I recently had the opportunity to visit the gorgeous revamped Dave and Buster’s at “The Outlets in Orange”, previously called “The Block” in Orange, California. I was pleasantly pleased with my surroundings as there were three distinguished dining rooms, each with an individual theme and feel. One room was an upscale dining room with all white dining chairs (and I must add, they were quite comfy as well!) In the all white dining room was a classy bar. Another one of the dining rooms was a friendly classic Americana atmosphere. There was one room with pool tables where they also accommodate events and parties and do catering as well. The last room to be noted where you can also dine as well was the game area. The gaming area had games, a bar, and tables where you can socialize, eat, and drink. The room we had the pleasure of enjoying our fabulous meal was the room all decked out in white.
I must admit, I had not eaten at Dave & Buster’s in awhile. The last time my husband and I ventured into the Vegas Style establishment, we simply went in to have a few drinks and play some games. I was pleasantly surprised by the food at Dave & Buster’s this time and thoroughly enjoyed all of the dishes that we sampled at our table.:) Not only was the food top notch, we also tried a variety of fabulous new cocktails offered on the menu and got to take home our shot glasses and signature cocktail glasses that are yours free with the purchase of select shots and cocktails. Please see pictures below for the fabulous foods we had the opportunity to sample.
I would like to elaborate on a few of the offers that are available at Dave & Buster’s that can guarantee a pleasant evening of eating, drinking, and gaming…Dave & Buster’s truly allows you to be a kid again. The first offer is the most economical of the Eat & Play Combos. For $15.99, you can choose from eight entrees that include; Parmesan Crusted Chicken Caesar Salad, Chicken & Shrimp Rockefeller, Legendary Goldfingers, Black Jack BBQ Chicken, Fried Shrimp Platter, The Philly Cheesesteak, Dave’s Double Cheeseburger, or Build Your Own Soft Tacos (chicken). You can also double you power card to make your value $20 for only $23.99!
The second offer that Dave & Buster’s advertises is for $17.99. With this combo, you get to choose from three entrees, Cajun Shrimp Alfredo, Island Grilled Trifecta, or the Build Your Own Soft Tacos (Steak) and you get a power card worth $10 to play games all for only $17.99!! You can upgrade and pay $25.99 to get a $20 power card instead as well.
Another offer with food and games is the $19.99 option that includes a choice of one of these 5 entrees: Teriyaki, Sirloin Steak, Fire Grilled Salmon, Bistro Steak & Shrimp with Lobster Alfredo, Black Jack BBQ Chicken & Ribs, or Peppercorn Sirloin or Chargrilled Sirloin Steak and you get a $10 power card as well. To get a $20 power card, you can upgrade and pay $27.99.
A recent offer that is ending December 31, 2012 was to help donate to grant wishes for children with life threatening medical conditions through the Make-A-Wish-Foundation. To participate in the promo, you can purchase a wish star for $1 and have the option to receive $5 of free game play with the purchase of $10 game play or purchase an entrée and receive a free appetizer. This offer to purchase a wish star must be completed by December 31, 2012 and the game play or appetizer certificate must be used between January 1, 2013 & January 31, 2013.
Honestly, the prices are quite reasonable at Dave & Buster’s for a nice dinner and there is of course the option to play games and have some drinks. It is a one stop party shop where you can have good times with friends, family, and your loved ones. Even though it is more of an adult friendly atmosphere, parents can also bring their kids to join them for the fun when they are unable to get a babysitter.
To guarantee a fun night out on the town, visit your local Dave & Buster’s in your neighborhood.

The newly rebuild Dave and Busters at Opry Mills in Nashville is also a delight! FYI after 10 it’s 18 and up. If you are eating in the restaurant with children they don’t make you leave but they will come to the table to ensure you are aware. So for those singles it’s a great place for adults, just remember if you want to stay out late and go here hire a sitter.
That sounds awesome Jessie!! I would love to check it out next time I am out in Tennessee! It is a fun place:)
My wife and I went here on one of our first dates a long time ago! We morphed a picture of ourselves to see what our son would look like… its pretty close..
Awesome! Sounds like my hubby & I ..it was one of our first dates too and although we did the morphing child machine, we never had kids so we don’t know if it is what they would look like..lol. That is so cool to know the machine works:) Thanks for the comment:)
