Nicole, sorry for your bad experience with getting a water! I would welcome a phone call to discuss this with you. Thanks!

Nice facility but unfortunately the staff is very unprofessional. The manager of the restaurant/bar as well as the bartender were absolutely rude and very slow. It took me 15 minutes to get water because the bartender decided the dishes were more important than my order. I will never do business here again and I will share this experience with as many people as I can. This was the worse service EVER!

Wow has this place changed the past year!!! Scores are awesome and the league never has to move.. The machines run very well now..

We do appreciate our league bowlers very much. We have had ALOT of 300 this year! So many that they we had to squeeze more on the honor board! I personally would like to apoligize for the delay of updating the scores on the website, however they are posted at the center weekly!

I would like to hear from Maxine Lee Tarpley. Her father taught me to bowl in the early 60’s in Orland & Corning. I believe this is the same Cliff if Maxine has a sister Linda. I live in Chico, Ca and can be found in the phone book. Maxine I also remember you. You might remember my brother Major.

Did you ever notice that they keep their website up to date on the bar and restaurant…yet do nothing to keep the bowling sections up to date??? Come one…didn’t someone break the house record??? They do not care about league bowlers…never will!

Seriously, I would be surprised if this really happened. It would be great news. It would take someone ready to make an investment in new pinsetters and lanes. Can’t keep putting lipstick on the pig!

No have not heard about this as of yet– but as you say THIS WOULD be great that someone really wants to actually “owned and manage on site” this is a beatiful center– the BEST one in the county in my opinion–it really needs somebody with heart and experience I think it would surive and flourish nicely and be family oriented.

rumor is from the other centers in town that a couple from the mid west experienced in bowling center management and real long term ownership is looking at Signature, also having one of the best proshop operator in the mid west coming also. this would be great it is it true. Anyone else hear this?

Would love to hear from Maxine Lee, Cliff Tarpley’s daughter. My email address is: {Sorry, no personal email addresses allowed – B2U Staff}.

We love to bring our family to Signature! The staff is nice and helpful and the food is awesome!

Changes, Changes, Changes…must be another bowling season at Signature! Bowlers should give the other houses a chance whose owners actually care about them by being there!!!

Everyone please stop this stuff. We need people to support bowling in Elkhart. This is a great sport and activity for everyone. Each center in Elkhart/Goshen has something to offer. I encourage you to try the different houses for league bowling.

Patty and her husband own the pro shop and are the couple trying to buy Signature. So I appreciate your correction. So I will restate, “Why do the people buying Signature Lanes feel the Scratch Leage needs an extra $1000 prize fund, with 8 teams and our mixed league on the same night which always has more teams gets nothing?” This information came from Signature’s website and is now deleted along with the flyer!

Signature Lanes ROCKS! They have great prices, great food, a big arcade and nice employees. I think its the best bowling center in Elkhart! I am a regular customer and I must say the whole center is so much better than it has been in a long time.

To set the record straight….Bowler’s Edge Pro Shop located inside Signature Lanes is sponsoring the league this year. Andy, why don’t you talk to Patty Ann, she will be glad to explain it to you.

Comment Date: 9/23/2009 Name: andy1
Was wondering why our league did not get $1000 for its prize fund from the owners? Are scratch bowlers just better customers?

Comment Date: 8/26/2009 Name: andy1
What the research shows is that the current managers try to buy centers, then back out after so many months. Beware this has happened with these two people in South Bend and Merriville.

check out this site about the new managers – how long do you think they will stay. your league should think twice before going there.b {**Note -Sorry – We can’t allow this link – B2U Staff}

Sounds like another change in management at Signature. Is that the Signature way? Why all the changes every year? League bowlers are getting tired of this stuff. Who can we believe?

The bowling center is top notch with great pricing through the week and specials on the weekends. Very family friendly with great bowling lessons available. Nice proshop with great guy who has been in bowling across the country forever. The staff has alot of bowling knowledge and background. Good food in the resturant and snack bar. They also have a full bar seperate from the center with kitchen. Beer on tap with mixed drinks available. We were recently in the bar after bowling and had a awesome time. New staff and manager at the bar and they also have a D.J playing request music every Fri. and Sat. nite. I give it a thumbs up. Had a great time and will be back again. Also heard they will be doing some special events this summer.

Anyone passing bad comments about this place is ridiculous. All bowling alleys have high prices, which is why anyone with common sense will go during the times it only cost a dollar per game. This facility holds one of the top ball drillers and instructor in the country and they have great lanes. If you’re going to post a negative comment, don’t BASE it off of your personal opinion. Base it off of the facts.

This place is serious about bowling! Lessons are great and they now have the best pro shop around. Look forward to bringing my team there next season.

Too bad people can’t associate good scores with good bowling anymore! And don’t even get me started on business ethics!!

Comment Date: 4/25/2008 Name: Me
Priced way too high!!!! Rainbo is much better. Also, alot of drama takes place in the bar and the parking lot. Looking fo a fight, then go there.

Comment Date: 12/25/2007 Name: Anonymous
The place gets better every day! Scott and his staff really care about the bowlers.

I want to thank Jon for a great time that was had by all at the Semi-State Tournament. Great lane conditions and wow, the scores were great.
