    They switched to tokens now. Don't bring a bunch of quarters.

    Excellent beer selection, good bartenders, and our favorite lunch in Jersey City.

    Good rotation of games. Bringing in more 90s machines. Switched from quarters to tokens. Good for large groups.

    This place has Damn Good jerky for any upstate New Yorkers in the area or anyone who likes good jerky.

    if it takes you a while to decide what you want to drink, you're going to need a minute lol

    Drunk folks noisy. Not for every day.

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

    Great!!! Beers and arcade games?? What's better??

    Robert Sylvester · July 19, 2015

    arcade games and beer, do you even have to ask any questions? just bring a lot of quarters

    Caroline Albrecht · June 22, 2015

    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.

    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

    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).

    How many bars can you drink beer and play tetris at the same time!? Check this spot out!

    Amanda Petrocelli · March 24, 2015
  • Lorenzo L.

    Solid beer selection. If a line forms behind you, finish your game and let someone else play.

    No more Simpsons game, but th but beer list is great as ever

    Abby Finkel · March 16, 2015

    So much fun! Bring quarters!

    The ultimate Jersey City (& Williamsburg & Flatiron) bar, the best arcade game and beer selection in town

    Jason · January 31, 2015
  • Thomas T.

    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.

    If you ever need coins for laundry just use their token machine ;)

    Love their selection of beers. Very laid back and lots of space. Cool selection of games too, and only for a quarter each

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

    Joe Blossom · October 18, 2014

    The lunch special is a deal. Any beer and sandwich for $10. They'll also serve 5oz tasters for $2-3 each.

    Valerie · September 16, 2014
  • Regina J.

    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.

    Late but FUN Night! :)

    Best craft beer selection in town. The food quality seems to have fallen off in the past year, however.

    Cool games. Good beer. But I could think of better things to do.

    A Williamsburg import, the Barcade brand pairs drinks and food with classic video games. · January 10, 2014

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

    Victor Allen · December 31, 2013
  • Chris C.

    The deviled eggs are gross. Tastes like they are coated with lemon pledge. Horrible experience!!

    Chris Cotto · December 28, 2013
