Location and contact

Egg Harbor is home to The Fireside Restaurant, Door County’s Cajun Supper Club. Serving reinvented comfortable classics with a fresh new twist. Pull up to our spectacular bar for a fun fabulous cocktail. Come in and try our local Maple Bourbon Old Fashioned. Executive Chef Blake Schar pushes creativity in Door County. Chef Schar is strong, solid and on-point with homey, classic comfort foods, showing favor to southern dishes that Mom use to make. Although he is not shy to admit his bias for butter and bacon, don't let the Midwest in him fool you. Chef Schar pulls on his formal training from Scottsdale Culinary Institute, searching for ways to incorporate Southwest flavors like chipotle peppers,

Fireside was recommended to us by an employee of Egg Harbor Lodge. We were glad we went. Restaurant is a cut above casual, but prices were reasonable. Husband had the jambalaya which he enjoyed but felt a few more bites of fish/chicken would have made...More
