I went on a Saturday during the day around 3pm and they had plenty of lanes open! If u live in the west end / west broad area I think it's a great place to bowl , play pool, and video games!

Ashley Larsen, LM CPM

My daughter and I went in at noon on Mother's Day. Everyone one we encountered on staff was very helpful and attentive. Nobody seemed disgruntled to be working on a Sunday AND Mother's Day. Everyone had smiles on their faces and seemed genuinely happy. The manager on duty was super helpful with getting is the appropriate equipment and setting up the lane. All in all a great experience and we will definitely be back.

Betty Ragno

Had a great time. Food is really good

Marie Holt

Employees so nice

Graham White

It's best to go when there is a special going on. I did the wednesdays $8 unlimited bowling. Loved it.

Manivannan Srinivasan

Food is good. Very spacious. Good place for company events or private events.

Ciara Bailey

Fun place

Judy Snead

Renovated with fresh new feel. Food typical. Little too greasy. League play and special events. Late night and Sunday specials are great times for families, and teens. Television screens at lanes. Pool table. Nice seating area for those waiting on teens or such. Parking on front and side.

Derrick Brewer

A lot of lanes and 70's type feel. They have a billiards room and full bar as well which is nice. I'm not sure how well oiled lanes are typically, but they do oil them for league nights.

Pam Wise

The staff was so helpful to a group of people that didn't know what they were doing. Reset machines, Ran down stuck gutter balls and put up rails to make it more fun for the kids (and some of us bigger kids). Enjoyed the pizza and chicken tenders. Would recommend for groups.

Michael Brookfield

Great place, good deals on drinks and tacos on tuesday starting at 8. 2.22 game/long island/taco. shoes were just under 5 dollars. Place inside is nice, nothing fancy like uptown, but still clean and friendly staff. lots of pool tables too, but have not tried them yet. will be going back for sure.

Lack of service

Prescott S.

Came here for our company Christmas party. I feel like they did a great job taking care of us. Thx

Joel Siehien

My fiancé & friends have been going to the AMF lanes on broad st near willow lawn for a couple years & just recently were forced to head to this location due to the previous being closed for a party. We had the BEST experience on... a Monday! Our server was the sweetest woman who brought us pitchers of water immediately (never heard of with bowling alleys) & attended to our every need. Every staff member we encountered from the initial point of contact at the rental station, to the manager, the housekeeping staff (the sweetest man of them all!), to our server. I even told the server that her attitude made the difference in us getting a good / bad experience. Any place can provide "bowling alley" food with a mediocre attitude, but she was EXCEPTIONAL! We are now going back here from here on out! Cannot talk highly enoujgh !

Ryan Bush

I bowled so hard there. My kids thought they were going to beat me. They had no idea who they were messing with!!!! They talked so much trash on the way there but on the way they were nothing but tears and whimpers about how unfair it was. I got no sympathy for them. You want to talk trash and then cry because I won't put the sissy bumpers up!!!! What do you mean yoy cant throw a 16lb ball??? I dont care if your six!!!! Start lifting!!!!Mess with the best die like the rest.

Charles Leftwich

Nice place to enjoy the evening with the family blowing

Victoria M. Arias

3games, 4 kids, 2 adults $120. 1 appetizer, 4 small drinks, an order of French fries & 2 beers $67!!!! Ridiculously expensive.

Jason Burton

Really nice place. Lanes were great. Went on Tuesday for 2 dollar games and bowled 12 games under 30 bucks. Last game the lane shut off in the middle of it but assistant diced the issue quickly and was able to pick up and finish.

shaney jackson

Enjoy with teammates

Jim Dorton

Great day and place for a child's birthday.

Christopher Trites

Great atmosphere, this is where I will be bowling league soon.

Terry Winn

I had not purchased a bowling ball in many years and didn’t know what to expect from a pro shop. I ran into Nick Brown the manager and pro shop specialist and soon realized there are still professional and helpful employees. I was very well pleased with my experience. If you need a new ball. Go to Nick.

Antoine Whitner

It's a good if you want to shoot pool but bowling was okay seeing as how your table sit's pretty far from where you bowl and thebartenders can be a bit slow

Jo Beth DeVore

A great place.

Vichele detox today with me

Awesome people were working there. I had a great time.

Eric Edwards

Love this spot to shoot pool and chill

berlynn gonzalez

It was an okay place it's more for adults than kids.

Monique Voss

We (our league) left Shrader months ago because of the horrible service. We went to Sunset, and love it there. Tonight, Sunset was closed due to a water issue, so we went back to Shrader. Service was mediocre, but the lady ar the food counter was EXTREMELY rude when I asked her some dressing for my salad, because the overworked waitress accidentally brought me the wrong one. Waitress made several errors. I am done with this crappy place. The next group took over our lanes before we even had our stuff moved or our shoes on. I am done with this place.

