There's no sound quite like the crack of a bowling ball finding its target. It's a sound that triggers memories of childhood, and it's one that you'll hear probably a hundred times during a game at Ormond Lanes Bowling. The alley's 40 lanes give players plenty of room to plot out spares and strikes, while the Sandbagger Caf? serves all the wraps and salads needed to refuel after a game. If you have kids in tow, make sure to stop by the game room for a few rounds of air hockey. There's also a game room exclusively for adults, the Kingpin Lounge, where you can play pool, shoot darts, or file your taxes.
Batt Family Fun Center's facilities lure bowlers of all ages with a plethora of smooth lanes, some of which are surrounded by bumpers, and league and specialty bowling. Roll one of Batt Family Fun Center's colorful, varying-in-weight bowling balls toward innocent pins while wearing stylish yet effectual nonscuffing footwear. Xtreme bowling, a cosmic-bowling experience that takes place on Friday and Saturday nights, dazzles the eyes with lasers, disco lights, black lights, and fog, and doles out stimulation for the ears in the form of loud music and the sounds professional athletes make when they get injured. An arcade room and snack bar ensure those waiting to roll remain entertained and full of flavor. Rounding out the family fun are billiards tables and glow-in-the-dark mini golf.
Just like at family meals, people tend to gather around the tables inside Chiefland Billiards. But theses are pool and billiards tables, and rather than sit down and eat, they move about, take aim, and take friends on for friendly competition. Over at the bar, bartenders pop the caps off of Bud Light bottles while TVs play live sports. A full kitchen in the back send out bites such as classic grilled cheese sandwiches and grilled peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Chiedland also has a strict smoke-free policy, so no one goes home smelling like a cigarette or 300.
O’Malley’s Alley refills depleted hunger tanks with Irish-inspired pub grub and slakes thirst with a full bar of liquid libations. The culinary lineup includes traditional Irish fare, such as sandwiches, salads, seafood, and sautéed shamrocks, served on well-worn wooden tables inside the dimly lit eatery or outdoors on the expansive patio. On select nights, live music performances fill the air with melodious harmonies.
