I’m very proud to work and bowl at this bowling alley. mr. bob to me is like my second dad and whenever me or my family needed help with anything,(not even bowling related), he would be there and it is just a great family place to go because of the wonderful people and great family that all goes to harford lanes.
thanks bobby

I have attended a couple of birthday parties at Harford Lanes. It has been wonderful. The kids have a blast. The price is right when compared to other options and other lanes.

Comment Date: 7/12/2008 Name: A Kingpin No Doubt
Bobby is Harford Lanes. Long time owner that knows his business and his customers. Aberdeen is old school but kids are welcome and he has run program there for the youth for years. Truly a Kingpin in local bowling lore.

Comment Date: 6/26/2008 Name: Oldie
To Anon 6/25/08. . . .you are right about that, Bobby is one of a kind, for good or bad. His kind are slowly passing us by, and when they do, bowling will truly become a “Game” Not a “Sport”.

the owner of harford lanes is the reason why i bowl there a 1 of a kind guy who takes good care of his leauge bowlers and their kids

Scary place on a saturday night. unless you know the proper hand shake.

Comment Date: 7/23/2007 Name: Long Time Bowler
Not sure what they mean by playwood. The lanes are wood, but it is an older center built in 1957. It is well maintained.

Comment Date: 7/9/2007 Name: Anonymous
i love plywood

I am currently at a state tournament and these are the worst lanes i have bowled at. Lane 18 breaks every time you go up and none of the tournament officials are prepared. The old lady at check in says there is nothing she can do about it

Comment Date: 3/27/2012 Name: salisbury native
I’ve bowled here many times.
SERVICE—very sometimey. Sometimes you get friendly service, sometimes not (and sometimes none at all—I’ll never forget one time I was riding by and decided to stop in and bowl a game or two. Even though I was well within business hours and there were a few patrons bowling, there was not a single worker anywhere in sight, and one of the patrons eventually told me “I was going to be waiting a while.” Well, they were wrong because after waiting and searching for several minutes I just left.) Also, there have been times when there have been many open lanes, but the operators decide to put me right next to a party or group of kids who don’t know the safety rule about not shooting while your neighbor is shooting, which makes the experience as dangerous and as annoying as it should be enjoyable. At first I thought they put me in these situations because the other lanes were about to be oiled or maintained or something, but as more people would come in, they would be assigned to these open lanes, so that couldn’t be the case, which means there was a lack of thought on the part of the staff.
EQUIPMENT—could be better. I know the place is old, but I’ve experienced quite a lot of jam-ups and dropped pins and stuck balls. Also, good luck finding a house ball that fits your hands and doesn’t have jagged edges on the finger holes. I like the automatic scoring system, but you have to be careful because it won’t tell you how many games you’ve bowled, and if you get carried away your bill can add up quickly.
*Also, someone needs to fix the description above—there are only 20 lanes, not 30.*
Just thought I’d throw my two cents in—bottom line, this place could be worse, but it could be a lot better too.

Must be a reason no website is up and no hours of operation are up.

Comment Date: 5/1/2011 Name: djohnson
Ive bowled since I was a kid and this is the WORST bowling alley I have ever endured. Usually drive to Laruel or seaford or pocomoke. The owner/ staff is miserable!!! It pains me to ever have to give them any of my money. Only go if there is no time to go elsewhere. Unless you just dont care how you are treated,..avoid at all costs.

Comment Date: 4/13/2011 Name: Nicole
I decided to have my sons 8th birthday party there which included 12 kids and 28 adults. Reserved my party a month in advance and gave more that they required for deposit. Was told about decorating the room and what I could get to do that. Show up half hour before childs party to decorate and was RUDELY informed that they booked another party in the party room and at ONE they would clear a corner for me and my 40 quest. When I expressed how unprofessional that was THE OWNER informed me thats just how he does business. Five after one I still had nothing set up for my sons party and with guest there I was HIGHLY upset and the staff there was completely unsympathetic and did not offer what so ever to make it right just if I didnt like how he does business I could go elsewhere. Long story short he didnt get another red cent from me and 3 weeks later he contact the cops to try and get me arrested for theft of services. Which were charges from the adults from the party that bowled that had nothing to do with my party. I pray that karma catches up with this jerk and noone ever gives him the business. Laruel has a very nice FRIENDLY bowling alley and that is where my 29 guest will go!!!

