REVIEWS OF Astoria Bowl IN New York

I go with my school's Boy Scouts. They cater to the children. Have lunch and disco type dance for the little ones. They love it

The nintentuberTV

Really fun and exciting some games don't work though

Andrew Smolinski

Leagues, leagues, and even more leagues. M-Th no lanes at night. Sunday morning no lanes. All leagues. Call first and good luck. Open bowling is so restricted it's ridiculous. It's a shame, because this is a great spot as long as the timing of open lanes fits your schedule.

Donna Merck

The staff here is incredibly kind. We told them that it was my son's birthday so they placed a digital banner on the score board. The prices were great. We payed $28/hr for 2 people. We were able to bowl four games. I looking forward to our next visit!

Ismael Vargas

Sometime a little crow but nice place to be with kids

Sandra Satterstrom

They are super nice and friendly. They accommodate families and make sure everyone has a nice time. We love to bowl here!!!


Great place for a family/ office night out. Reasonable prices, food is okie. Service with a smile. Has a few leagues

Izzy Revivo

Nice place to go with family.

Morgan Robinson

Love this bowling alley! The staff are incredible!! The place is small but definitely big enough. It wasn't crowded on a Sunday afternoon. The prices are excellent!! They have a bar which is separated and food. This is great for adults and kids. We'll definitely be back! Everybody should come here!

Amira B.

This place is very fun especially for young kids. We and our friends join there together with our 5 yr old son just to have some exciting time.

Michele Escobar

Nice quiet place with decent bowling, balls need to be updated. None of the workers look happy to be employed. Food is expensive and not tasty.$6.50 for 3 chicken fingers. $3.50 for 1 regular sized hot dog, $3.50 for a handful of shoestring fries and $4 for a small cup of soda. No rowdy people so that was a plus. Music needs to be more diverse.

Monique Little

Went to Dino to get my new ball the Halo Pearl! I love it!

Elisa Daniel Jn Leger

My Organization always uses Astoria Bowl when we take our students on trips. The owner and staff are amazing! And always willing to make sure everything goes smoothly. We cam have any where between 50-175 kids and parents come out to bowl. And they always have a great time. You get to bowl, eat, play arcade games and have a good time with your friends. Go check it out!

Dorian Miranda

Great place for friends and family. I was there with some coworkers and I had great time. Bowling prices are good, finger food are delicious and good music.

Porcia Hubbard

Food ok, drinks are good. Staff are great

Richie G.

It was my 1st time ever here, my impression is that it is clean and friendly.

John Torres

Reasonable prices. Food is better quality than you expect at a bowling alley. Great place to bring children. Parking available.


Kinda old but ok.

jayden Rodriguez

Bobby Morales

My home away from home. Great time with friends and great bowling on well maintained lanes.

Miss B Black Stiletto

Great Family Place To Bowl. Clean and Simple. Bathrooms clean. Plenty of sizes of balls for kids. Had drinks at the bar which were mixed great. Food was clean and fresh bar food.

D Heredia

Very clean and organized great service will come back every sunday

vasundhara kataria

Fun place. Value for money

Athena Hagemann

Nice place and lots of food

Trisha Harripersaud

Cute spot family friendly and fun

funny laughs

Cute little retro bowling alley. Priced a little less than everywhere else BUT the lanes get stuck constantly. We had the balls get stuck and the pins as well at least 7 times when we were bowling. The couple next to us as well and also two lanes over. They may need to look into upgrading the mechanical work a bit. Staff is awesome though. :)

Jeannie Rodamis-Priolo

Awesome place.

Diana C

Share details of your experience in this place . It was ok it could be better

Dark Knight

This place is tricky. I I go there with my wife and 2 boys on a Friday afternoon. The person at the register says it is $60 per hour or I can pay per game which he says would come out to pretty much the same amount if we played 2 games per person. So while playing with my wife and 2 sons we decided to eat some food while bowling. As we were already into our second game the lights go off on our lane. It turns out the hours was up. So either way we had to leave because we had a previous engagement, but before leaving I told the guy I should have paid per game, then he says, "it would have cost the same", and I said only if we would have completed our second game before you shut my lane off. He then gave a bewildered look. If you bowl fast then pay by the hour but if you rest in between eating food taking your time then pay by the game and take your time. What a scammer.

