Was super fun
It's what it is, a bowling center. I've heard that the staff are rude. But it's unique. Nice neon space feeling.
Had a great time!
Great employees, owner is great. Had a fun time
Everything from food to the games themselves are overpriced compared to Strike & Spare. Went for the experience but definitely not going to be back.
Lanes are fine. Part of the ceiling fell on my uncle though (ceiling badly needs repairs) and half of the arcade is broken.
A little expensive ($18 for one adult and two kids under age 6, and we went around 1:00 pm), but the bowling was fine. The place is a little dirty and old feeling. They do offer food and beer, though, so that's a plus.
A good place to have fun.
Remember 7—8 is & 10 pitchers
Pizza was good. Beer was good. Bowling was fantastic. Friendly employees!!
Very old and out dated.Not in a safe location to drop off teens. Parking lot is poorly lit.
I was there watching family bowl. We had a good time. It was a bit pricey but they enjoyed the experience.
Fun for the fam
I've been coming here since I was 4 years old. I lived in Scott County with my grandparents at that time. Whenever a Tuesday rolled around, my grandpa would come out, give me a hug, and I would ALWAYS look for his Bowling Ball bag the moment I stepped in. He took me with him every week, and I can remember the first time I walked into this establishment. The crashing of pins. The thundering noises of balls rocketing down the lanes... It was a thrill that I had never experienced before. And it was at THIS Alley. It was at THIS alley where some of my fondest memories reside. Here I am, 13 years later, still visiting this location. Every time I hear that glorious "CRRRRSH!" of a set of pins... It brings back those amazing memories. And the great service has never changed. The employees were wonderful 13 years ago. And they're still wonderful now. The prices are affordable, and the "Daily Specials", as I call them... they are a STEAL. The shoes are clean, and the building has that nice, retro feel... with a nice, modern twist. I go here with my friends all the time, and we have an absolute blast. Play a game here, get some pizza, and chill with your friends. I tell you, it'll be time well spent.
Decent place a little dated
Wood lanes. Consistent shot. Very few breakdowns.
I received the worst service ever at a bowling alley which is supposed to be family friendly. We brought in a group of kids and they refused to put up gutter guards. First he lied and said all the guards were broken and being repaired. Which was obviously not true because they were visibly strewn across the bowling alley. Then when I called him out on it he said that he was the only staff and that it was a full house due to league and that he was not about to be running up and down the lane catching the balls that would be getting stuck in the gutter. I said we would wait until he was less busy signing up the league people and he didn't even response and I was forced to walk away. The look on the kids faces as they kept getting gutter balls was heartbreaking. Needless to say we will never come back to this bowling alley and I highly recommend NOT coming here especially if you have kids. Worst experience bowling ever. And if you see my picture league hadn't even started yet and we played for thirty more minutes before any of them even started to bowl. Just ridiculous.
I love this place! We go bowling weekly and always have a great time. On the weekends they do cosmic bowling at 8pm, where the lights go off, the music is turned up and you bowl by the glow. That is a fun experience but I prefer bowling with the lights on. The website has a full lists of pricing and special pricing for certain times and days. It's always reasonable and certain pricing has shoe rental included. It's in an older building but it's well maintained. It's clean, the bathrooms are clean and the staff is always helpful and friendly. It is a great place to get some exercise, have some fun and spend time with friends...and to get our heads out of our devices for a few hrs. My husband and I go weekly and it's the highlight of my week
The game section is really rough. Tried 4 games and 3 of them took our money. The one game that actually worked, couldnt dispense tickets. Just really ran down. The guy at the desk was hateful and acted like it killed him to flip the breaker to even turn on the games. I understand this isn’t an arcade, but they shouldn’t have games if they don’t want to maintain them.
Fun place to share with your kids!
Got charged for two games after asking for one game. Got put on lane 3 which had scoring issues. Place was full on Tuesday night.
Great place to take your family for fun and enjoyable memories. We go bowling here just about everyday! I bought my son and fiance a new bowling ball for Christmas and they both love them! For a great price as well! Thank you Craig!
Always clean with a courteous staff more than willing to assist us with any issues that may arise. I recommend this bowling alley to any group small or large!
Family fun reasonable priced
Bowling was good, but half the arcade games didn't work.
Not a bad place. Really big, but showing its age. The associates arent exactly welcoming. But decent place to bowl, the food is definitely over priced for the quality.
Bowled my 13th 300 bowling game of my career
Great for families
Great fun with reasonable prices. Good background music played when league bowling isn't active. Good special prices on Sunday and Wednesday. Also it houses an outlet of "The Other Place" deli... yum
Nice bowling alley not much more to say about it. Alot of their games don't work
Friendly and good to kids. Just wish we had one in Harriman TN
Fun bowling, but dated. Will go again
Great place. My husband and I went there for a date night.
