My wife have been for many dinners but the last time we were here was the best. Celebrating a birthday there we were both treated excellent. We also found that dining here in the off season is better than the busy summer months. The food is on par with any of the many supper clubs scattered throughout Door County. We... More

Been to Door County numerous times and never stopped here because of an inherent dislike for British food. Since not many options in late March thought we would try their cuisine. Pleasantly surprised with the large menu and substantial portions. Ordered fish and cooked perfectly and was locally fresh. Being Friday in lent did not order meat but noticed most... More

We ate there on a Saturday night. The service was very good, staff all friendly and knowledgeable. I am English, and while the food was clearly for the American market, the atmosphere was reminiscent of an English restaurant and the unhurredness of the meal was refreshing. I had the pork chop, very juicy and falovorful, my husnband had fish. The... More

We arrived with a party of 7 on 3/14/14 for their signature fish fry. We were promptly seated with a long wait between drink order and service. This lag continued throughout the meal and one of our party suggested we call for a pizza delivery as the service was so slow. (2 1/2 hours total). Soup, salad and bread basket... More

Disgusting and disappointing. To start off, plates were dirty. Salad was old and rotting iceberg lettuce. My boyfriend has the Filet and it had no flavor. The lobster was tough and brown with over salted drawn butter. Side of mushrooms were canned, bland and dirty tasting. The double baked potatoes were clearly frozen and rewarmed. They were SUPER overcooked, dry... More

This place is just beautiful! We were given a table in front of a warm, cozy fireplace that felt so good after a cold day of skiing in Peninsula Park. Service was outstanding and the food excellent. We had the beef wellington and the pecan halibut as recommended by our server Coreen. The spinach salad with hot bacon dressing was... More

We make this a Friday "fish fry" destination whenever we are in the area. Once again the fish was excellent, I had the Walleye, my wife the cod. They advertise all you can eat but the portion that they provide is more then enough. We also like the bar area, reminds me of an old time supper club. It was... More

We dined there on Saturday night after Thanksgiving. Excellent charm to the character of the building, inside and out. We were seated overlooking the koi pond. The service was excellent and the prime rib was the best either of us had ever had. We were also very impressed with the quality of our old fashioned mix. Truly a very delightful... More

I've eaten here maybe 20 times, mostly because my grandparents enjoy it so much. It's one of the nicer restaurants in DC, but it's not "high-end" like Waterfront, etc. The restaurant has English-style decor, lots of dark wood. It is supper-club-style dining, with large separate bar to enjoy a proper pre-dinner cocktail, and for an after-dinner drink as well. There... More

1 star, I wish I could just give half a star. We've been to this place in the past and absolutely loved it but tonight was an experience that left us never wanting to go back. We went with a party of 4 adults and 1 child. Our waitress was nice but had to leave us mid order 4 times... More
