This quaint little establishment has kept it's original style. Nothing new, but it has its charms. Hot food is served at the grill, a small arcade room, and a juke box hangs on the wall ready for a selection of tunes to be chosen.

A couple of games with the family was made fun due to the attention and service that was provided by the staff. An older setting, but everything worked and we felt well taken care of.

Bowled 2 games between 5 of us. Lanes are decent and its cheap. Has food and beer available for purchase. Usually busy during weekends, so get there early or expect a wait

This place is stuck in a weird place between very cool and kinda disgusting. Very cool because it is kind of like a trip back to the 70s, but it comes with all of the grime, smoke residue, and sweat of all of those years....More

It's definitely a fun place!! The workers at the counter can sometimes come off agitated but I would too if I got told for the 500th time that day that the pin got stuck! Monday's are awesome cause it's only $1 and $4 for shoes...More

A huge banner out front reads, "Now smoke free". That would have helped this place many, MANY, years ago, but the damage is done. This place looks like it's straight from @ 1977. That's not a bad thing, except it's seen some rough years since...More

I love getting burgers at Sunset because they are always served with a smile and are always freshly made to order and delicious. These are classic burger that are served with crisp fries or hot tater tots. Always add the season salt to the burger...More

I took two of the grandchildren bowling during Spring Break. Bowling is good--not weather dependent--as our weather is absolutely crazy from day to day! I didn't know the prices had gone up--3 people, two games + shoes = $31. Specials, I learned, were from 9...More
