The Corner Alley's downtown location in Cleveland's East Fourth...

The Corner Alley's downtown location in Cleveland's East Fourth Neighborhood will be undergoing an extensive renovation project beginning July 1 and continuing through mid-September. The multifaceted dining and entertainment complex, operated by MRN Hospitality Group, is getting a complete overhaul to the interior and exterior facade. After the upgrades are completed, The Corner Alley will boast a contemporary design and layout accentuated with black metals and light maple. Other major improvements include a new bar with open-air access on East Fourth Street and a transformed open-air space facing Euclid Avenue. Along with the physical transformation of The Corner Alley, the cuisine will feature noticeable upgrades as well. The menu will showcase traditional sports bar selections with high-quality ingredients and fun combinations.

Gutter ball shots!

You need the gutter ball shot to keep your ball out of the gutter : ) Pesto pizza, drinks, an hour with friends bowling. It's so much fun, very relaxing and intimate.

The seating area in front of the approach is much tighter than before the renovation and presents a challenge for bowlers to circulate in and through the area. The ball return also takes an unusually long time. The food was a total miss on this last visit, but decent beer selection.

It's probably the only bowling alley in downtown Cleveland, but it was nearly empty on the Sunday afternoon we were there. I personally feel that the cost of bowling for one hour (VERY carefully timed and monitored) for 4 people (plus shoe rental) is too expensive for the average family. We had several bowling delays, one being when our bowling... More

The place itself is beautiful. The bowling machines work without many problems. Food was yummy. BUT the waitress was obviously overworked and although I saw her running around doing things our table went 45 minutes between visits. Also, the entire building is DISGUSTING. The floors looked like they hadnt been mopped in months! The women's bathroom smelled like sewer and... More

You were re-modeling and I did not get to eat there this time when visiting Cleveland. But I am pleased that you are making improvements on what I thought was an already great place to eat.

Went with my gf. Prices are very reasonable, place was clean and nice. Got some good service and the games went smoothly. Would recommend this place to anyone. Tip: buy per game and not per hour.

The staff was very friendly. Specialty drink menu had very tasty drinks, I ordered a few different martinis off of it. My husband and I ordered pizza while we bowled. The pizza was surprisingly really really good. And we had such a great time bowling. The location is great, as it's right on 4th Street, where there's a whole street... More

Unusually attractive, sunlit bowling lanes, with huge tv screens at the front of each lane to keep track of games in progress. Comfortable couches at each lane, balls are color-coded by weight with finger-hole size marked on each (why has no one else ever done this?) We had drink service while bowling, and real food seemed to be available, too.... More

Our group of 8 was in Cleveland for couple nights and wanted something diff to do, food was ordinary pub food, and bowling after for an hour. Very casual and enjoyed the evening.

We stopped in for 2 people to get burgers and fries and one person to get Mac and cheese, we also had a starter of fried pickels and a salad. The bill was $72. A bit high but the food was good and our waitress was really nice.
