  • Opened in 1927 Patterson is the oldest operating duckpin bowling alley in the nation! 12 Lanes (6 on each level), and BYOB (beer & wine only), on the second floor. A must-visit Balmore experience.
  • Grab a case of beer at the Loading Dock, have a pizza pie delivered from Tutti Gusti, and have a convo with Chooch.
  • I never heard of duckpin bowling until I came here. It was fascinating! Also, I got to help fix the pin setter, as they are original and tend to break often. Pretty unique experience.
  • Went here for my 10,000th day. Old school and a bit run down but that's the charm of it. BOYB and food.
  • A little expensive, but a super fun local hangout. BYOB.
  • It's easy to enjoy bowling, but there are always mechanical problems here. $25pp for a two hour lane rental with shoes.
  • Old, just about everything is broken, rude staff. Still fun somehow....maybe it's the BYOB.
  • Awful equipment. Same as service
  • Duck-pin bowling Baltimore style, BYOB.
  • Worst experience! Rented for 2 hours for a work party. 2 of the 6 lanes worked and the owner didn't believe we should receive a discount because we were still able use the space just not the lanes!
  • BEWARE of the unposted "sitting fee" if you're not bowling and just watching your friends!
