I created a rateclubs account specifically to write this bad review. DO NOT bowl here. The entire experience was ridiculous. FYI, the below happened on a slow Sunday afternoon. 1) My bf called ahead to ask if there was a wait or if we should make a reservation. The woman said "I don't know." When asked to clarify, she said "We don't have any reservations for today and it doesn't seem crowded, but I really can't say because I don't know how many people have walked in." What does this mean??? We decide to go anyway. 2) We get there and ask the woman at the front desk if there is a wait for 2 people. "I don't know." Oh no, this is the woman from the phone! She continues "... but if you go up to the register, she will know because she is in charge of the lanes." OK -- well why isn't that the person you speak to when you call? 3) After waiting a while for the woman at the register to acknowledge us, we are told the wait is 40 minutes. Um, this is why we called? We were given a buzzer and went to have a drink at the bar (the bar is the only nice thing about this place). We noticed there were at least 7 open lanes visible. She says "We have open lanes, I'm just going through the wait list in order." ??? 4) We finally get to bowl, but our lane shuts down after 1 game (we paid for 2 games). So I quickly go up to the register and nicely tell her what happened. She asks to see my receipt because "the computer" says I only paid for 1 game. Meanwhile, my bf and I had an entire conversation in front of her when we purchased 2 games about whether we should get 2 or 3, but she still treated me like I was trying to steal a game. I told her we didn't keep our copy of the receipt but we paid $51 which is the cost of 2 games. Again, she asked for the receipt. I ask her to please look for HER SIGNED COPY of the receipt so she can check the amount we paid. She points to the locked register drawer and says "I can't, it's in there." So I say "well, can you please LOOK IN THERE because we paid not too long ago, so it should be right on top." She sighs and then starts looking through a messy pile of crumpled receipts ON THE DESK (not in the locked register like she said). She finds it and sees that we did indeed pay for 2 games. She says "Ok go ahead. it was an honest mistake." ??? Also, the waitress brought us the wrong drink and we had to ask multiple times for our check. Go to Port Authority or Bowlmor, the management of this place is completely unacceptable.

A friend of mine lured me there as a surprise. Anyway, we sat in the garden, which was stunning. I had a couple of drinks, the tuna tartar and a beet salad. I meant to order the pizza to share with one of my friends, but we both thought the other was going to order it. No big deal. I was simply happy to be where I was. I loved our waitress who was just lovely. We had more than one wait person because I think one person was training. Anyway, I loved the vibe, the food, and the service. The environment was not oppressive, which I always appreciate. You can tell that the people who work there are treated well. So, what more do you need? Good food, nice staff, fair prices (would have been cheap, actually, if I had not ordered liquor), and utterly gorgeous atmosphere.

Am I cool like you guys cause I have tattoos? I want that guy with the faux hawk and tight Ed Hardy shirt!!! You look like you're from LA, can we be friends? Geeze, this place is douche central! The music sucks, the people suck and I'm not cool enough to chill with these people. They lean towards what they think is cool. Door 44 is far from cool. And the 2 guys who claim to be the co-owners of the place are real cocky. So sad to say this, but this place makes Graveyard look good. I highly recommend Jesse James to ride his chopper through this place and piss all over it.

Your greatest move yet was when you started booking that band from spokane called -SLIP STREAM- I CANT SAY IT WAS THE bar room brawls knocking, spilling,ashtrays , expensive drinks, lit cigarrettes, peoples personals on to the floor, very dramatic indeed---well i must say thank god for slipstream and the way they have a good time bringing the people together, for a nite of danceing and friends haveing fun with friends and even people who met for the first time can relate to this bands stout nucleus of players-- the bartender was very curtious and speedy, people dont fight during a slipstream show and thats ok by me compared to the past i hope to see more bookings for slipstream in the future. see ya then .....yours truly pixie