Went back there a few times since my last comment on 7/10/2010. I must have gotten lucky when I been there before. The past 3 times there was NO oil on the lanes, the old man at the counter seemed he would rather no one come in and bowl. I can see why so many people think he is rude.

Comment Date: 7/10/2010 Name: Andre
I dont recommend this lanes to no one, i called today to see what time they close, the man going to tell me it depends on “how much busniess they get”. one he didnt answer my question, and two he was rude!!!! We need another bowling alley in this vicinity

Comment Date: 7/10/2010 Name: Jim
I been to this place a couple times and never encountered rude staff. Maybe they have changed since the rest of these people had bad experiences.
Lanes are pretty good, but the setter/return equipment needs some attention.

Comment Date: 6/25/2010 Name: Sharon
I’ve lived in Salisbury my whole life and only been a handful of times. Staff is normaly unfriendly and rude which is sad because unless you want to drive half and hour you’re stuck going there to bowl. However if you can ignore the ignorant people it is a lot of fun, I know on the weekends they normally do glow bowl which always makes it a little more fun.

Comment Date: 2/5/2010 Name: SbyGrl
If they want to be rude, I can be just as rude as the next person. I am there for bowling, not to make friends with the staff.

Comment Date: 1/2/2010 Name: Seriously?
I just called after reading all the comments about the rude staff ALL TRUE! the man hung up on me and told me that there was no set closing time so if I want to bowl tonight to hurry up. I’m thinking i’m gonna go to pocomoke instead XD

Comment Date: 12/17/2009 Name: mdman
There used to be a nice bowling alley called Wicomico Lanes that was located on Salisbury’s north end. That closed many years ago. It even used to have duck pins which were great for kids and people without a lot of physical strength. I’ve not been to Cherokee Lanes for years. I’m hoping that the negative comments about the facility are exaggerated. I sure hope the place will be good for me to take the family.

Comment Date: 9/24/2009 Name: ema
I called inquiring about hours of operations & B-parties. the guy john was rather RUDE. why bother anwering if they get annoy about the same question all the time. maybe they need an automated answering service. I have been there before while back and the feeling was “need shoes give ID, pay, bowl and go don’t care if you come back. I know there was a shootingsometime ago. I thought I”ll check it out again. they definatelly will not host my party. I see I’m not the only one that had a negative experience. to bad.

Comment Date: 9/24/2009 Name: E.
I second Mark’s opinion on 7/20. it is obvious if we asked is because we don’t know. I stoped by inquiring about hours of operations, fees and if they do a B-days parties. And I was ignored for a while I thought because they may thought I didn’t speak English. They sure are RUDE, U’N-PROFESSIONAL, and UN-HAPPY individuals.Do they get pay I wonder, Who owns this place? I really don’t need to know, but I think, that only certain people are welcome there, it is sad to realize that someone has the opportunity to provide a fun recreational environment for family activities, but neglects and lacks communication and social skill toward our community.

Cherokee lanes staff is mean

Comment Date: 11/16/2008 Name: Eric
If you’re not in a league don’t bother with this establishment they have no interest in any walk-in business.Staff are rude and they open and close depending on whether or not they’re busy.Posted hours are just general guidelines.

Comment Date: 11/10/2008 Name: Anonymous
lived here my whole life, im 28…ive been here maybe 5 times. my family always drove soemwhere else (pocomoke or seaford) because of the rudeness of staff. they need to treat their guests with repect and diginity. families go out to bowl FOR FUN and to get away from stress!!!

