REVIEWS OF AMF Galaxy West Lanes IN Florida

Tom Rybus

Same as all AMF I go to friendly and helpful employees

Mandi Hood

Had a good time with the family

J.D. Burford

Concessions were overpriced. Make for not so fun environment. Can't drink or eat while bowling.

Albert Alonso

Nice atmosphere, lane floor needs better polishing, shoes stick prior to line. Checkin and out line nerds additional person. Manager finally came to help when there was 15 people waiting. They need a separate ck out counter.

Susan Fain

Fun place to have fun with the family

Neal S

Not bad

Cesar Levid Cruz

Awesome time

elio valera

Really nice, expend good time with family and nice food

Katz Kraydel

For a family, this can be a little pricey, however it's still a good place to go as a treat once in a while. Most people don't bother talking to you, even if their lane is beside yours. You cannot wear your regular shoes, so if you don't have your own bowling shoes, you will have to rent a pair for everyone participating. They have a small arcade that doesn't offer tickets to earn for prizes and a couple claw machines with stuff that's hard to win inside. A large soda is a little over $4 and comes with unlimited refills.

Eric Hadley

Curved to the left too much

Karen Burford

Great family fun.

Jose Rafael

An very nice place for spending time with a family

Natalie Adams

Joined league last month & find staff really nice and always very helpful. Facility is clean & has bathrooms on both ends of bldg. Lanes are well maintained, scoring machines are recent technology, & shoes are new. Large selection of bowling balls & well respected pro on site. Snack bar is decent - pricey but great service.

Linda Leigh jones

Lisa Beitia

The staff and General Manager Josh went above and beyond to make my daughters 8th birthday amazing. Our server Wollie was very nice and helpful. They provided everything we needed for the party. Thank you again for making this the best party spot. Now we have our go to spot and the other parents agree. Keep up the great job! 5 stars is not enough for you guys.

roberta armes

Expensive for a family but lots of fun for all

Angela Evans

This place has gotten worse and worse over the years. It used to be a pretty good place years ago to bowl at a good price, get decent food, maybe play some pool but now things are just ridiculous. The facility itself isn't particularly the cleanest, they charge random shoe prices every time you go whether it is a special or not. My husband bought a beer and they charged my credit card 3 times for 1 beer and refused to do anything about it. If you want to play pool now they want to charge you 18 cents a minute AND keep your credit card on file. After triple charging me for one drink needless to say I didn't want to give them free reign over my credit card. It used to be put 4 quarters in the pool table and there's your game. A lot simpler. Probably why no one was in there playing when there always used to be because no one wants to do that. If you are bowling and your ball gets stuck or you need any assistance with your lane, you'll be waiting forever to no avail. If you order food even on a slow night it takes forever. Over an hour for a pretzel? Come on, don't even want it anymore at that rate. You would think they are premade and just need to be heated. Most of the time anyone in the kitchen and bar just sits there mingling when you stand there waiting to be served. They'll look at you and just carry on with their conversation. I wish we had another bowling alley in Ocala but sadly we're stuck with this place.

Kayla Lyles

I feel like this is a standard bowling alley. Nothing super fancy. You pay you play

Neil Matthews

Nicely remodeled and clean. A bit short staffed but fun place to bowl

Marla Popkin

Pro: Full bar and food. Clean newer shoes, all electronic scoring. Summer specials worthwhile if you live nearby. Con: Pricing way more than I expected but I haven't bowled in 5 years. Inexperienced staff, must have high turnover @ bowling area and bar/ food.

The Clip Shop

Clean facilities, have a bar and area to order food. Was approached multiple times asking if we needed anything, very friendly. Everyone in the group have a great time. Prices were reasonable and was not too crowded for a Saturday night...

Kathy Benevides

Clean, but you only get 1 ball per person. Therefore you are constantly waiting for your ball to come back after you roll it down the la e.

Paul Rankin

Rude staff, 45 min wait for 6 mozzarella sticks, complained and got dismissed.

Alan Cieslak

They advertise that they open at 10 am. Five of us arrived only to find out they weren't going to open until12. A person came outside and told us we would not get a lane until 330 due to a party. Very unfriendly dirty looking with a ciggereet hanging out of his mouth. There were 6 others that had already left. We probably will not go back.

Alice Juarbe

This bowling alley has terrible employees. They will shut down your lane while their friends get to play longer. Misty ignores her customers while she conversates and flirts with men at the counter. Paige makes sure your lane gets turned off because she’s ready to go home at the end of her shift way over 30 mins before the establishment closes for the night. If you plan to go after 11pm do yourself a favor and go to another bowling alley.

