REVIEWS OF Stelton Lanes IN New Jersey

Sagar Vora

Nice place and got a good deal on 2 hour bowling for 6 person for 30$ inclusive of shoe rental plus a non alcoholic beverage (pitcher) free. Had a good time on mothers day. Staff was helpful too.

ingrid harvey

The AC unit was broken and the place was extremely hot. It made bowling a very uncomfortable experience and my family I could not enjoy our time there. It made breathing very difficult, there was no type of air flow. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful but the conditions they were working in is horrifying and inhumane. With everything going on they remained attentive but was dripping in sweat, I felt so bad for them. Overall the place needs some serious improvement if they expect to keep customers coming in.

Vinod kumar Avulapati

Good to have fun time with family and friends here,

Tim Adams

Steve Gabriel

The place was great. Our group had a ton of fun.

Kahlilah Adams

Shelton Lanes us a great bowling alley it's small but roomy. Great for families or a date night. The prices per game are good. Plan your next event you will have a great time.

Rafael Maisonet

Old dumpy place. Had the #1 ranking as the worst pizza ever. Even worse than papa johns. It’s so bad, that not being allowed to bring outside food should be illegal here

Valerie Belk

Very dirty the rental shoes are disgusting the service stinks, overall it's a hot MESS!!

sandip shah

Sambasivarao Manam

Used to be cheaper to bowl on weekends for 10$ cosmo night. Not great place for the price. Old and run down but workers are nice! Especially bartender

Julie Jirout

We had a lovely birthday party here. Would recommend!

Siva Paladugu

Unfriendly customer service. Better avoid this place.

Varun Gattu

Looks like an old place with old equipment. But, it is still fun to go there and hangout. Decent prices and decent crowd. Never had to wait for a lane.

Lisa Hahn

An ols school alley petfect for families and people who just want to bowl

Joseph Kenney

I love to bowl at Stelton Lanes. The only problems today was that the AC was not working so the place was a bit hot. The other thing that irked me was the staffer handling food duties. I placed my food order and after a long wait I went over to the desk and I could tell my order had been completed several minutes earlier and she never said anything. The food sat so long and was no longer hot. She could tell I was not happy. She could have let me know the food was ready or brought it out to me.


We had fun at the friend's birthday party. But the server was not active in serving. So one star less for the service.

Cinthya Silva

Nice family place, needs to improve the air conditioning system it's too hot inside

Margarita Jimenez

I hosted my sons 8th birthday a Stelton Lanes and it was the worse decision I could have made. I walk in to find a table in a corner and that was were my son was celebrating his party. I was informed that party rooms are for parties of 20 children or more. I had 15 children with accompanying parents, needless to say we were tight. I then asked if they had at least a balloon to make it a bit more festive and the response was no. At no time was it disclosed that I was not getting a party room. Here my sons pictures are agains a sad white corner wall. I proceeded to ask for additional chairs and a table to try to accommodate my guest. Mind you my husband and I set up table and chairs. My party host was MIA and the title was a complete joke. I then proceeded to request food that came out almost 2 hrs later. Again party host was MIA, I did all the serving of food and drinks to the children, followed by cleaning up our already tight area. When I go to pay for my party gratuity was already included, seriously! I asked for them to remove it because I was not tipping them for all the work I did at my sons party. DO NOT BOOK PARTIES HERE!!!


We had reservations, as we walked in the stink of mold was washed upon us. We exited immediately.

John Hegedus

Joe and his staff did an amazing job once again with our fundraiser. We could not ask for more from this bowling alley and from the management and staff. We will continue to come back as long as they will have us.


Nice facility they have as in bowling alley... Kids really enjoy this place and also have cafe for some snacking

Tony Whitsett

Very good

Ansari Thahir

A nice place to spend a couple of hours with family and friends!!

craig garlewicz

Bowling alley is a great place for leagues, but sadly the pro shop I can't say the same about.. Had a ball plugged and it wasn't done right, so had it redone.. After I spoke to the house owner and had the ball fixed I thought things were fine.. But then I went in there a few weeks later and the pro shop guy said "I'm not working on anything of yours ever again" uhhh that's not good customer service at all, especially when I'm at this house every Sunday for league for the last 2 years..