Perry Woods

I liked this bowling alley. There are some more flashy bowling alley's in Manhattan but then you have to deal with crowds and no guarantee you get to bowl. It seemed like a basic bowling alley. Had a few arcade games. Bar actually seemed above par. Prices were pretty good for Astoria. Overall a good experience and worth going back to if all your looking to have some fun!

Maria Baires

bowling was fun but the food was nasty . chicken tenders burn, pizza looks like frozen pizza , nacho cheese chip hard cheese waa cold horrible.

J. New

I went with my youngest daughter & her friend. Had a great time this evening.


Nice place to take the family. Even if you have small kids they will enjoy it.

Google Z

Nostalgia at it's worst.... I used to come here as a kid for several birthday parties, it was the best place to be. Today, after almost a decade, I returned to one of the biggest disappointments ever. The staff is lazy and extremely unprofessional. Everyone seems like they have something better to do and can care less about delivering adequate service. I don't know if there's beef between the management and employees but, after this experience, you couldn't pay me to come back to this trashy place.

Alan Wong

Great service. They offered the special rate that we overlooked and saved a lot of money. Fair warning. Saturday night is Cosmic/disco bowling, if you are not into bowling in the dark.

Bek Bek

I liked recognizing Astoria lanes disguised as Penny Lanes on an episode of The Good Cop.

Franklin Rivera

Great place overall for friends and family. The food and drinks were great. The price range was not overpriced. The environment was spectacular. A must go bowling place.


It's great experience in there but little expensive.

Juan Carlos Feliz

Nice place, I'm loving.

Chino Villa

It is an enjoyable place. Big and spacey. Lit bit slow with the food part, but staff was nice. I'll come back

David Santos

Nice place and environment. Everyone should definitely go here for a fun night.

Nurse Amorly

I’m a committed, tried and true bowler. I bowl in various leagues at various bowling houses. Astoria bowl is a pretty cool place to bowl. The lanes are great for the serious bowler and also the casual, once in a blue moon bowler. It’s a great place for grown folks to get a drink and hang out on a Friday night, but it’s also a family oriented place, great and fun place to take the kids and hold birthday parties. They also have video arcade games, a full service bar and snack bar, lotto machine.

Nudoor Cor

Very nice, Decent, Clean, Well managed. Service, just a little old. A really nice and fun place with a great bar

Imani Rezaka

Very good bowling alley with great service and employees. Great place for teens to hang out. Their food tastes pretty good for a bowling alley and it isn’t expensive. It’s a very casual place. Also, it doesn’t smell like feet which a lot of bowling alleys tend to do. Another bonus is that their claw machine ISN’T rigged. People, including myself, often win the balls and plushies inside of them.


Its nice and clean

Altagracia David

Fun place with great prices

Grace Casale

Fun place to go with family..

Gianluca Scattoni

I'm not a regular, but I have been there at least 5 times over the years. The staff is nice and 5he prices are reasonable. I think the best deal is the 2 hours package for $80 which includes shoe rental. The balls are a bit scratched up, but good enough for some fun with friends or family.

renato vojka

Good place to bring young kids

Michael Ramos

Great place and awesome staff!

William Petz

CALL IN ADVANCE! This local Astoria bowling ally is great. Lanes are well taken care of, all modern auto scoring and the staff are always helpful. But because of its so popular with leagues and birthday parties I would recommend calling in advanced before you make the trip. It's worth waiting for if you do show up, just have a drink at the bar or bite from the little food restaurant.

Joseph Bieselin

Cosmic Bowling on Friday and Saturday nights is super fun :)

Casey Hastings

Great spot for the family!

Joe Junas

Great place. Can either play on the disco lights music side, or the regular bowling side. And they do have bumpers for children. Just a heads up, that you pay ahead of time before bowling. So if you pay for 3 games per person, and are tired after 2 games, they will Not refund you any games. It's their policy.

Jonny Sanchez

Awsome spot for bowling

Derek Simpson

Great leagues, well maintained and good staff. Good food, Bar available and clean bathrooms. They have the Best Pro Shop! Dino's Pro Shop @ Astoria Lanes is the Greatest! Thanks Dino for drilling my bowling balls and making my bowling experience a good one.

