For a birthday party on a Friday night, I decided to book 2 lanes in advance to make sure there would be lanes for us. It cost me almost 300 dollars to put a deposit on the lanes for 2 games. When I found out that several people were unable to attend, I called to cancel the reservation 3 days... More

My family went bowling at Gateway Lanes on Saturday, April 8 in the afternoon. Our expectations weren't particularly high - it is a bowling lane, after all - but we were still quite disappointed. Other than the bowling shoes (which appeared in excellent condition), our experience was poor. The pin sensor in our lane (#34) was not working so we... More

As you were told multiple times, if you went to the police and asked them to ask us we would release the footage to them, We are not going to release video of every car and licence plate in our parking lot to some random guy who asks for it. Secondly, again as you were told many times There was... More

I've tried to go to this place a few times when I visited my family and every time I've had a bad experience. The food is bland, and over priced. The drinks are over priced and our pitcher smelled like vomit. I picked up pool balls to play pool and the bar tender who I'm assuming thought I was drunk... More

We came in to bowl and didnt realize that there was a full service restaurant so we decided to eat first. We ordered something called Specarouse to start and it was fantastic! Seasoned beef and bacon in a fresh baked bun, it was delicious. Then we had the Meat Lovers pizza, sauce and cheese were in the right amount and... More

I went with my 3 kids (all toddlers). The service was so-so. They were nice enough, but certainly didn't go out of their way to make it a memorable first-time bowling experience for my little ones. We chose not to order food as the prices are expensive and the wait time for food (based on a previous experience) is very... More

Cool place, bowling, arcade, pool tables. Pretty clean place, enjoyed the arcade although the old school pinball machines were relegated to a dark area in the hallway. Played a couple games of pool, everything reasonably priced. Not sure why tripadvisor has it listed under restaurants.

This used to be a fun place to go. Now the benches where you sit to put on your bowling shoes are in such tatters that I refused to let my kids sit on them for fear they might fall through the material. The tables were sticky, the bowling balls were sticky- there was a used tampon on the floor... More

Its no wonder the other reviews Re negative. This place has horrible service. No proper uniforms, or presentation of staff. Poor attitude. The building and facilities are very good. Bowling, lazer tag, billiards and darts. Its too bad the service isnt there to support it. Needs good leadership and hospitality training for staff.
