The food was great and the service (Dominic was our waiter) was equally as great. Could not of asked for more. The gaming section was reasonable priced for the vast array of games available.

Overcrowded with people... The food area seemed uninviting. I was going to eat at this establishment; and opted for Applebee's. Establishments nowadays are suppose to be family friendly clean and inviting. Staff was a little pushy in moving you threw the line; and up selling the tokens. Not fond of this location but it is Times Square expect a large... More

My girlfriend and I decided not to eat here to save our wallets, so this is just based on games and drinks. They have a good amount of games and a cool atmosphere. The game selection is varied, fun, and has lots of multiplayer options if you're here with some friends. That being said, it's expensive. You should expect high... More

Chewy and greasy hamburger, poor tasting pigs in a blanket. Disorganized wait staff. Unclean table and dishes. Overpriced on top of all that. Hit the arcade if you must but eat elsewhere!

Nothing impressive here. Food was just like frozen freezer food that I could make for less than what my bill was. The only positive thing about the restaurant was the arcade to keep the kids busy and occupied

Great food, so much choice! Affordable if you can find a deal otherwise it can be very costly. The Mac'n'cheese is amazing, do try it! We went at an extremely busy time so service was a little slow but still it was good overall. Would go back here for the amazing food and friendly staff. The location was great too!

Definitely worth a visit if they have deals on, but it can be expensive if not. We had a couple of coupons so had some food, plus it was happy hour so we had a few cheaper drinks (its just bud light though so happy hour is probably the only time I would drink this stuff, honestly how you Americans...

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.
