Great place to go bowling for sure but it could use a revamp. It's been there forever and is the only bowling alley that I know of in Chapel Hill. If you like knocking pins over with bowling balls and dislike long car rides to other bowling alleys, then this is most certainly the place for you.

It was fun, could use a little up to date restoration though.

Bowling and arcade games. Pretty standard bar type food. The staff were very helpful with bumpers, stuck balls, and cleaning up spills. The arcade games are pretty expensive and the ticket redeemers prizes are on the low side.

Good place for bowling. They could use some new balls and new shoes. My fingers are large and their largest/heaviest balls dont have holes large enough. Their fries and nachos were good. Lemonade too. Kids like their arcade games.

Place is chill came out with my daughter on out N.C. trip and was the only bowling alley a short distance from hotel. Location - Plaza here has few restaurants, seems a bit deserted and slow. Venue - Normal size Bowling alley dated like many unless they become the bigger chains. Really dead in here, so feels like you got the place to yourself. Service - Employees here and nice and helpful, but then again it was onky like 6 people here when I came. Arcade - Very dated, old games, selection of games isnt great, game dont pay out many tickets, and prices are weak. Food - Didnt have any so cant say much about that. Parking - The outside lot has plenty of parking. Probably wouldn't come back as I would want something more hip, but its not a bad place and if I was down the st might consider it again.

It was fine. The shoes we rented were super old. The equipment at the lanes is also old. The bumpers for the kids weren't retractable for the adults. But the staff was pleasant and the location is convenient.

I was impressed how clean this bowling alley was. Went with a group of people mid-day and we pretty much had the place to ourselves.
