We had a fun time here bowling a game with our 3 year old. It's an older place with 12 lanes unfortunately the lanes with bumpers were down when we were there but we still had a good time. I'd say we would come back again next time we are in town.

What do you do with friends who don't like football and it's Super Bowl Sunday? You throw a Super Bowl Party at the bowling alley before the game. We had a great time. We hadn't bowled in years but that didn't keep a few strikes and spares from making it to the score board along with a few gutter balls... More

The Owners and Staff of Beach Bowl helped us plan and execute a great birthday party for our friend. Everything, including the service, food, drinks, music, lighting, bowling, all combined to make it a super fun event! If you are thinking of throwing a party, Bill, Carlene, and their staff do a great job and can handle a crowd.

We were looking for something to do with the family one night and found Beach Bowl. When we arrived the owner Bill told us in the parking lot that it was league night and we had to wait to bowl. Went and ate and came back and he let us in. The ball kept getting stuck and he scolded us... More

That's right. On Wednesday nights they have a cornhole tourney in the bar at the alley. The food is really good and the prices are very reasonable.

This has been around FOREVER. Not a bad alley but older, even if fairly recently updated. Not actually on the beach but not far if you are looking for something to do.

We went bowling on a Saturday. So we had a really great time with disco bowling. It was not crowded, we had cool music and the staff is very, very friendly. Would go there again!

This is a fun older bowling alley. The decor is older but the experience was still fun! We had pizza and drinks and bowled our hearts out! They also have pool tables. I will definitely go back here.
