We just had my son's party at Heids Lanes today and I have to say, it was fantastic! Yes, the place does need some updating (the owner said that they were doing that this summer- new lanes, couches, etc), but it was clean and well kept up. For us, the party went like this: we got there and everything was set up in the back room, balloons, the pin for the kids to sign (they've been doing this for years) and the tables were set. By set, I mean that the tables all were covered (not just the table where we would eat cake, but the the gift table and the table for pizza and cake) and each chair had a place setting. The plates weren't some chintzy ones, but ones with balloons on them. Now this might seem like a small thing, but for $10 per bowler I expected to not have to bring my own plates. The pizza was delivered by Marco's about 5 min before the party started (I had requested to do it like this as it was around lunch time- you can request for them to order it at any time)- it was still very hot to the touch when we walked in.
Like the previous poster said, you only pay for who actually attends. I would recommend this place for parties- in fact, one of the parents there went ahead and booked two parties for her sons because of how great our party went!
I had read a review on line about some chick getting upset about her party and not recommending the place. I spoke to someone who was there for that party and what I was told was that the chick never called back to confirm that she wanted that date (she had called to simply inquire) then flipped out when she and everyone else just showed up and things weren't set up, nor did she happen to mention that they gave her a HUGE discount- convenient, in my opinion if you're writing a critical review. The owners were able to pull together a great party despite only having 20 min.
Oh, and I forgot to bring candles- the owner told me that it wasn't a big deal, she keeps extras for just such an occasion!
The only reason that I gave 4 stars vs 5 was because the place does need to be updated- it's clear that the benches are older and do need to be replaced, but I don't want to give the impression that it wasn't clean- it was and I would love to have another party there in the future!

Having previously bowled at Heid's Lanes I was excited to take my daughter their for her first game of bowling.. I highly regret it. The place was very unorganized and a let down. We were told for 10 dollars we would get a pizza and a pitcher of pop what we weren't told was that the pizza would be a nasty, hard, small frozen pizza. If I wanted frozen pizza I could of stayed at home. Also on their website and over the phone I was told that Saturday was family day from 3-5pm and they stated it was Glow Bowl. There was never any glow bowl. While the staff was not rude they were unorganized and confused. It took us 20 minutes to pay for our bowling and food and we had to tell them about five times how much their prices were. My daughter enjoyed herself regardless but I will not go back their and do NOT recommend others to go. I give them 1 out of 5 stars.. this page would not let me chose one star it pick 5 stars for me.

Response from this business:

I apologize! I remember this exact event and it is not an excuse but our family was dealing with a family members death and beings that this is a family owned and operated business we were doing our best that day. I apologize that your experiences was not up to our best standards. We got to 5:00pm that day and realized that we didn't do the Glow Bowl. I wish someone that day would have said something to remind us. Again I apologize. As for the pizza, I have tried many brands and that is the brand the majority of our customers wanted. I will make sure that the website will state that it is Tombstone Pizza so the next customer will realize what they are getting. I do hope you give us a second chance because we take pride in being a Family Fun Place!

Hello Heids:

I think all of you are GREAT AND WONDERFUL PEOPLE. I remember Tina from High School and she is just as sweet, caring person as always as well as the rest of the staff. They help people out, know their job and do their best to make sure everyone has a great time, fun-filled memories and I really appreciate them helping my little boy Johnny Tanner. Johnny and I along with my husband Lee and step-son Chris and stepdaughter, Sonya and our friends has the best times there, plus it brings back great memories when I was a kid going there at 4 years old in the playroom with the other kids including Tina and seeing my mom bowl there with other friends moms and my neighbor Peggy who still watched kids there for years watched me too. Shows how generations bring great memories. Keep up the good work. Always feels great to go to Heids and now even with a new Cafe. We all bowled great games and Johnny got his first 116 in bumper bowl there at 4 yrs. old. on mothers day weekend. He turned 4 on April 3rd 2009. Johnny been bowling since 2 1/2 yrs. old. It's always fun and excitingat Heids. Great Job Tina and rest of the crew. Hats off to you All. See ya soon. JoAnn Tanner & Family

Response from this business:

Thank You! We have tried to make this bowling lanes the place everyone wants to bowl at. We are a very family-friendly place to be. Thanks for the compliment of the machines. We totally overhauled them this summer and it was a lot of work. Please come back soon!

we reserved a party there but when we got there they said we didnt have reservations.
the woman with a short boyish haircut in charge was rude and nasty.
after she argued with us they gave us a pair of lanes that were filthy and kept breaking down. the automatic scoring kept going off and wouldnt keep our score properly.
my children were very disapointed. when we ask to speak to the manager the boyish lady said she was the manager and if we didnt like it we could leave. i will never go back to that dirty filthy place again.

they are very good because they are very nice and help younger children. They also got new lanes and T.V.s. I think heid's is a great place to bowl! Heid's also just got new management and the new people in there are very kind to me and everyone else. The owner who is there every day helps the children bowl better.

Our family has enjoyed Heids Lanes for bumper bowling for the kids. It is a small bowling alley and is great for birthday parties. We have had two parties there and we have had consistent service for both of them. There is a party room that you can reserve and you are allowed to bring your own food and decorations. You must purchase your drinks through Heids which can be quite pricey. Overall this is a nice place for a kids birthday party.

Response from this business:

Thank You! We are so glad you made this posting. I am the new manager and after reading this posting I did check out our soda prices, compared them and lowered the pitcher price. I also, have my staff put a small amount of ice in the pitcher to get more bang for your buck.
