2013 BEST Bowling Alley

Lanes & Games

People outside of New England might not agree, but to be taken seriously around here, alleys have to offer both 10-pin bowling (big ball, finger holes) and candlepin bowling (small ball, no holes). Lanes & Games gets it right by providing a full floor of each, along with a bar that serves cheap eats and beer. No one will blame you for quoting The Big Lebowski at length.

    $5.25 per game per person for candlepin?!? Thats insane. I’ll stick to the Wakefield Bowlodrome at $18/hr per lane.

      So you don’t drink a few beers and have some fun with your friends while bowling? Or like to finish strings?
