We went to the Dave & Buster’s in Deptford New Jersey with one of my older sons for fun, drinks, and games. It was the first time I’ve been in a Dave & Busters in decades, literally.
The food was basically upscale fast food, but the giant pretzel does stand out as being really good.
I went with my standard Manhattan, but they don’t have a great Bourbon selection, so they were made with Makers Mark, which is okay, its just doesn’t stand out to me as a great bourbon.
We were there for a while, and I think I drank four or five of these Manhattans, because the bartender came over and asked me if I enjoyed them, which of course I told him I did. The staff were really nice, and the bartender was a genuinely nice guy, so I really feel bad about giving Dave & Busters a score of 30/100.
To be clear, the staff were 100/100, but if you are a Whiskey drinker Dave & Busters shouldn’t be on your list of places to go to enjoy a sip or two. When it comes to Whiskey, Dave & Busters I’d only go back If I Had Limited Choices. Add the fact that it’s relatively expensive for fast food, and it just not my first choice.
