First time to be here with a few family friends to bond for the weekend. It was about 20 of us who came to this place for the very first time. The place may need a bit updating but overall okay. The rent rate was great and the place was huge. The people at the front desk were very nice and welcoming from the time we came and from the time we left. The only reason I am giving them 2 stars review is because of the service I received at the food kiosk which completely ruined my mood the whole time I was there. After placing my order so the kids can eat while playing, the lady who was helping me told me that my number will be called. However, being my first time to ever be in their bowling place and given how a bit loud it was that day, I misunderstood her as asking me about my table number. When I responded to her with my number, she said to me in a very annoyed response, "I will not deliver your food! Your number is on your receipt! We dont deliver food here!" I said, okay and was actually willing to let it go although I felt kind of embarrassed as other guests were standing next me who heard and saw what just happened. I took my receipt and walked away to our table willing to let it go as it was probably my error to assume that they do take the food to the tables, however, as I went back to get some condiments, I overheard her with another co-worker talking about me. She was telling her other co-worker of what happened and how I thought someone will deliver the food and she said no. I wanted to say something but decided to let it go. It was not worth the argument, however, because of this experience, I will probably more likely not to come back to this place. It will probably be my first and last visit to this location. I work in the customer service too and I know how it can sometimes be frustrating and intimidating but it should never be a reason to be unprofessional and rude. There is always a nice way to say "NO" and explain to customers, especially clueless ones like myself, in a nice, more professional manner. I felt really embarrassed that day. I will surely will never forget this visit. :( :( :(
Bowl America has been the steady rock in my bowling alley wandering. I wander from alley to alley but my search for a well maintained bowling alley that is also fun always leads back to here. They may not have fancy screens and animated themes but their lanes are well kept and much more satisfying to bowl on. The food is meh but their focus really is on the bowling. If you want to party at a bowling alley there are many places you can go that keep the lights down and the drinks flowing. But if you want to bowl and have a good time, go here.
This place was horrible. There was hair in the cups and a pizza is $17. The cups were even reused. The game messed up twice in the second game. My kids were visiting me from out of town and love bowling and they were so disapointed therefore never again. I told their workers and they just said ok like they could careless. The female was kind but the others didnt do anything but watch and laugh. The person I spoke to just looked at me like whatever and he had a tag that said CUSTOMER REPRESENTATIVE. Dude was horrible.
Place is pretty dated compared to Strike or Shady Grove 300. I used to go here after work in 95. It really hasnt changed since. No big screens above the lane as you bowl. No hip staffers bringing you drinks. The lights are actually on too. Prices were not that bad. Snack counter seems busy. Floor was a little too slick. My 3 year old had a great afternoon. Do call ahead as they have a lot of league blocked off lanes.
Not bad for $2 per person lane and $2 shoe rental on Sunday. Thats a deal! Pretty tight in there though. They made us wait an hour for an open lane although they were several not being used. They must have been reserved for a club, but I think they should reconsider doing that on a Sunday evening when its so busy. Nevertheless, this place is a good deal if you dont mind crowds on a Sunday.
This place is just good old fashioned fun. A lot of the equipment seems to be the same equipment it was when it opened, so it could really use an upgrade. Theres a light show at night and a small arcade. We thought the food was just ok. There are a lot of lanes and the staff responded immediately when our ball got stuck.
Lets go bowlin hun. In a great place with none of the flashy lights and blaring music or video screens. Remember when going bowling to bowl was enough? this place does. If you want an arcade and plenty of distractions then try one of those other places. But if you want to bowl THIS is where you want to go
3.5 Ratings, Staff and services are good. Place itself is not very happy or pleasing (maybe my personal view) as it lacks bright colors, no music, no young glamorous crowd. Its been filled with old people most of times. But for Bowling its good, there are always tournaments, league going on.
They are doing business malpractice by advertising free bowing summer blast. You have to pay $4.50 for shoe rental. They said mom&dad each can have one free game but then asking each parent to register separately. Next game starts automatically and then they charge you for that.
This place needs a serious re-vamp. I have gone here since I was a little kid and it still looks the same. The deals here are pretty good if you go on the right time and the staff are pretty nice. With a little work I would come here more but it is just feels old.
Was there last year with friends and we all had a great time here. 300 on shady grove is updated and looks better, but its also very busy and I dont like that. If you just want to bowl and not to big on looks then this is a great choice. Staff was very friendly!
Good pricing, but ancient equipment. Lanes are in need of repair, score machines are from the mid 90s and have no fun graphics. Cosmic bowling has poor sound quality and bland lighting. Lanes often miss count the number of pins knocked down.
Lots of lanes, nice staff, and great prices on beer!! I pick this place over the pretentious place next to Home Depot and 270 on Shady Grove Road every time (that places name is also always constantly changing-- its "Bowlmor" right now)

It is a great place in the neighborhood. The prices are relatively low and usually not crowded. It has a good view but still it seems that it is under construction or renovation. They have free parking and it is always available.
Standard bowling lanes ... Good rates on Sunday. $2.25 a game and I believe it was $5 for shoes. Good crowd. Food is a little pricey but it was good bar food. Oil was clean and the fried food was decent enough for consumption.
Over priced both to bowl and to eat. The food is NOT that good and extremely over priced. Always busy on weekends. Leagues. Lots of parking. Attached dinner. Late night hours. Arcade room.
