I agree that all the good leagues and employees have moved on, which is why the quality of this place has gone down so much. They made the oiling patterns easier and all the house balls are straight balls so it is hardly a difficult place to bowl well. Not for the competitive.

I worked here as a young girl, and it was great to come back and see the place but I can’t believe how run down it is. The place was always busy and fun and now it’s just sad. I had a lot of fun back then, I’m sorry things changed so much.

Ill admit I was upset about the fake rennovation scandal but honestly they’re smart about doing nothing. They could spend a million dollars to dip this place in gold and “you know who” (the idiot) would still chase the leagues and decent employees away. Everybody good friendly and decent who was from here and really gave a hoot is caring about someplace else now. Bye john.

First impressions are lasting impressions and this is a 70s throwback. It’s disturbing. Second impressions weren’t much better. Too bad, the neighborhood is nice and I was looking to join a league but this won’t do.

Desk person was nice enough but snack person was rude and didn’t know how to cook. Bartender was downright lazy and ignoring us talking to her friends. What business tolerates this. Plenty of other places to go.

Comment Date: 1/20/2016 Name: oldschoollevittownlanesruled
Absolutely true. They’ve chased away most of anyone who cared because of their ridiculous management and clueless careless owner. And I don’t mean Pappas but I don’t really need to say that. All in all everyone but the owner knows who the incompetent lazy stooge that destroyed north and south is.

Perfectly said. In this business, customer service is king. There were some really great employees, loyal employees, who moved on because of lack of leadership and the leaders are still there but where are the actual workers. Good help isn’t hard to find, it’s hard to keep!

Comment Date: 1/4/2016 Name: Kathy m
Now that the minimum wage has been raised you can expect to see less workers available to help you, food even more disgusting and soda even more watered down. But don’t worry you will see the cost passed on to you next season.

Comment Date: 12/17/2015 Name: old school levittown lanes ruled
I’m going to speak here as somebody who remembers what north and south used to be. Awesome. In my opinion there was nothing better or more unique than the whole Levittown Lanes presence in the bowling industry… 10 years ago. Sad part is, all this stupid nonsense on this page is true. They don’t give a crap to realize what they’ve been destroying for the last decade. They keep “cleaning up” the bottom of the chain of command while not noticing the problems at the top and instead of that pooping on the people who really truly loved this buisiness over the years. The same people who everybody is joking about on here have seriously destroyed an institution that made many fond memories years ago.

The owner sadly is too worried about his new marriage to the long curly black haired mean manager to even care, he seems to have lost total interest. Luckily this place seems to have more managers than any place on earth all in charge of one floorboy and maybe a snack bar person. Its really weird how they have so many manager people standing around saying things arent their job all the time but like nobody to clean the place all day

Comment Date: 11/20/2015 Name: Anonymous
if you like getting told that you are garbage, can be replaced, don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out, and oh by the way you’ll never earn more than minimum wage than this is the place for you. Please apply today.

Comment Date: 11/15/2015 Name: Marcus
The owner has delusions of grandeur and he should open his eyes and ears to experience what the customer is getting. I notice he won’t hang out in his own place, where is he, he only has one house left and should try his hardest to keep it open, but I really don’t think he could care less. Daddy will leave him money, he obviously doesn’t need a job but I’m sure his employees do.

Comment Date: 11/11/2015 Name: Screaming Lunatic
This place is old and not updated and it smeells like doody but the real reason I dont go here is John is a nasty miserable man who needs to be fired immediately! I refuse to spend a dime in this place until he is gone if he was Id be here all the time

Comment Date: 11/10/2015 Name: Chef master
Food was not coooked properly, lady at the snack bar was foaming at the mouth and screamed at me, acting like she probably had rabies or somethign which would explain how greasy the chckens were. Just like incoherent insanity. Ive seen the one guy whos always yelling throw brooms and pails at the employees

Comment Date: 11/8/2015 Name: Anonymous
I wouldnt be suprised if the food here was madefrom human meat

Comment Date: 11/7/2015 Name: Bowling mom
I don’t understand why the one manager with the long hair is always watching our kids bowling team practice. Their coach is already there and there’s a manager if there are any lane problems so it doesn’t seem necessary and this has been going on for several years now. Kinda creeps you out and makes you wonder…

Comment Date: 11/3/2015 Name: Greg
Lanes are the same as any other place, bar is dirty and I would stick with bottled beer because I’ve gotten sick twice after having their tap beer. If you’re looking for food, I would suggest that you bring your own because they don’t know how to cook anything at all.

South levittown lanes: side effects may include nausea, shot inconsistency, baldness, extreme fits of rage, vomiting. If you ever went here you shoupd prob contact a doctor to get checked out

Comment Date: 10/19/2015 Name: Anonymous
I miss north, that place was the real deal. they put more money into this pla e but then john ruins it by chasing all the leagues away

Comment Date: 10/13/2015 Name: Frank
There is no south without Keith. Someone has to keep these jokers in line. Hurry back.

Comment Date: 10/9/2015 Name: Anonymous
Hope keith gets back when hes better because the owners husband is totally ruining the place!

Comment Date: 10/2/2015 Name: Anthony martinez liusbca
this place is so good johbn is a genius to be able to get the rug in and new screens so good

Comment Date: 10/2/2015 Name: Anonymous
Unfortunately another season has begun and still nothing has been done. You have to wonder what they did all summer, you would think that they would have used all that dead time to improve the center for the winter leagues. Poor management.

Comment Date: 9/25/2015 Name: Anonymous
Duct taping a new rug down wont help this place as long as John Schrank the owners husband keeps involving himself in the goings on here. Clearly he just wants to use his authority position to take out his personal issues on the employees here and being that hes the owners husband he gets away with speaking to employees and customers in a way that would get anyone fired from any other job

Comment Date: 9/10/2015 Name: SchrankForPresident2016
I would love to live in this place its just glorious what a grand establishment the rugs are amazing and JOHN is so great lets not forget FRANK who is smart enough to listen to johns genius go here immediately!!!!

Comment Date: 9/7/2015 Name: Anonymous
What a bunch of whiny crybabies. If you can’t keep your leagues, stop pointing the finger at everybody else and fix your house. Later!

Comment Date: 9/6/2015 Name: Anonymous
My comments keep not getting accepted, has schrank become mod of this page?

Comment Date: 9/2/2015 Name: Disgusted
God help us, it’s the start of another season. Note to all league bowlers, please bring your own duct tape this year as mgmt has once again run out. Thank you.

Comment Date: 8/30/2015 Name: Anonymous
This is the most perfect place ever

Comment Date: 8/27/2015 Name: Realbowlernotemployee
OMG this new rug is AMAZING!!!!!!!!! Thanks john for being so suiper awesomne this renovation is the most spectacular turn around i have ever seen in forever!

Comment Date: 8/23/2015 Name: Anonymous
OH AND also the food here is as better then if it was made in the best restaurant $10 for a grill cheese and drink is not expensive how much u get for 10 bux in manhatten?

Comment Date: 8/23/2015 Name: Frank Schrank
You people all need to stop complaining and rEalize thant JOHN is hes the best smartest and what he says goes what do any of you people even know about oil machines and a/c only bad bowlers want the same shot every week JOHN is the best and will continue to be here everything he does and says is right PEOPLE JUST DONT KNO WHAT THEY TAKLING ABOUT AC IS PERFECT HERE JUST ASK FAC MGR. JOHN

duct tape paper rug looks awesome with folding tables good job guys

Comment Date: 8/19/2015 Name: JMS
New leagues are starting so I came to check this place out n i was like WOW THIS IS GREAT im probably going to join leagues here all desk people are good John is very smart attractive and good lane oiler and his shots are all best except the kids are all lazy who work there they ened to lisetn to john better and work harder becaause that is why sometimes its messy cause the kids dont clean thats not johns fault like everyone says its not his job to do that he has too many important things to do like renovating and this place would be nothing without JOHN SCHRANK but all in all this is the best place to spend your money

Comment Date: 8/19/2015 Name: grandma ruth
brought the grandkids here for free bowling. i was shocked by how dirty it was. against my better judgment i bought them food which was incredibly expensive and not enough to fill them up. i should have brought them to the bouncy house, it would have been less expensive than the “free” bowling.

Comment Date: 8/15/2015 Name: scott
it was so hot that my shoes wouldnt slide and would stick on the lane. turn on the air

Comment Date: 8/12/2015 Name: kelly
used to really like it here but I cannot overlook how absolutely disgusting it has become. The food is sub-par to any other center I’ve been to and mgmt does not seem to care anymore about what they present to the public. I know it is privately owned and I believe in supporting small business but I work very hard for my money and need to get the most bang for my buck.

Comment Date: 8/11/2015 Name: Anonymous
the ac must be broken or something and some crazy drunk guy named johnny kept yellin at the employees but its cool low class but it was fun bowling with no oil the desk people here are a dream to deal with

Comment Date: 7/28/2015 Name: Mike
Does this place even have a/c? Hottest day so far and I wish I had just stayed home. Disgusting, give me my money back b@#$%^s!

