To Linda,
I just saw this site and saw you responded a long time ago lol. To answer your question, Charles is my dad and Sharon is my aunt. My grandfathers name is carl(which is my name too lol). Im glad you enjoyed the place and have such great memories! I have a ton of fond memories of the place as a kid. If I had the money I think i would buy it back from the existing owners and bring it back into the family.

Plaza lanes is great. Coaches are amazing, teach kids lots of new techniques and fix any clear “bad habits” very fast. Coach Parisi is a VERY good coach, lots of good times. Bowls 300s quite frequently, maybe thats why he is such a great coach!!! I have been bowling for 3 years at Plaza, and with Coach Parisi’s help, my average for bowling went from 115 to 187. I am still learning new strategies and adjusting to new conditions. I say Madison Plaza Lanes has amazing staff and the lanes are 999999999999999x better then any other place I have been to around Union County!

Plaza Lanes WAS going down hill for a while because of the previous owner MB but now it’s back on its feet and reorganized, redecorated with an OUTSTANDING sports bar with a HUGE selection of lagers, ales, stouts, mixed drinks, etc. Good job Travis & Patty. Oh, and guess what? The AC actually works now – YIPPEE!
{Deleted} Plaza is clean and a nice place to bowl now. The mechanics are A-1. They have pretty good leagues including the Saturday league for kids with a great coaching staff that my daughter been a member of for 2 years now! She might beat me some day! LOL

This is a comment to “C”. I LOVED Plaza Lanes as a teen in the ’80’s! Mostly because of the family that owned it…Charles? V.S, & his beautiful teenaged daughter Sharon V.S., whom I concidered a friend when I went there with my first boyfriend Brian. It’s not the same, but we had the one that has withstood the test of time. Hats off to the V.S. family, & thanks for the fond memories! With reverence, Linda

The blowers in the mens room could use a little maintenance. There’s a good shot out there thought and the Grilled Mahi-Mahi at the snack bar is to die for.

My grandparents used to own plaza lanes until about 1999. Has it gone down the tubes like the people have been saying. ill be very upsset if that is case because my grandfather worked for 30+ years to make that place what it was.

I heard that Plaza Lanes got an eviction notice recently, were past due on the rent by a few months.

This alley was good 3 years ago. It took a dive. The lanes are nice, but everything else has taken a dive. VERY poor ventilation, not very clean, very poor lighting.
New owner takes over in a couple of weeks…..

I’ve been to these lanes a few times. Once I went to a friend’s birthday party here at night, the staff seems pretty lethargic but it was still lots of fun. Music wasn’t loud enough for my taste.
The other time I went there just to watch my friend’s kids bowl in a Saturday league for kids. The kids looked like they learned a lot from the coaching staff there. There had to be like a hundred kids and maybe a dozen coaches. It looked pretty organized too. Oh and my breakfast sandwich was great! Pork roll, egg and cheese.

This thing rocks…lol Plaza Lanes is pretty cool but their staff is a little rude..

This place has gone down fast! It’s filthy and the staff is never available when you need them. It gets filled up with smoke because the smoke filters dont seem to work. Snack bar is never open at night.

Nice house, pretty new synthetic lanes, lots of hook, good food, good place to bring the kids and family, host birthday bowling parties for kids, new scoring equipment, pro shop OK.

I love this bowling alley, but they need to have a NO smoking rule, because it gets quite smelly!
