It's nice to escape the shopping for a minute, and hit a few quick games. It's a nice place to bring the out-of-town visitors - really something for everyone.

The food is surprisingly good, but it's not the most impressive date place. Go here with a group and you'll have a blast!

Great place to have birthday parties and entertain your friends. The food is not very good and it is overpriced but I love the appetizers and drinks. Great place for both adults and children. Bring lots of cash to play the games.

From my experience the service was awful. It took 5 mins just to be greeted by someone. Even worse I had about 5 different servers pass me. Anyways when I finally did get greeted and got my drink I found a fruit fly in it. They took forever to bring me a replacement drink. I didn't even have a manager come by to smooth things over. The food was way below my expectations and trust me my expectations were quite low considering the kind of food they have. Now I consider this place a rip off version of boomers only here all the games are broken and it is way more overpriced! They have the worst system of getting a game attendant you flip on this light switch and just hope one of them notices and comes over to help you. Well if anyone has ever been in a Dave and busters they could imagine how hard it must be for these poor attendants to notice something like this. The game room is way too big to have someone notice a game is broken by a little red light bulb. Plus they have a tricky way of getting you to spend a lot more money on the games without noticing. See most places you put quarters or change in but, at Dave and Busters they charge you 5 dollars just for an empty card then you must put money on the card. Now here is where they really trick you since you are playing with a card and not inserting money each time you play a game you don't realize how much you are really spending. The average game there is about 2 dollars some are more and only the really crappy games are less. If I had to sum this restaurant up I would say that Dave and Busters in Irvine is overpriced, unsanitary, has awful service, and is definitely not worth your time or money.

Pros: The atmosphere is nice the place is beautifully decorated but looks is about all it has.

Cons: Crowded, bad service, terrible food and drinks, overpriced, and broken games.

the food was great, but I used my credit card to put a 150 deposit on the meal for 11 people ( no alcohol). I checked my credit card and I had 3 charges from them on the same night! My bill of 140.00, they did not take off the 150.00 deposit and another charge of 14.00. i have to apologize! i found out that the bill was 290.00. i didn't get the itemized bill until i called them to find out what was happening.

Dave and Buster's is the adult version of Chuck E. Cheese... WE can embrace our inner child by playing Resident Evil or shooting hoops to score tickets for a grand prize! My grand prize, last time I went, was this adorable mini water filter thingy- it took me many rounds of games to get there. Adults and kids can play together until 10pm, when people have to start showing their ID's. Though I never really ate a meal there, I take full advantage of their $5 cocktails during happy hour.

Why would you go anywhere else then Dave and Busters to have fun like playing skee ball or pacman. Dave and Busters is geared towards adults, with two large bars, one mini bar serving only beer and lots of waiters and waitress ready to serve you a drink at a moments notice. The over friendly staff at each of the bars is very helpfull in picking a drink if your not sure what to get or what your in the mood for. And of course the food, the food is awesome, i have never had a bad experience with the food, and have never gotten sick from it. This is the place to be on a friday or saturday night.

I wasn't really into arcade games until I was introduced to Dave & Busters. I loved it so much I ended up having my 21st Bday here. Restaurant serves good dishes. Their chicken salad is my favorite. If you don't want to wait for the restaurant, there's a bar smacked in the middle of the arcade. They serve pretty good appetizers.

If you are having a party, you can reserve an area with pool tables. I'm yet to convince my company to throw a X'mas party there :(

There are so many game selections that you can end up spending tons of money.

I don't think this is a good place for kids since it's technically a bar. But I do see parents taking their kids there.

This place is so much fun! The food is great, and the bar is well staffed. That means, you dont have to wait forever to get a drink! There are video games, pool tables, and all kinds of stuff to keep you entertained. It is a great place for company parties, or any parties for that matter. kids can go too, as long as they are accompanied by an adult. This is very helpful to us, since we have two young girls, and when our friends want to do something we cant always get a baby-sitter at the drop of a hat!

With the Irvine Spectrum chasing all the nightclubs out, this is a great destination after dinner for a few drinks and games. Really fun in a group, the machines are set up for competitive games.

This is a great place to go for fun times with friends, family, on a date, or a party. They have pretty decent food, happy hour, and tons of games to play. It's set up like an arcade with everything from shooting games, tossing games, racing, fighting, pin ball, air hockey, and much much more.

Dave and Busters is a fun place to go for food and entertainment. They have a nice big bar, and really delicious food. The games are totally fun, too... if you like that sort of thing (I do). I usually end up spending a lot of cash when I go, which is the only down side.

Be prepared to be carded after 10, because it's strictly 21+ after that (unless kids are accomplanied by parents) This place is hip! They've got GREAT food, TONS of video games to play (you play for tickets and trade those in for prizes, kind of like how chuck E cheese goes but without all the kids everywhere) a bar, pool tables, and a dining area. There is about one large bar, and another in the back where the games are. Their restrooms are spik and span clean as well! It can be pretty pricey here (meal ranges from $9.00 +), but it's a great place to have dinner with a bunch of friends. The dining area could be a romantic spot for a dinner of 2 as well. Even though this place could be loud, I think that it provides more than the usual restaurant in just 1 spot!
