Whats with this duckpin {deleted}? Is it a R.I. thing?? Bowling should be about large balls with finger holes in them. Not like bocce!

Comment Date: 1/1/2011 Name: Nick
I used to bowl here on a league. There was one specific employee that I really liked. He was always very nice and always cut me breaks. I like it here. The only reason that I do not still bowl there is because I have decided to switch to tenpin.

Comment Date: 7/1/2009 Name: Danny
If introducing someone to bowling definitely bring them here, because the pins will fall if you blow down the lanes, so they can think they are really good at it 🙂

Comment Date: 12/22/2007 Name: Frank Ferri does a great job.
AND supports the community. Good folks here.

Great people and a lot of fun. Support these guys!

Comment Date: 4/12/2004 Name: Ged Carbone
I’ve been to three of Rhode Island’s duckpin houses and Town Hall is the brightest, cleanest, and fastest. It is also by far the biggest with 32 lanes, enough to host major tournaments. If I were introducing somebody to the sport, Town Hall is the place I’d take them as the pins fall nicely and the ambiance is good.

Thanks we were all hoping by September as many of us want to return to Lang’s Bowlarama!

Comment Date: 4/20/2012 Name: Anonymous
as of now jan.1st

Comment Date: 4/17/2012 Name: Anonymous
Does anyone know when the Lang’s family will officially take over? We are all waiting patiently!

Comment Date: 3/12/2012 Name: Scratch Bowler way back when
@ Good news, I am sure once the Lang Family takes over it will like the good ole days! Ed Lang was a gentleman and a GREAT business man so I am sure his family was taught well!
It will be a welcome change to all the bowlers!

Comment Date: 2/27/2012 Name: Scratch Bowler
@ All the way, I so agree with you. Hard to believe that EP would hire that guy,really if they did their homework they would know Mr.NO personality is NOT the guy for a business dealing with the public for sure!
People think we are writing because we are jealous, LOL jealous, NOT we have a brain and we the history of this guy! Anyone in the circuit does not like or care for him,it’s a known fact. He knows it himself!
He’s wearing a path from the office to the snack bar back n forth. League officers don’t even know who he is imagine this. Neither did he nor EP ownership announce the change nor introduce him, guess that tells the story!

Comment Date: 2/26/2012 Name: EP Bowler
@ all the way, class? He needs to start at level K for kindergarten. God skipped his crib for many things, starting with personality, the leagues don’t even know who the GM is, they still go see Dave, imagine this? He doesn’t even wear the “white” shirt like the managers are suppose to do,he dresses like he’s in the nursing home, and it’s freezing in EP lanes!
Bringing him in to manage has certainly “upset” EP lanes for sure! He is not liked for sure!

Comment Date: 2/26/2012 Name: Anonymous
A all the way! LUCKY YOU UNLUCKY US! EP is already failing with the “chooch” for real! UGH
I know of two groups that had funraisers at EP that will NOT return because we have the “chooch”

Comment Date: 2/21/2012 Name: all the way
Glad the state tournanent is here and not EP Lanes. Veltri has been there ,what, 4 months and the place is like an upside down tomato can ,bobbing in the ocean. he really needs to go to some type of class…

Comment Date: 2/17/2012 Name: State Tournament
Just reminder the State Tournament will be held at Lang’s.
Let’s support this RI.

Comment Date: 2/17/2012 Name: Good news
Hopefully this place becomes great again. with so few good centers (walnut, oml, alley katz being the only ones I can think of) and all the bs drama I’ve seen or heard from doing travel and knowing people in leagues or subbing it’s just all really sad. As it stands now youve got 2 decent choices up north for next year- walnut and Langs and down south oml and maybe alley Katz. These other centers need to listen up and get their shot together

Comment Date: 1/17/2012 Name: EP Bowler
It will be great to have Lang’s Bowlarama BACK as Lang’s! Ed Lang was a real gentleman,he knew the business,he was hands on and ran a great bowling center. He worked everyday and he knew who his customers were!
EP is privastley owned and I have NEVER seen either owner at the center invovled with we the bowlers,they let others run their fscilitys in the lane.
WTG Lang’s YIPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
Corporate is usually not good you are correct.