Lori Waite

Good place to have family fun

Richard Naspretto

Fun times for all.

Clara Colton

Very good customer service the bathrooms are very clean and the bar was fully stocked . I will recommend it to anyone

James Matis

Every thing very well very attentive staff and friendly clean and equipment works well pleasure to visit facility Will come back often and thinking moving league to here

Holly Bragdon

Great day. Bowling alley is a bit too cold for me.

Allysen Laute

clean lanes, helpful staff, fun place to bring family and friends. There was some birthday parties happening and it was very organized

Peggy Byrd

Bowling alley was lots of fun.

Boug Booger

The place was real clean & friendly staff. The arcade is a money trap for young kids. It's priced way too high, just like the food, drinks & the bowling games themselves.

Norman Turnbull

Way too colg. The place is like a meat locker and the food and drink prices are too high. Other than that, it is a great place to biwl.

Audrey McKoy

Had so much fun here, good service and plenty to do with not only bowling but also a game room

Brandon Tillander

Way to expensive expect to pay douple

Marc Jacobson

Great staff, cleaner than most bowling alleys, BEST PRO SHOP AROUND! I drive 1 1/2 hrs just to have my families bowling equipment worked on.

David Harris

This should not be a one man operation! The person behind the counter should be able to remain behind the counter. When you upgraded , it comes with hi tec complications. Leagues should not be held up due to lack of personal

Charlene Olds

We took our family bowing here a week ago and had the best time! Nick who was working at the counter was so great! Thank you AMF for a great day.

Nicole Trauth

Just had my daughters birthday party there. The kids all had so much fun. The hostess was great and the manager Frank was top notch! Thanks for helping make the birthday party so memorable.

Pam Johns

Had a great time just very pricy fir their eats

Latesia Moyd

This bowling alley is awesome. The manager rocks and we are thinking about joining the league. We definitely will be back!!!

Shelia Tandy

Fun for all ages

Dorthea Wallace

29 Nov 2018, lanes were nice and well maintained. The atmosphere was family friendly. The amount of people bowling was small but was told some nights lanes are sold out. I would definitely go back.

Jose Alonso

Great fun place

Deluzive_Dread Games

Good for leagues really nice bowling alley

Judi Lee

Had a GREAT time

Todd Abare

Pricey food. Expensive evening, but was fun.

Chris Grippin

I have bowled league for a good many years at the amf on Maricamp. The one time I go to this bowling alley, my friends and family have the worst experience at a bowling alley that could be imagined. The employees are rude and inexperienced. To the point that it took 45 minutes to get 2 shots, a bucket of beer and 1 mixed drink from the bar start to finish. The people in charge of starting the lanes took an hour and a half to get the lanes started for the Friday night bowling. Just overall I think that amf should evaluate their staff a little bit. Maybe people could enjoy bowling again.

Donald Gouldsmith

Great facility and staff very helpful to beginners.

Bill Huttemann

I bowl here regularly. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, small pro shop but satisfactory for my needs. I just wish it was a little closer to home (10 miles).

Carlos Conde Santiago

Very entertaining!!

Tom Stanfield

Clean, well run, but 4 stars for expensive food, drinks, & bowling.

Brian Adams

Fun activity. Nice location.

Matthew Eggleston

They wouldn't let my cripple friend bowl and charge $5 for a flat soda.

Jabri White

Great service and food

wendy kakolowski

We love to bowl and love the staff at this alley, lots of fun the problem is they frequently are understaffed

david lennox

The music you play is horrible it is not all about kids.My wife and I are on a league every Tuesday starting in October glad you dont play that music than.But we bought the season pass and were going every Sunday and they play that music say corporate wants them to play that music and nothing they can do.

Stephanie Brissette

Soso service for non leaguers

Rebecca De Herrera

Always a good time

Ken Weyrauch

Its a decent alley. The staff is nice and the snack bar is really tasty. A lot of families bowl here so the big down point is that there is often issue with sticking on the approach due to stepping in something wet if you leave the bowling circle

Kimberly Evans

Had my twins B- day party here. Great job. Friendly helpful staff.

Troy Davis

Clean and nice lanes

Mara Rajput

It's very modern and the staff are great!

