REVIEWS OF South Bowl IN Delaware

Tawanna Church

The food and drinks were amazing.

Rob Davis

Great place, and reasonable prices. All day happy hour drinks and bowling prices on Thursday. Cash only for bowling, but drinks are either!

Jeremy Tinsley

Ordered the garlic white pizza, the everything pizza, calamari and drinks. Very disappointed! Enjoyed bowling and the yard but ALL the food was SALTY! Asked for Merlot and she poured something else. The waiting time for the food was almost an hour! The yard saved this rating from being a "1"!!!

Erika Morrison

Fun place.. Had a great time. Food and drinks are pretty good especially for a bowling alley. Will definitely be back.

Nate Battle

Nice retro place with pinball machines, old school street fighter, and mortal kombat

Joseph Dougherty

Staff is super great had a wonderful time would recommend to anyone looking to have a good time maybe a nice date or just a good time with friends..

Paul Dubary

Great time! On Sundays, they offer B1G1 free from 8 to 11 PM, so I came out with my girlfriend to BOWL! Not even Kingpin could keep up with us... The lanes are located very close together and soft comfy lounge chairs circumvent the actual bowling hub. If you go in large groups make sure you reserve two lanes next each other because otherwise will be sharing a large couch with other strangers. The bartenders a very friendly and Wala you to bring drinks to the seated bowling area. If you get tired with bowling, there's also a cozy arcade area with plenty of old pinball machines and classic games like donkey Kong. They're also two billiard tables and a few race car driving games. Even though they're only 16 lanes in the entire bowling area, you certainly don't feel cramped with what is offered. Make it out if you even have a few hours to kill, you'll have a blast!

jadzeair clark

Love the food and love how its so much fun there. But it is crowded and it does take so long just to get a lane and to get your food and drinks.

Helen Myers

We all had a good time

Derrick Clark

South Bowl that spot gets busy. On a late night don't bring the kids I'm just forewarning you. Pretty good environment I was not expecting that. You guys tried it out for yourself and let me know what you think.

Bunrin Keo

First time there and it was the worst experience I’ve had at any establishment I’ve been to. We were told the wait was an hr for a bowling lane and after waiting 1hr and 30mins we were told there’s 7 people ahead of us and there we’re a couple lanes that were open and not used. So I wasted 1hr and 30mins sitting around just to find out it’s going to be longer then what I was told the wait time was.

robert davis

Very entertaining service isn't the best but it was crowded so I'm cool with it.

Nick Heller

Good amount of lanes to bowl. Also the food is pretty good. Would recommend.

Julia Centofanti

Went to my husband's work holiday party here. It was fantastic. Would definitely go back.

JJ R.

I was here for the first time to attend a wedding reception. It was absolutely amazing. The staff was awesome and very friendly. The lanes were great. Lots of arcade games. We will be back to bowl again, what a great place.

Zach Hankins

Go there once a week.... eat, bowl, and get wasted with my girlfriend for under 70$.... the food is awesome ( I'm a chef for a living) plus the foh staff is great the serena is always our server shes awesome....

Rolando M

This has been my spot for a while now. Great people, great place, great atmosphere and the food and drinks are delicious and reasonably priced. Great hangout for a date with the wife or a family outing. Overall 5 stars for sure.

A P

Hands down horrible customer service! Great scenery and pricing, however much work and coaching needs to be done when it comes to dealing with customers here at the establishment. As a result I will never return to this place neither will I recommend it. Sorry not my money. Provided below is a picture of the very rude staff who took it upon himself to be very rude to myself and friends! Never again.

Peter Reyes

Rhianna is the best! Great service that I wouldn't have expected at a bowling alley!

Hope Anna

Very uncultured. Music terrible. Management was very rude. Would not recommend this bowling alley for a good vibe and a good time. Go to Lucky Strikes instead.

