The casino games at Hugo's have been replaced with pool and arcade games.

You may not have heard that Hugo's, the boutique bowling-alley-meets-restaurant on the South Hill, changed owners last summer, but when you walked in, you probably noticed a big change. There are no more card tables, and the casino element has been replaced by pool tables, pinball, skee ball and a couple of arcade games.

The new ownership team of husband-and-wife team Tyson and Shelayna Skidmore and brothers Chris and Alex Schwartz has also revamped the extensive food menu, ranging from simple bar snacks like tater tots ($5) to a baseball-cut New York steak ($18). There's a 50-seat dining room next to the full bar; the entire menu can also be delivered to your cushy bowling lane.

Hugo's now offers half-price bowling after 9 pm from Sunday to Thursday, and offers a happy hour from 3 to 6 pm Monday through Thursday, as well as all day Sunday.
