We came in for happy hour drinks and games. I was impressed with the happy hour menu, however they didn’t have more than half of what was on the menu. The bartender was so rude and just “too busy” to even acknowledge you... even though...More

This place is similar to Dave and Buster's. Food was good and average price. Only thins is you do not get your arcade card until after you eat. I guess so as not to tie-up a table? Games were fun and prizes were pretty descent....More

Took family here just for the games. We ate elsewhere before as we weren't sure of the food quality. Game area was decent, but nothing like their biggest competitor. Word is they will be in the area some time in the near future and I...More

The menu deal is just perfect. $16.99 you get a game card with 60 points and a meal. The food is decent but the service is slow. The service staff were friendly and upbeat but the meal's take awhile to get to you. The games...More
