We had a number of excellent meals at the Bowling Club. The fish was the freshest we'd experienced for a long time.

The Fish Fry is something to behold. Beautifully cooked whether battered or not and the salad choice is good too. The atmosphere is friendly also.

Admittedly the food was excellent, and we knew everywhere in Lord Howe is necessarily expensive, but the venue itself was nothing special. To look at it, you might think this was a "budget" option, but the dishes and drinks were much the same price as anywhere else.
