REVIEWS OF AMF Lynnhaven Lanes IN Virginia

James Williams

too high priced, would not consider returning to this bowling alley. I would rather go to the laskin Road, or Indian River bowling allies.

Chris Walters

Great time. Spent 400$ quick avoid the bar! Pre game in the parking lot

Kyle White

Always a good time.

Christine Spruill

Great time and atmosphere!

Frank Alexander

I go here often, they just put in new video games too

Kush Kant Handle Me

Great customer service and they're hiring

Demetrious Mack

Good, but bumper rails are not automatic.

Paul Kane

Worst bartender ever!

Byron Pyatt

Great lanes, clean and welcoming.. will return.

Sara Almand

Lane broke twice during the game. (We were switched lanes which is why they get two stars.) The bowling prices were steep for a week day (not busy) day time. The arcade games were either broke or broke down DURING play. The manager was clearly unpleasant to the staff.

Jen H

I don't like the fact that when I asked if it was required that we rent and wear the smelly shoes that she said yes it is, so I did..okay whatever it's the rule. BUT why were my son and I the ONLY two people out of about 16 other people that had them on. Everyone else was bowling without them. I don't think we'll go back...not fair.

Tiffany James

Family friend but still adult worthy. Had alcohol as well as a kid friendly menu. Great place for the young and old!

Misael Reyes

Our league plays here every Friday night fun bunch. And service is great.

Sithay Harris

Nice place, too expensive. Need to lower prices to attract more patronage. Better to lower prices and have more people coming in.

Helen Taylor

This is a great family time out. We really enjoyed ourselves. The workers were really nice. My one and only complaint was I wish the tables were cleaned before they gave us our lane. Everything else was great. The guys at the shoe rental and our hostess were very nice!

Ashley Adkins

It’s a nice bowling alley, but for 2 people to go bowl one game is expensive. The food was pretty good though!

Matt Knight

Been here before. This past visit was not able to happen due to league bowling. Counter guy was super polite. So no big deal.

Darryl Royer

Great bowling alley. 40 lanes. Looks new. The food was really good.

Katlynn Brown

I came here with friends for a night out and o enjoyed it greatly. I'm not big into bowling so I did not partake in that activity. I did order the food which was good, a little salty for me but good bowling alley food. They have arcade games which I did play a few of and won some prizes. The pricing was very good and I'd happily come back and actually bowl this time around.

Chris Mangold

Clean and organized, we had a fun time, and they gave us a great discount since we bowled multiple games. Thanks!

Neil Gascon

Fun for the family and friends

Peggy Sandlin

Like this place people are friendly good parking

Kim Greene

League bowler here.... I enjoy the employees at this location. Thursday night before 9pm is not a good time to come for non league bowling as most lanes are reserved for league.

Walter Black

Good bowling..a little expensive

Patricia Harrison

Love special needs accommodations! Staff is wonderful! Helpful and friendly!

John Pribesh

Always fun but not sure why they always have to charge so much on the weekends

Nicholas Liddle

Friendly employees. Good arcade for the kids.

Ashley Magerkurth

Fun atmosphere. Great special after 10pm for all you can bowl. Only problem was the server was not around for our first 2 games so we were having to go up to the bar for service. Only 1 person behind the bar so it took a while and games were paused for a length of time.

Lisa R

I have had a few of my daughter's birthday parties here over the yrs. I wont say its the best but it is definitelty not the worst either. Most of the staff is fairly friendly. The food is decent (for fast food/junk food). And who doesnt live bowling even if you can't bowl? It is definitelty a good place to cut loose and have some fun

Monique Jenkins

Food staff service was terrible! It took an hour to place my food order an another 2 hours to get our food. I wont be going back

Geoff Warder

Service bad, beer warm, food terrible, furniture falling apart, price high.

Austin Simmons

The staff here is very helpful and very friendly...Friday night my friends and I went here and we had the best time of our lives I enjoy the rock n bowl specials that they have here definitely recommend this to anybody new

Katie Wright

Very expensive for a mid-Monday afternoon game, at over $6 a game and $4 for shoe rental, there are definitely better options. It's disappointing that the prices aren't different for children or seniors. The place was clean, so that's the only reason they got 2 stars. The balls were full of divets, and the lanes didn't have automatic bumpers, which means they were up for every bowler.

