I Was Satisfied

We had some family up to visit today, and while we were out showing them Door County, we stopped at the Rusty Tractor for the first time. We were a group of 6: me, my husband, my mother-in-law, my sister-in-law, and my two nephews (6 y/o and 7 y/o). We stopped in about a half hour before closing... read more

Six of us had breakfast here on Saturday 8/22. We all enjoyed what we ordered especially the French Toast. Wonderful! The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere is very casual and fun. Don't miss this great spot!!! It took a while for the order to come out, but who cares when you are on vacation!

Every time we visit Door County we stop at The Rusty Tractor for breakfast/lunch at least once. While this place is not advertised in any of the local Door County brochures, it is what I would consider a "hidden gem" of a place to eat on the outskirts of Egg Harbor, well worth the trip. The wait staff is extremely... More

My husband had the bratwurst and I had the hot turkey and cheddar sandwich with tomato. The side I chose was their baby bakers - small potatoes on a skewer grilled with butter. Everything was excellent. On the way out we bought some of the homemade caramels. Oh soo good.

We are sorry that you were disappointed with your visit at The Rusty Tractor Cafe. I am unsure why you would say we do not have gluten free items on our menu.

Nice cafe for a good traditional breakfast. The food was good, the service was good. If you like French toast, there is a daily stuffed French toast that appears to be a treat. I was disappointed that there was no cherry French toast. That was my reason to go to this cafe, as pictures in reviews showed this item. My... More

This place has delicious breakfast and lunch. Order the Bacon BBQ burger, omg my thirteen year old niece had to go back for it. Their breakfast is hearty and filling. Wonderful family place with family ownership and wonderful food. Love the chalkboard art and creative art gifts available.!!!

This place has been there for a while. It is a cute little place with a country store type atmosphere and a room with items for sale. The menu is extremely limited and the items on the menu are the only things you can get. NO substitutions. In place of omelets there are scrambled dishes. They are close, but you... More
