    Went for a family’s 12th bday and it was perfect! A little something for everyone and the food was inexpensive. We shared a little bit of all the appetizers amongst a party of 7 and it was all good! Nothing went to waste either.

    The food could have been better. I think Dave & Busters is a great family place to bond and play games. If the food wasn't mediocre, the business would be a great hit. I ordered the cantina chicken nachos and I was not impressed. They were gross. But overall, we had a great day celebrating my son's birthday and playing games. Our server was also great and attentive, but the food was not worth the money nor the wait.

    Excellent food and atmosphere! My son discovered approximately 15 games that were not working. Specifically, the card readers for the player cards said they had no connection to wifi. If you can't pay, you can't play, so those games were basically unusable. The staff seemed unconerned and that was disappointing. Otherwise, our visit was great!

    our experience at dave and busters wasn’t very good. we had waited about an hour and thirty minutes for our food while watching other tables that were seated AFTER us, get their food first. our server and the manager were really understanding when we told them we wanted to cancel items in our order. one of the girls that had brought out our food when we were canceling, i’m not sure if she was having a bad night but she rolled her eyes at us and gave us a lot of attitude because we canceled the food and we weren’t even being rude about it. my cousin had told her that we get they were super busy but waiting over an hour and watching others get their food before us when getting there after, that’s not okay so we were going to cancel. other than that, my server was amazing, she did what she could for us and the manager was great too. i work in customer service so i know things happen, but we won’t be coming back :(

    My friends and I had a get together. It took more than 30 minutes to be acknowledged then we ordered our food and drinks and we did not get any silver wear and straws. We received silver wear 5 min later but not our straws. Until 10 min later that we asked again for straws. Food and drinks were ok. When we asked for out tab we asked for it to be divided individually, server looked annoyed at our request.

    The food was good but Our waitress was awful she lacked communication skills , didn’t bring us napkins for our wings , kept forgetting to bring us the things we asked for, we waited about 25 minutes for soda and water and there were barely any people there . She couldn’t remember anything we ordered when it came to split the bill . And didn’t acknowledge when the rest of our party showed up didn’t ask them for drinks or anything just dropped our appetizer on the table and left without a word then came back about 20 minutes later and just stared at them waiting for them to order didn’t even say hello or what can I get you

    We had a last minute Thanksgiving cancellation due to illness and were surprised to see D&B's was open. We had such a great time! We played games, grazed on apps and watched football. In the end, I spent less than what I would on ingredients for Thanksgiving dinner and put no effort into cooking, just spent a whole day of family fun. We decided on our drive home that this is our new tradition. And the service was so kind! Even though they were working on a holiday, everyone was really nice.

    Food was as you expect from a chain place, but it was all hot and came out in a timely manner. Our server was nice, but we did have to get her attention a few times when we needed something. Games were good, floors a little dirty.

    The basketball game was on a bit loud so i had to yell my orders repeatedly for my waitresses to hear me. My voice was ruined by the time the check came. Other then that the food was great, staff was very nice and the games were fun.

    We were celebrating my Birthday, that been said. Our waitress was amazing, always checking on us to make sure everything was going well. Plus she was able to adjust or discounts/promotions. Not like our last visit the employees didn’t bother to adjust our receipt. Overall our experience on 10/20/23 was amazing.

    I reserved a table for 10 but looks like no one that worked there got the memo. I arrived and told the bar tender (due to no one being at the front) that I had a reservation. The bar tender looked at me with such confusion and told me that she was going to notify the manager. After waiting for 20 minutes a table was finally available for us. The server tried her best but kept forgetting orders. The food was alright, the experience was less than alright.

    Very good food. Excellent kind, people-centered service. Fun place for families. Visually energetic and engaging setting. Important Point: The volume level was such that we could not hear each other in conversation at the same table; further we could not hear any of the sports content being broadcast. The sheer number of televisions and arcade machines competing for prominence made picking out any particular sound content difficult at best. The decibel levels made ordering food difficult as well. I suggest that the general volume level be evaluated by an impartial third party and measured for safety. These were hands down the highest volume levels I have to date ever experienced in a restaurant or arcade.

    The management is aweful here. No one knows what’s going on and everything takes forever. It took 45 minutes to get a beer to our table and more mistakes than I could count. Our server was very nice and communicated but had more tables than she should have. This place would make sooooo much more money if it was managed in a more efficient way

    This was the perfect place to have a Birthday Dinner and games for my now 16yr old son. The food was excellent and the server was helpful and attentive. We even bought our Power Cards from her, and that worked out well. The kids (me included) had a great time playing games and then shopping in the redemption center. A perfect night.

    We went to celebrate a Birthday and Father's Day. We ate in the sports dining area and then went off to play games. Everything was great. The only problem I had was that the service was a bit slower on this day, though I couldn't see why when there wasn't that many people on our side of the business. The food was great and came out very efficiently with our appetizers and food coming out within about 10 minutes of each other. The drinks were great and were refilled nicely as well. Just had a long wait to get service at first and to receive our bill at the end.

    The food was not at all good. The menu looked amazing but nothing on the menu that looked amazing was available! Expensive and not worth it. The games were not good either. They would not play when activated and would charge you multiple times! Also the games would not give the tickets you won! Unfair and poor quality overall

    Our food took over an hour to come out. Our drinks took over 20mins to get to table. Our server was inattentive. Had to flag her down multiple times for refills or ask where our food was. A manager was informed and never came to the table to check on us. Overall one of the worst dining experiences. We were there to celebrate my sons graduation and it took away from that experience.

    I took my daughter and her friends to celebrate her 14th birthday. The process from reserving online, to arrival at D&B, to the food & service overall was excellent. I read a few bad reviews regarding customer service or poor food quality but that was not the case for us. Our reservation was at 4:30pm but we arrived early and had a few extra guests last minute. The front desk did not give me a hard time and were able to accommodate all 15 (original reservation was for 10). We were seated after 15 minutes upon arrival and our waiter Edwin was amazing. He was patient and took all orders efficiently with a smile. Food didn’t take long, was fresh with great portions and sooo goood! I gave everyone the option to order whatever they wanted so we had chicken strips, pizza, nachos, korean sticky ribs, sandwiches, wings,and burgers. Overall, it was the best experience for my daughter and her friends. We all had a great time. Thank you again Edwin for your awesome service. We will be back and hope we get you again. ☺️

    We had great service. I’m really glad I did it this way vs their bday package. The adult food and fries were wonderful. However the Mac n cheese was not the best thing to order. Kids did not eat it. I’d recommend ordering a diff kid item.
