Bowlero // Now Open In Milford Connecticut
Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine alone.
This past Saturday was Valentina’s actual birth date. Even though we already had a party for her, I wanted to make her birthday fun and special and just the five of us.
We headed out to check out Bowlero, a new bowling alley that opened up about 25 minutes from us in Milford. We didn’t tell the kids where we were going and they were surprised when we arrived. Only my oldest daughter has bowled before at a friends birthday.
My husband and I haven’t bowled in YEARS – I’m talking at least a decade or more. Immediately my first impression was that we needed to come back for a date night with some more couples. Don’t get me wrong, this place is fun for kids, but it was 10:30 in the morning and after a quick glance at the awesome menu for food and drinks this place makes for a really fun date night!
When we walked in to Bowlero the music was playing, the vibe was hip and cool, the lighting was dim and colorful, there was so much to take in and the lanes were ready and waiting for us to play. The kids, never seeing anything like this before, had eyes wide open! The staff that greeted us was totally accommodating and pleasant. Really making our whole time there (nearly 3 hours) a VIP experience. I just cannot say enough good things about the waitress that served our lanes while we were there. She was ON IT and our drinks were never empty, our food always coming out at the perfect time, our area kept neat and tidy and she would check on us every so often to see if we were set.
I love how they put our food order out to display – each item with its menu name and plenty of forks, knives, napkins and plates for you and your guests to serve yourself while you play.
The food is all made fresh to order in house. We ordered a few items that we figured the kids and us would like. We started with the Nacho Avalance – moved on to the Hand Stretched Cheese Pizza, and the Behemoth Burger (OMG) and finished the whole thing off with Vanilla and Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches. We barely put a dent in any of it, but my kids gasped when they saw THE BIGGEST BURGER EVER come out with fireworks on top of the bun!
This burger was SO GOOD. The bun was freshly made that morning. I would describe the bread being similar to focaccia, herby, crusty, soft in the middle, and delicious. The burger was cooked perfectly to medium well and the toppings were so fresh. It was really good! We took the leftover burger home and ate it for leftovers for a few days! Kids loved the pizza. You could really tell it was fresh, the dough, the sauce and cheese all freshly put together. The nachos were really great to start with. My kids love nachos and these didn’t disappoint. To top it all off the ice cream sandwiches had really creamy high quality vanilla ice cream in soft baked chocolate chip cookies rolled in sprinkles! How fun is that?! And, not expected at a bowling ally!
After our bowling string ended (I WON!) we made our way down to the arcade. I was told they will be expanding this section to accommodate more events and birthday parties (WOOHOO)! My three had a blast and it was nice that they could all participate ranging in age from 2-6.5.
Kids had such a blast and so did we. Can’t wait to get back over summer vacation and they have a great Summer Game Pass I’m going to take advantage of to save $$!
