Stopped in for lunch and found something interesting. In the front left corner of the building there are chairs and a sofa with a 1960's TV cabinet with a gold fish aquarium inside it. So you can sit down and watch "fish TV", pretty clever. The building is old and the floor shakes when people walk by. The tables closes... More

While a bit pricey, a great atmosphere, great menu and great service. Tony was friendly, affable and a great server all around. While we didn't have the lobster boil, it sounded quite good. Eat outside, overlooking the lake, during your visit and have some of the best whitefish (from local Hickey Bros) in Door. So fresh and tasty!

Thanks for reviewing! We started featuring Kobe beef a couple of years ago and are always complimented on the dish! And, we have to agree, fresh Lake Michigan whitefish from Hickey Brothers is the only way to go! We can't thank you enough for writing here -- and will look forward to seeing you again! More

We ate here twice on a recent trip to Door County - a Saturday night dinner and lunch a week later. Both times we were very happy with our choice! Our first meal was later in the evening, and the wind was whipping around, so we chose to eat inside. We were lucky enough to get a table near the... More

We love that you experienced us for two meals and in two locations! Our outside waterfront dining area is extremely popular and people love sitting out there anytime -- but particularly on Wed, Fri, Sat & Sun evenings when we do the lobster boils. They love seeing the wood fire and watching Eric run between the building and the pot... More

We dined at this restaurant 3x in the week we stayed in Door County. The food is excellent! We had the Whitefish , and a dish with Shrimp and Orzo that was excellent! It's a pricey place, but nice if you want a treat! Try to reserve a table by the Lake View - they are the best! They also... More

My husband and I made online reservations to have dinner here on a Sunday night, around 8 pm. We opted to eat later because we normally eat late and also to avoid a crowd. Luckily, the restaurant was not crowded so the table right in front of the window was available. The friendly host took us right to it. Great... More

We certainly appreciate your comments! And we understand about the sounds in the dining room. We love our old building with the authentic hardwood floors and tintype ceiling -- but when the buildling was built over a hundred years ago, they weren't concerned about noise levels. We do have people working on simple ways to reduce the way voices can... More

We make a point to try different restaurants while traveling, but the Harbor Fish Market was so delicious that we came back twice. I like that they buy some fish from a local fish market (Hickey Brothers Fishing… worth a visit, too!), so you are truly eating local. Aside from that, the service is outstanding and the food, well… it... More

We needed dinner on our way to Door Shakespeare. There looked like a couple of good choices so it was a toss up on where to go. Landed at the bar for a pre-dinner cocktail and found a fantastic bartender. She had great knowledge of the area, friendly and excellent customer service. She was so nice we stayed for dinner....

Having Door Shakespeare right near by is wonderful! Such a great neighbor! I believe that Jennifer was your bartender that night -- she loved helping you and she's so happy (as are we) that you took the time to write a review here! Have a wonderful summer! More

We had lunch at the Harbor FM&G on our way to Sister Bay. The clam chowder was good but the pork sandwich was average as was the lobster roll and chicken ceasar salad wrap. The view of the lake was nice and the service good.

We are sorry that your visit with us wasn't so wonderful. Our Harbor whitefish chowder is made here using local whitefish -- and I will check with the staff to be certain nothing has changed with our recipe. It is one of our most popular items and we have become known for it -- so we want to be certain... More

service fair. Food was very rich (cheese, butter) and since my stomach felt touchy that day, I had a hard time chosing and went for a rissoto. It was very good. It was rich, but I lived. Server was a bit unattentive, but we werent in hurry and didn't need anything anyway.

We are "locals" and one of the drawbacks to that situation is that sometimes you have an experience, draw a conclusion and fail to test your opinions periodically. I confess that we just had an eye-opening experience at The Harbor Fish Market in Baileys Harbor. Perhaps our last visit wasn't very impressive and so we have driven past this restaurant... More

Wow -- thank you so much for the lovely review. I have already printed it and placed it where the staff can see it. Oksana is our lead server and I have to agree that she is terrific. I am glad that it sounds like we'll be seeing you again! Thanks so much! More
