I have no issues with this place. The staff is friendly. My boys enjoy speaking with Tommy at the Pro Shop. Lou and Janet are top notch. Gail the GM is very kind and has a great sense of humor. Its close to home and I find it a great place to go and relax and will continue to go with my family.

Karen you need to fix your typing correctly with the squeezed-in lettering. Is that what your mom taught you how to type like that??? You need eye glasses to take computer classes because it does not make any sense for what you wrote here on this public form. This is something to do about bowling not grammar school okay??? Enough said right back to you!!! Nope, there’s more added to the problem right here. First of all, there were too many ladies every morning at Herrill Lanes at every lane & there is not a single male bowling at a bowling alley. That is what I experience. A simple classic alley that looked like the 70’s nostalgia era. Imagine Mike Aulby (PBA bowler) sees this alley & he’ll say “Do I remember this alley that I bowled years ago?” People from around the world will be taking a good look at Herrill Lanes & they want to find out about the league tournament here. You have a problem talking about person’s grammar or disability & that’s just plain wrong for what you wrote!!! I been talking to professional bowlers for a very long time & somebody did quoted: “Nobody is perfect of what your bowling skills are made for…” Right or wrong. You did not meet professional bowlers like I do because I always watched them on television for more than 27 years & you don’t!!! I really miss good old fashion bowling from the Nelson Burton Jr. years on television & he was the best commentator on PBA bowling. My last 3 words, I’ll challenge you!!! KEEP HERRILL LANES HERE. SUPPORT THIS HOUSE.

Listen first of all if you can’t spell orspeakEnglish correctly you should not be posting on this site or any site for thast matter. If you cannot speak English or spell it correctly you are not credible. As far as the bowling alley is concerned it is an original treasure in an ever changing neighborhood and if you do not understand what the word “Nostalgic” means then lookit up in Websters ENGLISH dictionary. Do not knock what you do not understand. This bowling alley will soon become a LAndmarkin the community and it has provided many families throughout the years with good times and fond memories. If you do not have anything nice to say than don’t say it at all. That’swhat my mother taught me…what have your parents taught you? Bowling is an American tradition where families and friends get together for a good time. Do not come tothis country and BASH. Especially when the grass evidently was not any greener in the country you cam from. And it is quite obvious that foreigners are writing on this site because you write the way you speak. Enough said!!!

TO ALL PARENTS WHO ALLOW THEIR CHILDREN TO BOWL AT HERRILL LANES!!!! Recently arrested 23 year old child pornographer Michael Hopkins was employed at Herrill Lanes and was allowed around our children on Friday afternoon youth leagues!!!

Lanes are good, Michelle at the front desk is awesome, coffee shop is ok, the bar is nice but Jodie makes it the best; but leagues need to get bigger and late night management needs to lose the attitude – 9/10 – lots of fun nights

employee of herrill,
you can not go off on somebody like that on a public forum such as this. it creates problems for your house and you hurt business as much as you many not realize it. doing something like that is just absurd and you should reconsider bashing bowlers that have negative comments about your house because it gets around. people are always going to have negative comments you can’t let it get to you, comments just leave you with room for improvement. show some composure kid

First of all, I do not like the way that an Herril Lanes employee mistreats a NABI bowler & I do found out that a NABI bowler is happened to be a well good friend of mine so get yourself straight mr. employee at Herrill Lanes, this bowler knows more lanes than you do. This NABI bowler have been bowling for 21 years & you really called that “your house”? It’s a bowling alley not your fortress castle from London. He do not trash comments at any other bowling alley but this NABI bowler is 100% right about your so-called house of yours & this place of yours need some “friendly enviorment to the staff” that every bowler demands friendship & respect. And whatever happen to courtesy? Others posting your so-called house of yours & finally there is your name written here & gee, what is gotten to this employee working at this place here & my goodness, an employee trash talking bowlers here & gets an earfull? I do not get it. This NABI bowler bowled with professional bowlers from ESPN & this NABI bowler bowled with Chris Barnes of PBA on ESPN. And my NABI bowler met Walter Ray Williams at Babylon Lanes & he got an autograph from Mr. Williams himself. Do not even think of it.

