    Fun but the ball returns were not functioning well. Also it would be nice if the tables were closer to bowling

    Had a great time bowling. The bowling area is narrow with not much room for a full group but it is still a great time. We got a table afterwards and the food and drinks are very reasonably priced and they have lots of specials every week.

    Bowling might be ok if you were there with a few friends having a drink, but not condusive at all for our group of 2 adults and 3 children. Very cramped and no seating to speak of.

    First lane we tried bowling didn’t work at all. Second lane it was not keeping score properly. Center pin always came back down even if knocked down the first time so it was a totally bust. Very disappointing.

    Not a great evening at The Canadian Brewhouse, 6 of us arrived at our reserved time, staff took 15 mins to set up bowling. Busy night, not enough staff, drinks took 40 mins, food was cold. Server was not able to be attentive and that created an unpleasant experience. Will not be back, wouldn't recommend unless this is your scene.

    The bowling lane was not working well, it didn’t count correctly the points and one pine kept falling suddenly. The service was not great our waitress took way too long for everything, the menus took around 15 minutes to arrive and when we got out boneless we asked for ranch and it took 20 minutes to arrive. The “boneless” are honestly the same thing as Walmart chicken nuggets. Also, the mango margarita, I think, had jalapeño and that made it pretty gross. :(

    Walked in and waited for someone to greet us for a while until we walked into the restaurant and sat ourselves. Bowling was fun once we were doing it but took about an hour to get someone to get us started with bowling and get shoes etc as there was like one server on for the whole bowling alley and half the restaurant with Christmas parties of 50+ people coming in, total chaos. If you’re considering coming here for bowling, go to Langford lanes.

    Seriously understaffed. Poor servers were running all over the place trying to wait tables and help bowlers. Bowling was a joke. No one available to help with shoe exchange, no where to sit, certainly not meant for kids and while I thought bowling before a certain time was going to be one cost, I did not realize that shoe rental would double that price. No where did I see that explained, so that was unexpected. Kids literally said it was boring. Bathrooms smelled horrid and the general layout of the space made no sense as people walked in not knowing where the pub was with no hostess or signage. Pretty lousy experience over all.

    Great time and the server was amazing, but they are so short staffed and putting a lot of pressure on one or two people to serve way too many. Management should be helping at times like this

    No host to seat us for 15 min! (With reservation for 8). We stood there waiting with no acknowledgement and no help. Then No waitress came to the table to take drink order or give menu for another 15 min. Almost left restaurant then. My food order was wrong, another persons was cold and sent back and arrived 25 min later, we all got food at various times, and despite a two hour window that I accounted for before bowling, one friend got her meal 10 minutes before bowling. That’s one hour and 50 minutes from arriving! It was a gong show! Waitress was pleasant, but clearly they did not have enough staffing on for the restaurant’s needs. Extremely disappointed.

    We had bowling booked for a Saturday evening for my sisters birthday. We were given a table but didn’t get service because the girl was so busy. We were wanting to order a drink before our bowling time but ended up waiting 20 minutes or so and then we went over to the bar and got our own drinks. We asked the girl at the front bowling desk who was our server and she said she was but she was extremely busy stuck at the desk and didn’t seem like she would even get to us. We found a manager after waiting awhile more because we wanted to order food and we let him know she was super busy and seemed stressed. Keep in mind me and my friend are servers so we are super understanding but also needed service because we came for dinner and had a reservation. After our server was able to come over and take our food order, we started bowling and realized we only had 15 minutes left on our bowling time even though we had only been bowling for about 10. We just wanted to make sure we got our full hour we paid for so we had to find someone to fix the time. Once our food came, we received boneless bbq wings, but asked for bone in buffalo, one wrap didn’t come, and then someone brought out the wrong wrap and said it was a remake with cactus chips but not the yam fries that were ordered. My sister ordered a poutine for her meal but got a side poutine. The wings were remade but we didn’t say anything about the poutine or wrap just because it would be too much trouble. As a server I would have definitely asked to discount the meals or get them a round of drinks or something. The manager did say someone called in sick at the bowling area but they should of had someone helping her. Our server did not even apologize or acknowledge that the service was horrible and didn’t compensate anything for us which most places will always do. We were being understanding but it was probably the worst dining experience i’ve had, don’t recommend. Go to Langford Lanes !

    Was very disappointed with the Bowling here. We were not served the entire hour we were there even after going up to multiple different staff members asking to order. There is also no place to sit during bowling and gets quite crowded when there are multiple groups.

    The bowling was fun and I really liked the different games. My note here is for the management. The building was understaffed. It wasn't clear how best to flag someone down for food while not leaving my seven year old alone. We also would have needed something to eat early since we had another commitment afterwards. Also, the bumpers on our lane wouldn't go down, so we were stuck with them up (I got some cheap spares because of them), since there was no one available to do troubleshooting. Still fun, but I'd hope next time the restaurant and bowling alley will be better staffed so these two issues won't be repeated.

