    Nice place to go and have some fun. Cool lanes, horrid wait, but expected for only 12 lanes. Skip weekend bowling they are always booked. Good food though

    Very happy we were able to get in. There's lots to do. Drinks were great and while there was a wait we were occupied with the games.

    While there’s a certain retro charm in the worn carpets, lingering eau de Marlboro, and bouffant-coiffed rental clerks at most bowling alleys, the truth is, sometimes we want a little more... Read more

    I liked this place until they started playing Justin Bieber "Baby". Jokes aside, very clean, cozy, and the food is good.

    Nice beer assortment! Affordable prices, the bowling lanes are good

    Bowling implies crappy food, pitchers of cheap beer, weird smells, and a case of athlete's foot. Grand Central removes all of that and achieves the impossible: a "classy" bowling ally.

    Try Low Brow Bowling night. Also, a fun spot to watch sports on TV upstairs if you're with a large group.

    The 80 ounce pitchers have their own tap and an ice core... Fantastic.

    If you come hear to bowl, your wasting your time. The lanes aren't very good at all. But if you hear for a party it's a great atmosphere. But super expensive...
