good family fun - as you would expect

Clean, family friendly fun. Always a good, basic place for bowling and games. They also do a great job with kids parties.

If you want to go bowling in this area go to bowlmor Bethesda!! The staff is very unfriendly and did not help us at all when our game got messed up. It is also very unkidfriendly. Do not come here.

Lets be real. Bowling is fun but it isn't as cheap as it use to be. Not sure what happened over the years but its become nearly outrageous to go bowling these days.

Decided to go bowling with the family - we have not gone bowling in a long time and the overall experience has not changed. I just thought over time the bowling experience would change with the times - nope. same old dirty bowling alley and greasy food selections. Someone should bring bowling into the 2000's.

Friendly atmosphere, small arcade, well maintained. This place has regular leagues so call ahead to find out times. Birthday parties are also held here regularly and they have a room for the cake and pizza during the party.

I believe this organization needs to find a better balance between price and volume of business. While the lanes are clean and in good shape, the establishment was empty in the afternoon. The prices per game and for shoes were ludicrous, so I left without bowling.

A great bowling spot. Lots of parking. Good vibe. Clean and safe. Bowling today seems to be more expensive than years ago, but what else is new. Tons of lanes. Great place for a birthday party, too.

Clean and well kept. Large bowling alley with many lanes. Gets very busy on Saturday nights. Gives kids free games in the summer for As on their report cards. Good food for a bowling alley.

Bowling is bowling. Staff can be as sweet as honey or as mean as a rattlesnake. Bowling is bowling. Food is great!
