South Carolina’s first Stars and Strikes Getaway-n-play opens Saturday. The Georgia-based entertainment company has brought its signature family entertainment center to 4570 Ladson Road.
The 57,000 square foot facility was previously a Kmart. Now the space is filled with an arcade comprised of 120 video games, two separate bowling alleys, bumper cars, a two-story laser tag area and a full-service bar surrounded by big screen TVs and a 7/10 Grille restaurant.
Scott Harris, director of marketing for Stars and Strikes, said the restaurant has “surprisingly good food,” that’s not your typical bowling alley cuisine.
“Our chef has really taken our menu to the next level,” Harris said.
The 7/10 Grille will serve American grill food including burgers, pizza and wings but also pastas, salads and artisan sandwiches.
Catering is available for corporate events using a meeting room that seats up to 200 people.
Harris said the grand opening celebration will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m Saturday, Nov. 17 with $2 bowling and several buy-one-get-one free games, there will be a live DJ party at 8 p.m.
Harris said the response from the Summerville community has been “amazing.” When he first announced on social media that the Georgia based entertainment company was coming to Summerville, Harris said his post got 8,000 shares.
Stars and Strikes has locations in Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama and now their first in South Carolina. Harris said most businesses would be drawn to the downtown Charleston area but Stars and Strikes chose Summerville because they wanted to be near families.
“We want to be where the families live,” Harris said.