Juanita Uransky

The bartender was so much fun and the food was delicious.we had a great time and we try to get there every friday.the bartenders name is Kim tingle.can not wait until next week

vincent bessette

Kids love coming and bowling always get 2 lanes one for me and the wife and the other for the kiddos they love it I love how the inside has changed not so much on the out but come on and I'm sure you won't believe it either. Food is decent wild style fries my kids love and same with me and the boneless wings either sweet chili or honey bbq are to die for.


Awesome decorations noce place for family event

William Ward

Very Friendly, generally clean. We don't bowl often, but we liked it enough we bought two more Groupons to use there in the next three months. Lots of fun.

Scott LaRoc

Great service and big fun! Staff makes you feel at home! Our server was from Colorado and a delightful young lady

The Happy Nappy Trucker

Family friendly atmosphere offering arcade and bar. Weekly specials for bowling and food. Friendly staff


Place was very clean and nice..... Waiters and waitresses were very nice and kind..... Very Good establishment

Brandon Hassler

I would give it 5 stars but the price is pretty steep. Thankfully if you're military or veteran the price drops significantly.

Christina Holland

Its bowling! It seemed some of the front counter staff was flustered perhaps because they were busy! Overall it was a great time with family!

Sam L

Today, my friends and I went to this bowling alley. We had a lot of people so we needed two lanes. The guy up front told us to wait 40mins. After about an hour, we still didn’t get the lane although I saw a lot of open lanes, so I went to talk to the manager. I believe the manager’s name is Debbie and she was really understanding and really generous. She told us the bowling was on her. I love to go bowling, so I’ve been to all the AMF in Vb, Chesapeake, and Norfolk, but this AMF definitely has the best customer service out of all the AMF. Thank you guys

Israel Figueroa

4 people. 2 games, 2 appitisers, one pitcher of beer. $100. Not a family friendly price.

Amber Loyd

Very friendly family-oriented atmosphere great people great food I'll definitely be back

Linda Silva

Great staff

Chebria Sample

If I could give 0 stars I would. The shift lead Jessica is probably the rudest person I’ve ever came in contact with. When my husband and I first arrived we asked the prices and she told us $4.44 a game so we told her we would use or Groupon instead because it was $19 for 2 hours and we had already bought it days before. Flash forward an hour later we go up to pay and she tell us we have to pay $56 because we didn’t give her the Groupon Up front even though we told her when we first got there we had a Groupon. Then she continued to get loud with us saying we couldn’t use it bc you can’t use a Groupon day of.... we bought the Groupon a week before coming and that’s not in the rules of the Groupon so she lied just to be difficult. Overall I would not give them my money she known to be rude and it’s just not worth the hassle when there are so many other great bowling allies. They are also not military friendly there so please BEWARE.

D Steve

The best place ever! Ricky, DeeJay, Barbara, omg so many more staff members are awesome. Go visit, you will have fun!

perfect freetwoplay

Waited 30min at the bar where no one else was waiting bartender texting or something trying to ignore me very lame tbh. The cashier was an all around nice and helpful but when trying tip the gentleman, the company won't allow it???? Arcade is the most trash I've come across in quite sometime.

Norma Burgess

Really friendly people who work there and the atmosphere was so laid back considering we had small children with us

Anuj Goyal

Bowling place. Good place to hang out. Although, they can modernize a little bit, such as; the gutters should open automatically based on the profile of the pitcher, than someone of the AMF's team would do to manually.

Lynn Riggsbee

We had a great time!


A bit run down. None of the prize machines/arcade stuff worked. Home to the worst pizza I've ever had. Overall though I still had a lot of fun with my friends, and it was an average bowling experience.

Latonia Ransom

Brought my daughter to bowl for the first time and we had a great time. Nice family friendly environment.


Always a fun place out take the family. They do not honor military discounts on the weekend for some reason though.

Olivia Drew


Scott Simpson

Very clean. Staff was very nice.

