Just bowled 2 games with 5 adults and 14 Scouts and siblings and had a great time. Great deal for the buck and super family environment. We�ll be back. Thank you.

Tried to have an after bowling Christmas party there. Called to confirm and the girl who works there told us they knew nothing about it.Thought it was another date. Could not get the promised food together. Settled for a lesser menu. They charged us the same price as the more extensive menu we were scheduled to have. Only the nachos were good. Pizza, motz sticks and wings cold and food came out little by little. Never again !

hey roller 7…do you know how much under the lanes ball returns would cost???Not only the cost but how hard it would be to install them.My god you have no clue..Ball returns in the pits would have to be changes.The gutters would have to be reworked,etc,etc…They work fine..Redwood lanes is ok with just the way they are.

Ive been coming to redwood with my grandfather since i was born because he bowled there. now it is my favorite place to hang out on the weekends. The people there are great and very friendly. If you have a bad experiance its your own fault probably.

Redwood lanes is a great bowling center. The food is great, the prices are decent all around and the staff professional and know what they’re doing. They are doing a good job fixing it up to. Anyone who says otherwise are probly only doing so cause they’re like the other scumbags who posted on here and are the trouble makers.

This place is 100% run down.Things were starting to look good when Carol from the bowlers club was there.Looks like they let the wrong person go.

I’ve been bowling there since I was a kid, and it’s a fun place, but it fills up with {deleted} pretty quick. I’ve seen plenty of drunken fights, cops draggin people out, donuts in the parking lot, etc etc. The employees are {deleted} too. Other than that, it’s a damn fun place.

I think that Redwood Lanes is one of the great lanes in New York. With my father there, it speeds up all of the fixing in the machines.

Comment Date: 4/10/2007 Name: wazoozie
Great center! New owner is doing great job making it a better bowling center! New oil machine and synthetic heads, makes it a great shot! Price is right! They have a great end of the season no tap tourney which runs from 03/31 to 05/06! Call Redwood for more info!!

My friends and I are cery loyal customers at the Redwood Lanes in Colonie. We went one saturday everyone paid about eight of us. We get a lane which doesn’t work, told the empolyees and were placed in another lane that didnt work. We order pizza finish the pizza and requested a refund. We were first denied money back. Then we were offered four people money back and two free passes. Then the empolyee who took our money in the front said ” I can give you all your money back but you can not come back here, ever” and we did’nt yell or speak out of tone. We were very respectful and asked why can we not comeback and we didn’t even play and will we be arrested if we return. He told us the cop to his left would arrest us all. We didn’t play one game and recieved money back but can not return. We were nothing but polite and were treated like the bottom of a shoe, dirty. Very fun place but the people that work there are very disrespectful and do not treat people right in any kind of way. {Phone number deleted}

Monday & Tuesday nights after 9:00 – $1 per game. This was a great idea. It’s good for league bowlers who want to practice at a cheaper price. It’s also great for amateurs like me and my friends who like to have a good time and not take it too seriously.

The Saturday night bowling for nonleague is not actually for much bowling. They’ve turned it into some sort of teeny bopper dance club. Not at all what you would hope for when going out w/ some friends to bowl.

Redwood is very “retro”. Clean, and under new ownership. The people are quite friendly and the shot is fair. Not easy as many of the centers are today, but if you know your stuff you will score. A pleasant change from “cake” Houses.
