They recently remodeled place and altho it LOOKS nice, the same horrific food is still in place. We came as a small group and the 2 lane rental comes with a selection of chicken wings, slider, soft pretzels, 2 taco meats and all accompanying toppings and while the chicken wings were kinda good, the rest of the food was STONE...

My Overall Experience was ok. We purchased a pass for every attraction instead of games(wasn't told about the deal). We bowled about an hr and a half, then our game was shut off and we were told that he thought we would more comfortable away from the family next to us? That was weird cause we didn't complain about them... More

We chose Main Event because it is always an easy decision, easy access(location) and always very pleasant. We bowled for two hours, enjoyed great food, and had great service. Fun fun fun! You gotta go here!

My family was looking for something fun to do with my three year old son and we showed up to this location thirty minutes before they opened.... the manager was so nice and accommodating! He opened the doors and let us come in early to play in the arcade while they opened the lanes for bowling. I would come back... More

I don't mind paying the price for this place -- and it's not really cheap as you could go to a traditional bowling alley elsewhere and probably bowl for half the price -- as long as the service was up to the level expected. Sadly that wasn't the case in July when my 16-year-old son and I stopped in. For... More

It was a company outing on a Wednesday afternoon so it isn't too crowded. The place is smaller than I thought and is outdated. I'm really not into bowling but I loved the catered food they served though.
