This fish boil was terrific! The man doing the cooking explained that they ALWAYS use fresh fish, not frozen. Everything was perfectly cooked. The event is well run with a minimum of wait time considering the large amount of people being served at the same time. Our served took the bones out of our fish, a nice touch. Nice size... More

Old Post Office only serves breakfast and Fish Boils. We LOVE their breakfasts. Cherry pancakes were terrific; Omelettes were large and tasty; service was prompt and friendly. Of course the view of Eagle Harbor adds greatly to the experience. Better than Al Johnson's, up the road in Sister Bay, in our opinion.

Nice to have the history explained; don't worry if you are at the back of the serving line, there is plenty of food and being last, you might get extras

As locals, this is one of our very favorite breakfast places. It's hard to decide between the omelet with ham and cheese or their wonderful waffle... The view and the service is always good. No wonder we visit so often :)

We ate there for their traditional Door County Fish Boil. You start with an explanation about the fish boil and you watch them boil the fish. It's moor exciting than it sounds. This is a must when visiting Door county, WI.

this restaurant has a fish boil every night. And after being in the area for 10 days I would say go to either Pelletiers. for the fish boil.

Stopped here for breakfast and just loved the view we had of the water. Service was great and the French toast was wonderful. Nice crispy outside, while soft and yummy inside. Would love to stop here for breakfast all the time. Their placemats tell about a bit of Ephraim history too.
