Good place for a rainy afternoon or birthday party

My grandkids love for me to take them here. This is fun bowling, video games and some okay food. Just a fun, family place.

Gulf Bowl is a fun getaway for the entire family. It's clean, well staffed with bowling, restaurant/grill, arcade and laser tag. If you are at the beach and it's raining, this is a good place to take the family. Local papers have discount coupons but the hour rate for bowling is the best deal.

There is a lot to do to drop some calories, bowling, video games, because the servings of food are always ample here. A favorite are the ranch fries, Thick cut potatoes served with ranch dressing. Big, fresh made burgers, po boys of shrimp or oysters, and many other selections are quite tasty.

Our family was there on Thursday for the Summer Deal. $19.99pp for an hour of bowling with shoes included, unlimited laser tag, and a $10 arcade card. Our teens had a blast and my husband and I enjoyed a nice, leisurely meal together. The place is clean and welcoming. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Went on a Friday evening for a friends 62nd birthday with a few other friends (6 total.) An hour of bowling was $50 with shoes. Nice lanes, automated scoring, wide range of alley balls, clean shoes. Not too crowded on the lanes. 16 beers on draft. "Captain's Choice" restaurant is a place for a burger...get the potato planks...skip the fries.... More

It is a fun place to stop but for 5 people for 1 hour the cost to bowl was over $38.00. It was way to much. They do have other games for kids to play and win prizes.

This was second time we visited for dining. The food was not the best the first time so we decided to give it another chance. We met there with 10 members of our family, everyone was served except my wife. The waitress said it was coming right out, well after almost 10 minutes it came out. So what happened was... More

We chose The Gulf Bowl as opposed to Arena the next level arcade at the Wharf because the reviews of it weren't great. We had two teens and two kids ages 3 and 5 with us, and one of the teens said this was the best beach vacation day ever! Laser tag was a huge hit for all of us,... More

This place is great. Our youngest gets bored bowling, but laser tag and the arcade games are just right for her. We have had and been to birthday parties here. All of the kids seem to enjoy themselves.
