically a casino size pub filled with arcade games. So it gives it some unique advantages: 1. This place is big. It can absorb any group you bring in. Plenty of parking and convenient location are included. 2. That space comes in many forms. You can sit at a bar, watch TV, play arcades, eat, or rent a room... More

We were there for a gathering with my team members. The feedback from the lcoal guys were not so welcoming before we reached there. However the moment we entered and started the perception changed. The place is awesome and offer a variety of activities. The game arena and the way they conduct group games are awesome. The staff are full... More

We were on a road trip to California, we stopped here to meet with our cousin who lives in San Jose. This was a great place to stop at since we had an 8 year old with us. He was able to play while we were catching up with our cousin. The food here was good but the service was... More

I can walk out of my garage and be at this Dave & Buster's, so naturally you may think that I would spend a lot of time here. The games, yeah, they're fun, but most of the restaurant staff do not make the experience so great. My roommate has had bad service before, and still left a tip. This is... More

Love this place for after-work partying. Requested a pickle back at the bar. Bartender claimed: no pickle juice. I asked if they serve pickle with burgers. Of course we do, he says. I reply: then you DO have pickle juice. He hesitantly says he'll have to leave the bar to go get some from the kitchen. Returned and served me... More

Well, everyone knows these types of places are going to take all you have. I took my 17 yr old son and his 2 friends to enjoy a birthday celebration before going back to school. They had a blast; but, it cost me about $270.....ouch! Good was ok, considering you get $10 back on the Power card. $2 activation fee... More
