Write a Review
.

Began bowling very recently. We average 18 Series per week plus a League day. Yes, 54 plus games per week.

Eddie O. at the pro shop is a HUGE reason why me and my kids keep coming back. We started with bumpers and within 6 weeks, Me and my son have bowled a 210 and a 214 ..... lucky. Our averages are going up.
I maybe new to bowling but the attention Eddie has given us, as well as his professional advice, is worth overlooking a few of the issues this "House" has. Eddie is also wonderful while working with my 8 year old too.

We have joined a league and the people are ALL WONDERFUL. Terry the league Pres. is very encouraging and full of great advice.

Mario, at the front desk, has always been professional, helpful and courteous.

I cannot speak to the level of customer sevice in the bar, we never have used it.

The snack bar is small with a limited menu, what do you expect.....? It is also opened inconsistantly.

Yes, I find it too dark and the bathrooms ARE dirty.

Quite often, we have found little lane conditioner on the lanes. Could be our timing on when we go and bowl!?!?!?
The techs who work on the lanes seem to be knowledgeable but are limited to antiquated equipment. I.E. oil applicators that can't apply "Sport" oil patterns, ball returns that "hold" on to your ball, I have always gotten our balls back. Its just a little hassle to have someone retrive the ball.

Balls have stuck in the gutter, Eddie has us using our own bowling balls so it doesn't happen too often with us. I have noticed a lot of house balls do have chips in them, but what do you expect? We've never had ANY damage to any of our own equipment at this alley, EVER.

It also has a small arcade area . Its NO Chuck E cheese but then........

I would like to see the staff have a more appropriate "Professional" dress code like what Eddie wears as the House Pro and how Mario is always dressed for customer service.
This attention to detail may help with the atmosphere that people associate with a 1st rate Bowling House.

Poway Fun Bowl offers Fri. and Sat. nite Cosmic Bowling with a D.J. and black lights. The high school and college crowd will really enjoy these evenings.

Overall, I WOULD suggest this place! Give it a try! Its trying to survive during these hard economic times too. And, at the same time, make small improvements as well.

I'll give it a -4 Stars.

We thoroughly enjoy our Sunday morning fun bowling. It is quiet, clean and a great price at $2 a game if you start bowling before noon. We also have had a very good experience working with Eddie in the Pro Shop. Very helpful and knowledgable.

Horrible bowling alley ! ALL lanes are Dry! All house balls are chipped and get stuck in gutters. The bar is terrible ! Bartender is dumb ! She does not know how to calculate! Rude and horrible services! Unreasonable Charging at the Bar, Pool and Bowling Alley. Did not notify customers about the charging before playing.
Never go there again!!

I bowl at Poway Bowl in 2 leagues an have for 5 years. The owner has put alot of money into this place in the last 2 years,NEW SYNC. LANES, NEW AMF COLOR FLAT SCREENS, 9 LARGE FLAT LCD TVS,AND A NEW ARCADE WITH NEW CARPET THROUGHOUT THE CENTER. I have never had a problem with the personnel or the management staff. The lounge looks like it's being updated but as long as they have my beer cold when I bowl it works for me.I RECOMMEND Poway Fun Bowl to all bowlers who want a center to brag about.

.CHECK THE DATES ON THE REVIEWS
- 2005 , 2006 , 2007. THEY SOUND LIKE EMPLOYEES THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN FIRED.

I had a great time hosting my granddaughter's birthday party at the Poway Fun Bowl. All my guests enjoyed themselves, and my granddaughter has great memories to share with her friends for years to come. The place had something for everyone who brought their families, and everyone had an enjoyable experience.

Went with a big party and luckily the booz made it a little fun. there were two fights. a rowdy crowd not good for kids. There were also what appeared to be underage teenagers drinking in the parking lot. I wont go there anymore. Plus I seen the owner degrading his employee in front of the customers

This place is dirty. The bathrooms are super dirty. The owner has no customer service skills and doesnt care about your business. He wouldnt even give my 3 year old a balloon when she asked for one. I was shocked. I went to a bowling alley in mira mesa and the staff was friendly and the place was clean. Stay away from Poways old and outdated bowling alley.

The Guy over there made us wait for 30 min to get the alley when there was 16 empty lanes and then when we finally told them how come we are waiting and there is so many Lanes . they gave us lane that have so many people around us and there was no seats for us to set . any how i told the guy can we have a different lane and he said either this or take your money and get out .

it was not polite and embarrassing in front of our kids and their friends the way he was talking .
i know that we will never go back there again .
save your money and your respect and go some where else . they are trashy people that you do not want to go their level .

This place was so fun it had every thing I needed Bowling, pizza, full service bar and an arcade for my kids. I really enjoy going there now. I was able to book my party on line and set it up myself. It was hassle free, unlike other bowling alleys.

I have been there a few times and its just dirty, and not friendly people work there.

Plus, I drive past it many times and I have seen cops there multiple times. On friday night there were 3 cop cars and cops rushing into the place

I would not say this place is safe

This place is a relic of old Poway and should be plowed under for something new (a la Dad's Cafe). The facility is dirty and the staff unfriendly. Not a good place for kids.

I took two kids to bowl one game here and will NEVER go back. Our lane had one problem after another and when I told the owner he began scolding employees (who had diligently tried to fix the problem) and then told me "tough luck." Nice guy, has the PR skills of his bowling shoes.

Poway Fun Bowl has been undergoing renovations and is near completion. A new updated website is not the only new look at Poway Fun Bowl. We also have a new updated look inside and out. Check it out and see for your self.

Poway Fun Bowl is THE bowling alley in Poway; boasting the largest bowling alley in the immediate area. With 30 bowling lanes and up to date equipment, this bowling alley is a great place for beginners, league players, and bowling enthusiasts. If bowling isnt quite your style, they also have a bar, snack ball, and billiard tables where you can shoot a few rounds of billiards. Dont play billiards either? No problem! The Poway Fun Bowl bowling alley also boasts a laser tag room. Of course, there are extra charges for laser tag and billiards, but Poway Fun Bowl is a great place to spend the entire day.

every time i bowl at poway bowl something goes really wrong. My ball is lost in the system or it takes virtually an hour to fix a lane. If you only go bowling once a year poway would be okay i suppose but if you go any more often, go somewhere else.
