If you are looking for fancy and upscale this is not the place. If you are looking for a classic hometown Milwaukee experience, this is the place for you! 4 lanes of duckpin bowling. Make sure you have a reservation first. The pin setters are so cool and we had a great time. Drinks are pretty reasonable as well. We... More

We took our kids to Koz's to try out the old school mini bowling lanes and had a lot of fun. Small corner bar in a typical older south-side of Milwaukee neighborhood. Don't expect a lot of flash. Pins are reset manually, scoring is pencil and paper, but with that in mind ahead of time we had a good time.... More

Neighborhood bar meets bowling alley...what's not to like? $7 pitchers of Miller High Life, great digital juke box, and coolest party bowling you will ever enjoy. Don't forget to tip the bartenders and especially the pinsetters!

My wife, daughter and I went to Milwaukee to visit my older two daughters to see our new granddog. My older daughters said let's go do something that involves math and exercise. It was going bowling at Koz's Mini Bowling. It was a complete blast bowling and watching others. The place is very old and has only 4 lanes. The... More

We had a delightful time bowling alongside both families and younger adults. The friendly pin setters added to the charm of this quaint Milwaukee bar. Be sure to bring your match skills because there is no electronic scoring!

This is a great place to go for dates... the bowling alley is simple, much smaller than I expected, and they have actual people setting up the pins after each ball. I noticed it got pretty busy towards the end of the night, so you might have to wait a bit. It's definitely worth it though!

A true 'Laverne and Shirley' type feeling, and I mean that in a good way. Koz's should be near the top of anyone's 'to do' list when they're in Milwaukee. These mini bowling establishments used to be all over Milwaukee, sadly, only Koz's remains. Be sure to grab a few drinks and bowl a couple of games, if you don't,... More

I found this place on Trip Advisor and was hell bent on going here. I had the best time ever. We got in about an hour before men's league started, so we got to bowl 3 games and then hang out at the bar and watch men's league mini bowling and get to know Cesar the bartender and Romero our... More

Visited this bar because it was on Esquire's list of top 100 bars in the US. It was a quaint blast into the past. Cheap beer and friendly atmosphere. Remember to make reservations ahead of time for the bowling.

This one of a kind bowling experience is worth the trip. The cost was $5 adult/$3 child per game. Be sure to tip the "racker" well because he sets up the pins and returns the balls! No need for special shoes. My son had a great time because of the shorter lanes and smaller balls. Strikes and spares boosted his... More
