Main Event Entertainment Inc., the 52-unit division of Dave & Buster’s Inc., has launched a new in-center restaurant brand called Family Kitchen, the company announced Tuesday.
Coppell, Texas-based Main Event, which Dave & Buster’s acquired in June, said Family Kitchen is offering more than 50 new menu items at its entertainment venues, which feature games, bowling and other amusements.

“Family Kitchen was developed with extra care, attention to detail and a focus on premium quality ingredients,” said Wiley Bates III, Main Event’s director of culinary innovation, in a statement.
“We’re excited for our guests to experience our new menu offerings, which have been seasoned with salt, pepper and love, and added playfulness that customers experience throughout the rest of the Main Event center,” Bates said.
Previously, Main Event offered food and beverage service but without separate branding.
Among the new menu items are:
Family Kitchen also offerings three combination offerings — Crowd Pleaser, The Classic and a Nacho Dinner — that serve four to five people. Prices on the “family feasts” range from $34.99 to $39.99.
“The Family Kitchen was largely inspired by Main Event’s brand promise to be a place for families to bond,” said Ashley Zickefoose, Main Event’s chief marketing officer.
“From shareable favorites with our ‘family feasts’ to offering something tasty and memorable for everyone in the family,” Zickefoose said, “our new restaurant further showcases that Main Event is not only the premiere place to have fun, but also a top-notch place to dine with families and friends.” 
Main Event, founded in 1998, has 52 centers in 17 states. Dave & Buster’s has 148 stores in 41 states, Puerto Rico and Canada.
Update Nov. 1, 2022: This story has been updated with menu pricing.
