Great bowling alley and great prices

Chelsea Donnelly

Bowling is fine. But I am still upset about the fact that my $7 pickle chips consisted of 12 small pickle chips, and was told that was an accurate sized portion.

I don't even like bowling, but I was so impressed with the fun atmosphere and customer service when I came for a friends birthday, that I convinced my friends to join a league! Now that the league is over, we still choose this place as our 'go to' if we feel like bowling. Be aware that it's kind of a hole in the wall - but it's great! They have a cute bar behind the bowling alley and the drinks are pretty darn cheap. There is a very eclectic group of patrons. They also have the best guacamole!! My only complaint is that sometimes my bowling ball takes a while to come back - but that's part of the charm! I swear!!

Micah Baker

I just had my Church's Youth Group here for an activity after our annual youth day, and the service was wonderful. The lanes are clean, and despite the rennovations we felt very comfortable and the young people had fun. We planned this all at the last minute and you wouldn't even had thought that the way they were so organized

shawn atnip

Personal reasons with a couple of the barmaids. And they're bad decisions. Bowling side looks nice though.

Kristen Boura

It's kind of annoying that most nights all dart boards are taken for leagues

Daniel Myers

Fun place for all ages

Renee Simpson

We enjoy this little corner spot by our house it's clean, and the ppl that work there are a fun crowd. We come up here and eat often the food is awesome BUT we ordered carry out and definitely a difference my buffalo chicken wrap was soggy with hardly any chicken in it and the lettuce was old and dark green I asked for ranch on the side and I didn't even get any, our fries on 3 different orders were definitely not cooked all the way. we asked for ranch for our chicken tenders, cheese Stix and fries we got 1

Khairul Hasan

WASTE OF TIME. It is ironic how this place is called a “family” bowling center yet it is not accommodating for a family. First off you have to be 21 or older to even bowl. This is the only bowling alley in MI that has this rule. Second, the alley is so small I doubt it can even fit two families.

Keller Coleman

Best bowling alley. We have been going since they opened years ago... Great place to have a. Birthday party...

Dawson Barcey

The owner Jason is hand on and runs a good alley. Don’t let a gem

Went for my granddaughters baby shower. Girls went to party, men bowled. Excellent wait staff and wood lanes that brought back memories. Haven't seen wood lanes in long time. Nice prices on beer. Have to add their pretzels were amazing

T'Challa Bryant

Test Email

We had a birthday party on Saturday and had a blast. The entire staff was GREAT! Jason the owner really took care of us. The bar tenders did a great job of taking care of all of us adult kids too. Thank you sir!

desicratedone .

Prices were very reasonable. The place was small but roomy. Food was very good too.

David cox

Great bar food. GREAT Bar service. Fun place to hang out with friends and family

Raven Blackfall

Bar is open till 2. Great bartenders. Eight dart boards a few pool tables and two shuffleboards.

Mohammed Hussain

Horrible experience. Never going here again. Go to Bowl One just four miles north. Better lanes, better service, etc.

Chris Nicholas

Decent prices, lanes aren't in great shape, and cheap beer.

Kathy Mcguckin

Bowling is a good way to get the family together for a fun time. Also has a nice bar and a decent amount of craft beer in bottles and cans. They also have darts and other games to keep you coming back. Been coming here for years and with a remodel updating the lane area and a very good food program, you can't go wrong.

Randall Forster

Cool, kind of secret large bar with shuffle board and stuff behind all that bowling fun. Feels like it's 1976 in there. Not a bad thing.

Dejon Remsey

Never fails me my second home

Jaye Dewan

Cant even get information on returning leagues. No phone calls with information when they restart. Cant get a single person on the phone when you call to confirm anything because not a single person who works there has a clue either. Very disorganized to say the least. I'll be looking for a different house to spend my money.

Virginia Ford

Madison Park bowling alley is awesome, and it's the HOT spot for shuffleboard. Love your place. Jason is the best !!

Bob Phillips

Also a great place for shuffle board and darts. Server's are top notch.

sara garvey

They have a nice new floor, the lanes could be better, as there are more than one with chunks of wood missing. But overall I've had a good experience each time I've bowled there

Jon Gondek

Fun time With my friends 3 games including shoes for $12.

Sarah Auten

I love this place. I play trivia every Monday night with friends and the head cook is Awesome! Always comes out to check to see if everyone is satisfied and always thanks us for coming. The bartenders are super sweet too!

