Their Manager just quit. Said the owner wouldnt allow him to make necessary changes. Apparently the owner is in too tight to make changes that are needed. She wont sell, and won't do what is needed. Good luck Shane, and good luck to the bowling center it's going to need it

Bowled in a tournament there yesterday. They are trying to fix the place up. Unfortunately, even the staff are saying management is using the cheapest software to do it! Problems all day long. Completely ridiculous needs new owners very badly

Took my little niece. She loved it but I have to agree with some of the comments. We did not feel welcomed at all and after bowling we went over to play air hockey. We started playing with a couple of kids who's dad was in league. Thleagueat was fine for the most part however after a few minutes a couple of guys came in and the subject matter they were discussing was not acceptable around children. One of the employees was also in this conversation. A few minutes later 2 girls came in and their language was downright filthy, the f word and g.d. being their favorite. I went up to counter and told the person working( who by the way of was just standing there talking) and asked if they could go talk to them, b/c it was unacceptable. No one ever did. They just looked at me like I was the problem. Won't be going back any time soon.

Unfortunately, the comments you see on here from staff and customers says it all. The staff has no idea how to treat people, especially those who pay their salaries. Most people can get get their point across and still be respectful. Not this staff

I just read this and I happen to be the one who cut your service off. You were either drink when you came in or drugged. We are very responsible when it comes to serving beer. You or your friends were trying to tearing the place down. We don't need your kind of business.

Comment Date: 10/14/2013 Name: Lauren
I came to this establishment looking for a fun time for my birthday, and I will NEVER return. The staff was incredibly rude, and saw it fit to discontinue serving us after an hour. After paying $25 for a lane and not being there long enough to finish one game, we were all livid. After confronting the manager to see if we could just get our money back and leave, we were told no, and then they called the cops. I think two eight ounce beers in an hour is quite acceptable, especially for a celebration. We were all polite, and respectable...up until that point. Excuse us for trying to have a good time, at a place where that is the point! I still would like to speak with the owner on this matter. All you showed me was your utter RUDENESS and the unacceptable way to treat your paying customers. I will make sure everyone I know in the city will know how you conduct your business.

Staff is unbelievably rude!! Try smiling every once in a while. They do not welcome families. They are truly only interested in leagues and alcohol sales, that's it. They really should have a sign on the door saying "no families welcome."

This place is terrible. I have been twice once with my family and once with some friends. We noticed a guy walking all around the ball return drinking his beer. The assistant manager was too busy playing around with the old snack bar lady, to put a stop to it. The second time, we saw a guy go about 6 feet from the pins to get his ball out of the gutter, he slid 3 or 4 feet. Once again the assistant manger is oblivious to what is going on. The bad thing is, then they wonder my their lanes are broken or messed up? DUH! Bad Management!!!

I find it odd. That anytime the employees have to speak with someone about tearing up equipment or talking to them with disrespect we get a 3 or 4 bad comments as I have stated before my number is all over the center all you have to do is call. I can put my real name on this posting can you? P.S. if the center is so bad why do you keep coming back?

Comment Date: 6/25/2012 Name: Owner
Sorry you had a bad experience we have been working hard in this area. my telephone is posted all over the bowling center please call me directly. I will gladly try to solve you problems.

Comment Date: 12/23/2011 Name: Jodi Hughes
I am sorry if some of our customers are not feeling appreciated because we certainly are grateful for our customers and I will make sure our employees have a change of attitude in the way they interact with our customers. But. Again they are some facts wrong....We have never handled league funds it is up to the officers to check league fund balances not the bowling center. If the league officers had followed abc rules it could have never happened. I understand all league funds were paid and no one was cheated out of any monies. As far as our leagues go again we are no lower in count than any of the other center according to lane ratio. I will be glad to talk with anyone concerning any problems they are having with our staff. Just call me and I will set a meeting time.

To Debbie concerning no-tap... When you have a no-tap of your own then you can make the rules and not charge for a cup of ice. I am sure Star Lanes gives you everything.

These are really nice people who own and run this bowling alley they really go out of their way to help Churches and meals on wheels and needy families. They keep prices as low as possible and I under stand the owners are having some bad health problems, my thoughts are some people are experiencing sour grapes.