Comment Date: 1/16/2012 Name: Strike/Spare
So glad the Lang family is taking over the bowling Center. Make your father,grabdfather PROUD. Bring back the Ed Lang Bowlarama!

Comment Date: 1/12/2012 Name: Lang’s bowler
Heard that Bob Toth is looking to buy Lang’s. Perhaps he could get some business back from AMF Cranston. Independent will be much better than corporate.

Comment Date: 1/6/2012 Name: RI Bowler
Way back when I was a Jr.bowler at Lang’s,Mr. Lang was hands on,he ran a tight ship,had good people working for him,WITH him,I am so glad the Lang family is coming back. Mr. Lang aka Ed Lang was indeed a gentleman. I hope his family bring back Lang’s to what it was.
I also hope they are able to get a GREAT PRO SHOP on board! Someone that can drill the equipment for all bowlers!
As far as the manager’s position goes, I hope they employ a person with lots of experience that understands the game 100%. I know AMF ruined this place,however if anyone can bring it back it will the Lang Family! WTG Lang family.
As far as the manager that ruined this center I believe he crossed the bridge on the East Bay! Hope he stays there and sinks that center! He fits right in with the element there.

Comment Date: 1/4/2012 Name: Anonymous
So glad to hear langs wont be amf anymore come the spring amf ruined all the mom and pop centers across the nation when they became amf and i hope they get rid of dm hes nothing but a jerk and is a coward they dont care about the employees nor the bowlers they only care about NUMBERS

Comment Date: 1/2/2012 Name: Good Bye AMF
Dont let the door hit u in the rear when u vacate Langs in May. AMF and your no good mgrs. especially the one discharged a few yrs. ago really put a hurtin on the place. Hopefully the Lang family can resuscitate the place…

Comment Date: 12/31/2011 Name: binary is a love language…
In my experiences at AMF Lang’s, I have had fair experiences, in leisure and competitive settings (ive bowled there in open play, practice, league, and tournament) Its a standard AMF center: prices are a bit higher then your independent centers, and the lanes are HPL surface (they will hook more than an average lane surface). Ive never honestly had a “bad” experience there and Ive bowled at Lang’s extensively. I think that maybe the staff could use more training as they sometimes do not know how to perform simple tasks (as a former AMF employee, ive told them how to..lol) but overall, it’s average. I do like the elevated lounge though behind lanes 1-10 (there is often a good game of Pitch going on at any given time). There is often hearsay that AMF is finally giving up the lease, so if it is true, I am curious to know who is in line to assume operations. It is a decent market and someone with the right concepts could do great things with the facility.

Do not ever join a league ran by Marty Jones he promises money at the end of the league but you get nothing

Comment Date: 11/19/2011 Name: Johnny Walker Red
Don’t go to EP the former manager from Lang’s is now there, LOL EP will tank for sure. The owners have NO clue what this guy is capable of doing,tanking bowling centers. I am heading to Walnut Hill 2012

Comment Date: 11/13/2011 Name: Jack W
I bowl here and my ball hooked too much. But what do you expect. Bowling away from your normal house, lane conditions are diffrent. I really enjoyed Langs Lanes, great food, good employees, and after a few games I adjusted, I bowled very well. Langs is a very good house. Going there today on oiled lanes. It will be fun.

Comment Date: 1/16/2011 Name: Nick P
Used to bowl here, ever week, 3 games. That was until I was treated like {deleted} when I went there. The lanes were breaking down on me and the lanes are poorly maintained. I either could not hook the ball or it hooked too much. However there were two employees there that I particularly liked. I tried taking my Brunswick Danger Zone there, and the bowlers there were giving me this MASSIVE look. At first I did not know what their problem was, and then I looked at the B on my ball. I was so pissed I got my money back and left. Really? I can’t use a Brunswick bowling ball there, and the staff s*cks. Not to mention their prices. $4.00 a game and $5 for shoe rental? Nah, I’ll head to Walnut Hill Bowl where the shoe rental isn’t more than the actual bowling. Oh well Langs. You have lost my business. I now bowl at Walnut Hill Bowl and LOVE ITT 🙂

Comment Date: 8/3/2010 Name: Nick P
THIS PLACE S*CKS.The lanes don’t even stop you when you bowl all you have paid for and then they make you pay if you go over. Then there was another time when there was a drunk creep at my lane that wouldn’t leave me them {deleted} alone… and all the people there were really {deleted} loud. They were a**h*l*s to my mother and me when she took me, and shoe rental is OUTRAGEOUS!!! $4.55 TO RENT SHOES?!!? I DON’T THINK SO.

