Sports Haven, in my opinion, is one of the best places around to go bowling. While the general atmosphere of the place is more retro than most places nowadays, they have managed to keep up with the times while keeping prices affordable. They keep the lanes in great condition, oiling them at least once or twice a day - more if several leagues are running that day. The food they serve is great as well - they have a large variety of local favorites, and not just the standard fare. Sure, they have pizza and French fries; but they also have sausage, Philly Cheese steak sandwiches, eggs, chicken, and a vast array of beverages. Even the food is moderately priced as well.

The biggest downside that Sports Haven has is its size. They only have 14 lanes, so if you show up during Cosmic Bowling hours, or just any busy time, you're likely to be made to wait for a little while. The bowling is well worth the wait though. Also, due to their size, they don't have very much parking.

Pros: Good prices, a variety of food and drink, great lane conditions

Cons: Waiting times, not a whole lot of parking due to the size of the place.

Sports Haven is probably the cheapest place in the area to bowl, with games usually costing $1-2, and shoe rental is free. However, this is about the only thing that makes this alley worth going to. The balls and pins are old, the lanes are not well-oiled and are often crowded with leagues, and the hours are unpredictable. There is a small bar in the back that will serve you most normal drinks at a good price, just don't expect anything too fancy. They also have a pro-shop which is run by people that actually know their stuff, and can outfit you pretty well, again at a reasonable price. If you're looking for some cheap bowling fun, this is the place. If you're a serious bowler who wants immaculate lanes, crisp pins and an ideal setting to practice, stay away.

PROS: inexpensive, very good pro-shop
CONS: old equipment, odd hours, crowded
