I was a bit unhappy about joining in on a bowling banquet a friend had at Doyle's last night. I was quite surprise when I walked in. An older bar was transformed into a perfect bowling banquet setting. Not so fancy that you felt you were under dressed yet a clean elegant way about it. Professional staff and amazing food! I don't think I have had Chicken Marsala taste like this and the White Chicken Lasagna was melt in your mouth. It didn't stop there as they cleaned up our plates quickly they brought out a setting of at least 5-6 different desserts to choose from. Impressive was I believe they were all homemade. Everything that night was from scratch. YUMMY! I checked out their menu and realized they have 2 separate ones. I full menu from burgers (including a veggie) & fries, Philly Cheesesteak to Salads & Turkey Wraps. Now take a look at their catering menu and it's Homestyle, Italian & Taco Buffets to fancy plated meals. I can say $14 for the food I feasted on was well worth it and even under priced. Now I probably will only visit this place a few times a year because of traveling but I can only picture my next MD fundraiser or banquet I hold will be there!

I am wondering if BOWLINGGUY91 was at the same tournament we were at because some guy was complaining the same way when his child lost! This place is to rate it how it really is not to be angry at them because your child didn't win. I personally don't visit Doyle's more than 5-8 times a year. Mainly because of location from where I live. It is in need of some updates but the staff is great and very helpful. We always have a good time while there. The lanes are not that bad!

Pros: great service, nice people, not flashy & hard on the eyes

Cons: in need of some updates

We bought Doyle's restaurants girt certificate on KS95 a few months back. Just used it tonight. I have to say I was impressed with how genuinely nice the workers were. To me, my husband and pesky children! My husband ordered a pizza & buffalo drummies, I ordered a California cheeseburger basket and our children ordered kid meals. One corn dogs and one mac & cheese. She instantly brought my kids crayons and a couple of toys to play with. There are magazines and doyle's history up on the way to look at. But my children thought looking out the window to the bowling was fun. The food was surprisingly AMAZING! Best burger I have had and the pizza came close to best! She made us feel like we were the only people there and that's what is missing in places today. Can't wait to go back to bowl and eat there next weekend!

I just bowled there for a tournoment and i have to say it was the worst bowling alley I had ever been to. Half of the lanes are synthetic and the other half is wood. I believe that this one of the dumbest ideas for a bowling alley I have ever seen.I would reccomend to the owners to shut this place down and cut their loses. i believe that it should be condemed. I DO NOT RECCOMEND THAT ANYONE EVER BOWL THERE AGAIN!!.

I like this place. We stopped here once to bowl just because we didn't know what to do on Friday night. About half the lanes were taken and it was half full in the bar where there was karaoke going on. Drinks were a good pour and we had a nice relaxing kick back time. This actually pulled us back they next weekend but this time it was calm on the lanes and a surprisingly really good band (but packed) in the bar. Don't know the name of them but I was told it they were basically the "home" band. The food we've only had once just because I just had surgery but the pizza we had was superb. Never knew this placed existed but glad we found it. I think we will go back often for their entertainment. We have now seen 2 different bands there. Very entertaining and no cover charge! Only downfall is the bartendars get so busy it takes time to get your next drink but all staff really tries to please and friendly. Wish the bar was a bigger, too.

Cons: Older building, smaller bar

From the outside you would be convinced that maybe it needs some major updates. But once inside you can tell you will feel at home and relaxed. The prices on everything from shoes, bowling, and drinks to food are very reasonable. Much lower compared to these fast paced neon lights chain bowling alleys. I really thought my 6 years olds birthday party went smooth, the kids had a blast, and it was cheaper than Chuck E Cheese! The lady at the counter did everything to make sure we were happy (we had bumpers and a rail) and she entered in all the girls names. The lady in the cafe talked to all the girls about school and even sang Hanna Montana songs with them until I was ready for the cake and ice cream to start. They have many leagues to choose from and most look like they are having a great time. My husband and I are on the Wednesday night. He won't leave without getting a burger! He says it's the best he's had. I actually love to try the special for the dinners. If you stop in you must try their pizzas, burgers, turkey club wrap, and don't forget the chicken wild rice soup. Happy Bowling!

Although I wish they would update the machines and I bit of their look. I love the staff. Rita and Jackie Rock! Drinks Drinks Drinks! Are not only really cheap but they pour a good one!!! They make a great burger there, too. Only downfall is I think they close most of the summer. Either way you'd never be disappointed there.

Cons: Clean but a bit run down (old) looking

My family has been going to Doyles for years and the prices are great and atmosphere is relaxed. Yes, it may need some updating, but it is clean, customer service is great, and people are Minnesota nice. Reminds me of a good family business. When customer satisfaction still meant something, Doyles still has that! We order from the cafe there everytime we go "Down in the Alley" and the food had always been great and the service has always been very timely and very friendly. The new owners have really improved that cafe. Their peanut butter cookies are addicting.

Doyles Bowling and Lounge is a fun place to place a good game of bowling. The staff is friendly and willing to help. I believe the price is good when compared to the larger chains. It was worth the cost the time I was there.

Average bowling at best - in my option the lanes are not maintained very well. The pattern of oil does not provide a nice shot (if you throw with a hook) - very dry in the middle and wet on the outside. They don't seem to want any feedback from their customers either with responses like "Deal with it". I have also received more nicks in my bowling ball in just a few weeks at Doyle's then years bowling at multiple other bowling alleys.
I guess I am going to take their advice and deal with it by finding a different place to bowl.
