Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have been to Dave and Busters twice now and it is very entertaining. You essentially load a Dave and Busters card and buy x number of credits which you then use to play the various games. The majority of the games give tokens that go automatically onto your card which can then be used to buy prizes.

Based on some rough math the average cost of a game is between 50 cents and a dollar. The first time I loaded $45 on each card and we played for a few hours with some credits left over for another visit.

Just note, that they asked me for ID on the door when we entered, however did not ask my 13 year old for hers so not really sure what that was about but they also asked the adults in the group that went in before us.

Dave & Buster’s is an absolute amazing attraction and entertaining video arcade center.

In September of 2018, I brought and treated myself and my wife at Dave & Buster’s (specifically the Times Square Branch) to celebrate her Happy Birthday Of 2018!!!

Dave & Buster’s is packed with a huge selection of entertaining attractions and games. Both my wife and I enjoyed playing the Terminator, Jurassic Park & the Transformers games!!! We also enjoyed playing hand hockey and shooting hoops!!!

My wife and I had great fun celebrating her birthday at Dave & Buster’s and we definitely recommend for video game fanatics to visit this great arcade!!!

We thought we come to Dave & Buster’s to have a great time together as family. Turns out people get stabbed to death here and management and security guards are incompetent to intervene before the altercation escalated. My family and I a shocked to the core and we will never coming back to this hell hole.

My family and I went to Dave and Busters in Time square after a mets game. We were told to just sit anywhere and someone would be with us. We sat at our table with our 5 kids and everyone was hanging out behind the bar. After about 20 min, I walked behind the bar and they told me someone would be right with me. I then waiting another 10 min and was irate. I went back up again and then was rudely told that I needed to order and pay online. No one told us that at all. I went back and ordered online for the 7 of us, which was so aggravating. The second I put the order in , someone came over and told me I needed to pay. WE DIDNT EVEN GET OUR DRINKS YET! No one even helped us and it was not busy at all. We had been at the table at this point for about 40-45 min with nothing. So finally our drinks came and then we didn't see anyone else for another 30 min. Because no one was paying attention, my kids were able to walk behind the bar and fill their own drinks up 3 times and no one even noticed and no one said anything . Then my husband and I were able to do the same. HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN.!! The bill was paid and you added gratuity when no one helped us and the service was horrible. The table next to us actually went and got a bottle of tequila and was pouring it in their drink because the service was so bad. We are all waiting and the servers are just laughing and hanging behind the bar. We then let our kids go and play in the arcade where at that point, my husband and I got a drink and the bartender charged us 11 dollars and change. We gave her a 20 and never gave the change back. She put it in her tips. Then told us " I figured you were just giving me the rest". At this point I called for the manager. We go to the one in Philly and the service is amazing. This was a horrific experience. I would never recommend this location to anyone. Corporate should be ashamed

I knew not to have high expectations for the food but this D&B’s was abysmal in regards to service. They have an automatic gratuity for parties of four or more persons. That really is no reason to be negligent in providing a service. I absolutely would NOT recommend going here for food.

Visited here on a Sunday evening, the place was pretty empty. We had to wait a good 15-20mins before anyone even attempted to seat us. We finally got seated and ordered some drinks.

The drinks took an absolute age to arrive. Not a great start. Everyone ordered food. I ordered the unlimited wings.

Everyone else’s food arrived and was finished. Still no wings. Our server came over and checked on us. I flagged no wings had arrived, “the kitchen had messed up” was the excuse we revived. So another wait, again place was pretty empty so kitchen was hardly stretched to breaking point.

First round of wings finally arrived! They were pretty good, I ordered my second round. Again an age to wait for them. They arrived at last..

The second order was like they had been taken off someone else’s plate and put on mine. The wings all dried up and had sauce already on them? The fries all dried up and cold. Horrible.

Will never be back and would defo not recommend this place for food or drinks.

We visited for a quick hour before a matinee. The kids loved earning tickets more than the video games, and then spending time picking out prizes on the end. A word to the wise: if your destination is a Broadway show after visiting here, you won’t be allowed in with your shopping bag full of prizes. We had to go back to our hotel to drop things off before returning here.

Visited here a few times during our 5 day stay in NY. Staff were always super helpful and friendly. Machines fixed soon as a problem was mentioned. The lady in the ticket shop was really helpful and gave once again great service. Thanks all for making my sons visit here a memorable one. He always wanted to visit a Dave and Busters now we've done it hes ready to visit another. I hope the staff are as attentive in future ones we visit. Thanks all!
