iPad & Tablet Repair
My Galaxy S21 Ultra phone screen broke. Fortunately this place is nearby, but now knowing how diligent and attentive this guy is, he's getting all my future business. Almost too much information, almost OCD in our conversations, but he's easy going yet dedicated. Love it.
Top notch, very fair price. Why bother going anywhere else? Hope he's around for many more years.
If you ever need to repair your phone or other electronic device, you absolutely should go to GadgetBar! Brian is super knowledgeable and goes above and beyond. I had a shattered screen on my cell phone, and while other repair shops said it was unfixable, Brian repaired the screen. Not only that, but he stayed late to ensure the phone was fixed that night! I highly recommend GadgetBar, you will not be disappointed!
Just call me butterfingers. I drop my phone all the time. I have a solid case and screen protector. Well, oops I did it again and cracked both the screen and screen protector enough that it warranted replacing. The owner of the company was thorough and very professional. He communicated very well with me and I had my phone back in no time! On his recommendations I purchased a new screen protector and he installed it straight away. Highly recommend!!
Great Customer Service
Straight to the point and quick service

Awesome experience start to finish. For people who care about supporting local business, this is the kind of place that should be actively supported - super nice and helpful guy with an awesome dog. This will no doubt be my go to place for iPhone/iPad repair from now on.
We replaced two screens (iPad Air 2 and Pro) at Gadget Bar, after two months the home buttons on both iPads stopped working for some reason, probably part issues. Brian (Gadget Bar owner) fixed the issue at no additional cost, and showed he cares about his reputation and clients. I hope the issues will not arise again. We are satisfied with the way he dealt with us.
I've used these guys several times, for computers, tablets and mobile phones. For quality work (which you always need), speed (when you need it), talking you through your options, and HONESTY (depressingly unusual), they're simply tops in their category. Five stars, thumbs way up, whatever you want to say.
Brian at the Gadget Bar is awesome. We have a built-in fireplace in our sunroom with a remote control that has an LCD screen and a few buttons. The buttons all stopped working a while back and we couldn't find a new remote anywhere. So, while it was probably an unusual request, we brought it to Brian and he couldn't have been any nicer or more enthusiastic about helping us fix it. He took it apart and confirmed that all the buttons on the circuit board were worn out. He found the exact button replacements online from a random Chinese supplier, ordered them for us, and soldered them onto the circuit board. The remote works like new again. Parts and labor were very reasonable - certainly less than buying a new remote. I would encourage you to look around your house for electronics that aren't working and bring them to The Gadget Bar to let Brian tinker with them!
While trying to swap out the hard drive on my daughter's computer I broke a component off of the power button board. I could not find a replacement and I was thinking it will be crazy if I have to buy a new laptop over this. I brought it into Brian and he soldered the component back onto the board. It was not an easy task, it was a complicated job because the circuit was on its side and it had three contact points. He not only fixed power button board, but also fixed one of the keys on the keyboard, and tightened up the touchpad. All for a VERY good price. I highly recommend the Gadget Bar!
I dropped off an iPad 4 that had the screen cracked, and was given amazing service with a few hours turnaround time. Excellent place to have your electronics repaired quickly, and at a very fair price.
Brian treated me like a customer that he has had for years. He sent me to another shop knowing they would be able to serve me better and he wanted me taken care of. Cannot recommend this place enough.
I highly recommend Gadget Bar! Brian is professional, courteous and knowledgeable. First visit, he replaced my daughters cracked screen same day at a great price! Recently came back when we needed to get data retrieved on a broken phone. He went above and beyond to help and my daughter was happy she got what she needed!
This is a terrific business. The owner operated business opened three years ago and offers great service and fair pricing in a convenient location. I trust GadgetBar for my phone, tablet and PC repair needs.
My son broke off a headphone plug inside the jack of his iPad. Apple would have charged more than the IPad 4 is worth. GadgetBar got it done in under five minutes at a reasonable price while we waited in their comfortable waiting area; no "Genius Bar" Appointment. They even told us how long it would take if the iPad had to be opened up.
Give them a try; I would highly recommend them.
Incredibly grateful for Brian and the staff at Gadget Bar! I dropped my phone at a convention on Saturday and shattered the screen/digitizer/lcd. Brought it in on Monday night and the phone was finished on Tuesday afternoon. I used the coupon on the Yelp page and I thought the price was very reasonable for completely new parts on a phone. No bulls***, just straight up honesty and quality service. I got a Otter Box so I don't mess up my phone again. Again, very grateful, they saved the day!
Wow--these guys saved the day for me;I accidentally dropped and cracked the screen of my corporate Blackberry z10. Brought it to GadgetBar last Friday afternoon; they fixed it/had it ready for me to pick up the following Tuesday! If I had not had GadgetBar fix my work Blackberry, my company would've stuck me with some random downgraded phone; Instead, sweet baby Jesus sent me a GadgetBar angel, and now I'm back in business with my fixed up Blackberry! Thank you, sweet baby Jesus and GadgetBar! Hollah!
Wow, what a surprisingly good experience!
No one ever enjoys getting something fixed. It's an annoying, unexpected expense and the process is usually a huge nightmare - calling in warranties, dealing with automated phone systems, getting the general sense that no one cares whether or not you get your computer back in time for that big presentation or not.
That was not the case at Gadget Bar! I dropped off my obnoxiously large, self-built computer for them to take a look at. I was having issues with my graphics cards or something and wanted an outside opinion on how to address the issue. I left the computer and expected a response in a day or two.
I heard nothing for a whole week. My red flags went way up! Was the whole computer and phone repair business and elaborate hoax to run away with my multi-thousand dollar computer system?!? I called ready to get my business voice on, but was reassured that they were working on it and dealing with custom systems takes time.
The next day I got a phonecall from the technician, Tyler, assuring me there was significant progress and my computer was just more messed up then either of us had anticipated. Over the next few days he gave me daily updates and asked for my approval before making potentially expensive mods to my case and hardware. The process was very painful, and as someone who knows a good deal about computers he absolutely was not taking advantage of me.
The whole process took about a week and a half. I picked up the computer and the total repair costs were MUCH lower than I expected, even when dealing with such custom hardware! I was impressed with the work and the professionalism! The only reason I am giving 4 stars instead of 5 was for the week with no contact, but they quickly changed their tune once they knew it was an issue for me!
Overall I had a very pleasant repair process with the homies at the bar, and will be bringing my stuff back if I'm ever unfortunate enough to have another computer problem I can't fix on my own!
