Campy fun!

Great pizza, lots of craft beer choices and old-school candlepin bowling alley - what more could you want! Pizza is thin crust with lots of locally-sourced ingredients.

We bowled for an hour (the rental rate was $25 for the hour per lane) and that was perfect. This is not a fancy - I.e. There is... More

It is very kid friendly but you can also go with a spouse or date and enjoy pizza and drinks. They are great for parties too. Sometimes getting a lane is tough but you can... More

Enjoyed some nice beers at the bar and while we played. Restaurant was very busy so we ate at the bar which suited us fine. Pizza was... More

We were able to make reservations since there were 8 of us. We arrived on time to find our lanes waiting. We ordered some beer and had a great hour. Fun on New Years Eve!

A walk back into time with good old fashioned bowling with a twist. Pizza and creative drinks. Love the flatbread pizza and fresh local vegetables used on their pizza's. They have a very good bar serving old standby's and newer drinks that quench your thirst.
