REVIEWS OF Lucky Strike IN Illinois

Mendy Zee

nice place to go out and having a good time! they have every thing from bowling to Billiards, games etc. nice bar. the only problem is that they have old bowling balls an very small variety to choose from

Tamatia Gabrielle Hayward

Had a company event at the Bethesda location today and had a blast! Lindsay and Eddie were great hosts. The food was delicious and the team really enjoyed themselves.

Nannette Curet

Just celebrated my adult Twin boys birthday here!! Everyone had an AMAZING time!! Our server, Tiffany, was on top of her game!! She made sure food and drinks were ready!! Thank you for a WONDERFUL time!!

Chirag Parikh

Seasoned Bowlers Beware If you are looking to bowl, DO NOT go here. If you're there to just hang out and drink with friends then you'll have an ok time. The lanes are not maintained at all. Tons of dents and no oil on the lanes at all. Halfway into our session, the system went haywire. The bowling balls did not come back then the pin sensors stopped working so the computer couldn't tell which pins were knocked down. Eventually the whole lane shut down. It seemed like many of the lanes had similar issues. My advice is to stay away. Pin Stripes is nearby. Might be better off going there.

Trevor Vogler

This venue was fantastic for hosting a small professional society outing! Our server was very attentive and the staff was very accommodating in general. Great way to relax with some fancy cocktails, billiards, and darts. The dart lounges were a ton of fun for a combination of competitive and relaxed competition. Will definitely be coming back at some point!

Irma Monterrosa

Amazing time at Lucky Strike. I celebrated my daughter's sweet sixteen there. The ambience was great, food and drinks were delicious without breaking the bank and the service was top notch. Highly recommend it.

Natasha B

My company had a summer event/party at Lucky Strike on a Thursday night. Lucky Strike's management and accommodations for us made it a great night! There was great food, great bowling, and amazing drinks. Everyone had a phenomenal night. I would recommend this place for a fun night out with friends, a company event, or just a family outing. Thank you to the Lucky Strike management for making the event possible and exceptional!

Really fun to be with friends and hangout. There is also an arcade nearby.

Cool spot to bowl . Great food and drinks

Vincent avitabile

Jon Goetz

Good food, good lanes, good times.

Samuel Cline

Awesome bowling. Awesome arcade. Great venue.

Hash Brown

They have pool tables, bowling, darts and strong drinks!

Basuraj Agrawal

Had lot of issues with bowling lanes messing up the score every 2 chances. For the hefty price that customers pay, we at least expect your bowling lanes to work flawlessly.

Lloyd Taylor

Good drinks, good place for after work fun.

Adriana Mejia

Jeffrey Voeks

A fun place with really good service.

Truevine H.

s pringz

Awesome atmosphere and great service!

Larry Carlock

Nice atmosphere, but Lanes were not oiled properly and approach was sticky. The virtual games weren't always working properly, could have been because we weren't used to them. But wait staff was friendly and helpful.

Chan Huang

Went here for a corporate event and it was quite enjoyable! The food was surprisingly good for a bowling alley, and they were able to pull curtains to partition off seating areas for your party. Large facility with some other things like pool and ping pong available if you're tired of bowling. The staff was friendly and service was plentiful, which is great for large groups. I give them 8/10!

ankit chainani

Pretty decent place, located in the downtown AMC building on 2nd floor. We were party of 5 booked bowling alley for an hour. Prices are not very expensive, the thing which we loved is the neon lighting on the bowling alley. Huge space, they have a dining area, darts, pool tables and ping pong. In terms of food enchiladas were really good, tasty guac, bad pizza though (we tried margherita). Friendly servers, quick service over all nice place to hangout with a group. Bowling balls were too rugged, too much of wear and tear very old real improvement required in that area.

Alik Aliev

Great place for bowling. Costumer service great and friendly , helpful staff nice attitude ! Clean and score displayed nicely on the screen. Great bowling place for group. The lines keeped well... Highly recommend this place . We really enjoyed thank you!

Justin Bobby

I had fun bowling but was very hungry I played a hour of bowling and the server was no where in sight to ask us if we wanted food I was very upset

Banff 98

I just took my mom who is visiting from Philadelphia to Lucky Strike after we took in a movie at Arclight. I should say up front that I cannot speak to the food quality offered by the restaurant, but in terms of beer selection, this establishment is very subpar indeed...Stella, Sam Adams, about four or five relatively decent craft brews, yada yada yada (The whole "Gastro Pub" definition needs to be reevaluated). And, like another reviewer stated, we found the service to be very poor, as well. This is unfortunate, as I was really looking forward to finding a place near our home that we could call our "neighborhood bar." Unfortunately, the service offered up at Lucky Strike seems to sum up my firm opinion that customer service is currently taking a nosedive in this country. Folks that served us just had the attitude that "you get what you pay for" and I'm not doing anymore than the bare minimum. For GREAT beer selection and service, I recommend Downtown Crown Beer and Wine in Gaithersburg, MD.

Evan Krichevsky

We were at Lucky Strike for an office function. Lucky Strike provided mixed drinks and beers of our choice and a variety of horses d'oeuvres for eating. We used four lanes for bowling and some even used the gutter bumpers.

Kelly Marks

I didn't even make it inside the door! I called to book a lane for me, my husband, and 3 kids and they wanted $75 per hour to bowl and that didn't include shoes or food. In addition they wanted $20 per person for food. What kid eats $20 of food?! Then when I tried to ask about the charges the staff were rude. Not a family friendly place. Too bad as I have been to other ones and the experience was great!

Lillian Pierce

Had a good time on our Company bowling outing.

Nana Akua Antwi

Nice place and staff

Greg Callegari

Large amount of pool tables and bowling alley. Full bar, servers, and dart. Great place for an afternoon or private party.

Donatien Ndikumana

Lucky Strike, is a good place to hang out after work. Girls / ladies out . they have all kind of good and beer plus mix drinks...make sure you go there when ANDRE the Bar Attendant is the...he is a cool guy and fun at the Bar. They have sport activities , balling and pool table game if you into it... The bathrooms are clean...and nice Staff

Robert Mech

Been here a number of times. Nice place to hang out.

Ryan Hogue

This location was more a restaurant/bar than a bowling alley. Still super nice whether you want to dine, drink, or bowl (we did all of the above).

Bryan Castillo

Game was alright, the staff where complete asswholes.

Gina Driskell

A fun place for recreation, bowling and pool. Lots of tv's and good tunes. The burgers are really good.

David Jeffers

Came here for an event, the event was a ton of fun. I didn't have much interaction with the staff or the food so take my review with a grain of salt. Overall though my parents was very pleasant.

John Coon

Most satisfying evening anyone could ask for at this place. The staff is truly amazing and make you feel like family when your there. Highly recommend this place for a night out on the town.

Josh Maisel

Great food here. The meat in sliders is killer!

Justin McPherson

My friends and i typically go once a month for $2 dollar Tuesday's to enjoy Happy hour after work a few games of bowling. Have never had any issues with this place and will continue to go. They also started having paint nite here as well.

Carlette Merrill

Great workers, great atmosphere, great times!!


Great place ! They have pool tables,Bowling alley and bar! You can also sit down and have a meal! A bit pricey though but you’ll enjoy your night out.

Mendy Zee

nice place to go out and having a good time! they have every thing from bowling to Billiards, games etc. nice bar. the only problem is that they have old bowling balls an very small variety to choose from

FreedomStar Daru

Pretty swanky place with good food and bowling.

Nathaniel Davis

The food is mediocre and vastly overpriced, the equipment is buggy, and the staff is disorganized and unhelpful. I came 6 weeks straight for Better Off Bowling social league, and it was a disaster all around. Some of it was the fault of the league, but the venue didn't help. If you're considering the league or just going for an afternoon out, save your money and find a better place to bowl.


Really fun, and the service was great. At $90 an hour, it was a bit expensive. But it's expected for the location.

Renuka Sharma

They do kids' bday parties here!

Kemley Nieva

Good service! Great place to rent out for big groups!

Thelma Collins

Staff was very friendly but the lady serving at the bar could have been a little more pleasant. But we had a awesome time!!!!!!!

Nannette Curet

Just celebrated my adult Twin boys birthday here!! Everyone had an AMAZING time!! Our server, Tiffany, was on top of her game!! She made sure food and drinks were ready!! Thank you for a WONDERFUL time!!

Abigail Danian

This place is bs! We called 24 hours ahead to place a reservation and were told it is first come first serve. We paid $200 for 12 people to bowl one game and when we asked about another game we were told we cannot play due to a reservation coming in. Now we have 1.5 kill and have to pay there high rates for pool and ping pong. The service was very good though!

vasu nagpal

Good for co-operate parties, serving is a little slow though

P Hayes

My son just had his 32nd Birthday celebration here. We all had a ball. The server for our large 2 lane party was good and the food too. We will return.

