Fodor's Review

A former ironworks foundry now houses a setup the original workers might have appreciated: 16 bowling lanes, a cocktail bar, a music stage, and a restaurant. The team behind the Blue Ribbon restaurant-bar empire handles the menu, which features Louisiana-style southern specialties like oyster po'boys, Cajun catfish, and their excellent signature fried chicken. There's an excellent selection of brews on tap. Weekends bring out the crowds—and there are no lane reservations except for large parties—so it can take a while to get a lane, but you'll have a blast while you wait.
