Had breakfast on a Saturday, mid-morning. Walked in with no wait (hour wait at White Gull Inn down the street). Waiter was friendly, prompt, and attentive. Food was average - had pancakes, eggs, toasted bagel w/cream cheese.

This was only our second fish boil (the first was over 13 years ago). Several people told us they were disappointed at Fish Boils in Door County this summer so I did a little research before our visit and we decided on Pelletier's. That was a good choice! The restaurant is very nice. Glad I did research and made reservations... More

Fish boil was awesome! I wasn't a huge fan of the actual fish. But I am not a big fish eater to begin with but my husband is. He loved the fish and it is a great value. You get fish, potatoes, bread, coleslaw, pie and beverages all for $18. Also you get to watch your food being cooked! It... More

I've tried at least three different fish boils in Door County, and Pelletier's is by far the best. Arrive at least 1/2 hour before your reservation, get a drink at the bar and head out back to watch the fish boil. It is very entertaining, and these cooks are masters. The fish and potatoes are wonderful. Service is good, as... More

My boyfriend and I wanted to experience a fish boil, but there are so many places that do it up here and have great reviews. Many people spoke highly of this place, so we decided to check it out. They do fish boils every 1/2 hr starting at 4:30 daily. Reservations are made for when you will eat, then be... More

We have never been to a Fish Boil and Pelletier's was recommend to be one of the best. We were told the story of the fish boil and then watched the process take place. I am not a big fish lover but I had to try this. What a great meal. The fish tasted like lobster to me. They serve... More

We had to try a fish boil while in Door County and chose Pelletier's because they offered one almost every night and several boils each night. They have a nice area behind the restaurant where the actual boil takes place, with benches and tables while you wait or watch. The guy who does the boil is a native of the... More

Kind of pricey and we didn't care for the bony Whitefish fillets that were a tad "fishy" tasting. The best part was enjoying a beer while watching the kettle boil the food. The cook was there to talk to everyone and answer any questions about the fishing industry and fish boil process. More entertaining than anything - the food itself... More
