We stopped at Caroline's Restaurant on our way up to Door County, Wi on August 6th. Tyler did a great job of taking care of us. We enjoyed our breakfast, the Main Street Platter is huge and could be shared by 2 people.

This was to be a special night with good friends. This was the first time we had been that this restaurant. Restaurant surroundings were pleasant. I don't think this is a good restaurant for children. Food was good but not excellent. We had the lobster mac & cheese. Lots of mac & cheese and very little lobster or any other... More

There are other places nearby to eat (Manna Java at the Roshek Bldg, etc.) that will be better quality and nicer surroundings. If you're tied to the hotel for breakfast, it's okay. Go for items off the ala carte menu ($2 each) rather than one of the "plates"; most of the eggs seem to be pre-made for the plates and... More
