Hey, I’ve surely got to declare, I really like your site. The colors, the layout, the entire theme, they all move correctly together. Anyhow, that is all I really had to claim.

Horrible. Saturday night bowling. Playing songs over and over and over. They will not take any requests. Management horrible. Their we’re only about 20 people here. And they wonder why. Really. Everyone complaining.

WOW,,, what a change the last couple weeks/months since I was last in. I heard the manager Rick is only running tournaments, A VERY OVERBEARING bar lady has taken over, atleast that is what I’m told, the manners of the front counter has gotten worse and they seem not to care anymore.??? What happened??? I come in from the PITT area for my family and we liked to bowl there… Well, maybe no longer… The staff need to greet and smile when people come in and try to be more upbeat… Hope to catch Rick at one of the next tournaments…

I have noticed in the past year or two what great strides the center manager Rick has taken to run the place. Being from the Pitt area, you do not find his kind anywhere. The Bar manager that works on Fridays during lunch is HORRIBLE and should not work the bar on Fridays. She cannot make drinks correctly and she seemed overwhelemed the past dozens times have I stopped in for open bowling and a drink or two with my wife and kids… So I now just get pitcher of beer and food from the snack bar. The place would be better ran if she wasnt there.

I noticed to be honest, that the manager that has been there now for a couple years has taken great strides in bettering the bowling center. I can understand if a league does not fill the center, they need to fill the lanes. I took a look at their flyers for the upcoming fall season and they look great. Brandon, I can ensure you that is the first negative response i seen anywhere about colony park lanes since Rick Mitchell took over.

I used to bwl here until i just got plain frustrated wih the management and leagues. It seems their attitude is because they do have a really nice center with a full service bar they don’t really have to cater to anayone. I had been frustrated many times because on one or two occasions while bowling in a league they actually put kids next to us and we were walked up on over and over. One of my teamates got so pissed they slammed the ball down which scared the kids (who were just trying to have fun mind you) and it really made me feel crappy. I told the kids father it was the houses fault to even put them next to us, and he agreed. The staff could have cared less. I was very dissapointed in this center which could be the best hose in the areaif managed properly, and doesn’t train their employees to be surly jerks.

I just went there last Friday morning and I was on lanes 1and 2…..but the problem was that my ball hooked before the arrows and went right in the gutter no matter where I stood.. The lanes were terribly dry and there were 2 girls at the service desk that were plain rude

This center has made sure great improvements in staff and scoring. The new manager seems to care so much more than past managers. He has a true love for the sport and I have noticed he will take his time and help anyone out, no matter their ability level.

Just for everyones knowledge we do accept contructive criticism and suggestions. Again, we apologize to anybody who has had an unpleasant experience and we guarantee your next visit to be a pleasant one.

Colony North could definitely be better.
The lanes aren’t anything above average. The food is way overpriced and the staff not particularly friendly. The owner runs three houses and I thought at one time this was the better of the three, but I hope not. I’ve scored OK there, but I don’t go out of my way to go there.
As far as the web site, Steve’s right. The last time I was there it was all wrong and it’s easy to see that it’s not on the list of priorities. There’s a LOT more that could be done on the site to get it to where it should be and make a better impression on people who browse. If people like the website they might be more inclined to stop by and check the center out.

I’m a frequent visitor of this bowling alley. It’s very poorly managed. First of all, the website is out of date, has the wrong prices, and they will not honor the prices from the website. Even the email link from the website is broken.
As far as the actual place, it’s poorly run. Lanes break and you have to go hunt a staff member that cares down. The front desk doesn’t know what’s going on, most of the time they are reading and completely oblivious to what is going on. One night our lane broke for over half of the session, and we had to fight with management just to get one free game! I would not recommend this place to anyone.
