Kids had a good time! Thought lanes would have been a bit more spaced from others considering it was for a birthday...the people who work there were very friendly..

Henry L McEachin Jr

It was great! Had my daughter's 16th Birthday there. Every one had a great time.

Gerald Danner

Fun times on my birthday

Alex Staub

Went with girlfriend and had a great time. Very nice

Cameron Dupuis

Great place. Not enough waitstaff on a Sunday.


Kids love the kids bowl free in the summer. Great program to help kids and parents get out and have fun without spending tons of money

Dustin Leonard

Fun place

Kentrell White

Agree! Great Bowling Alley, just a lil bit pricey. Other than that, great! Atmoshere, perfect!

Leonard Caponegro

A great place to take the family to go bowling. Friendly staff and atmosphere. Convenient parking next to the building.

Tammy Graves

Had a good time bowling today with my fanily.

Chad Newgent

Great night out with the family!

Dorothy Hurt

I go every week just for fun with the family. Everybody is nice and the place friendly and clean.

Devante Ash

A nice bowling alley especially inside but the lanes aren't grease that well. Also, the seating making you focus on your table not allow you the accessibility to communicate to other tables.

Kevin Haas

Very busy but lots of fun and good snacks

Ken Raede Jr

One of the nicest bowling alleys I've ever been in. Reminds me of the bowling centers in the casinos in Vegas. Very clean, very modern and HUGE. Hope I can come bowl here again sometime since I'm here from out of town.

Melissa Paulson

Such a fun place and has family deals

john davis

Had a company bowling event here. It had been over 20 years since I had bowled. This place seemed great to me, but I had nothing to compare it to.


The receptionist (Amanda) I believe was incredibly rude when asked why the website has different information than the actual bowling alley in terms of availability. We realize it's busy on Saturday but no need for the attitude.

Yvette Keene

So I absolutely love this place. 80 lanes. Staff is amazing. Manager is extremely friendly. Big Mike is by far the happiest person on early Sunday mornings. Definitely a place for the whole family.

Sonya Jones

Great place. Staff is very friendly, and the building is clean. Love going there and being able to do things as a family

Layshia Stewart

Great place for family fun!

Kinky Coily Shae Berry

Great place for a fun time. This is my second home. My husband bowls at Western 3-5 times a week. We have met a lot of friendly people there. Even the employees know us by our name.

Asia Nelms

If I could I give 0 stars I would... called ahead of time to make sure they were open . Was told they closed at 11pm showed up at 10... as we were walking in two employees smartly said “ pretty sure we’re closed guys” when we got to the desk they informed us they were closing in 30 min due to not having many guests. So you have people wasting their time, gas & money to get to your establishment that doesn’t even stay open until the time you tell them. Very disappointing .

Juanita Biddulph

We bowl once a week. Responsible rates. Very crowed and slow service.

Rosalind Sherrod

Great time with family but birthday server sucks very unprofessional would never do a party again

Dennis Bartlett

I consider it the best bowling alley. Clean, nice bar, and they seem to have something for everyone.

Aaron E

We have done many birthday parties here and they have all been wonderful. The bowling is great as well. The staff is very attentive and friendly. The food is great and reasonably priced. The specials for bowling are awesome too. The house balls have also improved over the years in case you don't have your own.

Shaunta Sullivan

Lots of lanes...Food was ok

Elda Jameson

Great spot for bowling!

Rene Koller

Signed my kids up for kids bowl free. Friendly staff and clean facility! Fun music, not too loud. I recommend signing up for the kids bowl free program. Shoe rental is only 2.50 per pair but kids get 2 free games daily. Up to 6 kids per household.

jasmine martin

Always fun. The need to remodel and update though. Game room is expensive. Food is okay. A couple of really friendly and engaging workers

Shane Hughes

Great place to take family or for hanging out with friends.

George Bruce

One of the best bowling Centers

Jahmon Allen

I had the best time of my life

jim b

Was a fun time, but prices were way higher than we expected. Way too expensive!!!

Danielle Hardin

Its been a family favorite since 1995 used to be in a father/daughter league it was a great way for my stepfather and I to bond!!!

Joseph Loukota

Nice, clean bowling alley. Food can't be ordered from screen & is a little generic. Nice staff

Nancy Williams

Fun but loud af. Greasy unhealthy foods. Would be nice if they had some healthier options

minecraft steve

We go every friday

Nick R

Good specials and the staff is friendly and accommodating! Thank you!!

Danny Krisher

Newly remodeled, clean, good food and nice bar.

Krystal Borer

It's a fun place to go bowling! They have an arcade for the kiddos and a bar for the adults. On the weekends they have karaoke and a live band! It's a fun thing to do with the family or friends.

