    Service was good, it was just too loud to be able to hear the waitress and for her to hear us especially because of where we were seated. But other than that it was good.

    Games were a blast. Restaurant service was absolutely terrible. Our server was more interested in chatting with her co workers than doing her job. I would recommend going for games but not food.

    We had a 5:15 reservation & got their and checked in at 5:06. The hostess said we're trying to figure it out come back at 5:15. A welcome in would have been nice. There was over 10 empty tables so not sure why we couldn't be seated early. Our waitress was very nice and have great service. It would have been nice to be asked if we had been there before, which we hadn't and they explained how it works. We didn't end up playing any games. For the price of the food the portion could have been bigger. 9.00 for a kids pizza that is as big as 1 slice was too much. We had to feed our daughter after we left. My husband order the chicken strips which only came with 3 strips and a handful of fries. It looked like a child's portion to be honest. Usually a child's meal includes a drink, so 3.99 for a soda for a kid to have 1 glass is too much. For our 1st time there wasn't really impressed. Not sure we'll be back.

    The games were fun, but the overall dining service was terrible! Waitress Issue: We had a reservation last night and when we got to our table the waitress approached the table looking absolutely annoyed. When she found out from us that we were going to have 14 people, she rolled her eyes at us. My friend tried breaking the ice by saying "you look so excited" and she looked directly at us and said "Ha. No.". From that point it never got better. We were there for several hours and she only checked in with us 3 times. The kitchen was running VERY behind and she never told us until we had been waiting for an hour and we asked about it. The other tables had their server check in with them several times throughout the same time frame. With this long of wait you'd expect the manager to come around to tables, but they never did either. Food Issues: Half of our food order took an hour to get out of the kitchen and the other half took almost 2 hours. When we finally got our food, it was cold and came out wrong. Some guests ordered the Chicken Nachos and it came with out chicken. The bar wasn't quick either, but it was slightly (only slightly) faster. We ended up getting 3-4 rounds of drinks before we got any food. We had planned on getting our food by the 2nd round, but it took WAY too long. Bar: After dinner, went to play games and get a beer. The drink line took 30 minutes with only 2-3 people in front of us. When we got to the counter the server looked upset about having to work. This location needs to do MUCH better. The operations were mismanaged. Almost all employees looked like they hated their jobs and took it out on their customers.

    Went here to watch CFB Championship game with family in tow. Once the place filled up it was pretty clear that the wait staff and kitchen were overwhelmed with orders and had difficulty providing prompt service. Waited about 45 minutes for food to get out to our table and another 40ish minutes to get a second round in (we ordered AYCE wings), so couldn't take full advantage of the deal. Food ended up being lukewarm for some dishes and piping hot for others, just really inconsistent. Ambience was great for the event and nice venue for kids who don't want to sit/watch a game on TV the whole time. Service was the disappointment for this trip.

    I loved to have my songs small gathering for his birthday, I only made the reservation for dinner not the party package. The waiter was a bit overwhelmed with the table and placed our entre in another table, then brought it to us claiming it was not touched. Waters were brought to us at the end he forgot the sauces we had order, do recommend for gathering just be patient.

    Overall it was a nice night and our server was amazing but the host needs some serious retraining. Not only was she very cold and unapproachable but she also legit ignored us standing there until the other worker she was talking to had to tell her we were even there. We were for sure inconveniencing her by being there. The food was okay, our wings were great but the fries were cold and disgusting and not worth the upcharge. It was also a really slow night and there were two bussers standing around and texting while nearby tables sat dirty almost the entire time.

    Great spot to have a mom & daughter night out with my kid. Kids' menu, mocktails, and lots of fun games we both enjoyed. They make it pretty easy for every kid to walk away with some kind of prize for playing. A total blast for us!

    The food was pretty good. Our issue was the service. We made an appointment and were able to get right in, but it took a very long time to get our food. Then our server took a very long time when we were done eating to get us for our check.

    Restaurant seems short-staffed, so everything takes much longer than it should. Our server did the best they could since they had a lot of tables to cover, but what should have been a 1-hour dining experience took 2 hours. The food is really good, just wish there were more servers so the wait isn’t so long. It’s unlikely we’ll dine here again because of the wait.

    We had a reservation, got there, there was no hostess. Tried to sit at a table and bartender told us to see hostess if we wanted to sit… but there was none! She finally appeared, didn’t check our reservation and left for several minutes to come back and tell us they weren’t using the tables anymore and just to sit at the bar. Poor bartender was doing drinks AND serving. Food looked better than expected at least

    We really enjoyed Dave & Busyers the first time we went but still they had SO many issues figuring out the promotions and happy hour and game cards…then again this time it was total chaos with noise and busyness, we had a reservation but weren’t allowed to sit in the good area with big screens unless we waited again for an hour with people who didn’t have a reso, then they still couldn’t figure out how to do the promotions, discounts and gift cards properly. They had to take our phones from us and bring them to their computers in order to scan the barcode for the game discount. It doesn’t feel great to have your phone taken from your care and seems weird they don’t have a better system. I know the employees are trying hard but it feels like they’re not given the proper tools or knowledge of the promos to truly serve customers well.

    We sat there for a half hour while the staff argued with the manager over who had to serve our table (6 people). We talked to 3 different people and only after a server heard me say let's leave and go to shake shack did we finally get a server assigned. My wife's chicken tenders sucked had no flavor, my burger was ok but the service was so bad it ruined the meal on an 80 dollar tab.

    The service was horrible, we went for two Birthday dinners, my son never got his. They totally ignored us after food came out the fries in peoples orders were cold, but the food overall was good. Mgr tried to comp us a few items, but I was still so mad my son never got his dinner! We had four separate checks at table but I feel like mgr shoulda comped the Birthday dinner check!

    We made reservations to watch the kraken game.. they sat us by the tv but had no sound.. asked multiple times and they said they were working on it. Then about an hour into our meal we got sound but it was to another game not the kraken it was some basketball game.. asked again and they said they would get it fixed. Needless to say after one more time asking i stopped and we never got sound to the game.. so we spent $210 to watch a game with no sound.. I local sports team with no other local teams playing .. very poor on them.. I will not go back and will keep going to the Bellevue location where I have never had a problem like this

    Service could use some work there. Hostess was EXTREMELY rude and it was not even busy. Took a really long time to get extra drinks and dips. They used to have a chimichurri bowl on the menu that was delicious and healthy and just removed it, leaving not any healthy options, and that was the whole reason we had chosen to eat there. Overall though the food was tasty. Price was decent.

    Food was tiny portions and beyond gross, salmon was the size of my 3 year olds palm. Fish and chips was one huge piece of all bread. Cesar was soaking old salad and nasty with tomato’s! Server was nice when she was available, she was given to many tables. Will not be back for the food for sure. But will be back for the over priced games :)

    We ordered for 5 people but only 4 orders showed up. We ate are meal and our other party still had not got her food. The food was horrible and they ended up taking 3 meals off of our bill. They did nothing to help the situation and had no idea what they were doing. It’s over priced and so disappointing. I will NEVER go back!

    Drinks took 30 minutes to reach our table and one of them was totally wrong/disgusting. Service took so long to help us we left and ate somewhere else. When we came back to play games it took so long for someone to help us at the bar we just didn't get any drinks
