Came in from North Carolina with friends for the weekend. Hadn't played candlepin bowling since I was young but I told my friends we had to do it and this place did not disappoint. Great setting, plenty of lanes, cheap beer, cheap games. And the guy at the front seemed amused with us outsiders and answered all of our questions. Totally awesome. I'm giving them 6 stars out of 5

Great beer selection, a touch tunes jukebox, friendly employees. First time ever playing candle pin and the guy behind the desk explained to us how to keep score. This place is great.

Feels like a bit of a time machine. Place feels like it came straight from the 80s movies. Not the automatic scoring machines we were used to - you have to keep score on a sheet they provide. And I kept forgetting to press the button to reset the pins - too used to playing on an automatic alley.We didn't know the difference between candlepin bowling and the more conventional one before going. So we were surprised to see the small balls and thin pins. Still a very fun experience.
