    Affordable drinks and a great selection of arcade games in mostly working order.

    Beer selection is disappointing, but where that is lacking, they make up for with arcade games and SKEE-BALL!!! Arcade selection is not as diverse as i was hoping, but they have SKEE BALL, & its FREE!

    Front room is loud and annoying. The back room has a bunch of really nice vintage games like teenage mutant ninja turtles

    Nothing is good here. The bartenders ignored me and my friend. Stayed on their phones the entire time. It took them 15 minutes to notice us. I was a bartender downtown before and this is unacceptable.

    A new addition for 2012. Perfect for those times when you're wandering down Sixth Street with a strong hankering for a beer and some Ms. Pac-Man.

    The scoring mechanism on the two skiball machines is really screwed up. If you're trying to compete, use the same machine.

    When all the lights are turned on and the music stops, that is their subtle way of asking you to leave.

    Donatello doesn't work :-( and on MVC2 you can't jump on left side and kicks don't work on right. But its fun!

    Free games are a draw but a lot of them are not functioning completely. Broken buttons & dead pinball paddles.

    Many machines were broken, or had broken controls. Disappointed.
