    Voted Best Bowling Alley by City Pages in 2011! Do-it-yourself scoring and $2 bowling most nights of the week make Bryant Lake Bowl the ideal bowling alley

    You wouldn't expect to find amazing curried chevre fusilli with English peas at a bowling alley, but that's the type of fare they're serving here. Read more

    Don't know how to manually keep bowling score? Well, then you're in toubs. Also, the girls bathroom smells like red licorice, which is a good th- NO, excellent thing.

    The BBQ Bowler is the best item on the breakfast menu. Pro Tip: You can substitute breakfast potatoes for the mixed greens. I recommend you do that.

    The current mayor hates cheese because of a traumatic experience as a child. Ask her. She's bartending.

    Amanda's is my favorite of the Bloodies. Much respect for 4 of them on the menu. Tart, a little kick, nice thick mix.

    Wyn D. · September 2, 2011

    Don't be a jerk: order Amanda's Bloody. It's like the tang of Bloodies.

    It's like Lucky Strike except more hip and authentic and pretty much the only thing they have in common is bowling and booze.

    Get a seat at the bar if you can and watch Casper work; singing, commentary, and all n all a positive person make the experience at the bar on Sunday an awesome brunch. Get the BLB hash.

    Gluten free bread and buns available. Omission Pale Ale and Lager in bottles. GF people can *eat a burger* and *drink a beer* in public at the same time. Luxury.

    The bathroom sink splashes everywhere when it's on full throttle. Use caution. Wet pants aren't fun.

    Voted Top 10 Bloody Marys! Our favorite is Amanda's Rock n' Roller made with lots of garlic and mild green Tabasco but maybe the Bloody Caesar made with Clamato or the Bloody Beer is more your style.

    Sunday's Neighborhood Night is a fabulous, low-key way to end the weekend. Cheap local brews and food, plus $2 bowling.
