Nicole Mcgill

Amazing staff

Scott Wheeless

Awesome pool table. But bring your own stick because the house sticks suck.

D Williamson Jr

Family & friends had a good time.

Victoria Collins

Had Nephew's Birthday there had fun on a Friday Night

Jonathan Johnson

Took the wife here on a date when we were on vacation. We enjoyed it a lot and had a blast. Main reason im rating it 3 stars is because they charged us 9 dollars an hour to play pool in which in my eyes is a total rip off .Other than that great service and a fun place to go to

Mr Chatterbox

I came here to test out some new equipment I purchased. When I asked if the lanes were oiled recently I was was told yes. The lanes were so dry that I could not use my new ball because it was a for medium to heavy oil. What makes things worse it that I had to prepay for my games.

A L Moxley

A family fun entertainment place to go and enjoy yourself with friends and family. If you enjoy bowling they have many leagues that you can join if you're interested. They also offer children leaves on Saturday morning. Some leads play for money at the end of the season some play just for fun.

Whoever the guy is answering phones right now at 4:30 in the afternoon on 1/22/18 is rude as hell i just called and wanted some information about bowling prices and their billiards table and when asked how many tables they have his response was " i dont know, why" i said because i was considering going there this coming saturday and when i asked what the prices were for bowling he gave me the billiards price instead of being rude know what the hell your answering. Will not be going there after all.

Gloria Ramos

We went around 6pm. Perfect time! Nice and quiet! Customer service was Awesome! The food at the cafeteria was great! Overall, great experience!

Alan Jordon

One of the best bowling alleys in the region. Lost of lanes, clean environment, and friendly staff.

Amanda Hires

Would give 0 if I could. On a Saturday afternoon they did not have any bumpers for my son to play. Poor management. Screaming down the counter and had no available bumpers for the public. 3 year old left in tears. No sense of caring. Will never come again.

Anthony R

Lanes are a little greasy

Shelly Calinski

Very family friendly. There is bowling, billards, and a arcade to entertain you

A little pricey but other than that it's a good time every once in a while.

kelly griffin

Great socialising n great service...

Gwendolyn Gooden

Nice bowling ally, plenty of parking pricing not bad, but drop the 1967 attitudes!

Roger Carter

Dry lanes little pricey for Friday morning

Kayla Renee

My friend and I went here to bowl two rounds and asked the girl at the counter to split the cost of two whole rounds, not split the price of one game. When the first round ended I went to bowl and the manager yelled at us for bowling because she said that what we paid for was over. The manager ran over somewhere else before I could come up and talk to her. I know it wasn't the young girls'fault for misunderstanding, but the manager had no need to be so rude. Won't come back here. Happy Birthday to me I guess!

What Ever

Nice clean alley

Debrah Smith Daniel

Oily lanes. Kept slipping.

Bob Huzz

Customer service wasn’t the best at the front desk please re-train staff on promotional deals and be a little bit more customer service friendly

Brandon Winters

Very well kept bowling alley. Friendly staff

Vi 58Bnnx99

Very nice and clean and kept up, bowling is good on these lanes not like Ray's lanes, old and too much oil on the lanes

latonia shields-marsh

Great place to bowl. Hardly any food service. Can't bring in food or drink. However great place for kid birthday parties.

bryce jones

It's a fun place to bowl but a lot of their games are either broken, out-dated, just swallow the coins. Other then that you'll have a blast and get full off of there amazing Pizza

Louis Bain II

Fun place with plenty of lanes and good deals on bowling. The snack shop is good, the bartender is very friendly and helpful, and the pro shop is great. The front desk personnel are great too.

Brandon Gutierrez

Rude, please change your hours! Every Sunday we come at 8:30 and they tell us we can't stay and bowl cause it's too late! This place needs new managers and a staff that enjoys their job. Dirty and beat up as well!

Trahern McGee

A great place to enjoy bowling. The staff is friendly and very helpful to make your experience great.

No Name

This place is awesome! The food is good especially the wings...


for the price this was not worth the bowl. maybe because they were cleaning or something but they stuffed everyone right next to each other on one end of the alley and did not use 3/4 of the building. the building was in disrepair and the bowling balls were all redrilled or missing markings showing the weight. all this might be ok but it was prime time on a weekend! the other parts of the building including the arcade or billiards were dark like they had it closed down. not sure what was up but a very poor experience

Deanna Rodecki

Large bowling alley with lots of lanes, an arcade, small restaurant, and a pro shop. It was nice enough, I feel very neutral about it.

Alvin Franklin Jr

It's an awesome bowling alley with a great staff

Jeff Howard

Fun place nice lanes ..good pro shop

Amber Gonzales

Love it here. STAFF IS GREAT

justin Florence

Went there to drink a few and play pool and drink a few. Got there at 10:50 They close at 12:00 figured I should have enough time to play a game and get a bucket with my buddy. 11:20 rolls around and they say we got 10 minutes. So we have to finish our game and slam our beers..... not to mention all of their pool cues suck. Wish I would have brought my own ,but didn't have it with me. Next time I'll just go to a place that closes when they say not when they want.

Charles Scott

My place To hang out

Rebecca Allen

Balls kept getting stuck the entire time we were bowling .

Alex F

$1 per bowling game on Wednesday. Good value. Beer is kind of pricey but they offer weekly deals $13+ per bucket of 5.

Craig Maulden

Great place to bowl!

Matthew Williams

Great to host team building events and local tournaments

Vida. Chandler

I killed 478 Zombies scored number 5 on the board 35,700.