Comment Date: 7/26/2015 Name: Rick
Just came from bowling at amf house. Nice place but people nasty and teenagers running around all over the place. Place may look bad but treatment on Friday and Saturday at desk is so much nicer. Back to old levittown lanes. Lol

Comment Date: 7/24/2015 Name: Ollie
I’m not spending my money on an alley that won’t put any of it back into the business to make it better. I believe in supporting small business but when they are managed this piss poorly I just won’t do it anymore.

Comment Date: 7/21/2015 Name: Mom
I can’t believe that they’re actually charging money to sign up for a free bowling program. Amf is offering three games a day through sept. for $22. At least there are plenty of lanes and they are always clean there.

Comment Date: 7/20/2015 Name: Ray
Wanted to go somewhere cool, air conditioner busted, figured I’d practice but it was so hot in there I could only bowl one game and I was dripping. I should have gone to a movie with a nice recliner instead.

Comment Date: 7/18/2015 Name: Anonymous
I love the comments that are clearly written by the employees pushing the dead Friday nights and the oh so pleasant desk people. No one is there because it’s a disgusting alley where nothing is ever done for the customer.

Comment Date: 7/17/2015 Name: Diane
Place run down but people at desk pretty nice. Ladies bowl free on Fridays so probably come down if it’s raining place really needs work but prices way better then farmingdale

Comment Date: 6/30/2015 Name: Anonymous
why is it so hard to hire someone who knows how to cook at the snack bar. How hard is it to flip a burger and not over/under cook it. Is it really gourmet cooking to try to make a decent grilled cheese sandwich. I’ll bring in my own food thank you.

Comment Date: 6/28/2015 Name: Anonymous
Never been to a wedding at a bowling alley but the owners wedding here was just amazing the dj was great and the food was good too even if it was just bowling alley chicken nuggets and chips. would of been nice if they had the heat higher though it was in feb and it was like 40 degrees in here

Comment Date: 6/27/2015 Name: question for management
Is the rumor that the snack bar got shut down for recycling uneaten chicken nuggets at a birthday party into new resold plates? I was told this and they said I couldnt get nuggets anymore

Comment Date: 6/23/2015 Name: John Mormando Schrank
If i got a choice between give up my firstborn child or give up going to south that kid would be HISTORY!! This is as close to going to heaven as i ever seen!! THe new bar lookse AWESOME n the new rugs is fgood dont listen to the south haters they just mad cuz they cant afford to go here of coarse its expensive its the BEST

Comment Date: 6/23/2015 Name: Paul La Mar
I was at the schrank mormando wedding here, it was a very nice affair. The duct tape wedding dress and excanging rolls of duct tape instead of rings was a very south levittown lanes touch

Comment Date: 6/5/2015 Name: Anonymous
They’re offering a lot of glow bowl so people won’t see just how run down and dirty it is. My question is, if the bathrooms are as disgusting as they are, how about the places we can’t see like the snack bar and behind the bar?

Comment Date: 5/25/2015 Name: still searching
Left Massapequa to come here only to be lied to heading to farmingdale lanes this time looks like the end is near for this dreadful center ADIOS

Comment Date: 5/24/2015 Name: Anonymous
Any time you go in here theres one teenager running the whole place and management just sits around talking

Comment Date: 5/23/2015 Name: Anonymous
Johns politics and the way he treats people is what causes the staff problems to begin with. Weve all been wondering why they keep him, now it makes sense! Now that he has married the owner I feel like theyll never get rid of him!

Comment Date: 5/18/2015 Name: Anonymous
With all the places nearby where you could spend your hard earned cash, I can’t possibly understand why you would spend a second in this place. Aside from the disgusting smell of stale beer and feet, I personally witnessed mice near the bar area and the bathrooms are atrocious. Going to the movies!

Comment Date: 4/30/2015 Name: Jm
So sick and tired of having to go all the way down to the bar to get our drinks because the lazy ass waitress is to busy hanging out. Don’t these people make their money on people tipping them. Laziest staff ever

Comment Date: 4/22/2015 Name: Anonymous
Theres a way to run a hole in the wall buisiness but this is not it. 2 grilled cheeses and 2 beers is like over $30 alone not eve counting the bowling! Theres cheaper places in manhattan to eat than this dump!

Comment Date: 4/14/2015 Name: Anonymous
I found it extremely distracting trying to bowl with the kids with 2 mice running around by the bar. Aside from making sure they didn’t get near my kids, I couldn’t help but wonder what in the bar they had been crawling all over and let’s face it the snack bar isn’t far away either. They should really clean this place up

Comment Date: 4/9/2015 Name: Heather
Absolutely disgusting. Brought the kids here and their hands were black from the balls. Food was horrible, service was terrible. Never again!

Comment Date: 4/9/2015 Name: Anonymous
They leave schrank in charge and he runs wild and causes massive amounts of people to leave. He doesnt care about bowlers only that he gets to be in charge and do whatever he wants. Thats why the shot is always different, because HE wants to play with the oil machine and the owner is too absent and clueless to notice or even care. Firing schrank is the only way this place will say open otherwise hell run the buisiness right into the ground.

Comment Date: 4/2/2015 Name: Anonymous
Horrible lanes, rude staff, terrible food, nasty smell, crappy wait staff. The only good thing about this place is the pro shop.

Comment Date: 3/25/2015 Name: Tony
This place used to be good but they made the lanes way too easy so now everyone thinks that they’re decent bowlers. I realize they were losing lots of bowlers but now you don’t even have to try to bowl well.

Comment Date: 3/24/2015 Name: Dennis
i bowl at many houses and this is at the bottom of the list. There were promises made to keep bowlers from north and south and it just hasn’t been enough. I don’t foresee this place staying open for too much longer.

Comment Date: 3/23/2015 Name: Johnny
This place is just too small to draw in the big leagues that I like to play in, just can’t get a decent pot for the end game. Hate bowling the same teams over and over again. Also way overpriced for beer and food items.

Comment Date: 3/21/2015 Name: Sal
If you can get past the smell, the disgusting bathrooms, expensive drinks, and dirt all over your hands and ball then I guess this place is for you.

Comment Date: 3/17/2015 Name: sally
Place needs work but prices are not bad at all. Went there Saturday night and the the place was packed. Guy at the desk took care of our group and got us on lanes in 20 minutes. Very nice guy very helpful. Coming back Friday for ladies free. Place needs work but had fun with music and lights off

Comment Date: 3/7/2015 Name: Frank Schrank
They really cleaned the place up for the Schrank/mormando wedding a couple weeks ago but right after that they let it all go back down. like they care when its the owner/mechanic’s wedding ceremony but afterwards its back to no janitorial staff and one kid working. Its good to see them married though, well all saw it coming theyre a good couple.

Comment Date: 2/24/2015 Name: Tj
What’s up with the guy at the front desk?

Comment Date: 2/22/2015 Name: Anonymous
North was a wreck even compared to this place but they at least had nice people working real management and no schrank! So they close the better of the 2 places they got left and do they put any money back into the fraudulent rennovation theyve been chirping about for 5 years? NO! Fire schrank and watch this place turn around!

Comment Date: 2/19/2015 Name: Kayla
I think you would probably like it here if you were like 65 or older. a bunch of old people hang out in the dark bar, a little too creepy for me.

Comment Date: 2/16/2015 Name: Don g.
Came with the family because the kids are out of school. I was surprised at how expensive everything was especially for what you get. Very run down and workers looks like it could use a really good cleaning. Our hands were black when we finished.

Comment Date: 2/13/2015 Name: Melissa
Came on Friday night. Surprise to see ladies bowl free. Didn’t know til I walked in. Very nice people at the desk. Place needs work but me and my boyfriend had a good time

Comment Date: 2/12/2015 Name: Antny
How bout they get some real waitresses in here instead of a bunch of lazy asses who just stand around checking their phones all night, at least when there not outside smoking with customers Bitchin bout everything bout this place.

Comment Date: 2/9/2015 Name: Terry
Why does the owner allow his bartenders to be so rude and condescending to his customers. I do not have to spend my money at his establishment and they should all be grateful to have jobs and want to do the best they can to try and keep them before we go elsewhere.

Comment Date: 2/7/2015 Name: big balla bowla
the toilets are so gross its no wonder everybody goes to the bathroom on the floor

Comment Date: 1/26/2015 Name: Anonymous
this place treats employees so badly its amazing anyone works here. they hire underage kids and pay them with bowling gift cards

Comment Date: 1/25/2015 Name:  Dianne
I’m appalled to see just how run down this bowling alley is. I couldn’t believe that this is supposed to be a clean, family friendly place, in fact it was anything but. Disappointing!!!

