i love east islip lanes. the staff is great and the snackbar is what you would expect from such a place.the prices are standard and the guy in the pro-shop is great for advice.the lanes attracts some trash as it gets late though, which you should expect from most places at such a time.

Haven’t bowled here in a while, about 15 years, but have to say the lanes are incredibly easy. I’m a normal 215-220 average bowler, but this place has put me to the 220-225 range. I can close my eyes and strike. If you want an ego boost, this is the place to bowl, if you want to know that you can actually bowl, you should try somewhere else. Looking at the averages here and who actually throws the ball, the averages are definitely inflated. Ridiculous place to bowl.

If your a bowler, you’ll really appreciate EI Lanes.
Well maintained lanes & equipment, they are always improving the general facility as well. New bathoom facilities look awesome. Friendly staff, plenty of parking, open LONG hours.. Not much more to ask from a bowling center, check them out.

since moving to long island i can see that many people born and raised here are ignorant, pitting community against community. such as Tina speaking about brentwood, central islip, wyndanch ect. as soon as i can sell this overpriced house i’m moving back to the city where culture isnt put down it’s an virtue.. and get away from you mindless twitts

The lanes and staff are great, except the male bartender. Because he s*cks so much. They should crap him out. I mean it is so easy to make drinks. But why can,t he?

Comment Date: 6/25/2007 Name: A Bowler
This is great. Except the guy at the drinks. HE S*CKS.

Comment Date: 4/26/2007 Name: Ronnie
My kid bowls in a bumper leauge there, he was afraid to bowl infront of the other children becuase he was afraid he was no good. One of the staff there, a teenager, he showed me son how to bowl. So i like the alley for that, and i bowl thursday nights, everything is great.

This place has the best shot right now on the island! Are you there to Drink or bowl!!!!
Think why you are there. Bowling is a sport, Not a drinking hole!… East Islip has always been on top of its game. Staff is fine. Lanes are exellent, This is the place to bowl if you are serious! you won’t be sorry!!!!

You people with the bad comments are all crazy. This is a good bowling alley and our favorite place to bowl. They cater to the leagues. The snack bar is good. The bar is fine (although the beer pitchers are too expensive and they need some specials like 2 for 1 drinks or half price pitchers or discounts for leagues). The waitress is great. The lanes are synthetic, the machines work well, and the pro shop is decent. The place is a little old, but so what. Bowl in two leagues and practice for $1. Where else do you see a deal like that?!

The Male bartender there s*cks. He can’t make a drink for nothing. They need to get a NEW bartender or lose patrons.

Comment Date: 2/19/2007 Name: Regular bowler
The lanes are ok. But I must say the male bartender is NO GOOD at making drinks. He is very cocky. If you ask for a drink he say’s can’t make that for some unknown reason. They need to get a NEW bartender in there, or lose customers. The female bartender is really nice. She will help you if she can.

these are probably the best lanes in the area…better than coram thats for sure and better than then centereach…never bowled as many 200’s here then anywhere else…

You all gotta be freaking retarded. No one has gotten shot at EI lanes, and I have never once seen a hooker anywhere near the building, or in the whole town for that matter. I’ve been bowling there for 15 years, and there’s no flies, and the porters are the best in the world 🙂

You have to be kidding . I love how the owners and staff are the only monkey’s posting positive about this crapper with ballz . It’s the worse alley in 4 counties.I hope that the employees are on the clock when they post . Or the owners are doing to you what they’ve been doing to it’s patrons for years .I rather bowl at PathMark with a frozen gobbler and a couple bottle of RC Cola..then spend cash at this dive .

I use to play the lounge. 2 sets every friday during the summer . The place was a dive..Bad electric..Half the fire exit doors dont open.I think they’re rusted shut or something.Owner should try putting a little oil on the lanes and some wax on the balls . And try spraying the shoes..and the bathrooms for roaches.It’s amazing the fire marshals haven’t shut this place down years ago..Especially after all the shootings over the years

What’s with all the hookers hanging out front of this place . I thought I was in Tijuana

Comment Date: 4/26/2006 Name: Tina Steffens
Place smells like an open faced cod & tuna sandwich . I thought I was at a crime scene ..And what’s with all the flies ..Was the place an old meat packing plant or cannery . And after you wash your hands in the bathroom..Your hands smell like canola oil . And the lanes have more bank than turn 3 at Talledagga .And the music . I guess they cater more towards the Wyandanch,Wheatley Heights,Brentwood and Central Islip crowd

I love bowling at the lanes with my friends, the guy that sprays the shoes there is such a hottie!! Also after bowling, we all go to AJ’s italian ices.

We are so happy to see so many great things here. We are concerned about the flies issue someone had and I assure you it has been thoroughly investigated and we have not seen any. Bring a friend and bowl free.

Comment Date: 7/16/2004 Name: MNG
I am sorry but I don’t like this place. Very rowdy. Young crowd. Lots of flies. Pretty dirty..

Comment Date: 7/14/2004 Name: Lauren Floyd
My friends just started going. It is like whoa.

The EI Lanes got me through many a tough days at work at Edwards Supermarket. So the lanes were great….a real relief after work.

This is the best bowling alley. Two thumbs up.

Comment Date: 7/5/2004 Name: Charles Vincent Sorrese
The food at the lanes is excellent…I order a large cheeseburger every time I’m there and snack on it between my bumper bowling.

Comment Date: 7/4/2004 Name: Frey Floyd
I love Lanes! I go every Friday and Saturday for MIDNIGHT BOWL!! They have the best grilled chicken sandwichs and stuffed burritos. I also like the music. My boyfriend Charles dislikes the bowling balls because they don’t have a good variety in weight but I love Lanes except the fact that are alot of youngsters.

Comment Date: 6/28/2004 Name: chucky sorrese
I recently moved to California, Chicago and back to LI (all within 2 days) and I didn’t realize it at the time, but I saw how much the Lanes meant to me. I missed it deeply….so deeply. I grew up as a kid going there, and in my teenage, formative years…..I met many people there, including my first and only love (*wink* Fretty Floyd)
I will never leave the lanes again…

I love the EI Lanes, it’s the second best hotspot in town, next to the EI public library….a lot of hotties go there. A+
