Nobody there since Kandie left?! There hasn’t been anybody there since Jeremiah or Brian were the bartenders.What Danny did? Kandie QUIT! And if you miss her … She’s still out there every Friday making her rounds.

Why let them go?!?!? Do you see the bar now? No me either there is noone! They were the best thing that has happened to that bar and the screwed it up!!!!! Danny rethink what you did!!!!

Comment Date: 4/13/2011 Name: cares
Why would Brian want to go back to eastland that would b.taking a step down for him. Kandi left for her own reasons but she did not move back to Florida and still visits eastland every weekend. The bar will always b.the same everytime some one comes or goes there is drama. It’s just a bar.

Kandi destroyed Eastland, she got rid of the greatest KJ in lex, the atmosphere was awesome, good friends, good times, but she wanted it different…and for some reason Dannys head was so far up her a** he did what ever she wanted… who’s running the alley now ?

Comment Date: 4/4/2011 Name: Facts
Kandi moved back to florida, the only thing Eastland needs to do is get Brian back to run karaoke, the new guy is slow and not to bright. It’s DEAD! The crowd has left! WAKE UP

candy s*cked I like the new bartenders! finally

Comment Date: 3/30/2011 Name: Friday night fun league
the new bartenders s*ck…….. we want candy back.

Comment Date: 3/20/2011 Name: Concerned
I go to Eastland all the time. I bowl there drink there take my family there. My concern is every time it looks like they have got it together something changes. The new bartenders are horrible,rude and customer service s*cks. I waited the other day for a beer when there was no one else in the bar but me for 15 minutes.I’ve been there the past 2 weekends and its dead HELLO does that tell you something. You may think it will change in time but i don’t see that happening. Candy was the best that you ever had and she took YOUR business with her. Does the owners ever stop and think about what they are doing.. You had it good Sorry but i will not drink there again on principle. Maybe you should rethink your decision cos this one is going to hurt. All the other staff is great.

Comment Date: 3/10/2011 Name: Eastside Banditt
Sorry, but I stop by most every weekend to see some friends on the league and the bar is empty! Danny isn’t letting them go believe me.. if you know what I mean… Thats why everyone goes to Southland now! Of course you got to sing hahahah

If only the lane mechanic knew how to do his job!

Comment Date: 2/7/2011 Name: Beengoing4awhile
I go to the bar every friday and the bartenders are amazing they treat everyone right and do they’re job. THEY KNOW HOW TO DO THEY’RE JOB….If i was danny i would never let them go!!!!!

Just wanted to say i was there this past weekend to bowl with friends and we had a great time. Bowling was so much fun the staff were amazing.. We got to sing karaoke, Didn’t even know they had that there. The bar was packed but the bartenders were fun and friendly and no wait time for drinks even with all the people. We will definitely be back.. Thanks to everyone for making my girlfriends birthday so great..

I had to move away afew years ago but I came home for thanksgiving and couldn’t wait to see the old gang at karaoke and surprise them! I got there and there was 3 people in there besides the employees I was informed that changes were made and most everyone had left no one knew who I was I cried! What happened to the gang? Eastland was home we have wonderful memories of karaoke and good times. It’s sad to think that someone destroyed that special place. The only thing I heard was they wanted someone else in there and from what I seen it was a horrible mistake!Does anyone know where Brian is ?

Comment Date: 10/18/2010 Name: Commenter
stopped by for some karaoke Sat night and WOW place …was D-E-A-D I sang 1 song before they shut down at 11:30 I miss all the good times! And the KJ needs a toothbrush!

Comment Date: 8/28/2010 Name: Truth
that must be some good drugs to require private security at karaoke … chinoe, Todd’s nor any other place has security or any of this trouble lol

Comment Date: 8/13/2010 Name: visitor
I took a few of my friends there tonight 8/13 and oh what a change from the glory days! Skank city! I took my friends and we left

Comment Date: 7/27/2010 Name: Topi
Eastland is a joke ! More people have responded to this board than actually have been there in the past several months! Move on people! No one cares about karaoke! It’s a bowling alley and it s*cks! Yea yea, we get it, WE miss Brian, but you know what, I know Brian and he doesn’t give a {deleted} about eastland! So face facts….. the good times are over move on!!!