Dominic D'Alessandro

UPDATE! After emailing South Bowl customer support, they said they would give me a free game, including shoe rentals, for six people as compensation for the horrible way their staff treated my family and I. I was told to contact them anytime to claim my free game, and then they would set everything up for me before I arrive at South Bowl. However, when I contacted them saying that I was going to be attending South Bowl for my free game; they never got back to me. This was about a month ago, and they still have not got back to me. South Bowl is a horribly run business and they need to reassess themselves. TLDR - Mike is a scumbag human. Waitress is a liar, but did the right thing. Manager lacks basic human interaction skills and seemed uncaring. My family and I were bowling for no longer than five minutes, when we noticed the balls were getting stuck. We contacted the front desk, and they sent Mike, who we later find out is a complete scumbag, over to fix the lane. After he pushed the balls through, he came over to us and blames us for clogging up the balls. We then told him that those balls were there already, as there were about ten balls clogging the machine. In disbelief he responded, "I'm not a mind reader" in such a rude manner. He then made a miserable face and walked away. He is scum. Our waitress who was standing there , right next to me, heard a good bit of what he said to my mother and father. My father then asked her if she heard what he said, and she said no. I began laughing hysterically when she said that, as she was clearly telling a lie. Our waitress was a liar, but she was the only one who actually apologized and did the right thing by sending over the manager. The waitress sent over the "manager" if you want to call him that. This man walked over, and looked like some dude they pulled from some random lane to come over and talk to us. He looked miserable as well, and didn't even introduce himself as the manger. Actually he leaned up against the wall, and just stared at my parents while they told him what happened. As far as I know, there was not even an apology from him about what his horrendous employee said to my parents. He seemed to not give a flying hoot about what had just happened. All in all, this was the worst experience I had bowling. My family and I will probably not ever be attending South Bowl again, and will just drive over to Jersey like we were originally going to.

david lindsay

Great place very chill

Bethany Anne

So much fun! Reasonably priced food and good drinks! Couples date night!

Venus Glover

Went for a birthday party. We had a blast this is a great adult place

Rick S.

Southbowl from the folks that brought us Northbowl! This bowling alley can get packed and when it does it watch out, the staff seems to not handle it very well! Luckily, it’s bowling so it can’t get that bad! The alleys are great, they are roomy and clean. The food is good especially being a bowling alley, stick with what they do best, pizza, tater tots and sandwiches! The servers ask to hold credit cards the last two times I’ve been in (while bowling at our lane) and I specifically told them both I’d be paying cash yet when I asked for the check they both rang it up on my card prior to bringing the check to us! I’m not sure why they think it’s ok to run a card on a bill you haven’t seen but ill be refusing to give my card again.

James Young

Good time; bowling outdoor batting cages, food and bar.

Adam Walton

The hours posted on the door and when you call their phone are not accurate. I tried to go here on a Thursday night, I called . There was an automated message which states 2am as the close time. I showed up at 1215 only to find out they were in fact closed. Communication is key....

Den Molina

Great place to spend time with friends. Have a quick bite and drinks at a table or at the bar. Some billiard tables and of course bowling lanes. Staff is friendly and atmosphere is great.

Sharmon Mitchell

My family visited South Bowl for our son's 11th birthday celebration and we had a great time. The waiter was excellent, the food was great!!!

Tracee King

We visit this place quite often. Usually a 5 star place, but how embarrassed was I bringing my whole family on Thanksgiving break to recievce the moist rude service from the girl at the front counter. The front counter needs more help n she needed a better attitude. She made is feel like we shouldn't even be there. I will be back and update my comment as I know they can do better.

Yvonne Wade

The young lady at the desk was not even customer service friendly. Did not explain what to pay and what we would get for the pricing... Just totally unprofessional. Did not care for the rest room set up as well. No privacy!!

Terressa Thompson

Had a birthday party here. Mariah the event coordinator was super helpful! NOTE: Cash only for bowling and shoe rental!!!

Leslie Berkower

I took my grandchildren to South Bowl for an afternoon activity on a hot July day. The bowling alley was clean, had automated scoring, a snack bar and light balls for young children. The prices are very reasonable. My only criticism, the rental shoes were uncomfortable (for me). If you’re looking for an inexpensive activity, South Bowl will fill the bill. PS We had fun with the bowlers in the next lane!

