It was great except the old lady is disrespectful

Pins where having problems setting, but the lady continued to credit us while they were having isssues

A place to have fun with the kids. Place is a little outdated but the staff is friendly

Breanna Aman

5 STARS PLUS. Take your Family and Enjoy,, A CLEAN FRIENDLY PLACE. Bowling Prices are very good. There are Arcade games that the kids can play. You would think that Because of the Fair price cost of bowling that they would have been High Priced for food and drink But it wasn't. The food was REALLY good for a Bowling alley . They also have a good bar Separately But the Door to it is inside the place. I went to the Bowling alley in kenner and left due to the price of the lanes and higher prices for the food. I left by mistake good feedback for the kenner place by mistake. Anyway,, Go to Colonel Bowling alley in Harahan Louisiana,, You Can't Bet it.


Kids had a blast there.

Kathryn Noble

One of my favorite bowling alleys in the greater New Orleans area! It's on the smaller side so call for availability, but the service and food is worth it. If you want to have a great bowling experience wether it be for a league, party, or just friends night out then this is the place to go!

jim bellmyer

Great Place


Awesome time

Dustin Labat

The lanes were so unbelievably oily, there was no hook in my PROFESSIONAL balls. Ridiculously overpriced. They charge for shoe rental. Go to AMF .better quality and price.

The Dukes Gun

Price is rediculous. And the lanes close on you the moment your hour runs out. Righr in the middle of the game your lane closes. Rip tie breaker

BigE Nola

Great family atmosphere,great food . breakfast lunch and dinner.

Rachel Draughon

I love this bowling alley. It's been practically the same since I was a kid. Nice staff. Great food (especially breakfast). My brother is on a bowling league here on Saturday mornings and everyone is always so nice!

Pat Corkern

My husband and I had our special needs adult son's 36th birthday party here. It was a wonderful experience! We purchased the king pin package. All we had to provide was the birthday cake and cups of ice cream. Colonial Bowling Lanes took care of everything else. Each person we spoke with on the details of the party excelled in customer service. We ordered extra catering through the bowling alley. The food was delicious. The young lady Liz who handled our party was excellent. Our many guests complimented us on the party and the venue. This was such a positive experience!

clarence lambert

Could have more family times but good otherwise

Shauna Crowden

Cool bowling alley

E.Y. B.

Staff is very friendly. Didn't try the food but they do have a bar. No problems with equipment or shoes

Jon Bresler

We had my son's 14th birthday party at Colonial Lanes during the 12:30-2:30 pm time slot, which features the black lighting, disco balls, and music. The staff were all very friendly and energetic, the kids had great fun bowling. The 4 pizzas and unlimited soft drinks were perfect for the kids, plus a decent beer selection worked for the adults. Would happily go back again.

David B

Recent renovations, looked great but lanes were very oily & had to wait minutes for every 15lb ball return! Young guy behind counter was responsive but never could fix the problem and was ALWAYS playing a game on his phone.

Jamie Bertucci

Always a fun time here. Lots of lanes open on Saturdays during the day. Plenty of different size bowling balls to choose from. We enjoy being able to play music on the new jukebox from the app on our phones. Little arcade is a money pit for parents but the kids love it!! LOL

Lone Sheriff

Way too crowded. Bowling leagues dominate everything.

Andrea F

Tyler Bell

So much fun to go with friends. Just wish their arcade was a bit more updated

Carolyn Collins

It took twenty five years for me to return to league bowling. After the completion is over there's new people to share pointers with. This family environment is great with friendly service.

Blair Robottom

Make workers were extremely rude. I’m pregnant and asked to use a lighter a ball to bowl with. They refused and said it was against policy. They said they didn’t care that I was pregnant and that smaller balls were only for kids. I will never return.

Jason Landry

Great food and prices

Earl Wallace

Clean and the snack bar has the best food. The lanes are well kept. Great family place !!!

Mary J

Nice bowling alley and very family friendly. It wasn't super crowded and that was a bonus...prices were very reasonable too. It's was $24 for an hour and we had 8 bowlers...then between 3pm-till, was "family time" and prices dropped to $14/hr...great family was decent and staff was Great! We spoke with Tod, I'm not sure if he was the owner or manager, but he was very nice and made us feel very welcome with our very, very active crew of kids...ages ranging from 2-7. Kids really enjoyed themselves...adults, as well! Great Sunday family fun...memories to be cherished! Nice music was played while we bowled Thumbs up!!


