We ate at the Bowl on Sunday and had their special of broasted chicken and ribs. It came with a salad and potatoes. I had the broasted and my husband had the hash browns. We both really like our food. The view of town is nice and the staff is friendly.

Very pricey drinks(beer) for a bowling alley! Nice bartender. A lot of cubs fans in the bar to watch the playoffs.

No reservations and people line up before the restaurant side opens at 4:30 for the Friday Fish fry. We could see why as the fish is great. Walleye and whitefish were especially good. Good service and fair prices.

Absolutely a highlight of our trips to door county has been eating at the bowl! Best perch always, and the broasted chicken and ribs are great.

We love this bowling alley and the great fun we can have in between hikes or some colder periods during the day. An easy place for family fun.

"Vintage" or "Quaint" would imply some degree of classiness, but the best word we found for the feel of this place is dated". Since the early 1950s, the Bowl has been run by the same family. In fact, our server was the granddaughter of the founder and regaled us with stories about her grandfather and Al Johnson, two pillars of... More

The perch dinner on Friday nights is awesome, the best perch we've ever had. The people that run the place are friendly & they take care of you like family. Rosie the waitress is very sweet and friendly. Penny the owner sat and talked with us and then bought us a drink. That was so nice of her to do.

Great Saturday nite steak specials, fantastic steaks, prime rib with fantastic service. Be prepared for a bit of a wait during dinner time, but well worth it!
