The bowling center has 40 great lanes, the General Manager has been in the industry for over 30 years and he oversees the restaurant and how the food is prepared and has a great taste and price. The overall experience at this center was outstanding.

B.L. L

Fun fun fun! Great food, bowling and great place told an event

Aimee Miller

The bowling alley is fun and late night bowling is full of black lights and music. They have a bar that does karaoke most nights. The acoustics are good and the system is great. If you enjoy listening to good singers, head out to this place.

Kim Christianson

bowling alley food is usually pretty good, this was the exception. definitely need to take your own food (even though it says you can't)or wait till you're done bowling

Luis garcia

Alyssa needs to get fired!! I have never experienced the worst customer from employer at this location! I will never be coming back to this place due to the way she treated my self and all my friends!!

Nathan Gunderson

Fun place , good prices. We like going with the kids and bowling here

Emily Stewart

We had a great time! It was my first time taking my two daughters bowling and we all loved it. Only wish we didn't have to pay for the ramp so they could bowl, it seems like that should be free. But it wasn't much money do not that big of a deal.

David Bishop

Bar staff friendly, restrooms could have been cleaned, drink expensive

peter b

A good local bowling alley. Great food and deals and the arcade is decent. Way across the parking lot there is a play area/arcade/food place called Odyssey 1 and it is GREAT and SO FUN for kids. I know I had such a blast there when I was little. What I loved to do when I was little was go bowling here, then just drive up across the parking lots to Odyssey 1. You will really get exhausted but VERY worth the fun. Also, right across from this building is an old theatre named Galaxy Narrows 8 Theatre. I wish it was still open although it was very old but it was a really great theatre. What was really good about these places around was that you could go bowling and then watch a movie at Galaxy. It closed in 2013. They should really renovate or demolish that theatre and open up a brand new one... All the way in Tukwila (around Seattle) there is a fun little place called ACME Bowl and they have a GIANT claw machine. My family and I would always win big prizes and my siblings and I just wished there was one close by because that game is fun for all ages lol... Then later that August of 2015, my family and I drove past this bowling alley and realized that we haven't been here in YEARS. We went there and there it was! THE BIG CLAW! We were so excited and happy. We've been winning big prizes since and now our basement is packed with them... Anyways been going here since I was little but they should really renovate their bathrooms and their chairs near the lanes but this is a great bowling alley.

Claudia Elias

We had so much fun!!! Love bowling but bowling with these guys made it better! Our lane did get stuck and it was taking too long to fix the computer- they were busy and 1 guy had to manually enter in the names on each lane that stuck.. Pretty much all of them. Only 2 people working on a Thursday...? Need help.

Janel Sturzen

Seemed like a very nice bowling alley. Everything reasonable and the people were nice.

Esther Mendel

Employees are nice, atmosphere is great!

Patrick Kelly

Awesome Staff, Great Lanes, and 5 stars of fun. Will definitely be back again.

Bradley Cunningham

It's a good place to bowl. It's big in there. Plenty of parking. Nice staff.

Tracy Ohlenkamp

not busy on a Saturday. Had bummpers and light ballsfor kids.

Grace M

Good selection of food and a variety of games in the arcade. Place is definitely weathered and there shoes could use new laces. My laces were sticky like old gum you try to peel off the bottom of your shoe. I washed my hands immediately after tying them......ewww

Ethan Glover

The narrows plaza bowl is my favorite place to bowl in Tacoma! Call ahead to make sure you can get a lane! They have events and leagues that meet there frequently which can make getting a lane difficult.

JR Odom

Fun bowling alley with an arcade for the kiddos!

Brian Wescott

The food was not good there but the game than everything else was fun

Jessica Liotti

They have an awesome arcade. The food court has definitely stepped it's game up over the years, as had the lounge. Fair bowling prices too.

