We needed something to do to pass the time in Escanaba before we went to our concert. There isn't much to do in the winter time so we found this bowling alley which we are so glad that we did. We went bowling, played air hockey, played pool , had lunch, etc. It was a great way to spend the... More

My son wanted to have his birthday party at the bowling alley (even though he has never been bowling and nobody in our family is a bowler). I called and made reservations and they were quite friendly and helpful on the phone (a good sign). When we walked in, it was what I expected. This is probably your typical, small-town... More

Very old place with very old equipment, namely the bowling balls. These balls were HORRIBLE with dents and chunks missing out of them. Couldn't find one to fit my fingers (and my fingers are average) that didn't hurt !!!

I love this place. They have great staff, good food, and many specials during the week. I love the cyber bowling on Sat. nights 9:30 - 12:30. They also have bowling leagues for all ages. Great place

Planned to bowl with another couple after dinner a few weeks ago and was surprised to hear that we'd have to wait an hour when there were more than half of the lanes available. I called ahead of time to ask about pricing and to talk about what time they normally get busy so that we could make sure to... More

The Bowl-A-Rama has good prices for bowling (some nights they have specials), as well as real food and a bar. Its been awhile since I've been there, but the last time I hung out at the bar with some friends (you can be accompanied by people under the age of 21, no they cant drink) and they have a dance...

Fun place to go with the family or a great game with friends. It's old-school bowling with a twist~!

I like a Bowling Alley with a place to sit and no smoking. That is great. A friendly staff and there is food available during certain hours. A good place to bring the kids on a weekend. They have bumper bowling available and do have Birthday Party deals.
