Great place to hang out and bowl a few frames. Good selection of food and drinks, lots of TVs and can even connect to Bluetooth for your own music. Really liked the two-lane room for hanging out with friends. Staff was really friendly as well.

What a fantastic place to break the ice with clients. Cool place to bowl and enjoy food and drinks. We met here for a business meeting and then had a great time bowling. It’s a small and quaint place with super staff.
