This was one of the highlights of our trip. The kids enjoyed watching the preparation out back. I highly recommend eating outside if weather permits. We were able to sit and watch the sun go down over the bay. Staff was very kind and attentive. Only drawback was the length of time it took to get your food, as it... More

Really enjoyed our meal at this restaurant. The food was excellent. The fish boil demonstration was appreciated...fun to watch your food being prepared by a Door County native. The fish was sweet and tender, and we appreciated the server de boning our filets. Worth a visit!

Ate here on our hotel recommendation as well as trip advisor rank. Looked like from the reviews that it could be busy so we got there at 7:30 when they opened and got a table right in front of the window... Until the Vanagon parked in front of us. "Compact car" spots only, really??? Cherry Belgian waffle was amazing, cherry... More

We had breakfast at the Old Post Office Restaurant! The food was delicious, the atmosphere very neat and clean, and the staff very friendly. It is right across the road from the shore, so it's a pretty sight to see outside too!

We went here for the fish boil. Arrive about 30 minutes before meal time to check in (they will show were your table is at this time) then head out back to watch the fish boil. We enjoyed the information and stories told by the boil master. Afterwards you will line up to enter the restaurant and are served buffet... More

Great time experiencing a first time fish boil. Torch was great at explaining the process of the boil. The fish was great and they offered alternatives for people who don't like fish. We sat on the front porch overlooking the bay and enjoyed a gorgeous sunset. Price was reasonable.