Keria M

Had fun while celebrating a friend's birthday. Food was okay although the server seemed to be having a bad day. Also seemed to be understaffed. Overall was a great time , first time back in years.

lisa Nickerson

Frank Docimo, GM, & all staff waiting on us were outstanding! My daughter's 9th Birthday was a hit! I recommend this venue for a party. Thank you AMF staff for such a memorable experience. Lisa, Jenna, & gang

John Keith

Best bowlers pro shop in the area, great work at affordable prices.

Erin Hollifield

Bowling was fun with the group! We are certain to be back! Best one string on a school night!


Nice lanes,but $4.28 for a 28 oz fountain pepsi,Not Cool!!

Lindsay Kosyak

Way too expensive for everything. Spent 20$ on two drinks from the bar. Bought my 14 year old a large pop which cost 5$. For the amount of money I spent, it was 10 minutes until.close, when we asked to play one last game, they should of honored their guests that were inside. ESPECIALLY FOR THE AMOUNT OF MONEY WE SPENT! Will never return to this bowling alley again.

Andrew Arami

It definately bothered us, with half the alley wide open, they put 2 families directly on both sides of us after we started played 2 games and left. Pool is by the minute. And the food it outrageously expensive. Not the same lanes I grew up on.

Carillion Thiessen

This is your typical bowling alley. Clean, family friendly, lots of tables. Bring there only for my kids, I could do without the bar in one room, but we liked the slightly over-priced concessions area, and there is a small arcade as well.

Jessica Burman

Thusvllace was awesome. Went on a sunday night and they had great music and it was an awesome atmosphere all around.

Katarina Kapisoda

Great place for family and friends to hang out and bowl. Food is delicious and the place is clean.

Joseph O'Connor

Went with a group of friends, had a fun time. Nothing too special, it's a pretty standard bowling alley. Clean, well kept, and not a bad experience overall. Prices were good, and we would definitely go again.

Craig Bosch

Had a group event here for my daughter’s end of the year school party. Nick and Debbie were amazing to work with. Made it unbelievably simple and fun. Everything went off without a hitch and we will absolutely consider having more group events and just simple family outings again in the future. Can’t recommend these guys enough.

Brandon Sheffield

Great experience, great prices. The whole family had fun. Only a little complaint that the food bar/ bar was completely understaffed. Just one employee on a Sunday evening. It took 1hr and a half to receive all our food items. Instead of all the items being prepared at the same time they were prepared over the period of time. This location should hire more more help. The kitchen/ cook was awesome and completely overworked. He maintained composer although being slammed with food orders and loud, complaining impatient customers. He should be given a raise.

Ashley Brace

A little old looking, but well maintained. Didn't try out the food myself, but a friend who I went with said the pizza's a little too greasy. Bowling overall is a nice experience. The rental shoes aren't horribly wrecked like other places I've been and the staff was very nice.

Deanna Lee

It's ok

Joe caban

Great pro shop and great laines.

Staci Lingerfelt

Fun place just needs some better balls

Lorah Smith

Love going here, friendly staff and excellent customer service, always a good time for family and friends.

Ryan Thomas

I'm not a people person but it was a great experience. Love the fact that they I.D everybody. So I had a great time both bowling and playing pool!!! Food department can be worked on some more!!! It took forever to get the food, then it didn't taste right. Definitely a place to go have fun and not eat!!!! Lol!!!!

Aaron Pruitt

Fun times

Linda Schaefers

Wonderful experience.. Had a large group manager and assistant manager both came by at different times to make sure everything was going well..all of the staff was remarkable.

Jessica Yoder

Way too expensive,will never go there again

lathell grimes

Great place too bring family or friends

Paul Violette

Friday night all you can bowl is a good price and a fun night. Had an issue with at first but management took care of it and made it right. Overall had a good time with family and friends.

Der Reisfuher

Service was good. Food was just OK. Drinks were good. Was a bit disorganized.

Gustavo Osornio

Food was alright, the arcade was a bit pricey, but bowling and pool are a great time

Kai Clark

I had a blast and the employees are all super nice

Anthony Evans

Gone downhill more and more over the years. They don't do the bowling pricing how they used to. You used to be able to go anyday and get a shoe rental and 2 hours bowling for about $13 per person and now it's a charge per game and shoes. If you want food there forget it, by the time you get it you'll probably be done bowling. My wife ordered a pretzel once and there wasn't many people there and waited for 40 minutes and went to the stand to ask about it and it's like they forgot and then it took another 20. Each of the pool tables there has its own issues. Whether one doesn't deposit the balls or only some balls. They have darts but if you ask for the darts they're all broken so they wouldn't stick even if you wanted to play. They don't have enough variety in sizes of the ball as for quantity. It seems difficult to find any ball except a 10 or 11lb one most of the time. The staff is usually apathetic or rude. Especially if you need assistance with something. Not very helpful or cheery at all.


great place, people & lanes. bar & pool tables. good food. especially anything chicken or pizza

Vicky Fanning

Good fun for the whole family.

