Great hospitality! Food was cooked well. Had a really good time with unlimited bowling. Only issue (wasn't a big distraction) was the pin sweeper for my group's lane would stick every other turn for a few seconds

Fun spot to bowl. They have done a lot to upgrade aspects of the place like the bowling areas, TVs, music, black lights, etc over time. Offers food which actually is pretty good and full bar. Has small video arcade as well. Can get a little pricey, especially on weekend, but they offer a lot of promotions and rates much better in non peak hours. Fun spot and good for kids and bday parties too.

I have never seen such a big bowling alley! It was really nice and the restrooms were clean. They have a food court and they fix your food when you order it so there's a wait but it's worth it. The food is fresh and hot when you get it and very good.

Great spot to hang out with friends or just have a laid back afternoon with family. The food is actually really good and the bar is impressively stocked. Definitely recommend

Pay attention to specials and do not come here for full price!!! Attractive and spacious interior. We enjoyed the food (given it is bowling alley food) and enjoyed the drinks as well. Decent computer systems for the lanes.

It was a great experience for a office outing. They did not have everything perfect as far a communicating things contractually and our lane kept getting stuck making it hard to play a second gane so we didn't. However we still had fun.

Pretty cool. Great ambiance. Nice staff. Food is just ok. The cheesy bread and wings are pretty good though. They serve alcohol here so that adds to the experience.

Love them always have great deals for the week so you can't bet the place the drinks (alcholic) are awesome as well. I also enjoy the food sometimes it be a miss but the drinks makes up for it. The staff is cool easy to come up to for help and advice om how to work the monitor try them out you'll enjoy it.

I enjoy going to this bowling alley. There are lots of young people and everyone always seems to be having a good time. The food is good and the bowling is economical for us college students, so it's a win-win situation for me even as a grad student. The atmosphere isn't too childish and it isn't too old and stiff , so it's a good balance especially on a weeknight. I always have a good time with friends. Because the location is so great, any of the errands that I need to run are right in the area. Go figure!

Just went here with a friend the other day and had a blast! One of my worst games ever but we had fun. I love that they have enough smaller balls and the holes are larger than the other places I've gone. The place was clean and professional. Didn't get to try their food but pics look delicious. Staff was very courteous.

I’ve been bowling here for years and they have made some improvements. It seems like they have started to make sure the lanes are properly oiled and they have upgraded the software, TVs, and the apparatus for adding your names. The machinery works pretty well flouring bowling and they are prompt getting things fixed if you have an issue. I will say that the prices have drastically increased, about $7 a game per person if there is no special. Also the food is about the same cost as eating in a restaurant. The food tends to be pretty good but I’m not sure it’s worth restaurant prices. None of that will stop me from going. Tuesday nights they have a $2.22 night, which makes everything really cheap.

Went here for a backup birthday plan on a rainy day and had a great time! It's quite noisy and VERY busy, so be prepared if you'd like a more laid back bowling experience. The only issue we had was some confusion and delays with staff setting up our game, but that eventually got worked out. The food was good, if overpriced. I would come here again.

Classic alley, classic (adequate) food, under better management, service improving significantly. Recent upgrade to lane scoring system is nice. Still struggling some with ball return maintenance. A real turnaround in just a year!

We had a joint birthday party here and it was a big hit. The service and food were enjoyed by all. I’ll definitely bring the kids back. We had a slight issue with party pricing and getting some dollars refunded AND I got Rick rolled when we walked in the door otherwise it would be 5 stars all the way.

This was a great place for a fun outing. They played good music and the atmosphere was really great. I had a fun time bowling with my friends this past weekend. They have food and drinks for sale that goes beyond what you would traditionally expect from a bowling alley. Be prepared to wait for the food and drinks though. I think we went at a non-busy time with a big group so we ended up waiting a long time for food and even longer for drinks. It was fine though because you are bowling!

One of the best bowling alleys I’ve been to. 32 lanes available so we only waited about 5 minutes for one to open up. The drinks were priced pretty reasonably for the size you got. Didn’t get a chance to try the food but the lanes that had it around us looked good. Plenty of comfy seating and the scoring system didn’t have any issues. Definitely will come back for some of the specials they have each night.

It's been a lot of years since I've been here & avoided it for the atmosphere. But was pleasantly surprised on a family bowl get together today. Great interior improvements here. Will be back!
