I used to love it until they stopped letting us use the free games we earn, as loyalty rewards, on the weekends. Apparently, being a bowler with a Monday thru Friday day job is frowned upon.

Arapahoe bowling center is great! They cater to their league bowlers as any respectable bowling alley would. Service is great when busy . Food was standard bowling alley stuff which is cool with me . Fried pickle chips , burger and fries were very nice 😋. Pinball room is AWESOME!! The pinball tables are owned by a man who rents the space and he takes care of a nice lil collection of tables. All tables are priced differently and fairly!!! As you know on any tableThere is usually a deal . Like 3 plays for 2bux ! Not bad for the privilege to play a classic well maintained table i.e the Champion Pub !!

Love the pro shop. Got my daughter a setup with ball, shoes, and bag for around $240. They spent a lot of time getting the ball perfect for her. The lanes are great, and they have an old-school pinball arcade with 15 plus games. Food is decent old school bowling alley food. People are super nice. It's a real bowlers alley, best in town.

The staff are wonderful and very accommodating.The website to check on free lane times does not reflect events for that day. I wish that there was a more user-friendly, heads-up calendar of events during the time of open lane bowling.Food:It was surprising but not unexpected that the cooks at the bowling alley were under the age of 25.There was no allergy or ingredient information available. So, my friend who is allergic to onions had a rough time eating the food.Big tip: Don't get the burger...unless you enjoy the taste of carbon/charcoal of a Webber BBQ grill.Oh! The nachos are basic and a waste of money. Here is the long story: The $5 nachos. If you desire a basket of good tortilla chips with a heated cup of nacho cheese sauce. Great. However, when I think of nachos, I think of lots of nacho cheese with a side of jalapeno slices and...maybe chili?Nachos are not worth the price.I understand that league bowlers have an overall better ROI and better/regular cash flow. But, when you have new guests with a long wait-list, I will say it's very disheartening to have parties of 1 or 2 getting lane priority, because they come more often.In conclusion, I love old-school bowling alleys. I am excited that this place is booming. But, I just hope that the staff realizes that the current system used to prioritize lanes, thoroughly excludes the potential to create regulars.Oh! On a major side note... the women's bathroom I visited (next to the pinball arcade side) was THE CLEANEST bowling alley I've ever visited. Damn. Bravo to the staff for keeping the bathrooms clean.

Good standard alley. Prices can be up there, bring your own shoes or catch their discounts if you can. League takes over quite a bit here, always call ahead of time to make sure you’re not running into their schedule. Food is alright, classic fried dishes. Bar is good for mixed drinks, beer usually comes a little stale.

Just rolled in from Arapahoe Bowling, and let me tell you, it's a strike in every sense! Not only does it boast the best bowling prices in town, but they also serve up pitchers of beer that won't bowl over your wallet!The place is super-clean and the atmosphere is as smooth as a polished lane. The front desk is also very welcoming. They're there to make sure you're all set to roll from the get-go. And the selection of bowling balls is like picking from a rainbow, each size fitting just right.We even squeezed in some arm wrestling between frames, adding a bit of muscle to the fun.Moses is all thumbs up for Arapahoe Bowling.

Its what bowling alleys used to be before corporatism and fun centers. Bowling is the main attraction and everything else is secondary to that. If you're looking for a trendy time with lots of unnecessary frills and a forced fake atmosphere this isn't the place for you. But if youre looking to actually bowl and have the bowling alley experience, then youve got to come here

My friends and I used to go here all the time. We used to love it! recently, the security guard has had something against younger groups. Extremely rude. My friend accidentally had her ball jump over the lane into the one next to us (which was also our lane) and the security guard (white buff man with bald head and mustache) came up to us, pointed his finger 2 inches from our faces and yelled “do that one more time, YOURE OUT!” He needs to be fired. I hope the owner realizes what a bad staff if running that place. Not to mention, an hour or so before we started bowling we all were hanging out in the parking lot having a beer (of legal age) and the security guard came up to us, didn’t say a word, snatched my can out of my hand and poured it out in front of me. we spoke to the manager, and all he did was shrug. do not go here. Go to the bowlero down the road or pindustry. This place has great potential. But the staff and the dirtiness of it all makes for a horrible experience. They do not care about their guests, only their league players.

