The older lady at the front is pretty mean from the moment u walk in the door! Get rid of her! The owner guy is Cool as a Fan!

Love this place! Has one bad thing though and that is your ball often double dribbles (bounce twise). They don't really know why. But this place is a high scoring house! It'll turn a 175 bowler to a 195 bowler quick. Nice service and food

I was raised in this bowling Alley! If my mom wasn't bowling, My grandparents were!Then I grew up and bowled there. I know the Family!! They are truly A good Family and mean no harm. Mike has to be tough Because i am SURE So many try to run over him and take advantage. You must ALL Know, running a business as a bowling ally That you HAVE to have a NO nonsense rule. Whether its For the kids, teenagers or adults!! Being Rude is NOT the WAY to handle things, but MAYBE he was having bad day That day and we having no clue what's up! We just assume He is an rude butt head...I haven't seen or walked into the Alley in 20 years...I am so sorry to hear that it has gone so Out of control...it breaks my heart Really to hear So many Are disappointed in Mike and how he runs a business. I Would love to believe his being rude and uncaring actions Came with good reason...I am not defending him I am just Not understanding all the hate! If you don't like the place, Don't go back, I don't believe there is a need for slander.. And I also don't believe because YOU had a bad experience There, that it gives you the right to shut some body down.. What is good for you may not be good for someone else! All this complaining makes me think they are dealing with a few spoiled people who are used to getting their way and used to being heard and obeyed.. Trying to shut someone down to prove a point....you MUST be really bored...I honestly feel like that if indeed Mike did treat you all here the same, he must have done it with good reason..I know a lot of rude owners! And they would not be where they are today if they did not stand their ground... Again, NOT taking up for Mike, just giving a different point of view. Just let people be who they are going to be and go somewhere else to bowl if you guys are unhappy with the Thomas Family...I hope you all find peace with in yourself along the way

I have been here a few times and i will never go again. It's not bad durring the week but on the weekends their are too many young punks there who are trying to be gangster. (havn't seen any of them ever bowl or do anything besides gather in crowds and do god knows what in the center of them so don't know why they are even there) the owner needs to really start cracking down on these 'thugs' before they chase away his business. Also, the 'kids' in the front are very rude. Honestly, i wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

Going there tonight will be back with the verdict :)

To Ten Pin, sounds like you dont know your head from your tush. before you go talking smack about people at all star get your facts straight and have proof. Other than that be a man and come and speak to someone that runs the business before you run your mouth about a lot of lies. And another thing learn how to bowl.

Doesn't matter how nice you try to make the inside look if you have poor service and treat all customers like crap.

NO PRO SHOP now that is bad.

Lanes were in good condition, food was good, beer was cold. The manager was helpful with our questions, but the kid at the counter was rude and acted like we were bothering him. I've met the owners and they're good people. Some of there employees, that's another story. Would recommend to anyone that was looking for house to bowl in.

I have to say that All Star Lanes has changed a lot over the years, we have remodeled the whole facility. Have brand new carpet, tv's setup everywhere in the bowling center. Remodeled the women's and men's bathrooms and the lounge. All Star Lanes is now the place to go have fun throughout the week.

Absolutely the worst customer service you will ever see. Lady at snack bar was friendly but the front counter "kids" were rude and arrogant. Not to mention the owner is a complete jerk. He acts like you are an inconvenience to him. Don't waste your time or your money.

Had been at hotel, due to work wanted to do something different so went to All Star Bowling Lanes. Young fellow working said they only took cash, and we had to pay before we bowled. So we paid for two games and shoes with cash from their ATM machine they had on site. Met people bowling on the side of us, fun group. Lanes were slick and pretty. Went play pool after nice pool tables, we then placed money in the jute box, the sound was really low, so my husband asked the young fellow to turn up the music as it was a whisper and he did.

This owner is the rudest guy I've met in a long time. He never smiles, barks every response - even toward children. If they mess something up with your games, don't bother trying to staighten it out - He's right and you're an idiot. When I stated I would never come back, his response was, "Fine, I hope you don't. In fact leave now or I'll call the police." I wasn't yelling or cursing. I can't believe this guy is even in business.