Comment Date: 10/22/2008 Name: gerald schoolfield
If cherokee lanes cause everybody that much heartache then drive about 30 more minutes south to pocomoke to the eastern shore lanes. they have there own website… the building has been remodeled roughly bout 2 or 3 years ago and the best thing about it is that its wheelchair friendly. and the staff is great. so if u dont mind the drive ride on down to pocomoke and it will be worth the drive.

Comment Date: 10/12/2008 Name: No Thank You
These lanes at his bowling alley are HORRIBLE!! They fixed up everything else in the place except the darn lanes… The balls are always getting stuck, pins always getting stuck.. I think the pins are even as old as the building.. Someone made a comment here too that the employee are rude, well i have to agree with that. You ask them a question about something and they look at you as though you are asking a dumb question. The food service people are not friendly at all either.

Comment Date: 5/26/2008 Name: Dysons
Reading these comments was all the reason for me and my family not to patron this bowling alley. We will find other resources to have fun while we are in Salisbury. Thank you past guest.

Comment Date: 4/17/2008 Name: Monic
I had out of town guests and we decided to take our families bowling. All together we had a group of 13. The moment we walked in the door we were greeted with rudeness. An employee that was standing at the door said “I hope your not here to bowl?” What else would we have been there for!?! Then we were told that there was a tournament going on and that there was only one lane available all the way in the corner. We said that was fine. She then said but its not up to me if you can play the lane. You will have to talk to the guy at the counter. Well he was just as rude and said they did not have any lanes available. I was very upset but just escorted my family and guests out. I guess they did not want my money. I felt that it was discrimination as well. Very disappointing. Also left a bad taste for my guests who had never been to the area. Horrible!!

Comment Date: 12/27/2007 Name: Dee
Bowling Alley staff is rather rude and abrasive most nights, i bowl here two or three times a week and the lanes are good, although machinery often breaks down. Wish there was another bowling option without having to drive 45 min. to an hour.

Comment Date: 11/27/2007 Name: Anonymous
I second the comment made in june. Please list days and hours of operation. Thank You

My boyfriend and I had our first date at the Towson Lanes and had a wonderful time. Once a month we go bowling. The staff are friendly, helpful, and most of all the place is clean. You won’t regret spending some quality time with your friends and family to have lots of fun. The food is tasty too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Comment Date: 11/11/2008 Name: t-Licious
I got my balls cleaned there for only $2.00. Thats a bargain compared to downtown Baltimore. I’d stay away from the hot wax though. OUCHHHH!!!

Comment Date: 9/20/2008 Name: drew
if you are there with a hot girl, who cares how good the food is?! just enjoy yourself and enjoy the time you get to share with those you love

The lanes are ok, gut be sure to eat before you come there. If you are of advanced skill, then be careful, your ball WILL come out a hot mess.

Rinaldi’s Riverdale Bowl Comments
Comment Date: 4/25/2012 Name: League Bowler
I would like to say that I like the bowling alley overall. The problems I see are the rates are pretty high even for league bowlers. I also would like to add that the management has terrible customer service skills. She yells everytime someone asks a question which is ridiculous. I am not sure if Miss Pat was desperate or knows no better but when Tammy quit – that was pretty much a done deal or good customer service skills at Rinaldi’s.

Comment Date: 3/12/2012 Name: Big Bowler
Two things that need to be fixed; for some reason when I bowl mulitiple games at your pre-paid bowling lanes, the system will shut down before I have completed bowling. The attendant Mickey is in need of some major customer service skills training.

Comment Date: 2/10/2012 Name: league bowler
I want to say thank you for repairing the holes in the parking lot Pat . Now please fix your customer service problems. How could you let someone set tammy up like that.

Comment Date: 2/1/2012 Name: league bowler
Not only did Tammy leave but also Berlin.I think that that was a major loss to a staff that already had major customer service issues.And when is the pot hole in the parking lot going to get repaired.Its been over 3 months now. This center is slowly going down hill again .And I cannot believe that Mickey is back at the counter.what is going on are they trying to run customers away.I for one don,t think that I will return next season. very sad situation over there.

