REVIEWS OF Rocket Alley Bar & Grill IN Washington


Food was great and they have a 6 lane bowling alley. How cool is that!!

Panda B

The food at Rocket Alley is great. The staff not so much. I’ve tried to be friendly and say hi, but all I’ve ever gotten is a blank stare and rude remarks. I’ve gone in many times hoping who ever I talked was just having a bad day. This was not the case. I’ve been treated rudely so many times that I will never set foot in that establishment again and tell my story. For the way I’ve been treated there, I will encourage as many people to stay away from these rude stuck up snobs.

John E

Great American food. Best french fries ever! Steve the owner is a great guy. Old school bowling lanes add to the fun.

ashley joseph

Shari Bardell

Tom Marshman

Consistently good food, personable staff and clean.

Kat Sykes

We came for the 1st time tonight on the recommendation of locals (having only lived in Arlington a short while). We ordered pizza and are we happy we did! Really love the thin crispy crust. The toppings were plentiful and tasty. I believe we have found our new "go to" place for pizza. Best we've found in the area, and we are very fussy. We will also have to come back to try the burgers. Very happy we found Rocket.

Arturo Anguiano

Family friendly. Good food. Good value for kids meals

Jason Cahoon

Great place

Bevetly Parker

Always great food

Jon McDaniel

Food was okay, if you like over-priced greasy bar food while being waited on by a waitress with the attitude of an insolent child. Wouldn't recommend unless of course, painful mediocrity is your vibe

Ryan Hollander

Great stop for bar food, reasonably priced drinks, and great atmosphere. The bowling lanes definately add a unique twist.

the slime sisters

Amazing food and friendly staff.

Robert Smedley

Good prices friendly people and bowling. The food was good and the drinks were a reasonable price. Nice for lunch or dinner and the kitchen looked really clean. I recommend this place for a beer and some frys while you watch a game or like bowling.

m alstad

Nice vibes and good food!

Rachel D

Just a homey get place for good food. Plan on going back really soon

Elaine Mitchell

Not that big of a place, not that big of a menu. And the service can be slow or your over looked. But I love the coffee, food and prices. For the last month my kids and I have had breakfast there every sunday.

Michael Fulgham

Terry Berns

Food is great, staff is great. Prices are not unreasonable, quality and quantity are met. Clean environment, gets kinda busy. Not very cozy still. Outside seating as well.

Zack Gobel

The staff was friendly and the food was good

Jess K

Great food, especially the burgers! Good drinks, cider too! Classic old style bowling. A true gem of old Town Arlington. I'm so glad it is still around and hope it stays around for many more years to come! Awesome service too, friendly servers!

Sunshine Stevens

My son is eating a Keto diet so in if our go to treats are chicken wings. We wound up driving around for an hour between Marysville and Arlington looking at menus. Finally my son was just starving and we saw the bowling alley and went for it. This has become our favorite chicken wing spot. The wings are delicious and the price is the best around. We didn't set out to eat there, but we have since then and will agian

Nick Stach

Family owned. great place to see the friends and family. Sports bar atmosphere but well done. Love going here in the summer and sitting outside.

A great small-town classic 50s 6-Lane alley with above floor ball returns. Food, drink, and staff are always point. My daughter and I adore it.

Good food very nice

Heidi Swanson

Valerie Huffman

Very cool old fashioned little bowling alley in Arlington, WA. Super friendly staff.

Trademark RCS

Rocket Alley Bar & Grill is a perfect example of a hidden gem. Their lunch specials are off the hook. $7 and the 3 specials of the day change with the new day. Monster taco, awesome. Tuna melt, awesome. Some turkey sandwich I had, awesome. The aviator pizza, same idea, awesome.

Joshua Portillo

Great food and service...

Angelique C

This place has the best food and the bowling is fun (gets you a little more involved when you have to score old-school). Servers are really friendly. Would definitely recommend!

Patricia Eberhart

Great food great servive

Justin Truman

Good food big burgers and sandwiches good prices

Jayna Cole

I LOVE Rocket Alley. Always great food, great service and with rare exception fast service. This place is popular for so many reasons. They have ample outdoor seating in the summer, and and old fashioned 6 Lane bowling alley you can observe from the dining room inside if you aren't bowling. Full bar that serves food as long as they are serving liquor where many bars close food services down long before last call. They also run a special that changes every day and is written on white boards put front to see as you drive by. I understand they even open for breakfast on the weekends. I have not made it into town for that yet, but everyone I've spoken with said it's just as great as the rest of the menu. Rocket Alley is a Hometown gem in Downtown Arlington. Wonderful for all ages. Come visit, you won't regret it!

