Hanover Lanes has been around for a long time. It is your no frills bowling arena. I have my kids' birthday party here, and it is very easy to do. The staff is friendly, and kids always have fun.

I went here recently with a group of six. The place sad and outdated. I don't require a trendy place for bowling, but the staff was very unenthused to be there, and very vague in the pricing. When we were done, they doubled the price on us.

I had a kid birthday party yesterday in this place with 30+ kids. They were not prepared for the party. Some examples are: the guardrails of the lanes were not up, so the balls keep getting stuck on the laterals. The fruit plate that I had asked for the day before was not delivered. The party room did not have... More

Eventhough the place is a bit dated, it is all about having fun. Shoes are about $3 each and the games were $5.75 per person per game, pretty resonable. A lot of kids birthday parties and they seem to be having a blast. The staff is a bit stiff but helpful. They offer food, the pizza looked a bit scary... More

I have been to this bowling alley for New Year's Eve for several years. The group rate is good--yes, it does go up every year. It's not the classiest crowd but that's half the fun. The extra sandwiches, salads, soft drinks and party favors are plentiful. It would be nice to have a veggie sandwich or fruit option. Yes, there... More

I've come here ever since I was a little kid, and I still do for my weekly bowling leagues. The place is well-maintained. Machinery hardly ever breaks down, and when it does, it's fixed in under 5 minutes! The staff are very kind and helpful to you. The food here is good. Menu options include personal cheese pizzas and chicken... More

As much as I loved to bowl at the Hanover Lanes, I find the prices more than I really want to pay. They really should've offer a special senior rate for us seniors.

This was a great place to bowl. Their food is excellent for a typical bowling venue. They also have a full bar. Very large interior with lots of space. Great music. Shoes in good condition.

Bowling is always a fun activity, whether it's with family or friends. As long as you don't overdo it. This bowling center is located in East Hanover on Route 10 East, not too far from Ridgedale Avenue. I used to go here more often as a young man. I even started a team that bowled in one of the leagues... More
