“Great time with the family!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We went bowling with our 8 year old daughter and my parents. We arrived at noon on Sunday (when they open) and the lanes were already filling up. There was a birthday party for a teen girl but they stayed in their lanes and didn't disturb anyone. Our server was very attentive and refilled drinks (all new cups) without us even having to ask. The table space can be cramped because two lanes share one dining table. There were stand up tables behind the sofas where you lounge waiting your turn to bowl so we spread out a bit (there was a family with little ones in the next lane over and they were eating as well.) If a ball got stuck you just push the help button and someone fixed it ASAP. Note: if a colored pin is first in the rack and you get a strike you get a free game of bowling. Just let your server know and they will get you a certificate for a free game. We had a coupon for 4 free games from a fundraising book but all five of us played 2 games so it still cost a bit. Lunch was very good. Best sweet potato fries I have ever had. Lunch is a bit pricy but the food was worth it. We will be back for some bowling fun and our daughter wants her birthday party there. Since we saw how a party was run we are booking very soon.

“Bachelor Party Was a "Strike!"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Sparians was the location for a recent bachelor party. Everyone had a great time... and the men ranged in age from 4 to 70. Sparians provided great service, great food, and a great venue for a good time!

“A Place for Family Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

This is a multi-faceted venue for family fun. The bowling and food were great. Nice leather sofas to relax on while you await your turn to bowl. Only 12 lanes but very nice.