Judarry Judarry

Everyone is very nice, make you feel at home. Bowling alley is clean. Very good customer service. They are always there to help you have a better experience.

Crystal Lynn

It wasnt even crowded and there was a 40min wait

George Ward

Party for my grandson's 5th Birthday, outstanding

Clare Mcneice

Had a great afternoon here today, played three games of bowling with friends.enjoyed some drinks and snacks too. Would definelty recommend this place for somewhere to go for an hour or two's fun

Kimberly Pritt

Clean and friendly staff. Newly renovated.

Paul Kemeter

Looked a little scary outside. Inside looked brand new nice place

Mary Kitts

Great place to bowl. A little on the higher side as far as prices.

Gary Klein

On March 12, 2019. I drove to the Lynnhaven bowling center off Lishele Dr. I went to the side door and it was locked. I looked into the center and lights were on inside. I drove around to the front doors which were locked. I noticed the hours of operation sign which showed the hours of operation as 0900a.m.-1100p.m. As I got back into the vehicle to leave another vehicle pulled up. I saw someone get out and I said to the guy, "The doors are locked". he looked at me funny so I made the statement again to which he replied, "I work here". He went to the door and was let inside. I guess the management and staff doesn't abide by what they advertise. Not the first time this bowling center has let me down by their actions but it will be the last.

Shawn O

Lane broke, waited forever before they finally changed us to another lane Mario Kart arcade game took 16 of our credits and still wouldnt work. Employees were rude Prices were high

Divine Empress

We enjoyed Paint Night. #teamross


Long wait times on the weekends. Nice lanes.

Robert Mangum

High prices, slow service if you can get any at all. The one on Indian River road is cheeper

Linda Russell

Too pricey.. wayyy too pricey

Halonachos _

Prices are just right for a good amount of bowling. Also don't let the outside of the alley fool you, the inside is absolutely up to date and looks fantastic. Food is average quality for a bowling alley, its no Cheesecake factory but its better than Wendys. One or two games and a pitcher of soda or beer will not hurt the wallet one bit. Newly renovated arcade area is also nice for those who want to hang out but not necessarily bowl.


If i could give it negative stars i would! The prices are TERRIBLE and the guy did not communicate very well. He told us it would be 4.95 per game plus shoes, however when i went to pay he said it would be 29.75! WE PLAYED ONE GAME! Needless to day we WILL NOT be going back! RIDICULOUS!!!!!

BulliMammi -

Revised review... Came in with our family and they were so rude when asked if there were any specials or if they had military discount. The manager even scoffed when asked. She said no discount on the weekends. It is disgusting to me when people forget that our that our service members serve every day and night even if it is a weekend or holiday. We spend a lot of money when we come here, I guess they aren’t I the business of making money. Or keeping customers. They will no longer have our family’s business Great hours and service. Very good prices. Fun place to go with my family.

Lorraine M

Bumpers up or bumpers down the entire game. It they updated that, they more stars.

james perrine

It's a real nice bowling alley .

Diana Ferguson

Come here every weekend and we will continue to come. We love the atmosphere and all the people around us, we feel so comfortable here, plus the food is fantastic.

Dania Gocheva

Very clean and fun place to visit!

Deneise Bradley

Good place to bowl with nostalgic flair.

Edward Romero

Fun, nice place

crystal cheresnowsky

The guy that works there ,I think his name was Brian. He was very helpful and he took good care of us. We called him at the last moment and he made sure we had a good time.

Cynthia Czaplicki

Most everything at Lynnhaven is spectaxular including the Management. Its a shame the some league officers abuse privileges by discriminating Gainst league members the dont like due to race and sex!

Nick Z

The hardware/software is a little out of date, but still worked well nonetheless. The lanes were nice and the service was good.

Joshua Johnson

The online special for Wednesday showed $8 all you can bowl, $3 drink specials, $5 flat breads after 9pm. When I showed this to the bar tender, he could not find the "button on the computer" for that special. Ended up talking to a manager who stated that he cannot give me any discounts as they do not have it in the computer. This is a classic BAIT AND SWITCH and FALSE ADVERTISING. They manager politely gave use a few $5 gift cards to cover this up. However it does not magically make the issue disappear. SHADY BUSINESS TACTICS. No longer will they get any money from me.

