Torture Chamber Chairs – Check out the happy hour and date night special!
Best time – What a great time we had here.
Friendly and fun!
Great place to go to experience a good time, good food and good drinks!
Will be back!
Amazing in every way – Love it, can't say anything bad about this wonder. The service food and atmosphere ROCK! THANK YOU BLB! YOUR NEIGHBORS LOVE YOU!
Unique – Nice alternative menu. The only thing I would change is the coffee policy. Please go back to unlimted refills.
Disappointed – Tables are too small, the food was bland and over priced, and the service was extremely slow. No way I'd ever go back.
Great food, not your typical bowling alley – The food is fresh and wonderful with many organic ingredients. My party ordered the bison burger, the chicken philly steak, and the latka ratatouille. The rataouille was a great example of how vegatarian food doesn't have to taste bad and bland. This dish is full of flavor. The bison was execellent with a nice fresh taste. Service was good; our waitress was very nice. We went on a Sunday night so we didn't need to fight a crowd and we found parking easily. Will for sure come again to try the ahi tuna!
Busy but fun! – Just a very cool place to hang out, great atmosphere, with a really interesting (and tasty) menu of free-range/organic foods. Cheap, too!
good atmosphere, spotty otherwise – Be aware that when it is crowded it is very unlikely that you will get the opportunity to eat or bowl. I went on a saturday at 8, interested in drinking and bowling. The tables were all full so we sat at the bar. we were told 1 hr to bowl. at 9:30 we were told it would be at least an hour to bowl. at 11pm, with still an hour+ remaining to bowl we called it quits. by that time some of the tables opened up and it felt more like a bar than a restaraunt. The bartender was kind of indifferent to us. The waitstaff was not friendly in passing at the bar. the crowd seemed a little pretentious.
Come for the bowling, stay for the food and entertainment. – In Short
This little storefront bowling alley piles on the extras, with a restaurant, bar, coffeehouse and theater that offers plays, movies, music, dance and performance art. The setting is ultracasual: rickety wooden tables, no art, bowling lanes with original '40s-'60s alley furnishings. Tired old rental shoes, jammed into self-service cubbyholes on the wall, are included in the per-game cost. The restaurant features fresh fish, pad thai and hearty tuna steak and pulled pork sandwiches.
Best Spot in Uptown, dont pass this up! – The Bryant-Lake Bowl is my favorite bar, bowling alley, restaurant, breakfast place, theater venue, and place in uptown. I live in the area and this is the place I love to be! The staff is sweet, sincere, and attentive. The food is amazing! I have dietery allergies and they are always kind and helpful so I can find something to eat and drink, they never fail to impress me. The Bryant-Lake Bowl throws two free Block Parties every summer (their sister restaurant also doe Bastille Day) and offer reasonably priced, delicious, organic, sustainable food, and a free concert to boot. The Bryant-Lake Bowl is a great neighborhood restaurant that really seems to care about their customers, staff, and local community. If I could marry the BLB I would!
