REVIEWS OF Palos Lanes Bowling Center IN Indiana

Marwan Ahmed

We had a great time with the family, it’s also always nice to spend time with family

Adam Chorak

Facility is clean and in good shape. Unfortunately there is online advertising for a “wild Wednesday’s” unlimited bowling from 9:30-12:30, and the staff told us they closed at 11:00. They cut off all games in the facility at that time. That’s an hour and a half of bowling that we didn’t receive.

Zahid Shaikh

I had great time with my extended family during my US visit

A very clean bowling alley. Even after a children's party the bathroom was clean. The staff is very friendly and kind. There is a full bar and they have a small grill with food. Of course the bowling is great!

Very clean! Friendly employees! Reliable equipment.


Jasmine Lopez

Took family out to bowl and they stopped us playing in the middle of our game.. Only because some of the kids didn’t have bowling shoes.. we were the only family Hispanic and black there.. but another group of family white were doing the same and their game wasn’t stopped.. Racistism at its finest

Just don't go there If I could leave negative 5 stars I would.”

Joylynn Mitchell

Very rude management. Overcharged us. The facility itself is very nice. But management ruined the experience for my family and I. They wouldn't let us play a third game eventhough the bowling alley had another 45 minutes before closing. However they still charged us for a game we never played.

Susan Wojtysiak

Love bowling, I'm there 3 days a week. Lots of different leagues. Days when bowling is only $2.00 a game. Snack bar open different hours. Owner is a real sweetheart.

Great alley that still has a nice old school feel.

marty racz

Great time with kids

Rene Hernandez

Inexpensive party packages and especially because they charge per lane.

Jan Potasnik

It great place plus food is good.

Jeffrey OConnell

Wow! Not modern nor dated. Affordable bowling with automatic scoring and graphics when you get a strike or spare. There is video gaming and an old fashioned lounge. Bathrooms were modern and clean . The bartender was friendly , drinks were inexpensive, and service was quick. I liked the bartender because he was friendly and the manager?was also smiling. They made you feel welcome and this was evidenced by the the teens bowling on a Saturday night and an 89 year old lady on the next lane. I am personally going to go here more often because the bowling alley doesn't give off that seedy feeling that drives you away. Kudos!

Kate Melvin

We had our daughter's 5th birthday partt here - everything was so well taken care of and we loved it!

Sue Novotny

The bartender is great! Sweet friendly gentleman. But they really need them to do something about their air conditioning at night. Even before we got these extreme high temps, it was always starting to feel humid after 7pm, and by the time we get to our 3rd game, my whole team is so uncomfortable and sweaty. I just throw the ball down the lane without caring so we can just get out of there. They seem to be remodeling to expand & upgrade their bar area, but if they don't get their ac working properly, I don't see how people would want to stay after their done bowling.

Pretty good time


Clean seats and lane area and place all together but a very unfriendly staff. Tried small talking with one of them but they weren't having it and just gave me a dirty look like I'm a bad person. Was just trying to be friendly is all. What a letdown and the prices are outrageous too.


I specifically called to see about open bowling...I was told yes there would be, we do have leagues but they do not use all of the lanes, so we have lanes until we close. I take the trip, and go to the counter at 5pm... the place is near empty. The white haired man at the counter says I have no open lanes. I ask him about what I was told and like he was talking to a child he said we have no open lanes, I don't know why they told you that. No apology then he turned and walked away! Wow I will never come to this place again! What a shame! I hope that your league bowlers bring you enough business to stay open

The morning staff is great, no issues. The nighttime staff is a different story they aren't friendly at all. It seems as if you are an inconvenience when you come in. I would bowl another league if the nighttime staff was different. Charisse and Kyle are always great to deal with. The old man that works the bar is very slow be prepared to wait.

Bob Berk

Awful experience. We called in advance to be sure it was open bowling on a Wednesday afternoon. We were told no leagues until 6:15 and got there at 2:00. At that time the clerk told us their children's league would be starting at 4:00. When I said we had called and were misinformed, she said I had talked to her and she was wrong. No apology. 1 hour into bowling, we were the only ones in the place and they started blasting music. When I asked if they could turn it down, she said that there would soon be hundred of kids coming in and refused. Half an hour later, the first kids showed up and couldn't care less about the music. No hot water in the bathroom. Where does their kitchen staff wash their hands? No concern about paying customers. No way are we ever going back. I wouldn't have given any stars, but it won't post without a star rating.

