This place has made some errors in judgement regarding the Tulsa area market, and so this review is for you, D&B management.

As a regular customer to this location, and entertainment industry insider, take this as free consulting advice from a long-time Tulsa resident.

First off, you have miss-calculated your opportunity to take advantage of Tulsa's severely limited night-life options.

Yes, you thought this smaller store would be more of a Family Entertainment Center, and it is, during the day. However, with IPC just down the road, and Tulsa's strongly Christian demographic, some families you will simply NOT win over, just because you are mixing a bar with a game room. But that's okay. Promote family dining and entertainment during the day, but DO NOT close your wonderful bar and night-life venue at 11:00 every night.

At your grand opening, you were hustling hundreds of potential customers out the door and closing at 11 and midnight, and shooting yourselves in the foot big time.

Just down the other side of the road is a bar called Fox and Hound (at 71st & Garnett). They are open until 2, and serving food right up until close. They have a few games, counter-tops, pool, big screens, and they are packed, and eating your revenue. YOU have a better, more exciting bar than they do! You could have practically shut them down if you had stayed open until 2 every night and built your crowd of 20-something regulars up. But you kicked them all out early and now they're back down there at the Fox.

And no pool tables? I understand perfectly the corporate mentality that led to this ill-fated decision. You believe that during peak hours, it takes too long to shoot a game of pool, where as coin-op vids and redemption offer quick, repeat-value that produces more revenue per square foot.

Well guess what? Your "peak" hours have dwindled, haven't they? And yet you have a wonderful bar, and in the off hours and late hours, people would be on those tables, DRINKING YOUR DRINKS. That is what pool tables are for. Of course they are not profitable, by themselves. But you NEED THEM to complete your facility.

And--back to the FEC aspect--stop making redemption pay outs smaller and smaller. Your revenue is dropping, and you will only chase off more families and regulars if they feel they are not receiving a good value.

When you are down, you should give out more prizes. And increase your hours to reclaim the crowd you ran off in the beginning.

That's my advice, take it, or leave it. I wish you well, and respect D&B's. I've had good times there both in Dallas and in Tulsa. I just don't want to see you guys throw in the towel here.

This is a good restaurant to go to . The food is very good and the staff is very friendly. I've gone their a few times and have never had many complaints. The food comes out in a good amount of time.

They offer some good promotions from time to time. It has a pretty good feel to it for the most part and the seatings are a good size and spacey.

The only problem I have at times is kids running around the game area. There is a sign stating that kids under 14 should be accompanied by parents, but I have seen 8, 9, or 10 year olds running by (barely missing me) with no parent in site. The staff will see them but they don't say nothing and just ignore it.

At dinner time on Fridays, there are plenty of people there drinking and having fun. That's when they should at least go with there rule. But still I see kids running around which I find dangerous. There are other Dave's and Buster's that won't let children under 18 go to there restaurants. I believe that should be enforced or they should at least make sure the child is with there parent and not running around.

D&B is supposed to be a place for "grown-ups."

I have gotten plenty of tickets from D&B and have redeemed plenty of great prizes. A mobile grill, t-shirts, jackets, blender, ect. So that's great if you make enough tickets. I haven't gone there in a while because it was turning into a kid-zone. So if you don't mind rug-rats running around then I'd suggest it. But next time I go I plan on going to one with an 18 or older policy.