Teaira Gaines

I have a child in a wheelchair and the facility was very accessible. I was able to roll him in and he bowled while in his chair. Great family environment!

Brenda Haskell

Lots of fun, food was good just a little pricey. Everyone was accommodating.

Amina Bakari

Older. Limited seating

bill berry

I know it's only a bowling alley but compared to other lanes, this one is great. Much less like a bowling alley than others and well maintained

Moises Barrientos

Nice place to get fun

Mandy Ellis

Awesome place to bowl on league.

rafael quesada

Staff members are very rude and they tend to disappear like Magician.

Chanelle Smith

My youngest and I had fun

tamika hayden

Great place for a birthday party. Pizza was great and they allowed you to bring in outside cake. Highly recommend.

Christina Myers

The prices are outrageous for two kids and one adult. Then the lanes are so slick if you dont hit dead center. After complaining to the front and turning my shoes in I was offered for the bumpers to be put up only after we were half way through our game and just spent 34 dollars for one game.We wont be coming back since the kids got 20 pins the whole time. Worst experience bowling ever and all we were trying to so was have family time. I would have been better off taking my kids to the movies and paying that outrageous price.

Melvin Williams

I didnt bowl this time but the pool tables keep me coming back. The only issues i had was their was a shortage of pool sticks and the pizza wasnt that good. Just good enough to get you by until you go home. Other then that it was okay

joseph marine

I visited the pro shop at this location. It was not well stocked but they were open when I needed access. There hours include space for the working individuals. You can get things done before your league start time and after your normal work day. That alone gets them 3 stars in my book. The shop itself is a bit pricey with limited selection. They offer the typical services of most pro shops. The technician on duty was friendly. The wait time was short. Stop by and tell me about your trip.

Eric Gordon

Had a great time in this bowling alley. They lanes where not congested and the lanes and areas around where very clean. My only complaint is the manager/bartender after watching her take cash, hand out billiards and handle and touch everything under the sun I asked for a drink and what does she do??? She grabs a lime with her BARE HANDS what the? Really??? That’s truly appalling to me. Wash your hands! Straws are out in the open were everyone can touch as many straws as they want as they grab for one big deal right ? Wrong THEY DONT HAVE WRAPPERS on them.

Jay M

It was nice enjoyable place to have fun as adult..

Ronnel Rodriguez

Great food and great place.

Tamekio Debrow

My son and i love it, but the only problem was that they won't take the Groupon the same day you purchase it and they was slow getting your food. But the overall experience was great. Will definitely go back.

Tammy Diaz

Nice place to spend hours with friends having fun....

Gerald Brusich

Worst run bowling center in the state! Only good for open play but that's expensive! Tournaments are run horribly and don't follow usbc rules! House run tournaments only favor employees there and people running tournaments bowl in tournament isn't that a Black flag?

Jared Jordan

Great place to bowl for friends and family

Sridhar Srinivasan

Very good place for Bowling.. It’s a big place

vera underwood

Prices were outrageous

Jeremy Jones

Staff was nice and helpful. We had two lanes for 2 hrs and they gave us an extra 10 mins to wrap up our games. We had the pizza ands wings which everyone loved and staff was kind enough to ask and reheat our pizza. It was a good time overall and we'd definitely go back!

Vasu Gandepalli

Wonderful place to hangout n nice food .

Adrian Sewell

A bowling alley, balls only go up to 15 lbs if you don't bring your own. Well enough kept with a full bar and pool tables. Tuesday nights are extra nice $2 shoes all night, $2 per game.


We had a good time, helpfull staff

Chuck Padgett

Consistently good lane conditions and very good staff!

Jessica Liljegren

The staff was really nice! Even though they were short staffed, they made sure that they made your food in a timely manner and brought it out to you piping hot. It was clean and organized and a lot of fun!

Leigh LeMay Weaver

Nice place, but staff was clearly disinterested.

Dennis Jordan

The people are nice but short staffed the night time snack bar guys.. great manners and u should remember to tip the people that bring out your food need more games in arcade

A Starnes

Great ambiance! Prices! And music!

Jennifer H

Bumpers wouldn't work, had to stay within a crowded area, 2 drinks and a pretzel took forever. Just do not feel that it is as good as Hanover.

Wendi Schwartz

Great fun. Sunday special 2 games shoes for 2 18 bucks

David Henrico Dai ichi Shotokan

Very nice, lots of lanes open, good pool tables to play on and good customer service.

