    Staff is super friendly. Went on a league night, so it was pretty hectic but we had no problem walking in and getting a lane. Pizza was actually really good!!!

    Sit on the alley side of the bar, get a PBR (in a bottle!), and people-watch. A most interesting mix of people frequent this establishment.

    The cheap daytime bowling deals make this alley great. Weekend prices, despite cosmic bowling and rock tunes, aren't worth it outside of a birthday party or big group. Surprisingly good food.

    Probably only a matter of time before a food show finds out about it. Get the 1st 1 on the menu with the bacon and what not. Get it with the sweet potato tater tots. A Hopothesis to wash it down..

    Open till 3a of Friday and Saturday this is a great place to come with a mixed crowd. They have a bar for the older people but it's still a bowling alley for those who are underage.
