Visited this Bowling Alley for some enjoyment during the deep freeze winter. Had lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The wait staff was very friendly; the food was terrific; the place was clean and well keep; and they poured a nice drink. They even have a limited number of craft beer selections.

This small 8 lane bowling alley was a very nice diversion during some terrible weather, but it turned out to be a fantastic find. I would go definitely back.

What is a vacation without some time spent bowling together. The lanes are a bit older in technology, but the experience is improved because of it. Good food, too. A wonderful time for family laughs and exercise.

This place has excellent service. The pulled pork is wonderful and comes in two varieties. Wonderful burgers cooked to perfection. They are skimpy on the coated fries but there is awesome coleslaw and nice large dill pickle. If you are looking for quick sandwich this place is best in Douglas.

Let me start by saying that this is the most unique bowling alley I have ever been in. It is clean, comfortable and well designed. I will be back, and I am hoping to replace this review with a more favorable one, but I will stick to the simpler bar food items, and not take a chance on their entree offerings because they are inconsistent, and often just plain bad. For instance, my salmon was almost inedible, and I swear the vegetable was canned which I won't even eat at home. I kept trying not to look at the delicious looking burgers at the next table!
I applaud what the owners have done here, and encourage them to find their stride in the kitchen.

You'd never expect to get gourmet food at a bowling alley, but here you do. Treat yourself to a sushi night during the summer, and why not a delicious salmon dinner one night as well! Always friendly and helpful staff make for a great experience.