Michael Skiff

Great family friendly environment and a wonderful venue for private events and parties. We hosted a business mixer and the food was phenomenal - not your typical bowling alley fare. Highly recommend this place both for personal and business events!

Cody McDougal

So fun, and GLOW BOWLING?

Geneva Dunnaway

Great place to take the kids to for couple hours of fun!!!!

Marcus Langfeldt

Shoes and the bowling alley was in ok condition. The food wasn't bad either, as well as the customer service. Would love to come again some time.

Stephanie Pittman

We love Narrows Plaza Bowl. The staff are great. They serve a number of people with disabilities. They know each one by name. The facility is clean, the food is wonderful. We go at least once a week. This is the best bowling alley!!

chris hill

Awesome atmosphere. Everyone was really nice. Reasonable prices

Steven Whitcher

Really cool glow bowling and fun for all ages!

Veronica Jones

We had a great time the alleys are very modern and the bathrooms are very clean.

Hurko Co

Staff was friendly and the facility was very clean. Bathrooms were also very clean. This bowling alley is like what you see in the movies. A throw back when families went to have a great time bowling. The facility is vintage, but in a good way. There is an arcade section where you can win tickets for toys. Places to eat, a lounge and of course beers/drinks.

Peggy Lagon

Great place to bring the family. Just had a b-day gathering there and everyone was very helpful. The arcade is a lot of fun also. We all had a great time. We will be back.

Bob Larson

Great family friendly atmosphere and great food.

Erik Hasselquist

Great lanes and amazing staff. This place is a great visit with friends or family any day of the week!

Jason & Shannon Faulkner

Great little bowling alley, clean, spacious, awesome service. We had a really good time.

j spain Greene

My favourite bowling alley in Tacoma...and fortunately we still have several to choose from. Seattle destroyed almost all of theirs. It's very clean for a bowling alley here, bright. They have good promotions to save money if you like to bowl. I like the all you can bowl on Thursday nights. They also have things like pancakes and bowling on the weekends. Which brings me to the cafe and bar - both are solid here. I wouldn't eat here just to have a meal, but if I'm hungry I know I'll get a decent burger or appetizers. Cocktails are decently made and the bar can be somewhat busy here.

Shane Davis

I have a hard time NOT giving anything but 5 stars to authentic places from the 80s and 70s. Cant beat a bowling alley smell yo relive your childhood. Karaoke in the good times lounge with mainly older folks on sat. Nights. Good stage and sound system. But I feel sad if I sing faster songs on account of the older people who dont like newer music. Lounge is correct if you aren't going ri sings bartender makes his own drinks too. Real nice guy

Coolkidmafia206 Inc.

Very Cool place to bowl sorta expensive since you reserve lanes by the hour not by the game. They also have glow in the dark bowling. Pretty nice places for kids!

Kristina Baumeier

Great place to work. Also fun times with my boys.

Jeni Gates

Fun place to bowl with the family. It's our go-to alley even though others are closer.

MaeLynn Fowler

Family friendly atmosphere with awesome staff

Jose A. Garcia


Limon-Aaron Shavon

Fun place, good food, great drink's, arcade games, bowling

Jasmine Espinoza

Very entertaining! Definitely will be going back again.

Caryn Phillips

Kinda small and could use updated and better games in arcade

Mario Clark

Very clean. Well stocked. Arcade and bowling was fun. Did not try food. The boys (6yo & 3yo) had a blast. Very affordable.

Ryan Wells

Always well staffed, cleaner than average. Always ask for a way to get discount such as Facebook check ins. They also have daily deals, look into those for best deals!

Karen Nieto

Update! We came tonight, lanes full and my daughter was upset. I asked the lady at the counter to tell my daughter the lanes were full and she thought since the alley was quiet I might be fooling her....but people had reservations. But since another employee overheard us.....while we played in the arcade the employee came up and gave us passes to come back and play for free. I can just say as a patron, I respect that! This company cared about our experience. They went above and beyond to keep us happy. That is excellent customer service and definitely be back and will a always say good things about this place. I'm impressed!

