REVIEWS OF Flahertys Arden Bowl IN Minnesota

Lisha Johnson

Had great time, great music. Staff was excellent . Good drinks. Very clean and mellow environment. I enjoyed bowling there!

Ryan Anderson

Great bowling alley. They accomodated our group of Special Olympic bowlers each week as they practiced for their tournament and were great to work with. The bar is great too...nice beer selection and good happy hour deals.

Stacy Welle

We went bowling on a Monday night after 9:30 p.m., so we got 2 dollar games and free shoes, which is an amazing deal! I hadn't been there in a while and was so impressed with all of the fun new additions to a play with on the screen while you bowl to keep you entertained. Such a wonderful idea to have inexpensive gets people in the door and having fun together. The lanes were packed!

Jeff Johnson

Food and service was good.

Jeffrey Hartfiel

Not a big bowler. So can't judge to much. The lanes seem to be fine, the service was good and the food was decent just got apps. Decently priced.

Eric P Bergquist

Great pizza! I also recommend the Farmboy burger and the meatloaf.

Vincent Bystedt

Pretty good price, hasn't been obscenely busy which is great to actually spend time with friends

Mrs. Kibble

They sale my drink. The service was okay. I will return.

Maggie Briggs

This is an awesome place to bring the family and bowl! I brought my 2 and 1 year-old and they out the bumpers up and had a thing to roll the ball down the lane, it was great! Very clean and well lit as well! The only bummer is that the parking directly by the building is small, there is a bigger lot across the street (which is a frontage road). It just made it difficult to maneuver if you are on wheels with a stroller.

Michael Arel

Best bowling alley I've been to in the metro area. Great food and a fun atmosphere. Busy with leagues every night of the week, but a good weekend activity.

Fake O Bitties

Love dollar bowling night!

Karl Gohde

Place is clean and well maintained however website doesn't mention that there are no free Lanes (league only) on Thursday nights despite being open. This is extremely annoying considering they don't take same day reservations.

Tracy Eberly

Great spot for a corporate team building event. Everyone had fun bowling.

Ashir Gupta

Great atmosphere and even though food isn't amazing, the service more than makes up for it.

K kmuney

Been going here 30 years. Love the place.

Jennifer Treadwell

Fun place to bowl, good food, amazing drinks

C Daniel Whatton

My kids love this place, the arcade is growing and the bowling is geared to people of all ages. Great time!

Josh Albers

Best bowing alley in the Shoreview/Arden Hills area.

Piper cruz

Love it there and I love Mike's pro shop, he is like a grandpa to me

Joe Dancho

We used to bowl elsewhere for leagues until last year. Never leaving! Excellent food, great drinks, and great service. Also, they take pride in keeping their lanes in tip-top shape.


Affordable pricing for date nights coupled with delicious food to munch on while beating the competition, perfect combination. Tons of lanes to play on so you don't feel too crowded as well.

Terry Dragich

Great bowling, food drinks and Friday night bingo.

Steve Wendell

Dianne Keller

Ariana Nyman

Great and enthusiastic employees

Cindy Garretson

Local and family owned, bowling alley, bar and restaurant. Family friendly, Friday night bar bingo, great pizza and bar/pub food. Fun for kids if you want to have a pizza and bowling birthday party.


I meet with friends weekly at Flahertys. The bar has multiple TV's to watch sports or whatever. When the Twins, Vikings, Wild etc play they have specials. The food is very good and very reasonably priced. The staff are very friendly.

Maureen Damman

Best darn bowling in town. We love love love their pizza.

Robert Krueger

Good late evening deal with cosmic bowling.

Jessica H

The alley itself was fine, the rest however, was horrible! We went during the day so that might have something to do with it. The pizza was super greesy, no refills for a $3 pop, no meal deals, and worst music ever! The music was probably from the 60s and was so slow it almost put the kids to sleep!

Dan Hedger

Great friendly staff, good food, fair prices. A clean fun environment for adults, kids and families alike. An all around great place to hang out.

scorpio Booker

Fun and a great place to bowl

Katie Peterson

3 games for $43?? That is absurd. We needed up just bowling 1 game because we couldn’t afford 2 more. Bowling has always been a low cost & fun activity until coming across flaherty’s.. why so expensive??

