Another Great Fish Boil!

We stopped for our Door County favorite, the Fish Boil. It was excellent as always. We love the whitefish as well as the preparation. A real Door County tradition.

From pancakes, omelets, eggs, crepes and never to forget the Anna's eggs benedict which is smothered in wonderful, cheesy cream sauce (only Sunday's). The owner and staff are there to always make sure your experience is filling. Enjoy!

For the price and presentation, this is the best bang for your buck when it comes to a fish boil. Always a tradition for us to come to Pelletier's. The staff is great.

We stopped in for lunch after some shopping in Fish Creek and we were very glad we did. The fish was very fresh and the staff was very helpful and attentive. I also enjoyed the mostly wood interior decor.

Nice fish boil. The fish man did a good job but I preferred the okd lawn and drama of Square Rigger, now closed. The cherry pie was good, better than Main Street Grocery but not as tasty as Sweetie Pie

Door county fish boil is a spectacular show...just not so tasty. The fish lacks flavor and isn't very tender. Also watch out for the bones. Still, you have to see how the fish gets cooked for once if you pay a visit to the peninsula. Make sure you make reservations.

The whole fish boil process was fascinating and the kids really enjoyed watching the process. I would agree with other reviews that the fish itself was plain and very bony. If you have never been to (or even heard of) a fish boil it is worth the trip and Pelletiers was recommended by locals. The pie was above-average. Lots of... More

We kept hearing about the famous "fishboils" so went to one at Pelletiers. The actual boil over was very interesting but none of us cared for the fish too much, too boney, too plain tasting. The rest of the food was average. Cherry pie, however, was excellent. Neat to go there and see a fish boil, plenty of seating but... More

Pelletier's has the best fish boil because of the very fresh fish & the chance to get a smaller portion.
