Great time!

Our party of six decided to go bowling while on vacation, and it proved to be a great time! It seemed a little odd to pay for bowling by the hour rather than by the game, but... read more

The food Burgers and Fries are great but the crab claws are absurdly expensive also go on a non-league night because if there are leagues playing you are a second-class citizen the food is fantastic like an old fashioned soda shop in the pool tables are clean and enjoyable

This restaurant is usually our favorite in the area for a quick bite while visiting family. However, over christmas holidays we were disappointed. Cold sandwiches and wraps were good. Seafood dishes were greasy and disappointing.

Definitely recommend this bowling alley. Facilities are clean, employees are very helpful and accomodating and quick to correct any lane issues to keep the tournament flowing. I'm looking forward to next year.

It seemed a little odd to pay for bowling by the hour rather than by the game, but from a business perspective it probably makes sense. The place offered lots to do in addition to bowling, and we plan to go... More

Gulf Bowl is a fun getaway for the entire family. It's clean, well staffed with bowling, restaurant/grill, arcade and laser tag. If you are at the beach and it's raining, this is a good place to take the family. Local papers have discount coupons but the hour rate for bowling is the best deal.

There is a lot to do to drop some calories, bowling, video games, because the servings of food are always ample here. A favorite are the ranch fries, Thick cut potatoes served with ranch dressing. Big, fresh made burgers, po boys of shrimp or oysters, and many other selections are quite tasty.

Our family was there on Thursday for the Summer Deal. $19.99pp for an hour of bowling with shoes included, unlimited laser tag, and a $10 arcade card. Our teens had a blast and my husband and I enjoyed a nice, leisurely meal together. The place is clean and welcoming. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Went on a Friday evening for a friends 62nd birthday with a few other friends (6 total.) An hour of bowling was $50 with shoes. Nice lanes, automated scoring, wide range of alley balls, clean shoes. Not too crowded on the lanes. 16 beers on draft. "Captain's Choice" restaurant is a place for a burger...get the potato planks...skip the fries.... More

It is a fun place to stop but for 5 people for 1 hour the cost to bowl was over $38.00. It was way to much. They do have other games for kids to play and win prizes.