Comment Date: 1/5/2015 Name: Laura
I would not bowl here and the staff is nasty except for Tony and Kelly. This place needs to be updated with a new bathroom and the place is old and dirty.

Comment Date: 1/2/2015 Name: Anonymous
How does this place stay open? There are so many other alleys in the area with much nicer bars, food and most of all, staff. After my last visit I would gladly pay a little more for a better experience and night out than try to save a few bucks, you certainly do get what you pay for!

Comment Date: 12/30/2014 Name: E dee
the staff here is so incredibly rude. If you hate your job as much as it seems that they do go find another one. Bartenders are supposed to listen to their customers, we shouldn’t have to listen to them bitch while we’re trying to have a good time.

Comment Date: 12/14/2014 Name: Anonymous
I swear, if Keith weren’t here I would never step foot back into this ridiculous house. If only they would give him free reign to do what needs to be done to bring this place up to at least a minimally acceptable bowling alley.

Comment Date: 12/11/2014 Name: Tiny Tim
Hey frank, great news about you and John. It’s been a long time coming and luckily you won’t have to worry about the bowling alley on your honeymoon since nobody wants to go there anyway.

Comment Date: 12/8/2014 Name: Anonymous
I agree the place has really gone down from when eileen ran the place, even from when RICH was there. they cant run a “family fun” center when the guy in charge hates fun, meaning the new ponytail manager. This place was never dazzling but it had a nice family environment, now its just like a handful of miserable little kids runs the place and the “manager” doesnt manage as much as he throws little hissy fits all day

Comment Date: 12/4/2014 Name: franK
hey everyone this is the owner and i want to say this constant calling for the firing of john schrank is uncalled for and threatening to boycott our wedding in febuary is just prejudiced i will never fire my future husband he IS south levittown lanes

Comment Date: 11/21/2014 Name: Larry
My girlfriend and I came here and were put on a lane right next to a group of obnoxious teens. After a few minutes we asked to be moved and even though there were plenty of open lanes they wouldn’t move us. Way to make your customers happy.

Comment Date: 11/14/2014 Name: Angela
I haven’t been here since Eileen ran the place, looks the same but there is a real difference. The employees are absolutely miserable. She always pushed for customer service and there were a lot more workers to help the customers and the snack bar was always busy. What have they done to this place?

Comment Date: 11/11/2014 Name: Anonymous
i had a feather in my burger turns out they were ripping up pillows in the kitchen and didnt even think to cover the food!

Comment Date: 11/7/2014 Name: j.m.
hate it here. the snack stand people are very rude, the kids. it is also dirty and extremely unorganized.

Comment Date: 10/31/2014 Name: JMS
We have decided to conduct our rennovation largely in the imaginations of bowlers. so you have to really believe and imagin really hard and then you will see a nice clean new bowling alley! we feel this is the best way this is all to report

Comment Date: 10/28/2014 Name: Anonymous
I doubt even an ebola scare could get them to clean this place. the entire staff is like one 16 year old kid at any time. and you people expect rennovations? be realistic

Comment Date: 10/24/2014 Name: Km
Too bad the doctor with Ebola didn’t bowl here, at least the place would have finally gotten a good cleaning.

Comment Date: 10/14/2014 Name: Mike
Bowl on Thursday night . Lanes Ok. Tony one of the few bright spots in the place. Always helpful. Runs around like a lunatic for his bowlers

Death Valley would be an appropriate name for this place. One question -where are the customers?

Comment Date: 9/29/2014 Name: Lisa
Don’t bother coming here. Tried coming here for a fun night just to have it ruined by some loser in the bar. After bowling we came in to have a drink and participate in “jukebox karaoke”. However we soon found out that this one guy puts in $100 a night and gets all these free credits making it impossible for anyone to hear their song. Instead of sticking around and drinking, we left immediately. He absolutely ruins the fun of the bar and regardless of if he’s a regular, someone needs to do something about him. Don’t waste your time or money. Go to an amf center with a decent playlist for music.

Comment Date: 9/25/2014 Name: Bob L.
Bowled here many years ago and came back to visit my old league. Heard much about renovations but this was a big disappointment. Glad I moved on and hope to recruit some old friends to join me at a much nicer house.

Comment Date: 9/16/2014 Name: Jack
Let’s face it, this place is fine for anyone who wants to just come and bowl on mediocre lanes with no expectations of anything else. For my money I want much more on my night out with friends, someplace that I actually want to stay and hang out, this is not that place.

Comment Date: 9/10/2014 Name: Leah
Came here the other night with friends. Very dirty, snotty snack bar person, gross bathrooms and overpriced beers. Other than that I guess it was fine.

Comment Date: 9/8/2014 Name: Frances
It’s such a joke when I think about how the owner kept showing us the blueprints for a beautiful, bi-level complex and we now have a black sink. Now that’s progress.

Comment Date: 9/7/2014 Name: George
How many YEARS do we have to wait for these so called renovations. This is the same hole in the wall that it’s always been and I for one am tired of supporting a business that clearly doesn’t appreciate it’s clientele. Shame on you!

Comment Date: 9/6/2014 Name: Stephanie
Bowled Friday night. Ladies night. Place was a little warm but the guys at the desk was so nice and helpful Price was right music and lights were good. Had a nice time with my. Boyfriend. Definitely will be back

Comment Date: 8/28/2014 Name: Anonymous
How is it that its 405 degrees in the building and the chicken is still frozen in the middle??

Comment Date: 8/1/2014 Name: Chris
This is a bad bowling alley, the food is horrible, and the bathrooms are very dirty. I now go to an AMF house now for bowling and Johnny should be nicer to customers and Frank the owner should make the place better and updated with a nicer bathroom and better food and both of them should be ashamed of this bowling alley.

Comment Date: 8/1/2014 Name: Jake
If you enjoy over priced beer, raw burgers and chicken, inconsistent shot and plenty of peace and quiet then this is the place for you.

Comment Date: 7/30/2014 Name: Tbt
Wish nick still ran the place. Now that man was a real professional who knew how to run a business. Took care of his customers and listened to what they were looking for in leagues and his bowling alley. He must be very disappointed in the crapfest that this place has become.

Comment Date: 7/26/2014 Name: Theresa
Was there tonight. Guy behind the desk was a sweety told us about ladies free. Helped me find a ball and even put our names in computer for us. Place needs a lot of work but customer service at the desk was great. Will be back

Comment Date: 7/20/2014 Name: steve v
The rennovations must be over the original budget of 25 cents and so they put it all on hold until they can find another quarter. And it would even be okay if they did other things to improve the place, its like 80 degrees in here on a laegue night because theyre too cheap to turn the ac on just like every year!

Comment Date: 7/20/2014 Name: Ronnie
My friends and I went here on Saturday night. It was 9:30 and it was dead! We didn’t want to be the only ones bowling so we decided to get a drink in the bar – but the only people there were two old dudes and an old lady bar tending. Left in a hurry.

My son has been going to twin oaks camp for three years now. One of their day trips is to this bowling alley but this year they had so many complaints that they went to wantagh lanes instead. They complained about the bathrooms, food, and overall cleanliness. I went to watch last year and I wholeheartedly agree.

So glad this god awful season is over. This house sucks and I’m so outta here.

Comment Date: 4/9/2014 Name: Freddy
Haven’t been here in a year, came back for tournament. Very few changes, however they should hire people who give better customer service. Food horrible, overcooked for all of the team, waitress service, slow but I was told that if you tipped well enough you could drink all afternoon for free, not bad!

Comment Date: 4/6/2014 Name: Bathroom problems
It really is ridiculous. the sad part is this place is such a wreck that they actually think it makes a difference to have some 14 year old kid slap paint on the walls in the entrance way. Its pretty delusional that they think people actually will appreciate this, but i guess they really dont care about their customers as long as ponytail man has a playground to run around yelling at people and pretending to be in charge. Id feel bad for the owner if he did anything to improve this situation, looks like hes just a spoiled baby who got a free bowling alley and doesnt know the meaning of work

Comment Date: 3/31/2014 Name: Mike
I guess it’s just me but my idea of renovations is different than theirs. The only reason they painted the front halls are because of a 2 day fire mans tournament, meanwhile we’ve had to bowl in this dump the entire season so they could afford three gallons of paint.

They apparently put a new black sinkk in the bathroom, but its still the same old disgusting mess except for that. This is ridiculous, whats the point of even putting the sink there it just makes everything else look way worse!! And to top it off the new sink was dirty old paper towels and soap dried up EVERYWHERE!!! At least clean iT!!!

