Brian Taylor

The best bowling experience in the Greater Hamton Roads.

David Floyd

Kenneth Tryczak

The bowling was fun. Coffee was good. I will go back someday!

Sarah Ritchie

Pizza was not great but everything else was fine

Too Raps

What you expect at a bowling alley....the staff is very friendly and their tiny bathroom is always complaints and have a good promote on Tuesdays to bowl as much as you want for 11 bucks

Sonji Forges

The workers there are super nice and they are so fun to be around. I come here every Wednesday and Friday and they are the best days

Billy Willig

Awesome open mic comedy night

Daniel Regueiro

Great place to have fun. Perfect atmosphere for family or friends.

Mathew Cutshall

Public place. Pricey food. But good time for bowling and causal hang out. Has a dedicated smoking area for bar and food inside. Very busy on weekends.

Mitchell Owens Jr

I am a bowler. I look for good bowling lanes and great customer service, and this place has it. They still have room for for potential.

Whitney Chapman

Pinboys is a favorite local spot that has awesome hospitality. The facility is clean, the lanes are pristine and the best part is knowing you are going to have a good time. The instructions to setup the game is simple, but if you have a question don't hesitate to ask the staff as they are more than willing to accommodate. They do not have duck pins but that doesn't prevent younger kids from making spares or strikes as they have the bumpers and the bowling ball slide (unsure of the technical term) in order to asisst the mini bowlers. Overall it's a great time and the prices are highly reasonable. Another awesome perk is kids 15 and under get two games free a day for the entire summer so be sure to go onto the site and sign them up!

Leah Jane Lombard

Love the Bowling Center and the employees.

Christopher Lee

I was there for a group celebration, they were very busy. The first encounter of customer service was good, friendly. Placed two intitial orders they came pretty promptly. The pizza was sub-par but the appetizer sampler was pretty good. But I'm not judging a bowling alley for there food. We ordered another pizza which they made incorrectly, didn't tell us and only found out after we prompted them to figure out why it took almost an hour to get our pizza. Had they came and explained that I would be more understanding but to leave is clueless and when we ask about it they tell you "it'll be brought to you when it's ready" and then again tell us the same thing by the cashier, then find out the truth by the delivery person who brings you the pizza what really happened, that's not okay.

Joe Smith

Fun spot, good food, good drinks, strong coffee!

Alexander Ucci

Your standard bowling alley. They've got bowling, Miller lite, and a smoking section. What more do you need?

chad zilla

Great for bowling!! Like the bar food and neon lights

Definitely the best bowling alley in town. Everyone works hard to make you feel welcome. "bowling alley food" that always tastes good.

Hassan Holden

Great place for families

Teresa Fontenot

staff was very helpful! we had not bowled in some time but they made us totally comfortable.

Oak Hall Troop #209

We love bringing the kids here!! Super friendly staff and the food prices are reasonable.

Tim Todaro

No happy hour Typical dated bowling alley that people don’t want Lanes closed down at 6pm on a weeknight for a bowling league. At most 15 people were in this league that showed up for the 30 lanes they have. Can’t wait to see what business takes over this building though.

Willie Mabry

Good place to unwind and relieve some stress. Especially if your an avid bowler.

Danielle Embrey


Kristen Jack

Very clean, well maintained, and up to date. We felt welcomed by the staff and management who are very friendly and willing to help. They have a full bar and food, looked good. Our first time bowling at the beach and had an awesome time at Pinboy's!! We will definitely go back next year....


Such a good way to connect with the kidz!!

Kelly Stenger

Pricey, imo but was fun!

Matthew Kleeh

Cheap games, drinks, and food, but we always have a wonderful time.

Alfred White

It was surprisingly fun! I haven't been bowling since I was in high school, and I've always said I wasn't much of a bowler, but... I actually had a lot of fun! My coworkers were a riot and the food was actually much better than the last experience I had at a bowling alley. Well done, Pinboy's!

Yxng Shauna

I got one of my bowling balls from there and the guy that works in the pro shop is really nice. But they do only let you play on one lane so that was kinda annoying

bizel 36

My favourite place to perform stand up

Stephen Consalvo

Friendly staff and good food. Food and drinks a bit pricey.

Clifford Dietz

An awesome place for family and friends

T Nelson

Our kids love it!