Mia Hanson

What a wonderful place. The people are so friendly. The food is really good, and I like bowling too.

David Graham

They keep it in good shape and a good place to bowl

Pamela Dronen

We had so much fun! Nice staff. Easy to use scoring and bumpers.

Karl Nyquist

Nice place...lots of things to do there

Kevin Kujala

No open lanes....wasted my time. Went to pinz instead

Glenn Harvey

People and employees are very friendly.

Professional Reviews and NEWS

I used to be a regular here 2 to 3 times a week for late night "dollar" bowling. It was usually packed after 10 and usually got out of there spending less than $20 with bowling, beer and food. The price has TRIPLED per game just overnight. They say 4 people can play 2 games in an hour but that's not true, unless you're speed bowling. The time I was in and found out about the price increase the place was dead was wondering if they were even open as I drove up . Only had 3 lanes going other people came in saw prices and left as I did. Bring back dollar nights !!

Sharyl Deckard

Clean bowling alley. Pricing went from $5 a game per person to $12 per hour for any amount or people at 930pm. The man behind the counter told us about the difference and that if we waited 15 minutes more it would be $12 for the three of us to bowl 2 games instead of $45. Prices included shoes. That was nice of him because he didnt need to tell us about that.

Anthony Williamsvvhgg7 vff bb

Great staff and good bar food

craig giebel

Really good pizza. Go on half price Wednesday at lunch

Eric and Liz Graskey

Enjoyed grear prices on customer appreciation night. $12 per hour per lane, $2 shoes, and drink socials. Fun place!

Janine Langemo

Our favorite bowling alley! Been coming here for many years. They also have a nice bar that's separated from the lanes by a glass wall. Decent beer selection and their throwback Colorado Bulldogs are so yummy! They also have a great menu and really good food....esp. their pizza! Outstanding & half price every Wednesday! There's a game arcade, too. Recently, we were at a newer & much larger bowling alley. Didn't care for that place at all compared to Flaherty's..... but we did love the seating at the lanes! Loveseats & a coffee table rather than the hard, traditional seats. That would be a great upgrade for Flaherty's but regardless, this is an excellent choice for bowling! Nice birthday party packages, too!


Great time here! Especially during the furry events!

Mike DeOtis

Fun for everyone!


Bowling was fun and the pizza was delicious, the best I've had at a bowling alley!!

Jacqueline Brand

Lanes are well oiled and the ball return doesnt chew up your ball. Bar, game area and pro shop all in one place. Many fun bowling nights and specials.

IFBB Pro Mary Stockbridge

We were here for a children's birthday party. Nice staff and a big, clean party room. The bowling was fun but wish they had more ramps. It appeared they only had 3 for the whole alley. Otherwise it was good and nicely updated keeping to its traditions. Their pizzas, half on on Wednesdays, are the best! The cheese and sauce they use are hard to beat. It is the best kept secret in town. We also love the coaches, Craig and Tom. Nice guys who offer a lot of good tips. We will join a league when we have the chance.

Andrew Harms

Really nice lanes and great party rooms!


Awesome arcade! The bowling is fun and cheap, not to mention the food is good

Dan M

Great place to bowl and eat..lanes are good, food is good as service is top notch. New carpet monitors and scoring system so then place looks Greg. Would have gotten 5 stars but table monitors are at an angle so only 1 person at the table can see the screen. Im left shaking my head at this decision. Good thing they can pull the screws, rotate to a proper angle and fix. Once that is done you will get 2 more stars.

Stephanie Potter

Game cards are a good idea in the arcade, but like with all electronics, can have their faults. Another, more knowledgeable employee had to assist in redeeming the ticket points for prizes, since the card didn't register at first.

Paul Barthol

Great to see a bowling establishment doing well. Something for everyone. Excellent cafeteria. Friendly- call you by name. It's actually a fun place.

Amelia Reinarts

We had fun here! The drinks were fair and even though I can't bowl, I improved each game. My friends all enjoyed their games too.

Danielle Iskierka

Great place for bowling!

Kim Hanson

This place is great!! I went with coworkers for a team building event and will be going back with the grandkids!! Great food too!!

