Delavan Lanes Bowling Folks, Thank you Thank you Thank you for making our late night bowling happen! We had 15 bummed kids when our lanes at Lake Geneva were reserved but denied when we got there. You generously made room for us (and at a price that fit our budget!) AND made everyone happy again! We had a great week-end and you were an important part of that!

I stumbled across this website and really could not believe that the negative comments were really about Delavan Lanes. We frequent the Delavan Lanes for all the opposite reasons that are reflected in all of these reviews. Roaches would think they were staying at the Ritz Carlton if they visited there. It is the cleanest alleys we have ever been in. Their prices are always great and we always feel so welcome when we go there. The focus is always on bowling there not drinking although there is a small bar there. Do yourself, your friends, and your family a favor and discover the real Delavan Lanes and judge it for for yourselves.

I know a woman who had her eight year olds birthday party there. I felt so bad for the kid. Mom and dad were drunk and slamming alcohol faster than the kid could unwrap his presents. I had to ask what were these parents thinking? It really became obvious they werent. The smoke was so thick, hadnt anyone ever heard of fans? The roaches were smart, they brought their own gas masks. I was not so lucky,had a asthma attac.

I think they should just shut the doors and allow only adults in. Even when the enviroment isnt crawling with wisconsin rednecks, laughing and allowing beer to drip from there mouths due to lack of teeth, the bowling alley still gives u an effect of a low budget 70s movies with a bar seen in it. I actually had an employee move me and my son down the waiting list on $ bowling just so a group of drunken locals could bowl before me. I was there an hour before them, they just rolled in sat at the bar and laughed and asked the bartender for two lanes. Well i over heard the Lady (Old Lady) that works there that we can just bump this guy down the list so they could get a lane. Well that just shows me, that i guess we dont drink enough there. In all there are two Bars in Delavan and delavan lane is 2nd. What i found was interesting was , i went once and they had the special olympics there bowling before $ bowling, which made me give them some respect. But when i seen all the beer going in and out of the bar and all the cigarette smoke around all the bowlers. Hell why didnt u just seal up the room and give them all oxygen mask.

Despite the criticisms that have perturbed my knowledge of Delavan, I have to agree with the fact that yes, Delavan Lanes is more or less a bar. However, I myself have attended it countless times with my friends and had an excellent time. This is due to the fact that I wasn’t stupid enough to take the word of someone and just go right away with kids, but instead I went by myself once or twice to get a feel for the atmosphere. Delavan may have a reputation for drinking, but this is Wisconsin, dumb***… If you can’t cope with the norm, move.

The bowling alley was on a scale of 1 to ten it was a zero but it would be much be ten if the dollar bowling was all day and not at six that was terrible my kids had nightmares because the people scared them and all the smoke and having a bar was a terrible idea oh wait cause delavan has tons of alcholics to ruin a kids life.

My goodness will never come back and will tell all my friends and family to never go there. The WORST bowling alley why not close it and turn it into a bar half of it already is you would get more buisness

Delaven is O.K. but it can’t even come close to comparing with Lake Geneva Lanes. Lake Geneva Lanes has way cooler stuff than Delavan Lanes. Sorry, but that is my opinion on Delaven Lanes because when I went there I was treated badly.
