Stopped by Bass Pro shop to do a little shopping and decided to eat here, we should have eaten elsewhere. the restaurant is off the bowling alley and it was very noisy! the food was average, we enjoyed the alligator and crawfish appetizers but the portions were small. Our meals were just ok.

I have eaten here three times in the past few months. The food has been average. I ordered a jalapeño burger but the jalapeños were canned not fresh and the burger wasn't spicy. The tap water tasted gross. Pizza was good but the center of the crust was not crisp. Service has been great. The dinning area is wonderfully decorated... More

Went bowling at Uncle Buck's and was disappointed. The cost was fairly high for 1 and a 1/2 games of bowling. They charge by the hour for a lane. $19.99 per hour plus shoes. The more people you have the lower the price, but also the less games you can bowl. Their pin recycling machines are also very slow, which... More

The restaurant is a really neat place especially when you have three young sons. The boys really thought it was neat. The food was pretty good and the wait staff was very good. Major bonus that it is connected to the Bass Pro Shop.

We had heard of this place through friends, and headed over to peoria in search of fun. It's a little different from other Bowling alleys. It was fun and the food was good. Expect to spend a lot of money here. An hour of Bowling and food was over $100. OK every once in a while.

The Bass Pro shop is a great place to visit just to experience the decor of nature and outdoor life. The Bowling alley is amazing just to walk into, like being under the sea. The restaurant is like wise unique in decor. The prices really dissolve the enjoyment. They offer a varied menu from Pizza to steak to Seafood. I'd... More

I come in when I'm not having a good day just to sit in front of the tank and relax. I bring in hotel guests just to see the tank itself and have a drink. The cost is what you would expect being linked to a store and the food is just ok. However the service is pretty good and... More

Went to lunch with some family. Food was overpriced and not good quality. Family across from us complained about their burgers the whole time. Booth we sat at was so small we could barely fit around it. Only good thing was the staff was very nice

Uncle Buck's Fish Bowl and Grill features a truly unique atmosphere and design geared for family fun and dining. Casual family dining is available in the Grill where you can select from a menu featuring a variety of appetizers, sandwiches, salads and burgers. A private room is available and is the perfect spot for a private lunch or dinner, seminar or even a fun birthday party. An island-theme bar area, offers visitors the experience of feeling like they are underwater exploring the skeletal remains of a sunken ship. Looking up, visitors can see the battered, barnacle and coral-encrusted wooden hull, an old rusted iron chain and the iron rail around the bow. A host of exotic fish swim in and around the wreck while Dorado and sharks, suspended from the ceiling, appear to swim overhead. The bar features a huge saltwater aquarium with scores of beautiful, tropical fish. It is elevated to provide views of the bowling action while serving up your favorite refreshment.
