  • This is the 4th Birthday party I’ve held here. The staff is great, especially Yolanda and Andrew. The Coasters bar and grill has everything from salads to pizza and sandwiches, and even Marianne’s ice...  more »

  • You are at a popular boardwalk and there are a lot of kids so don’t think you’ll get a real game of bowling in. You probably already knew that though. If you were a serious bowler, you’d go to your lo...  more »
  • Boardwalk Bowl Eats is the small food stand in the bowling alley. It used to be great., but now the team working there sucks. I ordered a burg combo and tuna melt combo (and in this case combo doesn’t include drinks) and swiped my credit card ford the $22 + dollars. I immediately received a text alert that the transaction amount was deducted from my account. The cashier insists that it didn’t go through and the manager was called. She was rude and told me I’d have to pay again and deal with a refund the next day. I opted not to spend $45 on burgers and fries ( no drinks) and long story short instead of accepting their mistake and satisfying their customer, she called security! What a joke! I had to dispute the charges w my cc company. Thanks for nothing BB Eats. You suck.
  • Call before you go to see what the waitlist is like as they don't take bookings. Took us a couple of tries to get in and get a lane on the weekend, but once we did it was all good! Shoes were clean and not stinky at all, plus there was an excellent range of different balls available to select from. Had a blast!
  • This is a very family friendly place plus it is across the street from the Boardwalk. It can get busy, but the staff do a great job getting you on a lane as soon as it opens. There is also a snack shop inside where you can get everything from breakfast to pizza to sandwiches.
  • Only place to bowl in Santa Cruz! Something for everyone to enjoy. It's a clean, well maintained bowling alley, they have a small arcade in one room, and a bar attached at the opposite end of the building. They do business parties, as well as children's parties, bowling league's, and movie nights. On the movie nights, you can rent a lane for the duration of the movie, and bowl as many games as you fit in! Around the holidays they have a program called Strike Out for Hunger, which is a free game of bowling, if you bring in a can of food(shoe rental not incl.) Fun for the whole family!
  • Excellent service!! We held our daughters 7th birthday party here and she loved it, so we loved it. Yolanda, our hostess was awesome, she was on top of things, and was very knowledgeable. Thank you!
