In Georgetown, other than the chain establishments, Mel's is one of the few places you can go and have a drink in a comfortable place. It is by no means a 'quiet, comfortable place' as it is a bowling alley after all....but after a minute or two, I just turn that off. They have a pretty good menu for a bowling alley and what I have tried is good. Try the fried jalepanos.

The staff in BJ's is very good, though a bit short handed at times in mid day to early afternoon but that is understandable.

This appears to be a very well managed, very busy place, successful place. Unless the sound of people having fun bothers you, you should enjoy Mel's.

Best family entertainment in Georgetown!

Exemplary customer service from regular folks (not those bowling counter control freak dweebs of years gone by), food's pretty good as bowling alleys go (try the pizza), and the alleys and pit areas have been thoughtfully planned out, are clean, inviting, well lit and best of all, smoke free. Sports TV is broadcast between bowling score screens for those that don't want to miss the game.

The BEST deal for us is the Sunday Special before 1 pm: 1 1/2 hours of bowling and four shoe rentals will only set you back 25 clams. If you want to bowl longer, it's a reasonable $5.50 for every 15 minutes thereafter.

Keep up the GREAT work Mel's!!! We'll be back again soon!

Mels is great. They have done an excellent job of making it fun for everyone. There is the standard bowling experience and then there is lounge bowling experience. Both are a blast. The equipment runs the game for you - all you have to do is roll the ball. Great assortment of balls to choose from. Drinks are very good and food is average - just what you would expect.

Mel's is not your stereotypical bowling alley. There are lots of well lit lanes. it's fun and family friendly. It's clean. And the food is GOOD. There is a separate sports bar area (CJ's) with bowling lanes, pool tables, multiple screens for watching sporting events, and good food and drink options. CJ's is for adults only after a certain time in the evening.
