Consistent Good food

Have been here multiple times but have never bowled here. Best Old Fashion drink in town. Always get mine with extra cherries as theirs are the best. Black bean burger is solid choice but have never been disappointed with any choice. Always good would go back.

Went with friends and was surprised how good the food was and how reasonably priced Bowling was bowling but the fact that they would bring drinks and snacks to your lane was a nice surprise and pleasure able We also are in the restaurant with the same results Would recommend this theme as a nice night out

We went there initially looking for a place for a bridal party. The representative there was disinterested at best. She said go up stairs and look around. It was partyly partitioned off and dirty. We then ask about menus and were handed 2. The she disappeared. So did we. The charge you extra at the bar if you want ice.... More

This was our first time having dinner at this location, but just like the one closest to our home the food was affordable and delicious.

Excellent lunch and dinner here. We come on occasion but tend to avoid this place due to the crowds and noise. The bowling is fun but expensive. They have an outside patio area that's nice in the summer but again- to get a table is near impossible if you don't come early. You can't get a bad meal here though.... More

Fun place to go on a rainy day with plenty of time to enjoy all their activities. Great place for work events too. Their flat bread is pretty good!

I've been to Pinstripes twice -- once for lunch with a group of friends, and once for dinner and bowling with a larger group. The food is good, with enough vegetarian and fish options. The drinks were also good, but sometimes they showed up garnished and sometimes ungarnished. I expect consistency from the bar of a national chain. I don't... More

Came here for a birthday party. It's great that they allow you to decorate the space yourself. Considering the food is served up buffet style, the food is quite good. Unfortunately, it took three tries with three different waiters to finally get our table our drinks. Would be great if they have a beverage station so people can grab their... More

This is a sure thing, if you live in the area and you really can't decide, come here. Its always a happy place, you'll meet a lot of people, and the food is great, so not too much to think about...

I had a very nice lunch with 2 friends at Pinstripes today...other than they carry Pepsi and not Coke...we all had the bottomless soup and salad. The salad had a mixture of fresh colorful ingredients and the acorn squash soup was good. The room was also comfortable. This is a better quality restaurant than I would expect in this type... More