Brenda Wms

A family place , food is served for an ok price, near transportation, located in an good area

Merida Gordils

Food was amazing!!! ,very friendly staff I highly recommend!!!

LeShawn J. Hodge

Had a great time with colleagues. Food and drinks were good. Bathroom extremely clean. I would definitely recommend.

Jonathan M

Nice atmosphere good music and good fun !!


Lucky Strike is a great experience and our servant was awesome.

Augusto Cangahuala

$2 Tuesdays ($2 Shoes and $2 per game). We had a blast! The place is really cool and the food is pretty tasty too. Fun for the whole family.

Kris Schneider

Good vibe. Good for all ages, groups. Singles, couples l, first dates, blind dates, first mates, right out the gates. Whether your a red fish blue fish, like the burgers or tuna fish this place is poppin G. *mic drop*

Elaine Richardson

Food was good servers absolutely lost horrible just go to the bar .Be aware you will still have to pay for parking after they stamp your tickets unlike other places you're still paying $12 dollars or so. The place is nice pool tables are over $20 a hour a bit ridiculous overall fun just not worth it we had fun. However if your bringing two kids it ads up fast. His beer was like $5.50 for a Coors long neck.

Daniel Dobbs

Walked in from the rain last night and the staff was horrible. Especially the girl at the counter to enter the bowling alley. Manager was nice.

Alfonso S

Food was good for a bowling alley but they need a better bowling ball selection.

pietro previte

I did not like the seat distribution, and felt not cozy nor comfortable. The rest awesome

Amit Agrawal

Look at the score and 10th game

Connor Skelly

cashiers are really shady when it comes to price. I was told my check covered one service but was later double charged for it. Won’t be coming back for sure

Josue Martinez

Joseph Winters

If your looking for fun and great time. Go enjoy Lucky Strike. Good food and atmosphere. Bowling can be a stress relief, for people how wanna fun and also for the serious bowlers as well.

Eduardo Szkolnik

Employees don’t know what they are doing, don’t come here

David Mnatsakanov

Good place for relaxe after hard day

Ibtehaj Khan

My first time here and it was for a birthday event. Service was amazing and fast. I was set up to bowl within 5 minutes, that's including shoes and everything. What I was most surprised was how good the food was. Prices were also reasonable for this time of event. No longer do we have to attend bowling alleys that look like we just stepped back into the 90's. I highly recommend this place for events or just to kick back with friends for a good night out.

Holly Dorazio

The facilities were very nice and there is a decent selection for adult drinks, including wine by the bottle. Overall great atmosphere and a lot of fun. I omitted 1 star though because of a pizza I bought there that was more like bread with a few things on it. The fried Mac and Cheese was great and other people's food looked good as well (for pub style food) just don't order the Pizza, which, because it's Chicago, I doubt many people order from a bowling alley anyway. Haha

Andrew Tucker

Timothy Turpin

Great fun, amazing service!

James King

Had a great time! Will be going back.

Tyrrell Eccles

Dave S

Bowling was fine, but the music was ridiculously loud and the price for an hour of bowling is absurd.

Dolores Y Cortez

The sauces are amazing, food was great, waitress was on point.

Mary Lee James

Such a great time with the kids and family. Jordan was a great server and took good care of us.

Monica Martins Iasz

Had a great time bowling with the family. This is the second time we’ve been there and we enjoyed it.

Vincent Laucella

Ery cool ambie

ira Wesley

Lucky Strike is a great place to go. I'm a limo driver I take a lot of people to Lucky Strikes. And they have many come back and pick them up.

aydenben aydenben

Make reservations or just call and ask how busy they are the day of your outing

Rashad Carson

I am visiting Chicago, and this is the worst service I have received here. We arrived at about 6:30pm, ordered food, and a round of drinks. Not only did we not see our server until an hour and 15 later, but we had 2 rounds at the bar and received out food at 8pm! We legit watched multiple tables who ordered after us receive their food before. And once we got our food later, the order wasn't as what we ordered. ...... So i just found out that two orders haven't even arrived lol... this is laughable. Please don't come here. We had a table of four, and a 1 year old. I'm a service member. If i did my job this bad, people would die. ...... So, to fix the issue, the hostess gave us our appetizers for free and brought the table a dessert. I feel bad for her, because she wasn't the issue. But again, save yourself the trouble and go elsewhere.

Sandor Panton

Group of us there had fun - bowling, table tennis, video games and pool. Drawback - bowling area design made it a bit inconvenient/disruptive to move around your rented area.

Teresa Semorile

Came here for an event involving a large group. They were more than accommodating. The waitress was also very attentive. Thanks!

Davis J

Irma Monterrosa

Amazing time at Lucky Strike. I celebrated my daughter's sweet sixteen there. The ambience was great, food and drinks were delicious without breaking the bank and the service was top notch. Highly recommend it.

Sahil Kumar Rajvanshi

Eric Machicote

Had a blast with the co-worker's today! Lucky Strike is very clean, modern, luxurious.


As a corporate Planner I can honestly say I have experienced every aspect of the venue. The atmosphere is incredibly fun and inviting for corporate groups and friends. The staff is friendly, inviting and accommodating. The food is really good. I have held several corporate events here and have never been disappointed. There is so much to do and it doesn't matter how big your group is, there is a space that works perfectly. I highly recommend!

Alexander Kotukhov

Great location in Downtown Chicago! Awesome food and drinks!


So very nice bowling alley it's a little pricey though but I mean if you're looking for a good time and you really want to have a lot of fun in Chicago this is one of the coolest places to go they have pool tables that have bowling drinking food arcade games a lot of them you can plan parties there and get unlimited gameplay and arcade gameplay I had an awesome time there thank you

CheRa Don

The place was cool and the staff was great , I just got a separate charge on my c.f. statement later...

Joe Nastri

The newest outpost of the DC regional modern bowling hall meets bar / restaurant. Nice looking space, it's within Montgomery Mall in North Bethesda. Food is decent to good in the few of times I've been there is a mix of sandwiches, pizza, entrees and starters. For example, the burger lacks proper seasoning for the meat itself, although the rest of the condiments & other additions looked pleasing. Deviled Eggs starter contains bacon (BACON!) but the kitchen additionally salts the dish, so the combination of bacon and an occasional heavy handed kitchen can make for the dish to be too salty. Drinks are currently a mix of not-too-interesting beer list, along with some cocktails and wine (I'm told that there with to improve the beer list with not interesting selections). Friendly staff here. Bowling lanes are modern with large TV's that can show a mix of programming -- I spied some kid shows at certain lanes. Looks to be ideal for groups.

Lynn E

This past April, I contacted this location in hopes to secure a reservation for one of my son's graduation celebrations. As an out of town parent, it was refreshing to receive such great dialogue. All of my inquiries were answered in a timely manner; the customer service and detailed information was tremendous. Although I opted to not make this venue one of our celebratory spots, the next time I travel up to NYC, I would definitely love to make it a point to visit this Venue.

King Kewon

Came for my birthday and had a great time. Edgar the manager went out his way to make sure my party had a blast!

Lakeisha Cecil

Great. Lighting and food, plenty of seating. John was an attentive server

darshi malkan

Great ambience. Great Tuesday deal for $2 games. Casual food options. The drink menu is versatile. Great staff.

Mo Doza

Too expensive for no reason. For bowling, rather then charging by the game they charge by the hour. That's a high way robbery! And there is no parking in the neighborhood... So to compensate they should drop the prices. Just smart business, that's all.

Norman Tam

Amazing time! Great service, food and drinks. Always tons of fun. Friendly and helpful staff especially Head security Ray. Highly recommend to dates, groups or corporate functions

Rishi Solanki

Pool tables are pretty good. The sticks can be better but nice ambience and decent service.

David Brundage

Johnny Saltos

Normasaltos excellent

Kolya Tevosyan

Simply don’t come here. Awful service, rude staff. There are many other Bowlings out there, find somewhere else.


The bartender, Kenny, is awesome!

Q ThaMac

Great place to go for a date or to just have fun.

Nick Graziano

Was there for a business event, and the staff there were excellent. Food was good, the drinks were cold. The lanes were decent and the pool tables were nice. Overall great experience

Tom Neuman

Really expensive and the bowling won't even last for a full hour but only 55 mins and it will also end before you can finish the last game That whole thing cost 75$ and no one even passed by to get us drinks or ask us for it, worst bowling experience ever! You guys should improve the service and the guys at the counter take a long time and don't seem to know how to do their job...

Jason K

I will not be going to Lucky Strike in Bethesda ever again. The guy told me my CC was declined and that i needed to give another card so i did. Well the first card was charged then the second was as well. I was charged twice. No one did anything about it at all. So I'm out of $50.

a one

Great time parking sucks

Phyllis Parris-Borum

Nice place pricey but nice

Marlin J

My first time and what a nice place! I love the all the things to do there, from bowling to pool to laser video games. The environment was good. The staff was attentive and polite. The food and drinks was great. This is definitely a place I will be visiting again.

cdm4885 .

