Wedding anniversary dinner site chosen by celebrating couple. Variety of menu items chosen - all were terrific. I had mussels served in a creative Asian curry flavored cream with mushrooms. Very good. Service excellent. View overlooking bay fabulous. Would return for sure.

We had a great recommendation for this place. We went there for lunch was not impressed. Decor dated and found ok. Service ok too. Maybe it's better at dinner. There are better places to go on Door County
