Dave and Buster’s

It may have a restaurant and sports bar, but the defining feature of Dave & Busters for children is its lavish midway. Imagine Chuck E Cheese, only upscale, with a darker color scheme and decent looking drinks. I now apologize for asking you to imagine Chuck E Cheese.

Pros

  • A great selection of games to play, all looking clean and modern.
  • Superior ticket-to-novelty exchange process; a cheerful little store in place of the usual glass cabinet.
  • Very good customer service (at least in our experience).
  • They looked to have a decent bar, if that takes the edge off for you.

Cons

  • The games end up being pretty expensive; if you’re used to the relative economy of the Avalon’s nickel arcade, for example, you’ll be in for a shock.
  • The restaurant, if you’re so inclined, is OK, but generic Applebee’s type fare and overpriced for what it is.

in the area

It’s right there at Clackamas Town Center if you have some shopping to pick up. Eagle Landing miniature golf and Mt Talbert Nature Park are nearby.

The Avalon’s nickel arcade offers older, less glitzy arcade games at a lower price point. Oaks Park also offers old school midway games amid other attractions.