Comment Date: 3/1/2014 Name: Anonymous
It sucks that keith hasnt been here lately, not sure what happened but it seems Mr. Mormando and schrank are running things. Its actually good to see the owner actually taking a part in his buisiness which is unusual but I dont like the idea of schrank being left in charge on the buisiness end, when hes left do deal with customers everybody suffers

Comment Date: 11/23/2013 Name: Anonymous
Definitely a problem with this place is the staffing. Ive been here on a busy weekend night to find one kid who didnt even look old enough to work there running the whole place. When I asked to see a manager because it was taking forever to get on a lane (most lanes were empty and not many people waiting) they said he had to go do something in the bar, so I guess the whole place shuts down for that. Id hate to see how theyd handle it if the place was busy, took a half hour when probably 25 out of something like 30 lanes were open

Comment Date: 10/28/2013 Name: Sb
As a regular bowler I have to express my disgust with the management here. We recently held a fund raiser and requested a donation for our cause. We were turned down multiple times. We are here numerous times during the week supporting our local bowling alley yet they were unwilling to support the community. Maybe it’s time we sport a place that is willing to give back.

Comment Date: 10/14/2013 Name: wtf
Watch it bowlers, here it comes. Its like seeing westbury and north all over again. This guy just keeps making the same decisions over and over again. Why arent they open, wheres the staff, wheres the snack bar, and god please tell me where the bartenders are because there never at the bar. Goodbye and good riddance.

Comment Date: 10/5/2013 Name: Tuesday night
After seeing John Schrank’s conduct on Tuesday, October 1st where he was screaming cursing and threatining people in front of the tuesday night league, there is oficially no doubt that this man needs to be fired yesterday. Its insane and stupid on the part of the owner to allow this man to continue representing the bowling alley while telling people he owns it and embarassing to the owner and anyone involved.

Comment Date: 9/30/2013 Name: chrones supporter
Bowled here over the weekend with friends. Not the type of place I want to frequent too often. They knew that they were going to have a huge group, how about throwing on some extra staff and clean the bathrooms. Too bad, I might have come back but it was a real turnoff.

Comment Date: 9/26/2013 Name: tom
As a local with a couple of kids I have frequented this alley many times. I went there on Sunday and wanted food for the kids but the snack bar wasn’t open. This happened a few times during the summer also and after we leave we have to go find lunch. From now on I’m going somewhere that they serve food also.

Comment Date: 9/15/2013 Name: The truth
The reason the other building is being updated, is they have a real crew working there and actual money behind it. Obv thats going to get you farther than the amateur hour nonsense that theyre doing to south. I tried no less than 10 times to contact these epople through emails, and only recieved one reply, something like “Hey why dont you come check it out for yourself” Well news flash: I dont want to waste my time coming here to see that nothings been done. Its a total disgrace, this tells me they either dont care about keeping a bowler who has bowled every season for 20 years, or the infamous you-know-who is screening Mr Mormandos email to prevent him from seeing what a disaster the place is. I agree hes no Nick, this nonsense would never fly if he still ran the place instead of a clueless owner and a lunatic ponytail man. But they cant even have enough staff here for any kind of customer service so I guess we cant expect them to hire a real professional to fix the place.

Comment Date: 9/2/2013 Name: disgusted bowler
Another season gone and one ready to start and still nothing done. Duct taped rugs, dirty bathrooms, bar with broken tiles, understaffed at all times, poor lighting, dirty snack bar and unresponsive owners. I wish the new owners of North had bought this place too. They’ll be done with renovating their building before this one ever gets started. But then again I don’t believe they were ever really going to clean let alone update this dump.

Comment Date: 8/31/2013 Name: A man called ponytail
At the start of the season that will probably make or break this place, what have they done? I was here over the summer, NOTHING is the answer. Wow theyre starting to put new monitors in while not fixing the gross bathrooms or anything else. What a joke.

Comment Date: 8/11/2013 Name: Anonymous
Theyre putting in new flat screen monitors now, so you can see how low you score on ponytail man’s horrible shot in HD now.

I overheard that they were going to do renovations and update the place and I also overheard that they are closing South?

Comment Date: 7/18/2013 Name: know better now
As a member of several teams from several houses I can honestly say this is the worst. Forget about all that has been written about so far what about some air conditioning during this heat. When we asked them to turn up the a/c we were told it was at the coolest level. WTF, we were dying! Not doing this next year.

Comment Date: 6/17/2013 Name: Ann
Has this place closed? I took my grandson to the pool and he was hungry so we walked to the alley, but it was closed at 1:30 on a Sunday. I used to bowl on a league here but my team left because nothing was being done to update this place. I can’t say that I’m surprised because it was run very poorly. I wish that NIck still ran the place, now there was a businessman.

Comment Date: 5/18/2013 Name: Anonymous
Its a shame, I wish they would do a real rennovation to this place and do what needs to be done regarding the staff here. I have many good memories here and its sad it got to the state its in now

This place isnt awful, they just need to fix it up and change some things

Comment Date: 4/18/2013 Name: Historian
This place is like the catholic church in the middle ages. A corrupt and inept self-proclaimed
“pope” thinks he is all powerful and people have to tolerate anything he does. So they move on to other religions, or in this case bowling alleys. Maybe need a head mechanic who doesnt think hes the pope.

Comment Date: 3/26/2013 Name: pro
The reason i left? To some, bowling is not serious. but to many, its a very serious sport where you stand to make or lose a lot of money and show off years of practice in the hopes of bowling well, and the last thing you want is some nobody messing with the shot. Thats why Nobody wants to bowl here.

Comment Date: 3/17/2013 Name: Anonymous
To all u people complaoining about the shot, shut up. The whole point of bowling is to adjust to the lane conditions every week and thats why john will never ever stop making adjustments, regardless of what ignorant bowlers who know nothing about lane conditioning say or even what frank mormando says. This place basically belongs to john and he can do whatever he wants, and nobody will stop him from creating the perfect shot. So stop crying and go spend all your money at south.

Comment Date: 3/3/2013 Name: Anonymous
I dont feel like the owner is a bad guy, but he is very clueless. How else would a crazed renegade employee be able to constantly play with the shot, driving away buisiness and making bowlers angry, and not be held accountable? Its so incredibly stupid, the place is a dump but the shot is the worst part about it, and the solution is easy, STOP PLAYING WITH THE OIL MACHINE, LEAVE THE DAMN THING ALONE. No wonder everybody went to east meadow.

I moved on for one very specific reason, the clueless owner. This is the most unprofessional establishment I have ever gone to. The owner has no idea on how to run a business which is why he will run his third and final bowling alley right into the ground.

Last time I tried to eat here, they gave me 2 half eaten old halfs of burgers in place of 1 fresh one. The nasty girl at the snack counter said she washed them in the sink so they were clean. ALWAYS bring your own food, they let you do it anyway.

Comment Date: 1/19/2013 Name: outrage
Leagues are leaving mid season because of the fake rennovation. the only thing thats been done is an alleged new rug that they literally just duct taped down, almost killed myself tripping over it recently. this place is a hazard and should be forced to rennovate or closed down.

This place is insane, I know 100% theyre never going to fix a thing about this dump, but its no excuse for why ponytail man is still meddling with the shot! The biggest problem with this place is the shot changes every week, and EVERYBODY knows whos doing it, and the fact that this guy is still employed here is INSANE.

Comment Date: 10/2/2012 Name: deb
Stopped into the bar and nearly broke my neck when I stepped into a broken tile. I nearly fell face first. The bar is ridiculously dark and there are different kinds of tiles and many broken or missing ones. A real hazard, you’d think they would fix them or at least turn up the lights so you could see them.

Comment Date: 9/25/2012 Name: Jesus Bowler
Oh sweet lord i heard the worst blasphemy the other day at satan’s levittown lanes! The ponytailed man claimed he was the pope! Well he is not the pontiff of christianity so it only makes sense he could be some sort of satanic pope!

Can anybody that work there update us about the “renovations”….from what I remember, there were these “awesome plans” to modernize the place and stuff and that was like 2 years ago…still the same dump it was back then….

I went to south for the start of my league last night. As soon as I saw that there were no changes I turned and walked out. There are too many other bowling alleys that are nicer and I’m tired of the promises of improvements. My money will be spent in an updated, clean, bright place. See ya!

This place is a totally disgusting pig sty. Does the owner have any sense of pride in his business? I really think he could care less if the place burned down. That would really be an improvement and a bonus for the neighborhood. If he’s not going to keep it up then shut it down!

The fake rennovation budget was actually depleted when an employee accidentally tipped a pizza delivery man an extra 10 dollars. The duct tape industry may never recover.

I use to come here with my mom when she bowled on a league when i was like 5. i hated it but when i asked her when we could leave she said shut the **** up or the scary monster that lives here will eat your legs off. I learned to like bowling since then but id never go back here cause of that damn monster.

So i stopped into the pro shop today and i van’t believe that they haven’t done anything. What about all the renovations we were told would be going on. I’m not sure i want to wait anymore, i think we’ve been more thaan patient.

Comment Date: 7/24/2012 Name: FORMER south bowler
Last time i was here was 2 seasons ago, only one new thing they really need, and its a replacement for the guy who uses a squirt gun to oil the lanes. They refuse to get rid of him, but nobody wants to pay for some guy to play mad scientist with the oil machine. New blood would be good, but only if its replacing the BAD blood.

