Response: Though an avid bowler, I am mostly secluded to Capital (local) and I have been bowling there 20+ years in addition to others including collegiate. The new management, as with all newly managed business, come into unforeseen problems and issues that were leftover from prior management. I have seen many ups and downs in the facility, but on a positive note, they have added new scoring programs with ball speedometers, new seating on the floor, and they work with league bowlers to discuss and resolve oil/lane conditions and most importantly, they respond to feedback and value our input. For that, I commend the new management and look forward to every Wednesday night. Sincerely, Eric Daniels

Hi Jennifer - I am very sorry for your experience at one of our centers, and the management you speak of has been removed. I would like the chance to make it up to you. Please contact me at Fern Bowl at 502.239.6170 so I may take care of this situation with you. Thank you for voicing your concerns.

This is the worst managed bowling alley I have ever been to. Nothjng worked properly they were out of shoes but charge me for them anyway and after two lanes we were put on messed up our scores and gave everyone strikes even people who ha not bowle we asked for our money back only to be told no refunds. We were then told by the employee who wouldn't move from his seat that he could do nothjng and couldn't contact us with any management at all. We could call back during the week. I can't believe your business is still open. I will never be back and will tell everyone I know about this experience. $60 spent for no shoes and broken lanes where we couldn't even bowl a game.

What improvements I have seen since new management has taken over at Capital Bowl in Frankfort Kentucky! The staff as cleaned the facility and customer service is awesome! My family hadn't bowled here in a very long time and when we heard of new onwership and staff decided to check it out. So happy to see things changing and will be bring our family back here more often. I left bowling leagues here a few years ago and am now looking into rejoining leagues again! Great job!!!!

Best bowling center I have been took. Great manager and staff. Nice place to bowl and good food too, what else can you ask for.

I thought this was one of the best bowling places i have visited, and will be coming back to in the future. The Manager is polite and helpful and knows what he is talking about when it comes to bowling, which is more than i can say for most bolwing centers. I like the staff too, they are friendly and helpful and the food is good too. So without a doubt I rate this bolwing centre one of the best I have been too and give it a five star rating.

nice place to bowl but needs some updating. Also it could be a safer/better place for kids. And maybe some friendlyier service.

Visited there for a company Easter party. The person behind the counter acted as though he could care less about us. The smell of smoke was overwhelming. Even the worker was smoking. It was a program for children getting to visit with the Easter bunny, there was even newborns there. I hope this company will pick a different location next year. Also no tissue in ladies room, 1 would not flush, one wobbled so bad, it was unusable. To the owner, you really need to work on your business, you have lost mine!

Upon opening on a saturday..took the gkids, the rest room was not clean, the guy behind the counter was not friendly or helpful..If I had known there was smoking allowed we would not have gone there...It was awful. We will never never go back!!!!

I am so sick and tired of all the league bowlers from capital bowl coming to the city tourny with their high handicaps. This bowling alley s*cks so bad it takes someone that would average a 220 and turns them into a 180 bowler. LABA needs to reclassify their handicap for tournys. Now on to the bowlers.......a bunch of no class drunks. They have the lamest high five routine in which they hug and slap hands over and over. I overheard one guy complaing that someone "stole" his rosen bag. Clearly he was too drunk to realize where he placed it. He made himself look like a clown. There are some nice people that bowl there but they are overshadowed by the clowns.

Just got back into bowling and went to CAPITAL BOWL, driving up to this place it looks a little dated, but as you walk inside what a surprise, bathrooms look new, place smells fresh and looks clean,good first impression. Talked to the manager of the facility, and was asking him about leagues, and availibilty for the summer and fall league as I was just moving to frankfort. He was extremly helpful, let me know the league schedules for the fall and summer, and said that all the information for the upcoming fall leagues would be out within a few weeks, and if I needed any more information to just give him a call and he would be happy to help. The young woman behind the desk, who I was introuduced to was the managers wife, she also let me know about all their open bowling specials and was really helpful setting me up on my lane. Had a great experiance, friendly people, look forward to coming back.

need new manager!! other then that the place had gotten new bath rooms and its nice. some new ball returns ,but if they just get rid of the manager and some woman that works the day shift that is stupid then that place will be wonderful. Just go out night . this is when you have friendly staff that works there. Also that shot is great. And there is a great snack bar.

Could be cleaner. Friendlier manager. Equipment is outdated.
