A slice of old Door County

Hidden away on County B a few miles north of the shipyards in Sturgeon Bay. This is a classic Wisconsin bar and restaurant that got famous for doing one thing very well - hamburgers. They do have plenty of other selections, but we have never gotten any further down the menu. Just good ground... read more

Great food at this bar - restaurant. Nice place to have a drink before sitting down for dinner. Steaks are great and lobster can't be beat - all at a very reasonable price.

From the outside this really did look like a typical old style Wisconsin bar and restaurant. As you enter the front door the bar is right there. We went for dinner. I guess we just didn't order the right thing........should have gone with a burger. My husband got a hot ham and cheese sandwich.........and that is exactly what he got:... More

We stopped here for a drink last year while on a road trip and the proprietor was very friendly so we decided to stop again this year. Same friendly service, good drinks, and a fun time.

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.
