Basic, but good food

Not a bowler, but come here for an occasional dinner. Good burgers and an always good tenderloin sandwich.

This little dive set in a bowling alley has the best onion rings in the area. It has the best service too. The other food is pretty typical pub fare and they have a nice selection of beer for a small place.

Good fried foods at a cheap price. I recommend a stop here if your in the area. Try the pizza burger. Bowl a game or two when you're finished eating.

If you're looking for great food, you won't find it here. But, you will find sustenance to keep you alive. As the last poster mentioned, this is bar food. Nothing more, nothing less.

We stop in to the Comet Bowl every so often and are never disappointed with the food, from time to time the service is a little slow but typically its only when they are really busy.

If not for pricing being a bit over the top, I would give them a 5. They offer a generous menu and have the best appetizers in town. The portions are impressive and promise a full stomach when you leave. Service is usually excellent, but I have had visits that left me somewhat disappointed. They also have a bar that... More
