this is the worst place as far as bowling frontend staff. The manager is a rude,bimbo.I have never been treated with such disrespect and unbelievable horriable service. The lanes were not working, the game machines were broken, the bathrooms were nasty and the only place that usually is clean (the snake bar)was nasty as well. the lady who usally is there was not and man you could tell. I won’t be back and do not recomend this place to anyone.

After all the updates, the service is still sub-par. We need more choices in Knoxville.

I’m glad to see we are not the only ones who feel that the employees at Strike and Spare western avenue are some of the rudest people ever. It was as if we were annoying them by coming and spending money in there establishment. They are unconcerned about customer service and seem to care less if they have customers or not. Needless to say my family and friends will not be back.

{deleted} the manager is a witch. Very rude and has no idea how to run a bowling alley. The ladies at the snack bar are very nice but some of the other employees need attitude changes.

My friends and I went to this bowling alley a few nights ago and HAVE NEVER had such HORRIBLE customer service!! Nevermind the fact that it cost a total of $150.00 (which is probably the norm nowadays for three hours but still, when did bowling become so expensive?) our lanes kept messing up. I could have just let all of that go if it werent for the RUDE employees there!! I mean this litterally when I say I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANY MORE RUDE, HATEFULL, PUT OFF, ANGRY, ANNOYED OR JUST PLAIN MEAN WOMEN IN MY LIFE!!!!!!!! You know, forgive me for being born and raised in the south where hospitatility is one of our most recognized character traits, but in my experience when you smile at someone and say “Hello, how are you?” there should be some sort of a response not just a blank stare and “What do you need?”!!!!!!!!!!! Likewise, when told “Thank You” one would normally respond with “Your Welcome” right? I would have settled for either one of the women working the food/drink counter just to tell me to go take a long jump off a short pier or to kiss their butt or something……NOTHING!! At one point a few of us even tried the whole “Kill them with kindness” thing……NOTHING!! Sorry for the long rant but needless to say I will NOT be going back there and DO NOT RECOMEND this place to anyone who values good service….or ANY service for that matter.

The updates to this alley are pretty good. I like the new software that now gives you speed, etc. The new couches are a little tight on some lanes. If my lane keeps having a problem they don’t hesitate to move me. My preferred place to bowl between the 3 in Knoxville.

Just an average place to bowl. The mechanic will not stay in the back. How about some preventive

Bathrooms sure need updated. Doors won’t lock.
No hot water.

I must say I am very impressed. The service is awesome and the lanes are good. I have bowled there many times and I can only recall one time when I only had a sub- par time. Anyway, enjoy this compliment and keep it up. I love you Craig!

It’s a bowling alley, fairly average, could use a little updating on the sound system and ceiling tiles. Lanes are good, balls are average, nice place to just hang out and play with friends. Serves Beer, Liqueor, Jello Shots, Pizza, Burgers, Etc…
