I only watched my friends bowl, but had a great time. A clean and friendly atmosphere for family and friends to go and relax.

Fun for the whole family ❤️

Thomas Rodriguez

Went to shoot pool. Atmosphere was ok. No drunken idiot bigots starting trouble "this time" like I've experienced in the past. Wait staff and bartenders are always cheerful and helpful.

C. Larson

Fun place if you like bowling. Been to a few kids birthday parties recently and they had a blast.

Amanda Adams

Great for family fun or for singles. The arcade is a decent size and the lanes are in good shape. The bar is clean and nice has nice pool tables.

Jeff Day

Friendly staff, new menu is nice.

Michael Watkinß

Good fun place to go.

Belen Rodriguez

1 star for the arcade area, every game had the message, "check back later" so annoying. Such a shame to see that arcade suck so much. Definitely not what is used to be. Not all the games worked and the process to get the tickets sorted is much better. Bowling is always a great pleasure and tons of fun. We had a bit of wait time but it was totally worth it. Lava lanes is always the best place to go for some family fun, the food is always good and the ambient is always vibrant.


Good food and service

Jl Johnson

Their food quality and selection has really improved recently, must be a new chef

Troy Norrell

Good place to chill with your friends. Drinks are. Ill drink at home for those prices...

DragonWolf Chan

Best bowling place ever.

Amber Edmond

Had a great time !

Jenna Taylor

First time going here. Didn't realize this place was so big. Lots of bowling lanes, arcade, food, bar, pool, lotto, and probably more that I did not even get to. Beer was well priced and bowling was reasonably priced. My son was able to bowl with bumpers and had a good time. Saw some people eating pizza that looked really good. Fun for all ages.

John Costa

Everything you wanted and needed from a night out bowling. Lanes are in great condition, score tracker looks modern, there is a bar, arcade and restaurant. Bathrooms were in good shape as well. Very enjoyable visit!

Betty Czech

Nice but need to pay more attition to cleanliness.

Robert E Fuller

What a great place for family and friends to get together and share some quality time together. Even if your not a novice bowler, the memories will last a lifetime. Had a great time here and the food is tasty too. So get off the couch and go enjoy. I did!

Sean Escobar

Went there for video games and just that entertainment so we didn't bowl because we were having a blast. I love the cats system for the game usage. No complaints.

Sharon Lou

Taco time is the best. Good & inexpencive. Bar is great, service is great. Will go back.

Caysha's Journey

Daniel Schwartz

Had blast and great food

Kristi Barone

Hadn't bowled in over 6 years. Things have changed. The scoring kiosks have lots of fun things. Very clean.

James Doll

A great place to bowl with reasonable prices. Lots of space and many lanes. A decent menu as wey. Fun for the entire family!

Bowling is good, but the bar isn't... the guy is not nice, and food is not cheap.

Juan Torres

Had a lot of fun with my girl friend, would definitely take her again.

luz valdez

Love their tacos. Chicken beef or pork. All where great. Love their chile sauces and Mexican cheese. So much like feta cheese.

Barry Ronda Curtis

Great time, great staff!

Fuzzle Bite

I love lava lanes. My only problem is the bar service. I sat for 45 minutes with only 3 people at the bar. I waved and called to no avail. Other than that I was very happy


Always good. Had a tall blue moon with oranges. Bartender and servers were very helpful.

Saul F

This place is great cheap entertainment lots of fun. Everything you could ask for at a bowling alley. The food was also cheap making my visit here excellent!

Scott Haer

Awesome bowling alley!

Richard Hitz

Really cool place to bowl and they also have other entertainment they're like the lounge you can play pool and some video games

Lisa L

Great place to bring the family. Reasonable hours and plenty of space.

Cortez Butay

I love bowling. Great bar

Dana dunbar

Had a good time there

Isabelle Pyles

It was kinda dirty, and all of the flashy lights make it hard to focus. I also feel as if the lanes weren't oily enough. I feel as if Roxy Anne is cheaper, cleaner, and not as flashy.

Amy Lani

Huge Mahalo to Lava Lanes and their staff. We were fortunate enough to have our Employee Party here and it was above and beyond my expectations! The staff was top notch; helpful and always available. The food was out if this world...from the hot wings to the Prime could tell someone really cared about the end product. My staff and I are so thankful for the great memories you helped to provide! There is no doubt, we will be back. Thanks again, Elijah and all the staff on hand!

Heidi Rodgers

My kids love it and the food is amazing

tamara ede

Awesome night. Our servers very attentive. Food and drinks came fast. We watched the game and for a busy monday night the service was top notch. We went to gamble and machines hit for us. overall great!

