I've been going there for years but like they say, nothing stays the same forever. It was a nice place to bowl back then but now I've noticed its a bit more strict the employes are not that friendly and the shoes are a bit worn. I go for the pool tables but sometimes its not always that fun. You have to check it out for yourself.Provided by Citysearch
Yes, I joined a bowling league.... every Wednesday I drink beer, bowl three games and eat great thai food. You can even get beer in a bowling pin bottle - or a cheap pitcher if you're a real guzzler on a budget. The thai food and regular greasy spoon fare at the in house restaurant are amazing!! Yum, I mean the best food I've ever had at a bowling alley. The lanes can break down sometimes and eat your ball, but hey.. that's part of the charm. This place is old school... and I love...view more it that way!view lessProvided by Citysearch
I went with a group of friends on Saturday night, and we were treated extremely rudely after paying $14 a person. In addition, the equipment in our lane started to malfunction and we couldn't continue our second game. We went to talk to the employee at the desk, and he said he could do nothing about it. We asked to talk to a manager, and when the employee went to speak to him, we watched as he just laughed at us from a distance and brushed us off. We were getting upset because they...view more were essentially stealing our money, and then to top it off they accused us of being belligerent and had their security guards escort us out. Go anywhere else to bowl, you are guaranteed to have significantly better service and not have your money stolen. I know I will never go here again.view lessProvided by Citysearch
I went to Albany Bowl recently for a friends birthday party. I should have known what to expect form this place when we were greeted by two thuggish looking dudes sitting behind a raggedy table. Thats fine, I don't judge. So we buy our 2 game minimum each and have a good time playing, buying beer and giving lots of business to this place. When my friend shows up, we bought 2 more games. In the middle of the 3rd game they turned off one of our lanes and refused to let us finish the game...view mores. They obviously made a mistake but would not admit to it. This place is trashy. The customer service is poor. Do your self a favor and go to any other, much better run bowling alleys in the area. Two thumbs down.view lessProvided by Citysearch
MOnday and Tuesday special! And I wish there were more arcades, I love the ddr dance game. Friday saturday The lights and the music.. . If they had some kind of discount or coupon for the customers who come very often that would be fantastic.Share Review
This place is what community is all about. Great place for large groups, I witnessed a bowling mixer/contest with Cal & Columbia MBA graduates, then caught a man just miss 2 perfect 300 by two pins (a woman on the other side of the bowling alley got one at the same time.) Families & groups of friends can be seen all around, the food from the cafe is PERFECT for bowling frames and snacking, and the renovated Tierney's Sports Bar is pouring great cocktails & pitchers of beer. Nuff said...view more? Check it out!view lessProvided by Citysearch
I have been bowling for a long time now,been to many bowls. I must say that Albany Bowl is the best bowling center I have ever been to.
The staff was great and very friendly. The price can't be beat,they have many specials. Like $1.00 a game and $2.00 games. They offer a variet of things to do like darts,pool,video games. They have a resturant with a full thi menu and american food. The bar was nice and cozy....especially if your on a date.
I strongly recomend Albany Bowl.
AFTER VISITING ALBANY BOWL FOR THE FIRST TIME, I HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH A GREAT STAFF IN A BOWLING CENTER IN THIRTY YEARS OF BOWLING. I JOINED A SUMMER LEAGUE AT ALBANY BOWL, AND FOUND THAT ALBANY BOWL ACCOMPLISHES MORE THAN YOUR AVERAGE BOWL. GREAT LEAGUES, BUSY BAR, AND HAVING BOWLING ALLEY FOOD AND A FULL THAI MENU, I FOUND IT UNIQUE FOR A BOWLING CENTER. IF YOU ARE A DART PLAYER THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU. ALBANY BOWLS COCKTAIL LOUNGE IS RANKED IN THE TOP FIFTEEN IN THE WORLD AS A ME...view moreDALIST LEAGUE OUTLET. THE WEEKLY PRICE SPECIALS THAT ALBANY BOWL OFFERS THERE FAMILIES, SCHOOLS AND THE PUBLIC RANGE FROM $1.OO PER GAME TO $2.00 PER GAME. AS A LEAGUE BOWLER I RECIEVE $1.50 PER GAME ANYTIME I COME IN. IN CLOSING YOU'VE GOT TO GO TO ALBANY BOWL.view lessProvided by Citysearch
