Our family was invited to check out the new Dave & Buster’s restaurant/entertainment complex located in Florence, KY. Upon arrival, one of my first observations was the open concept in a 30,000 sq. ft building.
The Florence location is the 86th location for Dave & Buster’s which was founded in 1982 and is headquartered in Dallas, TX.
The 360 degree sports bar is located close to the entrance when you walk in. There are 37 TVs from 50in to 190in that make a sports lovers dreams come true.
There is large room designated for private parties and large groups for birthdays, work parties, team building, etc. The large room can also be separated into two rooms depending on the number of guests. The sports lounge can also be rented out.
We decided to eat first because we knew that our kids would not want to stop playing games once they started.
We ate in the dining area that features giant images from Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
For an appetizer, we tried the Crispy Steak ’N’ Cheese Tater Cakes (Shredded potato cakes served crispy brown and loaded with thinly sliced steak and melted cheese.
Topped with sautéed onions, fresh tomatoes and green onions, and served with horseradish sour cream.)
My kids were really excited about trying the Glow Kones. There are lots of creative cocktails including Glow Kones for adults too.
I ordered the Bang Bang Chicken with spicy thai peanut noodles. I was already craving pad thai which confirmed my menu selection. (Tender crispy boneless chicken tossed in spicy Bang Bang sauce served on a bed of noodles tossed with Asian vegetables and spicy peanut sauce.)
There is Sriracha sauce available on request if you are like me and think that the hotter the better.
My husband ordered the BUFFALO WING Burger* (A half-pound burger seared and seasoned, topped with crispy chicken tenders tossed in our buffalo wing sauce, bleu cheese, frazzled onion strings and celery, served on a toasted brioche bun with crispy seasoned tots.)
My older son ordered the Caveman Combo (Individual “St. Louis-style” pork ribs tossed in a chili honey soy glaze served with four mini-cheeseburgers on Hawaiian rolls and seasoned french fries.)
My younger son ordered the Kid’s Pretzel dogs. (Meaty all-beef franks wrapped in sweet pretzel dough, baked fresh and served with seasoned french fries)
I was really impressed with the unique take on traditional American food.
Even though we boxed up a large portion of our dinner, we still rallied and tried the dessert. You have to have priorities right?
For dessert we tired the BrookiE sundae tower. (‘Brookie,’ a fun mix of two favorites – a giant chocolate brownie & chocolate chip cookie made with ghirardelli® chocolate chips, baked into one warm & gooey delicious package – topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate & caramel sauces.)
Confession-we ate all of it even though we were really full. It was really good!
There are over 150 of the latest & greatest games including Ghostbusters, Star Wars Battle Pod and Zombie Snatcher. Dave & Buster’s has several games that are exclusive to them.

As a family, we had a blast playing quad air hockey and racing each other on Super Mario Kart.

My kids could have stayed there all night if we would have let them…..the parents were having fun too.