Cool space with a nice laid-back vibe. Comfy leather sofas in all the lanes. A more extensive menu than your normal bowling alley fare. My only issue is that the many flat-screen televisions tend to obscure the view of other lanes. When I am bowling that's what I want to see, bowling. We also had some minor scoring issues but the staff was very helpful and resolved them quickly.

John Scavullo

Relaxed atmosphere for bowling and drinks/food. Bowling is nice for kids and families because the bumpers go up and come down depending on the bowler.

Andy Clements

We (family of 5 and friends) experienced a rainy day during our stay to see the city of Chicago last May. Upon a quick search online we discovered Lucky Strike right next to our hotel. We had an absolute blast for several hours bowling, playing ping-pong, and billiards. We also found the variety and quality of food and drinks to be excellent! Staff were extremely friendly and very helpful showing us the ropes as we had never visited before. We will definitely visit again next time we're in the city!!!

Keith Bradford

Nice selection of burgers cooked to order. Plenty of space for pool, ping pong, & bowling. We bowled but didn't even get a chance to do the Miniature golf or the laser tag. Great for parties and groups. Like Dave & Busters no minors after 9:00 but definitely still great family atmosphere.

Johnnie A

Was there for a company party, and the different game options were good.


I came here for my graduation and it was amazing! Highly recommended.

Erik Binter

Prices seemed a little high for the state of upkeep (darts area especially, also bowling balls damaged), and I'm not a fan of the videos over the bowling, but the staff was friendly, atmosphere had good energy, and I enjoyed my time there.

Adwoa Achiaa Bonsu

Cool bowling place to have fun with family and friends

Vimel Peguero

PERFECT for Bowling@

chaya Joseph

We had a great experience with the customer service. We were greatly impressed how well the place is maintained. Everything looked very clean and well taken care of.we had a great time.

Nekeisha Joseph

Fun experience with good appetizers. Family friendly

Daniel Barrientos

The food was super salty (both burgers). The server was nowhere to be found and it wasn't packed at all. Also, we had paid for two bowling games and was told we are able to finish the game after closing. We were on the 9th frame and we got kicked out without finishing the game... The clerk had told us it was okay to finish but the security guy kicked us out exactly at 1am.. We had one frame left!! Horrible experience all around... Chicky cheese has better service!

Matthew Zinetti

Great time, organized an outing with around 30. Contacted reservations to get packages and pricing. (Several different proce points) and very accommodating. Excellent atmosphere, the whole gathering thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Service was acceptable, one improvement point is food, it was pub sort, but no one really had a positive take. All in all, recommended.

Etsube Seleshi

Good food.

E s

Please get staff to keep facility clean in the lavatory. Thanks

The Montenegro Era

I really enjoy going to Lucky Strike because it’s a really dinner/ bowling place to go to. The bowling alley has a lot of projection screens to watch the basketball games. If your into spicy food, I would recommend the chicken tinga quesadilla. It’s a really great appetizer to have.

Computer Plus

First time here and it was amazing, never knew I could bowl lol but the staff was friendly and helpful, the atmosphere was filled with a nice vibe.

Tyler Robinson

Usually not too crowded

Mehdi Zare

Everything is good, except the fact that space is super limited. It's like you're blocking people who are playing on the other lane...

Fredrik Otter

Expensive bowling place in a mall. No one is bothering about your well being. The beer is almost always disgusting and you really want to know how some craft beers will sell to this place.

sasha butler

Sashana Harris

My co-workers are amazed with the excellent services that we received... ..from shady grove Adventist healthcare to lucky strike job well done....good job Laura Gates and your team

Reece Exley

Great fun well organized definitely recommend this as a fun night out

jane val

We were invited here for a members only event. What a fun place to bowl, play pool, ping pong, or hang out and have a drink with friends or something to eat. The decor is neon modern and has a vintage vibe to it. Lots of colors and neon. Had so much fun bowling, prices are reasonable and the lanes are in great shape. The bowling balls from Lucky Strike, unfortunately, were really beat up, but the rental shoes were in really great shape. The 18 bowling lanes are modern and technologically up to date. We played a few games of pool too, there are a lot of tables here, 11 tables total, you should not have to wait for one. Food prices are reasonable, but drinks are a little on the high side. With all the options available for fun, Luck Strike is truly an entertainment complex for the whole family.

Karni S

Lovely bowling spot, the best I've been to in the City

Sarah Ocul

It's really pricey here, but it's a fun and beautiful place to be.

alleshia ostrander

Brand new place. Food had great flavor and drink were refreshing.

Cristhoper Flores

Rieueyruro I Do. Orbital. Ooej

Wiktor Mikos

Fun place to spend with friends and co-workers. Balls are a bit beat-up but the lanes are good as well as the pool tables.

Dominic Pallini

Great experience !

Getchapaypa Boy Hancock

It was ok but our guns didn't work for about 15 minutes and we weren't offered a different place to sit. They only comped us five minutes on top of the time that was already paid for. To make matters worse I wanted wings and fries. They only offered wings and waffles and the bartender didn't ask the cool if we could substitute them for an upcharge. She flat out said no. Not something they can do. Never heard of that in my life. Plus I think the bartender was ready to go. I don't blame her. Poor girl.

Marlon Holder Jr

It a very nice place to go bowling with family or friends, but the prices are kind of high to play a game.

RJ Coleman

Fun place for a lunch outing with office colleagues! Friendly service, good food and fun bowling.

Matthew O

Idk I wasn’t able to be served because they closed at 11, but they didn’t let my wife drink or play bowling and it was like 10.

Issam K

At first glance I thought this place was very nice, my friends and I decided to play bowling but our lane was freezing every single time. You would think that for the price you pay, bowling lanes would be properly maintained.

Berlinda's Food 4 The SOUL

We live across the street..went last night and invited our friends to "treat" and we were not impressed with this bowling alley.. The bowling balls were damaged and there was an unclean feeling to the place.. our table was dirty and they set our cups face down on them for us to drink?!! No thank you. Even the pop was terrible (flat artificial sweet) we sent it back twice. How can you get soda wrong?! REFUND PLEASE! Sucks cause there soooooo close nd I wanted it to be a great time with our friends. I like to bowl :(

Gabo Games Galore

Jenn Webster

Went for a company happy hour. They were VERY accommodating. I would return again.

UnShell Felder

FTW was super fun.. My family enjoyed it!!

Patrick Crawford

The food was... Interesting. Nothing bad, but nothing great. Service was pretty slow, considering it's located in the same building as the AMC. We had to walk the check up to the hostess stand ourselves or we would be late to our movie. What's perhaps the most disturbing was being offered a pencil to sign our checks. Ouch.

RiRi Shaw

They have got strict on the dress code it. It didn’t use to be like that 2 years ago and the prices also went up $40 a lane I’ll pass

Mia Berry

Crystal Washington

great drinks. fun atmosphere. great for adult group outings and drinks

Chelsea Lux

Fun place to bowl at! The food is really good too!

Nicole Huntington

Happy hour wasn't bad. All the mixed drinks come in regular drink glasses.

Rana Alghamdi

my Memories are here loved it

Madeline Hunter

Quiet surprised by the atmosphere. Very clean and lively. Great location for Date Night! Menu is well-rounded with standards and a few surprises.

S. Verissimo

Nice place to spent a time with friends...

Angela Jarrett

Amazing..had an amazing waiter. .food was excellent...Will go back before we leave NY

Nicole Morgan

So much fun. There's something to do for everyone. Ping pong. Bowling. Pool. Video games. Their chicken is to DIE for


Fun fun fun! The food was actually really good, and they had vegan options. The drinks were a little pricey but typical of NY bars. Great place to try. Staff was helpful and friendly.

Sneha Pandey

Everything is great. Billiards is a bit expensive but the bowling alley is good.

Dan Galaviz

Great place for lunch and bowling


Food was meh, lanes and balls were ok... But, the space was nice. Good place to hang out if you care about friends more than bowling or eating

Bryant Kelley

I usually have fun here, but I've been coming here for 3 years, and they rarely update any games,and it gets really boring after awhile, and though I would say the food is pretty good, it is overpriced for the quality of food actually recieved

Stephan Echeverria

Me & Munchkin

Good customer service

Adria S. Belin

Glen Pierce

Great place to relax and have a beer beforegetting on ferry


Darren Himebrook

Pure chaos, but the kids loved it. Staff was great.

Shreyas Chandrashekar

Its an amazing place to bowl. There is so much to do and the service is awesome

Maureen Morrone

Good food, attentive and curtious staff in the bowling area

Nye Dow

Way over priced $95 for 4 people to bowl. $22 for 1 cocktail and 1 pint of beer. Rude female bartender. Closes at 2am. We were asked to leave at 1:50 for closing. Bathroom was ok. Several toilets were left unflushed or stalls weren't clean.