Oliver McLean

This is one of the last orignial bowling alleys I have come across in New York, just like ones in the movies and not trying to be pretentious like Brooklyn bowl. The atmosphere is relaxed and booze is priced well considering. Will definitely be back with a group! Only con is that it's quite far if you don't live in Astoria.


Funny thing, I didn't know it was a bowling alley when I was headed there. I only went because I very hungry and a coworker recommended it since it's close by my workplace. At the alley, the old woman who attended to us took ridiculously long to acknowledge our presence before even taking our order. I ordered the bacon cheese fries and the classic burger. I did not like fries at all. I don't know if it's because I ordered the string-like fries, which are extra skinny, or because the cheese tasted so artificial. I was also disappointed by how few bacon chips were on the fries. All in all, the fries were bad. The burger on the other hand was really good. You could tell it was freshly made. This, however, does not excuse the 30 minute food prep time. The meal is still considered fast food and should, therefore, be prepared quickly. I don't know which took longer: being attended to or trying to get the check. After about twenty minutes of waiting, we just walked up to the cashier to pay for our food. It's safe to say, I will not be going back there.

Debbie Leach

Lots of fun for summer camps

Teresa T

Great food selection, reasonable prices, parking available, so far nothing I dislike bout this place! I will need to take more photos the next time I return! So far ive tried their waffle fries, astoria fries, shoestring fries, and mozzarella sticks. They're all delicious. Their burger looks amazing when a friend ordered it but they immediately consumed it and I was unable to steal a photo.

Anthony Gonzalez

Pricey bowling but good venue for work group. Just have ur company pay.

Efiy Katanakis

Amazing place good crowd nice staff.

william keeley

Good wings it's hard to get a lane so call first

Dan Knauth

Nice inexpensive neighborhood bowling alley. Good place to grab a pitcher and bowl a few casual frames with a friend or two.

Virginia Portalatin

Great place for kids and family.

Ivailo Dimov

If you have a Groupon for Astoria bowl DONT GO, ITS A TOTAL SCAM. They tell you there is a big line in front of you except all the lanes are EMPTY. Basically they want you to spend money at their bar while you wait for your “turn”.

Chelsey Pendock

Large bowling alley with decent prices.

Osama Adil

Pricey and on weekends they only offer cosmic bowling which is weird for adults.

Debra Conwell

We all had a blast!

Justin Perez

It is a very nice place and the owner welcomed me very kindly

Kim Brown-Jerry

Mike Schnall

Nice spot!

Daze Aroche

Great place to take the family. They are willing to accommodate large groups so long as you coordinate with them ahead of time. Reasonably priced.

Michael Yahuda

Nice bowling alley

Karina Lizzeth Sanchez

Loved it the first time and loved it again

Tom McDonough

Except for accidentally over charging me at the bar (yes they have a full bar) it was such a fun time. Happy birthday party.

Kaan Balimtas

Fun place to bowl! With bar and food, good prices

Kevin Bravo

Best place to bowl and to eat pizza with fries and soda. The music and the lights and the area is lit

Susan G

Staff helpful and attentive. Everything clean and well organized. Lanes had apparently just been oiled, so conditions not the best, but we were there for fun, not league play. Will go again!

Gee Parker

This spot is nice. A bit out of the way, but otherwise clean and friendly.

Armando Campos

It's a great place. They have a lot of lanes and it has a bar and like a locker space upstairs. Staff is very helpful and nice. Small area to eat. Overall a great place to bring your kids and have a good time.

Talvinder Bansal

Well priced and right next to a bus stop - no music which felt a bit weird but enjoyed our time here

Regan Parisienne

Great music on a Saturday night. Liked the atmosphere.

Elissa Martinez

Was there are an 'adult' birthday party and we had a blast!

John Proctor

Expensive as F.... $44 for 3 games on 2 ppl....i mean really...

Aditya Saurabh

We had a lot of fun, even kids could bowl using a ramp.

Andre Adams

Best bowling alley in NYC. Good vibes, great prices, wonderful sense of community.

Orlando A

Great time and great staff.

Christopher Traverzo

The coolest bowling alley ive been to in a long time, good music and the staff was great !!!!

Tomas Caban

Been here multiple times over the years and it's always a great time. It's perfect for adults and children .. Always a Great Time!

