I think the word "okay" is what best defines this arcade! Before going I knew it was going to be pricy; after all it is 42nd St Times Square. Some games were great but others are just whatever! Prizes are okay.... The perfect amount to enjoy the experience is the $29.00 for nearly 180 points! Friends had a good time... More

We bought a NYE Couple's VIP package paying almost $500. We were placed directly by the buffet so we had people bumping into our table the whole night. The food they did serve (not at all what was advertised) was cold and bland and not worth the money. The game area was oversold to GA with people sitting on the... More

We bought tickets from Balldrop.com to go to Dave & Busters for New Year's Eve. Paid $129 for me and $149 for my son who was under 21. Not sure if it's the establishment itself but towards closer to New Year's Eve, we were not allowed to go outside to see the ball drop by the cops. Everyone across the... More

We had a nice time here on the evening of Christmas Day. It was really busy, but we were just there for the games. Our kids were able to get right up to most games they wanted to play while only waiting a couple minutes on the rest. While we didn't eat while we were there, the food looked pretty... More

The food and service leave something to be desired for any foodies but this was an absolute delight for our kiddies in the heart of Time Square. The arcade was entertaining and adults can walk around supervising the kids with drink in hand.

We recently went to Dave and Busters near Times Square and it's so not worth it. We have two small boys ( 7 and 2 years old). We didn't want to bring them to a fancy restaurant because we knew they wouldn't sit and be well behaved. ( at least the baby wouldn't be) we went to Dave and Busters... More

Granted, they were busy but my guess is that it's always busy on an NFL Sunday in Times Square. Food was okay but poor service more than offset decent food.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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.
