We ate here our first morning in Door County. The breakfast was excellent and if you are a cherry fan the Air Mail Belgian waffle (very light) with cherries is superb. We ate breakfast here four days in a row, it was that good! All the staff are kind and work hard to make your experience a good one. It... More

We got there early for the fish boil preparations, Earl does a great job with the food and the jokes! Food was very tasty and we sat at one of the outside tables which over looks the bay. Beautiful setting. Cherry pie is included!

The meal itself is really good- the fish is not overcooked and the portion is right. They make their own bread and of course who does... More

We stopped at this restaurant for breakfast on a recent motorcycle trip to Door County. This area being famous for cherries, so we had to order the cherry pancakes. I had looked at a full stack of three, but our server warned me that they were really big............she was right. I had ordered the short stack at two and they... More

I highly recommend the cherry pancakes! They were delicious, fresh, and hot. My friend and I were able to get a table outside with a lovely view of the water. Get here early in the summer, or you may be in for a bit of a wait.

What an amazing place to eat! I watched the famous "fish boil" out back and was intrigued. What an interesting way to cook! The cook leader told lots of jokes and explained step-by-step what he was doing. It was very entertaining and a bit smoky. The fish was boiled with vegetables and placed in at the end when the fire... More

This is one of our favorite places to have breakfast in the summer. Gorgeous setting! We can walk to breakfast because we stay in Ephraim. The view from any table in the main section is a water view of Eagle Harbor. The Cherry Pancakes are the best anywhere with fresh cherries! And a little known secret…their Fish Boil is the... More

The Door County "Fish Boil" experience at The Old Post Office Restaurant is fantastic. Along with a history lesson from the 'Boiler' and the great smells in partaking in the process, the end product...the food...is outstanding! The staff is friendly and professional, and the restaurant is clean & very cute. Then there is the view of the lake...wow, especially at... More
