    The perfect place to bond- a classic arcade with the best games (new and old)! We love the sports-bar-style setting and American food. We all had a very intense match of Dance Dance Revolution.

    Dave and Busters is a great experience for the family. Located in the heart of Times Square, it is a great place where customers can eat great food and play a variety of arcade games.

    Located in the center of Times Square D&B is great for bday parties, corp events, holidays, & more. The games are kid-friendly, but kick it up a notch to an adults-only level with their full bar. #fun

    You can totally life-hack the game Blast Off. Cover the lights with your arm + stand real close. When the "8" lights up, press the button to perfectly nail the JACKPOT for a minimum of 250 tickets!

    This dave and busters is much smaller than it looks, old games, and pretty crowded due to location. Most games, other than racing, are a maximum of 2 players at the same time (fyi group traveleres)

    Drinks are expensive when it isn't happy hour but they are worth it. The drinks taste really good and are actually quite strong. Just remember that they charge an automatic 18% gratuity.

    Stay clear, my wife and I thought it be fun for a last night dinner in NYC. We walked in no one noticed we looked around for someone to seat us. We went to Applebee's downstairs instead.

    Nice family arcade. DDR machine is always busted due to not being properly maintained but people try to play it anyway. The machine doesn't accurately pick up the arrow sensors when stepped on.

    Events should be fun.D&B can help you host the perfect event so everyone can let loose. Ask about private rooms, business meetings, team-building activities and chef-crafted menus.

    Air Hockey. Great table here. Honestly, as good as any I have played on and as big as they get so no worries about crossing that center line. Play fast and loose but try not to let it fly off.

    Well, it's one of the few places (as in only place) in New York where I can find a bunch of shooters and Ms. Pac-Man together. Eat wings, play "Rambo," knock yourself out.

    The automatic 18% gratuity is a joke! They do not tell you they are doing it so you end up overtipping. This is on all food and drink any number of people. I will never go back!

    DDR X. Pads are a bit off, you'll get several greats but few missed or ghost steps. It's also really loud in here, but the machine is loud enough to listen to comfortably.

    Carefree spot for a date. However, dominate your date by winning all games. Remember no mercy! Use your winnings & purchase a gift for your date at the store. It may heal your date's wounded pride : )
