I've never bowled before but the environment had me pumped, almost as if I was in a night club :-) The food was also great.

I took my kids and grandchildren to Sparians for the first time last Saturday. We arrived at noon and did not have to wait for our lanes. They checked us in and took our pizza and drink orders promptly. We proceeded to play while they...More

I didn't bowl because my wrist was sore. My wife , son and 2 nieces bowled. I tried to watch, but the couches are facing the bowlers sideways, and you just can't see the lane that well. I noticed that they start the 1 hour...More

I will preface this by saying that I could have hit Sparians on an off-night and just had bad luck, but overall I was disappointed. After a lackluster meal (just bland...everyone at the table had the same sentiments), we went over to bowl. My group...More

I get that everything about Sparians is better than your average bowling alley, especially the food and furnishings. But expect to pay a pretty penny for it. My kids are still in grade school and get 90% of the enjoyment at a Joe-bowling alley for...More

Worth every dime! Food was delicious and staff very attentive. Private room and midtown suite really made our Family reunion special. Something for everyone and live music after our event. Get there early or be prepared to park. Great atmosphere

Entre food is mediocre at best. Prices are too high. But definitely more upscale than most bowling places.

This place has the best atmosphere ever. It's very unique. It has an upscale appeal with urban flare. It has the best bowling place in town. I've not utilized the private suites as of yet, but that fact they offer those is huge bonus. I've...More

This is expensive for bowling, but it was so nice to have a clean, family friendly option for a fun activity like bowling. So worth it. And the environment is truly unique.

I don't love bowling, so let's just put that out there. I thought the food was just OK. The service was pretty good. The atmosphere is good, I guess. I just don't really get the appeal of this place but many of my friends like...More
