Best Bowling Alley

Wagner’s Lanes and The Complexx (2159 Brackett Ave., Eau Claire) has been a longtime favorite for sports and entertainment, clad with beverages and grub, home to 26 lanes bowling lanes and tons of leagues, reigning as the top favorite since 2010. Bowl Winkle’s (1616 N Clairemont, Eau Claire) is no stranger to ranking in this category though. Placing near the top in every year of Best Of voting, Bowl Winkle’s houses 24 lanes and is known for its Long Island iced teas served up in quart-sized jars. Falls Bowl (9 W Columbia St., Chippewa Falls) is a family favorite for bowling with its 20 lanes snagging a top-three spot for the second time. –McKenna Scherer
