“Great Beer & Good Food”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

I live local and never visited the Wicked Googly but after reading a couple of reviews here, I thought I would give it a try. Don't let the fact that it is in the bowling alley deter you. They have lots of great beer on tap. Not just the crap - fun stuff like Magic Hat Elder Betty, Curious Traveler, Rudy Redbird, and about 10 more I can't remember. The food is good for bar fare as well. I was more than pleasantly surprised and will visit again for some casual dining and great beer.

“Great food, Great Prices, Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

I was hesitant to try it as it is located with a bowling alley. However, I never heard the noise and was suprised at how good the food was. Its a sports bar but you can still get a great steak there. The alcohol is reasonably priced and there is no cover to hear the band. The best kept secret is their amazing breakfast.

“Good choice for some fun!”
Reviewed May 10, 2012

This is a unique place with a variation of specialty draft beers, great drinks, live entertainment, and a range of good food. Service is always friendly, and polite! Good for family, or great for an evening out!

“Great food and craft beer”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

Spent five days in Ligonier. This is by far the best over all place to eat and drink in Ligonier. The food was a mixture of standard bar food as well as classic dinner selections. I had a great New York Strip steak one daya and a great Italian sanwhich another. The portions are big and the prices faie. Atmosphere is ok. This is not a take your mom for mothers day or get ingaged kind of place. Its bup like/sports bar.
The service was good. MJ and Chrissy were very friendly and quick. Kitchen was slower one night but they seemed slammed. It still only took 25 minutes for my food. All the staff was good.
Bartenders did well despite some very crowded times during the band I saw.
The beer selection was out of site. Dogfish 120 on tap when I was there! It was a little difficult to figure out what was on tap without asking though.
I did not bowl although it was quite busy once the band started playing. This seemed to be the happening place when I was in town. Good mixture of younger and older crowd. This place seemed to have a little bit of everything. Fun place.
