had a car incident here last week, called many times to ask for them to check security camera (general manager has access) and ask them to call me back. No call back for a week, I had to call 4 plus times and leave my info each time. Angela finally called me back, thank you. Long rant short...general manager at... More

I've tried to go to this place a few times when I visited my family and every time I've had a bad experience. The food is bland, and over priced. The drinks are over priced and our pitcher smelled like vomit. I picked up pool balls to play pool and the bar tender who I'm assuming thought I was drunk... More

We came in to bowl and didnt realize that there was a full service restaurant so we decided to eat first. We ordered something called Specarouse to start and it was fantastic! Seasoned beef and bacon in a fresh baked bun, it was delicious. Then we had the Meat Lovers pizza, sauce and cheese were in the right amount and... More

I went with my 3 kids (all toddlers). The service was so-so. They were nice enough, but certainly didn't go out of their way to make it a memorable first-time bowling experience for my little ones. We chose not to order food as the prices are expensive and the wait time for food (based on a previous experience) is very... More

Cool place, bowling, arcade, pool tables. Pretty clean place, enjoyed the arcade although the old school pinball machines were relegated to a dark area in the hallway. Played a couple games of pool, everything reasonably priced. Not sure why tripadvisor has it listed under restaurants.

This used to be a fun place to go. Now the benches where you sit to put on your bowling shoes are in such tatters that I refused to let my kids sit on them for fear they might fall through the material. The tables were sticky, the bowling balls were sticky- there was a used tampon on the floor... More

Its no wonder the other reviews Re negative. This place has horrible service. No proper uniforms, or presentation of staff. Poor attitude. The building and facilities are very good. Bowling, lazer tag, billiards and darts. Its too bad the service isnt there to support it. Needs good leadership and hospitality training for staff.

Went bowling. Then made huge mistake of stopping for a drink and snacks at Diversion. Service was the worst I have ever seen. Three waitresses talking and dozens of tables complaining and unserved. Had to skip waitress who never arrived at our table of 10! And buy drinks directly at bar. Nachos were crap, burnt, cold and crappy. Wings were... More

As I write this, I'm still stunned by the disgraceful treatment afforded a party of 12 children and parents who were booked for an evening at Gateway Entertainment Centre on December 6 -- not only in the abysmal failure of the centre to provide the services reserved and arranged but in the reaction of management to complaints made about that...
