Tuesday bowling is always a good time, and $.97 games are a steal. Wes is always helpful and respectful too.

SunGirl Sunday

The Long Island Iced Tea is really good here! Tuesday night bowling special is awesome!

jennifer robinson

The slick looking dude that thinks he's in charge is Rude and Arrogant! I could make a pot roast in the amount of time it takes to get anything from the concession stand and the bar is dirty. I think that about sums up the awful experience! Make the drive to Indy for a much better experience!!!

Chris Helou

You pay per person per game, which is frustrating. They do have a bar, which is awesome. They also have an arcade, but most games don't work

Loved bowling here. Everything is good and nice about this place. A lot of tables to sit if you are in a group. Have pool tables and games too. Only think I did not like was there is hardly any good food items if you want to eat there and service at bar is very slow. The toilets were not managed, no toilet papers in any of them and water from taps was burning hot, you cant wash hands directly under tap. I even told the staff about it so that accidently any kid doesnt burn their hands.The bowling part was good, staff at counter was friendly and helpful.

The bowling alley is great in many ways.. It's well kept inside. The outside needs cleaned up with all the cigarettes butts every where, but overall the build seems well kept. They have a bar and a snack counter. Kids have the arcade games center. The jukebox is expensive. Most songs cost 50 cents to play. The food is typical with burgers and French fries, etc. Some of the food runs on the high end. It's a fun atmosphere and all ages can enjoy

Stephanie Roy

Went for my birthday. Bowlong lanes were great but dont bother playing pool! Tables are filthy and have stuff stuck all over them. Pool cues and balls are old and damaged. Tables lean. It was impossible to even hit the cue ball into the other balls. All the balls rolled to one corner. Was very disappointed.

Jackson Linke

I went here with my friends recently. We thought it would be fun to try the candy claw machine. To our surprise we won a little, but when we went to reach down and get the candy we saw something a little odd. There seemed to be a wooden box collecting ALL the candy. So any child who spent that 50 cents his Mom or Dad gave him so he could go try to win would be very disappointed to know that he or she couldn't win. When I took this up with someone at the front desk they proceeded to tell me that it is a "trap door system" and they get them straight from the factory and don't tamper with them. I was very disappointed not because I didn't get any of the candy I won, but because a little boy or girl went home disappointed that he or she couldn't get that candy because someone put a box to collect the candy for themselves and have some other parents pay for it for you.

Corey Plunkett

Cub scout event!!!

American Arms Gun Shop

Prices of bowling have gone up about 4 times in the last 4 years, but they have made a lot of improvements. It's a good place to blow some steam off and throw some balls as some pins or roll them whichever one you choose to do!

Kira Gartell

Newly remodeled for a better atmosphere.

Bart Myers

Andrew Baugh

Loud, you have to yell to talk. The staff weren't friendly and seemed uninterested in their job. The premises was dirty, food and drinks spilled everywhere and cigarette butts all over the ground upon walking in. Too bad it's the only bowling place in town.

Ethan Hunter

Great local place going to miss it when it closes on July 15th.. have had a lot of fun!!

Debra Earl

Way to expensive!!!

Mike Parker

I had a good ok time. And now they have this thing called 50 cent Tuesday nights. You pay for shoes and each game is only 50 cents.

Pavel Anaschenko

Closing at 1.a.m., which is a bit early on Friday and Saturday. Otherwise it is a good place.

Chip Mattis

This is a good place. Being new to town we wanted to try bowling. The prices seem a little high compared to what we were used to but not outrageous. The place uses fairly new technology for their screens and player interaction. the place was well lighted and clean and they offered several other things like pool, food, etc. I recommend the place.

victor ash

Nice bowling lanes!

Bob Pescatore

Nice, clean, and fun place to bowl

Bethany Huss

32 Basic bowling lanes; we came on a Saturday and there was no wait. Family had a great time. Would recommend. However, bathrooms were somewhat crude, specifically the stall doors. They locked but the rod went into the wall. No big deal.

Mark Hodges

Great little modern bowling alley, bring your rosin though that lanes are sort of sticky.

christopher toon

Always fun times. Great place for birthday parties too

Jeffery Jennings

Nice new renovations and new bowling balls, however they only charged $2.50 for bowling, but you MUST pay for shoes which are $$$.

James Kidd

I love this place... Friendly knowledgeable staff good food drinks great way to spend an evening with family and friends.

Priyanka Patil

Along with bowling lanes it has some games for kids too, like car racing , etc


Had a blast

Troy Maynard

Decently maintained bowling alley with a solid grill and cafe. Equipment seems up to date and the entire place is clean. Staff are usually friendly though not always fast. Overall, you can get a good amount of entertainment for your buck.

Beverly Day

Very nice place to go

Rebecca stidd

It took 10 minutes for someone to notice my friend and I at the front desk the past few times we went. One time we went and waited for 15 then left and went somewhere else. This time we were overcharged, and the staff was rude. I typically wait until I have 3 bad experiences in a row before I write a review, and the past 3 times have been awful.

Jennifer Anderson

Bowling is so much fun and the staff at Classic Lanes is great. Ron the bartender is always friendly and funny.

