Absolutely love this place a lot of cool history in there as well as many .25 cent coin operated games. The staff is very friendly and able to help with any problems you may have with the machines , super fun for all ages! Many old arcade games! If you see a prize you want you're able to take your ticket slips home and save them up till you have enough to get what it is you want. They have a snack bar as well , over all a great experience

Wow! What an amazing place. Such a unique and exciting place to visit. Such great exhibits and rare finds. Plus it is also a fun game room arcade with a good assortment of games (including pinball) from today and from back in the day as well that people of all ages can enjoy. The owner is very friendly and the place is well maintained. There is so much to take in here you can always come back and discover something new that you missed seeing the last time you were here. I highly recommend this place!

MMMM has been one of my favorite places to visit since I was a child. When Marvin passed last year, I was worried the family wouldn't continue the tradition, but we visited this past Saturday and things were booming. They really could use a bigger building, but it'd be such a shame to see them move from the location they've been for so long. I love that new games appear all the time but they also don't get rid of the old favorites. Definitely a place for every generation.

This place is so much fun! There is a ton of stuff to look at and tons of games to play. Some of the machines date back to the 1900s. The staff was very welcoming and the popcorn was delicious. We will be going again.

Very popular local bar and grill. Very good fish fry. Reasonable prices. Bar area gets very crowded on weekend nights. This is my favorite Lancaster restaurant.
