The center is a mostly smoking facility aside from a few hours on weekend day times.

Other than the issue of indoor smoking, the lanes are great, machines work very well and prices are reasonable.

I am a league bowler and go to Palace 3 or 4 times a week and I love the place. The air conditioner is amazing, even this summer when it was 100 degrees outside every day, inside Palace was cold!

During the daytime, Palace is a great place to come entertain the kids or practice your skill, if you are a serious bowler. There are leagues available every night of the week, so if you like to bowl leagues, this is the place for you.

The snack bar is top notch and has was awards for the awesome cheeseburgers. And the cocktail lounge carries a full line of beer, wine and mixed drinks. They also have big screen tvs for sports viewing, inside the bar and on the lanes.

This place delivers an all around great experience anytime you are looking to get your bowl on!

Went here for the first time a few months ago...nice facilities, bar area, spotless bathrooms. I too thought they violated the City of Houston smoking ban...but they are in fact in a small municipality called "Southside Place".

However, if you are anywhere that acutally is in the City of Houston, and that establishment violates the smoking ban...you can report any infractions you witness to the Smoking Ordinance Enforcement Program.

Best for casual nigh of beer and bowling with adult friends. If you bring the kids, do so early, and you won't need to be concerned about what the adults are doing (smoking).
Lanes are perfect, but the prices fair, and the service acceptable.

I had the misfortune of going to this place because of a birthday and could not believe my eyes. They allow smoking not just in the bar area (which is banned in Houston anyway), but by the lanes! I saw this great mother smoking and blowing smoke in her kids' face too. Why is this even allowed? the Address clearly states that this is in Houston.

Horrible horrible place for bowling also. The machine kept jamming up, the shoes were old and stinky, and did I mention it's hard to bowl when you're coughing?

Pros: Free lung cancer! get your lung cancer here!

Cons: very sad that they allow smoking next to kids

I've been bowling since I was about 12 and very few times can I remember not enjoying myself when checking out a new bowling alley. I read a review from someone else that mentioned the lane conditions were horrible, but I wanted to see for myself.

Well let me tell you that the only positive thing about bowling experience at Palace was the fact that I got to fellowship with my brother in Christ. If you are an intermediate bowler or higher I would not recommend this house. The lanes were absolutely deplorable. I am 6'0" 220 and fairly muscular and I left there feeling like i had a full fledge workout. I thought I was in the Sahara desert b/c those lanes were so dry.

They may dress the lanes up nice and pretty for their leagues but, if I can't enjoy myself during open bowling then, I'm not trying to gamble with joining a leagure here. The staff was nice and friendly, but from a bowler standpoint...I won't go back.

Pros: Friendly staff, family atmosphere, pretty clean

Cons: Pound for pound the worst lanes I've ever bowled on!!! :(

I really like taking my family down to Palace Lanes. It's a great atmosphere with a lot of lanes. I especially like how they keep the place clean and neat. They have a good food stand and the people that go there are nice and friendly. It's not expensive either, it's a great place for anyone, any age.

Palace Lanes is a wonderful place to take the family or to hang out with friends. You can't really find any good looking places to bowl in the city any more, but this place is great. It is modern and fun. You see all different kinds of crowds. The snack bar is nice as are the lanes.

Palace Lanes is down on Bellaire and has an interesting feel to it. It is very urban, so expect that kind of crowd. Otherwise, there are tons of lanes for classic bowling with normal amenities. There isn't anything really special except that this place is kind of a Houston landmark.

PROS: Many lanes
CONS: location

I watched my husband bowl mens state there and boy were the lanes flying. I know they use the house shot for the tournament and if that is the regular house shot I would never bowl league there! I also ask for some special pricing for a company party and no deal there.

What's the dealio with all these high marks for Palace Lanes?! Any half-decent bowler would know that these lanes are horrendous. It's the lanes I tell ya!! Yes, I'm the guy that gave Palace Lanes a 5 the first time around, but I thought I'd go back just to see if they had improved any, and they haven't! Absolutely no oil on the lanes and it was freezing in there! Only thing that made the experience enjoyable was hanging out with my bros. Heya Johnny boy! If you want to go to a good bowling alley in Houston, I suggest going to Alpha Lanes in Clear Lake. It's the only place in Houston that I've seen with decent lanes. Word to your motha.
