  • Bayside Bowl just got renovated and now it looks sharp. There are two areas downstairs to bowl and hang out. The bar downstairs is also where they host musical events. The space has really opened up there and allows people to enjoy the bar and the music. They have a small mezzanine area which is great for smallish groups. Then there's the rooftop bar which will get a lot of action in a city like Portland. Bayside really made a space everyone can enjoy.
  • There isn't enough I can say about Bayside Bowl. The staff is wonderful. The building is gorgeous. The food is great. The beer selection is always broad but not too broad, and the service on the lanes and for the lanes is superb. Bayside has received a lot of press recently for the new addition, the rooftop bar, and the taco truck - so I won't go into great deal about those, but they're awesome. The cocktail menu is the most un-bowling alley menu I've seen in a bowling alley. Everything on it, that I've tried at least, has been delicious. A couple favorites of mine for food and drink have been the pulled pork sandwich, they had a brisket sandwich for a bit, the mac and cheese, and for drinks, the Pinsetter and the Fixer Elixir (which is spicy, so heads up). As of writing this, the roof bar gets extremely busy if the weather is nice, and doubly so on Fridays. If you are looking to check out the upstairs, I'd recommend getting there right when they open if you can.
  • This place is amazing. My girlfriend and I took a bowling vacation from Pennsylvania and this was the destination stop after seeing it on the professional bowling tour. This place is aesthetically perfect, the drinks were good, the tots were delicious, and the lanes were beautiful. Unfortunately my bowling ball got some scratches and battle scars from something on the lane machine but the owner made it up to me by covering our bar tab and letting us bowl longer. This was a great stop that didn't disappoint and I loved spending our entire evening here.
  • Fun atmosphere and great food! Try the cactus tacos at the rooftop Taco truck, you won't be disapointed.
  • Beautiful facility designed for people who love to bowl! The picture is the view from the mezzanine. There are bars both upstairs and down. Upstairs is designed for comfort with a large screen t.v. for viewing the tournaments. Downstairs is designed for live action and socializing.