Comment Date: 7/26/2010 Name: TO observer
what a joke you think that the KJ had anything to do with it. or the bartender for that matter.. It was a song they chose to sing that offened those guys but they could have just as easily got up and walked out until it was done.. This had nothing to do with the staff other than security saving their butts… The bartender and KJ had NOTHING to do with what went on other than they tried to stop everything.. If Brian had been there and this would had happened he would have done nothing but wait for security he would have let them sing it because it was what they chose.. Who knew it would have such a bad reaction…. No one So dont talk about things that u have no clue about

Comment Date: 7/25/2010 Name: witness
You guys r amazing. If it was not for security any one of you could have got stabbed that night… And i as i remember it was the bartender that put herself in the middle of all of you trying to maintain peace.. That’s right she put her life in danger to try to protect you guys.. Now with that said that guy should have NEVER laid his hands on that girl.. But she was not innocent in the matter she was yelling and screaming at him in his face…again i do not approve of his actions at all im just saying she didnt help matters, all of you guys were drinking and things definitely got way out of hand but for you to sit and blame anyone but yourself is just beyond belief… But to blame someone for possibly saving your life is just stupid…Maybe it’s best that you find another bar cos we want our bar to stay fun and safe like it ALWAYS have been…

Comment Date: 7/24/2010 Name: hey observer
can we even explain what happen there that night?? probably not!!! it had nothing to do with the bartender or secruity!!!!! aall over a song…o and had nothing to do with the KJ at all so why did you bring up brian?? and he was ever full of was himself and other guys!!

Comment Date: 7/19/2010 Name: Observer
I was there the night of all the chaos, another event that could have been prevented had we had a good Bartender and Security. Funny NOTHING like that happened when Brian was there! Hope Danny gets a big thrill of watching his profit sink!

Comment Date: 7/11/2010 Name: RLS
I was there tonight and the most amazing thing happened. A buddy of mine did a Tool song at karaoke. (no big thing right) Well, some dude happen to obviously not like the selection for more than the fact that he didn’t like the band. He made sure to note how un american it was to sing the blasphemy, but how we shouldnt be wasting our time or anybody elses with such a song. OK fine your a d**k, no thing but, after we pionted out the fact that we were there to enjoy our “freedoms” as respectable paying non violent patrons the guy decided he was ok to start PUSHING AND LITERALLY PULLING KNIVES ON HER. OVER HOW UNPATRIOTIC A TOOL SONG IS??) Now the worst thing about this situation is my big gripe. NOW im definately not downplaying these actions.. But, the “security redneck” in charge made sure to let the us involved with victimized parties know that we are not safe. The display was quite impressive. Cursing and threatening us instead of actually doing his job in detaining the guy for the police. As a matter of fact he actually made sure the others were safe from the police instead of doing the right thing in the least. THE BAR SECURITY WORKERS ACTUALLY THREATENED ME PERSONALLY WITH CALLING THE POLICE FOR TRYING TO GET THE GUYS LICENSE PLATE. I for one hope this dude feels great . Not only is he the person to keep the peace…. hes a massagonist and in my eyes (and everyone else involved) just as liable for the situation as the guys pushing and publicly threatening women, pulling knives, and obstructing the situation because apparently there all buddies. Sorry guys I have been a patron of Collins lanes all my life but, believe me I wont be back there. But, I will do everything in my power to make sure this guy loses his “job”. All in the name of being “american”. It was probably the most UN cool thing ive ever seen happen.

I may not be there anymore..but i think that taz is doing a great job as a KJ. As for Kandi goes she is an amazing bartender.I Don’t think everyone should be talking all this junk about the place. Brian is gone and so am i…there is not drama and its a fun atomsphere. I will Def be there this friday

Comment Date: 6/26/2010 Name: concerned
Would everybody be happier if Karaoke was gone?
Would it be better to just have a bar with nothing but drinking and socialzing?

Comment Date: 6/21/2010 Name: tell it like it is…
This is what 11th frame has become? Collins should be ashamed!

Comment Date: 6/16/2010 Name: truthful
There is no crowd at Eastland sorry, the only thing I feel, is sorry for you people! And P.S. the new KJ is horrible he can’t even get the sound right! It’s not American Idol you got that dam right, but it isn’t karaoke either!

