The Bar: Skeptical about this bar upon arriving. It's located at a bowling alley. As we've all been to many bowling alley's you would of never guessed that one would have a bar as large as this one did. This place probably seats easily 200 people. Has an L-shape bar, lower than most...no tall bar stools, just low seating all around. The main room has about 20 tables. There is a side room for parties with roughly 40 more tables and booths. There is an indoor smoking room with it's own ventilation separate from the bar, equipped with a TV and remote to watch whatever you choose.
The Crowd: Retired. I'm guessing late 50's to 70's. Certainly one of the oldest crowds we've experienced. Not that this is a bad thing. It's a comfortable place with a friendly crowd.
Service: At first, the bartender was in a conversation with another patron. Seeing how there was only one in the bar when we arrived, waiting 10 minutes for a drink was a little ridiculous.
Prices: Not bad at all, $9 domestic pitchers and $2.50 bottles of PBR.
Entertainment: Live band this night by the name of Veyna. Karaoke on Tuesday's & Friday's.
Restroom: Located outside the bar but inside the bowling alley. It's kept up pretty well.
Bartender Chat: None really. We did meet the manager Andrea and her mother Catherine who is the owner of the entire bowling alley and bar. Both were very friendly and both seem to care a lot about their family owned business.
Closing statement: Overall good time. The band was jamming and everyone was having a blast. We were only there about 2 hours but managed to leave with a pretty good buzz. If you're looking for a cool place to hang out, we recommend the The 13th Frame Lounge.
