Went for sons birthday and the lane didnt work then only got some of the money back. Even tgough we didnt even make it through the first game
I love it besides the police sitting outside waiting on black drivers it was great
I went bowling with my family during the day on a saturday. The employees were friendly and the establishment was clean. The prices seemed reasonable, and the lanes were in good shape. I did see in past reviews that someone said that the bathrooms were not clean , but when i was there, the bathrooms were in the middle of being cleaned.The employee said that it is cleaned every night. I would definitely go back, not to mention, my kids had a blast in the free arcade. That's not something you see at other bowling alleys.
Its a cool place to go and enjoy yourself
clean ,friendly and prices are reasonable
The comp kept messing up our score... the house balls are in horrible shape ie. Chipped and deep scratches. I went to order 2 orders of cheese sticks and came back 10-15 min later to find that they were never started on (if they were busy, I'd have completely understood but seeing as I was the only customer, unacceptable). This was our first visit and sadly our last as well... the only reason I gave a second star was because the greeter and shoe person were really nice. Also the prices are actually really cheap, however, you get what you pay for, for 3 people + shoes for 2 hrs: $30. We never made it to the second hr.
Been bowling here for about 4 years. Good lanes and good prices.
Went to bowl on Thur 9/17/15 with my daughter, who bowls on Tues. nights league. Was turned away saying no open lanes. We knew that was a lie. Lanes 82 to 90 open. Guess we were the wrong color.
After many years of bowling at Thunderbowl, this will be my last frame. This place is a total ghetto full of wild, crazy, pigs. (I can't even call them bowlers, because a bowler has common courtesy for other bowlers.)
It started when my party of 6 was put on ONE lane. (Lane 80) I understand that this may be your policy, but for 6 people?! Really? Then, after we got to our lane, the party next to us, was a large group of people who were loud and rude and had no consideration for anyone else on the lanes. I immediately asked the front counter if I could have a lane change, and with 2 lanes this time so my group could actually bowl. So we were moved to lanes 51-52. It turned out to be 10X worse! We were in between two large groups of people, who were again loud, rude, and all over the lanes. Some were bowling in their socks!!! Some were bowling in boots! Kids were running out onto the lanes and rolling around on them. Kids and younger teens were playing on the floor. Some kids were actually rolling around on the tops of bowling balls on the floor! Bowlers were throwing the balls overhand, and when the ball would stop mid-lane, or in the gutter, kids were running out onto the lane or in the gutter to retrieve the balls! (In street shoes, too) We also could not sit down by the lane because the other two parties decided that they could use our seats. I believe there are 4 bars in the building, and only 1 ONE was serving drinks, and with only ONE bartender! I won't even go into how long it took to get a pitcher of water and beer. It's not the bartenders fault. It's the lack of planning and staffing. (I help run a business, so I know what it's like to require adequate staff members, at the right time. Keeping customers waiting is very unprofessional.)
The frustrating part of about this, is that Cloverlanes, which closed back in May, 2015, had the EXACT same type of crap going on inside. Ghetto atmosphere, wild guests, lacking any type of security monitoring the lanes to keep the crowds under control. They CLOSED. The "guests" ran the facility, just like they did tonight at Thunderbowl. It's just sad, because I last bowled at Thunderbowl 6 months ago, and it was nothing like what it was tonight. As we were finishing up our final game, the lights were turned down and the music turned up. You can't turn the lights off with this type of clientele out on those lanes. In my book, it's just not safe. By the end of the night, we just wanted to leave.
I did make it a point to go to the front counter and speak with the Night Manager, who was very professional, but as I figured, she was short staffed and there wasn't much she could do. I will say, that she did offer me a place in the Arena either tonight or during my next visit, but sadly I will not be returning to ever take advantage of that opportunity. She did encourage me to rethink my decision, but my mind had been made as soon as I started to bowl.
I understand it can be hard to monitor each and every lane, (It's a large bowling alley) but something needs to be done. It can't be avoided or ignored. If it is, I'm sorry to say, but you will most likely end up like Cloverlanes. "Closed". The fact of the matter is that I will not be returning to Thunderbowl ever again. My party was not pleased with the experience, and they couldn't wait to leave the building.
Tonight turned out to be a regrettable experience, rather than a fun and memorable one with family.
Called to check open bowling and was told it was available after 4p. Nope. Got there and there was a wait due to a tournament. We took a slip which said go have a cocktail and wait... We will announce your turn on the PA. Yes they made an announcement but didn't include us. An hour later we were told we missed our turn. There was nothing else we could do but leave our ticket at the counter and leave. The whole experience was poor. False advertisement and poor management = simply a waste of our time.
Great place for a birthday party! Malcolm was great and very helpful. My daughter was very happy with her special day. Thanks again Thunderbowl Lanes!
