“Gee” Probably doesn’t work there anymore if they were employed before they converted the center into a 300 brand location. They rarely, if ever, retain staff if the center turns into a 300 location.

They took out all the arcade games and made everything look like a lounge. You no longer pay up front, your entire party is calculated together and they will only split the check once. They said it is for the tax reasons. What? Hello! 6% of $15 twice is the same as 6% of $30 once… Lame, this place used to be a lot of fun and that’s all gone now. The new style and atmosphere reminds me of a strip club; and I’m not joking at all.

What in the world is AMF thinking? Loyal league customers are shown the door just so AMF can (hopefully)make more money? Good luck. I hope everyone BOYCOTTS this place. See me at Gaithersburg .

AMF shady grove is a nice bowling alley with pretty decent staff it seems like everytime i go there theres some one new behind the counter at the register. Food is pretty good. Lanes Are usually on the dryer side but, before league i would say its a true medium oil shot. Machines seem to break down once in a while ive had to move several times cause of the ball return or the pins werent being spotted properly. As for going there for open play i would have to say this make sure you bring a ball for dry and lighter conditions nothing really aggressive is needed at this house nothing more then a absolute inferno or ebonite crossfire just examples for equipment choices. Another thing is the pin carry it can get tricky getting the corners out sometimes it seems like the carry can be tough or stubborn but overall nice house synthetic lanes.

great staff, great pro shop, and the lanes are always true. this AMF is a medium oil house, but they only get oil once a day, so expect drier conditions in the afternoon

This is a nice place with very nice and courteous staff. Synthetic lanes very nice. Pro shop is run like an old mom and pop store. Ridiculous

Went for the cosmic bowl, the DJ needs to learn how to choose a good flow of songs he was really jumping around.
Warning: If you hate hip-hop, you probably should not go! Maybe management should do like a hip-hop night, dance night, etc.

Place is good, could use more balls and a touch up here and there. Good price and atmosphere and rarely a wait without it ever being empty which is always nice.

Nice place to bowl with a good pro shop. They also offer lessons and have great coaches.

Nice place to bowl. I especially like cosmic bowl on Friday and Saturday nights. The DJ is fabulous. You can’t bowl because you want to just dance on the lanes. I am going to spread the word about this place.

Nice lanes. Lots of fun and good location. Restrooms are gross … and need renovation. Overall the place needs a good cleaning. Especially the floors and carpets.

I agree they definitely could use more balls but it is really a great place to bowl.

This place isn’t that bad…located in a good area it’s almost always crowded. Could use better service and more bowling balls. Lanes are almost always spotless…There is a Best Buy, Home Depot and Red Lobster right near it too.

It’s a good bowling area. Good lanes. The lanes are pretty fast. The area around is good, there is a Red Lobster next to it and a Best Buy.
