Classic Door County

A "must eat" restaurant for Door County visitors. Historic with very good food. Favorite meal here is always breakfast. Don't miss the hash browns!

We made reservations for the Wednesday fish boil at 7:00. It was pouring rain, but the large umbrellas still made viewing the fish boil fun and enjoyable. The fish boiler guy was knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. Once seated, we dug in. I am not a fish lover, so the salad with fresh fruit was delicious for me. My... More

I know, I know, a fish boil is something for first-time visitors to Door County. You go to one and never again. Apparently, the folks at White Gull Inn didn't get the message because the fish boil they put on is so good I come for it every time I visit Door County. They use good quality white fish and...

We waited for an hour to be sat at this Door County staple and it was worth the wait. While we waited we were sat outdoors in a cozy outdoor cafe setting. It was a gorgeous summer morning and there was a heavenly coffee cart. I ordered the stuffed french toast and my husband had the corned beef hash. We... More

Beautiful place to dine. The food was good, we ordered too much and had to take half with us. Generous portions. We had the stuffed French toast for breakfast, very good but very rich and sweet. Nice for a breakfast that we wouldn't usually find.

Was recommended by the locals for breakfast. Was not disappointed. Had the famous Cherry Cheese Stuffed French Toast, excellent.

I've heard about the fish boils at the White Gull Inn for years, living so close to Door County. I attended my first fish boil last summer at another Door Co location, but wanted to see if the White Gull "trumped" that experience. I went June 14, and I have to say it did not live up to it's expectations.... More

The food here was quite good, as I was one of the people who didn't have breakfast (which is likely quite good as well). The thing that really stood out for me though (besides the service) was the harpist who was playing on the evening that I was there... I almost didn't want to leave, it was so pleasant. I'll...

This popular dining spot has received a lot of accolades over the years. From our experience at breakfast, I would say it is worth it. We did have to wait for a table on a Thursday morning, but the outdoor coffee bar was pleasant for waiting with coffee and a great cherry coffee cake available for a food teaser. Once... More

Always a must when visiting Door County, usually for breakfast. Shared french toast stuffed with cheese cream cheese - outstanding! Also shared an order of cherry pancakes. Liked that 1/2 servings were offered.