Comment Date: 6/14/2010 Name: to the old timer
if u can sing better then me come do it if u have something u want to say about say it to my face dont hide behind your computer if u dont like or have a good time at eastland dont come back its funny how u can say stuff on here but u can say it to my face and thats being nice about it

Comment Date: 6/14/2010 Name: Nice
the last time I checked we were’nt trying out for American Idol.I thought the whole idea of singing in a bar was to have fun!Well U can bet we do when we go,whether u have singing talent or not the crowd makes u feel as if u do.The bartender is friendly and always has a smile way to go Eastland and the new K.j.and his wife are always helpful come on guys don’t knock it till u try it.It is a BLAST

Comment Date: 6/10/2010 Name: Honest Opinion
I haven’t been to karaoke in several months, for this very reason that is posted on this site! It’s not the fact that the the former KJ is not there anymore, whom by the way should have never been let go! It’s for the fact of all this trash talking and the bad atmosphere that was formed at 11th Frame. I along with others from the league just stopped going into the bar, and most likely won’t rejoin the league next year. But that’s the power a woman has over men, but sometimes when your in business you have to listen to the customers, I guess Collins is more interested in the drama! Shame on you Danny!

Comment Date: 6/6/2010 Name: fed Up
I have been to Eastland and stop in time to time and feel sorry how bad it’s been run down … secondly hahaha it’s people like you ( and we know it’s Kandi ) that has run it down. But feel like you have accomplished something, because I, along with many others have stopped going, secondly Danny, seperate the sales of the bowlers and the people actually karaoking, and see how many people you actually have in the bar spending their money. How you became a manager when you can’t even spell amazes me! Thirdly, I have a life and a REAL job! And I am no longer on a league at Eastland for the simple fact of how you have ran it down!

Comment Date: 5/29/2010 Name: haha
U Guys r so funny… im there every weekend and its still busy and still fun… Where do u guys get this stuff… Im mean really? U think cos brian or tammy isnt there and you say bad things about people that its going to make something happen. Its done and over find a new Karaoke place if you dont like it. But stop bashing people that you dont know anything about..It just shows what losers u guys r.. that you have nothing better to do with your time. Is all this really that important to you… Do u need eastland bar to live your life HAHA… LOSERS…

Comment Date: 5/26/2010 Name: No respect
The only one stupid is Management at Eastland for not investing in their own equipment and paying someone to run karaoke, and any other music events they might want! Maybe it’s time to go to the source of the problem OC and Kandi for causing such a HUGE loss.

Comment Date: 5/23/2010 Name: old tymer
I went tonight to see what the hoopla was about lol it was D-E-A-D and 2 retards were running the Karaoke who thought they could sing I left

Comment Date: 5/22/2010 Name: X lifer
I think most these comments have been in response to what happened to the bar we USE to love and had a great time at! It’s sad that angry, bitter and jealous people got rid of the the good time, loving and friendly atmosphere that Eastland use to have! I am on one of the Friday night leagues, and have been for the past several years from when Jeremiah use to be Bartender then Kathy (god rest her soul)then Derek and now Candy, who has done nothing but trash the past KJ and soured the atmosphere at Collins 11th Frame. I am giving credit where credit is due! However, it doesn’t matter what is posted here because Danny doesn’t care about the clientel or patrons, as clearly demonstrated with his actions. And as for Brian, we love him he was a huge asset to Eastland and the atmosphere he created! Candy told me he didn’t let people sing enough, but I sang everytime I wanted and never had to wait long, Yeah when they were packed of course, and for his friends singing, they took turns like everyone else, then that he created Drama, is her exact words to me, he created fun and made us forget the crappy week we had, he made everyone laugh with what ever he was talking about. And I’m not even going to talk about his singing and how awesome. So in closing, with the league deciding whether or not to return next year we are keeping in mind Danny’s and Candy’s perceptions of running a buisiness!

Comment Date: 5/21/2010 Name: aha
haha, you’re the reason we stopped going!

Comment Date: 5/20/2010 Name: visitor
OK first off people need to grow up and act there ages…second Kandi has to be one of the best bartenders in the bar i mean shes funny and loving towards everyone she does her job right..and heres an idea guys and girls..If you dont like the bar and the staff there or the way the bar is being run the just dont come its that simple here’s a god idea for everyone that comes Leave the drama at the door!!!!

Comment Date: 5/20/2010 Name: haha
All u people r stupid u guys r complaining about a bar… If u don’t care about it then y you still talking bout it. U must love it enough to keep running ur mouths about it.. This site is for the bowling center.. Do u really think they care what u have to say… My friends and me love going there. So if u dont like the place then shut up and move on… Dumba**es… HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHa.

