REVIEWS OF AMF Lakeland Lanes IN Florida

Terry Cascoe

nice setup and organization. restaurant type feel from the food service. great music and pool table

Melissa Jaekel

Great venue! We were there for Granddaughter's birthday party. Everyone had a great time!

No Name

It was ok

Mike Hoyle

Definitely no frills. If you have a child who needs bumpers... everyone has to use them because they are manually set by the staff at the beginning.(seriously) Paid $60 for 1 game for 4 adults and a child. The staff was friendly though.

Chris Fernandez

Pretty good bowling experience. Not super clean, but wasn't horrible. Was a little pricey though.

Sergio Rosario

This alkey is amazing, the lanes are freshly liked everyday yes I said EVERYDAY. Manager Carvell is friendly and very knowledgeable. This is a must go for all of those league bowlers. Full bar and kitchen. Overall awesome place.

James Cheff

Alot of breakdowns scorer didnt work great

Carol Jones

Family Oriented. Good Experience.

Allison Crabb

Visited today with my husband and played a couple of games. The staff were super friendly and very helpful when one of arcade machines ate my tokens. Multiple arcade machines were broken, but not labeled out of order. They said they didn't own them, but seeing a review from weeks ago with similar complaint me think they need to get the vendor in asap. Concession seems overpriced and on par with movie theater prices, which I wasnt expecting. Will definitely be back in the future.

Tracy Robinson

My husband bowls here all the time. They have nightly bowl specials. Kids are definitely welcome

We attended AMF for a friend's birthday party. My son had a good time. He spent most of his time in the small arcade area. I know it is a bowling place, not an arcade, but the games are somewhat limited. There are mostly claw machines. Overall, the place appeared clean, and the food was okay. Our hosts had a full spread of pizza, chicken tenders, mozzerella sticks, fries, dipping sauces, and a big cookie.

Josiah Clark

Friendly staff. Prices are a little high for what to get but it's good.

Google Ayo Ciera

Just came for beer and pool. Ended up staying to watch the bowling tournament. Pretty cool

David Dow

Well maintained,but price was high for open

Joseph Dillard

We had a great time, good wings too!

Ellen Peterson

Tony Livingston


Jeanette Garrison

Had a great time.

Linda Horn Zito

Nice lanes personnel not friendly or helpful. Does not honor bowling leagues from others in area.

Kyle Kemp

Family a round of Galaga in the arcade.

Jayden Rodriguez

Bowling here is super fun with a small group or a whole crowd! I've been on Tuesdays & Saturdays and both are a great time. AMF offers accessible bowling options (ramps for rolling the ball, as well as gutter guards), so my family was able to bowl with our grandmother. Unfortunately, gutter bumpers can't be set per player, so we had to all use them. But that's just part of the strategy for some people. ;) The food is tasty; however, it is fairly greasy and can get expensive if you don't keep track of your spending. Overall, the whole place is fun to be at, but try to go on a night where you can get a good deal. (Tuesdays are really good for this!)

Giovanni Rose

Good times

Appolonia Barnett

The weekend manager is absolutely awesome

Daniel Smith

Good place to bowl, staff is friendly and they have a decent arcade. A lot of the machines are old and half were broken down. The building is old and it shows on the inside. The bathrooms are not the nicest nor the cleanest but still useable. Actually bowling it self was good, also have a pro shop which is nice. The food is a bit expensive for large boneless wings and a pop it is 17 bucks. The wings are good. I would recommend coming here. Open bowling is 3 dollars per game person. The shoe rental is 4 dollars per person.

alisha m

Websote says one thing...bit got the bowling alley amd it was a different time...that is huge wjen going with kids

derick vilsaint

Karen Walkrr

Very fun

Lance Lancer

Good clean fun

samantha alexander

Great place to take the family. They run really good deals.

Jose Tiburcio

Fun enjoy

Akerah Carter

I actually came here a month ago. The bowling was a great. Why I have only given it 3 stars was because I came during the day for the first time and it started to pour. After finally running through the rain I get stopped at the door with a man who held up a clipboard at me and shooed me to the door. He then said rather rudely that i couldn't come in as they were in a tournament until 7 and that I needed to leave the premises. I understood and went back out into the rain. My only problem was how his demeanor was towards me. Other than that when I came back later I had a great time.


Came here at 8:12 waited 30 minutes, still no lanes open. I am furious. #not2019material.


This is my home alley This is my home alley. The staff is friendly and attentive to all of my needs.

