I love Dream Lanes. Every time I'm there, I get treated well. We love going on Packer game days, when they have their $1 margarita and soda promotion. Shoes and games are also a dollar during the games. Even now that I live over on the west side of Madison, I still will drive out there to bowl. Having Pizza Pit attached is nice too, though now that I'm gluten free I won't really have any food options within the center. I would love to see Pizza Pit develop a gluten free selection, but that is an issue many places. Overall, Dream Lanes is the best bowling alley I've been to - and not just because their margaritas are strong!

Local, fun, cheap, clean and easy-going. I first went to Dream Lanes for a kiddie birthday party. The grade-schoolers were in heaven (pizza, soda, balloons, bumper-bowling and game room). They try to keep the little ones together so as not to bother the serious bowlers. They loved it so much we went back as a family -- even on a weekend afternoon, lanes were open, and the bowlers were from all skill levels. At one point I made a mistake -- I pocketed change, forgot, and thought my husband had it. He didn't, and I went to the customer service desk to request the change. The manager insisted (nicely) that he had given us the change, and I became really upset. I told him that the service was terrible and if my sons weren't so excited to bowl I would leave and never recommend Dream Lanes. Well, as it turned out, I had pocketed the change. I went to apologize and the manager was extremely gracious (and he should have turned me out on my ear!) So, in gratitude for a cheap, fun, friendly afternoon and a very gracious staff from a very loud and upset and mistaken customer, I am now a fan of Dream Lanes and do recommend them for their courtesy.

Good bowling alley, but the service sucks and the staff (esp. the 2 old guys) are a bunch of deuschbags. We have been there multiple times, each of which time the attitude of the two assholes at the counter has deterred us from ever going there again. The most recent time, we were in a 6-some and were the only people in the entire alley and they would not permit us to split up between 2 lanes. Then, when another party walked in, they put them right next to us and refused to space us out. The time before that, they would not honor a valid coupon. If you are a UW student, do yourself a favor and go to the new Union South and spare yourself from the deuschbag debauchery!

Had a great time last night at Dream Lanes. $8 for all you can bowl and free shoe rental. Beer specials were great and it wasn't crowded. Recommend to the casual bowling enthusiast.

Poor customer service sours the fun. We printed coupons from the Dream Lanes website. When our foursome arrived we were discussing how many games to play in order to decide to use the 2 hours for the price of 1 coupon, or the BOGO per game coupon. The guy at the counter told use we could get started and they would use the least expensive coupon when we were done. Bowling was fun, and after two games we decided to play a third and use the 2 hour coupon. The problem was that there was a different guy at the counter when we went to pay. He promptly told us that hourly games must be paid for in advance. He offered no other options, and after calling the owner, told use we would need to pay the higher price. Such poor customer service is surprising from a business that must depend on repeat customers. Needless to say, we won't be going back. We've been regulars at Village Lanes for years, but moved within walking distance of Dream Lanes recently. This was our first time going there... we'll be driving elsewhere from now on.

Nice lanes, nice people, and they run a great recreational league. I've always enjoyed myself there.