Comment Date: 3/7/2007 Name: Ozzy
There is no drunk roaming that ally so those are lies. Nice clean place. Lanes are awsome. Food is excellent. Great weight selection for bowlers of all ages.

Comment Date: 1/30/2006 Name: dave p
I have been bowling here for many years thru the jr program and now adult leagues, they finally got the synthetic lanes back in September, this is finally a high scoring house with improving personnell. Which I have known for many years, I don’t know what these other guys are talking about. There is no drunkenness there whatsoever and the place is clean and it’s decent to take a date for a nite of bowling.

Comment Date: 11/20/2005 Name: Noel Getty
It’s just a nasty place. With nasty customers (that grab little 13 yr old girls’ butts) & a manager that approves of the behavior. The place is a dump & very frustrating bowling when the machine break down every 10 minutes.

Comment Date: 2/2/2005 Name: doris parker
I think this is the most nasty bowling alley I’ve ever been to I have three younger chidren and I do not think they should have to witness drunk females acting out sexually

Comment Date: 2/2/2005 Name:  john freeman
I love the new food and the employees are so kind.

@anonymous insider so are you saying EP never had the right GM? Xplain this cause we were please before November 2011.
You agree?

Comment Date: 5/5/2012 Name: Anonymous Insider
@ Birdie. EP Lanes should have picked the right person for the job. They wouldn’t be in this mess right now.

Comment Date: 5/5/2012 Name: Anonymous Insider
@ Birdie. More business for Cranston. Oh well. EP Lanes owners should have paid attention.

@Anonymous Insider It would be a miracle if this could happen!

Comment Date: 4/28/2012 Name: Anonymous Insider
Kathy heard your getting your old leagues back from EP Lanes. They will enjoy the free drinks and extra charges again. Maybe your sister Debbie will come and work with you there once Ed the GM brings EP Lanes down as he did with many others businesses.

Whats with this place? It s*cks rude staff and high prices, as well as all the ghetto people that go in on weekends and sundays is a different country when you walk in there

Comment Date: 3/12/2012 Name: Enough bs
What’s with this place now? Not happy on Mondays. Langs or walnut next year for my team, leaning towards Woonsocket. At this point I’d rather drive all the way down to south Kingstown then deal with people that don’t care and certain egomaniac bowlers who attempt to s*ck any fun out of the league.

Comment Date: 3/9/2012 Name: All the Way
NO dont get rid of them. Then Kathy will have all the customers for sure .. Bad idea, cops would park outside and pick off all the drunks like a duck shooting contest.

Comment Date: 3/8/2012 Name: Anonymous

Comment Date: 2/27/2012 Name: Sundy Bowler 1970’s
WOW So many negative comments,this used to be a great place to bowl. What has happened?

Comment Date: 2/27/2012 Name: League Bowler
Many bowlers are welcome to come in when Kathy is working. Free drinks are on the house!

Comment Date: 2/26/2012 Name: EP Bowler
DON’T I SAID DON’T go to EP Lanes, Kathy’s twin is there as well as a employee from the AMF staff, as the new GM,AWFUL JUST AWFUL. The “twins” are known for over charging the patrons as they worked as a team!
EP failed within 90 days, it’s dirty inside and out for real! The new GM has no clue. He is a 9 to 5 clocker! When ever did a GM have set hours? NEVER in the bowling world they work days n nights! NOT Mr. GM EV,no can do! EP has a few unhappy “good” employees (left) among a ton of new hires that do S**T! Shame shame EP,looks like OML & Walnut Hill will blow your center away.
AMF also,worse organization ever,and to boot Mr.GM EV used to work for them, go figure!
GOOD LUCK Cranston Bowl if I were you I’d head for the Hills & the Mountains!

