Nice but not many chooses on menu

Good food. Especially the cheese plate and salad. Not much of a selection on menu. Been twice but most likely we won't go back.

Our first visit to this restaurant did not disappoint! The atmosphere was cozy; our quest for a romantic dinner for two was complete! The menu offerings were varied and we had a hard time choosing! We highly recommend the roasted brussel sprouts as an appetizer and the almond cake with olive oil ice cream for dessert. The wine list is... More

We were freezing cold and wanted to quickly find a restaurant which wouldn't be a far walk from our car. Our luck, we stumbled upon the Whistling Swan. We made a reservation before they opened for dinner and waited 30 minutes in the reception room,in front of a cozy fire. So glad we did. Before apps, they brought us beet... More

We made an off season visit to Door County over the Thanksgiving weekend. After a friend recommended the Whistling Swan we made a reservation and headed in for our first visit. I was immediately impressed with the decor and the ambiance. There was a warm fire burning and I really liked the unique decor. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable... More

This restaurant is a warm cozy restaurant. We were here in early November and it was cold and raining, so with the fireplace going the atmosphere is great. The food was good, our service was great. They have a nice wine list. We would go back again

We live, part time, about six miles from The Whistling Swan, and it over the years for us it has earned its place as one of the special restaurants in Door County. The restaurant exudes warmth from the roaring fireplace, the elegant but comfy setting and the attentive service. The wine list is very good, the food is adventurous and... More

Finding a quiet, intimate, quality place to have a romantic evening seems to be getting harder. The Whistling Swan in Fish Creek, WI answers the search. The eloquent setting, exquisite culinary choices and artistic presentations compliment the superb customer service provided by manager Scott Zimmerman and Lail Marmor. We enjoyed our wine and the ambiance and know you will too.

This was our second time visiting the Whistling Swan as our first experience, last year, was wonderful. Unfortunately, this visit was marred by terrible service, although the food was still great. We received a perfect table (which I had requested in making the reservation, as it was my husband's birthday) and the birthday was acknowledged by the person who seated... More

Celebrated my dad's birthday with a wonderful meal. We each ordered a different first course to sample and all were delicious. Loved the risotto. Entrees all delicious. Beautiful porch provided great ambience. Can't wait to go back next time in Door County.