The most disgusting part is that they will no doubt do what they did at north, run this place into the ground until they have an unuseable shell that nobody can fix and nobody wants, which theyll leave to drag down property values for the neighbors. All the while theyll be lying about rennovations to try and make a couple extra bucks. its DISGUSTING, shows you how much they really care about the community.

Comment Date: 6/29/2012 Name: LIG
Very true, it is very expensive….even compared to amf, which is strange….The bar should be the number one money maker in there but nobody cares….They have that ponytail idiot doing bar specials and promotions, guy can’t do anything….He must have something on the owner or something for him to still be working there!!!

Comment Date: 6/28/2012 Name: Anonymous
The bar isnt even good, I got my drink in a leaky cup and when i told the bartender their response was to say “well you better drink it fast then you stupid IDIOT” and then puke all overme. plus there are no drink specials and its very expensive.

You think the snack bar would be open all the time, being the pool is next door….terribly run….guess they want to save the $7 bucks and hour they would pay a snack bar girl to be there…good decision, you make that up in one lunch….Has to be ponytails man’s decision!!!

Comment Date: 6/25/2012 Name: lovetobowl

God these people are diabolical. The specials arent too good and at times seem demonically influenced. $6.50 a game to bowl? Sounds dangerously close to $6.66. The guy at the desk even offered me a free game if i renounced christ.

They say they’re still going to be open, but they also said they were going to have rennovations by last september and over a year after those promises they have done NOTHING, so I would not believe a single word these LIARS tell you.

No big suprise they just keep lying, they dont care. its the only way to get people to come here this place is godawful and you have to wait 30 mins for a lanae cause theres no staff just idiot kids and Ponytail who obviously cant fix a damn machine running the place 7 days a week.

The blueprint has been finished and rennovations are set to continue. There isn’t enough space to make the building wider, so the plan is to build up. New South Lanes will be 15 floors totalling 536 lanes making it the biggest bowling alley ever equipped with marble and gold bathroom fixtures and elevators to take you to your lane. The bar will also be 15 floors with 20 seperate bars in it and another floor with gourmet restaurants and an observation deck and helipad on top so just wait!!

I heard the reason they wont fire Ponytail man is that AMF pays his salary for all the buisiness he has driven out of south to wantagh and east meadow over the last few years.

If your kids have to use the bathroom before you bowl do them a favor and stop off at the local abandoned gas station first, they have much better facilities. But hey, they just updated their old pinspotters from the 1950s with brand new ones from the 70s so wow its totally nicer now. Actually do them a favor and let them play at the gas station too instead of bowling it would probably be more fun and safer.

who did they hire? Boing boing and rob zombie from north? not sure about a snack bar lady, no doubt some cohort of the pony tail man.

Comment Date: 10/22/2011 Name: Stevie
Want to know what i think? They are much more likely to sell out than rennovate, more than likely they’re lying to you about both. Never even hired a new staff or got rid of u know who, as expected they found some new desk kids and waxed the broken tiles and called it a staff house cleaning and rennovation. Ridiculous.

Comment Date: 10/20/2011 Name: NMFMPL
Why is he not selling? Westbury and North were both “not closing dont worry” and then suddenly sold instead of promised “rennovations” Come on kegler or Ponytail Man or whoever, we know there isnt going to be any rennovating over the next 2 years or ever, nothing has been done so far and the great ponytail has yet to hammer a nail. So stop lying.

You are correct, he is not selling, being it’s his last center but would not be too sure about the renovations….They have said this for last 2 years and nothing is done….Not even the disgusting bathrooms……They should have least shown the bowlers something and did them over….There is no leadership in this center…thought it would get better once north closed and the owner was there, but its the same ole stuff….The wrong guy running the place, and I don’t mean the gm….he’s not in charge there unfortnatly…

Somebody’s buying this dump? Why would they do that? will it still be a bowling alley? I hope the get rid of ponytail man right away!

Comment Date: 9/27/2011 Name: Somebody demolish this place
This is an awful bowling alley. It’s one thing to think your **** doesn’t stink but dont put it on a plate and tell us it’s a prime cut steak. Looks like they started to rennovate but gave up, why would laspina ever buy this dump?

Comment Date: 9/25/2011 Name: fyi
Rumor has it that the place is in contract and john laspina is buying the center,let’s pause for prayer..

Started my winter league at South last night and the place is still a dump….What happened to all the work that was going to get done….They changed the machines?? For what….had more calls last night that we did last year….Hopefully my whole league will leave next year, because I know my team and a few others are def going to…may not even bowl this whole season….DISGRACE

As you can see, we have begun phase 2 of construction which is the rennovation of ponytail man’s office. This is to serve you, the bowler, because of the massive influx of mail sent to P.M. requesting that we make his office bigger and give him a decorative fountain. Do not worry, we will leave the rest of the bowling alley untouched as we continue to do what ponytail man says will be the best for bowlers.

who the hell painted the bathrooms i hope he isnt part of the renovating black walls?

u people just dont get bowling the lanes are giving u better scores the guys behind the desk are nice if u know anything about bowling give me good scores and nice people at the desk who are always there to help u out ill take that over lousy scores obnoxious people at the desk and a better looking place anyday im there to bowl aND have fun with my bowling teammates period and be treated nice

Comment Date: 8/26/2011 Name: Dill
Yeah that guy tony’s ok hes from north though, the only obvious thing that people are going to notice is that he’s there. The problem is they got everybody expecting substantial rennovations to be done over the summer and that has clearly not been done

Comment Date: 8/26/2011 Name: Eduardo
Hopefully TS Irene will make quick work of this decrepit shack! This place is a disgrace to land development, buisiness management, Ponytail usage, and the american sport of bowling

went there with some friends friday night place dont look great but the guy behind thye desk with the glasses was really nice told us the best deal changed my shoes 4 times didnt even blink an eye got me a good ball to use and the price was very reasonable made me feel important i like that much nicer then the people at wantagh and farmingdale

Comment Date: 8/25/2011 Name: tam
The floors may have been polished but they are all warped, cracked, uneven and if you ask me, downright dangerous. Cmon already fix them.

Comment Date: 8/24/2011 Name: Paulie
So haven’t been back here but im getting the idea that, ponytail man never rennovated, kegel just flattened out the lanes and fixed the pattern which they should have done about 4 years ago at the latest, and everyone is going to be let down. Am I right? By the way why does kegel need to re-adjust the brand new oil machine (as if everybody didn’t already know lol)

Comment Date: 8/24/2011 Name: ak
I went there the other day and it looks pretty good. The floors are polished, the rug looks like crap but the lanes were good. The bathrooms are disgusting, who paints a bathroom black! Everyone working there was really nice. Who is ponytail man? Overall, we had fun, the food was good and fairly reasonable compared to other places, and the total amount if money spent was reasonable.

Comment Date: 8/20/2011 Name: JB2
Yeah that’s the truth. In all my life I’ve never seen nonsense like that, taking it upon yourself to constantly modify the shot in a bowling center youre not even in charge of. What is that guy’s position anyway? Maybe that Kegler guy will post again and explain it to us since he’s an elite south insider.

Comment Date: 8/20/2011 Name: dd
I think its hysterical that this place hasn’t submitted a photo to this site. That would say it all!

Comment Date: 8/19/2011 Name: pm
The sad fact of the matter is that the owner does not partake in his own business. That’s obvious by the condition of the building that they are presenting to their clientele everyday. Thanks for fixing the machines but i won’t be there since there isn’t a decent bathroom to wash my hands in. Going elsewhere.

Comment Date: 8/9/2011 Name: OIT
Why would that guy mess with what kegal did to the shot….answer: He wants full control of everything in that bowling center and thinks his way is the best way, even tho this guys are professionals at what they do….ITS CRAZY how they let this happen time and time again….eventually the owner will realize when he has 0 business

Comment Date: 8/8/2011 Name: Anonymous
This place S*CKS… ok the kegel people come in and use their expertise on creating a shot that is fair and will improve scores…but that ponytail jerk goes into the oil machine and changes the shot back and guess what? everyone in the league bowls like crap again

Comment Date: 8/8/2011 Name: KID
Jesus bowler has it exactly right….ponytail man makes the place a disaster for the owner and the owner lets him just keep doing the same thing over and over and over again, instead of letting the people with knowledge in bowling and customer service, do whats right. I don’t care what anybody says, there is no way this place can stay in business after what was promised and what was done. Nothing is going to change throughout this coming season so don’t listen to whatever they tell you….Its all a scam to keep you around for one more season, before they close. Is it a coincendence 2 out of the 3 centers they have owned have closed…Don’t think so….and ponytail man still has in hand in everything that is done there…..SUCH A MISTAKE

Comment Date: 8/8/2011 Name: End of the summer.
The fall bowling season is coming, the moment of truth will soon come. Bowlers will come expecting solid gold statuary and diamond encrusted walls as promised, imagine the wrath that will be brought against this place when it still looks like a rainbow dump. Guess ponytail man broke his crayon so he couldn’t finish coloring the duct tape walls.

