REVIEWS OF Valley Lanes IN Virginia

Richard W.

I’d rather ride a bird than go here.

Sharon Payne

Guess, I went at the wrong time on a Saturday evening. It was loud, smoky, and had to wait forever for a lane. I understand they have leagues, so don’t go during league bowling or your have to wait until they are done. In my opinion it was very pricey to bowl.

Jon B

Tons of fun bowling or shooting pool. Also have game room

Will Ting

*In 2017 I've inq'd of a maint.job;it SEEMS like an OK place2 me albeit a slow atmosphere due2 being located in a small VA town'*(YEAH I KNOW!!!-This ain't DC/Rich OR Tidewater is the same ol refrain I've constantly used over n again!!!)*

Jaz Draper

Lanes are pretty good, the rest of the building needs modrrnizing. Love that we can rent a lane for 2 hrs.


Fun place. Good times to be had..


Food is always good and the staff is awesome

tipipaul bisgaard

We have our work bowling holiday party here every year. Lots of fun bowling and getting all the workers together!

Chris Knott

Bowling, pool, darts and an arcade. Great place to watch sports too.

Dale Eavey

Great place. Wonderful staff.

Brandon Vandevander

The people who gave it a low star are probably the people who went in once and acted like owned the place, in order to get respect you have to earn it. This is not a party place its a sports establiahment. This is the best place to go for a good time and they're smoking designated areas.

wesley caplinger

Trying to get in a little practice for this weekends Bowl for kids! Cool place, enjoyed the Monday winter special $2 a game and $2 for shoes. Had a blast friendly and helpful service. I'll definitely be back!

Sam Lloyd

Customer service up front was shake-y but tolerable. Price was steep for the product; nearly $65 spent and the bartender was indifferent in her response that I would have to pay for a bottle of water rather than receive tap water out of a 8 …

lorenzo suarez

Enjoy the place and food.

Brock Cook

Not much of a friendly environment, expensive.... And no offense but cosmic bowling.... To me?..... Means more than jus some black lights and crappy old outdated paint on the walls

Ryan Scott

Fun place for the family. Has had scoring and lane upgrades. As well as bumper availability for each bowler. Pretty slick.

Mason Folk

Our game was cut off short because someone told the employees we were bowling without the shoes on, we had a large party and two separate lanes so the only people without shoes had already finished their frames and changed back to the shoes they brought in. The bar and food area is also confusing, someone in our group had a glass of water from the bar and was told they couldn't bring to the lanes, or pour it into another cup. It was a fun time when the employees and confusing roles dont ruin it for you.

Marybeth Clarke

We Were treated poorly by whomever was at the desk. Our child is developmentally disabled and 13 years old. Despite the fact that she has a disibility, we had to beg for the bumpers and they would not give us a ramp because she is over the age of 10.

James Morris



Lil older but good prices

Chris Shelton

Nice quiet place to bowl. Love how the inside is set up.

colton huffman

Play for the almost 2 hour things were almost great till midway threw 10 But lanes wear messed up and trying to charge us 4 with threats but when lanes and scores cant match up but want 2 charge us at the end and treating us with 4 hours at then end

Bob Lobster

The unfriendly old guy that works there ruined the whole visit

Trripp Manglona

Lanes were good but needs to be remodeled i wouldnt even want to eat from the kitchen its so dark and gloomy and looks like it never been renovated since they had the place.

Ayden Thornton

This place is awesome

Lamar Maddox

Amanda Simmons

mckayla vaughan

Will never ever come here again the lanes keeping messing up and stopping for no reason the staff are really nice and kind and poor management

Paul Barnhill

Great bowling! The food is a bit slow

Robert Chambers

Great lanes and they also have a pool hall, bar, small arcade and a place to order food.

Darlene Eppard

I love hanging out here. It's a great place to hang out with your friends. The atmosphere is very friendly and so is the staff. The best karaoke around!