Comment Date: 1/23/2012 Name: A bowler for years
How bad news travel so fast. Today I was told that Tammy has quit working at Rinaldi’s. Why I am not sure but I think that was a huge mistake. Tammy will surely be missed and I wish her nd her family all the very best, I would have rather see her there when I come in to bowl. She is very pleasant with me I never have any complaints about her or the staff that works on her shift. I hope no one else decides to quit, if so I am not sure if i willl continue to bowl there… But I am only one person sharing my opinion..

Comment Date: 1/4/2012 Name: tournament bowler
Was here just this past weekend for a tournament. The staff was very friendly & helpful. The only negative comment I can make about the place was that they need to be more attentive of their floors. The actual bowling surface was great however the other tiled floor was very dirty, we had to keep our covers on our shoes because of sticky dirty floors. Other than that…great place with friendly people!

Comment Date: 12/26/2011 Name: league bowler
what kind of website is this put the bad as well as the good on. you are not being fair.
**Note** Someone would have to make a negative comment for it to be posted, so far, looks like comments about this center are positive! B2U Staff**

Comment Date: 11/29/2011 Name: bellringer111
Rinaldi’s Riverdale has been improving right along. Been a league bowler there for 10 years or so–only center around that still pays $300 for a 300 game! Took family group in over the holidays & had a ball with the Galactic Bowl light & sound show. Just got their hard liquor license so am going to try to have my class reunion there in a couple of months. Great place!

Comment Date: 10/20/2011 Name: A regular
IM glad that they added liquor to the bar, however the bar is in a bowling center and not a DC or NY club for the prices that they have and the lack of liquor in the drink. I brought a drink and it was more juice then anything else, if I wanted juice I would have brought it from the snack bar for a much cheaper price.. Im glad to see that Jasmine is back, she is funny and makes ordering food a blast I can eat again in the morning as well as during the week. Jasmine and Ms. T make a good team working together, Ms T doesnt seem to be in a bad mood whenever she is working with Jasmine.. The place stays clean and the rest of the staff is friendly I love coming here even though I think the prices for some things are high..

Comment Date: 10/13/2011 Name: never mine
I love the center its a clean very fun place to hang out. the food is the best , breakfast is awesome and now they even add extras to the bar,so you can get your drink on , i love it great job .

Comment Date: 8/24/2011 Name: *N.G.S*
I came in during the friday night league AND i LVOED IT. Everyone was dancing and having so much fun. The manager Tammy was nice but she seemed a little upset like she needed a break. The snack bar crew was pretty fun but they could of @ least acted like they were hapy even thoguh I know they were hot and tired because the snack bar was so overcrowded with hungry people. I think the Ms. Pat did a great job. Its a little small because of how many people there were but I was VERY pleased. I can’t to come back next summer!

Comment Date: 7/24/2011 Name: retired bowler
The lanes are okay, but that lady by the name of mickey makes the center below average,has no buisness dealing with the public. Needs to find another job.

Comment Date: 7/18/2011 Name: Kenny
I’ve been bowling at Rinaldi’s Riverdale for a few years now and I have always found the place to be clean and mostly what you would expect from a reputable bowling establishment. The lane conditioning seems to be maintained with regularity – even on the weekends – which is probably due to their weekend league play. There never seems to be very many mechanical lane issues…once again credit to the overall lane maintenance and repair commitment of teh house ownership. They have what looks like a very nice full service bar area. I don’t drink so I can’t say to much about it other than MANY people seem to enjoy it and I have never really heard any complaints. The snack bar now is run by a new group, different from Ms. Kim of a few years ago. This group has a few more menu choices and seem to have greater interest in making happy customers. I have always gotten pleasent smiles and genuine concern with regard to the accuracy of my order and the quality of freshness and preparedness of the food. As a result, the snack bar is ALWAYS busy. But no matter how busy, Ms. T always takes the time to make sure my order is the way I like it and is always accomodating no matter how particular my order may be.

