We had such a good time going to their Fish Boil. The guy who prepared the fish boil was so full of energy, explaining the history and the process as he was going along. We made our reservation the week before and got to eat...outside on a beautiful evening. The fish (which the waiter deboned tableside) was unexpectedly tasty (put their suggested seasoning on it!). They included cherry pie for desert too, with or without ice cream!More

I'm not usually a pancace guy, but since Door County is known for their cherries, I decided to go for the Cherry pancakes and hashbrowns due to previous reviews. The waiter was very funny since the pancakes come with 1 cherry on top. He took...the time to explain that there were several cherries baked into the pancakes. He was not wrong! They were chock full of cherries! And SO good! And the hashbrowns were the best ever! So crispy! Great atmosphere and waterfront view as well!More

Loved the fish boil - everything from the pre-show to the service and food was top knot just. Would recommend highly. Advanced reservations are required.

The fish boil was a fun, interesting experience. Very informative with some history of the area. Watching the cooking process was entertaining as well. The food was very good (especially the pie!). There is a bar out back where you can purchase a drink while...you watch the fish boil. If you're not a fish eater, there is also chicken & ribs as an option. Order that when you make your reservation. If you've never done a fish boil in Door County, you will not be disappointed.More

The Cherry Pancake stack was very delicious. One of the best pancakes I have ever had. The service was good. Look forward to having breakfast there again soon.

Definitely take in the whole experience, sit outside and see it happen! Boil Master is very informative and explains it very well, including history. The meal is so clean and fresh, Curt's Seasoning is perfect along with the butter. The fish is so fresh you...can taste it. And the Cheery pie, well let's just say, it was the perfect end to a perfect meal.More

Not only was the spectacle of the fish boil fun and educational, but the waitstaff even removes the bones at your table before serving it to you. It's the only restaurant that does that and it's worth it. The fish was delicious!

This is our first visit to Door County, Wisconsin and we stayed at the nearby Hotel few buildings away from this restaurant. It was Tuesday - around 7:00 PM when my husband and I drop by Old Post Office Restaurant for dinner. It was obviously...very busy day for this restaurant and all tables outside the restaurant are taken but inside there were so many vacant tables. A lady greeted us after we stand in front of the restaurant door and told us they are sold out and accept reservation only. She was doing something else while talking to me and never look at me at eye to eye. I never insisted and walk away. In my opinion, a restaurant is booming and very in demand in the area but should not refuse any customer regardless who they are. I thought, it is very rude to say that we only accept reservation when there is no sign posted anywhere. We just walk away and told my husband will never eat in this restaurant even if this is the most in demand in the area.More

Went for a small breakfast, but ended up ordering full since it looked so good. Great service. We had been here before for a Fish Boil and were impressed, but didn't have enough time this trip.

We had the most wonderful breakfast there! The pancakes with Door County cherries are some of the best I've ever had. My daughter's had cherry waffles with lots of cherries and whipped cream on top. What a treat! Spoil yourself and have breakfast there one...morning!More

We had it last year in late October. So September shouldn't be a problem.