Heather T

Was here one evening for a work event. It was average - not fantastic, but nothing really that wrong either. Food was typical for a bowling alley. Shoes were either a half size too big or a half size too small, and that was odd since I wear a women's size 8. I did enjoy the fun graphics on the electronic scoring board. :)

Mohd Sohail

One of the places to avoid bowling. They don't have enough equipment if you're visiting on a busy day. Shoes are dirty, looks like they have been using them since the time this place was first opened. Not enough staff, one person handling the register, the same person handling the shoe department. I wouldn't have been surprised if that same person also made your food. Give it a try if you don't love your money or would like to ruin your night.

Frank Bonini

The lanes are very well maintained and a very clean house

Krishna Gaddam

Nice bowling place in the center of borough

Yirmiyahu Lebowitz

Nice people, pretty empty, we had a good time. Lanes are older and don't always work quickly or correctly.

Bhaven Shah

Good place to bowl with family. And that's all you can do.

Hey It's Lara

Nice place to go to.

Sandra Ken

I love bowling here. The chicken fingers are delicious. I bowling experience was great. They have wonder deals on Living Social. Give it a shot, you'll enjoy it.

Rebecca Ruhlen

Wish the facility was better maintained but the customer service and pricing was great. My family had a great time. We will be back.

Gurunath Joshi

Good for family fun with kids

Nicole Lugo

It's not easy trying to go out with two young kids, but they made it easy for us to enjoy our time there.

Ellite monkey Gamer

When my best friend asked for the snack bar she replies I don't feel like cooking the food it.My friend also asked for soda the women had a bad attitude I went (with the park summer camp) there needs to be something done about this I don't mean to be rude but its true wish I can get a refund and ILL never return again

Sudharsan R

These guys don't honor coupons. Lanes are not clean. Don't recommend


If you like to bowl but hate waiting this is your place. And they have q bar that makes good drinks.

Aida Rivera-Dobson

Food is ok. Equipment is old and it smells moldy inside. Prices are ok compared to other places. If you’re not looking for somewhere fancy to bowl at and just want to bowl with. I extras then this is fine.

David Cohen

This place is a $hithole. A/C wasn’t working, bumpers kept breaking. Food terrible. Overall poor experience STAY AWAY

Heather Tourville

Fun old school place.

Virginia QuirosBarboza

It's a really good place for a quick game or two

Brian Cohen

Great way to spend an afternoon. Joe and his staff were friendly and attentive as my little one had a hard time getting the ball all the way down the alley. I would recommend this place for some good quality family time.

Albert Bogoraz

Nice place good service but old and dirty inside

Nikhil Thite

decent place to hang out with kids.. the lanes are good. if only there was some music to go along with..

Sean Peterson

No air conditioning not very happy

Michael A

This is the worst place. Don’t ever plan to go here. These guys who run the place are absolutely rude and don’t care about you. We had a very bad experience here. I hope my review has helped you to change your mind from trying this crappy bowling place. If you are looking to have some fun, this is ABSOLUTELY NOT THE PLACE.

Michael Texidor

Great place to go bowling very affordable

Kanchan Thite

It's fun bowling here

Marc Collins

Nice place, fairly well maintained. The place was rather quiet for a Friday night at the time we arrived. Staff was attentive to needs.


I went and the customer service is really bad and they are so rude it’s a great place for bowling but the staff is really rude

Nora Leary

Went there with a Groupon. Would’ve been fine except there is no air conditioning. We were sweating and couldn’t take the heat. It was easily 80+ degrees in there.

Thatone Customer

Customer service was very direct, no kind greetings or extra information.... more of like "what do you want? OK here's how much it costs". Prices were insane! Sunday early afternoon, the place is empty and it cost 28 bucks for 2 games with only 2 people! I almost had to ask if they do payment plans since I'm not used to spending my yearly salary on 2 games of bowling. For 28 dollars this place is also extremely run down. Ball returns are super old and most are held together with duct tape. Tv's and keyboards are in ok condition. Lanes themselves seem hit or miss, ours was broken for the first 5 minutes until maintenance come over and fixed it. The actual games went well, no issues after we started playing. For almost 30 bucks though, I expect much nicer venue. Will probably not be returning unless some kind of good special.

Matthew Vandenberg

One of the biggest things I love about this place is it's not as over crowded as other bowling alleys are. You always are getting the bowling balls you need (they keep extra 6's in the back!) so you can bowl comfortably.