This place banned a Down syndrome and them won’t let anyone to bring any food in there. I ask everyone to not go there anymore because they might do it again them are not sorry what they did to me no apologies is expected to everyone else they need to be nicely to their customers not them as much they need to be treated customer as what they are treated. Philip Guthals is going to report in to Greenwood Village county to shot them down because they won’t respond others

Staff is incredible friendly and always seems happy to assist you with whatever you need. Also, one of the few bowling alleys left that seems to care/encourage competitive bowling. They really do a great job and once you’ve been there a couple of times you get on a first name basis which makes it a fun comfortable place to hang out at. Best bowling alley in Colorado and it’s not even close.

Fun place with good bowling and a great selection of pinball. However, the demolition man underground game was not working properly and would not return the ball preventing many of the mini games from working. Hopefully this can be fixed so I can come back because this is the only spot in Denver to have this game.
I love this place. I live in Conifer but make the trip here to practice whenever I can. Clean, bright, amazing pro shop.The bowler desk, approach, lanes, and machines look like they are always kept up. Also, the wide open spacing is fantastic.

I'm speaking as a pinball player and not a bowler here, so take the star rating with a grain of salt based on what you're visiting for.They have a good selection of pins (including the only NBA Fastbreak in Colorado, according to PinballMap,) but they're in terrible condition, and the staff told me that they don't own the machines; presumably they contract a third party to manage them. The staff don't even have keys to fix a stuck ball! Regardless, whoever is responsible for these machines is doing a lousy job.

Great, simple bowling alley. Take advantage of their “happy hour” when you can. Unfortunately was there without a kitchen closed early. Bar stayed open long enough to enjoy through the late night bowling. Time that I went around 10 was pretty slow lots of lanes open. Had hoped for midnight style bowling but it was all lights on with no hiccups. Which you can not beat. Balls were all over the place giving the slowdown I thought there would be someone cleaning and reorganizing the balls. Difficult to find size but eeh, a acceptable part of the experience. Said acceptable not right though.

I typically visit on Tuesday league night to root on some friends. The patrons have always been friendly. They have clean amenities. They have a nice pinball room with tons of machines (20+). Their pros in the shop seem very knowledgeable and they have a nice little bar. The only thing that lacks is the food service. It's typically pretty slow and they seem to have an angry "head chef". I got a pretty disgusted look shot my way for returning cold fries after waiting 15+ minutes and then he seemed to vebally chastise his young employee. My new frys where hot but the portion was even smaller this time. Felt like a slap in the face. Other than that small gripe I've been coming here for 25+ years and never really had a bad time overall.

This is a true bowling alley and it's a good one--the people working there are doing a good job of running it. It is new, and it shows: New means clean and bright. This place is like that. This is not a big restaurant with bowling lanes or a night club where you can also bowl--no. It is a bowling alley where there is a bar area and they also have a snack bar. My chief gripe about ABC has to do with their unwillingness to better manage their leagues or to control how their leagues have made it impossible to bowl there. The size of the leagues has gotten out of control. It had gotten so bad, I.e. there are too many leagues and/or too large of leagues that I, as a league member, am unable to practice because every night, when I call or visit the center, they have a full house because of leagues. 40 lanes occupied every evening and the only time I am able to bowl is during league. No practice. No improvement. I tell you this: I, won't be signing up for league at this bowling alley without some changes made. It's a waste of my time and money. Every night I call the center. Any open lanes tonight? No. Full house. Leagues. In the future I'll do league play at Bowlero.

I have been bowling for 40 years and really appreciate the level of professionalism and knowledge of the staff in the pro shop! The staff talk to you at your level and understand how the game has changed. I wont go anywhere else while I live in Colorado, Fabi is one hell of a pro and Hammer staff! I also appreciate the honesty about equipment and if they don't think its the correct equipment for you they will tell you, not just sell you.

I may be a bit sub par at bowling, and am only good at straights, but hot damn is this a great place. My dad and I come here. Out once a week and bowl. Lil tip for parents: the jawbreaker pinball machine next to the bathrooms gives out more jawbreakers than the one next to the arcade!