Tabitha Hapeman

Have been here twice to take advantage of their "kids bowl free" program. Not a great experience. This is a place for serious bowlers - the only other families there were obviously families that also took bowling very seriously. Not a single casual bowler in sight. Today started with being told about bowling etiquette from the person using the lane beside us (how the kids needed to let her play in between throwing their turns each frame so we weren't in her peripheral vision when she was trying to bowl. She was alone, I was there with 2 young kids) and then the manager telling me my kids could not sit at the 2 arcade games (they weren't playing, just pretending) because the games are "18 and over only, so they can't sit there." They charged for the Styrofoam cups needed for water (glasses are no charge, though). Any one of these things would have overlooked but all together clearly communicates that this isn't a place for casual family fun. I'll spend more money and go someplace geared towards families next time.

Mike Grant

Great bowling deal for the family. $10 one time fee for the winter and two games a week for the family will only cost you shoe rental. Food is good and at a good price. Only draw back pitchers of domestic way over priced at $12.50.

Karma's Ghosts

Such a great time!

Mike Jones

Nice alley, watched nephew bowl in a kids league, was great what they had for kids.

Nicole Hancock

Good first time here. Great for groups, fun for both kids and adults. Clean and well maintained, and they have good deals.


Fun, energy filled atmosphere. Great staff! Night bowling is awesome when the lanes are light up. There's pool, games, drinks and the food is great also. What's not to love?!

Ronda HaJa

Our one game was messing up the whole time. Not counting pins and not resetting pin many times. Great atmosphere

Katieh Brooks

I went here with a group (9 of us) and I wasn't really sure of all that was available for foods. I did look at the menu and thought of something to get, however when I walked up to order I was cut off when I was trying to explain what I saw on the menu, and she did not even listen. I tried to describe again and she cut me off and said "You know we have a menu right on the table?" AND rolled her eyes and said "do you know what you want?". And I tried AGAIN to tell her about the list of items under "Snack" and there's were curly fries. And she must not have heard me ONCE AGAIN... Because she said "Oh you want just an order of fries? It's a whole pound". By then I was done. So I just said never mind and walked away. As I sat down with my friends, I started to tell them what happened and I did not know they actually heard the whole thing. They couldn't believe it either. And I was sitting there as others ate and I kept thinking DID I DO SOMETHING TO PISS HER OFF? All who heard her said I did nothing wrong and that is why they wondered why she would talk to me that way. I was disgusted and hungry, but I refused to order anything after that experience. And I won't be going there again unless I'm just going for a short time with friends and leave. I will not spend my money there. Hopefully if management reads this post they will retrain or catch her in the act and let her know how rude she was. I never wish malice on anyone, but she needs training in people skills.

O Brownie

Great family place they are so sweet to our children and was very helpful

Amanda Martinez

Always a good time!


Nice place to go and enjoy family time.

The ColorBlack

32 Great lanes!! Place is well taken care of and the staff is very friendly. I would love to see this place expanded a little, it does bring in quite a few bowlers so the seating can be a little crowded.

tabor buckland

Very fun place to bowl with great options for alot of things. Only problem is that some things cost a little too much.

William Pesillo

First ball didn't come back, computers were not user friendly, shoes stuck, over priced.


Nice bowling alley but the cook at the mini restaurant inside is unnecessarily rude and very slow. A course in manners and customer service would be beneficial.

Ramsey G

Went to a kids birthday party. Staff seemed to take care of all party needs and food. They were helpful no matter how many times the kids got the ball stuck.


Great service, good environment

Roberta Freeman

Get atmosphere and a wonderful staff. Nice clean alley

Nelia Waters

We had a great time. The staff was nice and friendly, the food was delicious, everything was neat and clean. We will definitely be back.

George Moses

Bowling here is fun. Always busy.

Rob Slanina

Best bowling alley especially when doing the unlimited for 2 hrs package. The machines arent slowed down nor the ball return either. Definitely returning.


Really cool bowling alley.

Red Beard III

Staff is friendly and the lanes operated smoothly!

peter halverson

Love this place. My kids won free games of bowling from the Virginia beach library.

Shawn Mitchell

Check out this bowling alley & I totally enjoying myself.

Judarry Judarry

Everyone was really nice. They have more choices of food and they go out of their way to make sure you're satisfied with whatever you order. My only concern is that they will only let you bowl on one lane, even when there are a lot of open lanes. But i did like the staff. It was clean and I would go back again and again, would even consider joining g a league this summer to see if I really like this place.