Great food, friendly polite employees. The bartender is the best. Join a league we have the best time.

Desmarie Johnson

Great service, clean environment, friendly staff. Had great family fun !!

Marley Bonnee

24$ a hour per lane up to 8 people cheapest in New Orleans, food is over priced like but taste real good small tables and chairs

Gregory Alexander

Great staff for open bowling between 10 and midnight.

Sasha-Kay Myers

Everything was great from the moment I got there. I don't usually write reviews but I felt the need to write one for this place. The lady who checked us in was very friendly. The food was amazing. The bartender Mitchell makes me want to make this place my new bar spot. I will definitely go back.

Fun for everyone.

Don Angeron

I eat here very often during the week. The food is great. I am surprised at the vast options from the menu and the amount of made from scratch items. The staff Ms. Nancy, Christian, Michelle,and Chef Mike are great. Mitchell the bartender is a great host and so funny. Don't judge it just because it is a bowling alley. The place is awesome

Bowling is such fun and the staff is so friendly ,you can't go wrong here

Charles Noble

Friendly staff and good food

Phyllis Walls

Food is really good

Kelly Trail

The bowling was fine in the pizza was good. The place needs a good cleaning. All the chairs are dirty from hands and feet. The staff is not very attentive. The music is very loud. Great for parties.

King Dave

Nice bowling spot. Smaller than most, not necessarily a bad thing. The pizza was really good.

Ed Krause

Love food and bowling

Ayoyinka Shyllon

It was a great experience. From the booking of the event to the day of the party. I took out a star because to book the event and payment had to be communicated to two people so a lot of back and forth phone calls. Other than that on the day of the party, everything went smoothly. Our food was brought out on time and the dispersion of drinks were organized. FYI, they have a huge drink selection here. They have various brands of domestic and imported beer, domestic and imported liquor, red and white wine as well as soft drinks and fountain drinks. I definitely recommend it for a bowling party.

Thelma Celestin

Enjoy getting my family together for a fun time. The food is teriffic and the people are friendly and fantastic to work with. Thank you for making our get together so enjoyable. Must also mention how clean the place is kept and that the equipment is always in working order. I guess you realize that i highly recomend Colonial Lanes on Jefferson highway.

warren ratcliff

My baby boy had a lil party over and everything was pretty good. We had some sandwiches and wings for the adults and pizza for the kids and the food was really good. The only thing was the 2 hours we had to party went by fast but overall the kids enjoyed themselves as well as the adults. Good environment and Friendly staff,definitely will visit again as a family outing and stay longer.

Kenneth Mouille

Great place to bring the kids family fun nice for events and the food is good and reasonable

Alan Berg

Really fun place to bowl. Full bar and snacks for sale. Clean, well lit. Everything you could ask for going bowling.

Meco Cooper

Open at the right hours. Quiet little spot off of the main sites. Called ahead - no waiting. My son, pizza and a beer good evening.

Gina Fortado

Wonderful team building event at Colonial Lanes for the staff of Tulane University School of Professional Advancement, Elmwood Campus. Great food for our teams too! The staff and owner of Colonial Lanes were fantastic!

robert chester

Had lots of fun and the food was great

Brandon Koch

Im not a fan of renting lane for estimated time. I.e. renting by hour. if you have children or elderly u wont get money worth. Plus if your in line to order pizza or get a drink there's 10 to 15mins just waiting in line. So the average person is paying for the hour but likely only bowling 1.5 games b4 it shuts off. We paid for 2 hours. It was just me, my girl, and her 10 yr old. We only played 2 full games and the start of 4th frame in 3rd game b4 it was over. 2 adults playing might be worth it...but good luck if you have more or if lanes next to you have children. Other than that they do a great job..and employees are wonderful. Time wasted is only concern.

Cliff Eugene

Always nice. Food is good. Great prices

Aj Vicknair

Great place to take the kids. Clean, nothing is broken and Sunday specials are great.