Shyam Kandoi

Paid for 2 hrs. They shut us out at 20 mins before closing. We were able to play for only hr and half. When asked the manager, the only thing she was able to say was that they close at midnight and it was only 11:40.

lauren leggett

A nice bowling alley, but it can sometimes take a while to get shoes/balls to start.

Todd Rigler

My family has always enjoyed bowling and this alley has always delivered with some exceptions. I remember when bowling was a cheap family night. That has changed. It seems that the bowling alleys are more places for leagues. The cost has also skyrocketed yet the alley and game has not changed. Food is expensive and not much more than microwave products. Maybe I am just being to harsh because keep I going ack.

Ryan Beyerlein

This place is okay to bowl at. Management clearly has an issue with merica. I had my firearm and legally permitted to have it and asked me to put it in my vehicle. Bad publicity AMF. Will be my last time here.

Ryan Rose

Place was a chaotic mess. Staff were incoherent and not welcoming.

Jason Hannah

All was fantastic


Not bad... It did take a long time to get my food though. But besides that it was not bad.

craig Anderson

Service was terrible! Young lady at front desk was good bit couldn't handle all the customers by herself. Line was past the front door and she was by herself. Ordered a pizza and drinks when we first got there, bowled 2 games and the food order was never put in the kitchen. Manager took off the food, charged us for the drinks and never said I'm sorry or anything. I'm a league bowler. I will never buy anything from there and I will never open bowl there again! RIDICULOUS!

Troy Little

Small, expensive, and not even a television. If u like the sound of strikes, spares, and balls rolling then welcome.

Gerry Bro

Very poor lane conditions for league bowlers open play has a better shot then leagues and tournanent bowling the place is not wirth the money or the amf name aldo the only people giving the lanes a good review are workers there


Nick in the pro shop did an excellent job with 2 of my bowling balls!!!

jennifer edmonds

Service excellent. Dont waste money on mixed drinks, juice!

Jocelyn Jackson

Customer service was great!! Deal were reasonable.

One Vanity

Staff is friendly, but the food counter gets swamped. Instead of them being courteous and bringing the food to your table, they should consider adding some type of notification to the lanes so you can grab your own food instead of it being placed on the counter.

Marjorie Haskell

It was awesome. Took a group of teenagers from church and we had a wonderful time.

M. Bennett

What I like about this location is they have specials on multiple days of the week. You can pay as little as $2/game which is great when you visit with a large family. We enjoyed ourselves the night of our visit. There were a minimal number of young staff members on hand but they made do without incident. The family night of bowling turned out great and we all left tired.

Stan Sitzman

Great place, great location great service, fun time!

Ersha Forney

Great family ❤️

Benjamin Anderson

Normal bowling alley. Good staff, slick lanes. Let's you slide.

JJim Franks

Have been bowling here since I was a child. The prices could be better.

Jonathan Mills

More expensive then other bowling options, but the night setup is entertaining. There food is better than an average bowling alley, but is not cheap. When they are running specials, the value is worth the cost, but in general there are better options.

Cyd Leonard

Night bowling is kool

Bryan Simpson

This place has turned into a dump. I used to come here a couple times a month roughly 5 years ago. It was always great. Went during the last few days every time we threw a ball down the lane it took roughly 2 minutes to finally make its way back. Eventually every one had to get 2 balls each just so we could bowl twice in an efficient amount of time. The extra ball would knock the first ball into the return machine. We went to get refreshments and no one was at the counter even after waiting for a couple minutes and hollered for service. If you bowl with kids you will have to bowl with bumpers because they don't raise and lower between turns. Hanover lanes is much better. Also you could barely here any music horrible bowling atmosphere.

Des B

There's also pool tables here. It's a very updated and shiny bowling alley. There's a full bar inside yielding for an interesting and safer night out.

kiran kumar grandhe

Food tastes good.. enjoyed bowling

Wilnette Holmes

Comfortable atmosphere

Nick Parrett

Pool tables need a little work

Denise E

The staff is so friendly and helpful.

Tonya Whiting

The pro shop, was a great experience, the food was pretty good.


Nice place. Plenty of alley's. Fun to have a drink and bowl a few games

wilbur kakonge

Cheap games and lively when the dj is playing

Kristie Holliday

Fun with kids. Clean..nice management

Mike Crowley

Mainly come here for pool. The pool tables have been abused and have been in major disrepair. They recently repaired them, which helps a lot (otherwise rating would have been lower)

shawn case

This place was so much fun. Like 15 of us. Only thing I would improve on is a daily print out of rotating new beers. Richmond is a national craft beer sanctuary.

