Normally I refrain from a bad review only writing a review when I truly enjoy a restaurant. However A family style restaurant like Dave & Busters should be able to do better in consideration of the large crowds of people that their games bring in. My kids love this place because they love games. But when your 7 year old... More

This is not a chuck e cheeses. This is a very contemporary restaurant/ arcade with games designed for both adults and kids. The menu offers combinations that include a game card and your choice of chicken Cesar salad, teriyaki sirloin steak, fire grilled salmon, burgers, ribs, and shrimp. And the food was surprisingly good!

Visited for the first time on a business trip to Melville. Good sized facility, with nest games. I have to say that it is not as I expected; not like the arcades I have come to know. Games are a little pricey, but the new Power Card prices make it easier to stomach. Can also save a couple of bucks... More

Stopped here for lunch and to waste an hour before flight. The cheeseburger and fries were delicious. Had an Angry Orchard on draft. Many fun games to choose from. Loved the giant Connect Four, basketball, large air hockey tables, and the zombie and Jurassic Park games. Skip the rip off gambling games. All credits and tickets are stored on card.... More

First time dining here. If you love sports, this is the place to dine and watch your favorite team on the big screens. The server was friendly and stayed on top of things. The food was mouthwatering, I had the Philly cheesesteak. The price is very fair. I will be a returning customer.

4 of us went here 2/17/15, the food was good, drinks not great. Happy hour charged us $20.98 for to drinks.the waitress just didn't wanna be there. But still gave her $20.00 for a $103.00 bill. Because people have to make a living. We never go back.

The chimichurri sirloin was outstanding. Service was good. Surprised the crowd wasn't larger since the Jets were playing on Monday Night Football. Very few people in the restaurant area and the game area was nearly vacant. Worth visiting again.
