    You cannot beat their half off games on Wednesdays! Yup, you heard right! Every wednesdays are half off games and after 9:30pm, their happy hour will start. Their happy hour is from Monday-Friday from 4:00pm-7pm then starts again at 9:30pm until close. So... I would suggest you to plan in between the times to bring your munchkins so they don't get into the bad crowds this place can have sometimes. Try to avoid the bars when your kids are around and also supervise them please. Some parents would actually just leave their kids at the games and go straight to the bar until their kids are done playing. (NOT what a parent should do)

    If you subscribe to their reward card, you'll get some good offers. For example, free appetizer if you spend this much for game pts or purchasing a family package that contains game points to play and food! Now, that's a steel! Other than games and food, they also have pool tables. That, you will need to purchase with the front desk. I am not sure what happens if you lose your card because whatever ticket you win, you're suppose to deposit into your card and DO NOT LOSE IT. Not sure if you can retrieve, so have fun and be safe!

    is it me or is DnB starting to look a bit "loungish"? I gotta say the new and improved, revamped DnB is def looking quite classy!
    They even added a bunch of new games that people usually play on their own smart phone! Everything is new and clean, including the main bar with a couple of hd big screen TV's plastered all over!

    Now that the gangsters gun shooting had sorta died down since 2004, they are finally allowing to go back upstairs again for more booze and open smoking area!

    Ok I am highly disturbed by this Dave & Busters. Seriously I thought it was a place for adults to have fun and drink, especially at night after 8 or 9 pm it was supposed to be or used to be kid free.

    Well here I am strolling in at 9:30-9:45 pm and there are more kids than adults in the joint. Wait is this Chuck E Cheese's or D&B? Apparently its Chuck & Busters unbeknownst to me. But hey what better way to go party than with your kids while you are swilling beer or whiskey or God only knows what. Then lets just pack up everyone from the fam bam into the mini van and cruise around drunk as (*&%$%! Way to be an outstanding parent and a great big giant KUDO's to D&B for facilitating kids being driven around by drunks.

    So you may be wondering how do I know this, well that answer is simple. My buddy and I stopped in here for a quick drink (way way way too pricy $7.50 for a pint O_O) before watching a movie next door. So when we then left the theater at 1:00 am, a steady stream of patrons was leaving D&B including about 33% or more being kids under the age of 12! These kids were not even teens yet. Seriously WTF are you thinking parents let alone D&B what happened to your no kids at night policy? Maybe I should bring my 7 yr old here and just chill till they close! what a fun idea that is =D

    So they had a "rooftop" lounge which had a chance to be a great chill spot, but being it was the only place kid free, it was overrun with 20 somethings and some old folks. I thought it was a chill part of D&B and wished the whole place was like that.

    I do love all the beer towers that I saw all over the place. Gotta love buying draft in bulk, I just wonder how cold it stays and how many beers come out of those towers, they looked 4' tall!

    So yeah I dont think I will be back as I am not keen on drinking amongst a bunch of rugrats a bunch of which seemed untended. Seriously folks, this isnt a good place to bring your kids and because of it, I was anything but happy with this joint. I am honestly disappointed by this trip.

    Food's decent and there's tons of entertainment! This is a fun place to play some games and reminisce about childhood memories of playing in arcades. Also a decent place to catch a game if you're a sports fan.

    This place is awesome! There are a lot of arcade games, and they get new games all the time (the configuration has changed multiple times as I've been there over the course of the past few years, as they've added more games). Check this - the dining room part isn't bad...if you get that "lawnmower salad"...a WORLD of salad, I loved it. Prizes are cool too, something for everyone.

    A fun place to feel like a kid again yet also be able to down a beer or two or three... The cocktail, mixed drinks are pretty weak but they have good happy hour prices.

    It's a good place to show off your competitive, yet childlike nature. :)

    One of the few places that have a lot of arcade machines in good condition. They also have a good selection of basketball and football game machines.The prices are a bit high but I think it's worth it for the good machines and helpful service people who's there to fix broken machines and give you refunds if necessary. The game prizes are pretty good too.

    I've spent a lot of time at this place and I love hanging out there. The only reason it doesn't get five stars is because it's expensive and the food is just plain and average. I like to get a drink and play the trivia game against other people.
