they were not able to accommodate my families dietary restrictions and actually got confrontational when I challenged them about the safety of the food. Turned out, my child did get sick due to cross contamination. Bowling and games are fine, but steer clear of the...More

Went there to bowl without having done so for many years. It was fun, easy parking, nice location and friendly staff. The food was also decent!

Unfortunately this bowling alley was renovated to become a flashy and modern waste of time. Initially we gave them the benefit of the doubt of having just opened. Two years later they are still demonstrating that the concept is flawed. I’d say failed, however they...More

Probably the worst bowling experience ever. The entire system of obtaining a lane is completely illogical. You enter the bowling alley and immediately meet a doorman who explains that you can’t sign up on the wait list until the wait list is only 10 people...More

Brand new place. Was impressed with the bowling technology and the food. There is also a mini arcade for the kids and a fully stocked bar. Games are a bit expensive and they charge higher prices at night and weekends but this place is more...More
