I haven't been to Gil Hodges in over 15 years. I went this evening with a date I brought to a nearby restaurant prior. Hence, we left IMMEDIATELY-

To start with, the greeter has half her boobs hanging out, then your searched and gotta walk through a metal detector!!! Then the place is filthy, ppl are hanging out at the counter talking trash and sounding like they never had a day of education.

Furthermore, I walk my date to the bathroom and it is disgusting and unkept, I didnt even want to leave her side. We felt VERY unsafe and the gangbangers walking about did not help.
I cant believe how bad it has become, I remember going there as a kid 15-20 years ago and loving it, and feeling welcome and noticing how clean it is! I guess the neighborhood is changing...first Canarsie turns to crap and now this.

A great place to have a good night out with friends. Kid-friendly, as well, so it's a fun place for the entire family. It's a lot different than it used to be, but still a great bowling alley, and one of few in the area.

I liked how it was before the renovations. Now I think it is too small. It used to be a lot bigger when there were two sides, which meant less wait time, less crowd and everything else that goes along with space. nevertheless it's still good times trying to bowl.

Run-down and depressing. Expensive ($4.50 to rent shoes, for starters). Poor selection of houseballs, almost all in poor condition. Lousy food. Had to go through a metal detector on a Saturday night.

Pros: Not too many places to bowl anymore in NYC

Cons: Run-down, expensive, out-of-the-way location

Been bowling for over 25 years, and this center is a disgrace! Constant breakdowns, filthy restrooms, ceiling tiles missing/stained & broken. What happened to the cool 68 lane center that opened in the 1980's? Since it was downsized, it just hasn't been maintained. It really appears that it won't be long for this earth! It seems as if the owners are milking it to squeeze every last dollar out, and then they'll abandon it to some retailer, just like the other 100+ lanes they've taken out of Brooklyn in the past. What a shame! The ONLY good thing is the snack bar. It seems out of place, as it is clean, run well, and the food is quite good.

The service at Gil Hodeges is about the same as any check cashing center on payday, you wait a long time for a rude employee who acts as if they are doing you a favor performing their duties.

Pros: Some of the workers are really nice!

Cons: there are not enough of the nice ones to compansate for the bad ones.

I've been bowling here since I was young. It was so much fun. They have many great leagues. They have great food. The price is very good. It is a great place and a lot of fun.

I recently had my daughter's birthday party there and it was terrible!! i would not recommed having a party there! when i booked the party 2 months ago, I was shown room as to where the 2nd half of the party would be ( the 1st is an hour of bowling). it was a nice room. On the day of my party I get there and I'm brought to this totally different room that was the size of a bathroom and had water damage all over the ceiling and it happen to be next to the bathrooms so it smelt! i was never shown this room before nor was i even told about it! when I asked what happen to the other room , I was then told that they also had another party the same time as mine and that party had more people then mine . ( by the way, i was told when i booked the party that they have 1 party at a time one every hour!) We could not even fit all the kids in the room, I asked for the manager who suggested that i have my party in the "hallway", I asked if i get money off if I have it in the "hallway hence, I was paying for a private room. the manager was horrible he offered no solution, I would have walked out except for all my child friends and parents already there. of course we did not fit in 4x4 room that i was given so we were piling put of the room with the food and cake and candy. i had kids who were hanging out at the bowling alley not with my party trying to steal slices of pizza ans cake. I tell manager, whose response was there was nothing he could do about it! you are better off having your party at burger king or mcdonalds!! I would not suggest gil hodged lanes for a birthday party!!! the service is terrible.

Pros: none what so ever!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cons: what a terrible way to run a business!

This is a huge bowling alley with all the latest in modern techniques. They have an automatic scoring device setup, with names and scores appearing above the alley on a screen. They cater to families with children as well as adults, and have a special area for birthday parties in a separate room.

They have a snack bar, a set up to cater food to a kids party, many arcade machines, shoe rental, lockers and more. It is a fun place for kids and for adults. I recently attended a birthday party there and there were several people assigned just to the party, taking food orders, bringing food, and doing all they can to make it a great party! They are a very big bowling alley and can accommodate many people at once. They also have an adjacent parking area.

PROS: A great place for families
CONS: A child could get lost in there its so big

I love to bowl on a casual basis and I always go to Gil Hodges. They have a nice setup and their facility is upkept all the time. It's usually very clean and in the summers, they keep the indoor temperature very comfortable (some places it gets too hot inside). they have very good rates but it can get busy at weekends, especially in the winter. You can also purchase drinks and snacks and you can also rent shoes. Good place for a date or with the family.

I have been bowling here since I was young, and the alley still seems new. The alley is well kept and a fun place to play. However, location can be an issue as Mill Basin isn't really close to anything. But it is easily the best bowling alley in all of the Borough of Brooklyn

PROS: Well Kept, option of paying per game or hour rentals
CONS: in mill basin

I'm a big fan of bowling. I go here quite often. They have many different features such as glow in the dark bowling. They have a place for food although it is sort of expensive. They have leagues also for different age groups. My friends sister is in one of them. Great for birthday parties. Although it is sort of old and one time the ceiling fell on my friends head. He is alright though. Great place, very clean compared to other places I've been to.

If you enjoy bowling at an alley with millions of screaming children that run in front of you as you prepare to bowl then this place is for you. If you enjoy people on both sides of you with absolutely no idea about the rules of courtesy in bowling then hurry on down to Gil Hodges Lanes. There was a time when this was a great bowling alley. That time I'm afraid has passed. They just fixed everything up and it is now a modern facility in every way. Too bad they couldn't replace the screaming, mindless customers as well.
