Kids had fun. Kid lane bumpers are manual, so that was a little annoying since we only had one lane. Otherwise good experience.

Great place to bowl, very clean lanes but their food/drink area could be better. Just looks like it was a after thought and not as clean as the rest of the place.

Glenda Benton

Juan Castillo

Great service and food too.

Joshua Willey

Cheap beer is always a plus!

Jessica Hickmanytt

New favorite bowling alley!

Robert Stephenson

Thomas Ricks

The kids had a great time bowling

Elienai Aguilar

Very fun and cheap place to hang out with friends or spend time with family. The establishment has food, an arcade, and an old fashioned look. However, despite the look, it could use a amp up.

Carolyn Elizabeth

My boyfriend and I drove 40 minutes to Sanford on Sunday and arrived at 8:30 to go bowling. As we arrived, an employee locked the door on us and told me that we couldn't bowl because they hadn't had customers for an hour. Very disappointed in the way this bowling alley is being run. The employee was very rude and would not allow us to go in to bowl even though we showed up 30 minutes before closing time. Will not be coming to this bowling alley ever again.

Laid back, classic bowling alley. No frills. Nice time. Seemingly helpful staff.

Brian Medlin

We tried 4 different Lanes (1-4) and none of them were accurate at score keeping. The only thing good about the experience is it was a good time spent with my family.

Clifton Whilby

Always a great time!

The Kendale Bowling Lanes are the best bowling ally Iv ever been to.

alexandria ruffnix

It was really fun, the pricess are reasonable for bowling, food, and arcade games which take quarters not coins. The beer and margaritas were reasonably priced for a bar, and I didn't get to see the pool room. There's a lot of fun to be had in their arcade room which had a good variety. Music was good enough to dance at any age and food was great. Waiting to order took long enough that u missed 3 turns but I was assured this is unusual. We just sent other ppl up there with multiple orders, problem solved. The lanes however, were not slick enough, nor did they ever add anymore. The Gard rails kept getting stuck. Our ball kept getting stuck half way down the lane. I think they had to come get our ball so many times we just kept the Gard rails on ( which still had our ball stuck halfway down the lane) and it started to get embarrassing. eventually we just started getting the ball ourselves but were told not to. It could use an upgrade but with a crowd like that I Think they are on there way. It was the most fun I've had in Lee County since we moved from Wake County. Just wish we found this place sooner. My 5yr old son enjoyed his birthday very much. I recommend coming here anytime. About 4$ a game /about 4$ a shoe and 13 /person for 3 games w/ shoes included. But with 7 ppl 1 game was enough. 6$ Generous Thai dye Margarita. 3$ mini .

Gwen Williams

Fun place to go. Clean!

Justin Hudson

Needs a lot of maintenance! We were the first and only customers of the day and they put us on a lane that was in need of many adjustments. Pin camera registered 2 pins on a gutter ball very reliably. (Lane four, pins 3 & 6) Several bumpers for the kids were broken. See pictures for yourself, at one point the guy had to work on our lane (pictured). Bathrooms were dark, so I don't know if they are clean or not. (See pic.) There was a guy walking around spraying air freshener onto the carpeted walls, so, it smelled pretty decent. We had a good time. Twelve games was $53.00. That was the special if you prepay three games. There was 4 of us. That includes shoe rental. You be the judge of whether or not that's expensive. Will go to Raleigh next time!

Erica Crouch

Great place for a birthday!!!

My review has changed from 5 stars to 1 star. I came here the other day and no one was at the counter. I saw staff huddled at a table laughing up a storm and completely ignoring us. Some guy eventually came over when the chat was done. Would be nice if you guys weren't slacking on the job making us wait! Also I don't know if I never noticed it before or maybe we're having too much fun that we never noticed... but the staff just love to stare at you. Not looking at you play your game, they stare you down... As if it's rare to see any other race than their own take an interest in bowling. I don't pay attention to things like that because I try to enjoy myself, but that day I noticed it and felt highly uncomfortable. I mean the bowlers were playing their game and weren't nosey like them. Why were you looking at us? I feel like that environment is only for 'certain' people, if you know what I mean. From the moment we walked in to the moment we left. I waved at the fat guy that was staring at us and he looked away. How are people supposed to enjoy themselves when they eye you down like that?

Yesterday I went to the Kendale Bowling Lanes with some friends who were there for a Birthday Bowling Party. While there, I went into the bar room and ordered something for lunch. After I had paid for my food and the waitress brought it to me, I had just begun to eat when the guy from the front desk comes into the bar room and comes over to me I said hello and he tells me that the owner Cynthia Bermea Choosakul "Says That I Have To Leave" I asked him "Why" and He said he did not know. I asked to speak to her and He said she was not in town. So I asked him if I could at least finish my food that I had paid for and He said to me "I Can Get You A To Go Box" So I went out on the main floor and told my friends that I had been asked to leave and I had to go They were dumbfounded I think all of this has to do with the fact that the owner used to be in my friends list on Facebook and one day I posted something she did not like. I talked with her about it and assumed everything was fine Then I went to send her a private message and I found out that not only had she taken me out of her friends list . . . but she blocked me too. You know . . . it's sad that someone who runs a business can ask someone to leave simply because they didn't agree with something you posted on Facebook . . . and it wasn't even anything about them. Turning this matter over to the Chamber Of Commerce, local law enforcement and also getting in touch with the local TV station to do a "% On Your Side" segment about what happened I believe that I am owed an apology by the owners of this establishment that I have been going to since 1977

Had fun. Hadn't been bowling in 20 yrs loved it. Thank you.

Derrick Constant

I came here to bowl on a Saturday and walked in at 5pm. The guy told me I would not have enough time to bowl because of disco night which, started at 9pm. Also I called before I came to this place to check prices which on the phone the price was $13 and after arriving the price was 17.25 per person for 3 games instead of the $13 I was told. I drove 35min to bowl and end up wasting my time. I recommend going on post or to Fayetteville bowling alleys over this one.

ab g

Joy Lake

It could really use some updated decor. It's not too expensive. Everyone seems to be friendly & considerate of others. I've been there several occasions if it was to stop to get a snow cone @ snack bar, birthday party, shoot pool, or bowl, never had issue. It's acceptable for those with disabilities. They have the equipment to facilitate bowling from a wheelchair.

Knowledge Petty

A cook with better manors

Warren McNeill

Great price. Fun time!
