Whether with family, friends, business or church outing Bayou Bowl has always been a fun place to go relax and have some fun. Although it's aged a bit, the ball returns sometimes have issues and there is no digital scoring it's still a great place to experience some old school fun. Have been here many times over the years and... More

The bowling alley is a much older version of bowling alleys. We had problems with ball return, pins and so forth. It is the only bowling alley close so I guess it is used a lot for tournaments and leagues and not able to keep up the maintenance. Just very dated but the staff were nice.

This is a great bowling center. We've been bowling here for many years. The owner, managers and staff are very friendly. This is a center with 40 wood lanes. There's open bowling every day and plenty of league bowling. They also have youth bowling leagues several times a year. This is a great place to join a league and meet... More

I have lived in West Monroe my entire life and always love coming here to bowl, but every time we play the games there is always a problem with at least one of them. And don't even think about letting them know if one messes up or plan on getting your money back. They will just tell you they don't... More

We went for my daughter's birthday and the kids enjoyed the time spent there. None of us are good bowlers, but everyone enjoys trying. Thankfully, bumpers kept us from jumping lanes. They had some kids "all you can bowl" programs for the summer, but I don't know what the fees would be after that. The facility seemed pretty well kept,... More

Okay, if you are bored in the summer with kids you can pay for your shoes and for an additional $5 it is all you can bowl! Keep in mind this is only during times when school is out ie summer and holiday closings.

Entire place needs to be updated....But the kids still had fun! No computers for scoring, the system got off many times and pushing the reset button at times did not work. the place seemed understaffed....But like I said the kids had fun.
