Our family was looking for a good place to eat a late supper on a Sunday. The Comet Bowl Restaurant was open. The service was friendly and the waitress accurately took our order. The food came to us fresh and hot. Our drinks were refilled...More

Be sure to check on the lunch specials Monday - Friday. These change daily, so be sure to check each time you stop in. Quantities are limited, so don't be late!

One time I was craving a salad that another local restaurant makes that I love. Instead I got iceberg lettuce with a package of Kraft dressing. Very overpriced. On the other hand, grilled chicken sandwich and Rubens are always a good choice.

The service here is always friendly. The food is consistently good. They have a variety of soups throughout the week and their hamburgers and fries are alway hot and tasty.

Not a bowler, but come here for an occasional dinner. Good burgers and an always good tenderloin sandwich.

This little dive set in a bowling alley has the best onion rings in the area. It has the best service too. The other food is pretty typical pub fare and they have a nice selection of beer for a small place.

Good fried foods at a cheap price. I recommend a stop here if your in the area. Try the pizza burger. Bowl a game or two when you're finished eating.

If you're looking for great food, you won't find it here. But, you will find sustenance to keep you alive. As the last poster mentioned, this is bar food. Nothing more, nothing less. We received prompt, personable service. I attempted to order a Reuben sandwich...More
