Lucky Strike Lanes - Belmar Ratings and Reviews
The staff at Lucky Strike is always very friendly and professional. They seem to enjoy their jobs and the hospitality is top-notch. They clearly value their patrons. We are proponents of eating locally grown food and we noticed the beef is from Niman ranch, in Colorado. We were celebrating our daughter's 18th birthday and will definitely have future celebrations there.
Went here with my husband, our 2 kids, my brother and my 80 yr old mother. We all had a fun time bowling and enjoyed snacking on the Parmesan Truffle fries and Margherita pizza. Service was quick, friendly and timely. Highly recommend this place for date night, a family fun outing or even a big group.
Our family celebrated an adult daughter's 32nd bday here on a Friday evening. We had 6 adults, 1 3 year old, and an infant in our party. The food was tasty with apps, pizzas and salad to share. The bar service and drinks were steady. The actual bowling was fun! The only draw back was the tightness of the bowling lanes. The guests in the lane next to us were very close to our "crowd" and felt as if we were in their space, by no fault of anyone's. We wish you could reserve 2 lanes for our group, but reservation making did not allow.
We didn't find out until a hour before that some of our party could not attend, so when we let the desk people know, they were not happy at all. They told us that they reserved the two lanes (now we only needed one ) and that it would be hard for them to fill the other lane. We tried to get extra adults to bowl and asked if we could just get the second lane, but they had already filled it, even though they said it would be hard to fill it (it has been about five mins ). We felt harassed a lot of the evening and felt like everything we did was wrong and we would get a reprimand. We ordered a lot of food and paid almost $200 total for the evening. Our server was good but the desk people were not as friendly. Everyone in our party felt like we were being picked on and it did not sit well with us. It was my son's birthday and he had fun so that what counted most but we were disappointed in the way we were treated. Hope they remember this for next time.
Worst experience I have had. We have been to this exact Lucky Strike Lanes before and it was great. This time my we had guests in town that we had not seen for a while and the experience was awful. Our lane was broken the whole time, when we got there there was plenty of open lanes and we kept asking for them to fix it, they would fix it and problem would happen all over again. We asked 3 times to move and they said oh we'll just come get it if it happens again. And it did. Pins were flying back on the lane, our balls were lost constantly. The staff was playing around ( mind you there were like 10 people back there ) just talking and chatting away. They never once moved us and the problems continued throughout the night. They have one job there bowling. If your bowling doesn't work at a BOWLING alley, I'd say there's a major problem. I complained to the manager at the end and he offered me a few vouchers which I turned down it was so bad.
I felt rushed and like I was breaking the rules because half my party was under 21. I paid a lot of money to feel rushed and unwelcome as a customer. The bouncer was rude. My second bowl in the 10th frame was turned off right when I bowled my last ball. I was so disappointed in how we were treated. I guess Lucky Strikes is no longer teenager friendly. We'll have to find somewhere else to bowl.
Lucky Strike Lanes - Belmar is a great place for friends to gather, catch up and bowl. It used to be a great place for dinner, too, until their recent menu change. Everything is fried :( No gluten-free options :( My "gluten-friendly" salad contained croutons :( Bowling was GREAT, though! :)
Please reconsider your recent menu changes and bring back healthy options.
The bowling alley was a good vibe but it was not a "reasonable" price for bowling. The nachos were not good at all and the service was just ok. The couches are way too low and hard to get up and down to bowl. There were plenty of lanes available and we were placed litterally right by another group which we didn't understand. Our couches were facing each other so it was like we were on a date with them. I would not mind this usually but I didn't understand this when there was plenty of other free lanes.
We had fun bowling but the dining experience left a lot to be desired. We ordered three pizzas for our group. When they arrived, I had to ask for plates- as if no one had thought to bring them. Our server came back once to ask how we were but then that was it. We were there for almost an hour without anyone stopping by to see if we needed something. And there was no one clearing the table when we finished things so we had empty glasses and plates all over the place.
When our bowling time was up, I had to flag down a different server to ask our waitress to bring us the check. I didnt think that should be so difficult. Meanwhile, I could see our server hanging out with the other servers laughing and talking. Perhaps she should have spent a little more time doing her job. I was not impressed at all with the service, especially considering how much money we were spending!
Bowling is a good way to celebrate the new year! We've never been to Lucky Strikes before so we thought it would be fun to go somewhere new.
It has a great feel to it! Love the low sofa seating and the big flat screen TVs at the end of the lanes. The scores of the games on the TVs could be a little more visible and it was just a little tight with 5 of us on one lane and close to 9 in the party next to us. Sometimes the score board did not reflect the actual amount of pins knocked down.
Over all it was a fun bowling alley and I would like to go back! I just wish when you are checking in for your lanes that the staff at the counter explained bowling etiquette! Not just here but ALL bowling alleys! Missed a couple of key shots because some kid just goes up and throws their ball just as you are taking off to do your own. But it might not have mattered if the scoreboard missed the pin count :)
We were a party of 8 and we all enjoyed the experience. Towards the end of our outing, we had a group of young boys(16ish) who were not really up on the ettiquete? of bowling. They were having a good time but weren't very consciences of others around them. Management didn't seem to want to speak with them so we did ourselves. It was better after that. We spent quite a bit of money and then were told we had to move because they had another reservation. Just kind of put a damper on the end of the evening
Lucky Strike Belmar does a great job with customer service and experience.
Their manager took great care of us and went above and beyond what was neccessary to make our experience amazing.
Lucky Strike seems to be quickly becoming a favorite holiday tradition for us.
We were entertaining out of town guests and everyone had a lot of fun. We did not go for the food but it was acceptable, especially for the 7 children we brought along. The service was very good when we got there, but the waitress got pretty busy later. The kids had a blast but the adults were concerned about the over stimulating atmosphere. There really was a lot going on with all the big screen TV's at the end of the lanes and music too loud to talk comfortably. The bowling itself seemed incidental, but them, none of us were avid bowlers.
Lucky Strike is a great place for a party for when you have a large group of different ages. We hosted a child's birthday party for my 10-year-old daughter and invited several families. I think everyone had a great time, from a 4-year-old to an 84-year-old. The food is very good (much better than the usual bowling alley) and the service couldn't have been better.
Lucky Strike staff was particularly CRAZY about being on time, hesitant to add bowlers. They were very STRICT for a time that is supposed to be leisurly and casual, does not make for a good time bowling, we were just there to have a good time and it was rigid.
