This is candlepin bowling as it is supposed to be. Wish it had a little more space but the staff is friendly, the pricing is good and you can actually pick up the ball because this is candlepin and not ten pin. great for kids and they do a great kids party. Bowling leagues almost every night so if you are looking to join one, call. There are stairs so not handicap friendly.

Very old... my shoes had huge holes. But it was still fun. We played for an hour which turned out to be three games and it was $27. Definitely a great spot for kids.

Remember bowling of your youth? You can find it here with balls you can grasp on to. Kids love it - cages on alleys keep the balls in the lane. Great family fun. A bit dark. Friendly staff.

Bowling is what it is and places like King's where you get speed of throw and suggestions for shots etc are certainly more high end but are way more expensive and much further away. For us in the Needham/Wellesley Hills area this place is great - our kids ask to go in every time we drive past. It is simple but especially for kids its great.

The only bowling alley in the area happens to be a great one, although it's a little old/run down. It's candlepin bowling and makes for a fun time no matter what time of day/year. They close early sometimes so be sure to check their facebook page to make sure that they're open. I've made the mistake a couple times.
