Kind of a labor of love for us who grew up on quarter vids. Kids are allowed, food is served, retro is current. Pretty good selection of old stand-up, console, bowling alley - type video games.

We shared a pizza, ciders and a variety of drinks and played some games. Like all arcades, it's noisy, but we had a good time socializing, eating and playing games. The pizza was tasty and the drinks were good.

This place is really cool. I'm sad to say I've been ignoring Tacoma for years. I thought Seattle was the place to be, but lately Seattle offers a dirty and unpleasant experience. Traffic, parking, crowded sidewalks and out of control homelessness and pan handling have...More
