Diamond Strike Lanes (Pompano Beach)

Posted on May 15th, 2011 · American Other

***** Diamond Strike Lanes, 2200 North Federal Highway, Pompano Beach, Florida 33062, (954) 941-0968.

Diamond Strike Lanes is a “bowling alley” located in Pompano Beach. It first opened for business in 1958. The last time I bowled—I’m gonna figure 14 years ago and maybe I clocked in with a 117 game. To be perfectly honest with you, I haven’t paid any real attention to the “bowling game” since Dick Weber and Ray Bluth were tearing up the lanes. For you youngsters out there…that was a long-long time ago.

Q: So Jeff, if bowling isn’t your game, what were you doing at Diamond Strike on Saturday night May 14th at 8:45 pm.
A: I went to Diamond Strike to checkout The Beatlemaniax a local Beatles- tribute band…who were playing in Diamond’s “Sports Bar & Grill”—it’s located inside of the bowling alley. On weekends, various local bands work the room. There is no table service—order food at the bar and it’s delivered to your table. On a crowded night (like last night) this is an absolute nightmare—borderline chaos and confusion.

The results– The Beatlemaniax are a terrific tribute act. Great- Beatles’ covers. As for the Sports Bar… limited menu of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, wings. You can check www.diamondstrikelanes.com for menu/prices/hours. As for the “sampled” cheeseburger, french fries, turkey club, onion rings—nothing too terrible, but if The Beatlemaniax weren’t performing, this joint wouldn’t be at the top of my sports bar list.

Q: Jeff, would you go back to this Sports Bar?
A: There is no charge to watch bands. So yes I would go back to watch “certain” bands. Since this is a business, food and beverages should be purchased. As a stand alone restaurant without “entertainment”—let’s just say, I’ve eaten better stuff.

All in all…The Beatlemaniax made for a fun evening.
