On February 6, 2006, Dave & Buster’s sent the following letter to its stockholders who had not yet returned proxies in regard to the upcoming special meeting of the stockholders to be held on February 28, 2006:
2481 Manana Drive
Dallas, Texas 75220
Dear Fellow Stockholder:
You have previously received proxy material in connection with the upcoming special meeting of stockholders for Dave & Buster’s, Inc. to be held on February 28, 2006.
As described in the proxy statement, on December 8, 2005, Dave & Buster’s, Inc. (“Dave & Buster’s”) entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with affiliates of Wellspring Capital Management, LLC (“Wellspring”), pursuant to which Wellspring and its affiliates will acquire all of Dave & Buster’s outstanding common stock for $18.05 per share, by the merger of a Wellspring subsidiary with and into Dave & Buster’s. To complete the merger, at least two-thirds of the outstanding D&B common stock must vote in favor of the transaction. You will also consider and vote upon a proposal to adjourn the special meeting, if necessary or appropriate, to solicit additional proxies for the approval of the merger agreement. Your Board of Directors has carefully considered each of the proposals and unanimously recommends that shareholders vote FOR each of the proposals.
According to our latest records, your voting instructions for this meeting have not yet been received. Regardless of the number of shares you may own, it is important they be represented at the meeting. If you do not vote, the effect will be a vote against the merger transaction. If we do not receive the approval of at least two-thirds of the shares entitled to vote, the currently proposed merger transaction will not be completed, and our stockholders will



not receive the $18.05 per share consideration payable under the current version of the merger agreement. We urge you to please return your proxy card in the enclosed Business Return Envelope, or vote by following the instructions for phone or internet voting that appear on the enclosed proxy card.
Thank you for your support. Your prompt voting may save Dave & Buster’s the necessity and expense of further solicitations.