Stan St.Clair

Good food. Good drinks, great time

Anthony Ricco

Went to the bar here with a few friends to play pool and we were pleasantly surprised at the exceptional staff, clean and fun environment as well as the heavy flow of patrons. Altogether a fun and memorable experience.


Wow, the tacos are awesome!!

Ryan Pina

This was going to be a 3 star review but that was just based on the bowling lanes. The business as a whole is 4 star worthy I'll start with the lanes since that is the main attraction. The lanes themself are clean and well taken care of. The score machines/monitors have no real issues and have fun themes for kids or those just looking to add a little more fun to their game. I rate the lanes only at a 3 as I'm not a fan of the material the floor is made of. For non-bowlers it's not a big deal but for the experienced bowler it's not very friendly. The boards on the approach are very sticky and can mess up your entire game. The lanes seem over oiled or incorrectly oiled. I've witnessed multiple experienced bowlers either trip because of the sticky floor or have their ball go straight to the gutter with no traction for the ball to "hook". Lava Lanes makes this up with their other amenities such as well priced and tasty food, the best arcade in the Medford area and a great sports bar. This is a great place for a family night of food, fun and drink. If you're looking for a more "classic" feel to your bowling experience, check out the other bowling alley in town.

Mike Fischer

This is not only a Bowling alley, but also has a large arcade with numerous games, an Off Track betting site and an excellent restaurant with inexpensive pricing. The restaurant may be the best kept secret in North Medford. Nice menu selection and good sized portions.

Jennifer Price

Best bowling alley in town. Great food and great drinks. All around a great time every visit!

vinod patel

Fun, fun, fun!! For all ages. Young and young at heart.

Deana Roberts

We've been using Kid's Bowl Free for 3 summers. Always a fun time. Staff is super friendly. The restaurant employees are always friendly and always get our orders right and deliver quickly. After a mix up with our KBF coupons yesterday, Elijah went above and beyond to help us out.

Michelle Keasling

Pretty fun one-stop entertainment center. Bowling, arcade, pool tables, food, spirits.

Kylie Crovo

Vodka strawberry daiquiri is yum

Benjamin Karetnick

Awesome staff! Really friendly in the restaurant.

Brandon Erwin

Fun for the whole family!

Kim Warren

Thankyou lava lanes for donating to the ARC. We had a blast. Thanks so much

Tyler Furst

Great place to bring the kiddos. Family friendly environment. Always fun and the bar is great. Clean a friendly environment. Great food and lots of pool tables and great bartenders and definitely somewhere to go to have a good time during the day or night.

Bear Nshtuff

Great place, love the indoor smoking patio, smokers dont have to feel blacklisted.

Maurice LaTier

It's clean. It's well maintained. Very modern. But it's a bowling alley, so that "modern" is really just, like, mid 90's modern. They have bumper bowling. And even little "granny bowling" ramps for kids. Or adults. Who's judging, right? The arcade is all a dollar per game, but there is a section with skeeball that's only a quarter. All your tickets are digital. And associated with your gift card. So don't throw that away.


Fun place to bring the family

Tony Quil

Called to ensure there would be open bowling on a Monday morning. Was advised the lanes were open. Arrived with a large (5 year old birthday party) to find the lanes were closed to a league and wouldn't be open until 1:30pm. There were literally 2 lanes being used at 12pm. Sarah, the front desk person was unapologetic and didn't care at all. Apparently there's a reason Roxy Lanes are rated slightly higher.

Devon Abblitt

Lava Lanes is more than just bowling, and has gotten consistently better over time. The arcade is fun and the games are newer and changed on a frequent enough basis. All of the arcade machine are kept in good working order. The bowling lanes are very nice and I have never had an issue with any of the pin setting machines. The food has also gotten MUCH better over time. I had a taco plate recently that rivaled anything I could get at the local taco truck. The bar area is big and has plenty of room to sit and visit. They have plenty of bar games, huge TVs for watching sports and they even have off-track betting. If you are looking for a night out with friends you could do much worse, give Lava Lanes a try, even if you don't want to bowl.

Terrence Terrones

Killer spot for all your friends and family

Jessy Hummel

Affordable, fun and they definitely make it kid friendly. Big arcade area, lots of quarter machines. The lanes have bumpers as well as a little ramp for them to push their bowling balls. Nice portions for the food. Made a great playdate destination.

Ethan Marx

My goto place for a good time

Dean Peace

Fun place I had a good time!!

Joshua Johnson

This is a really cool bowling alley. Huge bar with tons of tvs and you can bet on horse races, apparently. They have a decent arcade, but its not great.

Russell Miller

Fun place. Decent arcade and not crowded.

Cody Croslow

Rachel in the bar is fantastic. 10/10 would recommend.

