We went to Bowl America with a work group of colleagues and young kids. The bowling was fine. But wow is the food slow. I went up to the food area to order two turkey sandwiches. I stood there waiting for about 20 minutes. They...More

Have used this Bowl America for several B-Day parities for my kids. Basic grille food and services where unfortunately they are sometimes understaffed. If you are the kind that spends $500 a B-Day party and everything is done for you ... this is not the...More

This was my third (and last) negative experience here. I came at 11am on a Saturday morning with my spouse and 3 young kids. We asked for 2 lanes and were told that it was "too busy" and they would only give us one lane....More

We've been going sporadically for years, but only because it's the only bowling option within shouting distance. The place is clean, but the service is mediocre, the food ho-ho hum, the scoring system outdated, and the balls ancient. No complaints about the shoes, however.

Went here for a company event. This place is seeing it's age. Was not anything spectacular. Old scoring system. Plenty of different weight balls. Shoes had new heels that actually made it more difficult to slide. Customer service was average if not below. Catering staff...More

It's like I'm a kid again. They have some fancy craft beers and of course the basics. Come early on peak nights! It's all you can bowl on Thursday nights so take advantage.
