We were the only other group bowling tonight with the others who wrote the previous review. The staff was very helpful and let us know as soon as we got there that they were closing at 11 due to the low turnout. Even though there was a only us and the other group, the staff was very accommodating and we had a great time. The music, food and drinks were great. My only complaint was the other group. They were given the same heads up about the early closing time, since we came in together, but continuously belittled the staff for hours. They were obnoxious the entire night, were hardly inside all night(eating dominos pizza, drinking liquor, from their cars and doing drugs in the parking lot). I even overheard the girl talking about how the staff didn't want mess with her while I ran out to my car. The guy she was talking to said to calm down because she was on probation lol. We finished our games before them, since they said that they were not leaving until the staff threw them out. Not sure if there were any issues later, but I hope they just left the friendly staff alone.
Long story short - We had a great time. The party of 9 or so were very disrespectful to the two managers on duty. We always have a great time and it's people like this in the world who somehow find a way to get in a fight about everything. These people should just stay home and yell at each other next time! Anyways, I have ever experienced anything like this here before. I highly recommend these lanes for your family. The staff, even the two on tonight, are always extremely nice!
And to the one who wrote the review saying that they have their groups parties there... not only am I shocked that you are actually employed with the personalities in your group, but also I'm sure AMF will not miss your party if it comes with the headaches you caused tonight.
Two sides to every story. I have never written a review before, but heard you say that you were going to be writing a bunch tonight.
Dont feel welcome... Called ahead hours before. Came in ordered 4 games and a drink, bartender was nice! It's a Tuesday night and they close at 12. Half way through a game, Went to order food and the kitchen said they just closed, it was 950ish and we were told the kitchen was open all night by an employee. Ran outside to the car and an employee was smoking weed outside and returned to work. Then half way through the second game they told us they were closing at 11 but we had 2 more games to go. And the door said 12 and we were told 12 ahead of time. We ordered pizza to keep in the car since we planned to eat there but couldn't and respected the no outside food. Then the staff talked smack about that and how they couldn't leave at 11. They never even offered to reimburse our two games if we leave at 11. They did keep the lanes open until 12 but didn't reimburse us for our last game or give us a heads up we wouldn't get reimbursed. Just feel very disappointed, disrespected, and unsafe with the staff after they yelled at us to get out. Our work events are held here and we will be looking for a new venew for them. Don't really feel welcome back.
