Stop by for the Fish Boil

We have eaten here in the past and the food was reasonably priced and service was good. I think the main attraction is their evening fish boils. Even if you do not like fish - or are not planning to eat there be sure to walk around back and watch the fish boil take place. One of the owners was... read more

We love the fish boils here---always so much fun. The whitefish tastes like lobster. Half the fun is watching the boil itself, with all of the people enjoying themselves. Very cozy dining room, and the cherry pie for desert is awesome. You can never go wrong dining at Pelletier's for the famous Door County Fish boil. This was my first... More

Quite an experience and it was a nice evening to be with other guests to drink wine and watch the preparation of the Fish Boil. The fish, potatoes, onions, with bread was a tasty dinner; the cherry pie was an additional treat. Corn on the cob would have been nice.

Fish boil is a unique tradition local to Door county in Northern Wisconsin. It is also a seasonal item that is not offered year round. If you are in the area and have never tried it or seen the "show", I do suggest you go check it out. Make sure you call ahead to make reservations thou. Some may complain... More

Everyone we talked to recommended that we do a fish boil in Door County. Reviews for Pelletier's were good, so we went there. The food was average, but worth the fun experience. Reservations are recommended - we needed reservations even in the off-season in October.

Needs Reservations. The restaurant puts on a nice show specially enjoyed by kids where the big pot of Fish Boil is on fire. They answer any questions you might have. The fish boil is tasty served with garlic butter, bread and cherry pie - Nice experience

I went to Door County, Wisconsin to photograph fall foliage at Peninsula State Park. After spending the day at the park (with temperatures starting at 34 degrees in the morning), I was frozen to the bone and hungry. My travel companions suggested Pelletier's for the fish boil. It was a Saturday evening and pretty crowded but we were able to... More

Worst service we've ever had in Door County. We waited over 30 minutes for our food and our waitress was rude , to say the least. Good food but not worth the poor service.

The owner is the cook at the fish boils - narrates what he is doing and why at every show. Great cherry pie- from Seaquist. It is a bit hard to find a table at the 30 min shift changes as the next group is served their meal. We were there the last weekend of the summer - that seriously... More
