Stopped in yesterday after bowling. The restaurant wasn't that busy but service was very slow. Not only did we have to wait a while to order; we also waited for our food, and longer still before receiving our check. I'd seen the fresh dough pizza, which looked great. After we ordered we were told they were out of fresh dough... More

A little pricey for what you get , The food is so-so It takes a while. Even if there are several cooks .. French fries are okay and over priced burgers are okay

Pretty much bowling alley food, Very convenient when taking the kids bowling, and kids would like the food; but this is definitely not a destination restaurant.

Okay, the restaurant is attached to a bowling alley, so I, honestly, didn't expect much. I was simply hungry for a late lunch and this was on our way (sort of) from the airport to our hotel. The waiter did ask us if we wanted popcorn while we waited for our food, but then forgot to bring it. After asking... More

The food is good. Service is Great. Small but so comfortable and friendly. The menu has a lot to offer any pallet. The Drinks are to perfection. Attached to a bowling alley and a skating rink in the same parking lot. Plenty of parking. You need to try this place.

I got honey bbq wings and they were awesome. The burrito I got was ok. The rice was not inside the burrito. Overall the portions were huge and I would return next year when I'm here in hallowell.
