    Voted Top 10 Bloody Marys! Our favorite is Amanda's Rock n' Roller made with lots of garlic and mild green Tabasco but maybe the Bloody Caesar made with Clamato or the Bloody Beer is more your style.

    Bryant-Lake Bowl, where a certain sort of perfect life has been achieved, a life where a love of the vine and a fascination with mastering the 7-10 split exist in beautiful harmony. Read more

    Get a seat at the bar if you can and watch Casper work; singing, commentary, and all n all a positive person make the experience at the bar on Sunday an awesome brunch. Get the BLB hash.

    Amy's breakfast burrito is always a crowd pleaser, but if you're ever in the mood for something more wholesome, you can't go wrong with the steel cut oatmeal with brown sugar and banana!

    The BBQ Bowler is the best item on the breakfast menu. Pro Tip: You can substitute breakfast potatoes for the mixed greens. I recommend you do that.

    Unique menu! Delicious food, vintage bowling, fun crowd. Servers are a little full of themselves but that may be a result of serving too many hipsters.

    Gluten free bread and buns available. Omission Pale Ale and Lager in bottles. GF people can *eat a burger* and *drink a beer* in public at the same time. Luxury.

    A vintage bowling alley, restaurant, and cabaret theater, serving up grass-fed beef, sustainably harvested seafood, and lots of micro brews.

    Stop for brunch -- both the biscuits and mushroom gravy and the bison hash stand out as classic examples of Uptown comfort food. Read more

    This is food if your drunk or hung over. All food taste good when your drunk. Even bacon wrap hot dogs in Tijuana. Great place to bowl have fun and drink.

    They have a good beer selection, but if you've come to bowl then you need to know how the scoring works. There is no automated system - everything is pencil & paper. And lane #5 curves to the left.

    You wouldn't expect to find amazing curried chevre fusilli with English peas at a bowling alley, but that's the type of fare they're serving here. Read more

    It's like Lucky Strike, except more hip and authentic and now that I think about it pretty much the only thing they have in common is bowling and booze.

    Amanda's is my favorite of the Bloodies. Much respect for 4 of them on the menu. Tart, a little kick, nice thick mix.

    They got rid of the BBQ Bowler, the best thing on the breakfast menu. Ask nicely and maybe they’ll bring it back.

    The pad thai is OK, not exceptional. The mac and cheese, however, is amazing. Order that instead.

    The current mayor hates cheese because of a traumatic experience as a child. Ask her. She's bartending.