Comment Date: 2/17/2012 Name: New season
With me next year in Woonsocket with a new ball from their new pro shop. Going where they care about their customers as I’ve been told by everyone I know who bowls there. No one wants a place that just stagnates because no one listens to us or cares what the people in all our leagues think

Comment Date: 2/17/2012 Name: Oh and…
Did I mention the staff too? Rude and ignores you they’re too busy messing around but no one stops them it seems

Went this past sunday to Cranston Lanes for Ladies Night, What an AMAZING DEAL!! Ladies bowl free and just pay $2 for shoes. Guys pay $7.50 and they bowl all night from 8-11pm! I will definitely be there again soon. The staff was extremely friendly even with the long wait. Once lanes opened up we were immediately placed on lanes!

Thats what you get when you have a bitchy staff at that place i dont recommend that place for anyone Stay away from Cranston

Comment Date: 11/24/2011 Name: Anonymous
I got convinced to move here from OML this year by a couple teammates… and regret it big time as does the rest of my team even the two guys who sold it. OML may be in the middle of renovations but it still blows Cranston away, they have a much much friendlier atmosphere down in Wakefield in Cranston most of the time its like we’re bothering them because of this I actually drive from the city down to Wakefield to practice. We will be returning to OML next year and hopefully some of the other unhappy teams will decide to make the drive as well. This bitchy atmosphere also spreads to some of the bowlers there who are the whiniest pack of babies you’ll ever meet making excuses about everything from the oil to the phase of the moon, trying to drain all fun out of the game for everyone unless they happen to be striking all night. Cranston: never again.

horrible customer service and management in that place will never bowl there again

Comment Date: 2/18/2010 Name: Anonymous
I went there this weekend, The customer service is terrible. It took them forever to cash us out and they made us buy shoes even though other people didnt have to. And it took them 15 minutes to turn on our lanes. Very unprofessional.

Comment Date: 7/31/2009 Name: Anonymous
as an employee there that place has never been run better in years

Comment Date: 7/16/2009 Name: Anonymous
This is what you get in a corporate owned facility. They run the place cheap and hire teenagers who could care less about anything but a paycheck. AMF Lang’s on the other side of town is no better. Try a privately owned place like East Providence lanes.

I bowl here on Sat. mornings and to answer your questions… the center opens around 11 and the service is excellent! This is the cleanest center around.

BE WARNED! If You Are Buying Food Go Watch It Be Made, They Don’t Wash They’re Hands Or Hardly Ever Wear Gloves . I Have Visited Some Family Members That Are On A League There & EveryTime ,We’ve Had To Refuse The Food . The Best Night Was When The Lane Server Dropped The Food & Tried To Serve Someone One The League

I called to find out the basics: hours of operation, cost and to give them the professional curtesy of letting them know in advance that I am coming in with a group of high school students. I’d already scanned all google sites to find said info, to no avail. When I called, the message machine was full. Can you believe that? This has got to mean that they do not check their messages on a daily basis. After reading all the other reviews referring to their second class customer service, I’m not surprised. Too bad. You’d think that the management (new or not) would want folks to tell positive tales…Really too bad. I still don’t know when they open. Damn! What am I going to do with my kids?!

You did a terrible job hosting the Pepsi Tournament on March 9, 2008. The hour and a half delay was inexcusable for such an important event. You should have been better prepared. The lanes were not oiled, the change machines were broken so that you couldn’t make a purchase in the vending machines and there was no national anthem during the opening ceremony. Very shameful and totally bogus.

how much does it cost?
for a lane or person

If you need help or have a problem with the lane you only have to ask them 3 times until they do something!

I cannot find hours anywhere, and even called to see what they said. There was no one there, and the answering machine did not list the hours. They have lost my business since I don’t even know when I can go.

I have been bowling at Wickford for a while and it is a great place. However, I did not understand why Wickford treated me so badly because I was a THL bowler now. They wouldnt even let me coach a kids team. I do not like how things are run there. Good day.