Helen Scorpio

6 of us bowled and had a great time! They run daily specials so make sure to take a look. They do run a league every day so make sure you get those times before making your own plans. Staff is friendly and helpful, didnt use the bathrooms this time, but no one in my party complained upon their return from same. Take the friends or family (or both) and have a blast!

Courtney Marie

Bowling is always fun but the AMF is so much better then the bowling alley on the Northside. And they make pretty good drinks too.

Andy G

Coustmer service is great, food is decently good. Great place

Charlene Russ

Dirty place, drunkenness is out of control. Please don’t take kids there.

Jesse Pena

Great staff, great deals and specials, decent food and arcade. Overall a very fun place to hang and spend time.

Leah Aponte

Clean establishment, fun night time bowling. Drinks are off the chain strong ;) Kids have a blast every time we come. Great summer program for families

Greg Wilson

Went with a couple of buddies. Nice place couldn't ask for more really. Price is a little steep but it's worth it in the end.

Mike Zelazo

Nice people but facility needs remodeling.

sf freelance

It's fun. Could use some updates.

Ronald Hinkley

Manager makes special accommodations for customers. Families are welcome here and Wed night bowling is the best. League's get priority but they make it great for all after they are finished

Jay Stew

Great place to have a birthday party! Friendly and Helpful staff.

Elizabeth Harrison

Way too expensive.

Hannah W

Good bowling. Arcade is rigged, though. Claw machines are either too soft with no grip, or too forcefully pulled up, tossing your prize once it gets to the top. A waste of five whole bucks. If they truly cared about their patrons, they would resolve this fundamental flaw.

Melissa Sumner Hale

Smells old, seems expensive. The staff was nice but definitely trying to sell memberships. We said no but they kept trying. The last 3 times we've bowled we used a groupon for a place in Winter Haven. Much better priced and the family deal comes with a pizza and drinks. We will probably go back to Winter Haven next time.

Patrick Zettler-Carbonaro

Fantastic center. Staff was very friendly. This is what a good old fashioned bowling center should be.

ron gee

Nice house, lanes properly oiled and taken care of

Stanley Morgan

Great place to bowl

Richard Teese

3 games, shoe rental, food (hotdogs, chicken tenders, and onion rings. Nothing crazy like their $21 appetizer), and soda for two people came out to over $70!? What a joke. Half way through all the speakers and the music went out so they had to turn the normal lights back on. The music was barely audible and it really ruined the whole vibe and reason to go bowling on a Friday night. If I wanted the normal bowling experience, I wouldnt have came on a Friday night and paid extra. The only plus side was our waitress. She was very nice and friendly. She was on top of everything despite having to run the front of house from her computer because the other guys were useless. Ill be going to the Northside to Orange bowl from now on. I guarantee they would of gave us the normal rates without asking if their equipment went out.

Anita Ives

Super clean and family orientated...

Whitney Daigle

Overpriced and never enough ramps for my four year old to play. Furthermore, they treat customers who need accommodations like they are somehow an inconvenience.

Sherry Reeder

Great place to bowl at reasonable prices. Good food and drinks too!

Pamela Reece

Great food and atmosphere.

mark erwin

One star was too many. DO NOT waste your time or money at this place. They have the most oldest scoring system I have ever seen (commodore 64 look advanced compared to this), and, of course, it did not work. They took my money, and when I told them I wanted to leave because their system would not allow for the game to have bumpers for my small daughter and then not have them for my game, they said they could not do that, and then did not give me my money back. Every other bowling place in America has better amenities than this place....a joke.

Ken Sullivan

Was a little dark. Easy to find a ball. Clean shoes and lanes

Greg & Julia Rogerson

Great for the family and friends...

vanessa winn

Ok place.

Ariel Mollett

Freaking amazing I'll come back

Varrick Nunez

Went for a family outing, lots of fun. Staff always friendly & welcoming. Updated look inside, very mid-century modern look to it. It's been around that long, it couldn't be more authentic.

Jason Cleveland

It's a bowling alley complete with balls and pins. The lounge is great. Stiff drinks

Andrew Baker

Good family place.

Timothy Dannemiller

Great time had birthday party for my granddaughter

Toshia Hall

Good times! Friendly staff. Competitive prices!

John Luman

Staff was very friendly; the lanes were playable.

Joe Rivera

Member of two bowling leagues. I don't eat there however their drinks are definitely overpriced. Can do better elsewhere.

