    Bayside bowl hosted our dinner rehearsal and it was insanely fun! The food was great, the service was awesome, and Dawn made sure we were well taken care of. We had so much fun we didn't even realize the time and shut the place down with them. We LOVED it and our guests loved it. Would HIGHLY recommend!

    Wow. I couldn’t have even imagined how perfect this venue would be for us. We held our reception in the original section of Bayside. Perfect space for a live band, dancing, and bowling! We had about 160 people and definitely had enough room for more. It was such an amazing, fun night. My favorite compliment from a guest ....”I was having a tough time picturing what a reception would be like at a bowling alley. This turned out incredible. I’ve never seen anything like it.” The food was so perfect (get the late night pizza!) for a more casual approach....and it was so nice to just have everything provided by the venue (hello simple planning). If you book this section of Bayside you’ll definitely be looking at more of a “party” type wedding reception as there is no space for a sit down dinner (exactly how we wanted it and I felt guests really got to interact more with each other and us).

    Okay. The real reason I’m writing this review (I have only written one other one in my life). Micaela. She’s the Event Coordinator and she’s amazing. She goes above and beyond. She gives honest feedback when you ask for it (in the most polite and helpful way ever). She really helped us refine our food order to make sure we didn’t order wayyyy too much. She let us know what works well in the space. She made sure to set up a meeting to run through each hour of the event and create a timeline for us. She’s funny. She didn’t forget a thing (I would’ve forgotten half the stuff she reminded us about, ha). She doesn’t just charge your credit card and run away. She cares.

    I’d give five stars over and over.

    Thank you Micaela and Bayside!!!!!

    We booked Bayside Bowl as our wedding venue... that's right! That place can throw a kick ass wedding! We loved Bayside Bowl so much, we booked it before their amazing new addition was even completed. When we saw the designs and spoke with Micaela (their Event Manager), there wasn't a doubt in our minds that Bayside was the place for us! Micaela was wonderful from the very beginning. She worked closely with us from start to finish. Everyone at Bayside was such a joy to work with - we truly could not imagine a more perfect experience or wedding.

    We had our ceremony on the roof deck in front of the Airstream. The staff transformed the Airstream from a taco truck into a beautiful background. We used the mezzanine for our cocktail hour (and ping pong) before moving down to the bowling lanes where we had a live band, delicious cocktails, a taco extravaganza and eight private lanes for bowling.

    Our friends and family keep saying it was the best wedding they have ever been to. If you're up for something different, we HIGHLY recommend booking Bayside Bowl - whatever your vision is, they will work with you to make it happen.

    What's even better is anytime we want to re-live our wedding experience, all we have to do is go back to Bayside, order some tacos, listen to the awesome music and pretend we are experiencing our wedding day all over again.

    We cannot say enough about how amazing Micaela and the staff of Bayside were leading up to and during our big day! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