A great big thank you to Walnut Hill for the addition of the pro-shop, Custom Pro-Fit. It’s great to be able to be serviced in house with guys that know how to drill a bowling ball that works!
Thanks

Comment Date: 4/13/2012 Name: OML Manager
Stop by and check out the new Flat Panel Screens at WHB. We placed a new pair on 17 & 18 to show off what league bowlers can expect next year. hope you enjoy them. More coming very soon.

Walnut Hill has a great Pro-Shop!

Comment Date: 4/9/2012 Name: Pro-Shop Marketing
Hope Lang’s can set up a pro-shop like EP has, the owner of the Pro-shop had a demo there from the ball company,awesome way to try new products! Affordable as well!

Comment Date: 3/24/2012 Name: EP Bowler
@ Average bowler, you said a mouthful about the pro-shop, both guys KNOW what they are doing for sure! To be in a business like that (self-employment) for over 30 years says it all.
We are glad to have that service in EP as well!

Nice benefit added to Walnut Hill Bowling Center, a Pro-Shop with guys that can drill,talk bowling & give advise about the game!
A bonus for sure!

Hats off to Walnut Hill for allowing Custom Profit to open up the pro shop! This is one of the best benefits a bowling center can provide to the bowlers! We are so glad to have this service and so glad we have to Dave & Tim drilling the equipment! Awesome guys with AWESOME service! Thanks WN Hill & Bob!

Comment Date: 2/29/2012 Name: Excited
How nice it is to have a Pro-Shop in house! We get to drop,buy,service our bowling ball right there, the owner,tech,handles it all. NO more running around! More time to bowl!!!
Thanks Walnut Hill!!!!!!! Another good thing done for US bowlers!

So pleased that we now have a Pro-shop with a owner that services Walnut Hill. Thank you Walnut Hill!
We the bowlers are very happy with this added bonus!

Comment Date: 2/3/2012 Name: Patriot Fan
@ EP Bowler you are 100% correct. EP needs to look in the mirror for sure. They DID HAVE THE BEST MANAGER EVER.EP hired him as the GM but they didn’t let him be the GM! If they had allowed him to manage as he saw fit,EP would be in the top 3 centers instead they are in the tank sinking!
No worry Karma
On a positive note we are thrilled we have Custom Pro-Fit II is here!!!! The best of the best! Dave is well respected in the Bowling World,there isn’t another Rhode Islander that can match his knowledge,contacts and most of ALL his EXPERIENCE in the game of bowling!
Good luck Dave!

Comment Date: 1/30/2012 Name: EP Bowler
@Bowlerwithaclue The Independants are usually better as stated however the one that could ue lots of improvement is EP. They change managers every 6 to 18 months? They need to look in the mirror to see who the problem is,it will hit them in the face! Get the family out of the business!
EP had one of the best managers in the bowling world,but guess what, yep gone! The present manager is by far one of the worse ever! He lacks people skills for sure with employees and patrons!
Walnut Hill ownership is hands on!

Comment Date: 1/12/2012 Name: Owner
Thanks for every ones patience as the recent wind storm and resulting power surges fryed several scoring hard drives. If you didn’t see the owner perhaps he was working hard to get things back on line ASAP. We try very hard to give all of you the two best bowling centers in New England (OML and WHB).

Comment Date: 1/10/2012 Name: Bowlerwithaclue
T all of the bowling centers in RI fall into the realm of “easy” when it comes to scoring conditions. However I do not understand why you would promote AMF Cranston. The centers with the most consistent and numerous honors scores on a proportionate basis considering size and number of bowlers have been 1) Old Mountain Lanes 2) Alley Katz 3) Walnut Hill 4) EP Lanes. The independents also offer flexibility, lower prices, and friendlier owners/staff…something that will not be found at Craaaaanston.

Comment Date: 1/4/2012 Name: thebowlinggod
From what I heard at bowling these guys had a hell of a time getting things back up after a power surge or something knocked everything out and caused damage. I love bowling here I think once a new manager is hired things can get even better but it’s a good idea to take time and find someone that listen to us when we have complaints and do the job right not get some jerk right away…we’ll see who’s next.

