I've been bowling at this location several times with my kids. The physical facility is fine- the lanes work and there are lots of flashy lights and other bells and whistles to keep the kids happy. The customer service, however, is so bad that I'm...More

I bowled there for many years then it recently was renovated with new floors and a face lift as well. This location host some big torments and brings in a lot of money for this tiny town of Alameda.

Good quality bowling lanes and decent refreshments. Easy parking. But the crowd can be a bit unpredictable. A couple of years ago there was a shooting outside the back door. It's not inconceivable that a fight can break out inside.

On league night, the crowd can be a bit rough. A couple years ago there was a shooting outside the east door. Nightly there are drunks in the parking lot blasting music and yelling. As for the bowling ally part, it's like any other.
