REVIEWS OF Garden Street Bowl IN Maine

Best food in downtown Kennebunk! Best draft beer selection in the area with tons of local beers and rotating taps. Great professional bartenders. High end food, 10 bowling lanes, game room, 25 beers on tap. What more can you ask for?

Rob Cardeiro

Fun, fun, fun! We had a staff retreat and went here for team-building. Great beer selection. Super helpful staff (we're not bowlers). The food looked great, alas we had plans to eat elsewhere. Next time

Dan

Place is sweet and by far the nicest bowling alley I've ever been to. Decent food and good beer options. Lanes/seating is a little tight but not the end of the world. Definitely a good spot.

Eileen Coll

Its a bowling alley. Food drinks & very nnice staff people.

Jennifer F

This place is great! The owner was very accommodating and made sure everything was the way we wanted it. We had snack food and milkshakes - both delicious! I really liked that they let you eat near the lanes and had table service. I was excited about their on tap selection. The place is family friendly and very clean. They also had bumpers and ramps for my little ones. I would definitely recommend this place to my family and friends. Tip : if it’s a rainy day call ahead bc there aren’t a ton of lanes. Put your name on the list and enjoy the food. It’s a small place but what they have is great!!! :)

Good time. Good food (at the pub, restaurant, or while you play) excellent service, clean amenities. We were there on a Sunday night when a live band (with an amazing young lead guitarist) was playing

Great atmosphere, fairly expensive drinks.... Could use some sound proofing.

Lori Flynn

Our family had a wonderful time playing a variety of games at Garden Street Bowl. Corn hole, Ms. Pac.Man, bowling, skee ball and so much more available for guests to enjoy. Great atmosphere.

steve goodwin

Amazing food and fun to bowl 10 pin!

Ben Valentino

Great atmosphere, great food!

Jacqueline Mahoney

This is the cleanest bowling alley I have ever been to. The inside of the building itself is beautifully designed. I felt like I was at a high class bowling alley made for the queen. There is a restaurant in there that people were actually eating at. The fact the people went to the restaurant at a bowling alley and didn’t even bowl says a lot about the establishment. I didn’t get any food because I decided to get a few drinks instead, but the menu looked delicious. Next time I go I will drink less, enjoy the food, and bowl more. If you aren’t a sad lonely person like me then you should go here on a date! Perfect atmosphere for it. Romantic lighting, what I assume to be great food, good prices, and booze. BAM your welcome.

Sunday was my first visit, we had lunch. The food was good, I expected much better from what others have said. Louder then I expected but then it is a bowling alley. Its an excellent facility and a real plus for the area. I will be returning to bowl with family.

Roy Hebert

Outstanding.

Danna Smail

Mary

What a great idea! Wish we had this in Kennebunk long ago-great food and classy bowling!

Brian Crowley

Brent C

Upscale for sure. Food is nothing I would want to eat while trying to bowl a game more of a sit down and eat menu then a bowl a frame and snack menu.

Ethan Jellison

Dylan Trott

Work right down the road. Amazing place to grab a quick bite and a beer!

Tracy Johnson

Fun bowling, and food is fantastic!!! Kid friendly and awesome game room as well... Fun for big & little kids...lol

Michelle Spezzano

Great set up, dinner, bowling, cornhole, kids arcade corner...definitely a family place, and it was late Sunday so it was quiet. The menu was tough for an average family tho in the sense that my husband likes straight up home cooking and well kids too...the menu is a fine dining menu that was very different, details in the dishes include a lot of different foods and spices. My husband ended up having a steak caesar salad because there was nothing on the menu that was ok with him other than that or a big steak which was expensive...the rest was too foo foo for him. I ordered an amazing chicken dish with great flavor but halfway thru the first stuffed breast I realized it was crunchy because it was frozen raw. I was so scared I was going to be sick for the next 24 hours and I was on a weekend trip for baseball so that was the last thing i wanted. They were very good about it, took it off my bill and gave me a free salad but I couldn't eat much of it at that point. Im sure this isn't the norm but what can I say...

I love the people,the food,the happy hour!

Charlotte Kinkade

I love this new place! It's going to become a regular family activity for us! It's a clean facility. And the French fries are super yummy!

Cynthia Voisine

Too expensive. Shuts off in the middle of your game. I wouldn't go again.

