The person at the bowling counter was very friendly. The waitress that greeted us was as well. We ordered fried green tomato and they were very good. Ribs very good.... More

The bowling was fun but if you don't go all the time, there might be a bit of a learning curve. Didn't know until about half way through about the ramps the kids could use or if we could bring beers onto the lanes. Not much explanation or guidelines. Not too cheap either. The kids had a great time though... More

Step back to the 50's with this nostalgic bowling alley. The new owners have done wonders to renovate and modernize while maintaining that retro experience that is a one of a kind. For visitors who have never tried Candle Pin bowling, you are in for a treat. Perfect for children who get a chance to bowl like adults by holding... More

This bowling center has been in operation for a very long time and it shows BUT we still love the place and go every Wednesday night for a "girls' night out." The most recently added offerings of food and drink totally make up for the old balls and rundown appearance of the alleys. I've had the ribs, burgers, fried green... More

The OBC/Big Dogs Pub has become my favorite eating spot in Orleans. The food is amazing...my fave is the farm salad and ribs. Also love the fried green tomatoes, brisket, pork belly BLT...everything I have tried is awesome!! Not only is the food relish, the staff is great and its just a fun place to hang out.

WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE I'VE EVER HAD THE MISFORTUNE TO HAVE TO DEAL WITH!! First I called to make sure they would be open at 10 (which every website says that's what time they open) and the kid LAUGHED AT ME and acted like I was crazy for even suggesting it. Then I had a few more questions and he acted... More

We knew the lanes would be open and headed here after a frustrating day driving around in the rain. We had not been Candle Pin bowling before but the gentleman behind the counter was helpful and really took care of us. We only bowled 1 game but had a ball

Orleans Bowling is known for its fine barbecue menu, something that one would not ordinarily think of when Cape Cod comes to mind. Truth is, their reputation is well deserved: the BBQ is fresh, well cooked, served in ample portions and the sides are excellent. Service is quick, prices are very fair and it's a meal you'll be glad you... More
