We ate a quick dinner here during our stay in Fish Creek and loved it. The terrace at the front is great for enjoying the evening sun and enjoying a beer. We ate burgers which were delicious and the signature glassware is so nice we bought a couple as souvenirs!

We visited over the summer and were quite impressed. Several people in our group are vegetarians and they have a huge selection of options for them. We tried the eggplant fries and they were awesome! The main courses were good..I wouldn't say excellent but I would love to go back and try the Friday Fish Fry!

"The cherrywood bacon is outstanding! We also enjoyed eggs, pancakes, hash browns. While the restaurant was busy, the wait staff kept up well. The two of us were seated in a row of two-some tables--one person on a chair and the other on the long booth-like seat. We like to be seated at a standalone table, but we didn't request... More

While in Fish Creek we had two meals here. Good location downtown. Nice casual place. For dinner we had the sirloin steak. For lunch soup and cheese/ham sandwich. Both time the food and service were good. Prices are reasonable. Can be noisy with small children.

We stopped in The Cookery because there was a parking spot close by (within the block). We were not disappointed with the food!! The white fish chowder was absolutely delicious!! All the other dishes ordered were wonderful, too. Servers were professional and friendly! Will definitely return!

Although in the center of Fish Creek, it had the feel of an upscale downtown diner. Bright, cozy, good food, good service. Wonderful gardens but we were a little late in the season to enjoy them. Would suggest aiming for off-meal times to avoid the long lines. Enjoyable atmosphere.

Discovered this place on our anniversary trip last year and ate here 3times in five days. We went back again this year and ate here twice in 3 days. The whitefish chowder is excellent. The have great local ingredients and well prepared meals. Prices are reasonable but on the higher end for more casual dining. Live music some nights.

We're not big fans of overly creative food pairings. We went to the Cookery as several of our other top choice restaurants had over an hour wait to be seated, but we were pleasantly surprised by the Cookery's atmosphere and immediate seating. The scallops I ordered were undercooked but had a nice flavor, and the fish and chips tasted good,... More

Ate at the Cookery for both breakfast and dinner during our last visit to Fish Creek - both were great. Dinner was first - good ambiance, had wine upstairs before dinner. Band was getting setup and we thought it be too loud - it was fine while eating downstairs. Had a salad w/apples, walnuts, chicken, gorgonzola cheese - tasty. Husband... More

My husband and I stopped here for breakfast at the tail end of a short trip to Door County. Retired Baby Boomers, we travel in "shoulder season" - fall and winter - when most other travelers also seem to be over the age of 45. So we were not surprised to see that other customers were about our age. The... More