Lisa Crute

Great palace for bowling but needs more arcades

Robert Coffey

Fun atmosphere, descent prices for bowling , staff is nice.

Gloria Salazar

I had a great time with my hubby. Everyone was so kind. When I ordered food, they didn’t give me a receipt and I didn’t know that if you don’t get a receipt, you get $5 off. Well after ordering I went to pay for my games and I read a sign about the receipt, a older looking lady gave an attitude and got pissed off i think because I claimed it. Great place and everything but horrible old lady with attitude.

Paul Di Donato

Nice clean place. We enjoyed ourselves. We booked as a party of 6 and our food was included. The staff was friendly (most of them anyway) As for the food they didn't do so good. They lady running the counter sucked. They didn't replenish the food like they were supposed to.The portions were supposed to feed six and it barely fed two. There was no dipping sauce like we were supposed to get(eventually got that tho after the food was gone). The wings were overcooked. When we asked for ketchup the lady responded (with an attitude)"I cant reach it! You are gonna have to wait." And the place was actually pretty dead. Hate to see what it's like when they get busy.If you are gonna go. Go on a full stomach. Bowl, drink, and have fun. Just dont eat

3PiCat Randomness

Very clean, wheelchair accessible lanes, very nice staff

Warnetta Trent

Went there as a school function. Organization was very helpful. Staff there was kind. Children had fun.

Song Bird

This AMF location was awesome. The staff was great and the bowling alley is nice and clean

Jay Rosado

Place is big and fun

Andy Chambers

I called up there to find out the rates. They said after 5 on Sunday was $3 a game. We got there about 5:30, started bowling 5:50. We bowled 5 games. We went to cash out and it was almost $29.00. I said, I was told when I called, it was $3 after 5. I was told no its after 6 and you started at 5:50 so your rate was $6 a game. I said well after 6 our rate should have went to $3. I was told no since you started before before 6, it stays at $6 a game. I said no that is bull and asked fir the manger. She wouldn't refund our my, 3 of us by the way. But she gave me a coupon instead. Man people will take advantage of ya won't they?

Epbreezy Penn

Quiet little spot. Food is expensive though

satheesh kumar

I have been to AMF bowling numerous times and it’s just because I love to play over there and especially I can drink while playing...

Corey Johnson

Friendly fun atmosphere.

wanda moore

Nice if you're in to bowling.!!

Miranda Daniels

Went to Shrader Lanes with friends yesterday. Everyone had a blast. The staff there is very friendly and quickly got us on lanes despite being packed! Haven't been there in years, love the new look. Food was great, came out quickly. Prices were reasonable and the experience was well worth every dime spent. Will be coming back!!

Michael Hollier

Wish the food had slightly better value, got some chicken nuggets which were excellent but only 4 pieces for a over 8$, bowling was fantastic though! Just maybe eat before hand

Marina Battistini

Good place for an event or for family time

Joel Ernst

My favourite bowling alley in Richmond. The parking lot can look very crowded and the inside will not be. Plenty of parking with safe and easy access to the lot.

Byron Salter

Food and experience was great

Rob LaSalata

Great place

Marcus C.

ProTip: make sure to go on Tuesdays and Sundays after 8pm for 2$ games and shoe rentals. Try to get there early to grab a lane before the rush of customers. Also, the 2$ beef tacos are amazing!! cheers

Kimberly Eley

I had fun watching my coworkers bowl.

Steve Waddell

Had to wait for the bartender for a while being they were short staffed. Wasn't the bartenders fault, they just clearly needed more people. Had the pool table and was paying for it while waiting on service.

Nicole Thomas

The lanes aren't working as well as they used to, and the pins fall down some times

Hemmy Himelright

B day party for great grandchild great time

Tess Shipe

Very Clean. Monday night had no wait for a lane, and we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Pleasant staff.

Raymond Epps

Went there to shoot pool. it wasn't anybody behind the bar we had to find somebody they only charged 12 dollars an hour so that wasn't bad a lot of places charges more.

Audrey Chappelle

Best bowling alley!

shan rance

Lot of fun


Waiting for the food is awful! The worst! Our 1 1/2 hours!!! Need to staff!

Akash Tailor

Worst service ever. They need more staff. Everything takes forever. And the butch manager is rude af.

Daniel Woodley

Nice Bowling and Pool hall

Stephanie Granderson

Maybe it's just me, but at almost $5 per game per person, it was pretty costly. Prices used to be different. I also, saw a sign that said we could get something free if we weren't offered a receipt per transaction, and they didn't stick to it. Why put the sign?

Kenn Woodworth

Fun place but slow service.