Marie W.

Great , at the time you could only order outside food to be delivered. I wish they could open a kitchen

Garth Spader

I didn't bowl there, I just went to the bar

Alan Chunn

Great Staff & plenty to do besides bowl.

Krystle Carter

I love this place! The staff is great and the Parmesan Garlic fries are to die for.

Anna Bustamante

My boyfriend and I love this place. We frequent their bar for pool and darts. They have so much to do! Service and food are great as well! Highly recommend to others :)

Tina Tusset

Good place to bowling.

Louis Garcia

Friendly people and good wait staff. Even though I couldn't play pool because a table was down it was a good time

natasha schurg

Fun for birthdays

Judy Johnston

They have friendly staff and everyone has fun here. Lots of leagues to chose from.

Matthew H.

I wouldn't say this is a true family place unless your family are all 16+ or a bunch of adults looking for a place to bowl and drink. There's only one metal guide frame for kids and the ball selection is slim. The prices are definitely reasonable so if you can put aside a bit if rough and tumble atmosphere then you can easily have a couple hours of fun, preferably without the kids.

Randa Fuller

Every time I go here always have a wonderful great time

Josh Sanderson

Staff is great and bowling prices are too.

Joseph McPherson

Clean and fun environment with Very friendly staff.

Charles Taylor

A fantastic value for the money. Real wood lanes, impossible to find! I definitely visit there again.

Leslie Lopez

Very nice staff and place. They offered my group a free game because we waited to get a lane after leagues. Hard to find parking though after limited spots available.

Laelah Ljucovic

Friendly and helpful staff, great prices, and overall was just a great experience for my 5 year olds birthday. The food was good too especially the pretzel sticks and cheese. Will definitely be our go-to place for bowling from now on!

D Harper

Great place to play pool and good service


Love this place!!! The staff is phenomenal! Food is great! Atmosphere is awesome and clean! Bowling, darts, shuffleboards, and pool what more do you want?!?! Oh and the drinks aren't skimpy by any means!!! The owner is a great guy as well!!!

Keith Johnson

Great Place and waitresses are sexy, couldn't waited long enough for the grill to open up. Long islands are the bomb.

Victor BROWN



Great Place to bowl , really brings out the actual fun in being a good or lousy bowler.

irmarie mercado

My son has the best bowling

Rosa Moreno-Jackson

Fun spot to play Shuffleboard! Staff is awesome and food is excellent! If you like spicy food, try the Diablo Burger... It's a must! You'll love it! The salads are excellent too! They also have a bowling alley, pool tables and darts.

mike fockler

Great bar and the bar tenders are awesome. Food is actually pretty good especially for a bowling alley bar.

Amanda DeGain

This place is so much fun. It is so underrated. Yes, the bowling alley part is small but that is part of it's charm. They have a jukebox that you can play your own music nice and loud. In the back they have a full service bar with really good food. They also have tons of darts, shuffleboard, and pool. It is a fun spot to hang with cheap prices. I may be partial because I grew up in the neighboring city, but I love this place!

Kelly Kolassa

Always a good time & something to do. Have played pool, darts & bowled there.


Nice place to Bowl, Food is very good for Bowling alley /Bar If you like playing pool, darts or shuffle board this place is for you Decent amount of HD TV's and jukebox can play many songs

weston mcmorris

The service n food here is awesome. Love it!!!

Candle S

Price was right, poor ball selection, lanes not oiled properly. Only ONE child ramp. Poor seating arangement. Must be friendly with Neighbors in next lanes over. Three because if you are playing for fun it's great, for sport look elcewhere.

Greg Davenport

Good food nice lanes and friendly staff

Latisha Edgar

Loved this place. Everyone was very nice and helpful. Pleasant atmosphere .

Gerald P

It's relatively the same as every other bowling alley just depends on if you enjoy the food more or if you enjoyed the employees more or the atmosphere I definitely recommend coming here if you want to bowl and checking it out.

andrew hanson

Nice place to bowl and they have a nice bar in the back with plenty of games like pool, darts, shuffle board, etc.

Jesse McCann

Been going here since I was a kid. LOVE this place. Reminds me of old times.

Amanda Ratajczak

We had a business holiday party there and had the whole place to ourselves! Great bowling alley, considerate and gracious staff and very fun atmosphere with lots of games to play!

