Where the locals go

This is by far the best restaurant in Door County. Right outside the windows waves are crashing along the Lake Michigan shore. If it's available, ask for the little room off the bar. It's warm and cozy and each table has a view of the water. The bar has a roaring fire on cold winter nights... read more

Made reservations for 930PM on Valentines Day. (We called the day before.) Kindly, the hostess called us the day of, to advise they had a cancellation for 830PM and asked if we would like to move it up an hour. Of course! We started with the lobster cakes, YUM! We each had the filet and shrimp. The shrimp were large... More

Great food and nice atmosphere for a great evening in Door County. Monday's Lobster special is worth every bit it's price. Love the way they treat you special on your Birthday and all the time!

Beautiful setting, really second to none in the Sturgeon Bay area. The restaurant is consistently busy however because of the quality of the food coming out of the kitchen. Great steaks - you can't go wrong with their signature dinner - and the prime rib night is good also, and they have stiff competition with prime rib dinners in Sturgeon... More

We've dined here several times now and it NEVER disappoints. In fact, in my 69 years I've never had a better steak than the 10oz Fillet w/Glidden sauce. It is so good you will groan (as I did) when you eat it!! I promise! In fact, of the wonderful steaks from well know steak houses I might place this 1st.... More

We've come here for dinner on many occasions and the food is always excellent. The steak is the best I've had and I've had steak in most major cities in the country. The best part about this place is its location and ambience. It's a stone building with a stone fireplace inside. It's located right on the shore of Lake... More
