This 800-capacity concert venue features 12 lanes of bowling -three of which are elevated in a private party area with its own bar - and food is supplied by the famed Bromberg Bros. Blue Ribbon Restaurants.
The venue marks the first time Blue Ribbon has operated outside of the US, bringing its signature menu including Oyster Po' Bos, Cajun Catfish, French Bread Pizzas, Egg Shooters, and of course their world-renowned Fried Chicken. In addition, the bar features beers from the local Meantime Brewing Company.

Somewhat off-putting how stingy Brooklyn Bowl is with their bowling time allowance as their 30 minute slots are timed to the limit and you're told to pay extra if you run over the allotted time even if your game hadn't finished. The food is presented well and quite nice actually but in retrospect, it's probably not a good idea to eat while you have a game of bowling since you are under timed...more
So my friend and I decided we fancied going for some American food and thought we'd check out this place. Pretty quiet when we got there, so got a good table and served fairly quickly.
The downside sadly was the food at 10 pound for a veggie sandwich, I was a tad disappointing, especially given my fries were far from warm. My friend went for the catfish, which although it was nice at 14...more
