We had the ribs and tempura shrimp. Both dishes were very tasty. The setting was quaint and relaxing. Patrons enjoying a beverage at the bar were friendly and engaging. We will return.

It might not appear to be much driving by, but when you stop in and sit down... Friends--you'll be glad you did! Everything is fresh and homemade from salad dressings, to bread, to coleslaw etc. We had the Walleye and it was a strong choice. Service was speedy and friendly. Price was right. And the decor matched the Door County... More

Great service from a very efficient waitress who manged the entire dining room, however, she over charged us for one entree. Quickly took it off the bill when when we asked about the charge. The food, however, was lacking. Neither of us enjoyed our chicken entrees. Perhaps we ordered the wrong food. Diners, who looked like regulars, were enjoying their... More

We took the time to drive a little out of our way to enjoy a good perch sandwich. Both accompanying choice of coleslaw or fries were very good. The wait staff was extremely friendly. Ending with that day's special of homemade peach pie was delightful.

Go to the fish boil on Friday or Saturday night! We were celebrating our anniversary and had one of the best meals and overall experiences at a restaurant we have ever had. The owner and his wife host a fish boil every Friday and Saturday night and the fish boiler, Cody, boils some of the best fish we have ever... More

We came for a traditional Wisconsin fish dinner, and it was all we hoped for and more. The restaurant is cozy, with knotty pine paneling, checkered tablecloths and a fantastic crew. The meals we had were fresher, lighter, and more flavorfull than the average supper club fare, and just a little hip without overdoing it - a perfect blend of... More

Atmosphere is a bit in need of an update. I had the fisherman's catch and loved it. My husband had the $15 burger (that's what it's called and how much it costs) Not impressed with that. Decent service.

Visiting Sturgeon Bay, WI (doorway to Door County) and looking for a good restaurant we of course check Trip Advisor to see what is recommended... We opted for the Cabin - the drive along Bay Shore Drive was nice...some beautiful homes and glimpses of the Bay... Restaurant is small, service was slow, but the food was very good. We ordered...

I ate here on a Fri night with my mom and sister. It is a little off the beaten path, but the drive was interesting since there are a lot of big houses along the bay. The parking lot was small, but full. We sat at the bar for a drink and enjoyed a delicious old fashioned made the right... More

We've been happy to have a few meals at The Cabin and it's one of our favorites. Anyone traveling to Door County, Wisconsin should not miss this wonderful little place. The food is fantastic - be sure to call for their nightly specials. And the desserts...wow! Dangerously good! One our most recent visit, we found out they had added New... More
