Sunset bowling. The place in itself is fun, but if yoy want to be treated like dirt and constantly harassed by the old lady who is the night manager I suggest you DO NOT go. My friends and I like to go there every weekend to bowl and play pool and every night we’re there, the EXTREMELY rude night manager tries to find a way to kick us out. One night she came up to me when my friends and I were bowling and asked me if I had my bowling shoes on, HALFWAY THROUGH our game. What else would I have on! Cleets?! We also tried to reserve a lane for thunder night, she couldnt get my friends name right, which is a simple simple name, and gave US attitude about it. They also have a pool table area with about seven tables and only four chairs which are in use more than half the time. No one wants to sit on their dirty floor so we sat on the edge of the wall and got yelled at for sitting up there even though there was no where else to sit. They refuse to serve any kind of drinks after 9pm so you have to buy their overly priced vending machine drinks. AWFUL AWFUL place if you want to have an enjoyable evening with your friends and family in the cda area I STRONGLY suggest you find another bowling alley.

Well, the comments are consistent.. Your sports bar Turkey Shoot. I went today to watch the Chargers. I asked for the Charger game to be put on with previous customers before me had already asked, but I was told she couldn’t do it.. 5 TV’s were on the 49er game, and seemed like one guy sitting at the bar was TELLING the bartender what to do… This is a sports bar; right???? Does it make any sense to have 5 TV’s on one game and NO TV’s on another game??? The bartender was great, but she was by herself which that in itself was a joke, so I left.. Was going to order food and more drinks but when ONE CUSTOMER seems to be running your place WHY WOULD I EVER COME BACK????? I have been in this business for a long time, and YOU NEED NEW MANAGEMENT!! It’s not rocket science….

First the staff is horrible the people at the front desk are rude. Second, its way to expensive. Thirdly, the place is just plane dirty. When leaving I went down to tell a friend goodbye and the old lady comes down and just starts ripping us up on being down there because we didn’t pay the $15. There is no sign or anything saying you can’t go down there without paying. And when we were trying to figure out the price for bowling the board is so confusing. On side say week 3 something weekend like .75 more sore were like ok lets bowl we go up there and the old lady starts yellin at us pointing to the other side of the board where it holds a whole different set of prices!!! The place was horrible and I would NEVER go back again.

Me and my girlfriend and my two friends go bowling their all the time and the staff is amazing besides the night manager she is out right rude and disrespectful.. The other night me am my girlfriend and our other friends where on a double date and me and my gf where making out and PDA big time and the other couple we where with held hands that’s it and the night manager threatens to kick them out just because thy where holding hands. The night manager is horrible but the rest of the staff is awesome and great food!

The customer service was the worst I have ever experienced! The old lady night manager has no people skills, is extremely rude, and has not tact! It was the first time we had ever bowled there and we waited in line forever. Then when it was our turn to pay she completely ignored us and started helping people ahead of us with our first telling us there is a list and to excuse her while she helped them before us even though we waited our turn. Then she proceeded to get attitude about who in our group would be paying first even though she kept us waiting forever because she is slower then a snail! At this time my boyfriend and I try to explain we brought our own shoes, but she completely disregarded and snapped at us so we paid and she didn’t cover her mouth and coughed all over everyone’s change. Then after we’re halfway through our first game she comes and accuses my boyfriend of wearing street shoes and threatens to kick us out…if she had listened earlier when she was treating us like crap she would have heard us say we brought our own balls and shoes!! So she is slow rude and def…get a new night manager because that was the worst first impression of any business I have ever been to and you should be embarrassed for employing her!! On a good note, besides the cigarette smoke, the drinks were really good and the bartending staff did well!

I go there often. It’s simple and geared for bowling. Best choice in area for bowling, but if want better snacks and all around for your family try Triple Play in Hayden. Better bowling deals here though.

Not sure we will visit this bowling center again. Found that you can not buy soda from the concession stand after 9pm you have to buy from a vending machine however you can buy beer from the bar. Seems backwards to me. Staff was not very friendly. Lady making food was texting the making food did not seem very clean. The cost was to high.

My friends and I have fun there. It is true that it smells smoky. I think that may be from the old days as this is an old facility. Lew is very nice to all of us and we would love to take lessons if someone knows anyone who teaches bowling.

we are all talking about the same place? It is a non-smoking bowling center and the lady up front is awesome. In the time that it was not running I did not bowl anymore but when they started back up I found myself bowling again. This place is great.

As for the prior comment, it is a no smoking (except in the bar) bowling alley now. I like the fact that leagues are avaialable for all age groups just about any day of the week. I also like the fact that there are discount prices for non league bowling for league members.

Sunset would be a great place, I just think that they would fare better if they had a no smoking policy…

Wonderful place to bowl and spend time with friends. New Years party had a live country band who was fabulous (they will be back next year). Service was great. Lots of smiles with a happy atmosphere. I highly recommend checking it out.

This is a great place to bowl, I hope the new owners well and that their mangement team will be great PR people who love the sport and will welcome all its bowlers back.
Management must be a NO 1 to make it a smooth
operating bowling business.
Lane Conditions are the no one priority in making bowling a great fun center with friends.
Looking forward to a new and great sport of bowling into the Coeur D Alene area. Its a family sport, that will provide families an outing together and can bowl together.
Build on family unity and a game of sport together.
Management I hope will meet the needs of all, who share the same goal, make bowling a family recreation center.
Good Luck,
