We went bowling with some friends and had a nice time. There was only one server, who came over before as soon as we got there before we'd looked at the menu. Then didn't come back, we had to wave her down, which was hard...More

This is exactly what I'd expect from a bowling alley - friendly staff, bowling and very standard food and drinks. However there was absolutely nothing wrong with our experience here. The food was fresh and tasty, the beer was cool (could have been a bit...More

Bowling is great fun, always. But there were very few people working here. I felt terrible for the poor bartender serving 75+ people all by herself. Hire more people, you're certainly making enough charging folks $15 apiece to bowl!

Jillian aka Lucky Strikes is a cool hangout before going to Fenway Park. Situated in Fenway. It has two floors. Both floors has games and bar. The drinks are reasonable. If you want to bowl it will cost you 11 bucks with a rental shoes...More

We've been here a few times. The first time we came to bowl, but there was a three hour wait. We put our name down and headed downstairs to play pool. The wait for pool was shorter than bowling. We played pool for over an...More

So much fun! Bowling, pool, drinks and pub food! Great way to pregame before a sox game! Dimly lit so let your eyes adjust and then have a ball. I got the soft pretzels and the mac n cheese bites which were great to snack...More

Came with 6 people to bowl. Shoes were pretty clean and in good shape. Bowling balls - not so much. Small selection and pretty much every ball had craters in them - need to be replaced! Beer was good, food just ok at best (for...More

The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but
loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this
home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find
victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical
Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located
within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign
is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the
