We have been there three times to bowl. They have been always friendly, the place is clean, and they honor Veterans - so, thumbs up for Spare Time Bowling.

This has got to be the nicest bowling alley ever. Cool lights, clean, and finally no SMOKING in bowling alleys! Live music on the weekends brings out a dancing older crowd for fun. Even the bar food is pretty good though limited. A nice night...More

Bowling can be expensive but the after 9pm nights are great. Good deals and the disco bowls on Friday and Saturday nights are fun.
