You can take care of Wisconsin traditions all in one location. Nice Friday Fish Fry which can be eaten in the dining room or bar area. Great service with a staff knowledgeable about the menu. Many locals come to dine with their families. You can either watch the bowling from the bar area or have fun with your friends on... More

My wife and I had the special which was prime rib. It was one of the best that I have ever had. I have eaten a lot of prime rib in my time but nothing compared to this. It came with a salad and home made bread which also was very good. Will certainly be back for more.

Had blackened whitefish and Cajun seasoned whitefish. Both were tastey and we'll prepared. The service can't be beat and the price is always moderate. Love their brandy old fashioned!

Wanted to bowl...every ball was light weight with kid size holes. Couple bigger men there must have had the only balls that were larger weight and finger size. Wife and friend bowled and had fun tho.

Sister Bay Bowl is one of my go to places whenever I'm in Door County. It highlights the quaintness of the peninsula in that the bowling alley has 6 lanes - that's right - 6!!! The tavern part is very typical Wisconsin, but the dining room is the best around. Begin your evening with an old fashioned Old Fashioned -... More

Perch was outstanding.. maybe the best I have had, and I am a Wisconsin lifer. I had heard the Bloodys were a must- they were good, but the perch was memorable. Potato salad was awesome too.

Best food in Sister Bay. Forget bowling , just eat and drink. Try any of the fresh fish and save room for the brand Alexander made with ice cream.

Brought my son and his family to open bowling and had supper afterwards. Penny and Paula always greet us warmly and the staff is exceptional. Food is fantastic and they have the best brandy oldfashions. When you are in Sister Bay you need to stop in for food and drinks .

Not much to say. If you want good food, fair prices and friendly service, this is the place. We have tried most everything in the county and the Bowl is best by far.
