    Very loud and slow service. The food was ok but not with the price and the power cards went very quickly. Definitely not a win for the tween set plus grown up.

    It’s a great place to go and hang with your family and friends. The service was superb. Where we sat, closer to the entry, away from the games, wasn’t noisy at all. We all ate well for a very reasonable price. For sure we’ll be back.

    Good food at a good price. Our server was polite, patient and professional. Family really enjoyed our time. Good value, money well spent on a family outing, with fun bonding. Suggestion, card rechargeable kiosk that accept cash on game floor. But overall a good time. Thanks for providing this type of location D&B.

    Brought the family on Saturday night. We had an excellent time. We had a reservation at 6:30. Service was friendly, the food was not bad at all for a venue like this. If you have dietary restrictions I would recommend you plan ahead. However, they do offer an impossible burger and gluten free bun if you’re into that. It’s very loud in there between the music played over the speakers throughout and the games themselves, but again, that’s the venue. So bring ear plugs or something of the like if you’re sensitive to that. We ate, we played and the time flew. We’ll definitely be returning!

    The waitress was very good but she didn’t check up on us very often. They seemed to be short staffed and the bill coming out to $90 was not worth it. The only thing that was very good was the wings. We had reserved a table and when we got there they said they said they don’t reserve tables and to sit anywhere but I had reserved a table online so not sure why they said they don’t. Overall would not eat there again but the games are fun.

    Good fun for the family. Pretty expensive. Downside is they definitely water down their drinks. When you order a double skinny margarita you definitely should be able to taste the tequila. Took buying a another shot separately and pouring it in to taste anything.

    Was an extremely busy night, with the fight showing. But did not have a problem with that. My family still had a good time playing the games. The service however was not good. Our server never checked on us and had to ask several other servers for drinks, etc… in which no one helped.

    I went to Dave & Buster's with my family of four on a Saturday night. We had a mostly good time, but there were a few things that could have been improved. The food was decent, but not great. The chicken tenders were a little dry, and the fries were a bit soggy. The burgers were better, and the pizza was pretty good. The drinks were also good, and the selection of beers on tap was impressive. The arcade games were a lot of fun. We played a variety of games, including skee-ball, air hockey, and the claw machine. We also played some of the newer games, like the virtual reality experience. The games were all well-maintained, and the staff was helpful in explaining the rules. The service was a little slow at times. We had to wait a long time for our food, and our drinks were refilled infrequently. However, the staff was friendly and attentive, and they were always happy to help us find a game or order a drink. Overall, we had a good time at Dave & Buster's. It's a great place to go for a family outing or a night out with friends. However, the food could be improved, and the service could be a bit faster.