Rondell McGill

We had a party here it was very nice the food was good and the service was great

william wilson

Good food games are not too expensive and ample parking

Amici Jeff

Did the batting cage, super fun!!!

croseille pongparnsana

Good place for food and drinks bowling is awesome as well

Frank Scarpato

Wouldnt let me take my kid bowling after 9:00. And it was 9:04. Its a game. They treat bowling like a club now. Makes noooo sense. I had to go to"lucky strike" were there was 10 kids bowling with my daughter.

Rick Frei

Great bowling alley, $3 games during happy hour, and The Yard has outdoor pool, shuffle board, and batting cages. Shout out to Tom who works out back at the Yard, making sure the place is clean, helping folks at the batting cages, and making sure everyone is having a good time.

Donna Gasiewski

Who knew bowling was this much fun!!! Nice food menu and bar. Diana was super friendly and helpful in setting us up to bowl, and on point with her suggestions for food and cocktails.

Lisa Vollmer

Fun atmosphere, cash only for games. Ball's were the same and sticky. Drinks are good!

Jan Klincewicz

Nice place. Kind of hipster compared to the average Delco lanes where I get cheap senior rates. Drink prices are reasonable, and they have a two game limit when people are waiting. That's actually a really nice policy, but be forewarned if you expected to bowl all day during a prime time. Oily lanes, but well-maintained. Modern scoreboards. Bowlers can tend to be noisy families with screaming kids during daytime weekend hours.

Renee Carolla

Way better than Lucky Strikes. Should have went here first.

Jose Benabe

Can get really crowded, but the service is very good. I definitely enjoyed my night.

Melissia Lenox

Disappointed. We chose South Bowl over North Bowl last Saturday night and regretted it. Staff seened indifferent & disinterested, music spun by dj was outdated and so loud that it was inpossibke to talk to anyone even yourself. We planned l to have a few drinks and snacks in bar area before we bowled but music made our heads hurt down within a few minutes after we sat . The bartender had no idea what a perfect margarita was and there is very few options available for tequila actually all liquor it was slim pickings and the sparse liquor available was of middle quality. I'm not sure of the overall selection of beer but I know they didn't have Corona! One saving grace was the bowling kanes ns seating area was great and we ahared ours with a really cool couple

Eric Clark

Surprisingly nice place (outside looks run down) . Very good beer selection, decent food, beautiful interior.

Linda Mansi

Had our Holiday Party there tonight and it was great! Fabulous service, food was good and staff was super attentive. Everyone had a memorable time!!

Frank Scarpato

Eengeeoo Eengeeoo

Nice spot. Great for get together great beer choices and the pizza is decent. A bit on the pricey side but compared to the other options in this group, I'd rather come here for the ease of parking. Nice candy machines for the kids also. If you found this review useful, please hit the "thumbs up" icon below so that I continue post more helpful reviews. Thanks!

Service is on point, and the facility is extremely clean

Dan Yenser

Hip bowling alley with good food and drinks

Donna Gasiewski

Good bowling alley

B D

I love South Bowl! It's so clean and shiny and everyone is so nice! The food is delicious. The drinks are tasty. Fun random, not too expensive thing to do when the mood...strikes you

Nicole Nixon

My family's new favorite hang out! Nice atmosphere. Friendly staff. Delicious food!

Jason Genelli

The food and drinks blow.....

Joe McGuigan

A very nice experience with indoor and outdoor bars , excellent food as well as excellent bowling lanes, billiards, outdoor batting cages and bocce court.

Ra Stanfor

This was the worst experience with me visiting philly so we came to celebrate my family bday and agreed to do bowl once there we was seated and waited 30 mins now came to greet us once we started complaining someone finally came very rude with a attitude then after taking our order asked for a credit card but asked no one else we asked and they stated nobody asked them for one I'm thinking because we was black period never again worst experience ever

Jacqueline Penrod

Fun family outing. Nice staff.

David Randall

Great place for kids, date night, office get together. Great Food. Nice Staff.

Lisa Vollmer

Fun atmosphere, cash only for games. Ball's were the same and sticky. Drinks are good!

