|I didn't realize the lane was shorter, that's why i bowl better there than in other alleys in Pittsburgh.|

|I don't understand all the complaints...
Was there for many tournaments over the last few years. This place is not as bad as everyone seems to think. It seems a lot of effort has gone in to revitalize the business since I started coming.
The owner Frank is a decent guy who puts his customers first. I always enjoy striking up a conversation with him about anything and everything.
The lanes: New Synthetic (about 6 years old). They are a little shorter than most alleys, but still in regulation. The oil is fine, but its a short track. If you throw a short oil shot, you will have no problem in the 220+ range. (about 10 boards each side, I'd say 35-40'). Hit that oil, and there's not mercy.
Lighting: Average, standard bowling atmosphere. A lot better than most of the other Pittsburgh alleys.
Overall: A family friendly place and I always look forward to going back.|

|They need to oil the lanes, been to this place for two tornaments and there is no oil on the lanes at all. The place is dark and needs new bathrooms!! This bowling alley is so NOT the best place I have ever been!!!!!|

|This place is dreaded. The lanes are never oiled on the right side but are flooded on the left. Pins are 5+ years old. There is junk piled everywhere. The place is really dark and not real clean. The mens bathroom is a closet (not kidding).
Come on Frank take some of the poker machine money and buy a new lane machine and clean the place up. |

|Friendly staff, nice group of bowlers in other lanes. Seemed like a family-friendly place. In a mixed neighborhood with free, easy parking. Definitely a nice way to get together with friends or family, especially when weather's bad. I'm not a pro, so the lanes seemed just fine to me. Not sure why someone else was so displeased.|
