Great place to take your family or group for bowling. Nick the owner is very appreciative in helping you with arrangements. Bowled New Year's Eve and had a great time. Very, very affordable! Hamburgers at snack bar we're very tasty.

It's gotten rediculous on price


Nice place. A previous review spews falsity. They are not a cash only establishment. Took my card just fine.

Human Citizen

The prices seemed a bit high, and i'm pretty sure that pizza was frozen.

Justin Oxentine

9 year old sons first time bowling. He loved it.

Went for something to do on a hot summer day with kids. The temperature in the building was 85 and it was 83 outside. When I went to the guy that works behind the counter and asked if he could adjust the temperature he said the air is on believe it or not. He showed no concern and never apologized. I will not be going back to this bowling alley and will take my money to a business that shows they care about their customer.

Dennis Brannon

It's like going back in time when you walk in the front door. I took two 12 year oldS here and they had a blast. Reminds me of the bowling alleys of the late 70s and early 80s.

Samuel Hensley

Neat old bowling alley with a good vibe, kind employees, and decent bowling alley food.

Rebecca McGrade

The guys working were extremely rude. We brought a coupon that was printed from Ingles and they refused to take it. When I went to the counter to ask for assistance because the pins weren't cleared after a bowl he rudely commented that he couldn't translate what I was saying. He then walked to our lane saw the problem and walked away without another word. We will not be returning.

Great staff, clean lanes. Was a fun time in an old school place. Nothing fancy, just a good clean bowling alley like days of old. A small arcade, a good lil diner type spot to eat with good food, fun atmosphere. Go there and enjoy :)

Tracy Alves

Local bowling alley, average at best

Frank Roviello

Shawn Lapping

Andy Stu

Nice easy to play very nice staff and pretty good food

Andrea Amador

terrible service. The children were charged as adults. I do not recommend it

Wilson Bunn

It was expensive and low quality. The available balls and shoes were terrible and pins rarely reset as they were supposed to. Management offered a discount rate for 3rd game and then required full price for our whole party upon our exit. Will never visit again


M. S.

Old school with great staff, food & drinks! It's a local treasure, Love it!

Alex Leatherwood

Great people

Beth Melton

Our Lane kept needing to be reset as the balls would get stuck and not come back. We needed bummers because we had kids and they were reluctant to let us use them because they break easily and are expensive to repair BUT! They wouldn't allow us to have a Lane for just the children. We were asked to bowl "carefully". At the end of it all, we paid top dollar for a rundown bowling alley with little atmosphere and gruff staff.

wesley higgenbottom

Duncan Jones

Great place for families or even a first date. Would recommend.

Vanda Monae

Food is garbage. Music was terible (old old country). They proble havent bought new shoes in over a decade. If you are african american do not go here . you will be treating like absolute trash. The balls kept getting stuck. The pins would bounce into other lanes. The lanes itself just need new floor boards. Please do your self a favor and go to any other bowling ally this place is by far the worst bowling ally ive ever been to ever.and to top it off. You pay at the end and for 2 adults and a child to play 2 games. It was 76$ plus shoes. Or maybe we just got tge black price. To go with all the dirty looks

Amanda Stansbury

Had a great time with kids and family, but we'd have fun anywhere. I was highly surprised by how expensive it was... 2 games for 2 adults , 3 kids had 1 game... 2 coupons for 1 free game each, $44- crazy! I had my sons birthday party with 18 people and it cost around $75 in Brevard. There is no price list, they just say to pay when you finish. Pisgah lanes is where I'll head next time.

William Bowers

I want to go bowling one day what can I say.

jameseric worthen

Hops Miller

love playing pool very clean helpful

Geovanna Lopez

If I could give 0 stars I would. Girl at register was so rude huffing and puffing all the way to the register when we asked for money back because people in our group changed there minds about bowling their ( it was full ) and we decided to go to asheville location! The men behind her were rude ass well giving bad looks as well when we asked politely for a return do not come here !

Konrad Schlagmuller

holly blue

These guys are always so friendly they go above and beyond the call of niceness

Amy B

No wonder this place is going down. Tells you one price then charges you a totally different price. And everything kept freezing up.

