    We went on a Wednesday afternoon. Knowledgeable bartender, local beers, and all the games were FREE except Mario Kart. A great way to escape the afternoon heat.

    Does not really live up to the hype. There are not that many arcade games to play and it not well kept, but it's free to play on Sunday.