I have bowled at Rinaldi’s Riverdal, since the eighties….The Changes that Pat made to the house, was untouchable, beautiful and very costly. I have no problems at all with the staff there…Tammy is so nice and patient and always smiling…Mickey is kool and get things done that need to be done…Snake and his mom, (Tawanna) are so very good at what they do at the snack bar and the bar. I’ve seen people bombard “T” at the snack bar when she’s there alone and she gets things done. I beleive Tawanna is very kind and dedicated to her job.

Fun place! Good league house. Lanes run really well–no breakdowns to speak of. Like variety of food. Some people say their food is expensive. Have they checked out the HIGH prices at AMF lately?! ,,,and Rinaldi�s quality is much better. Went to friend’s daughter’s birthday party there a month or so ago–really nice set up, staff was attentive, & little girl’s pic. was put up on flat screen scorer (showed every time she was up to bowl–kids thought that was awesome)! Weekend light & sound show is the best I’ve seen.

Comment Date: 6/7/2011 Name: A real bowler
Rinaldi’s is a very good place to bowl especially compared to the other ghetto alleys in the area. You can actually park your car without it being stolen or broken into. Its hands down the best in the area as far as machine maintenance, they almost never have break downs and if your a league bowler thats very important. Now they even have flat screens, Crofton has them too but their lane conditions are terrible and machines always break down.

Comment Date: 4/23/2011 Name: Kisha
Snake’s mom behind the snackbar is an evil witch at times. If you don’t like dealing with the public than find another job. Their have been times I’ve wanted to get the salads but changed my mind because she is there. I know I’m not the only one but Ms Pat need to address this issue because its money lost. I feel I am very polite but the way she comes off makes me want to come out of character and curse her a** out. Ms. Pat needs to put a lock box on the temperature control brcause it would save her money. Mickey is the one that makes it hot as hell in there because she is always hot and all that does is dry the lanes out even more. Nice establishment but needs a “few” changes.

I’ve bowled at in leagues at Rinaldi’s for the past 10yrs, I’ve bowled in establishments across the country both chain such and AMF and independents such as Rinaldi’s. The bowling alley is quality, your not going to please everyone all of the time but they do the best they can. Its true that the staff has their days, but we all do. The bowling alley is a solid 9 on a 10 scale. The only reason I don’t say a 10 is because the temperature isn’t consistant from night to night and the some of the monitors for the scoring machines need maintenance.

My family consists of two granddaughters, 13 and 3, two grown daughters $ active family, and an active pup. We live on the outskirts of Baltimore, but we used to live in Silver Spring, and we bowled at Rinaldi’s Riverdale Bowl, finally left because the man who owned it let it fall apart. After he passed, his daughter Pat took over, and the difference is so remarkable that you’d have to see it, try it, and you’ll come back. They have everything, the place is immaculate, very attractive, and what always catches me off guard, the restaurant/bar. Our local place charges $8-10 for a small piece of pizza and a soda- and every time, we have to ask for napkins. There’s an obvious effort sometimes to get everyone “bowled” happily, since it’s a going concern, and people sometimes have to wait. A nice perk is the restaurant with good food, and a nice bar. Good place for lunch or supper, esp if you have to wait a bit. (We never waited more than ten minutes, if that). Pat and the staff try to – and mostly are able to – make each customer happy. A couple of the managers can be brusque, depending on what’s being asked of them (you wouldn’t believe the demands and crazy requests I’ve heard) but almost always, they’re right there to help, and they do. As for complaints about the managers, we haven’t had any trouble, and if you do have a short wait, you’ll wonder how they can get so much done – with people staring at them, juggling the phone and walkins, and people who walk in after having a bad day! They even have those neat really comfortable shoes, and that’s a huge plus for someone like me. The first thing I look for in a center are the sounds: people who are happy, even hundreds of them, make this sound that’s hard to describe, but you probably know what I mean……it’s pretty loud, but with a sound along with it that – my husband of all people! said it sounds like a happy purring cat! As in all things in life, you get what you pay for, and Rinaldi’s is remarkable in this day and age. A FAMILY-owned center. Pretty darn good I’d say, with all the high expectations and huge demands put on hard working employees in busy places these days. These folks have been a team for a long time, like I said, a family. Thanks from the Cales to the Rinaldi Team! Keep on, keepin’ on, you’re doing GREAT! Stephanie, Dan, Stevie and Sunny

