REVIEWS OF Surfside Bowl IN North Carolina


Arcade games are a rip off. The machine shows you an error, and after speaking with a staff memnbrr about the issue he just smirked and said “that’s been happening all day”. Really idiot, put a “do not use” note on the machine. This place will not get my business anymore.

Felicia Cochran

I've only been to this bowling alley twice and both times were pretty good.

Anna Pearson

Always have a great time there

Rick Brown

Surfside bowl is always a fun place to bowl and eat and drink. Beer prices are a little bit high.

Jeff Dressing

We had a great time at Surfside Bowl! Thank you for host a bowling party for the J1 Visa Students and volunteers! We really appreciate how friendly the staff is and the wonderful hospitality of hosting this party for the students from so many countries. We had students from Taiwan, Thailand, Jordan, Ukraine, Dominican Republic, Jamaica & China. Thank you Surfside Bowl for being such a blessing and helping us give them an awesome party before they go back home to their countries!

Mark Wallace Jr

I am a regular at the Surfside Bowling Alley. My friends and I drive down from Georgetown once a week to play on Sunday nights when it's one dollar. Last night which was a Saturday they have a "special" its $16.20 to bowl from 11-2. There was one lady in the bar area doing the best she could. The people on the outside became annoyed and upset because the worker was not acknowledging us. The last straw was when we saw one of her friends come and ask for a drink and get it right away. We became furious at this point from standing in line for 30+ mins of not being acknowledged. She threatened to call the police on me, for what I don't know. But that bar incident last night and I am going to go to higher authority about this matter, so it doesn't happen again.

Glitchy stystem.... terrible employees who are oblivious to the issues

Niki Howard

So much fun!!

Cari Humphries

We (a group of just 3) arrived on a Friday evening at 6 pm to get a lane and were turned away because they had leagues coming in who would take up every lane. We were very disappointed b/c we planned this bowling trip for several days and planned to have dinner just next door at Crabby Mike's. We had to drive a good # of miles to the next bowling alley. They should post notices on their website if there are no lanes open to the public on weekends. Bad experience here. I recommend calling ahead to ensure sure they have lanes open for the public.

Kyle Marlin

We go to Surfside Bowling usually once a year and always have a good time. The service is generally good, and the food is decent. It's probably best to show up on sunny days, as this place is slammed every time it's rainy or the forecast calls for it.

Randy Dorenbos

Fun place to spend an evening with the family. Kids had a blast and the food was excellent too.

minecraft hunger games

I go there every weekend to have fun and bowl with my friends

Buddy H

Great food

Beth Smith

They put people right on top of us when there were other open lanes and then the guy decided to oil the lanes while we were still bowling. So, we had to sit and wait while he did the lanes around us. Good thing we didn't pay for a two hour block or I would be more upset.

Arline Gallegos

Nice place to go for fun and with family

Nick Fratticcioli

Clean fun cheap had a blast bowling for the first time in yesrs


Multiple arcade machines don't work at arcade. They told everyone in the line one hour wait, in to make people think they won't have to wait too long and they'll stay and spend money.

Chris Conrad

Local discounts, food is great. Bar inside! Lots of fun

T Peel

Just had my daughter's birthday party here. Outstanding experience! Kids had a great time and we had no worries! Michael took great care of us and the rest of the staff was friendly and also helpful. They really go out of their way to make sure everything is going smooth. I would recommend visiting this place for a party or just to roll off a few games! Great job to all that were working today! Thank you! We will be back!

Laura Patterson-fasick

Good team bowling

Alexandre Dal Poggetto Cunha

Really good place. Good lanes and the girls in the bar are very nice

Cathy Billey

It's a nice place we had a good time bowling but the lanes are kind of dark they needed lighting updated

John Stensrud

Good value for Sunday bowling. Surprisingly busy.

Gary L DiClementi

Hadn't Bowled in such a long time, we eat at the restaurant and then bowled a few games. We had a lot of laughs.

torren byrd

A little run down, but still enjoyable.

Suzanne Johnson

Nice staff and great cocktails!

Andrew Fletcher

Great family experience, prices fair


Expensive, and the ice cream truck took our money!

Tommy Bueno

Dont waste your time. Made a reservation here and we show up 5 minutes early and they had given up our lanes. There were still atleast 15 lanes available which they wouldnt let us have because they were for the "league." Plnot to mention the amenities look like they are from the 80s.

Jennifer H

We had a great time bowling here on a Saturday night. We arrived by 7:30p so it was busy bit we were still able to get a lane. They're not overly pricey for food and drinks which is nice. It was $17 for 4 games per person. This did not include shoes. Again, it is Saturday night though! Monday they offer a discount to locals.

James Threlkel

Great experience. Friendly staff.


Called to ask if any specials were going on for tonight. A guy answered, Alex, & he immediately hung up on us. Tried to call again, & no one picked up. Would like if a manager could reach out. Never coming here

John Kearsley

I was there for an outiing. It is a typical beat up bowling alley.

