Why couldn’t the bartender just stay inside the bar and smoke? Hasn’t he heard about multitasking!?

Star is really a terrible place to go. Prices and specials aren’t good compared to other local centers. Lanes are awful, approaches are even worse. Lots of ball damage occurred the few times I’ve been there. The staff is constantly rude and slow. The owner is not a good owner and isn’t helpful at all. Went into the bar for a drink during City Tournament and was told by another patron that “the bartender is outside smoking, he’ll be back in a few minutes”. Poor customer service, DIRTY atmosphere, decent food…would NOT recommend! Stay away!

Just bowled at Star yesterday. Here are my thoughts:
Pros- great price, clean facility, lanes in good condition
Cons- incredibly loud, concessions staff slow & area did not look clean, ball got bet around badly- I was bowling with a new ball and it sustained several dings, not happy about that
Overall, I would rather pay a little more per game and bowl at Mike Aulby’s Arrowhead- much nicer facility.

maybe if you didnt wear your bowling shoes outside, no one would have to yell at you. Bowling shoes can be ruined if taken outside.
Star lanes is better than it used to be. Way to go Dave

WOW is all I can say with the changes going on at Star Lanes! I bowl there twice a week in league and the new owner is putting a ton of work into the center. It’a cleaner, brighter and lots of new upgrades are going in. My wife and I are impressed! Keep up the good work Dave!!!!!

Last time I went to Star Lanes a guy that worked there was completely rude and disrespectful. We were bowling at the last lane to the left, near the exit doors. My phone rang, so i went out the doors to ba able to hear and be heard, when this man who worked there came outside and started yelling-yes yelling-about how i wore my bowling shoes outside-on accident. I apoligized and went back inside-changed shoes-and returned outside to complete my call. The man came out again and yelled at me for opening the door-the door that was right next to me-and was decorated with a big “exit” sign…I didn’t see my fault-but i came back inside anyways. About 30 minutes later a group of boys left out of those doors, wearing their bowling shoes, and returned a while later. The man said nothing so I went back outside to have a cigarette and a police officer came running towards me and got in my face about how if i didn’t listen he would kick me out. The place is just ridiculous and I’ll never go there again.
My advice-Don’t even waste your time on this place.

Star Lanes has been our bowling home for 8 years to our two leagues (winter & summer), and for all that time has had the greatest staff anywhere. They have assisted us over the years with a viriaty of things related with our league operations, their linage has been reasonable, and their service excellent. Economic times are tough, but the new owner is planning on bringing some upgrades to the center while retaining the home-like feeling Star Lanes is known for. I would urge everyone to come on out and give the the place an honest chance in 2009. Try some open bowl, join a league, experence the friendly staff and the regulars who bowl here and eat here. There’s something for everyone.

Had an OK time….but, like mentioned in your other comments, clean it up or your place won’t make your rent sooner than later. Great food,and, great possibilities for the alley itself… with some elbow grease.

Our office just got back from eating lunch at Star Lanes – It is the best in town for home cooking, delicious, generous portion food. Everyone said they’d go back and we discussed putting an office league together! Keep up the great work!

Star lanes use to be one of the best places to bowl theres been some high scores shot there. But when it comes down to the appearance of the place it horrible. The owner cares more about her other things in her life. To me to own a bowling center you must put in money the bar to me is the only thing thats keeping the place alive. They wanna have the Youth state tournament there i dont think so in order for that to happen the needs to be some changes for the place. when i was little the place was packed on Friday nights and other nights theres no friday night league. This place needs to have some changes if they wanna be there for more than 5 years.
