We were the only ones there so we basically had the run of the place. Warren said to let us know if we wanted the music changed or the disco ball on. He was very... More

Great for kids who are learning to bowl, but the 5-pin lanes get old real fast. Prices are a little on the steep side for 5-pin bowling but really no complaints. You get what you pay for, suggest staying away from the packaged nachos or you'll be on the can for a few days.

Bowling lanes are a disappearing breed but we are fortunate to have 6 lanes available here. Every time I have visited, I have found it clean and tidy. During the afternoons it is usually quiet and easy to find an open lane. If you are looking to play in the evening, call first to see about availability as often league... More

The lanes are quite quiet. Other than the regular league times this facility is very open to the public. There is a bar for the adults and popcorn etc. for the kids. The facility is very clean and the staff is excellent.

Good lanes, nice, friendly staff and a bar afterwards to celebrate your strikes with friends. A great place to go when you have to entertain the kids on a wet vacation day.

This bowling alley is small and pretty quiet the times I have been there. It is nice to not be in one of the big ones that is loud. I have gone there with family and with youth groups, it is always a good time!