Nicole Testa

Great family fun. Love the new outside bar/play area.

Kelvin Graham II

Nice place with plenty of lanes and some other good activities. I thought it was strange that to bowl it was cash only but you could pay for the bar with your card. All the staff were very friendly.

Danielle Davis-Early

It's a nice place. It's incontinent that they only take cash to bowl, but you can use you're card for food and drinks. Overall, nice for family and friends or even Date Night.

Nette Frye

Good venue. Plenty of space to enjoy yourself. Reasonably priced. Would recommend.

Jay Friday

South Bowl is a pretty vintage yet trendy place. Besides bowling, there's pool and a few arcade games. The food and drink options are easy to navigate through and there's something for everybody. For anyone going with a large group, make sure your ENTIRE group is there or you will not be able to get your lanes. They also have the entire group pay together instead of doing individual people. Overall great staff, and a fun environment.

Erin Pierson

Visited the yard at South Bowl. Good Drinks and food. Batting cages are fun and a place to just have a beverage and relax.

Dave Baxter

Really cool chic bowling alley with great beers on draft and great bartenders! It's not your grandpa's bowling alley!

LeVar Ferrell

My nephew has a graduation party here. The staff was amazing and so accommodating! We couldn't have asked for better service. Everyone had a great time. I would totally recommend others to come here.

Zartan R

Great place for days night or a night out with friends and family, the did and drinks are good too.

estees grissom

I like the South Pole bowling alley very friendly nice atmosphere very reasonable I would return

Steven Mullen

First time there. Very nice surroundings food was pretty good and it wasn't too expensive. Might be wise to get your own bowling shoes.

Jenna Dalbow

The atmosphere is awesome, but the service is terrible. Arrived to find out they only take cash, and was charged a $3 atm fee to get the cash. Overpriced food that we waited for for hours, and rude staff. We went with a large group and in the confusion of trying to split the bill was jipped by $20, we didn’t realize until after we had left that we overpaid. Like I said, the atmosphere is cool but I won’t be coming here again.

Hannah Trimble

Overall, this experience is every bit better than expected: perfect food choices, friendly and attentive servers and very clean. South Bowl is the perfect reason to try bowling or to bowl again.

Rae Wilson

Lane malfunctioned at least 10 times waited more than 20 minutes for a server.... terrible service

Daniel Schauder

The veggie wings and the Bang Bang Cauliflower are

jae meyer

Soooo much fun!!! What a fresh take on a classic pastime. Nice bar with a wide selection of craft beer and mixed drinks. Eat and play! Fantastic menu full of shareable (or not) bites with a twist on wings to tacos &taters. They have a brick oven pizza area (which we have yet to try) and a couple of nice billiard tables as well. Great atmosphere. Love this place!

Archie Ovathasarn

Nice Bowling and pool tables Great food and pizza and Drinks

Typical Noob

It decent. If your in South Philly definitely check it out. Some bowling balls are a bit heavy tough.

Bebe Daily

Great experience all around! The lanes, food and staff are terrific

Keenan W.

Great place and good atmosphere. Enjoyed my time here

Precious Young

Pricey for bowling but totally worth every penny. Awesome food!! Good drinks.

Mr. Ken Eidinger

Decent layout, very family friendly. Leagues or open bowling. Amazing menu that you wouldn't expect from a bowling alley. Decent bar, friendly staff. Clean. They rent out for private functions too.

Queen Faderera

South Bowl it is not just bowling alley. It's a great experience for your family, teens, and depending on the time couples and groups of adults. It has several bowling alleys, pool tables, video games as well as upstairs where there's a lounge and bowling alleys. You can have a private party upstairs. They offer variety of foods even for vegetarians, several full size bars and happy hour. The food and drinks are delicious. Some of the food and drinks are named after the South Philadelphia area.There's a diverse group of people who are friendly and interact with one another. South bowl with a great place to go for entertainment

Jan Klincewicz

Daniel Tasman

Great place to get large groups of people together to hang out with drinks and fun.

