I've never bowled before but the environment had me pumped, almost as if I was in a night club :-) The food was also great.

I didn't bowl because my wrist was sore. My wife , son and 2 nieces bowled. I tried to watch, but the couches are facing the bowlers sideways, and you just can't see the lane that well. I noticed that they start the 1 hour...More

Worth every dime! Food was delicious and staff very attentive. Private room and midtown suite really made our Family reunion special. Something for everyone and live music after our event. Get there early or be prepared to park. Great atmosphere

I don't love bowling, so let's just put that out there. I thought the food was just OK. The service was pretty good. The atmosphere is good, I guess. I just don't really get the appeal of this place but many of my friends like...More