Evelyn Wyss

Really disappointed with their customer service. We brought twenty well behaved Teenagers for a party, however, felt like being a burden for the managment. And we didn't ask any thing more than we paid for! It's sad if you bring dollars (and it's an expensive place for bowling), but all what you get back is this "do I really have to do this now" kind of attitude. The facility is nice and modern yet they need to brush up their customer service pretty much in order to survive in North Bethesda.

L I F E S.


Lou Gavino

Meh. Its lucky strike. Service was slow and food was ok.

Temperance Watkins

Service was bad...we had to ask to be seated, ask for a waiter, ordered chicken and waffles waffles were very dark hard and burnt. When asked server is it suppose to look like that the response with an attitude was well I can take it back.

Asia Anderson

The bartender was great. Our servers were not. We had to keep going to the bar to order. The couple sharing the same area as us had no problem getting their orders in though.

Matthew Rubin

Great staff. Great venue for parties. Private room for work, birthday, whatever.

Bowling meets club atmosphere. Was here for a party with a large group. Mostly went great but little details were off... For example, wait staff carried away drinks that weren't finished... We also had a technical problem, took them about 10 minutes to get our lane up and running and they said they would add time back but never did, we didn't feel like arguing / raising the issue at the end but it would have been the right thing to do...

Kionte Ferguson

Loved the music great music drinks are really good

Michael De Lio

Lots of activities for the family, good menu, service is always pretty quick and friendly. Bowling, billiards, darts and general relaxing location to watch sporting events on the many TVs.

Nicole Braun

Tons of fun! Great variety of games. You buy a card with points. Mist games are 3 to 10 points. You even win tickets for playing games and will earn prizes.

Evette Ramos

My daughter bday party


We arrived shortly before 9:00pm on a Monday (President's day) with the intention of bowling for 2 hours since their listed closing time is 11:00 on Mondays. We were informed that they'd be closing at 10:00 that day due to the fact that it was a slow day; their last call for food off the grill was 9:00 and drinks 9:30. I paid $50 for one hour of bowling for two people and I believe shoes normally cost additional but the person checking us in said he wouldn't ring them up this time (likely because they were closing early). I feel this price is pretty steep but that's not for me to decide, we were also informed that on Tuesdays they offer $2 games. After all of that was dealt with, the actual bowling experience was an easy 5/5. The atmosphere/lighting was very nice and made it feel private. The music played spanned a wide range but all of it was good (not much pop). The lanes were maintained well and the whole area seemed clean. The traditional plastic chairs in most bowling alleys were replaced with comfortable couches and there was a large table for food close to the lane. Our waiter was also fantastic and quick, even allowing us to order something off the grill a couple minutes before last call. To top it all off, when our time expired during the 6th frame our time was extended for no charge. Our drinks were stiff yet tasty and the food portions were massive; our chicken quesadilla was more than enough for two people. I can't comment on how busy/crowded some claim it gets with neighbors since it was slow that day but honestly I felt each area was quite spacious. I wish we could've stayed longer and I definitely plan on coming back soon.

Be careful, the place is a scan they will charge you double for online reservation. I will no based there again

Cristiana Wilson

Jayson Buterbaugh

My wife and I bowled a couple games. Our lane seemed uneven because the ball shifted direction several times when thrown light. The food was good and staff was nice. It's a nice place to go for food and fun. They also have TVs and board games at the lanes.

Olof Hernell

We reserved a lane at 12. We were there in time but the doors didn't open until way past 12. Then they had only one cashier serving all 12 o'clock parties. We started playing 25 mins past 12. Given the price I would have expected better quality across everything. The control panel at the lane we got was broken etc.

Eddelys Ramos

The best school trip ever

Liz Hernandez

Visited for a holiday party. It was a fun place to mingle with co-workers and their food options were good. Service was just okay even though it was a Wednesday night. The bowling lanes felt cramped: it was hard to get around other people due to the positioning of the seating areas.

iKing Star

Really nice vibe. Me and my boys had a great time there, we celebrated one of my friends bday there.

Chandon Sethi

Over priced as hell!!!

Bk Beauty

Had fun

eddy garcia

Really good for bithday celebrations

Lucian Jian

Great food and atmosphere. They could invest in some newer bowling balls as most are chipped.

Mile Olarte

Ill give this place one star. Food was good. So then why one star? Today, I was watching the world cup at the bar. On my third refill I found a baby cockroach inside my glass. I called my server's attention about that matter and she took my glass away, refilled with water and place it back where it was. I had a bad feeling about the new glass of water so I didnt drink. When she came back she asked "how is your drink now?", and I answered "I didnt see anymore cockroaches, that is an improvement". It is about how you handle a situation that makes a difference in a restaurant business. Once again, my burger was delicious though. If I ever come back, at least I know when I find something weird in my food or drink, I wont get that much out of it.

Lexi Stalcup

Horrible service. Barely saw our server. Took so long to get our food. Bad customer service.

Esemeliku Enow

Loved this place. The staff were so nice and accommodating.

Colleen Frease

I wasn't really happy with this place. I was here when it wasn't crowded and it took 20 minutes for me to get a drink. The pizza was a little gross and I asked four times for a glass of water that I never received. The menus also are incorrect so you don't know if what you want from the beer list is accurate. I left a decent tip, but won't be coming back

Serafina Musumeci

The weekend dress code is pretty strict, so I'd check it out before heading out. Other than that weekends are pretty lit, there's a DJ and a lounge area but bowling prices can be expensive. They always seem to have super cheap weeknight specials (like Sun-Wed) so I'd check those out if you're on a budget. The staff is awesome; go here.

Tracy Hoskins

Great facility with billiards, virtual shooting gallery, ping pong tables, bowling alley and great food and spirits. Great location for families and work colleagues to get together and have a great time. Jose was our Attendant/Server and he was outstanding!

Jan Green

good food, good prices. Was at the convention center and we needed a nearby place to eat and use facilities. Food was quite tasty and reasonably priced. Our party had the pizza, a burger, and wings. No complaints from anyone in our group. Place was very well kept and clean. Would recommend as a place to eat if you are near the convention center looking for food.

Matthew Priester

Good food and beer

SRGB Oreoz

Great food. And even greater service. Best bowling experience.

JC 720

Great gathering spot for friends to enjoy after work.

Marc Klein

Way, way overpriced. One night.

Joe Eason

Good time place

shalonda Newman

Zack Simon

Quality desserts and pretty nice lanes (for an amateur, at least)

Toba Haldorsen

Johannes Mockel

Denae Harmony

Pretty nice customer service even for a late night outing(I went around 10pm last night). But the bowling lanes were messing up, a few times our bowling balls werent coming back for mins at a time. and sometimes the pens weren't coming back up. But The craft pizzas were tasty. The Music was Great!

Adam Stricker

We had a great experience and were very well taken care of by the staff. Highly recommend planning a party or just a fun night of bowling at Lucky Strike.

Omar Ashkar

This was my worst experience ever. I was denied entry. I was wearing some slippers to go and bowl. Obviously I am going to be changing my shoes into bowling shoes, and they would not let me in which makes no sense at all. After driving an hour to go for a friends birthday party.

Gina McSwain

Very fun place to eat or just play games. Good for date night or just hanging with family and friends.

Ryan Olsen

This is an amazing place. Pool, bowling, darts, virtual shooting, video games, ping pong. There is so much to do here that you can't exhaust your options in one visit. The music was really loud when we went, but they were kind enough to turn it down when asked. Pricey, but it's downtown Chicago. I don't think you'll regret checking this place out.

Justin Puzonia

Love it. Food and drinks were great and our server was awesome!

Mark Townsend

Had a great time!


Had a great time at Lucky Strikes So much fun.. and Pizza was amazing.

Jeff Borsheim

Always go here! Love the atmosphere

Wayne Baptiste

Well lit, fun atmosphere. Some of the best lanes I've had the pleasure of bowling on. The sir conditioning could use a bit of an upgrade, but otherwise I've enjoyed my time here.

kenny marin

Great service! Staff was so friendly. Who ever cooked my food it was great!!! I believe the supervisor's name was chris. He introduced himself very respectfully, he was So nice! My mom loved the service and she doesn't live in Chicago. Definitely will be back.

Kimberly M

Best wings of my life! The dry rub was better than any of the wing sauces that I've ever had. Sophisticated yet hip environment, perfect for hanging out with friends. And don't get me started on the amazing happy hour deals

Paola Paletti

Very very good cheese burger, cooked at perfection with marvelous potatoes. I would rate better than the famous Legendary Very nice and fast service. Nice music and people

Erica Ivey

Nice environment and the games are fun. The food was also good. There was a quite a bit of wait for bowling nite I went which was yesterday, but was put on a waiting list. Recommend for a date nite, family nite, or nite out with friends.