Comment Date: 8/8/2011 Name: To Kegel
So since you are an insider I have an outsider question. phase 1 was to just bring machines and nothing else, and phase 2 is do nothing, which phase is getting rid of pony tail man and the other guy and which one is making this place look not like complete crap??

Comment Date: 8/7/2011 Name: Jesus bowler
This place is like the bible. Satan (ponytail man) ruins everything that god (the owner of the bowling alley) has. but god doesnt stop ponytail man from ruining everything, so it continues until the end of time (when the bowling alley closes)

When thinking of a word to describe this place the same one keeps coming to mind…..DUMP!!!!!!

Comment Date: 8/5/2011 Name: pee wee
I bet they’ll just wax the floor again before the leagues start to make it look somewhat presentable but after a couple of weeks it looks terrible again. Let’s hope they do the right thing this time.

Comment Date: 8/4/2011 Name: kw
As an older female bowler, I am more concerned with the terrible condition of the floors and the condition of the ladies rooms. I have seen many people lose their footing in the uneven floors and the ridiculous rugs they put down. It truly is a safety issue when dealing with the seniors. One if our seniors tripped and hurt himself on the rugs and all they did was tape it down. As far as the bathroom goes, a paint job just won’t be enough this time.

Comment Date: 8/3/2011 Name: DGB
The rug was nice when it was first put down, but went to crap soon after that and instead of professionally getting it fixed or having that company come back and fix their screw-up, it’s been duct tape after duct tape for 2 years….very unprofessionally done, just like most things there!!!

Comment Date: 8/2/2011 Name: Typical
That sounds like their mentality. “you know who” is supposed to fix the floor, but doesn’t want to. To avoid working he makes the floorboy tape down the rug pretending it’s just a temporary fix. But the permanent fix never comes, just more tape when the old stuff wears out. Management does not take care of their responsibility this is the problem with this place

That is very true, kegel has to put in a password so only them can change the patterns. From what I heard, kegel has been there before and programmed the machine to make the lanes perfect and a certain somebody changed what they put in there and messed the whole thing up….And I agree, while kegel is working on the lanes, they probably can do some renovating on the apperence of the place…Don’t think kegel would interfere with that

Comment Date: 7/28/2011 Name: The Duct tape man
Phase 1 of the renovation has been completed ???? How can that be when I haven’t delivered the order of duct tape yet ?

Comment Date: 7/28/2011 Name: jimmy
just get rid of pony tail man and thats all the renovation you need for now i bowled at north for 20 years and i loved the lanes didnt even mind the look of the place you had a fun time bowling and the people were great until the last season when i was told that idiot took over the shot

Comment Date: 7/28/2011 Name: SEW
The bulk order of duct tape is ordered from what I hear, there is now way they can do the renovations without the duct tape, we all know that….

You are very involved in south levittown, who are you, I know everybody there from manangement to floorboy…..

Comment Date: 7/28/2011 Name: BGD
Okay, so while kegel is doing whatever with the lanes why can’t somebody maybe redo the stomach-churning bathrooms too? This place needs to get its **** together if its going to last more than another year or 2. Big deal kegel’s going to check the lanes, nobody’s going to notice, the place will still look horrible, and GUESS WHOS GOING TO OIL THE LANES ANYWAY. Whatever kegel sets the pattern at will be ruined after 2 weeks if they dont lock the oil machine away from schrank.

Comment Date: 7/27/2011 Name: ryn
if we are the outside people does that make you ponytail man?

Comment Date: 7/27/2011 Name: JHE
I hope you are right in saying this will be a showplace. What is kegel doing to fix the lanes….actually lanes or shot? They just better hope the bowlers in september believe that somethings going to get done. To all non-serious bowlers, they will have no idea any machines got replaced or what that actually means. They will just see nothing got done appearence wise and will certanly not be happy being they were told things would be done and not one thing was touched.

Comment Date: 7/27/2011 Name: Kegler
What I mean about kegel fixing the lanes they are taking a topography of every lane and making them a perfect as possible. This is an expensive process that will bring specs to perfection. Another item that costs money but the naked eye couldn’t see. They will also be writing a program based on there expertise to bring scores to there highest. I hope everyone gives us a chance

Comment Date: 7/27/2011 Name: tm
You cant possibly expect all of the changes talked about at south to be done by sept, can you. I heard that north hasnt even been closed on yet. Have the permits gone through, are the architects plans finalized. I think we have to give them a chance to go through all the channels just like you would for your home. Id be surprised if they could even get variances in the next 6months.

Comment Date: 7/27/2011 Name: Kegler
Ryn I am not the pony tail man and what I mean about outside people are those who don’t know the process that we have begun. I an very involved in south Levittown lanes and yes you are right the avg Joe would think nothing is getting done but believe me that is the farthest from the truth. I am just gonna say stay tuned !!!

Comment Date: 7/26/2011 Name: LGY
Those are the only 2 people, other than that idiot, that probably make more than $7.00 per hour, so honestly those are the only 2 people that should care….It’s a shame but true, 17 year old kids that make $7.00 and have no shot at getting a raise and are expected to actually do stuff really don’t give a s***.

Comment Date: 7/26/2011 Name: Kegler
It’s funny how all the outside people have ignorant comments. The renovation process is not an easy one. Phase 1 is complete now phase 2 has started which is the lanes being fixed by one of the most reputable bowling companies around Kegel. As for construction there is a process that needs to be followed and the permits are applied for it’s now a waiting game till it’s approved. This will be the showplace of long island when all is said and done

Comment Date: 7/23/2011 Name: chris
keith from south and tony from north are the only ones who really care about the bowlers in this building i bowled at both centers lanes are fine especially when north was open but u need to make the place alot better looking but u cant complain about the lanes descent scores

Comment Date: 7/21/2011 Name: fm
you people really dont know whats going on fixing the machines and the lanes is the number 1 prioroty in a bowling center and they are doing that you mwant pretty go somewhere else you want good lanes and scores plus nice people working there go to levittown

Comment Date: 7/21/2011 Name: PPS
Oh my god how do they find the nerve to open this place for buisiness every day? Rats the size of dogs, 12 year olds drinking on the lanes, “rennovations” that are really just bringing old broken machines from north, dirty and kids partying all around your car stealing all the cars out of the parking lot, PONYTAIL MAN, Absolute nightmare right out of a nightmare. set a nuke off on this property for christ’s sake

Comment Date: 7/21/2011 Name: BS
It’s all a shame….was actually excited about what was going to happen there, with redoing things and building extra lanes….Just don’t know why and how they told everybody about this and then the only thing that happens is old machines from north go to south….Waste of Time

Comment Date: 7/21/2011 Name: FNB
This isnt the cheapest bowling alley, unless you mean they are cheap and aren’t going to spend money to rennovate. If you spend $50 a week to bowl and however much more in the bar you deserve to have something put back into the place you’re going- this place is a nightmare. Other than that can’t really say they “owe” anyone anything, except they promised north bowlers and current south leagues these amazing rennovations and people are going to be pretty upset in september when they find out they lied.

Comment Date: 7/20/2011 Name: sl
Where does all this hate come from. Everyone sounds like this place owes you something. Its the cheapest place around, its not the worst, the people are fine, management runs it their way and doesn,t care to change obviously. Let,s face it, we bowlers want to bowl well and when we can,t adjust to the conditions we,re gonna bitch. Options, go somewhere else. I love the waitresses and my league and i,m not going anywhere

Comment Date: 7/20/2011 Name: LGT
There are def a few people that could use to go in that place, starting with we all know who….I don’t know how he can cause so many problems and still is the and “in charge”….especially with the owner there now, how does it go on. Manangement has nothing to do with that place and hasn’t for years…Such a shame!!!

Comment Date: 7/19/2011 Name: LTI
Well said Pam, tough to get a place running great when you want to pay kids $7 bucks an hour and want them to care about the place….I know a few kids that work for AMF and unfort it’s pretty much the same, but the difference is, they have adults in the important positions to help the customers….This place is a joke and if no renovations are getting done now, like they said they were going to there is a good chance it may close done shortly…..It’s a shame, I thought they were going to get their s*** together and it seemed like they wanted to over the past 2 years….GUESS NOT!!!!!!!

Comment Date: 7/19/2011 Name: Pam
Exactly. Thought the owner would set things straight when he came over but no luck you-know-who is apparently still working here and everyone knows hes better at yelling and making excuses than fixing things. All the problems in this place are caused by the people who they rely on to fix them, new desk kids in the fall isn’t going to cut it. They need to fire the people that everyone knows should get fired

Comment Date: 7/18/2011 Name: PAM
Ok so why does this place even exist again? They should tear it down and build something useful if they’re going to keep letting it deteriorate like this. The problems start at the top and they always opt for the easiest fix, get some new 16 year olds to run the desk, duck tape some stuff, and tell everyone you’re going to totally turn the place around. Not going to get an ADULT MANAGER to help the BOWLERS though.

