Shelby Bowl is small, yes, but that does not take away from the good qualities they have. People say it's out dated or old looking but i feel its vintage. They have the lowest prices in town and in this economy, I'm always up for saving a few bucks! The family that own/operate it are good people. Very helpful! It's a laid back environment, but at the same time, they don't let any stupid stuff happen. They have been there for like 40 some odd years so they must be doin somethin right. People need support. Especially now more than ever! Just remember, not all first impressions are correct!

Very shabby, small and outdated with really rude employees. Will not ever go to this bowling alley again! We had a very bad experience!! When we first arrived my husband who rarely drinks and my brother-in-law ordered a pitcher of beer. The employee says he will not serve them anymore after that one pitcher because they were drunk or messed up on something. Then I go up there to get me a drink and he says he cannot serve me because I am with them and I might give my drink to them. This is crazy we did not have a drop to drink before going there and we are adults who can do what we want. Then about 30 minutes later I go to the bathroom and the owner has one of his employees follow me in there. I put on my makeup and come out and the owner is telling my husband we have to leave because I was sneaking alcohol in the bathroom. If I was going to do that I would not have been been trying to buy a drink. That is absurd and I cannot believe they would act like that. They had a problem with us for some reason from the minute we walked in the door. Would not recommend to anyone!! You would be better off going to Expo Bowl or Beech Grove Bowl.

I will never go here again and I would recommend anyone who thinks about going there to not. its a shabby old bowling alley with half the lanes not working and people hasseling you for no reason.

Shelby bowl is a small lane but it has a family feel to it. The owner and his son and other employees are very nice and accommodating. The prices are really reasonable and the concession area is clean and cool. Everyone should check this bowling alley out.

Shelby bowl is easy to get to. I had leagues and we had a lot of fun doing them. It is alittle crazy but everyone is nice. You have to rent bowling shoes if you don't have any on you. They meet all you expectations.
