Older place and mainly locals here. Service is slow. Check out their web site for coupons and on Groupon.

Nice, clean facility. Good service and had brand new bowling shoes. We went on a Wednesday, you buy one game (for one person) at $5.25 you get one game free. Per lane, per hour was $20. Had a really nice time, very relaxing and fun!
