Delicious, 5 star food in unusual surroundings

The restaurant was recommended by our B&B host and also the guests we shared breakfast with. Some had travelled miles, just to eat at this restaurant. The food is fantastic. Great choice and beautifully presented. Great vibe in the bar and service excellent. Friendly staff.

Exceptional food and service in a small Wisconsin bar. Was there in June and will be back again! Would recommend if any where near Algoma!

We plan our trip to Door County allowing us time to have drinks and food at Skaliwag's while staying in Algoma. Just love the food, as always the staff (Chef Chris, Jen, Kendra and Marshall) were on top of their game, and love the atmosphere! This night we had crab cakes, vegetable ravioli, mussels/clams/shrimp! Can't wait til the next time!!!!!!... More

The food here is absolutely incredible. Plenty of local color. The place is really a dive bar but the food the chef is plating is hard to believe. The shrimp and grits was as good as any low country cooking in South Carolina. The lobster ravioli was awesome. Don't let the dive bar look distract you. This is a place... More

This is one of the best restaurant experiences I've had in a while. The place only has 30 small tables and a bar, however they were able to accommodate a party of 10. The food was fantastic, the service was great and everyone had a wonderful time. The menu changes daily and has a good variety. It may look like... More

Oh Boy! This place is FABULOUS! I will certainly be back next month and try something different! Like they say....Five Star Restaurant in a Dive Bar! Truly is! The food and cooks/staff are the Bomb! I had the scallops, others had ahi tuna, steak and shrimp. All was just amazing! Try it out!

Great gourmet food in a little dive bar. Fish, beef, pastas, pork chops, scallops, cheese grits, grilled romaine...you can't go wrong.

If you like seafood especially, you won't be disappointed - Chef Chris has a "Hawaiian connection" for flying fresh fish in every other day. Watching the chefs maneuver in the tiny kitchen (out in the open and visible to all patrons) is like watching an intricate choreographed dance. She-crab bisque is almost orgasmic! If you're out and about at other... More

Stopped here on my bicycle ride to Door County. Have been here twice before and have always enjoyed the food. I also really like that the outstanding food was served in a quintessential Wisconsin bar. Now they have created a patio to the east of the bar and they were not serving inside. I walked over just after opening time... More