that place has nothing but a bunch of smart mouth, gangsta wanna be kid thugs up there on friday and saturday night. yall talk about it being a 'hangout' but theres more pills and drugs goin through there on a friday and sat night with those kids than u can shake a stick at. the only nights good worth going is when there are leagues going on. the lanes arent bad...im a beginner, im averaging 190's at all star and at holiday lanes. lanes arent hard to figure out, if its freshly oiled, u wont get a whole lot of breaking at the end of the lane so you use less spin, but if they are dried up, u better use less spin or use alot of spin but stand way off in the next lane lol the arrows are there to help u out, the little boards the lanes are made out of are there for a reason too. sometimes just shifting over a few boards and bowling at a different arrow is all u need in order to bowl a good game. and dont expect the lane to be the same after u bowl about 5 or 6 games...the oil gets drier..expecially where the ball breaks. its an ever changing thing in bowling. and when u can coop with all the factors thats when u become a good bowler. two months ago my average was in the 80's. just bowled for fun. since, i have been bowling 3 times a week about 5 games per time..so that about 15 games or more a week. i used to bowl straight and averaged in the 80's, my friend showed me how to put a curve with my wrist, my average went into the 120's, i got my own ball, i started getting in the 160's, now for the last two weeks, i've consistantly been in the 170's to 180's and last friday i bowled a 206..i missed 3 pins...only had 1 frame open the whole game. last night i bowled a 194 then a 196. with time i will get even better. im about to join a league up at all star. if u s*ck at bowling then u shouldnt blame it on the lanes. if u cant bowl an average of 150 and ur saying the lanes are bad...its more than likely ur not a good bowler. if ur average is in the 200's and u cant get that at all stars then yea complain, bc u know what u are talking about. u dont like all stars, dont go there and quit your nagging, plain and simple.

It is a good bowling alley, it just needs to be updated and for the employees to show a little respect to the customers that are coming and helping keep the lanes open.

This center is no worse than most centers. I have been bowling for over 40 years and find this center to be above average in most areas. I have bowled in 4 lane centers to 92 lane centers all over the world and all over the USA. Claude, Mike, Dustin, Addison and all the other employees make this a place to enjoy bowling at for years to come.

Comment Date: 6/9/2009 Name: italianstallion
This center bounces because there is no giving to the foundation under the lanes. It is not forgiving and there should be some play but there is not underneath. This center is a very high scoring house from both sides. Claude is great to his customers and Mike could learn from Claude. People who judge others unfairly are probably disgruntled with themselves first and foremost. There are other centers you can go to and chunck.

This is the worst bowling alley i have ever been to. The owner is very disrespectful and does not like anyone who does not have blong hair and blue eyes, if you kow what i mean. I am from Dallas and was visiting this place while visiting famliy. It is the 21st century and would have thought that by now the stupidity of these types of prejudice acts would have been over.

Worse place in Louisiana. Cater to right handers. No left handers shot. Not only me watched all left handers in house on tourney day, not same shot as righties. Quit bowling in league about 4 yrs ago, now I remember why. Bowl at alley in Bossier and average 50 pins higher. Talked to other lefties on tourney day and all said same :No consistant shot: Ask Jason Couch about difference in lanes, he bowled on both alleys. How can USBC allow something like this? I guarantee you bowl on both alleys in this area and let me know what you think. Also know others who have decided to stay away from All Star lanes. Good luck if you try.

the "bowling alley" used to be a lot better until "the owner" Mike was allowed to run it.. take a poll and the locals will tell you, the alley itself is alright, so is the prices and food, but when it comes to management beware he will ban you for his own personal reasons, not by if you have done anything wrong,, I speak 1st hand.. was a patron for over 25 yrs...now banned for asking a few ?'s about someone..he does seem to dislike the older paying teens...if they go outside to smoke like the older patrons, he will ban them when they come back in...he doesn't seem to understand that a lot of their weekend money comes from older paying teens, they have no local places to "hang" out, so as to stay out of trouble.. The "policemen" he hires is not professionally handling matters either, they will take his "word" with out even listening to the other sides version,,even if it is a parent... he is very verbally abusive towards the older teens..south Shreveport needs another "local place" where management understands paying teens..I know of a boy that has saved a few lives up there from them letting underage people drink, leave drunk after being a patron there (if that person had a wreck they could be liable) but he does not seem to like good samaritans, only people over 21 or so.

kellee i dont know how you bowl or what your average is but for the lanes to bounce like you said something must be wrong cause i averaged 220 there with an ease so i dont no but anyways give it another shot cause it is a very good center

i have to disagree with the person from Hot Springs. i live in bossier city and i have bowled at All Star many times and i HATE the bowling alley. when u throw ur ball it bounces cause there is not enough support under the lanes. i just bowled there about a month ago and bowled horrible but at any other bowling alley i bowl wonderful and most of Don Carters lanes s*ck...especially Don Carters in Baton Rouge...Worse lanes i ever bowled on!!!!
