Last Friday we had a team bonding day and in the afternoon bowled at Lucky Strike. The staff was incredibly friendly and attentive. The appetizers and drinks were good, but best of all the bowling was... read more »
We were trying to find a way to kill a little time while we waited on our hotel room to be ready. We had a good time- bowling, ping pong, pool and a assortment of oversized board games are available. ... read more »
Part of the bowling alley trend that seems to have come and gone -- OK for a quiet lunch -- yes quiet lunch in a bowling alley as it is usually empty -- food is not horrible just not that good
Our server came out and was great, said it was an extra 1.50 for any double. So I told him I'd get a double shot of any dark rum in an Arnold Palmer. A buddy of mine got a sprite/Sierra mist. The guy came back out then said they had kraken, captain, or something else, so I took it with captain. He came back with drinks and water. 10 or so minutes later he came back with two more sierra mists and asked if I wanted another drink. We were ready to go, so he said he could just take cash and come back with the check/change. I gave him a $10, my buddy, a $5. We waited for another 10-15 minutes before we absolutely decided we were going to leave. My friends were in the bathroom and I went up and asked what the total was, and if he was going to give us the check. He said, "well, are you going to tip me?" And I said yes. I was supposed to get 70¢ back and my friend $1.30. Due to his arrogance in just taking our change and keeping it for a tip my friends and I decided to take it all back. So here's a tip, if you want a cash tip, don't leave your customers out when you say you'll be back with change and the bill, then just take said change and assume it's a tip. I can guarantee you would have gotten a $5 if you would have been back, like you said you were going to be. Getting the change back was actually sort of enjoyable, watching our server roll his eyes and sigh multiple times. Breaking the bills back down and him handing me 70¢ made me appreciate, even more, the principle of the matter, seeing how he had none. Principle- a fundamental truth or proposition that serves as the foundation for a system of belief or behavior or for a chain of reasoning. Also, I've noticed this more and more, with multiple establishments. Generally young bartenders that are about to give a dollar plus in change will be like, "did you want that back?" I've seen this with more than one dollar on one drink, to customers aside from myself. From now on I'm taking it back, and advocating for people to take it back, every time. Being rude to a customer will always get you a lesser tip.
Lucky Strike pulled a bait and switch on my and I figured I would let you all know so it doesn't happen to you. Here is the story .. Tried to go bowling with a coworker about 4 weeks ago, but when we arrived at 5pm, we were told there would be a 45 minute wait. We saw a sign that said, $2 games on Tuesdays. It being a Wednesday, we decided to shoot some pool and come back in a couple of weeks, on a Tuesday, to get the deal. 2 weeks later, I tried to book it out online as well as over the phone a couple of hours before we were to go. I was told that the reservation system has to be used more than 3 hrs ahead of time, and that only walk-ins were available. The wait time was expected to be 1.5hrs. We decided to postpone again. This week we were unable to get any time slot we wanted, but did manage to get a reservation for 8:30pm, by booking through the website. I was asked to fill out a form, which included a credit card and a lengthy Terms & Condition section. I was charged $24.50 for the reservation. Since it was a Tuesday, I assumed we would get that back, if we showed up, and then could bowl for $2 per game. Boy was I wrong. We dropped by to see what the deal was, and as it turned out. They wanted us to pay full price, since we reserved the lane for an hour, as opposed to waiting for the open lanes to bowl for $2 per game. Not only that, but the $24.50 was only half of the hourly price of $45, plus a $2 booking fee. In order to bowl for the hour, we would need to pay an additional $22.50, plus $4 each for shoes. So what should have amounted to $20 (3 games @ $2 each and shoe rental) turned out to be a whopping total of $55 for 1 hr. Since we were there several hours early we explained this to the bowling attendant/cashier. He seemed very sympathetic and said that he would just ring up his manager and get us a refund. Unfortunately the call to his manager lasted about 6 seconds and he informed us that the $22.50 was non-refundable. We left, and did not return. $22.50 down the drain for all my trouble. Other things you should know. They only keep a couple of lanes for walk-ins, and the vast majority are for hourly rental by reservation. Both times we were there, there were only 2-3 of the lanes being used while there was a long waiting list. I hope this helps some of you out there to avoid the kind of disappointment we suffered.
wanted to go for a pleasant bowling experience on new years days. This is the only true bowling alley within the downtown area. We were extremely disappointed! They seemed like they made no effort in planning for the amount of people who would likely come in on new years day. This place could have made a killing but the service was deplorable. When we arrived, they said it was going to be a 1.5 to 2 hour wait, but it wasn't overwhelmingly crowded. We decided to play pool while we waited for a lane and our first negative experience was that the service was so slow in the pool area. Had to go over the bar several times to order drinks and food. When we finally got our lane the service continued to be slow even though it was a different server. Also, it is INCREDIBLY expensive, $85 for three people to bowl and play pool. This did not include any drinks or food, which was mediocre at best. The price was completely ridiculous for the service that was provided and the fact that it's still just a bowling alley. Nothing extra or above and beyond. Also the TV projector was so bright on the lanes that it made it hard to see. Would never go here again, the people who worked there seemed miserable and the prices were outrageous.
Fancy decorations, food is decent. Room for kids to run around
Too expensive and not very nice...
