We enjoyed dinner here twice while in Fish Creek for a long weekend. It was that good. Both times we were able to sit outdoors on the pretty sheltered patio. Very friendly service, good food and nice wine list. House made desserts should not be missed. We even bought some of their granola to take home. The wine bar upstairs... More

We had lunch here and the food was both healthy and tasty. Homemade soup was great. Nice waitress. Prices were good too!

Wow. This did is good. It's the only thing we had as we only came for dessert but it was worth it. It also comes with salted carmel ice cream which of course we had to buy a pint of afterwards. So so good.

If you want to rest and have a good sandwich at lunchtime this is sure a great place to do this. They have a nice outside patio that is comfortable and relaxing. We have eaten here twice at lunch time and both times were not disappointed.

This was our second time to this restaurant. We arrived on a weekday evening but they were still very busy. We had about a 20 minute wait which was fine as there was space at the bar. They have an interesting menu and great kids menu. We sat outside on the ground floor which was a very nice spot. My... More

If you are in Door County to unwind, do yourself a favor and stop at the Cookery. Outdoor dining is available on the first or second floor. Happy hour means reasonably priced small plates and beverages. Enjoy the water view and the ebb and flow of visitors to this quaint town. Ambiance, view, and quality food do not disappoint. We...

This place was awesome! The atmosphere and the food were very enjoyable. Our server was very attentive and friendly. They had a designated gluten free menu with a variety of options. Highly recommend!

We went to this place during our last visit to Fish Creek, and was not very impressive. I had the salmon and although the menu said it would be cooked medium it was overcooked but ok. My wife had the perch which was deep fried, very oily and cooked till very tough. Don't get the perch!

Thank you for your feedback regarding your visit to our restaurant. The quality of your food was certainly not up to our standards. The salmon and perch are typically two customer favorites, clearly we missed the mark in the preparation. In fact, further investigation regarding your perch led us to discover that there were some issues with the temperature of... More

Cookery has a beautiful second story outdoor patio. Lovely happy hour from 3-6 with reasonable wine/appetizers. Ryan is the most friendly and entertaining bartender in Door County! I tell him this is why we keep coming back.
