A special Place

This is one of our very favorite places to dine. They have a very nice menu. Only serve wine and maybe beer. Also do a fine Fish Boil. Lovely dining rooms. It is also an inn.

We were told by friends that "we had to have breakfast here". Not impressed. Food was good but not better than we can get back home. I would not go out of my way to have breakfast here. Place was very crowded when we left so maybe i missed something.

In our opinion this is by far the best restaurant in Door County, and it is even open in the winter. (winter in Door County is great) I don't know what else to say, breakfast , lunch or dinner- it is all great.

The best breakfast in Door County! Come early if you don't like to wait. Wait staff is efficient and friendly and the food is delicious. Enough said.

Our family ate here for an authentic Door County fish boil, and it was great! Not only can you see them perform the boil outdoors, but they also explain the history of the fish boil. The white fish was very delicious, as was the cherry pie for dessert! I HIGHLY suggest making reservations well in advance, and also arriving early... More

Host was not the most pleasant, however everyone else was. You are able to sit on an outdoor patio while you wait for your table and have coffee there! Food was very good, stuffed French toast for my wife and Corn-beef hash and eggs for me. The hash was excellent. Another pleasant surprise was the price. Not expensive at all.... More

We arrived by 7:30 am on a Saturday and were seated immediately. By the time we left, the wait was close to 45 minutes. The dining room is very nicely appointed and service was very good. I would definitely recommend the cream cheese and cherry stuffed French toast. It is not as sweet as it sounds, but adding a protein... More

When I was in Door County by myself, I ate lunch here every day. Whether it was soup or sandwich or a salad, all were amazing. There was always enough for a doggy bag, so my dinner was already prepared. Occasionally, I would splurge on a dessert. Yum! I don't think that I ever had a bad meal. When I... More