Our experience was not the best. If you've been to places like Kings or Bayside Bowl you will be disappointed. We arrived on a busy-ish Saturday evening, front desk guy says it's a two hour wait for a lane. For only 10 lanes that is fair, there is a restaurant, it's easy to kill time. We put our name in for a lane and go see the hostess. She is very nice and give us a 2 top. The restaurant was not very busy, 3 out of 15 tables occupied. Yet we waited 15 minutes before a waitress even asked us if we wanted drinks. We ordered the duck poutine and a burger. The gravy tasted and looked liked it came from a jar and I'm 75% sure the duck was just dark meat chicken. The burger had no seasoning and just tasted charred. We asked for our check, and it took the waitress 10 minutes to bring it to us, 10 minutes to come back and take our credit card. When our lane was ready it had not been cleared and was full of empty glasses, someone came up as we were putting our shoes on and asked if this mess was ours, we said no and she cleaned it up quickly. This is not traditional 10-pin bowling, the pins are on strings. Also the auto-score was consistently off. I bowled and strike multiple times and it counted only 9. Our waiter brought us the wrong beer, it was 15min after we placed it but he still apologized and bought the right one. When we cashed out with him the wrong beer was on the bill and it was more expensive. He apologized again and said he fix it when he ran my card. He did not fix it and ran my card for the more expensive one. So all and all, will not return.

Great atmosphere and wait staff. Unique food choices, kid friendly. Great spit to hang with friends or bowl with the family.

Robert Lloyd

Very nice, clean, updated bowling. Great food and bar. Fun place to go for a couple hours.

Brett Conway

Atmosphere was cool, food was amazing!

Lisa M

So psyched to have this awesome bowling facility and restaurant in our town! Even if you just want to go and have a drink and meal it’s a super fun place where the locals gather!

Bethany Bryan

Brittany N

As good as any Portland restaurant. Honestly had the best food I have had in years at this place. Still haven't bowled there tbh, too obsessed with the food/drink choices.

Darrin Weigle

Amazing place is a gem for the surrounding community. I visit very often! My only issue is that the lanes’ runways are not regulation length (too short)... and that throws off my game. But otherwise, a top notch venue!

Bowling was great fun in this small setting and the burgers were even better.

I went for the first time last night. I love this place! The service was wonderful, food was amazing, and it is a great place for families. We said numerous times how it felt like we were in an urban area of New York. What a great addition to Kennebunk.

Marc Tardif

Very nice little bowling alley and restaurant. A little too hipster for me, tho. Don't expect mozzarella sticks and buffalo wings. Friendly staff.

Kelly Erin

Sweet set up, great food, awesome arcade, and of course the bowling party with bar service

Michael Stephens

Hardys Haven Poultry

Entertainment and great food in kennebunk. The menu is top notch! Excellent beer selection. Bowling lanes are modern and very well maintained.

Went Tuesday afternoon! Loved everything about it!! Had a great time bowling drinks were great, service great, appetizers delicious! Can’t wait to go back..maybe get a meal next time!!

Tom Gramling

The food is great. The beer selection is pretty solid and there's bowling!

Chris H

Chickpea burger was delicious, bartender was friendly, and they had good arcade games with decent prices on them. The place also looked very modern chic for a bowling alley. It's nice to see a bowling alley/arcade that is also a wonderful restaurant and has more of an adult, double-date type feel. It isn't all gross and rundown. You feel like it's nice enough you can wear your high heels at night but also play some pinball.

allan ahola

Stopped in for lunch on friends recommendation glad we did. Good food and drink selection. Waitstaff was on their game. Will be back to bowl a few strings and eat again.

johnny price

This place is awesome! The tap list is good and the food is too. The dipping sauses for the fries are next level. Possibly the cleanest bowling alley I've ever seen as well

Andrew McClement

Fun place, great food with a solid beer selection.

Josh Perreault

Tyler Abbott

Big ball bowling, amazing food, great service, arcade with skee ball, buck hunter, pinball, and other games. Good for sit down dinner, drinks and a fun time. Definitely worth checking out

Michael S

If you LOVE specialty drinks and a wide variety of beer selections this is the place to hang out in the Kennebunk area. I would highly recommend to anyone coming down from Portland or up from Portsmouth to give this place a try. It is very much worth the trip! And if you enjoy bowling that's an added bonus. While it is a bit loud while you first arrive (think bowling alley noise levels) it soon fades away to an average noise level for talking within a group. I don't let it hinder me and this coming from someone with hearing problems but with assisted hearing aides. Whether you love to bowl or not, this is a fantastic venue for small or large parties or just to hang out and enjoy the drinks, food and ambiance!

