Had my kids Party there, Nothing Positive I paid for extras we did not recieve and the little twirp had the b*lls to charge me a fee to lite up the cake! The worn out joint looked and smelled like Port Authority on a friday nite. I even regret leaving a huge 50cent tip..

I was doing a birthday party Today on April 14th 2012 and the service from the people that you get is terrible.The personal is also rude ,they treat you with no respect ,the kids were not allowed to do anything ,all the time they were yelling to us to the kids not to do this ,not to do that but jet they do a birthday party’s were you are not allowed to have a fun and good time.I will not recommend to anybody this place even for regular bowling to go.They have rude and terrible service.

We were introduced to the place on New Years Eve 4 years ago and had one of the best family and friends celebrations ever. The following year my youngest son bowled with his dad in a league on Sun. nights. We even had his 10th birthday there 2011. After 3 league balls collected they even came in 2nd one time around. We had not been back since 6/11 and when we called to register for the New Years event were taken back by the changes reflected by the staff on the phone. However we decided to give it a try anyway. After several years with 3 families to be exact last night New Years 2012 was our last celebration there. The alley nas no new balls. Fortunately we all have our own but. There is a new backdrop above the alleys but that is all I noticed. The food, pizza they served last night was so bad after walking to the bar area I noticed not one of the groups had finished theirs. I was digusted. The champain was not expected to be the best but last night was worst then being a freshmen in college. If the alley wants to bring in paying customers they should treat their loyal ones with respect. There are alot of alleys in the area and we are going to take our balls and roll away. But not before contacting the owners. We appreciated the enviroment and wanted to support the place. Loyalty only goes so far.

Wow ! Did anyone see how great this place looks now ? The new manager did an amazing job! Keep up the good work over there. Also Bobby shaved his beard this summer

Garden Palace is phenomenally priced at $1.50/game with the shoe rental at about $3.. All you naysayers with those reviews from 2006 don’t know what your talking about! The ownership is great and this is a great place to take your family and friends. It may be a little old, but its still going strong and it I highly reccomend this place over T-Bowl in Wayne- if you don’t want to burn a hole in your pocket. Get your but to Garden Palace and enjoy greatly priced, fun bowling!

Great little house. A throwback – but it is well maintained and I found the staff helpful and attentive. Plenty of parking. Personally I love the older houses (wood). The lanes have character and distict grooves for scoring if you can figure them out. Overall I would recommend

personally, i don’t like the house. the people are rude and have no idea what they are doing. they didn’t even know hoe to use the nationwide card i had. and $25 for 1 game, 3 people… is a little ridiculous.

This bowling alley should be knocked down. The place is dirty and old, the shoes are beyond bad, I wouldn’t even wear them, they frighten me. The beer tasted like it was a couple years old. The place was swarming with teens who either were in or dress like they’re in gangs. There was fighting all over the place. The lanes have huge dents in them from the rowdy teens throwing the ball up into the air and letting it crash into the lanes… other people’s lanes. And I defy you to find a ball without massive cracks. This is by far the WORST bowling alley I’ve ever been to and someone stole my friend’s wallet.
