The female bartenders will not wait on female customers. They will look right past you and wait on the males. Sad thing is women will support each other. I have been a bartender and now co-own a bar in the fan area. I tip well because I understand. My girlfriends and I made several trips to the bar counter and... More

While the games and bowling are expensive they are worth it. The food on the other hand was not good this time at all. My food sat on the bar several minutes before being delivered. The other people in my party food arrived much later. The food simply lacked flavor and was too cool by the time it arrived.

This place has great appetizers, good drinks and excellent coverage for game times. They have tv's at each booth, and you have control over what is on. They also have a really big screen you can watch at almost any table or at the bar. I would recommend this place for food, sports, bowling and concerts.

Huge venue, bowling, sports bar..... We stopped for a quick bite at lunchtime, after the rush, found a comfortable booth in the sports bar area, we were the only patrons at the time and our server was very helpful, we chose the burgers and since it was cold and rainy outside we opted for hot tea. The service was outstanding,... More

Nicest bowling alley I've ever been too. They give a military discount and it's clean and has great staff. We took my niece and nephew and they loved it. There's an arcade and a really pretty restaurant as well. Nice way to spend a rainy day with the family.

We took our two children and decided to visit this bowling alley as a change of pace. It looks as if it would be a lot of fun with the bowling alley, video games and restaurant, but it was not for us. We decided to take in a game and for a single game with shoe rentals cost us $40.... More

The food was just ok. Nothing you couldn't get frozen at Costco and stick in the oven and come out with the same results. So, why, why, why did it take FOREVER (30, 45, 60 mins? I lost track) to get our lousey food? Were the servers, kitchen workers, etc. bowling in between? Don't bother.

Tried this for the music mid-week. Disappointed because ( as usual) music was so loud I could not hear most of the vocals. there was no escaping the big speakers. Even before the live music started it was loud. Food only low average in the upstairs venue. Beer selection is not very good either. Service that night was OK but... More

Nice decor and plenty of bowling lanes but the food is nothing special and on the weekends, there is way too much drama inside. From country music to ghetto-fab. it has it all and all the problems in between. It's a place with an identity crisis, not knowing which crowd they want to cater to. Might be a great place... More