Typical bowling alley

I would give this place negative 5 stars if I could. From the time my non white friend and I walked up we were getting stares from the two women outside smoking who turned out to be the snack bar attendants. So I’m thinking ok these people are rude but whatever. We go in and proceed to the counter where the man Ron rudely asks us what do we want. Umm, clearly we’re here to bowl so yeah. We tell him our shoe sizes and he asks us how many games we’re going to bowl....mind you it was 8pm on a Wednesday night. A little confused why it would matter how many games we were bowling we told him 2. Ron says ok and tells us we have to prepay. I’ve never had to prepay for bowling before but ok. By this point I’m a little disturbed by the way we’re being treated and I thought initially maybe I was just making more of it than it really was. I ask my friend if I was wrong for feeling some type of way about the situation and he confirms my feelings. So we prepay for our shoes and games and Ron puts us on lane 7....right in between two groups of bowlers. There were quite a few lanes open so I asked if we could have a different lane and he tells me no that he couldn’t give those lanes out. Whatever Ron. So we proceed to lane 7 and when I look around me there were Indians to my left, Hispanics to my right and white people separated from all of us by at least 5 lanes. I was so irritated by this point I really just wanted to leave but since we had to prepay we had no choice but to stay. After we were finished bowling we went into the bar area to throw some darts. We needed change and the 80 yr old bartender told us he couldn’t give us change and that we would have to go out to the counter. There was a register right behind him. He then proceeded to say are either one of you even 21? I’m 43 yrs old and I know I damn sure look older than 21 so yes, we are over 21. At this point we were both so frustrated we decided to leave. I will never visit this racist establishment again.

If you are looking for a nice place to hang out with friends, this is the place to go. It's nice and clean, and has more than enough lanes for everyone. Staff are great and super nice.

Great place to go hang with some friends

Phillip Le

I rarely write reviews, but this one made the difference. The tall old man who worked there was extremely rude and unprofessional. When our group (family members) walked in today around 9PM, the said "oh my God" as if he did not want us to be there (or he really did), even though it was our first time being there. A few minutes later, another group of four walked in, and he mumbled "what the f***"??? Even though they closed at 11PM, he told us that we could only play one game.

For some reason, nearly every employee was rude tonight. Bartender and at the counter. We were told at 10:15p that we didn't have enough time for another game when they close at 11p. And this is even on Star Wars night

Bowling at it's best!

Povilas Zakarauskas

Lanes are very decent at reasonable prices. However, the management is by far the worst I have ever encountered. "Manager Dave" (would not tell me his last name) at nights is a very sour human being. He would not honor "last call" saying that we had "too much" (we had 2 buckets of beers between 5 people the entire night). When we asked why, he proceeded to shut down our lanes and we didn't even get to finish our games!!!!! Never coming here again!!

Horrible experience. Went during week boyfriend and I took our daughter who loves to bowl. Place really doesn’t seem too kid friendly to me. Anyway we pay for shoes I wanted to pay cash and card so was told we can pay for game afterwards. Man at counter hands us a flyer and on flyer it says to download their new app and you can get one free game of bowling and other rewards. I thought awesome I’ll download it and see what’s on there. Sure enough they had the coupon to redeem one free game of bowling . That day was a day where each person can bowl for 2 dollars. Anyway, went to pay and showed my coupon for free game. Man argued with me and was really unfriendly saying Just because the day was already discounted that I couldn’t redeem. I couldn’t understand why so I asked what do you mean? He’s like oh come back another time and use it. Told old man that I’ll never come back and will go out to Tinley instead. Technically if they honored it that day they would make more money the next time we came and paid full price. WHY HAVE AN APP AND NOT HONOR WHAT It says?! I was so mad. Don’t hand out flyers to customers either then if you aren’t going to comply with what they say. There was NOTHING in fine print that said you weren’t aloud to use on a discounted bowling day. That doesn’t even make sense regardless! Also were being gawked at by snack attendants and when I paying for the game I shouldnt have had to pay for we were approached by a woman with a cup and lid asking but rather insisting we take it for my daughter saying she was going to spill her drink. Confirmed to me that the place is not exactly kid friendly. We told her no we were literally on our way out the door..My boyfriend was holding it for her and it was only water with a straw. At first I wasn’t sure if it was a nice gesture but it came off really rude. Never going back . Don’t get an app for your place If you’re going to turn your customers away on what you supposedly offer on it!

The old man was rude and RACIST he won't let us play "he said that there is something going on u can't play " after we left we called them and ask if they r open and they said yeah we r till 10,, as if we gonna die if he didn't let us play. Hope it will closed down,, people like that don't deserve to have a place like that.

Horrible management horrible staffing. It might be well cleaned and functioning but just horrible attitude towards non-Caucasian customers. It's a shame that in 2016 we still can't get over the racial profiling.
