    If you're here to bowl or play pool, call to book early. Lanes and tables get booked quickly on weekend nights and expect 2 hour waits if you're coming in at 9 PM.

    Awesome place, big and so much fun however it's ridiculous trying to order a drink at the bars.. You'll wait 15 minutes before they even look at you.. Suggestion: order a few once you get your chance.

    Nice place for a group party!! You can play pool, billiards, ping-pong, and many more things while you have food and drinks. Lots of flat screens to watch sport games as well. Good music!

    Take a break for a little fun with luxury lane bowling in the Fenway area. Reservations recommended Thursday through Saturday evenings. Can be a bit busier during Fenway events.

    Long wait on Friday and Saturday nights but you can put your name in and they will text you, so go grab a drink at a local bar beforehand and wait!

    Cool arcade here, but mostly geared toward kids. Loved the giant Space Invaders. Good pool hall too, assuming it’s not reserved for a pool league.

    If you are a boy wear normal shoes those wearing boots (because of rain or snow) you will be turned away. Also use the "reward" when you first set up a lane otherwise they

    The staff could have been friendlier and the food a little higher quality. The salad was shredded lettuce, the fries were over cooked. They've got fun activities though (pool, ping pong, bowling).

    Show up early on Saturday nights if you want to bowl. I was there at 8:30pm and they quoted a 3 hour wait and it ended up being 3:45 hours.

    Since the place is huge many people don't realize they have a great roof deck. Limited to 45 people so make sure you get there early.

    It's a cool venue - the drinks are fairly priced, which will likely drop the quality of the bowling for most...

    The best bowling ally in Boston! Food and drink served lane side, the decor is super swanky, just an all around good time.

    Dress code enforced after 8 p.m. which means no hats or sweats. Spend $10 on lunch and get a free game.

    Good place for pool/bowling, but it gets packed on weekends. Check out all the Shepard Fairey (OBEY) artwork in bathroom corridor, 3rd floor.

    If the lanes upstairs are too crowded go to the second floor lanes. Always an opening

    Food is no good, beer selection so-so. But if you want to bowl, and can't make it to Kings, this is the place.

    Try the Punching Bag machine and try to get over 800 points.

    It's awesome when they harrass a group of 12 paying customers because they turn 21+ at 8:30 on a Wednesday night. Also, don't you dare wear a hat.

    Lucky strike has the worst selection of bowling balls and lowest quality lanes I've ever played on. Other than that, it's a fun place to hang out.
