REVIEWS OF Holiday Lanes IN Tennessee

Range Guys

Fun with the kids but pricey as well.

Emily Clawson

We went today for my husband's birthday. It was him, me and my 5 year old. My husband and son had never been before. We got there and met the worker jon Phillip which was super helpful. Especially for us definate beginners. Our lane messed up which was no problem he simply switched us over to another lane and continued our game. We were treated awesome by all staff we encountered. This was our first trip but certainly won't be our last.

Clifford Buckley

Great experience and affordable late night bowling.

NiJay Sowell

The people there are amazing! The place is super clean. Everyone was so welcoming to me and my friends and family. definitely a 9/10 rating.

Mid night bowling mother trucker

Mark Tidman

Automated lane controls raise and lower bumper guards as needed by each player; extremely convenient. If you contract for an hour, the lanes shut down exactly after sixty minutes, regardless of where you are in the game. Be prepared to pay extra to finish the game you want to complete. We did not visit the restrooms (no score) or purchase any food (no score) so neither figure into the 4 Star rating given. The exterior, lobby, and upper areas need updating. The air smelled fresh and odor free which is a nice contrast to some lanes I've played.

Jimin the Strawberry -with jams-

It was very busy tonight, but other than that, I had a lot of fun. The controls of the score panels are very modern and user-friendly as well.

Barbara Guinn

Nice clean family fun & great food

Misty Blue Scott

We had my daughter's 16th birthday party here and it was great! The pizza and cheese bread was great! The staff were so helpful and they were also very patient! She had a blast and we are so grateful they offer party packages! This one was a hit!

Forrest Whitener

It was fun, we had a good time.

Elizabeth Going

I really enjoyed myself this morning

S Scott

They have a kids free for summer program it's great and fun all u have to pay for is ur shoes. And u can get one for the parents or adults for 30$ for the summer it is well worth the money.

kristy kettenbauer

Some of the staff was not the most helpful but they offer discount tickets for special needs individuals and their care takers which is great. Pretty clean establishment.

Josh Hill

Good place to go bowling with the whole family. Has automatic bumpers for the kids and lots of options for game types. Also has program for kids and parents to bowl all summer long for just the cost of shoe rental.

Nevada Prince

The past few weeks I've gone every Sunday night around 9pm when they have the $1 game and shoe rental. It's really worth it and the staff is always friendly. Me and my boyfriend usually play 3 games and then play the little game machines by the exit after paying. It's a nice, cheap, even family friendly thing to do on the weekends. They do have a bar so be aware of that if you bring your kids.

Doug Chaffin

Really clean and I believe they have finally gotten all the smoke out of the building from many years of being a smoke-friendly establishment. The employees were very nice and polite. Food at the bar was decent, well, except the fake cheese on the nachos. $28 for two people to bowl an hour is pretty expensive though. Other than that, I give this place a 4 star.

Aaron Birchfield

Somewhat overpriced but the establishment is nice and well taken care of. I enjoyed myself

Debbie Fields

No place like Holiday Lanes and the people that work there especially Lisa,J.P and Dan

Courtney Lake

A good bowling alley. The score computers are modernized with a plethora of options, but that's about it. Everything else looks exactly like I remember from bowling birthday parties in the 90s. We had fun though and I would for sure go back.

Nicole Gallagher

Shoes were clean, food and drinks were great. Staff was not great.

Raphael Dittman

Fun times!

cameron maerz

The only reason im giving this place two stars is due to their ball return working smoothly. I'm not sure why the owners feel it's a good idea to charge hourly for games? If you have your own shoes, guess what?! Doesn't matter, same price!! Needless to say 1/4 way through our third game, and our timer expired. This place is stupid expensive for a bowling alley.

Sheree Griffin

People were great

Kerry Farnsworth

Nice place for friends and family


$5 person on Sunday unlimited bowling military discounts food drinks beer mixed drinks clean restroom and staff are NOT rude.

Big larry morris

We had our company party there and it was a blast

C Morgan

Fun time. Reasonably priced.

Jeremiah Royston

Great place to bowl. 24 lanes!

Darlene Denis

Tech advanced bowling center with great play options. That said, they should not start your lane time until you have fully set up the computer and rolled the first ball. We lost 10 mins of lane time because it was our first time there and it takes time to enter 4 people into the computer system. Staff is friendly bit could have been more knowledgeable regarding leagues. It's the only bowling center in the area so I guess they don't have to try as hard anymore.

W. Mills

Great fun. Good lanes. Clean place

Justin Bradford

Great night out with the kids. The building is older but clean and the lanes we were on were in good shape with modern scoring systems.

Carlos Herndon

Kim Jones

Fun times, good snacks, friendly staff, and nice bowlers in the lanes beside. From kids, teenagers, couples, and disabled folks, all having a good time

Jeff Graham

A lot of family fun. A little pricey but overall a fun time.