Comment Date: 12/12/2011 Name: Victor
Sounds like these so called bowlers are wanting a free ride There are no better prices around , not everyone can afford The franchise centers prices. I have brought my family here for the last few years and have found this to be a nice center. Grown up people.....

I have bowled in this center for many years, I guess the bowlers now don't remember lanes of old. Terrible lane beds Would ruin your bowling balls after a game. Iq so have noticed the same terrible comments coming from same bowlers, if they are so unhappy why not go ther go to star lanes and pay 4.61 for shoes and 5.00 per game and don't come back to Tri city and make everyone happy you and them.

Comment Date: 12/10/2011 Name: Tri-City Lanes
I think it is a shame to make up things about a bowling center that you don't have a clue about. The Saturday night no-tap rules has not been changed. It takes ten teams to bowl for the pots this is to protect our house bowlers from high average bowlers coming from other houses and taking their pots When our bowlers are out of town bowling in annual tournaments. No one has ever been been cheated out of any money in the 14 years we have been here. We have the bowlers sign up by 6:30 pm for the no-tap tournament so the lanes can be oiled with the no-tap shot. (not the house shot.) No money is missing from the Jack pots not now not ever. I have checked with all league secretaries and no league funds are missing, again, people spreading lies. Why??? because they didn't bowl well or the people who work here wouldn't give them everything free??? If you do not want to bowl here that is your choice. We wish you would but if you are not happy go to another center and see if they will let you run it. As long as I can pay the bills here I will decide who works here. As far as our leagues go we are no shorter than any other bowling centers in the tri-city area. Since I own the bowling center I think I should know if it is up for sale. It is not now nor has it ever been just more people spreading rumors that they do not know anything about. We try very had to please our customers and as any bowling center owner knows this is impossible. I can prove everything I have said can you????? Jodi Hughes, Owner, Tri City Lanes

i LOVE this bowling alley! it is SOOOO much fun and i love coming out here with my boyfriend. the people are so nice and they DO NOT judge me. 'cause i'm bald. and it's just so much fun to be out here and after we bowl we usually go and hang out it the parking lot because everyone is so friendly! and it's so quiet and closed off to where me and my boyfriend can "do stuff" (don't wanna get too personal on here) but it's just so much fun at this bowling alley and it's super duper clean and fun and awesome. And sometime's my boyfriend Alex will play pool. He wins money off of the games because i need a new wig and i might be pregnant. we really don't know. but. point is. this place is tha {deleted}! love forever and always your bowling queen; miss diva herself; bald a** b*tch; CAROLINE!

me and my friends have started going bowling but i think we made the wrong choice of where to go. this place s*cks. glow bowling had hardly any music at all, and turns out we have to PAY to listen to music. a dollar for one song. no, thats not happening. and the lanes are really crappy. each time we've gone the pin things keeps knocking down our pins and taking turns from us. not to mention the beard lady who is an a**. acting like she was going to call to get it reset but then never picked up the phone. someone needs to pick this place up and make it nice again. seriously.

this place needs to bew shut down, it is a disgrace!! the teenage girls run around whoring in the parking lot, yes having sex in the parking lot in cars, pot smoking giving to underage kids, underage drinking, adults giving to them, their youth program is a joke!!!!! they dont influence schlorships, they dont inforce the rules they smoke drink whatever, the rule book is not worth the paper it wrote on!!!! the should be called whores in the alley?!! and some of the counter help cannot even make cheese sticks, i wish this place would be shut down, no under new mamnagement status, boarded up closed

Comment Date: 7/16/2010 Name: Walt
The big guy that works the counter is assume, he helped our kids, he said he's a coach and works with the youth league- we're bringing our kids back for that in the fall. We've been in there other times and the lady sits reading a book and doesn't seem to care that we are there. You should evaluate your staff if you want ur bowling alley to keep running. You really can't have it both ways- if someone comes when shes there they will think you don't care... Nice clean place though, good for my family

