    Our table was ready upon arrival. Great service. Enjoyed watching football and everyone had their own view from their seat. We were next to the arcade games which was convenient as well.

    The app is garbage and I made reservations and still had to wait 30 mins for a table. Portions for food was small and a bit overpriced.

    Had a awesome time out with my teenage daughter and her friends. The Waiter ( Owen)? was excellent, kept checking what we needed, and was very patient as we waited on the other girls to arrive. The girls all had a blast for moderate money it was a banging good time.

    I book with special instructions that I would be there to view the WWE PPV Extreme Rules. WWE has a contract to show them with the WWE. I also mention that I would there with someone in a wheelchair. And need a regular table height. When I got there, the table wasn’t ready. Once they got a table for us. I had to ask for a regular chair. After we ordered $40 worth of food with drinks. It was time for the PPV to start and many left before the Georgia football game was even over. So start time of the PPV was 8 pm, no it didn’t come on. Went to the bar 5 different times. Still not on. They first tried to tell me that they don’t show them. I replied yes they do because we saw WWE Summer Slam. I asked our waitress to speak with the manger. Who informed me that one of the higher ups forgot to put it on the schedule. I asked how was this possible since their under contract to show them with WWE? He said that someone didn’t do their job. I told them that we would be leaving and If I had known this. I would never have came there. We left and May never go back.

    Typical Dave and Buster's. Standard "Sysco" food and then we played some games. It's not gourmet but it's fun.

    Excellent food. Old bay wings and burgers were some of the best. Funtime playing games. Very loud but expected. Accommodated our request regarding the cold temperature in dining area. Immediately increased temp. Great service. Will be back!

    Sad to bash a place that has only been open 17 months or so, but... The nacho plate was large, but mostly chips and not very flavorful. The wings (8 for $13.95) were terrible. So much so I stopped a manager, he sent new ones. They were just as bad. All skin, very small and just a little meat on them. I didn't eat the first or the second batch. Good staff (Devon & Eli) and fun games. Hope to try again some year... Just my opinion, but a pass for food...

    Took an hour for gf to get her dinner, kids and i had food quickly. Finally manager came and offered her another dish and comped her meal. Was a bit offputting overall but the kids had fun in game area so that was a little better. Manager did come out twice to explain the situation.

    Your new place to watch Pay Per View wrestling events! Bring you friends, family, other wrestling fans, tons of space! Great food and service. I will be back with friends next time! Do yourself a favor, instead of trying to do this at home - come here. And you have no mess to clean up afterwards.

    Service was awesome. We ordered wings and chicken avocado sandwich. The wings were the size of my pinky not worth the money at all. And the sandwich had 0 flavor had to dip in my ranch to enjoy it. The games were fun instead of a photographer walking around taking pics this place needs a magician going from table to table doing tricks…

    The food at Dave and Buster’s was good and I had no complaints about the quality of food. However, from start to finish it took 2 and half hours to get our food and pay the bill. They severely need more wait staff or do something else as it took forever to complete our meal and go play games. Also, one of our group never got their food and we just had it taken off the bill instead of waiting for it even longer.

    Everyone got served except my grandson and me. Finally the waiter brought my grandson some fries but he never offered me anything. Finally, Mr grandson got his hamburger. Layer I got my salad but the kids had eaten and were ready to go play. I took my salad home. The next day I tested positive for Covid and I'm still sick.

    Decided to have my daughter's high school graduation party here....figured that she and her friends would have some fun after eating. To be honest, I wasn't expecting the food to be as good as it was. Ordered a few plates of appetizers and some ordered some meals as well. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Our server (Jose) was attentive, personable, and accommodating (we brought our own custom cake). The game area added some additional fun to a great time.

    There seemed to be only one server and he was as helpful and attentive as he could be with our large late party, but everything beyond his control was well below par. It took over and hour and half for everyone to receive their order and that was only after the server came by several times checking on our table on the orders we placed.