Daniel Iadonisi

Very well cared for bowling house where the managers and staff actually greet and get to know you. I've bowled here for over 15 years and I absolutely love this bowling alley!

Jared Otto

Great staff. Recently started bowling on a regular basis. Only place I go to bowl.

Matt Lestock

Great traditional bowling alley on the beach. Hasn't been completely renovated but shows signs of recent additions like digital TV's for entertainment and scoring. The bar is smaller but definitely serviceable. There's also a small game room for kids.

Kendall Aldea

Love to bowl here!

Benjamin K.

The only place you should go bowling in VB, besides the other Pinboys.

Martin Roth

Awesome place to bowl. Extremely friendly and personable staff. Recommend highly

Shelisa Martin

A great bowling alley. Not only for kids but for adults as well Nice and clean and they serve good food here too.

Michael Sneeringer

Always a good time.

Michael Norse

We went when they were very busy and had to wait for a lane, but only about 7 minutes. Staff are very helpful and courteous. The burgers tasted amazing!


Awesome place with a well groomed staff.

BulliMammi -

Prices a little higher than other places in the area. But it is conveniently located to the beach. Food options were pretty good. Our family always has a good time there.

Dustin Hanson

$11 per person all you can bowl Monday nights after 8 o'clock. Nice bowling alley, food and drinks available for purchase. Fun place for a group or a couple.

Christen Ball

Had so much fun! Very accessible for me in my wheelchair

Ray Potter

Best place. Great people

Cassaly R

Great place to have fun and they have great deals for bowling!

Ryland Gustafson

Great place nice and clean! good hot wings if you ever want to get them. great customer service

Cynthia Czaplicki

Great camaraderie with other league bowlers!!

Jennifer Keyes

This is a very dated bowling alley. It's small, which isn't a bad thing, however it's cramped and old feeling. I've been in leagues and bowling alleys around the state, and I would choose to go anywhere but here. Gave it a try after many years, and it still looks the same. Not a good ventilation system, surprisingly, since they have an indoor smoking room. Employees seem like they can care less, unless you are a regular. No one comes around to see if you need anything and their lanes broke down quite often. Not to mention it wasn't the cleanest place I've seen to. Would be extremely disappointed, but honestly didn't expect much to begin with. Don't waste your time here. Go to an AMF bowling alley instead! You won't be disappointed!!

cathy manaugh

Great place for fun service was great

Wayne Johnson

Great staff good food fun place to spend a night bowling


Great place to bowl and have your special party there with a lot of fun.

katie Perkins

Great bowling experience. Food over priced and bland. Drinks extremely over priced. And charge for refills. Great experience as long as you don't order food.

Stef F

We were there to bowl a charity tournament to support VB Strong and to honor the victims of the recent shooting in Virginia Beach. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and put on a great tournament every time.

Patricia Betancourt

Beautiful place and it has an Arcade also


Great place to bowl.

Lori Conti

The best chicken Philly cheesesteak ever! I love this place talk about great family fun you can't beat it!

Jay Jacobson

Fun, friendly bowling alley

Sonja Blade

met some co-workers at this location and had a great time bowling and drinking nothing like a nice place to getaway with co-workers and let off a little steam no complaints will probably go back again

Gordon Hilley

Pinboys at the beach has the friendly and polite and courtious staff working there.Its a very fun place to go bowling and have fun.

Thelma Hand

Great time, friendly people. Good food!

Kid Ace

I'm sorry but this place is not worth the trip at all. As soon as me and my family walked in, I instantly felt nauseous due to the stench of cigarette smoke. Trying to play pool there was a joke. $9 an hour for ragged 8 foot tables with messed up cue sticks was no fun at all. After just 13 minutes there, I could no longer tolerate the smell or the atmosphere and had to get out of there.

Matt Staten

Have gone there for 3 straight Superbowl party's and they get better each year. Great job by the staff and management

Veronica Coats

Service was terrible in the bar. It was way expensive for beer. We love to shoot pool, but now were considering elsewhere.

Naee Little Red

Friendly staff not too crowded,and they have a lot of events.

Andy Wilson

Owner was outstanding. Got there and we're 15 minutes early for cheaper bowling, so he let us play pool for free until it was time. Great, clean, fun place.

