Our kids love Dave & Buster's. We have been to lots of them. This one is humongous! The food is your standard kid-friendly fare. We never expect too much. We enjoy eating there, but they do not offer the healthiest choices. We mostly go there because we need to eat before we allow the kids to play and, often, we purchase discount game cards with our meal.

The service was very good, the bathrooms were clean and our kids had a great time.

Hadn't been to a Dave & Buster's in years but since there is finally a new one in the area we decided to have a family night out and act like kids again. We went on a Saturday night so it was packed but not annoyingly packed. We got our power up cards and they had great deals for extra credits. Loved that I could power up through their app instead of going to the kiosk or asking an attendant because I didn't have to interrupt my fun to do so. We sat and ate first, prices were reasonable and food was great especially the fried shrimp. The customer service was awesome. We played tons of games and won over 5,000 tickets. The prize choices weren't cheap and cheesy like we thought they would be, I actually got some great things to bring home to my son. I think we will be regulars here from now on.

D&B location is smaller than you think it would be. Only Worth it to go on Wednesday for half off games.

We went to the new Dave and Busters in Lynnhaven Mall in early August. We have been to Dave and Busters in other parts of the country and have enjoyed the arcade games in a grown up atmosphere. We usually ate dinner in the separate dining room and then played games, watched sports and played pool in the arcade. This Dave and Busters is completely different. The dining room is stark, ugly and LOUD. It looks like they put tables in a parking garage and then blasted all kinds of music to the point where the servers have to scream at the top of their lungs to explain the food and Power Card options. The servers seemed to be doing the best that they could but things were disorganized and when our food didn't arrive for close to 45 minutes we asked for a manager, who was rude and blamed the server. It was uncomfortable and left us with a bad feeling.

The arcade is supposed to be for adults only, and anyone under 18 is supposed to be accompanied by an adult. That was not the case in this arcade. It was wall to wall screaming kids with no adult supervision. We used up our Power Cards as fast as possible and got out of there.

We will probably never go back until we hear that the policies, management and atmosphere change to be more like the other Dave and Busters that we have enjoyed. Can't recommend.

Im so glad there is a D&B here now! Food is good! Tons of fun fo the whole family! My husbands steak was overcooked but then again, its not a steakhouse. Their comfort foods are awesome. Service was fast and friendly. This place is like a sports bar, an adult Chuck E. Cheese, and a Chilli's rolled up into one. They card at the door. Under 18 need a parent or guardian.
6 minors per adult. Kiddie call is at 11pm. Too bad they dont have bowling though like the one in MD. Still tons of fun!
