Great atmosphere and so quiet compared to the noisy Golf club on the night we visited. Great food and service , nice clean freshly renovated establishment where we were made to feel welcome. Recommended.

We went to the bowling club on a Saturday night for dinner. All the locals where out so it made for an evening filled with lots of noisy chatter among the patrons. A good feed at a reasonable price.

Izak does a great job. We love his food especially the fish. Manila honey smoked pork chop was a hit with my husband. Really yummy snd tender but I can’t go past the grilled trevalla or kingfish sashimi.

We had heard some good things about the restaurant at the LHI Bowling Club, so were happy when we secured a reservation. It was Tuesday - and we only discovered when we got there that Tuesday night is Pizza night. We are not huge fans...of pizza, but the only other option on the menu was chicken wings, so we stuck with pizza. They were fine - vegetarian and pepperoni - and not too salty which can be a problem with pizza. Plain and simple - I suspect gourmet-style pizzas are yet to hit LHI. But if you are on the island and like your pizza, you could do much worse than try the Bowling Club.More

Went to the bowling club for a meal in the evening. Such a great local atmosphere. Great view of the mountains behind the bowling green. I was reluctant to try the local King fish after a disastrous first try the night before at another local...restaurant. I was assured the meal would be great and it most certainly was. Their chef produced a mouth watering taste filled meal that I enjoyed immensely. It totally restored my faith in eating local fish. An enjoyable evening and a free ride home. Great experience.More

My 6 year old and I enjoyed our dinner there. They had a good selection of kids meals and my entree and main were pretty good for the price. It was the peak of summer so the place was packed so there were queues galore....Service was slow but moving along and wait staff were great. There will be a delay in bus service back as the wait staff double as drivers! Overall, a fun night and a good chance to bump into all the locals you'll see during your visit.More

We had a couple of meals at the Bowling Club. Tuesday night is pizza night and seems very popular. The main menu didn't change when we visited and was very limited. However, the meals were delicious. On our visits it was very popular with families....Make sure you book to guarantee a table. The bus to transport you home was out of action, so you will have to either walk or bike ride home. The part on order was due to arrive within the next week.More

We brought our 12 year old grandson to the island in 2018 and he loved afternoon bowls. Everything provided. Thanks Bowlo
