Bowling! Ping Pong! Billiards! Shooting range. Arcade for all ages! Our family had a great time here. (Love the military discount!) Matinee rates before 6pm. Families allowed until 9 pm. Great location! Connected to AMC theater, so you can make a whole day of it.

Went here with my family for drinks before going to the AMC movies. Very comfortable seating (big booths, couches, etc) to have some drinks and watch sports highlights. Good service as well. Would definetely recommend.
