No wait. White/Rye loaf of bread was so dry it was inedible. Veggies were soft, room temp. Whitefish hadn't been trimmed of excess grey/brown part. Bad food.

The Tuesday and Friday fried perch specials are delicious and reasonably priced. Pitchers of New Glarius and other beers are also well-priced. On a other Monday we enjoyed a large platter of perfectly "Broasted" chicken.

This was the first time my wife and I ate here. We were not disappointed. Great service and great food. The portions were huge and done to perfection. When we saw many locals entering, we knew it was the place for us.

Sister Bay Bowl is a classic. It has amazing cod on any day. Fresh, never frozen food. It always has a small wait time, but this food is phenomenal.

Yes - it's a bowling alley, a bar and a supper club!! There's a reason the restaurant is usually packed - the locals know it well and visitor's are catching on. They have delicious food. Steaks, ribs, pasta and seafood are served along with wonderful salads and warm breads. The staff is super friendly and they can accommodate families and... More

Good, wholesome food. Family place. Get there early, otherwise you may have to wait a while. It's worth the wait.
