    We had a team party for our soccer team and ended up with twice as many people as we thought we were going to have. The staff found space for us and was helpful the whole time.

    Service was great. However, when the waitress put a food allergy to the kitchen for someone at our table, the kitchen staff still put that allergy item on their food. It wasn't the waitresses fault at all. The manager came and apologized but that was where it ended. The games were fun, there were a few that weren't working but that was ok. Other than that it was good night out with the family.

    Service is the absolute worst. Staff is rude, they ignore you, and only talk if you happen to walk too far into the bar. Everybody on the staff was incompetent and it really made an otherwise decent day halfway miserable.

    The waitress who was helping us is new and she did an excellent job. You could tell it was extremely busy and she apologized everytime she came to the table about any wait times, which, weren't even that bad for how busy it was. She was kind and checked in on us often even with the business. The noise level was extremr but we didn't expect anything different onba Saturday night at Dave and Busters while UFC was on. Haha. We enjoyed our time and would go back over and over based on this experience!

    The wait to be seated, even with having a reservation took a long time. The wait to order food, and receive food was even longer. Many people at our table felt the food was not good, and there were a few order issues as well. The games were fun and it felt like you got a decent amount of games to play for a decent price, but I would not recommend eating here.

    Our poor waiter was so overwhelmed with too many tables that it took 30 minutes to get water. We had a flatbread pizza that wasn't cooked in the center. We had a hamburger that was raw in the middle and nothing but Char on the outside. A chicken sandwich that had about a tablespoon of salt dumped on it. We couldn't get drinks. We had to wait 25 minutes for the check and then it took another 30 minutes for them to figure out how to do the check and even then we didn't get our Play points. Do not go for the food go for the arcade

    The food and server was great plus the magician they had going around the tables was amazing! However, the management and people handling the reservations definitely need to work on their people skills and handling seating people correctly.

    We sat at our table for 30 min before asking if someone could take out order. Then we were told that our table was in an area with no server (we were sat there by the host). So we were moved and then waited at least ten min longer before someone finally took our order. Got our food and the order was wrong 🙃 I recommend Dave and Busters for the games, but not for the restaurant.

    We were told we had to order and eat fast because of a party. But even when the party was coming they did NOT have somewhere else for us to go. They kept saying they were over booked. The manager didn’t have the audacity to come talk to us so sent a helpless hostess to tell us they had nowhere for us to go. For a place that facilitates parties and stuff the organization was absolutely terrible, we brought a basketball team that brought hundreds in revenue and were treated as an inconvenience but didn’t have a problem taking our $500 for just our family. However our Server was AMAZING and equally as frustrated. He deserves a raise.

    We made our reservation on OpenTable, called Dave and Busters to confirm reservation at 11am the day of and were told everything is ready to go. When our party arrived at 3pm we were told we did not have a reservation even though we had a confirmation email and number. The party was told to sit in the bar where we had to move tables to create our own area. We will not be returning to Dave and Busters in Auburn.

    Booked a table for 8 to drink and watch the UFC fight but unfortunately they weren’t allowed to change the tv channel. We had two televisions where we were seated, both playing a football game, so we requested to have one changed to the fight since that’s why we came out. Not the servers fault at all, just a silly rule it seems since the bar was playing the fight on multiple monitors but there wasn’t enough space for our group there of course.

    We had a wonderful experience for our daughter's birthday party. The management was a bit bumpy over the phone, but in person treated us with the utmost respect, and were very kind and helpful to our party. Our poor waitress was clearly overbooked with guests, and therefore was unable to give our table as much attention as we needed, though she was clearly trying her very best. I was told that the restaurant was understaffed for the day, and that we should expect there could be some delays, so we did come in with open eyes, and were patient with them as best we could be. Some of our guests were frustrated with the service quality, and said so, but as the host, I wasn't at all disappointed, given what I knew they had to work with, and the fact that our party size went from 20 to over 30, unexpectedly. Thank you to everyone who attempted to make our party a memorable one. We would definitely return for another event, but hope that their staffing limitations get resolved soon, for the sake of their existing hardworking employees not feeling so overwhelmed.