Deanne Krome

Good place to take family

Sue Bet

Good place to go and excellent promotions!

Randy Santiago

Always good family fun

Ron Krusyna

It is a bowling alley with 3 bars the food quality is OK but the prices could come down lower

Justin Ledford

Great bowling alley friendly staff would recommend

Jason Kincaid

Had a good time with my family.

Boo Boo

Great place for family fun clean good food decently priced

Danielle Purvis

Dont go on Friday night with your family. This is league night and there's a wait list for fun. For a family of five on Friday night, it wouldve cost a guesstimate of over $100 for shoe rental and lane rental, you pay per game (per hour is not available Friday night). Bowling was a great past time for families - nowadays, not so much.

Grady- 1983

The place was fine, the staff was fine, but I thought the prices were a little steep. It's $6 to rent shoes per person (why you have to pay to rent bowling shoes instead of them being included is beyond me) and it's $6 a game per person, and a cheesburger meal with fries and a drink was $12. For my son, my wife and me, it was $50. Maybe take the prices down a little.

Marie Sutton

Temperature was too cold, couldn't enjoy bowling...

Lauren Keen Aumond

My fiance's family held a birthday party here over the weekend. They paid for an unlimited package of chicken and pizza. Our server (Jenn) was really good. The tables and chairs were high quality. The bowling lanes could use updating, but were functional. What's keeping me from giving 5 stars is that the reservation was for 1:00, we arrived at 12:45 and the food wasn't ready until 1:45. That was a late lunch!

Althea Chapper

Good family fun time at the AMF

Jason Shaw

Not a bad alley. Wish it had lanes on each side and much better seating between lanes. Food and Bar isnt great. Prices are a killer. One game between me and my 6 yr old son with shoes cost 21$ around 5 pm on friday.

Heather Cook

Needs different music for a friday night.

Laura Wood

Good food

stacey jones

Fun! Just over priced

Ken Williams

Fun place.

Samuel Cortes

It was great kids had fun

Durand Kent

Great food and great customer service


I orderd a ball and they told me it would be here in a week but it's been 8 weeks don't buy your ball here

Jen B

Great time, good prices, and good drinks. Fun for family or date night!

Aidan Madrigal

The worker Clay was being very rude and unfair in this fine establishment. Don’t get me wrong, i had a lot of fun, but Clay was not the move.

Ezra suarez

I love it. The first time I went was last weekend Saturday wow they were short staffed and still catered to everyone that was there. Anytime I had a question they quickly answered and helped. I had such a fun time with my girlfriend. I love it I beat her twice.


Dope atmosphere. Will definitely go back!

April Rayne

Friday lights out was Awesomeness

Valorie Garcia

Always have a good time. Customer service is great.

Darlene Alvord

Cold. Fans running on high speed.

enid rivas

Nice place and people

Laura Williams

Tuesday night special is worth it! Friendly staff and fun environment

Mike Miller

Really cool to hang out at

Heather Machado-Chancey

Affordable bowling and cold beer

Allan Newman

Wasn't informed of the prices correctly,for 3 people for 3 games was 60 dollars.

Joseph Gagliardo

The place is really good the machines work great but the bowling balls that they have how old very light or very heavy and none of them have big thumbs a hole

Jamie Ross

It had been 6 years before going bowling yesterday (too long) had lot of fun. We didn't have any problems with the lanes or computer everything worked great. The guy at the front desk was friendly. Will definitely try and go more often!

Dawn Mooney

Rick and bowl is awesome

Jill Ladd

Was there for a bowling tournament. Clean, employees nice.

Christopher John Sr.

Clean fun place. Lanes are great, new machines. Loved my waitress, she was awesome.

Jojo Nothing

I would not recommend this place AT ALL! They ripped us off and were completeley unprofessional. They charged us for 7 shoes when we only had 4 people rent shoes. It was $108 for 7 people to play two games.... when we asked for a simple break down of the prices Glenn (the alleged owner) said he had no idea what we were talking about and that he couldn’t give us a price break down or receipt until after we pay the $108 dollars. He acted as if he had no idea what a receipt was and told us to “get our calculator out” and do it ourselves. The entire thing was shady and he wouldn’t give us any price break down at all. I don’t think it takes a rocket genius to understand what a simple written receipt of the price break down is or to understand that it should not cost 108 dont 7 people to play 2 games and for 4 shoe rentals. It doesn’t matter about the price if it was HONESTLY $108 dollars but the fact that it wasn’t honest and that we were ripped off is what makes me so mad. I have never in my life left a bad review anywhere but morals are a big thing for me and this place doesn’t have a good moral code. It’s a shame.

