Rainy day at the beach. Bowling seemed like a good idea. If your youngest is older than 8, however, management has a strict policy against bumpers. So, our 11-year old--who doesn't bowl--had zero fun rolling gutters. We left after two frames. Policy doesn't work in...More

People were incredibly friendly from the moment we walked in. The place was really clean and didn't smell like smoke like a lot of bowling alleys do. They also have bumpers for kids to use when bowling. We will be back next year for sure!

Had a good time bowling with my family when the beach got rained out. A nice older facility that looks to be well cared for.

Had a blast at this place! Deanna at the snack bar was amazing, very polite, upbeat and professional! I was amazed that they have Pickle Pops, I haven't had them since I was a kid. They went perfect with the great cheeseburger that Lindalu made!...More

Came here for the Emerald Coast Invitational. Was a nice center, just wish the bar was more towards the middle since we bowled on the high end of the alley the whole weekend. But it was a fun tournament and will definitely come back.

Good clean bowling alley. The staff was very friendly & helpful. Bowling balls are available in all weights. Bowling charges were $2.00 per game. Right in line with bowling centers across the country.
