REVIEWS OF Norwich Bowling IN Connecticut

Ann-Marie Rabenold

Place has updated since I last came here but I can spend the same amount of money at the Foxwoods casino and have more time and fun bowling

Jeff Sharp

Clean, fun, great atmosphere. Was there for a special occasion on a Thursday afternoon and there seemed to be a seniors league going on but it had no negative effect on us. The food was decent too.

Jonathan Perry


Carlos Rivas

Good place to bring your family

Samuel Lobos

Lisa Carter

A great place to bowl, play pool, and grab a bite to eat.

Keith R

Had some lane function issues but, all in all had a good time.

Dollar games Wednesday nights

Andrew Impellitteri

BadBossman 51

Randy Destroyers

The lanes are curved and the shoes smell worse than the bathrooms

Adam McEwen

Seemed to have problems with their lanes...

Austin Prevost

Staff was very rude to my father regarding him changing his shoes above the bowling area. Prettt ridiculous for a family bowling environment. Won't be returning.

John Ingraham

Beth Kuzmenko

Adam Breton

The diner is expensive and not worth it. $16 for nachos and cheese with guacamole. Save your money and eat elsewhere. They are also very misleading with their items and prices. Verify the price of your order before getting anything.

maria greeneyez

Love it

Mikaela B

Dysfunctional service...

Paul Erickson

Paul Amor

Bowling was good, place was nice enough, door and beer was good too, there was only a 20 min wait. Need to go back tomorrow to check the receipt. Was double charged for shoes on 4 of 8 of us after we split from 1 lane to 2. Also not sure we got the pay for 2 get third free game special ...... Will up the stars if I get this sorted out tomorrow.

Joey Arora

I bowl'ed so hard here and the arcade is a fun place to be. Friendly staff and super nice to the kids. Would bowl hard hurr like once a month or with family.

Kayla Reiser

Friday night bowling with the black lights is the best

Debbie Alvarez

Jon McManus

Mike Galvin

Nice place good food

John Fields

The lanes are oiled nicely. The staff in the Pro Shop are very helpful, with a good choice of balls to purchase. You can't beat the price on their "specials" that are offered throughout the week. I've been bowling there for about two months and I'm very satisfied!

Joshua Allen

Great service and food is excellent as well.

Valerie Hayden

Lanes need improvement.

Peter Hollenbeck

DUMP. Needs major renovations, ( which looks like they started in 1992, but then gave up. ) only game in town, so what are you gonna do?

roger zahn

Not allowed down the stairs with regular shoes or beverages. I get on the wood bowling part but not the laminate. Very disappointed

Pamela Telgarsky

Fun time with kids. Very helpful staff only reason it had 4 stars is it was a little expensive.

Rob Mitchell

Great time

Samantha Brescia

I went here for a tornament and almost all the lanes were chipped or broken. I was on 10 separate lanes and each one broke down, marked the score wrong or my ball got stuck at least 10 times! It was ridiculous.


Kim Spaulding

Bowling was fine we waited over an hour for our food from snack bar. We ordered plain nachos with cheese it came out with be peppers and onions, cancelled our order very disappointed

Ryan Springer

igor pontes


Justin Cholewa

Little pricey.

Lulu Sabria bff

My experience is cool because you can go play at the arcade and you can take pictures at the photo booth and the most fun part about is is the bowling part when I got to go and arcade

Diane McIntyre

Great time!! Nice place. We will definitely be coming back!!

Sarah Behne

Our lane wasn't working properly, every time someone got a strike or a spare the machine would mess up and not count it, or reset the score. Almost every time we bowled something would go wrong, sometimes resulting in a majority of the pins not resetting properly. The cafe was also closed, and most of the vending machines and arcade games were broken. We told the clerk about the situation, and her reply was "it happens all the time". Overall it was one of the worst bowling alley I've ever been to.


Lane we used was hopelessly broken; pin setter frequently dropped an empty rack and was difficult to reset. Keyboard was disconnected from its podium and hung onto it by a few wires. However, staff was really nice.

Gary Pizzo

The employees seem genuine and are always happy to deal with you. Bowling is wicked fun. It gets busy but theres plenty of room so not crowded.

Bryce Dietz


Allie Richardson

Very fun, good cheese fries and a cool arcade right near it

papouka24 -

Had a blast, everyone is friendly

Andrew Sawyer

Great place to take the kids for bowling. Nice staff that's always helpful.

Ciara Williams

Pucho Torres

The best

timothy brooks

Lane was ok we had to keep going up to tell them the ball was getting stuck. The shoe rental was a little high for an old beat up pair of bowling shoes. The restaurant in the bowling alley closed before the alley. All in all it was ok for a Wednesday night.

Mary Coyer

Scott Nettleton

Constantly had to go to the main counter to change the score. The score was not kept accurately.

Alexander McMahon

Spent the day here for a bowling tournament and was satisfied with my time there. Being right off of 395 made the alley very easy to find. The prices for bowling seemed fair and the food seemed to be fairly priced. Also, the pro-shop seemed to have fair pricing, some items cheaper than you would see online, making a quick purchase before a squad less burdening. Some prices were a bit high, in the shop but generally decent. The building itself and some of it's accents are visibly dated, but that doesn't change the fact that this place was still a decent place to go and bowl.

Ann Bourassa

Atmosphere was decent. Most people were pretty friendly. Service was good. Overall pretty relaxiing

Princess Anna

Good family atmosphere

Shisters Zoey and Patty

David Smith

I have been bowling here for 20 years.

Marguerite Finlan

Great place !!

Sean Combs

This is a great place for bowling. The virtual golf driving range is kind of expensive, but the restaurant is good.

