Great bowling alley and game center! They hosted the state youth bowling tournament and were wonderful hosts. They offered lots of choices of food at decent prices. Big, clean bathrooms.

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.
