                                        We had a fun time. Sometimes the machine wouldn't return the pins correctly so that are up our time. We did get to play billiards so that was ana added bonus.

                                        Very cramped space, very close to other lanes and no separation since they were just tables and not booths. The food was okay, but not great. The tables were very small to accommodate everyone comfortably. Not worth the money

                                        From NYC, part of our GoCity Pass good for 90mins of play and 2 slices of pizza. Great time for couples, families, and friends! Had a great time! Quick entry process and easy to start game! My husband and I had a blast before we went back home, perfect way to end our trip to Chi-town!

                                        Lovely place and friendly staff but the spacing for lanes and seating is minimal and not that comfortable. The only seating for bowlers are metal stools and a small table. Which is about 2 feet from the next lanes stools and tables.

                                        Reservation didn’t matter. We reversed 2tables for a total of 9 people. End up waiting 30 minutes and then got one table, so only 6 or our 9 were able to bowl(cost $198) 3 people in our party just sat squished between other tables. Terrible experience!! Employees don’t care. Save your money!

                                        The bowling alley itself was clean, but the tables are too close together. You weren’t able to sit down and get up at your liking because you would be blocked in by the table next to you.

                                        It was a fun evening, the lane kept breaking down though. Drinks and food were great though and staff was very nice!

                                        The food was subpar and the pricing was quite high to bowl ($119 for two hours for two people). However, it was understandable given the location. Unfortunately, the server got our order wrong and then because we closed out our tab never stopped over to check on us (we probably would’ve ordered more). Further, any time we asked the service staff for anything (water, if there were wet wipes or a sanitizing station,etc) they just kept on telling us to go to the bar I.e. it wasn’t their job. Considering there are servers here that was not the response I was expecting. All in all , I would say people should just bowl for one hour, if at all, and then get food elsewhere. There are better bowling alleys at much cheaper rates throughout the city with comparable offerings.

                                        Came here on a Saturday and really liked that we were able to make reservations and get right to our lane. The lanes had a little trouble but the staff was quick to fix it and gave us extra time.

                                        Nice place for a fun night out. Quality casual food, ambiance is lively without being extra. A little pricey but it is downtown. The pin setting machines did knock over a couple pins while setting them, but then that helped my score so I guess I can't complain. Went on Valentines Day -- was a fun date night alternative to the typical overpriced pre-fixe deal at most restaurants for the holiday

                                        So this place markets that they take their food service as seriously as the experiences and I beg to differ. We paid for the lane and shoe rental upon arrival. The food has to be ordered separately at the bar. There are no servers that take your orders. They only deliver food. I question if the tips are shared with them because they deserve it more than the bartender in relationship to food. They need servers. I ordered food and was not able to eat it all due to my lane time being over. So this place values their bowling lanes over the food. I didn’t have the opportunity to finish my meal even though we had to wait to receive the food and then can’t even eat it so they need work on providing an experience or only sell snacks.

                                        A little expensive and wish we weren't so close to other people bowling. It should have been every other bowling alley. There was party next to us on a 4 seat table when there was like 8 people. And they were still coming on our side of the table so we felt a little crowded..

                                        Overall great experience. Way overpriced though. Like, way overpriced to bowl.

                                        This was a very fun night and the staff was very accomodating. The food was great and everyone in my party from age 12 to 50 had a great time. We would come back again for sure.

                                        First time at 10pin. Front desk was polite but only communicated the minimal info. We didn’t know where to go for food, of someone came to table, etc. Was not able to get lane until 2 of our party showed. We would have ordered food and spent more money while we waited or bowled longer. Their loss on money I guess. Cost was pricey which we expect for Chicago. 25$ per person per lane. Lane kept clearing pins at wrong time which was annoying but we were bowling not to keep score anyways. Guy at bar was friendly and took our order and answered questions. He rocked. Food came quickly and server was mostly thorough. Brought napkins, but no plates? We visited once. Not likely to come back. Not thoroughly disappointed but expect more for the ungodly cost for good ol bowling.

                                        There was a large group of drunks next to us looking for a fight. Security took 30 minutes to get them out. We also asked for food service through the automated system but no one ever showed up. Terrible experience!

                                        We had a reservation, they checked us in and got us to our lane/table right away. The tables are very close to the people next to you so privacy is not an option but everyone was very friendly. The bar was busy and it took awhile to order drinks. Service was several minutes slower than other places I've experienced even on busy nights. We tried a few different cocktails and all of them were great. The lanes were clean, lots of options for bowling balls, no complaints about the actual bowling experience.

                                        I liked 10 pin as a great option for drinks or a fun social outing after a long week. Extremely pricy for bowling but it is located downtown so it’s expected. Find a parking garage near if you plan on really drinking. $15 for 8 wings was not what expected but if you have the money to spend it’s ok. Overall I would go again but definitely eat somewhere else afterwords.
