When I just want to enjoy the company of my friends and we just like to go have a drink and play games, this is a place we go to. it has a lot of seating and plenty of parking since it is part of the Great Mall. When every sports bar is full, this place has plenty of seating.... read 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

I have been to the Dave and Buster’s several times at the Palisades Center in NY for both lunch and dinner, but, my impression of this chain was not so high until I came here for the first time for dinner. I was here on business with a group of 15 of us who decided to meet at this local... More

Food is not exceptional, same kind as Chilli's but with the play card add on. Food is no so bad though, the service however is extremely slow since the boys in charge are no paying attention to the tables. So if you are hungry or in a hurry, this definetly is not the place to go. If you like videogames... More

I've been here twice now, other time years ago. The place has many different areas, like huge rooms, and many bars, restaurant like areas through out! This time was on Saturday and it was packed solid, but still had fun. Video games like an arcade, all the newest games with some older games. many games for kids 3 years to... More

If you like gaming and a noisy environment you're right here. If you want to have dinner in a silent environment move away. The dishes provided are average typical American style food and drinks.

Decided it would be fun to take the team for some food and fun. 15 mins and our waiter graced us with his presence. 40 mins and we finally have a drink, but the waiter spilled half mine down the back of my shirt. 1.5 hours, we are presented with a cold meal, no utensils. Another 10 mins and I... More

Located in the Great Mall in San Jose. I have made many out of the way trips to the restaurant, bar, and activity center. The restaurant can get busy and wait times can vary. Food is ok with nothing exceptional to taste. Standard American classic restaurant dishes. Cooked and seasoned ok. There are several bars each can get busy and... More

Liked: Several gaming options Disliked: The service from the waiters. Especially, we were on a party that day and many of us had drink coupons. They suddenly stopped the service at 8pm, and said the coupons are not valid after 8 pm. If they could have give a warning, then our coupons would not had been wasted.

If you're up for so e food and fun but want to enjoy your food without the loud noises from the arcade area, then choose to be seated at the restaurant rather than the arcade. The arcade is more family oriented. The restaurant side, you do have a wait if you do. it have reservation. When we went there, there... More
