    Drink service at the lanes & bar is super slow better off going across the street to Polo Grounds #LuckyStrike #BetterOffBowling

    Bowling was fun but food was too bad and too pricy.
  • Pavan K.
    the service is insanely slow and horrible with stained plates

    They use bowling pins on strings instead of real pinsetters, so I wouldn't necessarily come here to bowl.

    I had never expected to be impressed by food at a bowling alley, but the barbacoa street tacos here were absolutely amazing.

    Used to be my favorite place before the Giants game but ever since they changed the menu (few months ago), I can't stand it. They got rid of all the best appetizers!

    This place gets up there and if you don't have a reservation it's really hard to get in... but it's a blast with a group of your closest friends!

    That second lane closest to the shoes kept dropping an additional pin between bowls. The guy at the desk said to just manually subtract it every frame :/

    With the exception of the one person that checked us in and our waitress at the lane Lucky Strike was about the most disappointing experience I could have imagined.

    Make sure you either make a "party reservation" or arrive super early

    Don't come here if you want proper lanes to bowl on. Pins are on strings and seem light. Lanes don't seem lubricated. Come here if you just want to have fun and don't give a care.

    I got food poisoned from the burger. Definitely not recommending having food there. Just go for watching games and beer.

    Perhaps the worst service of any sports bar in town. Could be good for big groups but it's a terribly run business

    Perfect for the city, BUT those DAMNED pins on STRINGS?!?!? WTF!!! The atmosphere is club-like with a nice decor and decent, pricey food but not the place for hardcore bowlers

    If you like your whiskey "on the rocks", be prepared to pay a $4 up charge for their ice. Manager says there is a $4 up charge if you order "neat" too...

    Horrible service the first time through. gave it a second chance since it's in my hood. The second time the bad service started with the doorman and continued at the bar. Doubtful I'll be back.

    More fun if your bowling name was a prostitute name: 1st=Name of first pet; 2nd=Street you grew up on. I was PATCHES LOKELANI. I blame all that cracking up on everyone's names for my 22 bowling score.

    $60/hour for a lane on a Saturday night after 5pm. Definite spot to hit up if you're a yuppie and got money like that. Cocktails were not as pricey as some yelpers would lead you to believe.

    While the lanes might be regulations length. The approach is short and the pins are set by strings, think duckpin bowling. All in all still a great time.
