I love the Door County cherry french toast for breakfast and get it every time. You wont find anything like it anywhere else. Portions are generous. Good menu. They do a fish boil at dinner. On busy summer weekends the wait for breakfast is over an hour.

Please note that this property is currently closed and under renovation. Many of the buildings with suites have not been updated. The Inn is for sale, and may not open for the 2015 season. I have dined at the restaurant for breakfast many times, and the food was quite good. This was not an option, unfortunately, during this trip to... More

The White Gull in is a classy B&B with an equally sophisticated restaurant which offers the best breakfast in Door County. In addition to the quality of the food, they have a top notch staff who do their utmost to make it a memorable experience for the guests. My favorite is their hash brown which is offered plain and as... More

I absolutely love the white gull. It's adorable on the outside and on the inside. It's an extremely popular place, so you may have to wait. But I feel like it's totally worth it. The cherry stuffed French toast is to die for and I love the loaded hash browns! My friends came to door county to visit, so I... More

Ordered the 1/2 order French stuffed french toast. Plenty! Was not warm at all. Would not even melt butter. Told the server. She apologized and took it to the kitchen to warm it up. When it the plate returned it was adequate but not great. Plus being cream cheese stuffed french toast it was now soggy. Took a piece of... More

We've stayed at the Inn a number of times and always enjoy the setting and food, especially the breakfast. We could not make the fish boil this time, but the breakfast, as usual, was terrific. Our adult kids knocked theirs off with great gusto. The corned beef hash is exceptional (even though I have seen comments about it being "burned"... More

Have tried their food a couple of times and have not been disappointed. It can get pricey, but in Door County that is not rare. The place itself can get a bit "pretentious" with a decidedly older, more established clientele. Don't know when we'll be back in, but it is not on our list of favorites. Try it, it may... More

We always visit the White Gull Inn while in Door County, usually for lunch. The lunch menu offers salads, sandwiches as well as breakfast items. The Doorwich sandwich is particularly tasty. And the cherry pie is outstanding, an absolute "must have" when in town.