Kay Rusher

Kids hand fun and good food

CHC 7187ce0

Good food and nice casual atmosphere

Valerie Parsons

The service was great, the burgers were yummy. However, they should provide umbrellas with every outdoor table. That was the only blight on the meal.

Greg Ensey

This place has the best dinner foods in Arlington. It has outdoor seating, bar, and 6 bowling lanes.


What a find! Bowling alley flashback, 6 lanes & hand written records! Huge menu, huge portions (at least what we got) a place to check out, but remember if you want to bowl be patient if its bust it has 6 lanes and looks worth it!

Robert Angilley

Over priced drinks and food


Stopped in for lunch with my little brother after driving down from Canada to pick up a gyrocopter from Arlington Airport. Deluxe bacon cheeseburger was well worth the money. Good prices. Friendly staff. Lively atmosphere. Your typical 50s style kind of diner with a bowling alley attached.

Salvatore McCarty

We split the Grinder, with tots - it was everything! This is a great little hude-away for catching a football game, and of course bowling. It isn't huge, but still feels roomy enough, and the staff and regulars are friendly.

Patricia Lilly-Godfrey

Always Awesome it's our favorite place to eat and hang out

Mark Ditzeman

Like it was pretty good and what not

Small with old school vibe. Get the distinct impression it has its followers and regulars but never seems crowded and everyone is made welcome. Have yet to find anything bad on the menu. Pizza is fantastic ( any of them!).

Misty Little

We always stop here when we come into Arlington

Marsha P

I live in the area and absolutely LOVE this place! The food is excellent, drinks are yummy, service is the best! Love the fact you can still bowl but still have a clean, fun place to have lunch or dinner! Steve did an awesome job!! Just wish they had Oyster shooters all year round! LOL

Angela Root

Food was cold and lanes are warped


Very busy place , good food and great service. This bar and grill is tied in with a bowling alley as well if you like to bowl.

Nam Nguyen

Small bowling alley + small town = nostalgic bowling. Small. Cute. Quaint. It's about as old school as it gets outside of a pterodactyl setting pins while a badger runs your ball back to you. But ya know what? That's kind of cool to me! You have to keep your own score on a sheet of paper - remaining pins light on above the pins on a old school wall. Scores can be held under a small projector that would essentially light it up on a screen above the lane. The ball return is above ground which is pretty cool to watch how a ball return works. There are only a few lanes (like 6) and the lanes aren't very well kept, no wax what so ever so straight bowling is pretty much the only style you can run with. The food wasn't any better than any other bowling alley or hole in the wall bar food. The nachos were dried up with cheese so if you take one chip, 15 other chips follow. The wings were decent of if you like it drenched in sauce. The hot was pretty darn hot though. $5 for a pitcher of soda isn't refillable either. Is it my first choice to bowl? Definitely not, but due to lack of options within a 25 mile radius it brought me back to a time when days and bowling was simple. It was a fun experience overall but because I take my bowling rather seriously - I would enjoy the amenities of the modern day bowling alleys better.

Natalia Wilson

Food was good. Although, I don't think that this warn out bowling alley that doesn't have any digital score screens is worth $20 an hour. The place has its own unique charm, I guess...

Sharon Young

I liked it. This is a place that makes you think you have gone back in time. This is a good thing. The bowling alley is small. It is old fashion.

Gabor Mihaly

I love the food and the atmosphere, plus great service!

Chadwick Chapman

Foods good. Service is good. They have a small bowling alley. Decent prices.

Tom Eddwen

This is a great place to go to for great food it might be a little greasy but its delicious. Forever 5 star

Jeff Saplan

Always find a friendly face to serve us. Great food selection and awesome value! One of these days I am ordering the party platter.

JosieRae Kyriss

Great bowling and food

Delano Berry

This place provides the perfect, small-town entertainment experience in classic bowling alley fashion. Service seems generally quick and attentive. They host a full food menu of burgers, pizzas and grinders with a nice bar selection.

Jim Savoy

For a small local place with great food cold beer and a outside area. If you are in Arlington and need a place to eat you can’t go wrong here. The burger basket is a great deal.

