Bol is a fun concept place: eatery and bowling lanes...in a ski town. The decor is modern and minimalist and would appeal to the inner Scandinavian in us all. The food-LARGE portions. BLT was the size of my daughter's head. Margharita pizza was enough for 2 adults to share. Other entrees were imaginative and well prepared. The kicker- bowling. Fun... More

Stumbled across this restaurant for lunch. Had no idea there was even a bowling alley inside. ..noticed that upon using the restroom which is near it. The food was excellent. After lunch we decided to bowl and it was so fun and sofas to relax and food service available with server if one is interested. Would recommend Bol for food... More

Ate a dinner here because they were the only ones without a major wait. We were presently surprised! The wait staff was pleasant and attentive and the meal was great for a decent price. I would recommend it to anyone in the area. GREAT FOOD!

Really good BLT sandwich and cold beers. Nice service and indoor and outdoor seating. We didn't bowl but the bowling area was high tech and cool. Would recommend for quick lunch. We spent about $30 for two with beers.

My sons loved their wings - nice and crisp with the sauce underneath. Their salads and soups were good too. We did not have a chance to bowl.

Thank you NSHockeyMom, for your review! I love our wings!! The trick is that they are par-cooked confit style then fried to order, which makes them extra crispy and then you decide how saucy you want them. It too bad you didn’t get a chance to bowl, come back again and we’ll make sure to get you a lane for... More

We had a delicious dinner at Bol and the tuna tartare is a must. Could not say enough about the great fun we had bowling after dinner. Comfy lounge area with cocktails and great service.

No one would think that a a restaurant with a bowling ally would serve such food food. I love the beef carpaccio, with truffle vinaigrette, chicken wings are really good, a avocado and chickpea toast was nice and so were the kids burgers. Service is not as good as the food was, but well...I guess you can watch TV and... More

Only had two items so cannot give a comprehensive review but lunch with a BLT and hamburger was a very enjoyable experience. Both were perfectly prepared with locally sourced products. Ale was on special at $6 per glass, making the total lunch tab w tip $40. The interior is beautifully done, by the way.

We liked the restaurant along the bowling alley. Compared to other places, here the restaurant and bar are the main attraction and the bowling is in an adjacent area. This makes it fee like they have better cuisine than regular bowling places with wings and burgers. We just had bowling and drinks. The bowling looks high end. With lounge sofas... More