T Mathews

The hostess was rude & lacked basic customer service skills. This "girl" who was positioned at the entrance on 4/24/18 in the evening, was politely asked for a drink of wine, her response was "You can go up to the bar and get it" basically refused service, then after several prompts to please send a waiter, she acquiesced after 5 full minutes, BUT she elected to within hearing & viewing distance speak negatively about paying customers. I would not recommend Lucky Strike as a venue; especially, if she is representative of the type of service one is subject to receive.

Jennifer Thomas

It was PERFECT!!! Just Had A Little Hard time with they Waiters/Servers. That part was VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!! But, other then that We Had A Great Time. It was Also A Little Pricey Too By the Way.

Terance Fernander

We held our holiday party here. I had a great time.

Qa'Bah Rahsaan

Visited this place on a late weekend evening for a birthday party. Everything was great until it was time to find a server. Bussers and security were always near, but this place is short on service staff. Although cash is accepted, I had to wait twice as long to be served than others using plastic. I had a wonderful overall experience but will be sure to eat before I go the next time.

Wayne Baptiste

Well lit, fun atmosphere. Some of the best lanes I've had the pleasure of bowling on. The sir conditioning could use a bit of an upgrade, but otherwise I've enjoyed my time here.

Luis Velez

Awesome great place spacious and good vibes

L Smith

First impression... Last time. I will never go back to this location. I typically bowl at 300 on shady grove road but decided to give this a try because I assume being in Bethesda would provide a better crowd with better service. Boy was I wrong! The staff is rude and incompetent at best and the manager on staff is not much better. I planned a night out with co workers and the night was cut short due to the staff lack of comprehension. Food was ok service is horrible. After the 3rd price adjustment, I gave up, Manager never apologized but gave credits for another visit. I immediately gave the freebies away because you could not pay me to go back there. Note to staff: get it together soon or you won't last in Montgomery County

Charlotte Choi

So much fun. There's something to do for everyone. Ping pong. Bowling. Pool. Video games. Their chicken is to DIE for

Beverly Boatwright

I love to go with a big group of people. The service is the best since the last time I've been there. They change up the menu and its. One cup per person ... I get it

Adrian McDivitt

Had my 6yo party here everyone was very nice and helpful. Kids loved the lights and bowling also enjoyed playing connect four while waiting their turn to bowl. I had a pink elephant that was pretty good. Will return for another funday sunday

May Cue

Great job and nice environment and great food and try the pink elephant adult drink

Sheina Worrell

Dont waste your time or money. Staff is very unprofessional and rude to customers and employees.

Jake Jacobs

Fun place in Montgomery Mall. Bowling alleys, and a nice bar area as well. Parking at the mall is usually no problem.

Pavan Mantha

Nice place to hang out... Pool/table tennis/dart any of the games is $25/hour.. Bowling is costly over here. It's $7 per shoe per person and $65 per hour a lane or $8 per person per game...

Katherine Goodman

Good food, good service, atmosphere is typical of a bowling alley. The lanes were really short and narrow and not a lot of space to practice true bowling form. The seating area is also small and makes it hard for large groups to sit and get up to bowl while having to step across everyone’s feet and legs. Plus side, the ball selection is unique! They have balls that weigh 4lbs with four finger holes for kids.

Majin Setay

Great place and ppl..

Tyler Curtis

Bowling is overpriced but cool atmosphere

Julie Barreto

Great place. I like the music, you can have fun

Tyrone Wallace

Waitress need some training badly.

Suzie Bergevin

We did a quick stop here..I really enjoyed the place and would come back for a longer period of time.

Chris B.

Bowling and pool was nice. Not a fan of the pizza.

KJ Andrews

Customer service here is poor, at the bar, front desk and with fixing my Modern Round machine. They didnt even add any extra time after it took them an extra 10 mins to fix the game. The worker slammed the equipment around like she was bothered, but the bartender made a decent drink.

Lilly Horvath

Nancy Teixeira

Cool spot!!

Jonathan Pierce

Had an awesome night here with my friends during a nyc trip. Bowling is always fun and brings out the kid in you, but this place has a fun nightclub kind of vibe. The only downside that I can comment on is the price of drinks. I guess that’s anywhere in nyc but it would be great if at least they had some happy hour specials or something.

Noob Apocalypse

Njeri Jarvis

Very expensive, but fun!

Clarissa Grau

If I could give them 0 stars I would , walked in at 1150 at night after a long night of work , they don’t close until 1 AM BUT DID LAST CALL AT 1115 now explain to me how that makes any sense , if you are going to deny service then shut your damn doors at the time you make last call don’t keep your doors open for guests to walk in and get denied service an hour and 45 minutes before you close which also states on your website very unprofessional!!!

Jamel Moore

I bowled 2 games before even being greeted to order. Even after speaking to two individuals, in which the food runner is high out of his damn mind. We eventually get seen, food comes out and then after some time the cashier is trying to get us off the lane because people are waiting. I'm not even mad. Just disappointed because I held them to a better standard. Also no oil on the lanes.

Catrinia Dailey

Great crew, and fun!

Paul-Gabriel Wiener

Nice place - if you're already at least half deaf. The lanes are nicely kept, the staff are friendly and helpful, there are billiards and ping pong for those not bowling, the attached cocktail bar is nice, the atmosphere is trendy but relaxed. The one thing is that as soon as you step in the door, you're blasted with a wall of sound. A pair of 30db earmuffs (intended for people operating heavy machinery or going to a gun range) brought the volume down from overwhelming to merely moderately painful. Don't expect to be able to talk to anyone more than 6 inches away. I'm pretty sure employees are going to suffer permanent hearing damage.


Nice atmosphere chill vibes and universal music playlist... bar... restaurant...and of course bowlingggg

Jackie Marzano-Lopez

The food was good but the service sucked. Say and ate before getting our lanes. There were many "dry" streaks when we were waiting for drinks to be filled or napkins and plates. The same service was received even after we got to our lanes.

Maria Carrillo

Lucky strike is always a fun place to go for bowling and drinks. Plus the movie theater is right next door.

Jon Green

Fabulous! They treated me like a king. Very energetic, good atmosphere, but a little young if you are older go somewhere else or bring your own party. Overall I liked it. I would go again. Be prepared to spend some real money. I mean really spend. If you have it go for it.

Peter Coutinho

Fun place for kids. Food was more expensive than expected. Service was good, if a bit harried.

Antonio Bogdan

Really enjoyed having dinner here and after playing a few games of pool. Would recommend for a friday night.

Einav Tsach

Built very well. Servers were nice and great experience.

Michael Smith

Anne Mytych

Service today at lunch was excruciatingly slow especially considering I was the only person in the dining room when I arrived.I arrived at 12:15 and it took until 12:30 to get my tea. And then when I ask for a to-go box and the check it took another 15 minutes to get that. Luckily the manager came in and saved the day. Otherwise this rating would be a 1. The food was tasty.

Priya Jads

Nice place

Kendra Hernandez

Matt Borron

Cool atmosphere but agree with other comments, staff is not great and service is really slow

Aaron Rakoczy

Awesome place to have a gathering. Great location.

Kim Iu

Lanes aren't kept up. Basically no oil on the lanes and I'm a lefty bowler. The balls are old and ragged. For a place that's supposed to be a high end bowling alley/sports bar, it seriously lacks any quality.

Jason Rosa

Josh and Japhet were incredible and very helpful. They made sure that my brother from out of town and his coworkers had a memorable night. I Love bowling and these guys set the standard pretty high!!

John Pfeiffer

Amazing spot for bowling fun

Vanessa Unzueta

My lane broke down 4 times. The manager made it right and did not charge us for the lane. However, we had to wait 30 minutes to even talk to them. We didn't even have a waiter to get drinks or food while we waited. Never coming here again.

Juan Castillo

Francisco was the most disgusting person ever. He needs customer service skills. He sucks at his job. I’m a manager I KNOW customer service, you don’t talk back to customers. It hurts me that such a great company like lucky strike would hire someone so bad & rude. Francisco please if you don’t like your job give it to someone that wants it.

Nick Miceli

Fun experience, good food and bar service. A few hiccups from the equipment but nothing out of the ordinary. They made it very easy to get a last minute reservation for a couple lanes through an emailed form and payment URL.

Ernest Gambrill

Elizabeth L. Watson

Had a Good Time

Christina Lyles

I was very impressed.

Jocelyn Howle

Love the interior vibe of this spot. It's a fun little hangout

Yasmin Clark

Nice ambiance, upscale setting and decent music. My date and I had a long wait due to a technical error with another customer so that was a negative. I was surprised that the place was busy on a Wednesday. Service was good. The menu is limited but I found the shrimp cups to be a really delicious, meatless option.

