REVIEWS OF Lodi Lanes IN New Jersey

Gary Wilks

Absolutely dismal experience. This place is a dump! I wonder how long before this place closes? Don't waste your time or money. Head to Fair Lawn Lanes or Wallington instead. They're much cleaner.

rosaura lopez

Nice places....

Christina Furtado

The environment was okay. Music wasn't too loud. It wasn't over crowded. Food was okay. The staff could be much friendlier and/or happier.

Wanderlust Immigrant

It's a big bowling place. Good price. Wish the bowling balls were more smoother.

Andy Hoang

Clean and friendly place to bowl.

Mel C

The place to be honest is a little wierd.. I went at around 7pm and there were old men outside the front entrance smoking and cussing. My family and I were bothered by that and the open bar in the middle of the lanes in the center of the bowling alley. I would not recommend for families with younger children..better to go to Hackensack Bowling Lanes...better and bigger. Also, the lodi lanes has a little variety of bowling balls. The staff is okay..but overall not bad..just would't come back..and keep going to Hackensack!

Must have gone on a bad day. Had to convince the girl at the desk to give us a ramp for our grandchildren then someone came and took it away before we were done with it.

Louann Strothmann

Lots of fun. Great food too!

Jennifer Dinh

So much fun as usual! Gotta play here

Bowling place

Alain Aleman

AWESOME PLACE TO HAVE FUN!!

Yvonne Reed

Average bowling alley. Nothing too spectacular. Spur of the moment outing

Karen Casull

We always have s great time. Nice place!!

Moshe Lieman

This bowling alley is friendly, fun and accommodating. Besides for two separate areas of lanes, there is a bar and karaoke. I gave it four stars because they don't have so many bowling balls. It was full when I was there but there were only 2-3 balls that were still available.

Ron Ehlert

Joshua Benitez

Great experience for bowling! Workers are nice, prices are great, food is good, and the vibe is always fun! Atmosphere is great out of all the times I've been there. They offer special coupon promotions on their website or in the local newspaper.

Derrick Brown

Great place to Bowl with friends

Jerianne Pizza

Reasonable rates, family friendly

Stormy Outlaw

This place does not like black people at their establishment. I attended there last night along with my family we felt as though we walked into a KKK meeting. All eyes were on us making us feel very uncomfortable. The front desk staff wouldn’t even acknowledge us nor look at us when we were inquiring about a lane. Very weird. BLACK people please stay away. It’s not safe here.

Sean

Very good, well known local spot. Very short wait for a lane on a busy night.

WILL WILLIAMS

Just didn't like the service, lanes, drinks or atmosphere.

Arielle Saracinello

Jason Pellegrino

Great prices, classic bowling/bar at its best.... It's not a super modern alley, yet I think that's what makes it so great... Friendly people/staff... Non commercializes style bowling.... Highly recommend....

gaurav patel

Very Nice Atmosphere, Nice staff. Alex is always nice to us when we visit there. Takes great care. Overall Nice experience.

Tyler Kammen

Nice bowling alley. Clean and well maintained.

DAVID RAMIREZ

Great

Bowled there early this Saturday morning, 04/27/19, for the NJ state tournament. The alley itself was not bad. There were only two things that could possibly be looked into as far as the building itself goes. The men's room was definitely a bit small for that size alley compared to the volume of people there at one time, especially for when hosting tournaments. Lol Secondly, the parking lot had pretty much the same issue. Parking spots and entering and exiting the lot could definitely use a looking into. Even if for potential surrounding properties to use for overflow parking could be a possibility. However, other than that I think the facility over all wasn't bad. Now as far as how the tournament itself was ran in reference to oiling the lanes in between singles and doubles and team team sets definitely needs to be looked into. Bowling a state tournament on pretty much a burned out pattern right after s/d WITHOUT reoiling for 10 people to a pair was a bit brutal.

Jo Barris

Perfect place to spend time bowling with the family & friends . Love their beer towers and buffalo wings are perfect. Definitely recommend. Love their mom & pop bowling alley vibe.

Charles Kawas, Jr.

Overall, my 2 visits to Lodi Lanes for the NJUSBC Tournament 2019, was adequate and clean. Food was good, although filling my soda cup with ice, to the brim, than filling the soda in so it’s less soda used, that’s cheap to me. Lanes were clean, even though the bowling was off, though I think that’s more of a complaint for the NJUSBC.