Jessie Cowan

Up to date, fun and friendly. Good lanes, trouble ball return and fabulous pizza! Also a fun bar!

Daniel Heinzelman

Friendly staff. Great lanes with a modern bumper system in place for kids or adults who want to make use of it. There's food, and a bar.

Jerry Rudyk

Good place for parties. Decent food.


Good bowling alley.


My home league here

David Fonville

Pretty decent place to bowl. Very diverse groups of people. I, personally, like that. Everybody minding their business and having a good time.

Josh Whitehurst

Nice and friendly staff. It shows that they take care of their lanes. Small pro shop, but had a great experience getting new plugs.

charnelle saint-laurent

It was fun but one of our lanes kept malfunctioning. The food wasn't that great I got pizza it was cold so I asked them to reheat it. The waffle fries were good.

Ryan Shatford

Okay, I'm an avid bowler so I love good bowling alleys. Astoria Bowl is a great bowling alley if you are looking to bowl. I wouldn't expect much more than that though

Giovanna Edwards

Great place very nice and clean my kid had fun. Planing to go back soon.

Santos Cardona

Great place for a birthday party!

Mike Z.

The general vibe of the bowling alley was very lively and lighthearted; the animations for getting a strike, getting a spare, gutter, etc. were a nice touch; food there defied my expectations with simple but tasty options (albeit a little salty!)

Jimmy Moreno

Nice place to have a good time with you family special if you have any children under 15. Prices are ok

Allaine Allen

The place was clean and it was a fun atmosphere but it took like 30 minutes for an order of sliders and fries come on

Brian Morgan

Great bowling alley for friends and family. Plenty of lanes, friendly staff and a clean bar/dinning area to host parties. Best deal of the week is Sunday nights, when $14 gets you two hours of unlimited bowling.

Elianny Salcedo

The staff were very friendly, the food was pretty good. We really liked the Astoria fries with feta cheese and the sliders. Prices for food and bowling are very reasonable.

Dan Jay

The perfect divey bowling alley. They don't have fancy screens, or live music, or a cool club atmosphere. This is just a good old fashioned place to hang out for a few hours. Plus, it's still very cheap for New York, probably due to its out of the way location.

Alex is cool

Today I went to a field trip here and it cost $13 but it all fine because I got to bowl and have a free soda can,friech fries,and a pizza it was fun from :Alex Dong

Big Tone

Very good prices during they week are very cheap.

Tj Kim

I have league here :)

Boo Key

Nice people. Make sure u call b4 going. Sometimes bowling leagues are playing. Bar & food are good. They used to have a fish bowl drink, but no more


I go here all the time with my family and on school trips always loved this place, but this year we are going to a place called “bowlero” looks like you’ve got competition I love this place and when I saw the reviews at bowlero people said the pin machines didn’t work and other stuff if I’m getting ripped off I’m going to ask if we can come back here I love this place. Going to see if bowlero is as bad as it seems or if it’s decent

Nikki Gregg

Atmosphere is nice. Ample parking. Very spacious. All staff helpful.

Shaeq Ahmed

Nice bowling lanes. Needs a little renovation to make it new again, but I love the current look and feel. Pricing is good


The lanes were well maintained and the staff friendly enough. Took forever to get an order of fries though.

Evelyn Diaz

The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Great for family and Friends get-together.

Joseph M

Best place to go bowling.

Delorah Esty

Lanes have too many glitching and the music sucks.

Jeffrey Cabral

Great place for the family... Staff is nce and helpful..

xhovan garuli

Best place ever.

Ron Burey

Employees had attitudes. Food was pricey. We asked for a specific lane and was told no because that lane was reserved for a team, but in our hour there, no team ever showed up. Worst thing though is the attitudes of the employees. Not the type of service I want to spend my very hard-earned dollars on; therefore, I will not be returning. And I urge others to do the same.

Rick Juulian

great service, food and quality time with friends & family

Sandra Vásquez

Fair price, clean and pleasant place

Juan Lopez

Good family fun...lotsa lanes

Marilyn Bermudez

Great Affordable Place

Cynthia De Jesus

Went here with a groupon and played for 1.5 hours

dino chang

The real bowling alley for serious bowlers and for casual bowling as well!!


