    Pricing structure really makes no sense. People are paying per lane per hour, with a group of people it would make more sense for each individual to have their own lane to maximize their bowling time and pay the same individually as 4 people sharing a lane, but only playing a quarter of the time. Food and drinks were fine though, ambience was great too. Value for money is just not there.

    Horrible beginning to end. We had a large group, two lanes…both lanes were out of sync with the scoring and balls/pins getting stuck for at least 25-30 minutes out of the one hour session. $25 per PERSON, per HOUR…PLUS shoe rental. We had to ask for lane assistance FIVE times before we gave up and called it. When we complained, the response (with much attitude) was “you should have asked to be moved”! I guess complaining 5 times and having the game reset 5 times didn’t clue them in that we needed to be moved. And then…right on the stroke of 60 mins, it was GAME OVER. The manager caught wind of our predicament as we were leaving and offered us a a free beer. $500 (including a few mediocre chicken strips) for 30 mins of “fun”. Never again.

    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

    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.

    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.