Perry Hulst

We had a birthday party for my grandkids at Flahertys in their play room. The place is clean and well run. The kids had a blast playing with the screen that let therm put their own pics up on three score board during bowling.

Catherine Tesmer

Lanes were too busy to bowl, league preferred over walk in. Empty lanes, but were not using them for some unknown reason. Food and beer were worth the trip.

Cynthia Gray

We enjoyed our time bowling at Flahertys Arden Bowl. Thanks for having lanes 35 and 36 and others so easily wheelchair accessible with the ramp. Our family had fun.

Harry Peka

Good food/drink and great atmosphere

Robert Davis

The nostalgic smell of cigarette smoke and ridiculous floor prints aren't the only thing about this place that I love. The pizza is really delicious! Plus cosmic bowling is always cheap and fun with a couple of good sized beers!

Gabriella Jacobs

Sad to hear $2 bowl nights are now $5 a game. No more $2 bowling after 9pm yall just a heads up! Unfortunately a terrible move for your business considering thats when everybody use to come in. Rip Flahertys! It twas a good run the last 7 years with the late night bowl tradition. Farewell!

Paul Skoglund

Jayden scored 1000 tickets on her 12th was great too!

Sam T

Great place to bowl. The food is pretty good too!

nick saxton

Bowling alleys are starting to become hard to find. They are disappearing because they can't adjust to new times. This is by far the best bowling alley I've been to in a long time.

Kevin Kangas

Great place to go bowling! Their staff is so friendly and accommodating whenever possible. The games can be a little bit more on the expensive side, but you pay for what you get. They just completed a whole new upgrade of their scoring system and installed new carpet, among other things. The recent renovations, nice well kept bowling lanes and staff customer experience make this place the best to go bowling. My bowling team actually switched to Flaherty's for our bowling league and are very excited about the change.

Lauren Brabec

Great place to chill and bowl! Nice and clean with exceptionally helpful staff!

Emily Conley

Great place for bowling with family or groups of friends. Awesome food! They also have a Pro Shop on site, and the guys in the shop are knowledgeable and helpful. Flaherty's participates in the summer Kids Bowl Free program, which makes for great free family entertainment. I love this place!

Garrett Julson

I was shockingly discriminated against based on my attire. My party was forced to forfeit the games we paid for without reimbursement. Our attire was standard. Per the employee, “it’s different” than if a woman was wearing the same attire.

Mike Bauer

Nice place. Clean, plenty of room, good pizza and finger foods. Bumpers for new/young bowlers. Fun for everyone!

Emma Vadnais

Fun and not to noisy like most places on the weekends! Jesse was work tonight (2/10) and showed excellent customer service!!! Glad to see they keep good employees!

Steve Barnes

Would be better if you could smoke inside.

Stephanie Sobetski

I Love Going Bowling And It's One Of My Favorites Activity Ever

Amanda Glover

Nice, modern bowling alley with an arcade for the kids. Party rooms available, staff is extremely great!

Nancy Saice

Rhe plqce is clean, staff is friendly, they have great arcade games and free bowling for kids during the summer! Specifically 2 free games per week you just pay for shoe rental. Definitely a spot I will be returning to with the kiddos.

Emily Nelson

Being going here since I was kid & now I love taking my kids!

Clara Olson

Massive bowling alley. Great for evening bowling because it's not too hard to get a lane. Staff have always been super nice.

Joseph Brooks

FUN for the family!


It has a variety of entertainment and the pizza is fairly good. The other food can be passed up on. If someone likes adult beverages they have that offer as well as the bowling and arcade games. Staff is fairly friendly.

Ernie L

Good beer selection! Fun place with good energy.

kath flohrs

Great dinner food. Quick service. Neighborhood feel.

Andrew Gribble

Two awesome pinball machines

James Adams

Great bowling alley with a fun arcade for kids (and adults if you like pinball, Big Buck Hunter, or Street Fighter style games). Excellently portioned bowling alley food, too!

Rachel Petersen

We had a fun time celebrating March birthdays. Reservations made in advance for 25 people. We bowled from 2-4 and kind of got pushed out 5 minutes before for league bowling. I'd recommend starting around 1:30 we were able to find a spot in the grill afterwards for drinks and conversation. Thanks for having us.

