what a great time my family and i had at this bowling center! we came in for the first time and was immediately spoken to welcome us. the lady at the counter seemed to go out of her way to be most helpful explaining every thing to us. my husband and i were feeling like we had known her forever. then another lady came and put us on a lane. i found out from the 2nd lady that the owner was the one we spoke to 1st. wow! most owners do not go out of their way like she did! she later came to us and explained the menu for food to us. we do not eat meat and they had salads and other items for us to choose from! the food was so good. this is an older bowling center but the lanes looked new. the owner told us about a club and dj and thats all good but we do not go to clubs. but we do drink and she went into the club and got us a drink that we ordered. i have never felt so pampered and waited on . it was a very nice experience. everyone should go there and feel the warmth and kindness that this place has. may alla always be with you.

We were desperately looking for a bowling place on Dec 25 and were very pleased to find Glenwood Lanes was open. We got there around 4pm and had the whole place to ourselves. The owners were very friendly and patient when my guests from Europe had no idea what american shoe size they needed. The prices were very affordable, we paid $2.00 per game/person till 6pm and the shoe rentals were $2.50/person. If you plan on paying with a credit card (Visa or Mastercard only) make sure to have a driver's licence handy.
The place is 50 years old and has the charm associated with it; the comfort of an old pair of sneakers that the newer and more modern places cannot compete with!

Glenwood Lanes renewed our dwindling love for the game.

After a drastic price increase at our favorite lanes, my family and I were in search of an affordable facility to spend the early hours of Sunday morning. We called at 7:48 am and were as delighted as we were surprised to reach a live person. We were told that the lanes open at 9:00 am and games before noon were only 95 cents. Even if we didn?t make it before noon, the games were only $1.50 and just another $2.50 for shoes. This price is less than half of what we paid the day before at a supposedly ?fun center? that had underwent yet another price increase.

From beginning to end, we enjoyed a day of family fun. Though an older center, Glenwood left nothing to be desired. The gentleman at the front counter was not only polite and knowledgeable, but also thoughtful and helpful. He provided change for a large bill and a receipt upon request. We were placed on a lane where we had adequate room to move around and the shoes we rented were comfortable and in good condition.

My favorite provision at Glenwood Lanes was the BowlingBalls. They provided BowlingBalls in a variety of weights, including a 6lb ball with fingerholes large enough for an adult.

Though we didn?t order food, we visited the concession stand and reviewed the menu. The workers at the concession stand were friendly and helpful, directing us to their full menu, as we had only been looking at the express menu. We did, however, partake of snacks from the vending machines where I found a rare treat, RC Cola.

Upon completing our games, we returned our shoes to find that there was one more gift in store for us ? printed scores. The gentleman at the counter gave us a printout on how we faired for all three of the games we played, with totals.

In conclusion, a family of three can enjoy three games of bowling fun and snacks in a relaxed atmosphere that encourages you to return again and again.
