    Good and service were excellent. Ended up sitting outside because the music was so loud but the weather was perfect and the patio is nice with games. Will definitely go back.

    I heard mixed reviews on the food and drinks before going. Honestly the food and drinks were great! We had shareables- crab cakes, Brussels sprouts, truffle fries, Korean chicken sliders and wagyu beef burgers- all delicious. The service is where it lacked. Our server seemed distracted and overwhelmed, and then when we moved to the darts, it took 25 minutes to get someone to serve us. Overall we had a great time, we just hope the service will improve!

    Not worth the money for food or drink. Software sucked for the virtual games. For the price, thought we would get much more. The waitress was great, but everyone else seemed uninterested in their jobs.

    Beautiful venue. Excellent food, drinks, and service. A little on the pricey side. Virtual game bays are very expensive, IMO. Most people seemed to be more on the bowling and billiards side. The virtual bays would be good if you have a big group or with kids, but for date night just stick to the other side.

    10/10 we will be back! We booked our first hour bowling then our second hour at the billiards. We ate delicious food! We had the pork belly lettuce wraps as an appetizer, and chicken sliders and a burger for our entree. I can’t name all the cocktails we had but they were good too! It was a nice vibe and Annabelle our server took great care of us. I’d ask for her again!

    The overall atmosphere of the place is good. The food was good, the service was good. We reserved a 6:30pm spot for a Friday evening which turned out to be not necessary. To reserve a spot, you pay $25 when you make the reservation, but then instead of them putting that toward your bill, they just leave that as a charge that you incur just to have your name on their list. Sad way to do business.

    We had a decent experience, we did have a first time server that was still learning the ropes, so that wasn’t perfect, but totally understandable. The only thing that was sort of strange is that it’s advertised as a place that has high-quality golf experience, but we had a manager (I presume) sort of stalk us for a while until I asked him what was up, and then I got a lecture about golf balls, and how we should be using their balls and not our own. I am a single handicap golfer, and I wanted to go there to work on my game a bit and teach my wife how to play. The balls they provided our trash, And there should be no reason that using a standard golf ball, (a chrome soft in my case), would cause any problems, but the manager was a little aggressive about using their balls, and through the conversation demonstrated he had zero real knowledge about golf ball construction. So that was frustrating and made me feel like I should find another place to work on my game. Other than that everything else was great, and if I could use my own golf balls and be left in peace doing so I would probably go back more frequently.

    We did a reservation for bowling with the kids. Bowling area is very nice and clean. Food was very good. The prices are not so crazy. But! The service was so so slow, we ordered one quesadilla and flatbread for the kids and takes forever! And we ordered lemonade but they did not bring it at all! We had a hard time to see the waiter too, he did not check us.

    We got through it. It extremely loud. I thought the service was slow. We had reservations to play darts and pool but that got out push back 30 mins. We couldn’t get out dinner order in so we just did drinks and appetizer. We would have never got to play ( oh they served appetizers and there were no plates on the table) They also messed up the bill like 3 times! It was a lot of waiting and yelling to talk with friends. It’s still a pleasant place. But it’s is loud. I was given a free birthday snack

    It was a good time, really good food, not a lot of explaining how it works and had to keep asking, was told we had 2 hour reservation but at 1.5 hour in middle of game it stopped and was told we only had 1.5 and nothing they could do. But then went to play pool.

    There was no explanation when they set us up in the golf simulator that the default was 2 hours and we couldn’t extend. Impossible to play a full 18 on a weekend here. Food was excellent but pretty frustrating when they walked over and said “has anybody told you about the time limit? You have about a minute and a half left.” We were prepared to pay for hours longer and would’ve spent hundreds of dollars more on food and drinks. The driver was broken and there were several broken balls too.

    We had a reservation for dining and a separate reservation for bowling. Our daughter wanted to have her birthday here. Dining was great. When it was time to go bowling, we were given the option for one or two hours. We chose two hours. After the first hour, the screen prompted us the time limit us up. After talking to the bowling staff, I said they had other reservations and that we had to end our bowling. This was totally disappointing for our daughter's first bowling experience. We most likely will not be recommending this place to friends from that experience considering we had to pay for a reservation..

    The check-in process was terrible. We had reservations for bowling and when we arrived at our reservation time, the lane was not ready. We were told to wait and step aside. When I went back to ask, the older woman told me to wait as she had 5 other things on her mind that she needed to do first. She was rude. When we finally got to our lane, it was dirty and had to be cleaned. We had to ask for a server. Overall, it was a terrible experience. We would not recommend it to our friends and family.

    We were there right at an hour before anyone came to take even a drink order. That’s after I had gone and ask twice to have someone come to the bay. Waiter wasn’t very friendly after he finally showed up. Plus they ask you to tip on the bay rental charge. A tip should only be on the food and drink service. And what is a $25 reservation charge?

    We had a great time bowling at Spare Birdie and the food and drinks were great as well. We had sliders, pizza, queso, and guac in our group and it was all great. Darts was fun too but a little crowd if you have a group larger then 4. Highly recommend.

We moved over to play an hour of bowling and came back to a table to enjoy desert. Chris "hosted" us the entire time and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you!

    Wife loved the place from an astitic’s perspective. I thought the food was ok. pork belly wraps were like warm at best. Kids food was not good from the kids perspective. Bowling lane kept recording strikes or adding pins to score. I’m not a fan of the pins with wires.

    What a great place! Nice ambiance, decor, and layout. Food was tasty and beautifully presented. The virtual bays offer various games, and the the bowling and billiards make it a fun place for the family. Lots of menu options for food and drink. The staff was helpful, friendly, and attentive. Being able to book a reservation was key because it does get busy and spaces are limited for games, bays. Will be back!
