We stopped here for breakfast on a recent weekend getaway. Had always heard about the fish boils, but we never tried their breakfast. Very happy we did. Very nice all around. Service was great, restaurant was clean and very nicely decorated. We had the "County Mounty" breakfast special which was fantastic and hit the spot. 3 eggs, crispy hash browns,... More

Came here for the fish boil. We had been here for one about twenty years ago, and remembered it fondly. The only thing different was that this time we could watch the process up close, since it didn't rain like the last time. A spectacular show, which culminates in a plate with two 7 oz. Whitefish steaks, a couple of... More

We ate there for the Fish Boil. Of course, there are many fish boils in the area. We were told to try this one by a group of people from the Green Bay area. It was interesting and fun and the white fish was firm and tasty. You get to watch as they prepare the fish, potatoes and onions you... More

Everyone said a "fish boil" was not to be missed when visiting Door County Wisconsin -- and they were right! What a fun experience to watch the preparation with anticipation of the finale of the boil over! The meal turned out to be a delectable new experience also. Being from the eastern coast -- good seafood is a part of... More

Great show and lots of fun watching the fish boil. The main guy is very welcoming and lets you ask questions. Quite the show when they do the boil over. Fresh fish and sides. Good food. Be aware that they leave the skin on and with the pin bones intact. You have to be a surgeon to get to the... More

Enjoyed the fish boil show/meal, very interesting and very good but watch the bones! Boiled potatoes and onions with butter that cook with the fish were great. Wife opted for the chicken which was outstanding! Maybe just a little on the pricey side, but a very good meal topped off with a nice piece of Cherry pie. Quite busy even... More

Went over Labor Day weekend to the Fish Boil at Pelletier's. We arrived right as the fish boil was starting and my husband had a chat with the owner about the process. You can tell that he loves what he does. The show when the fish pot Boils over is fun. There is a heat rush that you may want... More

The fish boil as cuisine was good but it was the experience that made the meal. Don't leave Dorr County without experiencing a fish boil. At Pelletier's the Boil is enhanced by the explanation and instruction of their experienced boiler. The setting is great, the explanation was informative the "boil over" was exciting and the food was good. Don't miss... More

Their breakfast is wonderful (5 stars), including all your favorite items. Their pancakes are light, fluffy and very tasty for a reasonable price. Evenings in the summer are limited to only fish boils (2 stars), with reservations. We didn't really enjoy the fish boil food, although the cooking was fun to watch.
