John Creighton

Been many times. Going tonight!

Tom Troncone

Great place and very clean

Tier One Virtual Tours

excellent service. Very friendly. I do love to go there as much as possible. Bowling one of my favorite events to do on my free time. Im not afriad to bring anyone there.

Thomas Lotito

What a nice casual place to eat and bowl. The best kept secret in N.West Jersey. The restaurant is five stars by itself. Everything we ordered was fresh. The specialty of the house is steak. Fresh vegetables, ice cold beer, and prompt friendly service. Bowling lanes were clean and comfortable. Nice atmosphere. I can't say enough good things about this place. Great place to take a date.

D Seidens

My new home alley quartermania is a great deal and it's a nice atmosphere. Snackbar closes at 9:30 so get there before then for food

Mary Filliyor

Haven't been to the bowling side, but the Sports Scene which is the restaurant and bar side has some very good appetizers, and you are better off asking if it is BYOB because the drinks are more of what is blended in your alcohol than alcohol.

John Monaghan

Fun place to take the kids. Great place for a birthday party. Upgraded since I was there last. (Many years) adult beverages available but Food is fair.

Gary Kambeck

Surprisingly good restaurant. Don't let the bowling alley fool you. Go eat here.

Elizabeth Bush

I'm a terrible bowler but I have never had a bad experience at oakwood lanes and sports scene has incredible food both places are clean and the staff is very friendly love this place!

Nick Weinstock

Good bowling, food and beer was not that good

Gina Peck

Hi. About 2 months ago, I had a fundraiser at Oakwood Bowling alley in Washington, Nj. This fundraiser was for my son. He is in need of a service dog. The owner, Rob Plenge, walked me thru the whole process before beginning the planning. He was so helpful in assisting me. I wanted to give credit where credit is due. Their bowling alley is very clean and well taken care of. All of the employees are friendly and very eager to help. They also have a great snack bar. Quick service, from their staff. Overall, I was completely happy with the whole process. I would highly recommend Oakwood Lanes for parties, fundraisers, or just for a fun evening.

Kevin O'Sullivan

Kids had a great little party


Food at the restaurant (Sport Scene) is good, always been happy with the burgers, but 1/2 dozen other items I've had also have all been enjoyable. Have had several events here (scouts, PTA) and Rob the owner has always been both accommodating and helpful in planning each one. Gotten some good bowling tips from at least 1/2 dozen of the employees and there's a great small town feel to the place.

Joe Wilhelm

Bowling is fun, drinks are good and food isn't bad. What's not to love!!!

Nicole Clauberg

Tom Troncone

Great place to bowl and the food is excellent

Evan Rys

The owner, Walt, is a wonderful man. He gave my friends and I free rewards cards, loaded with $10 dollars to start with. Also, my friends and I wanted 2 rounds of bowling. But Walt informed us how we could use a special he was having and get 3 rounds for less money than 2. He is such a nice man, and Oakwood Lanes is the best place to go bowling

JT Eastwood

These guys know how to throw a birthday party!

Gary Hall

Excellent Staff !

Eric Kirchmeier

Check out their family plans to save cash. Their lane computers animate your face in the scoreboards - nice touch.

Andrew Stroessenreuther

Very fun place to go with friends

Joseph Radwan

Good food, good price, clean facility.

Tracy Ceglia

Love Oakwood!

Taran Connelly

Great place for a birthday party! We had a glow bowling party to celebrate my girls turning 3 and 5 and were extremely happy with the experience, start to finish! The staff were all easy going while still being professional and extremely helpful. The girls who worked as our party hosts did absolutely everything possible to make the day special for our girls, down to hand making each of them a birthday card! The prices were more than reasonable, and all of the kids and adults had a great time. It was refreshing to know you can still get great customer service and a special birthday experience without paying a fortune. I would definitely recommend Oakwood Lanes to anyone looking for a party venue. Perfect fun for kids of all ages, and great for all budgets.

John Obrien

Good food and a quiet place

aneta deangelo

My family loves it ! Very clean and bright

Nicole Pichalski

The lanes are good, computers are easy to use and I'm practically retarded so that's saying something. The first time I went was awesome the second time the lanes were dry and my ball wasn t hooking at all.. but other than that the beer was cold and the bartender was funny.. getting carded at 30 made my day. I'll be back

Garrett Armbruster

Great lanes! You can get some good food while their while you're playing, best alley in the area!

