It was our first time visiting post-renovation. They swapped air hockey for a great bar and BBQ restaurant! We went late afternoon and had a great 2 hours with the family! Next time, we'll go even later and grab dinner. Lots of fun! (The afternoon price special didn't hurt either!)

When you can't go to the beach with your kids, the Orleans Bowling Center is a great choice. We came on a Saturday afternoon and the place was jumping. They told us it would be about an hour for our group of five so we went out and did a little shopping and came back in an hour. Happily they... More

Went here on a rainy day and though the guy at the counter seemed a bit flustered and annoyed by the crowds, everything else was awesome. The place is very clean, well kept and the food was awesome! Will definitely return! Sadly, the waitress told us they are taking out 2 lanes to expand the bar and add an area... More

We went to try candle pin bowling and it was really fun. It was fun to try a different kind of bowling. We had dinner there as well and our waitress was amazing and brought out my niece's food right away. I had pulled pork which tasted great!

Great little bar to go have BBQ. The food was very good and the service was friendly. It is a nice little cozy place to grab a bite to eat, have a beer and watch people bowl.

I pondered the question as to why Trip Advisor does not list Big Dog BBQ, this excellent bar/BBQ joint inside the bowling alley separately? Answer. Because it's really GOOD and really small and someone on the TripAdvisor staff wants to make sure that only a few people know about it so that there's always ribs for them. The gig's up... More

We had so much fun on a rainy day! This was old school bowling alley where you had to note your score on paper :) Very friendly service. We have stayed till 4pm and had "dinner" in the little restaurant located by the bar (the same building). OMG! This was the best meal we had in Cape since we came... More

The Orleans Bowling Center has added Big Dog BBQ, a great bar and cafe with traditional Texas BBQ. A warm and friendly staff, creative drinks, 16 tap beers and a well selected wine list all complement the perfection already coming out of the kitchen. With Chef Diane Lipinski at the helm and oak in the smoker, the flavors are so... More
