Where do I even start.... Luckily, bowling is always something that is as fun as you make it out to be. My girlfriend another and I all did have a blast while ACTUALLY bowling. We paid for the unlimited frames, which was actually modestly priced, and couldn't have had more fun, however, the rest of the experience is why I can't see myself going back. First off, the one and ONLY thing they offered as far as food was pizza. For $13 we ended up with a failed pizza hut greasy personal sized over-priced pizza which coincidentally caused my girlfriend to spend over half our time there in the bathroom. Not even pretzels or popcorn were offered from either of the said dirty machines displayed in the "dining room" that look like they haven't been used in years. Then, the drinks. If you aren't there to basically get drunk, your pretty much left with a vary small handful of drinks which thankfully they had free water to sip on. The grumpy old guy I was forced to ask all my questions (due to the other girl at the bar seemed to not have a clue as to what was going on or even able to answer any of my questions) seemed like he was absolutely miserable and didn't exactly treat the rest of the staff with any respect whatsoever and god forbid you had ANY issue big or small this guy made it seem like I was asking him to donate his kidney because of how big of a deal he made it seem whenever I had to go to him. Needless to say, if I ever want to go bowling again, it surely will NOT be here.

Tried to play on ten pin lane. Balls didn't return. Attendant didn't care. He didn't even come back to me. I had to go to him again just to have him tell me it couldn't be fixed. Would he have let us wait all night before he came back. Very poor customer service. Tried candel pin lane. Pins would reset before your third ball. There weren't enough balls to boot. Although I thought the attendant had a lot. Again, attendant didn't care, to busy talking with friends. Only answer was no mechanic on duty. It was a Saturday night. Really. When I demanded our money back his response was like no big deal. He made no effort to appease us. To top it off, he gave us back $2,50 more than we paid. A real keeper he was. To top it off you pay hourly now. No more per lane. Never going back. Unbelievable.

One of my favorite stops. This bowling alley, although a little on the drier side for their ten pin lanes, is a guaranteed good time if you're looking for family fun. They have ten candlepin and ten "ten pin" lanes, as well as a full arcade and ticket redemption center. They have added a full bar with a variety of specials and drinks for those looking to have a good time. This place has always treated me well and their offers can't be beat (i.e. their monthly bowling packages). I look forward to going there again and again.