Rachelle Lauricella

The only reason I'm giving two stars instead of one... They have great burgers. I'm very sad to say I will not return to Colonial Lanes. I use to come here on field trips with my elementary school two doors down. My dad is friends with the owner. The manager lives down the street from me. He's a very sweet man, but this business is awful. I called two different times to check leagues. I was given two different times 9:00pm and 10:00 pm. I came at 10, since its "cosmic hour" meaning they turn the lights down and have tacky disco lights on its $30 an hour. I really wanted to bowl so I paid it... That doesn't include shoes $3.50 a pair. I spent a good ten minutes walking around searching for a ball under 9lbs. They have very limited choices. Finally I figure out they keep the light balls behind the counter. I ask them for a 6lb ball, what I usually bowl with, they refuse to give it to me. Instead he gives me a 8lb ball. At this point I just want to bowl. I walk over to my lane I have 40 minutes left. Apparently they start the timer when you pay. I had my boyfriend go ask to reset it they told him, "time starts when you pay". They did not tell us this when we paid. Our lane light wasn't even turned on yet. He credited us ten minutes. Whatever. We started bowling. After five minutes my wrist hurt like hell. I ask my boyfriend to go tell them I NEED a lighter ball, preferably 6lbs... They give me 7lbs. He told him the 6lb ball is hollow that's why they don't allow people to use it. I'm not sure what that has to do with anything. We bowl more. Finish one game. Start our second. Got 3/4ths through and our time ran out. They turned off our lane. I'd go ask for more time if they weren't absolutely rude, also I wouldn't dare contribute more of my money to this business. I'm ashamed I did in the first place. Go to AMF in Kenner. 100% better.

Jessy Hilberry

Omg their nachos are delicious

Mark Dailey

Went to the bar for a burger. Best burger I've had in awhile, but it didn't blow my mind or anything. This rating is for the food at the bar only.

Megan Feurtado

Best food and bar tender

Constance LaFont

Awesome place!

Ste ve Bracewell

Actually went to the red wagon restaurant which is next to the bowling lanes,good lunches,


We had a birthday party for a group of 5-6 year olds here several weeks ago. We are sad to say that it was a disappointment. First and foremost, the manager was anything but professional in his demeanor with the children. He actually yelled at the kids, opposed to addressing the issues at hand with an ADULT! We paid for three lanes, but only had access to two lanes for half he party. Then, the service was poor. We had to ask several times for our 3rd pizza that should have been delivered with the initial two, since we paid for THREE lanes ( 1 pizza per lane). NEVER, NEVER have a party here.

Jason O'Connor

Great place for a kids birthday party or to hang with friends and family.

{VG}Price is gonna give you- rice Gaming

They have the best staff and amazing games

Hansen Touchard

tables for bowler teams must have outlet to plug in to feed up cell's battery. And need closed caption from front desk's announcement. We are Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Overall, wonderful, friendly and lay back

Kelly Couch

Very popular for kids birthday parties on Saturdays. Wonderful set up for kids and families with glow bowling, fun soundtrack, super clean setting. Great idea for a fun family activity.

Andrew Perrin

a good place to bowl.

Barbara Coleman

I have bowled here on two occasions with my family but on Sat, August 10 was the worst experience I've had here or any recreation area servicing families are children. My grandchildren were here for the summer and as an end to their vacation we decided to gather the kids and go bowling. The price for two hrs. pizza and drink per last was $74.00 I rented two. Their were a total of thirteen.. Fifteen min into out section we were confronted three times .The last time we were asked to move out of chairs because the lane next to us were being rented.. Just petty! So much so I began to get upset.. No professisum at all Don't Tell me your rule after you've gotten my money .I felt like of all the people bowling my family was singled out... Two young men came to me to apologize and said his Manager were sending them over to my lane and he was sorry to bother us..I will never give them my money ever again.. Even vwhen we left this lady was giving us much attitude. I have no reasonable explanation...

Stephen St.Pierre

As one of only a handful of bowling alleys left this one has it all. Great staff, great options at the snack bar and a full bar. Obviously no smoking inside. Have had several parties here and just walked in ad played. Great set of lanes!!!

Everything I want from a bowling alley. Only meh part of the evening was inner conflict among the operational staff. Decent draft beer selection and wonderful safe place for young folk to mix.

Ashley Young

$60 for two people to I know why they had lanes open on a Saturday night! Outrageous!


My time here was totally amazing, I bowled 10 strikes in one game!

Ashley Drewes

Pure junk hole! All the arcade games are broken. The staff is rude. For a birthday party they don't let you finish the game, but rather cut it off at the exact hour is up - even with no one waiting or it being crowded. Not to mention it's dirty and disgusting.

steven clement

Super clean and up to date, super friendly and attentive staff.

Mark A McDowell

Awesome place

Breana Daniel
