The bar and grill is inside the Bowling Alley. It can be noisy if people are bowling and talking loud. You order at the window and pick up your food. You can get pretty fast service. Not real friendly depending on how busy it is. Favorite of some of the older residents. Good value for the money. Wouldn't do on a regular basis. Hard to get a table in the evening. Lunch is a better time to get a table or you sit in the bar area.

We are lucky to find this great locals place for dinner. Food was good and service was excellent. Very friendly establishment owned by husband and wife.

When it is suggested that we eat at the Bowling Alley, we were skeptical, but the food was really good. Highly recommend. They had hamburgers, steaks, salmon, etc. Everything we had was delicious.

This was my second visit after the first was somewhat disappointing. I ordered the prime rib and it was a generous portion at a great price. The atmosphere is casual and the service was great the second time around.

Stayed over in Bishop on the way to Yosemite, we were recommended this restaurant by a gentleman who works at RadioShack, have to say we were a little apprehensive going to a bowling alley for our dinner but it was located very close to where we were staying so it meant my husband could have a beer. The place was very busy a small que but didn't have to wait long to find a table. The waiter was slow at cleaning our table, but have to say he was busy. We were very surprised when the food arrived- good wholesome food plus excellent value for money, we both had steak which was perfectly cooked medium rare. Good atmosphere
