Hosted a birthday party at Callahan’s Bowl a Rama recently and had a great time. Three lanes were reserved for us in addition to pizza and sodas. Our entire party was not there yet so they were accommodating and allowed us to wait until everyone was there. They even entered all the names in setting up all the digital scorecards... More

Fun family bowling. Great place easy to get to. I love how they are a family run place and they are open late night. It is a great place to catch up with old friends or make new ones...

Nice owners, perfectly maintained and oiled lanes, speedy modern pinsetters and computer scoring. And they are ALWAYS open 24/7/365!

A good bowling alley overall, but like anything nowadays, it's expensive even to take 2 kids with us. Staff pretty friendly and the place is clean. Once a year it's a fun place to go on a rainy day or for a night out with the kids.

We love this alley. It is clean and lots of fun. Lots of things to do if you are not bowling. The food was very very good.

A fun place to go with friends on a Friday night (for bowling and karaoke). But the clientele here are often very disrespectful to others bowling. Do not take children after 5PM. Staff doesn't seem to say much to others who are not respectful to other bowlers. The staff are helpful and quick if you, yourself need assistance on your... More
