The Bowl has a great Friday Fish Fry, so w went - 8 of us. Walked in and all but one small table were taken. But the dining room was wide open and empty. We stood around for about 5 minutes, no one greeted us or said anything, so we asked the bartender. He said 'she'll be right out' but... More

Dinner was a typical dinner in a casual atmosphere surrounded by vacationing families. Food was good and the fried perch was the best in the door county area. Their specials are truly specially priced at ten to fifteen percent discounts to the printed menu items. Table service is attentive and well done by the staff. We finished up the dinner... More

Great pizza! The bowling is old school, you score with a pencil not a computer. Great place to stop in for an old fashioned.

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
