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

We visited Whistling Swan to celebrate our five-year wedding anniversary. We had wanted a fine dining experience - stellar food, good wine, warm but upscale atmosphere, and solid service. This restaurant hit three of four for us. The food was very good - we enjoyed a very satisfying four-course meal. Interesting flavors and overall just solid cooking. I couldn't enjoy... More

We absolutely love this restaurant! We've eaten there several times, and ate there again for dinner twice this past week. Both times it was fabulous! We were actually only going to eat there once during this Door County trip, but it was so good that we went back again the next night. The food, wine, service, and atmosphere cannot be... More

This small hotel nestled off the main drag in Fish Creek, Wisconsin is charming and when the kitchen staff is on (which is 70% of the time) the fare is wonderful, inventive and exciting. Good wine list accompanies the food. Pricing is reasonable. Staff is down home and accommodating. I think this to be the 2nd or third best restaurant... More

My wife and I wanted to branch out from our usual favorites and try a different restaurant for our anniversary. The reviews for the Whistling Swan looked great, so we gave it a try. We were seated in the veranda which was very quaint and romantic. The service was excellent and sophisticated, which certainly complimented the dining experience. The menu... More

Fresh, mostly locally grown food prepared and presented very well in a lovely hotel. We ate in the patio. I had the stuffed tomato (vegetarian) and it was spectacular. My husband had the pork chop (butchered by the chef himself) and he said it was the best pork chop he'd ever had. Our waiter was delightful and attentive without being... More

A perfect summer evening with great company deserves the perfect dining experience. Whistling Swan provides all that and more. The menu changes regularly based on the chef's gathering of local food. The duck had a perfect sauce to give it the perfect taste. The vegetarian dish was given the right amount of spice to give the dish great flavor. Placed... More

The restaurant and setting are quite nice. The food is good, not great. Our waiter was sub par, when we inquired about menu items, he didn't know, didn't care or was not interested enough to get answers to our questions. The Fluke Taco was presented without the sauce, he did not notice until it was at the table and we... More

We had scallops as our appetizer. They were prepared with cashew paste, mushrooms, radishes, and pod peas. The combination was outstanding. Our entrees were the blackened barramundi and pork chops with orange/chipotle sauce. Again, outstanding. For dessert we had a fruit pandowdy. All of the food was presented beautifully and the flavors were delightful. Our waitress suggested just the right... More

My partner and I had a very good summer dinner on the (enclosed) porch at Whistling Swan on a visit in July. Excellent, knowledgeable service. Good wine list, tasty preparations. Chic, comfortable ambiance.