Jason Wightman

Showed up Easter Sunday around 6pm with a large group celebrating an special occasion and they were closing early due to the Holiday. They saw our large group with lots of little kids and decided to stay open for us. Very nice and gracious people run this place. Will be back for sure. Also they play real old time country music which was awesome.

Philip Green

Average small town bowling alley. Old & run down. Needs a renovation. Nasty bowling balls anf shoes.

Ka Sa

The place between the bowling alley and entry way is not clearly demarked. I myself fell and had hairline fractures in my knees. I have seen several people fall or trip this way. Asked them about premise insurance for medical pay and they simply ignored us ! We will never go back there again.

Sean Karan

Family fun

John R Popson

Had a great time with the family. Met some good people and Nick makes a great burger.

Lucas Kochek

Poor experience. Pros: - Bowling was fun Cons: - poor ball selection - only accepts cash - very expensive - lanes weren’t oiled well It’s the only alley in Hendersonville, so if you absolutely feel the urge to go bowling, it’s all you got. But if you can go to another town, I wouldn’t go here.

D Drake

Great family spot.

Delthia Gilbert

Chuck Puett

Nice lanes, don't know why it wasn't more crowded! Friendly staff, too!

Ashley Wallace

Teak Lastein

Very fun. Great family fun. Also, monday league night. Serve beer there if you want as well. Cheaper than some bars here.

Susan Allen

Jacklynn Flood

Fun place for the family. They don't have changing tables in the restrooms for smaller children. But they do have a good beer.

Bridget Williams

SAVE YOUR MONEY AND GO ELSEWHERE FOR FAMILY FUN!! We are from out of town traveling with our 6 children. We have 4 young children and two older children with special needs and had to demand bumpers because the staff did not think that we "needed" them. The staff pointed at the younger children and said "They don't need the bumpers. Can you not share one lane." When we left, we didn't realize it was a "cash only" establishment so we had to utilize the ATM. The two staff members rudely remarked, "Now he doesn't even have cash". This is after they told us the price was $4/ game. The final price ended up to be $64. They failed to mention the price of shoes. This experience was simply horrific. The establishment left a lot to be desired as well.

Walter Petersen

We had a great time. Clean and very helpful. Room for kids to play pinball during and after bowling. 1 lanes had a few problems and corrected quickly. Thank for the pleasant atmosphere. Walt petersen

sally taylor

Amazing amazing amazing experience with my toddlers. Who would have guess bowling for toddlers?? The man working was so completely patient and kind. Super impressed all around.

Rick Young

Mark Fruci

Great place for a birthday party!

Zach Revis


Ayman Kaddouri

Pamela Fish

Nothing wrong with the Lanes, but the guy in charge that night was a jerk ( not the first time either). It was so bad his co-worker felt the need to come out and apologize....

Miriam Walsh

This is a basic bowling alley, but the staff are helpful, and hosted my son's birthday party very graciously, given that what I thought would be 10 kids and 4 adults ended up as 24+ people. Reasonable party prices, too.

Ian Privateer

brought the kids and had a blast (they used bumpers), we got some food too that was not bad , no i take that back the chili fries sucked , but the burger was good. Staff was really nice and helpful. I couldn't find the perfect ball to win , but managed to have a good time none the less

Brandy Lewis

We had our son's birthday party here and it was such a let down! We love going here to bowl with our kids but the party was not good at all. We had to wait forever to set up our stuff because a table wasn't reserved for us even though we called to schedule the party a month ahead of time. We were told that we would have 15 minutes before the party started to set up which wasn't near enough time. We had to go order our food in the middle of our party because nobody ever came to ask what the kids would like, like we were told would happen. The worst part about it was while we were cleaning up and saying goodbye to our guests, a ton of bowling tournament people came and started setting their stuff down on top of our things and complaining that everything was sticky. It was sticky when we got there. Nobody ever came and cleaned the table off from the previous party. We felt so rushed to get our things out of there. We will never have a party there again! Bowl with our kids, yes, but no parties ever again!


You bowl and the fun happens. Cash only.

