Don't 300 – I met a group there to go bowling of course. I was the first one there. I put our name on the list and the attendant said it would be 45 min. wait. I said wow that's a long time! When the group got there we realized we had 2 more than originally planned(Total 8). I went back to ask if it was ok if we added to more to the group and that we wanted to go ahead and 2 lanes instead of 1. The attendant said well, it will be one more hour wait for the second lane. But , you can go to the private bowling room and it's only $100/hr. I explained to the group, and evryone agreed it would faster to go in the VIP room. Everything seemed to work out fine. We had our own server for drinks and food. Just wish it would have cost a little less to go bowling. Never knew a bowling alley could be so upscale??
Price: RIPPED-OFF – The bowling lanes look nice. The price is somewhat ripoffs. The game costs you $7.00. The bowling shoes rental are somewhat ripoffs that costs nearly $5.00. Believe it or not, a coke (coca-cola) drink costs itself $3.25 and a beer costs $5.00 to $7.00. The total of two games and rental shoes are $17.00 PER person, that times 4 people that is too way profit for 300. I wont go back there again. Two games with rental shoes for $10 is VERY GOOD DEAL. Sorry, 300!!! I miss the old business before 300 came in.
Horrible Bowling Alley – The lady and I went to 300 to try something new from our usual bowling alley and were utterly disappointed. We first got our lane and was greeted by our server. We ordered food and drinks and that's where the service ended. We started bowling and 1 hour (4 games) later, 1 of our entrees come out. It struck me why our food took so long. It must be really hard to place slices of tomato with cheese on top of bread and heat. Our drinks were never refilled at this point and we didn't even have silverware to eat. I'm not even quiet sure the food was good as we were both starving at this point. We finish our current game each and that when decide we had enough. But wait, our other entree didn't even come out yet. I insisted to don't even worry about the food to the waitress and just close out my tab so that we could just leave. The waitress takes my card and comes back. The bill was about $90 for the two of us... We were charged 8 games extra. So after another 15 minutes of waiting to figure out how to reverse charges, we were able to leave. If you are looking for a bowling alley to have fun, go try somewhere else and save yourself 2-3 dollars PER game. This place is not as "upscale" as it seems.
great place – I took wife and friends to 300 for my wifes 30th birthday. The food, service and athmospher was great. The music was also perfect for our gathering. Our server chrystal was very attentive to our needs. we still cant stop talking about how much fun we all had.
Top of the line lanes but not as well staffed – We hired a birthday party package encouraged by the unique features advertised on the web and sleek looks of the remodeled venue. The bottom line is that 300 failed to deliver.
We started to experience 300's reckless party planning soon after we showed up with our guests. Birthday party displays and many other features weren't delivered as promised or simply weren't delivered at all. Also the poor service had quickly begun irritating most of our guests (it would take them ages to deliver anything from soft drinks).
The good thing about that night was being able to validate to ourselves that old premise by which it is service oriented people what makes all the difference when it comes down to choosing the right venue for spending a special occasion. It becomes evident that 300 Houston has chosen to save in staff the money it well has spent in the sleek appearance of its venue. We hope that they are able to balance this out although we don't plan to come back.
I give it a TEN! – Wow... a bowling center with style. It was great food, drinks and service. I will return!!! We had champagne bottle service next to our lane while having crab cakes to start and then we shared lamb chops!!!! i didnt know if i was at a bowling ally or downtown. you have to check this out
Probably Won't Go Back – My wife and I ended up at 300 because the bowling center nearest to our house was full with birthday parties. When we arrived at 300 we placed our name on a waiting list and took a seat at the bar. The bar was very nice and the bartender was very helpful and attentive. When our names were called we were placed next to a family of 5 who were out for a fun evening. My wife and I were amazed that no one among the 300 staff said a word to the parents about their kids routinely running onto the lanes and falling down. We bowled 3 games (the lanes were dry, but that was probably due to the fact that kids are allowed to use the lanes as a Slip 'N Slide) and were ready to leave, so I went to the desk to pay. The people at the desk informed me that I should have met a personal attendant (waiter) who would settle up with me and that I should wait by the lane until that person arrived. So I sat for 10 minutes until I was presented with a bill and another 5 or so while they ran my credit card. We understand that places can have off nights and that they may have been understaffed. So we very well may end up there again to give it another shot. But the price per game isn't very reasonable (we spent roughly $80 for 6 games and 4 beers) and the big screens at the end of the lanes that blast the latest Disney "pop sensation" while blinding you with strobe lights on the approach (we were there at 5pm on a Saturday, so it wasn't a Rock 'n Bowl situation) have kept us away so far.
Big party fun! – I just went to a bowling party at 300 houston last night with my friends company and had a blast! The food was better than what you would expect by far for a bowling alley, the lanes modern and cool and VIP service with our own break out room with food and wait staff! Totally cool Bowling experience!
Once was enough for me... – Awful service. Overpriced. Food was just OK... Did I mention AWFUL service?
At the time we were there it was not busy at all. We had a small party during the day. The bartender was very slow and chose to socialize most of the time rather than take orders. When he did decide to actually do some work, he would ask for orders then proceed to serve other people and then forget the orders and have to ask again after he had served everyone else who just walked up to the bar. This wasn't just me, at least five or six people in our group commented on it and all said they would not return.
