Prices were fair, games were fun, and prizes were cool, loved it! I paid for a $20 card and it gave me a five dollar bonus most games for $.50 to a dollar.

Great rainy day activity, or if you just need a break from the beach. Nice variety of games, clean, not too crowded around lunch time, right bedside Fudpuckers, so first we fed the Alligators there, then went to the arcade. Kids enjoyed themselves.

Fat Daddy's has some great games and I loved the fact that your 'tickets' were loaded onto a card rather than having to carry actual tickets around (like Chuck E Cheese). Sometimes it took a few swipes to get the card reader to recognize the...More

The kids absolutely loved this arcade. I think it was priced very well they didn't try to price gouge you. Very nice for young children and young teenagers Would definitely go again

I didn't find it that appealing and the food was a little overpriced to be in an arcade, but the kids had fun there and that's all that mattered. We'd go again.

I didn't expect much from here due to the size but it turned out to be a good time for all. Teenage boys and younger daughter had a great time. I felt like my money went further here than other arcades I've been to. Three...More

The arcade is small in size. The games are modern and in very good condition. The staff is friendly and helpful. Overall it was a good experience.
