Have been bowling here for years, since 1983. Have tolerated the staff, but was able to bowl. Tonight, for the first time since 1983, we were told we could not bowl without Bowling Shoes. I had three of my grandkids with me, and one of my daughters. When my kids were young, they never used Bowling shoes. My oldest grandhild is twelve, she is one of eight, so far, and they have never been required to use Bowling shoes. Tonight we just wanted an inexpensive activity for the grandkids tonight, and the “kid” at the counter began to make an issue about renting bowling shoes. I told him we were fine, I had already rented a pair for my daughter, since she was wearing flip flops, but the kids, as usual, wouldn’t need them. He let us go to the lane and start bowling, then sent another “kid” down to tell us we couldn’t bowl without Bowling shoes. They shut off our alley and wouldn’t let us bowl. There are NO signs saying that Bowling shoes are required by all. After 29 years of bowling there, with both kids and grandkids bowling without Bowling shoes, and by the way, no accidents or injuries because of it, we will not be going back.

I went to the AMF bowling alley with my friends one time. I was horrified at the way we were treated. The bowling alley is run by a bunch of evil demons. There is one lady there with short black hair who was one of the meanest people I have ever met. She conveniently forgot to mention certain info about the prices, bumpers, ect. She completely ruined our night and even insulted us. It was a horrible experience and I will NEVER return to woodlake bowl!
a VERY outraged customer

One of the bartenders is very rude – so rude that the waitress was somewhat embarrassed and tried to make up for, which was nice. Ya, the staff is generally not very helpful.

so they got rid of quartermania (a thing 2-3 nights a week that offered 10 dollar entry and 25 cent games). That was the ONLY reason to go to this place. Staff is horrible, the only two people who were cool were the 2 guys behind the counter. But last time I went it was just some old lady who treated us all like {deleted}. RIP Woodlake Bowl

I have been bowling at this place off and on for over 15 years. Just went back after my prior experience (3 years ago) and nothing has changed. The bowling is good but the people who run the establishment are rude and should not be in business. Must be family run because the same rude people have been there for years. From the bar help to the counter they all s*ck. Hope they fold up and new folks buy it out and make it right. Maybe that is what I should do. Oh that takes money. Will bowl at canoga, rocket or even drive to hollywood if I have to.

The faculty of this place treats people like they are animals. I suggest going somewhere else.

This bowling place socks. The Staff treats the custumers like crap. They are a Fraud. I was there on a wednesday night with my Wife and her sister and my sister and they Lied to us. We went in there was a yaung man in front of us that was one of the staff. He did not say anything about closing and I paid $44.00 + $2.00 for 1/2 hour. But befor my game was finishied they anounced that the place was closed. which OUR Game was NOT FINISHED. I Went up to him And told him eather I finish my game or you pay me my $46 dollars back. He said I told you that we are closing in 20 min. I said no you didnt. The the General Manager JAvier Serrano said I heard him say that as well which he was not even there at the time. I call My sister over and said when we came in was the manager here when we were talkning to this guy she said NO. Then the Guy said I told you guys we are closing in 20 min. I Told him you think we are stupid. Why would i pay $46 dollars for 20 min. I told him I dont know About you but I am not stupid to pay $46 for 20 min. Then I took the Managers Card and asked the AMF # so I can make a complain and that is not Enough for them there is more I am going to make a complain at the BBB- Better Business Bureau. You Frauds

Classic bowling alley, cool staff.
25 cent games during quartermania can’t be beat.

The staff treats people like crap. They are incredibly rude. There is only one person there that actually treats me like a human if i new his name i would say it. I really do wish the two older women, usually at the desk would be let go because i cannot stand being treated like an animal.
I have been going bowling at AMF woodlake bowling every wednesday. I have had great times and have broken my top score serveral times but please if anyone reads this comment. staff=crap

Thanks AMF, for keeping the Western style cocktail lounge and original architecture of this classic bowling alley. We appreciate being able to bowl here and love the old school coffee shop with its great food and friendly owners.
