Same as all the other D&Bs but with a bigger sign

I recently took my family to NYC for a week long vacation and occasionally took the kids here where there was some free time. It wasn't bad but was essentially the same as any... read more

We visited here a week ago with our 2 children. They are ages 15 and 12. The food was good, and the children had lots of fun with the games. It was a bit pricey, but we expected that.

We had 3 adults and 6 kids and all of us were very happy with our food. The boys had wings and then they each had a burger, mac and cheese burger and the philly cheese steak burger. Each burger had a very large burger with generous amount of toppings. They were 6 inches tall. The presentation was good and... More

We took our 8yo here. He LOVED it. Lots of fun, small in space so it gets crowded quick. You can order food and/or drink at the bar around the games and walk around with your drinks. People were friendly and free wifi. Good time.

had a birthday party there today. my daughter was thrilled and so were all of her guests. As a parent, I was pleased as well--the party service was great and very attentive. At one point, one of our child-guests had lost points on a machine that wasn't working. she was super upset (they were her last points . . .)... More

After leaving Madame Tousaud's, went to have something to eat. Have to go up 3 floors, for NYC, this is not unusual. We did have to wait in line and when we got to the hostess station, we were informed that there was a $5 cover per person. We immediately left and went downstairs to Applebees. Seems like there was... More

This is a fun, electronic game arcade targeted to adults and teens, but older kids can join the fun as well if accompanied by an adult. I don't think either the game selection or the loud, stimulating environment would be suitable for younger children. You purchase a game card loaded with credits, and scan it at each game. The various... More

I recently took my family to NYC for a week long vacation and occasionally took the kids here where there was some free time. It wasn't bad but was essentially the same as any other D&B we've been to. Don't expect this place to be any different just because it is in NYC. I would recommend only if you've never... More

I haven't visited a Dave and Buster venue in over 20 years. We were a party of 10. There were young children 21 months old, seven, ten, two teenagers and four adults. First and foremost, we enjoyed the food. I had the steak salad which I found delicious and plentiful. Everyone enjoyed their food. Games I like the dinner and... More

Came here for lunch but after seeing the menu we decided to have a drink and play some arcade games instead. The staff were horrible, so nonchalant and seemed not to give two cares about us. The front desk or whatever it may be called just sent us over to the hostess who really didn't know what do do with... More

Love the atmosphere and the food was also great. It was a great chill spot for me and my BFF as we enjoyed drinks on a great night out in NYC.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
