    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    So much fun! Come Wednesdays for $10 unlimited hour arcade play. Half price weekday games too. Just watch out for the bartenders - very rude!

    Very fun place! Loved the games. 4 person air hockey is the best! The food and beer was good too. All Star Weekend was great in D&B.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Came here for a function. Usual bar food. Cheesy spinach dip good but stale corn chips. Oh well happy hour till 7.30 on long cocktail list.

    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.
  • AJ M.
    Excellent air hockey. Sugary drinks with gimmicks like glow in the dark ice cubes. Food is awful but I promise you'll have a good time.

    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 : )

    Pretty cool arcade hall and a perfect destination to kill an hour before you're off to your next adventure. Use the game tickets you won to buy yourself a souvenir or give them to the kids.

    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.

    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)
