This place is a restaurant with a small bowling alley attached. A place where people come to dine instead of bowling. The food was very good but not cheap. The service was excellent, with our waiter Nicco being very attentive. They had a "specials" menu...More

Checked in to our hotel and asked for suggestions on dinner and cocktails. Both front desk clerks and a hotel guest immediately suggested the Bowling Alley! It is located directly behind the La Quinta Inn. We are always up for a new experience, so we...More

OK, we read all the reviews and we're hoping this place was going to be a diamond in the rough. All the reviews raved about how great the food was. To be honest, it was fairly average. A good meal but nothing spectacular.

Good food at a reasonable price with a full bar. It can be busy because most patrons are locals, so plan on arriving early if possible.

Yep. This restaurant is in a bowling alley. Very busy at 9 pm. The locals are quite fond of this place--they know what they want without a menu! If you want the prime rib, get there early!
