White Bear Bowl is located in a fairly convenient area in White Bear Lake. It has a lot of lanes, a bar, and food service. If you're looking for an inexpensive night out, it's a decent place to go. Bowling is cheap and it's generally not too crowded. However, the place is showing it's age and could really use some sprucing up. The bathrooms are not very nice at all and the whole place could use some work. I also don't like all of the smoke that permeates the entire place. When I leave there, I feel like I need a shower to get the smell out of my clothes. It's an ok place to go for a few games of bowling or for teenagers to hang out with their friends, though. It beats driving 20 minutes or more to another bowling alley.