Scott Carr

Like all bowling allies, it's frozen in time. Animations from the 90s, but the place was clean and the staff was helpful. No tech issues to speak ok.

Joy Bast

The food is really good! The club sandwich is amazing.

Matt G

Great lanes, friendly staff

Douglas Cook

Just great special employees.

Helen Van Alstyne

Lots of fun. Very inexpensive. Decent shoe rentals.

Angela Elliott

Clean, family fun, nice atmosphere, I enjoyed listening to the music while the others in my party bowled

Larry Carroll

Nice bowling alley and they have some pretty good family / group deals for unlimited bowling for 2 hours. My family had a blast!

Gloria Pringle

The kids had a great time.

Victor Causey

front desk guy is NOT Professional at all....rude

Thomas Port

Fun clean bowling alley and attached bar. They have put a lot of improvement into this bowling alley and it has paid off. They bar prices are very reasonable and the food choices are good and reasonably priced. Clean fun environment with plenty of lanes and good rates!

Mary Ellen Brodsky

Great food, you can watch your favorite football team on Sunday and play pool at the same time. Also, great place to bowl.

Nicholas Halka

Cool place. I recommend coming before the nightly black light events as it's more quite. Reasonable prices and well worth the fun.

Samantha Gallo

It's not much but it's a wonderful time for entire family! Kids have fun bowling with disco lights and parents can hang out on other side of the wall and play pool and actually have a drink and relax! And if kids want more there's always the arcade!

Naki Lamb

Great place to bowl with the family.

emilia natal

We had a birthday party for my son and it was great. The prices were fantastic, the bowling was fun and they didn't rush us and the kids had a great time. The food could be improved and they could use a few more workers. The workers they had were great though. I think the man who helped us was named Sean. (Sorry if I get the name wrong). He was so helpful and nice.

Nina Dre

Good place foe the family. Decent prices, alleys needs updating though. Other than that its always a good place to come.

Eric perry

Absolutely great place to bowl for the family, very affordable, clean atmosphere. They serve food and alchohol, and also have there own restaurant/bar. Perfect place to go if at the beach and it rains, there is also an arcade and plenty of things to keep young children busy, we will definitely return.

Kenneth Knowlin

A lot to do. Never a dull moment and it's a family setting.

jason labatos

Friendly staff, great environment, and great value.

S. Robertson

This would be a great place if they would just take care of customers and not act like you are bothering them when you go to bowl. Never seen such disregard. Also, tried to call two days in a row for information - don't waste your time It is taken off the hook and a busy signal is all you will get. No, I am not kidding.

Karen Williams

Nice atmosphere and helpful staff

Tabitha Graham

Had a ball!

Gary Secrest

Was a nice night Karokee after 9 to 1 bowling league 7 till 9 depends on lane breakage

jo kropkowski

Fun time with friends and they have great food too

Jeremy C

We really enjoyed our time here. Great family entertainment, my son also enjoyed the arcade.

Karen Brown

I bowl in two leagues on Wednesday nights. Surfside Bowl is good for league bowlers. As for non-league bowlers, after 6pm on Wednesday, its a 2 hour wait list after that much fun and decent food.

Liana Frye

Always a fun time! Great birthday parties and lots of lanes!

Donna Casey

Had fun bowling.

Beth Howell

Always a joy to go to a place i went to when I was younger. The place has not changed much since then. But now i can take my children there. They have enjoyed hearing about all my stories from going there 20 years ago. I am glad the place is still opened. Sad some other places aren't still there to take them to at the Beach. This place is always full of laughter and fun. Families and friends finding a common ground in a competitive round of bowling. There is also the great food and the arcade for all to enjoy. Attached as well is the Brickhouse lounge. We play a game of pool, throw a game of darts and enjoy the big screens. We don't actually drink but for those who do they bar is there for your enjoyment. A great family place for all to enjoy in many ways. Will go there again and again when at the beach.


Great food and great lanes!

Fred Lang

Good pro shop.

Paul G Bateman

Modern facilities with a great full bar and lounge, billiards by the hour and a huge game room for the kids. Good family specials too. Way better and safer than filthy old Waccamaw Bowling thats behind a strip club on Hwy 501.

John Anderson

One of my fave places to go bowling

Deborah Johnson

Loved bowling here on Mon nights when prices are cut

Tiffanie Campbell

Employees were very nice and helpful. We had a large party with several new very young bowlers and we all had a great time! The only complaint is there wasnt a baby changer station in the bathrooms.

Banner Shope

I had a fun experience watching a friend bowl leagues. Very crowded for a monday though.

Meow Mixx

Good people. Clean place. Managers doing well ;p

Emily Brahler

We had so much fun. Went on a Saturday night for my birthday. The lanes were full so we threw darts instead. It wasn't crowded in that area, the bartenders were super nice, music was great... it was a lot of fun and much better than the extremely crowded and bowling alley a few miles away!

Robert Burton

This is a Very outdated bowling alley! Plus it seems very pricey for the atmosphere. The monitors for the bowlers are still 4x3, so most names are cut off. They did not have a lot of kid bowling balls. I did not have great experience with lady at the desk setting up our games.