Comment Date: 7/15/2011 Name: LRG
Theres one big problem at South and we all know who that is….and he doesn’t even really deal with the customers but when he does, is probably the nastiest guy i’ve ever met…..He just causes all the problems

Comment Date: 7/14/2011 Name: karen and a bunch of my friends

Comment Date: 7/12/2011 Name: LBOWLER
It is a shame….I’m sure the owner got a lot of money from selling north levittown and they can’t put back into the center at all. Even manangement can’t save this place. It’s got to be higher up than that. That’s the problem

Maybe a rennovation along the lines of scraping some of the filth off the floors, spraying some lysol in the nasty puke smelling bathrooms, and maybe taping the rug down again might happen… as for adding lanes? Ridiculous, not in a million years. I heard the town wont approve the permit, not like ponytail man would ever do anything more than the bare minimum anyway.

Comment Date: 7/3/2011 Name: Gray duct tape lanes
how they were talking they should have a whole new bowling alley by september. now it looks like machines are all ’cause they stopped work and the tiles are still flaling off the wall. if they want it to look terrible thats there buisiness but dont outright lie to bowlers.

I must say, this is now the worst bowling alley on long island….absolutly terrible….they should’ve just shut down north and kept south going, instead of moving the machines over. Makes no sense at all, and all the “renovations” that were suppossed to be done?? Nothing has been done at all….Very unfortanate for the bowlers that bowl there and everyone involved!!

Comment Date: 6/18/2011 Name: Anonymous

Comment Date: 6/16/2011 Name: The Duct tape man
Moving the machines from North to South ? This makes no sense at all. Both places were built around the same time so the machines at both should be about the same age…old.

Comment Date: 6/16/2011 Name: improperly assembled 82-70
I realize they aren’t rennovating but now they are de-rennovating to make the place even worse, at least put the machines together correctly if you’re going to get “new” 30 year old machines. The villainy of ponytail man is well documented on this site already but come on now, 30 ball returns any given lane is going too far.

Comment Date: 6/14/2011 Name: Anonymous
I’ll be honest, I had hope that they would be doing some major stuff, but as days go by I’m slowly losing hope…..New machines, actually old ones, just the ones from north…WOWWWWW, LOL

They are only exchanging the machines from north to south,trust me,no major renovations!

anyone who says they are rennovating is probably paul or ponytail man trying to get you to sign league contracts so they can make some more money before they sell. When north closes this will ofically be the ugliest bowling alley on LI and its getting worse by the day.

I think they could put a million dollars into this place and it would still be terrible if schranck were still there. He thinks he runs the place and I think we’ve all seen his work. The only good thing about this place are Keith and Kenny because they understand the bowlers and that ultimately is who matters.

Comment Date: 4/23/2011 Name: brian
i don’t believe they are doing any updating to this place because the leagues are ending soon and they haven’t started working on anything yet. You would think that they would want to show all the leagues that they are serious about fixing this place up before they walk out the door and never go back. Believe them if you want to but seeing is believing.

Why is this bowling alley a mess,because management doesn”t take care of it.I feel bad for you,because you believe them.They fixed up years ago and never cleaned a thing. Fix it with duck tape thats the best they can do.

I heard it was condemned, the pro shop is going under the bulldozer. nobody likes it here, bad conditions, bathrooms stink and you wouldnt even want to go in. food is disgusting looks like they got it from the garbage at mcdonalds. this is different where the owners are saying theyre closing and anonymous people are saying theyre going to add lanes.

anyone who honestly thinks nice renovations are being done with south is a complete moron. they havent started anything yet and with the great ponytail man leading the way there will be one lane put in then he’ll decide he doesnt feel like doing the work anymore and give up so the place looks like even more of a sh**h*** then it is now. There is not one thing positive to say about this place it is a complete dump.

Comment Date: 4/1/2011 Name: Pat
any one who thinks there rennovating is an idiot. They “rennovated” north last year by painting the railings and half the bar. Even if they added a few more lanes the place will be a dive again in a couple years because there is no maintenence. Bet the neighbors love the gutters and roofing pieces that have been lying on the lawn for weeks.

Comment Date: 3/16/2011 Name: Larry
Hey ponytail man if you need some duct tape to build the lanes i have 3 rolls i also have some old broken pallets and scrap wood you could probably use for a lane surface. just duct tape it down on the front lawn and knock the wall down so you can walk to it rennovation complete. if theres some wood left over you can make a roof but that would probably be too much work.

North & south bowlers,massapequa bowl & wantagh lanes have plenty of room for league bowlers and open bowlers,FYI.

Wow!!! So rumor has it that a contract has been signed to do these supposed improvements ?? So, a rumor is more credible than what at least 4 others have posted. Maybe your name should be Anony-a**!!!

Comment Date: 3/8/2011 Name: Anonymous
Well, rumor has it the contract has been signed to do work in South and stuff is already in works….so those 4 people including the owner probably are not real people…but thanks for commenting you idiot

Does anyone tell the truth on this web page? Comments are a joke.

Comment Date: 3/3/2011 Name: The wrecking ball
at least 4 people, including the owner, say that both north and south are closing in june. Standing by with the wrecking ball, shouldn’t take much to knock these 2 dumps down.

Comment Date: 3/2/2011 Name: john

Comment Date: 2/28/2011 Name: Anonymous
North is closing in June and South will be redone totally adding lanes and renovating the whole place……..Going to be awesome….obviously those people said that they are closing are ummmmmm, retarded

Comment Date: 2/28/2011 Name: john?

I was bowling here one time and there was poop on the seat and lane. the floor boy said its probably i just dont know how to bowl. Ponytail man said the lanes here are as perfect as a kiss from god so i am wrong. the manager was no where to be found.

Comment Date: 2/16/2011 Name: NICK & FRANK MORMANDO
Yes Levittown North & South closing in June. Thank you.

Comment Date: 2/16/2011 Name: bryan
You could see the closing of this bowling alley comming.

Comment Date: 2/15/2011 Name: Pappas
Yes we are closing in june!.

Comment Date: 2/14/2011 Name: bud
The post about closing in june 2011.Is it really from Nick Mormando?

Comment Date: 2/13/2011 Name: Annie
I don’t like this bowling alley or the pro shop. Bobby at the pro shop is arrogant, has an attitude and is nasty. Ponytail man argues with customers all the time. I told this to the management and did not seem to care about Bobby or ponytail man. Now my family bowls in AMF Center the next town over and I am very happy that I do not bowl at South anymore because of Bobby and ponytail man.

Comment Date: 2/8/2011 Name: Nick
We will be closing in june 2011 thankyou for your many years of patronege.Nick mormando.

Los employentos no hablo espanol y no allowo los espanos para bowlo.

There has actually been different managers for the last 2 years or so….guys that actually know about bowling…..will take a little turning around but they should be able to do it….ponytail man has taken some bashing huh…guess he should lay low and let the managers run the business, but I really don’t know anything about him, just sounds right!!

Comment Date: 12/1/2010 Name: B.C.
John Schrank must put oil on lanes with a paint brush.Stop playing games,or you will be the only one at south levittown lanes.Bowlers are going to AMF houses.

Comment Date: 11/30/2010 Name: bryan
South levittown will close in sept 2011 beacuse all good bowlers have found better places to bowl.

Comment Date: 10/11/2010 Name: marie
was a guest at a wedding held at south levittown lanes last night. It was dark because they had rock and glow going but we had a great time. The staff was really great and friendly. The bartenders were ok but the karaoke guy was fantastic. Dj in the bar did a great job. What a different place to have a wedding. The bathrooms could have been cleaned but the lanes were great. I don’t normally bowl but I would definitely go back again. I didn’t see anyone with a ponytail like everyone is talking about. Great time.

Comment Date: 10/10/2010 Name: Melissa
They should fire Schrank because he is very rude to the customers and now I bowl in Wantagh because he is just arrogant and so is Lurch.

Comment Date: 9/12/2010 Name: Donnie
John is so creepy he scared 3 whole leagues out of south this year with his creepyness. why dont you fire him hes a jerk to all the bowlers

Comment Date: 9/11/2010 Name: Davie
Its ok the guy with the bald head is creepy so is glasses man and the floor boys are all have attitudes and tell you that you cant bowl when the shot changes every week. why dont they fire shrank? obviously there to dumb

Comment Date: 9/8/2010 Name: fkbryan
why are all bowlers quitting this center?Because of bad bowling conditions.

Comment Date: 9/4/2010 Name: bryan
Bowlers are leaving in great numbers because the place is not run good.

Comment Date: 7/25/2010 Name: brian
started bowling here again recently. Staff is great especially keith pappas. things have changed a lot, casual atmostphere, people get to know you quickly. They definitley could clean up the bathrooms and bar. Old gm is gone which is good, I like going there but I wish they would just clean the floors, bathrooms and bar.

