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.

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.
