A great old bowling alley that you can tell still services hardcore bowlers - smoke scented undertones - it reminds me of similar places I went as a kid. It also houses a great bar and diner in true old school bowling alley style right in the middle of two sets of lanes. Definite must for the nostalgic bowler.

If you're hungry, make sure the amazing diner is open because you're not going to want to pass-up the chance to eat one of the most amazing burgers in the city! If you're an old school bowler, a Lebowski freak, or are looking to have lunch at one of the most authentic diners in the surrounding cities, Madison Bowl is the place for both.

Great bowling alley - possibly the best in town. Why: It's totally retro and awesome, everyone is super friendly, it's open almost all hours, has a full divey bar, and a one of the best diners in town out the back. This place is an essential visit!

Cheap bowling, full bar with craft beer, open 24 hours on weekends, I hear the diner is incredible, always a good crowd. I also love that the place is in a weird 60s time warp.

This place is awesome! They have an old bar that probably hasn't been update since the '70s (except for the music and selection of local craft beer). It's all very old school and authentic. I've also heard that the diner here is one of the best in the city!

Good ole' Madison Bowl... this feels how you want a bowling alley to feel - like nothing has changed since 1996 (maybe earlier). They have a full bar, they have cheap bowling, they have a vending machine... great spot! and close to a good BBQ joint, the BBQ Revue (https://roadtrippers.com/us/cincinnati-oh/food-drink/barbecue-revue)

Authentic is how I'd describe it. I've been bowling at this place as long as I could walk and I don't think it's changed a bit since I was a younging. Prices are good and staff is friendly.
