    Kings has the best nachos in town! It's all about layering when it comes to nachos and they get it! Never a dry chip.

    The cocktail list is something I would create if I was a fifteen year old girl - disgusting

    So so karaoke. Way too crowded, girls put in 3 requests before singing once. Whoever tips the highest

    Wednesday nights after 9p serious Kegglers will find the best deal at Kings. $10 all you can bowl. Wish more serious bowlers would go.

    Great retro bar for just a fun time where no one judges.

  • Saumil P.

    Great place. Throw the slurveball.

    Saumil P. · July 15, 2010
  • Annie M.

    The Skee Ball here is bogus; here's why: the games are each jacked up on a cumbersome platform that is almost a foot off the ground, making it extremely awkward to launch a skee ball. No 100 pointers

    Annie M. · July 17, 2013
  • DJ C.

    Great music, fun vibe. Sometimes douchy, but where isn't it 'round here? Still a great time.

    DJ C. · September 28, 2012
  • Jake S.

    The karaoke DJs are not judicious at all when it comes to choosing the singing order. On the other hand, they have pitchers of beer for decent prices.

    Bad reputation for being racist... Watch yourself and how you dress especially if you're black

    College night is on Tuesdays (avoid like the plague if you're not a student or hate to wait an hour for a lane—or get there early if you're a card-carrying sophmore and enjoy free bowling!) Read more

  • The Feast

    Saturday night they've got karaoke at 10:30 (on Thurs it's at 9:30). 21+ and tight security, so don't even think about it if you're under age.

    Serious upgrade at Kings skee ball and shuffleboard heyyooo

    Don't listen to Saumil. He can't bowl.

    Kings late night menu is better than some full menus you see at "good" restaurants. Yumminess

    There's always a hot chick bowling... Get off your phone and look!

    Fuck this place. I'm sorry but when your 30 years old and you don't have your usual drivers license but have a valid scannable ID. You should not have a problem. So, I'll take my money somewhere else.

    Definitely thought Kings would be bigger than it is!!! They should tell you on their website that you need reservations at the restaurant in order to eat and get priority bowling.

    Don't bother going there with kids after 5pm; we were disappointed with their lack of hospitality for our 8 year old.

    Had to go get a waitress at the bar from a table and got kicked off the lane after the two of us bowled one game. Will not be back.

    So so karaoke. Way too crowded, girls put in 3 requests before singing once. The karaoke DJ told us whoever tips the highest gets to sing. Messed up.

    Caesar salad is humongous.

    Frederick Bernard S. · September 29, 2011
  • Genevieve C.

    Worst waitress staff. Both times I've been there, the several waitresses we had were terrible and had serious attitudes. The bartenders and bussers were awesome though. Won't go back.

    Genevieve C. · May 15, 2011

    Solid side house salads.