GG Beecher

My buddies and I meet up once a week and bowl. The lanes are well maintained and the people who work there are nice.

Mary Danner

3 games & shoes for 3= over two hours of great family time. Note to self-- nachos are NOT worth it ( cold cheese sauce and soggy chips)

Bobby McKenzie

Excellent staff. They regularly lay out sport conditions for practice.

Kevin Bailey

Fun times, great atmosphere, and excellent food.

Jennifer Weddermann

Wonderful and creative food choices, best karaoke mic in town!

Miriam Askren

I had a little trouble getting a lane, reserve early.

Dawn Meyers

Great deal for a group rate

Laura Margel

Lots of fun for the whole family! The manager isn't very customer service oriented but his staff made up for his unpleasant attitude. We really enjoyed the evening overall.

Katie Jackson

A great place to bowl and have fun. Kids love it too.

Francisca Johnson

Awesome...been coming here since my oldest daughter was on the Wilson high school bowling team. Great for parties. Field TRIPS. Highly recommend

Götz Hollain

No bowling equipment available, no bowling shop.....drinks after 17.00 hrs only...friendly staff

Rachel C

Former Employee Starting in Snack bar(Cashier/prep) And Later Moved to Maintain Cleanliness of The whole Bowling alley (CSR/Janitorial) as a former employee, I Have to say, I love this bowling alley. I loved working here, Its a Fast paced enviroment when its busy and sometimes requires some priority based problem solving, but the experience of working hard, and seeing people happy, smiling, interacting and learning who regulars are, and setting up for Seasonal Leagues was rewarding. This bowling alley is a hidden gem, anyone could go to towers, or another alley nearby, but narrows plaza has a flair to all hired employees that all other bowling alleys lack. Working here was something I was proud of and always will be but now I'm on to an even bigger project.

Carol Edwards

We had fun on Kyle's birthday it was a blast the kids loved it


Fun place to bowl

Rick Knutsen

It's a good bowling alley. Outside is a bit misleading but inside its good... equipment isnt newest but it's B grade.

Lee LaZelle

Great venue for fun and and watching football games and great food and drinks

Verdon Malo

Good staff and good for the kids

Mel K

Love the arcade here!!! Awesome p place...


Great place to bowl and great prices

Tim Case

Super fun place, tired the kid out... as you can see.

Stewart Harmon

Great food and great bowling!

Kenny Nguyen

What can I say? This place is awesome, they have a lot of deals depending on the day. Tons of lanes, so be ready to walk a bit to get to the food and drinks. The staff is extremely polite and I wanted to write this to let them know we appreciate that very much. For example, we asked for a lane closer to the bar but were turned down because of League games going on. After that finished, they asked us if we would like to relocate. Thanks for keeping us in mind! I've been there a handful of times and it's now our place to bowl. Keep it up!

Elmer Mutchler

Great time, bowled for 3 hours, had a great time.

Jeff Carlson

Older style bowling alley with prices on the higher side especially for the beer.

Jamie Petlig

Had a big industry gathering here.was a good night. Pizza was superb.

Brittany Brown

I love the bar and bartenders i just wish the bar wasnt so closed off like in the back

Emily Rowley

Lots of fun!! Bring your family and bring your friends!

Bob Jones

A nice, neighborhood bowling alley. They have food, booze, and an arcade with prize redemption. Been here several times and always had fun.

kevin thomas

Good Lanes, sweet arcade, great staff and good bar.

Neressa The Wise

Only 3 bowlers per lane and pay by hour not game...


The front desk staff was helpful went above and beyond. But the snack bar needs to be quicker.just ordering your food requires a long wait.

dan ms

This is pretty nice bowling place. beside bowling they have game room, bar and food. prices went up on everything last two years so its more expensive then it use to be. But its great place to go sometimes.

