Bad service and horribly run down. I went to this place with 1 other adult and 7 kids ages 2 - 9. To make a long story short, service was atrocious from the start. We bowled one frame on two lanes and the machines went crazy on us. For 30 mins we went back and forth with the people at the desk to help us. They could not get the lanes to register when a bowler knocked pins. We finally gave up as the kids were fed up and we wanted our $ back. We were frustrated but things don't always work out as planned. Then this crazy dude started telling us that not only would we not get a refund, but we owed him for 2 1/2 games for all 9 people!!! We were only there for 45 mins according to the computer ( 30 mins dealing with problems and 15 mins to put on shoes and bowl 1 frame). He started lecturing us that we are out to get something for nothing. It escalated into a screaming match. The girl that set up the game and who was trying to help us for the 30 mins knew there was no possible way we bowled anywhere close to a game just based on the timing but refused to say it since she clearly needed her job. The manager refused to come out and talk with us despite multiple requests. Finally, when we got on the phone to call the credit card company to dispute the charge, they finally refunded our shoe money. We didn't pay them a cent and I never will. Worst service EVER.

We have gone bowling at Hanover Lanes many times simply because of its convenient location. We usually do not find it crowded and can take our time. Having the gutter guards on the lanes certainly makes it more fun for the kids. We have never eaten there as the little snack bar never looked appealing.

East Hanover Lanes is the only bowling alley I go to. It is wonderful. The prices are very reasonable. If you go at a good time, it will not be very busy, and you won't have to wait very long. Don't go to any other bowling alley, come to this one, because it is the best!

This bowling alley is not new, modern, and high tech, but it is a great throwback. The environment is awesome.

The prices are reasonable and the snacks are great.

I always have fun whenever I'm there.

I have been bowling here for years - it's an older alley, but it still does fun things like bumper bowling and laser light bowling.

The clientele is mostly locals.

There are many options if you're interested in a league - individual, team, family, children, etc.

The snack bar is good and reasonably priced - mostly fried foods and chips.

The bowling prices are average -shoe rental cost is pretty low. $3, I think.

PROS: reasonable prices, good food selection
CONS: older facilities