L. Lawson

Friendly staff. We took our 3 year old for the first time and she had a blast!

Robb Upthegrove

Fun Place

Dorothy Stone

This is the place to have a Birthday Party. They employees were great, the food was fresh and cooked to order. I will highly recommend having a kids party there. Well worth the money.

Howard Dix

Nice lanes

Liz Antaya

Probably would have been fun but they were full and we were told it would be an hour before a lane opened up. So we left and went to the Escape Room instead. We had a blast there.

Jean Norris

It was ok, but not great. Bathroom was pretty gross, but everything else was clean. Took my 7yo bowling on a weekday afternoon. All parties with children were crammed into one side of the building (dozens of people), while the 3 adult parties occupied the other half. Bumpers were not automatic, so everyone in the group had to use them. We travel a lot and love to bowl. This was definitely one of the poorest we've visited.

Eric Nesbitt

Thursday fun day.... enjoy yourself on Thursday unlimited bowling for one price

Jim Dammann

Great music. Fun times. Good for families on A sunday

Denise Brown

Going there every other weekend

Jason Thompson

Fun times for the family


Awesome bowling any night of the week

McKinley Workman

You can have great fun

Jaimee Hemby

So much fun. Clean. Good staff. Shoes were nice and new... But the balls are not as nice as winter hvn bowling alley my group all decided. If they had bigger finger holes or were nicer balls and flooring i wld say this place was perfect

Rebecca Johnston

Nice place to bowl with family or a girl's night out.


Staff are friendly and helpful the place is clean service was good but... *Be Warned* unless your on a league or going during late night party times they charge Over 5$ Per game not including shoes.... I've been two times both during the early evening one on a weekday and one on a weekend and both times 8 games NO shoe rental $ 45. I say again... BE WARNED GO LATE..

Karen Howard

It was just super fun, especially with the family

Bill Banashak

Staff was amazing with all the bowlerd there for the Federation playoffs

Christian Davis

It looked cool


Very fun place to go to for group fun. Nice service food and a fun time. Just make sure to not go during an event or else it's loud and over crowde and worst of all. . . Everyone has taken the chairs D:

Nn Mm

It is fun for kids and I love the lights and music. However, the management needs to either get more help, get more organized or both because the process of getting a lane and paying is slightly ridiculous (they had ONE poor guy checking in dozens of people). Decent price and place was clean.

Sara Crane

Zack H is by far the best waiter I have ever seen! We went on a Monday for the ally’s specials on bowling and it was packed! Not only was zack a fantastic waiter I didn’t see a smile leave his face! Thank you so much for such a fun night and we WILL be back! I’d give them 6 stars if I could!!

brandi m

Worst customer service I’ve ever expirenced in my life! Pure trash

Carol A Wingate

Music is horribly loud during sanctioned leagues and customer service is rude. They shrug their shoulders and say they cant turn our section down.

Daniel Trinka Jr

Nice staff, newer lanes and tvs. Good price

Alexia Cruz

Retro and chic! Good food and service. A great place for birthdays

Ryan Devine

Love the extreme bowling! Very fun for the entire family. Concession was slow and not teamwork oriented but food was decent when I finally got it. Overall: I will be coming back again very soon.

Linda Spanola

This was my first time playing at this establishment. It was clean and lots of lanes to play on and no waiting! Will definitely be going back!

laremy dickey

Clean place and really nice employees. Can get expensive for a family of 4 when you play several games but you can always go on the days they have specials.

Terri Blake

Nice center. Friendly staff. Good service.

jane john

Attended a birthday party here for my grandson on 9/2/17 and Bryanna the staff person responsible for the party was FANTASTIC... she and the staff provided a wonderful event and I highly recommend this as the place to have a birthday party Thank you...


Clean and friendly. Arcade could have been better. Over all great experience.

Dawn K

Fun place to go with kids

Evelyn Cruz

Did children's party and left 5 expensive large helium balloons. I called no later than 10 min to let them no I will back to get them. The person assured me that we're safe in snack place and when I got there it was no where to be found. I believe it had to be stolen from a staff member. Since I was told they didn't see any one walked out with them.

john campbell

We had fun. The staff was very courteous. The place was clean. We bowled and then we played billiards.

fattboyslim a p