Matt Studebaker

Best bowling alley in Bloomington! Great food, great specials during the week for games and beer too!

Staff may not always be in the best mood, but the bowling is always fun, they have really upgraded their systems to make it more entertaining between turns.

Joshua Smith

Tried 3 times to go bowling with my kids, each time we were turned away because it was a different leagues night and would be open to the public till 8... I got kids that need to go to bed to go to school can’t stay that late

We were there for a company event of my mother inlaws and had a great time bowling. They have very interactive bowling kiosks and the bumpers go up and down for the people who need them. The pizza wasn't the best pizza in the world but it was a bowling ally.

Lori Sandy

Very nice place. My daughter had so much fun!

Shea Collins

Always a winner... Always fun...

Sami Venable

Fun for everyone. Not many food options and the food is awful quality.

Delicious nacho cheese. Artful double cheeseburgers, props to the cook. Fun animations on the scoring tv. Had an hour wait, but plenty to do with food, arcade, pool, and people watching.

Rick Sanchez

Fun place and nice people

Daniel Chang

I went there several times before. Classic Bowling Lanes offers some cheap deals on Monday and Thursday. You can play bowling all night for around $8-11. They serve icy cold beer and other drinks so you should definitely get some and have fun!

Tony Wolfe

As good as bowling gets

Kristy Kallback-Rose

Bowling, pool, arcade, pinball. Good family place.

Amy Wilkerson

Call before going to make sure there isnt a league so you can have a lane.

Anne Coker

Great fun!

Caleb Douglas

Good place to bowl since renovations. However, league nights tend to be on nights with deals to only allow small amounts of people to get deals. If you wait till 11pm though, you should have no problem getting in.

jessica feeney

Cheap. Love Bartender Ron. He's the best!

Jeff Rayzor

Great place to Bowl

Sarah Swaagman

Couch Magician

They're the best!

Lance McGee

Fun atmosphere! Had a great time and will definitely be back!!

Brittany Manion

This bowling alley is pretty awesome. There’s plenty to do aside from bowling. There’s pool tables, air hockey, a few arcade games, concession stand, a fully stocked bar, plus updated bowling screens. I’ve been here a few times and I always have a blast. The prices are pretty reasonable and the staff is friendly. I’ve been here on a date night with my husband and I’ve also been here for some family fun. There’s something for everybody! I’d definitely recommend this place to friends and family.

kaeden wolf

We played for two games of bowling added a tip only to find out we could not order food. We stayed hangry and it made our bowling experience awful. Can't order food until after 5 pm...

Tan cake

Only place to bowl in Bloomington. The lanes are well kept and the staff is usually friendly. There's also a good quality Kiss pinball machine

Lisa Hostetler

It's close to where I live and it's fun

Jessica Huhnke

Absolutely fantastic bowling alley with games for a good price. Got to Bloomington a way too early before a Monday night basketball game and decided to come here to kill some time. Games were $2.25 and we had the place pretty much to ourselves. Alley has fun bowling screens that let you take a selfie and has dancing characters if you roll a strike/spare. Also have nice pool tables and arcade games.

Darrell Frazier

Good family fun. Helpful staff. A little over priced.

Joe Algood

For a Bowling alley very clean fun place to hang out

Amber Mayi7uuiuuuik

Megan Saylor

When we arrived to bowl at 11pm the front doors were locked, even though when we looked up the hours it said open until 1am every day, which was also posted on the door. Someone let us in under the condition that we were only allowed to bowl one game and the bar was closing and the concession was already closed. We got in, bought drinks, spent about 70 dollars total between all of us for shoes, lanes and drinks for about an hour of fun. Towards the end of our first game I asked if we could go ahead and buy one more game, promising we'd be out by 1, we just wanted to finish our drinks while we bowled, but the guy at the register refused. I will say the bartender was very courteous, decided to stay open a little bit longer for our friends to buy drinks, then checked on us to make sure we didn't need anything else before he closed up. But the guy running the register was basically just waiting for us to leave from the moment we got into the alley. I understand summer can be slow for business in Bloomington, but stay true to your hours for paying customers please.

Charm Hole

Got a Turkey and beat all my coworkers: a very memorable night!!

Tilghman Kazmierowicz

Great location, near both the roller rink and Frisbee golf course

Best place to bowl in Bloomington, but needs some remodeling.

Stephen Vilardo

The Wednesday night bartender is the best!!!

Ian Yarbrough

It would be super great if they didn't stack random families into your lane when the rest of the bowling alley is wide open. Otherwise, good place.

Michael Dove Jr.

Fun and busy atmosphere! Definitely didn't feel empty like some bowling alleys do. Lanes and balls are in good conditions and not a long wait time to get in. Plenty of parking as well. Definitely a great bowling alley.

Kyle Beaman

Getting ready to start again after a 2 year absence.

Joshua Jones

Wonderful atmosphere and strong drinks. Bonus: you can set bumpers individually for each individual so theres no pressure on the whole group to pick

Hunter Curry

Loved this place. One of the best bowling alleys I've been to

They closed the bar/food area earlier than the bowling alley. Late night(not even that late, it was just about 10pm) bowling deserves snacks and drinks, other than vending machines
