10pin Bowling Lounge
Our lane was broken down for 45 mins, and they refused to comp us more than 20 mins. The service was great, but the drinks were severely overpriced.
The lanes are also very close together, and the booths are not a private booth but a bench against the wall not separated from the other bowlers. On top of that, they don’t seem to have a max of total bowlers for a lane, so the table next to us had 10 people and were coming into our space.
All in all very poor experience.
Not great service, spent more time waiting than bowling.
Eva and our host were great! Food was on point also!
Great service, had a great time, food was amazing. However, I called ahead and asked about pricing, told them the date we were planning on arriving and when we got there, they said they didn’t offer that package on the weekend.
Me and a buddy bowled 4 games and had pizza and our bill was $154!!!! That is absolutely ridiculous!!! You guys should be ashamed of yourself for charging people $55 a person to bowl!! I just bowled 3 games last weekend and it was $11 in the suburbs!!
The lanes are too close together
Place was closed when we arrived. With no notice. Even after making reservations.
It was fun . We arrived an hour early and still got a lane. Nice place good open space for bigger groups had a fun theme the light were cool although we weren’t attended right away waitresses avoided our table until we asked for service . Other than that great place amazing food! Pizza and wings hit the spot would come again !
Had a great server. Had a blast but be ready to spend money! $55 for an hour lane rental and then $3.00 per shoes. We played dome shuffle board and ping pong which was also pro rated on the $55 hourly rate.
It’s a fun place for sure and we enjoyed the good and drink selection. Just pricey
Nice atmosphere, great food and drinks. Ran out the 10pin tini but was able to accomadate my request. Great outing as a couple or group. Pricing is reasonable
Great service by waitress. Bowling equipment faulty on scoring and attendant at front didn’t know how to use system. Lost two games because of them resetting scoring.
Service was very slow.
Food was very average. Vintage bowling with no bumpers for kids unless you prebook one of the few lanes with bumpers.
It was fun!
Service has gone down hill, prices have skyrocketed, our group of 6 had to change lanes not once but twice because they malfunctioned and all of the video screens had the same boring sports station. I have been going to 10pin for over 15 years and find it is not the fun, affordable place it used to be.
We reserved 2 lanes for 2 hours for my son's birthday celebration. Everything started off really nice. We were greeted nicely at the front desk. Our server came over immediately and introduced herself. The kids played a few rounds of ping pong while we waited on the rest of our party to arrive and then it started. The lanes that they originally told us that we had, were not ours and we had to move over 2 lanes. No big deal because again we were still waiting on a few people. Once our guest arrived and we started playing, our server was great. She got our orders, they brought out our food and drinks but as the time went on, it became harder and harder to find her. We had to go to the other side where the bar is located to get our server. Half way through the game, both of the lanes started stalling and would not reset all while our time was running down. I had to go to the desk at least 8 times. After about the 9th time, they moved us to 2 different lanes next to where we were playing but then those started stalling and would not reset which had me back up at the desk another 2-3 times. At this point, the guest were frustrated and no one really wanted to play anymore. The momentum of the games was gone and the guest started venturing off which left my son and a few friends that were left to just play off whatever time was left. On a positive note, the food was really good (chicken and steak quesadillas) and the drinks from the bar were great (I needed one after this ordeal). At the end of it all, the only thing we received was a FULL bill ($400), no apology and 20 minutes added back to the bowling time which no one wanted to play at that point.
The scoring and computer system on the lane we were assigned malfunctioned. Not once or twice. Three times I had to go to the counter and ask the employee to reset the system. Each time I was told “that should do it”. Each time it didn’t.
I feel like this bowling alley is wildly expensive for no reason. $55/hr for a lane or $9/game.... plus shoes. Our lane was tweaking for about 8 minutes, and they did not add any time back on our game.
Fun date night wouldn’t have hurt by having a warmer welcome and friendly staff that didn’t assume we’re going to cheat the waitress on tip.
Waitress lady was unkind and have an attitude. Very demanding and looked not want to serve at all!!! Hope she is not gonna be there next time when we visit. The place is awesome.
First and foremost..the service was awful. The only nice and helpful person was the gal at the check in desk. Very sweet.
Bartender was lazy and on her phone most of the time. The waitress never came to our table. The nachos tasted suspect, so I stopped eating them. We got one game free as I was staying next door, played one more game and each had one drink. $62.00
what a rip.
I would never go back. The location is decent and is the only reason I went. The bowling lanes are terrible. The lanes have No oil and not level. Shoes are also old and do not slide. Its like bowling bare feet. The balls are ok and nicely differentiated by weight. The score keeping system is a joke. The sound system needs to be modernized. The only nice feature is the big screen TV's above the pins. But I came to bowl and not watch music videos. Carpeting is old and dirty. I don't know who designed this place but it really is a joke. Plus it is expensive: $10 per game for what?
Everyone there is so polite, Friends me had a great time !
The bowling just didn’t work, we had to get help about ten times. The pins weren’t being reset, the balls weren’t coming back through the belt, the scores were just wrong. It was WAY over priced. The food was fine, but pizza was just not good and not worth the cost. For two games with two people and a pizza it was 80 dollars. We were there less than an hour.
It was great my family loved it evrythi8was clean and everyone was friendly
This was our first time in Chicago and we decided to go because we got in late. We had an amazing time, it was fun, an adult atmosphere and the food was amazing!
Really great time with a party of 10 people. Great upscale bowling, delicious food and friendly, attentive service. And the Sangria and Rose cans were fantastic! We’ll be back!!
Went bowling with a few friends to celebrate my birthday and it’s a cool spot in terms of appearance and the activities offered. That said, the drinks were terrible and the service almost nonexistent. When our server did come to our lane, she forgot portions of our order. It took 30 min to get a beer. The music was outdated and the manager was unwilling to play anything more current than 1980. The place has potential but clearly needs a lot of work and staff training.
There seems to be a disconnect with the front desk staff availability information than what’s stated on open table. The front desk told me they had no availability, but checked open table and there was immediate availability. I booked through open table and was seated and given a lane. Interesting disconnect!
I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE. This place is seriously overrated. The food was average in comparison to most bowling alleys. This entire facility needs a serious makeover from its boring, one-channel sports screens to its seriously outdated scorekeeping machines. We had to request the fans be turned on (should have been on already) after we began sweating profusely when we started our bowling session. The decorative lighting made the place feel dingy and to underscore my point, OUTDATED. I wouldn't trash this place completely, I'd just look for more appealing and better managed facilities first. On a scale from 1 to 5 (5 being best), this place rates a 2.
We had fun. Our lane had technical issues but it’s a really nice place & the food was ok.
Server kept forgetting items, portions of the order came WAY late
Father’s Day. Had a great time bowling and snacking.
I took my students there on a field trip. Everyone was nice. We did not get our socks and the time on the lane began about five minutes too early so while the kids were getting their shoes on and their names in our time was ticking away; otherwise, it was a nice experience.
Everything seemed fine until the bill came - they charged me for 3 hours of bowling when I was there for 2 and they also charged me for 9 pairs of shoes when I was with a group of 7. We had to correct the bill 3x. After the second correction we sorta got the hint that it wasn’t an honest mistake but rather intentional and who knows how many people simply pay without double checking.... they also said I did not show up for my reservation...combined with the bill issues they just give a scammy vibe.
Muy buen lugar para pasar en familia o con amigos. Muy buena atención.
Good time, good value.
Our experience was great our service Cassie was very attentive to our table
Family trip trying to do something different.. it was worth it!
