A few short years ago I decided to sign my older son up for a junior bowling league thinking he might like it. My first impressions back then with JB’s was great customer service, and an overly fun place, you can spend a lot of time. I can confirm now that this is one of my favorite establishments in southeastern Wisconsin to hang out. First, my son still bowls here, and recently I started bowling in a league as well. That being said, the people that work here are all super friendly that remembers names and are always looking like they truly enjoying their jobs which I know they do. Those same people are also wanting you to have a good time and go out of their way to make that happen. The food and bar are excellent. The bar and the way it is set up makes it very easy to get food and drink while you bowl, but at the same time, if you are in the bar area, makes it feel like you’re not at a bowling alley. JB’s also has one excellent game area that my kids and I enjoy playing. Me being like a kid, I’ve spent my fair share of money trying to earn my kids a new set of headphones with tickets and have had a blast doing so. For those of you that like something a little different, JB’s also offers a fun moonlight type bowling all day long that is separated from the regular bowling alley. In that area, there are big screen TV’s at the end of the alleys and a cool laser light show going on. It really is a cool area to bowl in. During a year, JB’s also has other really neat things going on, for example they had 2 hours of bowling and a pancake breakfast one day. People came in their PJ’s and bowled while they ate breakfast; they also do various fundraisers for good causes. I could go on, but all you need to do is stop in, grab a ball, play a few games, and you will see what I mean. Thank you JB’s for making this one of my family’s favorite places to be.
So – wow. What a great upgrade! New lanes, new food, new shoes, new balls… This is the iPic of the Southside – but much cheaper and friendlier! Did you know they have a VIP/private area? Yep – I want to have a party here! We got a special VIP behind the scenes tour. So cool. Those pinsetters are all mechanical, people! They’ve been in there since the 50’s. JB’s is so proud of their lanes, and you can tell. The service was kind, the setting was comfortable, and the food was pretty dang good!
Very much enjoyed an afternoon bowling with the family. Great lanes, very up-to-date, comfy seating, great service, and lots of fun. I’ll definitely be returning.
