Nice bowling place, lots of options for kids, good food,quick service,over all enjoyed with kids. Ample parking area is definitely a plus point. They even offer discounts on Sunday evenings after 6pm.

Great bowling venue. Lots of parking, over 30 lanes and very pleasant and helpful staff. Food was surprisingly good for a bowling alley, in fact the burger was excellent, cooked medium rare and tasted superb. Great fun for a couple of hours.

The location is hard to find and the facility is dated and tired. The wait time was estimated to be about 30 minutes but was a little longer than an hour, and the entire time there were several open lanes that were not being assigned...More

My wife and I recently visited Bowlmor with our friends and had a great time. The facility is clean, although some of the couches are a little worn. On the other hand, they do have couches instead of uncomfortable chairs, so that’s nice. On Sundays...More

Bowlmor offers a fun family activity for cold or rainy days. It can be a bit expensive so I recommend going at off-peak times.

The bowling is mediocre, everything is slimy and very overpriced. I didn't know that bowling with three people cost over $120. Also, their milkshakes tasted good, but after one sip you were done because it was 90% whipped creme. I would recommend everyone that has...More

If you are expecting a classic bowling alley with cheap bowling and cheap games don't come here. This place is so fancy it irritates the crap out of me. This is not how bowling should be. The games are super expensive. Prizes are horrible. And...More

The bowling alley has all the modern amenities of a new bowling alley...computer scoring, video screens, automated ball bumpers for kids, foodservice lane side and a small arcade. The attendants are all very nice and helpful. The only downside is the expense...the experience is not...More

The Bowl or Lanes located near River Road is a great place to take your teens for an afternoon of raucous fun. Neon and black lights create a fun atmosphere for all. Good snack bar. Call for lane availability as this place is always busy.
