Very nice restaurant with an interesting history of the current building. Try the Whitefish Chowder; it's really good. Love the chick pea sandwich and the Rachel. Wish they offered their roasted squash soup more often.

Four retired women ate lunch here. We all ordered something with whitefish. We were all pleased, and enjoyed a selection of food unique to area. It was very busy on weekend we visited!

The Cookery provides small plates/tapas in the upstairs di I g room and entrees in the lower level. The ambience is pleasant with wood and warm colors. My partner thoroughly enjoyed her Walleye dinner. It was cooked perfectly with a sweet, p,easy t flavor. My Whitefish entree included pesto, wild rice and squash. It was perfect.

Had dinner here. We ordered the steak special medium and it came out raw. It was served with a baked potato and squash. The squash was sliced with the skin and while it tasted OK, it was cold. The potato was served whole without butter. I tried to over the chicken but at 6:15pm they had already run out. Ordered... More

It had been a number of years since we visited Door County. In the past, a visit to Door County always included a stop at the Cookery. Since our last visit, the Cookery was completely destroyed by fire and was completely rebuilt. The new building has a casual atmosphere about it as did the original one and has second floor... More

Went for Breakfast. Excellent French toast with Cherries and Roasted Breakfast potatoes. Would definitely recommend getting there before 9 on a Saturday morning.

We came into the Cookery well after the Breakfast crowd and instead hit the late afternoon lunch group. It was very quiet and relaxing. The food was outstanding and because it was right before the happy hour 3-6 we had a wonderful seat to enjoy the "wine tasting" as the Cookery is also a Wine Bar. The service was prompt... More

Very nice-looking place with nice workers with inside or outside dining. We had a hearty breakfast and the cherry jam with biscuits was very good.

This place is busy, so you will have a bit of a wait! The. Breakfasts are worth it...can't speak for the other meals. The menu has many great choices, making it difficult to choose! The food was great. Our only complaint is that we were seated by the door to the outside seating, which was busy. Every time the door... More

We've been considering trying this restaurant out for awhile now. The waitress was very polite and friendly. The ambiance was fine except the place smells like something...I couldn't put my finger on it. Its probably a spice, and I didn't like it. My boyfriend didn't notice it, so maybe its just me. Anyways, we went here for lunch. I had... More