Jan Freudenberg

We had a nice time bowling on Saturday, the employees are so nice. They had to help us put our names in to bowl. Also the appreciation lunch was very good.

Jennifer Anderson

Fun place with Cosmic bowling and other fun events. Summer kids program is wonderful. Fun for kids and adults at different times so be sure to ask before you go. Large arcade.

Shailesh Anderson

Fun atmosphere, and very good food, I recommend any style pizza.

Zac Zaffke

Great spot for some bowling. The attached Irish bar is solid as well.


Mike's Pro Shop is the place to go. They're priced fairly and offer a terrific value on lessons. Mike also teaches a U of M class so he's a seasoned professor in the art of knocking down pins. I highly recommend both the Pro Shop and the lanes themselves; easily some of the best I've ever bowled on.

Curtis White

Good food, not good service.

Shawn B

Flaherty's is an old standbye in the community. Fun little arcade, lots of bowling and a bar filled with regulars. Cheers!

Becky Mahoney

We had a great great dinner (the stew was perfect)...But we didn't call ahead to check on availability of lanes so we couldn't bowl. We can't wait to bowl on our next date!

Ray Tedford

Pizza is good, Bingo is very popular with pretty big payouts and their bowling lanes are nice, but too much oil on them for my likening.

Ryan Hemenway

Flaherty's is a great place! The Mermaid is low-key cheaper, but Flaherty's has some nice lanes.

Kevin Sippy

Been going here for years. Best bowling alley in the cities. Not overpriced like the chains (bowlero, etc). Friendly staff and the lanes are well maintained! Best part is they just did a lot of upgrades, including the scoring computers making it more interactive! Late night deals are awesome! Food and drinks are good too. Do yourself a favor, get the waffle fries :)

Maximilian Rosenthal

Great venue, awesome staff, and great food!

Michael Kruempel

Nice selection of beer, friendly staff, bowling is well maintained.

Justin Thomas

Great place to enjoy good company.

Nathan Payne

Very fun bowling alley! Great for all skill levels from a family to a league.

Justin Rice

Awesome place for Moonlight Bowling on New Years and excellent Pizza. This is another member of what I like to call "The Big Three" I' only go to this ally once or twice a year due to how far it is from me but my family and I bowl here on new years every year for the last 5+ years. They always seem to have a good crowd in the restaurant no matter what time or day of the week and seems like they do really well for open bowlers as well. The Pizza is super delicious which pairs nicely with your drink of choice and a couple games of bowling as well. They have a large arcade which gives you tickets to win prizes like a Chuck E Cheese etc so great place for kids as well

George Matsumoto

Nice bowling center, friendly staff and better than average food options.

Keri Roeller

This is a clean alley with good food and electronic scoring. It has the automatic bumper options for bowlers that prefer to have bumpers come up on their turn. There are fun screen options to choose from and it is a brighter lit alley than most places.

Ellen Schwarzkopf Freeman

Fun ETA: My 8-year-old had my phone and posted this on his own. It’s true, though - he had a good time!

Angela Peterson

Have brought my son for two years during the summer participating in the “Kids Bowl Free” program - which is a great deal for families. Staff members are always kind, cheerful and knowledgeable. Nice place to take your whole family.

Alan Hoglund

Brought my 4-year-old for his first time bowling and staff was excellent. They helped multiple times when the ball got stuck and offered a ramp to make my son’s time more enjoyable. Pizza was great too!

Phillip Schmidt

Very clean bowling alley, and seems well run. We did the family deal for 49.99 and received: 1 large pizza, 1 pitcher of pop, and shoe rental and bowling for six for one hour. We had a great time and would definitely recommend! Do watch out for league times as those will hinder when you can bowl. There is a small arcade there as well. Our family had a great time! Thanks, Flaherty's!

Alyssa Lillehaugen

Best bowling alley around! They keep the lanes is such great shape. Friendly staff. Great prices. Tasty food. Great specials. Favorite place to bowl!

Steve Stowers

Good food, plentiful beer and good service. Barb takes excellent care of us each week, as she has for the last six years. A few menu changes over the past few years have taken some favorites off of the menu, but all the hits are still there.

Kyle Lsmbeth

GREAT food!!

Angela Hatfield

Went to a bingo on Friday night The staff was very nice and pleasant and the food was delicious.