Oneida T.

Nice chill place to hang with family and friends. Not too expensive, food might be depending on your budget. Bathrooms could be a bit cleaner. Other than that I love coming here.

Godfrey Pupo

Very young crowd but overall ok.

Anthony Matthews

Bowled a tournament there. Place was clean. Waitress staff very nice. Food was great..Thank you..

Chris Jepson

Fun for the whole family but pricey

Brian Purdy

Some employees just don't care. There are unsupported managers who try but need staff to back them.

React Compilations

I go to the East lanes a lot and when I went to the West lanes tonight, I was sadly disappointed with the service. The lane got stuck and my friends and I waited 20 minutes and I had to go back up to the counter and it was finally fixed. The man at the counter Stanley L. was just on his phone while me and my friends waited 20 minutes. We requested a lane change, after it got stuck again, and were denied. We finally got a new lane after our previous got stuck for a 3rd time. When we finally got our new one we requested our custom bowling balls back and Stanley was rude about it telling us that “I already told the mechanic and you’ll get them.” And the last thing was we got our lanes shut off at 10:30 during the Monday Mayhem special. It’s supposed to be from 8-11 but they stopped us at 10:30. The website clearly says Monday Mayhem goes from 8-closing which is 11.

Pipe diaz

I had a great time but some people there can be kinda impatient

Matthew M.

Came in with a large group and were well taken care of. We had 8 kids, 12 and under, and they didn’t even hesitate to help us have a great experience! Larry Lewis was the GM in charge and he was awesome! Definitely recommend this place for a fun afternoon or evening.

Jennifer Hunter

Awesome place to bowl


Clean, very friendly staff with great customer service!

Fred Knorr

This bowling center is very well maintained and managed by a super nice gentleman who has a crew of wonderful employees. I have never had a visit where they have not gone beyond the call of duty in making my experience pleasant and enjoyable. It is the perfect place to take the family or friends.

Sterling Spikes

Good facilities and a cozy traditional feel

Tiffany May

This place actually has super good food especially their fried pickles (yyyyuuuummmmyyy). The employee's are on point, they make your bowling experience fun & memorable, love this place!!

Greg Steen

Love this place, watch for specials and the cost is reasonable, also a summer pass is being sold right now for around $50 for 3 months, can't beat that price anywhere... I plan on going 1x a week with my daughter

Daniel Kilkenny

Excellent service and great new lanes. Frank and Nick took great care of us.

R Hyatt

Great place to bowl

Tito Gonzalez

Great family place to hangout. Never had any problems with other families and my kids always have a great time. I recommended it to anyone that has kids.

Katherine Raney

The place and staff are amazing!

Lisa Young

Nice enough bowling alley. There is no polish on the floor up to the fowl line so you can't slide at all. I also wish their program for scoring was a different one. I prefer the one that shows you which pins are down and which are left. It's just a personal preference for me as I am nearsighted. A little music would be nice. Overall it's a good place to bowl. I will return.

Tim Sullivan

This is a great place to blow off steam and have a great time with friends or family. The food is not the best. But a bowling alley is not known for their food. The staff are very nice and fun. There is a league store on site that sells equipment as well.

Tina Williams

No snack machine, no chips behind the snack bar, but... you can buy a small fry for $5.59. I have NEVER bowled 3 games and left with filthy dirty hands, to say the least about my balls. We had had 8 beers, and spent $47.00, including a $7.00 tip. *yeah, the bar tender was great!

Joshua Cox

I liked the bowling it was nice the workers were very good even though i got no strikes i would recommend this bowling alley to go to if you can bowl

hemal upadhyay

30 min wait for brunt fries and 15 min wait for ketchup new staff is not good

Taylor 0622

My family and I went to a birthday party here and had a blast! The whole team here is great!

Nick Davis

Me and some buddies come here on the weekend to play some pool, drink a few and over all to get out the house. In every occasion the bar tender was great and we had a good time fooling around and shooting some pool.

Warren G

Had a good time. Facility is nice. Manager is slow. Prices way too high

Aaron Issa Me

Bowling and food was fine. Only problem was that it was pretty cold in there.

