I attended a group luncheon here in one of their private rooms. Lunch was served family style and the waitresses continued to bring food if something ran low. They did a good job in serving the crowd of about 30. The food was good, but not spectacular. After lunch we had six bowling lanes reserved for our group and it... More

The Pinstripes in South Barrington is, by far, my son’s favorite place to bowl. And at only $5 per kid and parents bowl free (M-F from 10am-12pm) – it’s my favorite too! Pinstripes definitely isn’t your typical league-loaded bowling alley. Far from it, in fact. It’s one of the nicest bowling alleys I’ve been to. From the front desk to... More

This place has several features besides a restaurant. There are bocce courts, weekend blues , event rooms and bowling. It is nice and fairly clean although the restrooms can get out of control very quickly due to the HUGE presence of kids parties. We came here on a Saturday afternoon at 2. We did make a bowling lane reservation for... More

We went with a group to play Bocce ball and then stay for supper. The Bocce ball was great fun and the service staff was very attentive. Then we went into dinning room and that's when things were not as good. After we ordered and while waiting for our food several had to ask for drink refills and glasses of... More

Drove a hour to get here to find out you NEED reservations. They should probably tell you that online or over the phone when you call in so you dont waste your time. Was told its over 3 hours of a wait. Best part is itd be 11:30pm and theyd close at 12:30pm so then youd over pay for everything... More

I've been to Pinstripes a couple times. The bocce courts are nice. The bar is good. Food is alright. Unfortunately, I have no experience bowling here. The staff seems to try hard, but always seems hurried. Don't get me wrong...the staff is nice and truly does appear to be trying, but attentiveness is lost due to them having to spin... More

Spent an evening with 7 friends playing Bocce, drinking and eating. Great value for an fun time. We had drinks and appetizers on the Bocce course. The service was excellent. Then after our game, we went to table in bar and finished up appetizers and more drinks.

Five times here, all above average and the last two exceptional. Slab of ribs melted in your mouth and taste great! Strong drinks, bread with herbed olive oil never stops and is a highlight of this establishment. We had a turkey platter at 11:30 on Thanksgiving, others had seafood pasta, etc. Everyone loved it!
