Success! Thanks for posting your review of Harlem Lanes. You’ve done the world some good today.

Not A Place for Parties

My non-profit recently arranged a 2-hour, very expensive, early evening volunteer bowling party. What a disappointment! The food was awful (cheapest items on the menu) and far less in quantity than was agreed. The service was inattentive and ineffective (talking on cellphones, etc.). Management's deception bordered on the down-right dishonest. Avoid this party location at all costs.

Great Lounge!

Went one night with friends and had a great time hanging out in the lounge and bowling! There is a great atmosphere that you will not find at other bowling alleys around. I'll be going back soon especially since I found a great deal from buywithme (3 games and a shoe rental for only $13) Here is a link if anyone else want to check it out:

Worst bowling experience ever!

I had been once before, and had a good time. But this last Saturday was enough to let me know my first trip was an anomaly. The floor was sticky (which nearly ruined my bowling shoes - I had to go home and scrub the gunk off the bottom), the pin resetting machines would regularly knock down pins instead of picking them all up, and children were allowed to run free - which included UP THE ACTUAL LANES. Now, the parent... view more

Bad Food, Bad Service, Bad Management, Bad experience.

Is there a 0 star rating because this place is LOUSY!!! Very unprofessional. Poor food quality. Lousy lanes. Terrible equipment. I had a party @ Harlem Lanes on nov.29th '08 and to mine and my party's dissmay, our experience was a bad one. After having done a party here last year and having had a good time, thought I would do it again. It was as if the lace took a compete three 60. The food was not very good (the p... view more

I agree with the first bad review. They tend to let all their friends in first and then deal with the people they don't know. The food is super basic and costs almost $10 for 3 strips of dried fish and over cooked fries and soda. The lanes are constantly keeping the equipment and you have to wait forever for service to get your bowling back. They always say upstairs is not available but here come the hood ratz and th... view more

Best bowling food in the city......

I bowled here for two years before moving to another league but, I will always give much love to Gail. I was always right at home at Harlem lanes. Workers are very well mannered and very helpful. I give Kudos to both young owners for their wisdom in making this feel like a family run business. Please keep up the good work....

horrible service

I went here to have a good time play and have some drinks. Didnt get a chance to do any of that. From the door I had a horrible service got me very annoyed. when I first got here a gentleman had told us to wait. I had to wait for who ever was behind the desk to come back from the bathroom. ( that wasnt a problem).. we waited 20 minutes she still never came, but at this time he saw a group of a bunch of young gir... view more

We had a BLAST!!!!!!!

The atmosphere was so cool. The drinks were good, the food was surprisingly really very good!!! Bowling alley food usually is the worst but they put that ""sista girl"" touch on the menu and worked it. The staff invited us (a party of 12, thirty something woman) upstairs after the lanes closed to party with them a few others we were partying and having a great time. I can't wait to go back!! "" A big fat ""Job well... view more
