Thanks for your review - our pricing on crab claws are based on market price. Our leagues are here on Sunday thru Thursday but the only night we have a full house of leagues in on Wednesday nights. Other nights we have plenty of lanes.

This restaurant is usually our favorite in the area for a quick bite while visiting family. However, over christmas holidays we were disappointed. Cold sandwiches and wraps were good. Seafood dishes were greasy and disappointing.

Definitely recommend this bowling alley. Facilities are clean, employees are very helpful and accomodating and quick to correct any lane issues to keep the tournament flowing. I'm looking forward to next year.
