This review is based on the bar.
Girls night out we decided to meetup at Skyway Lanes. There's this cute bar inside, clean and with a nice scenery. The owners and staff were welcoming and friendly. Drink prices were inexpensive. Jean(bartender) was very accommodating and made good cocktails with a smile:) She was even open to new drink ideas. Live band (every 3 or 4 wk). Definitely worth the drive and returning. Thanks for the good experience.
I used to come here all the time with friends, and family to go bowling. Hours and hours of fun, and good cheers....then the Casino came in and brought a whole bunch of hot mess!! You have strange peeps hanging outside either exit bugging you...It's cool to have your gambling..Just have it in the back rooms like it used to be...There used to be two sides of lanes...Pretty rough crowds come in...I just dont feel safe anymore, and it used to be a fun safe area to come and go. The seats are all falling apart, and not in good shape anymore....Not alot for teens to do...need a community center where Albertsons, Skyway Market, Sars, My Elderado used to reside..Now its a vacant building...Next to that vacant building is Ezell's (the food sucks by the way, not the same when they first arrived in Skyway) and a barber shop on the upper floor...that area has really gone down hill... the only thing they got going is Basket Case that has been there forever...
I've been bowling at Skyway for about 4 years, and I must say if it were not for the location , I would go some where else. Lanes constantly break down. Furniture looks like crap compared to Brunswick and other alleys. No air. I would not recommend anyone to go here if you are a serious bowler. This alley would not rank in the top 100 . Only thing that is decent is the Pro Shop ran by Joe, who knows his equipment and can help you find that perfect ball and the bar. Drinks are reasonably priced. The employees help bring out the light in this outdated establishment. If they don't make any changes in the near future, I forsee the closing of an establishment that was once a great bowling alley back in the DAY . I had to vote a one because there are no zeros. F for lanes and furniture and the whole atmosphere, A for location and A for the employees. I feel the owner should be refered to as a SlumLord. He does not care about anyone or anything besides making money. And that is real talk. In conclusion find somewhere else to bowl, maybe when the money stop coming in he would make the proper changes.
I've notice over the years that Skyway makes the best place for bowling league's and family time.
