Franklin Lanes: Where Friends Meet Since 1942
Franklin Lanes, which opened in 1942 (we had to receive special permission to finish construction due to World War II), is a family-owned 20-lane bowling center renowned for blending tradition with modernity. Known for its vintage retro feel, the center has maintained its nostalgic charm. Franklin Lanes has been a cornerstone of entertainment and community spirit in Evansville’s west side for generations.
The popular 11th Frame Bar & Grill inside Franklin Lanes, with its cozy atmosphere and a mix of classic and contemporary elements, exemplifies this blend. The 11th Frame Bar & Grill at Franklin Lanes is celebrated for its diverse and tantalizing menu, featuring standout dishes like savory Stromboli, juicy cheeseburgers, exceptional hot ham and cheese, alongside an enticing selection of adult beverages including large margaritas, over 40 different $1 Jello shots, and sizable beer towers. This eatery merges the nostalgic charm of a 1940s era jukebox with contemporary comforts, perfectly capturing Franklin Lanes’ dedication to blending the old with the new.
