Very rude. I called last year and the person on the phone was rude so I didn't go then. Even when calling, prior to going recently, I felt my business wasn't respected and it seemed as though I was being discouraged from coming. I thought we would give this place a chance anyway and maybe my perception was off. After... More

This is an "old school" bowling alley with a few modern upgrades like electronic score keeping. The shoes and balls are old! The place is like a zoo with kids running amok and people lofting the balls and generally doing as they please. It was difficult to focus because of the rowdiness but when the kids in the lanes around... More

Seems to need better management every time I have been there. This time I went to their web site to print a coupon, check hours etc. Drive all the way there with my kids only to find signs on the door "Closed for private party". At least give your regular customers the courtesy to post online that you are closed... More

Love going here for bowling and the bar! Neat little bar tucked away with pool tables, juke boxes, and your own personal bartender! What could be bad about that. Nothing fancy but really cool retro feel, not on purpose, laid back place to go and chill and play~

Classic 70's bowling. Looks like nothing has been changed since it opened, but I am okay with it. Kids love the cosmic bowling. The food isn't bad for a bowling alley.

Nice local, small bowling alley that honors Kids Bowl Free for the summer. Food was good. They could use some upgrades for the scoring mechanisms and if they charge the $2 for the kids ball ramps, they should invest in some new ones. The ones they have are old and unbalanced. Actually, I've never been to a bowling alley that... More
