Practically a mall in itself, this place has everything you ever wanted in a bowling alley. And then some. – The Theme
They're dead serious about this "palace" business. Not only does it have a "Knights Meeting Room" and a "Jester's Meeting Room"; the Palace also has "Kings" and "Queens" restrooms. Hey, where else would you rather sit on the throne?
Does Size Matter?
If bigger is better, the Palace would surely be the best because it does nothing half-way. Its 64 lanes are more than twice as many as some alleys. From The Final Frontier video arcade (over two dozen games) to its spacious pro shop, everything here is on the grand scale.
On a Serious Roll
Although the Palace's advertising stresses a fun partying atmosphere, it has a more businesslike side as well. The Palace is proud to note it has been "featured on national television" as the host of PBA tour events. One room contains portraits of its former champions like Guppy Troup.
Awesome! – I grew up in a bowling family and have been bowling in leagues since I was 13. I've probably bowled in 30-40 bowling centers including some of the Don Carter Centers in Florida, and I can honestly say nothing compares to the Palace. It's the only bowling center I've ever been to where you don't have to sit next to strangers at a scoring table. The lanes are great and well maintained, the place is clean and friendly despite its size. The Sports bar is incredible - the pizza is excellent, and I absolutely love the Music Bowling sound system. The whole place is just a class act and totally awesome! I wish more bowling centers were like this!
My kind of place! – The Palace is a great place to bowl and meet my friends. Sometimes we meet at the Major League Sports Bar and watch baseball or football. Its always clean, and Ive never had any problems with any of the staff. The new lanes are great, and I can bowl anytime, something I cant do anywhere else in Columbus!
Palace in a class by itself – I've been bowling at the Palace since it opened, and other bowling centers aren't even close in terms of customer service, cleanliness, and overall bowling environment. There's a good reason it wins all the awards - the Palace is better than all the other centers. Ignore the poor reviews that have been posted - probably posted by jealous competitors. All I can say is check out the Palace, then check out the other bowling centers in Columbus, and make up your own mind.