A bit dated but nice place
A great place to have fun with a group of friends.
Great place to bowl. Lanes are always taken care of. Prompt service
A little outdated but we still had a ton of fun.
Worst customer service I've ever had in a bowling alley. Not to metion, there was no way for a handicapped person to play. Plus guy was rude
Had a wonderful time! Needs some upkeep but everyone was friendly & had a great time!!
A great place to go bowling. Not too crowded and the price is very fair.
Very friendly and knowledgeable staff
Old not so great at all.
Bowling was good but was disappointed you couldnt get any drinks or food there.
Fun friendly and helpful
Great place! They offered gutter guards to the lady who’s kids were struggling in bowling!
Nice service, excessive trouble lane 27 and 28
Had a great time clean but alot of tbe arcade games were outta order.
Great bowling during rest time on a trip to Tennessee. Good lanes and area, unfortunately had very worn out shoes that had some smell in them. Lacked my specific size so I got a half size up (nitpicking here). Overall great value with a little need for increased upkeep.
Nice, clean environment for families to bowl.....
Great Hamburger, it's a Secret in Secret City. Whisper to your friends and family.
Bowling is alright. the arcade games suck.and half of them are broken
Good place to bowl. Although it's dirty and rundown. The price is more on the expensive side for the sub par atmosphere and amenities.
Easily our favorite place to bowl. We love the old wooden lanes and most of all, the community of fellow bowlers and the staff.
Love it. My favorite place
Love this alley
Fun and not pocket busting...
Fun relaxing family place
Not very friendly...needs some sprucing up.
Has lots of lanes, so getting a space isn't really an issue. Is an older alley, so it is a bit run down, but still a good time.
Fun place.. Great prices on games-per-person, decent food, plenty of lanes, and a few pool/billiards tables..
Desk staff could be friendlier. They don't really seem to enjoy the job or helping customers.
Clean fun but a bit dated
Good place to spend time with family or friends. Great staff.
It's ok place to go bowling but they need little fixing the ceiling tiles looking bad need roof repairs .
Clean, staff was great. It was crowded and there wasn't enough kids bowling balls. Shoes were ancient
It's a bit roughed up from age, but the equipment seems to always work just fine. That's what's most important.
Great place for the family to have some fun or for friends to hang out. There isn't much to do in Oak Ridge, so the bowling alley is a huge asset to the community.
It was fun and nice.
Just went today with my 10 year old. Everyone there is so nice. 2 people, 2 games and shoe rental was about $17. Had a good time. They also have food and drinks and even alcohol if you want it. Overall good experience and great for family time.
Nice place, I've been to better. Needs some updating but I had fun.
Good facility with good rates.
They really need to work on the floors. The floors are wildly inconsistent, at times they were slick as normal and other times they had completely no slide to them. Many of us almost fell over because we hit an unexpected patch that had no slide to it. Worker wasn't pleasant and shoes looked about 30 years old.
My family had a great time. Thanks for being there for the kids.
Great cosmic bowling
The lanes are inconsistently waxed from one to the next which makes bowling harder. They stopped serving any beer other than yellow junk. They did have all the yellow junk you might want on draft and in the bottle, though.
Very friendly staff we had a great time
Got a good ball from the pro shop and the lanes are not over oiled. The staff is extremely friendly and genuinely cares about taking care of the guests. Can't wait to play again.
Clean and not busy. The gentleman at the counter was very nice.
Avid bowler. Recently moved to Oak Ridge. Gave this place a shot cuz its less than a mile from my house. In the future, I'll drive the 45 minutes for Fountain Lanes. 2 guys working the counter were rude (overweight bald man and older fellow). Tried to deny our groupons coupons til we raised a stink about false advertising. Took 12 people with me and these guys were trying to haggle over the price of (Groupon says COMPLIMENTARY) shoe rental. Waited 30 minutes (sign said 'back in 5') for someone to work concessions. When my wife enquired at the front desk, she was told to wait patiently cuz the clerk was on a "5 minute break". Faulty lanes, scoreboards, and balls. Disgusting bathrooms. Terrible food. Bad service. Place is a joke. BEWARE!!! PS- Google made me give this establishment the 1 star it got. ... At least the shoes were clean, I guess.
Dude that works here gave it 5 stars and all other bowling alleys 1 star with bad reviews. That alone is douchy and worthy of 1 star..
Good place to bowl.
Love bowling here super nice people great for family fun
Workers at front desk sales wasn't friendly guy at snack bar was totally opposite
Oh my...we had a blast here.
Nice center. The building is showing age but the staff is top notch. A great place to roll the rock.
It's bowling. What more can you ask for?
Cheap bowling. It's dated, but everything works and the staff is nice.
