Great place for dinner on Main Street in Fish Creek. Friendly atmosphere, good food, and service. They use a lot of fresh ingredients in their food, have good local fish and vegetables, and make their own desserts (delicious!). Also recommend the home made ginger ale.

We love this restaurant. It is the best restaurant in Door County. We always go there for breakfast, lunch or dinner whenever we are in Fish Creek. They have the best whitefish chowder we've ever eaten. The food is fresh and fantastic. They use locally grown produce which is a plus. The desserts are awesome. I would recommend the cherry...

Enjoyed dinner sitting outside. Staff very attentive and friendly. I had the vegetable kabob which is available as a half entree. More than enough to eat. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Menu has many choices. They also have a wine bar. Food was very good. Hoping to try them for breakfast tomorrow.

I recently spent a week in Door County. We ate at The Cookery twice - once for lunch, once for dinner. Both meals were very good. It is a very nice restaurant with good food. The menu is a bit limited, but everything I have eaten there is good. You might have to wait for a table. Our wait staff... More

Great place too eat. Sits right in front of the Thorp House. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. The chicken dinner was excellent. Park of the main drag and walk too this place. Very little parking on Main St.

Ate here with the family for dinner and also for breakfast one morning. Both meals were delicious. Service great. Sliders and fish tacos were yummy. Hash browns and chocolate chip pancakes also tasty! A great place! Highly recommended!

This restaurant had very good food & wine but the service wasn't so good. Even though we had reservations, we were put out on the porch where we were ignored all night. There were 8 of use so they made good money on us & that's all they seemed to care about. Very disappointing.

Yum. This is always a go to spot for any meal. And if you saved room, a great place for wine and dessert!
