Another center run by idiots! Staff stinks ++++ rude desk people ++++

Why are you disappointed? It's all about the money for corporate!

Comment Date: 1/1/2016 Name: Anonymous
Very disappointed in last night's "Ball Drop Package." Hidden fees, average of $8 per person, terrible buffet selections and quantity provided, and completely under staffed and over priced. $240 for 3 adults 3 children. 3 1/2 games, cheese pizza, nachos, and 2 empty pans that were apparently supposed to be for chicken tenders. Completely missed the mark despite the efforts of the hard working, low amount of staff!

Comment Date: 10/1/2014 Name: Cheaters I mean Classic
I think it's great rules are made to be followed only when it's in the "officers" favor SMH Seems you have a few disgruntle bowlers! Keep them close. just saying

@Anonymous if they don't get their way they cry n cry n cry

Comment Date: 9/17/2014 Name: Anonymous
What a joke. The league has rules that not even the officers follow. Votes get "taken" without all teams even knowing about it. Definitely caters to their "clique".

Comment Date: 9/10/2014 Name: Classic NOT
Seriously need a name change for this league far from Classic! More like Cheaters

@ Anonymous Bowl Mor has a HUGE task when they really look into AMF Cranston Bowl! The free drinks that used to be served to certain bowlers was unreal! I hope Bowl Mor cleans house of all & brings in their people no ties, no connections. Start with the GM & work their way down down down Guarantee more people would open bowl spend $$ & party!

Comment Date: 8/10/2014 Name: Anonymous
Heard bowlmor is changing it all up! WTG bowlmor cannot wait to see it all unfold!

Comment Date: 7/16/2014 Name: Anonymous
Hope they get rid of Amy at the front desk she is the most discourteous employee that place has

Comment Date: 7/9/2014 Name: ASJ
@ Anonymous Best thing they can here is to CLEAN house of the Deadwood not only on the lanes but within the entire center! Change is good!

Comment Date: 7/8/2014 Name: Anonymous
Looks like Bowlmor is making changes WTG Bowlmor we like it a lot!

Comment Date: 7/6/2014 Name: Anonymous
@$$$ man lol 100% true!

Comment Date: 7/4/2014 Name: Melee'
Bowlmor will not tolerate the mentality within this center. It is clear to many that the place needs an overhaul of management, employees & some personnel. If AMF was doing the right thing Bowlmor wouldn't had taken it over ;-) Good luck to all 2014-15 season :-)

The poison has spread throughout many a center. Bowling is a poor man's sport & it's fading away away away...then what? LOL Party House coming!

I heard two individuals who were caught stealing money behind the front desk are gone

@Hammersmith Sadly the "mouthpiece" hides! Bowlmor needs an update of the status +

Comment Date: 4/14/2014 Name: Hammersmith
@ Anonymous 4-13 WOW so many people staying Anonymous! You are right the good bowling centers are long gone, the good owners are gone also sadly it's all about the $$$ Years ago certain owners were hands on good GM's in place (that knew the game well) now all corporate BS & absentee owners, unqualified people are in charge! The younger generations have no respect for the game, think they know it all lol and they don't! The old timers bowled on any condition unlike today & they bowled well. Why because they loved the game not the loved their status! Bowl well!

Comment Date: 4/7/2014 Name: Melee m
$$$$$$$$ money is what they want! Maybe the servers stop giving the "drama queen" free drinks!

Comment Date: 4/6/2014 Name: Anonymous
Get rid of that red head behind the desk she is the most arrogant fake person ever

Comment Date: 4/5/2014 Name: Anonymous
@ anonymous I totally agree! Management needs to take some lessons as well as employees for customer service! Bowlmor has a huge job here!

Comment Date: 4/4/2014 Name: Anonymous
I would nt bowl here if it was free! Bowlmor better start handing out the pink slips & vacating the center of the "trash"

Comment Date: 4/3/2014 Name: Anonymous
All Cranston needs is someone who knows the business, treats each and every person who comes in with dignity and respect, and worry more about the customer experience rather than making budget or a bonus. If you treat the customers with respect as opposed to a dollar sign, eventually the karma can be reversed and you can begin making money like you used to. This holds true for a LOT of bowling centers, not just Cranston.

Comment Date: 3/31/2014 Name: Anonymous
Bowlmor wants party's $$$$$ the leagues will be gone soon, along with all the BS drama! Sharpen your pencils get the resume ready!

