Called ahead of time to reserve a lane as we were taking our kiddo to celebrate a bday. Told me no need to reserve. Get there and end up waiting 1 hr 45 minutes for lane. Staff at bowling counter was rude and kept putting us off. Seemed quite annoyed we were using Groupon. Enjoyed the games and bowling despite all that. Definitely a pricey outing without a Groupon.

If you like simple, old-fashioned bowling alleys, this isn't for you. It's loud and bright and features advertising and music videos over the pins, and automatic score-keeping that doesn't allow for any input from bowlers beyond names. There's also a arcade game room, with very confusing cards to purchase (they charge $3 for the card, but then you 'get that back' on the card, only I bought two and got three receipts: one for $10, another for $10, and one for $23. When I asked staff about this, they attempted to make it right by crediting those two game cards with a bit extra, but when I later checked my online statement, I'd been charged the correct $20. So, staff doesn't understand how the card-purchase machines work any better than I do. The kids had fun, but we won't be going back any time soon.

We had a great time here with our two young grandkids! They were pretty busy but they did get us on a lane quickly. The atmosphere was fun for all of us. We had a very nice server who was very busy but made sure we had everything we needed. The food was good too! I would recommend this place for a fun time with family or friends.
