Worst place I have ever been to. Staff needs to learn that customers pay their salary. If u send everyone away then u won't have a job. Stay away from this place.

Worst place I've even been to. Employees are rude !!!!!!

They think they are doing you a favor to have you play there for $6 a game. GO THERE if you are in a mood to pick a fight with somebody!!!!!!!!!

RUDE RUDE RUDE

Last night I went on a date to SHELL LANES near McDonald Ave and Ave X and it was a nightmare!!! To begin the fat , overly tanned, 50+ year old, wanna be Sopranos character, who works behind the counter was very slow and it took me 15 minutes of waiting while he talked to other people to get my change. After I politely requested to have my lane changed because the players next to me were extremely rowdy the guy repli... view more

Rude

I have been going to shell lanes for years and I can say that service as well as morale has definitely gone down. If you want your children to be harrashed by league members and be kicked out of their guests seat, feel free to take your kids there. My child was sitting on the guest chairs when 3 league male adults approached him and told him that he HAD to move out his seat or else they would call the cops on him. ... view more

User review by nycsunlight

Ive been a league bowler there for over 15 yrs on the Sunday Night Classic. It upset me when i was informed the Founder/Secretary did not return for the 2005/06 season. The league will never be the same. Im sorry for management not doing more in have this gentleman come back or offer more for him or his league more services. I know the league is a mixed league and has gotten bad raps from other bowlers for not p... view more

Fun & Friendly

Great place to have a few fun games with the family or friends. The atmosphere is unrushed and friendly. There are rate specials, making more economical. The only thing is that they could get a better selection of balls. Allan at the Pro Shop is extremely knowledgable, friendly and willing to help. There's a snack/food stand and a bar! and of course video game machines for the kids.

Great specials, poor balls

I've been to shell lane many times, as well as other lanes around the city. I find shell lane to have the best price in town, when there are specials. Price as of summer'05, 4 dollars per game, summer weekend special is 2.25 per game. Now the bad stuff, the balls are bad, most of them are chipped, no grip protection rings on many of them with sharp edges, easily get your fingers cut. THe lane, they have mulfu... view more

Shell Lanes Is Da Bomb

I've been going to this place since I was little. I remember how many changes were made. I remember the fire they had a while back. Shell Lanes is like a 2nd home to me... plus my brother-in-law works there. It's true that the ball returns are slow, the computers need to be updated and the snack bar help can be rude, but the people who wake up in the morning to work at that place make a difference. They bust their as... view more
