Great fish boil

We had the fish boil and I was expecting bland food but wa surprised by how tasty the fish and potatoes were. I ate the fish with nothing added an it was excellent. I put melted butter on the potatoes and they were quite tasty. I would go back.

had to have breakfast as this place is rated a top breakfast place in the country-mainly for the stuffed french toast. Well it was really good but a little disappointing. While the portion was large, it was stuffed with lots of cream cheese but I could count on one hand the number of cherries I found. More berries would have... More

White Gull Inn. Check the schedule. They have fish boil dinner some nights and off a menu the other nights. We enjoy both. The food is incredible. The environment is very intimate. One or two nights a week a harpist plays while you are eating. We've been coming to Door County for over 30 years and this is one of... More

The breakfast was great! We did have to wait 1 1/2 hours though, but I guess that is common on weekends! My husband ordered the french toast stuffed with cherries and cream cheese which he was was great! I would have given the review a 5, but our waitress seemed very annoyed every time she came over to our table... More

I wanted to eat here because of the stuffed cherry French toast. We got there at 8 am on a Monday and got right in--by the time we left at 9, there was a wait. Beautiful building and fantastic staff. Really good coffee. I thought the famed stuffed French toast had too much cream cheese (and I like cream cheese)... More

Great place for a couples getaway to stay (it is a hotel after all) or so I'm told by my mother(who stayed there on her honeymoon). But the breakfast at the resturant is fantastic. I Higly recommend eating here if you have a chance.

Breakfast doesn't get any better. It is a "must" visit on our annual vacation in Door County. The fabulous Cherry Stuffed French Toast now has a national reputation. The hash is great also. Eggs get done just as you ordered. You get really fine breads, and they serve honest to goodness real maple syrup. Fine coffee too.

Fabulous fish boil. Best whitefish ever - better than fancier presentations at good nearby restaurants. Great tartar sauce, cherry pie & fruit breads. Come back for fabulous stuffed french toast breakfast

This is my most favorite spot to eat in Door County and I have been going there for 15 years. I absolutley adore their food... More

I've been to Door County every summer for almost 20 years, this was my first time trying the White Gull Inn, it wasn't worth the wait. Our server was rushed and a bit rude and the food was good but not for an hour hour and a half wait midweek.
