REVIEWS OF AMF Venice Lanes IN Florida

unicorn ava

Very rude lady manager for the 2nd time.Should always have extra lanes for the public on league days. Will not be back.

Mat Mannino

Really cool staff. The big guy that works the front is very helpful.

Tropical Garden

We were pleasantly surprised by good quality food! The chicken was delicious! All lines are in good working order! I would be giving the 5 stars If only they would change that stinky carpet! It would be a much nicer and cleaner place!

Jessica Dunbar

The service here is outstanding. Food is great. I was really happy how accommodating and polite the service was. We'll be back for sure!


Kids have lots of fun!!!

Augie Arocena

Staff is very friendly and accommodating. I Would definitely recommend.

Igor Solovyanchik

Good but they need to remodel the place

Hail Styles

A little out dated, the gameroom is a little messy and the desk service was a little less than friendly.

Rachel B

This was a fun place but they need more employees and they were out of several things at the snack bar.

Dan Radclin

They have great summer value pricing

Stephanie Gonzalez

Employees were nice. Bathrooms were clean. We didn't try the food. But overall we enjoyed our time here. It was on a sunday afternoon and they weren't very busy.

Mark Mumper

Had a great time and the staff was awesome!

Carlos Enrique Gonzalez Rey

Disgusting service. Closed our game early so we'd leave. Not only this but the workers were incredibly rude and were not kind. We felt disgust in this bowling alley with the service, and we do not recommend going here. You may as well go to the Sarasota AMF. This was a disgusting service.

Veronica Spirk

Overpriced!!! Waited 1/2 for nachos while 4 employees stood in the center area. Beer took 20 minutes and we were the only ones in the bowling alley. Food was cold and awful. Do not waste your time. One of the worst customer services I have ever encountered.


It was a fun, clean atmosphere for bowling. Not smokey, thankfully and a couple of pool tables if you wish to play.

Eric Brown

Awesome place!

Joshua Regan

To be completely honest I feel this bowling alley needs a lot of maintenance. Lots of lane issues, problems with the AC on half the building and also rainy days show all their problems with their roof. Leaks everywhere! However, the staff is amazing and always give great service!

Daniel Masura


David Jones

Busy night and service was slow but friendly

BigRef Lee

Sonny Gem Cox

David Harrington

Clean. Nice. Pro shop only open at night


Older bowling place with old equipment. There are broken and missing ceiling tiles place looks a bit neglected tbh.

Roger Greig

Bathrooms are filthy, machines iffy, place needs a redo.

Joel Greifzu

Clean family fun. Games are kinda pricey .

Cat Mom

The snack bar attendant was very nice and helpful. Prices were high but the service was worth it. Nametag said Anthony.

John Wood

2 adults and 1 child $75 for 3 games on a mid day Sunday! Was very surprised at the cost and was not told not asked how much before playing. Never again. Not a nice place.

Toni F

They have rehabbed it a little.. it was a fun time

Patty Norman

The very annoying thing about open bowling at these lanes is the so-called music blaring out when you are bowling. I, along with many others. have expressed the dislike. Only to be told it is required.

Emma Foltz

Very fun Great for groups

Darren Thompson

Quaint place and friendly staff

William Ginand

Power outage on last Tuesday shut down all the alleys for an hour. They need to bulldoze the whole bldg!

Michelle Guellich

Last night my husband and I went bowling. We had an awesome time the staff was very friendly and helpful. They had great prices and they had cleaned up the place since I was last there. The guy serving drinks was super friendly he even gave me an awesome recipe to spice up Ramen noodles. To the staff at AMF I would like to sincerely apologize for my husband’s poor attitude. Keep up the great work Venice AMF

Nikki Duyn

Check in was easy front counter staff was very nice. Food was good but took a very long time. We placed an additional order for nachos and ended up cancelling it after waiting 25 minutes. They still had not started to make them. It was not a busy night...

Stacey Murphy

Fun place to bowl! We went during the day and it wasn't crowded. A great day here.

Phil B

Decent place but the food sucks.

Dreao Euart

Sure, I know it's not the best place you have ever been bowling, if your looking for great food, bright lights and so clean you feel like you just got out of the shower..... BUT this place has been here for many years! And for a few good reasons, all around good fun times! They have a small arcade thaaaat is not the best but, hey it has one! I go here frequently with my family and friends for a good night out. Never a disappointment and always fun memories!

James Steiner

Lanes were nice and clean. Fun day but still cost $100 to take my two boys.

Steve Martin Smith

Love the new bowling balls and shoes we bought here.

Steven LeBlanc

Great for spending time with friends and family. Even has a food bar that serves pizza.

Fred Wickwire

Prices too high, can't afford to bowl anymore!

Jason Elg

Old shotty equipment. Ball return held balls on the belt leaving scuffs all over. Ball return at the pit holds balls and takes chunks out. Had a brand new storm phisix ($200 bowling ball) come back with chunks out of the ball. If your using your own equipment be ware.

Ivan Prada

We went bowling last night, we had fun, at 11:15 I tried to order a drink, a really FAT man said that the bar was close, if the bowling alley is open until midnight why the bar close at 11 , that is a good way to lose business, many other people come in to spend money and left because they where not able to get drink, this is for the fat man behind the counter, McDonald is open 24 hours, anyway you don't need it .