Terrie Prestrud

Visited for the state high school tournament. Very nice establishment. Was surprised that they did not have a pro shop.

Tylor Walters

This is the best place to bowl when it comes to lanes, music, lighting and having fun. They have a cool little arcade room. This place is a little small but very homey.

Stacy Marie

Love Working here.

Eric Martin

Features an awesome giant claw game! The claw is a good 3 feet wide when it is extended and lowers about 3 to 4 feet once you adjust and initiate the claw drop. The claw closes on the desired prize which are a hefty 2 x 3 and 3 x 4 stuffed animals and other assorted characters. It's more extensive than the smaller claw games you see at other places but it's super fun for the kids. It's also an awesome 10 to 20 minutes if you are on a date at the bowling alley. A great ice breaker before hitting the lanes or a great closer after bowling with someone special.

Kyrsten Jackson

Bowling area is fine. No juke box. Arcade is awesome. Food is okay, they only have Pepsi products. Male bartender is a joke.

Novella Robinson

Great bowling alley and also have a great birthday package.

Jeffery Mitchell

The wait staff is in need of some coaching on customer service, I ordered the fish and chips for a total of $9.00. When the bartender brought the order, he failed to bring napkins, eating utensils and brought an Inadequate amount of tarter sauce. After tasting the fish, I realized it tasted burned and after further observation, I realized it tasted that way because the cooking oil had not been changed. The oil was so old, it made the fish very greasy so greasy, the fish was soaked through with oil also giving it a burned flavor, it was also very salty. Very bad!! When I told the bartender about the fish, he only responded by saying "I'll let the cook know". Proper response should've been "sir, I'm very sorry, May I offer you something else?" Or at least offer a discount. I literally paid for a meal that was basically inedible and the staff lacked empathy.

nicole lillie

House of the Dead's gun stabbed me so that I bled, multiple games ate coins, a dino hunting game's gun's accuracy was so far off up and to the right that it was near impossible to hit anything, it smelled gross, was cold...I could keep going but suffice to say I'll be going to a different alley next time.

Brian Olson

They were all very nice

Cody Keitzman

Family night was cheap. Like 25 an hour for 5 people. shoes, one soda and some arcade tokens included. Also food was decent.

Richard Newman

Always get a lane

L Mervyn

Love this place. Easy fun for an incredible price. Their customer service was great. I have been back several times and the kids always want to go!

Peggi Miller

This is a very nice family environment I suggest you come early to get a great Lane and enjoy yourself and turn your phone's off of course the lady that will be assisting you during the daylight hours is Page thank you we enjoyed our day today and will be back soon

Bobby De Luca

Great spot! Still caters to the league bowler.

Tom Pak

Old style bowling alley.. Manager he is great, but staffs need more training.

Lane Hill

Fun place. Good arcade. Foods good.

Stephanie Sage

So when we got here at 10pm everyone was looking like they were asleep but I was surprised at the energy here! People were dancing and genuinely having a good time. I really enjoyed my night here and will be back in the future!!!

Coreen Meyers

Had a blast with my bestie & the host Al Russell, that I've known for almost 50yrs.

Larry Fulton

40 lane bowling center with above average snack bar & lounge. Great place for parties & special events.

Bernadine Plancich

My grandson had his birthday party here and it was the perfect par Th for 6 yr olds

Helen Ell Tran

My high school team practiced and played here. I have wonderful memories here. I love the arcade area and very nice lanes. Service was always nice when I came.

Edward Sagissor

very spacious & really clean... I thought the prices at the snack bar were a little on the high side... ☹️

Ryan Reyes

bowling for schools is a joke. a much better explanation on how this actually works. the girls up front didnt even know. I had 3 kids along with my wife and we thought "hey this will be a cheap day to take the kids bowling and benefit the schools". No 1 game and shoes was 60 dollars. we drove from spanaway just to attend this so called "deal".

