Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas Ratings and Reviews
Brooklyn Bowl had the best fried chicken ...
Brooklyn Bowl had the best fried chicken I have ever had. The bowling alley with the comfortable couches was great. Fun for the whole family. I will definitely be coming back here. And recommend to everyone I know.
LOVE the matzo fried chicken!!
They revamped the menu last June, which was disappointing. Fortunately, they kept their fried chicken and the Rock n Roll fries, which is their version of Poutine. Ask for extra gravy if you get those fries. The fried chicken is probably one of the best I've had, but its not cheap. However the best way to dine here is to share with others, and that's what we did. The downside is they offer you puny little appetizer plates, which is hardly large enough to put a few scoops of fries.
Reservations may not be needed, but at least you get your OT points.
Not What I Expected...
I went with a couple of friends at opening time because the reviews were great for their brunch menu. The server was exceptional- it wasn't her fault that the coffee machine was broken or that the food was mediocre. After all, on a Saturday in a bustling place like Las Vegas, you'd expect the basics to function. For the price, they gave us huge portions for the omelets and sandwich plates. We requested fruit bowls and fries. The grapes were sad and on the verge of spoiling- not acceptable- and the shoestring fries portion was massive. A regular brunch meal would fill two adults comfortably. Why the excess? I have no idea. It's NOT the type of place to go to if you don't mind paying a lot for reasonably-sized, tasty and quality food. Go elsewhere, even a popular chain restaurant, for better-tasting food.
Ambiance-wise, I could have done without the depressing, 90s alternative rock music blaring through a 1/4-full bar section...it was 12:30pm in the afternoon. Thank goodness we were not hungover. I'm usually a fan of rock, just not at that time of day or environment.
Great food poor service
The food as usual was amazing, however our server laughed in my parents face when they asked for a non-alcoholic beer and was not familiar with the menu at all. Lucky for us there a was a server that was knowledgeable I just had to get up The restaurant portion music was soooo loud we sat in the bar.
Fun Comfort Food
We did dinner and bowling for my birthday and it was a great time. We thought the food was overpriced for what it was, but as locals we accept on-Strip prices for what they are. The hubs and I are doing the low carb thing and were thrilled to find several menu items that fit into our plans. The service was prompt and not too intrusive.
We started with the pork rinds appetizer. The spice blend was delicious and the limes really complemented the flavor, but basically it was a pile of spicy pork rinds on a plate with a tablespoon of cheese and maybe two tablespoons of the jalapeño/onion/cilantro mixture. I would have liked to see it served chips/salsa style, with the jalapeño mixture in a small bowl for dipping, or the equivalent amount on the plate.
We split a Greek Salad. I normally order dressing on the side but forgot this time, and was pleasantly surprised to find they hadn't drowned it. The greens were fresh, olives were tasty, etc. Good, standard Greek Salad.
Hubs got the catfish and I got the steak for entrees. Flavors were good and the sides were delicious. My steak was rubbery and difficult to cut, which was disappointing. For
the price (even on The Strip), I wanted just a step up from what I got.
All that said, our service was excellent and we got to enjoy a rare meal out together. And of course, Brooklyn Bowl is more about the music than the food. We've been to several shows and the venue is great. We love the variety of acts, the well-tuned D&B audio system, and the bar right next to the stage.
My wife and I had a very fun time at the Bowl. Our two servers were fantastic, nice young girls that delivered great service and were extremely friendly. They made it worth going there alone.
They are famous for their fried chicken, so we got an order of wings (which were great) split a salad and then split a fried chicken dinner. It was plenty of food and the collard greens and mash potatoes that came with it rounded things out well.
The chicken is great. I gave it four stars because it is bar food and I didn't want to confuse foodies. It was great bar food and they know their niche well. We will go back for sure (we are locals).
Food was okay, service was awful.....
I would not recommend this place to any of my family nor friends that visit Las Vegas at any time..... The worst service I ever had.. Have had better service at Burger King. Place was almost empty, they had more than five servers and the young ladies just staying in a group laughing .. had to get up and get my own drink...
Great casual spot for fun, food, and live music
Fried Chicken super yummy! Planned for a chill atmosphere for my husbands birthday, a dinner and a concert which was a wonderful success! They provided all that I requested with a great table for dinner and a perfect spot to see the stage. Our servers were awesome throughout. Nice beer selection too. It is a cool spot to hang out, eat, and have a good time.
For the first time here, I had a great experience! I made an RSVP for 2 to dine & also see an event. Even though we were a bit late for the reservation, we were seated right away. The hostess greeted us & our waiter was polite. My overall experience was AWESOME! Definitely come back for sure...
