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

We ate at the Bowl on Sunday and had their special of broasted chicken and ribs. It came with a salad and potatoes. I had the broasted and my husband had the hash browns. We both really like our food. The view of town is nice and the staff is friendly.

Very pricey drinks(beer) for a bowling alley! Nice bartender. A lot of cubs fans in the bar to watch the playoffs.

No reservations and people line up before the restaurant side opens at 4:30 for the Friday Fish fry. We could see why as the fish is great. Walleye and whitefish were especially good. Good service and fair prices.

Absolutely a highlight of our trips to door county has been eating at the bowl! Best perch always, and the broasted chicken and ribs are great. Fast friendly service, I was impressed with the number of staff, and how quickly they were able to turn the tables, and still tend to their customers. I got the chance to chat with... More

We love this bowling alley and the great fun we can have in between hikes or some colder periods during the day. An easy place for family fun.

Had heard about the good food at this place. Sat at a booth in the bar area. Took quite awhile to get noticed & acknowledged. Service was pretty slow & not that friendly. Ordered appetizer of potato skins, waitress explained they would be different than we might expect. They were EXCELLENT ! Only comment is that we both ordered prime... More

"Vintage" or "Quaint" would imply some degree of classiness, but the best word we found for the feel of this place is dated". Since the early 1950s, the Bowl has been run by the same family. In fact, our server was the granddaughter of the founder and regaled us with stories about her grandfather and Al Johnson, two pillars of... More
