I half to be honest for the prices we pay to bowl its not worth it. They tripled the rates and have a rude staff especially when it comes to doing a birthday for one of my kids. Nobody was around when we needed help. I remember another night when I came with my girlfriend we waited a long time to get a lane this place is not what it use to be id rather go to melody which is closer to my house. The wild fights that sometimes break out are unacceptable sorry wont return.

This is a busy family bowling center.They have those machines with a claw that grabs nice big stuffed toys that are really easy to win good prizes. My only complaint was that my children said the inside of the finger holes were rough and irritating, but we went there a couple of years ago.They may have remedied the situation by now.

i had my child birthday at maple lanes in brooklyn. experience was very unpleasant. service was unsufficient, for exampes
our hostess all the time disapeared and when i confronted her ,she became very nasty,saying she could not stay with us all the time.( i thought it is her job as a hostess assigned to our only party at this time). lines got broken often and you have to wait 5 -10 min until they got fixed. would never return.

I've been to Maple Lanes a few times and each experience has been a very good one. The first time during the day on a Saturday, the lanes weren't very crowded, which was nice. We had a bite to eat at the diner in the bowling alley where the waitresses all called you ""Hon"" and wouldn't let us leave without a cookie. The most recent time I was with a work group and also had a great time. This visit was on a weekend evening - the staff was very friendly and efficient, we waited in the bar for everyone to arrive and got a lane immediately. We played a few games and had a great time. I would recommend Maple Lanes to anyone, particularly a group looking for something different and out of the city.