Comment Date: 3/29/2014 Name: Melee
Well,hopefully all,of you go away! Bowlmor wins! So many issues there

Comment Date: 3/26/2014 Name: Strike
@ Anonymous the DM does as he's told by Corporate, one day he will be gone also as he definitely is NOT a good judge of character. Look at some of the people he has hired leased space to etc...He looks the other way & should look head on at certain circumstances! SO many people leave this establishment drunk day in n day out! All about $$$$$ but when there is a accident death watch out!!

Comment Date: 3/24/2014 Name: So long Farewell
@ Anonymous It's evident he has made very bad choices & also allowing employees to serve "free" drinks etc...hopefully Bowlmor wipes the entire house clean & brings new blood to the center! So you have a weak GM DM no wonder this center is hurting the game!

Comment Date: 3/18/2014 Name: Anonymous
They do push numbers in this place after working for them for over 5 years..rob califano the dm is the biggest joke so long bowlmor/amf you did alot of damage to the sport of bowling

Comment Date: 3/14/2014 Name: Meleeeee Metooooo
I hope they get rid of all the leagues & start over, place needs a good housecleaning! So political & the GM is afraid of his own shadow.

Comment Date: 3/9/2014 Name: JS
@Quota I think they are pushing the leagues out! Wait n see!

Comment Date: 2/24/2014 Name: Quota
@ Anonymous I heard they push numbers...which means you must meet your quota for sales with food, beverages etc...clearly this is wrong. It is a bowling center not a food establishment nor a bar room, therefore they should be worried about creating an atmosphere to attract bowlers! The food sold & alcohol served should be an added bonus NOt the priority!

Comment Date: 2/22/2014 Name: Anonymous
It would be great if the CPD did an undercover sting here! There is so much more going on that meets the eye!

Comment Date: 2/17/2014 Name: Mom
@ Anonymous I try to watch my kids bowl once in awhile and what I see being served double fisted by many! Management could care less until there is a fatality & then let's just say too late! Police detail is needed here!

Comment Date: 2/8/2014 Name: Anonymous
@ Melee they will make more $$ and not have to deal with all the drunks drama that happens with in! Read the police log plenty there.

Comment Date: 1/24/2014 Name: Manhatten Rubber
@Melee Bowlmor is all about profit & $$$ & with bowling being the "poor" mans sport I am sure things will change here! Bowling a league is and always was a night out for the working person!

Comment Date: 1/21/2014 Name: Melee
Soon this will be purely an entertainment place!

Sooner than you think : )

Comment Date: 12/30/2013 Name: Spare & Strike
When is Bowlmor going to change things here?

Comment Date: 12/6/2013 Name: Malo
Maybe they need some details here to stop the over serving!

Comment Date: 11/29/2013 Name: Brunswick
Karma doesn't loose an address.

Comment Date: 11/28/2013 Name: Anonymous
If Bowlmor was smart they would clean house here from the front desk to the back parking lot & everything in between,worse customer service, lanes to fit the cry baby (s), alcohol being overserved...hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

@ Anonymous if the shoe fits wear it!

Comment Date: 1/26/2013 Name: Old timer
The younger generation doesn't appreciate the Champions of the ten pin world. When they bowl they look like "bums" on the lanes! The "old" timers dress accordingly & are true gentleman and bowl the game well.

Comment Date: 1/25/2013 Name: Change???
Hey if AMF plays their cards right they may have more teams from EP Wednesday Night Mens League...teams are not happy!

Comment Date: 11/25/2012 Name: Anonymous
@Four ya got that right! Bowling is a poor mans sport. No $$$ in those prizefunds on any level. It's a blue man collar sport. No pros here in RI, many good bowlers especially the older group of scratch bowlers from the 70's 80's unlike the younger generation hanging out at the lanes here there everywhere...

Comment Date: 11/20/2012 Name: Four
@ Anonymous They are everywhere...Bowling is a poor mans sport always was will be! Glad I quit and took up golf! Happy Holidays!

@Lang's Bowler let's hope they put the right people in place to bring in the bowlers...someone that can bring good quality league's,tournaments and really understands the game of ten pin bowling...unlike the so called managers...

Comment Date: 9/10/2012 Name: Old Timer
@Lang's Bowler avaliable 24-7? Maybe hours of operations...let's just hope their choice(s) knows how to attract the bowlers,so far the Classic League is a good start but a little late to start as many of us already bowl as league play started already...Wish them well as Ed Lang was one of the best owners ever...

