This place is broken to pieces. The bathrooms are terrible and the food is disgusting.The people are in no way friendly. Unprofessional. Please sell the place to some good people who will take care of it and maybe we can have a nice place to bowl one day.

My nephew who is 4 is addicted to bowling on the WII and loves going to ‘alley bowl’ all the time.

You cant beat the price on Tuesdays but the people that work at the bowling alley are the most Unfriendliest bunch of people ever. EVER!

This may not be the greatest bowling alley in the world, But it is the best place in this town to take your family for an evening of fun for a nominal price. I have been bowling in Talladega for the past 29 years and this alley now is run very effectively and for the most part the best operators to date: The lanes have been improved for the most part and it pleases 90 + percent of the bowlers, but as usual we have a few (PRO’s) that think they sould get a strike every time they throw the ball and when they don’t that blame the approach or the lane oil or something bu nevery them selves. Thanks Tina and Randy, EJ and Brandi for doing a great job.

What a huge improvement over the last two years! The lanes are really improved, the music has improved, the staff is really friendly and helpful. Plus the prices are great! We will make the 31 mile drive to bowl here from now as long as things stay the same as they are. Great job guys!

This center has security on the weekends to help with crowd control. I believe that the staff do all that is necessary and possible to ensure a safe environment. As with anyplace where young people “hang out” you will have the occasional incident. I was at this facility the night “Concerned Mother” mentioned and as far as I remember – the staff and many adults in the area separated the young men before anything could take place aside from the taunting. All available staff were able to eliminate a large incident before anything could happen – no one “stood by and did nothing” as far as I am concered. So a thank you to the staff for being vigilant.
This center offers great deals most all days of the week – they are by far one of the lowest priced bowling centers in the area.

I usually take my young son there for his Birthday but not anymore. After what I experienced with my teenage son this place is not for families or anyone not related to said owners. For an owner or worker to stand by and let a young boy get jumped on by 5 or more people is outrageous and illegal. Then to let others tape it is just immature and irresponsible. Anyone in Talladega with a business should be concerned with getting our children off the streets and away from drugs with a safe and fun environment. The Talladega Family Bowling Center is not that place. I take my family elsewhere and I will recommend others to do the same.

We have found that this is one of the most enjoyable places to go. For a fun filled night I would recomend it to anyone. We love the staff and the great food. The bacon covered hotdogs are to die for, and the burgers are awesume.
The new lanes are great and shoes are nice too.

I had the pleasure of going to the new Talladega Bowling Center and I must say the new owner and staff have made a so-so center into a safe and pleasurable center. The new owner has made numerous improvements and the center now looks like a real bowling center. The staff goes out of their way to make you feel at home. They have added a pro shop and the owner (barry) gives lessons at no charge. The cosmic bowling is great and at a great price. I recommend this center for families and league bowling. They now serve food and beer at reasonable prices. The food is good!

I said that I was not going back on Saturday nights, but I did. My hats off to the management and staff. They have made improvements. I do wish they would play more country music.

Comment Date: 3/25/2007 Name: Lisa
I like the place for the price but their are two
things I did not like the music and the somkeing
because I have bad allergys and when I come that bothers me the other places they make you go out side to smoke but over all everything is looking good.Thanks for the improvements in the last three weeks I will be back. Thanks Lisa

The prices are great,forty dollars for four hours on Saturday night. That is the only thing that is great about this place. The lanes are not good. You can’t even see the arrows during glow bowl. You can bowl a lot of times and knock down two pins and it will give you a strike. The lanes look like they have sand on them. The music they play is very bad. Smoking is allowed.The bathroom doors are made out of waffer board. It may be different on Friday nights, but on Saturday nights I won’t take the family anymore.

I visit this center weekly and I have been doing that for about 8 years now. It was a great center until 2 guys took it over for a couple of years and it went down(the ones that own Anniston, I think) then I guess they lost it,(sure am glad their gone) and now it has new owners. Owners that actually care for the customer. The lanes are always clean, big clean atmosphere. Great Leagues and WOW!!! What a cosmic deal you get with this center. They have down time every once in a while, but not like most ceners I’ve been to, and if you have a problem here they make sure, your ok and try to make you Happy about the situation before you leave. The group and I love going there and are now supporting it in any way we can. The prices are awesome, beats anyones around, so I don’t even try to drive and waste gas. This center is the bomb, especially the workers, their GREAT to be around…Try it or give them a call and check out their glow bowl.. Good site you guys…Thanks

Thanks Lynn Wells for your comment, We do have a great center now, but what do you need a teacher for you don’t bowl..

This is not really the best bowling center, but the staff is really nice and friendly, and the prices are reasonable. The equipment is not the best in the world, and something is usually broken down but the new management is better about fixing it. They have actual wooden lanes instead of synthetic, and generally they are pretty good about keeping them conditioned. The snackbar is very substandard, they don’t have much variety to choose from and they are usually out of everything. We bowl there a lot because it is the closest to where we live, and allthough its not the greatest facility I’ve ever been to, it is a pretty good value.