Angela Maxwell

Its good to support those that support an outstanding cause like Bowling for Rhinos. The American Association of Zoo Keepers (AAZK), Virginia Zoo,, Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center, Virginia Living Museum, The Bunny Hutch Boutique and CLIMATES-Rescue thank Pinboy's..

Mark Feltner

Good place for a fun time!

Anthony Buzzelli

Super fun. Bowling people..come on do it. I didn't eat there at my last visit, but the food looks great.

Shannon Thorp

Came to play pool, which I know is not common at a place that is primarily for bowling, but it was advertised to have pool tables. They were SO bad the balls wouldn't roll the point of nearly going in wrong pockets being THAT uneven and worn. Staff was not knowledgeable about drinks, 2 basic drinks cost over $20-not worth the measured pour at ALL. Music was lacking and looked as though there was a lot of underage drinking and overserving going on, not that I understand how they could afford it. Slow service, overpriced and will never return. If you make the trip to this area-drive to Q-Masters Billiards. Fair priced, great food and quality everything.

Fred Brockhausen

Good place for league bowling. Staff is extremely nice!

Christopher Williams

Slow with the drinks. Understaffed

Don Hughes, II

Every Monday 9pm the bar has a comedy open Mic. It's the best place to spend a Monday.


Hosted 5 or so events here over the past couple of months and it has always been a successful experience. Decent "fast food" quality meals and appetizers delivered right to your lane. Plenty of bowling shoes in every size and an assortment of bowling balls to accommodate any size hand (or fingers). The bar can make almost any drink you can think of and makes them well. A bit annoying to get to due to being in the Laskin/Hilltop area where the roads are crappy, but still worth the trip.

Jennifer Kimbrough

This place is what you call HOME!!!! I love it there!! They ARE my Family, without a doubt ❤️

Mary Green

Nice, clean, friendly environment! Would've gave it a 5 star but the fried shrimp wasn't done all the way. Overall I will be returning but shrimp won't be on the list lol.

Megan Liberty

I will never go here again. We put our names on the waiting list for one lane, waited an hour and a half before deciding it was best to leave. I went to the counter where a very rude employee asked me what I name was so I can take my name off, only for her to tell me that someone already took my name off the list. That was unacceptable considering we didn’t have our name called at all the entire time we waited. The bartender never asked us if we wanted more drinks, just took our money and ghosted. Horrible customer service.

Larry Morris

Fun Fun place to Blowing and eating and Birthday party!!! We had a wonderful day today

mac cuffe

This is the place where you want to spend your weekend with your family, just play and have fun.

Ashley Adams

Fun place to hang out

Ryan Nye

Staff is very friendly and helpful, but it's a small and outdated bowling alley

Grant Crochet

Hands down the best alley I’ve been to (including lanes out of state and overseas). Friendly and accommodating staff, we’ll maintained light oiled lanes, and some of the best wings I’ve ever had. Pro shop is on point and does quality work. Would highly recommend to league bowlers looking for fun or competitive leagues or families looking to beat the heat in the summer.

rita diaz

First time I was impressed. Got the little passes for kids bowl free and now they give me every excuse in the book. This is my third attempt. I was told they were booked/packed/ yet 20-25 lanes were empty... Would like a call from a manager/owner Rip off!!!

Daryl Jones

We received a very warm welcome from the staff. They genuinely made us feel like they were happy we were there. The place was clean with a large selection of house balls. The equipment worked well including the computerized scoring.

Manfredy Argueta

Good place to have fun for kids. $80 for two hours pizza include. Love i t

t jb

Good fun! Menu items a little pricey.

Scott Hetman

What a great special the bowling ally is running for the summer, kids bowl free! This is a great alley with friendly staff who encourage kids to do their best.

aprell makle

Family vacation this our stop. Clean and friendly.

Glenn Witherspoon

Wonderful, I had a lot of fun.


There was an issue that bowling pins wouldn’t come down. They couldn’t fix the problem ended up refund some of the bill. Overall it’s a good place.

Jean Granger

My son had a great time the last couple of years after Prom here. Thanks.

JamesDarwin Orlanda

Slow service on food depart, Cashiers she is rude, I don't recommend this place for family outings..

S4V8GE Horch

My first time here was with a group of friends and we all enjoyed the setup and the staff. The systems worked great, well taken care of and a really nice environment. The food was also not bad for being a bowling alley. Good portions and pretty quick turn out. I would advise this place to small to mid size groups of people. Good pricing :) Thank you.

