I have been coming to Bowler City for over twenty-five (25) years. I would say that some of the staff is polite, whereas other staff members I did not care for too much. I think that the facilities are nice, and one can get food...and drinks here. The parking lot is average sized. There are time one must wait for a lane when it gets busy. There are also birthday parties and games here.More

Very run down with a disrespectful staff. Everything from bowling to food is extremely expensive. If you want to enjoy bowling go to Brunswick Lanes in Fairlawn

This is a great spot to just relax and feel like a kid again. 50 Lanes!! It's awesome and the retro vibe very cool. They have open bowling times and late night (9pm-2 am) for us Night Owls. Yes, there's a bar & grill too,...great prices. We had a blast.More

What made my visit to Hackensack pleasant was spending time with my family and having a place to share a fun memory. The restaurant staff was very helpful, although they could not honor a family meal deal that I was told it was a mistake...and the manager refused, my cashier (James) did his best to serve above and beyond to make it right and he did! I hope management appreciates this guy because I sure did! The bowling was bowling but the food was great!More

Good for families. Decent prices. A little rundown but still reasonable. Something fun to do on a lazy Sunday. Also a neat little arcade

I pass the parking all the time since I live only approximately 2 miles from this bowling alley and the parking lot is always full. This is the best recommendation any business could earn

After his first experience bowling in Queens, NY, my 5 y/o wanted to go again soon so we bought Groupon for bowling in Hackensack, closeby where his grandma lives. We did get a chance to immediately use the Groupon (about $30 for two hours for...up to 5 people) but a few weeks later we did. I believe you have a few months before it expires. We went there on a Saturday afternoon about 3 pm. The parking lot was pretty big and had quite a few spaces available for 3pm on a Saturday. There were a lot of people in the alley but not overcrowded by any means. The counter people were very nice. They had no problem accepting the Groupon and set us up by asking for our shoe sizes. I do like that the shoes were the Velcro type and not the laces as it is a lot easier to put on and take off, especially for the little ones. We were asked if we wanted a lane in the normally lit area or toward the darker end with the track colored lighting. We chose the darker end as the lights seemed pretty cool. The name-entering equipment seemed pretty old, as with most bowling alleys I've experienced, but got the job done. Lots of balls available at each station but you'll have to do some hunting to get the 8 and 6 balls. I saw lots of 12s and 14s. It would have been nice if the ball sizes/numbers were better organized, but it was 3pm and I would imagine throughout the course of the day that they would get mixed up anyway. Bowling was great. You can either have bumpers up or down, and not split up having the bumpers up for some players during a game while having them down for others in the same game. A worker, manually comes over to put the bumpers up and down as you request them. So you have to decide whether you want them up or down for the entire game. The workers were great. We had a few balls/pins stuck/out of place and workers were there within minutes to fix/clear the lane. There is a bar area that serves alcohol/beer as well as a food area which serves basic stuff like hot dogs, fries, pizza, wings etc... I added a photo of the menu in the photos section. You can also get drinks there but there are vending machines scattered along the backside of the alley selling snacks and drinks. Water in the machines were $1.50 and Gatorade was $2.50, not the cheapest but a helluva lot better than Movie theater prices. There was also a game room in the back which was pretty big. They had a change machine along with a good assortment of games including racing, basketball, guitar hero, fruit ninja and others. I thought it was a nice addition to keep the little ones (and adults) occupied in case they got bored or wanted something different other than bowling. We were able to bowl 4 and a half games with the three of us in the two hours that we were allowed with the Groupon. An overall great time. I would love to go back again.More
