“Get there early”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Good food and great atmosphere. Very modern version of a bowling alley. Must get there early to guarantee a lane, otherwise may have very extended wait.

“Bowling/Dining Positive Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

WOW! CLEAN,Friendly staff,good food and variety of food, and pleasant atmosphere. It is a unique bowling center that focuses on and delivers a much better experience than typical bowling centers. It is small,and quaint, but fits our community perfectly, and offers a place for safe late night fun and food. I'm glad it's in our town!

“We're regulars. We love it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

They have a killer deal on summertime passes that can't be beat! Da wife, da teenage boy and I (da old fart dad) buy them every year. Lanes are clean, good selection of balls/shoes. The staff are great fun to talk/work with if you're not grumpy yourself. They've been great to work with.
Good comfy couches instead of the plastic seats. TV's everywhere. My favorite part is the giant pics of Babe Ruth rolling a ball for duck pins and the shot of Winston Churchill rolling a ball (with stogy in mouth).
The music isn't my taste (but then I'm an olde fart), but some good tunes occasionally spin up (Mumford and sons). I don't like the black light bowling nights. But it's a great place for the Hilliard kids! And that's more important.
They also have several volleyball courts (area called "Spikes") outside. Bands outside (go for "Flannel Shark") and other fun activities.

Go. Enjoy. You'll like it.

“Upscale bowling place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Wonderful place to gather for fun and food with family. The décor is retro and clean, the music is not too loud, black lights are great with good service. Not your everyday food menu.

“It could have been better with little effort”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

We were looking to kill a few hours on Saturday morning. This seemed to be the perfect place. A bit pricy, but frankly that didn't bother me much. That said, we were assigned an alley where we had to ask for assistance a few times. OK. Asking for assistance? Don't bother. Rather the staff doesn't want to be bothered. Too bad the service was miserable because it could have been a great time.
