First time visit to this establishment and thoroughly enjoyed the perch special. The salads were fresh and tasty. Locals highly recommend the ribs and specials but were in between lunch and dinner and not super hungry. Eating at the bar enabled us to watch the family's bowl and the diners in the restaurant. A lot of picture memorabilia in the... More

SO, I heard that the food at the bowling alley is out of this world. I usually like the hip and trendy spot with all that is new in the food world. I was reluctant, but hey, it's just one meal. THIS was incredible. Nicely made Maker's Mark Manhattan to get the show on the road. My perch fry was... More

A group of us (5 adults 4 teens) decided to bowl here during our recent trip to Sister Bay. The "classic" old school lanes and manual scoring brought back fond memories. It was fun teaching the "kids" how to keep score. Lane conditions and choice of house balls was terrible. The lighter weight plastic house balls were probably ok if... More

We were told about this gem by a couple we met at our hotel during breakfast. They have been to Door County many times. We are so glad they suggested we try it. The restaurant is very casual. We had their evening special, which was perch. Best fish ever! Friendly servers and unique setting.

The Sister Bay Bowl has our vote for best restaurant in Door County. We love the place and think we get the best value for dinners there, as they have reasonable prices, and the quality is excellent for both food and service. We usually end up eating there multiple times when we visit and always get the perch. Each piece... More

We had to visit Sister Bay Bowl more from a curiosity standpoint as much as anything. We were staying in Sister Bay and visited for a late dinner. We had a party of 3, and the dining room was pretty full, so we asked to sit in the bar area. The tables for dining were full in the bar, but... More

Not a supper club atmosphere, it was very busy and harried, but service was friendly and the food delicious. I didn't like that the plates and such were more diner-style.

Ate there this Summer for the first time...mostly because we had tried almost everywhere else in the area. The restaurant is in a bowling alley, but well separated. It has a menu that is not filled with over-precious "cuisine" or bird-portion entrees. Staff tends to be retired or senior citizens who have either worked there forever or have lived in... More
