Fun atmosphere for bowling. There were games the kids could play, where they tried to hit a pin that was lit up. If they win, the prize was a free game however the fine print indicates it's only valid week days. We were only in...More

The restaurant section was being re-set from a private party, so we ate at the bar. The kids enjoyed that aspect of it - drinking sodas belly up in the captain's chair seats. The woman at the bar was very friendly and accommodating with our...More

Stopped in for lunch while shopping at Bass Pro. Restaurant is right beside bowling alley, so it is a bit loud, but not too bad. We tried the Fried Pickle Fries which were tasty and more than enough for two people to split. We both...More

Ate here on a Wednesday night. Decided to eat at the bar. Restaurant is in the middle of a bowling alley, so don't expect a quiet conversation! Restaurant is pretty cool with fish tanks and such. Bartender/waitress would disappear for 20 minutes at a time,...More

We've been here a dozen times and have the same experience (but supplied with different excuses from the staff) every time. The place is poorly managed. Our last visit was with 3 other couples. Dinner took over 2 hrs to complete with many meals arriving...More

We like to eat at uncle bucks. We pass up the chain restaurants to go. We love the nachos. They are a big meal in their own. They are enough for the whole table. We like that you can get rare fish and meat. So...More

Typical "neighborhood grill and bar" place. Despite being the "fishbowl" grill and having fish hanging from the ceiling, and being in the "Bass" Pro shop, "fish" was not on the menu last time I was there They did have some on a specials menu though...More
