Sports on the TV, bowling, outdoor bocce, decent food, very family friendly & dog friendly. Busy place but they make it work. 2 minutes from Jack London Square and on the waterfront.

Great idea in the mysteriously not awesome JLS. Bocce. Hot hipsters bowling. Plenty of outdoor space buffered from the train tracks and traffic. No view. Food mediocre. Totally acceptable. But nothing to draw you here especially with all the absolutely amazing foot options nearby. But...More

This is where it's happening in Jack London Square. Great outdoor seating for a drink and fun things to do. Bocce outside and bowling and arcade inside. The service is outstanding--so many people and they were so attentive and quick. We did not eat there--just...More
