“Pretty good - maybe better if we bowled?”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Good news is that there's lots of beers on tap and it's a funky place to just hang and enjoy an evening. Food is decent; servers seemed a bit put out when we asked above moving tables because someone seated next to us reeked of perfume. No deep fryer...this seems like the kind of place that needs fries!

“Bowling, Beer and Broadway”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is a wonderful establishment! You can enjoy their wide variety of craft beers, savor great food from a highly eclectic menu, bowl a few games, AND catch a theater production all in the same day! The service is friendly, competent and upbeat. One day a friend of mine and I spent the entire day and evening there, starting out with a delicious breakfast and a Bloody Mary, then bowled for hours, saw a show and then ended the night with dinner and a bottle of red wine. Bryant Lake Bowl is definitely a unique and really fun place that is sure to please!

“Unique Place with Great Food”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Happy Hour appetizers are great and the beer selection is also very wide. Bartenders are very friendly and informative about the food and drinks. Thye place is unique in that it has a bowling alley and theater on premise.

“Didnt go for the food”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Food is not why people go there, but the food is fine. I saw the incomparably wonderful Claudia Schmidt, telling stories but thankfully with a song or two thrown in for free.
