We used a Groupon which was a good deal with pizza and a pitcher of soda. They have a full bar which is good for adults. The customer service is ok but they are really busy on rainy days so I think it was ok...More

Was alot if fun for an hour of bowling. The pizza was less than spectacular. Atmosphere is pretty neat. It is like you are underwater.

This place is kitchy and cheesey, but in a cool way. You walk in and the main dining area looks like you're sitting in an aquarium, with shark cages and divers suspended from the ceiling like a moment in time frozen from Discovery Channels shark...More

Ehhh this tasted like frozen fish - wasn’t good at all. Ate there for our grandson after bowling. This was all the shrimp and fries you wanted. The kitchen couldn’t stay up with 8 people in the restaurant cooking shrimp or fries. Skip this place

Uncle Buck’s was awesome! Recommend looking on groupon before going. They had great deals on there. They also had good food and drinks. Our wait on a Saturday around noon for 2 lanes was 30 minutes.

They didn't seem to take reservations, and it was very busy. You can go in and put your name on the wait list, and then have dinner inside or in the complex. And shop! They call you when your lane is open. Hope that helps!
