  • We’ve lived in Hilliard for 30 years. This was the first time we came in for probably the last 3 years, since it’s been remodeled. The lanes themselves are polished to a light colored gloss. The areas...  more »

  • My family and I love Ten Pin Alley! They have the best most family friendly service, good food and atmosphere. We can't wait till you reopen after the renovations!
  • Not the best bowling alley just to small for big parties and the lanes/ball return arent good. But good just to get some practice in.
  • I am working here right now this place is going to be amazing once it is done
  • Best one in Columbus. They don't do events which keeps the lanes open for constant bowling fun. It's hard to coordinate when public bowl is available at many alleys due to events and leagues. They do have events but it's more come one come all parties with themes and activities for open bowl. Great clean environment and nice staff. There's about twenty lanes or so, not extremely big but big enough. Even has its own drive up to the alley named after the business. Really neat place for friend outings, family events, even work parties. Nice restaurant and stocked bar. Typical pub style food. Fries were tasty, good sodas, and from what I could tell other food looked good.
  • Ten pin alley is the absolute worst bowling alley in the Columbus area. I started going here last summer just with friends and ended up purchasing their summer pass, which is currently 85$, that lets you bowl 1 hour a day for a certain part of the year. It was bad from the start. The employees are the worst employees i've ever encountered in my life. They have the worst attitudes and aren't motivated to do anything except stand at the front desk. They have a sign outside the alley that says "Now hiring self motivated employees" but the people they hire are awful. If you ask for a drink refill or if there is something wrong with your lane, they get the biggest attitudes when you ask for assistance. The lane conditions are just awful. There is about no oil, the ball return takes 30-45 seconds to return your ball, and you'll most likely get put on a lane with a huge screen hanging over it which is very annoying. Then there is huge groups of people there all the time. The parents are in the back drinking while their kids are walking on the actual lane itself. It's absolute chaos, and they are blaring music in this tiny bowling alley on top of that. It's also $25 per hour plus you have to pay shoe rental. There's much cheaper and better centers to go to. I urge you to avoid Ten Pin Alley, it's really the worst option for family fun and/or legitimate bowling.