    We got there and we were rushed to start bowling. They told us that we only had an hour as they were booked up all night. Our game started at 7 and finished at 8. When we started bowling our lanes froze so the pins wouldn’t reset. Took them 10 minutes to fix the issue. So we had even less time to play. Once we were done we were there till 11 after us there was 2 other groups bowling so there was 4 lanes still open. We could have easily stayed in our lane till 10. The food was overpriced and nothing special. Portion sizes were pretty small. I asked for a double shot and when I got it I swear it was a watered down single. Our server was nice but they kept disappearing on us when we wanted to order something. When we finally managed to order something the wait time for a drink was way too long. After 930 there wasn’t many other parties there and the bar was empty still took 20-30 minutes to get a pint. I hope for better but now I know where not to go for our next event. Which is a shame as it could be a sweet place to hang out at.

    We were the only ones in line and waiting for 10 minutes at the front desk to check in and get our shoes, as no one was at the check in desk. Once we started bowling it took the waitress 30 mins to take our drink order. By the time our hour was up for bowling, the first round of drinks hadn’t even come yet.

    The day rate on bowling is very appealing. Unfortunately the lane we had after being moved from a lane where no one could seem to drop the bumpers had many issues. The pin reset could not figure out how to reset one pin the entire hour. Often down pins would be left for the next shot. Someones shot would be recorded without a ball even being rolled. Took a while to get the manager to have a look. Was told I could get a free bowling by server who wrote this down on a scrap piece of paper? I am doubtful this will work if I try to cash in. Not the best experience. Willing to give another try at some point maybe.

    Horrible . Beer not cold gross bleach smells in building. Staff were beyond not helpful. We asked where the bowling was and staff answered main floor. Well we were on the main floor no sign and the staff did not point us to the door so we went downstairs and then up the elevator ( where there was a sign) We found the bowling alley had trouble finding staff. Finally we start to bowl and the first round the ball gets stuck and no staff to be found. I had to speak louder and say " Hello anyone here?" Finally a staff member appears and we chose to leave without bowling. What a gross place.

    I expect this place will not be there this time next year Saturday 8:00 to 9:00 p.m. zero clients in such a huge three-floor facility by the time I left bowling shortly after 9:00 p.m. we were the only people on the entire floor I should have looked upstairs because they said there was quite a few people on the outdoor patio I don't believe that what the heck cbh you're doing something wrong Victoria is too small to not hit the mark your food is far overpriced and mediocre quality and the Ambiance was less than zero when you're the only people in a establishment like this sorry for the poor review but change whatever you're doing because it is not working.. Chicken wings, two drinks and bowling $110 that's insane.. Did not stay for dinner, went 200 ft down the sidewalk to Brown's and it was almost packed.. that's how you do it.

    We made a reservation to go bowling. At noon the day they called to ask to push our bowling to 7:30 but offered us a round of drinks on the house and a patio table for 7. This was totally fine with us. We ordered drinks and got the worlds worst nachos. There was little cheese, dry chicken and no salsa or sour cream. We asked our server if we we’re supposed to get salsa she asked us if we were sure we hadn’t received any and then asked if we wanted her to go get some… we did. It then took about 8min for her to return with them. We watched her chat to another server and the bartender while holding our sauces. At 7:30 we wandered downstairs to go bowling. We waited about 5 min at the desk until a blond woman wearing a gray blazer got us our shoes and told us to wait at a table until the 3 gentlemen ahead of us were done bowling. They wrapped up a 7:45. We go back to the desk to check in there’s a brunette behind the counter who tells us we’re now late for our booking! We just did what we were told!! After this the regional manager appeared to try and resolve who was going where with the bowling lanes. At this point it was 8 pm and we were told if we waited another 5 min he might have it figured out. We decided to just leave. Jordan, the regional manager, told us to send him an email… I did and haven’t heard back. It’s been 4 days. I know sh*t happens and bad days occur but what really irks me is that lack of communication the whole team had amongst each other, poor customer service and blaming us for following your instructions. Do better!

    Our bowling lane did not work.It would not hold any scores.We were also told we did not have a bowling reservation when we got there, when clearly I had it on my phone. The manager provided us a free bowling next time,if we go again...it took over 20 minutes to get our drinks..while the staff chatted.over all the food was good but not worth the almost 2 hours start to finish, with my daughter dissapointed with no bowling

    When we arrived we were told there was no reservation for us, none of the bumpers work and only some of the pins. We tried anyways. Ball return didn't work on the first lane so they moved us to a different lane and that lanes computer wasn't working. There were no other lanes she could move us to so we didn't end up playing and thankfully she didn't make us pay for any of it. She sent us upstairs with free batting cage tokens for the trouble. Not one of the 3 cages were working. All the machines took our coins and never turned on. This place could be the best hang out in Victoria because the location and patio are amazing but it's a joke! Save your money and go anywhere else. The only thing redeeming about it was the friendly staff!

    We had a good time bowling. I will definitely go again and can’t wait to visit the rooftop patio. I think there needs to be more signage or adds as no one knows where it is located. Too bad, it is a fun venue. Thanks