Deanna Luther

Been a zillion times, rented the party room for a baby shower, just brought kids yesterday and they added more arcade games! Great place! Great fun for everyone! The French Fries are awesome too!

Jeff Edwards

Bowling alley is good, prices good. Restaurant on the other hand not good. Waited thirty minutes to be told the food we ordered will be another while, too busy in the bowling alley to make six tacos? Needless to say we left went to del taco and we're out in 15. I will not return to eat at lava lanes

Tina Hinks-Layman

There is fun for everyone. L lots of flames and a huge bar with a nice menu and everyone is very pleasant. It can be very busy on game nights or if you like horse gambling then this is the place for you. Enjoy

Daniah Al bicyclechi

Pretty nice:-) enjoyed it alot

Trinity Branson

A good time every time!

Games Phere

Bro its amazing,the neon bowling bro

Shila Wattenbarger

Games fun!!

James Goodnature

It's a bowling alley

Rich Reynolds

Must warm up to bartenders before you get any sorry service. But once that's established it's a decent place for a cold one or two. Friday street tacos are a must for a buck

Bridget Bee

Lots of fun, a few broken games some that said check back later but good prices fun games

Cheryl Runberg

Our company Sherwin William's thanks Lava Lanes for accomadating our party.

Boodah Rodriguez

Cool place to hang out! Wonderful and friendly atmosphere

Sean Coast

About 7:00 pm tonight (Friday) I Lava Lanes Bowling Alley and Sports Bar in Medford, Oregon because they have off track horse betting and it's Kentucky Derby time. I usually don't bet on the horses so I wasn't aware of how they ran things. I asked the woman on the other end what time the horse betting window closed. The woman that answered said 10:00 p.m. I got there at 9:15 and the woman that ran the off track horse betting parlor told me she was closed. I told here about the earlier phone call and asked what time she closed, she said 9:15. She wouldn't let me place a bet. Then I asked her when they opened and she told me 6:45 a.m. (They open at 10:00 a.m.) Who does that? What kind of garbage do they hire?

Chappy Watson

Had a good time. Food was spendy as usual bowling allies

Janae Stubbs

Great family bowling. Pricey. Yummy food. Equipped for younger bowlers too. Nice staff.

Pamela M

Brittany took great care of us.

Sharon Tanguay

Nathaniel Cook

Great family atmosphere

Queen Angellica

Took my mom bowling for the first time! We had a great time! The cressaunt sandwitch was bomb!

Bob Sergi

Can't rate the food or service all we did was bowl but very friendly and helpful at the counter.

Jessica Sadler

Cheap food and drink specials... taco night is very good. Stylish bowling shoes. Per the usual... Good times had.

Dave Gletne

Love Golden Tee. Not one in Grants Pass

Megan Jimenez

Good value for a birthday party. Kind of chaotic checking in and not enough balls or rails for kids.

John Alba

Do not go on Thursdays. They have professional game nights so good luck getting a lane

Kenneth Duling

Awesome place to watch a football game.

Jay Jones

Nice atmosphere

Randal McDowell

Family friendly, and good atmosphere. I really enjoyed my time there. The kids loved the fries at a reasonable price too.

John Paul Vineyard

Play in the arcade had a blast. Then played pool with our friends and drank a little beer and wine. Good times

Jon Kramer-Morales

Had a blast. The food is great. There is a medium-size arcade, many lanes, bar, etc. Great place for a birthday, child or adult.

Thomas Prislac Jr.

Solid alley. Good food. Fun bar scene.

Creepyx 1215

Lava lanes has a very large selection of bowling balls, plenty of shoe sizes, lots of lanes so you will almost never not be able to play. If you are able too stay awake long enough you can participate in cosmic bowling which is when there are black lights instead of the normal lights and everything glows even the bowling balls. The food there is like a normal bowling alley food but a bit better. And the arcade has a vast selection of games to play and there is even a section meant for the younger ones. But the overall cost is a bit much just for one burger it cost roughly $10. But it is a good bowling alley and I would recommend going if your in the area and looking for a fun family event.

Stephanie Milliron

Good food, good service, lots of fun things to do here

Rasco Terra

This place is the best if you can hold your liquor. You can have endless amounts of fun. You get bored of bowling? Go grab some beers and then keep bowling. Is that getting boring? Go play pool. Is that getting boring? Get some more alcohol. Are you a teenager and under or a square? Then go play in the arcade and get some silly putty and yoyos that in reality cost you 30 dollars!

don boyd

Tonight's service was horrible. I have been going to this establishment for about a year now, fairly regularly. Tonight the waitress seemed to have a large chip on her shoulder enough that I said something to her about it. I will be going somewhere else from now on.