Lonnie Taylor

Pretty good place for a family or date

Bill Gregory

Great food and service

Mantis Royalface76

I am Bowling.. I am PBA. Just my life.. fun life. the Royal Way


They have a great selection of beer. Good burgers, lots of dart boards, shuffle boards, and a few pool tables.

Amanda Crocker

Very small, but over all a good experience

Sonya Lane

Went to the bar area for food and pool.

Patrick Cowan

Friendly staff, fair prices, the bar is top notch.


Had a really nice time . Customer service was wonderful.

Cora Webster

Nephew had a ball for his 4th Birthday and the food was really great

Kathleen Malczynski

Good time. 8 Lanes


The place needs updating. It appears about 8 lanes are closed with tables in the center of them.The bowling prices are a little above average, especially for a place that needs updating. The female general manager came to me and claimed that my children were not being watched, as I was sitting and watching them while eating. She stated one of my children slammed down a bowling ball then kicked it with their foot. I asked her which child she couldn't tell me, however my 4 year old confessed.. Not too family friendly to me!

Corey Mattic

Fun and friendly

Craig Calhoun

Drinks are very reasonable

Kathleeen Kosa

Nice establishment very friendly Lousy bowling league was a lot of fun.

Jerry Skowronski

Food was good

Ray Podowski

Found pin for fowling game

Ms Freek show

Car acting up? Bring it to them and they will scope it for free and in most cases tell you what the problem is

Angel Brock

Great food, great prices, great workers and overall great atmosphere!!! I will definitely be back! The bathroom needs some work.

Matt Gambill

Called and asked if I could reserve a lane for the next morning, rep said they had available lanes from 1230-2:30 and I accepted so he asked my name and took it down. Came in the next day and waited with my family at desk for 10 mins. Went to the bar to ask about service and the lady snapped at me and stated they don't take reservations and they didn't have any lanes available until 2. I took my family and left. I can't understand why the lady got mad at me...she didn't even apologize for the misunderstanding. Bowling allies are a dime a dozen, I suggest going elsewhere.

Evan Bell

I've been to nearly every bowling alley in Metro Detroit and this is, by far, the best. All of the staff go out of their way for you and are friendly every visit. Lanes are well-conditioned. Best bowling alley bar in Michigan with a great selection, numerous dart boards, pool tables, and shuffleboard games. This bar area is 21+ at all times, which is greatly appreciated. Bowling is a family-friendly activity and it's nice to be able to escape that environment by taking a few steps over to the bar. There aren't many lanes, but this give the alley a more intimate, neighborhood feel. I love this place and I'll be a life-long patron. 12/10

meghan ponka

Great food!! They have pool tables!! The wait staff is amazing!!

Bob D

Jason and his staff go above and beyond making people feel welcome in their establishment. I'm proud to be part of Madison Park Bowl over the past 20 years. They like to work with local businesses like Pizza Connection in the past years always take care of their customers and employees

Denise Forsythe

Awesome place!! I love that they have all sort of activities, i.e ; darts; bowling; shuffle board; bowling and a bar with food. However, It's a bit expensive for the quantity/number of pieces of food you get in the appitizers!!!

Aaron Brock

Loved it

Kelly Wheeler

Fun bowling, pretty good food. I think they have quite a few leagues there

Derek Nacker

Small place but staff is nice and the bar/lounge is awesome. No kids under 2q allowed in lounge but has a ot of games to have fun while drinking if not bowling

David Lee

Real Nice place great envelopes for darts, bowling, shuffle board & just cool to hang out at. Love this place!

Cody Yettaw

This place is a hidden gem. Clean, nice lanes, great staff, etc. The bowling ally is a bit outdated but it's age adds to its charm.

Tammy Mazure

We played pool and the tables were pretty nice. The food and service was great!!

Teri Evans

I made a reservation a month early for my birthday party. We arrived the day of to be told they don't do reservations. and luckily nobody was here or else we would've had to wait for a free lane. it was a guy who worked the register who i feel was pretty rude and sarcastic. Even though the drinks were pricey but really good we won't be returning because we didn't feel comfortable at all here.

joe brummel

Great place to spend time with friends bowling, playing darts or pool, or just hanging out. Good food, good atmosphere, and the best service around.

Kevin Fick

Awesome place for shuffleboard, bowling and darts

Joshua Nixon

Great Place to bowl!!! Very comfortable atmosphere and great staff with great food.. I hate to give this bowling alley a favorable review because I don't want it to be crowded, but this is a great place to be....

