Nice hangout place with friends

You can eat, bowl, drink, and socialize all in one place! Best for groups of 20 or less. Full bar, bar-type good but good value. Lots of fun.

If you like bowling, you're capable of basic addition, and have a soft spot in your heart for 1970's retro decor (or the Big Lebowski) you will love going bowling at Dust Bowl. Anytime we have adult friends in from out-of-town, we always suggest going here and everyone has a great time. They have a full bar and decent bar... More

We had a nice time at a company bowling party. Good beer, but the food was pretty average and the service was "ok" Still all in all we would go back as we could host a bunch of people.

Have a great evening out bowling or drinking or eating or all three at this loud, lively, downtown place. Loads of fun and another part of the downtown history coming to life in a new way.

The staff were helpful and accommodating while planning my husbands birthday event. We were warmly greeted and given a tour. The waitress was patient and kind. Our only difficulty was sharing a lane with a party much bigger than our own and waiting quite a while for our food and drink orders. We believe the waitress was overwhelmed with multiple... More

Had our niece 21st birthday party there. It was a blast. Nostalgic atmosphere. Great cocktails. Lots of fun for adults only!! Appetizers, not so hot. Eat before you go. Staff excellent.

Been through many times with a youth travel league. Good experience for young bowlers but not as a league house. This is designed for open play, drinking and social bowling. This is great for that crowd, but not for children.

This bowling ally is a real old school place. The lanes are good but you have to right your score on a paper so you need to revive your knowledge of bowling rules and scoring system.

We had a blast there. It is a fun little spot tucked away in down town Tulsa. It took me a second to remember how to score bowling but we had a blast and had a really enjoyable evening. It is a very social setting with a great layout that allows you to participate in bowling, visiting friends, meeting new... More

This is a super cute bowling alley to attend once. It's very small, so getting a lane is the hard part. You definitely should make a reservation if at all possible. The square bar tables are super fun to sit around while waiting on a lane. Be careful where you park, too; I ended up with a ticket that night.