Roselea Laufenberg

Needs renovation. Very worn down. Not enough lanes. Sometimes long wait times.

John Roth

The Host of the Special Olympics for Upper East Tennessee Area 3. There was plenty of room for all the students, and they all received recognition for competing. Volunteers from Brightstar, and Siemens were great. While Holiday Lanes made sure everything ran without issues, or problems. As for Gracie the star of the show she made a few new friends. Thank you John, and Greg.

Michael Faust

Mark W. Craven

A fun place. Bowling with a couple and their six-year-old daughter. Had a very good time. All of the staff was very friendly and will help with any needs.

Harley Davidson

It was awesome!!! A group if friends, that I went with, had a great time with my co-workers at Taco Bell for our Christmas Party.

Babygirl Tori

This bowling alley is great if you can actually get a lane. I have tried several times to get a lane the last few months and they either have a league who has reserved it or they are cleaning their lanes. I really don’t recommend going here for a family event or outing, as there are drunks who yell foul language and inappropriate things. The owners and guys who work there aren’t very nice and they upped their prices recently which makes us not even able to bowl a few times a week like my family and I used to. 1/5 stars, due to the fact that we can’t ever bowl and it’s too expensive.

david onuh

It's a fun we all need that place where we can relieve stress.

denise welch

Love to bowl here.

The PokeBroski

This place is a fun place to bowl that’s if you can find an opening in there busy schedule. I have been there 10 times and every time I have been denied a lane or had to wait for 2 hours at the least. Calling ahead can help but make sure u call bright and early because they fill up almost emediatly.

Kelli Taylor

Can't beat $5 bill from 9 to 11 p.m.

Diamond Gibson

Quick to get a lane. Best fun. Very interactive.

Thrifty Bloggist

They have a couple claw machines and similar arcade games and their food is delicious. The people are really nice. The bowling is very pricey, except on Wednesday’s and it’s $1.00 a game and $1.00 for shoes!

Sheila Combs

Great bowling alley and great time with friends.

Timothy Deyton

Great place for the whole family fun bowling arcade and Diner

Jill Peters

Great atmosphere, slick lanes, and the glow in the dark bowling socks for those of us with a fun sock fetish. Come prepared to enjoy a comfortable place to bowl and not too pricey I might add.

larry smith

Leah was very nice to me and the family. The other waitress can be a little rude

Jason Everhart

Great atmosphere, great staff!

Amber Gouge

Fun for the family

Rusty Baker

We love it there. The staff is friendly and helpful and the facilities are nice. The kids always enjoy the on screen animations with their faces superimposed. Fun stuff! The food is typical snack bar stuff - burgers, pizza, chicken tenders, nachos, etc., but good for what it is. They make the pizzas to order, which is nice, instead if getting the "heat lamp specials" you usually get at snack bars. All in all, very recommendable family fun.

Keri Cox

Probably will never return. I reserved a lane for midnight bowling and paid before i got there with a card. At 12.35 i got an emergency call about one of my family members. I was only able to play one game and they still took the full price that someone would pay if they stayed there the whole time. I'm highly disappointed in this place. Guess I'll drive the extra 30 minutes to go to another bowling ally.

Pogie Creek

This place is cool. I saw a guy in the parking lot with a bonafide awesome vintage bowling ball bag and now I want one. Kids love going.

Gary Hicks

Great bowling alley and has up to date lanes Nice prices and great employees worth the money to bowl here.. plus they have glow party.

Shannon Archer

A great place to take your family and friends for a great time would suggest this to anybody.

Kaitlyn Harry

This was my first time bowling and I loved it! The people were friendly and everything was organized and easy to understand. Really enjoyed it

python man

It is a pretty nice bowling ally. Beer is REALLY expensive. Staff is REALLY rude. I think they REALLY need some competition in this city. They don't seem to care because they have lots of business due to the fact they are the only one around.

Terry Vail

Great place to bowl.

Barbara Mowder

We had my daughters 10th birthday there añd the staff were very helpful the food and drinks were great overall it was a very good time

Betty Brown

Good customer service. For two adults and a child to bowl two and a half games it's $40 that's just too much

Parker Ohme

Fun bowling. Gui on the machines is odd though.

Timothy Gilbert

A great time with the family! A little expensive, but as bowling goes they have up-to-date lanes with current computer systems! I had no trouble with the 2 games we played and every rack was set correctly. The automatic bumpers could be set for individual players and worked as they should for each player. The restrooms & establishment was clean. There were signs and prices for everything in plain view.

InsaneWolf TV

Fun environment. I typically go here about 4 times a week when i can.

Eragon Frye

Awesome place

Sean Cornett

Holiday Lanes is my go-to for bowling. It can busy on the weekends with a long wait time, but other than that the place is great place to bowl. Plenty of lanes and food, beer even! They Always have my shoe size as well, 13s don't always come easy.

tj Perkins

Fun fun fun fun

Lacey Landrum

Really great!