Could be cleaner. Price is decent

Frank Morenzi

Awesome time tonight not a perfect game but a great time


Nice, old school bowling alley in an industrial area of Astoria. I'm a fairly regular patron. A little out of date with an occasional wait for a lane. Staff is friendly and professional. There's a pro shop, bar and cafe on site. Plenty of on street parking.

Yoonju Kim

It's not a swanky, modern, glistening bowling alley. Rather, it's one of those places that evokes real Americana. Plenty of lanes during the day and some decent beers on tap.

Indiana Gomez

Had an amazing experience.

Constipated Duckling

Great experience with freinds on school trip . Fun ! Good service and food!!


Excellent for groups and kids

Shu Susan Chen

The place has about twenty lanes. Each lane has a score board which keeps track of a maximum of five people. There's a diner inside the bowling alley with seats. I'm giving it four stars instead of five because one of the lane has technical problems and the group that was playing there wasted time waiting for it to be fixed. They have separate bathrooms for men and women, and the women's door has a wheelchair accessible logo on it. There's only one toilet inside though, so be sure to lock the door.

Steven Caceres

Nice chill place to bowl.

syfur rahman

The bowling experience was fun and the lanes were bigger than other places but unfortunately there was no 11,12, and 13 pounds bowling balls. I went there like more than 7 times and a lot of the times it is usually crowed. They have a youth league and a senior league and it is free. You can host parties or events. They also have a bar, that's renovated and the tv's are high defention flat screen televisions. The lighting during daytime is not bright. The fires are not that good. The kitchen is small and they use microwaves to heat things. Everything is already made and they just put little stuff and just heat it and give it to you. If you get corn nuggets let me tell you one thing, they don't have chicken inside them and they cost $4.50. For all the people that like chicken. They have chicken fingers for $6.50. They have onion rings for $4. The fires( shoestring ) cost $3. 25***WITHOUT CHEESE*** and with cheese you need to pay $0.50cents more. Or you can get the Astoria fries for $4.50.

Nieves Pena


CheesecakeCupcakeStuff !

Unfortunately you need to Call Ahead... Never go when there's a school or summer camp... after over an hour and a half travel time we had to wait until the group left! In addition the girl at the counter was kind of rude...but the manager was nicer. We haven't bowled yet...still waiting...will update afterwards

Jannette Langer

Big and clean.. Good environment good for family time and friends

Alfredo Sanchez Jr.

Not a bad place for family fun and they are very affordable compared to other bowling places I've been to.

1789 FloW

Is ok

Beverly Bailey

Had a great time, I will be back. Westchester and Harlem was in the house. Happy birthday Theresa


Went to this place on a school trip several times and I had an amazing time. We were allowed to recommend whatever songs we wanted to, and the food was great!

epicdude 2

It's your typical family bowling alley

Leonardo Dixon

Great time and no kids running wild


Nice family friendly atmosphere. Good food options. Great bar! Everybody here is nice and very helpful.

Matthew Small

Nice place to take the kids. Only $12 for a game for 3 on. Monday with cheap shoe rental. Also, right next to the Q101 bus stop from midtown. Much better than paying through the nose at Bowlmor in Times Square or Chelsea Piers. Bumpers were programmed at the front desk to rise just for the kids and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Blue Bomb

Won't be crowded if you're worrying about that. Food is decently priced and the staff there were very kind and respectful. Great bowling rink!

Alisha Aguasanta

This place was homey and affordable. It has a parking area which is a plus. It was easy to get to from the city and a great alternative when the weather changed my plans. :)


Good place for family

Phillip Garner

Not a lot of lanes, but cozy.

Leslie Lebron

Fun for kids and adults. The food was just okay but any of the staff we interacted with was great

J.C Ramirez

Worst place ever service is horrible, they always have bowling champions so there's never a lane open for outsiders! NEVER COMING HERE AGAIN GO SOMEWHERE ELSE WHERE THEY VALUE YOUR $$$.

mike nesman

Cozy spot but with a few kinks. Number 1 is the bowling balls. Too many cracked balls. Second, if you go when its slow, you wont get AC and you'll be uncomfortable when bowling. They have a tendency to place you next to other people instead of spreading people out. I've also had to be moved to another lane for the sake of a school league smh. This sort of thing should be thought of before putting me in the lane.
