we saw the SYSCO truck pull up. Decor was nice, bowling was fancy with large-screen tv's over the lanes, we've never bowled there. Food was so-so, nothing you couldn't get at a fast food place. But it's all fanci-fied. Even the Park City folks we know won't go there to bowl as it may be the most expensive bowling in the West, at least. The bowlers go to less expensive lanes. So eating there, or having a party there, is not on our list of things to do.

I bought a Groupon to Jupiter Bowl and had a horrible experience. The Groupon included 2 hours of bowling and shoe rental for 6 people, a pizza and pitcher of soft drinks. My husband and I and two other couples made our plans for the evening, we had to travel about 40 minutes to get there. We are not kids, we are three local couples ranging in age from 40 to 60. We called the day before to reserve our lane and were told "reservations are for advance payments only." We pointed out that we had purchased a groupon (paid in full), but were still refused a reservation and told " You'll be fine, you should be able to get a lane right away when you come in." When we got there the next night, we found that there was a 2 1/2 hour wait for a bowling lane. We were not willing to wait that long because it was a week night, so my husband asked to speak with a manager. My husband is a very civil and reasonable person. The manager was completely unsympathetic and became immediately defensive and told us "some of these people have been waiting for 4 hours, do you think it would be fair for me just to put you ahead of them?" My husband said that he didn't want that, but he did feel that he was mislead by the staff on the phone the day before. The manager offered nothing to compensate our inconvenience. My husband then asked if we could get a refund and the manger said we needed to take it up with Groupon. So my husband asked if we could at least get our pizza and soft drinks and was told yes. Then he said, "I just want you to know that we have 6 local people who are disappointed and upset about their experience here, and none of us will come back here or recommend you to our friends. The manager then raised his voice and said "If you are going to be difficult and make threats at me, then I will not serve you." He then told us to leave and to contact Groupon.

Needless to say, we will not return to Jupiter Bowl and highly discourage patronage of a business that conducts itself in this manner. They need to change their reservation policy and their attitude toward customers. Obviously and curiously, there are plenty of people out there willing to wait 4 hours for a bowling lane, but I have better things to do.

Jupiter bowl was so fun! We rented a private lane in the private room for about 2 hrs. It was about $90 w 3 pairs of bowling shoes. It was worth it bc we are not good bowlers and it was nice not to be watched by everyone else. We had a great time. It is the nicest bowling alley I've ever seen! We had some apps, drinks and had enough time to bowl for about 4 games. After we move to the bar for dinner. Unfortunatly, although the bartender was very nice he gave poor service. All around though it was a great place. Drinks were good, food pretty good, service pretty good, our waitress was great. Also we didn't do any of this but there were pool tables and a small arcade. It isn't the biggest alley but it was so nice! Kind of expensive but still worth it!
