Friendly Bar....

I found this place by accident as I was attending a large corporate gathering at a hotel down there street and I felt the need to escape. This was the perfect answer for what I was looking for...the typical "Wisconsin Tavern". The interior was warm and the staff friendly. They had a great bar with... read more

We were looking for a place to eat a late lunch and we were going to go to a place down the street but they were closed and thank god they were or we wouldn't have stopped at this little jem of a pub. I love Nautical things myself and this was a great place to stop. We had burgers... More

Found place by accident. Just driving around town and it looked interesting. We sat at the bar and ate. Excellent food-had The Galley (warm club on toast) and Port Burger (swiss bacon burger). We both got a ton of bacon on our sandwiches. They used real turkey and ham, not sandwich meat slices. Burger was very tasty-one of the best... More

On our winter vacation we were searching for a new place to eat, and are so glad we stopped here! The food was both plentiful and delicious, and our server was terrific. The Inn is the oldest inn in Door County, with original decor dating back to the 1800s. Our server in her spare time was happy to tell us... More

Over Thanksgiving weekend, my wife and I found ourselves in Sturgeon Bay around dinner time on a slow Saturday. Sturgeon Bay appears to not have many dining options unless your appetite consists of fast food. Figuring that most pubs have good food, we decided to proceed inside (after seeing their chalk board menu from the outside glass on the door).... More

The most charming bartender waited on us and our friends. She is truly dedicated to customer service and with a smile.

Come in once a year to watch the Badgers on the Saturday before our Packer game tickets. Lots of nostalgia, nice family business and good drinks. Only reason it's 4 stars instead of 5, is last year they gave out Jell-O shots in syringes with each touchdown, and this year nothing. Bummer.

All staff are trained to make an amazing Bloody Mary. We went on a Friday afternoon and experienced these bloodies and amazing service from Jeanine and Laura. They even shared some spooky history about the iconic place.

Happened upon The Nautical Inn. We were not familiar with Sturgeon Bay and where just looking for a place to grab a bite to eat for dinner that was not high end nor a bar. The Nautical Inn seemed to fit the bill. The menu is basic dinner fare from a selection of appetizers, entrees, wraps, sandwiches, pasta and fish... More