Worst place in the World Why the hell do they have a phone number An not One of them Answers it And I mean not One. They don't even respond to their voicemail messages
This place is for bowling only. If u want good service forget it. I was there on black friday at 6 p.m. & surprisingly it was not busy. The staff does not seem to know what they are doing or care about customers. Two of them argued about how to do their job while in the middle of helping us. There are 2 bars. Good luck finding a bar tender. The food counter is like something u would find at a sporting event and didn't open til 6 p.m. We wanted to order pizza but they said they didn't have enough dough because of another party booked. The ladies working the food counter where very nice and did the best they could with what they had but if u have a party booked wouldn't u order extra dough? The management of this place truly needs an overhaul.
Always had a good time coming here. I wanted my hubby's birthday party there but they said that their parties were really just for kids. Their fliers and website don't really specify that but it worked out at Indian Lanes.
Had fun the other night with a friend. Hadn't been bowling since I was a kid. Loved the automatic score keeping and the psychedelic lighting.
Great staff very nice owner/manager. Drinks are good over 100lanes a cosmic bowl on thewest side of the building, the middle are regular lanes with music on open bowling nights, the east end referred to as the arena,is a club like atmosphere with bowling and a nice dance floor!
Bowling alleys don't exactly have reputations for being pristine but this one feels particularly run down. The alley is quite old and it shows. Mechanical issues and drab countenance scream for a much needed remodel.
Went here with a group of non bowlers. They accommodated us well. Its a mecca of bowling and is impressive to see even if you aren't into bowling.
Best place for pba bowling championships
I love this house!!
I would say they need to be updates.
This place is an ok bowling alley, a bad pool spot, and has the longest wait for drinks. I gave it 3 stars because it all depends on what days and time you come. I've been there early morning and it was great. Late at night on the weekends there is a line out the door, and lanes breaking down constantly. I went there 2 nights ago just to play pool because there was no way to get a lane. The machine for quarters was broken so I had to go to the bar for change. It took 15 minutes to get change for a dollar because they could only give a dollar in change at a time for some reason. I like the lanes but they break down too much. Wouldn't recommend on weekends but if your patient then go throughout the week and check it out.
They have 1$/Game bowling. Customer srvc sucks, we'll one person in particular. Bill is awesome
Called and asked if they had open bowling all day... Told me they do... Go up there and they say the don't have open bowling until 5 and they might not even have any lanes open cuz they have tournaments going on...so that means u don't have open bowling at all today and u could have told me that when I called instead I wasted my time and gas!! Smh!! Not happy!
Bowled here as a kid. Watched the place on television. It is still as cool as it ever was years later! Kudos!
The party area is nice. But one of the lanes kept messing up and the kids had to keep pushing the rest button. It was pretty cool otherwise.
I love bowling here. It's a good environment & even though we go when it's busy, Bill still makes sure we bowl. The arena is the best. Love it!
Love bowling here! Owner is a great guy and very friendly the bartender and food personnel are also very polite, two concerns for the establishment is understaffed, the service for receiving shoes, front counter, and especially the bar your almost always waiting because that crew member is busy doing other jobs and you must wait for them to return and sometimes can take up to 30 minutes just to get a soda from the bar. Also 1 worker in particular. There is a lady at the front desk whose name badge says,"Ms. Thang" this woman is very disrespectful and rude. Multiple times when your lane is having an error you must speak with her at the desk to fix the problem at hand. Ms. Thang will blame you saying you did something wrong at least she has to me on numerous occasions, she will argue you and when she finds out she is wrong she will not apologize, she talks down to people when she speaks to them which is not professional and this establishment could find a better person for the position that is polite as well as faster paced because this woman works very slow and does not seem to try to speed things up even when there is a crowd of people at the counter waiting on her.
Very fun! Great bowling prices. Went on a friday night. Got there at 11pm , bowling was $12 until the end of the night. Wasn't too crowded. Good drink prices, friendly staff, great atmosphere. Even have a security guard to check people at the entrance so extra safe. Overall I had a great time!
Is it strange I actually look forward to using the women's bathroom here? It's updated and most importantly, CLEAN. I can't tell you how miserable it is as a lady to go to a bowling ally or bar and the bathrooms are nasty. They are also making renovations on many things. The tvs are still outdated, but hey they work. I've came here twice and used a group on both times and they were very accommodating. They are doing great and I can't wait to see how they keep coming along.
Run down and the staff were not very friendly. But for the price. $10 a person for 2 hours of bowling is not so bad.
The café and bar was closed and the bowling alley was dark. Need more help had to find our own shoes.
We made Thunderbolt a part of our Family Reunion and everybody really enjoyed themselves.
The food there is pretty good with quite a few options. The bowling is fun, and usually, I go during Tuesday for dollar night. The bar also has a large variety of drinks. If you didn't know, this bowling alley is the largest in the world.