Comment Date: 5/19/2010 Name: tired
This is sad!!! Eastland is GHETTO now WTF ?

Comment Date: 5/18/2010 Name: Daron
Wow, management is out of control at eastland! As for Candy, she knew and approved the stripping act and tried to get a pole installed! She may not have been there the last night it occurred but how many nights before was she there and laughed and applauded ? And OC wanted the change from Brian to Tammy because he thought he could get more pill trade! And looks like he got it he’s running the show now! So hope everyone has a nice time in between the smoke breaks you can watch him sing in between the poppin!

Comment Date: 5/18/2010 Name: Ed
Candy’s executive decisions have lead to the downfall of what use to be a great place to go and have a good time ! Why don’t people wake up and realize if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

Comment Date: 5/15/2010 Name: visitor
The only problem here is adults not taking responsibility for their own actions. No one made Tammy get on the bar and do what she did and candy wasn’t even there that weekend. BUT I WAS… Candy has made that bar fun and friendly. I have never heard her say a bad thing about Brian or Tammy..She just doesn’t say anything. She had nothing to do with either of them leaving.sometimes things happen and things change.. But i do find it funny that the only time people come on and say bad things are when a KJ gets fired… Good job family and friends of the KJ’s way to be adults.. Makes me laugh….

Comment Date: 5/15/2010 Name: What To Heck
Don’t know what is going on at Eastland hadnt been there for awhile but omg… Trash in bar(girl dancing on bar) isn’t there anymore, rumor has it new pins are going in and outside has been cleaned up, did something change recently?

Comment Date: 5/15/2010 Name: Already Gawn!
Collins solution was firing Joe Wilson and letting Brian go from karaoke…. and look at the turnout! Wow! Guess Danny isn’t gonna be on anyone’s Top Buisness lists this year !! What a dumba$$

Comment Date: 5/11/2010 Name: Michigan Vice A
Wow, I bowl in a league here in Michigan, I was looking at websites of Bowling Alleys I had bowled in at Tournaments, and seen this, I forget the dudes name that was running karaoke the night we were there he had a cap on and he had the most incredible voice he sang Queen’s “somebody to love” and OMG .. I take it he isn’t there anymore? Sad! I will never forget that night my friends had the best time!

Comment Date: 5/1/2010 Name: Tired of it all
Candy knew about the stripping act .. she can pretend to be oblivious but everyone who goes there knows Candy approved it … she thinks she owns the alley!! Her and Debbie both but their day is a coming!!!

Comment Date: 4/28/2010 Name: Bowling Center First?
Collins needs to find a solution on how to get league bowlers back in the center.With the possibilty of losing the Friday Night Fun league (the only big league it has left)Danny might have a hard time keeping the the doors open.What happened to the GREAT Ronnie Martin? Wasn’t she the answer to Customer Service and given a League Coordinator position? Want some free advice Danny… Get rid of Ronnie and let Debbie and Lucas make the decisions you’ll get the league bowlers back.

Comment Date: 4/27/2010 Name: Stew Pidaso
I can’t believe all this nonsense! I drove all the way from Morehead to score some OC 80’s in the bar, and all I could get was some Loritab And Xanax. Then I had to watch that nasty creature shaking her muffin top on the bar. What a mess!

Comment Date: 4/27/2010 Name: Redneck Rampage

Comment Date: 4/27/2010 Name: Deidre
Candy is the BIGGEST part of the reason the bar has went down hill. Debbie is to blame also… THEY allow this to go on in the bar..Why Pat has allowed this to continue is beyond belief.. Danny should be ashamed which leads me to believe there’s something there ( they had no issue when Derrick or Jeremiah was there)… and as for Brian comments .. I have seen nothing said bad against him from this sight.. the only bad comments I have heard have been directly from Candy herself.. Brian had classy people going to eastland and a great friendly atmosphere.. when Candy arrived with her holier than thou attitude in tow was when it started downhill I am done with Eastland For anyone who cares Joyland is cheaper as well as nicholsville!

Comment Date: 4/27/2010 Name: Karaoke tryer
I go and sing karaoke occasionally at Easland and remember seeing Tammy doing her stipper-like act. I was surprised and I thought her act was fun and amusing. Would someone please tell me what she allegedly did to get in trouble. I mean did she allegedly go ahead and strip completely or something.

Comment Date: 4/25/2010 Name: Me
Tammy got fired last week anyways.

