You have to go to STRIKE!!!. This place is totally cool. Definitely not your normal bowling alley... think upscale and trendy. Great for a group of friends looking for fun. The coolest bowing alley I have ever been too!
great deal on a monday night.
A bunch of us headed over to Strike on mon night where they have UNLIMITED bowling for 16 bucks between 9PM and 1AM (this also included shoes, which is cool).
The place has an awesome vibe and its cool to bowl with glow in the dark lanes and colored pins. The drinks are nice and strong and they have a lot of good beers on tap. Food is really good, had a couple of snacks to keep us going during our bowling marathon. If bowling isn't quite up your alley, they have a pretty big arcade as well as pool tables.
If you're looking for a fun night out with friends, Strike definitely tops the list.
Too trendy, not enough GLO in glo-bowling.
We've been here 3 times, so it's not that bad, we just don't know better.
Glow bowling? Not really. A few blue lights, so don't get too excited. Nothing glows.
Service is good! A tad expensive, but who cares after a few beers?
Convenient as hell, just walk to the movies afterwards, dinner, whatever.
A little too metrosexual, playing the whole after-hours swank thing. So, kind of eew.
Fun, Fun, Fun!. OMG...totally a fun time. Bowled terribly and laughed a lot! Can't wait to do it again. We were there for a friends birthday and had a blast. Music, vibe and people were just right.
Worst service ever!!!. I was there last night having dinner with my boyfriend. We ordered food and 5 margaritas. But when we got the bill, the total came out to $121.00. We spoke to a guy with long spikey hair and glasses. The bill said that we ordered 10 drinks ? 5 silver patron and 5 margaritas. When we asked him why we were being charged for 10 drinks which would average out to each margarita being $16, he said that the 5 silver patron was the alcohol that was in our margaritas and that we?re charged separately for it. He didn?t sound like he even knew what he was talking about and then he walked off. When he came back, he said that it was the computer?s fault and he apologized. We were irritated because instead of personally taking responsibility for lying to us, he blamed it on the computer. He was trying to con us out of $40. Then he gave us attitude and said, ?Well I said sorry already,? and walked off.

Poor customer service.
I had been to Strike a few times and never had I had a problem until today. I was reading up on some of the comments left by a few customers, and yes...I do agree to some points of what was left.
The service is not exceptional as I had experienced it today. I usually do not voice my concerns upon an establishment unless it is one that deals with unprofessional behavior. When I approached the bar, the bartender served me rather rudely. I didn't want to order anything after that since it looked like she hated what she was doing at that point. I told the manager about it (which happened to be three of them together at one time hanging out- they were working the establishment together, I presume). Anyhow, it was a surprise to me when one of them walked away when I was sharing my concern, another one of them was not even looking at me, and the other seemed to have been poking fun at what I had to say. I told them about the bartender's portrayal of customer service as I had seen it. The manager who was listening to me defended the bartender and said, "they must be overwhelmed right now because there are a lot of people." He then said, "well, how's your drink, is it strong enough for you? The best way to have vodka is on the rocks!" At that point, I was thinking...alright, well, maybe he's not taking me seriously, obviously...so I'll just walk away.
I had never been confronted with this kind of service, especially from a manager. The manager may have been joking around, but I think it was totally uncalled for, especially if it deals with a complaint that may affect their establishment. Hopefully, in the future, they will resolve issues of poor service so that customers may leave their facility feeling satisfied with their experience.
poor service. I stopped by for a beer and to catch the Monday night NFL game. I sat at a tale behind the bar seats and waited for service. The dining area was not very busy and the girls in Santa costumes were standing around chatting with each other. I waited patiently for almost 20 minutes before being asked if i had been served yet. I haven't tried the food but it looked good. Not sure yet if I'll go back.
Strike completely blew me away. Walking in, you really can't believe how fantastic the design and energy is - it really is a unique property. First of all, Strike is BIG. Lots of bowling lanes (34), a huge bar with about 50 high def plasmas and big screens, a sports ticker, a big restaurant and a large arcade. When I went there, the place was busy with a very hip crowd, lots of couples on dates, come hipsters competing and a cool bar scene. I also noticed a couple of corporate parties going on.
The lanes glow with a cool blue iridescence and even though Im a pretty average bowler, I thought the whole bowling experience was really good. There are comfortable couch like seats to chill in while you wait for your turn to bowl. And the service was excellent, very friendly and efficient and the waitress was quite attractive. Drinks can be strong but are tasty! Fodd was really good. Try the popcorn shrimp, the artichoke dip and the sliders. And the prices are reasonable, cheap almost, for a property this high end. 5 of us went on a Thursday night and got out for about $35 each including bowling, shoes, food and drinks. A lot cheaper than anywhere else we might have gone that night.
Interesting but expensive and poor service..
As of 8/2007 the cost for bowling for 2 kids and an adult was about $32 per hour plus around $14 for shoe rental. With two non-alcoholic drinks and an appetizer the cost for 3 games approached $75 (about 1.5 hours of bowling).
The lane jammed frequently ? had to go to the desk 3 times to ask to reset the lane and no credit given on the hourly rate.
It took 50 minutes to get served after placing an order for food. Manager did apologize.
Also went to the arcade it was expensive and the above stated cost didn't include the cost of the games.
Very nice environment and some employees were great but no interest in going back.
