I held my son's 16th bday party at Dave and Busters in Milpitas. I did the "Celebrations Buffet" package at $24.99/person for 20 people, and felt it was way below standard for the money invested. We were not given an option as to the kind of food we wanted, we were simply given four items, which included some type of macaroni noodles with red sauce, pizza bites wtih pesto in the center (what teenager that you know of eats pizza with pesto sauce???), stale chicken bites with nacho cheese looking sauce that they said was honey mustard and last but certainly not least burger sliders which included meat (or what they called was meat) that was not cooked all the way.
When I brought my concerns regarding the food to the manager's attention, she stated "well, that's the food that you get with that package"... Seeing that this was the most expensive package that they offered, I would have expected much better food for the money. Would I dare want to see what kind of food was offered on the $17.99/person package? The manager was very unfriendly and thought that me telling her how awful the food was meant that we wanted to be offered money off our bill, was insulting. That was not our intentions at all. We were simply not happy with the food that was provided with the package and just wanted to make them aware. To spend almost $700 total for 20 people to only receive stale food and a $15 power card, per guest, was NOT WORTH IT AT ALL.
On a side note, our servers were Excellent and did sympathize with our frustrations with the food that we were given. In my opinion, they acted more like managers and more professional than the actual manager. The only part of the bill that I really didn't mind spending, was the gratuity that went, to my knowledge, directly to the servers.. Thank you ladies.
Had I known what I know now, I would have simply just ordered straight from the menu for my son's guests and bought Power Cards, myself. We would have all gotten the food that we wanted.

I like coming here with friends. I wouldn't recommend it based on the food alone (you can find better burgers and drinks elsewhere), and the wait always takes forever! But, the atmosphere is fun and the games are entertaining. It's a good hangout place.

I took my daughter here for the first time. As I approached the front desk, the girl working the counter acted like she rather be doing something else but working. No smile, no "Welcome to Dave and Buster's"...nothing. I ordered food at the bar and even tipped the bartender only to get my food 45 minutes later. The bartender did comp me a $15 power card. When it was time to cash in the tickets at the Winner's Circle, the girl working the counter had a pulse like a dead fish.

Perhaps this is the place if you just want to play games and wait for food. However, those who know how to run a successful business recognize that great customer service comes first. I was considering having a birthday party and a company party at this place - forget it.

Dave & Busters is good if you like arcade games. It's supposed to be for families, but I haven't seen many families there, mainly young adults. The food is so-so, typical bar food in my mind (fried zucchini, fried potatoes, fried onion rings, fried cheese, etc.... ). It is nice and roomy and doesn't get super crowded.

PROS: nice and roomy, lots of games
CONS: so-so food

We have had a few company events here and everyone seems to have fun. Since it's a company function we get special treatment and service. All the food we had was very good and we will continue to book D&B.

Fun don't get me wrong, kids had a blast. But, so did my wallet. You can easily go thru $50 or higher on games if you don't watch it.

Food is very good. Was really surprised the food was so good.

Great for company events as well.

Take your spouse out for a date night and surprise them with Dave and Busters.

This is a great place for adults (it's 21 and over only, so no kids). They have tons of games you can play The arcade is great, although it's a lot more expensive than your typical kiddie arcade; I guess that's expected though, giving this place's location. Dave and Busters is located in the Great Mall, right next to the movie theater.

They also have a bar. making it a great place to go with a bunch of friends and have some fun.

This place is great for the family or a crowd of friends. There's a bar for the adults and an arcade for some fun. The food here is delicious and I recommend the prime ribs. Sometimes they have shows and play performances. This is like an "arcade nightclub" it's very hip and full of life. If you want a thrill, this is the place to be at. It's a Chuck-E Cheese for adults. The atmosphere is very lively and great as well.

PROS: Atmosphere is nice, Arcade, Food
CONS: Sometimes it's too over crowded.

If you need a break from work, or from stress, though the two are probably the same, you should go check out Dave and Busters. It's a great place to unwind. And it's fun for the whole family.

There are tons of arcade games here. Not just the newest ones, but classics like Daytona USA. Billiards, watergun games, basketball games, and flight simulators are here. There is also games where you can win tokens, coupons, and prizes. IF you play the games that give you coupons, you can trade them in for items at the prize stores.

There is also a bar and a dining are at this place. Get the ribs, they are pretty good. Meet up with your friends for drinks or just go there to watch a game on tv. It's up to you.

PROS: Go here, if you haven't been here before.
CONS:
