REVIEWS OF Petro Bowl IN Louisiana

Staff was very nice and attentive! Food was not the best but fair. Pretty clean for most part.

Jacen Deal

Had a fun night. Great service.

Pam Myers

Pin and lane malfunctions . We bowled one game with 14 people in our party. When our game ended the computerized score board initiated a second game for 3members of the party. We brought it to the attendant and he said he couldn't delete the transaction and wouldn't refund the charge. Instead they gave 3 free game tickets that couldn't be honored on the same night. We gave them plenty of business in concessions and we had a great time with the family. Just saying we left feeling they were unfair how they handled the transaction that was probably imputed wrong in the beginning because we prepaid for one game.

Mr. A.M.

Love the atmosphere... Hate the old lanes

Sylvia Cherry

Only gave 3 stars because of the food service and the waiting list

Amanda Hanks

The first time we went was fine. The second time our lane kept glitching and we couldn't get help from an employee.

Jason Klein

Could use a facelift but otherwise it's a decent old bowling alley. Snack bar really could be better.

Angela Queenan

Fun family night

Walter Cochran

The only place to bowl in Lake Charles

Natasha Peeples

It's so fun & very reasonable pricing. Great date night :)

Blake Donahue

It’s a fun bowling alley, it’s not spectacular but it is a fun place to go with friends on a night. I would recommend.

Aolani Arroyo

Fun friend and family place

Mona Ryder

Very nice place to take a family bowling. They even make accommodations for handicapped individuals. They have accommodations for even small children to be able to bowl.

Heather Bellard

Always have a great experience here. Well except for the snack bar not being open during the day . But even when it has been open the staff is always so rude . But thats the only bad part

Larry Moore Jr

I enjoyed it

Sonja Monceaux

Great family place. Friendly and helpful workers. Pizza was delicious.

Eva Lee

Just fun


I took my 5 year old bowling for the first time last week while we waited around for dance, and we had a blast. Anticipated on taking my other daughter this past Monday, and was denied the chance. I was told that because two leagues were coming in to practice, that we couldn’t bowl. Mind you, there were only a couple of others bowling and tons of empty lanes. One quick game wouldn’t have hurt. I don’t believe that customers should have to come around the times of the leagues practicing, but should be able to come when we desire. We could have made this a weekly thing while waiting for dance. Now I’m not sure when I will return.

River Keep

I went here with my family and we had loads of fun. All together we were 16 people and took 3 lanes, and paid for 2 games and in turn we were accommodated with 1 free match and a free face off! The fried oreos and beignets were absolutely delicious, sprinkled with powdered sugar, and came out in a timely fashion. I definitely recommend y'all to come bowling here if you want cheap lanes and decent food.

Derek Johnson

Your run of the mill bowling alley. Little ran down, good for a game or two of bowling. They have a food bar serving regular fried foods and grilled classics, but I wouldn't recommend it.

Angela Young

Great place for out of town visters.. all though the could not find my shoe. When time to leave

Whtup J

Fun to bring the kids too. They can learn to play and have fun. They serve good food. Really great place

Matthew Erwin

Your typical run down bowling alley. Good prices though.

Norma LeBouef

Great place to bring the family to have a great time

Mareka Thierry

Great place to have fun and enjoy yourself with family and friends. We always have a great time here helpful and great staff as well.

Joshua Comer

I had fun. Our lane always miscounted the pins that fell, so the score wasn't accurate. It took forever just to get a soda at the concession stand. Too many young kids acting a fool, screaming and cussing around our kids. That was pretty annoying.


Very nice experience with family and friends , place is clean with nice employees.

Ericka Desjardine

Came In for a double birthday and was greeted by the rudest person..Ashley...we had a cake as we normally do on birthdays We were stopped with her saying did you read the door Outside food is not allowed. OK it’s a birthday we were ordering pizza and food there. They Do you not sell cakes and we have never had this problem before. We had 4 pizzas ordered 4 Pitchers of drinks and 4 orders of Bingets and 2 orders of cheese sticks but we couldn’t have cake? This is crazy.. We put two tables together so that we can have all the pizza and food together she comes to us making Groaning noises with annoyed face and said they don’t like tables To gather..Seriously I spoke to the Mgr over her and he said he was sorry and he’d get back with us but did not...2 other customers were annoyed by her rudeness as well. Come on petro bowl this is horrible service... ASHLEY was the rudest person I’ve ever Encountered there...Very disrespectful to customers Response to owner we did pay for 2 lanes for 3 games also... what was paid to y’all cost more then the 75 for a party...

Waiting list on Saturday nights is outrageous. Waited over two hours for a lane (it was only me and my father who were bowling). Had a great time though

Lindsay Pierce

Had a great time here. Even got a good drink. Hopefully can bring more college kids in and get a league started.

Brent Herrod

Nice bowling alley, horrible employees, paid for 4 games, only got 3, tried to correct with employee, even showed my recipient for the charge an he said no. I asked him if he really wanted to lose our mens group thats been bowling there for a year over his mistake that was a total of $7.50? He said he guess so if i was gonna get all pissed off over it. Long story short, we wont be back!!

Melanie Peña

Got here and they put us in our lane. 5 minutes later they made us all move because they forgot there was a tournament there. I don’t even wanna bowl anymore

Sammie Ramour

Very poor service. Need more people working. Machines kept skipping turns. Balls getting stuck. Not giving correct points.

Preston Stanfill

Our lane froze up three times totally an hour and a half of waiting to bowl. When brought to employees attention there seemed to be no care. We planned on bowling for more games but after three times in two games adding up to thirty minutes wait time to get started again, in the middle of a game, we decided to leave. Would not really recommend to anyone. I understand stuff happens but after the second time maybe a lane change or a sorry would be more appreciated. Bartender had great customer service though so at least we got a drink with a smile.

Jennifer McGlynn

We loved it. The kids had a great time.

John R.

Great price, fun. I did not find the service too great.

It's been a while since I have been there. I would go on Sunday evenings when you can bowl all you want for $9 and that includes your shoes and 2 slices of pizza and a drink. And I would bring my BBBS match and she enjoyed going as well. She never been bowling before.

Thomas Ingram

Great place to for groups or just doing some practice alone!!!

Cindy Johns

We went to Petro bowl this morning from 9-11am. And we had a blast.. It's very clean, the employees were extremely nice to us and very professional to boot.. This is a nice place to bring the children anytime to have good clean fun.. The food was really good!! The employee in the food court was really nice and she was fast.. It's so easy to get to..

Raul Lorenzana

Just some way to go to be with friends and to have some fun. They sell pictures of beer that are truly cold. They also sell pizza and a few others items, like nachos and cheese soda caramel iced tea. The place is pretty big like about 20 lanes oh, I know you couldn't tell from the outside. Bathrooms that kept nice and clean oh, and all the lanes beautifully polished. You'll find how family-oriented it is oh, when they have a small slider board, for children to put the bowling ball and roll it down the aisle. I thought that was wonderful, especially watching the faces on the kids. This plenty of seating outside of the boulders area. And I just had a great time, and I'm pretty sure you will too.

Marcia Judkins

Petro Bowl was great. Friendly fun atomosphere. Fantastic service .. We absolutely loved it!!! Thanks Petro ..we will b back.

Travis McLaurin

Great place and up to date

Amanda Villanueva

Prices are good, food is good, but it could really use am update especially the bowling balls, and it would be nice if there was at least one employee that was older the age of 18, just to keep things in order.

Daniel Syed

A little worn down, but still loads of fun bring the whole family for a great time, check out the all you can bowl special every Friday at 10pm.

Jens Drachmann

When you walk up to the front doors, everything is dirty .All of the glass is filth. It has spider webs in and dirt and grime all over the front doors it's nasty.

Adele Downs

Very nice


We recently visited and had fun bowling but it was very dirty and smelly inside. Offers a decent selection of food and drinks as well. It's the only bowling alley in the area I believe so worth a visit if you like to play.

Cynthia Williams

Slow on food, they were understaffed!

Chad Bazinet

All the lines are messed up

Blaine williams

We brought the kids here because someone was having a birthday party. Upon entering, you immediately notice the "stale smell". The place seems a bit dingy, but the actual bowling experience wasn't bad. The alley worked great and the kids had a blast. These funny looking dinosaur things are provided for small kids to help them roll the ball. Because of that, even our 2 year old had a blast. The staff was very friendly. The pizza was a bit bland and cardboard-like in my opinion, but the kids liked it... which I suppose is what matters. Overall, we had fun and the kids were upset that we had to leave.

jasmine Cox

Great place to be just wish the music was louder on Friday nights

char carradine

Very nice to bowl.


Fun times. We experienced several glitches & had to switch lanes. But they were very accommodating.

Anthony Ferdinando

Bowling here is fun, and it's kept very clean. The food service is a little slow though.

Wayne Goff

I hate their bowls the r rejects of the rejects not even sure if they're made for humans or even earthlings

nerd at heart

Went there for a date and it was good. They do get very busy on weekends, and for glow in the dark bowling. Other than that had no problem getting food and drinks.

khadijah tomas

Awesome place fast fun

tiffmarie 89

We had alot of fun had a few issues and it seemed to bother them when we needed help but otherwise fun

Ashley Rene

The menu has expanded and they have yummy options. When you first walk in from outside it smells like smoke. The guy at the counter when we left couldn't find my fiance's shoe so he had to ask for help. Otherwise a great experience.

christa fox

Had a great time with my grandkids

Queen Lizzy

All 4 snack bar workers need to be fired and replaced with 2 harder working better paid staff. Worker was sitting on counter while filling drinks. They served us hollow mozzarella sticks... They quit frying oreos and beignets 2 hours before closing so they could clean sweets fryer. We waited 5 mins for 2 waters. Also bumpers are broken on many lanes. Soda machine wouldn't take coins. Change machine is broken.

Darla richardson

Family friendly venue for all ages

matt Smith

Very old. Poor lane care. Kid bumpers are manual and often broken

Dani Thibodeaux

The balls kept getting stuck and had to wait for help longer than 30minutes and when they did come the employees seem cranky.

Mona Lynn MG

Great lanes well maintained

Braden Edwards

The overall atmosphere was okay facility wise. Bowling was fun and the pizza was surprisingly really good!

Rita Guttirrez

Big Brother and Big Sister event at the Petro was perfect. Friendly service and lots of fun for everyone. Thank you Petro!

Veronica Thibodeaux

Family friendly, and fun

Holly Evans

its a fun place to go and bowl with your friends

Brandi Crosby

Was fun with the $10 for unlimited games. But there was no "neon" or glow lights for neon bowling, only made darker

Oris Latour

Ashley is a very rude manager. We came to have fun not deal with a rude unhappy person...Employees also say she is mean all the time. Get a job that's not dealing with people.

dugan burleigh

Fun until my gf broke up with me because I suck at bowling

Jhah Coquus

It had a ton of bowling lanes and a wide variety of food on the menu. The only bad thing is that they require purchase of bowling shoes sometimes for some people and other times they tell you you dont have to pay for shoes.

Angela Granger

Its a little dated but a great place for family fun! We love going here and spending time with all our family members from 3years old to 65+. They have helpers for rhe younger bowlers.


It’s funnn

Randy Crane

Good bowling center. Older establishment, but well ran.

Derek Fruge

Had a great time!

Brandon Darby

Stopped in on a weekend getaway and had the time of our lives. The prices were almost half of what we pay here locally. It wasn't over crowded at all. It is a bit of an older place but that's the kind of stuff that keeps the prices down. On the other hand for it being a older place it is very well maintained! Definitely a must if you're in Lake Charles looking for something to do.

Mandy Dantin

Had fun staff was nice

Roger Reyes

Clean bowling alley, new shoes not old and worn out. Had bowling assistance for my 3 and 4 year old. Kid's loved it. Definitely be back when in town!
