Cute and delicious!

Very cute little restaurant with exceptional food. We went two days in a row for breakfast. The view is amazing, the price is right, and the wait staff was friendly.

If you want the classic fish boil experience this is the place. Great fun to watch the fire explode, fish and fixin's very good, staff were very nice, they de-bone your fish for you, and they had seating options during the week, unlike some fish boil places late in the season.

Great place to get introduced to a traditional Door County Fish Boil. Not only do they serve it but they let you watch the preparation over an open fire in the back and give you some history and stories around the famous dish. It's one of those "you just gotta do it" to say you have. And the food is... More

We had breakfast here one morning and though the food was good, it was overpriced (to us). Nice view of the water though.

We went here for our rehearsal dinner, and we had about 18 people. Well, 2 of those people were added on last minute, and the restaurant was able to accomodate that. When I made reservations they seemed pretty strict on knowing who would be having what for dinner (not all of my family likes fish). So, I had to tell... More

This restaurant had a nice fish boil. For around $20 you get the boilmaster's talk out at the boil. Then you go in to the buffet where you are given two pieces of boiled white fish, potatoes and onions. Tasty coleslaw and lemon and pumpkin bread rounded out dinner. Also included in the price was your choice of soft drinks... More

This is an old-fashioned, white tablecloth restaurant. If that's what you like for breakfast, this is the place for you. My preference is for a more casual atmosphere, however, and so this was not really my cup of tea. The food was fine, but one can find food of equal or better quality in Door County for less money. But,... More

We've been coming to Door County every October for over 30 years. We always do at least one fish boil. If we do one, it's White Gull Inn. If it's two, Old Post Office is the other one. Pros: the view! see picture and the ample space around the boil with entertaining history from boil master. Cons: If you are... More

We came here on a Sunday morning there was 4 of us. We got seated right away The coffee was good with flavor and the breakfast pancakes were huge, the omelet was good. Can't saying anything bad, the service was excellent and I would be coming back next year when I return in August.

We did the fish boil and weren't disappointed at all. In fact the fish was remarkably good. The service was also remarkably good.
