Too much to say about how fun this place is - just stop in for a few beers - it's like drinking in an antique shop - the memorabilia throughout is awesome.

Out of all the places in Door County to grab a bite and a beer this was our favorite. Great atmosphere and people. Limited menu but what we had was good.

It was great to walk in and see all the old antiques! Great bar staff!! Food was fast and yummy. Getting to use the antique games was so fun. I wasn’t sure if they worked and they did which was exciting.

My girlfriend & I stopped in for dinner, both the bartenders were men and they completely ignored us. The bar wasn't that busy for them to take a moment & tell us that when were ready to place our order come up to the counter...and they'll help us. Instead they kept their backs to us & completely ignored us. After 10 minutes of sitting there another group of 4 ladies came in and sat at the table next to ours. They waited 5 minutes and I heard them wondering why they hadn't been waited on yet. I turned around & told them our story and that we were just about to leave when they walked in. After a few more minutes the younger male bartender looked directly at them & told them to order at the counter when they were ready. Again still not addressing us so I said were leaving. The group of other ladies said they too were not getting a good feeling about the place so all 6 of us left. I highly don't recommend this place. The help has a bad attitudeMore

I love the ambiance and the bar there. Food is ok, burger and bagged chips. Nothing fancy. Best thing about here is its open late once the rest of Door County closes at 7pm.

Stopped in around 6:00 one night. There was an obnoxious group of what appeared to be owners at the end of the bar that were more concerned about their own conversations rather than the customers. The bartenders were involved in the conversations and just about...ignored us. Ordered a burger, hot dog and chicken wings. Never saw the chicken wings since the bar tender was hob nobbing with the owners. Took more than 30 minutes to get the food with no other customers in the bar. Not busyBurger was ok, hot dog terrible. Not a place I would head back to.More

Good place to go for a beer or drink especially on a nice evening since they have excellent outdoor seating.

Good place, but nothing special . They have limited seating on the front porch, which is dog friendly. Its a good spot to people watch!

I've always wanted to stop here because it looks so fun from the outside. We went inside for a drink while we waited for the supper club across the street to open up. There is definately a lot to look at in here. Like setting...a bar in the middle of an antique shop. I was a little concerned that there were so many people squashed into such a small space. They had plexy glass all the way around the bar to protect the bartenders, but nothing to protect the patrons from each other. Tables were close together. My daughter & I sat at a table but a couple came in while she was at the bar ordering our drinks and plopped down across from us, announcing, "We're just here to pick up some take out." Rude. We moved to the bar. I wouldn't want to eat here. The music was loud and my Old Fashioned was served in a plastic glass. Bummer.More

They said food served till 8 pm. Got there at 6:45pm and told kitchen closed. The bartender told us to go down the street to Cornerstone Pub to get something to eat. Will not be coming back to this place