Ryan Negoescu

The bowling alley is very conscientious and the equipment is taken care of very well. I really enjoy bowling at oakwood lanes.

Joshua Weinstein

I was here for a charity event on a Sunday afternoon, 6/10. I had never before visited Oakwood Lanes since it is not particularly close to my home. I find most bowling alleys to be adequate, if a bit stagnated with years of subpar maintenance, 70's decor, and a musk of cigarette smoke never purged from the air. So color me surprised when I found that this bowling alley was very modern! The computers for keeping score are entirely digital and touchscreen, the laser light show was awesome and made me feel like I was at some swanky wedding venue, and the staff was super polite! Now we take that last one for granted often. But most of the employees I dealt with seemed on the young side and each and every one were helpful, respectful, and professional. Clearly this establishment has standards for its employees! I can't comment on prices because of the nature of the event I attended, but regardless this is a fun, clean, and well managed bowling alley that I would return to even despite the longer drive!

Daniel Smith

Robert Gruen Sr

A fun place to visit. Two or three times we celebrated birthdays there. Everyone enjoyed themselves.

Allen Reichert

Ordered cheese fries and came out as nachos don't come and spend your money on this place that gives you wrong food and takes your money away. Don't come at least you want to waste your money on this place of shut.

Jenn H

Really nice bowling alley. Walter at the front desk was very helpful and welcoming. The place was very well kept and affordable. We had a great time. Wasn't too crowded on a Saturday night. We will definitely visit again.

Went here with some people from work and had a great time. If you go with a group you can order food and drinks and they will bring out a table. We all definitely had a fun time. The food is good and I would suggest the milkshakes.

Ken Chambers

Went to the restaurant, Sports Scene, and again glad I did. The food there just never disappoints. Great selection of dinner options, service is attentive and friendly. Reasonable prices for large portions. I didn't bowl there, but after dinner, looking in on the lanes, folks all seemed to really enjoy the atmosphere and sport.

Brendan Pribush

It's ok kinda dirty inside and old plus the food was terrible but we had a lot of fun thank you

Katherine Moutner

Good food and great service

Maggy Cummins

Our family has been to this fine establishment on several occasions. We particularly enjoy the restaurant as a separate, more relaxed setting from the bustle of the lanes. We are comfortable and treated courteously whenever we bowl there.

Rob Yacullo

Clean, well maintained and friendly staff.

Joyce Getter

Great time. Everyone very nice. Meet friends from long ago. Will be going every Sunday to practice. Price great! Staff helpful. Thanks for the day.

Ed Nitch

First time here for the county tournament. 26 lanes, very clean and well maintained center, original wood approaches (awesome) and great elevated spectator area behind the lanes. Plenty of parking and concrete handicap ramp for accessibility.

Sadly, the food was not good. My chicken was dry and overcooked. Did not eat 95% of it. Waitress was nice. Food was not worth the $80.

Nathan Strunk

It's a real family type of place. The staff is outstanding and they give you the phone town feel

Bobby M

Great operation and reasonable prices.

Matthew Capaldi

I've lost track of how many kids party's (including my kids), I've been to here. The staff is incredible, the atmosphere is the epitome of a bowling alley and the equipment and lanes are top notch. Oakwood...if you read these...don't change a thing.

Francisco Sarceno

Nicholas Stueber

Great friendly staff. Great place to bowl. never too crowded

Lee Manor

We came at 9:30pm and the lady at the counter was told us in a rude tone "you have a looong wait" and we asked for how long so she said 25 min. We ended up waiting an HOUR and then they told us that it's too late to start playing. Also their french fries are terrible.

Brett Jamele

A great experience for me and my son.

Carol King

Normal bowling alley fast food.

Heather Parkot

Bowling is great and so is the food, the night bartender is slow and not very attentive to his coustomers

Jefferson Guzman

Good place

James DiPrimo

Laura Masonheimer

Nice friendly atmosphere


Brandon Kimmins

I love this bowling alley. Very clean and the lanes actually work!! I drove 40 min to bowl here because the Bowlmor 10 min away is extremely dirty and the lanes are constantly breaking down. I never regret the long drive to bowl at Oakwood lanes!

Radoslaw Kielczewski

My kids loved the silly on-screen animations

Rohn Nussbaum

Great time bowling, good people with great sports bar restaurant.

David Scioscia

Very nice people, very helpful, good bowling programs, member ship card's, quarter mania, senior discounts. I started bowling 6/2017---present I was a 135 average now I'm 185 thanks to Walter and staff !