Tyler Loschke

Just went there the other night and it’s a huge and awesome place to bowl! The food and drinks as great as well. I’m from Long Island my family lives In surfside and I definitely recommend everyone to go to this place! Everything is well worth it!

Michael Lessar

Good place, a little noisy but must bowling centers are. Lanes were nice & staff was friendly.

David Harvey

This place has an awesome staff.

Whit V

It's a fun place to bowl. Older equipment frequently malfunctions though. And there's no changing station in the women's bathroom, so if you have very little ones and need to change diapers, come prepared to fend for yourself.

James Shackleford

Really enjoyed my time here. The family gathering was great and so was the service.

Ron Zenobi

Always the best place for good food and drinks. Great service and many TV's for watching your favorite games!

Randy Edwards

Good place to bowel

Gloria Robinson

Stopped to get information for upcoming event. Hope to return for great bowling.

Ken Dario

Had a birthday party for my grandson kolby ciuffetelli and was very impressed with staff, food and very family planned. I would recommend anyone to book anything here, and staff will make sure everyone is taken care of

Hakim Mustafa

Friendly staff and always have a good time here.

Dom Koplar

Good "rain at the beach" option. The lanes are well kept and oiled and the balls are in decent shape. The food was just "meh" but craft beer pitchers was a nice touch. The lady at the snack bar was kind of rude but our group had a good time overall. Their arcade was just okay - sufficient but not glamourous.

Mike Davis

The bowling alley itself is fine. Not family friendly at night on the weekends

D'sheild Eversole

I have a lot to say about this place. First of all the managers and staff here are so friendly. When we were leavong they asked about our visit and upon chatting they gave us coupons for a BOGO deal so we went 2 days in a row. The prices are amazing, the food prices are incredibly fair. The food quality is great when you have been to as many bowling alleys as I have, honestly. No terrible aftertaste in the fried stuff, everything was hot and cooked correctly. The shoe rentals were clean, the lanes were really nice, the ball selection was great, the crowd was laid back. When I come.back to Myrtle Beach I'll totally stop back here again, I wish our bowling alleys back home were even half as nice!

Pablo Gonzalez

Good bowling alley, kids friendly. There is food and drinks inside. Video games and pool tables if interested to do something else. The equipment is a little bit outdated, but everything works and the family and friends had fun. We will surely come back to get some strike outs.

RK Woods

Cool place for family fun...

Sue Findley

Besides bowling they have a good snack bar.

linda fulknier

Nice Bowling place. Clean, no trouble, good food.

Karen Anne Eichhorn

Great place in SC near Myrtle Beach to go bowling. My friend and I had a wonderful time there. Will definitely go back when in the area again.

Fun inexpensive bowling on Sunday's...


This is so fun and takes me back! It was a fun place and has a large arcade area with a lot of the retro games! I will definitely go back there. Next time I want to try some of their food. Many people were bragging about it while we were there. We had already eaten though!

Vanessa DeBose

Had a wonderful time

Jessica Boyizigies

Always amazing fam fun and incredible food

Wanda Gardner

Great place to bowl games

Barb R

Great value for family bowl.

Shaun Abrams

I grew up here. It's gotten older but not less fun.overall good value and just good fun. I had some great memories at the attached bar later in life, too

Misty Riggan

Beware I would give zero if possible. They falsely accused my son and his friends of stealing the shoes and breaking a rake arm. The night manager called the cops an hour after they left and refused to show the video recording. He told my son if he paid 150.00 on the spot he would not pursue charges. Unsure what business allows a night shift manager to request funds without an estimate for repair cost and without confirming what happened to the equipment. The situation was not resolved until the next day and it was confirmed that they did return their shoes and did not cause any damage.

brooke lopez

We called to make reservations for lanes because we had a large party we wanted to bring for a team bonding. Whoever answered the phone insisted we didn't need reservations on a Sunday. When we arrived there was a league tournament and we had to put our name on a list. They couldn't get us more than 2 lanes even though we had 30 people with us. They told us 30 minute wait, we waited an hour. They tried to tell us only 6 people per game but actually you can add 12. I mean sure it takes longer to get through a game but at least we were able to get all our kids added. Food was mediocre and the service was blah. It took 2 hours to play one game since they woulf only give us 2 lanes. They did refund us the money for the 2nd game without any problems so that is why they get a second star. We won't be back.... but thaaaaaaaanks!

harry potter Squad

They don't have a big selection

Natalie Woolf

Kids had a great time! We showed up on a Saturday night around 7:30 and only waited for 5 minutes for two lanes next to each other. The place was clean and friendly. We did not try the food, so I cannot comment on that.


I liked it. It is really old and u can tell they have not updated anything in year but it was a good time. The staff is also super nice there. They let me use one of the staff’s bowling balls because the others were too heavy. The price was just like any other bowling alley. Bring socks obviously lol

Lawanda M

Really fun to do something different

JT Hamilton

Good music, friendly staff and good Pizza
