This center of traditional American fun and dining is currently open Tuesdays through Fridays from 2 PM to 9 PM and Saturdays and Sundays from 11 AM to 9 PM. They’re closed on Mondays.

However, If you are looking for some good family fun place to go, then this is also the place for you. After all, what kids wouldn’t love bowling, mac & cheese, and chicken wings?
Numerous guests have praised Kings for their great atmosphere, with fast service at the table and at the bar. Prices are a little high for food and drinks, but worth it.

On Fridays and Saturdays, bowling is $18 per person before 6 PM and $23 per person after 6 PM. How long your bowling session lasts depends on how large your party is. 1-2 players can reserve a lane for 60 minutes. 3-4 Players can reserve a lane for 75 minutes. 5 players can reserve a lane for 90 minutes.

Now for what you’ve probably been waiting for. What exactly is Kings doing to ensure your safety during COVID-19?
Before starting a shift, all members of staff must receive a wellness check. All team members must also wear face masks while working. They’ve implemented social distancing practices throughout their venue including the removal of tables and closure of every other bowling lane. You’ll also have increased access to hand sanitizer and have the choice of either using a digital menu or disposable menus. They’ve designated specific team members to sanitize arcade games, bowling balls, ball returns, shoes, and scoring terminals after a party is done with them. Call ahead to find out if any games are temporarily closed to adhere with six feet apart social distancing. The billiard tables will also be cleaned between use. Balls and cue sticks are also being sanitized between use and stored behind the host desk. And you can rest assured that all lanes are being cleaned with CDC-approved products prior to the entry of a new party.