Jeezer Rodriguez

Benjamin Hosko

Great new lanes! Would be 5 stars if not for the fact that they did not offer price per game. We pre-paided 1 hr for 2 people = $30. There are 32 lanes and only 6 lanes in use. They placed another couple on the lane next to us. We only bowled 2 games in 1 hour. Manager was great when I talked to her about it and offered to extend our time to get in a the third game. We declined on principle. The other couple was in a league there so they paid $3 per game. We were not offered the same rate but we bowl in a league in Groton. The place is not busy on Saturday afternoon and the bar doesn't open until 5PM. If the place was packed, I am sure the bar would be open. Suggestion: change your policies, offer price per game, open the bar at noon, spread people out, and give younger people a reason to start bowling again by making it fun!!!

Nicole Jerard

In the middle of remodeling but still usable. New stuff looks good and the place really needed an update. All had fun, decent prices and restaurant looks good too!

Jennifer Jones

Atmosphere is nice. Good amount of bowling lanes as well pool in the bar. Game room for the kiddos and food counter with pretty good variety of food and beverages. Staff is always pretty helpful and friendly.

Mark Miller

Nice place, but the interior and the tech need major updates.

K Glover

I like to relax, play Keno, also fun to watch the Bowlers!

Family friendly,great staff,inexspensive

Sydney Verant

We went on a Sunday afternoon. The lanes weren't crowded at all and the prices were good. I think it was just over $30 for 4 of us. Theres food, a bar, and an arcade. We will definitely plan on spending more time next time we go.

Tyler Swinyer

Awesome place

Jack Farrell

Very pleased with my experience, they played great music and one of the staff Johnny was a real good character.

Kevin Puckett

Love to bowling there

Bob Stevenson

My fiancee is not a good bowler but I figured we'd have a good time if the bumpers were up. They told us we were too old to use the bumpers, so instead of a fun night of knocking down pins we had a frustrating experience. I do not believe we will be returning any time soon. We should be able to use bumpers if we want to, regardless of our age or bowling experience.

jakub Fontaine

Poor service and not well maintained

Michael Chapman

Good price for early bowling. Great coffee shop.

A nice hometown bowling alley. Clean, the balls are really old that are available to the public, but super friendly staff.

Jay Carson

Did a 6 year olds birthday party there. Kids had a great time and the staff took care of everything except buying the cake and ice cream. Great experience. Hour of bowling, hour in the room for pizza, cake and presents, then on to the game room with some tokens provided.

Sean Smith

Had a good time

Dottie Harris

We had alot of fun the league where on is cheap enough and plus when its. over we get a brand new ball such a deal!!! Awesome hah??

anna gallant

I am sorry to say that I was there to certify their new lanes with a youth bowler who wanted to learn and help out. Unfortunately, the manager told me that the young man who helped certify Norwich the lanes two years ago would not be allowed to help out. Needless to say, I was upset with Julie, the manager. As a long time lane inspector, I was angry that she would not respect my selection of a youth to help out. I respect her right to decide who may inspect her lanes, however this is not growing the sport of bowling. We do not have any youth sanctioned bowlers wanting to help out so when one volunteers I was extremely elated. The fact that the manager had a problem with him is a sad commentary for encouraging youth to get involved in lane certification. I hope the manager will take the time to explain her actions, the next time I am at Norwich.

Web Wadja

Always a good time but rates are too high

Geoff Barrie

Fun worth at money for 4 games

Franky's world Ocasio

Good place for the family.

eric pechie

Clean and well maintained

Joshua Zinewicz

Still my favorite bowling alley but perhaps I'm just being nostalgic. Used to have a great breakfast restaurant inside but time has taken its toll on this place as well as anything and everything else in Norwich so if you have a choice avoid the entire area at all costs if not then you could do worse at least regarding the bowling aspect.

erik mcleod

Diane Karasevicz

Lanes were great and equipment all worked well. Staff was nice. Reasonably priced. The interior and exterior was in the process of getting a face lift. Does not look appealing from the outside but go inside try some bowling .

Sean O'Rourke

Great place to bowl with your friends. Food is good here as well.

Jucenta Walker

I had a blast here

Thara Saint-Surin

Louise Lee

Susan Foster

Had so much fun celebrating my granddaughter's 16th Birthday great food and had fun bowling

Vinay Patel


Andrew Tefft

I would bowl here more, but like somebody else said, the facility is in serious disrepair. Cardboard has been taped to the floors. This is to prevent glue from the ancient floor tiles from damaging your shoes. There's still glue all over mine. This was supposed to be a temporary fix, but I don't see any progress toward a permanent solution. I won't buy anything new (shoes, balls, etc.) because anything I'd buy would just be ruined in this environment. Hardly any of the scoring devices work. They had no one to take food orders at the kitchen counter tonight. Lane conditions vary wildly. The pool room was destroyed in the last storm. There are constant mechanical issues. Everything's dirty. I fear this alley won't be around much longer if a serious investment is not made. Look at your competition. I'll gladly offer a more positive review once some progress is made. The staff is friendly, for the most part.

A cool place to bowl.


Reminds me of Kingpin every time. The smell of lane oil and bad life choices makes me smile on the inside

Erica Bull

I love bowling at this bowling alley because everyone is friendly. Their food is great at their restaurant No problems w me if a lane is struggling while I’m bowling I give four stars because on one downfall is that the prices are high Discounts are great for group home agencies

This is a fun weekend activity for family and friends to do, 1 game/ match last for about an hour of fun, and when you are finished bowl there is an arcade which for about $20 for 2 people you can have another our of fun with leftover tokens and use your tickets to get prizes.

Good customer service! Took my son for his birthday to Bowl and the staff was very nice! Towards the end, it appeared that the staff did not want to be bothered with going into the arcade room.

Nice environment. Staff helped out quickly.