Would not recommend to anyone. Worst service I’ve had at an alley. Was told that I could not bring a water cup from their own bar to the lanes even though it was a plastic cup like they required. Our game was also cut short 4 frames due to a disrespectful employee who claims our group was bowling without proper shoes. Completely unacceptable and disrespectful to make such a claim without any legitimate proof. Would give no stars if possible.

Samantha Holloman

Always a great time

Kari Torkelson

Valley Lanes is an iconic family place in the Valley! Whether its bowling, shooting pool, or belting out a karaoke tune at their Time Out sports bar, you will find a homey loving atmosphere topped off by great service from a dedicated staff!! Good People who like sharing Good Times❤

Laura Lambert

Nice, but smoky atmosphere. Bumpers are now set per person, so adults bowling with kids don't get bumpers.

Brittnee Barker

The girl with the Teal hair working the concessions is very rude


Lane kept shutting down, but they gave us more time to finish after bringing it to their attention... so can’t be too upset honestly. Took 30 min to try to correct, they ended up switching our lane after the leagues left. Had a good time with family, because they tried to make things right would come back again.

Harold Wetzel

Great place for fun!

Tammy Clem

Love to go bowling and enjoy the option to bowl a certain amount of time for a set amount of money. Problem is the number of times the lane shuts down and it takes forever for someone to get it back up and running, while your time is ticking away. Get it together Valley Lanes.

Shelley Jacobs

We love karaoke nights and the staff. The only downside to this place is that there is so much smoke it's disgusting!! Should be ventilated much better!! Those smoke fans are not working. Better yet they have a back door entrance to the outside they should really invest making a deck for them to smoke on for all seasons. Whenever we go and then leave to come home we are taking our clothes off stuff them in the washer and then hop in shower to get that smoke smell off.

saad al

Nice place to spend a good time at even for the kids prices is very reasonable and the lines attended are very helpful.

Cathy Turner

What a fun place

Crystal Kellar

I was here for the sports bar and karaoke. No complaints about either; had a blast!

Dylan Heatwole

Rude customer service all around. At least the bathrooms were clean.

Erin Blackwell

Best time and the bar is great!! Josh the bartender is literally the best in the burg!!!!

Steve Massie

Hot great food, a bar great bowing, just a great place to hang out.

Jeremy Nelson

Don't go on Monday even though they offer $2 games. They cater to leagues.

Deedy Miller

Had a great time

Melanie Chase

Had a great time bowling here the pool room was a little smoky but I guess that's to be expected

Cat Person

Lane messed up-again-and while they're taking their sweet time fixing the problem they didn't stop our time clock so we lost a whole game-bad business and another thing-they only keep up the team lanes-bad business.

michelle mickie

I have the best time here....Just love it!!!

bill del gallo

If you dont mind cigarettes i guess its ok

Ronnie Thompson

Good place to bowl..perfect for family and children.


Im 21 years old and went with a group of friends they were able to get us to a lane right away so points for that , it was a little loud and busy (which we didnt mind)but im thinking it was just that particular night. Everything is on the pricey side such as food shoes games ect. But thats with any bowling alley really.

Tyler Miller

was told i was not a customer, therefore my car got towed when i was inside. 1 star is very generous for what i would give them if possible.

Sean Feehan

Horrible music selection on a friday night, extremely loud, lane messed up twice and got pins stuck costing us about 10 minutes or so out of our 2 hour time slot. Couldn't vape in there which sucks...

Rachel Wever

Great energy if you're looking for a place to do karaoke. The one bartender, Josh, is excellent if you're undecided on what to drink. He really knows what to recommend based on your preferences.

Michael Burkholder

Very good family oriented place! Really enjoyed it there. Our lane was number 13, and a did not always work properly. But we had a great time.

Ike Davis

Best place to have fun!

Sandra Mongold

Patrice Hawkins

.great place for fun

Chris Hottinger

Great family fun for all ages

MaryElla Taylor

You can have a birthday parties there

Maida Jones

Good bartenders sometimes. Bad business model in which I can't get in to have a beer during the last half hour of karaoke night when this is the only bar that's open on this side of town (that I know of,) without paying the full cover. No, I don't want to karaoke, I just want a beer at the end of my work night, thank you. Would have rated higher if not had been turned away like that. Do they even want my money?

