Grand Central Restaurant & Bowling Lounge Ratings and Reviews
It was not that busy which was great. However our server didn't come over to warm up coffee and refill water only once. I asked for a to go box with my order and to bring out with my food. I said I really would like it and didn't get it and I had to ask for it
This restaurant was a surprise. We expected all that come with a restaurant that is connected with a bowling alley but the reality exceeded our expectations. Great menu, reasonable prices, vibrant (yes noisy but it's a bowling alley so come on!)
It was our anniversary and I mentioned that just once in an email to the manager. and the special treatment we received started at the door with the hostess acknowledging our special day, carried through the meal with a special dessert for us recommended by our server and included a visit from the manager and continued on to our bowling session after dinner where we were acknowledged again on our special day. We were really happy and had a great, super fun time bowling with the grown ups. Thanks!
food was mediocre at best. Limp boring cold potatoes, very little hollandaise, had to repeatedly ask for coffee. despite two emails confirming our reservation the hostess did not have it and we had to wait a half hour to be seated. Being a former restaurant manager I noticed the staff did not seem to be working together, lot of confusion going on. Definitely would not go back.
The one disappointing thing was that they ran out of some alcohol on New Year's Eve. Didn't seem that the event was prepared for the event because they ran out when we sat down at 9. I also didnt.like that there was no room for dancing. There was ample.room where the bowling was, they shouldve utilize the downstairs. I've been here before and the service and ambiance has been good so that is why I would refer this place.
Everyone is reporting having a great time---giving me lots of compliments for thinking of bowling for the holiday. Your ad about bowlling for the holiday was the inspiration.
The only thing, and it was my fault, was to make reservations for a restaurant/bar table as well as bowling lanes. Since there was a table over the bowling balls to have food on, the restaurant table wasn't needed.
I loved it! The food was great and our server did a good job. There was one SUPER obnoxious guy sitting at the bar. There was a football game on and he was SHOUTING at the TV the entire time we were there. I had to try and not let it ruin my night, but it was hard to hear my husband over this guy. Somebody should've asked him to be quieter. That is the only negative thing. Also, if you're going for bowling, don't go on a Friday or Saturday night unless you have a large group, because the bowling is way more expensive those nights.
