Great bowling spot for a night out with friends or just as a couple. They have lots of activities during week nights that make the experience a lot more interesting. Check their schedule online before you go as there might be league games which you want to avoid as it takes quite a while to get a lane then.

We enjoyed Zodo's as a family birthday spot. Something for everyone. Yummy pizza and local beer. Summer kids bowl is a fantastic deal.

We love bowling, especially when on vacation as a family. Unfortunately, this place is discourages people who aren't regulars from bowling. The night we went, about a third of the lanes were out of service. We waited for an hour for a lane and got none (other locals were given lanes after we requested one). No food or drink service...

This is such a family friendly place that I highly recommend it to everyone! We went with our grandson and he enjoyed it a lot!

We went there to try something new. It was a terrible experience. The food was average, the drinks watery. Our waitress couldn't even recommend us anything because she didn't know the menu. The whole place was empty, besides the rude staff there was hardly anyone else. The air condition worked well! Never again !

5 teenagers had a ball (sorry for the pun) bowling on a Sunday morning! The staff was helpful and friendly. It's a clean, well managed facility and even though it was packed, due to the rain...everyone seemed to be having a great time. I absolutely recommend it!

Despite what people may think a bowling alley can offer, Zodo's exceeds expectations with food quality and prices. A great place to eat, drink, and watch any sports game. I don't even go to bowl most of the time. Servers are generally good and attentive (especially Truan) and I always leave feeling I got my money's worth. I personally think... More

The food is okay, but the noise and chaos is interminable. This is a joint where you buy tokens to play games to win tickets. You can redeem these for "prizes." Which means you could spend $75 for a 75¢ item. The only respite is to sit on a bench outside. Which I did. Our 9 year old grandson thought... More

Zodo's has a classic feel to it. It's fun but very busy so open lanes might be hard to find. I will definitely return if I am in the area.
