I’ve bowled here back when it was still wood lanes and the ball return stretched all the way to the foul line. I just bowled here recently in Feb 2016 and I was kind of disappointed.
I was getting a few games in before a 6pm league was supposed to start, hopeful that there would be an oil pattern resembling league play to practice on. Turns out there was absolutely no oil on the lanes what so ever. I asked local staff and their answer was that they “oiled last night” and no intention of re-oiling before the league got in.
I felt bad for the people who paid to bowl in that league coming in after I left.

Garwood Lanes is disgusting. It’s not clean, the staff is nasty, and they have ZERO people skills with ZERO customer service. Recently attended a child birthday party there, where the “party hostess” was a disgruntled, and nasty. Not only that – she didn’t even HELP with the party. Garwood Lanes needs to be put to rest. Linden is a great house, with great customer service. Greenbrook Lanes is nice as well. Too bad for Garwood Lanes. It could be a successful place if it was being run like a professional business. Remember – customer comes 1st. NOT LAST.

Nice little place. Very clean, well kept. Synthetic lanes, well worth the price. Great staff too. This place reminds me a lot of Slocums. Just wish the hallway leading from street to lanes wasn’t so darn narrow!!!! check it out!!!!!!

Overall I come to Garwood because it close to home but best believe when I’m up for a drive I go elsewhere. This place is very small (more for parties or just to go to go) One day this week it was so hot in thier I asked the bartender for a cup of ice and he asked ‘for what?’ I told him because it was hot in thier he then said ‘we dont give out ice.’ I asked him if he wanted me to buy the cup of ice he said they dont just give out cup with ice. Can you believe that? Unbelieveable… I called to complain to the owner but he’s never there. Go figure but I guess it explains why the staff is that way; they dont know the importance of customer satisfaction. Jesus I didn’t ask for a lot just a few cubes BECAUSE IT WAS HOT!!!!!!!

this is the greatest bowling place to go just to have a good time with friends, or have birthday…..Its very cheap also the workers are nice and help you as soon as possible.. the one and only thing is that they only have 8 lanes but “its great and worth the wait” also they have like this 12 year old working there on sunday and the kid is the WORST….. but everything else is great..Also if garwood has a wait DO NOT GO TO LINDEN LANES the workers are total {deleted}!!

I love “The Lanes” nothing beats a night out there. The staff is incredibly friendly and the prices are very reasonable. And its the only bar i know of that gives you every fourth drink free. It really is the best in Jersey!

Great place to bowl, have fun, or chill out. Lots of people to meet, the staff are super nice, and I hear they’re doing karaoke on some occasions. Bar is small, but basically suitable. LOTS of TVs! Great place to bowl with the kids and family.

Aside from all the Met fans, the place is a diamond in the rough.
