Came here with a group of about 30 for a charity event. We had a blast. It was like stepping back in time to 1970’s.

Have used this Bowl America for several B-Day parities for my kids. Basic grille food and services where unfortunately they are sometimes understaffed. If you are the kind that spends $500 a B-Day party and everything is done for you ... this is not the...More

Second visit and always the same. So much potential but just so poorly managed and understaffed. The line for food or drinks, 20 - 30 min all Saturday afternoon because they only have one cashier. They could do twice the business in concessions but don’t...More

It's a bowling alley - a bit old but brings a sort of nostalgic feel to it. What has me giving 2 stars is the customer service. It's horrible. Like one reviewer said, it feels that everyone that works there, seriously hates being there. Every...More

This was my third (and last) negative experience here. I came at 11am on a Saturday morning with my spouse and 3 young kids. We asked for 2 lanes and were told that it was "too busy" and they would only give us one lane....More

We've been going sporadically for years, but only because it's the only bowling option within shouting distance. The place is clean, but the service is mediocre, the food ho-ho hum, the scoring system outdated, and the balls ancient. No complaints about the shoes, however.

Went here for a company event. This place is seeing it's age. Was not anything spectacular. Old scoring system. Plenty of different weight balls. Shoes had new heels that actually made it more difficult to slide. Customer service was average if not below. Catering staff...More

It's like I'm a kid again. They have some fancy craft beers and of course the basics. Come early on peak nights! It's all you can bowl on Thursday nights so take advantage.

Its old school bowling at its best. The beer is cold, the food is greasy, the fries are hot and the lanes are fast. If you love to bowl in the tradition, no curated menu, specialty r drinks or IPAs - this is the place......More