Dennis Morena

An older bowling alley but everything works and the staff is super friendly and helpful. Join a league and benefit from great pricing.

Nikhil Varma

A bit run down but the place is fun..supporting staff and is a good place to take kids

Fednel Vilcant

Great place to bring the family


Great place for a team building outing! Joe, Dawn, Celeste and the entire front desk/kitchen crew went above and beyond to ensure our team was well taken cared of. Days leading up to the event I was able to get all of my questions answered no matter when I called. Dawn was very helpful with our food selections and suggested the most popular menu items that was sure to make everyone happy. Our outing went off without a hitch and the team thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Looking for something to do with the team or just a fun night with friends and family? This is it!

Chris J

I came in for a night out with my husband and had a blast!! The bowling alley was so clean and well put together. The manager was amazing!!!He made sure we were having fun and we had everything we needed. After bowling we sat at the bar for another 2 hours having drinks and laughs because the bartender was amazing!! I can't wait for our next date night at the alley! Great job guys!!

rajasekhar Reddy

Nice place to spend time!

yash immadi

Nice atmosphere for children and adults. Has a many things for kids and a party room. Also has a great arcade.

Uzair Mustafa

Nice place for Bowling lovers. Pricing is good. Family and Friends can have good time there.

ankit mahto

Cheaper. Ambience isn’t the best when compared to other bowling places but id you just want to bowl then this is a good option.

Sarah Oli

Parking is a nightmare but we love this place! The atmosphere is great and prices are reasonable. Would definitely recommend.


When my friend asked her why there is no food. She said because she didn't want to cook the food She is super rude and I won't come again.

Kathleen LaFerrara

Up until two weeks ago, we liked this bowling alley. It is an old fashioned kind that we like. There has been no air conditioning for close to a month now. Last week, my husband’s bowling league was held. My husband drove one hour to get to the lanes tonight only to find out that the league was cancelled for the evening as the A/C was not yet fixed. The lanes should fix it as they have a commitment to their customers.


Took advantage of the Local Flavor deal for $30 for two hours. Made a reservation for 1:30pm on a Sunday. The place was not crowded and we had no issues checking in. The lane we had was very good and the equipment worked fine. I liked the old school vibe, no loud music or giant TVs above the pins. Bathroom was clean, very good overall. There mostly families there just bowling and having fun.

Danny Rasy

Front desk are great

Raj S

Love this venue. Had my son's bday party and it was great fun. Didn't have too much of food when we went. The pizzas in the bday party was not too good. Just normal.. Even with adult bowling its reasonable rates and very nice place.

Kira Castellon

Best place in town to bowl! Staff is friendly and helpful. Food and drinks are good. Clean and fun environment. Joe is amazing!

Devam Shah

This place is good for bowling and eating food

Omar singer

This place is really nice, has a good vibe and the gentleman behind the counter is super friendly. I really enjoyed bowling here!

Spike R

The customer service at the front desk was poor. But isn't that to be expected at all bowling alleys? There was no music playing the entire time my friends and I were bowling. If the air conditioning was turned on, I'm a monkeys uncle. By the second game we were too hot to enjoy another game. The only reason I would come back here is because it is close to where I live.

Raja Sankurathri

Needs renovation immediately...very dull lighting and atmosphere

Mohamed Aly

Great family fun and friendly crew

Patricia Harris

Service was good & the food was okay. They just need to clean the carpet and add some big screen TV and better music.


Very nice setting..staff is excellent.

prashant Nidgunde

Place wasn't clean.

Brent Sweney

Great place for leagues


Son enjoyed it. Staff was helpful. Look wise lacking a modern or new appeal.

Anne Hobbs

Whether it be family or friends, bowling is a good time! Loser...TK

Mayank Ahuja

The person was awesome and staff was great! Great service and facilities!

Ryan Yan

Their website has a $10 off if you sign up for their email club. But nothing would really happen after you sign up. Fix it or take the scam off.

Miriam Lagnado

Nice and wait line.....good service.....lanes were oiled....great experience!!

Tiffany McConney

Great place to bowl. Kids love this place

Laxminarayan Kulkarni

Very crowded. Service leaves you to desire more from the staff. Having said that, we enjoyed our first bowling experience with the little one. She scored more then her mother. We had to come back at 10 pm to get availability.

