Shrimp Lovers go casual

AC Tap looks like an unlikely place to eat shrimp, but this roadside bar (off 57 out of Baileys Harbor) has a tempura shrimp basket that is my favorite Friday night meal. Hubby always has the perch dinner and both baskets come with cole slaw, french fries or potato salad. I've tried a couple other... read more

We have been before and because we didn't want to wait in long lines near the tourist areas we came back to AC Tap with our boys (15-16yr). We had no wait, friendly bartender and amazingly fast excellent bar food! I had the Asian chicken salad and I loved every bite! Husband and kids had the burgers and they where... More

LOVE love love the sloppy joes here and the pulled pork. They have bags and a pool table. It's a nice little bar with good food. We usually stop here once or twice during our trips up to Door County.

The AC Tap is a wonderful place to come and have good cold drinks and delicious "bar" food. You can also play a round of the famous bean bag toss, play some pool, or darts. On top of the good sized menu, they do a special and homemade soup each day as well. The best part is.. they serve food... More

Last weekend, we stopped at the AC Tap for a few beers & appetizers. When a friend of mine was going to sit at the bar where a glass was sitting, another patron said someone sitting there. No big deal, it happens. But the bartender said "open your eyes". If said with a smile, I can take a litttle playful... More

The AC Tap has been a Door County staple for generations but this ain't your Daddy's AC Tap. From the new exterior to the expanded kitchen to the full menu and open floor plan, the AC Tap offers an enjoyable experience for locals and tourists alike. The full service bar will cover your all your beverage needs but the real... More

This place is not your typical Wisconsin dive bar. From the outside yes, but inside they had the ceilings covered with tin advertisements of beers, etc. Pretty big inside too. I ordered the cheeseburger and my hubby had the pork sandwich. The burger was so tasty!!

We went for the Friday night special - a fried perch plate - and were so happy we did! Order at the bar, find a seat, and kick back with a beverage until your steaming hot, perfectly prepared dinner arrives. This was the best fried perch I've ever had. Period. Opted for the potato salad instead of the fries -... More

Went because friends took us there. Went back because we enjoyed it. Clean ,good food, and affordable. What else do you want? Best Fri night fish fry in Door County. Sushi on Tuesdays.....better than grocery store sushi! Give it a go!