Comment Date: 4/18/2010 Name: bar patron
I can’t believe what went on there last weekend. It was not a normal Friday or Saturday night. I go there just about every weekend and i was disgusted by Tammy …. it was not appropriate behavior..But i was told that the situation has been taken care of.I can tell you this it would of never even happened had candy been there.So say all the bad things you wish but give credit where it is due. She always works hard to ensure everyone is enjoying themselves. I feel bad she had to come back from vacation to this. Shame shame on u Tammy.

Comment Date: 4/18/2010 Name: uuhhggg
Get over the Brian comments no one cares anymore.. its old news people.. do any of you have a life….

Comment Date: 4/13/2010 Name: Dunn
I feel eastland wants a stripper/slut bar. The only people who bowl there don’t go to karaoke anymore! And for those reading this… word has it Brian is starting his own karaoke for his friends, so ONCE AGAIN Eastland made a huge mistake!

Comment Date: 4/11/2010 Name: life long bowler
eastland has taken a turn for the worse. its ghetto, until danny can figure out how to change things there it will continue to be ghetto. if you are looking for a fun bar to go to…..go to nicholasville bowling alley. lots of fun. this place would be aweful if it wasnt for andrew b. at the front counter… least he knows whats going on.

Comment Date: 4/1/2010 Name: Bowler
Nobody cares about karaoke at eastland! Isn’t a bowling alley ?? Eastland has s*cked since Steve got axed!

Comment Date: 3/25/2010 Name: Moni
This place used to be so fun! When Brian was replaced by Tammy I, along with MANY people, refused to go back. I’d rather not spend my weekends watching some over the hill woman that resembles Steven Tyler from Aerosmith parading her big gut around in tank tops with flab hanging out. She lets her son into the bar to sing songs like “Strokin” which is completely inappropriate for a child his age, much less to be in a bar. But hey, that says a lot for her parenting skills. The bowling alley is NOT a babysitter while you work! This place has really just become distasteful!
The food is good, the bowling area itself is ok. But I think Id rather take my business elsewhere.

Comment Date: 3/24/2010 Name: Theo
HECK YEA GET HER A STRIPPER POLE!!!! The hell with karaoke!!!!

Comment Date: 3/23/2010 Name: Kimberly
The best thing about Brian is his ability to find the perfect song for any singer! He could take a person with limited range and think of a song for them to sing, as well as stretch a person’s range of selection! We love you Brian

Comment Date: 3/22/2010 Name: Anonymous
After a couple of years of people telling me Pat was a man of his “WORD” and will get this place back on track.I think i will stick with my original opinion.. his word is “BS”.Most (not all)of the staff now has little to no bowling knowledge and are to busy “texting” to help when problems arise.And as far the bar goes the only thing left the new karaoke girl needs is a stripper pole. (Sweet touch D!)

I was there last Sat night 2/27 it was the Pookie/Tammy show and I wanted a refund lol Get a clue Collins Bring back some class!!

my wife and i and another couple meet in lexington every few months to visit with each other we decided to go bowling and was made aware that the bar had karaoke ( My frind sings in a band) but we all love it.. We had the best time. Although it was very busy we got to sing and had a blast. i would recommend going here to everyone.. We will defintly be back when we come to visit again.. GREAT PLACE…

I had no idea Brian wasn’t there anymore! How sad! He had an amazing voice!!

Comment Date: 1/30/2010 Name: Bradley Tournament
Was the only night this place had a crowd I have been SEVERAL times since Brian has been gone and it s*cked!!! many of us went to hear good singing NOT to sing!! Brian was fair to everyone and had a rotation … yes he sang and let his friends sing.. but everyone else sang just as much the rotation was long because everyone came… now it’s dead so of curse you get to sing . ya get what ya give … and once more Collins has Give it to the wrong person maybe Danny should fire himself! And the women that work in the bar do nothing but talk bad about Brian and how great it is now well reality check It’s not great the drinks are expensive and watered down and The guy singing is horrible I am finished with eastland!

