Fair amount of lanes to bowl at. Nightly deals for food and bowling. Lunch is quick when it's not busy, and cheap (25% typically). Service can be a bit slow or dodgy during busy times and the college crowd is large over the weekend.

Great family fun.

Jessica Brogley

The owner is really putting a ton of effort into remodeling and turning PL into a place to have a meal, enjoy bowling, and even throw a party. He's done collaborative work with the local school districts and has shown a definite uptick in connecting with the community on Facebook. -- All commendable! By the way, we stopped by for the Sunday brunch -- it was real good.


Always a great place to go for a night out. Whether you are a college student looking to settle down after a long week of classes or you are a parent with kids looking for cheap fun. Always friendly staff and cheap food/drinks/games.

Great family fun and very affordable.

Jed Ambrose

Neil Zielinski

Lane quality is actually really nice, food is so-so, drinks and bowling are way overpriced. If you're into bowling though, try to get a lane on a Saturday. They oil for leagues and boy do they put it on thick. It can be a really tough shot, but it really helps out if you're trying to practice in more oily conditions.

Great food, along with a fresh facelift. We didn't bowl but we had a nice lunch. Choice of buffett, or off the menu. Got a great fish sandwich that came with fries, soup, and salad bar. The bartender was working super hard to get to everyone, because the place was busy. No wait, and not crowded.

Thor Richardson

Love bowling here! Especially on Wednesdays for $5 bowling!

Matthew Hernandez

Our first visit to this establishment was enjoyable family outing on a sunday. They offered open bowling all day and from 1 to 4 it was cosmic bowling. The atmosphere was kid friendly with fun, upbeat songs playing. I also ordered some pizza and fries for the family. The food was surprisingly delicious and served hot, however, it was very overpriced. Also, the rental shoes were pretty worn out and dirty on the outside. The lanes were best clean. The scoreboard offered fun frames and a camera to take pictures with the kids. Overall, our family is looking forward to going there again!

Judy Kerl

Fun night nice staff.

Chris Brunton

Huge Sunday morning buffet. Great selection and coffee, milks, and 3 or 4 kinds of juice are included in the low price. They just started doing this and are working out the kinks but it's the best bang for your buck around!

Gina Kastner

Joe and the staff of Pioneer Lanes have always been more than accommodating to my family. There food is spectacular. Clean bathrooms. Great parking. We especially enjoy all the holiday activities, such as Bowl with the Easter Bunny. They also have an amazing event area which they successfully held and catered our family reunion for over 60 people. We have always enjoyed attending birthday parties in this family friendly environment. They are always updating their space and menu which includes many gluten free items which are a necessity for my family. Pioneer Lanes has been a staple in my life since my own childhood. Since Joe has taken it over, it will now be a staple in my daughters life as well.
