“Nice family restaurant”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

The service here was great - very friendly server. The food was just average. Nothing specific to complain about, but nothing to write home about, either. The ribs were the best part of the meal.

“Classic WI Supper Club”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

Very busy for a Sunday evening, so we sat at the bar and had an Old Fashioned and struck up conversation with a local "Tom" and the bartender. We were seated in 20 minutes. Tammy did a great job and made sure everyone, including a "kids table", in her section were taken care of as quickly as possible. The food was flavorful and a great value, in the Supperclub tradition, but the chef could use a lesson in trimming a steak, as both of ours were a little tough/fatty on the edges and in the middle of my 12oz sirloin. However, this was minor and would not prevent us from returning.

“Another great dinner!”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

Every time we go to Door County we stop here to eat! My grandma & grandpa used to love it here when they were alive. We had 15 people in our group so they sat us at 2 tables next to each other...which was just fine! Both servers were great. And the food was wonderful too...ribs, steak, perch, whitefish, shrimp, etc. All was wonderful!

This place is truly a hidden gem. Don't be turned off by the name or the fact that they have a 6 Lane Bowling Alley. They know how to cook a meal, their services wonderful, and their portions are appropriate. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here and the staff was very attentive. We spent eight days in door County and this is the best meal that we had. Should've skipped several other restaurants in the area and just gone back here. Maybe next time we'll get a chance to bowl!!!!

“Not interested in our business”
Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

The Bowl has a great Friday Fish Fry, so w went - 8 of us. Walked in and all but one small table were taken. But the dining room was wide open and empty. We stood around for about 5 minutes, no one greeted us or said anything, so we asked the bartender. He said 'she'll be right out' but no one came. We asked him if we could sit in the dining room but were told that, for lunch, they don't serve there. One patron sitting at the bar pointed out that bar stools were available, but we had kids with us, so we just left. No one ever welcomed us, asked us or explained anything (like - 'We can seat you in xx minutes'.) OK, scratch this one off our list!