Comment Date: 7/14/2010 Name: John
You goys need to stop saying bad things about john. Hes a bowling jenus and he fixes machines better then those other a**h*les!! if you want to be better at bowling ask him he knows it all. And south is the greatest place on earth. you guys must not know how to bowl because the shot gets better with every week.

Comment Date: 7/14/2010 Name: Steve
Ponytail man is always on facebook talking to the children.

Comment Date: 7/12/2010 Name: Bob
Yeah sure John’s got a bit of an attitude but if you want somebody to stare at your 13 year old daughter while you’re bowling with your family he can’t be beat.

Comment Date: 6/26/2010 Name: Lisa
I don’t like the guy who has the pony tail. He has an attitude and talks down to customers. Jason S is nasty also and both are arrogant.

Comment Date: 6/7/2010 Name: Derek
Haha, thats the truth. Want this place to make money? Fire schrank as head mechanic and put a monkey in his place. The guy does nothing but fight with customers.

Comment Date: 6/2/2010 Name: Steve
Im sure they know how to use it, but it wont matter cause john probably wrecked it like he did to the last one.

Comment Date: 5/18/2010 Name: BC
They have a new oil machine, but does anyone know how to use it? I dont think so.

Comment Date: 3/11/2010 Name: unsatisfied
i went bowling. i wanted to have a good time. i did not have a good time. employees run a muck. no oily lanes. trrrrrrrrashay

Comment Date: 12/16/2009 Name: Taiesha
Shame its knocked down, my mom was concieved in this bowling alley and so was i.

Comment Date: 10/31/2009 Name: Steve
The celing just caved in and they demoed it. Too bad.

Comment Date: 10/25/2009 Name: ape
this place isnt that bad, Id go back. Its a little dirty though

Comment Date: 10/14/2009 Name: Mufasar
Yes I had an experience that was similar. The man was shouting in a raised voice at a boy who was in the bowling employ. I found it bad.

Comment Date: 9/21/2009 Name: Hamas
Scary man with black bald hair works here. He scared my child and myself also. I ran away and will never return for his manners are bad.

Comment Date: 8/10/2009 Name: Bobbi
All the employees here are absolutely hideous. The man with 4 arms yelled at my kid once.

Comment Date: 7/28/2009 Name: Bill
John is the ponytail guy, he used to be the mechanic now hes the manager of something, and yeah none of my league likes him either. Want a tip? Get this guy out of a position where he has to deal with people, because hes not good at it at all.

Comment Date: 5/24/2009 Name: End of season
I like it here, they finally got rid of the duct tape on the carpet and fixed the tiles so that’s a good thing. They have new TVs in the bar now too. They’ve still got to send the mechanic with the ponytail back into the back though, he’s always screaming at the managers and desk people and sometimes he actually does it to league bowlers. I’ll probably bowl at North or Wantagh next year because of him.

Comment Date: 5/12/2009 Name: Black Market
This bowling alley is great! Because people cannot fit strollers in the bathrooms they are selling their babies to us for low prices. The owner is also a nice guy.

Comment Date: 1/12/2009 Name: stroller company.
this terrible bowling ally is ruining business for us. because their bathrooms are too small nobody wants to buy strollers because they cant fit in the bathrooms.

Yaw daw dis plaec is good.

Comment Date: 11/6/2008 Name: Kevin
Every time i go here the bathroom has people trying to fit strollers in it and nobody can use the bathrooms.

Comment Date: 11/5/2008 Name: Dawg Bowl
You can’t fit a stroller in the bathroom. Frank does not care (The Owner) and treats employees nasty.

Comment Date: 10/27/2008 Name: Claustrophobic bowler
The batherooms are tiny here. I had a claustrophobic episode which triggered my schizophrenic second murderer personality which killed everyone. All because of their bathrooms.

Comment Date: 10/8/2008 Name: bossy lady
Bathrooms are very tiny. I am fat and cannot use the bathroom there because its small. The place is dirty and has cobb webs.

I like this Drum. The senior leagues in the Day’s Dawnin’ get Everton Toffee. the owner is a sugar and spice bloke too.

in need of new managers, all i see when i go is kids running the place. where are the adults??

Comment Date: 9/2/2008 Name: Anonymous

WHY are you people talking bad about this place it is the best center i have ever seen in foreverish you guys are all stupid smelly ppl faces go to south and spend alot of money u dumb face head stupids i am done i need ot poo now go and bowl at south its alot of good times for u and ur dog

Comment Date: 5/1/2008 Name: Regular
I’ve been regularly bowling at north and south for years now. South is a bit nicer, still kind of dumpy but where this place stands out is its employees. Sure I wouldn’t call too many of them “high class” people but the staff here is made up of bowlers who care about the sport and know all the people that bowl here.

Comment Date: 3/24/2008 Name: lol
why are you looking for higher class workers at a BOWLING ALLEY

Comment Date: 1/3/2008 Name: nick
Only thing I can say about south is please CLEAN THE place.

Comment Date: 11/7/2007 Name: MBizzle
Not a bad place for older people to have some fun. The staff is not exactly higher class but otherwise things are not too bad. The bathrooms are horrible. I rate it a 2 star out of five

Comment Date: 11/7/2007 Name: Mark
I went to the bathroom and found two lesbians have sex in the bathroom, the MENS bathroom. Another time I went and found 3 kids about the age of 13 drinking by the lockers. This is an unsafe environment and screams to be shut down ASAP!

Comment Date: 11/5/2007 Name: ginger & gus
it’s a poormans bowling alley…not a class place…workers and appearance are lacking. good place for small screaming kids or teenage drinking spot….I rather travel for something better and have not gone back for years, still hear bad things from other bowlers….it’s a dump.

Comment Date: 9/16/2007 Name: ummm…
Whoever posted below me definitely isnt talking about south levittown… unless they doubled the size of the place in the last month since ive been there. Theres only 36 lanes here and ive never seen any blonde manager…

Comment Date: 8/24/2007 Name: bennygay
Absolutely horrendous 72 lane center. Lanes are dirty and there was a couple actually having sex in the mens bathroom when i went. I told the blonde manager lady and she didnt do anything. This is not a very old center but it is in horrible state of maintenence somebody clean it please.

Comment Date: 7/25/2007 Name: greg
Oil- never on the lanes monday night.Pay good money to bowl I want oil on the lanes. Does the owner CARE?

Comment Date: 7/10/2007 Name: bill
I bowl on monday night. The lanes have no oil. I will not bowl next year because of the conditions.

Comment Date: 6/22/2007 Name: pin pals
Man im suprised this place is still here… went there recently, and its on the shabby side, but thats to be expected, this place is ancient. They keep it really clean and the lanes look like theyve been redone recently. Id definitely recommend this place.

Comment Date: 5/30/2007 Name: Bill
This place is in better shape than north but it still shows its age. The lanes and approaches are new but the rest of the building is pretty shabby. The price is right though so you cant really complain.

Comment Date: 5/17/2007 Name: Pamela
I have only lived in levittown for 7 years and since then i’ve always bowled at south and north. south is so much better. its closer to wear i live. it has a pro-shop and very good bowlers who have coached me and improved my average by 18 points within a period of 2 months.

Comment Date: 3/15/2007 Name: minnie
i love the pro shop, and the girls in the snack bar are amazingggg!! and those party hostesessss… wow theyre awesomeee, the mechanics… are okayyy.. i lovee jon & lukeee. and the managers are ill too.. this place is prettyyy cool ohhhh and also the bartendersss are THE BESTTTTTTTT!! <33 xox

Comment Date: 2/20/2007 Name: petie
i love south levittown lanes i bowl in the saturday morning league and i got 2 say its fun. i think that you could fix up the place a lil but overall ill rate it a 5 star! =]

Comment Date: 11/28/2006 Name: Tony
Hi I bowl in south but I have to say they need to hire adults to work the desk. And also have a machanic on duty that knows what he is doing not a kid. And the other problem is they don”t oil the lanes correctly one week it”s ok and the next it s*cks.

Comment Date: 10/22/2006 Name: C
I like Karaoke. T-Man is the best. The Bar maid Martinez is something to be desired. They have underage people on the premises that are either drunk before they get there, or while they are there and they start problems all the time.

Comment Date: 9/12/2006 Name: M
The GM leaves slot to be desired.

Comment Date: 9/12/2006 Name: M
The GM is not organized and leaves a poor impression on the league or potential league bowler. I will not join any league at south levitown lanes if he is going to have anything to do with it!

Comment Date: 8/2/2006 Name: Joe
They have free bowling for summer league players.But they do not put any oil on the lanes.This does not help a league bowler with practice.

Comment Date: 4/2/2006 Name: Frank
They keep fixing up but they dont have any maintenance. Rug needs to be cleaned; Fresh paint.
