Our daughters, ages 11 and 8, with their cousins, ages 10 and 7, visited the arcade for break from the sun. Unfortunately, several of the games were broken including the classics - pinball, Ms. PacMan among others. The games that were working were fun -...More

It’s nothing big but was fun for an hour. It reminded me of the classic arcade/ticket games from Seaside Heights NJ...only a lot smaller. The man that runs the place has been super nice every time we’ve been there.

This is not a big arcade nor does it have alot of games. We had a 8 year old and he enjoyed the games but for adults to play its not worth the time. The ice cream and pizza was good.

I stopped in the check out the games, about 3/4 of them worked. Most took quarters, some old school games. Fun place.

Located Ocean front...near the pier..great location but....some games were out of order...others just took our coins...so the selection of games that we could actually play were really limited...decided to head elsewhere....it's a shame because Ocean Isle needs a good arcade!

Every year we vacation on Ocean Isle and every year we take our children out for a quick trip to Breakers for some ice cream and video games. It isn't the newest building on the island and it is right on the beach (which makes...More

So, I've been in here before several years ago for icecream. Now, no, no, no. I prefer to stay healthy. I went in to play games(of which they have quite a few). They've let it become dumpy. The rest room was just straight gross and...More

I wanted to like this place as its one of the only arcades in the area - or at least easy to get to. But like other reviewers have said it is pretty rundown and somewhat shady looking. Still, they have skeeball and my youngersters...More

Myself and the family walked down to the arcade one night just to see what was going on around the island. Not much at the arcade, some old arcade games, 3 pool tables, and a funky smell (mildew i guess). Didn't stay long, didn't try...More
