One of the cleanest bowling centers. I’ve been to ever. They have great specials weeknights but you can get coupons at their website and bowl for up to 75% off! Overall a great experience!

I like Lanes, they are good quality. Their food is awesome….I think those are the best burgers around. Their prices are pretty bad, but that’s why I go a lot in the summer, when it’s 99 cent games! The people there are friendly to me all the time.

I would not recommend ANYONE to go there.
Their customer service was horrible. We stood in line waiting for this tall old man to finally turn around. We asked him if their were any lanes avaiable his reply was you have to be done in 45 mins. i have a birthday party. Its was his attitude and his way of saying it, that I wouldn’t give him the business.
I had a party of 12 but I guess his priority was a birthday party.

I enjoy bowling at this center. It has a great down-and-in shot and good atmosphere. I like bringing friends and family from out of town to this center.

I love it at Empire Bowl. Of all the centers in the Inland Empire I’d have to say that Empire has the best prices, the best looking center, and the nicest employees. I wouldn’t choose any other bowling center over this one.

Comment Date: 2/24/2012 Name: Purple Turtles League @ Empire Bowl in Redlands
Great place to bowl league, great place to practice too, and just a great place overall. The center is always clean. The staff is always friendly and courteous. Keep up the good work.

I love working at Empire Bowl in Redlands, California!

Comment Date: 1/6/2010 Name: To Mr. 250
No man, not only he is stupid. He can’t add either. I saw his posting at other bowling center as well. Dude, 41 + 250 = 291. You need 9 more pins. so next time, say you are Mr. 259, Ok?

Comment Date: 1/2/2010 Name: For Mr. 250
Dude, didn’t you see…. He said Bowler Dud 41. He meant he bowl 41, need about 250 more to make 300!

Comment Date: 11/19/2009 Name: Mr. 250
Are you sure? 250 All The Time? Boy, you are better than PBA Pros…… Wow, Join league with us, you should be the star of our bowling leagues here at Empire. Oh! You mean, you don’t average 250? Just joking? OK! Please don’t bowl here if you don’t like our house! BYE!

Comment Date: 7/23/2009 Name: BOWLERDUDE41
hi folks. if you cant score on theses easy floors you have no right bowling. i mean any moron can average 250 with a blindfold. thank you have a nice bloody day at empire floors

I am so happy they remodeled the bowling center.
I love the US Bowling Scoring System just like
the one at ABC Bowl. If you live near Redlands,
you should give this bowling center a try.
I love it.

I Still go to Empire Bowl all the time. Sometimes
AMF Arrowhead Lanes in San Bernardino. I find
the pricing ok for seniors and league bowlers.
The cost is $3.50 per game for seniors and league bowlers. I guess if you don’t go there often or are not a senior or league bowler,
you wouldn’t know there prices. I have no
problems with anything at Empire Bowl and
the new scratch leagues are great too.
Try it, you’ll like it!!!

I had a wonderful experience, when i took my family to bowl. I found they had remodeled the whole center, it looks beautiful, and the service was great. It is a real family center.

Empire Bowl in the best center around. The new remodel is fantastic and so clean. Customer service is the best ever and I love to bowl at Empire Bowl.

Comment Date: 10/18/2007 Name: We Love this Center but………..
We love this center so much because we bowled here since we were in kindergarden! Lots of history here and we will never change. The police need to do a better job taking care of the gangs here or as Bud said, it is a bit scary to bowl here now! I heard they are putting up new scoring system like that of ABC Moreno Valley Bowl for the Cosmic Bowling. I think it is wonderful that Empire is doing that to update their system. I have tried ABC Moreno Valley bowl when Empire is too busy and loved it! Go Empire, you put it up, WE Will come! Love you guys forever!

I have found if you have someone stake out the parking lot and let you know when the lot is clear, you have a 23% better chance making it in the center without injury from the local gangs. I have also noticed if you can bowl with a bullet proof vest your scores are lower but you have a 41% better chance making back to your car alive. Usually you can buy back anything you have had stolen locally, from the guys that hang out in the parking lot. I would feel better bowling here if I felt at all safe. Until I can get a firearms carry permit, I wont return.

Their customer service s*cks! They need to work on providing “better” customer service and learn how to work as a team.

Comment Date: 1/13/2005 Name: Jill
There are so many younger people there that just get drunk and try to fight everyone. They cuss in front of young kids and have no respect for people trying to bowl.

Comment Date: 4/2/2004 Name: Kevin
They are jerks to their customers and they are too expensive. Don’t go there.
