Great Fish Boils!

The best fish boil we have found in Door County! Very friendly staff and the food is excellent! Breakfasts are also excellent.

Boil master had a full audience tonight. The iron kettle was boiling over a hickory fire and he entertained the crowd with the history of the fish boil. So he says it is only to be experienced in Door Co. The flames were explosive at the boil over. Served buffet style the food was plentiful (although) I could have eaten... More

We stopped for breakfast on our way to Washington Island. The breakfast was great. Good coffee, great omelettes, and bacon was cooked just right. Our waiter was very attentive. I would definitely go back.

The Old Post Office does a fish boil, which is a fun dining experience in Door County. Many people have described it, so there isn't much to add. The "boil master" was pretty entertaining and provided some of the history of the area and the tradition. He also gave information about where the fish come from and how they are... More

For dinner and a show, this is the place. You first head to the back area to watch the stages of the fish boil, concluding with the boil-over. Dinner is buffet-style, but the portions are adequate.

We ate breakfast here multiple times during our recent trip to Door County. The breakfast menu is varied and offers some excellent options at reasonable prices. I especially liked the Cherry Pancakes. The cherries are included in the pancakes. There is the option to order either 2 or 3 pancakes. The pancakes are huge, so if you order 3, you... More

We have been vacationing here the last 5 years and have eaten breakfast at many places but this was the best. I guess the proof is that every single table in the restaurant was occupied the entire time we were there. My wife had the cherry pancakes and I had the more traditional eggs (sunny side up and perfectly done)... More

This fish boil was a very good experience. We did one in Fish Creek many years ago, and were not impressed. It kept us away from ever wanting to do one again, for thirty years, sad to say. An acquaintance recently told me that he didn't like fish boils either, until he tried this one. So this past Sat night... More

We went to fish boils in Fish Creek's Pelletier's Restaurant, the White Gull Inn and the Ephraim Post Office. Everything was great at all three. Pelletier's: We liked the crowd, good value, no bread. White Gull: best pie (included ice cream), best breads, no onions were served (they were at the others). Post Office: ice cream was extra (at least... More
