Not your average bowling lane

North Bowl is always a really fun time. They have a great atmosphere, bar and the food is good too. The service is top notch. Best place around to do some drinking and bowling.

I have never had a bad experience here. I have been here maybe a little over ten times. The prices are not terrible and it is a fun place to go with friends. I have also celebrated two birthdays here before that were great. Getting a lane does take a long time but if you plan wisely you can get... More

Though the wait is long, the staff is really welcoming and easy going. We stopped by and put our name in and then came back and our lane was ready not long after (about 1.5 hours on a Thursday night) The bowling alley looks awesome as soon as you walk in the doors. It's very modern and nice. There are... More

I really enjoyed myself here. It seems located in Old city. You really don't go to a bowling Alley for food but their Blackend Fish Tacos are the best fish Tacos I have ever had in the City. I highly reccomend. The atomestphese is really like any other bowling alley, the only difference is this has two levels.

We went to North Bowl two weekends in a row and it is by far the best bowling alley I've ever played! The staff is friendly and goes out of their way to make sure you are having a good time. It is clean and the atmosphere is great! The food is solid with interesting food options! The price is... More

Okay so this is my 2nd visit to north bowl. And it's cute and trendy. I really dislike that when I am spending 35 dollars for two people to bowl you still need to take my shoe. But my biggest complaint is the bar. The wine list is super short the liquor list is whiskey. But there is waitress serve.... More

North bowl is a fun place to go with friends for a few drinks, and to bowl a few sets. I've never seen families there, but we have always been here at night. There is also a fun vending machine with crazy stuff like fake mustaches and the like, so when you're really drunk you can dress up.

Great Sunday fun day activity to do after brunch. Sure it's expensive, but you're bowling and drinking....with friends. It's worth it. They also have a four person pac man table and billiards.

This is the type of place you expect to be overrun by hipsters sporting super skinny jeans, exaggerated beards and body piercings outnumbering their tattoos...but it's not. It's a friendly fun and cool place to hang out with awesome food selections on the menu, great drink selections and very reasonable prices and a very fun and young and hip atmosphere.... More

My company had our end of the fiscal year party at North Bowl and we had a blast! The Dj was awesome and the food was really good! Cheeseburger sliders, Mini Chicken cheese steaks, Tator tots, Mac and chesse...everything was delicious! Highly recommended!