Kathleen Shetler

Love it good prices... Nice atmosphere

Syd ?

Nice bowling alley and arcade.

Anil L

Nice place and we always have fun here.

Annie Edland

They space u out. Most times r quite, more during the summer time.

Kaile Reames

Fun and lots of arcade games

Devin Mullenix-Young

Though Narrows could use some modernization/renovations, it's a solid place to go for a fun night out with friends or the family. The attached bar has reasonably priced drinks and an awesome KJ known simply as "Al" who sure knows how to host a party.

Katie Shirley

Here’s the thing. Bowling was super fun! The lanes are nice updated tv screens and super friendly staff. However, we had ordered cheese fries and it took a entire hour to get them. By the time they came to our table our group we went with was getting ready to leave so we had to take our fries to go and eat them in the car. Our lane was right across from the kitchen and about 30 minutes into waiting I looked back and no one was even in the kitchen. Someone finally came back about 20 minutes later. It was very very disappointing. Other than that it is a really nice bowling ally.

GIl Quante

What a wonderful evening I enjoyed. A group of us went into the lounge to enjoy beverages and appetizers. Chris the general manager treated us by presenting us some items off the special catering menu. Brisket sliders was my personal favorite. I added some of their barbecue sauce and yumminess ensued. They catering dishes that are exceptional, and I have tried, are the coconut shrimp I savored every bite. If you are looking for bowling alley treats, that are NOT your typical treats, head to Narrows Plaza and take a look. Carmella was our waitperson and was so genuinely kind and caring thanks for the great service!

LoAnd Behold

Always a pleasant experience. The food is great, the lanes and shoe rentals are reasonable, enough that I can go at least twice a month. Lots of fun and the arcade is a plus. Love the air hockey and the black lights. Wear a white T-shirt or scarf for a cool glowing effect.

Cissi Baker

Nice facility... However, they could use some ok me lighter balls with bigger finger holes

First Last

Alway have a good time

Ralph Heide

Karaoke Friday and Saturday night every week! Great venue

Daniela Bahena

Loved the combination of a bowling alley and a mini arcade

We liked our time there, will be coming back soon. I never done any bowling but kids enjoyed so much I'm playing next time with them:) Customer service was great and friendly, it's clean. Got a great deal too.

Wicked Nymphet

I love bowling here. The price adds up with 3 people and shoes too, but its worth it for how much fun it is. We pay per game rather than for a certain number of hours. Afterwards we like to enjoy the arcade. Very fun place to go as a family.

Tracie McCutchen

Prices affordable. Friendly Staff. Food from counter good..not great. But the do have a lounge restaurant there doesn't open until 3 p.m.

Sarah Perry

Tons of fun great stuff always makes me feel at home

Andrew White

The staff here are incredible. We had a large youth group outing planned that fell through due to another organizations lack of clarity. The staff at NPB rescheduled and made space for us to come and play in the time we had. We are so thankful for them!

Allison Cross

Customer service was wonderful. The cashier was super nice in helping find the best deal for my kids and I. We hadn't been bowling in awhile so it was nice. They gave you friendly reminders as it got closer to closing time. Definitly will be back.

John Coggin

It's like walking into the 70's but with $5 draft beers that taste like have fun!!

I recommend this place! Big arcade, many lanes to choose (beware of wooden floor!), and the prices are good. I'll come here in the near future!

Joel Trauba

Sharon Groh

Beer cost to much!

June Palacios

good place to unwind with friends.

Jason Gorley

It's a decent place to bowl. Expensive for an hour, time starts right after you pay, not a lot of options here.

Keith Blais

Lots of fun, extremely reasonably priced, but the arcade part is messy and more than a few Out of Order signs. I'd rather them keep their prices low than fixing the arcade though.

Almir trejo

It's a great place to hang with friends.

Daniel Montoya

Nice and energetic. Lights everywhere and music playing. Good customer service. It's one of the better bowling places!
