Used to be the friendly place to bowl not now, went with my family 4 kids and 3 adults pre-paid for 2 games each with shoes close to 80 bucks. Had an accident and cut my finger bad before the first turn and we had to leave, our group was told no refunds!! choke on the money you butt wads

Very nice place to bowl. Everyone is very helpful. Except for a rude asian lady that was at the desk with some tall fat guy with glasses who was following her like a puppy dog. Had to get food else where, coffee shop was closed. lanes were nice and bathrooms were clean.Prices are WAY to high.

the overall condition of the lanes have been getting better in recent months, while the entertainment factor can’t be beat. great family fun.

Lanes are like bowling uphill then downhill.

Comment Date: 3/22/2009 Name: David
Lanes are pretty good. Have had the ball return scratch and gouge a couple of my balls. Inconsistent action with different lanes. Pizzaman eatery there is to be avoided. Prices have shot up way to high in the past couple years. I shouldn’t have to pay anything over $3.00 per game during week days or “off” hours. Not enough special discounts for non-peak time play. They also need to overhaul their house ball stock. That being said I would recommend this place for casual bowlers and those wanting to join in on casual league play. Employees are nice and helpful aswell.

price is wonderful. 5 stars!

these lanes are a joke! especially the owner! the guy is so tight with his money, that he wont even put the effort into fixing the lanes! my grandma could make these lanes better! he charges to much, and the lanes stink! i dont reccomend people to come here. i would reccomend double decker lanes in rohnert park. better lanes, and the staff is awsome! so boycott this place! it s*cks big time!

What I would like to see is more of a consistent shot out there. It feels like a travel league. I have been bowling there for many years but I Will not return there in th 07 season…

I’ve bowled in this bowling center for 3 years for the Northern California Special Olympics, and thanks to the staff at this bowling alley, I won 3 divisional gold medals for the Napa Valley Special Olympics and I’ll never forget about winning gold medals here at this wonderful bowling center, my high game here I bowled here was a 218 in 2003 when I got the gold medal and the high game during the state tournament in 2003, thanks for supporting Northern California Special Olympics.

Okay already, so its a little expensive. Try going to the movies…and you can have a drink while bowling!!!

The bowling alley is ok but working there is a bitch because they don’t pay enough for you to work there. And the people there are punks.

Comment Date: 9/27/2005 Name: owns
Come on give them a break. This is my home away from home… if the prices are too high get a better job.

Comment Date: 6/18/2005 Name: lynne
Figure your PG&E; bill and times it about $20000 -is what it costs to run the lanes in the bowling alley. That is why the cost is high to bowl.

Comment Date: 6/6/2005 Name: jim
Lower your prices. It costs way too much! And fix the workers, all the old people are grouchy. And the prices are too high, if I didn’t already mention that.

Comment Date: 3/9/2005 Name: mel
Accesible and easy to find and park; too expensive and poor shoe rentals.

Comment Date: 3/4/2005 Name: David
This place is crappy. On top of overpriced bowling, all the games in the arcade are broken and they won’t give refunds. Half the time you will only get 3 tokens from their token machine -they won’t refund you. The food is horrible there they constantly make mistakes. On a scale of one to ten it gets a 2.

The bowling is a great place to go with your family but the prices are just way too high!

Comment Date: 10/9/2004 Name: striker
This is the place that time forgot….EXCEPT for the prices…I couldn’t believe how high they were…and no specials.

Comment Date: 9/30/2004 Name: Anonymous
I agree with everyone. The place is way too expensive.

Comment Date: 9/21/2004 Name: Claudia
Bowling is fun for the whole family but I agree with the other comments that it is just way too costly to do on a regular basis. It’s too bad. Is it the upkeep, or why is it so expensive?

Comment Date: 7/9/2004 Name: Scott
How about lowering prices guys?? Sounds like alot more business could be done. How about some coupons or something?

Comment Date: 5/15/2004 Name: Zach
The bowling is so much fun, but the prices are just too high, if it was lower I would bowl even more, but since it’s too high I just go once in a while.

It’s a great place, but the prices are too high.
