Large menu covering the usual 9 types of burgers, steaks, fish, quite a few salads. Even puddings if you imagine you'll have space. Rack of ribs, shared starters of many types e.g. nachos. Quite a different experience they also have a gaming arcade you can use (costs extra but looked to be discounted). Very young family friendly, birthday parties, etc... More

After seeing a Broadway play, the restaurants that were open were packed. As a last resort we decided to just grab a quick bite at Dave and Busters. When I say the waitress was rude, that is a total understatement. It took forever to get our food and we were some of the few even in the place. The drink... More

Ive been to other D & B s and this is by far the worst. Tried sitting at the bar and it was very dirty..dirty glasses all over the bar, service was terrible etc. Went to restaurant area and it was much worse. Super rude bartender with a "I dont want to be here look" and attitude. This is the... More

The service and wait time were MUCH better than expected. Being a party of 10 we thought it would take us forever to get seated but only waited 10 minutes. The thing about this location that is better than the local neighborhood ones is this one is their pilot test store. Which means you can order food items here that... More

Walked in & thought the place was closed, the TVs were on so we sat at the bar. Server turned up & left menu & left. Had a couple of drinks & food, as I said don't bother, plenty of other bars in NY.

Decided to go here for my daughter 18th birthday as we were over from the uk celebrating. Picked here as it seemed a fun place to spend the evening. How wrong could we have been.....

We tried here for the first time and was really impressed, really good selection of food and drinks at reasonable prices. Service was very good and everything very tasty,. Have lots of promotions for happy hours and deals on food. After this our son tried out the arcade which was great fun with a large selection of games.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