Went for a Birthday Party, kids really enjoyed themselves
Love to bowl here ...they have some of the best lanes available in tennessee ...they are cleaned and maintenance weekly...the staff is very friendly and will help with any concerns you may have... They have guards for beginners and kids so you can't miss the pins and the ball launcher for kids who can't bowl yet...they also have a inside catering bar that serves a variety of food and alcoholic beverages...they also have free refill soda fountain....friday and Saturday is cosmic bowl with low prices and disco and neon and laser lights and they play the latest hit music...this is a great place for parties...past time ...or get togethers because special reduced pricing is available ...must visit at least once
My Family & I went there for my birthday. We had so much fun!!
It's a homey, family friendly place with daily deals. Wednesday, two people bowling two games is only $13 (which includes shoe rental). The man who runs it is always helpful in giving hints on how to bowl. My boyfriend and I drive about an hour to go here versus the one at Fountain City.
Good place for family fun
Not th he cleanest. Not a selection of places to sit to be a spectator. Oh and do t go for a snack or drink, they will rent your lane out to someone else even if you still have games t hat you have paid for.
Fun for the family
my son enjoys bowling..he has a great time !!
My husband bowls on Tuesdays and really likes everyone.
I went to play pool. 4 or 5 tables, missing balls and only 4 cue sticks for all tables to play with. Will go back but not often
Family oriented bowling.
Fun times and AC two of my favorite things
We love coming here on Sundays after church to spend time together, as a family, playing a game everyone enjoys.
We went as a group recently & the 2 guys working there were utter JERKS. They had nasty attitudes, were very impatient with us & didn't seem in any hurry to help us with anything. They didn't like the fact that we asked for gutter guards (after my son's ball got stuck in the gutter twice, I FIGURED they'd appreciate us having the guards in). They also don't have a bowling ball ramp, which would help tremendously with the slow ball issue. After dropping that much money into their till, they SHOULD have had better attitudes. I guess since they had the money, they got their share & didn't care.
My favorite place
Plenty of lanes, clean and bright, great food and friendly people willing to help. Fun Cosmic bowling Friday and Saturday nights starting earlier than others.
My family has been going there for years. The staff is very courteous and friendly. We have never had any problems there. I have been to a few other places in Knoxville and prefer to come here over them. Prices are good, food is good and it is well kept. Equipment isn't brand new so it has some wear but that doesn't bother me. I would recommend this place.
We had alot of fun
You can bowl and the alley at night is amazing
Lets start positive, the woman and her daughter that run the restaurant are so sweet! The other employees are very drab and unfriendly. The alleys are very drab and dark. Our first game went okay, the second game, the alley broke down and i stead of letting us start a new game, the employee made us start on a new lane from the same place without so much as an explanation or apology. As bad as going to a panera bread because panera bread is awful.
Family-friendly. $10 pitchers before 6. $6 wings. Can't really complain
So much fun for kids
Friendly staff, but the general cleanliness was definitely lacking; as well as, the quality of their equipment.
Great bowling lanes but bathrooms are not kept clean. No toilet paper in either bathroom
Ive been coming here since i was a little kid so this is a bit biased. Bowling was and still is a part of my childhood. The smell of fries being fried and the sound of pins being knocked down are the sound of many of my memories of my home town. Anyways i normally go during the summer at night on the weekends. After 8 they turn on the blacklights, disco balls, and strobe lights. They're food is also AMAZING! I would recommend coming with big groups.
Look and fun for all ages Pool, bowl,games, concessions
Horrible customer service. Pizzas were frozen cheese pizzas (totinos style) that tasted like garbage. Manager refused to allow us to bring in outside food ( A Birthday Cake for a 5 year old) very rude people work here with very bad customer service and food quality in the same area
Nice place and family friendly
Nice, a bit expensive
Had an Awesome time.
lazy, inconsistent “rules” and employees that ruin the experience and fun...waste of money and time
It was ok...our lane kept jamming up though
(Translated by Google) It was good (Original) Estuvo bien
Great Price for Cosmos Bowling! Could use a tad bit of updating on some things, though
The staff is so nice and helpful! It's a great family place or date place with a good price!
Great place of family fun. We spent the celebration of my wife's birthday and son' s birthday, today.
(Translated by Google) Fun place (Original) 재미난 곳
Nice people, clean environment and always fun! The parking lot is well lit and the night time bowling is the best!
Only been to one other bowling alley so wasn't sure what to expect at first. The employee's are very unfriendly and unhelpful. In the middle of a game the lane just completely broke and messed up like 5 roles, instead of the worker giving us a free game to restart it, he just completely ignored the fact that our game was ruined and moved us to a new lane with the same score. We got a pizza, and what do you really expect from a bowling alley food wise? It was overpriced for what it was but the cook was a sweetie.
The family had a blast. They have a special where kids can play free for the summer and adults can get a pass for 30.00.
Very much fun! Clean family environment and great bowling facility plus pool tables and games. Super clean and nice helpful staff....and great music for our Saturday night fun!!
