So retro you will have flashbacks to childhood. Hope you remember how to score bowling. Beer and bowling, fun and cheap!

Came here for a bday party for a friend and had a blast! An old school bowling alley in which you keep your own score. Lots of games, good music, good food and yummy drinks!!

Simple, effective, cheap

It's better than average because of the price. Paper scorecards, average food offerings, lanes and facilities are definitely worn and show their age. If you're looking for cheap bowling and entertainment, this is the place. They have a great special of $13 per person for 2 hours of unlimited bowling including shoe rental. The Alley is off of Hillsborough Street, so parking is always a challenge.

Poor lanes

This bowling alley is very outdated and the lanes are in horrible condition with no oil. The prices were great however you get what you pay for. I had never been to an alley where you used score sheets. This is a very 70's establishment.

This is a great place for families and students. Great place for a birthday party, events for non-profits, business gathering....you name it! I had my daughter's surprise 21st birthday party here and it was perfect! I have also had a social for my Rotary Club here, and we all had a blast!

You can't beat the price.

We went to The Alley on a Friday night. We had a group of 8 people ... it was a weekend where our family was meeting my daughter's fiance's family for the first time. We thought we'd try something fun.

Other bowling alleys were full and had waiting lists, but not The Alley. I think that's because this place is not for the serious bowler. This place is for people who want to have a good time for very little money. We paid $13 per person, including shoe rental, for unlimited bowling. We scored our games with paper and pencil. The overhead displays hadn't worked for a long time. The bowling balls were chipped and the placed looked a little old. There is a nice bar that also serves pub food.

But we had a blast. We were there to have a fun time and we did. The bowling was cheap and the beers were too.

Set your expectations low and you'll have a great time!
