Overpriced seeing as you have to pay by the hour and can not extend by the game. Definitely a rip off. Also employees offer zero customer service skills except for bartender and gentleman who brings out the food. However, the employees at the desk for you to check in doesn’t welcome or greet you, actually seem pretty annoyed that customers are coming into the establishment.

Check in was easy. Everyone was spaced out. Plenty of bowling balls for each lane. We ate pizza which was very good. The music was what I like to listen to-older tunes. We had a great time.

Food was pretty good, lanes were nice, price is a little absurd, 25 bucks PER PERSON per lane. Also its so dark in there you can't even see the closest set of guide arrows on the lane.

The lane kept breaking. Either stuck ball, stuck pins, had to reset multiple times.

Good sizes of balls for kids, food is ok, great deal with go city pass. Friendly employees

Great customer service! We were greeted as soon as we came in and they did not penalize us for our missing party members. We were able to wait on them and still get a lane. That food was SO GOOD! I was NOT expecting that. The vibe was great and everyone there was laughing and having a great time. Very diverse crowd (which I appreciated) but the drinks were watered down

This is the WORST and most OVERPRICED bowling alley. Our lane malfunctioned after two frames, and they made us relocate. The balls are old and greasy. They didn't honor our coupon! HORRIBLE place. Go mini-golfing or kayaking instead.

The young lady who assisted us with purchasing a lane was as dry as paint. It felt as if we were bothering her. When asked about getting my 2yr old the ramp so he could bowl; she merely just pointed to the corner and said “They should be over there”…

It’s… a bowling alley. And a very expensive one, but nothing special for what you pay. We had fun bowling but for $32 per person for an hour, we won’t be back. We planned to eat there but didn’t want to waste time eating since we were on the clock, so I can’t speak to the food quality.

the alley wasn’t crowded at all and the facility could’ve done better with social distancing. perhaps with leaving a lane between each party. it was more than enough lanes to do so the night we went. overall pretty cool.