Keith Williams

Susan Crosby

Emily C. Jones

The food and the restaurant part were unexpected. A unique selection, especially given the venue! Atmosphere was much nicer than the food tasted. Food presentation was delightful, though. Our server was wonderful. Bowling is by the hour, not by the game. Shoe rental is extra. It's a bit loud and it's popular so you might have a wait. They provide gutter guards and ramps for those who need them. There are a few options for your scoring graphics, which was neat. Nice to have traditional 10 pin bowling in this area.

Clint Marshall

Very good food, very good fun. Nice bowling facility. The restaurant must be somewhat noisy.

Samantha Shay

Jesse Eaton

The lanes were nice however very small and the moment our time expired the waitress made us move our food down to the tables and move all of our stuff out even though more than half of the lanes were still open. she then proceeded to give us our check and said if we wanted everything else you can start another tab with a different waitress.

Make sure to order any food BEFORE you bowl, as with most bowling alleys. There's a small arcade area that's inexpensive and has enough games for fun

Great fun!

Patrick Joos

cool, reasonably price bowling with really good food and drinks.

Kirk K

Food and service is terrible. Bowling is fine. The business is new so maybe give it some time, but they have a lot of work to do. So far my 4 experiences not been good regarding food and service particularly for the price.

Anna McElhany

David Pikcilingis

We had a great time bowling and playing the games in the back room. We ended up staying for supper as well. The food was very good and reasonably priced. I would highly reccomend this place.

Stopped in for lunch on friends recommendation glad we did. Good food and drink selection. Waitstaff was on their game. Will be back to bowl a few strings and eat again.

I love ten pin bowling and these guys did this place just right. It has an awesome restaurant, with windows to look out at the action on the lanes. Some cool arcade machines and other activities in the back and the bowling itself is brilliant and offers several playing modes so even if your with kids you can do Angry Bird bowling etc. It has an awesome bar with many great beers on tap and the service is top notch!

Wayne Giro

Haven't ten pin bowled since I was stationed in Montana (USAF) 1985 mixed doubles with my wife. Our friends and my wife and I had a great time. For not being regulation lanes it was okay. Quite a bit pricey compared to other area alley's. Paying by the hour is not a choice I'd make again. Pushed the by the hour play, wasn't offered a by the string option, $30.00 for 1 and a half strings.

Philip Royer

Food was far beyond my expectations, great atmosphere

Cathy Hehman

Great place to gather! Upscale dining with a super staff and amazing food. The bowling was fun, easy, and the chic decor made for a great experience...definitely recommend... a gem for sure!

Cathy Hood

Went on a Sunday evening with our two teenagers and had so much fun! Prices were reasonable, facility and equipment appear brand new. Lots of parking. The restaurant portion is set apart from the bowling so you can hear. Nice rustic look with candles so probably a good date spot. Drinks and food were good! We bowled two games, then did shuffleboard, air hockey, skew ball and some video games. Hoping to return for Trivia Tuesday!

The Crushingtons

The food is amazing!!!! Great fun atmosphere. Loved bowling here! Unlike any place I've been. We'll definitely be back!!!!!

Excellent food, good beer selection, fun atmosphere. GSB is major win for Kennebunk. Often crowded, especially on the weekends but it is worth it it and there is plenty to do if you have to wait for a bowling lane.

William Bonner

Great upscale vibe. Not your typical bowling alley

Nathaniel Stevens

Good for family-friendly times

Jacob Buttarazzi

Want to grab a beer with the guys? Go here. Want to go on a fun date? Go here. Want to get the kids out of the house? Take them here. Want a great dinner? Go here. This is a great place to go with a group of friends, I could hang out here all day. It has a slightly upscale vibe to it. It's really the only place in town that offers food and something to do.

Wolfy Sweet

I had a lot of fun there was food bowling and even an arcade the games were fun as well and the rubber duck grabbing game was really easy good for younger children

Jami Kelly

Amazing food/drinks, excellent service & atmosphere. The best part is they don't rush you, so it's a great place to catch up with friends.