Comment Date: 9/8/2012 Name: CRP
Lang's will do well, fresh start,the grandfather knew the game well,the people a real gentleman. Hope the management can attract a new audience and offer the real bowlers could opportunitys with great leagues,tournaments etc...They need an experience team in place that can attract the real bowlers of New England.

Comment Date: 9/8/2012 Name: 8owl2u
@ langsbowler..... I have to agree. Tried the shot today the man at the desk filled me in on everything. They have a kegel walker have and they already started installing the flatscreens. Approaches are nice too :-)

Comment Date: 9/7/2012 Name: Anonymous
@Lang's bowler...they are the exception but then again Ed Lang had a standard unlike no others...

Comment Date: 9/7/2012 Name: Former Employee of Cranston
So Happy to hear about Langs.. Cranston I hope you burn wait you all ready have try training your employees proper customer service skills taking a waitress and making her a shift leader and as well as someone fresh out of high school but dont care about the employees that were there for years and to the DM shove your 7 service standards you know where and plenty of thieves still working there

Comment Date: 9/7/2012 Name: Force
@Carolyn absolutley true...however the private sector has proven they do not care about the bowlers when they change management every 6 months,every year etc...take a good look at EP Lanes! Change change change all about the $$$ no loyalty to good employees. Sad

Comment Date: 9/6/2012 Name: Lang's Bowler
No corporate bull at Lang's. LOL...I must agree that the new lang's is just awesome and I cannot believe that the people that work there really work and smile, are doing the best job I have seen in long time with customers service. They have the center the cleanest I have ever seen it also. Maybe AMF can learn something by going over there and watch how there management works. The GM and AGM are in the center 24-7 and they smile, talk and our a pleasure to talk to.

Comment Date: 9/4/2012 Name: Merlot'
@Carolyn you are 100% correct...but corporate & some private only care about the $$$

Comment Date: 8/31/2012 Name: Carolyn
lanes & equipment aren't the only things that make a bowling alley a good one. it's the employees that work as a team that makes a solid business. just my thought

Comment Date: 8/28/2012 Name: YES
I agree 100% better than all the local centers...corporate and private...

Comment Date: 8/21/2012 Name: Anonymous

Comment Date: 7/12/2012 Name: JB
Walnut Hill would be my choice...hands on owner, pro-shop opened on location, all good in my view~ Good luck!

Comment Date: 7/12/2012 Name: helloooo
Leaving EP this fall with my team, should I go to Cranston or Walnut Hill? I heard good things about both but leaning towards Woonsocket. I know their pro shop is supposed to be great and they have a good bar but wanted some input from those who know better? thanks.

Comment Date: 7/4/2012 Name: Anonymous
I hope amf cranston goes down simply said this place is horrible

@anonymous insider so are you saying EP never had the right GM? Xplain this cause we were please before November 2011. You agree?

Comment Date: 5/5/2012 Name: Anonymous Insider
@ Birdie. EP Lanes should have picked the right person for the job. They wouldn't be in this mess right now.

Comment Date: 5/5/2012 Name: Anonymous Insider
@ Birdie. More business for Cranston. Oh well. EP Lanes owners should have paid attention.

@Anonymous Insider It would be a miracle if this could happen!

Kathy heard your getting your old leagues back from EP Lanes. They will enjoy the free drinks and extra charges again. Maybe your sister Debbie will come and work with you there once Ed the GM brings EP Lanes down as he did with many others businesses.

Whats with this place? It s*cks rude staff and high prices, as well as all the ghetto people that go in on weekends and sundays is a different country when you walk in there

Comment Date: 3/12/2012 Name: Enough bs
What's with this place now? Not happy on Mondays. Langs or walnut next year for my team, leaning towards Woonsocket. At this point I'd rather drive all the way down to south Kingstown then deal with people that don't care and certain egomaniac bowlers who attempt to s*ck any fun out of the league.

Comment Date: 3/9/2012 Name: All the Way
NO dont get rid of them. Then Kathy will have all the customers for sure .. Bad idea, cops would park outside and pick off all the drunks like a duck shooting contest.

@ New season good luck, glad to hear the positives on the pro-shop.Custom Pro-Fit has been in business over 30 years,lots of experience and the best at what he does! No one knows the game of bolwing like him!