Last year was my daughter 1st year bowling at Rinaldi’s. The experience was great with Lisa, Hazel and Danny. This year my daughter will not bowl because none of them are there to instruct. This year they have some non-bowling parents instructing. The food is great but very expensive. The staff at times can be very rude.

Center needs a lot of work, especially the lanes they are definately going down. they don,t seem to care about the dirt and gunk that comes back on the bowling balls. they have been told ,over and over but seemsmto fall on deft ears. The heat has at times has been unbearable especially on the lower numbered lanes. I definately will not be bowling there after this year. I can find something more constructive to do with my money.And i havent even got to the staff yet, NEXT WEEK.

The summer tour that is held at Rinaldi’s is one of the best local tournaments that my husband and I have bowled in. It is well organized and the schedule times for bowling start in a timely manner. Thanks John and Crew

hot and humid

Comment Date: 8/10/2010 Name: Bowler
I have been bowling thyer for some time now,and it seems that during the summer months it gets very very hot ,and hummid. almost unbearable. I understand that this year was unusally warm, but this has been going on for years this year only highlights the point. Many league bowlers are really concerned and are talking about not coming back if the management do not seem to want to address this problem. Bowling is getting too expensive to pay for this type of service.Also Why is Mickey back behind the counter. I,m sure She is a Good worker but She is not a people person, put that with the heat and you have a bad enviourment, and WHOS GOING TO SPEND MONEY On THAT. PLease help.

The managemnt is extremely rude…. NOT PROFESSIONAL at all.. Lanes are in good shape..They have the most expensive rates in PG COUNTY… There is a woman she is heavy set,darkskin don’t really know her name but she orks there full time she might be a manager, SHE SO RUDE AND HAS A NASTY ATTITUDE..THEY LOST MY BUSINESS BECAUSE OH HER…

Yeah, Rinaldi’s is a pretty decent place to bowl. I’ve been a league bowler there for several years, and the staff knows me. I’ve never had a problem with the staff, but it’s probably ’cause I get along with just about everyone there. I love their computerized score keeping and the low step-up to the lane. It’s MUCH better than Capital Plaza’s bowling alley; they charge an arm and a leg, have antiquated computers, and that first step up is a doozy! Rinaldi’s is a cool place to bowl, if you’re feeling up to some fun. It is what you make it. As the saying goes, “Good luck, and good bowling!” 🙂

Comment Date: 5/8/2009 Name: Use to do league there
Yeah, {Name deleted} can be a B*tch sometimes, I don’t even know how Pat promoted her to a manager. But everyone else is pretty much cool. Its sad to see that they raised the rates on Mrs. Kim, so she not longer owns the restaurant there. Now the food prices are ridiculous. Only because Pat (the owner) charges them an arm and a leg to set up in the bowling alley.
But since they are the only bowling alley that closes after 2am. That’s where I go if I feel the need to bowl.

Comment Date: 4/11/2009 Name: pooh
i love bowling there and its an really fun place to go the cashier is really nice. but there is always this one person who has to be so rude and that is the the lady that cooks the food she is the most rude person i have ever seen i asked for an hambuger she grab the money from me and than my food was not cook right or anything i think that she needs to be fried and she is always rude every time i go there.

rinaldi’s is a cool place to bowl but its no different than the next, its all in what you and your crowd make it. it is a little expensive
and if you do not get there early like 8pm you really should just go ahead somewhere else cause
they will be booked.

Comment Date: 9/27/2008 Name: Native Washingtonian
It seems like a bit much to charge $7 per game after 9pm here when other places are charging $5.50. We used to go here all the time back in the day but their prices used to align with the oher places. We will be going to AMF.

