You gotta do it

Unfortunately if you want to bowl it's the only place to go in town. However, they are very expensive so bring your credit card.

Wow! I was nervous to go here after reading the previous reviews, but I'm so glad I did! Kegler's was a great date spot, and I imagine would be just as fun with a group of friends. We went on Two Dollar Tuesdays ($2 games, $2 shoes, $2 pbrs lol) and got pretty overwhelmed by the sheer amount of people... More

My family and I recently stayed in Charlottesville to visit family. We were looking for something to do with the kids (10 and 11) and thought bowling would be perfect. They took my card info and said they can just charge my games to it. I wasn't aware that it was going to cost an arm and a leg to... More

When you are planning a first date, this is the perfect place to get to know each other. You can order food and just enjoy the time you have with each other bowling 👌🏼

this place has steady declined over the last 10 years. The lanes are not well kept, causing patrons to stumble and fall (surprised i haven't hear of a big a law suite), the balls are chirped and marred, the lanes frequently don't return the balls. The service, wait I'm mean complete lack of service - these folks are missing out... More

So many excellent memories here. 20 years ago it was all you could drink beer and bowl for $5 on Thursday from 11:30-2:00 am. So, needless to say, my buddies and I became fixtures. Oddly, they had the same phone number as the home I was raised (different area code), and we got endless calls for them when I was... More

Luckily received military discount for 9 of us. Loved the atmosphere. Loved they had many things to do for the kids. Arcade area, with a few different games. Also billiards room. Bathrooms were clean. We ordered about $85 worth of food, food was mundane and nothing special and not worth the cost.

I took a group of my childrens friends to Bowl one night. We had a great time. The Lanes are nice and the staff helpful. The place was very clean and did not smell like smoke. And the shoes looked very new.
