I have been to Skaliwag's about 10-15 times and have loved the food and the atmosphere. This last weekend it was horrible, the food, the atmosphere and the service for the low price of $165.00 for 4 people. I have had a bad experiences the last 3 times I have been there but always loved it and... read more

Just left the restaurant and we are already planning our next trip. We ordered the crispy shrimp and the duck rolls for appetizers. The flavors were incredible. For dinner we ordered the new York strip and the lobster ravioli, again the food was delicious and cooked perfectly. Thank you Chef Chris and thank you to the staff for making our... More

Second visit to Skaliwags. Arrived at 4:45 and walked out two hours later. Ordered grits, lobster Alfredo and lobster ravioli. Grits were great. Ravioli was good, but could have been a larger portion with more sauce. Lobster Alfredo was good, but didn't really taste like Alfredo- more like chicken base. Gripes- Beer served in a chipped mason jar, menu written... More

We stopped in at this place on a Friday evening for dinner. We had heard good things about it, particularly the food. We knew it was a (self-styled, per their menu on the wall) dive bar and it professed a five star menu. The menu, on the wall only, not printed, leans heavily toward seafood. My wife had the ahi...

We waited 2 1/2 hrs for a table and another 45 mins for are food. The food was good but not worth the wait. Talked with other guests that were not happy with the poor service. They don't take reservations but if you know someone you can get quicker service ( cut ahead of others who are waiting). The atmosphere... More

I'm glad I went to this restaurant with a colleague who has been there many times before. Because if I had entered it myself, I would have immediately backed out and ran. It really looks like a cheap bar with a row of stools and several tables. However, I had one of best meals ever. I ordered a fillet which... More

We had an awesome experience at Skaliway's, I've recommended it to many of my friends. We went to Algoma as part of a wine tasting experience and someone at the winery suggested Skaliwag's for dinner. She said you will have to wait, but it's worth it, and it was. Delicious food and Chef Chris came out to chat with us... More

This was the most amazing meal I believe we have ever had!! It might be the smallest place ever but if you are willing to wait a bit you will not be sorry! My husband is a chef and said that this place is in the map for sure! Bartenders needed to be a little more attentive when we arrived... More

Absolutely fantastic food! Great chef! The place looks like a dive from outside but once you go in, it is cozy & friendly. Service is great. The chef came out & talked to everyone. A must go for anyone coming to Door County or Algoma.
