We had never been here but took grandkids on a hot day. There did seem to be a lack of the lightest weight bowling balls and it was not busy at all so that was disappointing. The facility was very clean and we would probably try again with just adults.

Great place for work parties. Rocky is the bomb. The food and the bowling alley is top notch. Love the adult bar restaurant, C.J.'s in the back.

My wife's 35 year class reunion mixer was held at Mel's last weekend. This is a great venue. Very clean and affordable. We shared a sandwich and it was excellent. All shoes were all like new, the lanes were in great shape.

We went to Mel's on a hot afternoon to entertain the kids and get out of the heat. We were pleasantly surprised to find that Mel's allows kids two free games each week during the summer. We just paid for shoes and snacks. The bowling alley was in very good condition and bumpers and scoring all worked perfectly. My kids... More

Mel's is always fun! Bowling is fun for families or a group of friends, the food is good, and it's a fun time. There are various specials that Mel's runs during the week and summer....Teen Night, Ladies Night, $5 All You Can Bowl...so if you go at one of these times, it's budget friendly. There's also an arcade area, but... More

We went with another couple, it was $44 for one hour of bowling. That included shoes for 4 people. We were trying to get in 2 games ,but the machine kept stopping. That was our only complaint.

I've just recently visited this place for a youth tournament and was very impressed with the floor plan. I would love to come back to these lanes.

This is a very nice bowling alley. The computers have several different scoring graphics and the possibility of emails your stats. No smoking and no vapes. What a great environment. Staff was friendly and helpful. Fun time.
