Latest Middleton Sport Bowl news and reviews

JM ate the BBQ burger with a lemonade.
Nichole ate the baked haddock dinner with a soda.
The bill was $28, or $14/person, plus tip.
JM gave Middleton Sport Bowl a B; Nichole gave Middleton Sport Bowl a B- (see our grading rubric).

Middleton Sport Bowl is a real jack-of-all-trades place.  Sure, there's bowling and a bar.  But also, Wisconsin Lottery products, and reasonably sized menu. And fish fry.

Despite having ample nearby competition, MSB has a pretty good fish fry offering. Nichole got the baked haddock, which was a huge fillet, well-seasoned, with all the fixin's, including drawn butter and a light yet creamy slaw.

JM opted to try the burger menu instead and ordered a BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger.  He got a cheeseburger with a side of BBQ sauce and, upon delivery, the server noticed right away that the bacon had been left off. He returned promptly with a side of bacon making this the most deconstructed burger JM's had on an A to Z trip. It was pretty good all things considered.

The star of the whole show, though, was the interesting starter. The cheese curds were block cheese that had been cut into cubes (so, no longer curds or curd shaped), battered and deep fried.  Cubes are the perfect way to consume curds that are no longer curds, n'cest pas?

The service was attentive, even at the beginning when there was hardly any room or space for noise. By the time we left, the regulars who eat on their way home (or came from home early) had all cleared out, leaving just a handful of later diners and stragglers watching meaningless late season baseball. And us with some cheese curd dice.
