Sheila Kincaid

Fun family night. Friendly people in snack bar and bar. Derrick was awesome.

Shaun Dunlap

Very nice

Felipe OMAR

Greatest Customer Service!!! You must go here! We were scheduled for a Christmas party and our company cancelled without telling us. Management felt bad and gave our family a couple free games. This is true American hospitality! - We had a blast, and will go back.

Thomas Murdock

Nice bowling alley

Jan Maci

This is a clean, fun, no smoking place. Reasonably priced, it has a bar, pro-shop, and made-to-order food counter.

Brenda Linzie

Very awesome staff

Child'of Christ

It's ok, I just think the food prices could be a little bit better. I think that people would play more if they did.

Very clean/fun atmosphere my family and I came here Wednesday to bowl a few games got some food from the snack bar and the guy in the snack bar was extremely nice very well mannered he was taking care of a group that maybe had hearing disabilities and i tell you what the guy was so patient as he was dealing with them god bless him I’d definitely hire that guy if he needed a job . Thanks Hindel bowl

Brandon Signorino

No-frills bowling alley, featuring real wood lanes and old-school scoring system. As dated as the place is, it is a particularly pleasant spot to go bowling, especially for an avid bowler such as myself.

Truly Blessed

Two games plus shoe rental for $9..we had fun and the bathroom was nice and clean.

Toke Obasi Bey

I love this place and the wood floors. They just need to upgrade their computer systems. 1995 was a long time ago, plus they only take cash. Other than that great people and great times.

Brittany j

no problems enjoyed being out with my kids cheap rate on Wednesday’s check out the site! I will be back.

Stephen Macgregor

Garry McLamb

The lanes don't work, and the bowling balls get jammed. Then your car is not safe in the parking lot. 2 cars got broken into and none of there cameras got it. It was parked in front of the main entrance.

Leigh Browning

Had lots of fun

Andrew_22 Miller

Great overall experience!!!! Very low pricing and great for friends and family!!!!

Laura Alvies Smith

The guy at the desk definitely seemed overwhelmed. Took a while to get shoes and even longer to switch shoes for different size. They won't let you use the little ramp assist unless you are truly handicapped. We had to switch lanes half way through just to get bumpers. Something to consider if you have little ones

Pat Powers

Affordable, clean and fun

kyle wineinger

Lanes are awesome and the staff is always helpful. We come for our family reunion kick off every year.

Marcellina Hampton

It is expensive to bowl or get food

I've been going there for years off and on. Good place for family and friends to go. They have bowling leagues also. We just had a family night there with my nephew before he went back to Paris.

James Bailey

My Daughters Birthday had a great time

Bryan Luster

Bowled here all my life. Needs some updates but all in all a great place to bowl.


It's a humble place

Entertainment TV

I don't really like or care for this bowling alley. Compared to Pin Chasers, by TPA in Tampa, FL this bowling alley is too quiet, dark and dirty. I suggest going to EXPO BOWLING on South Emerson, instead.

Crystal Bufford

Not easy handicapp accessible, smelled bad, dark and dingy

Rob Collier

The staff was friendly and the lanes were nice. I prefer a longer approach but overall it is a nice alley.

Ben Huston

Clean and friendly. $2 per game was awesome.

Tracy Jackson

It was great I won 3 straight

Heather Cortez

Nice place to go with the family!

Clayton Crumell

The bowling alley charged us for extra games, even though their system malfunctioned and did not turn off our lanes when it was supposed to (the clerk admitted it)!

Aaron Frith

Greatest Customer Service!!! You must go here! We were scheduled for a Christmas party and our company cancelled without telling us. Management felt bad and gave our family a couple free games. This is true American hospitality! - We had a blast, and will go back.

rynasia johnson

My very first time being at this bowling alley tonight and I must say I’ve had the most fun I’ve ever had the staff was very friendly from front desk to the bar and snack bar,drink prices are reasonable snack bar prices are a bit expensive but well worth every penny the guy working tonight was very friendly and asked me if I wanted to make my wings I ordered into a meal and I tried it they were good I will most definitely be back with my family next weekend they’re from New Jersey I’m sure they will love this place thanks ❤️

james cotham

Great place to get away and relieve stress

Michele Brown

I bowled their on Saturday nights it's ok they still have hard wood floors make the oil pattern a little different to me.