Comment Date: 1/3/2012 Name: Doug
@ Aaron if you are looking for “good” looking ladies,stay at Walnut Hill,I stopped there a few weeks ago and the place was rocking. The bar was busy compared to many other bowling centers I frequent within a 50 mile radius.
East Providence lanes definitely need to “hire” some eye candy to service the bowlers instead of keeping family members employed. Its great to keep it in the family however once in a while you need to step out of the box and add some sweets to the mix.
Have a great season 2012

Comment Date: 1/2/2012 Name: EP Bowler
@ John F. I agree with you, Dave Abate is the best there is! Has tons of experience in this field,former PBA member,working with the Pro’s etc. He also has a great assistant working the shop.
He also did well managing the center,we the bowlers are not to happy he was replaced.
We’ll all be stopping in to see him there (Walnut Hill ) and throwing some games for sure.
Good choice by the owner here.

Comment Date: 12/31/2011 Name: T
I am a regular patron at this establishment and I feel that things there are sharply turning downhill there. The old manager was a bit goofy but at least he was people friendly, if we had a problem with anything, he was always quick to take care of things to the best of his ability. He could’ve done better with the staff though. But from what I understand, there were mixed issues there as well. The last two weeks there have been pretty bad there though and I have yet to see any hints of a new manager or the owner himself. We bowl in a league on Wednesday nights and we didnt have automated scoring, which isnt that big of a deal except that most of the bowlers dont know how to keep score by hand. And then the next night was even worse…I ordered a burger and it took them an hour to bring it out. I am a pretty patient person but I think there needs to be at least more management there or at least in the building when the larger leagues are bowling. As far as pricing, its pretty fair compared to the traditional bowling centers in the area. Overall, its a cool place to take the family for a night out but if you are a league bowler with half a clue (higher average) then you are better off trying AMF Cranston or East Providence Lanes. As far as staff, I find Nick to be very helpful and there’s a guy who works the desk named Dave who is great. The food there is decent and the bar service is average at best. But what can you expect, its a bowling alley. However, if you can help it, East Providence is a better option.

Custom Pro-Fit II (Dave Abate) Pro Shop will be opening in Walnut Hill Bowl in mid December…Thanks Bob Toth this was needed !

Comment Date: 11/24/2011 Name: Bowling NMNM
Everyone knows it’s that new manager he’s a gooftard, but talk around there is he’s leaving anyway so hopefully whoever is taking his place will get everyone back in line. I still like it as one of the best centers in the state to bowl but it needs a cool manager in the bowling alley for sure.

Comment Date: 11/20/2011 Name: league Bowler
Wow this place is really starting to fall apart, There’s plenty of employees working at one time but they dont do nothing, and when they do stuff they mess it up, TIME TO RETRAIN YOUR STAFF !!! And the lanes have been terrible for weeks now. This is gonna be the last year my team bowls here if they dont fix it.

I know I’ve given many positive comments, but this place is going down fast. The staff is being very rude, and its almost like they take it for granted that I’m going to keep coming back. I might not go back after this league. And I’m serious.

Comment Date: 2/26/2011 Name: Birthday party parent
HI,we have our kids birthday parties there every year, and tiffany has been there for most of our parties, she is always very helpful and polite to us. Also we bowl there on a regular basis and see the manager all the time, He is very friendly and always willing to talk with us. We have never had any problems with any of the staff, they are all great and i would recommend this place to everyone. Keep up the good work Walnut hill bowl.

Comment Date: 2/2/2011 Name: TO ANONYMOUS
Dude, shes just like that. Don’t take it personally. If she’s in a mood, she is pissy with everyone. But there are plenty of people there that provide great customer service. I urge you to give them another chance. Just go later at night when I can assure you that she is not working. The manager is there all the time. So you can talk to him if they’re giving you {deleted}. He’ll take care of them and probably give you your money back and let you bowl for the rest of the time. He is a great manager. GO BACK 🙂

Comment Date: 1/24/2011 Name: Anonymous
I went there over the weekend to book a party for my six year old son after reading the reviews on this place it seem like a nice place well I went there and I was very happy how clean it was and the money the owner put into this place so I go to the counter and talked with Tiffany she had an attiude with me and kind of threw the book at me to fill out my info so I filled the paper out and gave it back to her then she started talking to this kid while entering my info into the computer and I’m waiting there so I decided to go into the acrade where my kids were so she came over to me and said I need a $25 dollar deposit to hold the party well I said on the paper it states to put a dep 4 days before the party so I guess she didn’t know so she cheacked and now she was pissed off because I was right and tells me that’s wrong I’m changing it now and I said well are you the manager she said no and now I waiting for the manager to call me Jeff and I guess he only works nights they should have one on during the day and maker sure there customers are being treated fair. I believe you have to have customer service or your bussiness will lose money. I never write reveiws but the way Tiffany treated me still bothers me.

