We decided to experience what we had heard was the oldest restaurant in town. It's got an 1886 fireplace, historical charm and memorabilia, a lot of beautiful dark wood, arched doorways, an impressive collection of ring buoy life preservers with photos of the ships they're from, and the staff is friendly and they enjoy sharing stories. We had a very... More

we had burgers and chicken strips. the chicken strips are enough to share. The server was so nice and she was the only one there but we never waited for anything. She even took the time to show us old menus on the walls.

We stopped in as our first meal in Door County, on a whim. the waitress was friendly but the food was not very good. the fish seemed frozen/re-heated, the buffet was very low quality and the overall atmosphere just says old. Not a place I would visit again.

A sorry spot. We were sent here by locals. Almost empty and we now know why. What we were served was literally home-made, but nothing we would have ever paid for, had we known.

We stopped in for fish and was not disappointed! Our waitress was friendly and helpful and told us of the soup she had made. She brought us a cup of bacon cheeseburger soup to sample for our pleasure. What excellent soup! We could have easily made a meal out of the rye bread and soup! Nautical Inn has woodwork and... More

The place was a little creepy with dated décor. The waitress was strange too, but she did give us a free trip to the salad bar because she thought the kitchen was going to be slow. The food was so-so, and we had a noisy table of a dozen young adults near us, which didn't help.

We attended a family wedding in Sturgeon Bay & happened on the Nautical Inn. Lunch was wonderful, beer & cocktails were cold and tasty and the staff was excellent. We had so much fun we went back for the evening, plenty of music and dancing. The bar staff is great, very friendly and fun to be with. I highly recommend... More

They had great service and food, we only got a sampler basket but it was still very good! The bloody Marys were excellent also, they give you sausage sticks, cheese curds, pickles, basically a whole meal!
