"Last Resort"

Hi there, went Saturday only because the lane on Halsted & Grace was closed down. Yes, the place is to old and the poor person they have manually picking-up the pins is not my cup of tea, come on now, we had to wait for him when he took a brake. I will be looking for lanes elsewhere, don't get me wrong I'm not knocking people who like that very old school feel it's just not for me. I will not go back even if I had a coupon. SMILE

Great pool room with super high ceilings, large windows, and funky old chandeliers.

We had to come here because our usual pool joint was booked and what a pleasant surprise. The tables are well maintained. The cues are good enough. The pool room is AMAZING with super high ceilings, large windows that open up for a great breeze on a warm night, and funky old chandeliers. Lots of people but not crowned and the price was right on the money. We will definitely start coming here more often.

Great retro feel

Have a few beers and shoot pool on a full size table not a coin operated mini table.\r
After than bowl on the same alley your dad did (if he went to Lane)

If you're not a regular, don't apply

This is a cool bowling alley in the hood...But if you aren't a regular or a pretty young girl or kind of hot guy you can forget about anyone paying attention to you.

This neighborhood place spins what should be friendly into neighborhoody & stay out if you ain't from here.

The lanes are O.K., the shoes look like they are as old as the business and they are proud of it.

The weekends are impossible if you are from the neighborhood because they are overrun.

Food takes forever. Sometimes the staff is friendly, sometimes they don't care, just pay them.

I bar food!

Yes---tasty bar food, nice size portions and good beer selection. Fun neighborhood establishments are hard to find, but Southport Lanes rocks! I like the billards also now that I'm into that. Can be crowded at times, but that's the mark of a good place, don't ya think???

Great Place!

I have recently visited Southport Lanes for my first time. What a great place! I bowled like a rock-star, had an awesome burger and tried 3 beers I have never had before. I will definitely be back!
