Bowlmor offers a fun family activity for cold or rainy days. It can be a bit expensive so I recommend going at off-peak times.

The bowling is mediocre, everything is slimy and very overpriced. I didn't know that bowling with three people cost over $120. Also, their milkshakes tasted good, but after one sip you were done because it was 90% whipped creme. I would recommend everyone that has...More

The Bowl or Lanes located near River Road is a great place to take your teens for an afternoon of raucous fun. Neon and black lights create a fun atmosphere for all. Good snack bar. Call for lane availability as this place is always busy.

I'd recommend going later at night on the weekends if you're an older group there to drink and play. We had to share space with little kids and teenagers, which ended up being just fine! Everyone was friendly, it just meant coordinating turns between three...More

Our daughter and her guests had a great time bowling and enjoying plenty of pizza and very good chicken tenders.

Good facility with very nice private party rooms. Very good staff. The food is bar food with lots of breeding and salt, but it is ok.
