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

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.

A group of three of us had a great time bowling on a Saturday afternoon. The pricing varies depending on when you decide to go, so if you are price sensitive, make sure to call ahead to find out the details. Per game, per person,...More
