Purchased through groupon and so worth it. Arrived Sunday morning at opening time and got right in with no wait time. Attendant made this experience great she noticed our 10 year old could quite possibly bowl a perfect game of zero with the gutter balls and she immediately put up the bumpers for her turns. We had an hour of time and weren't going to finish our last game and our time was extended so we were able to finish. That was such a nice gesture. Climate is very cool and comfortable and the bathrooms are clean. Fun time for our family.

Bartender was very nice and friendly but the guy at the counter was VERY RUDE! We showed up 3 hours before close and he told us to come sooner next time.... okay??
I have to say though, Garrett was lovely and gave us great service all night!!

We booked Gator Lanes through Groupon, which seemed like a really good deal. We arrived an hour after the opening time advertised on the internet to find that it wasn't open, so we came back later in the day. Our first impressions were that the place was old, tired, and far from clean. No problem getting shoes, and a lane, because the place was very quiet, which didn't surprise us as the only member of staff there clearly couldn't be bothered. We had a problem starting the game as the screen told us to press the white button, but there wasn't one, so my husband went back to the desk to ask for help. The same member of staff was on his mobile phone, and he spent the next couple of minutes finishing whatever it was he was doing before he spoke to my husband, which really annoyed both of us. We both enjoyed the games up until the last 6 minutes when the game came to a stop. We had to wait 4 minutes for the only member of staff to return from wherever he was and fix it. With one minute left we just managed to finish the game. Upon leaving we turned to thank the member of staff just as he sneezed into the air right over the bowling balls in one of the lanes!! Would we go bowling again? Absolutely. Would we go back to Gator Lanes? Not in a million years.

Sorry about your experience,think you have wrong center.Nothing on screen says push white button. I asked John at front desk that day and he is perplexed about what you're saying.I never see John on cell phone.I"m assuming this is same day u put review up.We just renovated center(cool industrial look) last year.Everything's new.

This place is by far one of the worse bowling places I have been too. There gaming area for kids, if you want to call it a gaming area has only a few games were worked. Several machines didn't even work right while others just took your money. All the staff said was that they are not responsible for the machines. But they are the first to talk you into using them.

There would not honer the groupon for bowling that we purchased. First we were told that we couldn't use it because of league's. Then we were told that we couldn't use it on Wednesday or Thursday night.

Management complained about groupon and how they are misrepresenting them on the site yet won't let us use the groupon or offer a refund.

Rainy Days and Mondays we like to bowl.

Once a month or so we go, the kids more often. Bowling and arcade games. We like the bar . good place to watch a game. Food is OK, we always have fun. It is not expensive at all.

I brought a group of older adults here for an outing. The staff was so nice, accommodating and helpful. They could not have done more to assist us. Since they have limited range of motion the staff set up ramps (like children use) and gutter guards to make bowling easier. The place is clean and bright and very pleasant. I talked to the bartender who said during football season they have Philadelphia Eagles game watching parties with 50/50 and drink specials. We are Eagles fans and plan to come back for a game. They said it's a large to
Run out for Sunday afternoon games but they do not get ore season games. Looking forward to a return trip.

Got a groupon for up to six people to bowl for one hour (including shoe rental) for $29. The lanes were very nicely kept. The women’s and children’s shoes looked new. They had automatic bumpers and gator “assist” for the child in our party. The complex itself is very impressive. You could really spend some time here. They have dart boards, basketball throw, pool tables, arcade and trampoline park for the kids ($6 to jump for 30 minutes). There is a full bar. A great time was had by all.
