We go to pinstripes at least three times a week! The food is great and bowling is fun! We really like the Sunday Brunch and go there every week!! I really don't want to rate it so high, I am afraid everyone will start going there and it will be difficult to get reservations.

What more can you ask for? This place is attractive, the staff is professional, the bar scene is friendly or respectful of "privavcy," the food is good, family friendly, Sunday brunch, outdoor space (season/weather permitting), can accomodate meetings -to-weddings, etc., go bowling or play bacci ball. What more does one need?

When you walk in the noise is overwhelming as its a HUGE space with people playing bocce ball and there's bowling. The ceilings are stories high with no sound proofing and it's about 400,000 ft. big!!!! It's almost impossible,to hear people at the bar . The restaurant is in another room but the doors open so the noise level is... More

Who would think a bowling alley/bocce place would have such good food. My In-laws live close by and raved about the place so I went along. We had a fun game of bocce on their excellent indoor bocce field. Lunch was outside in the garden overlooking the hill of Northbrook with the golf course. Excellent selection of Italian dishes and...

We have been to Pinstripes many times. The food is consistently good. Pizza/flatbread, pastas, steaks have all been good. Desserts too. Sometimes there is a wait but there is usually a bocce court available to entertain the kids. Bowling is also available.

Pinstripes is first and foremost a leisure centre offering Ten Pin Bowling and Bocce, which also caters for parties and large gatherings. There are also indoor and outdoor dining facilities which offer good straightforward dishes. We usually have salads and flat breads which are always excellent. Service is always cheerful and efficient and the food is GOOD

The bar area in Pinstripes is a great spot to meet a friend for happy hour. We ended up ordering some appetizers - our servers and the bartender were personable and attentive. I plan to go back next time and play Bocce!

I had been going to Pinstripes for a while and always ordered the gluten free pasta. I told every wait staff I have celiac so I avoided the meatballs and the regular pasta but was told meat sauce was gluten free. Found out this last time that the meat sauce contains gluten. Now I know where my rash came from.