Yogesh Waran

Good place for best price

E Nicole

Great customer service. Food is wayyy better than PinBoys. Great family establishment.

Donald Wieland

Went there for my grandson's birthday party it was nice the service was good and the people are okay.

Ron Gregory

Fun, reasonably priced, leagues available. No wait for a lane most afternoons. Clean seating areas.

Mizu Sh

most beautiful behavior employees.

Ben Seddon

Had a really good time and enjoyed the food.

George Kerr

Great place to have a little fun.

John Hart

The lanes are in great shape, the staff was very friendly and helpful - knew what a serious bowler wanted - the open bowling cost is very high compared to other bowling centers in the area - it might be worth a short drive to save a few dollars if you plan to bowl a lot of games

Katie Mesich

The lanes are ok, we had to keep putting talc in our shoes just to slide, if not we would eat it from our shoes sticking on the lane.

david garwood

I always have a good time here. The Friday night bowling deal is a great deal.

Shannon Hamler

I always have a good time here


Great family fun! The hostess was awesome. She made accommodations for some people in my family due to the ceiling fans and we enjoyed our unlimited bowling. Someone ordered the boneless wings and fries but they were very salty.

Jessie Lowe

Fun place to take the kids on a Sunday. They had a blast!!

Robert D. Capers

I visit AMF Lynnhaven Lanes frequently, and it's a great establishment when it comes to business operations -- things like customer service, lane conditions, cleanliness, etc. are excellent. However, if you truly enjoy bowling, you may get frustrated with the disco ball lights and the occasional child -- or adult in some cases -- playing around on the lane approach.

Yeniffer Padrino

Nice lines, clean and we'll maintained, but that's about all. Service is super slow and everything taste very fatty.

Kendal McGanty

Best place to bowl at in Virginia Beach! The staff here are super nice and the atmosphere is great, too! The prices are very reasonable considering the comparable prices at other locations. Leagues here are the best, even for kids! My entire family have been on leagues here for a long time and its more and more fun every year! I would recommend this place to everyone!

Samuel Bogart

Nice place had birthday party there under staff slow with food order's

Julian Torres

The lanes are great, the place looks a bit dated. Minus 1 star. Plus in the "Arcade" only half of the machines worked. Minus another star

Andrew Orlando

Went to my friend son birthday party. The pizza and drinks were good. It was a fun time and every one enjoyed themselves

Justin S

Super expensive place. Would be better if I could rent a lane for an hour instead of having to pay per game... expensive food too. Would rather go somewhere else where I'm not having to pay for their upgrades with the price of admission and food. A plate of fries was like $9 or something outrageous like that.

Matthew Lund

Good time, not over crowded like the smaller alleys are. Good staff that makes you feel welcomed.

Erin Tinaro

Our group of 12 parents and kids was accommodated well. Service was good. All of the staff was friendly and helpful. I'd seen reviews suggesting otherwise. We were very pleased with our experience.

Scott Hummel

A bit more expensive than most bowling alleys I've been to, but none other the less just as good. Very popular too. Parking is good and the location is perfect to get to.

Debra Williams


frisky stud

good set of lanes

Carlos _

Extremely fun in nice place to go with the family the food is good.specially go there have the wings, bonelessthe drinks at recently priced for the area.

Johnson Christophers

Great place to come and have a stack and bowl!

ThatClassicFriend3 3

Really great service

nishanth narendra

This place as usual like all other bowling alley's. The shoes offered are old and not good.pricing is good and promo offers are good

Doris Gray

I could not enjoy my games while playing, due to the fact the lanes were not working properly. Had to switch to another lane and that one also wasn't working. Was mot an great experience

Elzia Smith

My kids went and had a blast with their nana

Trisha Kissel

The staff was very accommodating, and the bowling alley was well kept. The reason for only 4 stars is because they didn’t offer a military discount:(

Dustin List

Always have a good time and they have great unlimited bowling specials

Jeremiah Brown

The staff is pleasant and helpful. They remember their customers and make bowling fun for all ages.