Had so much fun with my family! I rated 4 stars just because of look of the place, a little older but still good! - you can get some fun out of it! ☺️

This is the best place to bowl in the area by far.- The lanes are immaculate and oiled on a daily basis- All of the staff is extremely friendly- The pro shop staff are equally friendly, and some of the most knowledgeable people I have ever had the pleasure of speaking with

I love this bowling alley, it’s amazing and so fun, but I recently had a horrible experience there. I went with my girlfriend (she’s a beginner) so she just wanted the bars up, so I go up to a blonde woman in a green shirt and ask her if she can raise the bars for my girlfriend. She then replied very rudely “I can’t do that” and just left it at that then I asked where do I go to raise them she proceeded to act oblivious then I asked “do I just go to the front?” then she went behind my back to a group of people a few lanes away and mocked and ridiculed me for asking for the bars to go up. I have always loved this place and loved coming here but because of this experience I won’t be here for a while because the most important part about bowling is having fun and when she mocked and ridiculed me for my girlfriend skill level and for making fun of us behind our back, now I don’t really feeling included or accepted at a family owned bowling alley that I have been coming to for years because of this experience. Everyone is amazing and so nice and sweet. The bartender is one of my favorite people there but because this employee mocked and ridiculed me I feel excluded and uncomfortable.

Easily one of the best bowling allys i have been to. I have played in a few leagues here and they are well organized and the lanes are the best i have played on.

Family owned place with friendly staff, a clean facility, seemingly good food that I haven't tried myself but my friends have enjoyed. The Machine's rarely break and the Pro-Shop has the best guy around town to get and drill a new ball.

Our favorite way to hang out on Sundays. Bowling cost is reasonable, staff is friendly, great food, great drinks, and the pro shop is helpful. Thanks for keeping such a great atmosphere for casual family fun.

Great place to bowl! Great staff and food. Have bowled league for 30+ years. They did an excellent job keeping open during Covid!!!! Great job Tyson and staff. You are the BEST.

We love this place. Bowling, pool and the pin ball machines amazing!! But I am giving it 3 star because the bartenders are not sanitary. Numerous times she ate behind the bar using her fingers and served drinks without washing hands. Definitely a food safety concern.

Nice lanes friendly staff. Reasonable prices for having fun. Can't seem to bowl over 100 here though maybe it's just me cuz lots of other people seem to do well. There is a reasonable price but the nachos leave something to be desired.

This place was amazing and serious life savers they allowed us to come in with 40 kids after another bowling place cancelled on us last minute. All the staff was amazing and seriously accommodating. I can’t say enough about how amazing the concessions people were. The staff passed all the vibe checks and this place was bussin bussin. Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeesh!!!! It was a great day!!

Steve and Don in the pro shop are great! They both took the time and corrected some problems I had with the finger holes. The bowling alley is also the best I've found since I started bowling this year.

This a great place for the price and the staff is amazing. They're real people. Deffinately recommend at least going, because this place is about bowling and not the extra razzle dazzle that other lanes force feed you

We brought our 2- and 3-year-old here on a frigid winter day and they absolutely loved it! The staff were wonderful and provided the kids with a ball ramp, as well as bumpers for the gutters. They keep asking to go back! Next time we'll play in the arcade, too 🙂

This place has been a Centennial/Greenwood Village gem for a long time! I used to do my birthday parties here as a kid. The place has been well kept and is a great place to go bowling! Good prices.The covid procedures in place (Feb 2021) make going here a safe experience too.

Could some of the services be faster- sure - a polite smile and acknowledgement, even if you can't get to me right away, goes along way. BUT they are always polite & professional. The younger staff doesn't treat the place like they are there to party, Food is WAY better than most, prices are fair, Pro-shop is informative and helpful, even to those that are less experienced.

I used to bowl league here, it was a blast. Good food made to order, they did some recent renovations and added more lanes. Family owned everyone is attentive and polite. They have plenty of parking and a nice sit at bar. Pinball tables in a separate room and a pro shop.

The pro shop is less than friendly or helpful. Quick to make a sale but not there to be of service. I've give mostly 5 star reviews and very few 1 stars. This is borderline 1 star from how I was treated and talked to.

The staff here is always especially nice.It’s not the newest most modern bowling alley, but it’s a bowling alley. The lanes are decent the balls are decent. There is a game room, there are vending machines, and the restrooms are always clean. I’ve never had it, but the food (I believe it was chicken fingers and fries) actually smells good.Here, they are especially accommodating to special needs children and adults. They also seem to be especially accommodating to children and seniors. It’s not celebrity lanes, but more of the old style feel that you grew up with. Comfortable, not saddidy.