Van

Sunday afternoon was slow. It was great for me. I didn't have to wait for a lane. But I was told it isn't always that way. Oh. You must try their chicken cutlet sandwich. Yum. Oh, Free parking available and totally kid friendly

bronx santiago

Expectto have a good time good music good foox anx a friendly atmosphere oh yeah you can bowl also

africandav jones

Poor bar service. When our time was up we were rushed off the lanes. The tv glare on the lanes makes it hard to see arrows. Waitress was more concerned with moving fast than providing service. Ample parking only upside.

Lillie H.

Went to an event here and it was a ton of fun. I just wish they had better a parking lot.

James Cadell

It was my first visit to South Bowl. The whole place is set up well. I don't drink, but they have several bars to hangout with your friends. There is a rooftop patio that is great for relaxing. The outdoor area call "South Bowl Yard" was extremely cool. The Yard has corn hole, shuffle board, horse shoes, batting cages and an outdoor bar. Very cool layout and tons of fun. If you are looking for a great place to bowl, play and drink with your friends, check out South Bowl.

diane williams

Great place for fun and food .the staff is awesome

Gavin DiRusso

South bowl is the BEST! Especially the DiRusso Real Italian Sausage Sandwiches!

Sheila Mathis

Wow what a nice place and the DJ was off the hook. I will go back again.

Frances Wiley

Great food and drinks..

Sierra Sinegal

0 stars this place is sooo rude. We sat down and no waitress came over. The men at the door was really aggressive when I asked him can I have a waitress..all 6 of us just ended up leaving . Do not go here

Joy Turner

Rony Torres

Great chill place to hang out drink. play some pool or bowling.

Toni Thompson

I enjoyed bowling, however the bleach blonde waitress ( sorry, don't know her name) was SO slow. After bowling, we went to the bar. The bartender (female) took my order at 12:15 and then TOOK HER TIME delivering my drink. It took twenty nine minutes to get my drink and another seventeen minutes to get the check. I'd like to mention she serviced the Caucasian customers with expediency and attentiveness. At the end of my transaction she told me it was $17.50 and I gave her a $20 bill. She gave me $2.25 back and I asked for my quarter. She made a face and asked, "Oh, you want your quarter back?" I responded "Yes". She then replied, "Really, you want your quarter? I then said, " The interaction for this drink was long." She was very sarcastic and said, "Oh, okay, let me get you your QUARTER." Then she placed it on the counter and said "HERE'S YOUR QUARTER." Here's the thing: I am always a GREAT tipper although even the service industry workers want more than what God commands (10℅). I used to make tips for a living so I get it!!! However, this bartender not only sucked but was also rude and entitled. Sure, it was ONLY a quarter. But what does it tell you if I won't (not can't) even leave that? Do better.

Cole Ruechel

Extremely loud, very difficult to speak with others while bowling and the music wasn't something worth blowing your eardrums out for either. The service was alright.

Mike McClinton

Love the new digs

Khufu Mentuhotep

Great and fun atmosphere, bowl, have drinks and food. Definitely a awesome place.

Paul Rainer von Habsburg

Great atmosphere. Wait staff is very attentive and friendly. There were many balls in all weights which made it easy to find one I liked quickly. Shoes weren't terrible like at most bowling places. Food was really good too!

Tiffany Berry

I went here for my birthday and had fun. Dope spot to visit

Kevin

Bowling prices are reasonable. Beer not so much. We were placed in a lane without any comfortable/private seating area. Felt crowded. Better than North Bowl and cheaper than Lucky Strike

Paul Schuster

The NICEST bowling ally you can possibly attend. Hours are reasonable. Always very busy due to the premium feel and deals they offer! Bar and food are always amazing

Fiona Haynes

Great environment. Great food.

Natalie Traboscia

Love this place. Great for a night out or a pricate party. Good food and drink selection friendly staff, cool music. Always have a good time there.

Leyona Trent

Great fun!

Jon Kage

Came in not knowing what I wanted. Sat at the bar and was immediately told that it would be a few minutes from the bar tender, Stephanie. She had other patrons and was the only one behind the bar. After a few minutes, she came over and was polite, attentive and even suggested a few drinks. (All which I enjoyed) All in all. An enjoyable experience and good drinks.