Rahim Noor

I will not be returning here. Very poor customer service. Very very rude staff. Talking amongst themselves and staring at my family and I. Decor was beautiful nice setup but the service here is horrible and staff has no training of how to handle a customers request. Don't go here if you want to enjoy your night.

NaQuan Peterson

Mike Dyke

We went to this bowling alley for a company trip. I live in Denver and we had a conference in Chicago. The lanes are well oiled, they had a very good selection and amount of balls, and the pool table felts we're well maintained. They also served some really good drinks and the food was pretty tasty as well. I will be stopping by again the next time I'm in town.


Marwah Zagzoug

Coworker held a farewell party here for me. It was fun. Great place for a casual evening of bowling

Fredy Guzman

Cool ambiance.

Kelliann McGarrigle

Lots of fun. Service could of been better took us along time to get drinks.

James Howard

It's a little expensive to bowl but the lanes are beautiful and it's also a lounge which is a nice place

Paul Marcano

Absolutely loved Lucky Strike. Got a free game of bowling during the lunch period. Great, dark atmosphere. Old books and memorabilia are a nice touch. Bowling lanes were subpar. They kept jamming or freezing up. The staff was very nice and friendly. Made sure we were taken care of but didn't bother us too much. The food was good. Too much for me to finish. I got the Margherita pizza. Beer selection was average. They even let me take an old book after I asked!

Stephen Tubb

Corentin Bedart

Johanna Valencia

This place was so much fun. My kids and I went with friends and they had a blast. Food, service, Music and atmosphere were great for the price. Will certainly go again.

Altan Erdemir

Real cool place for a grouo

Devon Henry

This a great place to have a group outing, the games are fun, the food is good, and the overall environment is just amazing!

Warren champ

Not to be negative, but would've given this experience a one star. However, the bowling staff and manager on duty ensured we had a great night despite the over two plus hours of waiting for a lane after being told several times that a lane is opening soon. Overall, had a great time. But didn't enjoy the extremely long wait.

Gregory Venditto

Good service. Pub food was OK... wings, sliders, but the chicken tenders had too much breading. pool tables and ping pong tables were high quality and lanes looked good.

Paola Paletti

Very very good cheese burger, cooked at perfection with marvelous potatoes. I would rate better than the famous Legendary Very nice and fast service. Nice music and people

Pure Extensions

I came in town last night from out of town! I visit this bowling alley around 12:40 with a group of people out celebrating a birthday! It was around 12 people. And one of my friends did not have proper ID to the security being because it was a tore up. My friend n the security spoke for 15 mins trying to get in the bowling alley. After a while my friend began to get upset with the security! I have my friend apologize to the security and he promised up if he go get his ID n come back before 130am he will still let him in. So my friend takes a Uber to go home Uber $30! To get his ID n come back! And the security did not let him! On top of that we had to pay to park and had already bought shoes for 12 people to bowl! Moral of the story the security was being racist and social profile my friend. Because he was a young black men he didn’t want to let him in from the jump like he wanted to start something with us just to see how mad he can make him and even after he apologize you accepted the apologize shook on it promise you will let him back in and turn around n shut the door on him! I even spoke with Drew the manager about it and he still just said no! I do not agree with this we did nothing we apologize for our wrong followed they rules n they still wanted to start trouble with us!

Truckers Life

Fun but too pricey

Lisa Singleton

Nice bowling alley. Expensive but Good Food. Bowling alley is dark with music. It's a hang out environment with a bar.

Paul Martin

Pizza was pathetic and so were most of the appetizers. Might as well been a suburban chain.

Vincent Stokes

Fun but way too expensive.

Adrienne Lorick

Nice location right near intrepid. A bit pricey but its New York! Our server Imani was amazing!

Reid Sanders

Extremely overpriced. You are charged separately for your alcohol and whatever mixer you choose. 2 drinks cost me 30 bucks drinking well vodka...........

Herbert Boehm

Junita tamang

Wayne C

The bowling pin machine is wrong. If you get a strike it doesn't register. The staff did not know how to fix it.

amadeo garcia

Good Place to have some Fun

shelly Taylor

John Blankenship

Alley wasn’t oiled. Beer price listed at $4 charged $5....come on man

Dr. H, Happy Smiles Dental

Cool ambiance and friendly staff. Had great time with kids. They loved it.

Christina Mitchell

The best time I've had in a long time.

Jovany Da-Bird

This place is big. I would have a party there. Their is pool games, bowling, ping pong and basketball.

Frances Lennix

Ivan is a good server. He came over as soon as we say down and he offered great menu ideas. The food doesn't disappoint

Eric Passos

Great place to go with friends or to bond with coworkers. This place others private areas for your team to enjoy bowling, pool and table tennis all while enjoying finger foods and alcohol.

Jenna Cryan

Awesome modern bowling alley. Can be pretty pricey but great for a night out with friends, especially if you go on Tuesdays for the bottomless bowling deals. I'm a huge fan of how they also have pool tables

Michael Kontos

It was fun it was clean and it was exciting

Wilton Mei

Nice place. Air conditioning was definitely not strong enough. Waitter took forever with drinks. The fried macaroni and cheese with mozerella was good.

Carlos Martins

Great place to hang out

Angela Ng

Nice atmosphere. Was here for a college alumni event so ping pong table space was reserved for us. Didn't check out the rest of the venue but would like to return to do so. Place seems really nice and you're not squished in with lots of people. Only really have gone to the movies and passed by Lucky Strike and FTW many times.

Tharindu Athauda

our waitress was nice, checked in constantly to make sure we were fine, food was sad l, we ordered the burger and meatloaf and it was disappointing. The burger patty was not seasoned and the meatloaf felt like it was pulled out of the refrigerator and heated. For 2 beers and this food cost over $40. I should have just gone to McDonalds cos their siracha signature burger is awesome. Oh before i forget one dude was braiding his hair in the kitchen! good job lucky strike management smdh

I just hosted a child’s birthday party at Lucky Strike Bethesda on Saturday. The food was excellent and the customer service was impeccable. From start to finish, all of the staff went above and beyond to make it a wonderful, memorable afternoon!!

Erin Prangley

Great staff! Fit us in on a busy rainy day. Awesome coverage if sports on satellite. Comfy couches to take a cat nap while kids bowl.

R De Campos

Bowling lane was malfunctioning. Server was over extended and we hardly saw her. Food was pretty good. We live across the street and would come here all the time if it was on point, but it's not very enticing.

Nadia Pry

Not bad but really expensive

Jeffrey Carlin

Expensive, but fun.

Eidys Borda

Execellent service waiter kitty great customer service

Karen Baker

It was a good experience. Lots of activities to entertain adults

Lou Goitia

Amazing food and drinks. Great music. Lots of fun especially if you go with a bunch of friends.


Literally did a staycation in the city and decided to go out here to eat and bowl on a Saturday night. Got there about 930 and The place was packed as expected but once we were seated nobody ever came to serve us and after 30 mins....nope. Not even a hello or sorry we're crazy. We even attempted to get drinks from the bar while we waited for our server. The bartender never acknowledged either of us. We walked out and just went to Ihop because everything else waa closed. The service or lack thereof was terrible and ruined the night. Never again....

Bari Ray

I love this place and I go on the regular, even take my son who loves all he variety of games from bowling, table tennis too arcade style shooting games! Oh most importantly the bowling amazing great space and atmosphere! Spend a few hours there easy!! (Great for all ages) kids before 7pm!

Tonia Jenkins

Nice place good bar bites and drinks.

sami E

Lanes are super tight not good for a big party more emphasis is based on the restaurant..

Moshe Aronov

Went on a Tuesday so it was a bit slow. But we had a great hostess and waitstaff person. Food is ok, lots fried stuff. Liquor was a bit watered down. But the place is cool and the people are super friendly. Will go back.

Shanan Bentley

Huge upscale entertainment complex in Manhattan. I was here for a corporate event. Very friendly staff.

John Finn

Manfry Martinez

My students and I really enjoyed this place. They were approximately twenty students and five staff. Despite the large group of clients, the service was very professional and effective. Their entertainment facilities are first class. They have a great variety of games, such as ping pong table, billiards, bowling and others. As for the food, even though the service was fast, the pizzas we ordered were not the best. However, I totally recommend this place for great group of people.

Jessica Scurlock

Fun place! Bartender James was the best! Our food came quickly to the bar and the Pink Elephants he fixed me were AMAZING! Would have been 5 stars but the party we were apart of service was less than stellar (got there later so we ordered from bar after seeing how bad their service was). They need more James in there!

Jordan Payne

Went for a work function. This place is ok, staff are friendly, bowling alleys are ok but a lot of the other activities aren't well maintained, including the pool tables, table tennis, and shuffle board tables. If you're just here for bowling then it's not a big deal. Huge space, feels a bit like a nightclub inside.

