Will food be available for purchase while bowling?

During restaurant hours, all food and drink options available at PrimeTime Grille will also be available for bowlers.  We will also have a snack bar available for our bowlers' convenience.

Is this really happening?!?

We know there have been years of speculation about bringing bowling back to Ottawa.  We understand there may be skepticism, but we assure you that this is the real deal!  We are beyond excited to bring this venue to Ottawa!  Please do your part to support us and help us be successful, so we can continue to serve Ottawa and the surrounding area for generations to come.  See you in August!