Alane Denise

Fridays 4-5 kids bowling very fun

Shaolin Moore

Nice place to relax & chill to bowl your heart out!

Rupesh Chinta

Solid bowling alley with great customer service.

vikas .k

Nice place to have fun, but lanes are always busy and the staff aren't helpful either, they have some attitude.

Kim Georgeian

Amazing! Great place for a night out. Joe the manager is very accommodating and always willing to help!

Jawaid Qayyum

Good place to have fun with family

Michael Violante

Always great people and friendly staff. Great pro shop.

mike c

Perfect spot for bringing the kid on a rainy Tuesday afternoon!!!

MJ Enriquez

Recently had my daughter's 7th birthday here ... we loved it! The party room was clean and very festively set-up, the staff was great - very friendly and accommodating. We got our food here as well - we didn't need to bring anything but ourselves. Both the kids and adults had a great time. The staff let us know when the food was ready and brought to the room - so we didn't have to wait, and our food was freshly made. We had last minute adults that showed up, and the staff was very understanding and gave us an extra lane, no hassle. The lanes were nice (oiled and well maintained) and they even had the automatic bumpers set-up for the kids. I gave our names in advance and who wanted to be grouped together - and it was pre-set-up for us. LOVED IT! Will definitely have more parties here. Thank you Stelton Lanes for a great time!


Lack of common sense morons dont buy their Groupon they're just trying to get business after someone was murdered there.

cynthia chan

The ac is broken. Dont bother going. The lane we were on the pins wouldnt reset. After the 2nd time, they moved us. That lane the ball poped up and something broke. We paid for an hour. After all these issues you would think they would give us a few more mins. NOPE. timer was off at exactly an hour even though we spent at lest 10 mins with all these issues.

Sharon Raven

Dude at the counter is super nice and people there are generally friendly. Arcade games are reasonably priced too! Its a good old fashioned experience.

Vineet Garg

Economical compared to Bowlero in North Brunswick. It's like you get what you pay for. Manager lied to us that cheese was over to make any pizzas and told that we can order from outside. We had bought the family special of $40/ hour in which we can buy large pizza for $5. After 10 minutes somebody from staff brought 3 packs of cheese from store and we saw other people ordering. Then we were able to get the pizza as well. Ohh come on... please do your homework before giving wrong info. Other employees were helpful though. Other than that evening was fun. Giving 3 stars.

Cyrus Ortiz

I would give it a five if it was not for two reasons. Number one, the place was so hot that I can feel my face melting. Number two the bartender was almost never there. If you fix these two problems I will be satisfied.

Mariya Cherneykina

Service was excellent. The supervisor made sure we did not overpay for an expensive party package and refunded the prepaid difference. We really appreciate that kind of honesty. Our kid's party was perfect and the staff was friendly and attentive.

Jordan Howlett

Cool spot and good prices

Nuzhat Ebrahim

Nice service. If kids under 10 get a strike you get a free game ticket. We got like 6 today. It was really fun to do. You can do gutter guards and have a ramp so its easy for the kids to do and let me tell you it was really fun. Everybody in my family loved it so much. An amazing experience.

Ezekiel Dada

Some of the lanes are not working properly. But you can still have fun though.

Dmytro Kryvoshei

This place needs more of those "crocodiles" that help young kids to play. They only had 2, which is not nearly enough since they have 20 lanes and also call themselves "family fun" place. Otherwise it is decent place to play bowling

Patrick Oyulu

...great bowling experience when in Edison. Try it

Toaster With 1000 Subscribers

Food is ok, bowling lanes are good.

Roe Z P ReZ

I should have just stayed in Bayonne Lanes.

Arleen Cunningham

I bowl for a league weekly and enjoy this place. Definitely needs an update. Alleys and all are from the 60's....

Rose Lawless

Fun place, with helpful staff. The pizza is pretty good here!

Margaret Mechler

I went with my daughter and my nephew. We all had a blast trying different ways to bowl. I recommend this place for the kid friendly setup. They have these little dragons the children can use to help them bowl, along with bumpers. Toward the end, we were all using them and had a ton of fun!

Andrew Deng

Can become very busy.

Mike Cobucci

Great place to bowl with the kids. Clean and well maintained. They have the automatic gutter rails and the push ramp for the little kids. Never a wait during open bowling. Open when other places aren't.