Heather R Hartobey

Expensive! Definitely not like the old days. Workers always look tired and cranky. Only had one lady worker who actually paid attention to our needs. *bartender* The only good thing about this place, it serves liquor!!

Austin Wilson

This is a wonderful and locally owned bowling alley that is great for the whole family. The birthday parties here are fun and the staff are there to help you with your every need. There are plenty of lanes to be bowled on, all well maintained and easy enough to use.

Meghan Hill

Great place to go bowling and too grab dinner and drinks with friends

Mildred Bentler

We go for the wings

Tony Salernitano

Great night of bowling with our son at Oakwood Lanes. We didn't have any food, but a few years ago we had a birthday party here and everybody had a great time--the kids loved the pizza. Fun place to go with family and friends.

Robin Calv

Jeff Lowe

Had a corporate event here. Stay was great. Love the digital touch screen lane controls. We had a great time.

Great food

Karen Schaaf

Nice staff. Places needs updating and not as clean as it should be.

Monica Wallace

Nice place to go, not far from home for an old fashion night out. So many bowling alleys closing it was great to find this family friendly place. Oh yeah, restaurant inside has good food and service and the cocktails are just they way you'd make them at home (nice pours).

Naa Quaye

Staff is really nice

Amanda Rossi

A great place for all ages to enjoy - Featuring a Bowling Alley & Restaurant/Bar. Oakwood Lanes is a great bowling alley; Very clean, great prices, and friendly customer service. The Sports Scene Restaurant is open for lunch and dinner - A nice local eatery and sports bar. The Sports Scene has great burgers & wings, as well as steaks and seafood dishes. They feature locally made burgers and Piedmontese Beef Steaks from Arctic Foods, USA - A Meat Shoppe & USDA Processing facility (since 1957) - Which is only minutes down the road!

Luke Locascio

Nice place. Though compared to other places a little price but pretty good in the end.

Fun place to bring the family.

Jared baker

Jeremy H

The best place to go bowling from my personal standpoint. The food is not overpriced and the people there create a friendly environment. It’s always fun for a group or friends or just a solo run. On Sundays & Wednesdays they have “Quarter Mania” from 9:00am-11:30am and also from 9:00pm-11:00pm. During this time each game only costs $0.25

Paul Jenkins

I didn't go bowling I just went to the bar it's actually very nice. It came highly recommended from a friend and I will most certainly go back again

Thomas Massey

Warren County Habitat for Humanity Bowl for Homes was a great event!

David Weiss

Fun time had with my children.

Ailee Carman

Rebecca Legg

"great bowling, rude service" -the bowling is great and there's great deals on Thursdays and Sundays, if there's any employee at the counter who appears to be over the age of 35 expect to be treated rudely as if your not worth their time, so far only the younger employees have treated me and my friends as though i was worth the business

Mikey leon

Sharon Lucas

Had a disgusting meal there on 2-16-18. One person had steak that was tough and full of grizzle. My friend and I both had chicken parmesan dinners. The chicken was MUCH smaller than it used to be and it was dry and burnt. Some of it wasn't even edible. We had to ask for sauce for the spaghetti that was served with it. Otherwise it was just plain, dry, sauceless spaghetti. The service wasn't too good either. There are four of us who will NEVER eat at the Sports Scene again. Totally disgusting meal and waste of money.

Kyle Sevits

Fantastic staff. They even offered to help modify a house ball so it fit better.

Matthew Dell ELBA

Zach Snyder

David Czarnecki

Great Prime Rib on Friday and Saturday nights! Always good food, waitress even noticed that we were out without kids and offered to move us away from a family with kids, so that we could enjoy our 'date night'.

Rajesh Patwal

Laura Akins

Tons of fun with my granddaughter. Nice lanes

Mya Golden

Waited for an hour for a lane after being told 25 minutes max, the lady running the place was rude and even told off a younger girl for trying to help us out. People who arrived after us were given a lane before us which was pretty out of order tbh. A terrible experience overall considering I've come all the way from England

Charles Carey

Fun for friends and family

Amelia McCaffrey

Nice bowling alley. Friendly atmosphere. Very clean.

John VasKorlis

Sports Scene Restaurant is a favorite for Sunday Dinner at least twice a month. Food is really predictable, burbon old fashion perfect, serves make you feel welcome. And, it's just around the corner.

William Stratto

At least when I go here my mind's not the only thing in the gutter...

Angela Bodine

Very nice..we all had a great time
