People were incredibly friendly from the moment we walked in. The place was really clean and didn't smell like smoke like a lot of bowling alleys do. They also have bumpers for kids to use when bowling. We will be back next year for sure!

Had a good time bowling with my family when the beach got rained out. A nice older facility that looks to be well cared for.

Had a blast at this place! Deanna at the snack bar was amazing, very polite, upbeat and professional! I was amazed that they have Pickle Pops, I haven't had them since I was a kid. They went perfect with the great cheeseburger that Lindalu made!...More

Came here for the Emerald Coast Invitational. Was a nice center, just wish the bar was more towards the middle since we bowled on the high end of the alley the whole weekend. But it was a fun tournament and will definitely come back.

Good clean bowling alley. The staff was very friendly & helpful. Bowling balls are available in all weights. Bowling charges were $2.00 per game. Right in line with bowling centers across the country.
