  • Eight of us met at the 6pm Friday evening opening, and we weren't the only ones waiting. The place is immaculate. We brought our own pizza and purchased drinks from Friendly Mike, the bar owner...

  • First time here; went in and the first thing we noticed was how super nice the guy working was (Mike? Matt?) sorry I can’t recall! Next, the place was THE CLEANEST bowling alley we have ever seen...

  • This is a gem of am establishment, oldest in the world, or second I forget...but they've got an awesome juke box, a novelty sport indeed, tournament nights are bustling, cheap delicious drinks, and the venue has left all its past charm untouched, classic features like the ash trays bring you back to a lost time, fun daily cocktail mixes, and great bands play as well! Its got lovely easy going accomodating owners and the location is right on the glacial potholes. Can't go wrong!
  • This is my new favorite bowling alley. Eight lanes makes for a cozy, exclusive experience. Two of us arrived at 4pm on a Saturday and were greeted warmly by the manager Tony, who's a real gent. They charge by the hour, which was enough time for us to play a full, three string game. The actual lanes are fantastic which made for a great roll (you'll probably score above your average, we both did), historic New England feel (the place opened in 1906!), plenty of refreshments and a well-stocked bar. This is the real deal, no frills, no distractions. No pool table, no air hockey, no horrible pizza. Nothing but half-worcesters, spread eagles, deadwood, a glorious candlepin experience. It was totally worth the hours drive for us (plus it's off the beautiful Mohawk Trail). Five stars easy, most highly recommended. Thanks again, Tony!
  • Great hidden gem tucked away behind the main drag. Family friendly atmosphere and lots of star wars touches throughout makes it fun. My son had a blast on his first bowling experience.
  • Candlepin bowling is the funnest thing ever! Great drinks, the nicest people, lots of laughs!
  • Very friendly staff, amazing location, worth going!
