    Restaurant staff was very rude, the light skin girl with glasses and braces that seated us was about to catch a beat down can’t lie and my server was nice but completely forgot about my party, brought our drinks out 40mins after we ordered them and our food didn’t come out until 8:36 mind you my reservation was at 5 , we were seated at 5:47. Overall restaurant service was beyond poor but play was a 10.

    We arrived for our reservation time and were told we had a 1.5 hour wait. It was difficult to even locate the hostess stand once we were inside the place, but when we did, she was rude. We left and ate somewhere else.

    Even though we had a reservation, apparently it meant nothing. They told us it would be a 30 minute wait. We chose to leave.

    Worst experience ever. Showed up but despite reservations no table. Took over an hour to get food. Had to then wait fork silverware. Had to track down manager 3 times to get anything… drinks, napkins, the check. Food tasted ok when we finally got it. Very obvious that management and staff have no work ethic. We will NEVER EVER GO BACK TO THAT DUMP.

    We went to Dave & Buster's to celebrate our sons' 18th Birthday. The dining area was over the top loud by music and televisions. You could not hear any staff members speaking directly to you. The manager seems bothered and not interested in the fact I made a reservation for my family of 5. The waitress/hostess seems bothered as well that she had to work. We were not greeted by either upon walking to their desk station. After being directed (hand signals only) to our table, we were greeted by our waitress who was polite though hard to hear her cause of the noises. Our food came out in parts, by the time our last plate arrived, the first two were cold. The fries were over cooked, the salad was drenched in dressing, and the cheese thing was rubbery. All the meat though was cooked thoroughly. Family of 5 (two ate off kids meal) ($181.00) Presentation was seriously lacking. We also had a hella time getting food boxes to go. Manager didn't want to get our waitress proper boxes from storage. The place is full of small children under the age of 10 playing on games, no parents or adults to be found. After we ate, we went to play games ($140.00) most games were broken (no note attached but would take your credits/points). Would had enjoyed our time more if everything was as advertised. You can get the same prizes at Dollar Tree or Five Below stores. The bathrooms, no soap, no paper towels, no toilet paper except three stalls, floors were dirty and counters near sinks were messy. This place needs NEW MANAGEMENT !!! And most employees need to be TRAINED!!! We do not recommend and will not return!

    The server Bre was really friendly and assisted with the needs of the guests. The kitchen was backed up a bit, but that didn't stop her from checking on us and making sure we were ok while waiting for our food.

    Horrendous experience. From our arrival nothing positive at this Dave and Busters in New Orleans. 1. Disputed our reservation 2.Table server had absolutely no idea of what she was doing (no knowledge or training on drink or food offered) 3. Multiple appetizers ordered at 5p, food never arrived by our departure at 6:10 4. Drink orders never delivered to table 5. Had to find server to request check 6. We were Asked to pay for drinks that were never received Abomination of a restaurant management

    my dining experience was horrible. i waited for over 20 mins, not a single waiter came by to take my order. a male waiter (light skinned w/dreads eventually came to the table beside me to take their order. i asked him if he was taken mine also. he replies with "that girl over there is suppose to take it", a middle aged, dark skinned woman with extremely long faux lashes. she stared at me. but, continued on with her conversation with a group of waiters, standing by and doing nothing but laugh and drink. i eventually went to there bar and asked the bartender to take my order. Lori was extremely gracious and despite her customers at the bar she assisted me with making me several drinks and taking my tables order. i appreciated her service greatly. i would have left but my 8 yo daughter really wanted to stay. there was no manager, no leadership on the floor supervising or ensuring that the floor staff was doing the right thing. i will never return to that location. btw, it was no busy, i went on a wednesday @ 5pm. there was only one other family present. the rest were sitting and being serviced at the bar.

    Took forever to get our food! My son ordered Mac N Cheese and his was the last to come out 45 min later. We gave him some of our food and by the time his came out he was full. We ordered the creole dip for appetizer and that didn’t come out until the Mac N Cheese came out which was after we got our actual food and we sent it back bc the chips were cold and fried hard! Strawberry Lemonade was watered down. We should have gotten a refund

    Food was basic and bland, game options were very low and a third of those games were broken but would still take your chips, talked to a couple staff members about the broken games who did nothing about it just looked annoyed that we were even talking to them about it. Would not recommend this place Chuck E. Cheese is a better option for your money

    I gave 2 stars for overall because of the games! We literally sat there for 20 minutes being ignored on a slow night! Multiple waiters, Bartenders and managers walking right by ignoring us. I finally flag a waiter down, explain it’s been 20 minutes without being acknowledged by a employee. He apologized takes our drink order…25 minutes later I have to walk up to the bartender who was ignoring us and told him I’ve been sitting here for 45 minutes now!!! Is that long enough to get a beer?? Finally get a beer after 50 minutes, order our food and it was complete slop! Go for the games! Eat and drink somewhere else

    There were only two servers who were helping in the kitchen as well. We reserved for a party of 7 and there wasn’t a table for us. Nobody brought a high chair for our baby and nobody took our order..we never ordered and walked out. We went to another restaurant instead.

    It was a nice environment. I went for my birthday my waitress was the best she did the best she could but what she was given by her employer. Half the menu was out of stock. Never go when there's an event at the Superdome because it's hard to enjoy yourself when you have Superdome attendees taking up all the space.

    The bill was confusing some how I paid 100 then another 303 which I'm not sure how or why when 303 should have been my total. The cheese didn't even melt on my burger because my burger was cold.

    Service was the absolute worst. Waitress brings drinks and informs us that she is leaving and someone will bring out food. After an hour wait. No food. Proceeded to ask another waitress about food. Food comes all, both burgers burnt and cold, ice cream was completely melted. I asked for a replacement and server was rude. We left the table, food untouched.

    Very disappointed with the service. Reservations were made several hours before. When we arrived we were sat at a table by the hostess and no sever showed up to assist. Eventually we figured out we had to order and pay by our phones. Someone showed up at the table and asked if we had seated ourselves at the table and we explained a hostess had seated us. We were told we were not supposed to be sitting there but we were not moved to another table. Eventually one ordered showed up but not the other. Again someone asked why we were sitting there, we explained again and after waiting several more minutes the next food order arrived but not the drinks. We asked again about our drinks and no one ever brought them. Every server who interacted with us was very rude and rolling eyes at us.
