  • If you like to play arcade games and video games is the place to go with kids and at night even with just adults. They have a bar in a restaurant even hibachi restaurant in the back. My son did enjoy ...  more »
  • Although the wait staff was excellent & the food was very good, we were a bit disappointed in the game room. The games were directed to more of an older crowd & the younger kids games were not working...  more »
  • Very crowded but not unbearable. More kids than at other D&Bs I've been to. Long waits for machines. Several machines broken or malfunctioning. Fun time but not great.  more »

  • I was quite surprised to find that their food was DELICIOUS!! Everything we ate was great. Side note: It's unfortunate that in their arcade area, you are allowed to walk around with your drinks because most people leave their glasses randomly around. I guess I would recommend that they have someone going around and cleaning them up more often. I don't feel that it's a D&B issue though, but more so the patrons responsibility, so I still rate at 5 stars.
  • Not a place for adults under 21. We attempted to go here when I was 20 for dinner and to play games on a Friday around 8pm (a normal time for young people to go out). They were carding which I didn't think anything of and figured they were giving stamps to those over 21 like many other places. They refused to let me in because I was not with my parent or guardian. As they declined me a girl who was clearly under 21 came up to the bouncer stumbling over herself completely trashed and he thought it was cute. They missed out on a lot of money from us that night as we had planned a nice dinner and lots of games, and we gave that money to a restaurant who was happy to have me. I had 0 interest in drinking then and very little interest in drinking now that I am over 21, but we have NOT entered a Dave & Buster's since this incident and never plan to. We will happily spend our money elsewhere.
  • The food is surprisingly good, and the waiters are very, very good-- and friendly. During the day, they let you sit in a booth as long as you like while the kids go "play." The service at the kiosks---///The game room are less so. My card would not be accepted at the machine, and the guy at the service desk was noticeably irritated that he had to recharge my grandson's card at his register. Kind of rude considering you're dropping at least $200.00 for lunch & an afternoon in the game room!
  • Dave and busters is the place to be! For the young, and not so young. Amazing innovate food variety. Cool people. Vast amazing plethora of games to spend as long as you want. Food and games always with special discounts to keep the budget low. 5 star entertainment and fun no matter the age.
  • I usually love D&B. My boyfriend and I went and all of the food we ordered was cold by the time we got it. The waiter had really dirty fingernails and it looked like his thumb went into my soup which I sent back. All of our other visits there were great. That must have been an off night.

Where to stay in Philadelphia

Most of Philadelphia's hotels cluster around the compact city center, ensuring quick and easy access to major tourist sights and activities. The only drawback to staying in this area is the lack of free parking, so if you're exploring by car, considering booking into a bed and breakfast in one of the city's residential blocks. Visitors planning on longer stays can also consider several apartment hotels, offering spacious furnished units with complimentary Wi-Fi, free bike rentals, and access to rooftop terraces.
