Somehow Mel's was given a 1 star rating by me, but that was unintended. Great place for some entertainment. Everything still looks new, too.

This a fun place for all ages and there is a game room if you don't want to bowl. The food is good and the atmosphere is for all ages. The only drawback is, it is hard sometimes to get a lane, especially during league bowling.

Love the atmosphere. The lane set up is cozy, so it's fun to be there with friends. The food is good, if you can get service. The service is HORRIBLE! I ordered and paid for sweet potato fries... 45 minutes later, still not received. Had to get manager involved just to get food! And he had a crappy attitude. The... More
