Read and reread all the reviews of all the fish boil places and decided to go here to partake. We love white fish, and we were not disappointed. We got a lot to eat, good service, food was great, and loved being entertained by Earl. Keep the fish jokes flowing buddy!! Great place to go for a fishboil.

We visited the Old Post Office for their famous fish boil. We were hesitant to try it, but decided to partake in the fun, given the history of this tradition in DC. Though the food wasn't very good, that's not really why you go. Go for the show! We really enjoyed watching the fish boil before dinner - arrive early... More

We stopped here for breakfast on our last day in Door County. The breakfast was delicious, with large portions (of pancakes), and the food was reasonably priced.

We went here for breakfast after reading reviews on TripAdvisor and I am glad we did. We were seated in the front window and had a beautiful view. The service was great, very prompt. I had the cherry pancakes and enjoyed them. I hope to get back there sometime for the fish boil, we overheard many people raving about it.

Prior to dinner, we went out back and watched,the fish boil and... More

The food was great, and the view great, if you don't kind a very open concept where you feel like you are eating with all the other diners in a brightly lit room. In other words, there is no attempt to make the accommodations cozy or private. But it is clean, cheerful, and very bright inside, and the view is... More

We had breakfast here last week , It seemed to be a good place but nothing very special . It did have a great view of the lake . The prices were high as most places in Door county are this time of year.
