Been a regular customer at Hi Joy for a while now and I can definitally see some pro and con there. The pro is the night shift… They seem to be on a short crew since I always only see Pat Ben and Nick working. The service they give is great. Very friendly and joke around to customers when the time is right. The girls in the restaurant have great service, but the cooks arent the best… Now come the cons.The day care has workers that dress very inappropriate for the job. Sweats and a old sweat shirt is not a great look for a day care… neither is your boobs popping out. The pary cordinator does not dress or act professional, sometimes I question if she knows what she is really doing. The worst part of Hi JOy is the bar.. Totally over serve the customers, argue with customers only to have them say sorry and order pitchers of beer. So go to Hi JOy at your own risk, but PAT BEN and NICK are worth go to visit

been bowling on a leauge for 5 years now, like the experience, but would love to see a more adult rock n bowl, like casino style. after all, you have three sessions, why not make one casino.

Going to try this place out and i’ll let ya know whats up.Have been involved with saving many big business owners butts and i have an open mind on how to run a business ,everyone has an opinion but i have the Experience . Number one is the CUSTOMER without customers you are done, many businesses forget that and just get by with upset customers ,i believe it should be a good experience for both.

hello first time to hi joy bowl and in the restruant. when i entered the restraunt i seen a women defenetly pregnant. just standing there with some other girl that was suppost to be working doing nothing….well just talking up a storm. when the waitress came up to the front from the back notice we havent been help. sorry to dis on the staff but if your a team get every team mate working and not use the excuse of being pregnant. sorry that is bull. i was 8months and still lifting my own weight. so if you let everyone pick up others slack your not going to have a good place
the lanes them selves were great. great people up there!

I have been going to Hi-Joy since I was a kid, and was excited that my son wanted his birthday there. Well that came to a halt when even though they have 30ish lanes they can only let two be reserved for a party, when I asked if we could rent a few lanes and bring his cake in I was told no because I wasn’t doing the birthday package so no cake. Very dissapointed and the women who handled the birthday stuff was rude!

Hi Joy’s a fun place to bowl, although sometimes the lanes have a few problems like getting bowling balls stuck, or the monitors freezing or showing the wrong score. These are easy to fix and not serious though, and it doesn’t detract from the experience much.
Aside from the usual high prices except on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Hi Joy’s a great place to bowl.

ive pretty much grown up in this place. The Hoems which are the owners truely care about every aspect of business. The lanes are mainted very well.Fast repairs. The front desk people are very friendly and will gladly help you. The food is awesome. its so good it will leave you wanting more even though you know you cant at anymore. There are leagues for all ages. a couple competitive leagues but mostly fun leagues. Best alley in the county if not the western side of washington

My team and I were there on Sunday night Sep 16th for league and then after we got done with league we needed to prebowl. Talked to Dawn at the counter and she kept us on the lane that we just got done doing league on which was fine. I understand it was family night which is no big deal. We were on 15,16 and the other lanes in use out of the whole house were 1,3,4,5,7,9,11,12,13 and 17. Lanes 18-32 were not being used. I talked with Dawn and asked her nicely to move the people that were on lane 17 because they kept walking up on us and she told me that she could not make them move but would talk to them and they still walked up on us. She could have moved them one lane down or moved us but she didn’t care. Its not like it was a full house never the less my team is really upset and not happy with the service.

We did the early session of rock & bowl. It was ok but not family friendly. Some R rated bowlers names (that I wouldn’t even print here), unsupervised preteen getting way too roudy, spilled soda all over the lanes, security too busy chatting to notice. Go with care.

The guy at the counter was very rude and it was like pulling teeth to get any information out of him. Despite having to deal with him, and the lady who yelled at us for letting our eleven year old use the bumpers (why is 10 the magic cut off age here? – we are all learning – only the second time any of us have been bowling – ever), we did end up having fun. And, yes, thank you very much, I am officially the gutter ball queen. 🙂

Nice place to bowl, good restaraunt, nice bar. A ton of leagues. The folks at the front desk are great and really friendly. The proshop is great, the pro Nick is very helpful. The only draw back is some of the bars waitresses appear to be flaky, maybe a bad night, I hope so.

I’ve been comming to Hi joy for about 3 years now and they have the best kept lanes in the county. they just started a new PBA league which i’m excited to join and try out the PBA oil patterns.

I love this place, very clean, well maintained, modern, employees are very friendly and helpful, food in great and can’t really find anything wrong with it to mention. Keep up the good work!

this bowling alley by far is one of the greatest in the area. the alley is very clean and ive noticed is cleaned abot three times a day. they have a huge amount of league bowlers and some fun leagues to bowl on. i would recommend anyone in port orchard to join a league here they have great rates and a good variety of shots for the lanes. and if theres any problem with the machine they get it running quick. this alley is one of the best and up to date im always impressed with there service and lanes.

I would like to say I have bowled at this location since I was 6 and I am now 23 and I still enjoy it everyday.

I’ve been bowling here since I was 8 – I’m nearing 20 years old and still enjoy hanging out here almost every day with bowling pals of mine. The staff is awesome leaving nothing to be desired.
I shoot a very consistant shot here – a little slower than most – but I keep up an upper 190’s average. Nick in the Pro Shop is one of the best in the business, knowing when all the new gear will be coming out and always offering some friendly info. on working on your shot when you ask.

Contrary to the previous comment, this year has been a lot better than previous years for me. I also am a female bowler at Hi Joy and have been for the past 15+ years and my average is higher than it ever has been, not only that, but the overall cleanliness and environment of the alley is remarkable. I personally would recommend Hi Joy to any of my friends because I feel very well taken care of when I am there. Keep up the good work!!!!

I have bowled at Hi-Joy for 20+ years and am in the top 10 of female bowlers. Since the new manager took over, the lane conditions have been very inconsistent and very much favor the male bowlers who are stronger and able to roll the ball harder, and the manager and his buddies have consistent high scores (high 700 3-game and high 900-1000 for 4). I did hear rumors lately that they are having trouble with the oiling machine, but I find that hard to believe. I may not return next season.

I took my family to Hi-Joy while visiting relatives in Port Orchard, and was quite suprised at how modern the bowling ally was for it being in such a small town! It was an overall good experience, and we will be back! But the best part was customer service at “Nick’s Pro Shop”, which was located inside. I felt very informed, when inquiring about various items, and learned a lot about bowling even though I just needed new bowling shoes.