Jerome Manahan

Very nice establishment. Courteous staff... Helpful when/where needed. Nice place to go and have a fun and relaxing afternoon.

Nilesh Jategaonkar

Worst place and very rude staff members. Not reliable to do any event.

Boring Mower

Fine for the kids... It has the thing you roll the ball down in the shape of some kind of dinosaur and bumpers. I was a little annoyed that the pin setter was changing the number of pins it was putting down each time. One time it put down 9, then 6, then 10, then 2. I would be pretty upset if I was in a league. The food is good for bowling alley food and the bar is nice.

Jackie Hurley

We went today to celebrate three birthdays in our family. Wonderful experience all around. The cashier was kind and funny, the snack bar worker and bartender both offered to bring our purchases to our lanes. All the employees were so nice, it was clean and most importantly affordable. We will be back:)

Muzammil Mansuri

Its good. But with kids we had to struggle getting lighter balls.

Goodie2 Shoes

Only here cause of Local Flavor deal. Otherwise not worth it. No AC last visit, place is old. Needs a facelife!

Olu Show

Always great experience bowling and the staffs are wonderful too. Way to go stelton lanes.

Andrea Atkins

The young woman prepared the food, took my cash, gave me change and went back to making someone's burger all with the same plastic gloves! When I mentioned it, I got attitude. She did not seem to know how dirty cash was. Disgusting! What's the point of wearing plastic gloves? To protect HER hands???

Paul Kulkarni

So so Okay. Not a great hygienic place to go around. Pretty dirty. good service though..

Ujjwal R

The bowling balls were mostly all chipped, plus other small bothersome things that dont have a large impact by themselves, but together they are very annoying.

Rakesh Reddy

Fun place to spend on the weekends !

Nirupama Chugh

Decent for teens

Pritam Mondal

Nice place for family for some fun moments but not for serious bowlers on saturdays.

Godson Chikelu

Could have been my best place only i lost the game to my niece.

Jay Joshi

Pricey, grimy, litty

Anuj Kapoor

Great family outing for a reasonable price. Kids had a blast and it was a lot of fun. Rock and bowl was awesome!

Lorraine Booker

It is a nice place to take your family and friends and see lot of tournaments I love this place

Samantha Phillips

Nice environment for the family needs music

Scarlett Cannon

I give 1 star cuz I have to. Customer service was very poor. They didnt have some food on the menu because the freezer broke. Then I was given attitude because they didnt have the things i was asking for. Bowling balls kept getting stuck and no one came to help so we went maybe a quarter down the lane to get the balls out of the gutter but after about the fifth time a gentlemen finally came to help and yelled at us to get off the lane. Then scolded us for having beer on one of the seats instead of on the table 2 ft away. Even if we were wrong you dont talk to people the way he did. I wont be coming here again. Very bad experience. Not worth it.

Anthony Fratesi

Good atmosphere. Decent price.

Johnathan Kraus

Definitely customer service is not good when ordering up for your bowling games. The lanes are okay. The atmosphere is decent. Mixed crowd. Very much a fun time with my friends and family. Price economical. But wouldn't want to come back and visit next time.

Monique H

Didn't let us finish our game and it was only 12:15am. They close at 1:00am

Andrew Hall

For A 26 lane Center it is One Of The Classiest Centers in The Northern Tier Of New Jersey.

johnny c

Not crowded and peaceful location. The place is outdated, but besides that, it is a nice place to go bowling.

khush paliwal

Lanes are ok types not that great for game lover but ok for beginners.

Kelvin Francisco

It was just OK, the A/C was out, so you can imagine how hot it was. Also, they don't allow more than 6 people per lane, and we were 7, sooo.

Salith De Silva

Customer Service could be a little better in my opinion. Didn't really like the attitude of the person at the shoe rental place. I had a reservation but they had not recorded it. Despite my claims and being there on time for the reservation they made me wait. The guy at the counter tried to make it look like I didn't make a reservation at all. Then I showed him my phone log and the time and date I had phoned. My advise is that if you have a reservation at this place make sure you sounded confirm the day before you go. Specially if you brought Groupons to this place.

karthik l

This place is NOT equipped to handle full capacity especially when we bring in children. Not enough bowling equipments to support kids.