Tiffany AW

Nothing Royal about this place. $60 for 2 lanes 2 hours $23 for mediocre food. You pay $3.50 for a large drink but get no refills and when we asked if we could get ice water she left the melted down pop and ice and filled it with water in the cup. I asked her about it and was told to get it from the drinking fountain. $7 for 3 tiny chicken tenders and also bought a 7" pepperoni pizza that comes with 4 Pepperoni's and not even enough cheese to cover the pizza. Bowling was fine and we enjoyed ourselves with that part but the other we were disappointed.

Ken Rule

I'm fairly new from Illinois and the counter person ( female...I didn't catch her name cute and maybe late 30s) was awesome. She made sure I knew about the discounts for vip members and how to enroll. She actually took my phone and made sure I was enrolled. The best customer service so far since I have been here. I'm starting to really like this town. Just caught her name.... Thanks Kristi for the help.

Brian Banks

Enjoyed my first bowling outing in 2 years. Except for the bumper bowling in the lanes to my was o.k. but it appears bowling 'courtesy' is a thing of the past.

Olabode Ogunmade

My first time bowling it was awesome, the environment friendly services perfect I would really want to go there again with my family


I smack at bowling

Colby Cecil

Fun place to bring the whole family. There are little bumpers you can manually raise for younger children, as well as ramps that the younger kids can roll their balls down. Lots of lanes and decent prices. Food choices are pretty good and there is a pretty good bar as well. There is also a pro shop to purchase balls if you care to. You can often find coupons in the mail.

Laurie B

This is an extremely large bowling facility. It was clean and smoke free. When we arrived, their computer system for getting people checked in was not working, so there was a line that wasn't moving. We waited close to 30 minutes before getting our lane assignment and shoes. Once we were bowling, everything worked as expected. At one point, one of our two lanes tried to shut is down in the middle of our second game. Once we said something, it was fixed and we had no other problems. I would recommend this bowling alley.

Arii Ariana

Had so much fun. They had a full bar. Also what I look for in a place like that and it's kid friendly for a family night or just a date with the spouse. Will be going back

Kirstin Ellis

We took my nephew here for his birthday very nice, friendly, helpful staff. It was a well maintained and clean bowling alley. Loved the arcade and prizes too. We had so much fun and will definitely be returning again soon.

DK Trey

The staff is always helpful. I've known the GM for several years. He's real good ppl.

King Red

Wanted a random outing this weekend so my wife found us some Groupon's for Royal pins and we had a fantastic time!! The kids bowled and played in the arcade. Their menu was delicious and the atmosphere was really laid back but extremely fun at the same time. The staff was very kind Especially the lady who checked us in. All in all me and my family will most definitely go back

Stacey Thomas

good deal on bowling only 15 dollars a person for 2 hrs of cosmic bowling on a Saturday night and a open bar to!

Michaela Taylor

Great service and very clean

ashlynn sterrett

Joshua Dickun

My kiddo.bowled with her fingers in the ball for the first proud !

Jack Presley

Nice staff, clean and nice facility!


Not happy with the last visit. We have an annual gathering with family. Past visits were great. This time the guy behind the counter was rude and cheated us out of a game. Might find another venue or give them one more chance.

Andie -

I have been here twice, and both times I have walked out due to the lack of customer service. The sad part is both experiences were a year apart. No improvements within a year is bad management. Teach your employees to be friendly and have some basic customer service standards. Absolutely horrible. I will not be wasting my time in the future and will ensure that my friends and family never return.

Petty Barber

Had an after hours gathering with co workers and was treated with smiles, great food, wonderful drinks and a relaxing atmosphere.. we ended up partying with the people in the lanes next to us lol.. Great time!!

Sonya Greenwade

We had a good time for the most part, only that our party was large and when we paid for the children to play it was a mix up about what lane they were suppose to be on. Other than that it was nice. We came on cosmic bowling night.

Gary Mcnally

They (Corkie, many others) helped us get well, 2014, for about three months. I was with a Vet Group through the VA Medical Center. I am doing better for their kind training and caring. Many Thanks.

Nichole Smith

Never any open lanes and they book leagues during high traffic times on Friday and saturday

Lisa Maydwell

Great time at Western Bowl, but these 2.30 fries need a little help. I thought someone had eaten out of my container.

Todd Helmold

It is a great time.

verna wysinger

Great place to take the family and bowling

Great, friends, clean.

Lashawn Mosley

Great place to bring friends

Meredith Atwell

Very nice bowling alley. Clean facility and reasonably priced for a Saturday date night

Charles Alford

Very cool bowling alley with more lanes than I’ve ever seen in one place. The bar was a joke, and the lane broke down twice. Other than that, it was great and I would return. Just don’t expect ANY cocktails from the bar

Brian Williamson

Great for family fun time.

jason Shrout

Friendly! Had a blast!

