We had 90-some people for a bowling party and it was fun. This old 8-lane wooden bowling alley is straight out of the 50s. Don't expect jazzy digital scoring, etc. We used...a PENCIL and PAPER! Fun times and the food was good. Pulled pork, loaded...More

Had one of the "early bird special" breakfasts this morning. Great value - very flavorful pork sausage. Attentive service. Strong coffee. The seating can be a little tight - but overall a good experience.

Went here on a Friday night to go bowling with a buddy. Waited around for about 20 minutes and couldn't get a lane. Ended up having to go somewhere else.

I have been here a few times now and have not once had good service. To make it worse, the food is not particularly good either. I wont ever return.

A cool Minneapolis tradition for those who appreciate good food and bowling night. Local folks enjoying a beer and casual dining pack the place and make it really fun.