Ed Ensign

Great Place, Food and Service, Jason the owner is totally dedicated to running a good , clean establishment that has something for the entire family..Every dollar spent here is worth it

Josh Alpert

This bowling center is not adequately maintained. Three different lanes could not return balls consistently (which means their equipment is covered in an oily grease from not properly maintaining the machinery), and my personally-owned ball was covered with filth from the lanes. I bowl right handed... look at the amount of grime on my hands after 2 games... this is truly awful, your hands should not get dirty like this from bowling. It’s a fun environment, coupled with original wood lanes, but the bowling experience itself is tragic. UPDATE: the owner has responded to this review with a reply which would indicate they will take steps to clean up the lanes and machines. I’m not looking to damage anyone’s business, so I am willing to come back and bowl again and if the machines are in better condition and my ball and hands aren’t covered with grime, I will update my review accordingly. UPDATE: I have been back to bowl and conditions were significantly improved, the lanes had clearly been cleaned up.

Shawn Bustamante

Cool place but took forever to get a drink...don't go thirsty!

Patrick Brooks

Bowling is pretty cheap, but lane conditions are pretty poor. Good if you are bowling just for fun.

Michael Scott

Fun place to bowl in a budget. The staff on Saturday nights are really nice and helpful.

S Bana

It was ok. They did what they could to accommodate our group. At least we were able to bowl right when we got there on a Saturday night. For that I am thankful ; )

jeffery cottrell

Great place to go and enjoy time with family ,good food,fun time and a excellent host and very friendly place to be.

Jeffrey Caloni

Nice place for a fun time,its like the tardis lol,its bigger on the inside. Good food cold drinks. Sometimes the waitstaff is alittle slow but the place gets hopping in the evening.

Norm Korpi

It's a bar bowling alley they have darts pool tables shuffleboard staff is is good the food's good most of the time the service is great those slow when they get busy

Ann Marta

Attended for a bday party, was a perfect space and had a great time

Rohan Patil

Multiple issues here. 1. even if u book the lane, u will not get it on time. u will basically go and get in the queue and wait long time. 2. The keyboard/control board does not work and u have to talk to staff every time. This essentially also takes out ur playing time (only 1 or 2 people working there who can help, so good luck getting their attention) 3. The lanes are in worst condition I have seen in the area. the marking is barely visible. the slope of the ramp also seems uneven. Overall apart from the price, nothing good here in our experience.

Jennifer Howland

Fun times

Hvy Hx

This place just has very friendly employees and the owner is a great guy who cool to talk to as well. I highly recommend this place for when you want to go chill at the bar bowl or play pool with friends.

Karina Audige

Great prices. Needs a good updating, however still a lot of fun.

MD Munna

Dukkitho. Very disappointed

Danielle Williams

Very clean nice lanes and good service!


Good atmosphere but the lanes were not properly working( kept malfunctioning)


I'm a regular at Madison Park and I absolutely love it the food is good the people are fun and the drinks are strong! It's like a big ole family!

Steve Barman

They have tasty bar food now. Nice employees, good customer service. Friendly atmosphere. Good Jukebox.

Audrey Clark

When my kids were younger we used to bowl there a lot, even got the "points card". Sure they were, at the time, out dated and in need of repairs and renovations but they were kind and accommodating and 2 blocks from home. My kids quickly grew out of bowling and went onto other things. Now that they are newly young adults(18/21) we have taken up darts and even shuffleboard. We love it and have even invested in our own darts (bar ones suck....if you play you'll agree). I thought that we could again support a local (walking distance) business but cannot. They only have these fun games in their bar section and have stated they will not allow "supervised" youg adults in at anytime. My rant is because the owner stated that, "We are most definitely family friendly". There was nothing friendly about the owners mom whom I spoke with. Rigid and snippy...(& I am being kind) are two words that come to mind. There is no law to this, it is determined by each establishment, I do get it. They actually let an 18 year old in who's on a "dart league". So they clearly can pick and choose the "rules". I just wanted to talk with the "owner" who I was informed was a man and hardly there. His mom (whom I didn't know who she was at the time) only stated her relationship and that she owned it with him once I asked when he'd be available. She just could have handled things differently. They just will not be getting any if our business even when my youngest finally turns 21.

educate them

Great family centered bowling place

Amanda Schneck

Heather was an amazing bartender highly outdated i mean who in metro Detroit cant find emeinem on the juck box

Matthew Thero
