My wife and I were looking for something different to do so we went bowling, something we haven't done for many, many years. It's candlepin bowling so the small balls make it easy for everyone to get them down the lanes. The staff was very friendly and we were able to get a lane without any wait. They also have... More

Service was friendly, fast and attentive. My daughter and I shared some appetizers, which was more than enough, taking some home with us. We had the pork sliders, ribs,BBQ wings with a side of fries. They offer 4 different house sauces, each were exceptional. The ribs had a nice dry rub, moist and delicious, my favorite were the wings. The... More

Candle stick bowling is a blast. The pins are narrower than regular pins and the ball is actually a boce ball. Much more difficult than regular bowling but a lot of fun. The alley also has a very good restaurant. I had a very good cheese burger that was perfectly cooked. My wife had a pulled pork sandwich that was... More

This place has candle pin bowling which is very different from regular bowling but it was def a fun experience. the only downside is you have to push the button to reset the pins after your turn..that got a little annoying after a while. The owner should invest in making it automatic..

Second time we have been here. The last time was last summer before we spent our last night on the Cape here. Not a blip...same great food as last year. The person at the bowling counter was very friendly. The waitress that greeted us was as well. We ordered fried green tomato and they were very good. Ribs very good.... More

The bowling was fun but if you don't go all the time, there might be a bit of a learning curve. Didn't know until about half way through about the ramps the kids could use or if we could bring beers onto the lanes. Not much explanation or guidelines. Not too cheap either. The kids had a great time though... More

Step back to the 50's with this nostalgic bowling alley. The new owners have done wonders to renovate and modernize while maintaining that retro experience that is a one of a kind. For visitors who have never tried Candle Pin bowling, you are in for a treat. Perfect for children who get a chance to bowl like adults by holding... More

This bowling center has been in operation for a very long time and it shows BUT we still love the place and go every Wednesday night for a "girls' night out." The most recently added offerings of food and drink totally make up for the old balls and rundown appearance of the alleys. I've had the ribs, burgers, fried green... More
