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

When you pay about 30 per adult and 18 for a child, you expect to get good quality service, good quality food and maybe good portion. However, We didn't get buffet as it was advertised. Two little piece of fish with a little bit potato are hardly what I call good quality food. Specially, the lady kept push fish tail... More

Great location and good food. We ate breakfast, but they seemed to have quite a few for the fish boil too.

We made a reservation for the fish boil. It was a good show, and the fish was really good. We sat outside where we could see the sunset. We enjoyed both the food and the scenery.

The fish boiling actually happens in a parking lot, so don't expect a lot of atmosphere. When it is time to get seated afte watching the fish boil, we had to wait in line for over half an hour as the fish chilled. The fish itself is good. And for the rest, i guess butter is a seasoning.
