    The absolute worst for the 2nd time in a row. I have this code linked to my Dave and busters account that basically says I won a $100 value meal for 2 for dine in. No one seems to know how to use the code and I ended up paying. The 2nd time I tried the code, no one including the manager being clueless as if they’ve never seen it before. Even though the code comes from the Dave and busters app and they even emailed me the code. The food is good but the drinks are not worth it. The drinks are not even strong. It’s like drinking kids dull juice pouches.

    The games are not properly maintained and dont work to their full capacity. Servers are very slow and never check up on you. I was also waiting at the bar for 15 minutes before someone asked if i needed something after calling two servers.

    fun place - better than I had imagined. The bar area had a nice ambience and lighting. Food was mainly I guess what you would expect. It would have been nice to have a healthy option. The best I could find was the chicken potstickers - and they were delicious. The margarita wasn't bad, the pinot noir was decent and a decent portion too - all in all we had a great time!

    Our server didn't know what they had on draft. Menu doesn't specify what is draft and what is bottled. Husband asked for a large Hazy IPA. The server brought him back a can. She didn't tell him it wasn't draft. Then later she came back with a seasonal draft that she initially was positive they were out of. They charge extra for extra ranch dressing, no refills on lemonade. Very overpriced and nickle and dime you on everything.

    We arrived 10 mins to check because we were knew we would have to wait for our table. We got there and the guy in the front checked us and and he said it will be a while. I will get back to you on how long the wait is. He never got back to me. Once everyone from our party got there we asked again because he never did get back to us. Once we asked he seated us. I have a feeling if we didn’t ask we would have been waiting for a longer time. We waited 30 mins to get seated. Once we sat down the waiter took our order quickly but never checked in with us again after our food arrived. The food was actually decent. When you come here you are literally just paying for the environment. I would say next time we will eat somewhere else & then just go in to play.

    They were under staffed and didn’t allow us to sit at our table when our reservation was at 9pm due to only half of the party being there “house rules” that’s what the manager called it. The staff also said we needed 16 of the 18. So we go wait by the bar to have some drinks while the rest of us show up. The bar tender walks past us a few times… then later with no eye contact says “I know you have been waiting a million years, I’m not your bar tender but I guess I can help you out since your bartender hasn’t helped you” once we got out reserved table. They didn’t have a waiter for us for a while. Complete defeats the purpose of making a reservation? It was supposed to be a positive experience and memorable for my team and I, it was for sure memorable but for the wrong reasons. This place does have 2 stars on yelp for a reason.

    Very restricted had a big party and they would not serve us drinks until 1 hour after we finished the ones we had. Waitress was attentive but overall experience was horrible, management was horrible and then they sent security to stand by our table and we weren’t being loud or rowdy or anything. Management in this Dave and busters is horrible!

    Our table was cancelled without our knowledge and their excuse was “they don’t take reservations on the weekends.” My appetizer came an hour after we finished our meals and after asking for it 3 times, and it was gross. I love D&B but they were terrible that day

    Very professional accomodating staff. Portions are small but filling. Willing to do substitutions if needed. Friendly manager. The games part they have a lot of cool games were I have never seen these versions of old games like life-size hungry hungry hippos, life size pong, interesting new way to play pacman too. They have a lot of the new games too as well as sports games. If you can handle a noisy fun place then Dave & Buster's is for you!

    The quality of food was bad and not to mention the super loud sound of music. The server did a good job the only down side he was a bit away for a long time had to go look for him a few times. This place use to be our favorite spot i’m not so sure now.

    Customer service was horrible that I will never come back again or recommend this place to anyone. Waitress gave my 16 year old niece a drink without asking for her ID knowing she doesn't even look 21 smh. I had a cook's hair in my food when I let the waitress know she had a attitude. Well I'm the person paying for my food so I should of had a attitude and everything. They need to get it together and get their employees on the right track.

    Service was slow, party of 5 and our meals came out separately over the course of 45 minutes, atrocious table service, terrible kitchen service, food quality was fair at best, 1 out of 5 like their meals. our adult son's and girlfriend had fun at games, until it just got to warm in there to be comfortable.