Jacob Dion

It's great and filled to the brim with buddies you turn a corner and there's a buddy you turn another corner and boom there's a buddy you turn a third corner and guess what you've now got three buddies pretty soon you'll have more buddies than you can count


Locally owned fun place ! Lots of parking and lots of lanes. Also nice sized arcade as well !

john mccorkel

I love the pro shop. A big selection of everything but I bought really nice skip on bowling shoes

Jeff Gerbino

Pretty high priced for what they offer I rented a lane for an hour with my two grandkids with shoe rental it was 30 bucks...and they charge 4.25 per game too!

Mitch Lancman

We enjoyed customer appreciation tonight at Flahertys! $2 per game per person!!!

Hanna Lucas

Would be a regular if this place was closer to my home! Awesome specials and amazing bar food... the waffle fries with sour cream dip are perfect. Definitely want to come back to bowl, but it's a fun place to hang even if you don't!

Marcia Frazer

People are friendly and bowl each week in the league

Beverly Sutherland

Always a great time. Top notch place.

Marie Batson

The greatest pizza in the world and very friendly place to go and eat.

Mister Jon

A nice local establishment with pretty good food, lots of bowling lanes, a proshop, bar (with bingo and pull tabs), and moderately sized arcade. Prices can be slightly high on some items. It can also be challenging getting a lane reserved. Flahertys fiercely guards their league days, and even to try to get a lane for kids can be very difficult.

Pao Moua

Great and awesome time for the whole family!!!


Nice and fun. In the end, it's a bowling alley so it is not too different or exciting. There are arcade style games if you are looking to gamble your money away and food is ridiculously expensive.

Felicia J

This was my first time going. Lots of fun. The food was great. The service was excellent. The bowling was awesome. Great place for family, date night, fun and healthy times. I enjoyed every minute.


Flaherty's has the best bowling in town and the food is top notch. The bowling alley has been family owned and I'm proud to be a 4th generation Flaherty. ~Connor Flaherty

Amy Ewing

Had fun but even with a discount it was way too expensive!!

Tim Hutchinson

Great staff, atmosphere and equipment! If you like bowling, you'll love this place!

Monica Leibke

We played bingo here and had appetizers. Great wait staff!! Busy at bingo time and the wait staff kept up.

Sandra Mcgehee

Nice bowling alley and great pizza

ry An

Fun spot but can get very busy very fast. Bar area is on the more expensive side, bowling is fun but parking can be a pain.

Sarah Montgomery

Fun place for a family gathering. Excellent burgers.

Jessilyn Boerum

Great fun for the whole family. Arcade, bowling, food, and bar.

Christopher Korzenowski

Newly remodeled bowling interior including the electronic scoring system. Great food. The farmboy burger is delicious

Ashwin Malgi

Awesome Bowling Place for all ages... Also look for kids bowling camp ... it’s really awesome... kids will definitely enjoy it !

Rhona Beswick

Oh my God this is where we had our Christmas get-together for work.

Jesus Vazquez

Good burger, very friendly. This is a place that you can enjoy a meal and watch t.v... ;)

Danya Knight

Arcade, bowling, and restaurant! All fun

Dan Backer

I had been visiting this place many, many decades ago, and for many years and it has always been a complete sports center and has kept getting better and better.

Ian Stevens

Best bowling alley in the state.


Get the cheeseburger pizza. It is fantastic. Friday night bingo is fun also.

eric larson

great food and atmosphere always busy so plan ahead

Surya Pulipaka

Massive bowling alley. Great staff. We got game for 2$ on Sunday, I think they have this deal on Wednesday too. We had so much fun!

Josh T

Mike's pro shop guys are great, they help me on which ball will fit me best and found the one I like. Came in today to buy the same one for a cousin and they were helpful and got on to it right away. They answered all my questions and give me tips on how different level balls work and react plus which one will be a step up from the ball I have. Overall I highly recommend this place to anyone who have questions regarding different bowling balls or want to buy a ball from them. Can't thank them enough!

Victor Walker

Good bowln and food.

Ski Sharp

Great pub style food with a relaxed no thrills atmosphere and affordable pricing along with outdoor seating. Good bowling with a surprisingly large arcade. Small on building parking but large parking is across the street.