Janell Harvey

Had a wonderful time with my family!! Happy Father's Day

David Gerhart

From the owner to the staff to the food and facilities - the full spectrum all around a great spot. Have had events and attended events there that were awesome. Kid friendly until the evening when it's adults only. Like a lot of newer bowling alleys it is not cheap but you get what you pay for. Check out the sister property North Bowl also. Highly recommend.

brian

Had a good time there Stella was awesome. She should be commended on doing a great job she represents you all well.

Emily

We hosted our wedding in the upstairs lounge at South Bowl and it was simply wonderful! The event day staff were so cheerful, helpful and professional. The preparations for the big day were an ease, thanks to the Sales & Events Manager. The South Bowl staff took care of details that I wouldn't have even thought of and made use of the space in a way that was so adaptive and perfect for our event. I can do nothing be sing the praises of the South Bowl facility and staff!

J Muscella

Very nice. Had a private party upstairs.

Jeremy Berkman

Constant lane problems and rude security. Our servers were nice though.

Phil Hwang

Fun place to bowl. It's cash only for bowling. Foods and drinks takes credit.

Daniel Garr

Very clean. Prices are very good.

Amanda Hastings

Cool new outside area

Daniel Verbit

Nice outdoor space with shuffleboard, be sure to look closely at the signs around for some good jokes

Jane Doe

Great place for family fun!

K. Jones

My bestfriend and I were looking for a cute spot for a Friday night and ended up at South Bowl compliments of a Google search. The atmosphere is very chill. We started at the bar with intentions to bowl and met the bar keeps for the night, Shaunna and Stephanie. THEY WERE DOPE! We ended up not even bowling having a good time talking to them and trying out different menu items with their suggestion. Even when the traffic picked up, they were attentive to the new founded crowd and to us, not only giving service with a smile but good energy!! I'll be back so see them and I might even bowl next time! Thanks for an awesome night ladies!

Larry Strange

great looking place

Valerie Wright

A great time had by all what else can I say

Amanda Richardson

Great place! Clean and family friendly with plenty of free parking.

wilmer ruiz

It was a good time, but you can't make reservations. So it took 2 hours to get a lane. We had a lot of people leave, because some of us had a very limited amount of time. Pizza is great though!

Nina Lauria

We just had our daughter 6th birthday party there and it was great! Everything was handled so nice and professionally. The whole staff was so helpful and pleasant.....and had so much patience with all of the kids! The food and the atmosphere was perfect for this age group and the parents liked it too!

Kelvin Herrala

IBEW 98 private party. Friendly staff , lots to do besides bowling . Air hockey , pool ,foosball

Capri Devito

This review is for The yard. Few weeks ago my sons baseball team won the championship and we decided to go there after to celebrate. The manager came over and congratulated all the kids and rewarded then all with batting tokens. I personally take my son here alot and never had a bad experience. Only thing is sometimes the machines are off but they fix them on the spot and give you your token back.

Kenisha Small

I visited south bowl for a birthday party. The event was held upstairs by the bowling lanes. However, during the event my arm grazed a pipe next to the bowling lanes and I heard the skin on my arm sizzle. The pipe burned the skin on my arm. I did not notice the severity that same night, however the following day it began to bubble and was filled with fluid (plasma). I decided to call south bowl to inform them about this pipe and what happened to me. I let them know that it needs to be insulated with caution signs, or whatever precautions they would prefer. Kelly (the manager) and her staff did not seem empathetic or apologetic that this happened to me at this establishment. I was kind enough not to seek legal action and was extremely polite and informative over the phone. In the future if someone has had bodily injury or harm done to them at your place of business, empathy goes a LONG way. Please be aware of this pipe (it’s a silver pipe that runs from the ceiling to the floor). I guarded others that night from injuring themselves. You’re welcome.

D Love

Great place to go on a date, or just hang with the crew. The prices for the food, bowling and shooting pool are all reasonable. Will definitely be back for another night of fun!

