We were a large party of about 20 people and we were seated quickly and orders were taken efficiently. The food is served in very large portions, so sharing is definitely an option. Nice selection of kids choices and adult choices and a nice selection of non alcoholic drinks and alcoholic drinks. After eating we went to play games and... More

The food is excellent but get there early if you don't like a lot of noise. Had been there before but it's been a few years. I still like the place.

A good fun place for all ages. The food was good and lots of TV's. Great for a family outing. Service was great. The only negative is the bathrooms were disgusting!

We had a ball at this place but the lines kinda get on your nerves. Easy food choices. We might try this on a week night the next time we are down.

When I went to Dave & Buster's it went very smooth in the beginning but when I ordered my food there was a long wait and I was starving but other than that everything was clean and sanitized

Great place for a birthday party. The food was surprisingly good for a place that focuses on all types of video games. My salmon was excellent and my husband's burger was just as good. The service was really good and friendly. The games are fun even though a few were broken.

Everything was good...except the food. Appetizers were cold. Mac and cheese was disgusting. In the future, would eat somewhere else and come over only for games and TV. And the bathrooms are in need of an upgrade and some air freshener! Yuck!

Fun place for teens. Games are updated. That's good. Role place is a pig sty. Bathrooms are worse than that. Definitely in need of more employees. Service was shoddy. Getting seated within an hour on Saturday night at 7 was a bonus. We had a party of 11.

There were two of us eating. The food was pretty good but we waited forever for our food and we had to wait another 25 minutes to receive our check when our meal was finished. I finally sent my son out to play games without me. Disappointing.
