I Can't Believe I Ate the Whole Thing

1. Good prices: $14 for fish boil all you can eat, which included fish, potatoes, onions, cole slaw, bread, coffee, and apple dessert. $15 will get you bbq chicken and the fish dinner. $18 will add ribs to the plate. 2. Good food: The fish is amazingly good with no fishy flavor. The cole slaw is... read more

It was our first experience with a fish boil and we were very pleasantly surprised. Full bar and all you can eat fish (you can add chicken and ribs for a small upcharge) We've eaten there many times and have never been disappointed. Be forewarned its CASH ONLY no plastic accepted

My husband loves the fishbowl which is boneless cod boiled with onions and potatoes door county style. Butter poured over all. I prefer the barbecued chicken and ribs. Excellent coleslaw. Like to sit on the deck on a pleasant evening.

We visit here regularly because the food is exceptionally good. It is a quaint old house converted into a pleasant dining experience. Nothing fancy or elegant. Just very friendly service and great food. Fish is served buffet-style by a server who will dish up the cole slaw, boiled potatoes and onions and of course the fish. It is all you... More

Haven't had a fish boil for a very long time, in Door County, and this was as good, if not better. From the warm greeting at the door to the service and wonderful food, I cannot wait to return. Considering this was Mother's Day, I was amazed at the quality of service and food. OUr server was so kind and... More

Fitzgerald's aka Octagon House is a great place for fish boil! There is seating on two floors and a patio. Food is served on both floors so you don't have to run up and down every time you want more. You can watch them boiling the fish, potatoes and onions in a big iron kettle over a roaring fire. There... More

Door County Fish Boil, BBQ Chicken and BBQ Ribs - All you can eat! Everything is cooked outdoors on open fire! Amazing food! Leave your credit card at home because they accept cash or your personal check only. An ATM is in the lobby for convenience.

Have been there before and it is always the same. Good cod, chicken, and ribs. The food is really good, the service is very good and it's a pretty cool house. No bad comments.

This was a unique, octagon-shaped Victorian home turned into a family-run restaurant with a difference: they serve only boiled fish, barbecue chicken, and barbecue pork --- all cooked over the open wood fire right out in their backyard. I have always wondered about fish boils on our trips up to Door County, but never actually tried one till we were... More

Always good,inexpensive, fish,barbecue chicken and ribs, very simple, in an old octagon house in a very small town. You can sit outside in warmer months. Fun for whole family. Consistently very good!