Don in the pro shop is very helpful and knowledgeable. He setup my ball and helped me improve my game. Arapahoe bowl has the nicest pro shop on the southside of denver. Every thing I needed was in stock and prices were good. Thank you!

Nice establishment with lots of lanes, was clean, had friendly staff who provided good customer service, food and drinks available, overall a good experience. I would come back here again for bowling. Bonus: over 10 pinball machines in their arcade if that's your thing.

Hands-down our favorite bowling alley around! This is one of the few independently owned alleys left in Denver and surrounding area, and it shows! Quality of service is top notch all the way from the front counter, the grill, the pro shop, and to the fully stocked bar. And because they are family owned, they reinvest in their space, their people, and the experience - constantly updating equipment, menus, games, etc. Special recognition to Chris who has taken great care of our small league for a number of years now. And always a pleasure to see Michelle's smiling face behind the bar. I look forward to bowling here for many years to come.

One of my favorite bowling centers to visit. Family owned and well kept lanes. They have a large league base and hold many tournaments. It's an old school bowling center not a fun center like most bowling alleys are going too. No restaurant just snacky foods like hamburgers and such. Food is what you expect from a place like this. It's usually pretty busy with leagues and open bowlers. They have one of the few pro shops I visit in the Denver area. Steve Badovinc owns the pro shop and is a very accomplished bowler. Steve is a great guy and very friendly. Service is usually very good here and friendly. It's kept pretty clean but is an older center so does not have the clean fresh look that most fun centers have. But that's a good thing in my opinion. Again love this center, especially for league and tournaments. One of the better Denver area bowling centers.

We needed to get a bowling ball. Pro shop person was very helpful for my son. He asked what lb ball he threw, left or right handed ball, fingertip or not. We looked what ball he got and the person who worked there measured his hand and we were surprised he could drill the ball right there and we would just wait and it didn't take long. He asked my son as usual to see how it felt, let him just test it with just a little roll and my son said it was just right. We even bought a bag. Am going to recommend to any of my friends if they need a new ball or other bowling supplies go to Arapahoe Bowling Center. We even have bowled there. Very happy with Arapahoe Bowling Center

We are pretty regular visitors here and it is great pretty much every time. We do the "kids bowl free" every summer and are never disappointed. Bailey is always incredibly helpful as well as all of the other staff. The beer is cold and the food is surprisingly good for a bowling alley. Highly recommended and if your in the mood ask Bailey for a bloody Mary

Great place to bowl with kids and they are very accommodating. Bumpers, light balls (though they only have a few), and shoes that fit toddlers made the day. Just watch the hours for their "kids bowl free" coupons. The program is definitely worth it. If you bowl twice with kids it essentially pays for itself. Nice pinball room too! We didn't try the food, so no opinion there.

I was very impressed with the cleanliness and the kindness from the staff! Best bowling alley I've ever been to and will be the only one from now on! Amazing food, drinks, alleys and they have a lottery machine!Shout out to Austin who was the nice fella who took my order and was very polite and sweet. Hope to see him again! That gentleman at the front as well, Caden.... Or maybe Cameron.. . I don't remember the name but he was also kind and helpful.

Good staff, were quick to come help when little brother got the ball stuck (He's still learning). The place wasn't loud, wasn't dirty, their systems worked without error, now I didn't personally buy any food or drink so I do not have any opinions on the prices.

The newly renovated location was worth thr wait! The family friendly environment is great. The lanes are brightly decorated, the carpeting is great and the new construction makes the open space look much larger then previously. They have a wonderful selection of pinball machines and some other arcade games. The food is really good and the menu diverse. They also have a full bar.

Arapahoe bowling center is one of if not the best bowling centers around. The crew is always cheerful and helpful, I went in this past Sunday and Cameron and Marissa really stuck out with their bubbly personality’s and the help they provide because of them I will make bowling on a Sunday a usual thing. THANKS!

This place is updated nicely and is a very friendly place to go bowling with the family. The bar is super affordable and has a decent selection of drinks, and the pizza was surprisingly good. as always this is a great place to go bowling in the neighborhood and I would opt to go here over then the big box bowling spots.