YOLO Evers

Love to bowl. Most night fantistic!

Ben Mix

It didn't smell that bad it was kind of hot I think someone died in these shoes the shtickman were kind of a letdown

Lee Deaver

Party time

Chaz Fillion

If you need something to do it's not terrible. The ball and pin guy is a bit slow returning the ball and since your playing by the 2 hour limit his speed would be appreciated. Playing pool was fun, the smokey scented atmosphere brought me …

Steven Doty

Worn and old but classic bowling alley appearance, good specials, pleasant staff, basic food options.

Chris Jones

Nice place


They couldn't handle the crowd. The lanes kept messing up. It took 5 tries to get the bumpers up for my kids. The lady did apologize though a lot, so at least she was nice.

christie Bosheers

Lanes are reasonably priced. Cosmic bowling is a blast! Pool tables and snack bar are also reasonably priced. The bar in bac offers karaoke with TNT on weekends and its a great time. There is a 3 dollar cover foe that but totally worth it!

James Murphy

Josh the bartender is great

Fish On

Rude and unpleasant worker greated through a locked door. There claimed they were open from 11-9. We were waving at people inside who looked at us and shrugged us off. After 5 min a rude man who acted like we inconvenienced him came at the door with an attitude. Told us they were suppossed to open a 5, Sign says 11am tho. Then tells us systems are down and they are open. Followed by I dont know what to tell u folks, then walked away. Never opened door, talked to us through door, did not let us ask possible time of opening or offer to let us sit inside and wait. While there 5 cars holding about 20 people pulled up. All lost business as well, prob $300+ in business lost in 5 min. Anywere I have been has not locked people out, treated them rude, not answer questions, and def not spoken to people through locked doors. Open your door, explain what's wrong, then offer us an option to sit inside and wait of go to your lounge. Maybe the place is nice, idk, but dont be rude. Most the customers here during summer, keeping you open and employees paid are driving 45min from resort. Treat them right or they with shut u down .

Bea A

my family and i went to have a good time, but we had such a terrible experience... we got asked by a girl with glasses to shut up because we were being so this is my question to can you play quietly??? Whats the fun if we have to be quiet??? So stupid!!!! the way...she was just being mean only to us because we were hispanics...there was plenty of people in that place being loud and she only came up to us, she was not nice at all...she could at least say it nicely...never going back!!!!

Tanya Jenkins

Long wait line to get shoes and pay for the games. Our lane (#21) kept glitching and when I asked for assistance on the touch screen no one came. Each time we had to go to the counter for help and wait in line yet again.

Angie Dovel

Large inside and has good concessions to choose from.

Jazlyn Fink

A favorite hang out spot for us! Never have to wait for lanes. Clean and friendly staff!

Jere Miles

Was very nice bowling alley, we visited on league night so could not get a lane, but looked like a nice place

will via

Wasn't to crowded got in there and got lanes quick had alot of fun

Kenny Byers

Great food, great people!!!

William Crosby

Valley Lanes/Timeout Sports Grill is a great place to meet new people and to associate with people you already know. The Staff is very professional and kind. And there is TNT Karaoke and DJ ing , now that's a great way to unwind after a hard week at work. If you get a little hungry while you are unwinding there food is some of the best around town. I GIVE THIS PLACE 5 STARS !!

Harry Aldieny

all good. staff is awesome

Eric M Griffin

The facility was well maintained Natasha was fantastic. She took notice that we had a very frustrated child who is learning how to bowl but only rolling gutter balls. She talked to him and covertly set the bumpers to activate. No more,gutter balls and no more frowns.

Demetrice Saunders

It was nice and reasonable.

Christine Delaughter

Nice place to have some fun. Shout out to Matt!!

Wayne Kurtz

Staff were helpful; lanes were available on both my recent visits there.

Fred Crowley

Great place to hang out with friends and family. Staff was pleasant. Could use a little TLC but bowling alleys are a tough business.

