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.

We went here for dinner one evening as part of an organized cycling tour. I must say that when I was told we were eating at a bowling alley, I was a bit skeptical. Yes it is a bowling alley and boy it is popular and crowded! We had the perch and it was the best perch dinner we had... More

Fun place to visit & bowl. Open year round. Self scoring bowling alley. There are definitely better priced & better food options. About $20 for a meal.

Great broasted 4 piece dinner special with soup or salad, potato and fresh bread. There is also a 2 piece with barbecue ribs as well. Great service, full bar and no waiting in November and plenty of other items to choose from if chicken is not your favorite. Skip the regular deserts (they're great) but go for an after dinner...

Stopped because we heard they made a really good Old Fashioned. The bar area was being run by a couple younger staff and they had no interest in serving us. They weren't that busy, but took their time getting to us and serving us. On top of that, the Old Fashioned was below average. Needless to say, we were really... More
