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

Stopped for lunch recently. Hamburger was good, but the pulled pork sandwich was awful and the soup ok. Service was slow and prices high for portions. I had such great memories from this place, but they've changed the recipes and we won't be back.

Most people like to go to the White Gull Inn in Fish Creek as they have a phenomenal breakfast, et. al. However this place is also a very nice experience. Love the atmosphere and so clean, you could eat off the floor. Wait staff is great and helpful. Have the french toast with the cherries! Delicious and compares with that... More

The Cookery (prior to the fire) was our favorite breakfast restaurant in Door County. During the rebuilding, we found our current favorite. Thinking that it was time to return, we had breakfast with another couple. Initially we were struck by the change of their menu offerings that weren't as diverse as previously available. Service was attentive but unfortunately the uniqueness... More

Family ate at the Cookery on a late Saturday afternoon while visiting Door County. Service was excellent - quite attentive and helpful staff. Would rate 5 stars for the service alone. The food was well prepared - just not spectacular or all that interesting. Lots of fish items to choose from. Good salads - enjoyed them very much. While prepared... More