Comment Date: 11/27/2010 Name: Nick
I love this place. I have only had one pinsetter break down on me. However, today I was VERY surprised when I went in for my leagues and HALF OF THE LANES WERE BROKEN!!! I am not complaining, this was very shocking. The staff was still able to accommodate our leagues, just moving us way down on the other side. You have never failed Walnut Hill Bowl! KEEP IT UP!

Comment Date: 3/30/2010 Name: Amy
Me and my friends love this place and go every week and have never had a bad experience.

Robert Toth has turned this former pit around. It has been totally renovated. The bowling lanes are well kept, the food is great, and the bar rocks!

Comment Date: 11/18/2008 Name: Kurt
I bowl here quite often and find the staff very good over all. The lounge looks fantastic, the food is quite good and the place is much better than when Brunswick had it. The fact that the owner is a person who bowls up here, will listen to what you have to say and seems to care makes a big difference than some big company who only wants the money but doesn’t care what kind of service they give. The owner put in lots of money and effort to make this place nice for the town and we should support it as much as possible. A big asset to Woonsocket!

Comment Date: 8/4/2008 Name: Ivan Sinuit
I think this is easily the best alley I’ve been to in RI and I say this with the experience of having bowled in several tournaments throughout the years as well as participating in a travel league.

Comment Date: 6/18/2008 Name: lindsay
It is a great place to spend a few hours with family and friends, they have a sports bar, as well as casual food like nachos and slurpees.
I highly reccomend you RESERVE A LANE. This place is very popular!

They don’t understand how to run a bowling alley. I felt overlooked and embarassed the entire time I was bowling. When I asked for help I was forced to wait for countless minutes for the girl to get off the phone with her boyfriend. I will never go back and feel obligated to tell people how horrible this alley is!

Comment Date: 1/4/2008 Name: 2 lites and a coke
The renovations are coming along quite well. One of my favorite things at this alley is the service, especially Del “My Dear”, the lane waitress and Harry “My Dear”, the bartender… What a team! Keep up the great work! Thank You!!!

Comment Date: 10/20/2007 Name: Dave
i think the owners and management at walnut hill shuold be commended for doing an excellant job rebuilding this center. congratulations.

Comment Date: 3/13/2007 Name: Belknap
I’m a very dedicated bowler that bowls at the lanes in woonsocket and i have to say that it is a hell of a lot better than other places i have been, the lanes are always oiled the right amount and who cares about the arcade not being done and all the other stuff not being done, a bowling alley is to bowl…..and bowling is what i do

Comment Date: 2/12/2007 Name: Keith
It’s true that the renovation is still in progress, but the facility was opened before it was complete in order to accomodate bowling leagues that would have usually started in September (I bowl in a couple). Better we can bowl now than wait for the entire building to be redone.
Anyway, the new synthetic lanes are a joy to bowl on and the updated scoring system is just what we needed. I can only imagine how amazing the place will be once the entire renovation is complete. Before it closed last year the place was completely run down so I’m glad that the guy who bought it is breathing some life into it and giving it the care that it desperately needed. It’s a work in progress but any bowler knows that quality lanes and scoring are the most important part, so I’m glad that was taken care of first.

Comment Date: 1/29/2007 Name: Bill
They have re-opened. Still in a bit of shambles, unfinished renovation. I bowled there 1/27/07. I wasn’t impressed. I remember when this alley was great, back in the 70’s. It sparkled then. Looks more like an arcade now. Needs a snack bar and pro shop. WEB site is also under construction.

Your bowling center would probably be a lot better if you either had a manager that was there a little more often, or even a new manager. Other than that your center is great

the owner of OML is definitely not buying KB and there’s no way the manager there could buy it so just rumors.