Comment Date: 1/29/2010 Name: Friday night bowler
I’m not sure where all these people are getting their information from Not from being at Eastland obviously i have been bowling and going to the bar for YEARS, and i have seen everything that goes on there. Brian was ok he brought people, but his friends.. They came to sing and thats what the did over and over. my wife and i waited many times to sing and many times left because he would never call us.. We still go now and Its fun we always get to sing, the whole atmosphere has changed for the better.. I never saw it where people were waiting to get in when Brian was there, but its like that alot now. I havent seen any young kids in the bar singing so not sure what they are trying to do there.. It is alot of fun now and you always feel so welcome…. Maybe some of you should actually show up and see what im talking about. Thanks Collins Great Decision

Comment Date: 1/25/2010 Name: Krista
Collins get a clue your alley s*cks

Comment Date: 1/3/2010 Name: Erica
First off it wasn’t collins decision, a named OC owns the karaoke that is run in the bar, it was all over drugs, Brian never had anything to do with the drugs and they had to get rid of him that’s the truth … I ask for an aspirin last weekend and a certain person handed me a xanax I left! That’s the crowd they want at Eastland! That is what I have witnessed since brian has been let go if they wanted a new crowd they would have fired from the top but it was told to me that OC has been doing it soo long they aren’t ever gonna get anyone else to do it and OC was there a few weeks ago when I was and said to me He let brian go! So they need to let OC go if they want a change!

Some guy was working karaoke the other night I was there it s*cked!

Comment Date: 1/1/2010 Name: Janie
Brian brought character to karaoke he loved singing and everyone that loves to sing came to eastland for him! I got engaged at karaoke and had my wedding reception there I can’t believe brian was let go!! Boo Boo on you Collins!!!

Comment Date: 12/12/2009 Name: Ed
Management at Eastland made the decision to get rid of Brian because of a “complaint”, he did nothing wrong, they said he let his friends sing to much and not anyone else … funny thing is it’s the new girl that sings all the time and Jack! Once again such a great management decision Danny!!! I give the alley a couple more years til it closes!

Comment Date: 12/11/2009 Name: Jonathon
What happened to Brian? He was there for years? Everyone loved him… that is stupid on Collins part! The new girl s*cks and that’s her 13 y/o son she lets sing .. and stand outside til closing. Where is Brian going now ?

Comment Date: 12/7/2009 Name: Jason
I use to love Eastland, but recently with them letting Joe go and them losing Brian as the KJ it’s horrible, I was there 3 weeks straight and this girl named Peggy was so loud and drunk we had to leave, and the only 2 people singing were the new KJ and this old guy named Jack it was horrible!!!!!! I won’t be back sorry!

Comment Date: 12/5/2009 Name: Anonymous
I think the employees must write comment here Eastland s*cks now a days the only ones going there are ghetto thugs and the employees themselves

Comment Date: 12/5/2009 Name: Gone
I went there a few weeks ago and my 16 y/o daughter was harrassed by a group of wanna be thugs I went into the bar to see a 12y/o boy singing strokin while an old white hair guy smoked a cigarette I asked the bartender why the boy was in the bar and she told me it was a family bar ? I won’t be back

Comment Date: 12/5/2009 Name: daryl
I use to bowl in a league there on Friday nights, Danny Collins doesn’t care about the people and the new trashy girl running karaoke is awful no one will ever bring the talent and atmosphere Brian brought I will never be back to eastland

I think them getting rid of the old guy is great. He was not all there. I went in his office once to talk to him and he was playing a card game on his computer. Anyways, not one to judge, but I think the place has been looking up. I think good changes are coming, slowly but surely. I think they are getting staff that knows what they’re doing. I wish them luck.

For those that haven’t tried Eastland lately maybe you should give it another go….
Things have changed and Joe isn’t what kept the place open…It is the employees who care enough to make it a better place for you and your friends to come and have fun. Alot of people think out with the old is a bad thing, well have I got news for you good ridins to the old and congratulations to the new for trying to make a difference…

Glad “the bowler” seems to know everything.
Why don’t you find something good to say for a change or do you know how?

Wow is all i have to say. Things have changed there. I havent been there in a while because the food and service but decided to try it again a last friday night with friends and what a great experience we had. The food was great. Lady working there was so nice. She said that the bowling center had taken over the food GOOD MOVE. People at the front desk were very helpful.
But the best was the bartender. She was awsome and funny and so nice and welcoming. We would go back again just for her. lol prices were a little higher but it was worth it to have such a great time. thanks Everyone should give it another try………

Get ready for a new center. looks like it is being built on the corner of M.O.W. and Richmond road. New owners are from up east somewere…
Paper stated it may run other centers out of business… maybe thats why Eastland is up for sale…