Taylor Adcock

Went here for my nephew's fifth birthday. We never have to wait for a lane and the black lights definetly add some extra fun. Lots of beer choices and the pizza is always a good choice for food.

Theresa Spears

This location has plenty of lanes! We joined the kids summer program and it is great! The staff are very helpful!

Joele Washington

It was fun and the service was nice but I saw a man with a weapon walk in but thankfully did nothing except bowl with his family.

Sherri Strong

I been bowling there for over 30 year's

William Morgan III

Nice Establishment, should be a definite added stop by if you're looking for a nice place to bowl.

Luke R

Reasonable pricing and a great selection of lanes makes this place awesome!


Great fun!

Lorrie Deweese

Monday's are the best days to go because of how cheap it is.

sean rowe

Good place for you and your family to have fun

Amanda Sisk

It was a blast and great service. I have a child with severe autism and he has enjoyed going bowling. I really appreciate the way they treated me and my children. Both with different forms of autism

Jason Shields

Great People who Care. Great Services. Make Great Experiences.

Tiffany Best

Had my son's birthday party there recently and kids and adults both had fun. The kids shoes should be a little cheaper and our bowling screen kept messing up but otherwise a decent place

new consultant videos measuring excellence

Great fun nice arcade (games are a lil overpriced Cheapest game the candy crane $.50 cents for 2 tootsie rolls...but my 7 year old bowled like. Big girl for the first time with her fingers in the ball...and drove for the first time in a pretty cool driving simulation arcade game...and was happy with picking out her vampire teeth to scare grandma as her prize for skeeball....only issue: Groupon had a deal(which I love...but YOU HAD TO PLAY 3 GAMES PER PERSON.....2 WITH A 7 YEAR OLD AND YOUR SPENT....we waisted my the didnt really save...5 stars if a better Groupon offer

gillermo rivera

Reserved 2 lanes for my 13th oldest bday staff was great service was great

Dee T

Was very disappointed that the website say they close at 12. But when we got there they said they close in 45 minutes 11pm. Other than that great place to get away and have fun.

Kelly Hackney

Had a wonderful time with a great group of people. This place has good bowling and great tasting pizza and snacks.

Deanna Erickson

Great bowling, lots of lanes, we never have to wait too long.

Robert Richardson

People are rude and disrespectful, not the staff they were polite and helpful.

johnna kern

Nice place friendly

Jenn Gadsden

Had fun... BIG alley but the beers were expensive as hell!! We did the Cosmic bowling thing and got 3 hours of bowling & shoes for $30 (I believe)

Skyler Livingston

I've been going to Western Bowl since I was 7 and it is great! My family and friends have always had a great time, we've never had any problems with our service! The crew is very hospitable and every time you feel welcomed! The remodel is awesome it's more spacious and creates an even better chill environment!

Joseph Walters

Went by my self to just go do some thing and figured I'd check this place out for the first time and kill some time and take my mind off things and it couldn't have went any better the staff that I met at the front desk and in the snack bar was very welcoming and friendly and it actually was a good time because of them... my game was crappy with a high score of 155 but I would be visiting again more can't think of any other place with the most friendly and easy going environment .....thanks Western bowl

Carol Farzetta

Always fun. The live music has improved a lot too so that is a bonus too. Great for a nice night out with friends

Noel family fun

This is my spot. Love western bowl. Nicest staff in city great with kids. Lanes always in good shape. Building just had a face-lift. Great place to bowl

liz mendoza

In need of a remodel and new equipment but it's nice and cheap overall

matt nuckols

It was a good day for State Bowling Competition

Steven Dickey

Place is decent but some of the patrons are very rude and inconsiderate of people's space.

Tammy Smith

A bit pricey for Toddlers. $14.75 for 2 hours an $$15.75 for Adults. You'd think that the toddler price would be a little less than a dollar.

Elle gen

What a fun family time! Food was good and the competition was on fire. Thanks


It was amazing

Luke Staley

Good clean family entertainment. Friendly staff.

Lorne Spencer

Arrived over an hour before closing and was denied a lane or any service because "they were closing early" since they weren't busy...but decided to turn away money???? Save the time and go somewhere that appreciates business.

G Rome

Awesome place to bowl ! Love it here


Their service sucked

angie Mcgeepound

Great deal for 2 hours of bowling and for the over 21 crowd good bucket drinks at a reasonable price

Felicia Jenkins

Bowling was great!!!! Food is priced too high, and bowling shoes are too badly worn out to be rented.