Mahfuz Kamal

Solid alley with good atmosphere and reasonable rates

Victor Castro

Very modern now with new touch screens and different game modes that everybody in the family can enjoy, great place to have fun and not break the bank!

Jim Bolenbarker jr.

Wonderful night as always!

Alice Yeager

Great place to bowl

David Jacobs

Great place to hang out. Bowling or at the Timeout Sports Lounge. The only reason I don't give it a 5, still allow smoking inside.

Daniel Kauffman

Recently updated their scoring system with touch screen input devices and customizable graphics. They don't serve beer until 4 pm.

Jo Anne Stewart

Great date night food, fun and beverages

Tonya Cox

Good clean family fun !!

Patrick Pastrana

This place is not nearly so bad as the previous reviews. Yes they charge $.25 for the cup and ice water. They also have a free water fountain. The atmosphere and bowling conditions are very good.They have a great selection of draft beers at very good prices! The food is freshly prepared and as good or better than any other bowling alley food. It is family run and they have bowling specials all the time. Our family of four bowled two games with shoes for $34.

Renita Stroupe

This is a GREAT place to take your family or even just yourself! There's tons of games for all group ages. Your kids can win all different kinds of toys from cranes or challenge each other to air hockey or basketball while you have a cold …

Bill Norman

A great place for bowling with a great bar inside that serves good food!

James Craig

Roomy, but pricey!

Genesis Alfaro

It was so fun but the people that work there aren’t nice at all.

Letícia Borges

32 bowling lanes, disco lights and other attractions.. it's a place for a lot of fun

Emily Henry

It costs about $50 for our family of four to go, and you would expect at the cost that it would be a little bit cleaner especially the bathrooms. The staff was nice though and we had a good time

Bbyme Lala

Fun if you want to get drunk

Daniel Kelly

Visiting from NY and went bowling here. Front desk people were the nicest, most friendly people. Lanes seem new and scoring system is high tech with option to skip someone if they are in the bathroom or something so you don't have to wait for them. $12 all we could bowl for 2 hours included shoes.

Jacob Weaver

Great food for a good price. And of course bowling is always a great time.

polley d

Great atmosphere good time and friendly staff.

Ruth Woodson Williams

Great for bowling just don't really like all the steps and then you have to step up to bowl.

Yves-Abdel Barry

Went there and ask for a cup. Manager was racist and literally attacked me to get it back. Never tried to understand the situation. Will never go back

April and Howell Bullock

For the area, its a great place to bring kids to bowl. Staff is super nice!

La-Kia Kommeren

This spot was recommended by one of the staff members at the Massanutten resort. We came down to find the place packed on a Monday night. The front desk staff helped us out. She suggested we hang at the bar and by 9pm the bowling leagues should be clearing out. We went to the bar, and was shocked that smoking was allowed inside. So we sat on the very far side from the smoke ordered drinks and food. I had the hot wings w/fries while my husband had the chicken fingers w/ fries. The bar keep was very nice. He did change the channel for us so we could watch and hear the football game. After our meal, we had to wait in line to get situated. We were quickly helped with shoes and given a lane. I liked the bowling system, easy to log in and easier to adapt. The lanez and balls were nice. We didn't bowl well, but hey we just wanted to have a good time during our mini getaway.

Casey Dzwonchyk

Giving one star is being generous and unfortunately my only option on here. We went bowling for my friends birthday and brought brownies for him. One of the staff members told us that “only cookies and cupcakes were allowed” and made us get rid of them. What logic is that? Was highly disappointed in the attitude of the two young women working there and the way they treated us thoroughout our night. Props to the bartender though, bar was a little rough on the inside, but the bartender couldnt have been friendlier! Save to say I will never be bowling in the area anytime soon.

Dolson Anderson

Limited parking, everyone crowded into the front lines. Old style alley set up

Isaac Galindez

I have fun with my kids there today..... also beer is always cold. The only bad thing is the line to get to. One cashier.

Kelly Wolf

Had a great time there. Lanes where in great shape. Very nice and clean and people where very polite.

Joey Dee

Great food, service, and entertainment. .@++++
