We were in town for an event. We came here as a group and had a great time but it was more about the people we came with than the staff. Our lane waitress was ambivalent , at best. I ordered a burger and she asked how I wanted it cooked. I replied medium and received a burned burger. Literally... More

We had a large group of 12 people for a Sunday afternoon and enjoyed a great time with food, drinks and bowling. The bowling lanes were good along with good seating but the controls to enter names and things like that was pretty worn. The food was amazing and far exceeded my expectations. And having a full service bar and... More

Not just blowing here, there is good food and great drinks. Casual, relaxing environment and lots of TV's to watch your favorite team. But, eat something, you will enjoy it.

Bayside is a fun bowling place and they have designed the space (lanes, dining area) with plenty of room. The technology is high-end so you can focus on the bowling. This all comes at a price, though, as Bayside is not cheap. Also, while the location is perfectly fine, it does seem out of the way. You go there to... More

Visited Bayside Bowl for an office party and was surprised by the comfortable, welcoming pub area! Probably the most pleasant bowling alley I have ever visited! The pub/lounge area is spacious with pleasant lighting, beautiful hardwood floors and large rustic tables with oversized benches. The food was great. I was impressed by the thin crust pizza and yummy appetizers --... More

We love spending a few hours as a family bowling-especially in the winter in Maine. Bayside is clean, fun and has good food and service. We'll be back often!

Came here after dinner on a Saturday night and was surprised to see it so empty. I agree that the front desk character needs to refine her charming disposition, but maybe that's part of the bowling culture. The menu looked pretty good, but unfortunately we did not try anything. And when they say you have the lane for an hour... More

Great atmosphere, good food, ten-pin bowling and live music. I love this place. Worth the drive up from Boston to see a show.

I love creativity--especially when used to alter our perceptions of the norm. In this case, Bayside Bowl has stretched the imagination of bowling and beyond. Once you get past the totally inhospitable front desk greeter, you are in for a wonderful experience of delicious food and lively bowling. I love sitting at the bar and sipping on an ice cold...