Alexis Todd

Not a bad place. We went for a child's birthday party & it wasn't bad. Both adults and kids had a blast. The hospitality was a bit lacking like we didn't get any refills on soda and they stuck the party in the middle of the alley with people coming and going past the pizza and gifts so there was constant traffic.

Jennifer Hall

A lot of fun. Staff were nice and helpful. Bathrooms and building were clean.

Michael Miller

Courteous staff and family had fun..good experience.

Neil Bell

Nice, clean, well maintained. Extremely polite, and accommodating staff. I would have given more stars, but I ordered food (chicken sandwich) and it literally had the consistency of Goodyear tire rubber.

Michelle Denton

Went here on a Saturday and had to keep switching lanes because they kept messing up and they added time to our limit which was nicd. However we went here a few days later and the lane stopped working waited for about 12 minutes and they said they would fix it in a minute waited longer it was not fixed. My boyfriend went and talked to front desk and the guy was rude to us about it. Do not recommend unless you like your time wasted.

Saundra Washington

Dollar day was great

Cory Donahue

Hey, when you decide to go bowling, it's about the only place left.

Jerame Aikens

Always willing to accommodate

Phyllis Dobbelaere

Went during the day and for a loud bowling establishment it was very clean and relaxing.

April Skoufezis

I bought a bowling ball as a gift for a family member shop inside the bowling alley and the 2 guys that were working there were AMAZING... I know quite a bit about bowling because it's basically in my blood... My family is full of bowlers and has been for generations... The guys that work in the shop answered every question I had and were extremely patient with me when I was completely undecided on what I wanted... They then told me about a sale they were having where I could get a ball a bag and a towel for a lot less than I was expecting to pay... After I bought my items the man that was helping me handed me a card for a free game and then on the back of the card he wrote something on it so that the person the gift was for could go in and get the holes drilled and if he didn't like the ball he could pick out one he wanted... My whole experience there was 100 times better than what I was expecting...

Jennifer DeVeaux

Clean facility- Nice Sunday Fun

Mihailo Naumovic

Needs better food and service

Heather Kwiecinski

We were there this morning for a tournament. The coffe shop/snack shop staff is absolutely TERRIBLE. I would never go back to that alley just due to the horrible service (or lack there of).

Stephan Mitchell


Mike Roetker

I have been to Stardust Bowl several times over the years. It's a good atmosphere and although not all areas of Merrillville are all that safe, you can feel safe in this area. Good for family fun or a night out bowling with the guys. The staff has always been more than friendly to me and my family. Good food/snacks too!

Telicia Porter-Kelly

Best bowling alley. Very polite and helpful staff.

joseph pawlus

Fun times!


I love coming here to bowl with my family

Steve Manchen

Nice place for a family outing. Its not too updated but its pretty clean and your average bowling alley. Suitable for large groups. Has a new arcade which is nice. Their prices are a little up there but they do have deals certain days of the week for $1 (per person) games. Helpful employees who did provide a few free games when we had an issue with having to leave early after paying. Good management.

Phil Vera

Great place to have a good time lol. $1. a game on Thursdays n also on Mondays after Labor day!.

April Masters

Never have I ever bowled in a place with more than 60 LANES!!! So huge!!!

Tanaia Armstrong

I just called to inquire about some things and the staff who answered the phone was SUPER rude so i decided to take my party of 12 elsewhere.

Shaunice Spencer

Found a great deal on Groupon for 6 people to bowl for 2 hours for only $27! The food isn't bad and neither is the small bar. It's a nice family place that isn't too chaotic.

Greg Koszut

Had a good time shooting pool and drinking from the bar. Bartender was very friendly and it is a fun place to hang out!

Andrew Grumbine

My four year old daughter loved this place. Staff was great.

David Flores

Nice people, fun time and reasonably priced

james walton

Great place

Mydialog Moves

Nice place but the cook needs to be replaced. She's super slow, you have to repeat everything to her multiple times and she still can't get the order correct. Terrible

Toby Arndt

It was ok. Lady with the shoes was strange.

Deanna King

Fun, friendly, family atmosphere!

Skylar Trail

They were very nice and helpful

Tonya Hill

Always a good time here

Brandon Halsey

My favorite bowling alley. Always fun and always has open lanes.


Had my birthday here.

Heidi Shirley

Staff is very nice and the place is clean.

Rudy Le' Plane

Stardust Bowl is a Northwest Indiana region favorite! Super nice people and always a fun crowd! The lanes are AMF Classic Wood lanes for a true bowling alley experience! The billiard/pool tables are the best money can buy...Brunswick Gold Crown 4 1/2 by 9ft competition tables with a snooker table to boot. These are not your cheesy small weighted bar pool tables, these tables test your skills. The pro shop has everything you need with a nice staff and sweet deals. The classic cafeteria style eating area truly takes you back to a more peaceful time in regard to bowling. My client and I got there when they opened and there is nothing better than having an entire bowling alley to yourself for practice. It did fill up so call ahead if you are worried about time. Please visit and support local owned businesses!! You'll regret it if you don't!!

melanie bradshaw

The short fat little blonde with glasses that works the front counter on Saturday night 3/16 needs a lesson on customer service. She was crazy rude on the phone and when we came in to try and bowl. She was unwelcoming and didn’t want to help anyone. Paying customers walked out because of her bad attitude.

Ise Rod

Great place to get your bowl on! Especially if you go Mondays where a game will set you back a buck, U can't beat that! I will definitely be back again and again. Hopefully this special will go into December too.

David Gutierrez

Lots of Lane's and room

Annie Smith