Midhun Joy

I went here last night and had some food. I should've noticed something fishy (no pun intended) when the food was served in less than five minutes. I was food poisoned and threw up several times. I want to give them zero stars, but I'm giving them one because the bowling lanes were good.

christopher albelo

Nice place spacious not expensive had a beautiful time

Rita Marley

Great little hangout spot for adults and kids. Had a nice time shooting pool while waiting for the boat ride at Pier 81

Linette Bennett

Good food, fun family and friend atmosphere. Wonderful and friendly staff very clean

Kai Wirges

Have been to Lucky Strike twice and loved it! It’s a great place to just chill with friends and have some fun. The food is delicious. Especially their pizza was good. The whole place has a chill and fun vibe which makes the actual bowling great. Overall if you’re looking to have a good time with friends or your family I’d totally recommend lucky strike.

louise deberry

I really enjoy this place. They have nice relaxing love seats, pool tables, bowling, and you can take in a movie.

Jesse Treptow

Fantastic looking place. The menu seemed reasonably priced and appeared to have many good options on it. I figure it would be a great place to go with friends. Upon arrival I noticed a sign saying that the pinsetters damage bowling balls. I am by no means a professional bowler, but I like to use my own bowling ball when I go out. Was looking forward to the Lunch and Bowl special but I am going to pass. I might be back with some friends down the road though. Looks like a good time.

Tor Flores

I love how they had 1930’s Turner’s movies playing during the day. It gave an old timey NYC feeling. I do feel like the ping pong table and pool should some how be packaged with the bowling games I stead of having to pay separately. We enjoyed killing some time after the Circle Line cruise, which is conveniently walking distance.

Gagan Bhardwaj

Had a great time with bowling, table tennis, and pool table. They have a decent food options. Located across the street from the water front. We went with the office folks as team party. Good service from the staff.

Sarah Watanabe

We had an intern event here and it was pretty fun. Our group was about 40 people and they were able to accommodate us. We had access to the billiard table as well as the lanes. The food/apps were fine and the staff was relatively friendly but not overly attentive. I'd consider coming back here for another event but it was a little pricey in my mind to come back on my own.

Karl Curran

Bowling, pool, ping pong, arcade, mini golf, great drink selection, delicious food. There's also a movie theater in the building. There's something for everyone. Had my bachelor party here and it was a great time. I'd recommend this place to anyone that lives here or is just visiting.

Serena Round

We went bowling to The Lucky Strike for my Husband's birthday last year and we had a blast. The prices are very affordable for being downtown, this place is huge and their equipment is very good, they have servers that will serve you drinks and food if you want to eat and drink while bowling, we had burgers and buffalo wings and we definitely had a great time.

So Ho

Probably one of the worst customer service experiences I've ever had. Fransisco needs to crack down on his servers

Daniel Onuoha

Pricey but good location, central to the city

Worst place ever! They ruined my a Christmas gift for 12 kids....This place is ridiculous! We went in and were told to add our name to the waitlist, they said it would be around 1-2 hours so we decided to wait around the mall after 2 hours I went back to check and they told me I had to wait an other hour minimum, at this point the kids just wanted to leave so we did and I didn’t get the “Ready” text message until 10:40pm!!!! 5 Hours Later!!!....The whole time I could have made and appointment but was told by the employee that answered the phone call a month before that on that day was not possible.....Called to speak to the manager and never received a call back......TERRIBLE! TERRIBLE! Customer service and overall experience.....First and last time!.....They need to retrain their staff.

Sophie Lembo

Very bad customer service. Nobody is ever around when you need them and the people who are around are not helpful at all. Great place - horrible staff.


Nice stop for a bite after sightseeing in NYC

C. Gerard

Eliajah and Juan were awesome. Overall Service was mediocre. Food was good. I’m old so maybe score biased.

Felipe Cabello

Amaizing place to have fun with friends and family, play games, have drink and eat.

Jennelle Taylor

Great all the way around

Joi ful

Great place 2 have after work fun. we have had our office company holiday parties there for the past 2 years.

Bisou H

Nice place to hangout with coworkers...good bar food.

Henry Tang

Not bad, we held our private event there. Venue is well equipped, loads of activities (bowling, pool, table tennis). Just wish the food could be better...

Bill Tobin

Not for semi-serious bowlers. Lanes hadn't been oiled for 5 days & manager wouldn't let mechanic oil the lanes for us. Paid for 2 hrs. but spent about 1/2 hour trying to get pin resets, in once case taking 4 trips back and forth across full length of facility (we were on the last lanes, #11 and 12) to front desk, wait in line, to get a full rack (they wouldn't let me operate the control pedestal notwithstanding that I was very familiar with how to operate it). That's a 25% loss of paid time spent trying to get full racks, leaving only 1.5 hrs. for "bowling" for 8 people. Front desk personnel incompetent; kept promising pin resets/full racks but kept having to repeatedly re-request the same resets. They also tried to charge me for my own bowling shoes that I brought, saying "it's a rule". Not at any lanes I've ever bowled! Although not the staff's fault, uncontrolled kids on next lanes kept running in front of us on the approach as we were trying to bowl, pushing ball ramps into our lanes, etc. This place might be fun for kids in small parties, but definitely not for adults. It's a shame, because it has great ambiance for hanging out/socializing. Nightmarish experience. Never again.

candis ridley

This place food is just ok drinks are strong but not tasty and bowling lanes are small.

Patricia Ishmael

Had an extreme ball here with the family... My son's birthday party was here and the staff laid everything out and made our visit seamless. Will definitely be visiting again!

Cooper Breen

Love Ñ

Best cauliflower pizza in Chicago. My sister and I love the place. The attention is the best and Francisco who is the manager really care about the service.

Sue F

Ok, if you like bowling

Frederick Moutran

Took 20 mins for a waiter to come to our table, waited a minimum of 30 mins for the food (not busy here), been waiting for the check for 40 mins.

Stephen M.

This was an excellent place for our companies after the holiday celebration. The only down side, I didn't have enough time to try everything. Enjoyed the dart contest, bowling, the game room with the air hockey tables and alien invasion were also great. The hidden gem that a lot of people don't know about was the miniature golf course and a the tag lounge behind the big bar, definitely a must on my next visit. The finger foods were nice, giant cheese, beef and shrimp skewers. Of course the drinks were very good. The staff was extremely polite, helpful and very accommodating even with our large group, well over 150 ppl and it never felt rushed.

Christina Ramirez

Love this locations so many things to do near by and awesome customer service! My lane was having issues so they gave my 2 free games which was awesome.

christopher hardemon

Was meet with attentive staff upon entering had vodka and orange juice with cubano sandwich Also tried andoullie stuffed mushrooms . Only downsize was no eating utensils set out

Zac Tharp

Great place. The manager Mary hendrix is awesome!

Ivan Hernandez

Great time and the service was perfect.

Yossi Berkowitz

This is a great place, there are ping pong tables pool tables and bowling all in one place, and very good prices

Stefa Starr

Have been to several events here from company gatherings to birthday parties! Everytime we have a great experience from staff and management. Great drinks, fun games, great place to make memories! Will definitely recommend!

Alberto V.G.C.P

Great bowling alley

Lauren Bittner

Had a great office party here with bowling, good apps and cocktails.

Swing My Sword

Very likely the best bowling alley I have ever been to. When the food is good, all you have to do is keep everything else in order.

Marisha Humphries

Bowling and pool tables in a nice atmosphere except it's a little too dark. They played a nice variety of music. But if you don't eat meat, good luck trying to find something besides a salad. I was able to get the nachos without the pork but they still charged me full price with no extra veggies or guacamole. Will return but will eat somewhere else first.

Tor Flores

I love how they had 1930’s Turner’s movies playing during the day. It gave an old timey NYC feeling. I do feel like the ping pong table and pool should some how be packaged with the bowling games I stead of having to pay separately. We enjoyed killing some time after the Circle Line cruise, which is conveniently walking distance.

Chris Chen

Lanes were poorly maintained. Don't think of bowling good score just enjoy your night.

Jose Perez

Food was amazing ... if you're looking for a couple hrs of fun with family or friends this is the place to be ... bowling, pool and modern shooting was fun i recommend to try the BlackBerry smule drink ....

Juan Solis

A. Foy

I came on Presidents’ Day with a group of friends. It was extremely crowded and had we known we would have made a reservation online ( reservations can’t be made over the phone) we had to wait for a lane which we were quoted an hour but turned out to be only 25 minutes. The guy running the bowling counter (Phineas) very professional and accommodating. Our server (Trey) was polite and quick with our drinks. Refills did take a long time. One suggestion I would have is to get more staff, for such a busy place only having 3 staff members Running around is insane. We did have an issue with the lane being stuck and Phineas fixed it in a matter of minutes and extended our time.Luckily we had a good experience but it could have easily gone south if your staff wasn’t on point.

Uros Jankovic

Plenty of space and a lot of pool tables, bowling lanes, ping-pong tables.. there is never a wait. You can just come in, get you stuff and start having fun. Decent pub food, but the draft selection could be better. Although, they have enough stuff in bottles so there is something for everyone.

