This was a fun visit to the past. I was a little sceptical when we drove up, but was pleasantly suprised, when we walked in. I found out my wife loves and used to play Joust. What a fascinating new fact to find out. They...More

I always loved the arcades of the 80's, and the recent emergence of bars with that theme has been great. I recently moved to Atlanta and sought out an arcade bar, finding Joystick. Though smaller than a couple other similar bars I've enjoyed in the...More

We had 8 ladies in our group. Joystick Gamebar does not take reservations, but I did email ahead with some questions and gave them a heads up of our date and time of arrival. From the beginning email to our final exit from the bar,...More

Note: this review is purely for the gaming aspect, and not the food. No one in our party ordered food during our visit. We had lunch at a nearby restaurant and, as it was a slow day they were kind enough to let us leave...More

We had heard of Joystick plenty but had not made it over until yesterday. On a whim, we decided to make it our post-lunch activity with the family (all adults). We had a blast playing arcade and board games from our past while sipping on...More