So, went glow bowling tonight. Found out so much. Came there with the family to have lights flashing, strobe lights, and blacklights. However, got there, lights were great, but, NO MUSIC. Every glow bowling there has been music played. As it started, the two ladies working turned the lights and music on. Everyone was shocked. We had the light show but NOOOOO MUSIC. Everybody began to get frustrated and started asking around. As i walked to the desk to ask them what is going on. They were counting their money and would not pay me attention. After saying MAM seven times, she finally turned to me and said "There's the jukebox, if you wanna hear it, you pay for it." Were paying TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS for bowling to have fun. Cutting out the music is worthless. All that was is for them to pocket a little money. It seemed this place has became all about money. Something needs to be done or get NEW MANAGEMENT to take it in control. This place USEDDD to be amazing. How bout making it less bout the alcohol, AND MONEY, and more bout the FUN WITH THE FAMILY??? :)

My friend and I homeschool our children and had scheduled a day off to take the children somewhere on a Thurs. We planned to take them bowling. We looked on the web-site for times, prices, and coupons. Since the bowling alley didn't open til 1pm, we went ahead and had lunch before. We got to the bowling alley and it was all being used by senior leagues. Now I don't have a problem with the leagues using the lanes, but why wouldn't they put that on their web-site? They list the times they are closed, so if the lanes are "closed" to the general public, why not put that? Then we were in Easley with nothing to do. If we had known before we could have planned to go to Greenville. Please put more information on your web-site...that's what it's there for!

i enjoy trilanes cause frendly but yallneed to fix it were if u come alot we get at least two free passes but thats all i can say oh oil the lanes a littel more cause it was dry last night

Comment Date: 1/11/2009 Name: Former U.S. Marine
If you go bowling during the nights advertised the games only cost $1 which is nice, the food is alright but steep, I agree with the comments about a foul odor, I went in the restroom and someone had clogged the toilet and there was a used condom lying in the floor. I told the worker when I walked out and she disgustedly went in to take care of it. On Friday and Saturday nights you have to pay a jukebox to play music (they used to play 98.1 f.m. and the music was free). I don't understand the sudden change in that. The owner of the pro shop is polite however the other workers could be a little more respectful and SMILE :-) I come here with my friends occasionally and it is fun, but small improvements should be made. Re-evaluate the workers for friendliness and professional customer service, allow outside food and drinks, the sweep bar and the pin reset machine do malfunction quite often, maybe updated equipment such as scoring machines. They should have signs up that if you choose to bring your own bowling ball some one on the opposite side of the ball return CANNOT use it unless the ask...For example I bought my own $120.00 ball (yes I know expensive but it looked cool and I wanted MY OWN) but the fellow beside my lane picked up my ball and before I could stop him he through it down the lane and when it came back up the shoot i looked at it and it had been chipped (about a .25 inch chunk was gone. When I showed him he said it must've already been there before he used it. I told the staff and they wouldn't do anything. I guess they should have signs that you can only use the house balls if you don't bring your own...people should respect your personal belongings. Also people drive like maniacs in the parking lot, spinning out and cutting sharp turns in the parking lot...not safe at night like glow bowling

Great bowling alley. Beer after work plus bowling and friends equals tons of fun. Love shooting pool and having fun up there at tri-city

Comment Date: 1/7/2009 Name: Jason Waddell
This place is the best! I love bowling here with my pals! Very clean, friendly service, 20 lanes make it spacious enough to accomidate anyone. Couldn't be better! The other comments about the staff being unfriendly are false. Maybe if people were nicer to the staff, they'd receive quality service in return. If anyone wants to check me out they can at {Sorry, no personal emails or myspace accounts - B2U Staff} I'd love to make new bowling pals!

Too many teens hang out in the parking lot blaring music and driving wreckless on friday and saturday nights. My 7 yr old daughter and I were nearly hit simply walking to our car. Alcohol should be limited. Bowlings great on dollar days. I wouldnt recommend glow bowling with children. I give it a 3 out of 5

Comment Date: 1/5/2009 Name: Kerry
Mean staff, they called me names insulting my sexual orientation. I WILL NOT come back!

Comment Date: 1/5/2009 Name: Tin Pin
I'm a teen and love going bowling here when I get the chance. I've bowled at Wade Hampton in Greenville and their lanes are a little nicer, but more costly. Tri-city lanes is a lot more affordable, and they don't allow smoking inside so it's easier to breathe. My friends and I have a blast bowling here. One negative thing I have to say is about the staff. It may be just me, but they're not very friendly or polite. It doesn't stop the crowds from coming in though. All in all it's a great experience...