I must say the lanes could use a face lift but jeez I don’t understand everyone trashing the house I bowl at three houses south levittown, herrill and sheridan and oddly enough im average 223 at herrile and 210 respectively at the other two houses… and honestly the reason i bowl better at herrill is because of the competition there… don’t be a wimp test yourself and ull be surprised how well you can do herrill is great..

Comment Date: 3/19/2009 Name: Herrill Lanes Employee….
ok mr. nabi bowler herrill lanes will be going synthetic this coming now u can stop trashing the house…ppl kill me..every house is up for improvement it just takes time…now everyone is getting what they always wanted but the question is how many of your averages go up 10-15 pins on synthetic? prob not much..therefore half the ppl complain abt the lanes and dont kno the half abt conditions…..

Comment Date: 3/11/2009 Name: Rein (NABI bowler)
Somebody is right about this bowling alley & it is one of the worstest bowling alley that I ever seen. When I checked inside, something is wrong about the lanes & the wood lanes need to be taken off with synthectic lanes, why somebody asked? Because synthectic gets a better surface than cracked-up wood & the ball gets a smoother slide straight across the 10 pins & it is like a professional bowler can throw it for a easy strike or a spare. And Herrill Lanes needs a major overhaul. Where are the new lanes??? Every bowler likes new lanes instead of older lanes & this is 2009 already.

The time has come: The old wood lanes at Herrill MUST be replaced with new synthetic lanes. League bowlers are complaining in droves, and I think I’m going to switch next season because the conditions are getting much worse, and the management doesn’t seem to care in the least.

This place is HORRIBLE!!!! The night manager has terrible people skills and i personally don’t believe she is fit for the job. As a bowler for many years i believe i should be greeted with a smile and a warm welcoming not worrying about when i bring my childern there to have fun with their friends if they are going to be screamed at because they are cheering each other on! There is this really sweet girl who i don’t know very well she works behind the desk monday- wednesday and tynell who are just awesome(you need more people like them). I have never met anyone as anal as cynthia. I think they should bring back that nice sweet young man who went off to be a police officer what a shame we sure do miss him. Another thing is the shoe rentals 3.75 thats crazy i am borrowing these shoes for an hour tops not only and i borrowing them for an hour they are worn by thousands of people and they cost more than a childs game. That is crazy, i just cant believe it. Out of 5 stars i give this place a 1.4. Not only are the shoe rentals crazy i don’t believe i should be sent to a lane that is dirty and has a full rack of balls and food left on the table from the people before me when i take my children bowling on a saturday morning those floor people really need to step up their game. Over all i believe this place is just horrible and you better believe it if it wasnt for the few sweet people you have left there such as jodie michelle tynell and billy i would be a goner!

I can’t see why people complained here – as someone who wants to be a serious bowling, Herrill is one of the best in the region. Clean, great lane conditions, not bad at all. I’d love to join a league here.

Herrill Lanes make you use all your skills. Some nights the lanes are easy to read. Other nights you are making adjustments on almost every ball. If you always want to shoot 700 with no thinking involved then do not bowl here. If you want to test your skills then come on down. The lanes are not that bad. They are just not easy! Bad bowlers who always want to shoot 200 only leave negative reviews of this house! Don’t be a Mary.

Horrible lanes… workers stand around doing nothing except for the desk help and the mechanic can NEVER be found… prices are fair but better management is definately needed! AMF is the way to go with rules.

Ever since Scott Hamburger took over friday night desk the junior classic league has been run in a more efficient mannor. Even before we start bowling the money is collected and scott always greets you with a smile. We always start on time and there is very little delay between sessions. This man deserves to be a promotion, wait forget a promotion HAMBURGER FOR PRESIDENT!!!!

This alley is sub-par, due to the terrible keeping of the lanes. Never waxed!

This bowling alley is super terrific due to the total awesomeness of desk person Scott.