The manager TAMMY is so rude and unproffesional. She feels as though its not her responsibility as a MANAGER to provide her customers with any info. Customer service s*cks!!!

Appreciate the manager and staff at Renaldi’s for their the bowling experience they provide for customers. A clean neat and comfortable
place to enjoy-especially the maryland lottery.

What a great place! We were traveling on the East coast and needed to take a break from our travels and found ourselves at Rinaldi’s Riverdale Bowl. The people are fabulous and the place was clean and inviting. Wish they would have a place like this in Salem, Oregon!

I would like a listing of the number of 300 games
bowled in this house in the last 18 months, along with the names of the individuals.

A clean well lit center. Pro shop was great-well stocked and they took as much time as I needed to discuss options on ball choice and drilling patterns. Definitely will go back when I need new equipment.

That lady you mentioned a few years ago was Diane who is banned forever from that bowling alley for stealing all the funds. The generous bowling centre actually REFUNDED the winning for the bowlers which is incredible. I will always bowl there and feel they care about their bowlers.

Comment Date: 8/20/2009 Name: Matt
I see that everyone complains about prices. Compared to the other bowling alleys I bowl at (Severna Park Lanes and Greenway Bowl) These prices are the cheapest. As well as their Millenium Bowl. 4 hours of unlimited bowling +Shoe rental. See if you can find a deal like that anywhere in the area. (My personal record of 2 people bowling league style on two lanes is up to 65 games each. Believe me. it kills your arms for the next few weeks.) Overall. I rate this alley good on its service. Good on the lanes. The food prices I consider high but you go anywhere for entertainment and thats how its going to be. For all you haters, I don’t want to see it on here unless you’ve been to other alleys and you know how they are.

the time limit is to standard and i think that the partys should at least be 3 hours long thats why im not going to book with you guys so im going to find sombody eks

Comment Date: 8/25/2007 Name: Chris
I have tried to bowl there on 3 different occasions with no luck. The staff will sit there and stare at you unless you say excuse me. All 3 times they would sit there on a chair 5 feet from the counter and not say anything until I said excuse me. And then they said that no lanes would be open till about 4 hours later. I wonder if they think that they are being rude by making me wait to find that out or are they just hoping I will walk away if they don’t acknowledge me…

Comment Date: 4/25/2007 Name: Tino
The only problem with Crofton Bowl is the Tuesday Night League secretary, Diane. She will not yield for anyone and steals money and keeps it for herself and runs the 50-50. If she starts early, she has no money and needs to pay for her bowling, so watch out!

Comment Date: 2/20/2007 Name: MDBowler
Nice, clean center with a lot of lanes, though I always expect to wait 10-30 minutes for a set of lanes to open up. Except on Thursdays, the price of a game is steeper than I’d like to pay, especially after bowling 5-6 games with some friends but the staff is very courteous and friendly and I don’t mind helping to keep them working there. The millennium bowling they have on the weekends is very fun and is so popular that you have to reserve lanes ASAP.

Don’t go to the bar if you want to watch a baseball game. Ruth will not put the ballgame on for the customers, or any game for that matter. She makes the customers watch the family channel. 5/6/12 we wanted to watch the ballgame but we were forced to watch the ballgame on the little TV while Mrs. Doubtfire was on the big TV. This happens all the time!

I wanted to take my kids duckpin bowling to experience it before it disappears. We live about 40 minutes from Pinland. I chose Pinland because it probably offers the most authentic experience of any bowling center. This place has been around since the 50s I was told by the person attending the shoe stand. The center was clean and period correct, in the sense that there were really no frills. It had (I am guessing) 30-40 year old technology in the lanes and fairly well worn lane areas. We loved it. The place was fairly packed with a few leagues and a few parties. I would recommend Pinland to anyone. Matter of fact, if you have any sense, take your kids there one weekend and let them experience duckpin bowling. You will be glad you did. We will definately go there again soon! Do it before duckpin bowling is gone for good, and your kids aren’t kids any longer.
