WALK IN'S NOT WELCOME. That sums up our experience. If you are looking to bowl you better have a party of 8 or more to make a reservation because if not you will be waiting for hours on the weekend. They only have 9 lanes and the majority of those are filled up with the group reservations. So even if you are told you are next on the list, as we were for 3 hours and that's not exaggerating, that doesn' t put you ahead of the group reservations. Always ask about that if you put your name in and we were even told if we did get to bowl we would have gotten booted off our lane to accommodate a reservation coming up. Really poor setup for anyone that's just truly looking to walk in and bowl with a few friends or family. They will tell you it's an hour wait so you get to spend money on food and drinks and then they just keep saying you are next on the list or only one party ahead of you. I would just ask right away when you walk in how many group reservations they have and that will tell you if 1 hour really means 2 or 3 as well as if you will get more than a half hour on a lane. Staff was apologetic about it but I would have rather them just be honest from the beginning when we were told it would only be an hour wait and then constantly told we're next on the list. Maybe they will get a better system implemented in the future. To top it all off we got called 20 minutes after we left that our lane was ready. So that brought about a good laugh.

Went here on a Saturday evening. Place was hopping with 2 kids parties. There are not very many lanes so the wait for bowling was hours. We decided to sit down and eat anyway. Took awhile for our server to come over and I watched as the table next to us was also ignored for 10-15 min after they sat down. Great beer selection and I am always excited to see Maine Root Beer on the menu. For some reason our pizza took forever to come out. Our pizza was comped, and the server was very apologetic and kept us up to date on what was happening. I am chalking it up to being relatively new and having 2 parties happening at once. I have been to other Flatbread locations and love it. So this will not deter me from trying this location again.

Happy to welcome Flatbread to the neighborhood. Food is as excellent as in other locations. New wood fired ovens seem to be working well. Bowling space is more integrated into dining then we initially expected, but did not decrease our enjoyment of the food or company. Service was excellent. I noticed on the second floor too large, separate areas for private parties. If bowling, can order off full menu.
