“Fun time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Travelling with two young children, from the outside we really weren't sure what to expect from San Juan Lanes - but front desk staff gave it their thumbs up so we gave it a try. Although the food was pretty average (nothing bad, nothing great), we had a great time. The young guys working there were all really friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had a good time. Kids got a major kick out of the black light bowling and we loved the retro setting - I can see why it is a locals' hangout.

“enjoy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Rock solid, consistently good food. Reasonable prices too. Friendly service and a bowling alley for goodness sake.

“Food, fun and frivolity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

How about being able to bowl and eat great food and have a local brew all in the same place? San Juan Lanes Bar and Grill is an old-time local bowling alley that sports a current bar and wonderful, diverse menu in its restaurant. The local beers are great, and last night we shared the clam chowder (the best I have tasted), pizza, chicken taco salad and a wonderful, moist and very reasonably priced salmon dinner. The plus is the ability to spend an afternoon bowling (badly) with the evening capped by a great dinner. And Anacortes is a charming, walkable town. Not to be missed, and about an hour and a half north of the SeaTac airport.

“Don't tell everybody!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

Don't tell everybody about this place. Known to locals, this is a great breakfast stop.

We stop here when we jump off the ferry with the bikes.

Excellent food, service and right on the main drag.