Fun time hanging with friends, celebrate my co-workers birthday had an awesome experience..
Awesome place to go!!! Had a great deal when we went so it was a cheap date night and the atmosphere was pretty cool. They were pretty busy but the staff was super helpful and friendly even though they were busy
The hospitality our group received was priceless. As a veteran, it was a refreshing outing. The staff went over and above. Great experience!
Last year things went really down hill with service, lane condition, and food bar. This year has been much, much, much better. Only three stars for now to see if keeps up on the positive.
$1 Tuesday are the best or Groupon for a deal!! Love this spacious bowling alley! Great for parties or just a good old fashion family day!! Date nights are great to w cosmic bowling room and dance floor
I walked in and was met with wonderful service at the entrance. The prices were reasonable and there were plenty of lanes for my entire group. There was also a variety of balls for people who needed something heavier or lighter. Even the younger kids can enjoy bowling with a lighter ball.
The manager on shift was awesome! My party arrived during a league, but she was able to accommodate us with two lanes and even had her caterer get pizza for us! I wouldn't be have expected her to go out of her way since there were only 7 of us but it was such a nice thing to do. I will definitely go back !
Normal typical bowling alley. Sometimes a little more crowded than I'd prefer but if you want to bowl, just bowl. Not much more to say. Nothing fancy. Cool place to go on a weekday date at night when there's not many kids in the laser bowl thingy. Dark room of lanes with cool neon black lights. Have a couple drinks and bowl over there!
This place is such a joke, they should consider turning this place into a circus. Why does it take them longer to prepare my food than my friends and I playing a whole game? I know damn well most, if not all, their food comes frozen. And don’t get me started with the staff! So ghetto! They would have better luck running the place by picking up bums from the street.
Too crowded. Been here twice. Cant find right balls. Bowling lanes are fine much like any other. But the whole place is pretty big in size
Love that this place is big enough that there are leagues and open bowling. Prices were reasonable. Great for kids and adults. Pretty good food too! Probably my fave bowling alley to go to.
Nice lanes. Had a nice time. Bit busy, but it was a Saturday night. Liked the lights and music. Could have used greater bowl selection (shoes were great).
Best lanes around! Best Deals hands down! 2 hr bowling specials that nobody can beat or even get close too! My buisness goes to THUNDER BOWL! Till futher notice... 😁
We came here for a birthday party and there was a lot of ignorant people running around bumping into you and not paying attention to their surroundings. The food was overpriced and the person serving beer and liquor had a sign at her bar stating no water pitchers and refused to provide me with water saying she was not allowed to give patrons water. I don't see how this is legal but I continued on with the evening. The bowling balls were standard wear and tear and the lanes rolled fine. It was definitely crowded but being Friday that was to be expected. I would not come back here if given the chance to go to another bowling alley in the area.
Me and my family enjoy coming to this bowling alley. The staff is friendly and the area is always clean. You can order food and drinks to make it an all day event or just come to bowl a few games. The price is decent as well, 7 dollars for shoes and one dollar per game per person. Our lane had an error when we first started but the staff was quick about correcting the issue.
Facility is good and clean, best part is price. We visited on a Tuesday afternoon, it costed us $1 per game + $4 shoe rental. I would recommend this place based on my experience.
Had a great time bowling here. Staff was great and very friendly. Just wish the location was closer to home. I will go back again.
Friendly and helpful staff. The music was good, and not loud. A very relaxing atmosphere. I Would definitely recommend it to friends and family.
I've been going to Thunderbowl for 22 years now loved it as much as I did then now.
Had my sons 2nd birthday party there and the staff really went out of there way to help us achieve the great birthday party my wife and I had for our sons 2nd birthday.
We also bowl on a leave there so if you need information on Thunderbowl let me know I know that place like the back of my hand.
The bartender told me I could literally not have a glass of water, I could not purchase even a cup of water or even a pitcher I was told it was an enforced rule. She was very sassy and told me to go to the vending machine.. there was no water selection even there. The lady at the snack bar was very helpful and even stayed open late for me to buy food. Yet the bartender told us that we could not drink or play pool anymore because they were closing it was 1:10. Its sad when workers just want to go home so you cant enjoy the actual open hours. I will not be coming back. Thanks for being rude and ruining a good night.
Nice lanes but the balls are not great. I have only been a couple times but I recommend calling first to see if there are lanes, they are very busy especially with leagues and such.
I usually visited the lanes from past 3 years, they have the best and cheapest lanes in and around Dearborn side. Saturday evenings are pretty much busy.
Staffs are well behaved
Some times lanes gets stuck in between games.
Best deal which i prefer is $10 for 2 hours games including shoes rental for a person.
