Oh my, try the Salted Caramel Vanilla Cake!

After the delicious and generous servings of Friday Night Fish Fry (perch for each of us), we shared a piece of Salted Caramel Vanilla Cake. Mmmmm, wonderful. Next time we'll save room so we can each get a piece.

Okay, I have to admit that we almost never order anything but perch at the Bowl. So I am here to rave about the perch, which is just about the best in the county. Come for it anytime, or come on a Tuesday or Friday when they have the Perch Special, a slightly smaller portion for a smaller price with... More

Everything on the Bowl's menu is great but the perch is really outstanding. They also serve the best salad I have ever had in a restaurant. It is always fresh and chilled perfectly. I recommend their blue cheese dressing with blue cheese crumbles. Yummy!

Typical WI fish fry. It was quite busy and very noisy. The fried fish was decent - baked fish was mediocre.

Hometown favorite with ZERO atmosphere. Prime rib special always the best choice. Very limited bar choices, don't expect anything fancy. Nice service, prompt and aimed to please. Just a plain spot, probably best for families and seniors. Don't suggest for dates, romance or couples!

We were told by one of the shops in Fish Creek to go here for a good dinner. The sirloin steak and blackened white fish was great! The loaves of white & rye bread they serve were yummy! The service was right on! The bowling alley is quite antiquated, but we had a great time non the less!!! Would def... More

We only had drinks here. The people truly cared about the guest experience. We saw things we didn't like but it was not intentional or to be skimpy on service, it was just oversight. We'll be back. The outdoor bar was nice and we had fun. My wife did feel like she was ignored while my drink was kept fresh... More

The Sister Bay Bowl in a Main Stay Historic Restaurant with a Classic Bowling Alley. The food is consistently good especially the perch/walleye dinners. Although I love their Broasted Chicken. The service is very good and starts with a warm loaf of bread on your table. They also offer steak, ribs and delicious prime rib dinners, all of which are... More