Ang Dear

Yummy burgers at great prices!

Josephine Stratton

Fun place to go bowling. Really nice people that work here.

AL Chamberlin

Steve has put alot of work into making this what it is. Staff including Lisa, the best. The food is great. Thank you guys.

Wendy Kopp Johnson

The burgers are the best in town and a great deal. Most of the food we've had has been pretty good. Service was great.

Nemo Paulson

Best food, service, and entertainment in Arlington.

Andrew Brodie

We brought our aunt & uncle after a day in the Cascades- we loved it! Great selection of amazing hamburgers in a bowling alley bar atmosphere. Nice outdoor area with a smoking section. Old-school bowling alley and great atmosphere for local families with kids and travellers. We met and talked with the owner Steve and his staff. Great owner and very friendly wait staff. Even the cook popped out to make sure our food was good. Definitely will make this a staple stop every time we're in the area!

Jeremy Bennett

Service was bad. My order wasn't correct and didnt get the right order till later. Drinks were always empty unless we asked. Terrible service tonight.

Elizabeth Hockett

The food was great and the service was wonderful and the presentation was the best.


Great food great prices. I had a deluxe cheeseburger and fries and it was on special for 7.50 what a great deal. My beers were also only 3 bucks and were ice cold. Even if you're not a bowler, this is a great place for food!

N. Kent Brown

Great old fashioned roast beef sandwich!


This place has THE BEST food! Let me tell you starting with their appetizers... the pot stickers onion rings and chicken wings are just a hint of how good your whole meal is going to be. I could order just from their appetizer menu alone and be very happy! Let's not stop there though.. Soup or salad? The homemade clam chowder they serve is a close 2nd to what my dad made after clamming every season.. So so good! The caesar salad is perfect to have with it if you're only having soup and salad... But that'd be a shame if you're at Rocket Alley...You can have pizza.. Try the Avitor... Enough said! (Or create your own pizza) You won't be calling anyone for delivery anymore. Back to their menu, I love love love their french dip sandwich with their sweet BBQ sauce, they have a spicy as well.. The sandwich is pretty big and comes with fries.. Their Ruben sand is phenomenal! Lots more sandwiches and wraps to choose from, or create your own sandwich Burgers? At least a dozen or more to choose from... Something for everyone! They also serve prawns, cod, clam strips... Yum!!! And when you're stuffed full and filled with regrets you can burn off some of that meal by bowling a few frames because you just ate this delicious meal in a bowling alley!

mailman Todd

Great food... fantastic atmosphere for kids and friends.

Thomas Dillon

Absolutely the friendliest place around. Food is phenomenal.

Gary Balliger

Great food and drinks and alot of it.


Great place to watch football. TVs are a little small but good atmosphere.

Katherine Martin

The place is really small only 6 lanes, but tv he staff is really friendly and the is good. Great place to bring the kids.

Richard Pollock

Basic bar and bowl cuisine...loud...great service

Jeremy Tellesbo

Always raved about their pizza, but today ordered our usual order of large Aviator, small cheese lovers, and small pepperoni. Brought them home, and to our sunrise they weren't the normal pizza we're used to looking at and eating. Normally there is so much stuff on the Aviator it falls off as your trying to eat it. This one looks like a NY style, same ingredients but skimpy. And after tasting it, it was very bland. Last time in my daughter got a cheese lovers, I tried a piece and it was EPIC, best cheese pizza I've ever had, so much flavor, this time, looked and tasted like a frozen cardboard pizza. I'm very disappointed with the lack of consistency. We love eating here, but at $50 bucks, I'm going to have to rethink where I get my pizza.

My Away Account Bruns House

Dataman StarTrekTNG

Nice little old school bowling alley with only 6 lanes, no electronic scoring, you have to keep score ink paper! Food is Great!

Doug M

Six lanes of bowling, food and drinks. Was fun other than the lame lone biker wanna be gang dude yelling at staff. They really should have kicked him out because be was causing a scene. Otherwise it was a chill place. Like my reviews? Give them a like! Thanks!

Brian Smith

Bowling lanes, good menu, full bar, great pizza and great staff!

Will Gilroy

This is a really cool concept, small, half dozen lane facility. The bar is good, great staff, too. The food is really pretty excellent, decent pizza, everything we tried was good. The reason this isn't 5 stars, this can get pricey awfully fast, so be aware!

Food was great and the service was excellent.
