The main focus is the bar area, which was filled with fans watching a Steeler game. The bowling lanes are nearby and the bar area overlooks them. Seating is fairly limited... maybe 12 tables. Menu is basic pub food and I found the pizza to be disappointing. A bit too much cheese and bland flavor although the crust was decent.... More

We go here A LOT! Our family loves to go bowling and get Pizza and Wings. The staff is great! There is a bar area/restaurant separate from the Bowling area. They have live bands, karaoke just to name a few and in close proximity to the Ramada Inn(walking distance). One visit and you'll be back for more!!

We chose this restaurant based on the great Trip Advisor reviews. We arrived on a Sunday morning around 11:30. We weren't greeted, given menus, silverware, or napkins. We took some menus from another table to find they were breakfast menus. A few people at our table wanted breakfast and a few wanted lunch, but we were told we couldn't do... More

Well, we had an Idlewild-exhausted child in tow and needed a place to eat near the Ramada, one that would be boisterous enough to drown out a potential child meltdown. Wicked Googly fit the bill! Standard kid's menu fare, but when I asked if they could do a grilled cheese for my daughter, they cheerfully complied! My wife had a... More

Redbeard1969, glad you had a good time at The Googly. We try to provide a family friendly place. It does get a little louder in the evenings when bands or djs are playing. It's sound like you enjoyed your food. Hope to see you again soon. More

Don't miss the buffalo chicken dishes ... it's to die for. But please, WG owners, you need a better seating plan. The bar is much too small to accommodate the many people who want to stop by and just leave due to lack of space. Maybe remove the dance floor and/or the "couch and coffee table" area and expand the... More

We walked over from our hotel / the Ramada, because my husband had discovered that they had $1 bowling on Thursday nights! When we went in & saw the menu we decided to eat first! The food was great, the staff friendly & helpful, and we had a GREAT time bowling!
