I was in on a Saturday and the prices seemed Ok the man at the help counter was rude. The snack bar staff looked scary and my families food was burnt when I told the women at the counter she said that’s what it is suppose to look like.

Pinboys at the beach is a great place to bowl. I bowl there in a league on Sundays and the set up is nice. If your not a great bowler the leagues give u a fair chance to compete. I like the staff alot they are very nice and they help you when u need it. The lanes themselves are nice but be prepared for that god forsaken 10 pin there not very friendly on these lanes.

Pinboys at the Beach is so amazing. I started bowling in a league there in the summer of 2008. And I loved it. The atmosphere is so great. The people are so friendly. And the staff is the best staff in any bowling place i have ever been to. They have banned smoking except into a little room which i think is nice that way people can still smoke. Overall, Pinboys at the Beach is one of the best places to bowl I have ever been to. 🙂

The team that I am on & myself traveled down to Va Beach Oct 16th to practice for our Special Olympics tournament Nov 7-8 at Pinboy’s….I wish we had more time to stay but we had to leave on Oct 18th to be back in Fairfax,Va for our weekly bowling with The Special Olympics.
We traveled down as a team and everyone on the team enjoyed bowling at Pinboy’s although I found out that Pinboy’s is a independent house and not affiliated with AMF as I origionally thought. What was really cool was that if you bowled a strike with a differnt color head pin you win a free game we won a free game ticket.
We ordered our food which was really good and the large drinks were huge. The free game chances over rode the cost per game. We can’t wait we only have 12 days to go and we will see you on Nov 7-8, 2009 for the fall championships.

Hey I agree so what if the sport of bowling wants to become healthier big deal live with it….I’ve been bowling in leagues for 32 years & 41 total longer than you have been alive I bet. I can not make you quit but you would be alot healthier if you did. Bowling alleys are trying to make it a more family friendly enviornment. Until bowling get’s over the beer guzzling ciggarette smoking image bowling will never become a olympic sport and it people like yo that are holding the sport back…..There I kept it clean…..Good for me !!!!

I like pinboys it’s a nice house and the employees are very friendly. No I do not smoke…..I do my smoking on the lanes it’s healthier that way. The house is spacious amd there are enough lanes although the lanes are on the oily side you can make adjustments. It’s too bad pinboys is in Va Beach becuase I’d like to bowl there more often than once a year.
I have bowled 17 games at pinboys and I have bowled fairly well considering it’s only been 17 games of course that is over 5 different visits although in 2008 I bowled 5 games 2 on 11/1 and 3 on 11/2/08 I finished with a 192 avg (960 pins) with a 232 in the last game.
It’s such a relaxing atmosphere in Va Beach and I always enjoy returning to pinboys.

I’ve only been bowling at the “Beach” for two months now but Iplan on joining at least one league in the summer and 1 in the fall for several reasons.
1. The shot is fantastic there.
2. The people are friendly
3. The food is great and less expensive then AMF
4. The staff seems to care
I’ll definately be bowling there more often

If you don’t like the fact that smoking is allowed in the bowling alley, then keep your a** out! I only care about my score. So what if it’s smokey. Grow some b*lls, Pinboy Peter. You sound like a whiney, snot-nosed sissy. Pinboys is the best joint to knock down a few pins and have a good time. Fully stocked bar, great service, nice lanes, and the girls that go there are hotttt! It’s the only place I’ll go to bowl.

Well I no longer bowl on a league but I grew up at Pinboys…Started there when I was 7 and watched it grow to what it is now 13 years later…This place owns a lot of my memories and is a great establishment…Lanes have never been all that consistant but overall I loved it…I strongly consider this to be the best bowling alley at the beach!

well like im 14 so way to young to smoke anyway and why would i want to anyway its gross. but i mean i like that pinboys allows smoking. it makes the bowling alley a little less family oriented but if your like me and a little on the tougher side you dont feel like an idiot when you walk into a freaking non smoking bowling alley full of familys with their 5 year old kids. i mean for gods sake there are plenty of bowling alleys in virginia beach so if u dont like smoking just find one that doesnt allow it and the problem is solved.

the center has everything a customer comes there for if you prefer a smoke free inviroment then go to a smoke free house PINBOYS ROCKS KEEP IT UP

Comment Date: 8/21/2008 Name: i agree………..
………with surrounded by idiots.
All this talk of smoking issues with you people. Are you all wanting to make bowling a healthy sport?? LOL!!! Do you want them to serve rice cakes and such? Worry about how bad you s*ck, not the smoke.

Comment Date: 8/20/2008 Name: Fierce Tiger
Pin Boys Rocks!!! I love smoking and bowling.
I’ll sell my soul!!!

Comment Date: 8/13/2008 Name: Surrounded By Idiots
Good lord people…….it’s bowling. Leave Pinboys out of your lame issues.

Comment Date: 6/18/2008 Name: ISmokeandBowl
Pinboys is great! It’s one of the few bowling alleys on the Southside that still allow smoking. Don’t like smoking? Please move to California or go bowl at one of the AMF lanes in the area.

Pinboys at the Beach has something that no other center in the area has, and that’s a staff that genuinely appreciates that you choose to spend your time and money there. I would like to see it as a no smoking building as well, but I’ve been bowling for more than 30 years, so I don’t really notice it anymore. The new scoring system is nice- ball speed is shown after every shot, and you can see some stats on your performance at the end of your league session. Lane conditions are pretty consistent from week to week, so once you find the right ball, line and speed, you should see your scores improve.

I agree with the smoking ban also. It’s on a long list of other things I dont want a part of when I have the family out for a fun night. I would prefer not to be around drunk obnoxious people also, but at least they don’t affect my health directly, except for the occasional rising of my blood pressure.

Maybe a resolution to the smoking problem is to deginate half the house to smoking and half to non. My family has been bowling at Pinboys when they first built it in the 70’s early 80’s and it was Tunderbird. The family owned and operated atmosphere is always nice to deal with.

Comment Date: 12/18/2006 Name: Pinboy Peter
If it were only that simple Christina. Talk about smoking being banned isn’t because it’s opinion or because some people just don’t like it. It’s unhealthy for everyone around it. Have some sense. Sorry if it might “hold up” your game but it’s better than polluting people’s lungs. Can’t make it one game without smoking? You must be very weak.

Comment Date: 9/14/2006 Name: Christina
I think that pinboys at the beach is awesome. I like how it is not all high tech like all the pther places; it is simple and FUN! And as for the smoking, it should not be banned. Smoking is a personal opinion. Why punish the smokers because someone else does not like it. When you are bowling you can light up and not hold up a game. if you have to walk somewhere else to smoke that is just going to hold things up. The lanes are always waxed, there are enough balls to go around, and the staff is friendly. Keep it up!!

The lanes aren’t taken care of like they should, the lanes inside the student center of my school (college) are better.

Comment Date: 9/27/2005 Name: league bowler
I like Pinboys, they don’t need to ban smoking they actually have it to where the parents have to be at the bar or in certain areas. The lanes have had some problems before but that’s bowling. A good bowler should be able to adjust to any lane condition. I love pinboys – keep up the good job.

It is disgusting that they allow bowling in the kids leagues ban smoking.

Foul lights should be working and on at all times. It would be a good idea to turn them on so it can be a fair league!!

This is the best bowling alley I’ve been to, it’s lanes are always waxed, smooth and shiny. The food is great, fast, and cheap!! It’s a perfect family place!!
