tough shot, interesting house located in a rural area, the equipment they use is unique but a little outdated, if ur looking for a challenge i recommend paying this place a visit.

It means that he is always tending to his kids and fixing their balls, he has no time for the paying client. Typical NewMilfordite cannot understand anything.

what does having 50 kids bowl have anything to do with the guy being rude?

Comment Date: 12/12/2007 Name: Joe
Yes, the guy in the proshop is so rude. If he didnt have 50 kids bowling, he could pay more attention to the customers. The rest of the bowling alley is fine.

Lore’s lanes is a very nice place. The staff is great. The lanes are great. The only faults are that you cannot bring in your own food and the rude grumpy guy with the mustache in the Pro-shop.

Lore’s Lanes is one of the best bowling alleys there is! I bowl in the Junior league on Saturday mornings and also on Sunday mornings in the adult/junior league. The staff there is amazing. Josh is hilarious and so kind to me and everyone else. Such a sweetheart. Austin is sweet to. Quiet sometimes but always has a kind thing to say when you see him. The snackbar is awesome. Sue is so sweet and kind. She’s known me pretty much my whole life and I’m glad that she is a part of my life. Her food is tops. And at a very reasonable price. Jason is one of the nicest people you’ll meet and is an excellent employee. Overall…lores is the best. And I would know…i’m there thursday friday saturday and sunday.

Lores lanes is a great bowling alley! the snackbar is some great eating. you could tell from one day in the bowling alley the staff takes great care into what they do. The women at the snackbar has such a passion for acomidating the public and does it to the best of her ability. The prices at the bowling alley are cheap enough but the prices at the snackbar are too cheap for the effort put into the food the lady does not get enough money for her labor. so all the people who want to hate on the bowling alley go else where yur negativity is not wanted

I love to bowl, I live at Lores Lanes. {deleted humorous but inappropriate comment – nice try though}

We like Lores Lanes. The people are nice, and the pro shop is good, although the hours aren’t great. The snack bar is tops, with homemade food.
This place is clean and comfortable. I don’t drink but noticed the bar is affordable.

We love Lore’s Lanes. The staff is so nice and attentive. They are a friendly, and a fun group of people. The snack bar is wonderful, and very affordable for the quality they offer. Lore’s Lanes is our families first choice for a family fun night!

I met the new manager of Lore’s Lanes and he is a great guy who seems to care about the bowling public. The Pro-shop leaves alot to be desired, unless you want to wait a month to get a new ball. Overall, its a great bowling experience for the whole family.

I wear underwear on my head when I bowl. No one says anything to me. It’s nice. I like.

Well let just say if Marcel does to this place what he did to Laurel lanes,he’ll have 26 lanes for him and his friends to practice on….

Oh man do i love lores lanes nothing like a hottie at the snackbar now that is some good food. The women that runs the snackbar is always Happy Sweet and very very generous. The staff at lores lanes couldn’t get much better. Marcel is a professional in every aspect of a bowling center. Its deffenately the center of my familys choice. And may i add that no other bowling center does the baking on site. And boy are the bake goods great. So for all of you who thinks the bowling alley s*cks then you obviously don’t know the place so go somewhere else then

I love the tv screens they have with the cartoons on it and the little tv station screen in the corner of the screen you can watch tv while you wait to bowl.

I have been to this place several times and the food is the best bowling alley food I have ever had! I also is very clean, and good for families. Everyone who works there is very nice and accommodating.

I love Lores Lanes….
the food is awesome…..
Cody is the best! Jason is a hottie… and flips those burgers with the greatest ability I’ve ever seen….
The bar is kinda tiny, but thats alright!
It’s a small alley but sometimes it’s comforting… Erik is cool… Louis is there and I love him 🙂 lol. Katie now works the bar and snackbar??? What next, the mechanic and then the bar…. at least she is an awesome person and kicks butt. Kevin is the best little bowler I have ever seen… he’ll probably go pro…..
Sue’s snackbar is top of the line, never seen much better. Bob and Laurie are cool owners! The owners at other bowling alleys are mean and s*ck…
So go down to Lores Lanes – 145D Danbury Road, get a lane, pair of shoes, sip some Bacardi and buy a hotdog! It’s all there at the Lore’s Lanes!

This bowling center is a joke. The staff is rude and acts as if your only a number to them. The food is way over priced at the snack bar. They have a beast for a bartender, no joke she could be the bride of frankenstein. The roof is STILL falling apart. The scoring system is riddled with bugs. And the house is way too easy. Normal houses I carry a 180 average. I go there and can carry a 210 easily.

Those lanes s*ck. They’re awful, they break down every 5 minutes and they still make you pay for the game. The food is rather expensive too.

I was just there for traveling team. The place s*cks if you ask me. They only have 26 lanes. think and that’s not big enough to have a league. It’s so small and crowded. They need to build on or something.

I was just here at Lore’s lanes last week. The place is a pit. If the building is not that old they should get a refund from the people who built it.. The roof is still leaking.

Comment Date: 7/30/2004 Name: Anonymous
Boring bowling alley.. Just a walk up bar.. No sit down lounge. No meeting room facilities. Last time I was there a few ceiling tiles were caved in and they had a bucket on one of the lanes to catch water from the roof leak. Hmm.. Building is only 3 years old. Mendes Automatic Scoring is bug ridden program.
