The folks at Dave & Buster's contacted me recently about coming out to their grand re-opening in Springdale. They've done a big remodel on the front bar area and also added quite a few menu items.
Island Grilled Trifecta
Skewers of honey-teriyaki-glazed sirloin steak, seasoned chicken breast and tender shrimp, grilled and served on a bed of spicy rice medley. Served with pineapple pico de gallo, teriyaki BBQ sauce, and mango citrus sauce for dipping.
Since we got two apps - we split a main entree. While this isn't "new" it is one of their "faves" so we figured it was worth a try. This was just ok as well - the chicken and shrimp were really good - the steak was bland. The rice was really bland. The sauces were all fine but I didn't really love any of them - and I'm typically a sauce girl.
But to be honest - the food is only half the deal and Dave & Busters - it's really about the GAMES!!!!
They have a TON of new games - which are IMPOSSIBLE to take photos of with a phone. This is a huge touch screen game that looked really fun - but by the time we got back to it - our game card was empty. :-(
If you're not familiar with D&B - you eat dinner and play games. You buy a game card with points on it and each game has a point value. We spent $25 ($23 for points and $2 for card activation which is ridiculous to me!!!!!). We played for probably an hour with that money - so combined with dinner and a few beers - it was a $70 night out. (FULL DISCLOSURE: D&B provided me $50 in gift certificates.)
There were a ton of other games as well - trivia, claw and video games a plenty. We skipped around and tried a bunch of games once. Most of them Larry won...
All in all - the games are definitely fun - and we came away with enough tickets for a drinking glass for the house. We almost had enough for a frisbee for dog...grrr...
Why Should You Go? Well - the food is just okay - it's typical standard bar food. The games are kind of expensive but fun. There are also a TON of pool tables and games of every kind - so it is fun and there's a good variety. It's not a cheap night out - so keep that in mind - but it is fun.
I do have one thing to comment on - if you don't bring a game card - they charge you a $2 activation fee. Really - $2 for a swipe on a piece of plastic that probably costs half a penny? We also had a bit of an issue with the counter girl and our gift certificates - but I have to say - the manager cleared it up immediately and was very courteous - so that was strongly appreciated!
And now you get the chance to try it for yourself! Dave & Buster's also gave me another $50 to give away to one of you! You'll have a week to enter and there are a lot of ways to do it. Enjoy!