Angelo Trovato

Welcome to AMF Venice Lanes.

Stephanie Gillespie

The need more help

Shannon Marie

It's a nice fun place to bowl.

Jenny Causey

Had lots of fun!

fun with karter !!!

Clean place, small game room

Suzanne Sinclair Thomson

Great place, was not crowded at all.

Christine Shaffer

Friendly staff! Non-smoking facility. Non-working arcade area. One manned snack bar and lounge.

Terry Walker

A little shabby but okay for an occasional game of bowling.

Jim Armour

The alleys are shabby and ill-maintained. It is understaffed. If you try to get overhead fans turned off in cold weather they give you a ridiculous reason why they have to keep them on.

Za Warudo

Fun for all ages.

Tiffany Foster

Food service a little slow, but had a fun time bowling.

Don Laws

Needs major upgrade of the machines,also, lanes should be finished more often than once a day during league play

Thomas wiegand

Great service

Tim Treece

It's a pretty good place, not grand. The house balls are pretty beat up.

john goodman

Employees stole money on credit card! Equipment raggedy! Bathroom filthy! Arcade games broken! Praise the Lord!

Dana Zelnio

I loved it, only 4 stars cause it took 10minutes to get two sodas as the food court girl sat on her phone after we already paid and told her what we wanted.

Melinda Croce

Great place to have a child’s birthday party. The kids had fun bowling and the side rails were down so that they had success.

Chef Chrissie Lapidow

We had fun bowling but the place isn’t exactly up to date or clean. Bathrooms smelled terrible and were not well stocked, lanes were faulty, service was just okay.

Randy Stephenson

Friendly helpful staff. Had a great time on my son's birthday.

Brian W.

Very nice staff. Woman at food station was exceptional.

Mike & Britt

Kiddos had a tournament & it was huge and Fancier than Sarasota lanes.

Isabel Creed

Fun. Busy on fridays. Relatively clean place.


We've been going here for many years. Great place to spend an afternoon or evening in Venice. It's looking a bit worn, and I'd give a 3 star for cleanliness. Service from staff is hit or miss, but usually very good. Food is good, beer is nice and cold. Try out some of their specials, can't beat those for an inexpensive night out!

Steve Andress

Awesome place

Andrea Frederiksen

Fun times, good drink specials.

Mary Munson

The attendants behind the counter we're very pleasant and helpful.

steven whitney


Stephen Conley

Could be so much better. But not bad.

richard weber

Lots of good deals, just ask at front desk

Peter D. Witman II

Great place, Great Staff, Never a dull moment or bad time!!!!

Kenny Marcum

Fun place to bowl and play arcade games on a rainy day.

Evan Slaughenhoupt

Wonderful location who treats those with special needs...well, special

andrea frederiksen

Great bowling deals. Nice lanes

Traci Brennan

This place is pathetic even for a bowling alley. Very dirty, understaffed and overpriced. Waited 10 minutes for food service and the drinks were watered down. It's a good thing it's the only bowling alley in the area or they would be out of business. Would not recommend.

Carl Mora

Very Nice and we had a Blast

Uriah Smith

The place is very dated, house balls are super beat up and need to start to be replaced. Some of the lanes don't work well. Small children won't register when they throw which really makes the small kids super happy. Went in with a group of 14 to celebrate nephews bday went to concession to get pitchers of soda for the kids and adults and I swear this man was higher than a Boeing 747. I was told they don't do pitchers of soda you have to buy them individually ( which is false because we usually come here for birthdays because it's local) I was also told that if I wanted to order any food "it would be awhile because there is a party going on" and I could speak to the manager. They are always understaffed. This place is a joke now we will go to sarasota or port charlotte from now on. Don't waste your money.

ThePremativeChill logan

Its expensive and so is the food . But other than that its pretty fun.

Ronni C.

Older facility but a fun place with good service

Scott Bruns

Kids had a blast very friendly staff

Venus Barnhard

We had lots of fun.

John Mast

Nice place. A little pricey

Tommy Nuckolls

The lanes are uneven and the employees are clueless

Gary Smith

Great facility & management. Brought 70 summer camp kids and they loved the time spent here.

Richard Curt

Good family fun

Kesianna Franks

Great atmosphere. Lanes in great condition. And the food was ok. We had a great time.

Amanda Price

We were a party of 4. Played 2 games (so 8 total/pp), but got charged for 11 (extra 3 games!) because my husband and step father decided to bowl a few practice rounds while we waited forever for our food! Ordered food, took an hour to get it, fries came out first and cold, then pizza and wings. Pizza was so unevenly cooked, half was burnt, and one piece was raw. Wings were cold and DROWNED in sauce. All this said, the poor girl was in the kitchen by herself while the other worker stood around doing nothing instead of helping her... Not to mention the manager phoning it in while bowling with his kids, instead of helping her. Thankfully they acknowledged my online coupon, or we'd of spent well over $100 for mediocre bowling/food and even worse service.