Comment Date: 7/11/2011 Name: Nick
@ Anonymous i dont know dude i talked to the manager of oml and he said he might be buying it

Comment Date: 6/21/2011 Name: Anonymous
@ Nick
Highly unlikely that KB is sold.

Comment Date: 6/12/2011 Name: Nick
Supposedly the owner of WHB and OML might be buying this place… lets hope he does!!!! THIS PLACE NEEDS SOME LIFE!!!

I went there on the Walnut Hill Bowl travel league, and the pins were so old that the plastic was coming off the top of them. The pits sounded horrible and the scoring is very outdated. The pool is ridiculous too. Bowling is very overpriced and the equipment s*cks. The lanes were alright too. There was very dim lighting, and the masking units were so old that you would think that the place hasn’t been renovated since 1970. The guy working there was arrogant too. 1*! NEVER AGAIN.

This place is a craphole from the service to the actual facilities. It’s humane of them to provide shelter for down and out cockroaches but come on…

Great place. Excellent service at the bar and at the bowling counter. Friendly staff, clean lanes and cool variety of music. Beware of lane 8; it is haunted.

Comment Date: 8/25/2009 Name: Dlees
I LOVE the place, and I have always enjoyed the people & a the atmosphere and always enjoy bowling. To anyone that mentioned the flat screens. I think you are jealous of the flat screens everywhere, why would you even mention them, who cares. I see people in the bowling alley enjoying football & baseball while they are bowling. Grow up fool.

you should have better service. it stinks!

Comment Date: 3/21/2009 Name: Merv
I don’t understand the flatscreens hanging everywhere that are never used. Meanwhile there is nasty wood paneling everywhere, dirty floors, and pinsetters that constantly fail.

Comment Date: 1/4/2009 Name: KB Bowler
Yea, the big screen TVs are nice and all… and so is the bar… BUT COME ON PEOPLE! this is a bowling alley, so the bowling equipment and lanes SHOULD come first, but in this bowling alley they don’t…. and you should really consider fixing your lanes, making an effort to clean up the place, and just making the bowling alley about bowling, and not about the bar. And yes, the bar does make more money…. but that is only because effort was put into the bar. Put effort into the bowling alley and you will be surprised at all the more business you will receive.

Need to fix and maintain the lanes and machines rather than putting up flat screen TVs.

Comment Date: 4/4/2008 Name: Billy Joel
Fix lane 8 once and for all the balls have been getting stuck for three years now. fix the machines and alleys, forget about the flat screens. What about all the stained ceiling tiles. Put some money into fixing the machines.
Please!!!!!!!!

Great bowling alley. There is a big tv with a bar for going out with friends, plus rock n bowl on Saturday nights. Food, drinks, pool, a bar, bowling, and alot of fun.

Comment Date: 4/16/2006 Name: Oliver Anonymous
Awesome place to have fun with friends. Lanes are smooth and clean. The candy crane is fun to do also. My personal favorite is the huge TV.

Comment Date: 1/18/2006 Name: Anonymous
Fun place to go bowling, even better since it became smoke-free. Major problems with balls getting stuck behind pins and such. I have not finished a single game there without at least 2 or 3 malfunctions that required the help of one of the workers.

Comment Date: 11/1/2005 Name: Reinaldo Homogleiben
Excellent place to bowl. Synthetic lanes, frequently oiled. Beers are pricey, which is stupid for a bowling alley. Free pool some nights.

Comment Date: 7/10/2004 Name: Tammy Sholl
Very friendly bowling alley. The lanes are automated. The score is taken for you, giving you more time to bowl. Some nights there is music. Saturday night rock n bowl is available. One of the best bowling alleys I have visited.

Comment Date: 7/8/2004 Name: Tammy Sholl
This is a clean, fun bowling alley. My friends and I have a blast. The lanes seem to never break down, it’s all automated, so we don’t have to manually keep score. The owner is up and about among the people. He makes everyone feel welcome. Super friendly person. Highly recommended.

Classic 10 lane duckpin bowling house. Clean with superior customer service.

Comment Date: 5/15/2010 Name: Anonymous
