A Charming Wonderful Place

A very romantic place with a wonderful menu. While the selection is small it is plenty for anyone. Grilled Kale salad and warm marinated olives. Fish special was perfect. Sorbet with peanut butter cookie was amazing.

The atmosphere is wonderful and peaceful. The food however was oversalted to the point I couldn't eat it. I did tell our server and she did take the dish off the bill, however I had to get by on bread and salad for the meal.

By far the most stuck up staff in all of Door County. From the greeter telling us that we needed a reservation but we can sit at the bar and see if people show up (the 30 minutes we were there two tables were being used) to the bartender that took away our appetizer when half of it was still...

Among the many excellent dining options Door County offers, the Whistling Swan stands head and shoulders above. The menu is never very long, but it changes frequently relying almost exclusively on suppliers from Door and its surrounding counties. Its freshness, originality, and inventiveness has as yet to disappoint. The wine list offers a great variety of original and interesting picks... More

Went here on a November evening when it was warm enough to walk around outside with a big sweater. We had a reservation, I always make one here. So, we had asked for the porch, which was available, since it wasn't too cold. Very cozy and full of ambiance. Had a wonderful wine selection! Then, we were brought some wonderful... More

Quaint dining room, great service and best Prime Rib I ever had. Rotisserie roasted served over a combination of rustic roasted beets, brussel sprouts, mushrooms and mashed potatoes. We were served a sample a chilled heirloom tomato curry soup and a savory herb popover which were delicious. Finished our meal with the raspberry sorbet capped with a toasted marshmallow sauce....

The atmosphere is cozy and calming (we chose to sit at the bar) and Ellie provided outstanding service to us. She explained and offered us samples of several wines before we ordered a bottle and was extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about their menu items. The food was also wonderful- from the gazpacho taster to the made-to-order cheddar donut dessert... More

This restaurant does not have a large menu but the dishes are delicious. I got the Bolognese pasta and the Short Ribs. Both were perfectly prepared and so flavorful. The Pasta were fresh made and cooked perfectly. My husband got the beet and apple salad and the mahi - both fabulous. Our waitress was wonderful.

My mom and I were up in Door County for work and we wanted to have one nice relaxing meal while there. We certainly went to the perfect place and the food was outstanding.
