    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.

    Bryant-Lake Bowl, where a certain sort of perfect life has been achieved, a life where a love of the vine and a fascination with mastering the 7-10 split exist in beautiful harmony. Read more

    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.

    tried the cornmeal walleye strips - green goddess on side with healthy dose of the asian 'chicken' hot sauce - $ 8.95 fabulous!Bowlers - watch out the shoes and floors stick-need to adjust (smile) Read more

    Amy's breakfast burrito is always a crowd pleaser, but if you're ever in the mood for something more wholesome, you can't go wrong with the steel cut oatmeal with brown sugar and banana!

    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.

    They have a good beer selection, but if you've come to bowl then you need to know how the scoring works. There is no automated system - everything is pencil & paper. And lane #5 curves to the left.

    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.

    Delicious, spicy, salty Bloody Marys! The Eggsadilla is great too, and never had a bad brunch item there. Staff is always welcoming and great. Love this place!

    This is food if your drunk or hung over. All food taste good when your drunk. Even bacon wrap hot dogs in Tijuana. Great place to bowl have fun and drink.

    Unique menu! Delicious food, vintage bowling, fun crowd. Servers are a little full of themselves but that may be a result of serving too many hipsters.

    Amy Sullivan · October 11, 2014

    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.

    A vintage bowling alley, restaurant, and cabaret theater, serving up grass-fed beef, sustainably harvested seafood, and lots of micro brews.

    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

    Stop for brunch -- both the biscuits and mushroom gravy and the bison hash stand out as classic examples of Uptown comfort food. Read more

    The biscuits & gravy are AMAZING!!! Really filling & a great hangover cure after a night of shots & Sleigh Bells underwear dance parties.

    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 Douglas · September 2, 2011

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

    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

    City Pages · June 16, 2011
  • Ben C.

    They got rid of the BBQ Bowler, the best thing on the breakfast menu. Ask nicely and maybe they’ll bring it back.

    Been here once, this place was reviewed on Dinners and Dives, it is pretty amazing, I will be back for breakfast

    Rent out the theater for your next event! Super accommodating and the staff was incredibly nice!

    Find out when Dykes Do Drag is. Go. Thursday night is two for one with a college ID. It's been 11 years and still packs the house when it's happening.

    The Eggsadilla is a can't miss combination of tortilla, eggs, onions and scallions. Saturday morning fave! Read more

    Looking for a hot drink with a little more punch? Ask for a Hot TEDDY (not Toddy). Made w/ Barenjager, a German honey liqueur Read more

    Cheap Date Night is phenomenal. The food here is always spectacular and the drinks are delicious.

    Try the grilled cheese with tomato and garlic. Sensational. Oh, and don't forget the Farm Girl.

    Ricardo · April 12, 2012
  • Eric S.

    The pad thai is OK, not exceptional. The mac and cheese, however, is amazing. Order that instead.

    Eric Swanson · April 16, 2013
  • Amanda

    A tip for the theater servers: you get money when people order stuff. Maybe check if people want anything. Anything at all.

    Amanda · March 25, 2012

    Just another overrated overpriced hipster wannabe hangout! The bowling here is awful, poorly maintained and the management wants to do nothing about it!

    Sean Lee · August 21, 2013
  • Cole K.

    It's like Lucky Strike, except more hip and authentic and now that I think about it pretty much the only thing they have in common is bowling and booze.

    Cole Kennedy · November 27, 2013
  • Matthew F.

    Mock duck egg rolls!! Little logs of crispy, savory goodness. Have some in the cabaret theater.

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

    Pad Thai is super yummy! And were else can you get Pad Thai in a bowling ally!?

    Caitlin Erwin-MacDonald · May 25, 2013
  • Jeremy L.

    Good for that old school bowling feel. Not great if you don't know how to keep manual score.

    Jeremy Lebens · February 28, 2015

    Love Monday night Cheap Date Night. Dinner for 2, bottle of wine and bowling for $28. Can't beat that.

    Tonight's date night meal was sub par. This is my first date night meal and it didn't live up to the standards of the regular menu.

    Randy Bye · June 17, 2013

    Quesadillas is spicy with pepper jack but good. Grilled cheddar cheese is delicious!!!

    Douche bag host dude with god-awfully bad style took my "outside beverage" away. Soy Latte for the designated driver... Classy dude. Thanks.

    Check out the Cheap Date Night on Mondays. Delicious food and good comedy shows are plentiful here.

    If you get a chance to see a show here, do it! Lovely intimate venue.

    Nice place to hang out. Sometimes the servers are dicks but you get over it.

    As of 7/16/11, the eggs benedict is my new favorite breakfast dish!! :)

    Impress your date by picking up that 7-10 split while crushing a PBR can on your forehead, bro.

    Decent draft beer selection; had the lupulin extra pale ale. Was tasty!

    Christopher S · September 30, 2011

    Make sure to sit in Mickey's section. Also, suggest the daily scramble.

    Arik Hanson · June 19, 2011

    Yum! Great beers, relaxed atmosphere, and great in-house made veggie burger.

    Vilification Tennis: one weekend a month and all through the Ren Fest, most reservist have a better deal than that.

    Andrew McKay · August 10, 2014
  • Krista B.

    Come early for brunch the wait is long but hopefully worth the wait