Dinner before concert
We decided to eat at Brooklyn Bowl before a 9 pm concert. Tip: if you are interested in concert/bowl/dinner together, consider a package that allows all 3. We could not get a lane separately from a package on concert night. Dinner was very nice-- pork rinds were decadent and the fried chicken (not much fat, not greasy) was great. The portions were huge and one dinner and appetizer was plenty for two. The service was very attentive and we really enjoyed the meal and the concert.
Fun place to hang
I went with a friend to see Toad the Wet Sprocket and we ate at Brooklyn Bowl. The food was decent and the service could've been better but it might be because there was a concert there and it was a little crowded. I would still eat there again. It was a cool environment.
Train wreck 100% comped!
The kitchen had multiple problems and could not keep up with the food. This, the server explained, was due to the special menu and its items being renamed for the event. Our order came out 2 hours after we ordered it. BUT, the Brooklyn Bowl did absolutely everything in its power to make sure we were happy. They comped our entire meal, including mimosas! AND, to keep our tummies happy, they brought out free french fries and AMAZING brownie sundaes. Luckily, my group of four had no other plans that afternoon, so we just kept on visiting and being pampered by our very apologetic waitress. Still left very happy, and extremely full. It was obviously a fluke incident and we will definitely come back!
A pricing TGIF restuarnt with bowling and local dubstep bands. Took the GF for her birthday and 3 other friends. Service was not all that great if your patient and like to stack castle cards and perform brain surgery this might be up your alley.. had the bus boy serving us than the waiter than the bus boy and than the waiter again to have the waiter give me attitude and tell me "hey can you like help me out and flag me down when you need something". Sure pal. Would i recommend it probably but to my boss ;)
Food was EXCELLENT, very fun place. Will return many times. Only 2 minor complaints. Server was great, very attentive, until it was time for check. We waited approx 15 min, then has to ask another server to find our check. Lighting was very low, which made it necessary for everyone to use their phone to read the menu.
Great food, expensive beer
I came for the Fried Chicken, which lives up to its reputation as some of the best in the country. However, the Bowl tries to be too many things to too many people and does none of them well. The $12.50 draft beers (Blue Moon) are way too pricey, even for Vegas.
My son and I were excited about going to the Brooklyn Bowl. We had read up on it and were excited about the concept of bowling, a concert and the ability to eat all in one place. However the day that patronized the establishment the bowling alley was closed. They were having a B boy competition sponsored by Red Bull which my son enjoyed . The food was a great DISAPPOINTMENT. Their website stated the food was "gourmet status". However, it was extremely overpriced BAR FOOD. Although the fried chicken, what their known for, was hot and fresh it had the taste of a frozen Banquet TV Dinner. The mashed potatoes were cold and the collard greens were chewy. I was very disappointed and probably won't return.
Prime Location on Vegas Strip
Brooklyn Bowl is mostly "A la carte" so it can get pricey. The food is delicious and the servers are friendly. It's a great hot spot to visit on the Vegas strip @The Linq near the Flamingo. It's also close to the newest Vegas attraction "the High Roller" observation ferris wheel. For bowling, music, food, and prime location, this place is it, but you will pay for the convenience.
Wanted to check out the Linq area of the Strip and see a country group play at the Brooklyn Bowl. So we arrived early to have dinner. The ambiance was uniquely appealing. I thought the bowling sounds would be overwhelming and it was just the opposite. Service was fantastic and the two salads we selected we'd both order again. Cocktails were good (average price for the Strip) but a little lacking to us on the light beer options. They only offer tap beers and their brand selection for the light beer could have been a little more mainstream for our liking. Overall, I eat here again and try some of their other menu items that sounded delicious.
Going Down HIll
Unfortunately, like many restaurants that open up strong, this one has gone downhill rapidly. The calamari was not just rubber-band like but fishy as well. Ugh! The drinks are expensive and a bit stingy in the pour. At least they still don't measure. But for $12 per, come-on give me a buzz. Still good service, but not as attentive as when it first opened.
Not just a venue...
I came to Brooklyn Bowl with the specific intention of having dinner, not for the bowling or live music. The does not take a back seat to the entertainment & completely stands on its own! Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious: Rock & Roll Fries to start, then the Pulled Pork and Mac & Cheese as entrees. For our Mac & Cheese, we added the optional smoked chicken, artichokes & olives, and it perfectly rounded out the dish. We dined early on a Saturday at 6PM & the first random band on stage was a bit loud at first, but the next act was much better on the noise level & made it easier to talk to the other person at your table. All in all, it was a wonderful experience & I'll definitely be back.