Rude a** black chick at register. And I ain’t being racist, wanna make sure they know who. My brother paid for 5 people but because I didn’t start/ get my shoes with everyone else, she refused to restart the lane so I could start playing. Then told me at quarter to 12 that I couldn’t pay to play because they were closing. First time, drove from Warren cause the reviews seemed ok. Don’t know if I’d come back. Move the bartender to the register. Much nicer lady!
I don't normally one star reviews, but this is definitely one of the exceptions. The lady at the register was intolerant and rude. Once we got to our lane, the pins wouldn't set up and it was giving the wrong scotes to players. After that, the balls just stopped coming. We asked to move lanes, but then we just weren't getting full sets of pins. At one point I only got one pin on a fresh round. This was easily the biggest waste of $20 that I have ever spent. Please save yourself the hassle and go somewhere else.
Met the love of my life here so I will forever be grateful to this bowling alley.
We had a blast here for our first date and ended up spending hours here.
Overall the bowling alley was pretty clean, staff was friendly and we both had a blast.
Great place to bowl. They oil their lanes, great for families and birthday parties. Kids love the glow bowl and games. The arcade is legendary. Who still has an arcade in 2018? Thunder Bowl!
Went on a Saturday evening with my toddler son. Not to crowded. Did cosmic bowling with free arcade. Some games in arcade didn't work. Don't know how it is at nighttime. Left around 8. Security was there and it was a line at the door. Didn't order food. But a lot of people did
What happened to thunderbowl!? Used to be a beautiful place to bowl. You can’t bowl here anymore, most of the staff is racist, a comment was made tonight “...he was starting to scare all the WHITE people...” what exactly is that supposed to mean? First of all, no one was scared, and I’m white, so I can speak for the “whites” as well. The man she was referring to was being loud and ignorant. Not scary. Bottom line, horrible atmosphere, and overall a bad place to come with your family. Change the staff and the clientele, this isn’t a night club it’s a bowling alley. Also, the best way to end racism is to quit talking about it... it’s 2018. Not 1950.
The place is cool but something is up?!?! There is always one pin still standing no matter how you hit the strike. But over all cool place
The bowling alley was okay, but the snack bar is TRASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! On 12/15/2018, my family and I came out to just have a good time. I had to pay $5 because they charge for non bowlers??? However, that broad Kat (at the snack bar) has no type of customer service skills. They tried to give me cold food, that they claimed was in the warmer. SMH!! When I asked for hot food, she push the tray of cold food and said- “that’s your food”. So I had to talk to Pat (a supervisor) to possibly get my money back, because Kat refused to make my order over (which was chicken, fries, and a drink). Spoke to Vicki (who is supposed to be the manager and she did “nothing” about the situation. I told her what happened, which was a waste of time. Instead of taking the money (that was refunded) over to the snack bar, so that my daughter could have something to eat. She kept saying that Kat (at the snack bar) story was a little different and that she would call me later. Call me later for what??? When I’m currently standing in your establishment!!!!!!!! SMH. So I was still there (because my group was still playing) with no food. Later on, she walked pass me and said, “I’m going to call you later”. I told her no need to call me. I will never go there again.
A wonderful place for all family's & bowling leagues to have a great time and meet great people and new friends. also they really care about all veterans and their families and their staff are very welcoming and knowledgeable about bowling & can help you with getting the right equipment to have a great bowling experience that can last a lifetime of fun again the entire thunderbowl staff are the best & as a veteran myself I. have always been well received by the thunderbowl staff and all the positive vibes I have please enjoy their place great league action as well as a home to professional bowling leagues enjoy
Family friendly environment. Get a quick bite to eat. Buy a new bowling ball and get a drink if you like. And you have plenty of free parking.
This was a nice place to have Birthday party for kids and even adults. Very colorful and fun for kids. They enjoyed themselves a party they won't forget. I like the music and how they play the video along with the music. The people was bowling and dancing. Also like how you get a party room included. That way you don't have to have food all out with the public. Book your next party there!
They were very helpful with our group, made sure we had enough kid bowlers assistance, refilled drinks, very attentive to us! Even displayed the gender of the baby on the monitor! Very satisfied
Had a great time. Organized a fundraiser for our family reunion, and Cindy, the Event Coordinator, was super helpful and made the whole process extremely easy.
Still a legendary place. always cheap bowling and beer , but has gone down hill . I suggest they let CPL holders keep their tools at the door because the armed gaurds where not on point per say. i got in with my knife amongst other things but i am responsible law abiding citizen, that may not to be said about others who may get past the door security
Have done an Annual CAM Tournament here, for about 30 years. The Staff is always friendly, and helpful, the Lanes seem more consistent. The quality of the Food served Buffet Style is NOT as good as it used to be, thats for sure.
Awesome restaurant!!! Great atmosphere. Nice patio seating if desired. Service was first rate too!!! Had the fried chicken appetizer with a sriracha maple...read this and 335 more
