We deliberately went on a Thursday night to experience the famed zydeco dancing. For dinner, their "sister restaurant" around the corner & attached inside) is Ye Olde College Inn. We went there first, & the manager that night, Jordan Williams, couldn't have been more gracious! We loved him! There was a 40-minute wait to be seated. we explained that we'd... More

The Rock n' Bowl is always an incredible time. Great music and a super vibe! It's also the host venue of the Ponderosa Stomp. Super fun place.

We ate at Ye Olde College Inn (seriously delicious, consider making your night a double-header) and the manager there actually walked over while we were eating to put our names in for a lane! I think the two businesses are connected (by more than just the parking lot) and it works out perfectly. After dinner we walked over and bowled... More

The music is high quality and of varied styles: swing, zydeco, blues, New Orleans rhythm & blues, jazz, eclectic. A unique venue where bowlers and... More

Such a fun night. Geno Delafose and the French Rockin Boogie band are great musicians and play for a long time, a fantastic chance to see zydeco music. The venue has pretty cheap beers and a good relaxed vibe!

Went on a Thursday night and they had a Cajun band playing. It was really fun because the kids were bowling and some were dancing while the adults were able to enjoy an adult atmosphere. Good time.
