  • Fun atmosphere and good place to take the family. Loud... but every bowling alley is. Roomy and family friendly with plenty of lanes and video games upstairs. Came here with work colleagues before and...  more »
  • This was a great way to spend the day as a family. Food was good. It can be costly but we had a specific plan for our day and didn't spend too much.  more »
  • We decided to take our girls on a day date, they had the best deal for bowling and games. We did 2 games of bowling, order an appetizer of tots, chicken strips, cheese sticks and mini corndogs. I don'...  more »

  • Service was A+ Ryan was so helpful with our group. Food was nice. Interaction with lanes (names, groups, new games, etc...) was flawless. The interior was very nice! Live the wood. Only complaint, bar closing at 8:30p on Monday, I'm from Vegas though haha!
  • My friends and I have heard nothing but good things about this place so we were eager to try it out. We showed up and paid for two rounds of bowling. Our game was shut off half way through the second round so we go up to the counter to see what happened. The staff was SO disrespectful and arrogant (especially the manager). They didn't want to hear anything we had to say and called us liars. Worst customer service I have EVER experienced. The manager was named Nicole Mills and she was the rudest and most disrespectful person I have ever had the misfortune of coming into contact with. The little blonde boy working the front counter was extremely rude too. Do not waste your money on this place. Go to Westy's. At least there you will be treated with basic human dignity.
  • Bowling is fun. Fun games. Great staff. Most of the time we can see most BSU football games. A little bit pricy.
  • Visiting from OC California. We met the Sasquatch today and decided to check this place out. We had a great time. Everyone was so nice.
  • Arrived for bowling only shortly before night bowling, not knowing that the price of $5.50 a game was going to be $10 for unlimited bowling shortly after, employee wasn't kind enough to mention that for people wanting to save money or have a better time with crazy fun lights. Happy hour signs are everywhere mentioning 2-6 & 9-close. They don't mention that 9-close is only for drinks & not appatizers that are normally half off from 2-6pm. VERY misleading, causing you to break the bank even more. The arcade which I've been to before, and have had a great experience with in the past, now has gotten rid of all of their coin games, which are my personal favorites making the arcade not fun for me anylonger. Which probably isn't much of a bummer for anyone else but for me it was the cherry on top of it all. Worst date ever. P.S. Mac & Jack Bites are gross.
