Highlights included the fried mac and cheese and the posh atmosphere. By far the most elegant bowling alley I'd ever been too. The decor was grand with dim lighting and retro furniture. The waitresses wore burlesque type outfits, a great crowd pleaser. The furniture, which included three couches and two coffee tables in the bowling area, limited floor space for walking which was a bit of a hassle. The main couch shared by two lanes was covered in stains...ill. Forgetting about being at a bowling alley and enjoying the food was a treat. Potato skin chips with sour cream were perfect, and the fried mac and cheese triangles were the best. Most of the dishes didn't require silverware, including the vegetable platter and the coconut shrimp which were also good dishes, but when it came time to have desert Lucky Strikes provided utensils which were not clean. Both my fork and my knife had crust and water spots on them. Bowling is bowling, but if your going to turn it into a lounge and restaurant, clean your lounge chairs and your silverware.

Our waitress was hammered. We were up front watching Big Sam's Funky Nation ( http://www.bigsamsfunk...) and she came to deliver drinks. There were empties on the stage and rather than pick them up, she danced them off. Seriously. She swayed back and forth--gyrating hips, swooping hair--picking up a bottle each time she reached the outside of a sway. She kept stopping to dance. A buddy lit up 8 Js throughout the show. He was barefoot. I'd earlier seen him try and put on a dog sweater. I was just glad he kept his pants on this time. This place is the perfect amount of trouble. I have always had a great time here. Covers are $0 to $20, the music is cool, funky stuff, and they put on a professional show with solid sound. Booze is average price and the place is pretty damn simple: standing room rectangle with bar, stage, bathroom and coat check. Solid venue.

First time I came here I was 13! YUP! I got to sneak in because of a boxing match. I had the staff shirt on and all. I had to stand around the ring and let people know where to be seated. I can not believe they let me in! Good atmosphere though,
