Very nice lanes, great restaraunt as well

Casey Mizgorski

Every time I go the lanes are all taken by leagues but there is NEVER any posting about this online or otherwise. I'm so sick of driving there just to be turned away. It's cheaper for me to drive 40 minutes to a nicer bowling alley then this one that's 10 minutes from my house.

Alex Parker

Great prices. Friendly and well kept

Great place to take the kids

Tyia Wilson

I wish I could give this zero stars. HORRIBLE customer service and RACIST! Don't waste your money and time on such a terrible place when there are soooooo many better places to bowl.

Phenomenal bowling experience. Highly recommend!

Brittney Hart

Dave Hall

The lanes 37 and 38 very slow. 20 min slower. Than other teams for 3 games. Lane. 41 would not return ball until a second ball was thrown. Lanes 43 and 44 intercom hasn't worked for months.

Lisa Barton

The only downside to this awesome bowling lane is that they sell decent food but for some reason no kind of dessert, such as ice cream, not even candy!

Sean D

I bowl here on a league. Well taken care of lanes. The food there is great, and the lane servers are fantastic (Paige) top notch. I wish they had a pro shop.

Diane Hull

Donna is such a nice person!!

This place was awful. I went and had a coupon and was told the wrong price and he tried charging me so much more. The guy ripped us off and than lied about it. He didn't explain anything to us. I am a younger girl and I wanted to go and have a good time with my friends and instead I was left getting ripped off of my money. My experience was not one I want to remember. I don't not recommend coming here. The assistant manger didn't want to help at all and lied about everything. He was just out for the money. So this place is for you if you would like to get ripped off of your money and then have a assistant manager lie about what he told you.

The old man running the front counter COULD NOT have been anymore RUDE! Just plain ignorant! I took my kids somewhere else. I'll never go back.


This past weekend we went Bowling at Forward Lanes in Squirrel Hill. Well...I am seriously thinking of taking up this sport. Today I went close to home Princess Lanes! I was sad to hear that their Neighbor Royal went out of business. They had duck pins there. Princess is still here! It is close and has that Retro look and feel all Bowling alleys should have. (I dunno why but Bowling needs that good old fashioned look.) Anyway I was the only one there. Which is good! I just wanted to get some game in. I practiced the new technique for years I had thumb index and middle finger. This time...the way you are supposed to thumb middle and ring finger. I also push the ball the wrong way. The back of my hand is forward. I am going to try to fix it. I bowled in high school but it was family fun nothing serious. Besides no one had Internet then so how was I supposed to know I was doing wrong? I was winning at Forward! The monitors have cartoons! You can see how you did when you step back and watch Mr. Bowling Pin do dances and stuff. I like that a lot! This is summer pricing $2.00 plus shoe rental. Bring Cash. Cards cost $10.00 extra minimum surcharge. Don't do that. $4.25 is fall and ever other time pricing. $3.00 is to rent shoes keep that in mind which is a good price by the way. All in all I played 2 complete games and rented shoes it came to be $6.00 which is cheaper than back in the day. Parents payed a lot of money to see us make fools of ourselves. Saturday mornings 9am to 11am is GREAT when you just wanna play in the slow hours. Or like's Monday it was like 5:00 pm no one there. Early mornings during the week is good too if you want more privacy. Everyone is friendly and you can ask them what works for you when time is concerned the best times for Leagues the best times for family etc. Princess is getting a makeover but that does not affect your gaming. They are doing Cosmic Bowling but that is at night and I like to be home. I dunno I will think on it. They don't drill bowling balls. That is why I am going to Dick's out in South Hills Village. I gotta see that selection and some shoes. I really really want to do this every week!

Adam Powers

The facility was pretty clean and the Sunday morning "all you can bowl" deal was good for us. The TVs need upgraded. We had a kid bowling with us and that meant we ALL had to use bumpers. Overall it was fine, but nothing special. The lady at the counter was very nice to us.

If you are a serious bowler this place is not for you. It is not a sanctioned USBC center. They have zero sanctioned leagues. The staff is rude and uncaring. I have had numerous balls damaged there because of poorly maintained equipment.

General manager when asked what I wanted to eat I said I didn’t get a menu and said I didn’t know what there was to eat. She rolled her eyes at me and was being very rude. When I asked for two sauces for my chicken tenders she said you only get one. Not even asked if I wanted to pay extra for it. Very inconsiderate and would recommend not coming here.

This is rated on the restaurant inside the bowling alley. Food and service was awful. Couldn't eat burger it smelt and tasted horrible. I believe the meat was bad. Stay away from the food!

