“Best Bowling Alley I have ever bowled!”

North Bowl Lounge n Lanes
Ranked #18 of 57 Fun & Games in Philadelphia
Attraction details
Reviewed January 17, 2016

We went to North Bowl two weekends in a row and it is by far the best bowling alley I've ever played!

The staff is friendly and goes out of their way to make sure you are having a good time. It is clean and the atmosphere is great! The food is solid with interesting food options!

The price is just right! They do not take reservations, so be prepared to wait, however, they do everything they can to accommodate you in a timely fashion.

It is perfect for everyone... families, couples, friends, etc!

I can't say enough about this venue, I hope it never goes away!

Okay so this is my 2nd visit to north bowl. And it's cute and trendy. I really dislike that when I am spending 35 dollars for two people to bowl you still need to take my shoe. But my biggest complaint is the bar. The wine list is super short the liquor list is whiskey. But there is waitress serve. Maybe south bowl will be better.

North bowl is a fun place to go with friends for a few drinks, and to bowl a few sets. I've never seen families there, but we have always been here at night. There is also a fun vending machine with crazy stuff like fake mustaches and the like, so when you're really drunk you can dress up.

Great Sunday fun day activity to do after brunch. Sure it's expensive, but you're bowling and drinking....with friends. It's worth it. They also have a four person pac man table and billiards.

This is the type of place you expect to be overrun by hipsters sporting super skinny jeans, exaggerated beards and body piercings outnumbering their tattoos...but it's not. It's a friendly fun and cool place to hang out with awesome food selections on the menu, great drink selections and very reasonable prices and a very fun and young and hip atmosphere.

Weekends (and during big storms) can get really crowded so they impose a 2 game maximum when there are wait times, but midweek nights usually have a few open lanes you can just walk in and reserve while there's always room at the downstairs bar and game lounge area upstairs.

Clean and organized enough to hold a corporate event but still fun and unique enough to go with friends and not feel like you're in a chain bar like some other bowling alleys...