Shawn Sharrow

Bowling is great fun

Amberlee Baker

Nice staff, food was amazing, and plenty of room.

Brandin Swain

Very fun bowling times!

Leah Steves-Whitney

Clean, fun environment

joyce closurdo

Needs to up grade equipment

unright bastage

A lil pricey. Food n drinks way overpriced. $5 a game. Tons of lanes though. Not crowded mid day during week. Can bowl in peace. Pro shop is well displayed and priced. Staff is friendly. Pool tables r a nice touch.

Kerline L. Adrien

I had fun. The cashier wasn't to friendly

Scott Strand

Friendly, clean, and reasonably priced

Stephanie Galehouse

Fun but pizza was horrible

Arthur McMillin

Tom Cartwright

Had a great time . people that work there are friendly and helpful.

Lynda Citro

Good bowling Don't eat there

D PHall

Not bad but didn't read the small print in the groupin Chouinard that said must wait 24 hours before using. I'm sure there's a good reason, don't quite know what that is, but just seems money wasted.

Amber Armstrong

Place is filthy,No baby changing tables in restrooms.The roof near entrance is leaking they createda patch and even that is leaking. The bathrooms are just GROSS. The staff was great though. They need to put a little cash into redoing this place. I will be taking my busniess to treasure lanes in PC until then.

Kathleen Caffee

My daughter loves to come here to bowl, we’ve never been when it’s overly crowded. They serve your typical microwave junk food. There are a few arcade games. Staff is approachable. Machinery looks well cared for and works.

john shank

went on a sunday with 14 of us we spent a few hours of bowling fun until the very unprofessional what i think is a poor excuse for a manager telling me that we played 75 games and owed them $200! I tried explained to him that I only played 3 and that if in deed we played 75 that each of us would have had to play 6 games a person WHICH DID NOT HAPPEN ! he did not want to hear anything i had to say except that his machine says we played 75 games the same machine that had to be fixed when a few of us had a strike but did not count up the points ! its a shame that after the 14 of us had already spent $200 on food and drinks you would think that the amount of game that we did play which was 55 not 75 they would in good customer service they would be happy to receive. Very poor management. Owning my own buss. in the local area I will be more then happy to let all my clients know about our family experience.

Roman Coe

Great time

Pavel Vera

Fun with family. Good service...


This place has gone into the ground. Seriously think it's the leagues that keep this place afloat. Filthy nasty mold coming from cracks in the walls on the far left wall, bathrooms without soap and hand towels. Water in bathroom sinks barely run. Staff could care less all around. Absolutely a dump

James Stretch

Love the new food menu! Bowling was nice and Jenny was very helpful!

Cory judo

Love chilling here since I was in highschool. Just needs some pest control and some more spunk in the crew.

Shirley Mele

Needs help carpets are in need of cleaning and more staff.

Richard Abel

Nice bowling alley

James Belmer

Eric Y

Venice Lanes is a clean fun family atmosphere.

Danielle Ester\VanPelt

Nice place to take the family

casey rager

I got a great deal with groupon. We did enjoy our time

Nazy Mortazavi

I love love love this place! It's an old building but it's so much fun for so little money!

Diana McKannan

Great place for fun with family and friends

Leedog Rottie

Nice Lanes, a tad bit oily but challenging. Helpful personnel and friendly people. Nice environment for any age.

Kathy Harmening

Fun with friends. Enjoyed..

Matt Martin

Should of looked at how they handled pricing before playing multiple games. Where we live the pricing is handled differently. The staff was friendly. The inside was dated and old.

Lauren Ginand

Nice place but they are having some maintenance issues. Two teams on our league had to wait over an hour to play today as there was problems with the Lanes. Hard working staff.

Kenny Jobst

Great place just a little expensive. No wifi either. Friendly staff.

Macie Lee

Rude employees

Rose Scrase

Get off the phone and bowl!

Robert Benzo

Good place to throw the ball around

Charlie Abruzzo

Nice place Fun experience

James Hawkins

Very clean very friendly and reasonably priced.

Tracee Young

Older & somewhat outdated, but the employees are helpful & friendly.

Dave Fulkerson

I was honestly shocked at the price. Shoe rental and game price was per person. It amounted to, for a family of four, $35.00 per game. I was even more shocked when we arrived at 1045 we were told we had to be done by 1130 because of league bowling. The league needs all 40 lanes, and leagues take priority over open bowling. Whatever...I was just trying to take my family bowling. I protested a little, but they stood their ground. There were about 8 more families behind me that heard the same thing. We left at 11:15 and there wasn't a single league bowler around but we would have stayed longer...

Dead Phoenix

My kids always have a blast

Melissa Hunter

The place itself was nice, but their prices are high. I think $3.69 for a small drink is a little much.

Robert Remes

My daughter had a coupon for a free game. Before we left they gave us two more coupons. Really nice people.

Benjamin Spencer

It's pretty clean and the staff was friendly, would have rated higher but having to pay $15 for just 2 games and 1 shoe rental is a little much!

Jessica Hagarty

No wait, we wondered why they had a ton of lanes open.....they are excessively priced for bowling compared to other bowling organizations in Sarasota and Charlotte county.
