Editorial reviews from the web (4) view all

If you responsibly--but still regrettably--use all your quarters on laundry, wait until the second Thursday of each month when a five dollar cover allows free play of all (ALL!) the games. Mash those buttons to your inner-child's heart's content.

A cheap date here means feeding your sig. other's pinball machine with quarters, and her stomach with cheap fare costing you $6 and under.

Can be fun

Average Rating
80

This place is pretty much a bar, so keep that in mind. The place is super packed on the weekend nights so keep that in mind. The parking on weekend nights is bad, so keep that in mind.
The games are fun if you like old school stand up video games. They have all the old classics.
They take coins...