Jane Travel queen

Has large bar and dining area with great food


Had fun here, great atmosphere!

Frank L

Great atmosphere and the DJ knows how to keep the party going.Like Rick Flair says " All Night Long"! Lanes are nice and the staff are very friendly.

Mike Kennedy

Nikkia Crews

Food was okay drinks were great. I had the pink elephant which was delicious. The game kept getting interrupted due to the screen freezing. Overall good experience

Marcus Cooper

This is the ultimate and bowling alleys

Yoly Keys

I came here to see the Mayweather fight and a Halloween bash a few years ago. There’s a movie theater downstairs - billiards, bowling and the bars are upstairs. If you don’t feel like going to Kings in Rosemont then this is the place to be. The wings are good

Jessal Davis

This place was really nice and clean, lots of space and it’s just relaxing to be honest... this is one of the best bowling allies I’ve been to in years!

Gagan Bhardwaj

Had a great time with bowling, table tennis, and pool table. They have a decent food options. Located across the street from the water front. We went with the office folks as team party. Good service from the staff.

Krista Calixte

I was never one to enjoy bowling but being at this place really put me in the mood. Definitely a place I will visiting on my next trip.

Pat Taylor

Fun. Bowling alley for groups

Granger Marsden

Very cool environment downtown. Chic bowling alley with amazing food, plenty of drink options and plenty to do. Also a significant amount of space, it was way more open than I expected. They have bowling, darts, pool, and table tennis. The downside is that some of the activities can be quite pricey, it was $25 per hour for table tennis! But, if you're willing to spend this can be a really fun place to go.

Mimi Escobar

James Willett

John G.

Pool shark! Ping pong master! Bowling is fun. We lit with drink back to back!

Nara Baker

I just want to say the staff was wonderful and very helpful for my birthday party this past Sunday. Thank you so much for making my day great!! My entire party had a very good time.

sarah ruben

If I could I wouldn’t even give this place a star. It was my first time going there. When the greeter asked if we wanted to sit at the bar or booth and I said booth, she rolled her eyes. When we were seated, no one ever came by to serve us, as I watched a bunch of servers walk by and even set tables next to ours. We waited at least 10-15 min before we gave up and left. If you’re just here to eat, I don’t recommend it. They pay more attention to those bowling and at the bar.

Joseph Jorjoliani

Nice bowling spot. Great staff and decent prices.

Alex H

Good Lanes, freindly staff, good food, music and atmosphere, lots of things to do.

charles miro

Terrible..6 open lanes and they didnt let us bowl because they wanted us to be bunched up with other groups!!

Thomas Williams

I had a great time with my wife.........

Jorge Picado

First time at this place... definitely coming back soon. The salad and the cannoli dip were tasty.

Ana O.

I love this place! Bowling is amazing

Paul Kozyra

I loved the space, great drinks, and great customer service. We'll be back for sure.

Roadney Louis

Some of the worst food I've ever seen. Uncared for equipment and lazy staff. The only thing lucky about this place is how it hasn't closed down.

Miriam Mendoza

I’m only giving it two stars the food was great except when my family and I started bowling everything was going good until half an hour and the bowling lane starts messing up we wanted to leave after half an hour of waiting for them to solve the problem. We spoke to manager Francisco and he said to meet him at the door he would give us bowling passes well we were waiting at the door for about 15 minutes he never came up ! We had to talk to another manager who had no clue what was going on. The experience was horrible poor management! Never going back

Tali Lyani

It is really kid friendly and fun for adults

Maria Jose Santos

Good price and craic for a bowling drinking night with the girls! Definitely give it a try!

Eric Rivera

Loved it, drinks are a lil pricey but it is Manhattan.

Sandra Gogins

I really had a great time with my bosses and co-workers

Justice Jupiter

I think they also have mini golf but I didn't play. Overall a very awesome experience! Pizza was cheesey and fresh. I love pizza

josh peralta

This place is a good time, especially for groups. It has the vibe and music of a club. Waiters come to your table for drinks and food. DJ was playing hip-hop while I was there. Other than the bowling section, there's also a small arcade section and pool tables. Lots of TVs that were playing a few different games. A little more expensive than a normal bowling alley, but its worth the extra money.

Coby Lessig

Ignore the negative reviews, this place is great! The food, and happy hour drink specials are some of the best around. I would definitely recommend

Charissa Anaya

Fun place to take the family

Stefa La Jefa

Great place to get together with friends, have a birthday party, or after work event! Everytime I've been there its loads of fun, with choices between bowling, playing pool, or dancing to the DJ.

Eliseo Perez

Really awesome place to just hang out...drink and have a great time! Highly recommend!!

Andy Wang

The bowling is fun and the food is suprisingly good for a bowling alley

Chin Leung

Really nice ambience and great staff!

Andrew Hall

Cesar Zavaleta

Worst service ever. The worst part of it the manager didn't do anything. I'm sorry I don't understand why this place is a 5 star. It very nice concept and environment but there no one to serve us. Why it took a very long time get simple beers? We not ordering mix drinks and the bar was not busy.. the worst of all they control the games. We couldn't finish the 2nd games he have to actually pay more to finish a game. That not right. They need to let us play the games until when are finish than charge us how long it took. I understand Friday night is $65 hr but for really let us control the games. Charge us when we are finish.

Cody Mccutcheon

Great night with the Bruderer team. Got to spend some quality time with the guys from Brazil and Switzerland!

Tony DeZanto

It's located in a far away land... The Weeest Side Highway. No trains run there, the bus takes a while and walking through the crowds is like a game of frogger. But once there, Fun times. Staff is friendly. Drinks are good. Music is pumping. And the competition gets heated. Good luck

Zayade Hashmi

Not very organized. Bowling balls were all over the place. The score keeping system is pretty bad as well.

Lol Gang

Atmosphere is amazing as well as the Food and Drinks Professional establishment loved the pool tables

Abiye N. Tessema

What makes this place special is it’s commitment to encourage people to read. There are various books and you can even take one after speaking with the management. I really liked it and I’ll come back again and again.

brian murray

Eat at bar. Great service. Food was excellent

Anna Nieto

My spot since arrived to NYC all the staff are professionals. Juan Carlos (bartender), Luis (Manager), Jacob and everybody are amazing. I highly recommend the salad (with chicken goat cheese and almonds), the steak au povre is anazing and the burguer is SUPREME! Gotta try the drinks aswell, a must!!

Denise Powers

Awesome! Very friendly staff! Need to inform all of promos. Bartender had no clue what car give away was!

Dave Conord

Good drinks, fun place. Skip the food.

Jenna Padilla

They manager Allen stated that he couldn’t assist us with the parking, here’s it situation the Ogden garage was out of stickers for validation us not knowing there’s isn’t any stickers after 30 mins of festivities we end moving our car only having to pay 22 dollars for 58 mins after trying to get assistance for parking .... Allen didn’t seem to care and just gave us a card instead of complimentary us any way, if we would have known there was no stickers for validation we woulda Neva parked there, there wasn’t no signs nor notification outside in the parking lot staying there was no stickers ...... we woulda took a complimentary drink appetizer game or something to show good nature but nothing, the skinny margaritas was delish, the philly cheese steak egg rolls was dry and less tasteful over cooked and salty .....

Erika Herrera

Very clean and neat establishment. This is a great bowling place for groups, not really a couple. The couches give it a lounge feel and their service was great. From 42nd train station it's a good 15-20 min walk.

Wade Trefethen

I didn't bowl. Was there for an event. This place is big, clean and fun.

George O'krepkie

The bestest bowling in Manhattan

Sarah Watanabe

We had an intern event here and it was pretty fun. Our group was about 40 people and they were able to accommodate us. We had access to the billiard table as well as the lanes. The food/apps were fine and the staff was relatively friendly but not overly attentive. I'd consider coming back here for another event but it was a little pricey in my mind to come back on my own.


Awesome bowling alley in Manhattan

Tiffany Campbell

The food is good, music's nice

carlos brito

Pizza is ok overall place looks great. Also has nice staff.

Thomas Cheung

It great time for fun bowling

Tonshia Luster

Nauman Funyas

Marcel Hoskins

The managers are amazing and the staff is hard working. Johnathan is a excellent server!

Aaron Geerlings

Booked and attended a work event here. Excellent service though the entire process. I holy recommend if you want a great place for a bowling event. Staff were excellent food was above average for a bowling venue.

Kareema B

I am in town to visit with my sister for my kid's spring break. We are staying at The Embassy Suites and decide to stop in for food. The only reason this place gets any stars is because of Lupe the excellent head manager for the night. My server Shauna was great. Franco who stopped me at the door because of my popcorn had the WORST customer service I ever experienced. Just flat out rude. Definitely reporting him to corporate.
