Great breakfast and lunch!

One of my favorite stops. Wonderful food and service. There is a reason this is a must see on any trip to Door County.

We eat breakfast here often. Whenever we eat breakfast elsewhere around the US or around the world, we say "not as good as The White Gull."

Doesn't matter what time of day the food is always good here. I love their breakfasts. They are famous for the fish boil if you like that sort of thing. Good to try once in a lifetime. Service is always excellent. As long as weather is nice there's lots of nice places to sit outside while waiting for a table... More

We always stop here several times when we visit Door County. Our favorites are the delicious breakfasts. Omelets that are light and huge filled with your choice. The fluffy pancakes are perfect. The coffee cakes are to almost cry over they are so big and tasty! They have a cherry coffee cake that could feel 4 but it will be... More

My mother, sister, and I ate here this morning and everything was delicious. I had the 1/2 order of cherry stuffed French toast with bacon; my sister had the 1/2 order of apple French toast with eggs; and Ma had the farmer (I think) omelet. We all left plenty full and very happy. The wait was also only about 20... More

Fish boil was good mostly for the theatrics and atmosphere. Food at fish boil is average, but now I've finally had a fish boil. Friend said it was better than any other in Door Co. Breakfasts are amazing. Make sure you have their coffee cake.

We've come to the White Gull for breakfast and lunch a number of times. The food is always good. We choose to go there because they have gluten free options and are able to accommodate our dairy-free diet as well. The service is a weak point for them though. In the five visits we've had there, we only had one... More

Love the White Gull Inn in Fish Creek. We go there every time we visit Door County. Went to a fish boil which is just okay because all fish boils are just okay. We love them for their breakfast!! Yummy!!

My mother and I went to the White Gull for a wonderful birthday lunch. We couldn't decide what to order since so many things caught our eye, so we ordered an assortment to share. We started with the Carrot Ginger soup on special for the day and it was fabulous. Their homemade soups never disappoint me. Next we split the... More

We've been visiting the Inn for decades. Stayed there twice and, when it's a special day, we get up early to make it there for breakfast. NBC named it the best place for breakfast in the U.S. a while ago. We were there that morning. Andy and his wife are the best. Visit them before they retire.
