BEWARE the snack bar staff do not follow proper food handling safety. There were two ladies in the snack bar area. One lady took my order and my money then walked right over to the freezer and picked up my food without washing her hands! I observed the other lady do the same thing on a hot dog order touching money then hotdogs and the buns! I politely brought it to the attention of the older lady who appeared to have some level of authority and she told me that was OK because the food was going to be cooked!!!! I then politely mentioned that I am trained in food safety because I own a concession stand and I always wash my hands after touching money as the PA health code requires or I use gloves. She literately turned her back to me loosely agreeing that maybe I was right. Look anyone can make a mistake but when you justify it as OK so long as the food is to be cooked then that is the regular practice there! Now one has to ponder how the food is kept and handled when no one is looking. I reminded her that people that have health issues including the very young and the elderly can actually die from a food born illness, she all but rolled her eyes at what she clearly perceived as just a picky customer. Shame on these poorly educated adults that don't think washing hands is a basic common sense rule in serving food. On top of all that when I called to book the lane I asked for the price to bowl and was quoted the full amount even though after I visited there website there was a regularly offered special where you get a lane for up to 6 people including shoes for 29.95 I would have spent close to 50.00 had I not checked there website! All of this is a shame because otherwise it is a great little bowling alley and is otherwise well cared for. However based on the fact that no outside food or drink is allowed and the snack bar staff risk making people seriously ill or even possible death I would be unable to take my children of family elders there to bowl. I sincerely hope this review forces this potentially nice bowling alley to invest in some plastic gloves and some food safety training for its staff along with enforcement of basic food safety rules/law. I will also report them to the Health Department but I have little faith that they will do much. Consumers need to speak up a demand that there food is handled properly.

We go here often with the kids. It is always clean, nice, affordable and just a nice place. I never had any problems. They have the glow bowl and such. A snack bar and a bar in a separate room (which is nice that they did it this way).

East Lincoln Lanes is your typical bowling alley, not a lot of frills but still a good place for a fun time. They offer special deals on New Years Eve.