Riot Kidd

Love this place it's my home from home x

Victor Staten

Excellent arcade, fair pricing and kids bowl 2 games for free every day with sign up.

Android User

Cosmic bowling is a fun way to spend a Friday night

Mary Lewellen

Was ignored ,young skinny bartender behind the counter at the bar. Totally bad place to go.

Renee Russell

Had grandsons Birthday party there It was fun

Rob Hampton

The girl running the till by the door in the bar by the kitchen was super disrespectful and called me an idiot because I didn't understand what she meant about where to cash a lottery ticket.. also a lady who was running the counter where you get your shoes told my wife she couldn't have my sons special drink from his doctors because it was an outside drink and not bought from them and made her throw it out and my son went hungry there till we decided to leave to get his needs met

Angi B.

Great bowling and food! Fun games too!

Jesse Gentry

Great place to take the family.. Huge arcade an lots of lanes.. Good food an cheap cold beer

Jim Floyd

I was upset about the lack of support trying to find the token machine. We took our granddaughter there and i asked more then one person where to pourchase tokens. One of the machines was broken so pointing was useless.

Juliette Allen

This place is great. Lots to do. Bowling is always fun, only ever had to wait for a lane once. Large arcade. Bar with billiards. The building is kept clean, which everyone appreciates.

natalie casarez

Came on a weekend and had to wait for a lane... But the arcade help pass the time and the people are so friendly.... Found our spot to bowl for my family....

Please Help

The place is great for hanging out with friends. But when I arrived I had to wait for a while for the arcade machines to turn on, even then some machines where unable to boot up. It would be nice if the arcade had a little more games in it (especially games that give you tickets).

Scott Shaw727

Great seafood at boils and brew

John Ruth

Splitting the seafood feast is a good deal.


Fun vibes! This place has everything! Skiball, bowling, a bar with great food and pool tables for days! A great place to meet the boys or go on a date. Bring kids here too!

Charlie Kirschenmann

Pretty great deal for pool! Free Sunday and Monday!

Kinaya Walker

I've got to start out by saying that bowling has never been my first choice of activities, but my husband wrangled me into it. As bowling alleys go this place is pretty nice. I was impressed by how much work they put into keeping the place clean. Service was fast and the staff was up beat and cordial. I've been bowling a few times in my life but this was the first time that I really had fun. It definitely makes a difference when a place is well lit and your shoes don't stick to the floor, not to mention the bathrooms were clean too and that in my experience is a rarity when it comes to bowling alleys. I will definitely be going back.

Joe Gorski

A pretty good restaurant/snack bar

Jeramy Stuart

Very welcoming, I go for football, and has some of the best french fries I've eaten

Stephanie Q

We called ahead the night before to ensure there would be open bowl because I had family in from out of town. The guy I spoke with told me that there were leagues the following day but only at night. I repeated back, "so, if I'm there right after you open, we're good to go. Just not at night? " He confirmed. Fast forward to Monday morning, 45 min after opening - Sarah at the front desk says there's an hour and a half wait for bowling because half the lanes are closed for upcoming leagues. Even when I let her know that's not what the gentleman told me the night before, she unapologetically informed us there's nothing she can do. The lanes were literally empty. Shut down, lights off, everything. We were so bummed because that was THE WHOLE REASON why I called and checked. So frustrating!! Why shut down half the place for a league that isn't even there playing and then turn away paying customers?!? On top of that, give incorrect information and not do anything about it!!

Ram A

Bowling is good. The ketchup in the restaurant seems watered down.

Melissa Green

Lots of fun and good food!

Dakin Maher

Great Lanes. Easy pay and shoe rent. Modern super arcade with tons of games. Full bar, craft beer. Really nice place.

Rob Sanderson

Great food!!! I had nachos and it was massive. Deb had their Friday street taco special $1 each !!! If I had any negative comment it would just be how loud it was but that's more related to my hearing issues. Waitress was great!!!!

Tang Xiong

Cool Place to take kids!

April Celene

My children engaged in their summer bowling program 'Kids Bowl Free'. It wasn't exactly FREE, but $3 per kid for two games of bowling was definitely worth the time and money that they spent together as siblings! I went a few times to watch and really enjoyed seeing them bond with each other and learn how to bowl

Nicholas Young

The bowling facility is cool but the bar is great. Good food, good drinks and super friendly folks. If you're into sports they have a ton of tvs. They even have a heated/cooled smoking area if that's your thing.

Leanna Betza

Went there with work. These people are always great.

Donna Dufault

Superb..absolutely Fabulous...just had Our Company Christmas Party there ...we had a Spectacular Time

Jamie Fuller

Played pool and drank beer. Pool tables are a bit difficult but had fun
