The bowling area is a small part of this building. It's the supper club in this building that people line up for. The food is delicious. We found that it was wise to order the specials of the day as they were less expensive but extremely tasty. We were not there in a high tourist time (mid-week in early September)... More

We were guided to Sister Bay Bowl by a hostess at our hotel. It was delightful late evening surprise. The place was packed, but 1 drink sitting on the wrap around porch was long enough to be seated The atmosphere is what you would expect in a Wisconsin . Casual, friendly, lots of hustle bustle. The fish fry was great.... More

We waited for about an hour for a table and the wait was totally worth it! The Friday night fish fry was perfectly done and classic. The old fashioned's however could have used a little more attention. I prefer the fruit muddled and a bit of bitters which were all lost in the drink. Good service too!

We ran into some traffic issues on our way up, so we knew it was possible that our dinner options would be limited. Checked into our resort and they recommended Sister Bay Bowl. A little bit of a step back in time but in a good way! Food was fast and good! Great service.

The place was a favorite of the late WGN Radio host. Down home rustic cooking in the beautiful spot, overlooking the town. We've been coming to Door County for years and it's always fun to stop in for a classic Wisconsin supper club experience. The prime rib and the fish are fantastic. There's al fesco dining is particularly fun.

Where to begin? Let me just say that we are traveling with our little dog and it's hard to find places with outside dining areas where we are welcome. Sister Bay Bowl has tables outside on their porch overlooking the busy and noisy main drag, so we decided to give it a try after reading the reviews here on tripadvisor.... More

I recommend going on a Saturday, as Prime Rib is on special. The meat was so tasty and perfectly cooked. You almost did not need a knife.

We were looking for a late evening meal and the staff at Edgewater Resort recommended the Sister Bay Bowl and Husby's. We decided to try this restaurant. My husband got the perch dinner special and he was pleasantly surprised by the fish, homemade potato salad, and vinegar cole slaw. I got the shrimp and it was standard fried frozen shrimp,... More