Chris Sadlier

No smiles and little friendliness made an uncomfortable atmosphere.

Paulie Benjamin

I had a physical handicap wouldn’t let me bowl I’ve been bowling at very different places highly don’t recommend this place very rude and very discriminating against people

Terie Sheehan

Luv to see my grandson having so much fun with his buddies

Paul Joseph V.

Nice cool place.

Jeremy Myers

Great, clean, fun place to visit. Nice food options, reasonable pitcher prices...we will be going back frequently.

Kenneth Rice

Everyone was nice and accommodated our large group.

Kelley Port

Very nice place

Tommie Lee Hurst

Awesome environment. Have beer too!

Laurie Ogus

It wasn't worth the cost of admission. Bowling was great made some memories we got a couple of dranks and a thing of nachos it was super expensive as i said earlier not worth it, 1 star!

Jennifer Pierce

Nick was an awesome help. Great family fun, good food, clean atmosphere. I always go to this location. We’ve held bday parties here and went to a company party. All occasions

Jaclyn Freitas

Management & staff are super nice. Love the new equipment. Great place to go spend some non-screen time with friends and family and have a lot of fun! A few appetizers, some drinks and bowling make a wonderful family night!

Dessa Padilla

High price. Bowling shoes had holes in them. For the rental price they definitely should be able to replace! Also, can't purchase pitchers of soda to share with party?

Bobby Starkey

Clean not a bad place to go. But a little to much to play prices a little high. Food good price beer is way to much 4 bucks a beer I dont think so.

Joshua Du Pré

Staff was polite. Prices are high. Aged property seems to be well kept.

Elizabeth Roman

Family friendly for sure!!❤

John Martin

A great place for a birthday party! The kids all had a blast! The manager, Frank, and his staff made my son's sixth birthday a huge success. The staff had everything set up and ready to go. Completely stress-free and a great time by all.

the three Stooges and the hairy cousin

Awesome because you get the bowl there's food and everyone's going to have fun times

Rosanne Vargas

Great time bowling. Staff friendly and helpful. Will go again.

Mohammed Murad

Nice simple and fun

William Muller

Ok foe bowling ally. Expensive, staff could be friendler

Marquita Stephens

Good lanes with above average equipment.

Kimberly Serig

If I could give less than a 1 star I would. This place has gone down hill. Walked in Saturday afternoon to shoot some one acknowledged us. We sat at the bar for almost 10min before someone came by in passing to ask if we had been helped. We decided to order a round of drinks. (2 drinks to be exact) they were crown and cokes. They had no pint glasses...only wine glasses. The lady who took our order stated she never has made drinks before and had absolutely no idea what she was doing. We had to have her add ICE to the cups!! They were so weak all we could taste was soda. $12 later...we left the drinks and just decided to leave. Should have gotten our money back. The staff there is absolutely rude and they have no customer service. If your looking to shoot pool and have actually good drinks go to downtown billards in the ocala square. We got 2 drinks more for the same price AMF charges. Especially during happy hour from 1pm-7pm and you can get pool half priced. Definitely worth it.

Stephanie Suffoletto

Very nice place to bowl and they offer deals for the whole family.

Robert Lyman

Very poor Customer service. The girl at the counter many times also must work the snack bar and often u must go find someone to help you.sorry but very poor management.i was in the trucking business for 57 years and if your not taking care of your customers they will go somewhere else!!!

Harriette Yarrell

Enjoy my time there

Jessica Ivancso

Awesome bowling. Very clean and well kept lanes. Rental shoes were in good shape and the electronic scoring was colorful and fun. We didn't eat there but it looked like the kitchen was well stocked with standard bowling alley foods.

Nova Breeden

Worst experience I have ever had. Went bowling with my husband for the first time here after friends of ours went. Was charged over $110 for just bowling not including the two pitchers of beer we got for $30. We tried to speak to management about being overcharged and we also contacted corporate who could do nothing for us. I have recorded all conversations that I had with corporate and each bowling center that I spoke too. Both Ocala bowling centers said that they’re pricing was the same and that we were overcharged. But still corporate did nothing to give us any kind of refund. The management was so rude (Jen) to us and told us that they were going to contact the cops if we did not leave the building. I’m now in contact with my lawyer and filing a lawsuit against Corp! Amp sucks wouldn’t reccommensd to anyone.

Mildred Pedato

It was ok. The service here no so much.

tyler raab

The worker were very polite deffinetly will be going back

Alyssa Small

Great place for date night. Hubby and I both love it here!
