It was OK. – Went specifically for the 1/2 Price food. Menu was good, and got a couple of appetizers (mini corn dogs and hamburger nachos). The food was good and more gourmet than normal bar food but extremely greasy.
The worst part was the flat soda. I sent a Diet Coke back twice because it was flat, and the waitress didn't seem very concerned. i finally just asked for a water. I clearly didn't drink the Diet Coke, but it still showed up on the bill.
I didn't bother contesting it because the waitress would have just been more annoyed. Good value on 1/2 price Monday, but I don't know that I would go back even for that after the service.
Seemed like a cool place otherwise.
Horrible service – My friend and I went to barcadia for sunday brunch. We have been there several times and have always liked it however this time we had to wait 15 min to be spoken to. We ended up having to flag down a waitress who talked to everyone but us. Our food was cold and when we sent it back it came back wrong. Don't go for brunch!!!
Great Hangout – Barcadia has quickly become our favorite neighborhood hangout. It's a cool atmosphere with sweet waitresses and delicious, if not creative, bar food. My friends and I love the Sunday Funday brunch, although the food selection at that time is somewhat lacking...but hey, it's brunch. They recently got Super Mario, which makes me incredibly happy.
We Love BARCADIA!
Awesome Sunday Brunch, Lively Scene, Fun Games – What an absolute blast I had with a group of friends at Barcadia a couple of Sundays ago! I've been back several times since then in the evenings for Happy Hour. I love playing the old school video games - total throw back & the music playing definitely has all in my group bringing up old funny memories. Their Sunday Brunch is quite good! Servers & bartenders are all very friendly. Casual & unpretentious atmosphere, great prices, & the video games - this concept is a winner. I highly recommend Barcadia any night of the week, & especially for their Sunday Fun Day & the Sunday Brunch.
It was okay – I went to Barcadia on a Saturday nite with a large group of people. My expectations were not met, but they may have been too high. For some reason when I was told about this place ("you can drink and play old arcade games!"), I was expecting more than 7 games to choose from. I was a disappointed. Don't get me wrong, they had a couple of games that I enjoyed playing but there were so few....especially for the amount of people that were there....waiting....just for that one chance that someone will loose and you can sneek you way infront of the machine before anyone else has a chance. Not so much fun. They did have a good selection of liquors and beers, I'd probably go back if others wanted to go, but it's not my first choice. It's a great concept (Bar Code-NYC anyone?!), but in my opinion they missed it.
hey there....wanted to thank you for coming and sorry you were disappointed...we actually have 17 games, not 7....at any rate, sorry you werent pleased. most of the games are 20+ years old and hard to maintain and find in good condition. we have recently rotated out a few and added some new ones. hope you'll give us another try!
Coolest New Place Dallas has had in a LONG time! – Dude! This place is a blast! Chuck E Cheese is more expensive and doesn't have booze. Skee Ball is only a quarter!!!! It is a chill anti-snob place and the games are a blast. Good music, nice patio. It has become one of my regular going out stops.
fun, chill bar with a diverse crowd – subject says it all, barcadia is just chill, good times with good friends. the retro games are a nice throw back and fun for people who want an alternative to throwing back drinks at a bar (not me.. but i still enjoy donkey kong!) and they're only .25 cents each to play, not like some places that charge $2 for a game. service is friendly for the most part although some of the bartenders can be a bit rude. overall i really like barcadia and i think it's a fun, different kind of bar that i'll definitely visit again! plus the 80's music is awesome.
Concept joint combines gaming and drinking on Henderson Avenue. – In Short
With over 3000 square feet, Barcadia is looking to double the pleasure by merging Frogger with frothy cold brew. The enormous space with an 80's rock-n-roll lounge feel has at least a dozen old-school video games. A wide array of beer and liquor will be available for consumption as you hammer away at the "fire" button on the Galaga machine. Management has also kept the prices old-school with each game costing only a quarter.