Candice Henderson

Just want to recognize a employee that works at concessions. Her name is Jasmine Decker and she is very kind

Chad Derrick

It was fun and clean.

Ryan Creswell

Absolutely terrible experience. Came in on a night when they were running a special but they had every lane booked for leagues. We were early enough to get two games in before the leagues started and that’s where we messed up. We went to our lane and all of the tables were filled with children throwing popcorn and a group playing loud music. We decided to go ahead and bowl and get food as we had already paid. When we received our food it was incorrect and took over half an hour to correct.

Carlton Young

I was highly upset when we paid for three games and only paid one but couldn't get a refund but u better believe they will never get my business again in this life time.

Larry Milam

You pay enough money for your drinks at the cafe but no refills? You can't even get your cup filled with ice water. The $7 tenders are 3 small tenders with 1 tiny cup of dipping sauce. We had fun bowling but the cafe disappointed us.


Had a blast with my family. We played 3 games and loved every second. Very clean and professional

Momma Whit

My son and I always have a blast here and with the coupons we get, cheap family fun. I've had a wonderful experience with every staff member here....everyone is so friendly and helpful. It's nice, clean and the "lounge" area is nice to chill in have a drink watch tv or others bowl.

Wesley Suggs

Great family fun.

barb hall

Friendly environment and great family fun

Robert Charlier

Nice place, they don't seem to do the business they used to (not packed on a Friday night) but it's not due to any failing on their part. A clean well run bowling alley.

Thomas Ricker

Excellent place to relax and bowl. Lots of options for families

Paulette Armstrong

80 lanes and lot's of room and the lights were good

Kevin Burrus

The brand name "Royal Pin" shows up when you search for this place but it's not on any of the external building signage. Anyway, the inside was clean, moden, and felt very inviting. My family enjoyed our games and I liked how all of the scorekeeping is automated. One suggestion, since you offer themes on the screen (comic book, stickman, etc..) it would be nice to be able to take a picture of it at the end of each game. Instead a distracting popup message covers 80% of the screen As-Soon-As the last score is calculated...not good.

Austin Mohr

Great bowling alley that really does care about keeping the lanes in great condition

Laura Carr

They their

que ball

Nice bowling alley friendly workers n a very clean environment i would go back

Cindy Jones

very nice bowling alley, reasonable prices.

Chad Stephey

Very good place.. Cosmic bowl

Mrs Allis0n

Very friendly place for family. Awesome good food! Loved the atmosphere extremely!

Angie Fields

We like to come here on our down time with family and friends to have some fun bowling. It's a clean and friendly place to go and get out of the house.

Tim Toepp

They need to clean the carpets regularly and regulate the temperature better, so hot in there and you stick frequently on the approach due to dirty carpeting

Ed Lamb

Felt like a good old fashioned bowling alley while being modern and convenient. Only down side was drinks were incredibly expensive.

Jay Pranger

Nice, had band in there

Stephanie Levi

Did a party great my family loves bowling

Charles Coleman

Good times! Great atmosphere... Me and my family love this place

Christopher Montgomery


leroy perez

The lanes are great, but the onlything I would suggest would bring your own bowling ball. The ones there are pretty bad. Other than that great place.

Stuart Barber

Great fun

Ryan Brockett

Im bad at bowling so this place is bad

Beto Leyva

Always go there with my friends and always have fun great place to spend time with the people you love

walter shenk

Havent been here in years. Really clean. Prices have gone up. Still lots of fun!!!

Angela J. Nealy, M.S.

We had a blast as a company event. Definitely a repeat. The staff were very accommodating

Bill Nichols

Nice place to have fun.

Montez Bell

It was fine that Saturday the family came out we had a good time at the bowling spot

Alec Davidson

I came here with my brother and sister to celebrate my brother's birthday. Our game was out of rotation so that it would reset when it was not supposed to, so I went to the front desk and asked if they could put the game back in rotation for me. She let me know that this happens from time to time and that there would be someone to come fix it shortly. After 15 minutes of waiting on someone to come fix our game I finally decided that I didn't want to wait any longer, and returned to the front desk to ask for a refund, received my refund, and left. I'm leaving two stars because regardless of my experience, the woman working the front desk was polite and apologetic.

John Harvey

Great men's league on thursday nights

richard chapple

My 5 yr old son's favorite place

Isham Manou

Had fun Bar crazy expensive though

Barbie Miller

Friendly staff, helpful and gracious with our littles when we visited!

Monae Pate

So I went to western Bowl with my family and when I used the ATM they double charged me and didn’t dispense my money , I went to the manger about this and he told me he can’t do anything about it come back tomorrow. We ordered food and didn’t get it until they closed , very bad first experience.
