Excellent place to bowl, really nice, capable staff and a roomy feeling compared to the few other remaining places outside military bases. Good prices, fully equipped alleys, good fun.

Bowling at Pali lanes is fun, it feels like home. It is the last true bowling alley on the Windward side, K=bay difficult to get on base. I hope it stays open forever. Snack bar could use an uplift, but for the price and amount of food you receive, not bad. May there be many years of bowling, fun and drinks and many years of good health to the staff and management of Pali lanes. KEEP PALI ALIVE. HOORAH.

Aaron, Rose and rest of staff are awesome people. God Bless Pali Lanes is still around. Aiea and Leeward get sassy-*** customer service.
Couple gripes: (1) Why Rob salty all da time? Would it hurt braddah to flash da grill? (2) Fix da A/C!

Lanes holding up well. Great atmosphere. Courteous staff. Needs better lighting in parking lot. Keep up the good work Uncle Art.

Thanks Uncle Art and friends for keeping Pali lanes open. This is the last public bowling alley on the Windward side and hope it stays open for a long time. Only one negative, the restaurant. Needs to be given an uplift and the food does not taste good. Too bad it couldn’t be like Aiea bowl’s upscale dining experience. But hey, it’s only a bowling alley.

Wonderful bowling experience. Bowled recently and the lanes held up well. Oil patterns seems well maintainted. I’m glad they kept it open and hope it will stay open permanently. This is the last alley standing on the Windward side. Just wish they could add a little more spunk to the atmosphere like Aiea bowl.

I am a avid bowler, I am currently bowling in three bowling leagues. I bowl in a 20 team league at Pali Lanes and two smaller leagues at two other local bowling alleys. We’re into our 16th week at Pali, the other two I’ve been bowling for 2 and 3 seasons! I must say that the lane maintenance at Pali is outstanding in comparison to the other two alleys that I bowl at
where breakdowns occur often enough that 3-5 hours has become the norm for some of the league bowlers to finish their games each week!
I would also like to say that since I last bowled at Pali Lanes, which was before it closed, and now since they re-opened the difference in customer service is like night and day!! Where previously you, (the customer) were treated like a non entity, ignored until you stood in front of desk! Now you’re greeted with a Hi!, Hello or acknowledged in some form by everyone that works at the desk! At least the four that I’ve encountered! All I can say is the new owners can be proud of their Management and Staff and I and many of my fellow bowlers (100+) would definitely like to see Pali Lanes remain for future generations of families and bowlers!

I think there are new owners at pali lanes, because it seems like there have been some staffing changes and it just feels…better somehow. People smile at you when you walk in now, and even tho yeah it’s an old building, our family was treated kindly and with respect when we went last week. Something good is finally going on at Pali Lanes.

i can expect the place to be alittle dirty because of it being so old but the girls at the front desk are really b*tchy and not helpful at all. we asked for a simple request to change our lane so we could play next to our friends and one of the girls said “no once we assign you a lane you cant move” in a b*cthy way. no suggestions no solutions no apologizing and saying im sorry but we cant. instead she just gave us a really b*tchy attitude.

We formed the Stars and Stripes league in the late 60s early 70s. Just want to know if they are still there.

the fat young lady at the desk was very rude. wanted to get change so i could get a snack for my kids but the fat lady told me wait wait for what i saw her s*ckin face with another chick but geezzz customers should come first before her girlfriend they even shut down the alley at 1030 when it says they stay open till 1130 they should hire a better worker no sense to tell the general manager she wont do anything about it they must have a SPECIAL bond if you know what i mean

They dont even deserve 1 star!! I just called for information and the General Manager JEAN was very rude, inconsiderate, and had absolutely no customer service skills….. No wonder they are closing down she cant handle a phone call properly…. anyone who wants to feel like {deleted} call pali lanes and ask for JEAN !!!!

Just called to ask about Cosmic Bowling wanted to have my sons birthday party their. Gentlemen that answered the phone seemed to have no idea what it was or what time Cosmic Bowling starts? Hmmm, maybe they should let their employees know their services they offer!

The person who answers your phones (female). Should learn some phone etiquettes.
