It's worth going just to see this place. It's somewhere between a gigantic Chuck E. Cheese and a Vegas casino. Huge game room, lots of restaurant/bar settings and big-screen TVs all over, as is typical of the chain. The food was really expensive and just OK -- it's hard to mess up mac 'n cheese. Dry, tough ribs. A weird... More

Went to Dave and Buster’s for a birthday party. Food and service were OK. Manager, not so much. The short version is stay away from the “tall” beer if you don’t want to get ripped off. They sell beer by the ounce in this tall contraption, which is marked in ounces on the side. The markings don’t take the “chill... More

We went on a Monday night and it was empty! Dinner - Nice selection of entrees. Service was prompt and attentive. Game - Lots of good games and the kids had a good time. The prize room was pretty disorganized and didn't have a great selection. Would like to visit again on the half price Wednesday.

You could get a good meal and go back to playing. Had a lot of tv,s to watch while you ate. Can spend a lot of money really fast but its a great afternoon for the kids.

Everything was perfect we had a private room and it was nicely decorated. They made my moms surprise party great. The food and cake was excellent. Thanks for a great night and the service was really good. So nice to us.

My Sister-In law had invited her entire family,and friend's to Dave and Buster's for a Murder Mystery Dinner Theater Dinner. The Murder Theater was OK, not great, but not terrrible. The actors walked around the room, and up to the second level which was behind us, this made it very hard to hear them. The dinner was absoultly awful. a... More

Food was great. We sat a table that faced tv screens and they have speakers available so you can hear games. We had so much fun playing games! They have deals where you can get dinner and downloadable playing card for games. Awesome!

I love the atmosphere but I dont remember kids being allowed in D&B at night. We left our little one at home because we didnt go to eat until 8pm, but even when we left at 11pm, there were still kids on all the video games. Were looking for an "adult" chuck-cheese, but didnt get that. I had the baby... More