Jeffrey Zdanewicz

Have to say haven't been to the bowling alley for years today was my first time many years and have to say the improvements, staff are wonderful. The manager has really turned the bowling alley around 360 . Have to say Lodi Lanes puts Fairlawn lanes to shame. Keep up the great work. God bless.

Aminul Rouf

The front desk people are racist and they honestly need to work on how to talk to people

Yash Patani

Great place overall. Good amount of lanes and the food counter is also good and has pretty decent options. I reduced two stars because the front desk lady is probably the rudest person and I hope she learns how to behave.

james mccabe

Very pleasantly surprised by the place. Had come a long way in 14 years

Nathan Rojas

Best Bowling Alley Ever

Joseph Khalil

12.50 for 2 people on weekdays. A lot of fun and very nice staff. Check it out!

Domenic Filingeri

Very clean and not busy. A definite step up from Bowler City

Mikey Stellato

I loved in Lodi for 31 years! This place knows new by my first name! Great food! Great atmosphere and most of all. The staff is excellent!!!

K R

It was a terrible experience I tried to take my grandkids there for a fun afternoon and the man behind the desk was rude condescending the whole time he sat there while they were bowling in the beginning just looking for trouble for some reason he made my afternoon with my grandkids miserable. We will never return and I will tell everyone the same. I also highly recommend places on a regular basis I’m just not that person and just complains

Linda scarlatelli

Fun time. Reasonable prices.

Ed Nitch

A unique set up with 20 Lanes on each side of the building and food, bar and service desk in the center. Low prices and great bowling.

Brandon Varella

The parking lot needs to be fixed , the people are nice but there's also a lot a THOTS in their and the place is honestly just too small needs remodeling

Brandy Mulvaney

While the tournament's here don't always start exactly on Time, anything ran by Tom Semiz is a hit. Well run tournaments, decent food in the snack bar, clean well stocked bathrooms.

Melissa Hertenberger

Nice bowling alley with food counter, bar and nice attendants at the front desk

Richard Ayers

Mari Castro

They are playing bowling with your friends and eating pizza after they play bowling with their friends and the teacher in 8th grade from School #2.

Lee Siegel

Had a good time with good people

Papanasa KarthicK

Too busy. The house balls are not good.

Nick Lisanti

Haven't been in a bowling alley in years, especially Lodi Lanes. Well... since then, they renovated and now it looks great. they have both adult and kids bowling. If you want a snack or a drink, both soda or alcohol are available at the bar.

life out of my eyes jean françois gemme

First time bowling in a beautiful environment...

Gal Fabian

Love my wed league at lodi

Kevin Loo

Friendly service. Good prices per game. I find v their oil pattern challenging.

George Collazo

The staff make it a great customer experience

Dave Rispoli

Great house. Prices are reasonable, the lanes are in good condition and they have good oil patterns.

Tommy Hayes

5 stars when you're in 1st and you bowl the lowest avg in the league

greg t

Renovated. Looks good.

robert cordes

This place sucks my wife fell and no one came to help. She has a fractured ankle,

Jeff garrett

Food is ok, beer is cold, Lanes are waxed and the balls are round.

I tried to take my three kids bowling here a few weeks ago.... it was a Sunday morning. They said they were having a tournament and we couldn’t play for a few hours. I asked if we could use one of the unoccupied lanes, we were still told no. What a disappointment. No choice but to give 1-star. *Make sure you call here before going* We ended up going to Bowler City in Hackensack and played there. I recommend you try this instead. I really don’t know why they would have a tournament on Sunday morning... a time when families are most likely to take their kids bowling because everything else is closed in Bergen County. Obviously not a family oriented establishment.

Pretty good place with good food and drinks.

Very affordable, clean and up to date facility. Much better deal and experience than chain alleys such as Bowlero. Helpful, kind employees to boot.

Brian DiMarco

I’ve been bowling for over 10 years. Great alley with food people and competition. Rick in the pro shop is helpful as well. They have more tournaments than most alleys.

Sal Chiaravalloti

The remodeling is coming out nice

Jon Clark

Fun

Susan Saphire

Bowling lanes are nice and modern. The food is very tasty considering. My only hangups was the music, they should alternate between styles.

Mark

A recent upgrade makes this place more enjoyable. Went on a Saturday evening and bowled while Karaoke w the s going on.

