Dave & busters clone

We didn't stop her to eat but the arcade portion of Game time operated exactly like our hometown Dave & Busters, you can go through $20 worth of credits in no time flat and have a great time doing it.

Disgusting bathrooms, slow service, bartender seemed disoriented and lack knowledge of the menu. Drinks over-priced and warm.

I went here with my son for games and dinner. I splurged on a $50 card for the two of us to share (I like the games, too), and this lasted us a good hour or more. My son got to take home several fun prizes, including an inflatable alien toy that's as tall as him (almost 5 feet!) I... More

Food was average. Kids didn't care they just played games. All they cared about anyway. Staff was very friendly actually. Ok place to go occasionally with the kids but could get very expensive

I ordered a salad which the server came back to tell me they were sold out of some the items for the salad. No problem, I ordered a different salad. I received my salad, but was not liking the taste of the blue cheese crumbles. They remade it without the blue cheese. The server was very professional about this. The... More

We came here after the Outback Bowl to let our band members relax and have a little fun. They had a taco bar set up for them and it was really good! One of the best meals we had on our trip. The game area was really good also. The kids (teens and some adults) had a really good time... More

Took family here to enjoy an evening out. The games are overpriced, game rewards are a circus fare type, the food is a frozen food delight and the pocket is a lot lighter than what I came in with. Great marketing at its best. Next time a great dinner elsewhere and a movie is what will be in store. Sorry,... More

Prices for games are ridiculous. We have one child and spent $45 in less than an hour on mediocre games. Not a great find... Lots of other places to go and enjoy in the area.
