We were visiting with some locals and asked for a dinner recommendation. They all said Sister Bay Bowl. We got there just before 6 which was good, because when we left, the place was packed. We asked to split our meal, and were told there would be a charge. No problem. What we didn't expect was to get an extra... More

Scallops, ribs, perch, burgers - all highly recommended. This is the last of a dying bred - a genuine supper club right out of the 1950s.

The Bowl is a Door County tradition with many families and locals. We got there before 5:30 on Tuesday night and had a short wait for a table. The atmosphere is fun and family-friendly. Delicious fish fry and efficient service.

We love going to Sister Bay Bowl. The atmosphere is great and the Friday night fish fry is the best. Can't wait for our next visit on a Friday night.

Sister Bay Bowl is a must if you are visiting Door County. We have been going here for 20 years and the food is always consistently good and fresh. The service is always good too! Their Friday nights get a little crazy for a wait but they have a nice bar and a newly added outdoor bar and seating area.... More

Sister Bay Bowl is an iconic restaurant in the heart of Sister Bay. We used to make sure to go at least one Friday per visit until they started serving it 2 times per week. Now it is easier than ever and if you don't feel like eating out you can get extra large portions to go. We do mostly... More

My brother recommended this place from his Door County visit and I'm so glad he did. Old photos on the wall, the locals sitting next to us talking about their parents working here... it was a delight. The perch was outstanding, and my first real taste of the fresh fish on Door County. I'll always remember that meal. The waitress... More

We were looking for an informal place to eat and this was it. Although it is also a bowling alley, the food is not bowling alley food. It is Wisconsin supper club food and prices. We started out with some cheese curds (hand battered and wonderful), followed by large dinner salads with freshly made bread. Then the sirloin, ribeye and... More

The lake perch is truly unbelievably good. Always consistently perfectly prepared. Have been eating here for decades and will continue. Great food, steaks too, super drinks and of course a six lane bowling alley. Stop by you will love this place...go perch, the clyde.
