“Okay Meal”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

The Sister Bay Bowl is an average nostalgic type of restaurant. We had the prime rib, which was okay. The service was good, and the wine value was good. However, for what you get the cost was a bit steep. For the money, I would suggest going womewhere else while in Sister Bay.

“Wow, what happened?”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

My memory of the Sister Bay Bowl was fantastic food, WHAT HAPPENED??? We went on a Thursday night and the place wasnt very busy, which we thought would work well for us. Got a table at the corner, best view of Sister Bay! The waitress seemed more intent on doing her sidework than serving us... I got the feeling we were bothering her? We ordered a scallop dish and one of the specials of the night, a pork tenderloin plate. The scallops were horrible, breaded beyond recognition and gross. The pork tenderloin was tastey, but there was a pile of white mush they called mashed potatoes and some steamed vegetables that even a brand new cook wouldnt have served, they were disgusting. We were on the verge of sending everything back, but didnt want the hassle. Sorry Sister Bay Bowl. I'm not sure what happened, but we had a horrible experience with your food and service. Two thumbs down.

“It's OK, but won't be going back.”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

For some reason, so many people said how good the food is here. I remember thinking that a bowling alley isn't where I would expect awesome food, but decided to try it for lunch. Perhaps their dinner menu is better, but their lunch menu is super basic. Typical bar food. My lunch was good but someone else had a totally overcooked/dry Rueben. The prices were so so, but overall, I wasn't feeling like this was a place I would go to again, unless it were the only place open in the city. It's fair.

“Won't Strikeout Here!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Just like the good old days bowling alley and bar. Keep your own score no automatic score keeping here. Lanes in great shape small but cozy. Bring your own ball or use theirs also have shoes available. Beverages and food available in bar. Can't miss this fun spot if a new or old time bowler Don't build them like these anymore! :0)

“Simply good”
Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

No who-ha just good food. I grew up in Ephraim and the Bowl has been a place for good food for decades. Always greeted with friendly staff, willing to make your meal an enjoyable one. We are back in Door County quite often and we like stopping in and enjoy either a sandwich or a dinner.