Sean Hanrahan

Fun place

jiu jai

Look, overall everything was good on my visit, staffs are nice, helpful, atmosphere is good, price is too high and the balls could be cleaner but that's not why I gave them 2 stars, it's the lady who works inside the cafeteria who thinks that she's a smart ass. First, there was a guy in front of us who bought a beer and they spent 5 mins chatting even we're standing behind them. Anyways my friend bought a bottle of water and I saw a dispenser with water n cups on the side but it's near the "staff only" area so I asked her if the water is free for customers. Since the music was too loud so I didn't hear her but she probably said yes so I tryna ask her to repeat that and said "excuse me?" And the next thing she said was "The answer is either yes or no so it's yes." and kinda smile like haha so fk funny. I was shocked becuz I smiled the whole time and my "excuse me" is not rude at all, and idk where did that attitude came from or she was tryna make a joke or what but that sounds like a rude employee wanna act smart and talk back to her customers. It's a shame that your coworkers are nice but people like you just like to act smart and screwed your store's ratings. I hope she gets fired immediately or learn how to talk like a normal person or else I will never come back.

Ebony Gaskins

Yes went Saturday Had A Ball With Family and friends my 2 Yr old was bowling and striking

Jamarr Waples

Prices were good and staff was helpful. Friday nights are the best time to go.

Michaela McKenzie

Great place to go for a fun Friday or Saturday night! There was a 20 minute wait when I went but they gave us free money to use on the arcade games while we waited. Polite workers!

Chris Whittaker

Our outstanding waitress Casey made it a 5 star experience for sure

Charlene Mara

This place is great for family fun time and also fun with friends! Great deals on bowling throughout the week as well. $2.22 Tuesday is awesome. Shoes, games, pizza slices, PBR cans, and Miller Highlife cans are all $2.22 after 9pm. I would suggest it to anyone who wants a nice place to go.

Judy L

Colette Benko

The staff is AMAZING and it's nice and clean!!!

clubber lang4

Friendly and attentive staff. Clean bathroom.

It's okay. Our Lane was messed up and repeatedly put down the wrong amount of pins. When I told staff, they didn't apologize or offer a discount. Not real impressed.

Marvin Gumba

Great service and atmosphere.

Teresa Herring

Nice family experience...The food and the service was great. The servers were very attentive and pleasant. My kids really enjoyed themselves....

Dani Leigh

Expensive but fun

Angela's Gordon

We had so much fun with the whole vacation family's at AMF Lynnhaven in Virginia Beach...Just don't go on Tuesday's the wait might be long as we found out...its lead night! Lol..but we had a ball!

Hunter Ellis

Great time with friends when we went. Check for online specials on Groupon before going and be sure to call to make sure no leagues are playing on all lanes. It isn't posted online unfortunately. Pricing on food/drink is movie theatre high and quality is about as low at this chain. Good ole days are gone unfortunately of an inexpensive time with family and friends at the local bowling alley. (Old man moment).

Raivyn Gonzales

Great food and service

Robert Mejia

Very nice experience. Clean the lanes are great. The service was great. Thank you!

Alexia Arsenault

Didn't answer the phone when we tried to call. We get there and have to wait several minutes while being ignored to even ask about a a lane. Terrible service

Justin Mason

Clean alley and decent lanes. Had a few problems with the pin setter last time. I almost always have issues with the bar/wait staff being slow. Maybe they're understaffed, but it always takes a long time to get a drink or food order. Last time I was there an hour before even being asked if I wanted a drink.

Luz Guevara

Great for sundays after 6pm good deals. And waitress always checking on you.

Courtney Orr

Casey's the best!

Jacquelyn Bradleynelson

Good time!

Rafhael Faulcon

Had a blast hadn't bowled in years.

Nikolai Bell

Place was empty, so me and my girl had the place to ourselves. Great place, but only if you're gonna stay for 2 or 3 games. The prices can rack up fast!

David Hodges

Great place to bowl with friendly, knowledgeable staff!!

Brian Kuhn

Great deal and spot for child's birthday party. Lots of fun, good food and service, and everyone in party had a great time. Alley is clean and nice looking.
