This is a diamond in the rough, or more a secret great place. I have stayed here for long weekends/vacation weeks and had a couple meals at the standing room only restaurant. The owners are truly amazing. The cottages are close to the water and the restaurant perfectly situated on the property. Lake Michigan is stunning. Every thing about this... More

The staff was friendly, but the food left much to be desired. On Monday's the menu is VERY limited...we had the burgers. Their trademark is to serve their burgers on bread...the meat itself was ok, but on sliced bread??...soggy & sloppy....what a mess! Thought we'd give it another try on Tuesday....had frog legs. They were watery and bland. Maybe their... More

The cheese curds were very good. I had the broiled fish, it was OK, not great. My wife had shrimp and they tasted like the frozen variety you get at Sam's Club. All in all, we've had better.

Heard about this place from some locals. Decided to try it out for a late lunch. Ordered the cheeseburgers and fries. burgers came out on sandwich bread and tasted great. The bar and restaurant aren't all fancy and thats the way we like it.

I have been going to this place for fish ever since I was a little kid. 30 years later it is still my favorite stop when I go to visit the area.

If you've ever wished you could find a restaurant with great food and service, look no further than this popular, well establish bar and grill. Birmingham's is a favorite in Sturgeon Bay Wisconsin, tucked away along the shoreline just north of town. The bar is a meeting place for locals - friendly and inviting with old style charm. The dining... More

Hands down, the best burgers in door county! Limited kids menu and service is nothing to brag about. We have always been happy with food but have had undercooked frog legs.

Stopped in for late night burgers. Cooked to perfection, lived that it was served on soft bread instead if a bun. The homemade fries were of a generous portion, and golden brown. I can see why this is a local favorite- the bartender knows many if the patrons , and gives a friendly greeting when you come in the door.... More

Our last night in Door County and we were looking for a good place to enjoy a famous Wisconsin Fish Fry for take out. Birmingham's was recommended by a local. We ordered the perch and shrimp dinner. AWFUL!!!! (we were very disappointed) -- $34.00 down the drain. The french fries were actually burnt. Apparently they are nothing more than a... More
