A lot of fun options for the family. Our family of adults (my parents and us "kids" and our spouses) went here and played pool, had drinks, and even thought about bowling (but wanted to head out to meet friends for dinner). A fun, clean atmosphere for adults OR kids!

My company took us here for an evening of bowling food and fellowship. There were at least 20 lanes + pool tables TVs and lots of places to lounge and visit if you didn't want to bowl.

Average bar food in a bowling alley across from a video arcade with an AMC multiscreen between. It's hard not to find something to like.

We stopped in for a late night snack before heading back to our hotel. The place has a nice look and atmosphere to it. We didn't bowl or play pool so I can't comment on those activities, just the food and service. First the food is, meh, depends on what you order I guess. I just had the spoon cake... More

We went to this place for the first time last weekend. Great surprise to find great food, a nice ambiance that allows for conversation without having to scream at each other and lots of options for entertaining. We will be coming back often!

Quick attentive service at the Lucky Strike. We were able to get a drink and good food before watching a movie at the AMC. Our entrees including a nice kale/beet/goat cheese salad with walnuts; a tasty spinach and artichoke flat bread, and yummy chicken bites with a tangy barbeque sauce. Extensive beer selection as well as cider.

The perfect saying for cheap stuff is "What you get is what you pay" but the kind of prices they charge for their food and service is way more for their cheap and horrible service. Even a cheap restaurant knows their basics but not lucky strike. I know I didn't use Caps for their name. First of all their bowling... More

The food was standard bar / pub fare, all of it good, but not outstanding. Nice bowling setup and billiards too. Great for a couple games with friends or business associates.

The food presentation was good and the server very nice. The atmosphere is what I enjoyed the most. When visiting a city it is good to have fun with bowling and the arcade and pool tables. I found the bowling price for a game expensive though.

Loud music, crowded, if you're looking for a real "City" atmosphere' this is it. Expensive but a fun place to stop in and see

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
