Got into Kona late and asked the rental car attendant for a good place to eat. He sent us to KBX bowling alley. A hidden secret in Hawaii is that the bowling alleys often have great food so we were all in. The food was awesome. I had beef stew, my family had chicken katsu, saimin, loco moco, and a cheeseburger. The beef stew was different but was ono. The rental car attendant said the loco moco was the best on the island. My daughter, a loco moco connoisseur, agreed...one of the best she's ever had. The burger was thick and flame broiled, same with my son's cheeseburger. Highly recommend. We did not do any of the bowling or arcade. It was a long day and we just picked up our dinner and went back to our hotel.

Not bad of a place to take the family! Had reservations but went a little early, 4 alleys looked open but wasn’t allowed to start until my reservation. Needs some work to the chairs and AC wasn’t as cool as I expected. All in all not such a bad place to take the family!

My daughter turned 7, and wanted to go bowling really bad.
Let's just say we never bowled once she saw the arcade.
We spent about 2 hours playing games on $20 bucks.
She hit the jackpot of 1,000 tickets twice, and got plenty of little gifts at the end when she cashed in her tickets.
Had burgers, and fries from the restaurant inside that were pretty darn good.
We'll definitely make the drive back one weekend.

What ever you do, DO NOT use your card to buy anything at the bar!!!

We went there for a bowling party, and I bought a flirty temple, and a soda for the husband, the bill was 4.75 and i gave them $2 tip. the soda was bad so my husband returned it for a new one. Everything was okay, the girls at the bar were very friendly. No problems at all.

When I went to work the next day, my co-worker told me to check my credit card because they were charged $5 extra for 2 beers. So I looked in mine, nothing out of the ordinary.

But after a day, I was balancing my checkbook, I saw that they also charged me $5!!! My advice, do not use your credit card, bring cash and enjoy!!!

Aloha! The $5 is a standard hold on all bar tabs. It is not an actual charge. Your bank should show it as "pending" though different banks handle it differently. You will not be charged this amount. Depending on your bank, it will release in 1-2 business days. Please let us know if your bank does not release the $5 pending amount by calling us at 808.326.2695 or e-mailing info@kbxtreme.com. We are so sorry that this made your visit less enjoyable and will be looking into it further.

We don't have any bowling alleys here on Maui, so every year when our ward visits the LDS Kona Hawaii Temple, we ALWAYS go bowling. Great value and the service is excellent. The ladies that work the lanes are very professional and patient, even with our huge group of kids, youth, and adults. Very spacious and well kept facility. Always a good time. Aloha

Here in hilo we no longer have a bowling alley, and even when we did, it really wasn't to great, KBXTREME! Omg! Love the games! Bowling was awesome and the lounge feel to it is awesome! Sitting area is perfect! And you gets tickets when you bowl! Bowling price is decent! How cool is that! Bar is awesome! Last time I visited I had ordered a Shirley temple 4.95 which was amazing! And this past June visit I ordered their flirty Shirley for 6.75 I believe and it was awesome! Fruity and cherry but I loved it! Definitely my favorite place to go when I want to play, bowl, and drink!

We had dinner at Chubby's in the bowling alley one night with some friends and their children. The food was really good and the portions are huge. I was very surprised by the variety available. It was definitely the best bowling alley restaurant I have been to. After dinner we visited the arcade. There were lots of machines out of order, but that is apparently not unusual according to our friends who go there a lot. I gather repairs/parts come from the mainland. We didn't bowl, but it looked like a fun place to do it.

We are so glad you had a nice time at the center! You are right about the parts on back order from the mainland. It can be a slow process. We hope you found some games that you enjoyed and we hope to see you again, soon!

My fiance, myself and a friend of ours was bowling at "KBXtreme" and one of the workers goes up to my fiance and starts threating him (what kind of system do they have going on?) Stating that he should do certian things before he shuts off our game! Im sorry we didnt pay for bad service so stop giving it to us. We paid for a unlimited game from 9-1 and we decided to play for the whole 4 hours. This will not be the last time they hear from me!! My name is sarah

Aloha! I am so sorry to hear that you and your fiance had a bad experience. I can assure you that KBXtreme, as Hawaii's Premier Family Entertainment Center, takes great pride in our high ratings and repeat customers, and I will be looking into your problem during the late night unlimited bowling from 9pm-1am for $15. I am a little bit unclear from your review what the issue is, so I will check in with our staff, but please feel free to clarify or e-mail me at info@kbxtreme.com. You may also call and ask for the manager on shift. Hopefully we can resolve your issue and you might consider giving us another try. Mahalo!

KBXtreme has a full service bar & bowling alley, who can beat that. Food and arcades are also available. There was a change in lighting for night bowling (9pm) which showed Spiders & webs...very fun but made it difficult to be accurate. Luckily we were not playing professionally, so it only added to our experience. Bowling charged by the hour, many balls available to borrow. Socks can be purchased (as everyone wears flip flops/slippers on Hawaii). When in Kona again, I'd definitely come back.

Just spent a few hours with my wife and son, we bowled, then my son went in to the video game room that kept him occupied for about an hour. Finished off with dinner at Chubby's Restaurant, food was outstanding. Service is semi-self service, not sure what you would call it, but the staff was very friendly. We ordered our food and it was delivered in about 10 minutes. An excellent break from fast food!
