Based on the other reviews, you have thought it would have been better, but unfortunately it was a sad state of affairs. From the time we walked in - we couldn't wait to leave. :-( The soup was tepid, not hot which is what we were hoping for. For the price that you pay to eat here, it was a... More

You cannot be disappointed by your choice off this menu. I had French toast that was so light and perfect. And the service was excellent.

Twice we have tried this restaurant as it is a great location and atmosphere. We loved the idea of the soup Buffett. After getting ill the first time. We decided to try again. Unfortunately the soup was just lightly warm. We choose something else. And have not returned.

My wife and I each had the omlette breakfast. It was good. The omlette was light & fluffy. Breakfast is served until 11:00am. We were a little after that, but they were kind to accomodated us.

Stopped here for lunch. My wife and I had the special, which consisted of a half of a Reuben Sandwich with Thousand Islands Dressing on the side, a slice of cantaloupe, and a small bunch of red grapes. Our son opted for the Philly Steak Sandwich. All items included a cup of one of five soups, along with a thick... More

We stopped by this restaurant at the end of our week in Door County. We really enjoyed the variety of soups available, and their fresh bread is delicious. Meals came quickly, plates adorned with fresh ripe fruit. My dad said his Angus burger was probably the best he'd ever had. And you can't leave Door County without having a piece... More

It was only me in the early morning, and no one was in the place; but still....from the server saying "just one!" and her overpowering perfume, to having to ask for a coffee refill in an empty restaurant, to the cook who decided omlette means scrambled eggs, to walking in on said cook sitting on the pot in the bathroom...
