This guy has helped me out so much over the years with cracks/breaks at a reasonable price. Doesn’t matter if you walk in 5 minutes before close or 5 after open, he will always take the time and effort to help you with your problem(s). If I could give a rating higher than 5 stars, I would in a heartbeat.

I went to Gadget Bar looking for a special tool that hardware stores don’t carry. Brian carried the correct tool and hooked me up. I will likely go back should any of my electronics fail. Highly recommend

I've worked in sales for 8 1/2 years and have a very high personal standard for customer service I give. When I go somewhere as the customer, I likewise have high personal standards. Brian, met and exceeded my standards. I could tell just from my initial phone call that he was a genuine and knowledgeable person. After meeting him, he confirmed I was right. He's friendly, cares about helping his customers, knows his stuff, is ethical and has fair prices. If you need any cell phone work or repair, be sure to call Brian!

Brian provides quick and well-priced services and has gone above and beyond each time I've come in (even when it's a less than convenient time).He's extremely informative and communicative about the work he does, and I seem to learn something new when I stop by. While I hate to damage my phone, it makes it a pleasure to come in. I drop his name every time someone local has a phone issue and won't stop doing so any time soon!

Brian at GadgetBar provides white glove service for his customers. I had crashed my dji mavic mini drone and broke one of the arms on the drone. He replaced the broken arm and made it work like brand new! His rates are great too! I’ll be coming back for all my gadget needs.

I've gone to gadget bar twice. First to fix a cracked iphone screen and then for water damage to a samsung s9 (I'm a bit of a clutz.). Both times I felt the work was well done and fairly priced and I left happy! Its especially nice to find a place that does work on Samsung devices, I highly recommend it!

Brian is a solid guy!. Got me in right away to replace my iPhone screen while I waited.. Simple in and out, plus in the down time he has a super cool store dog to play with!.. 1st time experience there, great prices, friendly and very professional!. As I was waiting I noticed he carried himself in a very professional manor w/a customer that wasn’t to friendly and in my opinion this customer might have hit happy hour a little early.. I’m a new fan of the Gadget Bar for sure.. Might even drop off a bone for that store dog, my new buddy.. 👍🏻

Amazing experience, absolutely great customer service. I went in because my phone was damaged due to water. He gave me all of my options, even sent me to Apple to try and save me money. Turned out fixing it through him was my best option. He saved me hundreds of dollars and my phone works great.

Brian is super fast, detailed, precise, and a great deal. Recently, he replaced the batteries in my son's cell and my cell. Also, on New Year's Eve, he literally swapped out the screen on my daughter's laptop, tightened up the case and repaired all of the damage to the case, while I was standing there, just so my daughter could use it that night with her friends. Thanks Brian.

i brought a Lenovo Yoga laptop in for repair; it would no longer charge. As things turned out, it was a very difficult problem to diagnose. Gadget Bar's staff, specifically Brian, was very persistent in figuring out the cause of the problem. While never giving up, he also continuously kept me informed about progress, explained his process in detail and charged a very fair amount for the total time he spent. EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE ALL AROUND. THANKS!

Fantastic Experience with Drone Repair. I came in with my Inspire drone and Brian was very helpful from the start. I got off work late and arrived about 15 minutes before close. He still was there and willing to help me out with my problem and stayed after hours to help me with the repair. Overall great experience and for any tech that needs to be fixed I will be heading there!

    Main  If you want a straight price which is fair and good work that is done ahead of schedule then this is the place. Brian takes his work seriously and is very knowledgeable. This is the Best place around that I have found that does repairs and does NOT look to take advantage of you.

    Main  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.

    Main  Definitely will be a repeat customer! (Although knocking on wood that I don't drop another phone.) I highly recommend this shop over any others.

    I had called around requesting quotes on an iPhone X screen replacement. Brian was the ONLY person who took the time to thoroughly explain my options. Super helpful, knowledgeable, and the process was simple.

    Got a great deal and the phone looks brand new! Couldn't be happier with my experience here.

    Main  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.

    Main  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!

    Main  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!

    Main  I have been there three times before and on my fourth visit the manager was very unpleasant to work with. He didn't recognize me although I was a repeat customer. He took his time making his way to the front and seemed unwilling to help with my problem. Felt like he was only willing to meet me half way, and told me to go elsewhere for a cracked screen.

    Main  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!

    Main  iPhone 5s screen cracked. Took it in without an appointment. Told me it would be done in an hour, took only 45 minutes. Under promise, over deliver. Really good guys running the business as well.

    Side note: about a month after the screen replacement, the phone functions perfectly.

    Main  Could this place get any better? Um no. Because they are the best. This was our last ditch effort (our 3rd stop on a Saturday) - and I'm kicking myself as to why I didn't come here for our first stop. They fixed my destroyed 5C phone screen in 25 minutes. The new screen seems even better quality than the original screen.

    As an aside, after I came here - my mom told me that she had taken her Gen1 ipad cracked screen to them last year and had a great experience. She said they had hand cut the new glass screen as they do not have the Gen1 screens available anymore.

    Main  Came here last minute because my phone had shattered and yelp suggested this place. I honestly don't regret it at all! They fixed it under an hour and service was great. They made it as easy as dropping it off and picking it right up. I was surprised that it looked exactly the same-- the quality is amazing and can't even tell that I dropped it previously. Best part of all, I paid a fraction than I would have if I dealt with Apple's business of having to buy a brand new phone and have the hassle of transferring all of my files! I will definitely be coming here if I ever need service again. Thanks guys!
