We had a wonderful experience here! Michael, the owner, who personally mans the pro bowling store, was extremely helpful and a lovely person. He helped us pick bowling balls that would be appropriate to our beginner level now and also

I used to bowl at Homefield on Sunday mornings with a friend. I found the staff at the front desk to be rude and uncaring. One evening, about 11:30 p.m., I stopped by to bowl the special ($15.00 for one hour). I asked for a pair of lanes in the corner and was told by the guy at the desk that they were reserved to a large group. What large group? "Well, they haven't come in just yet, but if a large group comes in, we will give them the lanes." I complained to the owner, Dave Limekiller, who promptly dismissed me. Also, they don't take credit or debit cards and they don't tell you that until you go up to the desk to pay for your games. They don't care about the open bowler, only they league bowler. They have a parking lot, but it's totally inadequate to handle all the leagues they have. And for what it's worth, the only reason that Homefield is doing the business that it's doing is because Yonkers Bowl on Central Avenue closed a few years back and Dave Limekiller got all the leagues from there. Otherwise, zilch! Also, they have a group of teens who hang there and are very nasty. My advice. Stay away from Homefield. Go somewhere where they care about the average open bowler!

I would never return to this establishment. After reading the reviews I thought it was the perfect place to take my son (3/17/09.) First we were told we could only play for half hour (no reason given.) It was repeated so many times that I felt this woman just wanted us to leave. Well, I promised my 5 year old bowling and we were going to bowl. Let me add after waiting on line all 3 women disappeared to the back and left me standing there. About 5 minutes later one of the women returned. Looked at me for a few seconds then turned around. Then looked at me again and finally asked if I was being helped. Although I made it clear I was clueless how to even set up to begin playing no one offered to help us. It was the kids next to us who set us up after they saw I was having a problem. After playing one game of ten frames I told my son it was time to go. Well, he throws another bowl starting a new game. You would think I would be charged for 11 frames as in other establishments. Nope. I WAS CHARGED FOR THE FULL TEN FRAMES. I paid for borders and they weren't put up until we were already in our 8th frame and this was after I went back to the counter. No apologies. No nothing. What lane are you at? Okay. Just go back. (DISMISSIVE AND HOW DARE I BOTHER THEM!) I was dying to get out of there, but now my son is screaming for a soda. Begrudingly I go to the concession stand and we wait, wait, wait. Well, no one ever came to serve us or at a minimum tell us they were closed. Why? Because they were too busy chatting up a storm at the end of the counter. Staff being friendly? Well, those people must have quit or been fired. Friendly and nice they were not. Dismissive and rude is more like it. I actually emailed them regarding how I was over charged (charged for two whole games/20 frames!) I paid for borders that weren't put up until the 8th frame. There response? Nothing. Enough said and I will continue posting my experience on every site that I find regarding this place. Bottom line is from my observation if you are not a part of this place little inner circle click you will be treated as my family and I were. It's absolutely disheartening this place has yet to respond to my email. Do not believe any of the other reviews. They are old or the person obviously must be part of that in-house click.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Everything

The staff was very friendly. Even the owner took time to help me with my bowling. Place was clean and inviting. A great place for kids and adults. I even joined their Sunday Early league.

My family occasionally goes to Homefield bowl to bowl, and I have always had a nice experience. It is a small facility, so there is not as much chaos as some of the alleys have, andt he staff is always friendly and helpful. Their prices are reasonable, and parking is adequate. Their birthday parties are very nicely done as well. I would recommend this bowling alley.
