    Very fun and different kind of night out. Long list of drinks you've probably never had but should definitely try. Games are 25 cents so bring lots of quarters. Ask and get a free hot dog

    Great selection of craft beers. What's especially nice is that they change them up all the time to match the season. Old arcade games at old prices are awesome too! Food options are limited.

    They've got some good sandwiches, great deviled eggs and beef jerky but the real reason you are here is to drink craft beer from the ever-changing selection of 24 taps and play video games

    Excellent rotating selection of beers, delicious menu. Break out of the box& try new items. Daily beer list describes each, so u don't have to order blind. Weekdays are less crowded, and open til 2.

    Went back to Barcade recently - must say, the menu was MUCH improved. Beer selection wide and varied as ever. Vibe remains casual if still a bit too hipster (trends have life cycles, after all).

    My favorite bar of all-time. Great selection of arcade games, and very wide selection of excellent microbrews. The best part is they're constantly getting new microbrews in- always something new!

    I love that bar. Great selection of beers and amazing arcade games. Spend some time with your friends. Try to beat them in archaic old games. Gotta love 80's.

    Craft beers matched with original arcade games for 25¢ each. Sure, you could trek to Brooklyn for the same experience, but this location is just as close and less crowded. — Ben T., Creative

    Classic games with superb tap beers, what's not to like? Bring 3 friends and hit up the 4 player games like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the Simpsons and NBA Jam.

    The nutella and bacon is a yes! Barcade always has a perfect selection of beer and the size of this place makes it super easy to get comfortable. Plus the bartenders are so so nice.

    The games you loved as a kid. The music you loved as a teen. The women you loved as a college student. The beer you loved as a twenty something... How refreshingly depressing!

    Really good beer selections! Good bar food! Good place to hang with friends! Make sure you bring a marker w you to the bathroom to add your own tag!!

    I think they have one of the best beer selections in my opinion. Good atmosphere and the arcade theme just makes you feel like a big ass kid again.

    Perfect for grabbing a cold beer and playing a few games, or just hanging out. The nachos are a solid plate to share.

    Good if you love craft beer on tap, even better if you love arcade games. The patty melt ain't bad either.

    Try the curried tuna with mint sandwich. Homemade pickles are great match for the beer. Bathrooms are a little rough for a new place.

    Great beer and arcade game selection. The food is pretty good, too. The worst part is that it can be really crowded at times.

    1980s arcade games and A-list tap beers, minus Brooklyn hipsters. Jersey knows how to do beer and games.

    Deviled eggs are horrendous. They must use lemon to keep it from browning but it makes for a disgusting deviled egg!!! 👎👎👎👎👎
