We love Dave and Busters. Food is fabulous and drinks too. People are great. Clean restrooms. Prizes seem to be getting kind of cheap like but still have some good ones. Games are awesome.

1st time at this location. Friendly staff. Manager checked to make sure my food came out well. Ordered the Makers Burger. Very good. No complaints. Nice size. Cooked to order. Good taste. Fries were forgettable. Nothing special. No Togo cups? I wanted to take water with me and they were unable to accommodate my request.

We have been here numerous times but this time I decided to write a review. It's a great place for games & to drink. My Husband & son enjoy it. We have eaten here everytime we come & the food has been just ok. This time my dish (pasta with grilled chicken & shrimp) wasn't good at all. It had... More

This is probably exactly what you are thinking it would be. The food is just ok and the games aren't really that great. Plus all games are played using credit off a plastic card you load at the front. In fact the games are rather expensive as most take 2-4 credits to play. While there are lots of games they... More

We have been to Dave & Buster's with the kids(not ours) and have done the arcade thing and eaten at the restaurant where the dinners have been good. The menu has a variety of things and of those I've tried the quality and taste have been excellent. My wife and I usually hit the bar area and order drinks (usually... More

Food & service are pretty good. As long as you don't mind the screaming kids & constant noise. But that's what this place is for, right?

My boyfriend and I have been here multiple times. I liked the atmosphere and the staff was nice. We always fun when we go with a group of friends or just the two of us. The only problem was the wait for the dinning room so we just left. The parking lot is small so we had to park in... More

Came here few days ago, the service was great, the food was great, the atmosphere was nice. There are a lot of children there but it's expected as its a family/children restaurant. Game room had a lot of options. I would come back here again no questions asked!

Normally I refrain from a bad review only writing a review when I truly enjoy a restaurant. However A family style restaurant like Dave & Busters should be able to do better in consideration of the large crowds of people that their games bring in. My kids love this place because they love games. But when your 7 year old... More

I hate that you can't go back further in the dates. I'm kind of new to the site.... when they first open you could not even get in there they were packed constantly. Has been there several times between 2005-2010... during the day lunch time... brought my friends kids for lunch played games had a blast. Better than Chuck E... More
