An embarrassment to bowling. The guy that runs this place thinks he is GOD himself. Puts out an extremely soft league pattern, and even a softer summer "sport" league pattern. Food is horrible, atmosphere is just as bad. Worst of all, the owners mother hangs out all the time pestering all of the league bowlers. STAY AWAY!!!

Family Oriented? Anything remotely close to family oriented went out the window when the Kosicek's sold this place to this clown Ron Lloyd that owns it now. He was fired from AMF for a reason, he's a dishonest individual, if you don't believe me, ask his ex wives!! Treats nobody with respect, including customoers. Everyone should boycott this place. He even sets up the lane machine to his liking, doesn't care what the bowlers think. Cheated his way to the house record as well! If you take him out of his own center, he couldn't find his own ass with either hand!!

What a joke of an establishment. Don't waste your time or money by joining a league in this place. You will not enjoy yourself. Poor atmosphere, poor quality food, filthy restrooms amd bowling area, just totally disgusting overall. Owner is a hypocrite, and is married to a pot hole faced looking midget. Owner is intoxicated 99% of the time while he is present in the place. "Pro Shop" doesn't have regular hours, is very over priced, and does poor quality work. Owner couldn't fit or , measure me to a new ball, missed my span by a 1/4"! Save yourself a headacheand avoid this place, im going back to lake county!

how much did the proprietor pay you to post that comment? New wife, same results. If you cant get along with your spouse in very public place of business, then i suggest you sell or close the bowling center. you wonder why you league play is down so much, it's because people get sick of hearing the arguments and seeing your tantrums, as well as seeing your stinky old mother harrass all the bowlers. I can see why AMF axed you, i wouldnt want such a drunken individual representing my company. furthermore, this guy cant bowl for nuts outside of his own bowling center. sets the lane machine to his liking, and talks bad upon other houses in the area because he doesnt know how to adjust. he hates kids and discourages the childrens leagues from coming there, so much for your bowling centers already bleek future... Regards, LMAO

New old lady, same old results, owners continue to fight argue etc etc during business hours and in front of customers. they have all but killed this place. I doubt it will be open in 5 more years!! prices are too high, employees are rude, couches in bowlers area suck, lane conditions are so easy a 12yr old almost shot 800!! this is why bowling is dead!

I am a new bowler who has bowled 1-2 times a year for many years. A friend got me involved in a league at Sonny's and I just wanted to relate how wonderful everything has been. The owner, Ron, made accommodations to fit and drill a ball to my measurements and the staff and other league members have been very welcoming. The atmosphere is almost family like due to the alley's rural location and everyone seems to know everyone. Food is great and it is always fun to catch their open bowling hours. I have also witnessed people have kids birthdays there and the staff does a great job. I am so glad that my first real bowling experience was at Sonny's.

This center is the best in the business. The ownership is GREAT! I cannot say enough good things about Jolly Lanes. The place ROCKS!!

Please don't let the critique of one disgruntled customer influence your opinion of our center. We strive to maintain a clean facility with good food, cold beer and fair prices. Our Proshop has limited hours because of the small size and my work schedule. Our oiling pattern is leagal by USBC rules and anyone is welcome to come check. I admit at the end of a season my wife and I can get testy with each other but this is not typical. If someone on our staff was rude to a customer I want to know about it. You can send your comments directly to me at Regards, Ron Lloyd

very rude staff, they have the "to bad, my way or the highway" attitude. Pro shop is NEVER open regular hours. These people should sell, because they are driving people away from the game. They think because of easy lanes, that people will stay. This season they have 14 award scores, and the owner has 7 or 8 of them himself, and he's not nearly that good. I've never bowled in a place where the owners(husband and wife) continuously fight every day in front of customers! Very bad for business.

Ridiculous bowling center. The lane conditions are do easy the house should be fined. The staff is extremely rude. Pro shop is open when it wants to be. Prices are too high also!