Comment Date: 2/26/2012 Name: EP Bowler
DON'T I SAID DON'T go to EP Lanes, Kathy's twin is there as well as a employee from the AMF staff, as the new GM,AWFUL JUST AWFUL. The "twins" are known for over charging the patrons as they worked as a team! EP failed within 90 days, it's dirty inside and out for real! The new GM has no clue. He is a 9 to 5 clocker! When ever did a GM have set hours? NEVER in the bowling world they work days n nights! NOT Mr. GM EV,no can do! EP has a few unhappy "good" employees (left) among a ton of new hires that do S**T! Shame shame EP,looks like OML & Walnut Hill will blow your center away. AMF also,worse organization ever,and to boot Mr.GM EV used to work for them, go figure! GOOD LUCK Cranston Bowl if I were you I'd head for the Hills & the Mountains!

Comment Date: 2/17/2012 Name: New season
With me next year in Woonsocket with a new ball from their new pro shop. Going where they care about their customers as I've been told by everyone I know who bowls there. No one wants a place that just stagnates because no one listens to us or cares what the people in all our leagues think

Went this past sunday to Cranston Lanes for Ladies Night, What an AMAZING DEAL!! Ladies bowl free and just pay $2 for shoes. Guys pay $7.50 and they bowl all night from 8-11pm! I will definitely be there again soon. The staff was extremely friendly even with the long wait. Once lanes opened up we were immediately placed on lanes!

Thats what you get when you have a bitchy staff at that place i dont recommend that place for anyone Stay away from Cranston

Comment Date: 11/24/2011 Name: Anonymous
I got convinced to move here from OML this year by a couple teammates... and regret it big time as does the rest of my team even the two guys who sold it. OML may be in the middle of renovations but it still blows Cranston away, they have a much much friendlier atmosphere down in Wakefield in Cranston most of the time its like we're bothering them because of this I actually drive from the city down to Wakefield to practice. We will be returning to OML next year and hopefully some of the other unhappy teams will decide to make the drive as well. This bitchy atmosphere also spreads to some of the bowlers there who are the whiniest pack of babies you'll ever meet making excuses about everything from the oil to the phase of the moon, trying to drain all fun out of the game for everyone unless they happen to be striking all night. Cranston: never again.

Never again. NEVER AGAIN! I hate this place. It is ridiculous to pay $3.35 for a game in an AMF center. The staff was very un-friendly. I wish the place would go outta business.

I went there this weekend, The customer service is terrible. It took them forever to cash us out and they made us buy shoes even though other people didnt have to. And it took them 15 minutes to turn on our lanes. Very unprofessional.

as an employee there that place has never been run better in years

This is what you get in a corporate owned facility. They run the place cheap and hire teenagers who could care less about anything but a paycheck. AMF Lang's on the other side of town is no better. Try a privately owned place like East Providence lanes.

I bowl here on Sat. mornings and to answer your questions... the center opens around 11 and the service is excellent! This is the cleanest center around.

BE WARNED! If You Are Buying Food Go Watch It Be Made, They Don't Wash They're Hands Or Hardly Ever Wear Gloves . I Have Visited Some Family Members That Are On A League There & EveryTime ,We've Had To Refuse The Food . The Best Night Was When The Lane Server Dropped The Food & Tried To Serve Someone One The League

I called to find out the basics: hours of operation, cost and to give them the professional curtesy of letting them know in advance that I am coming in with a group of high school students. I'd already scanned all google sites to find said info, to no avail. When I called, the message machine was full. Can you believe that? This has got to mean that they do not check their messages on a daily basis. After reading all the other reviews referring to their second class customer service, I'm not surprised. Too bad. You'd think that the management (new or not) would want folks to tell positive tales...Really too bad. I still don't know when they open. Damn! What am I going to do with my kids?!

You did a terrible job hosting the Pepsi Tournament on March 9, 2008. The hour and a half delay was inexcusable for such an important event. You should have been better prepared. The lanes were not oiled, the change machines were broken so that you couldn't make a purchase in the vending machines and there was no national anthem during the opening ceremony. Very shameful and totally bogus.

how much does it cost? for a lane or person

If you need help or have a problem with the lane you only have to ask them 3 times until they do something!

Customer service is horrible and 4 groups cut me on line when I was waiting. I addressed it to personel and they basically ignored me and I walked out. Really dirty, must be the type of people that go there!!

Cranston Bowl used to be the best, but it is going downhill fast in my opinion. I hope the new manager can save it.

I went to your lanes and had some issues. I feel that I have serious bacterial issues due to the bathrooms of your facility. I will be contacting the owner.