Lisa Tackett

Been bowling here since I was 8 and I love this house but the man they have in the snack bar is slow and rude. Now matter what you order it is always come back in 10min. He won't even give you your drinks when you order. When you come back in the 10 minutes the food is still not done or it is cold. On multiple occasions the man at the snack bar is socializing and not doing his job.

James Young

great manager

Jokez Plays

Great af fried pickles. Bowling hurts my wrists but yknow.

Madeleine Goudreau

Definitely our go to for bowling now!

Tim Batts

Lanes aren't oiled, they really don't care if you're concerned about the oil. Worst bowling alley I've been to. Don't come here if you're not in a league, or else you'll be placed on a lane that's terrible.

B.R Walt

Zachary Sprout

Very shady would not go again

Courtney Modisette

Michael Redd

You will love this clash of the skylanders with ponies bowling ball- Now on Sale- Free Shipping.

shawn wagner

Quiet in the early afternoon. They only have 1 lane with bumpers for inexperienced bowlers. The food is low quality. We had A Groupon for two hours and they cut our lane off 10 minutes early. They had an issue with the lane and didn't stop our time while they fixed it. We Would still go back with a Groupon but with the knowledge of what to expect.

rich shaw

Went to a Birthday party there. Much fun, nice lanes, clean place.

Michael Ian Stong

You can bowl here for super cheap, at about $3 for 1 game. I don't think you can find that good of a deal anywhere else. And the lanes are in good shape. Great place to go if you want to have fun on a budget.

M love

U went for a birthday party, it was fun but one of the lanes kept messing we had to switch

dmeece01 .

Old school lanes. Decent fried foods. Surprisingly they had top shelf alcohol such as Grey Goose Vodka. Had a great time and really reasonable process. Will definitely be back.

Brian Cornn

I've been bowling here since I was 7. I'm now 26. I have been a league bowler continuously for 5-6 years now and I don't plan on going anywhere else. You want a real authentic bowling experience? You need to come visit Hindel. Real wood lanes for the perfect and natural bowling experience.

Pat Sites

Had a really good time at my grand son's birthday party. Perfect place for family time.

LaToya Norris

We miss the blonde worker.

Marc Earnest

Benita Dycus

Great Service, Great for Parties or Family nights. Food and a Bar

Natural Selection

I came and bowled Sunday night and there was a pin in the gutters and we called the front desk and they sent a worker and he just stared at the pin and when we asked him if he is getting it he looked at us and he said “ oh I’m not getting that pin” and never went to go get it for us.

Joshua Dream

This place is very clean very family-oriented they take care of you behind the counter if you have any problems or issues they have a lane attendant to help you through if you have kids they have bumper rails that will keep your kids excited because they will keep the ball from falling in the gutter it's a good place to entertain a group to have fun or if you're really into bowling you can be a lead molar nice down-to-earth spot and the Pro Shop is a nice place to get balls shoes bags whatever you need

Jeana Vossler

PriceAction Hank

It's a bowling alley. Nothing special here. Has a lil bar and an equally small arcade.

London Dixon

Great work staff

Bree Sie

Was out with my fiance having a GREAT time. He originally bought ten games, which were awesome! Then he went to buy 6 more. The manager for the shift (Tracy) said "how many games have you played now, like 40?" He was very rude. You think you'd be happy people are spending their money there... Then I was drinking a beer at the score station on my lane, and He freaked out! Was raising his voice saying you can't drink down there. I had no idea there are no signs saying that. All the other staff was friendly and kind, answered all my questions politely. But people like Mr Tracy ruin the evening... sadly I will not return to this bowling alley, UNTIL there is better service. Hope the main managers can fix this problem I would love to come back again.


Fun,,, food,,,, drinks

richard chapple

kenneth beckwith
