Kevin Kickbusch

Lanes work great,. Good food and good service!

Katie Marshall

We have a laid-back fun time here

Carie Decker

As always, whenever in Midland we have drinks and dinner. Great place!


Me and my buddy's hung out in the bar. It was a good time. The staff is pretty friendly. The only reason I took away one star is because I put my quarters in the dart board machine and it ate them. Other then that it was nice.

Missy Carroll

People are very nice ,foods good and every thing is clean.

David Bock

Someone won $10,000 playing Michigan Lottery Club Keno at Northern Lanes Recreation, now that is a STRIKE!

Jenny Chery

They take really good care of the people with Dissabilties. They are nice and always giving tips on how to do better.

Chris Hermanns

David Warren

A bit outdated, but good prices and very good service and pizza is delicious.

The most disgusting bar in Midland county. Hard liquor comes from a soda gun. Play pool? Bring your own cue and chalk.

Took my 2 and 6 year olds and their customer service was soooooo terrible. Everytime we ask him a question about something we got an attitude. They were on the phone the whole time. I don't recommend this place at ALL...

I loved the atmosphere but I hated how slippery the lanes are. I've only been to one other bowling alley with lanes as slippery as these

Tanya Kovach

Mike Beck

Lots of fun for all ages

LeeAnn Whaley

Small bowling facility. Normal crappy music and too greasy food

Pete W

Food is great. Try the pizza. Beer is cheap - $7.50 a pitcher.

Jamey Richards

Kaden Thompson

It k

Caleb Mapes

Good bowling, cheap, customer service is not so good

Chaen S

It's a great place to go with some friends and have a drink or bowl

Matthew Foster

Great lanes, good rental shoes, and the alley-provided balls are good enough. In terms of bowling, it's as good of an experience as you'll get, and the lanes themselves are in great shape. They do have a restaurant attached (but I've never ordered food), as well as sand volleyball and a small arcade. Been going there off & on for almost two decades, and have always had a good bowling experience.

jeff skosich

Great staff. Servers, counter, mechanics, bowling ball tech ( (Scott Lesser( 300 game 3/28)).Thursday night league has 10 or more bowlers that could compete with the guys you see on

Laurel green

Great time bowling with my son and his family

Heidi O'Dell

Advertised cosmic bowling, called and verified, get there and no cosmic bowling. No apology, just nope we don't do it Saturdays just Fridays. Use to be hoppin, not anymore. Although newly remodeled, and nice lanes. Not enough staff.

Amber Storey

Rose Beehr

Melissa Hilliker

hello my name is

The food isn't that great

Jared Watters

Went there last night and got to bowl one game before they kicked us out early. We were the only lane playing and they shut us down with one frame left to go... It's almost like they went out of their way to make us feel unwelcome. They made it seem like I was bothering them anytime I would try to order a drink or anything. Never going back.

Matt ratkos

It's an ok spot. But the building needs some TLC. It's getting run down .. had a funcky smell to it now

Selena Swantek

Misty Wesmer

The thing I didn't like about here is that while bowling my ball was soo dirty and I found a couple scratches on my ball that were never there before. Besides that it was nice.

Abbey Kay Gransden

Amazing!! Awesome Staff and very nice lanes.

Alex Dupuis

They want to charge a arm and a leg to play a game. They tricked my girlfriend and made her think she was buying two games when we only bought one for 7 dollars. Im being kind with the one star and if i could id do zero. Also customer service is a joke. Hopefully this place goes out of buisness because the entire place is rigged and a joke.

Marcie Cervantes

Paid by the hour for 2 lanes. Both of which kept screwing up. The hour started the minute we paid. Waited like 15 mins for the lady to fix it and she kept saying it was fine. The pins weren't registering. She finally changed our lane but we lost our time.
