This is far and above your typical bowling alley! Food is really quite good and the arcade is a big draw for my kids. Lots of cool updates on the lanes themselves and the outdoor patio is top-notch!

Was there with a group of 11 and of that 5 were kids under the age of 10. Staff was very freindly and the place was very clean. The prices are great and the food was very good and priced right.
