Second time tonight we visited this week. Nice place to have a family fun night... of all ages! The first night we bowled and ate there. Pizza are huge! Downside is the pizza doesn't contain much topping. Had the family size Hawaiian pizza and there was probably 8 sliver of pineapple, few ham, and NO bacon. How can a Hawaiian pizza not contain bacon??? Nachos were good, but topping again and guacamole is scarce, so ate plain chips afterwards. Waitress today told us that 2 lbs of chicken wings might contain only 11 pieces of wings depends on how they're measured it in their kitchen. Of course, she was wrong. All in all, this place would have scored a 5 star if without the food. But that's to be expected at a place like this. Place was clean and had a lot of options to do. Will suggest to eat dinner somewhere else and just come play here afterwards...

Not only is this a fun place to bowl, the restaurant is not your average bowling alley restaurant. There is a great variety and the food is good. They have a nice variety of salads to include a salmon salad. Most definitely a place for the whole familly.

So it is a nice bowling alley. But for what they charge it is just not worth it. Too many kids running all over without supervision, too long to wait for service, way too much money for bowling.

This is an enjoyable place to bowl. It is clean and well lit. The black light bowling is cool.The staff are friendly and helpful. The arcade games are fun and plentiful.The down side is that the food concessions need updating. (suggestion: Flying Elephant ).

We always come here when the kids are home from college. good family activity. When they were smaller the bar area was a great place for mom and dad to hang out while the kids played in the arcade. Have never eaten in the main dining area, but have had a drink and watched some sports.So few places to go with the family other than a movie, so glad this a close by option.