Chelsey Smith

Kari DeHaven

Way overpriced! Almost $30 for a cheese and pepperoni pizza! Bowling Alley pizza And it was frozen. $37 for a family of 5 to bowl one game. The bathrooms were disgusting. So disappointing.

Jaysen Roth

Some people on here giveing there rateings have some real life issues! And its not this place, I had a great time here. If you are looking to smash some pins! Go here. Food was good, what are you to expect??? (* it's a bowling allie people not a 4 star restaurant! *)

Worst bowling alley I've ever been to. Me and my girlfriend went there on Saturday 4/1 around 10 pm. While getting my shoes, I asked if they were still serving food. They are open until 1. the lady working the front desk told me that I can ask in the bar area and strangely said if I have any problems to come get her. I asked why I would have problems and she said they have had the "chef" try to close down early recently when they weren't busy but assured me no matter what the kitchen is still open. I walk in to place an order and immediately am told that no food can be made they are closed. This is 1030 on a Saturday night and are supposedly open until 1. I went back to the lady at the front and she said she will have him make me some food. I refused. Just what I want, some guy who i can't see making my food after he rudely just told me they were closed. I bowled my 3 games. Was not offered any coupon or incentive to ever go back. Will never go there again. Horrible customer service. Mainly on the kitchen, but the manager had every opportunity to take care of our bowling shoes, or even give me a coupon to bowl a free game if we ever came back. They just took my money, never apologized or showed me any reason to ever come back. Now I see why they only had 6 lanes going on a Saturday night. Stay away.

I called at 5:30 and asked for lane availability and prices i was told the prices and they said come in when ever me and my friends made the trip out and they told me i could not bowl because there was leather at 6 contrary to what i was told on the phone i confronted the man i spoke to on the phone and asked to file a complaint with his manger and he laughed at me and walked away

Haven't bowled here in years and wish they still had their duck pin lanes as trying to find duck pins in this city is hard. Bring back the ducks!

Let me start with the positive part of this review. Princess lanes is reasonably clean and I don't think the food is too bad so if you are just looking for a place to bowl for fun it is fine. However, if you are a serious bowler, this place has some serious issues. I have bowled in leagues here for multiple years and after this past year I will be leaving with the rest of my winter league. The oil distribution is in my (and many others) opinion is not a consistent league shot that you would expect. They have been messing with different products and a new oil machine for the past couple years and it has gotten pretty bad. There is a lack of basic maintenance causing pins off spot, breakdowns, pins bouncing out of the back, missing dots,foul lines, screw covers on the approaches, and even a lane or two on which the ball will bounce if you land it in the correct spot. (Stay off lane 40!). In addition, they seem to want to spend money on things like new pins, new oil machines, and it is rumored a new scoring system which will do nothing to fix the basic issues I mentioned above. They also are now stuck with 3 different lane surfaces throughout the center which makes things even more goofy. I sincerely hope that this place is able to find some new management and get back to what it was years ago when it was one of the best centers around, but for now, it is unfortunately in pretty bad shape and I would not recommend it for league bowling.

Great time!

DJ Harris

Don't ever give these people your credit card number over the phone to reserve lanes for any kind of party! I gave these people my credit card number to hold our lanes for my son's birthday party and the person who took my reservation stole my card number and ran up my bill. I am still in court fighting to get the charges taken off. Otherwise clean, reasonably priced, and friendly service.

This place is RACIST . The spikey hair man that was at the front desk on Friday night in bright green shirt ( who I believe is the manager John) was extremely rude and ignored me after I stood at the front desk for about 5 minutes . He then immediately spoke and helped another white couple who came in after me and gave them shoes . After I finally asked him why he was ignoring me he said the wait will be 25 minutes . He then gave the other couple a lane with 5 . I had my 9 year old son with me and even he asked why we were there first and they went ahead of us . This is my second time having an issue at this place and I will never return. I encourage people to avoid this place and go to a place where they will be treated fairly.

Shadowfox 853

This place is horrible. I can't count the number of times I have tried to go bowling here yet have been turned away because it's "league night". Don't listen to the website about their times, I brought that up to the front desk and their response was "it lied, we can't do anything about it". Absolutely ridiculous! I've even been there on a Friday night and was told it was league night but I could wait till after 9pm for a lane. The food is overpriced and not very good. I'm pretty sure the good reviews on here are either fake or by the league bowlers...

Gerry Komoroski

Bowl every week there. People r friendy & food is good

Antonio G

Worst experience ever! Overpriced Beverages and overpriced games that are not even able to be completed and the guy at the register! He made it obvious that he works for minimum wage. I cannot wait to report this garbage dump to the Better Business Bureau! Regret ever coming here! Wish this place did not even exist! Worst money I spent in my life! I would rather walk up to Donald Trump and light it on fire in front of his face!
