Ten Pin Eatery has officially open its doors for dining, play, and all things fun! The brand new 25,000 square-foot entertainment complex at Cape Cod Mall began welcoming customers at 3 PM Monday afternoon. Regular hours begin as of Tuesday.
Ten Pin Eatery is a joint venture between two long-time Cape Cod businesses – Chapin’s Restaurant Group and Ryan’s. It features a 300-seat restaurant and bar area, more than twenty TVs and several large projection screens, 8 lanes of ‘Ten Pin’ bowling, 3 additional private bowling lanes, a Cape Cod-themed laser tag arena, an arcade area and a VIP lounge for special events.
“We initially conceived of the project back in 2016 so to see it finally come to life is rewarding,” said Michael Crowley, General Manager of Ryan’s and one of the principals of Ten Pin Eatery. “It’s been a collaborative process between the team at Ryan’s and Chapin’s every step of the way. We’ve also had the tremendous support of Cape Cod Mall, Simon Property Group and the Town of Barnstable. We especially want to thank Mike Santos of Apcon Inc. and the many, many people who worked on the project along the way. We’re thrilled to finally take down the construction barricade and invite everyone inside.”
The interiors feature a clean classic look, complemented by the warmth and texture of stone and wood. Several local artisans were commissioned to design installations. Steve Swain of The Frying Pan Gallery in Wellfleet created a grand chandelier for the main entrance, as well as several wall installations featuring his signature steel fish. The bowling lanes are flanked by two huge murals depicting the Sagamore bridge at night and the Sandwich Boardwalk, both photographs taken by Mike Bows of Plymouth. The lanes also feature a blown glass showpiece of six pins and a bowling ball created by Bryan Randa of Randa Glass in Sandwich.
“The venue is everything we hoped for and more,” said Jimmy Mullen, General Manager of Chapin’s Restaurant and one of the principals of Ten Pin. “We wanted to create an entertainment concept that was unlike anything the Cape had ever seen, one that would be as suitable for families as it was for couples and corporate groups.”
Ten Pin’s restaurant and bar are under the helm of Dennis-based Chapin’s Restaurant Group. The menu, developed by Chapin’s Executive Chef Kevin Violet, features upscale pub food and several of the favorites from the Chapin’s menu. Burgers and pizza are available, as well as more upscale entrees like Lobster Pot Pie and Charbroiled Steak Tips. The 42-seat bar features a wide selection of local beers and wines, as well as specialty drinks like the Pin Deck Passion, Kingpin and Ten Pin Mojito. Dozens of TVs flank the walls for easy viewing of sporting events.
A VIP lounge houses its own bar, along with three private bowling lanes and upscale lounge furniture. The space can accommodate up to fifty people and is available for private bookings.
The other eleven lanes of Ten Pin bowling feature a state-of-the-art scoring system and the ability to order off the menu from the lanes. The arcade area features more than 50 games, ranging from nostalgic favorites like Pac-Man and Space Invaders to newer releases like Monster Drop Extreme and Hot Shot. Anchoring the gaming area is a multi-level Cape Cod themed laser tag arena.
Next month, the venue will expand even further with the addition of Escape Rooms and Virtual Reality Gaming. Those concepts will be located directly across the hall from Ten Pin in the space that formerly housed Ryan’s Amusements.
Ten Pin Eatery is located in the Macy’s Mens wing of Cape Cod Mall, 769 Iyannough Road, Hyannis. Operational hours are Sunday through Thursday from 9 am – Midnight, Friday & Saturday from 9 AM – 1AM (food service begins daily at 11:30 AM).
