For those who haven’t been to Aiea Bowl lately they don’t know what their missing. Located on 99-115 Aiea Heights Drive in Aiea, Aiea Bowl is a great place for the seasoned bowler, kids, nightlife lovers, and foodies. Aiea Bowl and its 24 lanes of bowling is open from 9 am to 2 am Monday thru Sundays and 9 am to 1 am on Wednesdays.
Aiea Bowl is unlike other bowling alleys on the island, thanks to brothers Gregg and Glenn Uyeda who bought Aiea Bowl in 2005 and completely remodeled the facility. From the new computerized bowling scoreboards to the inside of the bathrooms, this is not your dirty old bowling alley. In fact Aiea Bowl is clean, innovative, comes with amazing food at their in house restaurant called The Alley, and features cosmic bowling with loud dance music and black lights on some special event nights. Aiea Bowl also has a full bar for those 21 and over.
“Moonlight Mondays” and “Her Way Thursdays” are 2 events that go on weekly. They start at 9:30 pm for cosmic bowling and feature drink specials, giveaways, Djs, and emcees. Event nights here turn into a nightclub with bowling. This place gets packed and has become the new “place to be” on the leeward side during event nights.
For me, the best thing about Aiea Bowl is their in house restaurant The Alley that serves high quality and delicious comfort food. They have plate lunch dishes gourmet style, sandwiches and burgers, salads, homemade pizza, fresh baked desserts, and they even serve breakfast. The Alley is open from 7 am to 2 am Monday thru Thursdays and Sundays and 7 am to 3 am on Fridays and Saturdays.
The last time I was there I wolfed down their local moco with flame broiled choice ground hamburger meat, over-easy eggs, homemade brown gravy, brown rice, and macaroni salad. I also had a side of their crunchy garlic fries to go with it. Honestly, I think their food is to die for and my boyfriend even caught me licking the gravy off my plate. The portions here are enormous and their dishes will delight your taste buds. Don’t leave The Alley without trying one of their desserts. I recommend their cake-like blueberry cream cheese scones. Have one and you’ll be addicted!
I actually go to Aiea Bowl for the food at The Alley. For me the bowling is an extra perk. For more information call 808-488-6854 (bowling), 808-486-3499 (restaurant), or check out www.aieabowl.com.