Dave Thetford

Panera bread party thank you Rachel

Deanna Marcus

Staff is friendly and helpful. Had lots of fun!

Misty Cumbow

This is how valuable customers are at Holiday Lane. We decided last Thursday that we would go bowling. When we arrived they were packed hardly a place to park. Once inside they told us that they were booked up. That sucked but it was understandable so we asked if we could make a reservation for tonight. They said of course so we booked a reservation for 8:30 on New Years Eve. So tonight we arrive and we approach the counter. The gentleman working said that we could not bowl because they booked a last minute party for all 24 lanes. After discussing for a moment my husband asked for the owner's contact information, Mr. Kirkpatrick. The worker told me to hang on and brought the owner's son out. I made him apologize to my kids who now have nothing to do. He offered us a free pass to come back but that's not what we wanted. After a short discussion we left. Half way home we decided to go back my husband was not satisfied. He went in alone and again asked to speak to the owner's son. They went into the office had a discussion and then he requested the owner's phone number. He was actually there. He didn't even care to come talk to me the first time. Once he came I again explained the situation and he once again offered a free bowl. I don't want a free bowl. So when pushed on why our reservation was cancelled he blamed it on his employee. He said his employee made the mistake. Awesome leadership ability blaming your employees. After a bit more conversation we left. My husband told the gentleman working the counter that he was sorry it wasn't his fault. We are not sorry for our actions but after meeting the owner I am sorry he has to work for someone that cares so little about his staff or his customers. The owner made a short sighted decision to make a quick profit instead of caring about the long term stability of his business. We bowl there frequently, I bowled there when I was younger, and our kids would have probably bowled there when they got older. Not now, he claims to not know the party directly but integrity left this place the moment he pushed blame down so I rightfully do not believe them. While we are not going to make him rich ourselves I am hoping that are story and the other people who were being turned away at the door will voice their opinion enough that impacts the business.

Ken Williams

I liked the way the place was laid out, the ball racks were on the front side of tables facing lanes which is convenient. Now the reason this place did not get 5 stars from me is because this was my first visit with my family and the group that came in and was in the same lane set did not show any lane courtesy to my family and I but seemed not to have a problem doing so for the next set of lanes. Also due to the speed in which they were bowling, which was causing the ball return to continuously kinda jam so to speak. The way I was taught to bowl and be courteous was definitely not the way these people were bowling which had an impact on my family's mood. But I'm sure not all the people who go there act like that which is why I stated that it was the first visit.

Joshua Rimell

Not super appealing outside, but a good bowling alley atmosphere inside. Lanes and mechanics are kept up. They do serve food (kinda pricey), and they do have a bar but it is in a separate room which is nice. I went on a thursday afternoon in June and it is suprisingly not too busy.

Beth Maxwell

We had my grandson's 7th birthday party here and the staff was amazing. The children and adults all had a wonderful time.

david soto

Great place for a good night out with friends. Sunday and Monday dollar bowling nights. Drunk prices aren't to bad customer service is great.

Overshot Beatle

Bowling was a lot of fun there and the place is fairly clean. The staff are not too awful helpful though and the bathrooms were a little dirty. Other than that, it is a great place for date night or just hanging out with friends.

Harrison Osborne

Great place to go bowling and get drunk

Stephanie Raines

Thursday night dollar game was wonderful

Rascal Ten

Lady Kimberly Mae

I have enjoyed this place since I was a kid and used to run around it while my friend's dad played in a league. New and improved now an still just as much fun!

carl spackler

Great place for people who are challenged. Very accommodating staff. Thanks for the job you do for the community.

Chris Patterson

DON'T. Played 1.8 games w my 2 children for 40.00! And only 1.8 because they cut the machine off in the 9th.(and had only 3 other lanes in use).Started the timer once we put names in..not after we picked balls and shoes and started playing. Great technology, buyt very poor Customer focus..and didn't care when addressed. Will never go back, bad.

Dolly Dolly Oxen Free

I really like this place. The attitudes of some of the league bowlers could be better. A couple of those fellas act like they own the place. But that's not the fault of the business. The staff is great. (I just hate going when that group is bowling.)

Danielle Ruiz

Great place for family fun! We had a blast!

Cari Dail

Pretty fun!

Melissa Wise

Lots of fun.

O'Mayra Diaz

Staff was super friendly, especially the bartender who was the only one working food and drinks for our large party as well a the rest of the public. She handled the large crowd and constant orders with a smile and a rock star attitude!

Jeremiah Dugger

An ok bowling alley. Kind of run down but plenty of lanes available during daylight hours. Cosmic bowling seems to peak time ls here.

Adam Cook

Bowling. Good fun. A little crowded.

Craig Stapleton

Great place for bowling. Modern, digital, scoring system and a great atmosphere make for good times. Decent snack bar with adult beverages available.

Jane Fraley

Nice and clean Good polite front desk!
