Yup you can bowl in Irmo

Good kids plans for summer. Friendly staff. Food is about what you would expect but there are some good places to eat close by.

I've been coming here since I was a kid. Twenty years later, it's still a pretty cool place to go with friends. Especially at night. It's much better now that people are not allowed to smoke by the lanes!

We've taken the whole family here several times. We even came on new years two years ago, and they had blacklight bowling. They offer several deal days, bowling teams, and a very accommodating snack bar. It's a little older, but it is the only one in town.

We are so lucky to have such a clean, friendly bowling establishment in Irmo/Columbia South Carolina. My children and their friends love to bowl here all summer and look forward to it all year. The staff is helpful, courteous and always nice to the kids. As a mom, I appreciate their patience and stamina!

The parking lot and exterior of this place are showing lots of age, as several reviewers have noted, but the interior is pleasant enough. I don’t bowl anymore myself (problem shoulder and knee), but I do like to watch the action from time to time. I did that at Anchor Lanes last Saturday morning and really enjoyed myself. Although fewer... More

There was one off the clock employee who tried to help us with our constantly malfunctioning lanes, but after he left, it was like pulling teeth to get any help. After the befuddled employee couldn't get our lane to keep score at all anymore, we decided to leave and asked for our money back for our partial game that we... More

A few of us 30 year olds decided to go bowling at Anchor Lanes. This used to be the place we'd go for birthday parties back in highschool. Still pretty fun. Things seem a little dated and it looks scary from outside. But we had fun once we were inside. They even made a fresh batch of popcorn and brought... More