Lori Brothers

Art Luciano

C'mon who doesn't love a night out of bowling with friends and family? You've got everything you need right here with a pro shop, a small bar that serves food as well.

Dakota Plowucha

Messed up my new ball

Brandon Newman

Staff is a little frumpy. It was about empty the night we went. Was disappointed to find that they didn't serve mixed drinks, or liquor. The bowling alley in Brevard does have that, along with a lot more food options.

Pam Ellis

Old timey, cheap fun!

Jeffrey Goatcher

Great family fun

Jesse Rogers

Good people, cold beer, good food

Food, arcade room, many bowling balls to choose from and bathrooms

Justin Crow

Shawn Gilbert

carolina girl

It's ok for an evening out and the staff is very nice. The price list is on the wall behind the counter . Just be sure if you have your OWN shoes, let them know so you don't get charge.the price per game is $6.00.

quake street

Andrew Prusik

Great staff and fun games. Only issue was this past visit we had to get the staff to fix our lane that kept breaking several times. But it's usually perfect everytime we go

L Phil

Great Place to Bowl, Friendly Staff and Clean Facility

Lin Johnson

Lane kept shutting down, arcade games didn't work. Staff was nice.

Millie Desi


Sandra Williams

Old building. Needs remodeling. Staff had to reset the lane several times. Hard to change players. Takes cash only. $6 per game. $4 for shoes.

Cassidy Heaton

Kids bowl free? NO. Play one game get one free coupon. NO. PLAYED TWO GAMES PAID $70. What a ripoff. Plus the machine kept breaking and the last frame one worker came through and tossed a pin down the hitter which cost my husband his last two throws. Won't be back.

Blake Ward

Loved it beer if cold friends are great

Vi gwen

It ain't fancy but the guy who runs the place is nice and I mean who cares about all the frills and thrills when this place is reasonably priced

Lauren Foster

Loved it here, so much fun!! Even though everyone beat me in bowling. We had a kiddo with us and it had all the gear to help him bowl better.

Oryan Price

Me and my family had a blast at the bowling ally. All the staff were very helpful and pleasant and the place itself was clean. Tarheel bowling is a great place to take your friends and family and I think you will really enjoy it.

Virginia Allen

Good place to bring the family. Decent price on lanes and concessions.

EB Bullard

I'll give it 3 stars. Looks like a fine bowling alley, but they only take cash. There is an ATM, but I was there on a business outing so we went to Asheville instead.

I went today and it was awesome. I can't believe the reviews on here. I had a 2 year old, 12 year old, and 2 adults and we had no problems. Two games and $26. Great place

Michael McGrade

There is so much wrong with this place nowadays. It use to be decent but it's now rundown, the staff is rude and uncaring, and it's incredibly overpriced. No prices were listed and we were told it'd be $4 for a game and to pay when we were done (we were not told about shoe price rental). It cost us nearly $100 which is being ridiculous. Not to mention they only accept cash and be ready to get charged a bunch at the ATM. I'll never bring my family back. The machine on the lanes also kept getting stuck and the employees seemed bothered when asked to fix it. Not to mention the food is also way overpriced ($13+ for a "large" boxed store pizza). I'd honestly give it a zero if it was possible. We were all extremely disappointed overall.

Michael Pierce

Excellent place friendly and exceptionally clean plus there is a pro shop inside also..

Jimmie West

George Cox

Jeanie Knox

Great place to bowl. Has an arcade, snack bar and tons of lanes. Friendly staff, clean inside, perfect for birthday parties.

andrew thomas

hannah brooke

Pretty cool. We will be back. Clean and good environment.

see chelle

Environment is ok at best. The guy behind the counter has a bad attitude and could care less you have a decent experience there. If your idea of fun is poor service, over pricing, no convenience cash only business with a near $3 dollar service charge to draw money from atm with an awful selection of balls that are poorly maintained and supplied as are the shoes then you should have a blast. Otherwise Don't waste your time and spend the money in another place that is better and acts like they want your business.

Carmen A

Nice and helpful employees, and fun bowling!

antoni moreno

Had a lot of fun but staff was rude and not clear on prices plus ripped us off for a pair of shoes we didn’t even use. But had fun just wish the staff was nicer.