Rajeev Uppaluri

A lot of lanes; fun times

antoni grebowiec

I use to go to wallington lanes but since they stopped giving a damn about that the pace became a club and dark. So I was a journey for a new bowling alley to play at that didn't do such silly things as put the blacklights when they open their doors. Lodi lanes is the best alley they care for the bowlers and have cheap prices to play many games you can't beat 3 dollar games and 2 dollar shoes the prices are great. Staff is very kind and they get the job done if your lane breaks they go and fix it within second were as in wallington you lose 30 to 40 mins of your time they care for the bowler and they are always in tip top shape lodi lanes they fixed there parking lot and I swear when ever I'm there it's always alive. Wallington lanes has a staff that is cancer and don't give a damn about the bowling or customer aspect lodi cares I give lodi 5 out of 5 star because they are doing a great job and sticking to there guns. The care for the customers and the game and they don't care on how their building looks. They keep things nice and simple

Adry Luna

Very nice place!!

Thomas Pentoney

Classic bowling joint. Great prices.

Good bowling place, but food isn't that good and made me sick a day after eating it.

Friendly neighborhood bowling lanes.

Sadly, this place has let me down many times before and today was the last straw. I run a Sunday respite program for young adults with special needs and I've had numerous issues with trying to get 1 (yes, only 1) lane on a Sunday. One time I asked if they had any available lanes and they said no because of some league or tournament. I decided to go see it for myself to see if all the lanes were occupied that Sunday and there were over 10 empty lanes. I even asked if I could bowl on 1 lane and they said yes. Today, I brought the group there after calling and speaking to someone 4 days ago who reassured me I would be able to use 1 lane in the afternoon. I even asked, "Are you sure? I know you guys get busy with leagues and tournaments." The worker said, "Yes, you can come in any time." I explained I called to see if I could reserve a lane and they said they don't reserve lanes. So, I show up there today and there's a sign on the door that says "No Public Lanes until 5pm Due to Tournament." I went in and asked why they didn't tell me this on the phone when I specifically asked if they would be busy. They apologized and could not make any arrangements for 1 single lane. I had to call all the parents and make alternate plans last minute which was a huge inconvenience. What stinks the most is that they are super affordable compared to the big name bowling alleys, the staff are friendly, and it's in an neutral location for all the parents, but there is definitely a severe lack in communication amongst the staff and workers. I know I'm only one customer, but I'm bringing my group elsewhere.

Juan Nieves

Fun and always open lanes.

Jeff

I'm no bowler, but when the family wants to go bowling, we collectively have a relatively short list of what we look for in a bowling alley: low prices, no wait, not too crowded, decent food, and adult beverages. All of the above makes this our go-to spot. The people who work there are friendly and polite, the place is clean.... Is it fancy schmancy? Nope. But who cares??? Certainly not us.

Mona Nashed

My son and his Church friends went today to celebrate his birthday. Worker who could have been the manager was beyond rude, hostile, and cursing out the kids .... I am outraged and will never let my children go there again.

Bond Bond

Very affordable, clean and up to date facility. Much better deal and experience than chain alleys such as Bowlero. Helpful, kind employees to boot.

Brian Schwer

Great prices and is a long time bowling alley in the area. It can get very busy at times.

Steve Kordys

WORST PRO SHOP EVER! I went there three times today during its open hours. Twice it was closed because he wasn't there, third time he was bowling. Don't waste your gas going here. If you have to order your stuff online and if its not what you want let the mailman take it back.

hagooora1

First time we ever went to this place and will be the last time. The lady at the front desk was extremely rude and wasn't helpful with our questions. The lane broke and we lost 5 minutes of our paid time. Don't go here if your looking for quality.

Jon

Nice lanes and friendly staff, but food prices are a bit high if you're planning on going here casually. Overall a great place though

Kathy Whalen

We often visit with intellectually disabled adults for a fun morning of bowling. Staff is welcoming, helpful.

Nem Kashanian

Fun time... Garbage food... Clean..

Angelo Dasilva

Ebby MK

It was fun

E Crum

We usually go on a Sunday afternoon, so it isn't very crowded. It's a nice family atmosphere, clean and with decent lanes. Prices are a little higher than other lanes in the area, and I don't recall ever seeing any discount coupons for this bowling alley. You can buy light snacks there, and there is a bar where alcohol is served. Staff doesn't smile much in general, but they're helpful enough.

Paul Kaser

Calmer and smaller than Bowler City, Lodi Lanes is a good spot to grab a game. Could use some freshening up, plus a better ball selection.

sal carbonaro

Nice place good for kids good food.

David Ramirez

Nice and unexpensive

Daniel Jeetan .