Dose Ng

Nice and clean! / friendly staff

11/29/2018 Update I spoke with both Mariah (events coordinator) and Leemore (Co-Owner) and they were both GREAT! Both of them were very receptive with the situation and responded quickly. They took the situation very seriously and showed true concern with how the bartender treated me. It's unfortunate that the bartender showed and continued to show her not so good character with lying in her statement when she was asked about what happened. Leemore openly told me what the bartender wrote about the situation and then we discussed what had actually occurred that night. I feel bad that this had to happen in such a great place that clearly has great owners and employees. There was a true lack of communication, a lot of rudeness and obvious sneakiness that the bartender displayed that night and try to lie about in her statement. Leemore really wanted to make this situation right and asked if she could give our money back or anything else. She also told me to email her the next time I come so she could reserve lanes and give us the first round of drinks. I told Leemore that the only thing I wanted was to help prevent this kind of situation from happening again. She told me that she was going to speak with the bartender about her actions and how to communicate properly with customers. I truly hope the bartender takes this to heart and learns/grows from it. 5 starts to Leemore and Mariah. I hope my negative experience creates a positive ripple effect for SB's customer service. 11/25/2018 Very poor experience!! Very sad since I was really excited to go here! I was there for the first time last night for a class reunion and was flagged after my 2nd beverage for unknown reasons. My friend and I took a break from bowling and went to order 2 cucumber vodkas with soda and a lime. Exact words that came out of my mouth “May I have two cucumber vodkas with club and a lime”. The blonde bar tender (with the ponytail) returned with 2 cranberry clubs and handed me a full alcoholic priced bill. My friend and I waited waited for 20 minutes to ask her for the correct drink unaware that I was “flagged”. And when she finally stopped ignoring us she said that I ordered a cranberry vodka soda and that I was wrong. It was my third drink at the place and I knew exactly what I ordered and how I ordered it. She was completely rude and incapable of communicating the situation at hand. In no way should I have been discriminated against or “flagged”. - I was not extremely intoxicated after 3 beverages - Not once did I slip/fall/stumble - I didn’t speak to the bartender in any negative way unless she took offense to “may I” - I wasn’t slurring my words - I was not causing a scene or being loud with another guests I was simply ordering a drink with a friend. I understand the whole flagging of a person and I 100% agree with that tactic but not when the person is singled out for no reason, and showed no signs of that kind of intoxication. After this experience I would never recommend any one going or having any sort of party there when they have bartenders who treat their guests like that. I was embarrassed to be treated like that at an event that’s supposed to be a joyful occasion. I am also very upset that the bartender lied about the bill and intentionally charged me for beverages I did not receive. Which I think is actually illegal. I was a waitress before for many years and I have never treated a customer in a way that the bartender treated me.

I've been there afew time and i had bad experiences with this fat white dude at the front counter who is very ignorant, disrespectful and rude to a respectful paying customers (never again under this ghetto run management ). I went there at 11 pm on the weekend and was told Southbowl was closed (at 11pm?????) after waiting 20 min in line while there was 2 groups of people who got 2 lanes ahead of me and get to play over an hour

Beware they only accept cash when paying for lanes and shoes. Food orders they accept cards.

Erik Soderberg

Punk rock bowling aesthetic. Fantastic food and drink daily specials. Reasonably priced. Family friendly

Kristopher Kristopher

Very cool venue, decor is retro, and bowling specials make it worth it. One gripe: a $10 order of wings came with 6 small wings. Good, but not for the price. Staff is friendly.

joseph Castine

Fun place! Exciting atmosphere. Food and drink service great. Food is excellent. Try the veggie wings.

Lorraine Simms

It was a nice change of scenery. Everyone was very courteous and had a smile n their face. It s family oriented and I would recommend it for everyone.

My Real Estate team held our client appreciation event here last night and it was a rocking good time. We had the upstairs area from 4-6 with our own lanes, private bar, and food all courtesy of South Bowl. Before last night I haven't been bowling since I was a kid, and didn't know what to expect, but I will definitely go back there with some friends another night soon!