    Despite making a reservation they did not have a table available and we had to wait over 30 mins to get seated, they tried to split our party up to sit on different tables. Some. It took the longest time to even order our food, and some of it went to the wrong table. The wrong dish was delivered to someone that had ordered gluten free and they were not able to split the bill so that we could pay individually without having to wait for another 45 mins

    Made reservations for my son's 16th birthday party. There were 15 people coming for dinner and fun. I had read some of the reviews prior but wanted to make sure I experienced it all for myself before making up my mind. I was so pleased with the service, food, and all the games provided. It was definitely loud, but so are we, there were a ton of options for dinner, so everyone was happy, and the food was delicious! Our server was top notch and if you have the opportunity to go and be served ask for Sita's area. She was able to help me figure out what our best options were for purchasing the playing cards, she was spot on with making sure everyone had what they needed and refills on beverages were available without anyone having to ask. I haven't had such good service like this in a very long time. She really made our experience very pleasant, and we can't wait to go back again. The party was a huge success!

    Hosted an 8 yr old b-day party with 16 kids and 8 adults. It's was great though it was expensive. Got the meal and game package with the $5 on on for unlimited arcade games. Worth it. Great service for such a busy place on a football Sunday.

    Arrived to find that local GM decided to charge $10 per person entry fee as the Canelo Alvarez vs. Jermell Charlo PPV fight was going to be shown. This was not noted on their phone website or OpenTable. The fight was noted as being a local restaurant event, though no coverage was noted. This was very unfortunate and as we drove a significant distance to go to Dave & Buster's, we decided that we needed to pay the cover charge.

    We waited 15 minutes to find out who our server was. The service was not frequent enough during our stay. We purchased $160 in (4) game cards and when I went to buy a 5th, who seemed to be the manager said he couldn’t honor the same deal on the fifth one because it had to be done at the same time as the first four cards. I purchased another $40 for another kid anyway. We spent nearly $500 that day to accommodate last minute plans for our son’s birthday. We understand that reserving a table in the dinning area is not the same as a private party reservation. But we still got treaded poorly as a big table reservation. I sense it’s the management that lacks basic level of customer service. I see that they’re cutting costs on the wrong things and/or they can’t keep their employees long enough to matter when they are busier than usual. Not enough staff is bad. Me having to ask a magician that wonders around the dining area if he knows who is our server is a bad look. The management needs to look at themselves in the mirror and improve fast. I’m all in on bashing Dave and Busters Auburn from now on. Even my 8 year old son said that Bellevue location is better than Auburn. I regret spending our money there and having our friends and family deal with the poor level of service. We could have had a better time in McDonald’s or the mall cafeteria. What a terrible way to represent your business. Train your servers to come by at least one or two more times per table. It makes a big difference during the patrons’ stay. And you could have had more sales too. Or cough up the money and leadership effort to hire more servers so they’re not stretched too thin. They told us there were only 3 servers during the time of our reservation and it was football Sunday. Ridiculous. What a shame.

    The fish and chips was phenomenal! The philly left a bit to be wanted. The photo and the product proved to be disappointing. My son loved the bacon cheeseburger. Wish we would've got some water to start with, and a refill for my Son and my Spouse would've been nice. It was busy. I do believe we could have been checked on at least once after we got our food.

    We came here for the first time for my son's birthday. From the menu I was very excited about the food but it was very disappointing. Our server got so many things wrong and never really checked back with us to correct them. In his defense he seemed like the only server working the whole dining area. We were there during happy hour and clearly ordered drinks from that menu but got charged the full price. Plates and glasses piled up on our table with no one coming to pick anything up. Not even offered dessert when I announced it was my son's birthday. Definitely not as good as I expected. Will probably not return.

    I booked a reservation for a large party (10ppl), which they were unable to find, telling me I booked it for the following week. I had to show them the confirmation. The server was very pleasant and friendly, but there were minor errors in some of the food orders (no onions, etc). It was loud which we expected, and the family had fun. The bartenders that served my husband and I as we waited for the kids to finish was very sweet and friendly. I will go back, but probably just to play games. Booking a reservation just wasn’t worth it.

    Uncooked bacon and burgers. Made reservations for 6:15. Didn't get seated until 7pm. Server came to table only 3 times. Had to get her attention to get another drink even tho she walked by multiple times. Never checked in if the food was ok. Which the food was not ok. The bacon was undercooked. The burgers were pink in the middle even tho strictly said no pink. And the fries were cold. Asked for ranch. Didn't get any. The whole experience was just so bad. The games were cool tho! Even tho a few of the good ones were down. But will definitely not be eating there again.
