    Long wait. Felt like we were sitting in a construction site. Lots of noice from stuff being dragged back and forth through the restaurant. Dirty, and tables took forever to be cleaned. Nice server though.

    Drink wise- they had amazing drinks and selection as well. Game wise- they had an amazing selection on games even though some weren’t working but overall amazing games. Food wise- I would not recommend. I made a reservation for a table to celebrate a friend’s birthday. And the server forgot my food. We reminded them twice and they told us they were going to check up on my order. My order finally came out after like a hour of waiting for it and it was wrong. So I didn’t even end up getting anything afterwards. They also brought food and drinks to the table that we didn’t even order which was on the check (same with my food) that we ended up telling our server about it twice until she finally took it off the check. Since we sent the food and drinks back that we did not order.

    Nick was our waiter. He was exceptional. Everything was great until unfortunately a customer, who may jave been emotionally disturbed, started turning over tables and throwing plates. Nick, our waiter,and the restaurant manager were quick to restrain this person. It took at least 20 minutes. Fortunately, my party and I had completed our meal and were waiting to pay the check. The manager apologized for the disturbance and we received a small discount. They also gave us the military discount we qualified for.

    We had a booking wednesday 29th of june. Upon arrival the staff told us that the whole restaurant where booked by one single company. Earlier on that day we confirmed our booking by text upon their request. The staff only told us ”What can we do? They booked out the place”. We told them that maybe they could have contacted us but the staff just turned their back on us. We also think that they could have offered us to come back the day after but they didn’t. Such a disapointment for us and our kids (8 and 10 years old). Truly unproffesional.

    Hello I Booked for my son and his friends at 6 pm. When everyone gets there, they surprised us that the whole lounge was booked by a celebrity at the last minute!!! What about people having reservations!!! Then why Dave & Buster’s didn’t update people with cancellations!! A wasted time and effort for ever including my son’s friends who are angry with him now!! Thank you, Mona

    We made our way to the restaurant to find it closed for a private event. Why would you let us book a reservation for a place that was closed?

    Most of the fun machines are either out of order or taking points out your card without it letting you play the game.

    The customer service was very good. However, the floors were sticky. My husband was feet literally almost walked out of his shoes while walking to our table. One of the appetizer plates were dirty. Above that, our server, cherish, was very helpful and took great care of us.

    service was absolutely abysmal. like almost comically awful. don’t bother going to the restaurant. also half the games were busted. so don’t bother with the arcade. oh and the photo booth in the entry way doesn’t work, so don’t waste your time there either. maybe just go elsewhere

    Took our 9yo for his birthday with some friends. Set up adults at a table while kids played. Food is quite good for burgers, salads and appetizers. Good value for Manhattan. Sunday afternoon was relatively quiet and kids were able to play without any issues. Will be back

    They were ready for us to celebrate my daughters 18th birthday on time and with fast service. Our server was patient with us being a 14 top of young adults plus me and we were off playing games in no time.

    Terrible experience. Server needs way more training in basic manners. Took 30 minutes to even get water, and our drinks took even longer. No apology or explanation from the server or manager. Food came out staggered and cold. Sides we ordered didn’t make it to the table, but they made it to the bill. Manager didn’t want to take it off until we argued it. Overall bad experience. Our server came by maybe once and hardly checked on us. Awful.

    My mom and I took my brother out for his birthday and our server, Nickholas, was sooooooo sweet, funny, and attentive. He answered all our questions about game chips and the food menu. He made the experience memorable and amazing. Thank you Nickholas! Overall the food and drinks were good and the gaming experience was fun. It wasn’t overwhelmingly packed for a Friday night but I think the later it got, the more people went. We got there at 7pm.