Best place ever for family’s and also people that are trying to really bowl they are cheap and all staff treat everyone like a family. I bowl there almost everyday and the staff treat me extremely well and always will. Will always be the best bowling alley out there. Not only that they even have the best pro shop as well!

Andrew Schmitz

Well maintained. Modern scoring machines. Friendly service. Family friendly. Ample parking.

Ray Mullen

Very nice bowling center. Well run, clean. Always doing something around building to make for better customer experience. Good food too.

Great for the family and date night. Great prices as well.

Very friendly staff. Great place to take kids.

Grace Morales

Im on a league here so there are some discount prices available to me. It doesnt have the bells and whistles of some other alleys but its fine for going to bowl and the snack bar os decent.

Excellent service by Brianne! Too bad absolutely no one learned lane etiquette. Otherwise had a good time.

Meyer Advertising

Great bowling center. The owner mike is a great guy. Rick in the pro shop is phenomenal and if you are looking to practice on oil this is the spot.

Gabriela Martinez

My niece had her birthday party here, the women attending the group were rude & dismissive. Horrible customer service, first time here & will not be returning will take my business to Wallington Lanes. I love supporting small family owned businesses but not if we are treated like trash.

every nice bowling alley. the staff is kind to there customers. prices are great to play many games of bowling

Greg A

I came in just to kill some time and bowl (I'm terrible) and the people were nice. Interesting group of league level bowlers and average joes. Prices were cheap (think I bowled 11 games over 2 hours for 30 bucks on a weekday afternoon). Service is a little slow but I think it has to do more with headcount than service quality. Didn't try the food.

Sheikh Abdullah

Very excited and enjoying

Yamilex B

It's so fun they have good food to

German Hernandez

Love it

Andrew Wiese

Great well kept bowling center. Rarely any machine issues. The place could use updates to be more modern but nothing that's detrimental to the experience. Proshop on site has knowledgeable staff as well.

Sophia Pinzon

Friendly staff. Great bartender. Clean restrooms. Lockers. Store. Wish they had an arcade game or two for the kids.

Ray Mullen

Very nice bowling center. Well run, clean. Always doing something around building to make for better customer experience. Good food too.

Blue Tiger

Good place to take your kids especially if you have a smaller budget, upkeep is good and tends to get busier on the weekends and friday evenings.

Dante Tiongco

MYCHAL SLEDGE

Clean and family orientated. Great food with great priced

Moshe Lehmann

Very clean and bright. Smelled ok too (not like a sweaty sock). The staff was very courteous and helpful. My kids had a great time. I would go back again, but with an adult group and avail ourselves of the well stocked bar.

Doria

A nice and clean bowling alley.

Great place for the kids to bowl

Lou Castro

Parking was a bit of a challenge, but the lanes were very scorable!

NJ NJ

If I could give zero stars, I would. The lady who works in the front is the rudest woman ever. Apparently, she is also the manager. She is rude and a racist. She couldn't even look me in the eye when talking to me because she knows she's a racist. It is fitting for her to manage a bowling alley because she looks like a bowling ball. Place was also a dump .

Lady Mirana

Kindest people great staff they make wallington looks like a joke to this place. Well organized, their fast, every thing has its place and it's better a 100 times then wallington lanes

Dan Fleischl

Good lanes. Usually quick service.

nestor milanes

DJ H

A good place to go bowling with family or friends. Prices are good.

Meme DemiGod

Its really fun

Bryan Bae

Beyond terrible customer service. Rude, impatient, and clearly unwilling to help as I tried to obtain information on whether or not there was a league on the day I went. "Is there a league today?(Me) Do you want to join?(Employee) No I am asking if there is a league today.(Me) We have open lanes."(Employee) He never answered me whether or not there was a league and I could have came minutes or hours before a league came resulting in NO open lanes. Also as my friends and I tried to pay for our fee, I tried requesting that we pay separately and the employees denied our request. It wasn't even a problem of having a lack of change since I know my friends were giving them singles and fives earlier to shorten the amount of bills they were carrying. It really isn't acceptable to have customer service like this. Also the pro shop is quite unprofessional as he showed no care regarding his work on my ball and the poorly done drilling resulted in my fingers swelling and the ball cracking after just two months.

Linell Charles

Nice comfy place to spend some time with the family

Colin Tallman

Bowled a tournament here, good lanes, nice staff, reasonable prices.

Jennifer Minaya

Hell yeah!!!!

Víctor Zamora

Very good place loved
