We visited the Whistling Swan based on TA reviews and we weren't disappointed. We had the Diver Scallops (perfectly done), the Salmon (exceptional, devoured by a 15 year old boy) and the Pork Chop with Maple Mustard Sauce. I don't even know how to describe how good the pork chop was. We're sometimes a little hesitant when ordering a pork... More

The food here is good and refreshingly the focus is on quality rather than quantity. Selection of desserts was limited though. Nice classy atmosphere but lacked a bit of warmth.

This restaurant has continued to maintain a very high level of quality even as some other places in Door County seem to have slipped a notch. The ambience, especially sitting on the veranda, is great. Too many places are over-energetic when it comes to the noise level, whereas at Whistling Swan it is very easy to carry on a conversation.... More

This restaurant is always our first evening meal when we get to Door County. I'm a vegan and those with me weren't. Food options were plentiful and really delicious. Great beer and wine list too. Love the ambiance on both the porch and main dining room.

There are a lot of wonderful places to eat in Door County, and Whistling Swan is among them. Definitly ask for seating on the porch. You can people watch on the shopping street below. The atmosphere is casual, as would be expected in a tourist area, butthe service is attentive, the menu, though small, is creative and eclectic, and the... More

The Whistling Swan is always a memorable and special experience. The service is top notch and they go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your meal. For example, the tiny spoons of caramel they bring you after dinner for something sweet! The food is exceptional - simple dishes prepared flawlessly. The pork chop is amazing, the scallops are...

We've been coming to Door County for 20 years. We've always walked by the Whistling Swan but never went in. I am so glad we did. Everything was spectacular. We started with the beet salad....very fresh beets and mozzarella cheese and herbs and mini tomatoes. We also had the house-made sausage with a bean ragout...it was so delicious. We both... More

Fish Creek out of season finds most of the restaurants closed but happily not the Whistling Swan. We ate there once during our few days there, and spent an hour having a beer at the bar on another occasion. Although the wine list is interesting and impressive, the Wisconsin beers on tap were excellent and we stuck to them. The... More

We stayed at the Whistling Swan 3 night. The staff was so welcoming and we felt like family by the time we left. We had dinner there all 3 nights. Everything on the menu is of the highest quality As we heard the chef discussing the menu every afternoon it became very evident that much forethought is put into the... More
