Great family bowling alley! – We love Twin City Lanes! It has an unpretentious, down-home atmosphere, and we always get friendly and personal service. The owner, Dave (who is almost always there working), and staff make you feel welcome, and glad to have you there. Their prices are competitive but very reasonable.
Circle and Pheasant Lanes in town are both larger and have more amenities in the way of food choices/services and additional games (like pool or foosball tables; But in our experiences, the impression we sometimes left with was a feeling that they were impersonal, disinterested, and hectic... get us in, get our money, and get us out. Attention, service, food, and drinks all seemed either to take a long time or a hassle to get. And the employees at both places were many times either harried and understaffed, or just inattentive and uncaring... and didn't seem to take the time to give prompt, courteous, and friendly personal attention like they always give at Twin City Lanes, even if business was slow. The prices of everything are also higher at these two places in comparison.
The building, lanes, and decor of Twin City Lanes are not as modern and flashy as the other two alleys in town. But they are well-kept, highly serviceable, and we prefer them over the "industrial" and tiresome lanes at the other places. We have also been extremely pleased with the products and services we've gotten at Dave's Pro Shop.
We love going to the Moonlight Bowling on Saturday nights (adults only for the Moonlight Bowl, but your kids can come and bowl with other kids on seperate lanes for a few bucks! What a deal for a Saturday night family outing!) Overall, our family always has a great time at Twin City Lanes, and highly recommend them!
