Don Carter Lanes Reviews & Ratings
We go to "the cup". (The restaurant inside) if you like oldtime diners, this is the place for you. They gave good food at a great price! I would definitely recommend. We have been going there for over twenty years and have never been dissatisfied!!!!
Very pleasant experience overall really. The staff are very helpful and my party felt well accommodated. They have a bar and serve food (which is in my opinion pretty good). It's a great place for family bowling and they also have bowling leagues that you can join if you find yourself wanting to bowl outside of casual play. I would easily recommend Don's to anyone.
This place has gone down. They care for the open bowlers more. I'm bowling in a league and they keep putting more and more open bowlers next to us. Not fun or enjoyable anymore this will be the last league I bowl in.
This was the first and last time that I’ll ever go to Don Carter Lanes. I have never been treated so badly by staff before. I work in customer service so I’m used to having bad days too, but Valerie was exceptionally rude. I tried getting a bowling lane when there were more than 12 available lanes open and she gave me attitude. She said that I would have to hurry and she would kick me out if our game took too long because they had a school coming in to practice bowling for their league in an hour and a half. At first I thought she was kidding, but then I noticed she didn’t even turn on my lane so no bowling balls were even available. I asked her about why my lane wasn’t on and she just said I don’t know and ignored me to talk to another associate so I returned my shoes and requested a refund. I really thought this bowling alley would have been a great one in the Rockford area. I really wish Valerie would have just focused on the customers she had at the moment and not rushed us out. They might as well have posted on the door that they were closed and kept the bowling alley private if they were expecting a large crowd in an hour and a half.
Full service bowling alley. You have video gaming bowling and on of the best stocked bars in Rockford. The music set the atmosphere and be all had a great time. One of my favorite places to go.
