This is where I played in my first ever league, so it holds some sentimental value for me. My kids were in a league here too, and they enjoyed it. Even had some work related parties and gatherings that were held here and we had fun.

However, it does tend to be more expensive than other places in town. Cosmic Bowling is a blast, but is too expensive for a family night. We are a family of six and $13/each for a total of $78 for only 2 hours (and we haven't even gotten any concessions yet) makes this a rare option for us, maybe once or twice a year.

The lanes are immaculate! Between Sport Bowl and Empire Bowl, the synthetic lanes in both places are great and put Eastway and Suburban's lanes to shame!

Although Eastway recently went through a remodel, I think Empire is still a bit nicer. This may be the most aesthetically pleasing center in town. It is clean, spacious and seems to be the most "modern".

The pro shop is excellent, having a great inventory and friendly staff.

Food is good, but I prefer the kitchens at Eastway and Sport Bowl over this one.

Customer service here is decent, but not great. Michelle is the manager I got to meet, and she was outstanding. The rest of the staff in my experience is dependent on who's on duty. Sometimes a bit moody and inconsistent.

Wish there'd be a 3.5, because my experience is that Sport Bowl is better but to go from 4 as Very Good to 3 as Satisfactory is not fair.

its obvious the guy/girl who wrote the first review works for empire bowl. I regularly go to each and every bowling alley in town and empire bowl is, by far, the most unfriendly and expensive alley in town. I would not recommend this alley to anyone.

I went to Empire one night because the bowling alley I usually go to was already filled up. My group was treated very rudely by the staff and I found their prices to be quite high compared to the other centers in town. I really felt that as long as they were making their profit they could have cared less about the customer and providing good customer service. The cosmic bowling was kind of fun, but not enough to pay more for. I would definately not recommend this center to anyone that I know.

Empire Bowl is the most popular bowling alley in town as well as the nicest. It is kept up very nicely and the service is good. On the weekend they have a fun bowling atmosphere -- it is called cosmic bowling -- the music is very loud, lots of people are there, and black lights on. It's fun and not many other places offer this. It is very busy on the weekends so get in there early!
