If you grew up in an arcade as a kid and you visit Seattle give Game Works a try. There is something for everyone here. Good place for families. Sure the prices have gone up a bit since the .25 games that I played, but the games are much more advanced. Parking is a bit tricky but there are a... More

The layout is confusing, there's different levels and entrances. We had drinks, the pretzel and quesadilla apps, and a salad and our food took a long time. It was busy but it was over 30 minutes after we ordered. The Santa Fe salad had deli ham cut up on it and the guacamole had an old left out too long... More

The Staff is pretty friendly and most of the games are working. They run good deals and the prices are fair. If you get hungry or thirsty while playing they have a place to order food and drinks. The kids will have lots of fun. Highly recommended.

I took my son for an arcade day, we have lots of fun in this big arcade room with different levels and great atmosphere they serve food as well so you don't have to leave to get something to eat. Advise, get a Groupon offer and take your kids. It's worth it.

Check out if groupon has any deals. Every once in a while we see deals for unlimited play for the entire day and an extra $10 game card for $20. So much fun. And for a great deal. Food at the restaurant is ok. Nothing special but I was told they were changing it up so we'll see for next... More

If you love to play old arcade games or the newest arcade games this is the place to go. They have a great selection but are usually very busy so prepare to wait your turn. For the computer gamer who doesn't have a great setup at home, they have a room for that too and you pay by the hour.... More

Yup, they have food and booze but the review is of the fun arcade part, which really is pretty darn good. We did the twenty bucks for 3 hours in the evening a couple times and it is great value. If you go on a Thursday evening I believe it's only ten bucks but I'm not sure how crowded. At... More

My husband I had fun here. It just wasn't the same as use to be. They took out the cool car game that was the best they had there. They are too concerned with bar and food to care about the games and the people and kids experience. We tried to give our card away that had our tickets on... More

We have been here a few times and it never disappoints. Yes the food here is more pub style, but what do you expect from an arcade?! There were some renovations going on, but all in all a good place to take your kids for an afternoon. The prices are fair. No different than any other arcade. They have a... More

We stopped by Game Works on a rainy evening in Seattle. After paying the high prices, we were treated to broken games (at least 25% of their games were out of order), lazy employees, and a smell best described as beer and urine. Find something else to do in Seattle.
