Dave and Buster's has something for everyone here. Whether its food, games, dancing, drinking, hanging out, you can pretty much do it all here. First off food..... The food, I would say has been slipping to about average of late. The D&B ribs and the stuffed mushrooms (sadly no longer available) were my food of choice and i'd say before they would bring a tear to my eye as a ripple or happiness engulfed me with the taste, however now, just a smile. Games, lots of games but quality of the games not very varied. Kids will enjoy, but if they are ticket seekers you could see you power card credits (A card required to play games and put tickets on) dwindle quickly. There is a bar for the adults as well as eating booths on the game floor level, but kids do require an adult to be walking around with them (semi-enforced rule) especially towards the later hours.
Now on the rooftop deck (top floor obviously) you can order food although I do think the menu up there is limited and there is also a bar for your alcoholic pleasure (My preference is the "Candy Shop"). There is a nice view with some limited ocean view. The real treat about this level is during certain nights there is a DJ and the small dance floor goes crazy. For families I recommend going early to truly get the experience and fun for the keiki (Kids). Weekday afternoons and generally not crowded and is the right time to sit and have a drink after the brutal workday. My friends and I hang out here to have a few and play games. Service is a hit and miss, some waiters and waitresses being exceptional while some just being so so. You will find at anytime a mix of the local people, military, and tourists and for the most part no real issues with the mixed plate of people here. The parking is good however toward the evenings and weekends just plan a little ahead, there is a valet located within the building. If you'd just like to spend that quality time with the kids and family or friends this may fill the requirements for each person in your party. The atmosphere is just a great experince and single people bring your friends because at anytime there are groups of girls and guys all looking to have fun and maybe meet that certain one.

i love this place. the games are so fun and theres tons to do. i can just play around for hours and win big money. i usually throw down about 25 dollars on tokens and i end up with tons of candy and some big prize or something. i'm still a kid at heart and i love it here.
i never eat although i heard the food stepped up a notch.

From 11am until close, Dave and Buster's is my favorite place for delicious food and tons of fun! My favorite game Spin-n-Win sheds a thousand tickets at a time with my God-Given skills of eye-hand coordination...so much fun! Be sure to check online for special discounts along with tourist publications that usually have deals for DnB as well!

We'd always been kind of turned off by the gaming aspect of all the ads for D&B, but decided to try it since it was right down the street from where we were staying. Their bar menu for specialty drinks is pretty darn good and the beer selection isn't the best, but not bad. Went back a second time and had something to eat and the food was decent and well priced. The atmosphere is almost pure sports bar, so if that's what you like, as we do, this is a fun place to hang. We honestly did not do the gaming routine, but still enjoyed the rest and glad they keep them seperated.

We make this our last stop before heading to the airport to return home. The food is great and a very good variety at a reasonable price. The atmosphere is fun with pool tables and adult and teen oriented games,including tickets to cash in for prizes.We went on line and signed up for their rewards card and got double the game tokens. Nice to find a game room for the big kids.