Justin Schmink

Love it

Adrian Kirk

Very nice Bowling Facility.

Jermaine Lewis

Great place...the staff treats you like family each and every time you go there!

James Greig Timms

Good Sunday fun with the grandkids

Kachana Nolette

Had a Groupon and we took the kids! Had fun and the staff was more than happy to help when they noticed we were having trouble getting started (we didn't even have to ask) we will be going back for sure! Thanks for the great service guys!

Richard Laxton

Good price. Friendly staff. Nice snack bar.

karen jones

It smells like cigarette smoke in here all the time. They have a smoking room, but it obviously seeps out underneath. It also has notes of a musty, damp or dusty smell. This may not bother some people, but for those with strong allergies or asthma, it is quite discomforting. The lanes here are set up so you feel like you're right on top of the people next to you. Sometimes, it is just so loud in here, you can't enjoy quality time with your kids. They seem to offer better pricing in terms of leagues and passes, other than the military lanes. You have to weigh out the gold and bad here.

Drew Cain

Great place to bowl with the fellas. If you get a strike with the colored pin in the middle they give you a free game which is nice. The food is about what you’d expect at a bowling alley but it gets the job done.


Great staff, very clean and a great time!

Honey Conaway

Family friendly

Joe C

Open mic night on Mondays, 9pm! Come by if you think you got the stuff. Or if you like being made fun of like me

Sophia Jazzar

Clean, family friendly bowling alley. Computerized and automatic gutter blockers for the kids (in all of us). Enjoyed so much booked my daughters birthday party there. My only suggestion would be to get better concession food.

Jessica Smalls

Always have fun here!

Michelle MacFarlane

A+ on the Customer Service!! Thank you for accommodating our request. You guys are professionals through and through and clearly care about your establishment. We will be back!

Brian Stillman

Great bowling center. Friendliest and most helpful staff in town. Food is great too!!!

Ron Stillman

We had our company Christmas party there for the second year in a row awesome food and fun they really took care of us

Ivy Vega

We had a great time. Very friendly staff.

Billy Taylor

Love this bowling alley

Julie DSP

Fun bowling, clean, super friendly staff. Normal bowling alter alley food. Great little kid options with light balls, bumpers, ball roller rack.

Valdek Saltykov

Like, stuff of the building is really nice. They serve beer and others alcohol and nonalcoholic beverages. I was there with friends. We paid 10,75$ for 2 hours each. Price is good, but cannot say that it is coolest place that I ever been there.

Robert Brock

This place sucks I went in asked how much pool was $9.50 a game an hour on a 8 foot pool table after little while playing a saw two guys playing on the same table feet across for $50. Cents a game I was like damn then I got me a White Russian for $7.50 I was told by the rude so call bar tender I should have looked close but it Cleary said White Russians $5.50 on sign but I already gave her my money so the whole night on my birthday I felt like I should had brought my Preparation H what a messed up deal here I do not recommend pool or White Russians!

Zachary Phillips

Family friendly and a great place to meet new people. Joined the free league on Tuesdays and it's been amazing.

Alison McCombs

So much fun! This past weekend was my first visit though I've lived here for over a decade! This is such a cute bowling alley! It really has a retro look - but is well-kept and felt like a local's joint. Staff were friendly and helpful and they have tons and tons of food on a large menu at the bar area with lots of seating around. I didn't see a lot of open seating as the tables are assigned for the lanes mostly. We chose to play as many games as we could fo $22 a person for 2 hours plus shoe rental. This turned out to be 4 games total for two people for $45. Not bad. We then played pool for an hour for $9. But I think the two pool tables are currently for sale for $350 but you have to come pick them up - looks like they're trying to have them out by September. We arrived at around 4:30 on a Saturday and were able to play for almost two hours until the leagues started to show up and it got very crowded.

Blake Gordon

Unlike AMF, you can actually enjoy an affordable night of bowling here. The rates aren't bad and they have plenty of special rates on different nights. The absolute best deal in town for bowling is through their text club. Offers for free bowling on Thursday, Friday, or Sunday nights every week. Offers for free or reduced bowling on numerous random days throughout the week. The staff there is very friendly and professional. Kitchen and bar is awesome, too. Super cold draft beer, the best mac and cheese bites in town, and a whole bunch of other good stuff. Literally can't find anything bad to say about this place other than I live too far from it!
